    None of the Micromaster packs have included blast effects. This one doesn't, either.

    Interestingly these two have switched sides from the original Japanese incarnations

    That's just dude's opinion, everyone in that set is based on an old micromaster, there is no reason for Ricon not to be either.

    I’d have preferred them to have been Autobots but I can accept them as Autobots who become Decepticons.

    I guess they had to do it for balance reasons. Otherwise, it would basically be 8 autobot micromasters ganging up on an duo of decepticon micromasters.

    Wouldn’t be the first time the Decepticons were outnumbered.

    Thanks, was going to try to figure out who was supposed to be who and now I don't have to. Appreciated.

    As much as I like the name cratermaker, I lament the loss of the name powerbomb.

    Yes, that would be where the name came from - but doesn’t mean the character wasn’t intended to be Tote.

    Given Nightflight is a repaint of Visper, I wouldn’t put it past Hasbro to give us a Tote repainted from Highjump albeit with a new name.

    Blue car, maroon SUV :) 

    I'm all about colorful figures. Brunt, for example, is a mostly solid color figure who looks pretty cool in my opinion.

    These? Not for me.

    But for everybody who loves them, awesome!

    Well, i guess here's my take on the minicons.
    Armada Knock-Out from Top-Shot
    Armada Wreckage from Flak
    Armada Oval from Swindler (New head.)
    Armada Spiral from Roadhandler (Hyperdrive tooling, New head.)

    And here's an idea for potential retools with the Battlemaster molds.
    B.2. From Battlemaster Rung (New head)
    O.P. from Firedrive (New head.)

    Come to think of it, I'm surprised that Hasbro didn't used Prime's Arms Microns as part of a multi-pack along with the Siege Battlemasters, then again, Arms Micron figures have more pieces than Siege Battlemasters.

    I’m using the Battle Squad as Mini-Cons since I wanted to avoid using molds already in the first box-set, even if I had to double up on a few of them.

    If more new Micromasters get revealed, I would change the list to accommodate them.

    This set looks great and I'm buying this when it comes out, even if Road Police was included instead of Holi and Wheelblaze can't combine with Roadburner for his vehicle mode. Now where's Holi and Clipper? With Gunlift and Powerbomb from Zone getting updates, the Victory Micromasters are feeling ignored right now.

    So this 10 pack is just straight recolors? Sigh, guess no teams are going to get completed or any new teams with new molds. I guess it takes a lot less effort to just look at the current molds and match up whomever was close enough through whatever paint scheme works. But repaints are just the norm to recoup costs so I don't know what I was expecting, or why it would surprise me, whatever.

    And those Rainmakers, I sure as hell wasn't looking for literally a straight up exact G1 toon colors! Again, I don't know why I was expecting a more stylized color balance than these bland eye sores!

    TBF, some of the characters in that 10-pack were always repaints of someone else in the first place. But I agree that it sucked that they added another member of the Air Strike Patrol, and it's just a repaint. I guess you could say it's Siege's version of the CW Aerialbots, lol. Also they showed off one of the Micromaster Combiners, but then one of the original ones, Wheel Blaze, is just a yellow version of Red Hot. I will definitely get this 10-pack, but I wouldn't be surprised if I get rid of a few of the figures. I know that no matter what certain characters will get the short end of the stick, and that they will just be the typical repaint with a head retool of someone else. I want Hasbro to remake all the original Micromasters, but not if it's going to be CW all over again. As much as I loved that toy line, they absolutely abused the redeco/retool process IMO. I would think small little Transformers would be more above getting retooled over and over again, but I guess not, lol.

    The other thing that sucks is quite a few of these guys had transforming vehicle/bases in G1, which look to be dead... :(

    Red Heat had to be repainted and the original Red Hot has not been repainted at all.

    They are simply not prepared to give everyone a new mold even if they had their own molds in the past.
