    If you're into Micromasters, I'd keep the minicons, to hang out at MM bases like Skystalker and Groundshaker, man gun turrets and stuff. Do you have any?

    Yes. Paint them into Micromasters, definitely.

    Also, I forget what the set is called- the one with Prowl, Firebot, and the Osprey-ish one- that make sort of Targetmasters. That's actually one set I wish I hadn't sold.

    actually i do... i think... pretty sure i've at least got some parts in a bag i got from ORIO... gotta pull that out now...

    yeah, i LOVE that set... i've got the armada set, the repainted armada set, and i bought all 3 universe figures that came with a member because i wanted that set too... i may actually sell one of those sets... and keep the rest...

    i know i'm bumping my own thread, which is a faux pas... but does anyone have any idea on what the armada emergency repaint team goes for? i've got someone interested and need to figure out a price on them, but everything on ebay is for the regular team, except for one store selling the firebot repaint for 10 alone...

    Personally I'd sell them. Because I think painting TFs is kind of a pain. If you're in to that kind of that stuff, than I say go ahead and break out the brushes and paint!

    oh yeah, that's mostly where my extra budget for TF's comes from... i alot myself about 50 a month generally, but if i want something over that, i need to sell stuff, and the minicons, while small, are just something i don't need 3 versions of...

    I really dont like the estetics of the minicons. Look weird and ugly usually imho.
    I love Micromasters though. I sort of like the minicons with beastmodes, they are still ugly as hell in botmode (except the wolf, he look kind of cool).

    I was never into the whole Unicron-trilogy and all that, so was kind of wondering. Concerning Minicons are there more then the 7 beastmolds I know of.
    3 modern Predators (Eagle, Wolf, Tiger)
    3 Dinos (T-rex, Triceratops, Pteradon or whatever it is)
    1 Dragon.
    Are there more minicon beastmodes than those?

    Those molds were the first-ever beast Minicons. All of the previous Minicon alt-modes were vehicles.

    Ebay:
    those are a little harder to find but not sooo much that you would charge a bunch for them. Anywhere in the $6-$20 range depending on the seller and buyer unless the minicon market has changed a bunch.

    well, after all this talk of getting rid of some, i ended up buying two new minicons last night... went out to get ketchup for my mother in law (she made meatloaf!) and found BodyBlock and Makeshift on a single card at Family Dollar, and those two are my favorite from the new minicons, so i had to grab them...

    I came into this thread expecting to have the chance to buy a few of the 5 or 6 Japanese exclusive Microns that I need.

    But we have very different definitions of "every single minicon".

    i did state that
    sorry man...

    i had always intended on buying a bunch of the random japanese repaints, especially of the two sabers, but i never found them for the price i wanted... and now they all seem to go for a ton of money... only japanese set i got was the purple seateam to go with my Micron Legend Shockwave...

    I'm looking for the Walmart exclusive repaints (in tins) of the Race Team (the one where the rally car is white).

    Plus a few Japanese ones.
    I'd really Like the repaint Adventure team that came out in China but I suppose that's a very unlikely find.

    If anyone reading this has that sort of thing for sale.

    If anyone's got a random black Dumptruck repaint (from the 12 pack) I need that too - mine is faulty and has a fractured leg - but due to the rarity of the set I didn't want to take it back when the other 11 toys were fine.

    I'm also looking for some of the ones sold in 2 packs - especially the minicons sword team painted to look like Thrust, Sunstorm & Ramjet. & the (mostly) Grey (type 1 mold) Emergency team also sold in those twin packs.

    I already have the individual Military planes, and the land military types, and the yellow destruction team repaints.

    I think aside from those most of my major gaps are the japanese ones.
