Takara-Tomy have updated their Transformers Prime site with new high-res official images of Arms Micron AM-10 Bulkhead with B.H. and AM-11 Arcee with A.R.C.

The Arms Micron series toys each feature new Micron posts to attach their Arms Microns to - they also feature the "build it yourself" Arms Micron model kits and decal sheets. According to the new pages, B.H. and A.R.C. can be combined with Cliffjumper's C.L. to form a "Super Galaxy Launcher"

Read on to check out our mirror of the images.

miscreant
I thought some of Takara's promo images for Soundwave misrepresented him as closer to show color than he actually is.

So im taking these with a pinch of salt.

Bulkhead is the least worst out of all the Takara PRiD figures. He actually has something resembling a wrecking ball instead of a huge piece of mechtech and his ports aren't as intrusive.

Bulkhead's little dude looks cute.

I wish that Arcee came with two silver blade microns.

Needs moar pink. How will fans know that Arcee is the lone female Autobot on the team?

Arcee looks really good, just wish her side face panels were pink too.

So do I... But I guess since the "pink" is stickers... I guess they thought those stickers would be too tiny...

Hmmm... Maybe if there is leftover "sticker" stuff after taking the sticker off maybe I can cut out some makeshift "side pieces" and crest.

I will have to see when she gets here.

Im just not a big fan of the stickers...they look a bit off at some places -.-
I still think the best of the Takara RID so far has got to be Soundwave, as he has all the pros of the Hasbro version, and his micron is actually helps him to become more screen accurate!

They sure look different from the catalog

Those are not even the same things. That is a different product. Those are different Microns.

I think Bulkhead looks really cool.

What's up with the headlight stickers? Those will be on the floor in no time

Arcee's micron reminds me of Elita-1.

Arcee, Cliffjumper and Bulkhead's weapons connect?

Must resist joke...
World Prime
Stickers are tacky Takara! Unless they're reprolabels...
GAUGE
PASS.

They gave Arcee giant puffy pink nipples.
But they put them in the wrong place.

Bulkhead's window stickers work abolute wonders in both modes.
The stupid grill sticker...not so much.

I agree. The window stickers really make a difference compared to the RID one. Also the wheel rims being painted.

Such a worthwhile contribution to the conversation.

Anyway...I'm liking the window stickers and painted rims on Bulkhead (assuming the photo depicts the final version-- we weren't sure as to Terrorcon Cliff's actual colours for a while due to conflicting photos), but the typical cost of importing a Takara Voyager probably still puts it out of my range. I'm gonna stick with plan A and grab the Micron once it becomes available individually, and just give it to Hasbro Bulkhead.

Is it me or does Bulkheads micron resemble the Rock Lord Nugget?

Gotta admit, these are the first pics that make RID Bulkhead look pretty decent - not as show-accurate as the FE, obviously, but a decent looking toy in of itself. A few paint apps (or failing that, sharpie pen effects) on the Hasbro version that replicate the sticker details like on the windows should make all the difference. Also, Hasbro REALLY need to take notes on how to make stock photography look good.

^This. Or to put it only a little more mildly, this Bulkhead looks a bit better to me with each update on it so far, particularly in robot mode. Reiterating any general comments about the Arms Micron ports would sound like blubbering at this point, and for what they are, those on the sides look well integrated for what they are. Only the sunroof turned AM port looks a bit out of place. That and being festooned with presumably three Autobot symbols in vehicle mode, but that'll take me down the topic of what is and isn't show accurate, which again, has probably already been ably discussed for both figures here.

Strictly speaking you can connect any of the weapons with anyone. So that means you can also combine Airachnid, Arcee and Starscream's weapons.

But according to the pages the Arms Microns for Arcee and Bulkhead get a canonical combination with Cliffjumper's one.

I think Arms Microns are able to be combined any number of ways with awesome results. that was the plan from the start. very nifty and worthwhile to get most of them, IMHO.

Bulkhead looks better than the Hasbro version IMO, but not sure if I'm going to bite yet.
Mewtwo
Reprolabels NEEDS to get on this and make stickers for the PRID line like Bulkhead here and his windows. Shows it CAN make the more basic paint apps Hasbro version look even better. Come on Repro...
