Takara Tomy Transformers Prime Arms Micron Thundercracker and Orion Pax Image

Motto: "I ain't got time to bleed!"
Weapon: Gattling Gun
The CyberGundam blog has posted a small image from Figure King 176 of Takara Tomy's upcoming Transformers Prime Arms Micron Thundercracker and Orion Pax. Both are First Edition repaints, Thundercracker being a redeco of First Edition Starscream and Orion Pax a reuse of First Edition Deluxe Optimus Prime, which will hopefully feature Decepticon faction symbols.

We've mirrored the image below.

Orion Pax is... a red and blue repaint of OP? Am I missing something?

He's the first release of the Deluxe Prime mold in Japan. In the show, Optimus had temporary memory loss, called himself Orion Pax as a result, and was entranced by Megatron. Hence the possibility of a :CON: on his shoulder which did appear in the show.

2) RiD 2001 Dreadwind & Smokejumper
3) RiD 2001 Destructicons Bludgeon & Scourge
4) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

If anyone has spare RiD Mini-Con armor pieces for Glacius and Beastbox, hit me up!

I assume that these will be available through BBTS or one of the other online stores. I must have that Thundercracker. Any ideas on what the cost shipped to the US might be, those of you who have bought this sort of thing before? Thx.

Ah, I see. I didn't realize it was the Deluxe mold. And I'm not real familiar with all the fiction. Now it makes sense.

Guess this is how Japan's getting the Deluxe FE mold, and it's a good idea.

Nope. They aren't bringing in either Skywarp or Thundercracker since they want to keep Starscream as unique as possible.

I thought it was already confirmed Skywarp is a Tak exclusive. I don't see a Thundercracker release in the U.S at all, though.

Orion Pax may not be a bad idea! And YES! We're getting Thundercracker! At least he's in Deluxe Class, but why would Takara make OP be a redeco of the FE Deluxe mold?

Because they haven't gotten that mold yet?

And maybe the smaller size will help emulate the "younger Optimus Prime" aspect that Orion Pax represents.

Thanks for clearing that up. I to was feeling the same way.

Definitely getting Thundercracker. Will have to think about Orion Pax, and that's only if he does have the :CON: on his shoulder.

odds are that Orion will have both Autobot and Decepticon symbol decals. Looking forward to getting Thundercracker and completing my seekers.
