Blog #274: Toy Review: Japanese Transformers Prime Voyager Nemesis Prime with Arms Micron Giza

Japanese Transformers Prime Voyager Nemesis Prime with Arms Micron Giza


Box:  The boxes for the Voyager toys are the same shape as the US versions.  All the text and pictures are changed.  Nemesis Prime has more paint apps than any of the deluxe toys, which is likely the reason for using the window box.

Arms Micron Giza


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: Giza is one of the better swords in the Arms Micron line.  It’s very cool and has no pegs or robot/animal parts sticking out at odd angles.  While most toys could hold it, it’s been designed specifically to fit Optimus Prime’s hand and really looks great.


Robot Mode: Giza is a Sawshark.  Yes, I’m not kidding, it’s a real animal, look it up.  It’s a weird looking thing, but the toy is pretty cool.  It does look a bit like a bird though.

Vehicle Mode: This toy has no mold changes, but it looks phenomenal in black with the green stickers.  Could have used a few more stripes of green on the rear sides of the cab, but still really nice.

Robot Mode: I really like the translucent red of his windows and forearms.  It looks great with the black and green.  A nice toy, but I’m really not sure we needed *another* Nemesis Prime.

Thanks for reading!
