We have some new details regarding Takara's Transformers Prime Arms Micron line from the latest issue of Figure King by way of Autobase Aichi.

First, the Microns will come unassembled on sprues and feature translucent pieces that will somehow tie into a game to be revealed later. We also have the names of the Microns that come with the first six figures from the line:

  • AM-01 Optimus Prime with O.P.
  • AM-02 Bumblebee with B-2
  • AM-03 Cliffjumper with C.L.
  • AM-04 Ratchet with R.A.
  • AM-05 Megatron with Golla
  • AM-06 Skywarp with Baro

Next, the figures will feature less paint than is normally associated with Takara releases, but will come with stickers to add detail. Each figure will also feature multiple newly sculpted ports for the Microns to attach (we already some of these from the official images of Optimus Prime and Bumblebee that we posted this morning).

Update: Toy-World has uploaded the scans from this issue of Figure King. We get another look at AM-01 Optimus Prime and AM-02 Bumblebee, but more importantly we get our first shots of AM-03 Cliffjumper, AM-04 Ratchet, AM-05 Megatron, and AM-06 Skywarp. We also get some ideas on how the Microns can be combined into larger weapons. Also seen new images of MP-11 Coronation Starscream, the recently revealed Vector Oracle and Firebolt campaign Microns, Transformers Prime Cyberverse, and images from the Asahikawa Winter Festival.

Update 2: Cybergundam has added a scan of MP-11 Starscream V2.0 and Vector Oracle from Dengeki Hobby.

Don't have a cow. I just wanna know what the Romanizations of those names are. If you don't have them, do you at least have the names as they were written in Japanese?

Thank you.

Now that I got these, their names Romanize out to being:
Ōpī
Bītsū
Shieru
Arue
Gora
Baro

Not quite sure how to transliterate these names correctly, though I'm leaning towards "Bits" and "Shiel" for the Bītsū and Shieru, but those elongated vowels on Bītsū hold me back.

We may have to have someone better familiar with the Japanese language to properly transliterate them.

For the meantime, you might wanna amend the news post with these Romaji names since one can't always be certain with Google Translate. ;)

Looks like someone on TFWiki is already working on transliterating the names. Thus far, Ōpī is "O.P.", and Bītsū is "Beetwo". I'll keep an eye out for the rest and let you know. ;)

Cool, appreciate it. Hit me with a PM if the rest get translated and you have a chance.

But of course Skywarp is Takara-only.

Optimus's Micron is called Opie? Does Megatron come with Anthony? lol

I like that they gave the lifelines to Ratchet but he also has those ugly holes on him too. Sticking with Hasbro and hoping Reprolabels makes some stickers for him

So, is MP-11 Starscream still a work in progress? Doesn't look any different from the last pics they released. The "side panels" they used in place of the hip kibble is white instead of red.

BTW, I'll make a guess as to what some of the Microns' names are.

Bumblebee's Bitsu = Bits?

Cliffjumper's Shieru = Shell?

Skywarp's Baro = Burrow? [it's a drill, after all]

Megatron's Gora = Gorer?

Optimus' Opie = no idea

Ratchet's Arue = no idea

Sounds like their partner Micron's names have something to do with the name of the partner:

Optimus Prime: O.P. (initials)
Bumblebee: B-2 (two B's, BumbleBee)
Cliffjumper: C.L. (remember, "shi" can also be "si" as it's grouped with the "s" kana)
Ratchet: R.A.
Megatron: Golla (gorilla)
Skywarp: Burro (it's a drill, so I'm using the Beast Machines Mol repaint's proposed name)

Any chance of us in the U.S. getting these Mini-Cons? Of course not...

Actually, they don't look that great now. The figures have a very similar paintjob, with extra holes that make it uglier. The minicons all seems either too squat or thin.

Only the minicons seems to have the nice metallic paint, while the figs are stuck with G1-stlyed chrome stickers. #-o

MP-11 does not seem to have improved much over the previous MP-2 (was it?). Well, i have it on preo-order and i don't own the previous starscream so i'll take it. :D

Glad I held out to see if Takara would release a Voyager Megatron with silver paint; definitely getting that guy. I'm a little on the fence about Takara Ratchet though. On the one hand, he has the little heart beat lines on his side. On the other, he has those fugly grey holes...

Starscream mold as Skywarp is looking sexy. I'd be willing to import that figure.

That's the same FE DLX Megatron, I hope Takara won't disappoint with Voyager Megs.

Paint apps really sucks but was getting it for the Micron Arms so a bit disappointed but will still choose Takara over Hasbro this time around.
