    A bird, a plane and a wolf ?
    Neat designs but I don't realy see the connection between them.
    (and yes I did read the thread from a while ago about the pckaging choices, or was that on tfarchive ?)

    The bird and wolf go with Overbite, a tiger who spx doesn't have up for auction. Steel Wind, the A-10, is a part of the Clear Skies Team.

    I'll edit my post to remove the confusion.

    I love Dreadwing and Snarl. The aesthetics of the Beast Mini-Cons has mostly been awesome. Overbite, the tiger, not so much. But two-thirds of the Predator Attack Team makes it a must-buy for me. After all, Snarl's a wolf. I need him for my wolf collection. :D 

    Steel Wind is pretty damn cool too. His robot mode reminds me of something from super-old-school science fiction, the kind that Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow paid homage to.

    I'll second that. That was one nice thing about living in the last town I did - the Air Force base just a few miles away housed a number of them!

    That love being the case, I can not wait to get my hands on at least 1 Steel Wind if not multiples to repaint some.

    Look OK. Too bad the quality of the new minis is pretty piss poor. Picked up the first wave. Not diggin' the plasticy-fall-apart-ness of them. I'll probably skip future waves.

    Opposite here, the quality of my wave 1 mini-cons are at the same or better level than the original mini-cons.

    Huh. Dreadwing's beast head color and placement in robot mode is... unfortunate. :lol 

    (I dub thee: WANGERBEAK!)

    But I dig him anyway!
