Transformers Arms Micron Deluxe Jet Vehicon General with Arms Micron Igu S

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: I really like Igu S in gray/silver.  Still one of my favorite Arms Microns weapons.

Robot Mode: While I do like the coloring, since he is an iguana, I would have liked to see him in green.

Vehicle Mode: Jet Vehicon was an extensive remold of the original Vehicon.  Jet Vehicon General is a straight repaint in gray.  I would have preferred him in white.  This is one of those toys that I’m not even sure why they made.  There has never been a white Vehicon in the cartoon, at least not that I remember.  A very nice toy, but seemingly unnecessary.

Robot Mode: With such a plain color scheme, he really needed more stickers to make him stand out.

Thanks for reading!
