So Rumble is red, Frenzy is blue. So the stores were right. OK, what's the story behind the two? The two having the same Micron, color and all, seems to indicate they're one and the same.

And the 5-packs have names now: Advanced Star Saber and Gravity Planet Bowgun.

Them haviong the same Micron might be so there isn't an extra one in completing the Super Combo Weapon trios since their Micron has the last "Mystic" Energon Crystal. If one was different, he'd be the odd one out in the combination trios. So they went with a little redundancy to round them off completely. ;)

Speaking of which, Wildrider's Micron finally completely the Super Weapon for the Mud type, with Balo and Gra. Took them long enough.

The 5-packs will be released later this month into January. They should be available anywhere where TF's are sold.

Yeah I look all the time in Toys r us and other places here in Japan and its super rare that I find them. Its frustrating to be living here and cant find them for my boy

So this will be a 5 pack? and not those capsule toy/machines ? maybe if they are boxed they will actually show up on the shelves ?

O you bet. The 5-packs will come boxed, akin to the regular Deluxe-sized releases, they are in fact slightly cheaper, 1,890 Yen.

the regular ones are only about 200 yen though ? so a 5 pack should only cost 1000 yen ? 1890 is double the price ?

Or am I mistaken on something

good to know they will come box, maybe that will make a big difference in finding them

The Gachapon ones are 200 Yen, but the AMW series singles are 399 Yen. Those include the Micron repaints and the Sword and Shield trios. 5 x 399 = 1995 Yen, so it's 105 Yen cheaper. ;)

I should warn you that they're basically model kits, but everything is snap-on, like a candy toy :)

Its a good thing i'm not collecting microns. I would be pulling my hair out trying to get them all. Frenzy and Rumble just dont look right with one weapon. They need both pile drivers. :MAXIMAL:

Good thing they both come with the same one so you can give one both to use if you get both. ;)
