    Note that they have Mini-Con symbols instead of Autobot or Decepticon symbols. The packaging on the slides at Botcon say "Armada Series" where most say "Classics Series".

    Nice...

    This is why I'm so done with minicons...just too many, too ugly, and too "cheap" looking/feeling.

    Wow, so it's pretty much the first US version of a Micron Booster, that's cool. I might pick this up if I run accross it. Too bad it doesn't have another recolored Energon/Star Saber team in there. I'd totally go for that.

    I know. I love minicons. But kmart is such a horrible place. The only reason I'd pass on these is because it just would be to much trouble to mill around k mart in september for a mini con set.

    I pretty much liked all of the classics minicons but passed on the air team.
    would have bought that to if it was'nt for the flimsy looking dragon.

    SkyHammer looks like the Cobra A10 Tank Killer jet.

    The only one I care about is Skyhammer. I'll have to see about picking it up from someone here or from eBay.

    Hmm, now that I'm looking at the set, they left out both of the all beast sets. I know one became the Shatter Universe Predicons, but what about the Dinobot team? Maybe another exclusive somewhere down the line?

    *Crosses finger that they are repainted like G1 versions*

    Good thing I actually have access to one of the, what, five K-Marts still in existence? :p  Looking forward to these but they're not going to be a very high priority.

    I wonder if we're going to see the other six Classic Mini-Con beasts used later on. G1 Dinobots versus... I dunno. Pretender Beasts? Predacons... again? Something new?

    Yeah that's a really nice touch.

    I'm positive I'll get these guys. Some of those molds are pretty finnicky and fragile, but dammit I'm still a sucker for Minicons.

    So these are being released under the Universe banner as well? While I don't care to shop @ K-Mart either, I'll definitely stop there come Sept. to pick these up!
