    New exclusive Minicon?

    TakaraTomy just tweeted a link to the 次世代ワールドホビーフェア '12 Winter 開催 (Future Generations World Hobby Fair 2012 Winter Exhibition).

    That website includes the following snippit:

    トランスフォーマープライム人気投票を開催!
    投票に参加してくれた人には、イベント限定マイクロン(小型トランスフォーマー)をプレゼント!
    キミが選ぶキミのヒーロー トランスフォーマーブースで待っているぞ!
    ※人気投票の参加、及び限定マイクロンの配布は、小学生以下が対象です。

    Basically, they're letting kids vote on their favorite Transformers: Prime character. The interesting part, however, is that anyone who votes gets a special "Event Exclusive Micron". There aren't any pictures on the page, so it could be one of the three we already know are being released, but it would not be unlike TakaraTomy to do a totally new minicon repaint for the event!

    The note at the bottom clarifies that both the voting and the exclusive micron are for elementary school children, so you can bet this one will be difficult for adult collectors to get their hands on, too...

    Damn, I must get the Nightstick recolor. Don't really have much love for the PCC microns.

    Not sure if I want to take a train 2 hours just for a minicon, it is tempting though.

    How soon are these due to be released? I'll have to rearrange when I pick up a few other things so I don't miss out on these...

    maybe the grey pinpoint could hint at a united exclusive artfire as seen in this comic panel

    I think it depends on where you want to get them from because it looks like today its in osaka, then tokyo, then nagoya.

    Also, those twitter postings say nothing about any of those microns being the exclusive for the fair this weekend. They say that they're potentially upcoming distribution exclusives for the next wave of United figures being released two weeks from now.

    Looks like two versions of pinpointer (grey and clear yellow) - both named Firebolt - and a recolor of Nightstick (in clear green o_O ). The other two are a previous United Exclusive Micron (Spoilsport) and one of the Transformers: Prime exclusives (Autobot Peaceman).

    These look interesting. Might have to figure out a way to pick them up.

    Neat. I picked up Peaceman/Peacemaker (who makes a nice orange energon axe for TFPrime Voyager Optimus) and Aimless/Misfire (looks great on TFPrime Deluxe Vehicon and, I'd imagine due to similar coloring, Megatron, as arm-mounted energon mining drills). Didn't get Fracas because I already have Groundspike and didn't like the mold very much. But these new offerings look interesting.

    Wait, wait...this twitter is completely private one, NOT official.
    And, he looks like to JUST reprint pics from Yahoo Japan auction...
    So, these microns may be unlelesed protos !?

    Yeah - Sol Fury, the twitter account with the pics isn't an official one. It's a Japanese blogger. The one with the info on the exclusive Micron(s) for the show is official, but doesn't have pics. Also, neither of the tweets with pictures even mentions the New Generation Festival...

    Note that both Firebolts will fit on United Rodimus Prime as he has a screw hole there that will work with the remolded Rodimus in car mode.
