    K-Mart Exclusive Universe 2.0 Minicon 12 Packs have been released in Canada for $29.99 each. I believe they are exclusive to Zellers only as they are carrying the Universe 2 Packs and Legend Packs as well.They come in bilingual (Fre/Eng) packaging. Props to Icetron for the sighting on Cybertron.ca

    $30 seems kinda expensive for only 12 mini-cons.

    Well it was $9.99 for a 3 pack before, so $29.99 is actually $10 off.

    I don't understand how anyone can appreciate mini-cons, small and pretty useless.

    Right, not nearly as useful as your larger Transformers. Those big ones have... you know... so many uses. Wait... remind me what they're used for again?

    And small doesn't equal bad, in my opinion.

    Agreed.. Standard inflated pricing for Canada once again.

    Yeah that's what I thought too, which is why I passed. Looks like most people think so too since I still saw a lot when I went back today...

    Hope they go on sale soon. :)

    While I know they're not everyone's cup of tea, Minicons are certainly the most successful and enduring "gimmick" in the history of TFs... they've been in a half dozen different lines spanning almost seven years. In much the same way I see Alternators as the logical evolution of the G1 cars, Minicons feel to me like upgraded/advanced Micromasters.

    If I had to complain about them, I wish that from the onset they had simply been called "Micromasters" rather than "Minicons". A minor complaint, though.

    Back on topic... I just grabbed these guys and this is very original/unique packaging. It displays absolutely beautifully, and the protective plastic that goes around more than just the front of the box makes it feel a bit more "high end" like a lot of the Japanese packaging. These aren't my favorite Minicon molds, but very nicely done nonetheless.
