    Another one found and listed.

    Also Skyhammer, though not technically a variant, it has been assemble wrong!

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=150556319724&ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT




    One for Mini-con fans or completists!

    These are from the K-mart exclusive Universe 12 pack, blind-packed with 'energon fizzy sweets' and supposedly found only in the UK.

    More info here:

    Transformers Universe: Mini-Con sweet figures.

    What makes Bodyblock rarer is that he is a partial redeco, the leg section/suspension part is orange instead of reddish-brown.

    ...Your kidding? UK exclusive? These minicons have been shelfwarming KMarts with the exclusive multi packs and then again in the Dollar General/Family Dollar individually repacked in Universe 25th packaging. Does putting them in a plastic baggie with nasty candy make them that much different?

    That one in particular has a different colour chassis or something from the "normal" one. So I guess it counts :lol

    I've not had chance to see if blight is different as a motorcycle or if the police car has any colour differences I have few though.

    The little Dragon is cute and is a completely different shade of green to previous ones and the helicopter has folding rotors unlike any other one and is also a different colour.

    I don't own Blight and i'm not sure where my orignals from the boxed set are to compare them yet.

    My Blue A-10 was assembled upside down though rather amusingly.
