    I went to big lots today and they had Mini-cons blown up to deluxe size. along with the military defense team they had the 4 (counting the energon remold) star saber minicons. Unfortunetly I accidentally bought the remolded mincon so I don't have the complete star saber to show yet but I figure it'll be about a foot long when put together. Also the Minicons have Armada Primes head on them.

    I saw a thread a few days back about sparkplug being found uber-sized but I didn't see anything about these guys. I hope this is a new sighting since I had a First sighting this week and didn't realize it and missed the mark.

    Pics coming once I go back and get the other Con.

    upon closer inspection they don't have the mini-con that forms the hilt so no uber-star saber. pity. but the joints on these guys are nice and tight. so definetly worth $2.50

    I always see these threads about finding stuff at Big Lots but I can NEVER find anything. I was looking for the Crystal Widow 2-pack & the Battle in a Box sets but never saw them.

    Same here. I NEVER see anything special at my Big Lots.
    I'd love a Star Saber, Devastator, and various others including the Prime head Minicons, but I can never find them. I want to get some prime minicons and repaint them to be cool new versions of Optimus Prime.

    gonna hafta check into this, if only because they're upsizing some of my favorite minicons.

    (though admittedly a lot of Minicons lose their charm if they're not ... mini. )

    I held the two pieces that are out so far up to unicorn. He could hold it nicely.

    Another image. Keep in mind this is the hand of a 6'4 24-year old Irishman.

    Holy crap! That looks awesome! Can anyone get me a set? This looks like a wicked saber for the MP Transformers to hold (if they can). The only Knock offs we can in Canada are G1 Combiners, Landcross, and others...

    IMO, Giant Mini-Cons = G1 or Machine Wars Transformers

    EDIT: Do you have any pics of the packaging, or remeber the brand/name that they were sold under? I think I'm going to try hitting up the net for them. Any help would be greatly appreciated, ty

    It's sold under the normal "Space warriors" brand or something like that. I may just go buy them all and mail them out to you guys. hehe.
