Swelter is a lot less awesome than his art implies...

Forth's an amusing little roly poly gremlin, though.

Is there any indication that these minicons also have an extra energon animal you can do?

If not, I guess I will just stick to the first 2 waves and then go with the weapon ones.

I was just going to ask the same thing, but seeing as how Slipstream is a repaint, the energon parts are exactly the same. I'm not sure if it will be possible, unless his lion head armor forms the head of a new animal. In which case, that would be some true technical designing genius, and a lot of forethought.

Additionally...though Swelter is pretty much a repaint of Divebomb, his energon parts on the arms are slightly different. So I guess we wont know until somebody gets these in hand, or Hasbro tells us something.

So, looks like Drift's team is all set for some dead-of-winter action... in the continuity where we know TF's don't function well in extreme cold...

Forth looks like a great little figure, and if they ever show up near me I'll army-build him, but...Back and Forth.

BACK AND FORTH.

Whoever is doing the names for these guys seriously needs firing.

I though it was really funny and cute.

I hope one of the Hammer minicons is just called "Time".

At least fire the platinum guy before the naming guy,

I just instantly thought of Buck in Ice Age 3 and got a chuckle out of it.

these are dumb. Why couldn't we have better Arms micron Figures/accessories?

I think these are way better than the arms microns we got before.

How does this look like an octopus (speaking of looking dumb):

And remember these? I would rather we dont go back to this:

But if you liked them, thats cool.

I kinda get the sentiment, at least the microns made epic weapons, if the mini-cons at least had ball-jointed shoulders and thighs, I'd like them way more :(

Look at that Bumblebee in this pic and it's weapon mode and letme know if it looks epic to you.

hint hint, its not

Also, while the octopus did make a decent pile driver weapon for Frenzy and Rumble, you only got one per figure. I cannot express how much that blows.

I love the names. they are getting some good ones (and some good jokes) in there. Lest we forget Hammer and Anvil :D :MAXIMAL:

Eh, I dunno. If Back and Forth were sold together it wouldn't bother me so much, but them being sold separately kinda kills the joke.

As for the naming guys, there are still some seriously terrible names for some of these guys. Lord Doomitron would be bad enough for a Big Bad, but for a Minicon? :BANG_HEAD:

Hammer and Anvil on the other hand is great.

It kinda reminds me of armada terradive - who was awesome... til the soft plastic cracked where the claw attaches to the body :BANG_HEAD:

They weren't all great, but they were refreshingly different, and they look a lot cooler than the dumb, upcoming sword mini-con and his doofy face chillin' on the side of the sword.

Of all the galleries to start up a fun discussion on the ol' Energon Pub, these were not the ones I thought would accomplish that. Four more to go and then it's on to the 4 2-Pack Battle Packs.

Hammer and Anvil= Blacksmithing. Iron work. Specifically a lot of heat and then brutal beating.
