Stock images for Takara-Tomy’s October Transformers Siege releases have started to pop up online, on sites such as Bic Camera’s Rakutan store, Ami Ami, and Takara-Tomy Mall. October sees three more releases hit Japanese retail:
- SG-33 Micromaster Off Road Patrol Highjump & Powertrain
- SG-34 Barricade
- SG-35 Thundercracker
All three are, as expected from Takara-Tomy by this point, completely unaltered from their upcoming US releases. This does mark the first time we’ve seen a couple of details though, including the gun mode for the Off Road Patrol (it does not look great) and some non-rendered images of Barricade. These images imply that the final release version of Barricade might lose the black forearms and calves shown on his earlier renders – we hope that this is not so, as the black nicely broke up the forearms. On the other hand, these images also show that the upcoming Caliburst Battlemaster is an excellent accompaniment to Barricade – the two seem to work very nicely together.
