Toy News: New "Unite Warriors" Superion image

The ever awesome TF Yuki has updated his Twitter account with an image of a production copy of "Unite Warriors" Superion combined! This set features the classic five Aerialbots combined. One of the biggest differences you'll note is the use of grey plastic for the fists and feet, which is different from the black plastic used outside of Japan. This pays homage to the G1 Superion toy in a wonderful fashion.
