Transformers Arms Micron Deluxe Stunt Wildrider with Arms Micron Ozu

Box: The boxes for the deluxe toys have no windows.  I assume this is due to the lack of paint apps.  They look kind of awful without the stickers, so leaving out the window will hide that.  Good marketing, but it’s only necessary because the toys are so plain without the stickers.

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: Ozu’s gun mode is hard to pin down, but to me it looks like it is supposed to be a Thompson submachine gun (also called a Tommy Gun) though it could be some kind of grenade launcher.  The large barrel shape in the middle is far thicker than a Tommy Gun would have, but it certainly looks like the same idea.  I like it, though I would prefer the barrel be a little longer.

Robot Mode: It is about time the did this.  Ozu is an elephant (or perhaps a mammoth).  He really looks awesome, and I’m glad they did him in gray.  The only thing I can complain about is that he needed to have a few more stickers.

Vehicle Mode: Wildrider is repainted from Wheeljack.  They did a great job painting him to look like G1 Wildrider.  I would have preferred a simple Decepticon logo on the hood than the angled one, but it still looks nice.

Robot Mode: Wildrider has a new head which is based on his G1 animation model.  It looks amazing.  Too bad we’ll never get this head in the USA.

Thanks for reading!
