    I'm not complaining. Just stating that I'd prefer all my "human counterparts" to be roughly the same height. It's too much to ask but it is my preference.

    They feature the Diaclone Reboot figures in all the photos. With Diaclone Drivers. It's not even an argument. It's what PE made them for.

    Well, if it was standing next to another figure in a photo,there can be no argument... ???

    By that logic Terminus Hexatron is meant to be part of Bayverse! After all he stood next to it!

    I'm getting one because it's Biotron and He will stand with my other Micromen and Microladies.

    Not accurate. The 3.75" figure is Microman, and is part of Takara's Diaclone line of figures.

    Robotman was NOT part of the Diaclone line. Biotron was designed in 1975 as part of a line intended to unite the Microman robots with the 1972 Henshin Cyborg line as the Victory Series (which is why it says "VS on his Crotch!"). Diaclone didn't happen until 1980.

    Mego imported Robotman into the US in 1977 as Biotron in the Micronauts line.

    What ever happened to the better sword for Star Saber? I want the better brain master but the sword was more important to me.

    *hears about this just now for some reason*

    so this is basically just that better articulated brain of courage packaged with a 3P Biotron/Robotman that about right?

    Guess this means the plans for die cast Star Saber swords are dead then?

    Hmm, may go for this, I've grown to like IDW Micronauts and Revolution is better than I expected so I wouldnt be buying it just for the BoC, also that price is neat

    I love the idea of this as like a prototype transtector for Saber, but man, how I wish they could have found a way to include the longer sword blade they originally showed.

    I got mine today and I really love it. It's the same super refined quality that we've come to expect from PE. Really not a single issue with molding, paint, joints - nothing. The tiny brainmaster has some mind-bending paint apps in that there are tons of them and they are so crisp for something so tiny.

    Anyway, if you like what you see in photos, get it - you wont be disappointed.
    One quick photo for now.
