Thanks to a friend of mine, I finally got my Platinum Factor Micron from Yahoo! Japan Auctions. It was still kind of hard to burn $25 on one single Micron/Mini-Con even though I dig helicopters. I still believe this is one of the best (if not THE best) Micron/Mini-Con released thus far. After I bought the regular GF Micron Team release, I knew I had to have all of the various redecos of this mold. Platinum Factor stands in robot mode on my computer's CPU staring at me as I type. It was hard to tell from the small auction photos that the main body was cast of translucent clear plastic. I also didn't notice until I opened him up this morning that his head and the lower portion of his legs and feet were also cast in translucent plastic, this time yellow. Combined w/ the light brown plastic used for the thighs, arms and helicopter rotors (tail & blades) and the gold paint apps around the head dome make for a great looking redeco. I highly recommend this toy if you can find it for a decent price. Total, I spent $25 and now that I have him he's worth every penny. Hopefully the prices will continue to fall a bit on the other 2 Platinum Microns so I can complete my set.
