    I just put up my Cybertron display after it's been in storage for a while. I have a lot of Cybertron Mini-Cons, but so few of the Cybertron toys have Mini-Con ports. Which larger Transformers have a good amount of ports?

    Metroplex, obviously. Vector Prime has forearm ports which are great for arm-mounted missile launchers or melee weapons.

    Any suggestions? Thanks!

    Really all three of the gigantian bots.

    Quickmix, Menasor, and Metroplex have tons of ports.

    The cybertron defense versions of red alert, hot shot, and Scattorshot have at least two ports each.

    Dark Crumplezone I think has one in vehicle mode. Also Cybertron Downshift can have minicons on his blasters. Cybertron Longrack, Demolishor, Deluxe galaxy force optimus Prime, and Buzzsaw have minicon ports because their redecoed and retooled Armada Toys.


    Armada Red Alert is a little underrated, but its a hefty bot, that can have six minicons looking good on him in robot mode. It also had a more recent redeco as allspark power Inferno.

    Primus has a few as well, and of course smaller robots look great just standing around in his presence.

    Ebay:
    Unicron (Armada, Energon, Takara 2010, Amazon) all have 24-27
    Cybertron Metroplex has over 10.
    Armada Megatron/Galvatron/Megazarak has over 10 also.
    Combined form of Armada Optimus/Overload has a lot also.

    Others if you mess around include Cybertron/Takara Primus, Cybertron Defense Red Alert.

    Thanks for the suggestions! I have a few Universe 2008 CybDef repaints, but I forget about those molds when thinking of Cybertron.

    I always have tons extra standing around. It's fun to have some Mini-cons in robot mode. Also, I think it's funny having Mini-cons hanging off of Unicron and Primus.

    Another question: I've read that there were some exclusive Takara Mini-Cons that were designed to go with larger Galaxy Force toys:

    Platinum Micron - Leobreaker

    Caliber Micron - Wing Saber

    Hellflame Micron - Scourge

    Megalo Micron - Metroplex

    Were there any more of these? I'd love to get of any these, but they seem hard to track down.
