    Ha! weapon mode "now printing". I think thats supposed to be a dragonfly. Name is Dobo, maybe some kind of play on Tonbo.

    Good catch, now that you've said that I can't unsee BW Jetstorm, aka Tonbotto, in that design.

    Dobo turns into a machine gun according to the description. Also Ratchet is a spanner, WJ is Kunai (ninja weapon). Satrscream is indeed a boomerang.

    This series is the best so far!

    Excellent, I'll update the frontpage text. These will look good with their respective partners no doubt :)

    Wow. A boomerang. Their kind of reaching for weapon ideas. But it is a starscream. So everyone is going to want one anyway for a Starscream shrine.

    I kind of like the wheeljack weapon and the dragonfly should be another cool decepticon animal weapon for the course.

    preorders. preorders. got to find those out there.

    I actually really like the Boomerang idea. It is a new idea, and only something Japan can pull off. You know Hasbro would never release something like that on thier own. Lots of great Microns out there again. I for one am very happy about them!

    Question: Can someone tell me what the Turtle from Wave 2 is supposed to turn into? Is it a Sheld?

    sigh, another case preorder as soon as it shows up. it's almost like they're tempting me to get the AM version of these characters just so i have them use their own mini-mes as weapons.

    Yes, the turtle is a shield of some sort.

    Got the solicitation for these today, I'll have them listed sometime this week. The assortment is five pieces, so just like all the previous animal microns, the dragonfly one is going to come in two colors.

    Arms microns rule. RECURSIVE arms microns rule harder.

    November, I believe. Should coincide nicely with the last known wave of Japanese Prime toys.
