I'd have to see some better photos for these...
Wow, I know the prices of deluxes imported from Japan usually run you 50$ a piece, but 163$ in total for three figures seems like... Well a fairly high price for deluxe figures, I remember a time it only cost 30$ for deluxe imports and I thought that was insanely high, ah good ol' Unicron Trilogy days. How I miss them.

Looks like I may have to save up some more money again, depends on when these are supposed to come out, is it sooner or in the Fall?

Re: Transformers Go! combiners

Surprisingly, I may actually be interested in these.

Based on the VERY blurry pictures up front, they appear to have a very Japanese-y Brave-ish look to them, and the triple-robot-mode makes me think of Aquarion (some other anime mech, for those who are unfamiliar).

Totally agree, it reminds me of Energon when I first saw the pictures.

Takara deluxes cost about $22-23 plus shipping right now. Also, these are more expensive because they're bigger and at least one has electronics.

Re: Transformers Go! combiners

At Takara Import prices? Easy pass.

If released at retail in Canada? Maybe, but I need to see better pics.

If they come to NA, maybe the jet one. Definitely skipping the car and firetruck.

Re: Transformers Go! combiners

Hmm. After taking a closer look at the images, it looks like these guys combine by stacking on top of each other. And they all share some very similar design elements in their robots that are probably there to accommodate their triple combiner gimmick. Not their thick, long legs that go all the way up to their chests and torso that are mostly look squashed flat. And they do look very reminiscent of the old Energon combiners, although with 3 robots now instead of just 2. I wouldn't be surprised if they even use the same, if not similar, combining port.

I probably won't bother to pick these up, but I'll be very interested in seeing how they work when they come out.

Actually, just thinking about it. I can't imagine it wouldn't take a great deal of work to customize these 3 into a post-G1/pre-BW Magnaboss(Prowl, Ironhide, and Silverbolt).
