    Just for statistical purposes, do you hate minicons/microns?

    About $30 too much, before shipping. Micron Booster v1 is hard to find. Go get that first, and save yourself from eternal annoyance.

    That's about 5 bucks per figure including the non-minicon so if that's worth it to you then go for it!

    $150 for a bunch of minicons? Insane.

    No, I don't hate minicons, I just think it's nuts to want them that bad.

    So even before I decided, I had been looking around and I don't see anywhere that's selling the sets for less than $5/figure. If someone has and I just haven't seen it, please, let me know, because as far as I'm concerned this isn't too bad of a price - maybe the Super Grap's not so great (I base him @ $15 solo) and everything else comes up @ exactly $5 each. Other than the fact that this makes the Adventure team pretty expensive, I'm ok with it. That would only account for maybe $8 of it. Grap maybe an extra $5. Everyone else, shrug. So if anyone's seen the sets cheaper, please point it out and I will turn myself into the proverbial arse.

    A sealed box of wave 2 micron boosters cost $12 before fees on Yahoo! Japan right now. Don't listen to the people telling you $5 is too much for a minicon. These are collectibles, after all. They have collectible value, not practical value.

    I like minicons, but dang that's pricey. Chop 50 bucks off of the total, and it might be worth it.

    Well said there Nightscream. I love Mini-Cons/Microns...I just over paid on a Micron Densetsu DVD w/ exclusive Micon ($65 shipped) so it's your call. Wave 1 is hard to find, but if you've got a chance to get a lot of those you want in one buy...I say go for it.

    No. I'm actually a big fan. The problem is...

    Micron Booster Wave 3 set of 11 (does not include chase piece)
    Micron Booster Wave 2 set of 12 (includes chase)
    An extra Pincher (Hoist/Longrack/Super Grap's minicon)
    MS-07 Super Grap w/ MM-16 (Adventure Team)

    MS-07 Super Grap is... super not so good.

    Refute's only change is slightly shinier wheels, and the colours are nicer on the US Hoist. You didn't specify if you were getting an extra Refute or Spark Lift.

    A set of MB Wave 3 can be had for $50 without Bug General, $75 with; Wave 2 can be bought by the case on eBay for $40 + s/h. Wave 2 cases guarantee everyone but Saber, but he's fairly evenly packed anyway.

    The Adventure Team packed in MS-07 is unchanged from the US one.
