More Microns, argh! Anyway, here are the names:

Green Jigu: Gou (from Go/Gou Prime, possibly)
Blue Ozu: Geki (from Gekisoumaru)
Red Giza: Ex (from Optimus Ex Prime, possibly)
Purple Dago: Sen (from Sensuimaru)
Orange Magi: Shou (from Hishoumaru)

Don't ask about the name of the combined weapon, I gave up on kanji with the Sanjouhaouken. >:oP

Oh look, a rainbow cannon. No thanks, I'll take Prime's dual meat cleavers.

Fingers crossed I'll be in a position to participate more then, this house move and renovation has become more labour intensive than previously thought. I haven't bought a TF since August; let alone posted here....

Still the thought of some new campaign Microns fills me with both joy and fear for my wallet in equal measure!

I want that new predaking. Is that a new head ? If so I hope it is as nice as the other 4 Japan Predacon Redeco new heads. The American versions heads are way too cartoony.

The original Predaking was released without mold changes in Japan, so no mold changes for the Ultimate one either. >:oP

Right, I *think* I have the name of the weapon down... It's another doozy:

Go-Jou-Fuu-Gi-A-Hou

Which kinda means something like "Five-jointed Sub-Cannon of Honorary Winds". Anybody who actually knows Japanese, feel free to correct me. :oops:

The helmet looks the same... The face doesn't... Hm. :-?

Whew! That's a relief. I'd vowed to only buy the solid color variants... no clear micron. Dodged a bullet today. Ha. :lol:

Based on previous pics of the actual toy itself, Guren Dragotron's head is the same as Ultimate Predaking. These are just some really poor quality scans.

I've been passing on the leader-class Predaking here simply because I wan this one. Boo Yeah it's an awesome colourscheme.

TakaraTomy's website has been updated with new info on these Gojou Arms Microns - http://tf.takaratomy.co.jp/toy/event/2013/10/gojou.html

Also, notice that the combined weapon is in a different configuration from the one we saw in the magazine scans. :-?

It has two combined modes it seems: long range and melee. We've seen the long range as the "GoJouFuugiAhou" (is that even correct?) and the melee weapon is called "GojouGoudenjin". And the meaning is a little simpler this time: "Pentuple Blade of Roaring Lightning". I actually know the kanji this time. :-B

O, silly me, for you Japan folks, the venues:

Geki: Joshin Kid's Land, Bic Camera
Sen: AEON
Shou: Ideon, Yamada, Yodobashi Camera
Go: all Japanese toy stores
Ex: Toys 'R Us

I'm with Mkall, haven't picked up the leader class yet but this one might be worth the wait.

Ugh, why does Guren Dragotron look so orange when he's supposed to be red? It's even in his name ("Guren" = "red", "crimson", etc.). :roll:

As noted before, the combined form of the Arms Micron weapon seen here is a different one from the magazine scans.

As much as I love the new deco, not having a new head is a deal breaker for me. I already have the Target version with the ugly cartoon head. I would be a buyer at $65-80, but I dont see that happening with Takara. Unless it goes on clearance of course. Maybe if they did the mold in a blue Cryo deco I would pay the $100+ that they will probally ask...

He looks red to me. Either it's you, or it's the lighting in the photos.

I'm thinking it's the latter since he looks a lot more red in these pics - http://transformerskorea.com/shop/shopdetail.html?branduid=664388&special=3

I've been undecided on this figure for a month now. Put it in your Predacon collection and it's going to stand out, but that's simply because it's big and brash. I personally find Hasbro's version more dynamic. At $100, I'd need to be totally convinced and if I'm honest, I'm not.

Pre-order cancelled. :-(

I have the Predacons Rising version, dont spend the money, the knee articulation kills the figure in my opinion. The voyager class of this character is superior in every way. Save your money.

I might be one of the few, but I like this mold a lot. I own the Hasbro version and this one looks even better. The translucent wings are just too damn cool. It's almost tempting enough to buy it a second timne.

I'm gonna wait until the Hasbro one goes on sale, which undoubtedly will happen here. Then, you're mine, Guren Dragotron :twisted:

Translucent wings? :???:

I guess they kinda have some translucent qualities to them, but... I dunno. :|
