    They are repaints of the Classics Clear Skies Team, Dirt Digger Team, Demolition Team and Night Rescue Team, but the members of the teams have been swapped about slightly.

    Random comment, with the Botcon Predacons repainted from the Predator Attack Team, the only Classics Minicon set not yet repainted for domestic fans is the Dinobot Team.

    Gah, WANT.

    I hope these are much, MUCH easier to find than previous K-Mart exclusives, though I'm not holding my breath. I saw ONE Checkpoint & Prowl ONCE, and never again.

    Cool. The packaging looks really nice. I might actually get this if I can find it. My collection could use some more small bots in it, and unlike Target's Legends 5-packs, this'll be an even split between Autobots and Decepticons, which will be really nice. I can't wait to see what we'll get as homages to RID characters (other than the RH's set we already know about). I'm hoping that we'll at least see one new mold in the 25th Ann. line that's a RID homage. G1, Beast Wars, and Armada are going to get something in the line, so I don't see any reason not to include RID into it.

    I'd get 'em if I ran across them...kinda hard when it's a few hundred miles to the nearest K-mart though. :(

    Because the new Universe line is subdivided with "Series" tags. Armada Series, Classic Series, etc.

    I'm glad K-Mart's exclusives are a bunch of Mini-Cons and not something actually cool, because there isn't a K-Mart around here for 100 miles, maybe more.

    This exclusive is for an entirely different subset of fans- the ones who throw away the toys and keep the packaging.

    Neat package. It's also cool that they mixed the teams up.
