    Shared between Walgreens and Big Lots and Family Dollar and other such places, I'd imagine.

    Cool, I might get some of these (Drivetrain & Break Neck most likely). Also, what a missed oppurtunity to have done another Go-Bots homage: color Break Neck in Crasher colors & you'd be set. Heck, they could have done Swashplate as Cop-Tur & Drivetrain as Littlefoot (or whatever the name was of that Go-Bots truck).

    Man. I can't stand dollar generals pricepoint for minicons. Its like $3.99 for one.

    Unless I see a more appealing price range. Or they start poping up at walmart sidecaps. Then I'll pass.

    That cybertron Jolt reverb and sixspeed repaint set could be nice though. As I recall those have sturdy transformations.

    Too bad they don't reissue the weapon Minicon triple-changers more often. I'd totally buy those to use as Targetmasters.

    I want these, and I don't want to fight my Big Lots to get them. Consider myself sold!

    Really? To transform Swashplate you just basically stand him up and then you get big domed head? The designer must have had a dance recital or soccer game to get to and left work early that day.

    I take it that you have never heard the term "breakneck speed". It means extremely quickly.

    Are these repaints from a older series or brand new figures?
