    I picked one up yesterday. It's a really great pair of figures. The only problem is that the tabs connecting Pinpointer in "turret" mode to Tailpipe in vehicle mode just suck. It's very hard to get a good connection with both. If you want an off-set turret, you can just plug it in on one side; it's not like it'll stand on its own either way.

    The other HA basics have a ton of features and posibilitys, this one seems...a lil limited on what he can do. But the Minicon IS KICK ASS........and a NICE figure too..

    Sign me up for one!

    Thanks for the review/pictures. I really like the overall set and can't wait to find one or two in the stores. Including the smaller targetmaster guy is great. Hopefully that trend will catch on with some of the other HA figures.

    First of the HA basics that really intrigues me. Scout motorcycle, minicon, and random dude? Not too shabby.

    The face is pretty neat close-up. Very drone-like. One of the best things is that the face is also present on the vehicle mode windshield.

    It also makes a really nice and cheap Moto-Slave if you don't want to spend sixty bucks on the real one.

    I actually really like this one! The stock-photo from Hasbro was kind of off-putting for some reason, it looked somewhat restricted in its movement, but this review completely changed my mind about the figure! :)

    Another bonus is both bots can be converted into dick mode, with fully torqued boners.

    Anyways, interested in the figure, love the minicon.

    Not just you, and I don't like when someone says, "read the review at my blog" or whatever. I think the write ups should be HERE at tfw. I still haven't read about this guy

    One more comment: the hexagon in the chest, the back wheels and other design elements point to a potential G2 Road Rocket redeco. If Fun Publications can get their hands on this guy, it might be an exclusive...
