The Aerial Extermination Mini-Con Team are servants of the chaos-bringer Unicron, who can combine to form the Vorpal Saber, a twisted, evil, but less powerful copy of the legendary Star Saber sword. They obey Nemesis Prime, accompanying him on his planet-destroying missions.
The Aerial Extermination Mini-Con Team is composed of...
- Jackknife the Boeing Sonic Cruiser jet and sword-tip.
- Maverick the concept-shuttle and sword-hilt.
- Skull Buster the Concord jet and middle of the sword-blade.
- Japanese name: Air Assault Micron (renamed via Fan Club bio)
- Air Assault Micron (Mini-Con Team, 2003)
- Japanese ID number: MM-17
- The Takara Air Assault Team is almost identical to the Hasbro versions of the team of the same name, being a redeco of the Air Defense Team. The three aircraft of the team combine to form the Vorpal Saber/Dark Saber sword, which can be held by any figure that uses 5mm peg-holes for accessories. However, the Takara version uses clear plastic with just a hint of purple to it in place of the Hasbro versions' opaque off-white.
- Rampage with Hawk and Air Defense Dark Saber Micron
- Japanese ID number: MS-08
- This team was also available in a multi-pack with Wheeljack.
