    I don't remember seeing a thread and I have relatively no knowledge of this, but has anyone in the U.S. seen the new Minicon 10 pack. And If so, I have two questions.

    1. How much is it retailing for?
    2. What chains are carrying him?

    There has been no talk on my sightings board except for one post like a month ago, and I am too lazy to go searching through all those pages. I missed the Kmart pack last year, And I want to get this one to put on Unicrons Rings.

    I'm fairly certain its another K-mart exclusive pack, but I haven't seen it anywhere around here so I don't know the price.

    It's more widely available than just Kmart, as it's an exclusive to "market six" retailers, I believe it was. So Kmarts will actually have it (would be funny to see if appears in mine, as they still have the 12-pack too), as does Meijer. I don't recall where else it's been seen already.

    $22 at Meijer, $26 at K-mart, I believe. I've personally only seen it at Meijer.

    Well, "market six" is a bit of a misnomer, since it's based on that Hasbro's top 5 retailers(markets) were Wal-Mart, Target, TRU, K-Mart, and Kay-bee, and then all the rest were "Market Six". So a "market six" exclusive used to exclude K-mart.

    Well, I'd imagine that's changed in the past year or two. KB is obviously gone, and K-Mart kinda.... sucks royally, even moreso than they did before in my experience. It seems to be the big 3 now as opposed to the big five. So maybe this should be called a "market four" exclusive. :D

    There's still four of them sitting at my local KMart for $26. That's the only place I ever saw the first minicon pack, and haven't seen this one outside of KMarts.

    Tesco are carrying it in the UK, £20, marked down from £40.

    Only one in the set I really care for is Overcharge, and that's purely because he's a taxi.

    All I want from the set is the wolf and the pterodactyl molds, but I can't justify the £20 set just for them.

    Misnomer or not, that would be the fault of Hasbro for continuing to use the term, not my own. :p  The last time the term was even relevant for TFs was during the first Universe, as those stores were the ones that got the Battle in a Box sets. Maybe the later package variant for the Classics Prime/Megatron set as well, the one that didn't include the disc.

    Thanks for all the info guy. 26 bucks just seems like alot to spend on minicons, but I'll kick myself if I pass on this one too.

    Well, if you break it down it's just $2.60 per minicon and that's not so bad. I'll definitely be picking this one up when I see it! I love me some minicons! :D

    Be careful. Once you start, you just can't stop.

    Yeah, no kidding. Minicons are like Transformer Pringles. I never liked them that much, got the first KMart pack, and now I'm pushing over 100 of the little buggers.
    I blame my daughter. She loves them.

    They really are awesome! I don't go for any of the special releases or anything, but I am a big fan. Aside from the ones I've stored on Unicron's rings, I've got a gallon sized Ziplock bag full of the little guys!

    I went to my local K-Mart today (which I absolutely HATE doing!) and they didn't have this set out yet! :(  I did find their exclusive G.I. Joe set, though, so the trip wasn't a total waste.

    I paid 21.99 at Meijers. I don't understand why it's so much more at K-mart, but I noticed that a lot of Transformers are overpriced there.

    I mostly just wanted the pack for the three dinosaurs.
