The Transformers: Encore line of reissues has been dabbling in some post-G1 figures as of late, beginning with God Fire Convoy from Car Robots and to be continuing with Returns Convoy for Beast Wars Returns (Beast Machines). Now, a third post-G1 Encore toy has been revealed and is the first one to truly be from a completely non-G1 continuity altogether. Its name is Unicron (Micron Aggregate Color)
A redeco of the Armada Unicron mold, this is not the Chaos Bringer himself, but a green copy of him that was formed by a massive amount of Mini-Cons combining together as one, to fight against their evil creator in the final few episodes of the Transformers: Armada cartoon, hence the "Micron Aggregate Color" label ("Micron" being the Japanese term for "Mini-Con"). Previously, in 2004, a toy of this "Unicron of Light" had been released in limited quantities as a Lucky Draw figure over in Japan, but this Encore release will not only see a much wider release but will also sport a vastly different deco from the Lucky Draw, being almost completely green and turquoise instead of the Lucky Draw being half-teal/half-gray.Unicron (Micron Aggregate Color)
is set for release in December 2018. Official images can be found below, courtesy of Autobase Aichi
"When there's gold feathers, punch behind you!!"
“Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.” -- C.S. Lewis
