    Did Hasbro lose the trademark for Motor Master? I just don't see the point in calling that figure Menasor when it's clearly Motor Master.

    Other then that gripe, the vehicle modes look great. I wish Spx posted bot mode pics too.

    Like the rest of Classics I'm having a hard time saying I think these figures suck. I think the only Classics fig I'm not feeling is Mirage. Because his robot mode never really sang to me.

    I swear if I had the cash I'd make sure to get every single figure in this line

    you're hardly the only one *L* as for the trademark, it was said a good while ago that they lost the trademark to the name, indeed. oh, and he does have a robot mode picture, it just takes forever and a day to load is all.

    Awww, no bot pics. Still, can't wait until they're released, they're purty.

    What are the chances we could get the full size re-paints of these cybertron figures released as Classics or ...dare I say.....Universe?

    these aren't near the quality of the rest of the classic line. plus the rest of the classic line was almost to scale
    (at least the autobots are). But these two are really off.

    Those Classics Legends all look silly and none of them look like their G1 counterpart. Really bad recycling idea.

    For cheapo repaints, I think they're okay. I don't think of these little LOC guys as really being part of any particular line (that is, they aren't meant to coexist with the full-size bots), they're just little novelties. But I love them!

    I too think Whirl should have been Blades, but who knows... could be a name-rights thing, could be something else. But that Prime mold looks great on Menasor/Motormaster! It looks very evil in those colors.

    A Prime repaint that isn't Nemesis or Magnus FTW! That looks good in Motormaster colors, at least in trukk mode.

    i was initially receptive of these repaints. but once ive seen em in person, i'm not so keen on em.

    i'm just content with the original colors which were already awsum in the 1st place, g1 referencing be damn.

    I don't know. Probably not great, but we are getting Constructicon Maximus again as a store exclusive, so maybe if the line goes on longer than originally planned. Possibly as another store exclusive. I'd definitely go for a full size repaint of Cybertron or Energon Prime as Menasor or a two pack of Cyb. Defense Red Alert as Perceptor and Armorhide as Huffer.

    Menasor?? Motor Master?? I'm GREATLY surprised that they didnt name him Nemesis Prime! :p 

    Ultra Magnus in BLACK repaint?? :inquisiti  Not really feasible unless we're seeing a WHITE repaint there.

    would be silly to name him nemesis prime considering its 80% grey and not black :p  I guess no one saw my post on the FIRST page that adressed the name :rolleyes2 :
