Japanese Transformers Prime Weaponizer Gatling Bumblebee with Arms Micron B.2 A
Box: The box is the same size and shape as the US Weaponizer Bumblebee with the graphics and text changed.
Arms Micron B.2 A
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: I’ve always liked this weapon mold, but I would have preferred a different color, either yellow or even better, gold would have been great.
Robot Mode: What B.2 A suffers from (in both modes) is a lack of stickers. I can understand why they might not put stickers on some clear toys, but there is no reason to leave this toy looking so plain in such a dark color.
Gatling Bumblebee (Based on Transformers Prime Weaponizer Bumblebee)
Vehicle Mode: Unlike nearly all the other Arms Micron toys, Bumblebee comes with no stickers. All his details are painted on. He really looks amazing in gold. Also of note is that he seems to have no mold changes, giving you very limited options for connecting other Arms Microns to him (no options really accept connecting them on to B.2 A).
Robot Mode: The painted details are nice, most notably the silver on the end of the gatling guns, which makes it looks much nicer than the USA version. Unfortunately, the only way he can hold his gun is attached to his arm. I would have liked to see him given a different weapon that he could actually hold.
