So the Autobot Micron set includes the components for the "Star Saber" and 2 more:

O.P. (Red)
B.2 (Red)
R.A. (Orange)
{Wheeljack's Micron} (Green)
Iro {Ironhide's Micron} (Magenta)

which, when combined with the individual releases of C.L. GR (Cliffjumper's Micron), B.H. B (Bulkhead's Micron) and Arc S (Arcee's Micron); means that only Sou (Swerve's Micron) won't be available individually as far as Autobot Microns go!

Meanwhile, the Decepticon pack has the components for the "Planet Bowgun" plus 2:

Gora II (Green)
Zori (Silver, possibly identical to {AMW-10 Zori M})
Gul (Purple)
Noji (Green?)
Ida (Purple?)

so, with the individual releases of Balo G (Skywarp) and Jida R (Terrorcon Cliffjumper), the only Decepticon microns that won't be sold individually will be Gora, (Megatron), Zamu (Breakdown), Gra (Knock Out), Hades (Megatron Darkness), Igu (Jet Vehicon) and TECHNICALLY Bogu (Gaia Unicron)

Plus, and it's a little hard to tell, these microns retain the same color crystals as their original variants! So the gimmicky combinatins still work!

So, again, all that's missing from individual release is:

Sou
Gora
Zamu
Gra
Hades
Igu
Bogu

hopefully the AMW line continues after this!

this is pretty cool. already been getting the AMWs so the chance to get the other Microns I've missed out on in not getting the larger figures is great.
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.

Along with the Rainbow Shield, this is getting silly. 5-Part Combo Weapons?

And are you sure it's Gora II, and not the regular Gora? Gora is due for a redeco, not counting the Shadow one. I want one!

Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) RiD Grimlock, Hightower and Wedge (Heavy Load acquired)
3) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
4) Arms Micron Terrorcon Bumblebee
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

The resident Rewind... well, half of one :lol:

Leave me alone! I don't want to buy these poor excuses for Microns. Stop producing these awesome sets!

Yeah, I'm 99% sure it's Gora II. Each set comes with one "Super Combo Weapon" formed by 3 of the microns and 2 other microns. The Autobot set has O.P., B.2, and R.A. forming the "Star Saber". Meanwhile, the Decepticon pack has the "Planet Bowgun" super combo weapon, which consists of Gul, Zori, and Gora II. Gora II and the original Gora are different sizes and have different colored crystals (Crystal color determine whether something is a normal combo weaon or a super one: all 3 crystals must be the same color for a super combo weapon). Only Gora II can form part of the Planet Bowgun.

Huh, never realised Set B had a Super Combo Weapon as well. Both added to the list, my RiD figures need companions.
