Blog #212: Toy Review: Japanese Transformers Prime Arms Micron Jida 2

Japanese Transformers Prime Arms Micron Jida 2

Jida 2 was previously released in different colors with Terrorcon Cliffjumper.  (Jida 2 is how I’ve seen him listed online.  I’m not sure if that’s his official name or just to note he is the second version of Jida.)

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:  Jida is not great, but he is sort of growing on me.  The weapon mode is sort of a serrated sword, but also has a small flip out barrel to sort of make it a gun for the hood of the car.  It does work better for the robot than the car, though.

Robot Mode:  I love Jida’s animal mode, though he is very blocky.  Still, he is one of the better animal modes.

Overall:  If you don’t have Terrorcon Cliffjumper, I’d get it to have the mold, but if you already have the mold, you probably won’t want to bother.

Thanks for reading!

I’m 36 years old, and I work in network tech support for a public school system. I am a huge fan of Star Trek, Transformers, Harry Potter, and Marvel Comics as well as numerous other fandoms. I’m a big sports fan, especially the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots. I collect toys (mostly Transformers but other stuff too), comic books, and Red Sox baseball cards. I watch an obscene amount of television and love going to the movies. I am hopelessly addicted to Wizard Rock and I write Harry Potter Fanfiction, though these days I am working on a couple of different original YA novels.
