Minibots Megapost

This post ended up being delayed by a change of lightbox midway through- you should see the changes
  Back in the 80s, the minibots were packaged in blister-packs- that is to say, a molded clear plastic "blister" on cardboard backing with artwork a lot like THIS:

Minibots and Deluxes are sold now in a more secure variation of blister packaging

They were cool, they were the least expensive, and they were fond memory makers. over time, some of these characters were remade, some countless times, and some got bigger. They evolved, they transformed(yep, said it)

Recently Hasbro gave some of the old minibots some love, and is still doing it. so I thought I would show some of what is out there from Hasbro and others

IGears versions of Beachcomber, Brawn, and Huffer

all three are very true to their G1 appearance, and very cool
Igears products are a joy to have, particularly with the bios they
add to the packaging
Bumblebee, Swerve, and Tailgate are new- Windcharger was from 2010
as part of the reveal the shield line, and was rare as hens teeth to find due to
under-ordering on his wave of toys

Swerve, the Motormouth from IDW comics

Oh, Bumblebee, you have been so many things, to so many people...

Also brought to you by IDW comics- Tailgate- who was originally a repaint of...

Windcharger, who I'm pretty sure was my first transformer
Cosmos- not this Cosmos

or this one

you have seen him before here

Warpath, upscaled from minibot to deluxe

and Powerglide- Hasbro just teased a new Powerglide, which may
replace this XTransbots version on my shelf

he made this list: (not 100% work-safe)
