New Images of Takara Transformers Arms Micron, MP-12 Sideswipe & MP13

Postby Mach » Tue May 22, 2012 4:40 am

Motto: ""I am a Prime. I do not take orders from you!""
Japanese BBS has posted the scanned images of an unknown Japanese toy magazine on Takara Tomy version of Transformers figures.

The toys featured are upcoming Transformers Prime Arms Micron series such as Breakdown, Knockout, Starscream, Vehicon etc.

Last but not least, the prototype photo of MP-12 Sideswipe has also make an appearance, with size comparison with MP-10 Convoy. Also the magazine is teasing the silhouette of MP-13 that will make an appearance at the upcoming 2012 Tokyo Toy Show.

Hello Soundwave?

AHHH YEAHH! That gives me hope that Breakdown might still coming for the US (Hasbro hasn't said much about him in a while which worried me).

Knockout's paint scheme looking much better than the US (for once with the takara RID line.. ), but I'm curious to know how much of that is stickers..

annnnddddd I hope that is Soundwave causeI'm pretty unexcited about MP-12 to be honest, but if a US version is released I'll check em' out.

the scale of sideswipe is worth noting, hopefully the price of MP12 reflects this, looks about alternator size.

Breakdown, is that you?? :HEADHURTS: Where'd your eyepatch go???? :HEADHURTS:

We need a closer look at all of these figures, but for now they're looked promising, especially breakdown. Funny how we havent really seen him during the botcon (as far as I knew, no pictures of him aite?) and now he's all prepped up ready to go from the land of the rising sun! just gotten RID bulkhead, and now it's time for the decepticon equivalent to come into the collection.

Vehicon looks nice, especially if you go for army building and with each vehicon having their own mini-bots as partner/weapon, only the price is the main issue here (although those in Southeast Asia prolly have no probs with Tak's AM; RM9x.xx for AM deluxe in Malaysia? GRAABBBBB)

So these guys are here in the news... What happens to the Air vehicon and Thundertron?

Even with that black engine block on the hood and other AM ports, I prefer this Knockout so much more than the Hasbro paintjob.

And the names of the Microns are:

War Breakdown: Zamu (sai, or Rhino)
Starscream: ??? (Eagle)
Medic Knockout: Gura/Gra (kani, or Crab)
Decepticon Vehicon: Nozi/Noji (inoshishi, or Wild Boar)

I wonder why Starscream's doesn't show a name.
Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) BW II VS-18 Powerhug vs. Autocrusher
3) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
4) Arms Micron Terrorcon Bumblebee
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

Preparing to move to the US!

Wow, I was kinda expecting Sideswipe to be a little... taller. Not too tall, where he overtakes MP-10, but like Starscream, Grimlock, etc.; just the same height. Seeing that he's about Voyager size tells me that Takara/Hasbro is going to try something new here.

The Microns look okay... the best looking ones to me appear to be Breakdown's and Starscream's. Knockout's I don't even see and Vehicon's just looks downright dumb. It's a blaster with legs, for God's sake. >:oP

Not sure how you thought MP-13 to be soundwave, because that totally looks like another Lambor mold. :-?

I'm with you. It looks like a shot taken from a different angle to me. Nothing about it says Soundwave to me. I am intrigued by the new direction Masterpiece is going.

Why is Knockout the only one with a United paintjob? Now that he's in the same picture as others, he clearly has the superior paintjob... Is Takara just being cheap, or trying to troll collectors? The whole line should have had that candy paintjob from the start!

As for Mp-13... It looks like Soundwave, but looking at the outline and general shape of the arms and legs, it looks like another MP-12 Repaint. I'll like to think Sunstreaker, but Sunstreaker's head has the antenna-things. Possibly Red Alert? Hopefully this thing's under $70US... I'm not paying more for something smaller than a regular Alternator...

wow, these actually look pretty sweet. Knockouts coloration looks a little better, Starscreams ok. The sticker treatment i think works with this vehicon, seeing as how he doesnt have many paint apps anyway. His gun looks sick, but i cant tell what its animal mode is. But i only count one set of added-on ports on the vehicon, which is a plus cuz theyre not obtrusive as far as i can tell
Can't wait to see better Breakdown pics :D

According to the page it's a Inoshishi, or a wild boar. Even I have trouble seeing that.

I'm not crazy on prime but that vehicon figure is by far my favorite looking mould so far and that gun looks awsome i don't care what its supposed to turn into i'm not a fan of these animal weapons
it sort of looks like FOC Shockwaves alt i might have to pick this version up.

Breakdown! Please get a Hasbro release! :PRAY:

Takara's Knock Out is even less show-accurate than Hasbro's already not-show-accurate version. >:oP

Starscream: FINALLY! We finally see Takara's Voyager version. What took them so long to show this?

Vehicon looks practically the same as the Hasbro version.

And MP Lambor's scale looks like he'll be similar to Voyager class-sized.

MP13 looks a little like Shockwave to me, though it looks like he has two fists. If it is Soundwave, where is his shoulder, umm.... gun/canon thingy? I'm liking the size of MP12, I'm glad they are finally bringing some order to the Masterpiece line.
