    Originally found at the Japanese Transformers Image Board

    Seems as though there's another set of Micron Booster toys coming out in Japan. The Micron Booster includes:

    Wideload and Sledge of the Demolition Team (poor Wideload, new paint apps but still no face!)
    Knockdown, Terrorsaur and Swoop of the Dinobots (Terrorsaur has been repainted to resemble Beast Wars Megatron)
    Snarl and Overbite of the Predator Attack Team (Dreadwing was recently released in Japan as a store exclusive)
    Dirt Rocket of the Dirt Digger Team
    Strongarm of the Night Rescue Team

    Additionally, the chase figures are a clear version of Strongarm (pictured) and the display box seems to imply a chase version of Terrorsaur as well.

    Are these random? By that I mean is each labled similarly but contains a different assortment of minicons. That transparent strongarm would be a rare or lucky pull then.

    cool find, and a few of them look improved from colors we had here.:thumb

    Cool new Classics figures to collect. I only wish they were a larger size class.

    Fixing the names:

    Strongarm => Rad Rogue (or Radrogue)
    Terrorsaur => Gnash Teeh (or Gnashteeth)
    Dirt Rocket => Windrazor (I've had legnthy debates about this - the Katakana spelling is the same as the one for G2 Windrazor)
    Swoop => Reptics
    Overbite => Gredator
    Snarl => Apexis (unless someone comes up with a better transliteration)
    Wideload => Refuser (or Refusor)
    Sledge => Rockblade

    Minicons = failure. Hopefully TakTom will release some of the larger figures in random repaint schemes. Those would get my attention.

    I like the look of the majority of them alot. The metallic chase BW megs homage is especially tastey. But I want the store promo Wedge Shape first :)

    Am I the only one who thinks these shouldn't be in any way related to the Classics line? Am I wrong in thinking the Classics toys are supposed to be related/inspired/updated G1 toys?

    These have their place in any line after RID, but don't call them Classics when they don't belong...c'mon, a BW inspired Megatron paint scheme - speaks for itself.

    I'll pass.
