Eh, imma pass on Magnus and Shockwave, though it is pretty cool that Shockwave's micron can integrate into his alt-mode the same way his normal weapon does. Leo Prime actually looks pretty cool, minus his inexplicable blue head :???: his micron is just a slightly remolded and recolored version of Arcee's though

Why wouldn't he have a blue head? He's a Lio Convoy homage.

Ooooooh, i'm not up on Japanese characters as much as i'd like to be, i apologize :-( it's only been around a year since i've got back in the fandom and i have yet to familiarize myself with the far corners of Transformers fiction. Again, my apologies!

What's with all the hate for voyager magnus? He's a good figure. Not to mention that he has waist articulation and ratcheting knees and elbows. I know it's just my opinion, but Magnus is pretty cool.

They want the brand to have the same names in each market so as to create a greater sense of unity and consistency throughout the whole brand. They're even referring to classic G1 characters by their American names, like that new G1 manga that's out now calls Optimus Prime "Oputimasu Puraimu" instead of "Konboi". It's Hasbro's brand, might as well have Takara stop doing things different for the sake of difference.

And yet this disqualifies the dub of the actual series from following suit how? I know this is the wrong place for this and completely off topic, but the fact is japan treats their dubs of our shows like comedies, which is hardly unifying as far as I'm concerned.

Name-wise. The dub tones differ to suit the mentality of the Japanese demographic, who generally view giant self-operated mecha robots without pilots as being kiddie. Imagine their surprise when they saw the movies. :P

Im very impressed with the G1 cartoon accurate colors on Shockwave, but the micron blows monkey balls. If they dont throw in the original cannon for good measure, Ill have to use the generations version's cannon. Now if only we could get Takara to make a FOC Vortex in G1 cartoon accurate colors instead of that piss and PMS color crap from the game.

It's practically the same shade of purple as the Hasbro version. Don't forget that these are photoshops, so there's gonna be some tinting to the image.

Plus, I wouldn't quite call this closer to the G1 cartoon Shockwave than the Hasbro version

It would be a waste for them to include the cannon since the already made a Micron that was specifically designed to replace the cannon.

Let me clarify what I meant:

This version appears to be more of a "blueish purple" that resembles the G1 cartoon. Unlike the Hasbro version (which I own) which is more of a "reddish purple" like the G1 toy. I intend to flip the wings down (or just pop em off) and use this as my classics shockwave. The huge arm cannon (AKA micron) looks ******.

And this is not a TF Prime mold. It is an FOC mold packaged in a Japanese TF Prime box. Whoever made that decision at Takara gets a Nobel Prize. :BANG_HEAD:

True, but the likely reason they went ahead and used it was due to Shockwave's appearance in the cartoon necessitating them to give their market something to stand in for the absence of a proper Prime Shockwave toy.

It's close enough (color, chest, wings, cyclopic head, gun arm, etc.) to use for now in case they don't make a Prime Shockwave toy (it could happen, since they didn't make a new mold toy for Smokescreen, who's been a much bigger character in the show).

Why they aren't giving certain show characters their own molds, however, is baffling.

FOC is also in the same continuity as Prime, so this is the same guy anyway. Different suit, same psycho.

Magnus looks nice and the Overload Micron is a super cool nod to fans. The same for Leo Prime and his Micron. It's freaking Moon! Haha! I won't be getting these but they are probably the best looking AM figures IMO.
