That is very nice packaging. It'll be hard to take them out of the box.

Finally KMart is getting something cool. I always lament that the only TF store within walking distance is a KMart when I'd much rather it be a Target or Wal-Mart.

Meh. The only one I want is Heavytread, for his Warpath-y goodness.
No longer looking for RID Dreadwind, but I still need Smokejumper. I'm also in need of Mammoth Nemesis Prime's tail piece, as my figure lacks it. Send me a PM.

I'm not a huge fan of some of the models' very spindly legs...I'm sure that an artist could make them look much better should they ever surface in a comic.

I really like Makeshift and Bodyblock. Makeshift's frame kind of reminds me of Ruckus for some reason. I like Bodyblock for the original idea of his legs being stacks of tires. He also stood out against the War of the Worlds-esque stilt legs of those like Cloudraker

Wow...there is no way I can pass this up. So many molds I've been after and a handful I've already handled and enjoyed in sweet new colors.

Very Nice. I really enjoy Minicons and this set looks superb. I already own all
of the Classics Minicons but getting these would definately be possible.

Oh F***!

5 are ridiculawesome! Heaqvytread, Boltflash, Flatfoot, Skyhammer, Makeshift!

1 is mediocre + Knockdown (only coz he looks like Blot)

6 are mediocre (You can figure out who these are.)

I love that every single damn one is held down by a twisty tie instead of one of those thin, clear plastic bands. Lately I've become revolted by just how much material is wasted packaging stuff, but toys are almost always the worst offenders.

Damn sticky-fingered children are ruining the planet.

The Overcast Team seems to have gotten the short end of the stick... Knockdown's an Autobot?:eek: Could've fooled me!
Got a complaint?

Aaaaand apparently Woolworths stores in the UK will also get this pack.

Although the photo shows the Mini-Cons in their original "Classics" decos, oddly. Might not be representative of the final product, however.

That was my first thought too.

All that was needed was a catalyst and the machines of war are set in motion.

Toys R' Us Singapore has it.

I bought it, if only for 'Cannon Fodder' if you get what I mean. :D

My mother (suprisingly, cause she ain't a big fan of TFs) said they were cute. Holy macaroni.
