    Two more repaints. Too bad neither is a blue Scrapmetal. Pass.

    Wow, Hightails box art looks so much like Alt Rollbars now.

    Also, I knew it was a Lugnutz repaint!
    But the Shadow mini-con team....awesome! Who cares what the card says, if I get these, they will me Dark minicons: Nemesis-Jolt, Shadow-Speed, And Dark-Verb.

    Wow. What a terrible let down. I was expecting somewhat more than that.

    Repaints suck!

    Yay, pointlessness. The "shadow recon" thing kind of reminds me of the 80s GI Joe line, repainting old characters to represent a new weird subgroup.

    Yup. A nice metallic blue would have worked well.

    Hightail looks better than Lugnutz for sure but... He doesn't look that much different. It's like the big Prime repaint. Better but not worth it.

    Sweet- translucent Minicons. They remind me of the old Car Robots Spychangers.

    There's not much change in Lugnutz and the Shadow Recon Team looks absolutely BORING. Pass on both. More for you guys.

    Unless the repaint is going to be a G1 homage, why even bother. ie: Lugnutz as Groove or Jolt as Whirl or something like that.

    Looks interesting. I won't be getting the minicons so more for the rest of you guys that actually like minicons in general.

    Lugnutz to Hightail... doesn't look like much of a change, but I think that's becuase the flash or whatever lighting was used to take the pics is making the red look a little orangish... I'll still pick him up to bolster my Autobot scout forces... however, I really wish they'd release some more Decepticons in this line before it ends.

    It could be that Hightail is that autobot motorcycle that got chased around by Thundercracker and helped look for the omega lock on the show

    Shadow minicon team: Interesting

    Hightail: MEH MEH and MEH again. One of the most lackluster scouts from this line - cool altmode, but the bot mode sucks absolute ass - I was really hoping for a cool military deco of scout class Scattorshot - I mean, they barely even changed the colors on this guy from what I can tell...

    MEH
