    (Lame intro) I wasn't around for the Armada/Energon/Cybertron era so I missed out on the coolness that were minicons. I am not finding out how cool they are through Universe releases.(/Lame intro)

    So...What's cooler, Minicons or Legends? And if you feel like explaining...Why?

    You can't go wrong with Minicons.

    But, I really like the Legends that are in scale with the bigger figures. For example ROTF Wheelie or Universe Brawn and Cosmos.

    Legends, for several reasons. They're a bit bigger than minicons, I like how a lot of the recent Legends are G1 characters, and they don't have that gimmick "Make the big bot do something" jive.

    I voted for Legends over Minicons... Legends-Class figures are kind of the current generation of Minibots... Small, but still form a clear robot mode, with robot-looking 'parts'... In my opinion, most of the Minicons robot modes just look like they took the pieces from the vehicle mode and moved them around... A lot of legends figures ecen look like thier larger counterparts!

    i have a few of the minicons (classics repaints etc) but i like the universe legends better (bb, cosmos, warpath etc.) just because they are in scale with the rest of the figures

    Mini-Cons. Best new gimmick in recent years without a doubt.

    Minicons are way cooler, a lot of them can combine, and most of them turn into weapons.

    Definitely Minicons, mostly for being unique characters themselves and not just smaller versions of already-released characters.

    I've always preferred minicons. even if they don't usually have ball hinges like the legends but they at least had unique team names like the old micromaster patrols, gimmicks, character names, and transformations.

    The "night attack" armada team is my favorite. And fortunately quite common for those just exploreing minicons.

    At least with the cybertron legends though, it is neat how closely the legends mimic their higher pricepoint counterparts transformation.

    I voted Minicons, and this pretty much sums up why:

    But I do think both are pretty neat.

    I don't have any Mini-cons, but Legends are pretty fun. So my vote goes to them.

    Legends are great, but I like minicons better. The reason is that legends will always be based on a particular character or mold, while minicons are entirely original. Minicons also tend to get some of the most inspired transformations.

    I have to go with Minicons.

    Outside of 6 universe legends that fit with the classics and ROTF Wheelie, I find Legends not to be my cup of tea.

    On the other hand I enjoy all minicons for many reasons. A couple being combining to larger weapons and robots, individual characters and there are so many unique designs.

    Minicons for me please.

    Thanx

    Legends. They're much more cooler than Mini-cons.

    well im neutral because the small figures i liked best where the partner figures in the universe line both ravage and nightstick here you have the playability between figures but not the whole gimmick taking up too much space in figures
