    Just found this online, not sure if it's new (if not please delete).

    Kapow Toys now have it up for pre-order, along with several other new figures including deluxe Ratchet, voyager Starscream, deluxe Breakdown & Knockout.

    Here's the pic: http://www.kapowtoys.co.uk/popup_image.php?pID=5206&id=1

    Nice to see it also comes with one of those new Micron figures instead of a regular weapon!

    EDIT: I should probably add that they all come with related Microns that turn into character-specific weapons, eg Cliffjumper's cannon, Ratchet's scalpel blade etc

    The rest of them can be found here: http://www.kapowtoys.co.uk/advanced_search_result.php?keywords=TFAM&x=3&y=8

    Would've been nice if he was a new mold instead of a repaint of Starscream or at least a new head.

    ... holy crap. Wasn't interested in Deluxe Screamer at all but... that looks awesome. I like the Minicon, of course. Hope that, at least, comes out Stateside.

    wow! that looks pretty cool! if there was one mold that would work really well to be reproduced into all the other seekers, it'd be the TF Prime starscream mold.

    so i hope Takara releases more seekers with that mold!

    plus, is that bombs instead of missiles??

    I would have been disappointed if he wasn't a straight repaint of Starscream. The seekers should always be repaints of the same mold.

    I think Prime is the one show where they can change it up a bit, just because Starscream's design is so reflective of his personality that it would look wrong if the other three shared the same body type.

    Man I wish I could afford the Takara Tomy versions of the Prime toys. I'm lovin' those Micron Arms figures. Beats the crap out of Mech-Tech anyway.

    BTW, I wonder if the TT Prime Voyagers will still have the light-up Mech-Tech weapons and the translucent parts. Cuz if not, well... then I may just need to find a feasible means of purchasing them.

    One interesting note is that some toys seem to come with or without the microns. Hurrrr?

    Same, and I totally agree. The only time the seeker mold should be changed within the "Big 3" is if there is a significant mold problem. I'm glad they are doing Skywarp! I've been hoping for him in the Prime line since Day 1. Now, all we'd need is the announcement for ThunderCracker.

    Skywarp's black and purple color scheme makes just about any mold look bad ass.

    If Takara are kicking in Minicon molds, that does mean less chance of them offering improved paint jobs?

    I don't think those Microns are enough of an inducement for me,


    EDIT: Does it also mean the Takara versions of Powertizer toys, wont have LED Weapons?
