A few interesting auctions have appeared on TaoBao today, namely some new, in package Minicons, based on the Cybertron Recon Team and Giant Planet Team, as well as Classics molds. We see some single carded Minicons, as well as new eight pack, similar to the shared exclusive 12-pack and 10-pack from the last two years. Interestingly, the 8-pack features multiple languages, making it likely this is European packaging. It is unknown if any of these are exclusives at this point, but as find out information, we'll keep you updated.

Check them out here:

Eight Pack, featuring Buckshot, Ironside, Barrel Roll, Iron Claw, Diveplane, Airlift, Heavy-Liftor, and Reachout

Swashplate? What kind of a name is that?! He looks like R2D2 with bits stuck on.

At least the silliness of the names is now on par with the simplicity of Japanese Micron names.:P

Let me complete the list with the boxset:

Reachout: repaint of Cyb. Giant Planet Team Longarm

Let me check the list of how many times each mold has been used already...

What's up with Swashplate's helicopter mode? It looks alright packaged, but the photo on the back is just absurd looking. Can his head/cockpit turn around?

It can. Mistransformations on packaging images is fairly common.

The thing I don't like about the names is the redundancy:

Iron Claw
Ironside

Airlift
Heavy-liftor


That said, I love the names Barrel Roll, Diveplane, Buckshot, Ironside, Iron Claw, and Brake-Neck.

Also, Brake-Neck would make a great Shattered Glass Crasher.

Drivetrain looks very similar to Guardian Powered, and Heavy-Liftor looks relatively close to Mighty Dozer.

Also, did anyone notice the text: "Mini-con robots are living power batteries for larger robots." That's awfully cruel, isn't it?
