    Sweet! I hope the rest of the suckers do get released as singles. The only ones I wanted out of the set were Skyhammer and Flatfoot.

    Wonder how these will come packaged? Small blister cards like Legends?

    So awesome. If the price is a bit less then legends (and not at k-mart) I will troop build most of these.

    At least they picked some good molds for the first five. Skyhammer and flatfoot would nice though.
    Since skyhammer has a cobra rattler deco.

    Hurry up and release them for stocking stuffers!

    Blight has also shown up now, so I think all 12 will eventually be released.

    Works for me, as my Cloudraker has a paint error on it I can't be bothered fixing myself.

    Interesting, very interesting. I wasn't expecting any of these guys to be sold on their own. I wander what stores will stock these. Some of them could make for great additions to my Universe Autobots, though I'll probably just get the Superion Gestalt to help fill that roster up.

    I had hoped that they'd do more Mini-cons for the 25th anniversary but I would have liked them to be new molds or even repaints. That said tho, at least I can get another Blight without having to buy another set of twelve since the arm on mine broke.

    Hmmmm...This would be an excelent way to get the mini-cons in the 12-pack I liked better than others, but I like all mini-cons so I'll probably get the 12-pack anyways.

    Hold on...Boltflash looks like Leader-1, and didn't Hasbro re-trademark that name recently? Blight's in there too...Go-Bot Mini-con redeco homages, maybe?

    I'm feeling dollar store exclusives, think like the Spychangers we used to get there.

    That would be great, as there is a Dollar General within walking distance of my house. It's just too bad Dollar General will never have the TF selection stores like Target have.

    Single packed Mini-cons? Isn't the cardboard and plastic going to end up costing more then the toy inside?

    Glad I snagged the 12 pack. Haven't opened it yet though. Seems like a lot of work digging out 12 little figures from their coffin.

    If I find these I might keep them sealed like I did with all those spare Spychangers, they don't take up that much space and they don't look like they'll be terribly expensive either.
