    Price on the Hoist and Trailcutter upgrade sets dropped to $14.99 each. Much more realistic, IMO.

    Thanks for that, I was considering the Hoist add-on but couldn't justify $30 for it. $15 is much more reasonable.

    Eh, the Hasbro one looks good. Why spend $68 on that. After iGears latest minwarriors, I think I am skipping the rest of theirs.

    I missed the Miniwarriors the first time around (and I'm glad I did). I've order the 'Comic Color' Hench and I'm hoping they'll do the rest of the MWs in 'Comic Colors' (ie. what they know they should've done the 1st time) as well. I've learned to buy cautiously with iGear. Wait-and-see mentality.

    iGear did the coneheads and the van brothers right. Some of the miniwarriors are okay, but nowhere near as good as those two.

    The original Hench was based more on the G1 toy look with the arms being solid silver. There are people who want that version too. It's great that you are getting a version you prefer as well, but it's not a case of igear correcting a deficiency in their original version. Hench is awesome. Hopefully, you'll like him as well.

    I agree that the original Hench was good. In fact, I'd be happy with the original had I got him back then and I probably wouldn't order the new one. However, the following MWs colors were off, and arguably intentionally so. That is the reason I'm glad I've waited so that, hopefully, this next round is more color accurate as a whole group, as opposed the first round (not including Hench).
