    Much better than Hasbro's. If I were to pick up the Minicons I'd definitely get this ver.

    I am assuming the Microns will have their weapons...

    Still, this is a pretty bad figure. Smells like a clearance wait.

    That part isnt confirmed. It may be that instead of giving clear weapons and one micron, they have 2 microns. Also, it hasnt been confirmed that Takara is doing the other microns and doing the whole clear plastic weapons thing. Already, it wouldnt work since the deal with hasbro was that the 3 of each wave would make a bonus figure. The minicon that came with drift wasnt needed to make the figure, which worked out. Here, you have one minicon from wave 1 and the one that came with drift.

    I really think takara is taking this micron thing completely differently from Hasbro and this is testament to that.

    I much prefer the little guys from the TakTom sets over the Hasbro versions. Sadly I have no interest in buying the whole set JUST for the little dudes.


    Ah well.

    The Easy Dynamic toy for September 19th, TED12 Thunderhoof (1-step), is also listed, with images... showing its different paint apps to the Hasbro version.

    So why does Drift come with the two from the show, but fracture comes with Sandsting?

    Semi-related (sorry if too off-topic)...

    For anyone expecting the Micron Shooter (Deployer) Fracture being shipped to you this week, it looks like it has been pushed back to September (19th) with Drift, as it was originally meant for this month (August 29th). Amazon Japan, HLJ and TRU Japan have the new release date.... and probably other online sources as well.

    Fracture might not be a great toy, but the purple Sandsting that comes with it might end up being a Japanese exclusive... for any collectors of the Minicons.

    Eh. I don't much care for fancy paint on gimmick toys.

    Yeah that's definitely quite strange of Takara.
