    Sooo... Unicron and Megatron are "Weaponizer" Class? Maybe?

    I really hope Hasbro has some good info to share with everyone regarding all of these new mystery TF's at Botcon.

    I speculated about a Weaponizer/leader class Unicron! Hope he looks like his rock self :lol  :D 

    & Darkness Megatron is most likely a Weaponizer Megatron with a little more Dark energon. Thats what I think, b/c ya know, "Darkness Rising". Kinda obvious if you ask me.

    Either way, I cant wait for the US releases. I dont give a CRAP what they look like, im getting them! WHOO!

    I'd like to see a TF: P Unicron make it here as well!

    Also, Hasbro REALLY need to do something here totally cool with those Arms Microns. BADLY.

    I'm looking forward to these but I'm kind of worried about Unicron. 5000 yen says he'll probably be a leader figure, which is fine, but what will he transform into? I know, people have already mentioned both of these, but it's worth reiterating. Also, Breakdown is Swerve? Is Swerve the name for Breakdown in Japan? I thought they were using all the English names now, and not changing them. Else maybe they're doing the whole Skyquake/Dreadwing thing all over again..... Oh, but it does say Autobot Swerve in Japanese, so..... who knows?

    Actually, going back to price, Robot Kingdom has stock images of Powerizer Optimus and RID Bumblebee. Darkness Megatron and Unicron both have the same price (US$51.90) and both have the stock Powerizer Optimus image, so I think it's more likely that they'll be Voyagers. You've got to remember that Japanese Transformers have TRADITIONALLY been more expensive, even if they supposedly aren't this time around. So assuming Unicron is a Leader Class, that'd mean Darkness Megatron is also a new mould in the Leader Class. Although, it IS interesting that Swerve/Breakdown/whatever has a slightly lower price than both Megatron and Unicron.

    The Jet Vehicon should be interesting to see, and Ironhide... it's about time we heard he was coming out. They both appear to be Deluxes, using the stock blacked-out RID Bumblebee picture.

    They could have all of them attach to his rings! Oh.. wait...

    It's the Autobot repaint of the mold :)  Hence the "Autobot" Prefix ;)

    5000 yen is not Leader Class in Japan. Leader Class is about 7000 yen. 5000 yen is only slightly more expensive than a normal Voyager (4000 yen or so).

    Few problems. Arms Micron voyagers are 4000 Yen. These new listings are 5000. And the place holder images for EVERY AM deluxe is Bumble Bee.

    I was in Japan two weeks ago. PRID voyager class figs were going for about 3300 yen. The only voyagers over 4000 yen were FE Bulkhead (4400) and FE Optimus (7000+). And obviously those are limited availability, which accounts for the inflated price.

    So I'm guessing these 5000 yen figs are something more than voyagers.

    i'm sold at giant rock lord...

    but seriously, i'm curious to see how it'll look... maybe he shows up later again in the show, with a new alt mode?

    yeah, i would love to see them released in 2 or 3 packs, like Armada... but i dunno if that'll happen.
