Snarl, Overbite, and Dreadwing Minicons

Feel free to discuss anything about any of the thousands of Transformer toys here. Anything from Generation 1 all the way to the soon to be released, the never to be released or the hope to be released is fair game! Want to show off your stuff? Please post your's and see others in the Transformers Collections Forum.

Just because. Call it a whim.

But to balance it out, I DID also get some of the Cybertron repaints of original minicons - the two-packs.

They havent been available in our contry (the UK) and I cant see me ever getting them if they were. Frankly I think Micromasters were better than your average Minicon...

Looking at them... no. Not in my opinion.

The average Micromaster had one-piece shins and feet, virtually no articulation, and hugely visible hinges and such. Most of the Armada era minicons are quite articulated, have better proportioned alt modes, and decent to cool loking robot modes, that don't look like, for example, a plane standing up with its nosecone folded back and engines pulled down.

IMO some of the best Armada period Minicons were basically (what I like to call) 'Micromasters TNG'.

My Overbite's hind legs are on backwards. Either that, or they're backwards in the picture on the card.
