Courtesy of the Toy-World website, we have access to the scans of the December issue of Figure King magazine. Featuring in this issue are the recently revealed Minicon team/Centuritron figures and Generations 'Armada' Starscream - who's sporting a slightly different deco from his Hasbro counterpart. The other bigger piece of news is a look at the Kabaya Gum DX Wave 2 set of Overlord and Road Caesar, including their Brain and Powermaster buddies. Also included are solicits for Transformers: Cloud, Go Prime and Masterpiece Bluestreak. Check out the mirrored images below.

Go Prime, not Leo Prime. Though he is based on AM Leo Prime who was a repaint of Prime Thundertron. And it seems Armada Starscream and the Mini-Con Assault Team keep their names for Japan. :)

ALL THAT ORANGE!!! MY EYES!!! Also, he's mistransformed a bit.

Can't say I like the white on Starscream.

Centuritron... actually looks good in that image. I was going to get him anyway, but he looks much better with the hip kibble folded up out of sight. If only the original Masterpiece Seeker mold could pull that off and still balance very well. :-(

Takara's Armada Starscream is well-done enough for me to warrant a preorder/order for him when I get the chance. Though he won't be busted out of his packaging, as I plan to make that version the display piece. :x

I've been a little unsure about Takara's Sandstorm because of all the orange. The orange by itself wasn't a problem, but the yellow was looking like it had an orange tinge to it as well. These new photos make me feel a little better about him. Hopefully some in-hand images will soon follow.

That Bludgeon remould looks good in the original Megatron colours in tank mode at least. I doubt I'll ever be able to get behind it in robot mode though.

Not sure I'm digging the white on Armada Starscream either. Kinda undermine's the whole Armada homage...... which I suppose may actually be a positive.

That's not Bluestreak and Armada Starscream has a lot of differences between the Hasbro and TakaraTomy releases.

Armada Starscream appears to have a less orange tinted red, a black chin strap, a lighter gray / off-white instead of gray (like the original Micron fig), painted shoulder detailing (white & black), orange swords instead of amber, richer yellow detailing, different wing striping, red striping on the forearms, a black window instead of amber, different horizontal stabilizer detailing, white instead of red shoulder cannons, added detailing to the legs, and red feet.
