    Powerglide was the original name for the mold. But there were some rights issues.
    I agree Powerglide fits the mold better.

    Boy.. they sure are getting lazy with their minicon designs. I mean the sheer lack of articulation on a couple of those is mind boggling. I look at some of the minicons past and I see these little guys chalked full of detail and then I look at these newer ones.. well it's almost like a step backwards.

    Firebot looks great IMO, but the other 2 have issues. The helicopter's legs are too spindly and his arms don't appear to be able to fold forward. The Police car in robot form looks bowlegged to me.

    Will I still buy them? Heck yeah. Will I buy the enevitable repaints? Yup.

    I'll buy them because they're minicons- though I'm not a huge fan of that awkward looking helicoper. And more LOCs are welcome, too.

    They all look weird. The new molds are crappy as hell except one and the redecos don't work at all.

    Didn't Aaron Archer say at Botcon that they wouldn't be able to use the name "Fireflight"?

    Has it been revealed what the oficial name for that figure will be?

    I would agree with you that the minicons are pretty crappy (except for Firebot, he's all right).... but I've never really liked minicons anyway. I'm actually diggin' the LOC redecos, though! I'm actually glad the plane is Fireflight and not Powerglide.... Powerglide will always be an A-10, and if they can't do him as that, I'd rather they not do him at all.

    Still peculiar to me that they went with "Leo Prime" for that Leobreaker mold, rather than a host of more G1 possibilities: Razorclaw, Rampage, Predaking, Steeljaw, Catilla..... hell, even Ravage. Odd choice.

    im stoked on the new minicons...they may not be super articulated, but for how small they are, i dont care...i just think its cool to see beast minicons...and the helicopter does look a little odd, but theres some other mini's that are just as odd as well...i say bring on the minicons...

    and ill pass on the LOC's...only bought sunstorm so far, and im not too impressed, id rather buy the full size versions of characters...

    I'll definitely be getting the minicons even if they aren't the best ones ever released...and I'll definitely be skipping the 'Legends'

    Hasbro just used "Fireflight" for one of the KB exclusive Micromaster Aerialbots. They released a Universe toy named "Fireflight" two years ago. Why would the name suddenly cause problems now?

    Kyde designed his color layout with Powerglide in mind, Hasbro couldn't get the name, so they decided to name him "Fireflight" instead. We already saw the packaging, and it said "Fireflight".

    Don't know. You tell me! :) 

    I guess I got confused then on what name was the one Hasbro couldn't use.

    We saw the packaging BEFORE Botcon 2006.
