Default AM16 Jet Vehicon picture gallery

Now that the modified Vehicon toy has been released in Japan (and is being speculated as being another Prime toy not being released by Hasbro), a gallery of photos has been posted up here.
The Micron is called Igu, and is supposed to be an Iguana.


A flying car, how droll...

Not such a fan of the robot colours (needs some silver or something to break up all that pink) but that alt mode is a joy to behold. Hoping for a Hasbro release!

The Micron is an Iguana and a clever reuse of the micron that comes with the car vehicon (which was a boar), although slightly modified.

I think it looks very nice. Even the ports don't ruin it.

The rumour is that Jet Vehicon will be Takara only. This is based on the Copyright stamp only not having a Hasbro stamp on it, as was with Breakdown.

As we now know, there is difficulty bring Breakdown to US market, so in a similar vein there could be issues bring Jet Vehicon to the non Japanese market.

This is just my own theory now, but I think part of the issue would be that the Jet Vehicon is slightly larger than Hasbro's standard deluxe but smaller than a Voyager, so wouldn't adequately fit in either price bracket and hence is impractical to sell over here.
