    From Mouth04 of <a href="http://www.theallspark.com" target="_blank">Allspark</a> comes the news that Cybertron Primus is now shipping to Target stores. He's also noted that Titanium should be shipping in about two weeks. And on top of all that, he's also reported the following possibly previously unknown figures shipping to warehouses now:

    Trans Optimus v. Megatron - $19.99
    DPCI # 087-06-1994

    Trans Minicon Classic - $6.99
    DPCI # 087-06-1995

    What could these be? Let the speculation commence!

    So, Hasbro is keeping minicons for classics, maybe we'll see some Micromaster homages like Countdown?
    I AM a bit surprised to see a $2 pricehike, so apparently Hasbro intends to use the minicons to replace the Scout class, that or Target is getting greedy as seen with the hike in Classics Deluxe, maybe both

    Optimus vs. Megatron? Probably an exclusive of a pair of deluxe figures, maybe the Hero molds.
    I'm doubting they'll screw us with BW 10th remolds, but considering we have barely seen the things...

    Optimus v. Megatron could be the BW remolds.

    Mabe the Classics minicons will be cassettes for a future Soundwave, and hopefully the Optimus Vs Megatron is the BW Reborn remolds things. I cant wait for Primus, Im getting him the second I see him. So that means I cant go to any stores if I dont have enough money.

    No clue what those could be. Hoping the minicons will actually have something to do with the classics line, and not be just more minicon repaints.

    I can't see Takara's Beast Wars Reborn being the Optimus vs. Megatron thing. They wouldn't sell two Ultra sized figures for $20. But I've no idea what it COULD be.

    That is probably what they are. With Cybertron ending later this year, the Mini-con packs will most likely continue under the Classics line.

    BW remolds?? Aren't these supposed to be individual packaged?? I'd gotten my set of BW 10th Anniversary Optimus Primal & Megatron yesterday & they ain't packed together. Mm..BW Optimus Primal VS Megatron huh? Do we smell a giftset here just as the product name suggest?:confused:

    I can see the Minicons just being homage-style repaints...I hope I'm wrong and they're new molds though.

    Op vs. Megs...gotta be deluxe sizes...maybe the BWX deluxe molds in a Target exclusive 2-pack

    BW 2-pack? Was there an official announcement from Hasbro or Target confirming this? I sure hope they don't come out as a 2-pack/giftset as I'd already shelled out $$ purchasing the individual ones. Supposingly if they REALLY DO come out as a giftset, I'll be compelled to sell my individuals as I'm a real sucker for giftsets.. :banghead:

    maybe it's a repackage of the BW BatPrime Megallitor 2 pack, that'd be a laugh.

    Maybe the Target Energon Megatron that was cancelled (Using the TRU size) with a recolor similar to the Target Santa Prime, but only using the DX cab...the same set that was at TRU for $24.99, just recollored.

    I know this is impossible, but wouldnt it rule if the Minicon Classics were the WSTs?
