Takara Transformers Prime Arms Micron AM-15 & AM-16 Revealed Voyager Megatron and Jet Vehicon

Weapon: Gattling Gun
Here's an interesting little piece of news that almost slipped through the cracks from the Robotkingdom Newsletter that was posted earlier this morning. Takara's Transformers Prime Arms Micron AM-15 and AM-16 identities were revealed!

AM-15 Voyager Megatron
AM-16 Deluxe Vehicon Jet Type
AM-17 Voyager Swerve

No images have been posted, but it seems obvious AM-15 Megatron will be a reuse of the "Robots in Disguise" Voyager mold with the inclusion of a new Arms Micron. AM-16 Vehicon Jet Type on the other hand is a mold we have yet to see. Both are scheduled to release in July.

We also have verification that AM-07 Voyager Swerve will be Breakdown repaint as many have already speculated.

I didn't miss it. I have placed an order for 3 of the jet vehicons.
So happy I had the cash to jump on this pre-order immediately. Now I don't have to worry about paying mark-up prices with BBTS or TFSource.

Gonna need at least five of each type of Vehicon (five cars, five jets). That should be enough. :-B

"Beacon" = "Biikon" = "Vehicon" (the car one). Robotkingdom mistransliterated the name.

Ahhh, that makes much more sense now. Mistranliterated. Not a real word, but certainly a mouth full.

Theres no confirmation, but its pretty likely. its different enough to require a new mold, so its not like itll be a repaint or retool

Based on the silhouette in the image, the Vehicon Jet appears to be... a Bumblebee repaint!

;)

(If they don't have an image, they shouldn't put up any image at all. It looks like the store doesn't know what it's doing when they put up an image of a different product as a placeholder.)

He really doesn't have one. Everyone knows what a placeholder is. He's doing this "just because".

I'd be more upset with Robotkingdom's inability to get their orders right. Who cares about a placeholder? When you don't get your stuff, that's the big thing. An image is the least of everyone's worries.

Sorry, Arms Micron universally have worse paint apps than the Hasbro versions, they get stickers instead.

I prefer BBTS.

Also, at least BBTS just puts the Prime logo if they don't have the actual image instead of confusing people!
