    Sorry if this was posted elsewhere but I hadn't seen it yet so I figured I'd update the thread real quick.

    BBTS has now added pics to the individual micron listings (actual pics, not silhouettes) and it appears that some of the partner microns will be "redecoed" as individual releases (Skywarp's micron, Cliffjumper's, Soundwave's, etc.) plus some others that are either future micron partners that have yet to be released or brand new molds just for these releases.

    AMW01 Arms Micron A - Transformers Prime Japanese Figures
    AMW02 Arms Micron B - Transformers Prime Japanese Figures
    AMW03 Arms Micron C - Transformers Prime Japanese Figures (is this a Gashopon redeco?)
    AMW04 Arms Micron Shell 2 - Transformers Prime Japanese Figures (an olive greenish Cliffjumper micron)
    AMW05 Arms Micron Baro 2 - Transformers Prime Japanese Figures (gold Skywarp micron)
    AMW06 Arms Micron Jiro 2 - Transformers Prime Japanese Figures (orangey red Terrorcon Cliffjumper micron)
    AMW07 Arms Micron D - Transformers Prime Japanese Figures
    AMW08 Arms Micron E - Transformers Prime Japanese Figures
    AMW09 Arms Micron F - Transformers Prime Japanese Figures
    AMW10 Arms Micron G - Transformers Prime Japanese Figures (Soundwave's micron, doesn't look quite different)

    At this point only the "H" and "I" micron releases don't have pics.

    EDIT: Nevermind, I see the pics were referenced in the thread for the recent Arms Micron videos.

    Maybe AMW11 judging by the order of the pictures seen so far. But that's just speculation on my part.

    I think Darkness Megatron's micron is a retool/remold since the blades are gone. Also owning the the AM-05 release I can tell you that without putting the gun together differently in a fan configuration, the default Baro Micron is too small for Voyager Megatron. You have to assemble it differently ala Peaugh's video.

    SWEET MERCY!

    Quick question. The red guy, 7th one down, he has his own individual Blade mode, but combines into a sort of Skyboom Shield?

    We still need pics of Micron H & I.

    In looking at their names and just googling them I found:
    Autobots have Microns named with French words...
    Bumblebee -> Beats? (Bitsu)
    Prime -> Opie
    Ratchet -> Allouez (French for "grant" or 'to allow')
    Cliff -> Ciel (French for "Blue, sky, or Oh heavens!")

    And Decepticons have ones with Spanish words...
    Megatron -> Gola (Spanish for "Throat, gullet, or small gorge")
    Skywarp -> Varo (Spanish for "Launch, or Set afloat")

    I've noticed the Japanese like to use foreign words sometimes for certain things.

    I think a FAN Petition needs to be started to tell Hasbro to start selling these in the states...damn this is such a marketing and development loss. How hard is it to wrap your head around the simple fact that if you make something for one very small market that it would be more cost effective to expand it to supper large market, like the US. Importers are making a grip on this crap when shouldn't be. Oh well...I guess boycotting an entire line will save me some serious cash lollolololol. More money for Fall of Cybertron toys (God willing that Hasbro does not fuck that up like they did with Special Edition Prime toys)

    Hasbro seems to be strongly pushing the powerizer gimmick so I doubt we'd see these guys in the US. Maybe as a store exclusive.

    I don't see Hasbro selling them (or anything) for cheaper than $4. It really doesn't seem too expensive to get the ones you might be interested in by just ordering the Takara releases. $8 isn't horrible to import.

    And most of the ones shown so far don't really look like anything, so I'm not sure how well they'd sell at retail. Would kids really be interested in these characters they've never seen, with forms that mostly only vaguely resemble anything?

    Robotkingdom has them at $4 plus shipping. But I'm going with BBTS for the POL feature.

    Since they have to ship overseas, I wonder how their combined price will compare to BBTS's $8 + domestic shipping.
