    Just wondering are these repaints of Cybertron or before mini cons? I've never seen the bike before.

    No, those Minicons are brand new, and they're coming out in the Classics line somewhere down the road.

    EDIT: Damn, General Tenko beat me to it.

    Here are some clear pics of the minicons... not the very best in designs if you ask me. The motorcyle can barely stand on it's two legs.

    I'll check my Walmart tomorrow to see if they have these in. So far they have the DVD edition 20th Ann. Prime end cap and the Cybertron Leaders with the bonus Scouts up on the shelves so these can't be far behind.

    funny. knowing that these minicons are exclusive actually puts me off from buying the primus. i prefer bots in packaging with their own bios.

    thx for the headsup NM!

    Now I'm curious to know what that blaine dude wrote. I rarely see entirely censored posts. However, I am not encouraging him to past a second time, I am sure he was censored or a reason.

    Back on topic: are these Minicons exactly the same as the upcoming ones in terms of paint jobs? I don't want to have to buy another Primus to get different Minicons...I eman, I wuld if he was cheap, but I dobt he will be.

    On a sidenote, this is the first time I have seen anything sighted in Hawaii before the continental U.S. Crazy!

    Hey pretty much said this news makes him want to do a "raspberry" sound with his voice. Not too constructive at all.

    From the pics I've seen at the various cons they seem to be the exact scheme. They are the exact names as posted above.

    I really want to like the motorcycle minicon but i can't get it to stand up easily it's a real balancing act.

    The instructions for these guys have them listed as the following:

    Decepticon Offshoot (Motorcycle)
    Autobot Strongarm (Police Car)
    Autobot Knockdown (Dinosaur)
    Autobot Nightscream (Jet)

    So maybe what hasbro put up over here is in't correct or the Cybertron version is wrong. Also the instructions for these minicons say Cybertron on them.

    Yeah it rarely happens that Hawaii gets things first, but a friend of mines told me that some manufactures ship their stuff directly to their accounts Hawaii from China. Maybe hasbro did that this time.

    Oops! Bikebot (a.k.a Offshoot) is a Decepticon?? Mm..I think he'll lose as it's 4 against 1 (INCLUDING Primus) :D

    Great looking Minicons, but I'm glad I don 't have to buy Primus yet again. I hope these Minicons come out as Classics really soon. :D
