Hi All -

We have updated our site with some photos of upcoming Takara Arms Micron figures and one of the surprises is Rippermaru is actually Leo Prime! Seems like a typo on Takara's part.

Anyway, attached are images of these figures, and those looking to preorder can order theirs at TFSource here:

Dammmit. DAMMIT!
Takara, why can't you let me save my money!?
Why did you have to make all of these awesome!?

The freaking colors on Rumble and Frenzy!
That head on Leo Prime!
That awesome stamp on the hood of Wildrider!

ARGHHHH!

Also, is Leo Prime's Micron a retool of Arcee's? :o

Really digging Wildrider and Lio Convoy. Frumble still looks balls.

Big freaking duh, we knew that months ago :lol:

So Rumble is red, Frenzy is blue huh? Can't wait to see them in action, especially Leo Prime and Wildrider.

O, in case anyone wonders what the animal Microns are supposed to be: octopus for Frenzy/Rumble, elephant for Wildrider.

If I collected TF Prime figures, I'd be all over that Wildrider. It looks great. Digging the other three too.

Whoa seriously Takara ? Just because you paint a figure in the same color scheme as lio prime doesn't make it a lio prime. I'm pretty sure it's Thundertron's head and the peg leg wasn't replaced by a regular one. It's rare for me to say that, but I'm seriously disappointed.

No retooling is done for that leg: the claw weapon can peg into the peg leg to make a proper foot for Thundertron:

Ah, you misunderstood what I wanted to say. Thundertron's legs are made to be totally symetrical in construction, so I though they would just put two regular legs instead of giving him the pegleg, which looks weird with the foot on it.

I'm intrigued by your statement. What would make it Lio Prime for you? A head-swap? This might be a rather bad comparison, but recall how drastically Optimus Primal (and pretty much everyone else except Megatron) changed from Beast Wars to Beast Machines? Judging by head-sculpt and color scheme, BM Optimus Primal could have been a completely new character, were it not for the show establishing that it IS in fact Primal.

Conversely, Big Convoy bears startling resemblance to Lio Convoy, Beast Convoy, and Convoy. Yet are they all the same characters?

I, for one, don't care too much for the Star Seekers, so don't mind calling the repaint "Lio Prime." I'll just create a story in my head wherein "Lio Prime goes back to a reformated technorganic Cybertron and as such must be reformatted." 8-}

Many of our beloved characters, as far back as G1, were created by Has/Tak simply slapping a new color and a new name on an existing mold.

Leo Prime has a peg leg now. So what? Deal with it. It's OK for characters to change and evolve.

As the poster above me suggested, if it doesn't work within existing fiction, make up your own fiction. All of the fiction in the TF universe was created to support the toys, not the other way around.

I'm pretty sure Leo Prime will have hints of him being a (former) pirate in his bios :) After all not all pirates are bad if Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger is any indication.

The first ever TakaraTomy figure to be named "Leo Prime" instead of "Lio Convoy" in their market. ;)

Whildrider doesn't seem to have Wheeljack's head, but I can't tell if he has Dead End's or a new one.

I kinda like Thundertron's colors better than Leo Prime's, and I'm sure if I get around to reading Exodus and Exiles, I'll feel more strongly about it.

Would it have killed them to give Rumble and Frenzy differently-colored arms microns, rather than the same one in the same colors for both?

Just realized Lio Prime's micron is a re"mold" of Arc (Arcee's micron). The transformation is very similar, the peg is just placed somewhere else.

the Frumble Microns presumably form piledrivers. Since only one comes with each toy, them being the same colour means you can give one of the pair both arms as piledrivers and he won't be asymmetrical.

Wildrider looks damn nice. Leo Prime is pretty cool too, and the micron sword is a lot nicer than the thing Thundertron got stuck with.

Hello Classics Lio Convoy... (that atrocious repaint of Cybertron Leobreaker doesn't count)

Notice that both Rumble and Frenzy seem to use the alternate headsculpt of thta mold that the Hasbro Rumble doesn't use. ;)

Thank you for making the choice between PRiD and AM just a little bit harder. Hmmmm... Hasbro blue + TakaraTomy red = two Hasbro weapons, but only one Arms Micron...

Why not just get all three? ;)

Also, when I was on Allspark, I asked Hydra how he'd handle the toy bios of these two with them being FIBRIR when Hasbro's Rumble is blue... and I got this response:
Oh, just wait for it...
;) Color me excited. :-B
