    At the dollar general I work at, we got in another case of the legends figures that have been out for a while, we've gotten several since then but this is the first time i got this in:

    this prime has the remolded sword and head plate so it can hold the sword in vehicle mode from the asian exclusive motormaster. Also in the case was a starscream with the remolded jet wings with holes in them and the null rays, but sadly since i don't get paid till friday i can't get him till then.

    this could be just a factory error, or a possible running change for the figures

    Edit:bought starscream, so here is some images of these two on card next to their RTS counterparts!

    Wow- that sword looks awesome! And a Starscream with remolded wings? Does anyone have photos? I need to look out for these remolded figs! Do you know if Bee or Megs will be getting variants also?

    Nice find! My guess is no to being a factory error. Looks like I'm hitting Dollar Generals again.

    Interesting find.

    I'll check the Dollar General store in my area tomorrow. To see which variation version the store has.

    Gotta get me these variants, especially the OP. Hmmm how I wish they'd make a Bumblebee with the remolded hand too.

    I hope they'll go back and do all the legends with new hands eventually.

    Anyone want to pick Op & Starscream up for me and send them to the UK?

    Okay, my question is did they still make Starscream's head out of the black plastic, or is it grey with black paint around the helmet?

    I don't care for legends, but I love G1 type Legends. No, not a 'geewunner', just dig them more. This is really neat, I may get these even though I have the RTS versions.

    That's a really nice unchromed Menasor sword he's got there.
