An Amazon Japan listing has given us a look at the flyer included with the third series of Transformers Prime Arms Micron Gashapons (Capsule Toys). Series three gives us the Ratchet Spanner, Wheeljack Kunai, Starscream Boomerang and Dobo the Dragonfly, who comes in two decos - green with red accents (Beast Wars Jetstorm themed) and a red version with green accents (Tonbotto, Jetstorm's Japanese release, for all intents and purposes). They're due out shortly, so it's something more to look forward to!

Ha! weapon mode "now printing". I think thats supposed to be a dragonfly. Name is Dobo, maybe some kind of play on Tonbo.
soymonk
I wonder what the dragonfly will turn into.
Sol Fury
Good catch, now that you've said that I can't unsee BW Jetstorm, aka Tonbotto, in that design.
SydneyY
Dobo turns into a machine gun according to the description. Also Ratchet is a spanner, WJ is Kunai (ninja weapon). Satrscream is indeed a boomerang.

This series is the best so far!
Sol Fury
Excellent, I'll update the frontpage text. These will look good with their respective partners no doubt
Grimwing
Wow. A boomerang. Their kind of reaching for weapon ideas. But it is a starscream. So everyone is going to want one anyway for a Starscream shrine.

I kind of like the wheeljack weapon and the dragonfly should be another cool decepticon animal weapon for the course.

preorders. preorders. got to find those out there.
SG Roadbuster
am i the only one suddenly reminded of Kamen rider TheBee's zector?
Robogeek28
Looks like I'll be getting myself a dragonfly then.
mrduce1018
I actually really like the Boomerang idea. It is a new idea, and only something Japan can pull off. You know Hasbro would never release something like that on thier own. Lots of great Microns out there again. I for one am very happy about them!

Question: Can someone tell me what the Turtle from Wave 2 is supposed to turn into? Is it a Sheld?
ChaosLordX
well im tempted to get one kunai for wheeljack. and maybe starscreams if i import the voyager
Maetel
sigh, another case preorder as soon as it shows up. it's almost like they're tempting me to get the AM version of these characters just so i have them use their own mini-mes as weapons.
Fort Max
Those are great, second lot were a bit dull.
Autovolt 127
Interesting.
Sidecutter
Yes, the turtle is a shield of some sort.

Got the solicitation for these today, I'll have them listed sometime this week. The assortment is five pieces, so just like all the previous animal microns, the dragonfly one is going to come in two colors.
Daimao
I want that turtle already!
Karhukjnsi
Is there an estimated date as to when these be released?
Aernaroth
Arms microns rule. RECURSIVE arms microns rule harder.

November, I believe. Should coincide nicely with the last known wave of Japanese Prime toys.
ChaosLordX
it cant end there. i need a soundwave arms mircon
Thundershot
I use my existing ones as Targetmaster Transectors. If the larger robot needs to get somewhere small or split up, a part of his consciousness resides in the Micron.

It's the only way to make sense of the character microns lol
rosewater
I love these capsule microns. i got the first series and the second is on pre-order at captured prey, along with a bunch of the arms microns. i really hope hasbro has great sales levels on the blind bagged kreons, so they might see that they could do the same thing with microns in america. c'mon, hasbro! i'm spending 4 to 6 bucks apiece on these, and you get none of it! don't you want my money, baby?
Fort Max
Ta.

Are these up yet and I just can't find them, or are they just not listed as of now?

You might want to fix Photron's price...

Interesting, database must have hiccuped when I was saving that one...
RedAlert Rescue
These were supposed to be released today I think.

Any news on if they actual have been or will be - or if they have been delayed again ?

Looking at that Boomerang Starscream I bet that a pair of them would make the cutest little pair of underwing mounted UAV drones for the Arms Micron (Voyager) version.
payres
Think they've been delayed. There's no in hand pictures anywhere and HLJ aren't moving on my case.

Phil needs new Microns. NOW!

awwwww, LOVE the Jetstorm Tonbot homage with the colours on the Dragonfly

Jetstorm (1997) - Predacon Sky Patrol - www.tfu.info
Tonbot (1998) - Cybertron Forced Reconnaissance - www.tfu.info
Deceptigtar
nice, the dragon fly looks to be a sweet gun!
Autovolt 127
Okay the Jetstorm/Tonbot homage is really cool.
RedAlert Rescue
Looks like the Tonbot/Jetstorm Homage will also double up as a claw weapon.

Oh I finally figured out how to use Google Spell check if the text is hilighted completely the spell check does not work if you just click in the middle of the word it does - heck know what made them change that.. but I'm glad I figured that out as it was dead handy when I had a spelling brain freeze on a word.

Anyway any word on what the new release date is ?
Flexx Ark
These seem to be getting better and better. Wheeljack has been locked up for a while. Now I want Ratchet and Starscream just as much. Why I thought I wouldn't .......
RedAlert Rescue
There's rumours that there's solicitations for the UK Microns wave 2 soon... not heard a lot about it but it would be nice if all the wave got a UK release too. if only as it's a cheaper and easier way to get them if you'd like to repaint some.
CrockAlley
Ha, I just ordered these the day before this new pic showed up.
Necro Prime
Jetstorm was one of my absolute favorite Beast Wars Predacons. A great mold. Dobo has to be a homage.
RedAlert Rescue
I wonder if it's even possible for Dobo in gun mode to be held by Jetstorm or Tonbot ?

If you bought four of them you could also make an entirely green one and an all red one as well with a bit of parts swapping.
TFtoycollector
Really liking the look of these guys. Starscream's head looks a little funny but the rest look cool. I really want that Ratchet spanner.

Anyone know when these are going to be released? I heard it was November but now i'm thinking they might have been pushed back to next year.

More / better pics here, including the combo weapons:

As Snakas (who took those pics) is Japan based, I'd say they are out now.
RayTheSun
Can't wait to see someone make a gestalt mode out of all six of the Team Prime microns.

These ARE out now. I bought these for my son last week. The Dragonfly is by far the best one, IMHO! My son hated it at first, but after realizing it turned into a Gatling gun, he was quite excited and happy he got three of them. Starscream isn't bad either.
ChaosLordX
I definitely need the spanner for my AM ratchet, just need to figure out how to use it better then the pic shows.
JAYSCREAM
i just hope this wave and wave 2 hit the uk. picked up all of wave 1 from toysrus with only 2 bumblebee blades as a double...... but 2 bb blades with his blasters on top...... cool as. makes me want beast hunters bb just to tool him up predator style.
