    I found and the new Generations Mini-Cons in a Family Dollar in Weston, WV. Pan-Handler ( the one I purchased) was there along with the other three Single Pack mini-cons.

    Whoa... $3.50 for a single mini-con. So much for family dollar being cheap.

    Dollar General was selling single minicons (universe?) for $5. I hope i can find some of the generations for around 3.50.

    $3.50 for one Mini-Con? No.

    And at a dollar store too? No.

    For 3.50, I'd want it to transform into a robot with a styrofoam coffee cup I can dump loose change into...

    Honest question from someone who doesn't normally collect mini-cons: how big (or is it how small) are these? Legends size? Any comparison pictures?

    Here is a link to a picture with a mini-con, scout, voyager, and deluxe.

    They are smaller, but about 3/4 - 1/2 the size of a legend.

    I'm paying a little more than that at BBTS, but I don't have to hunt them down or pay tax. What about that 8 pack? Another K-Mart exclusive, I presume?

    Easiest explanation of current Transformer standard sizes/price points:

    Supreme > Leader > Ultra > Voyager > Deluxe > Scout > Legend > Mini-Con

    The PCC 5 packs are essentially voyagers, 2 packs are deluxes, and human alliance are the new ultras, it seems.

    I don't think these are Generations figures.
