Transformers Prime Japanese Store Exclusive Nightmare Unicron (Darkness Unicron) Image

Takara-Tomy have made one other update to their website today - they've added a page for their next Transformers Prime store exclusive, Darkness Unicron, now referred to as Nightmare Unicron. According to the story text on the linked page, Nightmare Unicron appeared when the spark of Gaia Unicron was sealed away and he represents the still partially unsealed "true" incarnation of the Chaos Bringer, the story is a little fuzzy on this detail by our translation.

As speculated, Darkness / Nightmare Unicron is going to be a black version of the Chaos Bringer, so in his Gaia Armor form he'll blend well with Darkness Megatron or Nemesis Prime.

The page also specifies the launch of a contest, the "Second Arms Improvement Contest", a customizing contest for Japanese fans. It runs from 9th of January to the end of February. There are various prizes including a sound stage with Optimus Prime voice clips, a new Arms Micron Shining R.A. O and giveaways of Nemesis Prime. By our reading Nightmare Unicron isn't being given away through this contest, so it's likely this is the Darkness Unicron teased for a March release a while back as a Yodobashi Camera store exclusive, only available at the Akihabara (Tokyo) and Umeda (Osaka) branches.

This.

Ow, and this might be great for those who wanted this mold, but without the flaky chrome bits.
BlueAngel_Bolt
This looks nice. Will try and get it, it'll look great with Nemesis Prime.
thielmj
This i actually kinda want.
Shatterpoint
Aren't Darkness Unicron and Nightmare Unicron supposed to be two different figues?

One being a store exclusive and the other being an Arms Up prize?
Stryker055
I didn't want it until I saw that it was called "Nightmare Unicron."

My mind works in strange ways.

Ah Darkness Unicron.... cuz you know he was kinda nice before...

its not my thing

So... Im guessing that the only way to get this is thru an 'exclusive' AM campaign and not through regular stores, right? Dammit... kind want that badly.. -__-

For the right price, I do love that mold... something about a mountain with a face as an alt mode is just amazing. Got Gaia Unicron for Christmas and it's in my top 5 Prime toys for sure.

I do wish we would refer to it the same way Chrome translates it though. "Nightmare UNIQLO emissions"

Don't own Unicron yet, but it is on my list, but if I grab this one, I am gonna have to get Nemesis and Cialis (whatever it is) Breakdown for a whole dark display. The set would look great with the Vehicons and Terrorcon Bumblebee.

This version I will buy the other one made me limp
RedAlert Rescue
Does this give me an excuse to call Energon Unicron "Nightmare Unicron" as well then ?

I could do with some decent pics of 'Darkest Megatron' too (That's Darkest - the one with the sword- not 'Darkness' the one with the wing backpack).
bumblebeeprime2
BIG tiME PASS! this thing looks llike DEAD UNICRON instead!
sinwithme13
if the price is right i'll be buying him
ironprimereview
ok i didnt really like the original but i am gonna watch this one i still dont like the armor mode tho it is just ................. weird
Sideways77
They really want me to buy this Unicron, huh?
harrismonkey
Hmm. Looks like an improvement over the first one. But given how luke warm I am on the first one, do I really need a second?

Unicron + OP.
Darkness Unicron + NP.

Remained only versions of Unicron in Hikari version and BAPE TFP Convoy!
CodeXCDM
I'd say the new paint scheme seems better than the wannabe G1-styled original... and its scheme will mesh so much better with Nemesis Prime or Darkness Megatron. I still think the combined form is a tad funky (all that kible lying around) but to those that like it... it'd make a nice display I suppose.
guncannon109
Yes, because the first release went so well!
TCJJ
I ended up passing on the original Gaia Unicron, mainly because the only reason I wanted it was for the Micron, and the fact that it looks neat when combined with Unicron's arm, but for those two things alone, the price wasn't justifiable. Whilst I think the chroming looks better here, and indeed, Darkness Unicron has a gorgeous paint job (not forgetting, however, the tendency of TakaraTomy to photoshop Arms Micron figures to oblivion), I still don't feel that it's necessary for me to buy. It's just one mould that I don't really care about, and as far as Prime goes, I've attempted to get most of the moulds, and a lot of my figures are the Arms Micron versions, but this one is not one I'll be buying. It does look nice, though.

Ah ha, I was wondering when pics of this thing would pop up. Looks badass.

I'm assuming "O" means this one will be orange this time around then?

Hopefully it's not too hard to acquire.

I really wanted to get Gaia Unicron, but now I'll hold off on this!!!

Very much so! The only bad thing about this will be adding another expensive preorder to a burgeoning early '13 list of stuff I'm already targeting. Totally worth it though, for me.

I hear ya dude! Sometimes us collectors gotta do what we gotta do. for the love of the hobby!
RedAlert Rescue
I tried regular Unicron on Dark Guard FE Optimus and it fits fine the Nightmare version should really suit the colours too - It may even look better on the FE mould anyway as it's a bit bigger.

But that Unicron always looks far nicer on Weaponizer Prime anyway.

This unicron is pure visual sex.....

If thats metallic silver rather than just plain silver paint then its worth buying. Though in context with how it would fit, i honestly just dont like the idea of it as a figure. Its rather bland in terms of being anything other than a nightmare version of Unicron - considering there is no justification for the colours in any other way other than a warper/twisted version of Unicron... who by definition is warped and twisted anyway >.<
CZ Hazard
Not sure if warming to the mold or if I'm a sucker for black repaints.

Seems to be a lot of shading in that promo pic?

And TT have shown a clear tendency to Photoshop Arms Micon promo images...

...don't be too surprised if it turns out to be a flat grey.
NemiMonkey
Eh I'm usually a sucker for dark repaints, but this just isn't doing anything for me.
Starfire22
Do want.
BraveMax
It bears repeating... This is NOT the exclusive Darkness Unicron we heard about... This is Nightmare Unicron...

People seem confused...
Aeronnz
I'm not into the Prime figures too much, but that is a NICE figure...
TylerMirage
Man, those colours are awesome!
