    Hi. Looking over my latest TF purchase - Cybertron Legends Sunstorm - reminded me just how cool the Legends figures really are. In a lot of cases, these little guys are more detailed, better articulated and better engineered than many G1 figures.

    So, I wondered, what Legends class figures (or similar sized - minibots, spy changers, cassettes, etc) have the best articulation and posability?

    I am looking for Autobot and Decepticon recommendations.

    Thanks.

    Jazz, G1 Bumblebee and the redeco Starscream have been some of my favorites in the Legends class.

    I also love the combiners, only because when combined they're about the size of a deluxe bot.

    I love the Jazz. I've recently gotten into the Legends class figures too, with the Target 5 packs. So many neat figures that make shelves look fuller. :D

    All of the last few waves of Legends are excellent and not to be missed. Jazz, G2 Megatron, Hound, Beachcomber, G1 Bumblebee, Brawn, Animated Starscream, Animated Prowl, Animated Prime, Animated Bumblebee, Hot Rod, Cosmos, Warpath, Wheelie. Seriously, get them all. :)

    Does anyone have a full collection that they would share pics of?

    I'd love to see a full Autobots picture and a full Decepticons pic.

    Thanks guys. Good to know that I have most of these somewhere. What about articulation and posability at this scale, though?

    With a bit of patience and some basic modeling tools, you can have super articulated Legends! Making these little guys Legendary fun! (pun intended)!

    Here is my tutorial thread, found right over in the Radicons mini site!

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/tutor...iculating-legends-class-figures-tutorial.html

    And to see the results of a few well thought mods, you can achieve levels of articulation deluxes don't even have! For example:

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radic...us-minimus-phase-3-vortex-update-10-10-a.html

    Enjoy! And give it a try, Legends are affordable enough to experiment with, and the rewards are HUGE!!

    In general, I think all of the newer ones (Universe waves 2, 3, and 4) are probably the best Legends toys. The original Cybertron ones are mostly good, but there's a few duds (CD Red Alert, Optimus, etc). The movie ones are kind of hit-or-miss, too, but there's some true gems there (Scorponok, Barricade, Megatron). However, I've not been dissatisfied with any of the newer G1/Animated-based molds.

    I liked the Movie Legends Classes. They're fun and Prime and Bonecrusher can fight each other without the problems of scale!

    I tihnk the minibots are nice.
