Yeah, I saw the United Artfire news on FB. I'm keeping my preorder at BBTS open for now, but I'm kinda surprised that this is happening.

Same here, I'm very intrigued though. It has to be quite a bit different from the Million Publishing version, otherwise it would be pissing all over the exclusive.

Maybe it's a Prime mold?

Cool, Smokescreen. I wonder if he'll be an Autobot car or Decepticon Jet. Silas Breakdown sounds cool too, I figured that's where they were heading with that on the show.

Hasbro is giving us a Voyager Dreadwing. Breakdown on the other hand, Takara has already announced three versions of the Voyager mold, regular Arms Micron, Autobot Swerve with alternate head, and now Silas Breakdown. Not a peep from Hasbro about a Voyager Breakdown.

No doubt, I would rather pay 20.00 for Hasbro's version and get paint apps rather than pay 60.00 for Takara's and get stickers!

That ripermaru is supposed to be spelled as "reo puraimu", which mean (yes) it was Leo Prime.

Interesting. It would appear that they may be making this in Lio Convoy colours while us in North America maybe will receive Thundertron?

Kinda cool.

I saw "Break Down Cyrus" and my first thought was "So, what, he transforms into Hannah Montana?"

...OK, so, my FIRST thought was actually an "Achy Breaky Heart" joke, but I didn't think people would get it.

I was going to mention Achy Breakdown Heart.

And this isn't the AM one? So what's different about this one?

It's supposed to be read as "Breakdown Silus" ;) This will be the third use of the mold, after AM-12 War Breakdown and AM-17 Autobot Swerve.

And surprise, surprise, AM Shockwave is actually the FoC mold, and Smokescreen looks like Bumblebee.

Ok, forgive me for asking, as I'm not yet up to date on TFPrime,(end of season 1 here!) but a few questions:

Riperamu? BBTS are suggesting 'Leo Prime, maybe?' is Leo Prime on the show (yet?)

Shockwave - the placeholder image is the FOC deluxe Shockwave, is Shockwave on the show already? Or yet?

Silas (or Cyrus) Breakdown - is this just going to be another repaint, or is the character design any different at all from regular Breakdown, or Swerve?

Smokescreen? Has this character been introduced, or, (if FOC Shockwave is somehow being shoehorned into Prime) a repaint of FOC Jazz? Also, the placeholder silhouette is AM Bumblebee, another BB repaint a la HotShot?

Preorders, decisions, decisions!!

oh, I understand that this is the third use of the mold, and that the Swerve one has a new head and is meant to be red, but how will this Breakdown be any different from the AM version (aside from, presumably, not coming with a Micron)? Will he have some kinda weird Silas headmaster gimmick? Or is it meant to be post-MECH mangling? I suppose it's fairly given that he'll be painted rather than stickered, yes?

If you ask me he'll be a straight repaint, Micron and all. MECH still has Breakdown's body as shown in the Nemesis Prime aftermath, but nothing has been revealed beyond that.

I usually grab a few Takara offerings because of their superior paint-apps. Stickers make these all an easy pass.

Actually, looking at the picture for silas breakdown, he looks like he has a new head and a new chest (i dont remember seeing that spiky front grill on the original) and also it looks like he has an orange beard thing? maybe a new head? I hope he's in MECH Black and green colours :D

have you been living on the moon or something? lol

Leo Prime is not on the show. and most likely won't be on the show. the toy, in the US, should be named thundertron (not in the show either) i believe he's in transformers exiles (prime prequel)

this version of shockwave won't be in the show.. takara is just throwing the figure into their line.

silas breakdown is the black repaint i believe with a different grill. . there are photos of it from the tokyo toy fair, swerve has a different head.

smokescreen has not been introduced and it looks like he'll be a repaint of bumblebee (like we need any more)

hopefully that helps a little.
