    Cool. Hopefully this is a sign that they're on their way to US retail. Only plan on getting Optimus and Megatron, but they'll certainly make great additions to my collection.

    Ditto, though I have them pre-ordered from TF Source. Never thought I'd be able to get them locally sooner. :crazy:  (Well, wave 1 at least.)

    OK...
    So I bought my boy a TON of legends for Christmas when TRU had the buy one get two deal. I always said "I only collect BIIIG transformers" but they changed me.

    I totally remembered that Gears..Windcharger...Pipes..those were some of my FAV TFS at the time. I dunno..i Just loved em. These were the TFs I played with Matchbox cars with..

    Since Christmas Ive been playing with these with my boy. Some are pretty DAMN good. Like Dust off...and Optimus prime..Hound. They are pretty cool, and have changed my overall opinion of legends. Now I look at them on the shelves.

    As for these....WOW. Im buyin two of each of SS, Megs and Prime, and One BB for my boy. any and all other classic redecos they do like this I will also buy. They are fun, they Transform pretty easy and look good in both modes. When I would look at legends in the package or online before Christmas they looked like CRAPOLA to me. Now...I really dig em and cant wait to see all the legends Ark sets.

    I think there will be a legends rebound with them making lil playsets for em.

    So.... anyone else notice the lack of an orange tip on Megatron in that picture? Will the Canadian releases not have that god-awful color?

    Oh good, more legends I can happily go to my local Wal-Mart and never ever find.

    Well, that's not true, I've found plenty of new legends at Wal Mart, but in the past when it comes to small toys I really want, Wal Mart shows me it's butt.

    Well that's the thing, while most of the protos and all the package samples we've seen shows him with a white head, we have seen one proto with a factory painted black head.

    I'm hoping it's a running change that will be put into effect soon aftr initial releases, not that I'm not going to get the silver head version because it's a GD'd legends G1 Starscream.

    I've had my preorder with BBTS since September. I e-mailed them asking about the delay on Friday. Here's the reply:

    Hi Jeremy, I apologize for the wait however, we are not given any specific arrival info.

    Thanks!

    Their site still lists the estimated to arrive to be January 2011, It's February now.
