Takara Tomy has tweeted an image of the LP Arms Micron figure that comes packed with their upcoming Transformers Prime Thundertron redeco, AM-28 Leo Prime. The figure is posed next to Beast Wars II Moon, which he bears a striking resemblance. Check out the image mirrored below.

Tsuki wa, that's not any BWII Moon, it's the white mail-away version. :grin:

Leo Prime can't be released fast enough!

If it weren't for the head, the reference would be lost. :P

Moon transforms into an anime rabbit. L.P. transforms into a sword. ;)

Thanks. It was the sword I was unsure about. I have the original yellow moon, and it transforms from robot to anime rabbit... in the same way Optimus Minor changes to an ape. (Meaning, in that way where you kinda have to squint... and cock your head to the side... while doling out an inordinate amount of imagination and slack.)

At least Optimus Minor has the excuse of being a Transmetal 2. xD

Yeah, I have to say... the comic appearance of Optimus Minor really brought him back from the dead for me. The IDW Beast Wars comics were really fun.

Wow, I just got waaaay off topic. Oops. Uh, yeah. Gonna get these new Microns. Will pose this little yellow guy with Moon.

L.P. is the main reason I want Leo Prime, he pretty much solidifies the link between him and BWII Lioconvoy. Which makes me wonder, how popular is Lioconvoy over in Japan anyway? More popular than Optimus Primal?

by the by, he's very similar to Arc, Arcee's Micron. Would that make him a her?

Yeah, it's a funny thought retconning characters into girls. (I actually really like the notion of having a girl Stunticon, ala the Botcon set.)

Very cool link between the BWII and current LioConvoy, especially adding Moon into the mix. I'll probably make an exception and get that one Japanese figure, since I have the original.
