Not sure why....but I really want this! :-?
Looking to acquire a complete set of the G1 Insecticons (Bombshell, Kickback, and Shrapnel). They dont have to be MISB, have the cards. The TRU re-issues are fine too. The only person that can verify my buying status is CounterPunch as he is the only person I have purchased from.

No. Just no.

What Optimus Prime mold is that? The chest windows are undoubtedly TFP but I don't remember FE or RiD Prime having such skinny legs.

The Micron's standard name is R.A., the first two letters of "Ratchet". Almost all Autobot Microns base their names on the ones of their larger partner. ;) And the Prime mold shown is the Weaponizer, sold in Japan as "Arms Master Optimus"

And this is getting silly. Four of the same combining? You know, I'm suddenly reminded of the Exotic Brothers of Goseiger, four copies of the Dragon Headder.

4) Arms Micron Terrorcon Bumblebee
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

Seriously what is my problem?

I grew up with Headmasters, Targetmasters, and Powermasters(Micromasters were not as cool but I "got" them). Mini partners are Frakking cool. But I just cannot get into these- alt modes are cool but the robot are just weak sauce, they just look lame.

I couldn't even get into Armada Mini cons- vehicle were good, but Micromasters were so many levels up from the deformed bodies of the Mini-cons.

Is it just the difference of a 12 year olds mind to a 36?

Looks like the Weaponizer/Arms Master mold.

It's just as well I don't want this thing. I know each figure would be available throught the various online stores, but having to go to four different highstreet stores to get four different components of a combo weapon is a joke.

Say, I did pretty much the same thing with the green, orange, and pink variants of Cruellock's Energon weapon: stacked 'em up and called it the Krull-saber!

But this? These are probably the first Arms Micron's I have no serious interest in getting, though the pinwheel does look cool enough that I wouldn't mind owning it, so I guess that's the definition of a good exclusive.

It's less severe than you think. Takara has yet to release the Deluxe mold, aside from that every Hasbro release has a Takara counterpart. Then there's Hasbro Dark Energon and Takara's Shining ;)

so there's a Green, Red, Sinestro and Indigo one...the Blue one comes with the Matrix-having Prime Prime, so we only need a pink Sapphire one, an Orange one, and maybe a black one and a white one...or was R.A. in the Shadow Micron set? That could be the Black one, and maybe normal could be white?
