    We only ever had one picture with ports shown, but they should. It would be silly to make Minicon ports but then make them incompatible (but it still happens sometimes...). The weapon modes should have 5mm handles too, although how far up the handle they can hold might vary (and the scale may or may not be to your taste).

    They have been to this point. IIRC back when they were working on Armada Optimus they specifically mixed and matched between the original Armada Sparkplug and their own in promo pics to show the compatibility.

    EDIT: Here is the image. Recent modern official Micromaster, Armada Sparkplug, FH Sparkplug.

    And there it is.

    Bipod mode is neat but I'm still not fully feeling it. Shield and sword look way better to me.

    I'm hoping color will help it.

    Why would a van be part of a racing based team?

    They aren't mainstream, but there are racing minivans.

    I will wait for reviews.

    Fans Hobby 15A (Power?) Naval Commander is the only Fans Hobby thing I own, and I absolutely despise touching the Corona Sparkplug Mini-Con it came with.

    Wonder if these will feel better in hand than a potato chip/Fans Hobby Sparkplug, lol.

    I will gladly buy that Sparkplug Mini-Con off you if you’re not interested in it!

    That deep purple on the Speed Chaser Team is a touch too much clash for my taste, but the other teams look nice. If they kept the shield shell, I could go for all of these. In fact, that would not mind being clear, far more palatable than the blade of the sword.

    Speaking of, I'm holding out for a standalone non-clear edition of the star saber.

    As for the blaster, I'm not feeling it. It's accurate but it also feels like it's abusing the definition of a gun.

    The shell is probably the best compromise possible. I like it.

    I would've preferred a re-imagining of the individual robot modes, though. Cartoon accuracy to the weird AEC designs is not a plus in my book.

    We could've had a much-closer-than-Siege GoBots Crasher!

    I don't know which word he intended, but I think he meant something along the lines of redeisgned robot modes based on the rest of his comment.

    Maybe he meant “reimagining” and it autocorrected em?

    Auto-correct continues to be both a blessing and a curse.
