    It would be cool if they had a Wooly Mammoth minicon for Sludge. Even a garage company mini-con version of Sludge i'd be all over.

    I'm digging the repaint colors, they look very G1 ish. The swoop is good and I figured that they were gonna take the tiger mini-con and use it for this team. $20 is a little steep- I think the original 3-pack was like 8 bucks at most?

    No, it still has the one-piece rotor. A shame, because it would have helped with balancing issues in robot mode. I wonder if the UK version will be the only version with the folding blades?

    How about using "Slag" for the US release and "Snarl" for the UK release? That way everyone's happy.

    The "I want hugz" Swoop is cute and funny. ^^ The Grimlock actually is quite good. The other 2 i can pass.

    I love the way swoop is mistransformed.

    Interesting how they've now changed the names. i thought they were going to be called Grimock, Slagg, Swoop and Snarl?

    These repaints look even better than expected, especially Grimlock and Swoop.

    BBTS posted another "Shared Exclusive" in the form of the "Classics" Deluxe Optimus Prime and Deluxe Megatron 2-pack....

    Shared Exclusive Optimus Prime Vs. Megatron Battle Pack - Transformers 2010 - 2011 Transformers Exclusives

    The hell?

    Also, the front page article appears to have posted the available images incorrectly. It is showing some double images and missing a few? I'd attach them to this post but that feature appears to have been removed and I am too lazy (right now) to post them via my photobucket. :(

    Just got this email from BBTS regarding the Legends 4-pack-
    Guess that's one mystery solved.

    Not the G1 Dinobots after all. Although Catilla could be G1 Catilla.

    Is that really Swoop's head or am I not seeing something?

    With Shout! releasing Beast Wars soon, I really want to get Wreckloose and Rhinox (missed them the first time around).

    They look much better than I thought they would. Then again I'm sure that the toys will differ from the toys themselves.
