    i just saw that 10 minicons 10 pack today. is this rare? i dont see any of them on ebay either. it looks pretty cool. but its also 30.00. so im debating on it. is it worth it? they are kind of small. but it just looks cool with 10 mini figures in one big box. was this a new release or a old set?

    Nope not rare in the least bit and not worth the $30 price tag.

    I picked up that exact set for $12 bucks during X-Mas on Clearance.

    Well... whaddya expect when it contains a figure named Overcharge? :) 

    Anyway, this is not a rare set, but it was hard to get if you weren't near a K-Mart.... or if you were near a disorganized and unpredictable K-Mart.... which I fear describes most of them. I had to order mine online, never saw it on the shelves. But yeah, that price is still a bit inflated.

    The highlights of the set are, IMO, Overcharge (just for being the first taxi TF figure), Snowcat, and Ransack.

    Don't pay $30 for it. The Kmarts that have him clearance it at $15 or less. Get a fellow board member to get it for you.

    Common as muck. My local supermarket couldn't shift them for months and that was even when they weren't massively overpriced.
    Wouldn't pay more than a fiver for them, although as they don't fit in with any of the lines I collect, I wouldn't buy them at all.

    I could probably still find that in stores (but I don't go to K-Mart often).

    My sister got me one for Christmas but I was really hoping Tesco would stick a nice big discount on them in the New Year so I could get another set to open. They had loads and loads in stock and then they just suddenly vanished.
