    I love Prime and I love Minicons. Takara is releasing their Prime figures with minicons that transform into the actual weapons used on the show. Hasbro is giving us Mechtech :( 

    How many people believe that Hasbro will bring over these Prime Minicons for us North American collectors to enjoy?


    Personally I say YES. Hasbro has continuously released Minicon sets since Armada. Minicons have been proven to sell and sell well. 3 Transformers for the price of a scout?? It is a no brainer for parents lol

    I really hope to see these guys come over here to our side of the pond.

    What do you guys think? Yay or Nay?

    I hope they do, but I won't be surprised if they don't. Those are interesting weapons, and I might actually throw cash on some of the Japanese ones because of the transforming weapons.

    They'll get released here as FE, then they'll get downgraded.

    Yes, hopefully. They might release them in a later part of the line, or maybe release them as individual toys?

    If they do do it, it'll probably be as stand alone figures. (Think like botshots)

    I hope so! If they release them in small packages or as seprate figures it'll make up for not having them be included with the main figures!

    I don't care. Minicons are meh to me. They never add anything to the figure. I'd rather have a well designed weapon.

    I'm really hoping for Minicon box sets like we have seen. Since AEC Minicons tend to be released in large boxsets vs the old 3 packs or individually.

    I prefer one stop shopping so Hasbro, give em all to us in one box. Thank you :)

    prolly not and if they do it will be with other figures, which you likely wont want to buy or buy again.

    which is a shame i love minicons ...

    although i think some cyberverse stuff i saw planned for TF prime was to work with clear minicons so there's a chance ... but im not getting hopes up ...

    I hope so since I love how they're based on the individual character weapons from the actual show. But it's not a huge deal if Hasbro doesn't. The minicons are cool and all but not awesome enough to warrant insane import prices, IMHO.
