Hmmm . . . might be interested in Suppressor depending on the MSRP. Hope these aren't exclusives that I can't track down.

Okaaaaaaaay.

Makeshift, Brimstone and Suppresor, and maybe Bodyblock would sell well as single packs, but BOLTFLASH???? WTF?

I've got the Boltflash mold but then he's called Nightscream. I've been paying a fifty euros (57 dollars I believe) for him. No I am not insane, he was just a free gift with my Primus.

I hope these things are for like Dollar Stores or something and sell for $2 at most. I can't see paying $3+ for a single Minicon.

Boltflash is one of the ones I simply tolerate rather than enjoy, while Bodyblock is one of my favorites...just maybe not in those colors, quite as much as in the original release.

Makeshift remains my favorite Mini-Con mold I've ever handled, though.

Releasing these as single packs is interesting...unless I break one from the 12-pack, I won't have too much use for the,, but I could see myself giving them as gifts. I've got a couple non-TF-collecting friends who've really enjoyed fiddling with some of my Mini-Cons.

Yeeah, i totally agree wif ya there. Bodyblock is better as Grindor with the original Green and Gray, whereas Boltfalsh is just a mediocre fig, but still not under the WTF? category for me yet.

Actually Boltflash's colouring is what made me not throw it away.

Bodyblock has a unique transformation but the colors are way... off for a vehicle like that, if you get what I mean.

Imo roughly 90% of the post-armada minis are pretty craptacular. Many of the robots are pretty gimpy. Suppressor was one of the few classics minis that I really wanted. The cop car's pretty good, but I have him.

Might grab the tank if they make him a single. I'll call him Warpath since I won't remember his real name. Don't like the robot mode, but the Warpath homage is cool (actually hate the character, but love the minibot. Go figure . . .).

Probably grab brimstone for his beast mode.

You mean Heavytread? The red tank? I hope he's a single as well.

Why grab Heavy Tread when we'll be having a proper Legends Warpath soon?

I'll prbably get both. Legends Warpath's tank mode kinda reminds me of a Cybertronian mode.

Yeah, not really my first thoughts when someone mentions 'tank'. Good, though, means i don't have to find something else to make a cyberrtronian form warpath to go along with cosmos.

Grandslam and Raindance? Now it makes sense. Looks like someone is happy with the amount of Legends and Minicons toys Hasbro is churning out...

Too many people are telling me i have too many of the small figs.

I was only joking about the Grandslam and Raindance. If, anything, i'm gonna find a way to shoehorn bumblebee's waist joint into a combiner port. Boltflash and Heavytread can't combine anyway.
