    After 3 years of being a solicited-but-cancelled toy in 2014, Drift & Crosshairs finally gets a Legion Class treatment.

    Hoping for Hound's Legion Class toy though.

    Since Legion Crosshairs' alt mode looks more like a Lamborghini than a Corvette, I've a feeling this is going to be remolded into Hot Rod.

    I was looking forward to this line of figures but after seeing 3rd party Lockdown I've been spoiled and i can't help but wonder what a Unique Toys Hound would look like since they would get the proportions right.

    It would be great if the TLK toys would go up for preorder. Anytime now, Hasbro and Takara. :banghead:

    This.

    For all we know, come next Monday, waves one, two, and three could be on the shelves. I mean...I highly doubt it (I'm not counting on stores around me to bother to even put out wave one for a week or two), but there's no telling.

    At least the AoE figure was still a good figure, even if screen inaccurate. This guy just looks stupid with that terrible attempt at a big stomach, the bland color, those ridiculous wheel feet, and the head sitting way too low. On top of that, the AoE toy had almost no extra kibble beside the arms. This guy reminds me of the movie 1 toys with the blocky limbs, awkward proportions, and weird kibble placement.

    And the vehicle mode isn't even accurate!

    1. He has the right proportion as on screen. AOE toy were good tho.
    2. His head is at the right position. Maybe a little too low but screen-accurate.
    3. His alt mode has changed in TLK, from armored truck to......... Err, Mercedes armored-vehicle thing.

    Considering how there is no physical way for the vehicles to become the robot modes since with AOE, hell the didn't even bother to try and create transformation scenes in the movie, Hasbro did a bang up job on at least making exciting shell-formers. Voyager Optimus is lovely even if I hate it's paintjob. Can't wait for Megatron.

    Steelbane is a must, hope he comes into IDW continuity his design is so cool. The one steps are starting to get better and I appreciate that. Hope Drifts kibble is actually supposed to be on his butt.

    Also @Nevermore has anyone listed Leader Megatron yet?

    Steelbane looks good, Hound on the other hand is a step backwards from his AOE fig. The other guys...meh.

    Wait, Steelbane is a Voyager? I am pretty sure he is a Deluxe, as is Skullitron, when we saw them on display at Toyfair...
