    anyone else pre order these on BBTS. They dont come until May but the price is pretty good for 5 bots which includes a bumble bee with the anime face. Plus i need a new cosmos.

    I did! I did! ^_^
    I missed out on the Bumblebee with the remolded head the first time they released it in the book-style reissues. Not going to make that same mistake twice.
    I wonder if BB will have the keychain hole on his bumper shown in the pics on BBTS. I hope not. Also, how much do you want to bet the other Mini-Bots will have "show-accurate" blue eyes?

    Huffer getting a new face is probably just wishful thinking on my part, though...

    That's something I don't get. They went to the trouble of retooling Bumblebee's face to match the 'toon, but no-one else got a look in - even just the ones from the set. Not that I have any interest in 'toon faces, or anything.
    I also don't see why Gears was left out. It's an odd selection of Minibots, and the only connection I see with them is that they're the ones from the reissue set (and redecoed for the E-Hobby Gobots set), which as I recall, did include Gears. The Gobots set certainly did, in the form of Smallfoot, so why he's not here is a mystery.

    They probably tossed out Gears to lower the price.

    I am more suprised that windcharger did not wind up in the line up as he was a fairly popular mini-bot when I was a kid. I know he did not get much love in the cartoon but he was not a bad little toy.
