Toy News: "Transformers Go!" images - Predacons and more!

in Beast Hunters, News, Prime, Transformers Go!

Thanks to BWTF sponsor Image Anime I have new images from the "Beast Hunters" follow up in Japan known as "Transformers Go!".

The first image features the animated appearance of the six Autobots who will be hunting Predacons in the anime as well as photos of their combined forms.

The second image features toy images, including some redecos of upcoming Predacons! This might mean we'll get to see certain sculpts used in animation even if they don't appear in the "Beast Hunters" series.
