    The Skyglide Micron looks great! Can't wait to add that one to the collection.

    Agreed, I'd almost be willing to add minicons to my collection for that guy alone.

    On a side note, I was looking at the JP MP Starscream, and realized exactly how blue that guy is. I'm thinking just a touch of white on the red shoulder bits would be enough to "Thundercracker-ize" him if they don't get around to a proper TC...

    Henkei = Classics in Japan, but Henkei really means "transform."
    Might have to check out that manga serial in TV Magazine.

    Thank God.. When I first looked at this thread, I thought it said HENTAI... *whew*

    So Skyglide is supposed to be part of JNP Classics? How does one get him?

    Well, you have to be one of the first 10 people to buy Henkei product on the 13th of the month, when this line is released - at ToysRus.

    Pending that - yahoo.jp auctions and maybe eventually eBay. If I can manage to snag a second one (I'm really just gunning for one at this point), I'll probably be selling one, too.

    Again these look pretty cool, but why only released in another country, why not spread the love?

    I noticed they don't use the words "Null Ray(ナルビーム)", "Fusion Cannon(融合カノン砲)", or "Electro-Disruptor(エレクトロディスラプター)" in the contents. is it too difficult for younger children maybe?

    Neat, I guess. I doubt that Takara-Tomy is in a position to do this, but it would be really neat if they could expand this "HENKEI!" series to include some new molds of their own, in addition to just repainting Hasbro's Classics figures. It would also be a cool way to see Classics style renditions of some of the Japanese-only characters from G1 (Star Sabre and Deszarus come to mind...) which Hasbro would likely never produce on there own.

    Anyone have any idea on how much Skyglide there might end up fetching in auctions? I've never really pursued rare minicons before, so I'm not sure exactly how expensive they can run. I remember reading that Dragoyell (was that his name?) got up into the multiple hundreds, is that right?

    Thanks!

    Can't read a lick of Japanese. Anybody who can want to be nice and post the profiles for these guys somewhere in this thread?

    Ok, now I feels like a cow being "milked" :( 

    TakaTom can make it up by giving us "Games Of Deception?"
