I need to find the guy who's in charge of naming the minicons and buy him a drink. Or ten. He deserves it.

Probably wont happen. RID hasnt been doing cross redecos all that much. The most interesting one they did was simply having grimlick G1 coloured. I wouldnt expect any redecos into different characters from this line.

If anything AoE Scorn would have been the dead ringer for a Beast Wars Megs :BOT:

Not really. That line even had it's own T-Rex mold.

I dont get the need to redeco everything into anything that has some semblance. Arent we sick of redecos?

There are great versions of BW Megs out there, better than anything suggested here. If anybody wants a decent beast wars megs, get those.

If it is a good mold and it works for more than one character, than I don't mind repaints/retools. Combiner wars has overdone it a bit, but that's not a full deterent. also, we must remember that there are only so many ways transformers can transform and many of them share transformations or alt modes.

That being said, this does look like a great mold. it is very similar to the warrior but a bit different, and they did an awesome job with Grims energon parts as a t-rex head. I really like it :BOT:

well remember Takara did repaints of CW Blackjack & Groove as Runabout & Override! with RID packaging & stickers(those scanning type ones for the RID android game)

so it's in the realms of possibility for Takara to do one! but they probably would have to make at least SOME cosmetic changes! i just don't think he could be accepted if you JUST repainted him the BW Megatron colours.

but like William said....i don't think it'll ever happen.

Fellow Seibertronians, hot on the heels of the in-hand images, and the video review of Grimlock vs. Back Mini-con Battle Pack, we have a review of the RID Mini-con Battle Pack Bumblebee vs. Major Mayhem from fellow Seibertronian chuckdawg1999. Check out the review and leave your thought in the comments below.

chuckdawg1999 wrote:Those of us who have been around for awhile know that when Hasbro introduces a new line, the first wave or so really isn't indicative of the overall series. Such is the case with the Minicon Battle Packs. Bumblebee is a smaller, pocket sized version of the Warrior Class figure, with a few additional ball joints. The armor comes together nicely both in the combined weapon mode, and attached to bumblebee. Major Mayhem is a cool name but these new Minicons just don't do it for me.

Am I the only one who looks at the Cyclone Minicons and immediately thinks of Bakugan?

The last 5 pages of comments seem to indicate you are not.

Alright then, not sure whether to be happy or scared that I remember Bakugan exists, and that I still have my entire Bakugan collection. But yeah, I might get some Cyclone Miniconsjust because they remind me of Bakugan so much.

well for anyone who's interested(although i highly doubt it) here's a mockup repaint i found of what a possible BW Megs could've looked like(although i still say it would also need some retooling as well as just a repaint to make it more accurate)
