A Closer Look at Takara's Transformers Prime Arms Micron AM-01 - AM-06
Man..................... Takara Tomy have completely wrecked the PRID molds sticking those extra pieces of plastic on them.
Those look like ass.
And those stickers...
Dafuq happened, TakTom?
I'm pretty sure that those Mini-Cons would be cheaper to produce than Powerizer weapons.
Pretty sure they're back to aiming toys at kids again, instead of the collector-heavy direction they were targetting prior.
Cheaper toys, extra gimmicks. Sounds about right.
I kind of like Primes blaster. Rest are varying levels of meh. I'd still grab a few if they ever ended up as blindpacks or something.
skywarp and megs are the best, ratchets stickers look terrible.
Agreed that they went a wee bit overboard with the mechtech ports everywhere on the figure. At least the DOTM stuff had spring-loaded port covers to try and hide those gaping holes everywhere; and on figures as small as the DOTM and now the PRiD stuff, they needed it.
That said, some of the figures look pretty cool. Skywarp in particular, looks awesome, especially with his drill/shuriken/goat-thing micron. And the microns are much neater gimmick to me than the poorly executed LED Powerizer stuff. Sadly, they're not neat enough to completely import the entire line (would be way too expensive) but redecoes like Skywarp and Terrorcon CJ might be worth it.
And Megs holding that ginormous micron weapon thing, haha. XD
Yeesh. Not a fan of those ports on those toys. On the other hand, Warpath minicon. Gotta find a way to get that (even if I do already have a RiD Cliffjumper).
