    "Green Warpath" nothing, that there is Gutcruncher! But yes, the point remains that it's what will make this five pack worth getting.

    Do want Legends. Holding out hope we'll get two five packs like last year, but we'll see.

    Warpath's look is so distinctive, I can't get past it being a green version of him. Maybe it can be a drone, or several of them can be "Warpath sweeps."

    Must buy tiny Gutcruncher homage! Give the other to my nephews.

    Why can't they all be Universe Legends redecos in the 5 pack? Bumblebee repainted as Cliffjumper, Rodimus repainted as Wildrider, Jazz repainted as Ricochet, Wheelie repainted as Dion... I'd buy anything for a Classics Legends toy.

    I just hope it isn't over $20, cause that price would even be silly to pay for Gutcruncher. The rest will be going to my buddy's kids with the hot aunt. For a repaint, it works really well. Just wish they would package a bunch of Universe Legends repaints in a pack instead like the G1 ehobby minibots. That would be a 2 or 3 set buy.

    "Sparkcrusher" - ooh boy. That finally convinces me they now choose characters names at Habsro with a dart board that has a bunch of tf related adjectives taped to it. Naming robits is the easiest job in the whole world it seems. :lol

    My guess is that Hasbro lost the rights to the name, "Gutcruncher," so they replaced "gut" with "spark," and "crunch" with "crush," then voila, new name. But much like many other naming refugees, like Alternators Shockblast and TRU Reissue Rodimus Major, I figure many fans will probably continue to refer to this guy by the name he was clearly intended to have.

    Either way what most have said I agree with...the other figures in the set are worthless...
