Can't wait to spend $35+shipping for Beast Hunters Bumblebee. Totally worth it.

Shockwave? pfft, who cares? It's all about Bumblebee.
Megabattimus
The deluxes maybe?

A lot of people.

I don't think there's supposed to be a "G01 - G10". There might either be an error in the codes for these figures and the "G1" is actually GI or GL, or for whatever reason these figures are going to be coded as G1, which would be weird. Most if not all Takara Transformers lines start with Prime as the first figure, and with Bumblebee following the three Voyagers, the other Deluxes probably follow after him.
General Tekno
VERY interesting.... Prime still has green windows BUT a blue sword.
Doc Wheeljack
Thanks for sharing the news, Thundershot... voyager shockwave has made my night!
General Tekno
I think the most interesting bit of this news, to be honest, is that it means Beast Hunters is gonna air straight after S2 finishes in Japan.

Which makes me suspect that whether or not we're getting any seasons after Season 3 is up in the air... BH always struck me as a season that would either get combined with the first 52 episodes in Japan or with a future set of episodes, given we aren't getting full seasons at this point.

That would make sense actually.

I imagine Voyager Shockwave is in Wave 2 of the Hasbro stuff.

So are they going to continue the sticker trend with BH?
Agent Adam
Pretty bummed if there are no microns with these.

actually i think wave 2 us voyagers may have Ultra magnus, there was that Walmart listing someone found a few days ago
Sumner Sturgeon
I kinda hope the sticker nonsense continues, so that I won't feel any need to spend extra money importing.
Anguirus
How anyone gets anything out of this thread other than SHOCKWAVE SHOCKWAVE SHOCKWAAAAAAVE is a mystery to me.
JetFormers
Wonder what Shockwave is going to transform into...
jbz
more paint, less stickers please

I want that Voyager Shockwave.

Confirmation on Shockwave is great (and hopefully a Voyager Hardshell follows).

I will be very curious to see what is different about this line (minor-to-significant changes, like with the Classics lines, virtually no changes like most of the Movieverse stuff, minor changes with stickers and unique molds/accessories thrown in for Arms Micron). Whether microns are included will determine whether I import this line with regularlity or whether I pick and choose like I do with most Takara lines (though it wouldn't surprise me at all if campaign micron releases continue throughout the rest of this year since they still have plenty of micron molds left to cover).

Can't wait to see an image of him!
Chaos Prime

ryu hayabusha

unicronic
Meh, Shockwave Voyager is overkill, we've already had one Shockwave already two is saturation. It is simply unecono.......[DEACTIVATING LOGIC PROTOCOLS].....YEAH BABY, VOYAGER SHOCKWAVE BRING IT ON!!!!!!!!

More preorders listed on front page. Wheeljack, Screamer, Soundwave and Bulk.

Curiously enough, no Ripclaw or Lazerback yet.
steelblade211
he might be a half orange gun. cuz real guns are purple. easy to get confused sometimes.
Scorpio
Voyager Shockwave... mmh... now the waiting before they show us an image and reveal its actually nothing like his current form
gokuz23
It was only a matter of time before the One-Eyed Badass with a Beastly Gun became a toy, this is awesome! I hope we get a Hardshell and a deluxe Trailblazer (he is going to be in a Kreo set and a Cyberverse figure)
bumblebeeprime2
can you give me a link on were i can pre order Shockwave and bumblebee and Prime!!!!

if so PM me! thank you!
Shin Densetsu
Weird that Prime will still have green windows. I wonder if the reason being is that the Star Saber will actually be painted blue instead of molded in blue? Wondering if TakaraTomy will have a battle mask head..
General Tekno
So just to ask... where will Prime be on its airing schedule in Japan when these hit? I assume S2 will have finished airing by then?

I'm guessing the explosion coated Optimus in Synth Energon which changed him into this... thing...
Torque
PSYCHED for Shockwave, though don't know if he'll be on my Prime Shelf or my G1 Shelf. Likely Prime, though will need to wait and see. OMG YES CHOCKWAVE!!!
soundwaverulls
Finally. Proper confirmation of Shockwave. Now let's wait for it to turn out the Walmart listings were fake and this mold turns out to be Takara exclusive.
Shin Densetsu
Hope ol Shocky is big and bulky and not hollow!
Transmetal
We get Shockwave, hopefully a voyager Hardshell will come out soonas well.
Fort Max
Yay for shockwave, begs the question of why they bothered releasing foc shockwave in the prid line now.

Hobby Ark put up some EZ (Cyberverse) Listings now as well:

2) EG-02 Bumblebee, Price=SGD$13, ETA=April
3) EG-03 Prowl, Price=SGD$13, ETA=April
4) EG-04 Smokescreen, Price=SGD$13, ETA=April
5) EG-05 Hound, Price=SGD$13, ETA=April

8) EG-08 Airachind, Price=SGD$13, ETA=April

Well some of those are very interesting.
Taziir
Notice how Shockwave does not have the "Hunter" prefix common to most of the other figures listed. Hopefully the figure won't be covered in random spikes and could sit comfortably in a classics collection.
Shatterpoint
So I guess Arms Micron is over?

Takara may know something we don't, something I've been expecting for a while now - Predaking will be the only Predacon in the show. They seem to save the non-show characters for later. Well, that's my theory anyways.

He'll probably be just like BH Optimus: big and bulky, but with hollow, closed up limbs.

Tank Megatron? Oooooh… Season 3 can't come soon enough. I was thinking earlier today about Megatron becoming a tank in the new season, and I'm all for it

Prowl and Hound or most likely Smokescreen and Ironhide repaints unfortunately.

Also, SHOCKWAVE. HELL YES.

I think there's a likelyhood they will carry on making Arms Microns but not include them with the main toys themselves any longer. They'd be included with self contained sets or in capsule Micron releases instead - so I think they'd still make them - just fewer of them.

But it also seems they're dropping stickers, if Prime is anything to go by.

Shame, the stickers made them fun for me.

Some of those Legends listings almost make me suspect that they're repaints.
