    Optimus

    Bumblebee

    Prowl

    Including a first look at Starscream's bot mode.

    Starscream

    Animated Starscream's design has definitely translated quite well into the smaller Activators and Legends size classes.

    Prowl I will be getting for sure since he is close to being in scale with the others in vehicle mode (but I'm using the deluxe toy for his robot mode of course).

    Starscream is good. Chest piece is lower down than i would have liked but no visual problems as far as Legends go (no elbow or knee articulation is expected).

    I think they look pretty good.

    I liked the Cybertron Legends for the most part, but the movie legends just didn't turn out so well. Between these and the new Universe legends though, it looks like they're getting back in their stride.

    why not, some minicons had elbow articulation why not the slightly larger legends?

    I will be skipping all of these. Universe should be things that are not from animated IMO (apart from Robot heroes).

    I love how even at such a small size they still have buckets of personality. Check out Prowl's headsculpt - that is dead on to his portrayal on the show.

    I know. I have Cybertron Legends Thundercracker (along with his two repaints) in front of me - this mold's knees and elbows don't bend. I'm going to assume that giving the mold that ability would take it over budget or something. Elbow and knee articulation at this size and smaller tends to happen when the transformation requires it.

    I quite like them. It's nice how they even managed the fake roof chest on Bumblebee. Even the larger Activator couldn't do that. Not a fan of all that beige on Prowl. His arms should be all black like on his deluxe - it would make his alt look far better. Prime is great, but that G1-ish transformation has always been solid. And nice that he's got a mouthplate. Odd that Starscream's faction logo is on his chest. I guess it's cheaper than tampoing both sides of his wing so it can be seen in both modes. Pity his face is really off and has that 'beanie' on top of his head.
    I'll buy them all though. :)

    Starscream might look better after a few paint touch ups.

    It will be great

    okay I guess. A couple of dollars more will get the Activators that look better.

    It's too bad Prime doesn't have a complete head (due to his transformation scheme). Otherwise, he would've gotten higher marks in my book.

    I hope Starscream can turn his head, otherwise it'll just be freaky having him staring out the top of his jet mode all the time.

    For some resaon I just hate Starscream's face mold, other than that he's a nice legend. Might pick him up if I see him in stores though

    That Starscream mold would be great for a repaint of the female clone.

    Looking at these made me feel a greater need to bring on Omega Supreme in Animated series.

    Where did that big bot go?? *Looking here & there*
