Toy News: New "Unite Warriors" Computron teaser image released

TF Yuki is at it again! The one man PR team has teased another image of "Unite Warriors" Computron. This shows a more straight forward sillouette and gives us a look at osme more detailing. In particular details are called out on the chest that might suggest either new chest panels or a heavy redeco of those panels.

Stay tuned fans!
