    Wow, day of the minicons...
    I love the dragon! Or at least I love that they tried to make one, they didn't quite hit the mark perfectly but they get points for the attempt. I'll buy it. And the 15 repaints. :D  Then I can really do a dragon display, that'll be awesome.

    I couldn't find the thread but I did copy the list.:D 


    Flying Dino Vs. Cat
    Backhoe Vs. Treadbolt
    Terrorsaur Vs. Knockdown
    Offshoot VS. Strongarm
    Skyblast Vs. Nightscream
    They were first stated to be Versus packs.
    These were also mentioned;
    Tank
    Helicopter
    Boat
    The Tank we know is Broadside. The copter is Divebomb. Flying Dino must be Swoop and Backhoe is Sludge.
    I am assuming that these are the name for some of the Minicons that were later reveiled. I think the dragon could be Skyblast. It fits anyways, or Nightscream.
    No idea who the rest could be.
    Which leaves us with Windsheer the Autobot airplane? Offshoot-the Decepticon motorcycle? The cat and the boat.
    I believe it was S250 who first posted this list a few weeks ago and apoligized(albeit unnecessarily) for not having pictures to go with them.
    Any thoughts?

    That certainly is a good question if there is at least another 2 packs we have yet to see including the currently unnamed Minicons we have. There is at least enough mini-cons right now for an additional minicon pack composed of the Dragon, Motorcycle, and Jet. However, I believe that Nightscream will be another beast minicon making it a three pack with the Dragon and Cat. The motorcycle, jet, and a third one maybe the boat making up another pack.

    Okay, beautiful alt modes, but the Dragon robot mode in particular looks like ass.

    Is that even possible? I mean, both versions of Highwire already do that.

    judging by all these new Minicons, there seems to a rule saying "Don't make them transform in usual ways!"

    Probably, all Minicons so far have been able to link in alt mode (except Cybertron Laserbeak who doesn't really count).

    (Personally I'd prefer it if more Minicons had "link modes" like the emergancy and Air military teams
