Smokescreen looks awesome, as does his Micron. I never bought Knockout because I hate the paint job it got, but THIS I WANT.

Do we know if Hasbro is releasing Smokescreen in the U.S.? If not, I'm importing the AM version.

Can anyone tell if Silas Breakdown has an eye patch? I can't see one, but the picture is too small. Either way, I've preordered him and am very excited to get him!

Smokescreen on the other hand... This remold simply does not work for him. While his vehicle mold looks pretty good (and so does his head mold), I really can't stand his robot mode. If Hasbro doesn't release a new mold version of him then I guess I just won't have a Smokescreen in my TFP collection.

I was trying to collect every show character (and a few others because TFP Rumble seems awesome) but I gave up on that after seeing how crappy Airachnid is. Oh well, I can still get all of the good show characters!

Nothing of this interests me, except that last picture.
Anyone know what size that matrix on a chain is? I'm suspecting it's a red duplicate of MP-10's matrix.

I'm convinced Smokescreen has a new head, but it doesn't fit without his wings and proper arms.

We're getting a Cyberverse figure, and they teased and hinted at us with a Deluxe Smokescreen. Hoping for a new mold.

Smokescreen I'm considering, if only for the Micron. It's good to see new names:

- Maki, from カマキリ kamakiri, or mantis.
- Giza, from ノコギリザメ Nokogiri-zame, or sawshark
- S.2, who steals B.2's naming gimmick.

And MORE CLEAR MICRONS! =P~

Three thoughts on this:

1) as always the best part about these figures are the microns.
2) smokescreen looks nothing like his animation model and I'm afraid to see how much of that detail is stickers.
3) that sword for nemesis prime, my God, that sword.

Not quite sure if I like the way Breakdown's new Micron looks...

Smokescreen, as usual, is a "meh". >:oP

Apathy has taken over my views for the rest of it.

That does look like a slightly retooled head on Smokescreen. No? The helmet doesn't appear to have the exaggerated side crests, or does the paint job just make them look less pronounced?

Well the Cyberverse figure will be new. I'm disappointed that his micron doesn't look like any weapon he's used thus far.

The "Pure Energon Super Star Saber". It's like the regular Super Star Saber, but consists of:

- Matrix
- Shining R.A.
- Pure Energon O.P. (upcoming release, or Shining O.P.?)
- Pure Energon B.2

Nothing special, O.P. and B.2 simply attach to the sides.

The weapon shown next to it is the Solar Ion Arrow, consisting of:

- Hellflame Gul
- Terrorcon Zori
- Shining Gra B

All have the Ion Energon Crystal, exclusive to AEON stores. Yes, pun intended.

Those are the microns that come with the Japanese Weaponizer Prime. The only one I recognize is a retool of Ratchets Micron with clear plastic.

Aw. That mantis is kinda awesome. I can't justify buying ANOTHER of that mold just for that mantis though. Maybe they'll issue it in green as a capsule micron. Crossing my fingers.

LOGICALLY, with Smokescreen's appearance in the show and Prowl's supposed appearance in the upcoming Jagex game, you would think they would create an entirely new mold just for them. :-x But nope, this is Hasbro and Takara, where logic is tossed out of the window. Repaint from Knockout, WHO LOOKS NOTHING LIKE SMOKESCREEN!! :-x What are the odds. Honestly the cyberverse figures are more accurate than what's in the main line, AND THEY'RE SMALLER!! :BOOM: (Ironhide, Megatron, Dreadwing, Smokescreen as prime examples.) And we're not even getting Breakdown over in other countries, let alone in the states. Heck, we don't even get his repaint of Swerve!! Instead we get Kup, but not Ironhide. (Wow, this turned into a rant). ANYWAY, I 'm just STRUGGLING to fathom how certain figures aren't even the right color/mold. (Black Breakdown does not equal dark blue Breakdown) >:oP

Knock Out looks like crap but Smokcreen looks pretty good, sometimes all you need is a bit of paint and a slight remold to make a figure good. To bad the figure is small as hell, seen knock out in the store the other day and was appalled at how small it is, little over a year ago that would've been classified as a scout class figure. But that keychain & Arcee are awesome, why the hell cant hasbro do that stuff? No when ever they do something its either a figure thats mass produced elsewhere or so easy to get that theres really no point.

Yeah, the odd repaints and characters made me jump ship. Too many repaints, and too far off base from our established, beloved characters. If they stuck with some iconic, recognizable ones, I'd be more apt to keep buying them... and lining the shelves with repaints.

As is, I will keep buying a zillion of these repaints:
Seeker Jets
Prowl/Bluestreak/Smokescreen
Junkions

Besides those, I'm going to think HARD about buying more than a couple of the mold.

Uh, Prowl & Smokescreen are two different models. While bearing some similarities in the shoulder pads and legs, I have doubts Smokescreen and Prowl would look good together as the same mold in this particular universe.

I wonder what TFP Bluestreak/Silverstreak would look like. A hybrid of Prowl and Smokescreen? :lol:

Wow, for once, TT got the repaints all messed up.

Silas Breakdown is supposed to be the same colors as normal Breakdown, but with the battle damage effects and the messed up head.

He's a Black, Red and White redeco.

Nemesis Prime is supposed to be muted tones of normal Prime: Purple and Black (like Shattered Glass O.P.).

He's a Black, Red and White redeco.


While I'm not too bothered by Breakdown (Dr. Wu will hopefully put out a better Silas head), it's a shame about Nemesis. Maybe Has will make an accurate deco (It's an easy repaint), or maybe he'll be an exclusive of some sort.

Actually, Nemesis Prime is more of a dull maroon and black rather than the purple and black that SG OP is.

Hmmm...

While I don't love that Smokescreen is just a Knockout repaint with a new head, it actually doesn't look that bad. And given that the details such as the 38's are probably decals on the Takara version, it would make buying him and turning him into a Prowl stand-in that much simpler..... ;)

Yeah, that was my own notion... buy it and paint some black over the blue. Head looks too Prowl not to do it.

Smokescreen also has a bulkier torso, different wings, a less blockier forearm, and the wheels are located elsewhere on the leg rather than the ankle.

Also, the wings are at a different angle and Prowl has shoulder missiles, but they may be adjustable.

You might actually be able to make a good-looking, show accurate Nemesis Prime if you Frankenstein parts from "AM-25 Nemesis Prime" (for the Legs, Forearm translucent plastic, and Head) and "Toys R Us Exclusive Battle Shield Optimus Prime" (For the remaining parts).

The dull reds and grays of Battle Shield OP will contrast really nicely with the bright reds and grays of the Hasbro Powerizer OP (and the molded on Micron ports will help differentiate the mold better). For added accuracy, remove the Light piping from Battle Shield and paint it/color it with a sharpie yellow,

Another bonus is that since TT uses stickers for detailing and symbols, you don't have to include the faction stickers on Nemesis' shoulders (as I'm pretty sure he didn't have any faction symbols, besides the Autobot logo on his grill).

I might actually do this.

hey, the knockout mold has not 1, but 2 ports on his back right? so what are the odds that you could stick the micron on his back and fold it out to make his ''wings?'' also, why didnt they at least remold his shoulder armor? knockouts firebender shoulders dont really remind me of smokescreen. then again, niether does that vehicle mode...

As said above, both look incredibly similar. FAR more similar than Smokescreen is to Knockout. And hey, at least bot Prowl and Smokes' have DOORWINGS!! (At this point, Bumblebee would have been better...or not. He is already overused mold wise, what with there being the Hot Shot figure and the shadow looking B6.)

They probably figured Knockout's car mode bares more resemblance to Smokescreen's than Bee. And since Smokescreen "wears" his car mode's front on his chest like the majority of the TF's, it would look weird to have his chest resemble Bee's.

At least with Knockout, there are similarities.

That said, I think Smokescreen deserves at least a retool (Bumblebee mold, but retooled car front and trunk), if not his very own mold.

I wasn't to happy when I heard smokescreen was gonna be a knockout re paint but I'm actually pleased with how he looks. I mean I'd rather have a new mold but if this is all we get I'm happy with it. Also really liking salis breakdown he looks nice all black I just hope he has an eye patch.

Actually, Smokescreen's torso is more accurate to Knock Out's toy's official transformation. The legs are very similar to Knock Out period; it's just the arms and wings. If we had gotten new arms and door wings, then I wouldn't be as disappointed with this toy.

And I was pointing out their differences, not their similarities. So, this isn't exactly valid when quoting me:

Smokescreen also has a bulkier torso, different wings, a less blockier forearm, and the wheels are located elsewhere on the leg rather than the ankle.

Also, the wings are at a different angle and Prowl has shoulder missiles, but they may be adjustable.

As said above, both look incredibly similar.

That Smokescreen makes me so sad I'm regretting buying Kock Out too. I knew the figure didn't do that character justice but this makes me realise just how wide of the mark they were. They really do deserve better. Come on 3rd parties. Show us what you're made of.

I'm surprised to see Silas Breakdown is just a black repaint of the standard figure. Or has it got a slightly messed up eye which I just can't see?

Slashercon wrote:LOGICALLY, with Smokescreen's appearance in the show and Prowl's supposed appearance in the upcoming Jagex game, you would think they would create an entirely new mold just for them. :-x But nope, this is Hasbro and Takara, where logic is tossed out of the window.


The whole thing said - Where is the logic behind the thought of mixing Hasbro with something that is solely Takara Tomy's line? :???: The Arms Micron toyline is primarily sold in each and every Toys"R"Us in Japan. Meaning that anything tied to Hasbro, namely the Jagex game and Beast Hunters have nothing to do with this. Because when it comes to logic, TOMY decided to make something that was not expensive and that kids within a certain age group will enjoy. Namely young, Japanese boys. Beyond that, they just get the added benefit of having their line enjoyed by collectors who are willing to buy what they like. >:oP

So for me... Looking at this figure has made me decide that "Arms Micron" Wildrider will be my last for now, when it comes to Prime. Oh... >:oP And I am mildly disappointed that they did not go with a pinkish chrome for "Lucky Draw" Arcee. It looks good, but in the theme of show-accuracy, the white/silver chrome should be a shade of pink. Just sayin'. :-B

Thanks to updated product listings on Amazon Japan we have much better images of Takara Tomy's upcoming Transformers Prime Arms Micron figures AM-24 Silas Breakdown, AM-25 Nemesis Prime, and AM-26 Smokescreen. These images reveal that Silas Breakdown does indeed feature a remolded head with busted eye and includes a mini Silas molded inside Breakdown's chest cavity. Images mirrored below.

Wow! I'm very glad I sprang for the Silas Breakdown! He is different enough to fully justify getting this version and the AM-12 Breakdown. Having Silas inside his chest explains the different grill mold. Overall, I'm very excited to get him.

Smokescreen still doesn't impress me. His head mold looks like Knockout's shape with just a different face. This remold/retool/whatever is NOT different enough to justify the price of importing him...at least to me. I'll pass on him.

Smokescreen on the other hand... This remold simply does not work for him. While his vehicle mold looks pretty good (and so does his head mold), I really can't stand his robot mode. If Hasbro doesn't release a new mold version of him then I guess I just won't have a Smokescreen in my TFP collection.

I was trying to collect every show character (and a few others because TFP Rumble seems awesome) but I gave up on that after seeing how crappy Airachnid is. Oh well, I can still get all of the good show characters!

There is no eye patch and there isn't supossed to be one. It's more of a hole with a more earth looking robotic eye.

Silas! Stop trying to pretend you're Dinobot and his rigid grill structure! Next thing ya know, you'll be quoting Shakespeare and wielding a rotate blade! :P :MAXIMAL:
