Pictorial Review: Takara Tomy Transformers Prime Arms Micron AM-30 Rumble

Weapon: Gattling Gun
Site sponsor Kapow! Toys has provided us with a pictorial review of Takara Tomy's Transformers Prime Arms Micron AM-30 Rumble. Enjoy the review below.

Arms Micron AM30 Rumble

Not just a repaint but a slight remold in the fact he has a new head which in fairness knocks spots off the Hasbro Ultron style head which never really hit the spot for me. There isn't anything else different apart from the sticker sheet, Micron and the omission of the pile drivers which is slightly annoying but not the end of the world. He is a nice toy but does have the problems of shoulder clearance where the massive roof sections clip the guns / side door panels which sit over the shoulder but it does not ruin him, he has a lot of poseability and a nice neat transformation. Micron wise it looks a lot like a grappling gun in weapon mode and an evil kitchen appliance in robot mode, neither of which is a bad thing but is it a good thing ? I don't know because I have run out of words so check out the pics and decide for yourself.

Overall Rumble scores 7.5 / 10

I like it. Although, if I ever get my hands on this fellow, I won't be applying the "Team SoundWave" sticker.

Good job, Takara. ;)^

Team Soundwave???

:lol:
Are they going to start cheerleading in the middle of a battle?
It would make more sense to see a "team whatever" decal on a stunticon.

That minicon is SICK though... Finally a "robot" mode that has a use as a sentry gun... Definitely going to have to pick a few of those up.

Looks so good. The black and gold on the chest really make all the difference. Can't wait to get mine!

Oh crap! How did I look at that entire AM-31 gallery and not notice the shiny wheels? :BLACKEYE: The only problem I have with these two from Takara is that the colours are a little too bright for Decepticons in my opinion.
