    Which we guessed but here's the line-up!

    So... Beachcomber, Brawn and Wheelie and Pipes, Powerglide and Cosmos going on the silhouettes.

    At least one company has given us some exciting news these last few days. ;-)

    They are way too small, unfortunately. Make them at least Scout-sized and I'm in for the whole line-up.

    Did they and FP seriously have the same idea?

    Is there that big of a market for these? Cause I know I'm sure not in it.

    It all depends on how much they are. I like the Huffer and the idea of Gears, but I don't know if I "third party price" like them.

    Minibots, just like Wreckers, are one of those things I guess fans here complain about that we don't get... so maybe that's where they read the "demand" as.

    If they are cyberverse commander size, they better be under 30$

    Depending on how the brawn and beachcomber mold come out, those will be bought up quick. I've been wanting classics style figs of those two for years.

    Yeah buddy! Hope this Poserglide doesn't look stupid like FansProject's. I can't wait for these.

    Considering we havent gotten widely available decent representations of these characters I can see why someone would want to make them.

    Seaspray and Powerglide: Got Voyager/Ultra figures, the only Decent guys to get remade and even then a lot of people werent happy with the results.
    Brawn: Legends and a subpar RotF Deluxe
    Wheelie, Cosmos: Legends that didnt make it everywhere and now go for insane markup
    Beachcomber: an OKish Legend and a crappy RotF Scout
    Gears: Rotf Repaint homage
    Pipes: Nothing I can remember

    So Yeah, I can see the interest. And consider these bought based on quality.
    Huffer: Crappy PCC Commander

    Well I've been wanting a classics-style Huffer for the longest time, although I have all the other official minibots in classics form already. The only other one I would consider getting is Pipes I suppose. It all depends on the price point and how they compare to the Hasbro/Takara versions.

    This has potential to be very good. I wonder, is that powerglide we saw in the botcon pics really from FP? Maybe those were igear? Dumb question probably. The powerglide was more in line with recent igear reveals than with FP's regulars.

    No money for you HasTak.

    Not impressed with the iGear Seaspray but the FP one looks alright. Then again, the FP Powerglide looks like he's suffering from a chronic case of gigantism!

    I think what both companies have shown looks like trash. I'll stick with what Hasbro has made, and might make later.

    More Minibots = Hell Yeah!

    Subject to price and final designs I'll be in for all of them.
