I'm happy with the two versions of this mold that I already have. I don't need a 3rd.

So, Takara and Hasbro have released a blue lion, and a red lion. Now they are releasing a black lion. Where are green and yellow lions? I'm already humming the theme from Voltron... :HEADHURTS: 8-} :HEADHURTS:

So basically just a black redeco of Thundertron w/ an L.P. Arms Micron.

Speaking my language :x It's he's the classic black with teal, instabuy. Don't wanna miss out like I did with Nemesis Prime.

And it seems it's a mainstream release, given his ID nr.: G25. The latest are G21 Judora and G22 Hunter Arcee. Would G23 and G24 be Hunters Knock Out and Dreadwing?

I will buy this because I'm a black prime collector. Any shot of a new head sculpt? This Leo Prime just doesn't look very prime to me...

I doubt the redeco would have a new head when the original did not.

That's a placeholder pic of the original figure with a "Black Version" stamped on it.

I need to see the actual color scheme first, but I'm likely to buy this.

G23 is Dragotron Saishū Keitai

aka "Dragotron Final Form" (最終形体 saishuu keitai?) Thanks ol' bean. :)
That only leaves G24. Come on, we're dying of curiosity here. "Dying"? Right, I'm calling Hunter Knock Out on that one.

Can't see it on the facebook page... Maybe TakaraTomy had them pull it because it wasn't supposed to be announced yet?

Thanks to a tweet by trafes20120505 we have our first look at the previously reported black repaint of AM-28 Leo Prime. The figure will be released under the Transformers Go! banner as G25, and will come with what appear to be red versions of G01 Kenzan's swords. Check out the images below.

And again, new name: Go/Gou Prime. So he's not the Leo Prime/Lio Convoy we know and love. And yes, he's an Autobot.

Wonder if the correct English spelling is supposed to be "Go Prime" or "GoPrime". :-?

His claws look like they are suffering from gold plastic syndrome. If they do, I don't want to get this figure. They're probably painted in a gold color, still doesn't look right on him.

I like the swords. That's about it.

I like this a lot more than their AM Leo Prime, and he actually has a decent weapon this time and not a stupid micron. However, I've already got Thundertron and IMO that moulds not that greatest, besides to import to the UK is going to expensive.

No micron? No dice. Pass.

This mould? In black? Dual wielding katanas?

:DANCE:

But I can't say I'm blown away by the execution.

It looks good for it attempts to do. It's just that the mold is still that of a pirate, and I just reconciled that in my backstories with my Leo Prime (thanks to Sharkticon Megatron). A second look-a-like will be harder to integrate, now that it's a different character (unless Hydra pulls another bunny out of his hat).

Nope, that's not the plastic that suffers from GPS. It's that new soft/flexible goldish plastic that's as solid as anything (no crumbling).

I think I will get this. That deco looks pretty good.

Sadly, Hydra's not the one writing the Go! bios this time (nor does he know who is).

Are you serious? You'd rather have a piece of crap micron over actual weapons?

It's a nice color scheme. Kinda looks like a Nemesis Leo Prime. If this were a US release I could get for $22, I'd get it.

I'll take a transforming micron over a plain molded gun or sword any day. Especially if it's a micron I get to put together myself. More value for the money, in my book.

Looking at Kenzan's swords I've found a potential hiccup: no storage in Beast Mode. The swords have no 5 mm pegs outside of the handles, at least L.P. and Thundertron's longsword had them. Another strike for an otherwise good redeco.

According to the January issue of Dengeki Hobby, it looks like Go Prime will be a toy-only character who won't appear in the cartoon.

Takara Tomy has updated with new official images of the upcoming Transformers Go! G25 Go Prime. He's a repaint of Arms Micron AM-28 Leo Prime, though his Arms Micron weapon has been replaced by redecos of Transformers Go! Kenzan's swords. Check out the official images below.

For a toy-only character, Go Prime looks kinda cool.

The black lion gig is already taken by Gekisoumaru Kurojishi version. :-B

It's just a one-on-one color switch, so getting him has no real priority. Unless I somehow acquired his Arms Micron Go, that shark-gun.
