    Makes me wonder if we'll get some animated movies that takes place in the movie universe.

    That sounds interesting. Here's hoping some good works, TF-related or otherwise, come from this partnership.

    I was into the microman reissues and the new lines. Then microman didn't survive the tomy merger. Palisades tried to get micronauts going again but had terrible luck with manufacturing and the toys where insanely fragile. Now it's over a decade later. I hope they really bring the line back this time. If it results in some updated classics, maybe some sturdier six inch versions that would be great.

    Don't let the name fool you, it's actually a toy manufacturer.... the biggest in China to be exact.

    It mostly co-ops with animation studios to produce shows, much like Hasbro nowadays.

    So why does the name have "animation" and "culture"? It gets to do with some polices and lousy translations........

    Using the buck for other properties doesn't interest me. I liked acroyer and all the future/ancient design that came with proper microman releases. I agree that the Bay can glaze over the sensibilities of existing stories. I just finally watched AOE because the 3 disk went on clearance at target. There wasn't much lore to go with micronauts. The marvel comics never clicked for me, I don"t care about the shows I just hope they result in some good figures.

    Yeah and plus that its anime I dont like anyways (if they did fate/zero or puella magica madoka charaters than i would get some). Yeah microman always did have some bizzare but yet awesome designs. Also if they do they better do it as a kid toy again the stupid adult collectable thing didnt work out to well beside those awesome reissues of the vintage figures. Wish they reissued the amazon acroyear but oh well. Yeah don't get me started with bay and I liked the marvel comics but I wish if they did a movie I wish they would follow the 70's manga from what I hear its pretty good. Im trying to look for english translations of it.

    Ah this has been made public at last, awesome.

    For the record whilst AGE created Micronauts they sold the IP to Hasbro Inc a few years back to develop the brand including the planned JJ Abrams film which was put on hold due to his involvement with Star Trek and now Star Wars.

    Bay usually equals bad films however considering how well the films do in China this is an excellent business decision on his part.
