    'Line' doesn't really do it for me, but you couldn't get better moulds for Hook and Sinker.

    Why do I hear a Hasbro rep's voice in my head saying, "Who the hell would want these? Well...if we paint this one like a G1 insecticon and this one like a G2 constructicon, they'll practically sell themselves, muhahhaha!!". :sly:

    Yep. Hook, Line and Sinker were Unicron's minions in the Marvel comic. They didn't last very long.

    Smart marketing tactic, then: only uber-fan club members would get this reference, and only uber-fan club members will be able to get the figures! :)

    honestly, I would buy Astrotrain just for these guys, but since I'm not a club member I cant (which is probably for the best cos I dont want to spend that much)

    The only thing that would upset me about these guys would be if AFTER I get Astrotrain(who I didn't really want anyway) they were to sell these Mini-cons seperately. That'd piss me off right there.

    edit: To clarify, I meant if the club were to release the Mini-cons seperately sometime down the road.

    Damn I wish these weren't club exclusives. I'd buy them in a heartbeat if they weren't.

    Dude Hook....your sig made me laugh. Not the boistrous guffaw of yore, but the kind of laugh that is silent...and causes lack of oxygen to the brain resulting in eventual mental handicap.

    I really don't think/hope that Hasbro wouldn't do that. At least without making some changes. I hope.
