Cybergundam has shared a scan from Figure King 171. This scan shows several upcoming Japan only releases, including Million Publishing's Artfire and some information on Masterpiece MP-12 Lambor / Sideswipe.

The main focus here though is with the Transformers Prime Arms Micron Gashapon figures. Seen here in full color are the Optimus Prime Blaster and Bumblebee Sword Arms Microns, which resemble and are colored like their namesakes. Also shown are two versions each of Gob (cobra) and Zad (lizard), they seem to be coming in black and purple versions. No idea if that means one is meant to be rarer than the other though!

Check out the scan by clicking on the image thumbnail attached to this story.

Just a head's up: your image doesn't show up.

And when I try to just copy/paste the link, it takes me to a forbidden message.

I almost forgot about the OP & BB Microns. Glad to see them in color.

Looking at that Sideswipe, it seems very plausible to me that he could have a Sunstreaker mold as well.

Captured Prey has them for preorder as does BBTS.

Perhaps someone can read that Japanese and see if it explains the alternative colours shown on those Microns ?

I wonder if they are chase figures or some sort of Campaign toy ?

I always thought since they are nearly uncoloured there would be some merit to making them in more than one colour especially if they are still kits - you could mix and match them then to make them less overwhelmingly of a single colour.

Does anyone know if Captured Prey will offer both the black and purple (pink) versions?

The article doesn't say anything about chase (only mentioning them as Cobu 1 & 2, Zado 1 & 2 - sorry if the spelling is incorrect). I'd think if there is a chase it should be a variant of Optimus Blaster....that one is neat!

Not sure if it's covered already, but the article also alludes MP Lambor is officially licensed by Lamborghini. The exact wording in the text is "expected", but I should think they won't mention it unless they are certain.
Now that makes me interested in MP Lambor. I'm not a MP collector or a Lambor fan, but I was really into the 80s "Super Car" craze in Japan!

Yeah - it's probably just random-packed color variations. So there are 6 varieties - black and pink of each of the animal molds and Op and Bee...

Me too, though I worry we're in the minority here.

MP Sideswipe's the interesting thing here - can someone do a translation of that blurb, please? See if it gives us some useful info..

Would hope that it will be in scale with the rest of the MP figures like Rodimus Prime.

In the meantime, hiding a stack of around $150 inside MP-10's trailer should look equally good! Kidding of course; it's no less of a reasonable expectation that for MP-12 to come with the MTMTE jetpack that Optimus Prime took for a spin, as far as cross-compatible play features go.
