    funny enough that they want you to build buildroid micromaster superion to hold both minicon weapons. This is so vaguely connected to yugiohs "-roid" monsters its just a little odd. nice find though.

    On the question "Is there one per magazine?"Yes

    The second ?"Where all three molds available?"The every polybaged magazine had generic box so it's a crap shoot

    Ran to my borders, they didn't have the mag. Here's hoping that they didn't get cleaned out by someone reading this thread.

    And I have a dam coupon for 30% off $10.00 and the mag's $9.99!!!

    It's a "building set", I bought a set in Sofia in summer 2007, it was packaged in a paper box. I paid 1 euro for the set. Plastic quality is more than decent, too bad there are no metal pins anywhere. Transformation is possible and everything connects well, the worse one of the trio is Downshift, which lost 2 important connectors down the road...
