Our friends and sponsors Big Bad Toy Store have updated with new preorders for the upcoming releases from Takara-Tomy's Transformers Prime line. There's a few new pictures giving us our first looks at some of the upcoming releases plus confirmation that Skyquake
will be getting a Cyberverse class toy in the Japanese EZ-Collection - so we can at least unite Dreadwing and his Spark-brother in our collections with the pocket sized toys!
The upcoming releases are as follows:
Main line - AM-22 Dreadwing
- comes with a fish inspired Arms Micron that resembles Beast Wars Depth Charge's rifle. AM-23 Wheeljack
- comes with an Arms Micron who becomes a sword, also has additional ports added to the front of his car mode. AM-24 Breakdown Cyrus (aka Breakdown Silas)
- only a CAD drawing right now, but the head is the "eyepatch" Breakdown head. Comes with a praying mantis Arms Micron that becomes a double-bladed gauntlet. AM-25 Nemesis Prime
- only shown in silhouette, this should be the black version of AM-01 / RiD Voyager Optimus Prime shown at the Tokyo Toy Show over the weekend. AM-26 Smokescreen
- again only a silhouette, this could potentially be a Knock Out redeco / remold. AM-27 Ultra Magnus
- this would be the Voyager Class Ultra Magnus on show at the Tokyo Toy Show over the weekend. AM-28 Riperamu (Leo Prime?)
- by process of elimination, we're guessing this one would be Leo Prime / Thundertron, the Voyager Class liger / peg legged pirate robot. AM-29 Shockwave
- Arms Micron version of Fall of Cybertron Shockwave. Arms Micron is not shown - Bumblebee's B.2. is used as a placeholder.
EZ Collection - EZ-17 Optimus Maximus EZ-18 Skyquake
- shown only in silhouette, but it'll probably be a straight-up redeco of Dreadwing, with red weapons. EZ-SP1 Autobot Team Set
- giftset of Cyberverse series Optimus Prime, Bulkhead, Bumblebee, Arcee, Ratchet and Wheeljack EZ-SP2 Decepticon Team Set
- giftset of Cyberverse Megatron, Starscream, Knock Out and Vehicon.
No indication is given as to if the gift set versions will be altered from the initial releases.
Also up for preorder on BBTS right now are the Transformers Cap Bots
, Captimus Prime
, and the mysterious United UN-32 Artfire
