Here's an interesting little piece of news that almost slipped through the cracks from the Robotkingdom Newsletter that was posted earlier this morning. Takara's Transformers Prime Arms Micron AM-15 and AM-16 identities were revealed!

AM-15 Voyager Megatron
AM-16 Deluxe Vehicon Jet Type
AM-17 Voyager Swerve

No images have been posted, but it seems obvious AM-15 Megatron will be a reuse of the "Robots in Disguise" Voyager mold with the inclusion of a new Arms Micron. AM-16 Vehicon Jet Type on the other hand is a mold we have yet to see. Both are scheduled to release in July.

We also have verification that AM-07 Voyager Swerve will be Breakdown repaint as many have already speculated.

I didn't miss it. I have placed an order for 3 of the jet vehicons.
So happy I had the cash to jump on this pre-order immediately. Now I don't have to worry about paying mark-up prices with BBTS or TFSource.

Of all repaints that Hasbro can make.....I really want them to make a Cloudraker and Fastlane repaint of these Vehicons.

Either way I goin to call both molds Pounce and Wingspan for now

Gonna need at least five of each type of Vehicon (five cars, five jets). That should be enough. :-B

"Beacon" = "Biikon" = "Vehicon" (the car one). Robotkingdom mistransliterated the name.

Ahhh, that makes much more sense now. Mistranliterated. Not a real word, but certainly a mouth full.

Theres no confirmation, but its pretty likely. its different enough to require a new mold, so its not like itll be a repaint or retool

Based on the silhouette in the image, the Vehicon Jet appears to be... a Bumblebee repaint!

;)

(If they don't have an image, they shouldn't put up any image at all. It looks like the store doesn't know what it's doing when they put up an image of a different product as a placeholder.)
