Can we get a shot of the entire package? Thanks man.
Better pictures here:

I'm sorry but I did not make this picture.
Got it. Looks great. Thanks!
Is the blue micron the same one that was handed out to children at the last event?
No, I believe the one you are thinking of is the shining O.P., which was the translucent version of the micron AM voyager Optimus Prime came with.
What's different between this and the hasbro version? Paint scheme?
Crap total brain fart...I forgot shining Op was actually an Op
Shining O.P. is being rereleased as far as I can tell, this time through Amazon Japan for those who preordered Arms Master Optimus Prime.
Updated with new pics!
Can someone change the title to: AM-21 Arm Master Optimus Prime in hand + box images.
Starting to worry me a bit...we've been assured (retailers) that this was a special set with five microns...I'm not seeing five...hm.
Okay, I'm glad I am not the only one that was curious about that. I was dieing to see out of box pictures just to figure out what the "bonus" microns were and so far nothing.
nice, but I'll pass thanks. Great Matrix/ Sword Arms Micron thou.
I think there has been confusion with the Battle Shield set released through TRU earlier in the year (three exclusive recolours of the shield Arms Microns) or else it refers to the prize campaign running in Japan to mark the launch (four special recolors of R.A. and Shining O.P. through Amazon)
I'm not sure. The actual solicitation information from suppliers stated AM-21 as a special limited edition with five Arms Microns. There was no mention of a second version with just the Matrix and R.A. And that info is the stuff straight from the Takara catalogs, so...hm.
Cool pictures. On closer inspection, I think my enthusiasm for this figure has cooled somewhat. Still looks neat and I want that Matrix sword thing but Weaponizer Prime himself is a tad underwhelming (good bot mode if a bit hollow looking but the alt mode leaves something to be desired). My desire turned from must-have to a maybe.
And some retailers listed their preorders as coming with the bonus microns.. so doubtlessly there are people other than myself who purchased it because of the "bonus" microns. Takara, I am disappoint.
So, interesting development. I have an e-mail in to my supplier to try and figure out what, exactly, is up.
Packed into my shipment, along with the AM-21 Arms Master Primes, were some bags, each containing five Microns. However, all five in each bag are Shining O.P., the clear blue version, and there aren't enough of them to be five of him per figure. So I'm trying to find out which of the following is the situation here:
1) The bonus Microns thing was an error of some sort, and the bonus is really meant to be Shining R.A. or somesuch
2) Shining O.P. is the bonus, and the "5" was an error in the catalog
3) There ARE supposed to be five Shining O.P. per figure but they were meant to be a retailer bonus, not a bonus that went along with the figure necessarily, in which case I didn't get what was intended
4) There is supposed to be Shining O.P. for each figure, but also four other microns (maybe new, maybe "reissues" of prior promo Microns), in which case I again did not get all that was intended.
great photos man!! I cant wait to get mine but I dont plan on opening mine
