    "Deepdive?"

    What the hell happened to all the "good" water-based names? Like the ones they used for the Sea Team?

    Sweet! The Giant Planet Mini-Cons are Decepticons! But wow, that's a rather... uninspiring name for the team. I happen to like the name Deepdive, but then again, I'm a little biased since the name happens to be a Kingdom Hearts reference of sorts.

    Besides, it could be worse. Hasbro could have called him Dive-Dive like the Gobot. :D 

    Love Ransack's bio, and I still like his paint scheme despite him not being a Wheelie homage like I wanted.

    Ransack GTS has a painted key. Would be nice if it stayed that way, Hasbro.

    The bios on both Scout-class guys are interesting, but it's strange to see Mini-Cons so clearly classified as 'Cons when they never have been traditionally. They even have a planet designation...

    They look great, it's nice to see they didn't fix Ransack's rear tire, I really didn't want to go thru that again.

    Deepdive reminds me quite a bit of the old Go-Bot Dive-Dive. VERY cool.

    Cool, nice to see the minicon team painted, it's amazing how a pint job can change one's opinion so quickly. Cool to see they're cons since the autobots get all the mini con love, so the decepticons need some too.

    Giant Minicon team? Can you be a giant and still be Mini? I read the title and was thinking of huge minicons.

    Well, on Gigantion (Giant Planet) both Minicons and Transformers live....the minicons do all the small jobs that the Gigantions are too big to do, and they live mostly in peace with each other, although apparntly, these minicons are bad ones.

    Same here. They look great anyway, though. Ransack GTS isn't bad at all, either.

    I like the jumbo-shrimp team. The Submarine looks like one of the coolest minicons yet!

    The color scheme for the construction vehicle is always nice to see but it is a bit trite. He looks like a retread of that black minicon from the first Armada wave.

    I still like the name "Overcast" and this minicon looks decent... but not extremely well executed.

    I'm definintely liking those minicons. And Ransack, but I'm probably passing on him. Somehow I'm picturing Divedive- er, deepdive, with E-Mirage or Thunderblast. Get a little d-con navy action going. Hmm... uh oh, idea brewing.
