"Did you know?"

1992 was the year when Fight! Super Robot Lifeform Transformers ended with Operation Combination. And 2012 was the year when Transformers: UNITED ended with UNITED EX. Both are based on redeco figures, and the primary sets involve combination teams.

[Also, I am wondering if Takara Tomy had any intentions to make this a micro-continuity. Mostly because some obscure/unused facts can tie Optimus Prime to Optimus Primal and Megatron to Beast Megatron. But the rest... No clue. :???:]

Meh! Like El Duque said, nothing too major. I hate those shots of the Arms Microns figures sporting multiples of a specific Micron. It's just a tease that I will more than likely not be able to recreate the awesome.

Am I the only one here who thinks the PCC's look great?

Not at all. I think the paint apps are really good. Not enough to get me to shell out the big bucks they are going for, especially considering I have all of the Hasbro PCC figures already, but if I ever found them cheap I'd probably grab them.

Chopper master is too sweet. I love that green on him. The price keeps me off, though. Let's hope they'll sell so badly the price drops like an anvil.

Are the Minicons translucent?

Not sure. But I bet that their political agendas on Cybertron are.

Bazinga!

Doesn't look like it. That means no light piping either.

Judging from what we've seen so far, I think you're right. However, Chainclaw (or whatever Takara is going to call him) sorta looks translucent.
