    Wow, these Minicons certainly have a different aesthetic than ones we're used to, huh?

    They look pretty nice, although a bit less impressive close-up than they did in the package, I have to admit...

    But a MYTHIC MINICON TEAM! HUZZAH!

    Hey, these new guys are from 3-packs, like the others we've seen, right? So unless the new guys come in a mis-matched dragon-jet-bike dual-faction(the bike we can see is a con, the jet a bot) 3-pack, then wouldn't that mean that theres potentially 6 more of these guys we haven't seen yet?? Oh, the possibilities...

    J-j-joy....gas...gasm...

    I still remember, many Botcons ago, when the Hasbro Panelists looked a little surprised at the loudness of "MORE MINICONS!!" Part of me hopes we're now seeing the payoff, in a way. :D

    Absolutely. I think someone pointed out once that most of the Micromasters had screws where the pegs would be most likely to go, but it doesn't seem like it'd be that difficult a remold. At least some of them, and either way you'd think it would be cheaper than a completely new mold...I would especially love to see the combining Micromasters come back as Minicons.

    These things look neat. A few look a little ungainly, but most of them seem fine. I'll get 'em all no doubt.

    Great Pics! Thanks S250.
    I am really racking my brain here but there was that list of upcoming minicons that came out awile ago that had something along the lines of "flying dino" on it.
    Well from what I can remember most of those have now come to light here with the exception of the boat and cat that were mentioned plus a few more I can't recall. I am going to search for that thread. Also willing to bet the boat goes with the Autobot plane and the cat goes with the dragon sets.
    The T-Rex has a similar headsculpt to Cruellock/Doomlock.

    I say the jet needs to be colored gray, and be called Leader 1. :)

    Aren't all Mini-Cons called Leader-1? :lol 

    I'm loving these. Yes, some robot modes look odd, but I think that fits past Mini-Con's aestetic (sp?).

    My favorites so far are the T-Rex (Terrorsaur) and the jet, who I can't help but think belongs with G2 Manta Ray and Leadfoot. :D 

    P.S: MORE HASBRO! MORE! MORE NEW MOLD MINI-CONS!

    Well, if he had been in the Armada cartoon, his name would have been Leader 1, along with all the other minicons.

    Edit * Damnit, Airfox beat me to the joke.

    Well, since I'm here, I might as well jabber it up. It's almost as if the Beast era guys are taking another trip through time to mix it up with the Classic bots and cons. Alligences aside, we've got:

    Megatron X2 (T-Rex and Dragon)
    Jetstorm
    Thrust
    Terrorsaur
    Obsidian
    Scavenger (formatted to an Earth construction vehicle)
    Tankor (formatted to an Earth tank)
    And a triaceratops that could possibly pass for Rhinox

    It's "aesthetic", but I only say so because you asked :)

    I remember that Minicon listing. Here's a thought. The boat goes with either the plane of the cycle, or maybe all three go in one pack, but the cat? A sphinx. Or some other mythologically related cat.

    But I'm gonna day-dream he's a sphinx, to fit in with the dragon.

    I'm still in partial shock over that. A dragon Minicon. How cool is that? Especially in the same day I find out there's AWESOME Dino Minicons coming.
