Kabaya Gaia Scramble Gum Kits Revealed

The companion pieces to Kabaya’s Transformers Gum wave 7, Gaia Scramble, have been revealed. As speculated Gaia Scramble are the limbs for the three gestalt leaders in Wave 7 – however what has been revealed here is that Gaia Scramble will not be six limbs, but all twelve, with each kit including enough parts to be assembled into two different robots. They will all also come in two different colorations. The sets and pairings are as follows:

1 Fireflight and Skydive
2 Air Raid and Slingshot
3 Dead End and Breakdown
4 Drag Strip and Wildrider
5 Vortex and Blast Off
6 Brawl and Swindle

It is an ingenious approach that utilizes the fact that many of the Scramble City limbs shared transformations. Cleverer still is that six may also form a combined mode all of their own, in addition to forming their traditional gestalt forms. This gestalt needs an Aerialbot and a Stunticon to form the core, but then any other four can form the arms and legs.

This was revealed by way of online retailer Toy Santa. Their listing also reveals that the assortment is due for a release in August.

    Online retailer Toysanta uploaded pictures of GAIA SCRUMBLE.
    -Each mold has random 2 color schemes and can be re-assembled into two alternate characters.
    -All of them (or at least 1 airplane, 1 car and 4 limbs) combine into large robot.
    -And of course each of them can be limb of team leaders (SILVERBOLT, MOTORMASTER, and ONSLAUGHT).

    1 FIREBOLT/FIREFLIGHT airplane with single vertical tail
    or SKYDIVE airplane with double vertical tails

    2 AIR RIDER/AIR RAID airplane with retreating wing
    or SLING/SLINGSHOT airplane with forward swept wing

    3 DEAD END car
    or BREAKDOWN car (I can't recognize the difference between them)

    4 DRAG STRIPE/DRAG STRIP deformed F1 car with rear spoiler
    or WILDRIDER normal car (DRAG STRIP's spoiler becomes WILDRIDER's front)

    ? VORTER/VORTEX helicopter
    or BLAST OFF (vehicle mode is not unveiled yet but undoubtedly he becomes space shutle)

    ? BRAWL tank
    or SWINDLE (vehicle mode is not unveiled yet)

    Wow, okay, not what I expected. Especially as the 'limbs' can apparently combine to form a torso.

    This is sad so so sad. I would expect this laziness from Hasbro but not these guys. Making one set of parts-formers limbs for all 3 torsos, how much more lazy can you get.. Well canceling my preorder now.. I was excited to have 3 more kabaya combiners but they can keep those craptastic pieces of crap. How can you go from an awesome figure like Kabaya Defensor to that? Its like Hasbro had a say in how these would be made or something...

    yeah was really hoping it would be an all team of 5 combaticons or stunticons.

    not a nonsense hodge podge.

  5. MegaMoonMan's Avatar MegaMoonMan says

    So I'm guessing you have to buy two cases of these if you want all the limbs in both modes.

    Seems crappy, but I'll wait for more pics to decide.

  6. NemiMonkey's Avatar NemiMonkey says

    Well they don't look bad for what they are. It's just disappointing that you won't have a complete team for each.

  7. Taziir's Avatar Taziir says

    Unless I'm not seeing something that you guys complaining know about, it looks like we are getting 3 full combiner teams spread across several releases?

    We have the combiner leaders already announced and the list above fills out all 4 limb bots per team.

    Ignoring the new feature for a moment, does it really matter that two pairs of stunticons and aerialbots share a base mold when the add on parts will distinguish them? And hasn't Kabaya always been about the parts-forming? It looks like we'll be able to build the G1 scramable city combiners that I for one was hoping for.

    Don't forget that Kabaya sets get stickers which is where the figures should really come to life.

    The Gaia Guardian set actually avoided partsforming. I can see a couple of these do as well - suspect the others might except the Aerialbots.

    Yeah, that was my impression too. We will eventually get all the limbs over a few waves.

    Reactionary responses, in my TF fandom? Say it ain't so!
