Thanks to site sponsor Robotkingdom we have our first in-package images of Takara Tomy's Transformers Prime Arms Micron Optimus Prime and Gaia Uicron box set. These Asia exclusive figures feature some tweaked decos including metallic paint on Optimus Prime's previously translucent forearms. It also appears that these Arms Microns come pre-assembled. Check out the images mirrored below:

I like :) Unicron is on my list and depending on the total price I may look at this instead.

Anyone else notice that the Microns come pre-assembled? Shows it can be done, blind packs please Hasbro...

Big pass on this. That Unicron is just pure shit. There is no redeming mode that would make me want to pick it up. Volcano, Face, Spaceship, Rock, Armada Unicron's head, combined mode all a big steaming pile of it. :MAXIMAL:

Great... It's either that set, Battle Shield Optimus with the Hasbro sword, or a regular release with an extra O.P. Decisions, decisions... >:oP

Only people on their fifth beer would want to sleep with this.

Sad, since they probably spent money on all that chrome.

If you're going to force me to relive events that never took place and make no sense... don't make it look like ass doing so.

I know that I am both a TOMYphile, love exclusives, and do not care about the price (it will always be a hit or miss with that)... But I have to pass on this item. Namely my budget has me thinking that I need to be cautious when it comes to my 2013 spending... Especially since it includes my 2012 goals. ..... But I guess I can consider making the "Arms Micron" version of Stunticon Wildrider a part of my permanent collection. :lol:

As for the negativity...

And what about those who do not keep up with the way TOMY has been handling their side of these franchises, while maintaining the need to be an ignorant troll to both TOMY and their target fanbase for this item? All I will say is that TOMY did not consider you as part of their target audience, but know that the rest is significant enough to ignore your trolling.

So yeah... Take your own advice. The rest will be better off buying it with reasons that are their own. And we all get it - You do not like it and will not buy it. But they are not you, and are also sober enough to see the value of owning this set. But if you disagree, then don't tell anybody why you bought your pieces... Or even how you collect them. Because you might not like receiving the same attitude you have just given. >:oP

Dude. Who cares if the combination happened in the show or not? They're trying to sell a toy by showing off something that can be done. Nobody's forcing you to combine Unicron with Optimus Prime and ride off to have a spot of tea with Megatron. :roll:

And now those who complain about the armor combination making no sense from a fictional standpoint can stop complaining for that particular reason:

Optimus Prime:
The noble leader Optimus Prime began his days as Orion Pax, a mere data clerk in the Iacon Hall of Records. It was his meeting with the gladiator Megatron that would greatly change his destiny, the first step on the path to being bestowed with the Matrix and recognized as a great leader. Adopting the motto “Freedom is the right of all sentient beings,” Optimus Prime’s battle with Megatron now continues on Earth. He fights to protect the people of Earth while uncovering the mysteries of the planet.

Gaia Unicon:
Legend has it that in days long past, the Chaos God Unicron was sealed away by the first 13 Transformers. As he threatens to awaken, the Earth lies on the verge of chaos and destruction. Iacon records claim that on a world in a distant dimension, civilization was driven to extinction when it attempted to harness Unicron’s energy. Now Earth risks the same dire fate. The mighty avatar Gaia Unicron, born from Dark Energon, is the first harbinger of the chaos bringer’s revival.

Gaia Armor:
Optimus Prime and his Autobots faced impossible odds, yet succeeded in defeating Gaia Unicron, the earthly avatar of the chaos lord Unicron. From its remains, the macrocosmic guardian Leo Prime used his ancient sword to forge the Gaia Armor. Although the purifying power of an Energon Matrix severed the Gaia Armor from Unicron’s control, it still resonates with the forbidden might of Dark Energon, granting its wearer unspeakable power.
Should Optimus Prime choose to don the armor, he must heed Leo Prime’s warning and treat it with great caution: constant vigilance is required to control the armor without being corrupted by its power. Were the Gaia Armor to fall into the hands of the Decepticon tyrant Megatron, the consequences would surely mean destruction for the already outnumbered Autobots. Whether to be used for good or evil, the Gaia Armor brings a new dimension to the battles of Team Prime.

Granted, this still isn't the cartoon continuity (English or Japanese), but it IS the Japanese Prime toy bio conitnuity, so nyah. :P

The cynic in me says we'll see a mirror set with Megatron and Unicron in a black, Energon inspired deco....
