STREET ACTION TEAM
|Although they look ordinary, these three robots are keys to the MINI mission of all the MINI-CONS. They combine into a robot, showing the strength of teamwork. Their capabilities continue to grow over time, but their real power is in making others discover their true potential. The AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS see the unlimited power hidden beneath their innocent forms and struggle to possess them.|

Toy Review: Quirky. That's what these guys are. Their cartoon depictions aside, I like them. Grindor has a great robot mode, even if a "rocket powered skateboard" is a little off the wall. I had a moped when I was in college, so I really like SureShock, even though his robot mode is just plain lame. High Wire is the homeliest of the bunch. His bike mode looks OK, but his robot mode is just pathetic. As little more than the head for Perceptor, the combined form of these three Minicons, he might as well not exist. I like a robot with wheels on his shoulders as much as the next guy, but I think without High Wire and an extra head on Grindor somewhere, Perceptor would have been just as good. Now that I've mentioned Perceptor, he's not a bad robot. He looks as cool as Grindor does, and by virtue much cooler than High Wire and SureShock. He's not real posable or anything, as parts of him get in the way of other parts. Honestly, the only reason to get this set is for Grindor, and because it's a combiner. Perceptor in the show kick tailpipe, so it's neat to have this character in toy form. I like it, so I recommend it.

Comments: your review just about sums it up imean grindor is excellent and i coundln't put it better myself.. and yes your right the robot modes and vechicular modes of sure shock and high wire are both dumb and lame. the only points i give is for grindor and the fairly nice combatication into the old-school preceptor

Comments: If you buy just one set of the first wave of Mini-Cons, pick up the Street Action Team. Their innovative alt modes and transformations make them a must. And outside of a couple kibble issues, they all look great in either mode.
