    I recently acquired a ROTF Legends Megatron and I'm pretty happy with it because of the accuracy of the tank mode and neat transformation. The only other Legends figures I have are: Jetfire (2nd best), Barricade (awesome), Sideways (eh...it's okay), and Starscream (pure utter shitfest, no offense). What are some other good Legends from the ROTF and Hunt for the Decepticons lines? Soundwave, as some of you may know (I talk about him frequently), is my favorite Decepticon but his fig looks kinda iffy.

    The Rotf legends prime is pretty good, and he was released in the last two waves of legends so you can get him at retail no prob. I personally think legends Devastator is pretty awesome, but that's really recommending 7 figures.

    The Twins are actually pretty good. Soundwave isn't bad. I would probably have to go with Legends Devastator. :lol

    Yeah Legends Devastator as a whole is my favorite. Next up would be Optimus Prime, Jetfire, Soundwave and Wheelie. I heard Ravage is good, but I don't have him.

    I'm a big fan of ROTF Legends Wheelie. He's the one who got me into legends figures.

    Soundwave is one of my favorites, actually. He's got elbow and head/neck articulation, and his alt mode is pretty solid (only negative is his head/chest area doesn't quite pull off the solar panel look). And he has a nice amount of colors going on.

    Devastator is worth mentioning, being a 'complete' combiner with the Constructicons all getting their own robot modes. He's fun to combine/transform. You can even make fan-combos since it uses the same type of combination pegs for most connections (i.e. Rampage can connect to Hightower or Scrapper as well as Overload). Articulation is limited, and some of the robot modes are really hindered by needing to combine (like Mixmaster having to drag Devastator's face around in a very awkward place). But, hey, 7 Legends figures in one pack (8 if you count Devy separate)!

    Since you have Jetfire, you may want to get Optimus Prime since they can combine, and Optimus is a neat figure on his own.
    EDIT: As far as I know, Jetfire and OP can only combine with each other, not Devastator/the Constructicons.

    My top 3 favorites are Legends Devastator, Ravage, and Wheelie, in that order. Sideswipe is also pretty decent.

    That seems about right. I don't have wheelie- but I have the other two.

    I've gotta say, Optimus has a great transformation. But Legends Devastator takes the cake.

    Have to say ravage, just b/c he is the only one besides skids that i've purchased, and i got rid of skids quite a while ago. Ravage's legends figure makes more sense than the deluxe to me, just b/c I don't really care what it transforms into b/c its only Legends size.

    Yeah, you guys have me sold on Devastator lol. Looks like I'll have to be buying a few TFs on my b-day. Definitely Leader Starscream, Legends Devastator (if I can find him; pretty rare where I'm at), Legends Ravage, and Legends Soundwave (I changed my mind now, due to a few recommendations).

    From pics alone, I'd say Ravage and Wheelie.

    From ones I actually have in my house, I'd say Megatron and Sideswipe.

    ROTF Legends Ravage for sure is the best.

    Ravage rocks. I really wish we'd get a new movie Starscream Legends.

    i normally don't buy Legends figures (so damn small, i might lose them, lol) but i bought 2 Springer figures.
    I love the alt mode and the bot mode is interesting enough.

    still makes me wonder how a Legends figure can be 10x better than Voyager Incinerator, though.

    Overall, I'd say Devastator.

    Among non-combiners, I'll stick with Springer. It looks awesome in robot mode and the Osprey mode is pretty cool too. The robot mode looks better than Incinerator's, as mentioned above.

    Beyond that, I like Wheelie and have been looking more and more at Ironhide as something I might pickup. Ravage is awesome, Arcee is nice and Soundwave is another that intrigues me.

    I love my Legends, but only when they're on cheapo-sale. £7.99 RRP is bollocks.

    My favourites are Sideswipe and Springer. Sides because his transformation tickled me (feet for grill! Or is that grill for feet?) and his alt-mode is sweeet. Springer because he looks awesome no matter what.

    I really want to get my hands on a Ravage. ;~;
