New WALMART Minicon Exclusives, ScoutTwo-Packs, And More

Ebay seller Tfctoys has revealed some interesting new goodness for us to discuss and eventually hunt for.

In a post on TFW, Tfctoys revealed images of ROTF Arcee's bio and tech specs. But also this seller revealed Walmart exclusive scout versus two-packs, which coincidentally are just repackages of the scouts released exclusively at Target for the first movie.

And finally, tfctoys shows an image of a new minicon 10-pack, not the same minicon 10 pack from Kmart last year, no this one has the same molds, has a Universe style package, but has new paint jobs, and new character names.

You can check out the original thread here, and the downloaded images below.

If they are going to re-release these Target Scouts why don't they start with the unreleased Reverb, Gunbarrel and Backtrack Scouts? Or give us the Cybertron Backstop mold as someone like Headstrong or Ramhorn?

Still, I suppose a couple people will want Hardtop and Storm Surge to be their Shattered Glass Beachcomber and Seaspray.

I like the minicon set & ill be getting it. Arcee im still on the fence about. Right now im saying no. I know my friend is going to get her (if its a bike TF he gets it) so once i see it in person and try it i may change my mind.

I could hear CP's Minicon OCD kicking in from across the US.

I think I'll be buying the Minicon set and Arcee and I may consider the Scouts seeing how I missed them last time.

Scouts, awesome. Totally getting the Air Raid surge. Been wanting that mold for so long. And Sicne I don;t have any version of the Storm Surge mold, its a win win.

The other 2. I do like Hardtop. Clocker, not so much. But I might get them anyway.

The news post says the minicon 12 pack are all the same molds as the K-mart 12 pack... Looks to me like it's all the Classics minicions that weren't in the K-mart version... Or is there a second K-mart set that i don't know about? :-?

I missed Clocker the first time around, and have wanted another Skyblast mold for a repainting project.. Guess I'll just have to sell off the 2 Cons :?
The opinions expressed in this post are well-reasoned and insightful.
Needless to say, they are not those of SEIBERTRON.COM, its staff members, or any other site lackeys.
Anyone who says otherwise is itching for a fight.

Pretty solid proof that the Armada Mini-Con molds are just dead at this point. Two exclusive sets with nothing but classics repaints.

The minicons with vehicle alt modes were in the K-Mart 12 pack, the beast ones were not.

I've taken a shine to minicons, so I may just pick this one up. Gives my Universe Unicron some company attached to his outer ring.

Interesting name assignments for those minicons... an Autobot named Ransack? A Decepticon named Crosshairs? Not really feeling those Mini-Dinobot repaints, but the Mini-Predacons are definitely going into Legend-Razorclaw's miniature army.

And naming a Minicon Taxi "Overcharge"? Win.

I'm digging the dark blue Clocker. Not to mention that it comes with a mold I don't mind getting a third of (it's Cyb Hardtop, right?). Hope it's cheap, goddamn ROTF scouts are $13 each here.

After rounds and rounds, it will be pretty hard not to own some of these minicons/scouts now.

I'd rather see some clear figures though. Clear Reverb is my fav. I also like the clear Energon Saber a lot.

I always meant to pick up Clocker and Air Raid, but never did. Unfortunately, I DID buy Hard Top and Storm Surge, so I'm not about to buy them again just to get Air Raid and Clocker. Oh well, no big loss.

Those mini-con repaints are sweet, though! I passed on the K-Mart repaints (I have the original versions of all of them), but these repaints look like really cool colors!
