It looks like the Battle Shield is comprised of three separate Microns, most likely from the AMW series.

Different colours, but it's definitely three of the ones that are up for pre-order.

Surely only serious Micron collectors are going to fork out for yet another PRIME Prime.

I don't have him, been eyeing the RiD and Arms Micron one (one has the sword, the other a blue Micron) and can't decide between the two. Adding the bonuses makes me wish I had a contact in Japan :sad:

That translucent smoky black plastic makes Prime look dead inside, especially in his cold, dark, hollow eyes. And why does his head look so weird anyways?

If this was how Prime looked in the 1st place for the AM line, more people would have bought it! :BANG_HEAD: At least this has red below the windows and black instead of blue on the forearms...

Gimme! :twisted: That set is just perfect, with that dark O.P. and a Shining B.2, only thing missing now is a another R.A. redeco for the Star Saber.

They've posted an image of the figure in truck mode with the included papercraft trailer attached.

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.
