Too bad I missed out on Terrorcon Cliffjumper, but that Terrocon Bumblebee will be mine! And more translucent Microns? Gimme! I already have two of the Shadow ones, but I need... uh oh. :shock:

Hmmm, Zombie or undead and "Hell Flame". Coincidence?

That's the coolest BB repaint I've seen in a while. Takara does it right, while Hasbro thinks it's enough to just change the shade of yellow slightly and add some green, gray, or black details.

Is that the FE mold or the PRID mold?

Man, Hasbro could learn a thing or two from Takara about milking the same molds and making them desirable.

I'm missing the part about Terrorcon BB - is he a retailer exclusive, giveaway, etc? How does one go about owning one? He's gonna look neat next to the e-Hobby Black Rodimus Prime.

That triple combo in Prime's hand is awesome, but the viscious design makes me think it belongs more in the hands of a Decepticon.

Thanks! Hadn't heard of this retailer before, so I wonder what the production run is on this figure. AM collecting had definitely been a learning experience for me, and a somewhat costly one at that. Thankfully, I haven't tried to get all the Micron variants yet.

Speaking of retailers, the stores for the Hellflame Microns were never specified. As such:

Zamu: Toys 'R Us Japan
Gul: Aeon
Jida: Joshin Kids' Land & Bic Camera
Noji: Ideon Group (Ishimaru, DeoDeo, Eiden, Midori), Yamada & Yodobashi Camera

One with the purchase of 3,000 Yen worth of Prime product, except for Gul, he comes with the purchase of Megatron Darkness.

I'm glad I finally decided to not go after the Arms Micron stuff. Too expensive, too much to import, and the exclusivity on these microns is ridiculous, especially for someone not living in Japan.

They used to be called JUSCO until some big retail group bought them out a few years ago. For a while it was called AEON JUSCO and just recently they finally dropped JUSCO from the name.

An update to the website giveaways...

-A Papercraft trailer for Optimus Prime exclusive to Toys 'R Us. Its a limited time giveaway that comes with the purchase of a AM01 Optimus or a Toys 'R Us exclusive Battle Shield Optimus.

-A sticker sheet exclusive to AEON. Comes with the purchase of AM01 Optimus Prime.

They are listed at the bottom of the page: http://tf.takaratomy.co.jp/toy/event/2012/micron_present/

Huh, it seems three of the HellFlame Micron can form a Super Combo Weapon according to the game: Jida, Zamu and Noji can form the Prominence Killer. Quite surprising if I say so myself. Even more since they normally form the Big Scissor Combo Weapon in a different configuration.
