Takara Tomy Makes Transformers Prime Awesomer - Japanese Series to Add Microns

Thanks to some new production solicitations that are making the rounds online, we have news and images that the Takara Tomy versions of the Transformer Prime series will be something quite different from the USA line.

Takara will be including Microns (Minicons) in their toy series, but probably not on the show itself. Likewise, we can see there are plans for new toys like the Airachnid figure.

The Microns are filling a Targetmaster like role here as they transform from robots into weapons.

Check out the images below for more details on these Micron figures.

Except not at K Mart, most of those are closing. They can do the exclusive at Big Lots and other Market 6 stores LOL

If K Mart wants to have any hope of existing going forward they should adopt Big Lots' business model. They sure as heck aren't going to beat Walmart....

If I've said it once I've said it a thousand times: Minicons make everything cooler. Wait a minute. I've never said that. :P

Seriously though, it would be cool to see these outside Japan, maybe bundled together in a set like that K-mart exclusive box of Minicons from a few years back.

I want to see a Voyager Ratchet and a Deluxe Arachnid. As a matter of fact I want to be able to find the First Edition!

Er, this isn't really new, we've been seeing Mini-cons with the Prime toys all month. And I don't think they're previewing an Arachnia figure, they're just showing off key members on each side.

Hoping those find their way here in some form.
