    Just wondered if there had been any confirmation of the continuation ok the Microbots Series by MakeToys. I hear so much about the Mini Warriors line by iGear but none of the Microbots Series. I love the size of Hover & Bomber next to my Universe 2.0 Minibots and would love if they'd fill in the blanks and do Windcharger, Tailgate, Hubcap, Huffer, Pipes, Swerve and Gears. So anybody know?

    Now that you mention it, no i haven't heard anything...
    Which is fine by me! Move on to Computron!
    Edit: I did just see a repaint of powerglide into the blue cobra (gi joe) plane out on chingmung though, so maybe they still have plans.

    It looks like TFsource is expecting to get some in early 2013. They have a preorder up for them right now.

    I'd like to see how these scale with th Igear Mini-warriors since at this point it doesn't look like Igear will be re-releasing Rager and Spray other than the repaints and limited number exclusive.

    Are you saying TFSource has new listings for new figures from the Microbots Series? That'd be awesome. Ofcourse I'd be happier if Hasbro did the rest of the Minibots in Legends scale to go with those already released.

    Bumper would be nice so would tiny Throttlebots or tiny Triggerbots.

    Well, if nobody knows of any confirmation one way or another, what would be a better way of finding this out?

    I've spoken with the man in charge of MT and he told me that Bomber and Hover were just created because he never really like the bigger Universe and HFTD version that came out for them. So he made these to replace those toys on people Classic shelf. And as far as I know, no plans for more Mini bots for now.

    Thanks for the info. That is unfortunate to hear. Maybe down the line they will be inspired to do more.

    Yes thanks for the info...I for one, would really like a continuation because they actually did legends scale...by the time iGear is done their minibots are going to be Voyager sized and cost $110.99 each...

    @Jigga maybe you could whisper to your contact that it my be a good idea to create a interest survey/poll on a few boards to see if customers would actually prefer to buy their scale of minibots
