Kabaya Transformers Gum Wave 5 Protectobots in Hand Images

Defensor

Lowbcousin of HK-TF has shared a selection of images of the newly released Kabaya Transformers Gum Wave 5 Hot Spot and the Gaia Guardian combiner series. The six robots in this series – Graze / Blades, Groove, First Aid, Streetwise and newcomers Heatrock & Skyfeather variously combine to form Gaia Guardian or with Hot Spot to form God Guardian. Leave out the new guys and you can form a tiny version of the original Defensor! By the looks of these images, Defensor’s original Scramble City limb switching may even be intact – three out of the four Protectobots appear to retain their original head / arm attachment design – Streetwise was always a bit different to the rest but could his also be intact, to make this a truly scaled down version of the original 1986 vintage toy?

    Hm interesting, I wonder if they'll put out a Guard City repaint of this. Also not shown above is a 6th and 7th member who can tur into a Target Master-like weapon or also the chest components.

    That's probably about the size the Fort Max will be, too. Not terrible.

    Awesome, will go well with my WST collection. Let's hope for Stunticons, Predacons, Combaticons and Aerialbots!

    If this has the same cheap, soft plastic as the Gaia Cross Kabaya kit, then it would suck. I hope the Fort Max kit would have the same hard plastic as the main line.

    Because Kabaya is neither Hasbro nor TakaraTOMY? Kabaya make Candy Toys all the time; it is not just Transformers. Besides, Candy Toys are about 10 times cheaper than regular figures.

    In Japan, Candy Toys are a part of their culture. Candy Toys are often made as miniature versions of larger toys, so that kids can save up their pocket money to buy them, or "trick" their parents into buying them by saying that they are buying candy, chocolate, or gum; of course modern parents are much smarter, lol. But yeah, that is the entire point of Candy Toys.
