Takara Tomy Transformers Prime Arms Micron AM-27 Ultra Magnus & AM-29 Shockwave Images

Motto: "I ain't got time to bleed!"
Weapon: Gattling Gun
In addition to the images of Takara Tomy's Transformers Prime Arms Micron AM-30 Rumble, AM-31 Frenzy, and AM-28 Leo Prime we now have images of AM-27 Ultra Magnus and AM-29 Shockwave courtesy of site sponsor Robotkingdom. It appears that Shockwave will indeed be a reuse of the Generations FOC Deluxe Shockwave with a new Arms Micron to replace his blaster attachment. Many had speculated FOC Shockwave was just being used a placeholder until the figure's full reveal, but apparently that is not the case. Ultra Magnus uses his Transformers Prime RID mold of course, with a new Arms Micron that transforms into a hammer. Images mirrored below.

I wouldn't count on it. The lighting in these kinds of images are usually over-saturated, giving the colors a bright neon tint from how they really look.

The color looks more G1-accurate in the picture, but you know you can't always trust the color in these images.

I love SW's micron. It reminds me of the microns for Vehicon and Jet Vehicon.

Looks like shockwave has more color on him but I think it sucks they are using the same mold as FOC because when they showed him in the show he was a lot bulkier

You could be right. But Im gonna go off the fact that this image is missing the redish tint that you would get if you blasted the Hasbro version with excess light. This one seems to have a bluish tint instead. And if they go for the chrome like the other Takara FOC figures have, the mix of silver and purple paint would only lighten the purple. If not ill be sure to cancel my pre-order.

On the mini-con - I dont hate the little guys, but Im planning on using this as a classics Shockwave with the wings flipped down. Not as FOC/TF Prime or whatever Has/Tak intended this mold to be used for. No mini-cons needed for a classics shelf.

He comes with a cannon that can be used on either hand.

So without the Micron, Shockwave is weaponless, plus has a rather empty hull in vehicle mode. ;)

Is this confirmed by Takara in writing or just speculation based on a picture that doesnt show the cannon ? I own the Hasbro version. I only transformed it once, but in my opinion the cannon is an essential part of the alt mode, even if it is removable. It doesnt sound like a piece that can be just excluded, especially at a higher price. If you are right, at least I got the Hasbro cannon to make him look G1.

If you look at the Takara figure pic, you can see that the micron tranforms into his arm cannon and attaches to both his robot mode arm and his vehicle mode in the same ways as the Hasbro arm cannon accessory. The Micron is his cannon for both modes, and without it, he's "disarmed", so to speak. ;)

And it makes sense since most of the main line Takara Prime figures have completely excluded all the accessory weapons of the Hasbro figures, replacing them all with Arms Microns. Since this Shockwave toy is being released in their Prime toyline, Takara's treating it like a Prime toy.

Myth busted !!!

In the alt mode pic, notice 2 of the 3 points from the original cannon clearly sticking out behind the Japanese banner at it's bottom. Unless this picture is a lie, the Takara version includes the cannon and the Micron is added as an extra bouus. Makes sense since everytime you infuse the mold with melted plastic, youre gonna get a cannon anyways. As I stated before, the cannon is essential part of the alt-mode. Taking it away would be like selling classics Mirage without his gun which is needed as part of the alt mode.

So what was the reason to make this figure part of the Prime line anyways ? If they made a late decision to release FOC, why not just change the packaging that we have never seen anyways to the proper line ? Would anybody even care if it went from being AM-29 (the last number) to TG-15 ???

Look again. I'm spotting the crystal on top of the cannon in alt mode, plus the purple striping, meaning it's the Micron replacing the cannon. TakaraTomy nor Hasbro even isn't shy of not using parts of a mold, look at the PCC Microns (which are gang-molded with their larger partners), Henkei Lambor and Alert which actually excluded the supercharger for a more accurate alt mode, or Shockwave's upcoming retool, Air Raid, which has a sword instead of the cannon.

And FYI, the three points sticking out at the front? Integrated into the heels, so Air Raid has them as well.

Yeah, the two of the three points you see are part of Shockwave's feet, not the cannon.

Takara dumped the cannon and replaced it with the cannon Micron.

I dont think you guys are looking at what Im looking at. Im not looking at any grey or black parts. Im looking at the part in alt mode that is purple that is quite clearly the cannon which Hasbro had molded in grey. You know, the thing thats shaped like the letter "Y" which is the front of the cannon. Look clearly it's right there in purple, so its not part of the Micron. The Micron has the same thing (minus one of the three portions) but in black. Like I said before...Myth Busted.
