I'm impressed with the coloration of the Arms Microns, they're not unpainted or silver like speculated (unless the ones pictured are special versions).
As noted above, they don't have any paint applications, though it's hard to tell if they are entirely covered with a shiny paint colour or just cast in a nice looking plastic. All the detailing is stickers.
Also it would seem like there's not much articulation, sadly.
Still, I want the minicons. I hope they're released in the capsules.
BTW, those ports all over Prime and Bumblebee's vehicle modes look terrible.
It's either shiny paint or just the same photoshop shininess we get from Hasbro stock photos. Those ports don't look so bad in Robot mode, and really, when he minicon connectors not looked weird? God, I'm trying to rationalize this in my mind, I can feel it. Yes they look obtrusive, and I don't like them. I hope they don't ruin the look of someone like Soundwave in Robot Mode. I still want these enough that I'm not buying the American versions, because to me the Microns are the thing here.
The whole Prime line is wrenching my heart in like 5 directions. FE toys look great, but now they're gone. RiD Toys are smaller and disappointing with few paint apps, but Takara's come with Minicons. Minicon ports on the molds, which look bad in alt mode, but okay in robot mode. I didn't even notice the ports until Phazer said something. God hugging dammit.
