    No Scans but I give you the TF Hightlights (Got Mine's Yesterday):

    *Botcon 2006 Exclusive Figure Set (Main 5)
    *3 Other Mini-Cons to Join Astrotrain Are: Astro-Hook, Astro-Line, and Astro-Sinker.
    *Profiles On Downshift and Unicron.
    *Newest TF Comic "Revelations Part 4" contains TFs like Landquake & Mini-Cons From The Mini-Cons Vs. Sets
    (Like Anti-Blaze & Ramjet) and SkyFall Meets Landquake
    *Transformer Attacktix
    *Optimus Vs Malignus Article (6 Mini-Bot Recolors Released in Brazil).


    Note: The Astrotrain most likely to Get these 3 Mini-Cons is the Club One by my guess.

    ooh, Hook, Line and Sinker finally get some kind of hommage

    I suppose that's the Space Team recolor that came with the Astrotrain testshot, they still have the same colors?

    Wow, Hook, Line and Sinker finally get toys. Now that's a pretty obscure reference.

    I don't think it is that obscure, at least to the fans. I mean it has been a few replies and everyone has gotten the reference.

    This is no more obscure than them mentioning Kirk in an episode of Deep Space Nine.

    This is more Fanwank than anything else.

    Hook, Line, and Sinker were the trio that Unicron sent to get Galvatron from the future in the Marvel comics series, right?

    If they're supposed to go with Astrotrain, I wonder what they turn into.

    It's fanwank sure. But it's more like mentioning Khan in DS9 than Kirk. Most likely it's the Space Team.

    Pretenders meeting Amazonian women is an obscure refference. Hook, Line, and Sinker are a fanservice. :)

    I usually just throw away the carp mag around my Collectors mag. Why do they have to staple it like that

    Irritating, isn't it? It's been brought up a lot and MC has basically told us we have to live with it. Straight into the recycle bin goes mine.

    At least it helps the newsletter get to me undamaged (most of the time).

    I heard the fourth member of the team was cut due to cost issues.

    I really would have loved to see "Astro-Glide".

    Maybe, these three new mini-cons combine to form some version of Astro-train or something. I am curious.

    I hope it is not just another repaint of these minicons.

    Of course they're repaints, Fun Publications can't afford to make entirely new molds for an extremely limited release such as this...

    I guess that would make sense. Isn't it the only other space related minicon outside of the space team?
