    It... is exclusive to Takara.

    And they don't have a place on the show, but in Japan the show is edited slightly so that a short can appear at the end of each episode which is of the Microns.

    Can you use the microns on the US releases? I don't want to have to buy the AM versions just the microns.

    They can hold them in their hands if them have 5mm holes there. Probably not going to be able to mount them any where else unless they have a 5mm hole. The TakaraTomy Prime figures (not the FE ones) have extra 5mm ports / holes for the Microns.

    Yeah, the Microns all have standard 5mm posts, so any figure that has the ports or shaped hands that size should be able to wield them. Some are still exclusive to their Takara TF, but most of the designs will be available on their own from import shops. The extra ports on the Takara figures are probably unnecessary, to be honest.
