HK-TF strikes again with another interesting solicitation find. It appears Takara Tomy is planning a Transformers Prime Arms Micron Optimus Prime and Gaia Unicron two pack, which makes sense considering Gaia Unicron's combining gimmick. It also appears this set may be released under the Generations line. Image mirrored below.

very difficult to make out. I'll wait for more info before commenting on the looks.

Whilst I'm not overly concerned with getting him, I hope there's still going to be an individual Arms Micron release for Unicron for those who don't want to have to buy yet another Prime.

Am I the only one who thinks that armour mode is retarded? Why the... when the **** would Unicron or Optimus do that. Megatron and Unicron, okay, but Optimus? Thats just lame marketing to try and sell both figures.

Unicron on his own looks cool though.

Eh, I bet someone will rip Optimus Prime out of the box and just sell Unicron on eBay (without removing him from the box), or sell him loose, or not.......
.....
....
...Look! A distraction!!!!

Meanwhile some of us are still waiting for our first good look at the bloody figure.

You are not the only one. I just can't make this work in my head. Given the events of the series I wouldn't even say combining with Megatron makes sense. I can't imagine Unicron allowing himself to be used as armour or weapons for one of his rival's puny creations.

Unicron didn't have an alt-mode. Takara improvised. Takara failed.

I called it!!!

I said it would be Prime and Unicron teaming up for god only knows what reason and combining. HA!

Original post:



"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.
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."

Ya, its not in Unicrons character at all. I thought he had some sort of flying ship alt mode... or hovercraft or some crap. If the armour is the only alt mode he gets, it'll be easier to pass on this.

The initial images of him showed a hovercraft/tank alt mode, fairly similar to Cybertron Unicron.

Haha I felt the same. Blurr is a pretty big car though, but BB is def atleast the smallest standard. Thankfully the Vehicon figure is just so amazing, it can get away with it.

It really is a shame NitroBee is so much smaller. He could have been such an awesome alternate rendition of the character and Axcelerator homage. That said, I like him, he's fun, he's just not spectacular.

I seriously cannot tell what is up with that set. But from what I could see, it looks like Unicron has an alt-mode that has him trying to violate Optimus. :P

Hmmm... That could explain why he chose to lose his memories in the series. :-?

Guys, just take the Takara Prime Nemesis Prime toy and combine THAT with Unicron. There. Problem solved.

Unicron looks pretty cool... Though if the alt mode is just that exo suit, it's pretty lame.

As for Prime, if they released him in the Battle Shield dark colours, I would totally buy this... That battle shield prime looks boss! It's almost like the FE one!... Then comes the crappy regular AM Prime again...

That's a really good idea. I'm going to do that on my display shelf when they both arrive.

Anyways this line has way way more Decepticons than Autobots, the first of many as in the case of many other lines, my Autobots always outnumbered the Decepticons.

Wouldn't be surprised if this Unicron possessed Optimus, since Unicron would need the power of a Prime to wield any WMDs derived from Primus or the original 13 Prime's power.

Still, I love these types of box sets.

And suddenly we have a theory that makes sense. I mean, Megatron has a handful of Prime-equippable-only artifacts after all, and Unicron will be weak for the time being, he needs a body. And who better than Prime? In fact, what better TOOL than that forging hammer to fix Unicron properly??
