Well, the Atlantic is smaller than the Pacific, so I'd assume online retailers would charge less for the UK versions since their own shipping costs would be lower.chuckdawg1999 wrote:What would be cheaper, getting these from Japan or the UK?

Then I thought "Blind packs are such a shit idea that makes you spend more money if you want a particular figure but maybe I can fondle the pack and maybe make an educated guess."
Then I looked at the pictures and thought "Crap, they're in eggs so I can't do that."
Then I looked at the toys and though "Apart from OP they're all utter rubish so I won't bother."
They'll probably be all Bumblebee's anyway.

Well, at least I can finally get a chance to own that stick-humping-gecko.

Well, judging from the one tiny pic we see, we can't tell for sure if they do come in the same capsules as the Japanese versions. The UK versions look more like they come in little baggies instead.Mykltron wrote:Then I looked at the pictures and thought "Crap, they're in eggs so I can't do that."

Japanese quarter machine toys. If we got toys like this in America I'd be hanging out at Supermarkets more often.

Save up your pocket money an extra week and get a couple of AMWs instead. That said, if they release the later waves, I may have a half-hearted hunt for some of the Bulkhead fists.
I got a bag of the Japanese ones from BBTS Prime is the best Bee is a distant second and the rest are, ok. Wave 2 really looks better. I think most of my issues come from the fact that most of the microns stay in weapon mode due to friction and nothing else.

I like my chainsaw-cat, my drill-bull and my cleaver-bird much more than any of these capsule toys. though, yes, I have only had wave 1. have liked the look of some of the ones in the newer waves, and for £2.50 a pop I'll try them out, but...I'd really much rather Hasbro released the AMWs and/or the kits that comes with the AM Prime toys. I'd love a rhino-hammer!

Indeed, Breakdown's micron is pretty great. But it's really just wave 1 of these that's really lackluster, the rest of them look pretty great. I mean, they aren't perfect, Megatron's looks a bit derpy, but then you have standouts like Bulkhead Knuckle, the Minigun Dragonfly, and the Starscreamarang looks like it'll be nice.
