We've already got E. coli and yeast, how about some more of the standard model organisms? I know some of them aren't microbes, but it would be neat. How about... Drosophila, C. elegans, Xenopus, Zebrafish... Any other ideas?

It would be a cool series even if some are not technically microbes

Any enlarged versions of microscopics are good enough for me...maybe some blood platlets...

It is in the blood and is a clotting factor for when a blood vessel is damaged, those are what came and fill up the hole so you do not bleed to death from a paper cut. Hemophiliacs are defective in platelets and that is why they need blood transfusions and such when they get a cut, for both blood loss and because it gives them platelets so they can form a scab.

Yes, you have a point, just as long as they are not labeled as microbes I guess and as long as they still come out with microbes! Don't want them to lose focus and start making boring toys, I want bacteria !
