    I'm lovin these legends!

    Exspecialy Hightower ("No robot mode" MY @SS!), Scrapper, and Overload. They appear to be the best. :)

    I like Scavenger and Hightower the best. I like their unique designs.

    Also, I'm pretty sure you can bring the treads on Scavenger's back down to support him in robot mode without using the arms.

    Can you bend the elbows in combined mode?

    Because if you can couldn't he walk on all fours by leaning him froward, and bending his knees and elbows?

    I NEED him! I especially like the way his torso forms.

    only up a little bit due to Scavenger's shovel joint. If you swing the arms forward you can squat his legs a little and have him walk on all fours.

    If you bend Overload at the waist,his arms can sit at his sides without touching the ground.

    Not sure but I think it's there also to help Dev walk on all fours,at least he can touch the ground with his arms then.

    Funny how this little guy looks a MILLION times better than the big, expensive fisher price robot named supreme devastator. I hope they do release these guys in north America cos I would love to pick them up. Thanks for the great review Peaugh!!

    I doubt that these guys WON'T make it over here in some fashion. Hasbro has said they're working on it, and it would seem silly not to release them. They don't seem any less safety standard violation than any other legends figures.

    They're not SUPER screen accurate, but damn, are they fun!

    It helps, but then the arms get too close to the legs and make it look awkward. In fact, there is another 'hidden' hinge on Overload in Devastator mode that's made by Overload's elbows. I actually used this to hinge Devastator's upper torso upwards, also helping with moving Devastator's arms forward more.

    The trick to making Devastator walk on all fours is changing the legs. Both Long Haul and Rampage can be adjusted quite easily to make Devastator lean over forwards a bit more. I posted pics in another thread.

    Yeah, I've found that turning the lower legs around and flipping Rampage's toes forward looks decent as well.

    I'm very disappointed that it's only Deluxe sized though.. :(  I wished it was Voyager size.. It's not only the size, but also the price I'm paying for.. TFs are really expensive in my area, even a Deluxe is costly.. So I'll have to pass this :( 

    As for the individual Legends figures, all of them are cool except for Rampage and Mixmaster. I love Hightower and Overload's unique robot modes. :D

    Ebay:
    wow peaugh u really wanted him didnt you not only from toy arena IMO one of the more pricey ebay shops for imports most are running at 59 right now with 40 shipping but even at that price a little more than 100$ us he is still a better deal then supreme crapastator. i saw it at target and was unimpressed and im easily impressed i mean scalpel really really impressed me. but my point I guess is even at import prices being at 100+ on feebay he seems worth it.
