If only OP's optics where yellow, I think the colors would be a perfect match for the shows version of Nemesis . . .
and I think the colors of the shield mircons make a more solid looking tool then the individual releases, so all in all I say this looks like a good buy for me

I think some of the Takara design team checked. :P

Actually, this set and the upcoming sword (SupermegaBlackHoleExtremeCalibur! or something that one's called) are specifically designed to form a larger accessory. The individual AM Microns that come with the Japanese Prime toys are advertised as combining, sometimes in officially named ways, other times in just random ways that vary in quality. These things tend to have a couple of Micron ports and pegs on them so combination is possible with most.

All new mold Arms Micron combine one way or another to form new (ridiculous) weapons. There are a couple "set" combinations however, by combining Microns of the same crystal color:

Star Saber
- O.P. (Optimus Prime)
- B.2 (Bumblebee)
- R.A. (Ratchet)

Galaxy Launcher
- C.L. (Cliffjumper)
- B.H. (Bulkhead)
- Arc (Arcee)

Dark Matter Calibur
- Gabu
- Bogu
- Dai

Cosmotector (aka the "Battle Shield")
- Pral
- Sais
- Jayz

Of course, you can combine them in other ways, tho the results are nothing to write home about IMO. Examples:

Morning Star
- Gora (Megatron)
- Balo (Skywarp)
- Zori (Soundwave)

Nebula Scythe
- O.P.
- B.H.
- Arc

Dark Matter Calibur! that's what it is. And it looks fantastic! Cosmotector is alright. Not too keen on any of the other combinations, but maybe once I see them in hand.
