From SPX once again:
Auction Links: I dont know what name goes to what so...
God I need them!
wow. they did the crane guy in g2 constructicon colors. nice.
Very Sweet! Look forward to getting these with Club Astrotrain!
'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!!".
"Hook, Line and Sinker"
omg, theyre referencing characters from the matrix quest story arc!
Wow, three rancid minicons with added stank. Hooray.
Diggin the colors.
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!
My $137 shelled out for the exclusives is getting easier and easier to swallow. ^_______^
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)
man, i really want these...i need to win the lotto sometime between now and their release date...
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.
The minicons are pretty nice.
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.
