Japanese repaints of the Classic Mini-Cons.

Part of the images are missing for me on ACToys so you may want to try TFW2005 for the full pics - http://www.tfw2005.c...ve-min-con.html

It all began in '84. Kept on rollin' in '85. The pieces were in place in '86, and it came to an end in '87. But now it comes, and here we go. Transformers is here again. Nothing's gonna stop it 'cause it's 1988!

Sweet. And it looks like they use the G1 logo. Bought.

I'm not sure exactly why they keep getting pegged as an exclusive yet...

With the little group we have here, they aren't exactly off the same mold and they weren't sold together during the Classics run.

I think we might have a look at the first few of a whole new Micron Booster box.

(think/hope are interchangable in that last sentence)

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Micron Boosters usually have the instructions outside of their baggie. When they're sealed inside with the toy that's usually indicative of an exclusive.

Well, they are typically black bagged, that's true. I thought the instructions were also in the bags...it's been a while since I cracked a box open.

Not bad, but nothing cool enough going on there color-wise or mold-wise that I'd feel the need to really get them at Japanese exclusive prices. Thank God the dump truck looks bad in terms of paint applications as it always does, and doesn't look like G1 Wide Load. Then I'd probably have to get it.

Like the first paint job it was in, the backhoe reminds me of Repugnus again.

I would buy the cop in a flash, love that mold. However, it'll probably be way too expensive to justify.
