You'll need to first scale up the whole bunch (plain ol' scale tool)
Then use "Transform each" to scale down each object around its own centerpoint.
Or vice versa "first down then up".
Do the math in-between to get the scale factor.
YES!! Thank You!!
tho you'd think there'd be an easier way...

Are you talking about objects that already have equal spaces between them? If so, use the Distribute Spacing function in the Align palette. You can specify the desired horizontal/vertical distance between an array of objects.
