New Official Pics of Arms Micron Ultra Magnus, Leo Prime and Shockwave

TakaraTomy has updated their website listings for three future Arms Micron releases: AM-27 Ultra Magnus (a redeco of the recently release Voyager Ultra Magnus with a new Arms Micron hammer), AM-28 Leo Prime (a redeco of Thundertron in colors resembling those of Lio Convoy from Beast Wars II, with a Micron companion resembling Moon, from the same show.) and AM-29 Shockwave (Who is, oddly enough, the Takara release of Generations/Fall of Cybertron Shockwave, with a new Micron in place of his pre-existing cannon). All three are due for release in December of this year.

Needs a remolded head to be proper, IMO.

These are pretty radical! I'm probably gonna skip all of them, but I really want Magnus' and Shockwave's micron!

UM and Shockwave's microns are indeed awesome.

Leo Prime's color scheme is much more eye catching than Thundertron's.
HeroicC300
What the hell is up with Shockwave's photos?

Also, anyone hoping that Magnus' Arms Micron can plug into the artillery slots and be like the CV figure's cannon?
Cyber-Scream
Leo and Magnus look great.

Seeing this pictures makes me weak. I don't want to collect the Prime line, but they all look so great.
Maverick Hunter Christian
Leo Prime is an absolute get.
FakeEyes22
Leo Prime's Micron is freaking MOON!? That's insane. I want this insanity.
megatroptimus
Let's see. Want. Want. And want.

Oh, great catch. Wonderful BWII homage going on with AM-28. Even more awesome now.
Insane Galvatron
Leo Prime is a must get...
Shatterpoint
Holy crap, Leo Prime's sword is Moon!
Shatterpoint
So Leo Prime's Micron is Moon? Awesome.

All he needs is a new head.

Get on it Dr Wu.
Ribieconvoy
I love that they kept Thundertron's head for Leo Prime. It helps make it seem much more like a different character instead of just Optimus Prime's head on a lion transformer's body, which is what he usually looks like.

Leo Prime is MUST OWN and i already have thundertron on the way

his micron is frickin MOON from beast wars II!

Moon (BWII) - Transformers Wiki
Grimlockimus
My interest in Leo Prime has just doubled. Still unsure if he's worth the extra cost, seeing as my Thundertron seems to fit in with the Autobots well enough.
shibamura_prime
I didn't like Thundertron, but the Leo Prime deco makes me reconsider the toy.
Gryph
Ultra Magnus' micron appears to be Armada Overload, aka Micron Legend Ultra Magnus.
HeavyArms
wow these look nice especially leo prime
LegendAntihero
I'll skip AM Ultra Magnus. If the Hasbro version's weapon is decent, I won't buy the Arms Micron.

...Magception?

I'm sure I'll get this Leo Prime, he looks quite a bit better than the older versions.

PrimeOQZ
Now I know I can skip thundertron and get leo prime.
deltagod
Is the Shockwave based on the FoC Hasbro one?
OptionZero
yes
General Tekno
Much as I love Magnus' micron, can't justify the toy. The stickers look great in altmode, but I fear all the color in robot mode is coming from stickers.
miscreant
I didn't want to want Leo Prime. And now i do.

Even Broadside is a better toy than the Leobreaker mold.
MisterGuyMan
I want Ultra Magnus...

Ooh, must get a Leo! The rest are ok but don't desire them.

Heh heh, I actually have two of those. I bought him because he could combine with Cybertron Optimus Prime. I didn't have Leo Breaker at the time.
LegendAntihero
Leo Breaker looks very Zoidish.
ComicGuy89
Ooh, Leo Prime looks really good! I don't usually buy Takara Transformers, where would be a good place to import them from?

Just get it from BBTS.

Thanks, would love to, but shipping to Australia would kill me. That's why I'm looking for direct import alternatives.

Simply must get that Leo Prime, it's fantastic! Great homage.

amiami (If they had him in stock), Hobby Search and HLJ.

Surprisingly,this Shi\ockwave should be under the TakTomy TG series but wondering why is it in this AM series.

Leo Prime in Lion mode looks good
supernova222
i really REALLY hope this isnt the closest we get tp a transformers prime figure of shockwave
TCJJ
These look really good, although I'm still undecided on Leo Prime. I've felt very iffy about Thundertron to begin with, and seeing it in these colours doesn't do anything for me either, but I don't dislike it.

I'm definitely going to be getting Shockwave and Ultra Magnus, though. Thank goodness TakaraTomy gave Ultra Magnus a weapon that doesn't suck. I'm looking at you, Hasbro, you horrible people.

I like how Shockwave's Micron just fits right into the figure without looking out of place. Leo Prime's, however, is just a remould of Arcee's Micron, which is kinda neat to be fair (although the arms sticking down at an angle like that look goofy), but it feels a little lazy that they didn't just make a new one. Still, there's quite a lot of new moulding on it.

It's not a retool but a completely new mold. It does share some of the same transformation but no parts are the same.

The Target exclusive looks marginally better. Marginally.

I'd already decided to pass on Thundertron. (The Zoids coloration just doesn't seem to fit in with TFs.) But this guy looks great. Preordered from BBTS. (Hope they aren't too many difficult stickers.)
[Wing_Saber-X]
I demand December to arrive! nao. But seriously, Takaratomy really hit this one out of the park, esp Leo Prime repaint of Thundertron.

Robotkingdom, HLJ, AmiAmi, Plamoya

Just when I was thinking of dropping Leo Prime, these pictures come along and reassure me that this guy deserves my money, and while I like AM Magnus's hammer, I prefer the paint (what little there is) of the Hasbro release. I'll probably just pick the hammer up if/when TT releases it on its own.
Smasher
I wish Hasbro would just go ahead and say if they are going to repaint Thundertron as Leo Prime or not, because that Takara Leo Prime is aces.

I would presume not at this point.

If they're planning a redeco it would likely be something else.
