I love Dreadwing's shark-micron! That's one of the coolest Microns yet! The ones with animal forms are way cooler than the ones with robot forms.

Agreed Dreadwings Micron looks great. The Shiny Stickers on Wheeljack do look nice.

okay does Dreadwing's micron remind anyone else of Beast wars Depthcharge's guns?
Because it feels like they are trying so hard to beat us over the head with how much they look alike already . . .

They're both sharks, but that's about it. They certainly aren't "trying so hard to beat us over the head with how much they look alike". I don't know where you get that from. :???:

Seems like the Autobot Microns are usually mini versions of the characters they're paired with, while the Decepticon Microns are usually animals.

I totally see Depthcharge in Dreadwing, they have the same shape and color heads plus there bodies look similar.

the images show Wheeljack with the swords as well...I thought AM toys had their Hasbro weapons removed?

Both are awesome! WJ even got a :BOT: on his chest, unlike the Hasbro version.

Battle Shield Prime came with his sword and his Orion Pax release will also come with his gun (the one that he originally came with).

Wheeljack I can do without, but I'm not sure about Dreadwing. It may not be the right shade of blue, but a nice blue it is. Plus it doesn't seem to have too many stickers.

Love Dreadwing, but won't be getting him because his aesthetics don't blend in too well with my Generations/Classics collection. As usual, I like the Con animal microns much more than the Autobots' Mini-Me's.

Tempted to get Wheeljack, but those pegs on his alt mode spoilers look ridiculous. Even if I painted them silver to pass them off as smokestacks/exhaust pipes, they'd still look stupid.

And that peg on his micron's blade...I'm speechless.
