    Received Micron set... missing the large cannon... I'm seeing there's been a lot of issues with this set.

    Saw someone else posted missing tires, I think it was here or in a FB group about broken joints. Plastic does feel frail. I'm afraid to transform any. I'm getting a replacement from Amazon, but unsure how it will turn out.

    primevprime in his review of the micron set, his Decepticon Runner had issues with a deformed arm slot and the toy arms couldn’t be properly snapped in tightly. An issue he laminated about a couple times in his review.
    I had no issues with my Decepticon Runner and the arms snapped in on the sides tightly and snuggly.

    Ugh. I'm not sure I'm too happy about receiving this set, now. Part of me wants to cancel, because it's $60.00, and if things are missing or fragile... I'm just so tired and burnt out on this garbage.

    $60? Are you talking about the Botropolis set? They're discussing the Micron set.

    That's not the Botropolis set with the reuse of Doubledealer's missile?

    I assumed they must be referring to the cannon on the top of the Micromaster combiner team vehicle, since they said it was the Micron set. Maybe @Omegax80 can clarify.

    Outside of the new deco for the Micron set, they're not any different than the base counterparts. The micro masters are just tiny and not sturdy.

    Oooh! I forgot about that cannon. I gotcha. Now, it makes sense.

    As far as I can tell, my set was complete with nothing missing, and the plastic seemed up to snuff. If anything, they hold together better than the mass retail version of the same figures. Honestly, I was expecting the repaints to be worse and I was pleasantly surprised when they weren't. Still shocked...

    Saw that while on hunt today.
    Put order in quickly.
    Hopefully date will be moved up like the grimlock's were today.
    Maybe it will spring up in store before then.

    I got my Micron set earlier this week, and haven't had any problems with it, no missing paint, no missing parts. In fact, the sports car and race car bots hold together better in vehicle mode that their mass-release counterparts. The mass-release sports car bot kept leaving a gap between the roof and foot/back section of the car.

    Looking forward to the Botropolis set, my second most wanted GO set after the Paradron medics set with Ratchet. Need someone to keep Commander Modesty (Sky Lynx) in his place.

    The box my Grimlock came in said "This box was made to fit your order." Kind of dope.

    Yep, the long cannon for the micromaster combiner duo in the Micron Micromaster set.

    Ouch, that's a major blunder.
