    Assuming that Hasbro repackaged Takara Prime Microns in old-school three packs - would you buy the hell out of them?

    Even if they weren't in convenient three-packs, would you still collect them alongside your Hasbro RID collection? (or on their own if your not collecting the Prime line?)

    not saying it going to happen, but pretty sure there are going to be overwhelming "yes" answers to this poll, maybe someone at Hasbro might notice this little thread one day and....

    ;)

    Sorry, but no. I'd rather have solid weapons.

    I love Targetmasters (and Minicons and smaller TFs in general) and these look pretty killer. I really want them.

    Probably.

    The use of stickers over and above paint is bugging me, so i'm probably going RID most of the way.

    Maybe?

    Some look ok, but I am pretty sure that they would cost waaaayyyy too much for me to get them.

    So, I'd look to see what they cost but am thinking prolly not. Not really an option for that in the poll.

    My dream is for Hasbro to bring over these Minicons. They may not be show characters BUT they do transform into the actual weapons from the show...and they are minicons. Minicons rock.

    I may even by two of each because most bots have the same weapon on both hands.

    I'd like to see them do the blind bags like they do the MLP figures. Though I'd want them to be painted...

    Sure. Blind bags are popular now.
    But mainly the arms microns do make the mainline prime toys look radically more interesting. And all of the microns combine even the decepticon ones to form a drill.

    So there seems to be a designed collect them all gimmick in just the microns themselves.

    I'd pay between $2.99 to $6 for one. Unassembled in the bag.

    The Prime Shockwave gun and the Megatron Lugnut Cannon, absolutely. Ratchets sword and Cliffjumpers gun have some interest. The rest, highly unlikely.

    Hell yeah, these Microns look amazing. Far better at being both a functioning weapon and a little dude than the PCC Minicons.

    I'd like to be able to buy them without full-sized figures; the cool ones always end up with the lamest figures. I wouldn't mind blind-packaged little guys, especially if there were color variants (*recalls the Crazy Bones that still litter 5 Below*).
    I've been wanting weapon packs of some sort since 3mm/5mm/C-clips became standard; while these alone aren't quite my "ideal" pack (a mix of clip-ons and peg-ins), they are a step in the right direction.
