    I found some minicons at Gordman's today that were in G1 Dinobot colors. Does anyone have info on these? I've never seen them before.

    They were released at Ollie's during the Dark of the Moon run. Right before Christmas if I remember correctly.

    Four guys total, released in the DotM line. They were a Big Bad Toy Store, and a few non-mainstream store exclusive. They're good little figures, especially if you like Microns.

    I saw Rav in a Tuesday Morning last Friday. I think they had him priced at $2.99. If they'd had all four I'd've probably picked them up, but alas, Rav was the only one, so I passed. Not like he won't still be there in a couple weeks if I change my mind.

    Rav goes great with Grimstone and his Dinobots:

    Dualor, Triceradon, and Catilla probably would, too.

    Yeah, I'm not much on Minicons. I had never seen them before, thought I was on my way to a news credit. Oh well....

    These recently cropped up cheapish in a toy shop here in the UK so I nabbed them. Normally I don't buy repaints when I already have the originals but MiniCon Dinobots were hard to resist.

    I found these at Tuesday Morning as well. I bought the 3 that resembled Dinobots. For $3 a piece, they're fun little figures. But if it weren't for their Dinobot color scheme I probably wouldn't have been interested in them.

    I see these all the time at Hastings if anyone has one of those stores nearby. They're pretty spendy there though.

    Got these last summer at Ollie's in Hagerstown, MD. My son still plays with them all the time.

    Incidentally, I went to Tuesday Morning on Friday. They had two Dualors. He was the only one I wanted for sure (I definitely would've picked up a Rav... not sure about the other two), so I'm pretty damn pleased.

    I think there was at least one Rav at my local Gordman's. Still haven't gone to Tuesday Morning in a while. Not since I knew they had RTS Bee and I procrastinated and lost it.
