Just to translate this is the "Ratchet Spanner", Wheeljack Kunai" "Starscream Boomerang" and "Dobo 1 and Dobo 2" (Combiners? Recolours?) which become a machine gun.

It's just "Gacha" or generally speaking "Gachapon". No "p" :)

So now we're getting:
- Ratchet Spanner
- Wheeljack Kunai (a dagger with a ring at the end of the hilt)
- Starscream Boomerang
- Dobo (from tonbo, dragonfly in Japanese), who turns into a machine gun

I *love* dragonflies, I absolutely must have both version of Dobo!

Thanks guys! For some reason my brain always wants to spell that Gapcha.

The whole Arms Micron extra, add-on, bonus, weapon, gimmick (whatever you want to call it) just doesn't appeal to me


I just havent seen a figure and said "I got to get that just for that AM"
:MAXIMAL:

:MAXIMAL:

if they were the same price, I'd have went for the stickers over the paint just for some AMs. They're not though, so I've yet to buy a proper full AM figure. Got the last set of gacha AMs though, and the first lot of AMW should be shipping to me any time now, so there's that. Hopefully Takara continue to release the Microns on their own, because they're pretty darn awesome. With these, and the AMWs there's no need to buy the larger figures anyway. Win/Win. Would be nice if Hasbro would start doing the Microns on their own though. I'd rather that than the Kreons.

Screamer's the first existing Decepticon character to be given this treatment.

Am I the only person already thinking of this with Wheeljack and Ratchet?

Calling it the "Ratchet Spanner" just makes me wish more than ever that Spanner himself would get a toy. We got official toys of Straxus and Wipe-Out, and a guy who turns into a space-bridge would make a way better Cyberverse playset than a giant hollowed-out Optimus who transforms by sitting down. But now that the Cyberverse DOTM Ark is shelfwarming so bad, Hasbro probably won't chance it.

Still, the HUB keeps telling me it could happen...

It's worth noting that "spanner" is British English for wrench. Let's keep it at that, please.

I really like dobo, but I am disappointed with the colors. I think they should have used green/yellow instead of green/red, it looks to "seasonal". The yellow would give it a waspinator feel.

Someone needs to pair Dobo (either one) with Voyager Skyquake when/if he comes out.

He gets a bit of transmetal waspy with the green and red though.

I'm looking forward to these.

Lotta' layers to that first Micron, actually.

First off, "Ratchet-Spanner" sounds like an awesomely versatile tool.

Second, Spanner was also the neutral scientist who created the space bridge in the comics, and the timing is awesome since Japan just gave us other Microns named Wheezel and Rotorbolt. All coincidence, but every time anyone pretends their Ratchet figure is using the Spanner to fix the Ground/Spacebridge, they'll be referencing Marvel continuity, consciously or not. All the more reason I gotta' get these guys, but I still need wave 2.

There's also this guy I work with: always overly happy and talking crap. He's a bit of a spanner too, but again it'd probably make more sense if you were a Brit. ;)

aw hell. I got wave 1, wave 2 is on the way. These guys aren't the best of the Microns available, but I might as well get these. Maybe I can complete the Prime cast in AM Capsule form, instead of Cyberverse?

I'm not too fond of these "Arms Micron" things, but that Starscream looks interesting. Since his alt mode could pass for some sort of aircraft.

You know what's funny? I posted the question without reading any of the posts (like a tool) and I thought to myself "I bet it'll be JelZe that answers this question."

Thanks buddy, you're better then Google!
