Some great news from Red leader of our sponsor Kapow Toys. He reports that the popular Transformers Henkei line, the series that the Classics and Universe 2.0 toys were released under in Japan, will be returning in December. Renamed Transformers United, the line will see the Transformers Generations line get a Japanese release. Ten releases are known so far, and the information we have received from Red leader suggests that they will also have metallic paint jobs. Whether this is in the style of the chrome on the past Henkei releases, or something more like the Takara-Tomy Transformers Animated releases remains to be seen.
The ten toys that have been listed so far are:
1) UN01 – Optimus Prime Cybertron Mode
2) UN02 – Bumblebee Cybertron Mode
3) UN03 – Cliffjumper Cybertron Mode
4) UN04 – Megatron Cybertron Mode
5) UN05 – Soundwave Cybertron Mode
6) UN06 – Optimus Prime
7) UN07 – Bumblebee
8) UN08 – Autobot Drift
9) UN09 – Megatron
10) UN10 – United Straxus
