This is a very nice surprise for the Encore line. Early in July we had information on the Encore Unicron release in December, 2018. The title “Micron Combine Color” gave us a hint of the possible deco of this release. Rather than using the original G1 colors (or the Energon black deco), fans pointed out that this title may refer to the Green Unicron (or “Unicron of Light”) based on an energy Unicron formed by the Mini-Cons who grappled with the real Unicron over Cybertron in the final episodes of Transformers Armada. A Unicron toy with a green deco was released as a rare and limited Lucky Draw in Japan back in the day, with only 10 pieces in existence.
The Takara Encore line surprises us with this release, since the deco and colors of this Unicron are fairly different from the Lucky Draw Green Unicron toy. Encore Unicron features a more cartoon-accurate shade of green. and several parts of the body, arms and legs have been replaced with clear green plastic.
Does this new Unicron please your optics? Will you be adding him into your collection? You can click on the bar to check out the mirrored images after the jump and then join to the ongoing discussion on the 2005 Boards!
