Weapon: Gattling Gun
Images from the latest issue of Figure Oh! magazine have started to make their way around the internet. We already got a look at the most interesting bits last night, the new prototype images of Masterpiece Star Saber. The rest are figures we've seen before with the exception of a new retail campaign Astrotrain Micron. He's a translucent redeco of the Payload Mini-Con packed with Generations Legends Cosmos. He can be obtained by sending 3000 Yen on Transformers: Lost Age products at Toys"R"Us Japan locations in August.

Because why would anybody want a Transformer that transforms? 8-}

"But it's 2 feet tall!"

So is Metroplex, and he transforms.

"But this is detailed and articulated!"

So are Masterpiece figures, and they transform.

What's with the picture of Lio Convoy? Is he/one of his figures getting a re-release or something?

That little Astrotrain looks good but if it comes over to the US through BBTS it'll probably go for $20 and it ain't worth that!

And this why we hardcore fans of G1 rely so heavily on 3rd Party companies.

Dammit, now I want a minicon Astrotrain. That mold works surprisingly well for him. Get on it Hasbro, along with a Slipstream from the Windblade mold. If someone buys this guy, they have to powerlinx it with the club Astrotrain.

But it's the Targetmaster Payload mold that comes with Generations Cosmos. Those molds aren't Mini-Con molds and can't Powerlinx. The only reason it's labeled as a "Micron" here is because TakaraTomy likes to use that as a catch-all term for tiny Transformers figures that interact with bigger figures.

Even the Nightstick mold that came with Universe Cyclonus has been sold as a "Micron" despite it not being a Mini-Con mold.
