You know the drill, around this time every month new Japanese hobby magazine scans start to make the rounds, which are followed by the full versions a few days down the road. This month is no different, but these first look scans bring us our first real images of Takara Tomy's Transformers Prime Arms Micron AM-33 Darkest Megatron and AM-34 Jet Vehicon General! As many have speculated these versions have been repainted to match the last episodes of Transformers Prime Season 2. Megatron features a repainted right arm resembling the transplanted Prime arm he used to wield the forge of Solus Prime. He also comes packed a redco of the Dark Matter Calibur Arms Microns. Jet Vehicon General features a silver deco seen in the final episode of Season 2. Check out the image below.

DMC v.2 looks pretty great, it's nice that it's one consistent color. No interest in Darkest Megatron personally, but it's nice that they made it! As for JVG? OHHH man, that looks amazing. I can't wait for some clearer pictures, I mayyy have to break down and finally get a Takara mold for myself. :lol:

And I thought I had my AM list all set out in stone.

Oh well. Thank you for giving us Prime-Arm Megatron and Starscream's Armada, Takara. :KREMZEEK:

It's hard to tell from the quality, but it looks like the Jet General had a leg retool, maybe actually locking in place?

It looks a little too "off white" for me. I was hoping it'd be more silver.

I preordered one. Unless some better shots turn up in the next sample, I think I'll stay at one.

I suspect that's the lighting in the picture. I'd bet that it'll be pure Takara white plastic.

What's the deal with the white "Jet Vehicon General"? Non-canon repaint, or future BH cannon fodder?

Did you watch the season two finale? They were in the entire second half of it.

So how many voyager Megatron's does this make vs. voyager Optimus from both Takara and Hasbro? :VEHI:

AM-33 is apparently named "Final Battle Megatron" and the redecoed Dark Matter Calibur is the "Dark Unicron Saber". :roll:

No need for the Megsy, and I think I'll be content with 1 of the jet generals.

I have vehicons all over the place as it is, one officer to keep the rabble in line should do it :)

I did watch the season 2 finale, but strangely I don't recall any white Vehicons. Then again I just watched it once, and it's been at least four months since then.

They're actually silver. I suspect the scan just makes it look washed out. It looks nice but I'm fine with the black Vehicons I have.

Megatron w/ a Prime arm? Where? All I see is Megatron with his right arm painted purple and gold stickers slapped onto it.

I quite like that Vehicon, Megatron, already have one and I'm content with him

Depends if you count the AM Editions as a separate version, due to the remolding.

PRID only so far;

Hasbro Voyager Megs (and AM vesrion)
Hasbro DE Megs
AM Darkness Megs
AM Darkest Megs

So 4, possibly 5 depending on your personal preference.

Op weighs in with;

Hasbro Voyager Op (and AM Version)
Hasbro DE Op
TRU AM Battle Shield OP
Asia Op with Unicron two pack

So again, 4 or 5 depending on how you count, personally I only consider the AM's as a separate version when the deco hasn't been touched by Hasbro; i.e AM Terrorcon Bumblebee.

The above list doesn't include FE Molds or anything from Beast Hunters, just PRID, hope that helps :D

Now, will these two new pieces bring with them a new Arms Micron Promotion :-?

that's gotta be the most show accurate Megatron to date, only wish they included an interchangeable normal arm for him so we don't have to display him with the Prime one
