First Images of Unite for the Universe Jetpower Optimus Prime and Megatron
Posted by News Fetcher on January 25 '10 at 06:15 AM
By Tim Formas from TFW2005:
Courtesy of yizhi521 of TF08.net, the first images have surfaced for UA-01 Jetpower Optimus Prime and UD-01 Megatron from TakaraTomy's Unite for the Universe subline for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen toyline. Jetpower Optimus Prime appears to be an Optimus Prime figure with additional Jetfire armor. While the armor does not appear to transform into a robot Jetfire, it can transform to Jetfire's jet mode and be hauled by Optimus Prime in his vehicle mode. Megatron is a repaint of the original Revenge of the Fallen Voyager-mold, in a more movie-accurate paint scheme. Check out the images, albeit small, by clicking on the thumbnail to the left.

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Cybergundam Blog has updated with scans from the latest edition of Hobby Japan, which includes the unveiling of the Winter Wonder Festival Exclusive Transformer! As previously indicated by his silhouette in Figure King, this will be a redeco of The Fallen - more specifically, it is a slightly different version of the Target Exclusive "Burning" Fallen. The Fallen Blazing Edition features more or less the exact same deco and color layout as the Target version, and comes in the same packaging, however, unlike the Target version, the orange plastic on this one is translucent to simulate the effect of energy or "flames".
