    "Mythical" Prime and BB? Could they have meant "Ultimate"? I would love if we got Ultimate Prime in addition to the already listed BB.

    Everyone knows transformable weapons are never going to happen. Gun alt-modes are completely dead and never going to happen ever again.




    Yeah, I'll buy it. And I'm betting now that Legends = Ultimate. Bumblebee as the one with the most screen time and OP as, well, OP make the most sense for that kinda price point.

    No, that's not what it means. Online translator tools are far from perfect, so some of the content got lost or misinterpreted in the process. Here's my translation:

    Could a mod frontpage my translation so that readers don't get confused about the 'Mythical' part of it?

    Thanks for a more proper translation Hook! Looks like S_Megs took care of the FP edit.

    Isn't Legends the small toy sizeclass formerly known as Legends of Cybetron in the Cyb line?

    I mean, we've seen LOC toys for Prime, Megs and Barricade so far, and I'd prefer not to jump to conclusions about two super-expensive Masterpiece-esque toys without any further evidence.

    I'm french, so I can help.

    Except I don't really have anything to add apart from confirming the OP's right :D 

    It does indeed talk about a transformable Optimus Prime Blaster, and the figure line they talk about is called Legends in english in the french text. And it ended half an hour ago too. Man, if only I'd known about it earlier...

    Again : by transformable, they mean 2 different gun modes, just like the sword-to-dagger Armada roleplay weapons.

    Really, that's a good hypothesis, but we don't know what they mean for sure yet, since we don't have pics of the toy ;)

    IIRC, this will be the first time Hasbro France have released TFs since early summer 2004.


    ....and we thought Hasbro U.K. were bad.
