a nice team, looks bla combined as the skyboomb shield but its jokes when held by my smolder figure or my leadfoot. if you can find them pick them up
finally a defensef combiner team.
The skyboom shield must be the best combination for minicons. I give this a 10 because everything looks cool about them.
minicons are cool however strange,''in a good way.''some minicons are just plain $#!!.my favorite out of every minicon would have to be grindor.I dont really think that they are really hard to lose.
Car modes rock, bot modes don't rock, very experimental all around, seeing skyboom on the show then looking down at my skyboom brings a tear to the eye, can't they ever be show accurate?! *tear*
Mirage is teh only one that looks good, but no articulation. DB is good idea, love rally cars but bad execution. DS is ugly. Whats with the mudgrip tires? Sheild/plane (make up yer mind) is cool but doesnt stay together.
VERY AWSEOME sky boom looks very cool
Hasbro, you had made worst mini- con team I had ever bought! Why does DB's head keep coming off? Now if the "Skyboom" is a sheild why does it look like a plane! Huh, huh!
All car modes are cool. Downshift marginally stinks in robot mode. I don't like the fact that mirage is an early series recolor of swindle. Dirt Boss has good robot mode, best of the three. Skyboom is a neat plane, though it looks incapable of flight.
These minicon s are great they have good transformations. Mirage doesnt stay on well as the skyboom sheid. Other than those minor details these mini cons are one of the best.
I like them, Shield (like aircraft mode?) interesting concept.
cool sheld. downshift is hard to ceep on thoug.
These three wonderful mini-cons create one ofe the best of mini-con defenses. The Skybloom Shile/Plane is just great. Every transformer toy has had its own flaws. Dont' downgrade this one just for that.
This is the best looking team in it's package! Then... you open it up. Sheild falls apart too easy, and only prime or Megs can hold it without falling over. Also, repaint? I stopped collecting SW figs because I didn't need a sixth Chewbacca! New molds!
A must have!!!
Got 2 sets of these, repainted the one (change grey to silver and yellow to gold. you'll be AMAZED!) and keeping it as a shield. Repaint and glue together and stick on Starscream! OK team, not bad. Got 8 because the recolored shield looks awesome!
Repaints zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz oh! I'm sorry, Was i snoring?
Very nice mini-con team but every time i try 2 seperate all 3 of them from skyboom sheild mode downshift's legs allways break off but over all very nice set but i cant say i reccomend it, well 4 beginers that is.
Dirt Boss: Great concept, poorly executed. DB's wings are fragile, and his leg kept falling off. Assuming that everything held together, though, he and the shield would be decent. Mirage one-up's Swindle. Downshift's arms are funky, but still cool
Mirage- For what is meant to be a sleek racing car, this toy feels chunky and awkward.I hate the paint on his face. Downshift- Cool car, once again awkward robot. Dirtboss- The savior! His Wing-chun style arms and action legs makes for cool poses.awseome.
What good is a sheild that falls apart? If I was in a fight I'd hold just Sideswipe in front of me, not this peice. No superize they fall apart! Downshift looks like a messed up monkey, any relation to Primal? EVILMUS PRIME
WHY DO MINI-CONS KEEP FALLING APART! Swind...I mean Mirage's arms, downshift's legs they go back on but still! Dirtboss is ok but his head is to small. On the bright side the weak sheild/plane is Smokescreen's saving grace!
At least thee robots look like robots unlike many minicons that have been brought out. Sky boom is a good idea though it would be nice if his final form was a little more solidecspecially coz mirage likes to fall off alot.
If this isn't the bottom of the Minicom barrel, folks, it's pretty close. Terrible yellow/gray paints and really dubious robot forms. The Skyboom shield could have saved the set, but it looks more like a kitbash of an airplane than a shield. A shame.
