    Minicons look nice! I'll definitely get them. Hightail is a bit boring...will we see something like Cannonball again?

    Did Jolt's metal bits get turned plastic to fit the translucent theme this time around? I thought that was a pretty significant hunk of metal the first time around, and was a bit confused as to why it was there in the first place, as it didn't appear to need it structurally.

    Anyway, dig those minicons. But turning a red-orange cycle red doesn't do much for me. And that mold is pretty ugly anyway. But bring on those minicons.

    I'm looking forward to these minicons so much, has there been any solid information as to a release date?

    All the best

    Man, the new Six-Speed sure does look awesome... Odd that they updated the character bios with Hightail's bio, but none of the other upcoming toys like Smokescreen...

    Odd, I would have thought they would name Hightail's weapon "French" in honor of his being a pansy-ass Autobot. :D

    I always thought it would be cool if they took the Mini Con team and coloured them after the Renegade Gobot trio
