Ah Ok, not knowing who Stylor was I assumed the red gray guy in the front was Frenzy.
You ever watched/read any stories featuring the old G1 Headmasters (actually as Headmasters, that is)?
Yes I did, have it on DVD in fact. But matter of the fact is, they and their headmasters where such minor and forgettable characters that showed up for a whooping 3 episodes isn't actually enough for me to care enough for them to actually remember their names.
Anything besides "The Rebirth"?

This sweetens the pot considerably, as each micron is worth approximately $8.
I'm betting they require assembly, like their Japanese counterparts. I'd actually prefer that, rather than seeing what rush/hack job they did if they assembled them pre-ship.
Putting them together is actually some nostalgic fun, for those of you who built any sort of model kit once upon a time. The sticker applications, however, are total hell.
If any of you have NOT bought microns before, let me offer one piece of advice: THE STICKERS GET APPLIED AS YOU BUILD THE KIT, NOT AFTER! Especially important is the faction symbol that goes behind the crystal - I foolishly tried to apply stickers post-build, and you can not remove that crystal part on some of these guys, no matter how hard you try!
Ehhh, this may not be that much of an addition, but it's still a nice thought. Can't wait to sign up for this!
The Optimus Prime + Gaia Unicron had the Micron already assembled and
painted. I'm expecting the same to be done here. I'm praying they assemble S.2 correctly and not as shown in his instructions
Plus, IIRC, Hasbro isn't too keen on Fun Pub letting people get their hands on unassembled figure sprues outside of the customization classes.
Also, the Gacha Arms Microns were all packed pre-assembled and painted, so there's also that precedence.

Fall of Cybertron Decepticon Frenzy (who's red)
Arms Micron AM-31 Frenzy (who's blue)
And now we have a new Frenzy (who's grey). Discounting US/Japan differences, if that Barricade is Prime Barricade, then what exactly is the new Frenzy? New character?
Hopefully there will be some clarification in the toy's bio.
Who knows, this could be a third body for Aligned Frenzy.

Same with Treadshot going from Actionmaster to Targetmaster.
(Granted Hot Rod traded in his Targetmaster title to become a Micromaster but that was years ago, and he has sense changed back, sorta)
But, on a fictive level, there's yet to be a "Master switch" for these guys.
Though, Dreamwave retconned all Action Masters with partners who turn into weapons as Targetmasters, so this isn't new for Treadshot.
