Hmm... I have no guesses about what "AM" stands for. But it must have to do with the Japanese series name, considering previous Takara designations always included such designation. The above EZ, for example.

I didn't notice those Bot Shots before! Love them! I wonder if my girlfriend will want some of them... :D I also wonder if this confirms some sort of Earth mode for Megatron, or if they're basing it off DOTM Megatron instead.

Hot Shot could also be cool, but I hope this doesn't mean I need to start collecting Hot Shots... I guess I already have the Cybertron version and don't collect Armada, so I would only need to track down Universe and Energon Hot Shots...except I sold off Cybertron Defense Hot Shot. #-o

Also, I didn't think the clear forearms on Starscream would be on the final toy. I figured it would be partially painted. Sucks. Man, I hate gimmicks. :BANG_HEAD:

TERRORCON Cliffjumper eh!? Don't know how I feel about him being called a "terrorcon".

Terrorcon Cliffjumper? Is that what their calling this "Zombie" Or will it be the one with the hammer, or an all new cliff? I'm leaning on zombie, but turning cliff into a decepticon sub-servent would be good for the story!

Guys, we were told about Terrorcon Cliffjumper many months ago. That's what these Dark Energon zombies are called: Terrorcons. Ergo, Terrorcon Cliffjumper.

Well all of my enjoyment and happiness waiting for this line to expand after First Edition has been crushed... crushed about as hard as seeing Metalhawk's face for Botcon.

I've seen a photo of a blue repaint of deluxe Bumblebee with red highlights. I wonder if this will be Hot Shot. It would fit as Hot Shot did fill the same kind of role as Bumblebee, but it would suck because it's just a lazy excuse for a figure.

Looking forward to Ratchet. I just hope he has his giant twin scalpels.

If that's Animated Hot Shot I'm losing my shit.

NEVER have I ordered an Optims Prime figure quite so quickly.

I am, of course, talking about the First Edition figure.

Uh...what was that? I'm pretty sure the story indicates a Deluxe Ratchet is coming...

Yeah, sorry. The original story had info on Ratchet:

GetRightRobot wrote:A host of new information has surfaced regarding Transformers Prime and the subsequent toy lines. First is the Transformers PRIME Entertainment Pack - Starscream & Bumblebee which was reported on earlier. View additional information and join the ongoing discussion here.

Site sponsor Robotkingdom.com has also listed Hasbro Transformers PRIME DELUXE ASST WAVE 3 2012. This wave includes Bumblebee with extra weapons, Ratchet, Arcee, Vehicon, Knockout and previously unannounced HOT SHOT! Not much is known about TF Prime Hot Shot at this point. Whether or not he will be a new character in Season 2 or the same Hot Shot from Armada. However, this does confirm the existence of a Deluxe Ratchet.

Did anyone else see that news thumbnail and think for a second, "Hey it's Armada Optimus Prime!"?

Well...I did. :P

Sign me up for this,I want this to be a voyager toy & a leader sized toy. the leader sized version could come with a $27 usa ultra sized robot,that uses trailer/armor to turn into a leader sized robot mode.

I like the big shots tank/bot megatron toy design. but probably won't but it due to it being a brick.

That is hot shot, but the prime hotshot probably won't look like this. He'll most likely look on the lines of this Image

Did you mean to say that the Maroon and Gold 'Bot is Hot Rod?

I think there are two reasons that Prime might go with Roddy as Hot Shot. 1) Hot Rod is probably not available for trade mark. 2) Hot Shot in Armada pretty much had the role that Bumble Bee plays now. (And a close color scheme, too.) It wouldn't make a lot of sense to include the same Hot Shot character type from Armada.

On the other hand, why not just call him Rodimus. Hasbro must still hold the Trademark for him...

Guys, we were told about Terrorcon Cliffjumper many months ago. That's what these Dark Energon zombies are called: Terrorcons. Ergo, Terrorcon Cliffjumper.


Yes...that's all fine and wonderfull. I wasn't aware of that but it doesn't negate the fact that I'm not a fan that a Terrorcon is now a 'zombie' Autobot.

We all know who and what the Terrorcons are and now it's all discombobulated with this misappropriation of identity in my opinion.

That's just the G1 purist in me.....so what.

Well, go share your griefs with the Energon Terrorcons. I'm sure they'll sympathize with you. 8-} :o) :PEACE:
