Remember the images of the new and upcoming Mini-Con repaints for the Generations line, the ones with the hilarious names? Do you also remember that the names where so bad and hilarious you wanted, no needed them?
Well now you can, if you live in the US that is!
A member of fellow fansite tfw2005 by the name "thenatureboywoo" has found the single pack Mini-Cons at a Family Dollar in Weston, WV and purchased Pan-Handler, he has photographic proof of his purchase, if you wish to see it just click here and visit his thread over at tfw!

bah, those names are still better than a lot of Micromaster names and even a few G1 names. What's worse is that they never do any repaints of any of the Minicons I want. You'd think with the PowerCore Combiners, they'd want to put out some of the more multifunctional Minicons...y'know, the Emergency Patrol, the Requiem Blaster, Star Saber, Skyboom Shield, those missile launching guys, some of them. Why do you torture me like this Hasbro? Why?! :P

I think those Armada Mini-cons you lust for all have dead casts! Would be unprofitable for Hasbro to make new casts for them and sell them to a relatively small target audience. Off to Ebay for you :P

Because those molds have been used so much that they are now unusable.

That'll teach me to skim read topics, I've just checked the link a little further up :oops:

I was under the impression that the gift-set and the singles were all the same toys, but apparently not.

The gift-set is also in a Euro-box, Tesco I'm looking at you...

Proof that all the cool names aren't taken. :D (For some of these guys, some of the names are rediculus)

Anyway, might have to start hunting for them, and my god, looking at the previous post at these guys, they have STATS for Minicons now? :shock: 8)

My wallet is gonna be so empty that I'll have nothing left for TF3...
