This is just a quick and very brief review of the "EU exclusive minicon set". It must have appeared on shelves in Slovakia (in Tesco stores) sometime at the end of October/beginning of November; I spotted it on November 8. The set is priced at EUR 23.99 (Ouch! 4 EUR for a minicon?), which seems to me a bit too much for what you get. Summarized in one sentence: you get 4 very nice minicons, 1 cute weirdo, 2 nice minicons and 1 I did not like from the start. My camera was running low on power and I only had time to take quick shots. Let me start with Heavy Liftor. The vehicle mode is fine. It's the robot mode's boobs (they are more striking in person) and absence of any hint of hands or movie-style claws/guns that make me consider him the worst of the set. In addition, as if the poor fella could sense my hard feelings towards him, he split apart. Literarily. After the first transformation I noticed one of the torso halves just won't stay on the peg and will dislodge with the slightest play. Well, well, I though, I can still live with that. Then I tried to transform the robot into vehicle mode and -tamtadada- his waist joint broke off! Let's hope this is not a general defect present in the whole run of this figure. IMO, the '2 nice minicons' are Barrel Roll and Iron Claw. BR is a standard jet minicon with interesting transformation. IC could very easily move a grade higher if it were not for his silly feet. Am I doing something wrong? He stands only if both his arms are stretched pretty far out (moonwalking minicon anyone?). He seems to have functional thigh joints and I thought I could hunch him a bit forwards, but they are super tight and I can still remember the Heavy Liftor incident... so there is no way I am even going to try. Speaking of tightness, his shoulder joints are quite tight too and I swear I can hear them crack nanometer by nanometer every time I move the arms around... Next is the cute weirdo - Ironside. Poor bugger can hardly stand on his legs. He is more unstable than ROTF deluxe Sideswipe or Animated Blackarachnia. Can't strike any pose, can barely move his arms around... but for some reason I like him a lot. His colors remind of Energon Cyclonus (copter). Airlift and Diveplane. Very nice minicons with lots of molded detail, especially on Diveplane. AL is a good sidekick plane for PCC Skyhammer (may do a short review tomorrow). Too bad the picture is blurry (sorry). Among all these minicons, I like Reachout and Buckshot best. Great vehicle modes smelling of G1 micromasters, very nice robot modes with lots of small detail and clever paint apps.
