Weapon: Gattling Gun
The Takara Tomy Transformers website has been updated with new entries in the Arms Micron and United sections. Nothing too major, though we do get two previously unseen powered up images of AM-21 Arms Master Optimus Prime. The new entries include:

Arms Micron:
  • AM-19 Gaia Unicron
  • AM-20 Ironhide
  • AM-21 Arms Master Optimus Prime
  • AMW-10
  • AMW-11
  • AMW-12

United:
  • EX-01 Combat Master Prime Mode
  • EX-02 Jet Master Prime Mode
  • EX-P1 Roller Master & Spanner VS Chopper Master & Firebug

"Did you know?"

1992 was the year when Fight! Super Robot Lifeform Transformers ended with Operation Combination. And 2012 was the year when Transformers: UNITED ended with UNITED EX. Both are based on redeco figures, and the primary sets involve combination teams.

[Also, I am wondering if Takara Tomy had any intentions to make this a micro-continuity. Mostly because some obscure/unused facts can tie Optimus Prime to Optimus Primal and Megatron to Beast Megatron. But the rest... No clue. :???:]

Meh! Like El Duque said, nothing too major. I hate those shots of the Arms Microns figures sporting multiples of a specific Micron. It's just a tease that I will more than likely not be able to recreate the awesome.

Not at all. I think the paint apps are really good. Not enough to get me to shell out the big bucks they are going for, especially considering I have all of the Hasbro PCC figures already, but if I ever found them cheap I'd probably grab them.

Chopper master is too sweet. I love that green on him. The price keeps me off, though. Let's hope they'll sell so badly the price drops like an anvil.

Are the Minicons translucent?

Not sure. But I bet that their political agendas on Cybertron are.

Bazinga!

Doesn't look like it. That means no light piping either.
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!

Judging from what we've seen so far, I think you're right. However, Chainclaw (or whatever Takara is going to call him) sorta looks translucent.
