    The class size speculation on megs n unicron has me interested...i just hope they are executed well.

    I could have sworn I was underwhelmed by pics of optimus n bee at that class size...

    Autobot swerve?...the hell?

    They're Weaponizers. What dont you ppl get about that?

    A Hasbro rep said at Toy fair said that Weaponizers (the new LC) are going to be slightly cheaper than B4.

    Weaponizers - $29.99

    Technically, it is a new size class b/c they're are slightly smaller than LC figures.

    Well Unicron will probably transform into planet earth.

    Gaia = Earth

    I can't YES hard enough. Either Voyager or Weaponizer is fine, I'm just ecstatic that Unicron is getting a toy at all.

    Curious on what Megatron/Unicron end up being. My money's on them still being Voyager-class with bigger Microns, though.

    REALLY want the Unicron though given his Micron will likely turn into a mini-Unicron.

    He'll probably be a Megatron figure that sports loads of translucent purple plastic that pulsates or lights up to mimic the "dark energon" flowing through his veins.

    If they do go that route, then I want a Ratchet repaint with loads of neon green from that time he was juicing and hitting on Arcee.

    What they're going for in-store is not the retail price, which is what this is. All the AM Voyagers have a 4200 (w/tax) yen retail price. This is 5,000, or perhaps 5250 taxed. So, it's not as big a gap as you're thinking.

    If they get around to the end of Season 1 around September or sometime before that, releasing Unicron around then in Japan makes sense. Very cool to see either way. Hopefully we gets news regarding what exactly this and the Megatron figure will look like at Botcon.

    Cool a Unicron that turns into Earth so now i can make my Amazon Exclusive Unicron Eat Eath-sized Unicron.

    I hope to obtain a Black Voyage Megs repaint.

    Though I am betting neither of these figures are coming to the United States.

    Jet Vehicons?????????? As if the regular ones aren't gonna be hard enough to find. :crazy: :drunk :rolleyes:

    Why is everyone asking what he'll turn into? Wouldn't he turn into Earth? Oh man, imagine if Hasbro splurged on the paint apps for this one...you see all the continents as they're getting torn apart by giant glowing purple dark energon veins! I doubt that will happen but hey, Radicons, get on it.

    Now that you mention it, his alt mode could very well be an earth with exaggerated volcanos, canyons, continents, etc. with cracks throughout them that light up purple. Imagine if the volcano lights up and shoots a missile that represents an eruption of flying dark energon debris.

    This toy sure has interesting potential.

    I hope so too! my main concern is that it won't be a new mold, just a remodel of something previously existing. while it's a possibility, it also seems a tad unlikely. there aren't really any unicron-esque bots in prime, so there's a good chance of him getting his own figure. we can hope!

    A Transformers Prime UNICRON?!?!?!?! I HOPE that we get him in a Leader Class so that there will be some semblance to the scale of the RiD Voyager Class. I hope that Unicron will also scale to the Unicrons that Prime was fighting in that crevasse In the "One Shall Rise" Epsiodes But that is up in the air and I'll wait and see what the FINAL product will look like!! Fingers crossed!!

    You know guys it would have been easier to just go onto robotkingdom.com and look at the prices in US$ as opposed to debating about Yen!

    Both Darkness Megs and Unicron are listed as $51.90 each while all the voyager sized AM-* releases so far are $46.90

    So they are either larger than voyager size or comes with more than one Micron.

    Sorry to shatter people's dreams but I doubt $5 price difference will give you a leader class figure
