Japanese Transformers Prime Arms Micron Advanced Star Saber 5-Pack, O.P. R, B.2 R, RR.A O, Iro R, and Ooje G

As I have previously reviewed all of these molds, I’ve included links to my original reviews rather than include them all here.

Arms Micron O.P. R

O.P. R was previously released in different colors with Optimus Prime.  Read my review here.

O.P. R looks nice in red, but could have used some more stickers.

B.2 R was previously released in different colors with Bumblebee.  Read my review here.

This is one of my favorites and I love the shade of orange.  Orange is my favorite colors, I wish they’d do more Arms Microns in orange.

Arms Micron Iro R

Iro R was previously released in different colors with Ironhide.  Read my review here.

This one is a bit odd.  On the box, all the toys are in opaque colors, but two of the actual toys are molded in translucent plastic.  If they were going to do them all in translucent colors, I would understand it.  One reason might be that Ironhide should have two weapons, but only comes with one Arms Micron, so by doing it Translucent, they can still do it in red, but also make it different.  It is nice looking, though it’s not one of my favorites.

Arms Micron Ooje G

Ooje G was previously released in different colors with Wheeljack.  Read my review here.

Unlike with Iro R, Ooje G is done in translucent yellow while his regular release with Wheeljack was white.  So, either my theory on the two toys being translucent is wrong, or just wrong for one.  Yeah, it doesn’t make much sense to me either.  It is nice looking, but I still think it’s pretty awful to have a sword sticking out of that plastic box.

Weapon Mode: I really like a number of the combined weapons made from three toys.  The problem is, the ones made from five begin to get cumbersome, and start to look a little ridiculous.  It’s not bad for a sword, I suppose.

Overall: For $25, this is a pretty nice set, even if it’s just to have a bunch more guns to arm your Arms Microns with.

Thanks for reading!
