    For a pre-order price of 80 USD, do you guys think it's worth it? I already preordered mine.

    Woopee, another exclusive accessory that's cool on a bad toy.

    Interesting, yet not entirely impressive; certainly not for the price. I'd like to see that Matrix Micron in color, though.

    Ah, thanks for the confirmation! I had mixed feelings on that mold, but I collect microns so I guess I'll stick with this preorder and just pass on the US release.

    I wonder if we'll get a similar "Arms Master Bumblebee" release using that Weaponizer mold later on in the Arms Micron line too.

    I wonder if the Matrix one is compatible with other mould. I don't think that fits to AM Optimus...(gah too many Optimus Priem toys!!!)

    Such an exciting time for minicon collectors, isn't it?
    :rip  to your wallet ;) 
    I want the Matrix one, too

    I hear ya, syd! Yeah, me too.. looks like this are much bigger AM's to fit the new leader class mould. :( 
    Oh dear, the number of AM's for Prime toys are really getting to be out of hand, right? :lol

    It is! It's been crazy already and I imagine it'll just get crazier and more expensive as time goes on and more and more releases come out (particularly with exclusives). That said, I've been enjoying these new micron kits so far, so I can't complain really.

    This has been my first time almost exclusively preordering a Japanese line over its US counterpart (Classics releases bounced back and forth, and I ended up with one of each in some cases) just for the microns. I don't anticipate getting a "breather" for a good while.

    I can only see 2 Mini-cons, not 5. So where are the other 3?

    The weaponizer Prime isn't turrible, faults but cool in its own right so this could be ok. Now weaponizer Bee looks really bad.

    So, if this is the Weaponizer, then it would have the flip out guns on those grey parts in the truck mode. So now I wonder if they gutted the gimmick out and replaced it with normal parts for the japanese release.
