    (i'm fairly certain the new Perceptor will look like s#!t)

    and New Mold Minicons

    that sub is amazing ~the arms are a little wack, but i can forgive it for the transformation ~ actually 'wack' arms seem to be par for the course for this set. wonder if these guys are decepticons, the certainly look it (Haven't the previous 2 3 packs been sold as Autobots?)

    and Ransack GT
    http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=HAS12008&mode=retail (yuck!)
    Edit: actually, he's not that abd after looking at his 'bot mode a little more... i was just hoping we'd get a blue autoobot police bike as Energon Prowl reborn, i liked the white Police Gasket from JPN and thought that would have been a natural evolution of the idea, plus what's a TF line without a Prowl :p  ......

    :lol  the "Evil Kineval" Minicon looks pretty cool. The new molds are pretty neat too. I can't say I'm the biggest mini-con fan, but I like em'.

    Wow.. I like them all. Especially Highwire and the submarine Mini-con.

    Is it just me, or did Ransack GT make a cameo in the club comic?

    Given that the previous version of Perceptor looked like garbage, that's definitely a distinct possibility.

    Well, glad to see I was right about the Space Team repaints (though I got the names switched), as this is cool set. I'm hoping they fixed some of the instabilities for this release though. The Perceptor team repaints are destined for the bottom of my storage containers, but the new Requiem Blaster should be worth the cost. New mold Minicons all look nice as well, especially the submarine figure.

    Due to their color schemes, it looks like the Street Action Team is now the Circus Action Team.. still pretty cool, though.

    Who called Ransack GT from the Club comic? Awww yeah, that's right, I did....

    New Minicons look coolies, too. No real theme, though....

    I'm indifferent about the Mini-Cons repaints. I'd like to see robot and combined mode pics.

    The new Mini-Cons are neat. I like the fact that this team is an ecclectic mix of alt modes. And kudos to Hasbro for making a submarine Transformer. :thumb 

    Ransack GT looks nice. But wasn't that Ransack repaint from the club comic a fan-made custom? And I'm disappointed that we're not getting a Wheelie homage, though I never expected Hasbro to make an orange repaint of a red Transformer. Oh well, custom time!

    Maybe an "All-Terrain Team", since we've got a plane, a land vehicle and a sub?

    Sweet, I called the new versus packs :D  But I have been denied my dream of a repainted Sea Team yet again...

    I guess Kicker grew up to be a stuntman... Considering they actually put a purple flame job on Sureshock, I'm fairly certain PErceptor's going to look like crap... but anyone imagine how the Requiem Blaster's going to look? I doubt it's going to be any better...

    The new Minicons are sweet, obviously Decepticons to counter the new Street Action team. The new plane's missiles make up for his shortcomings, and the crane is cool, transform should be neat... really digging the battleship though.

    Ransack GT, completely left field of what I was expecting... Looks like a futuristic RiD Sideways. Looks cool though.

    Ransack GTs back wheel seem to be on the right/wrong way up.

    Ransack GT is pretty cool. Not quite the colours I was expecting, but looks to be a solid repaint (of a solid figure, no less - a definite must-buy)

    The minicon repaints are kinda cool, nice to finally see the space team again.

    The new mold minicons are also pretty damn sweet, lovin' all three - especially the plane! I'm sure they're going to be Decepticons, those colours just scream "Bad Guys!"

    Yeah, I just noticed they fixed the rear wheel struts, that was good of them to do at least.

    Yes, but the custom and the bot in the comic ended up being different colors.

    As cool as Ransack GT is, I think he would work better as an entirely new character... he just looks TOO different from Ransack. Still, no complaints - he's one awesome repaint (love the green wheels!)
