I suppose those are not to everyone's taste, but I'm glad to see that Hasbro/Takara have made small transformers with different kind of transformations (for example that helicopter). It remains to be seen if I'm still happy with the designs as I've had chance to transform those few times...

Hopefully that dragon is just a protype.

Those new moulds don't look too bad, except for the dragon, but it's still nice to see beast mini-cons.

I don't like Heli-Bot's robot mode. Reminds me too much of Armada Nightbeat. I haven't really liked the newer minicons as much as the ones released in Armada, in all honesty.

I like the Dragon a lot. His robot mode's better that Poo-I mean Swoop.

EDIT: Does Strongarm remind anyone else of Trailbreaker in robot mode? I really like that minicon.

Shouldn't be too hard to quess, even if you disagree with me.

Few hints. Because it's ugly in robot mode? Because I don't like the design? Because it looks so much worse than the other beast minicons?

I like most of the alt. molds, but it seems the designers just gave up on the robots mold, and yes the dragon is ugly.

More bios for Mini-Con two-packs?!?
(we've seen the bios for Titanium Thundercracker and Jetfire before)

Quote:
TRANSFORMERS CYBERTRON MINI-CON Class: OVERBITE vs. SWOOP:
When the MINI-CON Council of Sages was originally formed, effort was made to represent the views of all MINI-CON robots. That is how OVERBITE and his teammates DIVEBOMB and WIDELOAD came to sit on the Council. OVERBITE is a vicious robot, with a firm belief in MINI-CON supremacy, who sees the DECEPTICONS as means to great power. His hope has always been to trick GALVATRON into a war of escalation that would leave the larger TRANSFORMERS weakened enough for MINI-CON forces to wipe them out completely.
The oldest member of the MINI-CON Council of Sages, and a firm believer in peace, SWOOP is far smarter than he looks. It is this fact that has helped him last as long on the Council as he has. He believes that any situation can be resolved without violence. He is a master diplomat who uses dialogue, flattery and deception the way a more militant robot uses a laser cannon to break down an opponent's defenses, destroy his position, and emerge victorious. The current battle between the rebels and the Council upsets him, but even as his friends TRACKS and SLEDGE direct the military response, he works to reach a peaceful resolution. Awesome OVERBITE and SWOOP figures change from robots to vehicles and back again!


TRANSFORMERS CYBERTRON MINI-CON Class: DIVEBOMB vs. TRACKS:
"Quick thinking and manipulative, DIVEBOMB is distrusted by friend and ally alike. He is the dealmaker of the pro-DECEPTICON side of the Council of Sages. He believes that even the most honorable MINI-CON has secrets, and he makes it his job to root out those secrets and use them to his advantage. Though he acts wounded when accused of it, blackmail is actually his favorite pastime. When his typical tactics don't work, of course, he has no problem resorting to more direct modes of persuasion, usually involving missiles.
TRACKS is a study in opposites. Though he is physically very slow moving, his mind is incredibly quick. Despite the fact that he is capable of bringing incredible brute force to bear on any argument, he prefers to out think his enemies. Often clumsy in daily life, he displays an uncanny grace on the battlefield. As supreme commander of the Council military, he is a brilliant military strategist, but he would rather solve disputes peacefully, keeping military action as a last resort. He is a firm believer that the MINI-CON robots, DECEPTICONS and AUTOBOTS are all one people, and hopes that one day they will all live in harmony together. Awesome DIVEBOMB and TRACKS figures change from robots to vehicles and back again!"
