Seems like the arms microns would be excellent choice for McDs
Absolutely not. There's a reason model kits are not marketed to young children. There are risks of swallowing/chocking on tiny pieces, poking/cutting body parts with sharp/pointy edges, and losing pieces, among other things.

Not to mention the complexity of putting them together and applying the teeny-tiny stickers in ever so precise a manner could get frustration for those kids with short patience and/or shaky hands.

Happy meal toys are meant to be safe, simple, and Preschool child-friendly, which the Arms Microns (or most any model kits for that matter) are not.

Breakdown is the only one worth getting. He's a little too tall, but close enough to Commander scale that I threw him in with my Cyberverse display.

I like Breakdown, but there is not enough blue. Still I might get him.

After the commercial, we now realized what has happened to the little ant:

He got squished by Optimus(?) when the toy did not expect the so called "mascots" to promote McD's, so he walked away and went to search for Ronald, Grimace, etc.

Got Bumblebee yesterday. It's really bad and boring. Even my son kind of don't want it (he wants Starscream).
