    The mircochange Meterobos have been a grail of mine for years, until i saw this:

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/TRANSFORMERS-MICROMAN-MC-SFERE-ROBOTLEO-FALCO-TAKARA-80_W0QQitemZ290002853703QQihZ019QQcategoryZ753QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

    I actually have the lion and man ones already, but have been hunting for the bird for years with no sucess, but now thanks to Draven pointing this out to me, i've got a complete set of the GiG release versions! plus the two extras, which is useful as some cock wrote prices directly on the boxes of my ones, only tiny but still bloody annoying.

    I'm one happy guy!...

    Sorry buddy! I had to babblefish the damn thing myself to work out what condition they were in!

    Basically, they were part of the MicroChange line, transforming from a sphere into a bird/lion/man respectively. The bird looks very similar to ole Lazerbeak, and the man has a transformation that would actually have been rather similar to BW Neocron considering the bits his arms and legs are made from and the way the shell lies on his back!

    They were re-released with keychain attachments in BW Neo. We actually had a whole thread on them in TF GD about these guys a few months back, i'm going to have to see if i can't dig that up to show pics in when these beauties arrive!...

    Heh. I saw the word "Microchange" and got curious. 15 seconds later I IM'd Jon asking "D00d, are these the ones you've been looking for?"
    Congrats bro. You owe me a beer ;)

    Great Haul, been looking for the man version for sometime only to come up empty handed.

    Now where can I get this? You and I need to talk about how I can get this from you. :)
