    Jetstorm was one of my absolute favorite Beast Wars Predacons. A great mold. Dobo has to be a homage.

    I wonder if it's even possible for Dobo in gun mode to be held by Jetstorm or Tonbot ?

    If you bought four of them you could also make an entirely green one and an all red one as well with a bit of parts swapping.

    Really liking the look of these guys. Starscream's head looks a little funny but the rest look cool. I really want that Ratchet spanner.

    Anyone know when these are going to be released? I heard it was November but now i'm thinking they might have been pushed back to next year.

    Can't wait to see someone make a gestalt mode out of all six of the Team Prime microns.

    These ARE out now. I bought these for my son last week. The Dragonfly is by far the best one, IMHO! My son hated it at first, but after realizing it turned into a Gatling gun, he was quite excited and happy he got three of them. Starscream isn't bad either.

    These things just bother me like when Transformers G1 was coming to an end or at least dying and they started in with those awful Micromasters sets. These remind me of those and I kinda don't care for them really.

    Exited to have the main characters coupled with their own Micron mini-mes! There like little fanbots of their aligned characters.

    I use them as transectors... Say Bumblebee needs to get somewhere small.. Off pops his blades into a little version of himself with a portion of his personality linked to the original.

    I don't think so since he doesn't have hands unless you can get them to fit in the large holes on the insect head. God now that you mention it, I want a mini me for my Tonbot. So much for passing on this in favor of the special set. :redface2:

    That's.....actually a good idea. Takara should totally use that for the backstory of these dudes.

    Im fine with them as separate characters just need to think of a backstory that works.
