Prime Arms Micron Darkest Megatron Revealed

More news from TFSource! They have also posted an update on the Japanese Transformers Prime Arms Micron toy Darkest Megatron. The new picture they have posted from a solicit indicates that the core Megatron figure will be another reuse of the Voyager class Megatron from the mainline Prime toys. The solicit also shows that Megatron will come with three Arms Microns, (we assume) redecos of AMW-01 through 03 who combine to form the huge Dark Matter Calibre Sword.

Right now what is shown are placeholders for each toy in the set using previously released toys. What this tells us though is which Megatron toy is being repurposed by Takara-Tomy for their Darkest Megatron and which Arms Microns he comes with.

I had hoped he would come with a new mold for the sword, Hades looks more like the Dark Star Saber than the DMC.

I'm borderline canceling my preorder. The pics looks like Hasbro RID with bonus Microns. Doesn't even have chrome. I just need to see a more definitive pic.

They're just prototypes. Not real toys.

Yeah, I get that. That's why I'm waiting for a more definitive picture before making a move on my preorder. I'm actually more interested in pics of General Vehicon.

I used to think the TF Prime Voyager Megatron was awesome until I got TF Prime AM-05 Arms Micron Deluxe Megatron.

Now I think the Voyager mold is an overhyped piece of shit. Seriously the deluxe mold should've been upscaled as a voyager instead.

The only version of Voyager Megatron worth getting IMO is AM-15 Arms Micron Darkness Megatron which comes in all of it's chromey goodness. The upscaled Gora II and Scythe microns are the icing on an already awesome cake.

RiD Voyager Megatron--Floppy paintless POS.

Dark Energon Megatron--A black version of the above.

Darkest Megatron--Will no doubt be more of the same with a shitty looking sword to boot.
General Tekno
I strongly suspect that he's gonna have a red and gold right arm, given he isn't coming with a Gora micron.
Kaijumaster
hmm, I'll wait for more pictures....but yes! bring on General Vehicon!

takara or hasbro can't deliver the real thing I bet this is the same shitty mold.

I'll wait for pictures of the near-final figure before I decide to preorder it.

I was a bit curious about darkest megs as well originally, but then came down with a grand master plan to get darkness AM 15, buy the third party arm kit with dark star saber and put it on that. There was actually a prototype picture around of the kit on a darkness megs. Looked really nice.

Now if we can just get some info on jet vehicon general

Hmm.. thinking the same. If Megs has black on him I'll be into it for sure.

Where is this 3rd party kit?

I was hoping for a new mold (yeah, I can hope). No new mold = utter dissapointment. Canceled pre-order.

Please make this a Takara Dark Energon Megatron. Now that would be cool.

I think based on the season finale the Jet Vehicon General is going to be one of those white Starscream themed Jet Vehicons from the final battle

Seems like another repaint again,dam TakTomy

I know right?

It's kind of interesting...I guess. Though I'm more curious to see what Hasbro will do with their inevitable Beast Hunters Megatron, tbh.

The Japanese version probably won't even be called that. You know how they like their long ass episode titles.

There better not be any random chrome on this guy.

That's what killed Darkness Megatron for me.

It's gonna be something like:

"Cybertron's Fate! Earth's Darkest Hour!"
