Hasbro called them the "Adventure Team" because they're pretty non-sequitor. I don't get how these guys tie in with each other at all. But no matter....
Vehicle form is really where these guys shine. A decent amount of detail and some moving "action" parts make these a solid deal. Hmmmm....now that I think about it though, Dune Runner's moving gun turret looks like a wagging tail, Ice Berg's snow claws don't close as much as wiggle and Ransack's kind of like Smokescreen's ass (with the tow line deal). Anyway, solid looking little vehicles.
Robot form I have a beef with. All of them you can see the gears on their chest. With the Destruction Team, only Dualor had the open chest. I think that Hasbro should of spent more time trying to hide the chest gear. Oh, and Ice Berg looks like he's going out for Halloween. And Ransack doesn't have a head, just a face. There's a difference.
Adventure Team looks pretty sharp as vehicles, loses a notch in robot mode and evens out with their gimmick moving parts. Maybe it's just me, but I think that the last set of Mini-Cons were better. Race Team excluded.
