That pic of Unicron kinda looks like he combines with Optimus? Or is that a size comparison?
Anyway he does look pretty cool, well from that tiny little pic we've got here.
Darkness Megatron looks like he has black upper arms and legs. His Mini-Con also looks a lot like the Deluxe version, is it the same or a larger version? :-?

Good eye. Wasn't expecting that. I suppose in Jetfire's absence he has to combine with someone. :roll:

I thought if Megatron had a nice silver paint I'd be all over it, but the Microns replacing the basic weaponry has really put me off. Not to mention the Micron worts.

I just realised, he seems to come with two microns, one that turns from a bot into his blade and the one from the Deluxe. He might also only come with the bat one and you'll need to get the deluxe version.

Rather naff looking blade in my opinion. I'd assume that since Micron Lugnut has his own panel he'd be included, but not sure I'd put my money on anything these days.

Also, glad to see confirmation of the Prime Mode figures being PCCs. That's a great call from Jelze GoldRabbit the other day. The daftest names in the world and I'm pleased I won't be getting them. The United line has really taken a downwards turn from what it was when it began. Hell, Takara as a whole has in the past year.

B.2. is the placeholder image for Micron. Not every figure is getting a repaint of B.2. as their AM.

But yeah, looks like Megs comes with a Bat Micron aswell as a Cannon Micron.

I was hoping that Japan would do something better with the PCC's
Bombshock - Bruticus/Onslaught
Crankcase - Menasor/Motormaster
Grimstone - Dinoking

ETC

Maybe, just maybe this hints at Unicron deciding he does love his babies (humanity) and giving Optimus a midseason upgrade to help save humanity from something. :michaelbay:
Because Unicron/Prime team up would be epic on levels unheard of.

Also Unicron might be a triple changer, I defiantly see two modes that helpful arrow is pointing to.

So...the jet vehicon is infact car vehicon with some slight rear-end remolding and wings? That is disappointing Takara.

I'd have liked to see the PCCs get a few more repaints, and maybe a bit of mixing and matching with the drones to give us a more traditional Menasor, for example. Not sure I'd spend Takara money on straight re-releases, but these might be placeholder images too, so I hold out a tiny bit of hope.

Other than that, not too bothered by these, will wait for the Hasbro releases, and/or more images.

It's difficult to see from the pictures, but is Megs just a repaint of the Hasbro voyager powerizer?

It's neat that every Japanese TFP figure comes with a Minicon. Though them being exclusive makes me sad. Though that's what the separate orders at BBTS is for, I guess. *shrug*

Dinoking was a Decepticon(well, Destron) in G1 though. /nitpick

From the pics at BBTS, Unicron looks like a similar set to the Optimus Prime base. I just sits down for it's transformation and it looks like a half assed power armor for Optimus Prime. It all looks incredibly lazy
