    Magic Square's figures are made of Nylon, making them very strong. Thin parts like Inferno's extending latter have been shown to be made of a very flexible memory plastic that we've seen at least two different videos of people abusing the hell out of the part, twisting and bending it, without it breaking and then it returns to its moulded shape.

    I'll second @Max Tower 's desire to see 3Ps give the MP legends treatment to other shows and sources. It goes without saying that most of the money is in G1, but I love my legends so much that I would seriously collect every line that was done well.

    Beast Wars I would be all over. Just give me a place to preorder and I'm there.

    The Unicron trilogy was painful to watch, but there were some sweet bots throughout it, and the Minicons were a fun new element.

    Animated? Hell yes. I would want every bot that appeared on that show, which probably will never happen.

    Prime and RID? Aligned is my jam. I love it more than G1 and I would definitely be on board with all of those great characters getting awesome legends scale figures.

    Rescue Bots is a total guilty pleasure. I love its wholesomeness and hate that all the figures of those guys are just shit. Being on the brink of 40 I am obviously not who those toys are geared towards, but they're great characters that deserve something with decent articulation and transformation. Not to mention it'd be irresistible to troop build with Morbots.

    Like the Masterpiece market, I guess we'll have to wait until 3Ps milk every drop from the G1 tit before we see other continuities getting full lines of figures. At least HasTak's moved onto Beast Wars. Who's got the stones to beat them to the punch with the later shows?

    They'd have to do the whole line tho... a 6-changer Megatron (both black and white paint jobs), Scourge (they could release a G2 Laser Prime deco too), Build and Rail teams, repaint Bruticus into Ruination and Sideswipe into some Spychangers.

    Come on IF, make me tap into my 401k...

    Is the entire figure made from the indestructible plastic?

    Now they have final versions of Seaspray and Beachcomber?! Boxes are probably not far behind if MS has already finished Sideswipe/Red Alert.


    Well maybe not boxes; at least a review or two though. Still hoping to see Inferno pop up as instock from a NA retailer.

    Man, these look great. Can't wait to see more of Magnus and Cyclonus soon.

    I just hope they stick with tiered prices. Inferno, Grapple and Magnus I think were $43 each at ShowZ. Hopefully Sideswipe and Red Alert are lower than that, and Seaspray and Beachcomber lower than them. Otherwise that's going to be a pricey order.

    I've already ordered my grapple and inferno. I'm feeling the lambos are too wide like the MP versions. The minibots are epic though.

    I'd just like some of the 3rd Parties to tackle the less popular G1 characters too. It's nice to get yet another Inferno, but how about a Hosehead? There have been plenty of Red Alerts, but what about a Siren? Oh good, another Springer. But how about a non-wienermobile Sandstorm?

    But I'd also be down for some post G1 characters as well. Maybe a Tarantulas-cycle? Or some of those background bots in Animated?

    There haven't been these characters in "Legends" scale so that argument is invalid here. I would love to see the ones you mentioned at some point though.

    Holy Primus, yes. I've been wanting an Astrotrain for my Cons.

    I was speaking more broadly. The Legends-scale third party is a new phenomenon, relative to the history of 3ps; particularly regarding non-minibot Legends-scale 3ps.

    No worries, I get and agree with what you mean. I would LOVE to see Legends scale Beast Wars and Unicron Trilogy figures. But I am glad we are getting the regulars too in some form for Legends.
