    Wow, I hope thats not the only way to get the jet and motorcycle Minicons (seriously doubt they'd do that). Neat, I guess... I'll probably just be getting the Minicons via the 3-packs though.

    Damn you, Hasbro! I'm tempted to take mine back and wait for this one. All it needs is the Unicron head pack-in to push me over the edge.

    ...Huh? First off, those are Classics Minicons, not Cybertron molds, why would Primus still be in production when the Classics come out?

    Secondly, all four of those are from different Minicon teams....

    What the heck? Each is from a different team, they're from the next line, they're not repaints, so if I bought that I'd have to be okay with having two of each of those in order to get their team-mates... Why would they expect any collector aside from the completists to buy that?

    The bonus Minicon pack-ins showed up after Christmas this year. I wonder if this is the 2007 Primus? Perhaps he will be on shelves until the movie?

    Hasbro is overdoing it. They probably made the same mistake as they did with Unicron. Maybe they will sell him under classics line.

    I wonder if these might be a "sneak preview" type thing. Something tells me the Minicons won't be exclusives, even as toys that small it'd make little financial sense especially given the fact Primus has already been out for a while. So my guess is either it's a "sneak preview" of the upcoming new Minicons, or what has already been suggested, that Primus is going to carry on through Classics (very likely since the big toys move slowly, or at the least they have done in the past).

    Wow... that's a good deal though, 4 exrta minis. Primus will be out at least through xmas, so maybe this is a December/holiday bonus idea.

    Errgh minicons, what a waste of plastic. minicons look crap and do sod all, except attatch to a TF and make them look like they have some pussy robotic growth.

    It's a very cool bonus, but kind of annoying that it's 1 member from 4 teams AND not repainted, so if you want the other 2 of any of those sets you end up with a duplicate...

    still, a good value for the kiddies!
    well, they pretty clearly were meant to be Cybertron molds, they just got held over to fill up the basic Price point shelf space when Classics hits (<--my theory :p  )

    You're seeing this as your 3rd piece of Primus running?? Then I'll be damned if I get this AGAIN just for the NEW Mini-Cons! :(  *Does a count & here's the result: 2X Takara GF C-00 Primus & 2X Hasbro Cybertron Primus w/Unicron head* (Sigh!) :cry 

    Well, if Unicron was seen from Armada till Energon, I think it will do justice for Primus to be seen from Cybertron to..er..Classics/whatever line that's coming right after Classics. Afterall, it will be a waste/SINFUL for Hasbro if they quit doing this kind of things. :lol 

    I'll probably pay more attention to this IF Hasbro made this figure as..er..Nemesis Primus?? :lolol

    Most of Hasbro's customers are parents and young kids. Collectors are hardly the focus of the Cybertron line. More than likely, the extra little guys were a bargaining chip to get Target to buy more volume.

    Keep in mind, it could be that Hasbro made so many Primus figures that they can't just release them in two waves and that's it. They probably had to do a big run of the figure, so they'll keep him on the shelves through Christmas and to make parents go "Heyyyy" they threw in like 4 extra toys.

    Smart move, actually.

    I certainly hope those Minicons will be made available in those individual minicon packs...
