    Wasn't there some mention at BotCon that there would be beast Minicons coming up? Whatever happened with this? You would think we would've seen some pictures of them by now- we've already had our first look at Neo-G1 (Astrotrain). Theres not much more left to Cybertron, and the next two series are looking like they're not going to have minicons at all... when were they planning to release these guys?

    I've wanted them to try this for a good while now. It'd be cool if they did them as animals that actually ARE small: Tree frog, mouse, fly, bumblebee. Or as cute little superdeformed rhino, lion, eagle, ect.

    Hopefully the idea has not been forgot cause I think it'd be really fun. :)

    Wave 4 of the Minicon packs are going to be Energon Perceptor vs the Space minicon team, it wont take too long to get out and Cybertron does have a ways to go yet. After those two teams they're out of teams that haven't been repainted and they promised new molds in that line, best bet if we dont see a Jungle Planet pack toward the end of Cybertron, we will see them there.

    Man, can you imagine the potential with beast minicons? I mean, the vehicle-mode minicons we have now are pretty good, but beast alt modes would give it a whol new spin!

    They would be perfect for the Beast planet in Cybertron, just make some insect guys for Decepticons and little rodents or bird for the Autobots, so they stay in proportion with everyone else!

    They could even make combiner teams, and have new mini versions of Magnaboss, Tripredacus, Predaking, Piranacon and even Abominus!

    Just a little claification. We were promised new molds in the Mini-Con two packs. However. We were told these would commence with Wave 3. It didn't, because plans change. Instead, we're seeing the first new molds they designed being used for Cybertron.

    In addition, they didn't actually say there *would* be Beast Microns. What was said was that beasts were possible and could happen. Again, plans can change.

    Didn't they mention that they REALLY wanted to try doing some? I remember hearing that the fans' reaction to this news was intense! I'm sure they've at least considered it by now...

    Yes I would definatly get some, I have been avoiding Minicon two packs latley because I have tomany of the little blighhters from Armada.

    Beastminicons would be awsome though, A little cheetah, Rhino, T-Rex and Gorilla as a homage to beast wars. They would be in scale with Autobots and Decepticons too.

    Beast minicons would be cool and hopefully good for repaints/kitbashing.

    Well, remember that we haven't seen anything from Cybertron (sans Deluxe Unicron and the Prime "repaints") past the summer, folks, and there's still fall and maybe the beginning of winter for the end of the line. They said the Minicon Battle Packs would be new molds after the first several waves-- not to mention that after the Energon Perceptor/Armada Requiem Blaster repaint wave, there's really only enough Minicon molds for one more wave of Minicon repaints, two if they want to re-use the Race Team mold again... I imagine the last few waves will have some Beast Minicons in them....

    Would be nice for Armada Cheetor or Rhinox to have a little creature connected to them instead of a small dune buggy stuck on their butt.

    No way, dude. T-Rexes are a LOT bigger than that.

    The original T-Rex Megatron would be closer to Alternator scale.

    Well, it would fit the theme of the whole planet key thing if they did come out with a set of three Beast Mini-cons. I mean, Earth got the main three in the show, the remolded Race Team were from Speedia, (Velocitron) and the next set is from the Giant Planet. So we need a Mini-con Team to be from the Beast Planet to make it all even. :thumbs2:
