The Minicons are here!
Be sure to visit the new Minicon section of HMW here to acquire some new companions for your Transformers. You can select your Minicons based on the abilities you want and even name each one of them.

Get them while they last because they won't be this easy to get forever!

HMW news typically doesn't make it out of its own forum, so thanks for helping to spread the word. ;)^

HMW news should always make it outside of the forum when it's big enough. You guys can help by submitting news at http://seibertron.com/contact/index.php?subject=news

I would also like to promote this on the homepage. Anyone got a spotlight and feature image for the image and maybe a quick write up that fits the standard spotlight / feature text? One of the admins will put it up on the homepage to help promote this.

Wow, looks like the Minicons got a restock.

Well, I guess that's a good thing, considering I just lost five of them in missions. Seriously, these things die wayyyyyyyy too easily! :lol:

First Steelhide, then Shatterblast. If your Minicons didn't die so easily I might have a sense of satisfaction now. :lol:

Hey, it ain't my fault that the Deflectors and the Hoppers suck! :lol:

Seriously, of the four types I tend to loose those two the most. I still find Electrum useless against Battle Blades and my 'Bots accuracy is just as bad as it always was: Can't hit the broad side of Unicron for the life of 'em. :P

I think I'll just stick with the Sparklers and Lifters. My air and land animals actually seem to benefit from the FRP and STR boosts. XD


EDIT: *finally* my namesake does something! Sparklers FTW!

Whst's the point of having them customizable if they're just going to die? Seriously a huge waste of my 160k that took a year to save

I think the Minicons would work better if they didn't die when your bot goes into statis lock. It is a nice idea but what is the point of paying large sums of energon for something that could only be used maybe once. I think the Minicons should disconnect when the bot's health drops below a certain point (like in the Atari game).

Ithink it could be better, if destroyed mini-cons would go into a "mini-con CR chamber", that needs to be set manually, and costs more than normal CR (about 1/5 of the mini-cons original cost)

Well, I have two more minis to waste (plus one Electrum-creator equipped)

The best armor in the game, it bascally would need 8 rank to equip, the mini gives you 10 packs of it.
