TakaraTomy have updated their Transformers website with new official images of Optimus Prime and Bumblebee from the TF: Prime Arms Micron line. These are the same RID molds that we are currently getting domestically, but with newly molded Micron ports and of course the new Arms Microns themselves

They have also announced two new campaign Microns, Vector Oracle and Firebolt. Vector Oracle is a limited (4000 units) translucent green version of Nightstick that will given away at Toys"R"Us locations in Japan for customers who spend 3000 Yen on Transformers products starting February 25th. Firebolt is a G1-ish redeco of PCC Pinpoint that can be acquired by pre-ordering TF: Prime Arms Micron Optimus Prime.

Lastly, the special TF: Prime character videos have been added for TF: Prime Arcee and Starscream.

I am appalled at how much I want Vector Oracle. The others look nice too.

Damn you Takara and your TF: Prime Micron Arms line. Pre-ordered.

Not sure how I feel about the Arms Microns not being silver like in the show, plain silver Microns would look kinda boring, so I guess it's alright, kinda disappointed that they didn't give Optimus any red on his chest and forearms though, other than the shiny-ish, dark-ish red plastic they gave him, he's exactly the same as Hasbro's Optimus, as far as I can tell.

The green nightstick is cool, but I dont have any matching green figures to give him too.

As far as the PCC mold, kind of lame. Remember Mastershooter Creations targetmasters are coming. Takara, burn the mini-con molds and move on...

Just wanting those minicons that Prime and BB have. But I'll wait for the (hopefully) Hasbro release. Are there pics of the bot modes anywhere that I may have missed?

*edit*
Nevermind, I found them.

It would have been great if Takomy would have shot for better paint apps especially Prime, but oh well. :VEHI:

It's very annoying how much I want Firebolt knowing I'll never own him.

I was really looking forward to getting some of Takara's PRIME figures but seeing that they're covered in horrible growths/Micron ports has soured them to me slightly.

CP says, "Those are not microns, or minicons, because they do not have minicon ports that cause robots to morph like Armada minicons, etc."

Sorry it's not a direct quote, but I was scolded (in a nice, fun way of course) last night during the podcast for calling them minicons...

I want Firebolt because of United Rodimus Prime. Having Pinpoint as a stand-in just won't do. Anyone?

And just to make thing clear, I don't consider them "true" Mini-Cons as they don't have a real alternate mode or their unique insignia :MINI: Hell, Nightstick was called a "Minicon" while he clearly wasn't! They're just glorified Targetmasters.

BTW, Happy Birthday CP!!

Concur, Happy Birthday Spacepunch! And I was only passing along info, not telling you what you have to do.

I call them minicons too, because that is the HASBRO aligned catch all for the smaller-sized robots that are usually considered partner-bots (but not always).

Is it CPs Birthday, or are we all, 'hey new microns happy birthday bro!' I guess either, way, happy birthday! XD

Eugh, the ports on these guys look horrible. I think I'd rather have a removable mechtech weapon than a bunch of bumps messing up the alt mode. Oh well, not like I was going to buy them anyway! The only Takara version I'm considering is Ratchet.

Judging by his name, Vector Oracle may be a physical humanoid form of Vector Sigma.

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.
