It's price point and size seems to be of the Ultra scale, but Hasbro's just too lazy to work it in. :lol:

Well, I'm tired of complaining about Hasbro. I already ordered Arms Micron Vehicon and Jet Vehicon, and I'm starting to realize I'm going to have to start importing more often as Hasbro seems to have no interest in bringing us the toys we want.

I do wonder what leads to these decisions. Why ignore show characters that have fully developed toys? All the designwork is done...

Yet another troop building opportunity Hasbro would rather we didn't have. Hell, the one they did release is impossible to find. As far as I'm concerned the most official thing about Hasbro is that they suck. For every step forward they take four steps back. They had better blow us away with the 30th anniversary.

I hate to be rude, but they've been telling us its a Japanese only release since it was first solicited! Personally I chose not to be Hasbr-optimistic and believed them.

It does look bigger than a Voyager, but online retailers have him priced the same as Darkness Megatron and other AM Voyagers. I'm stoked for that figure.

Normal AM Voyagers (SS, Breakdown, Bulkhead, etc.) are cheaper than both Darkness Megatron and Unicorn.

Actually, only a few voyagers in TT's line have had that higher price point. Darkness Megatron, War Breakdown, and Gaia Unicron all have higher prices than other voyagers in the line (including Swerve and Breakdown Silas, who share the same mold with Breakdown). I guess Breakdown's higher cost is to offset initial use of the mold, and Darkness Megatron comes with two freaking huge Arms Microns. Unicron's cost might be because it uses a lot of plastic, hence a larger size.

All of the AM Voyagers were $59.99 up until the Swerve repaint on, and the first wave of deluxe AMs were $37.99 (pricing on subsequent waves dropped to $29.99 @ BBTS).

My point was in this line pricing seems kind of arbitrary, which means Unicron is just a regular Voyager size. Theoretically.

Takara seems more into exclusive redecos and more Micron releases than new molds.

I didn't think Hasbro released the FE Vehicon did they? Or are they only going to release it now that they're re-releasing the FE's and that's what you were referring to?

At SDCC, the FE Vehicon was shown among the seven FEs that are coming to TRU later this year. Notice that I omitted Bumblebee and Cliffjumper since they aren't a part of the 2012 release of the FEs? 2011 only had three Deluxe FEs come to TRU, but 2012 will have all of them minus BB and CJ.

Nice figure....looks almost like Skywarp in bot mode, minus the head, mostly due to the wings and lilac purple. XD

It's a shame if it doesn't get a US release, I'm glad I preordered. I would've got Breakdown too if he wasn't so damn expensive.

At Robotkingdom, Deluxe AMs are $23.90 and most Voyager AMs are $46.90! Breakdown and Darkness Megs, however, are $54.90. Gaia Unicron, interestingly, is $51.90 for preorder.

First, daimchoc has found a video review by YouTube member doubble80. Check out the embeds below.





Second, Sabrblade brings us some potentially unfortunate news by way of fellow fansite [url]the Allspark[/url]. It appears Jet Vehicon may be joining Breakdown and Gaia Unicron as Takara exclusives.

Sabrblade wrote:Remember when we found out that the Transformers: Prime Voyager Breakdown and Voyager Gaia Unicron would be TakaraTomy exclusive figures? Well it looks as though the Deluxe Jet Vehicon figure might be joining their ranks. The Jet Vehicon figure was recently released in Japan, and Allspark.com user Powered Convoy has both acquired one and taken a photo of the figure's copyright information. Much like the Breakdown figure, the Jet Vehicon figure only contains copyright info from Tomy, rather than from both Tomy and Hasbro like the other figures shared between the two.

For comparison, here's Prime Voyager Breakdown's copyright information (also taken by Powered Convoy), which also lacks info from Hasbro.

Lol this. Is nuts this is my review sadly I forgot to flip the wings up and made an update video

Yes. I just checked my Bulkhead and it says
(C)2011 Hasbro
(C) Tomy


Honestly, I was expecting this one to be Japan exclusive, so I preordered. Only one, though, I'll probably get one or two more down the road. Sadly, this means I'll be getting this guy before I see ANY regular Vehicons, as I still have had no luck with that. I need that wave 4 revision assortment to hit fast.

I don't get it either. What's so hard about this?
Phase one: design toys
Phase two: release toys
Phase three: profit

Phase one is the hard part, why stop there? They must be following the Underpants Gnomes business model.

I found a seller on ebay that is selling Jet Vehicon for only 35.99 with free shipping. A quick search will lead you to a decent deal!
