Arms Micron capsule toys

Postby craggy » Sun Apr 01, 2012 3:09 am

So the tfwiki says that the capsule/gashapon style Arms Microns have been released, including the 10-pack boxed set. It also says there are only 4 molds in the line. Sadly there are no further pics than the original grey prototype ones we saw months ago.
I've got 5 of these little guys on pre-order, and am somewhat eager to find out more info. If there are only 4 designs, and they're sold in sets of 10, how does this break down into an assortment?
Assuming there's at least 2 of each, I'd say it's likely the 2 extra spots are filled with a 3rd Bee and Optimus, but are they all the same colours? Guessing these ones come pre-assembled, as I can't see one of those sprues we're seeing packed with the Arms Micron Prime figures fitting inside a wee plastic egg.
Had been hoping for some of the pack-in ones to be in the set, but they look good regardless, and were not expensive, I'd just like more info on what's coming.

(of course, if I'm really lucky, Hasbro will end up releasing the ones packed with the larger Japanese figures somehow, be it a gift-set or individual releases as a separate line, but expect we've a while to hear about that if it happens)
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

I was sure I'd seen that thing before somewhere. Sorta sad it's not a TF thing, but cobra-axe thing looks pretty nice anyway.

Surely enough, it's not TF: the blog's been updated with the true identity of the toy: Gran Axe Silver Version from the Buki-Borg line by Kabaya.
