Universe Mini-con Blindpacks
Forgive me if these have been around for ages, but they were new to me.

Saw them in the Tescos petrol station at £1.99.

Each one comes with a baggy of 4 fizzy cola bottles and a mini-con. Not a big fan of the toys, but it was fun to buy a couple.

Haven't seen these before. Would be tempted if I didn't already have the twelve pack these guys are from. You got a couple of the better ones if I'm honest.

I wonder if the japanese would regard these sweets with as much suspicion as we regard the 'candy' from their blindpacked toys?

Must admit I'm tempted to pick some of these up.

Re: Universe Mini-con Blindpacks
These are new blind-packs.

They were originally marketed as Hasbro Asia exclusives, but nice to see they've made their way over here. I had heard that only 10 of the 12 originals are avaliable in this blind-pack form, but would be nice to find out.

I need a new Cloudraker, as mine has deffective paint-apps.

360 MiniCons and counting.

I'm pretty sure wherever a minicon is involved theres an overcharge.......

The very existence of flamethrowers proves that some time, somewhere, someone said to themselves, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I'm just not close enough to get the job done.

Re: Universe Mini-con Blindpacks
Bought two today (since Tesco has nothing apart from three Elita-1's and a ROTF Wave 1 Ratchet!)

I got Flatfoot and Heavytread. Not overly impressed with them but two Minicons for the price of a Legends figure ain't bad.

Ouch. They're definitely not the best of the bunch.
