    Couldn't find a review. Not much to say if not that he's probably my favorite Legends figure from the movie with Megatron. Helicopter mode is very well executed, transformation is fun and the robot looks very good with decent movement in the arms. I like it better that LOC Evac.

    Someone else will probably get it before me, I waited quite a bit before jumping on one. :)  Other sellers were asking between $90-150 plus shipping for one on hand, I got mine for $50 plus shipping.

    LOC Blackout and Starscream were released in Australia, too. Somehow every other version of Starscream looks less goofy in fighter mode than the Voyager class toy.

    In Canada, Brawl will be $59.99 plus taxes, so with shipping, and with the canadian dollar pretty much matching the struggling american dollar :) )), I ended up paying only a few dollars more than retail. Well worth it because he won't show up anytime soon in Quebec.

    Ahhhhhhhhhhhh... but I do recall someone paying something $150 for the first Legends Prime test shot on Ebay (and just as much for Legends Megatron as well I think)... :)

    He's very nice. Helicopter mode is very well detailed. Transformation is very fun. Robot mode looks awesome, with very good poseability with ball joint arms/legs (you can cheat and give him knees by rotateing the lower legs 90 degrees inward, it still looks good too!). Plus, the gun in vehicle mode winds up on his hand in 'bot mode, like his chain gun from the film. Deffinate 8/10.

    Accuracy rating: 3/5.

    got him today with starscream. he is the better of the pair.

    coptor- seems more like sandstorm than blackouts movie copter. but it is fun to swoosh him around the room, and drop the dx scorpy from somewhere.

    tf- until you trim the notches on his knees, his legs are almost impossible, and almost made me dislike a legends (of cybertron) that was not rachet. the rest is awesome, and i love how the rotor pegs into the 2 positions tightly. however, if you do this too much the rivet may be dislodged.

    bot- i prefer the rotor out anyway. his tailfinrotorthingy folding up is good. his posability is wawesome, plus, if you fold down the tailfin back to copter form, he can fly again! i don't get the wierd pods on the shoulders though.

    overall- hunt him down like the scurvy dog he be lads! yarr, random pirate influence

    I like it. Fun transformation for this small a toy, and the Helicopter mode is pretty nice.
