Blog #209: Toy Review: Japanese Transformers Prime Arms Micron Dai

Japanese Transformers Prime Arms Micron Dai

Dai has not previously been released, but is scheduled to ship in different colors with a future Arms Micron release.

Kit:  The kits are fairly easy to assemble, and so far the stickers seem to be staying on well.  The plastic is higher quality than the Kabaya kits.  They have no paint apps and are perfect for customizers to paint up for a more elaborate look.  Each Arms Micron includes something like a spark crystal, but I’m not sure if that is the intent of it.  A sticker goes on before the outer translucent plastic to form it.  They look nice, but I had some problems getting the crystal to stay in on some of them.  Might need a little glue.

Weapon Mode:  Dai’s Cannon mode is nice, but it seems hard to get a figure to hold due to the stock.  I think they should have made the tail the barrel and have it be a more traditional looking gun.  Not bad though.

Robot Mode:  Dai’s crocodile (or alligator) mode is really nice, and definitely one of my favorite animal modes in the line.

Overall:  This one is definitely worth getting.

Combined Weapon Mode

Together, Gabu, Baru, and Dai form the sword Dark Matter Calibur (at least I believe that is it’s name).

Unlike the fancy sword that can be combined from O.P., B.2, and R.A., this is more of a simple broadsword.  It’s big and very well designed.

Thanks for reading!
