Amazon.co.jp's end of the month update features a handful of Transformers Prime pre-orders with updated imagery. First up is AM-15 Darkness Megatron, a reuse of RID Voyager Megatron, decked out with new swag in the form of two new Microns, Gora II (the cannon) and Hades (the bat). Secondly we have AM-16 Jet Vehicon, who is a new mold. Accompanying this army builder is the Micron Igu. We also have closer looks at EZ-15 Vehicon with Drill and EZ-16 Ultra Magnus. The individually packed microns, AMW01-03, and AMW07-09 are also listed.

Jet Vehicon has got it goin'on, baby.

Given the complete lack of tightness on PRID Megatron- PAAAAAAASS!

Yeah, but I'll wait for a Hasbro release. (I know we haven't seen it on the schedule, yet; but I think there's no way we're not getting this one.)

(And what is that thing, anyway? A lizard?)

Perhaps. But it is Megatron; and this deco looks superb, even without the decals. So, this is one of the few Arms Micron figures I'm getting.

I still think that they cheated with this one.

Not exactly the most subtle of jets, are they? Image


Still, as it's such an accurate representation, and it made my knees wobble a bit when I saw the picture, it's a buy.

Yeah, it's one of those rare occasions where I REALLY want one.

Jet Vehicon has a certain over the top coolness rarely seen on Transformers. I must haz it, hopefully Hasbro realeses it.
Megatron's bat Minicon looks as big as a basic :)
Anyway, I agree with the tightness issue with Megs, I have the Hasbro version and it feels cheap, to light and balljoint hips on a voyager is blasphemy!

Wait for the Hasbro jet Vehicon that may never happen or buy this and cannibalize the arms micron into something screen accurate? :-?

Does anyone else think Megatrons bat-thing looks allot like the bat-thing organisms that live inside Unicron shown in One Shall Rise? Maybe it’s just a happy coincidence.

Regardless, it looks neat.

+1 for noticing that.

I am loving jet vehicon. But I HATE minicons. And I hate takara for trying to shoehorn mini-cons into this line.

I really hope hasbro brings this into their line

Can not WAIT for Jet Vehicon to come in.

Darkness Megatron looks badass. I like that they made his feet and hands black, it really improves the look. I'd buy him if he wasn't so expensive. I already have the Hasbro version anyway.

JET VEHICON WILL BE MINE! I have him on Preorder but I'm really hoping Hasbro announces theirs before then so I don't have to pay so much and deal with the ugly stickers.

Megatron Darkness, not the other way around (Darkness Megatron). Had to be said. ;)

And it looks like Hades has no Energon Crystal, however the three shapes they come in (Trapezoid, Hexagon and Circle), are featured on his back. What does it mean?

Is it just me of does Jet Vehicon looks pink? Is it suppose to be this way? this doesn't look right to me. Does anyone else notice this?

AM-14 Vehicon shipped today from Robotkingdom =D

What in the f*@!k is that nonsense!? That particular configuration looks like ass.

Though I do like that bat Micron on Megs' back or on it's own. I like both his Microns. The fact that they both have "beast" modes is pleasing to me.

Vehicon is a buy if it ever gets seen in Canada. Doubt it.

I preordered Jet Vehicon and ordered an AM Vehicon along with it.

I like the Dark Megs, but I already have the Hasbro version, and it's not worth the cost of the import to me.

Is the Jet Vehicon Micron the same as the (car) Vehicon one?

I'll try to get US vehicons. I did preorder the Darkness Megs because of the Microns mostly. I'm gonna gift the bat to Terrorcon Cliffjumper.

No, but they do transform into the same weapon. The Car Vehicon one is a boar with the barrel as his nose, called Noji, and the Jet Vehicon one is an Iguana with the barrel as his tail, called Igu.

Definitely want Jet Vehicon. Megs is an easy pass. Already have the Hasbro version, OK its not great but IMO a new paint deco and a couple of Microns doesn't really justify the mark up.

Megatron looks great but the thing that will make him really pop would be a cape. If they had included a cape I would of bought it so fast I'd set fire to my keyboard.

Jet Vehicon or is he still known as Bicron?. He looks great and I will definately get him.

OK, thing is, I really want the microns, but also I would customize the Megs. Not dig'n the shiny stuff. I always said he needed to be grittier, not shinier.

I was hoping he'd have had a fedora myself, or maybe...maybe, bermuda shorts. Regardless, yes, some accessorising would have sold it to me more. Still on the fence. Looks much better than the Hasbro release, and has the awesome extra little dudes, but...I already have the average release, and it costs a lot.
