    I'm not sure if the pics mean these will be released in clear plastic (that's what I'm guessing?) but cool either way!

    To many things to save for. It's hard to decide on what I should buy first

    These are up at BBTS for $35 for both sets. I have them pre-ordered, but I really hope Sidecutter gets these for less.

    Tempted. Since picking up a shining OP recently though & seeing how brittle the translucent PVC is, its likely a pass.

    Soundwave would be neat if he unfolded like a hinge to make a tenticle or he could simply turn into his sonic cannon from the show.

    There's a few more i'd like to see such as Breakdown, Airachnid, Knockout, even an Insecticon and Vehicon.

    I've actually quite pleased about these not only will they really complement the Dark Energon line they also complement existing clear Microns and they really fill some gaps if you are trying to add microns to existing toys.

    So Clear Bee-Blade would look fine with Dark Energon Bee but it would also got a real treat with Hotshot.


    Perhaps there is an argument to be made that the best colours to make them in is the same colours as original but translucent - I really love that transparent silver-grey the scorpion has been made in in the new 5 packs for example. and having the Bee-Blade that is the same colour as the Clear B2 would have been nice.

    But there's some good matches anyway Wheeljack is going to suit (slicer) Wheeljack super well.
    The paler Arcee is going to allow you to use the darker ones with a different shade of Arcee and have weapons that complement each more distinctively.

    Mini-Optimus will look OK with the clear FE Optimus or the Dark Energon Optimus.

    BUT Ratchet has no obvious use so long as his toy has no repaint, and The blue Bulkfist may look fun if place in the wrong place like on Breakdown (they fit better on Breakdown than they do on Bulk anyway) so they might be nice with Silas Breakdown. They'd look a bit odd on Bulk - but they might work with Swerve I suppose there's already a blue wrecking ball with no obvious home too so I'd suggest to Hasbro they need to make they blue-grey Bulkhead cyberverse colour scheme on the Voyager Bulkhead toy so all these Blue accessories Takara keep making have some kind of use... if they do make a Voyager Beast Hunters Bulkhead that is going to be Roadbuster colours and that wouldn't suit the blue either.

    So I suppose the use for them is on "Anything but Bulkhead" like Weaponizer Prime for example.
    But Ratchet is the only one i'm really strugling to see a use for unless it's a key that allows for weapon combination modes from them ?

    Or maybe you can combine it with the Ra Micron in some way.

    Autobot microns get a MX in their names and Decepticon ones get a TC. MX for Matrix, since they are powered up by the Matrix. TC should be for Terrorcon, since they are powered by Dark Energon.

    As for the colors, the Japanese words says "Design is under modification" so they may be be what is shown here.

    AS for the Decepticon ones...

    The Purple Starscream saves me having to buy extra Starscreams' to paint Black I guess as the clear Purple will also suit Skywarp too (Love to see a Voyager Skywarp sometime). It might even look ok with Generations FOC Skywarp.

    Megatron may look OK with Dark Energon Megatron.. it's just a shame that the design has no real ideal spot on most Megatron toys - but it may be feasible to stack them on the side of existing micron as extra weapons or boosters derived from the engine section. otherwise it may only come into it's own for me if there's a future repaint of the Deluxe scale megatron who I feel looks better with that Micron than the Voyager does anyway. I think the Micron megs is something to hang onto for the future and hope that some other Megatron that still has lots of 5mm holes will suit it.

    I suppose the Gecko does look a little like a saw so it might look OK with Dark Energon Knockout.

    That Purple Dragonfly looks a little like Transquito now.. I'm not sure what is in need of a giant Purple Machine gun... perhaps the new Vehicon General toy ?

    The Purple Turtle shield will look very nice on Darkest Megatron's or dark Energon Megaton's arm as it does bare a slight shape similarity to his "Prime arm". It might also go quite well with older toys like say an Energon Scout which it would be more in scale with.

    The snake has no obvious use to me so I suppose i'd have to look on it as gun shaped decoration or part of a weapon combination mode. but it does look a bit like a tuning fork so perhaps it might suit Soundwave or a vehicon even. or even Airachnid.

    Perhaps they could do the sword and the shield Micron kits in those colours too ?
    (though I suspect that the top part of the shield would snap in half if you transformed it more than once if it was made of normal brittle clear plastic).

    But anyway overall they seem well suited fro use with the later half of the Micron Arms Line and especially suited to complement the Dark Energon Line. But there seems other uses too - like Weaponizer Prime +Unicron Armour + Blue Bulkfists would look quite spiffy.

    Great looking sets. I think I prefer the uniform look :)

    I always thought he was supposed to go with Dreadwing or are the colors that much different on the final product. Haven't really seen any final product pics.

    Either way holy crap in a hat I want those microns. Time to start saving for the set. :D

    I'm excited for the Bulkhead Power Fist.

    I liked the idea of the original, but with that color, it looked pretty awful for everyone but Bulkhead. With it being clear blue, I can imagine it's an Energon weapon and it matches most Autobots, and quite a few Decepticons.

    Ditto for Turtleshield. I love the little guy, but the colors clash with most figures.

    I really love the fact that we got a Bulkhead toy that turns into a fist.

    The very existence of that thing is beautiful.
