Probably worth pointing out that the Inferno image has originated from Takara's online listing for the new version of MP Alert. Whether it means what we're all assuming it means remains to be seen, but I feel it's slightly negligent of me to have not given the context for the picture.

Still going with the MMC version in the interim, though.

Looks like Takara are redoing Combiner Wars Bruticus as Baldigus from Car Robots.

Well, I say Combiner Wars rather than UW because they seem to have gone with the Slingshot mould for Shuttler. Rather than, y'know, the brand new mould they made specifically for Blast-Off.

Mad.

Nice! And unexpected! Very tempted - so many Bruticus offerings out there now. I am a bit stuck though in that I want the space shuttle team member in any version to be, you know, a space shuttle and not a jet. So there's still only the regular Unite Warriors one which delivers... Annoying, as I'd swing towards Baldigus / Ruination or the G2 deco if either included the space shuttle Blast-Off mould.

I dunno - nice for variety. I guess? (Ignoring everything I said above...!)

It'll be interesting to see if we get Battle Gaia or the Hasbro Ruination colours at any point.

There are so many versions of Ruination to choose from...

They could also re-release Defensor as Guard City with minimal changes to the original Protectobot colour-scheme.

Do you think we'll see G2 Defensor? That would be an enjoyable eyesore!

I'm sure once Hasbro have released their Groove, it'll be in the works.

If they'd gone with the Blast Off mold, I'd probably drop my UW Bruticus preorder for this.

Out of curiosity, where'd that image come from? I haven't seen it elsewhere yet.

No clue where he got the image from. Maybe we're being punked.

Ah. The old Baldigus packaging pics are from Yuki's Twitter, so he's either just celebrating Car Robots or he's dropping hints like he did with Groove and Blast Off.

The one showing the CW figures in the Baldigus scheme isn't. I'm wondering if that's mock-up a fan may have done a bit back after we saw the Hasbro Combaticons. Wait and see, I suppose

Masterpiece Inferno prototype here

A bit too cartoon-oriented, following on the steps of Ironhide.

Looks big but no scale ref in the pic.

Unite Warriors Bruticus from the same event

Show accurate BW Exclusives, Rhinox, Rattrap and Waspinator with MP Primal proto.

Pics of the first wave of Titan Returns [Takara] with the new headsculpts. Nothing new here.

Yeah, cartoon-oriented design is rather bland. Probably going to look out for a MT one.

Yeah, not really sold from that tbh. Would need to see vehicle pics, some form of scale reference and a colour version to properly make up my mind.

As it stands I'm sticking with the MMC version. If needs be one of them can always get moved across to a shelf with Spartan and the Generations Wreckers.

...and according to some sources, there's a provisional confirmation for an MP Cheetor at the same show.
