    very nice look, that A-10 minicon would make for a great classic Powerglide.

    Not bad. Never really been interested in Mini-cons before, but all these new molds are making me interested. I may crack and give them a chance...

    Cool! This is great news for thorough, even product distribution. Nobody should have any difficulty tracking down the Classics Minicons over the next few months.

    I understand there's a science to choosing what carries over to the next wave to maximize return on the dollar per mold, but the assortments have occasionally seemed a bit strange over the last few years. It seems like Hasbro would collect feedback from their reps going to stores on what's not selling to ensure those items are withdrawn from future waves. I suppose that perhaps the assortments have to be determined so far in advance, that's difficult or impossible to do.

    I seem to remember some Energon basics that were continuing to ship while the pegs were slammed full, and Cybertron Mudflap comes to mind as well. At least we've learned a bit from four Alt. Smokescreens to a case, hmmm? :D

    While that is cool keep in mind that if you see anything from wave 1 you want, you better get it, because it isn't coming by for a visit in wave 2.

    Hmm I just might have to snag me one of those. I was never interested in them. However Some people have a gambling problem, women have a shoe fetish...I on the other hand can't stop buying Transformers. So I made a vow that I will only get 3 more...Mp05 Megs, Hot Rodimus and the reissue Soundwave. I swear we need to start a help program for those of ue who have way too many of these awsome toys and can't stop buying.

    How many girlfriends and wives have left due to this....Someone start a help clinic.

    "left"? That's only half the problem. Getting them in the first place is the other half. I shudder to think what might happen if I ever manage to get a girl into my bedroom again, and she sees what I've got on display... Still, no danger of that happening any time soon... (*waits for sympathy... not a sausage*) And at least I don't have any Kiss-Play stuff. ;-)

    As to these Minicons, they're cool. I've hardly got any, but these new classic ones I'm going to have to get, especially the animal ones. What can I say? I just like teeny, transforming creatures...

    ^Do you mean you did not get a sausage's worth of sympathy, or that you were waiting for sympathy and not a sausage?

    Wait till they start doing this to larger sizes. In the UK we end up with just the 2 new toys in each wave on the shelves at once. That ain't good for sales. Deluxes have bombed without any choice.

    But if this is to be the last Classics minicon wave it makes perfect sense. Just makes the last dlx assortment look sill with NOT ENOUGH GRIMLOCKS

    Go to a local TRU, I'd be surprised if you can't find 'em. I got back from NYC this weekend and I live in Florida and I've seen them in TRU in both. Why you would want them is another matter.

    I haven't left opinions in the review threads, but I picked them all up and was severely (sp?) disappointed by all of them save the Dinobots. For one, final steps of transformation are missing in several cases from both instructions and card pics. Even the Dinobots weren't what I was expecting from pics. The one I was expecting to dislike from the set, Knockdown, was the one that I liked the most.

    Unless they changed their design goals alot for wave 2, I'm going to have to think long and hard before I actually pick any up.

    Huh. That's an unusually clever case assortment for Hasbro... though the way the Dinobot Team is selling, maybe it'd be wise to still leave 1 of them per case in the next wave...
