Frenzy is the Sou mold.

Stylor is the S.2 mold.

Catgut is the Jida mold.

I had a suspicion that Arms Micron would be involved. Let's hope they assemble S.2 actually correctly!

Why call them Microns? Shouldn't these be Mini-Cons or "Deployers"?

Frenzy should have been all gray instead of G1 red, to better homage the versions they're homaging.

Well, this could just be a preliminary name.

Or the fiction might explain it.

He is all gray.

I think the one in front is Stylor and the other is Frenzy. The colors match Chromedome's headmaster more closely than they do Frenzy and this would make Frenzy grey, just as he should be.

Ah Ok, not knowing who Stylor was I assumed the red gray guy in the front was Frenzy.

HELLO, DOLLY! :KREMZEEK:

About time Microns got an American release. Though it's disappointing that they had to be uber exclusives. :-(

I assume the black/gray coloredMicron is Frenzy?

We were shown Chromedome's full reveal, correct? Other than the head concept, obviously.

The sixth reveal can't get here soon enough. :BANG_HEAD:

You ever watched/read any stories featuring the old G1 Headmasters (actually as Headmasters, that is)?

This sweetens the pot considerably, as each micron is worth approximately $8.

I'm betting they require assembly, like their Japanese counterparts. I'd actually prefer that, rather than seeing what rush/hack job they did if they assembled them pre-ship.

Putting them together is actually some nostalgic fun, for those of you who built any sort of model kit once upon a time. The sticker applications, however, are total hell.

If any of you have NOT bought microns before, let me offer one piece of advice: THE STICKERS GET APPLIED AS YOU BUILD THE KIT, NOT AFTER! Especially important is the faction symbol that goes behind the crystal - I foolishly tried to apply stickers post-build, and you can not remove that crystal part on some of these guys, no matter how hard you try! :BANG_HEAD:

Ehhh, this may not be that much of an addition, but it's still a nice thought. Can't wait to sign up for this! :grin:

"CATGUT"

:lol:

I know it's G1, but the name remains rather unfortunate. Poor bot.

Yes I did, have it on DVD in fact. But matter of the fact is, they and their headmasters where such minor and forgettable characters that showed up for a whooping 3 episodes isn't actually enough for me to care enough for them to actually remember their names.

The Optimus Prime + Gaia Unicron had the Micron already assembled and painted. I'm expecting the same to be done here. I'm praying they assemble S.2 correctly and not as shown in his instructions :PRAY:

Well, this is cool, and looks good in regards to what Hasbro is now allowing Funpub access to.

And I'd been wanting to do some Targetmasters out of them (The crab guy who came with Knockout for Botcon Banzaitron for example) So it's kinda cool to see I'm really not that far off my rocker.

That being said, the Memnosurgeon seems to be trading in his finger needles...for a saw... I don't think I want him rooting around in MY processor anymore...

Actually, Barricade will receive Sou, who is the saw. Chromedome will get S.2, who was Smokescreen's little bow-looking dude. ;)

And I just suddenly realised something: we already have 2 versions of Aligned Frenzy:

Fall of Cybertron Decepticon Frenzy (who's red)



Arms Micron AM-31 Frenzy (who's blue)



And now we have a new Frenzy (who's grey). Discounting US/Japan differences, if that Barricade is Prime Barricade, then what exactly is the new Frenzy? New character?

Very cool of them to offer these. Would be great to see more of the molds released here, maybe in a box set?

Frenzy can be any colour he wants, next we'll get one in Ravage and Lazerbeak colours.

And even if this causes a conflict that leads to Aligned having more than one individual named Frenzy, it can be an homage to how back in the day, you had to buy two Frenzies if you wanted both Laserbeak and Ratbat, and Rippersnapper was almost named Frenzy as well. The "only one Steve" rule is hardly in play in that continuity anyway.

Sweetie, that rule went out the window the moment we got Micromasters Sky High and Barrage back in 1990. ;)
