    I'm not really a Legends class kinda guy. I have trouble justifying to myself $5 for a legends class toy when $10 (well, now $12) buys me a Deluxe... I feel like Deluxes give me the best bang for my buck.

    Still, I see people raving about how awesome and fun Legends toys are, so when I saw the 5-pack for $15, I bit.

    I'm glad I did.

    The only Legends toy I had previously was Cybertron Sunstorm... very cool, but just a substitute for the Voyager I could no longer find. Did eventually find him on these boards though. I just felt the Legends Sunstorm to be inferior to Voyager Starscream, though, that I never bothered to get anymore. A friend got me a Legends Cybertron Soundwave later on, and, well... his alt mode, for me, fit together as well as I could get the voyager to - that being not at all.

    Still, these little guys are awesome. Definitely like Sparkcrusher (lawl) the best, with Swerve and Ironhide coming in a close second. Mudflap, the centerpiece of the package... kinda sucks though. :( 

    Had a few beers. Would take pics and stick this in the reviews forum, but... well, no pics, and I'm just kinda talking about em all. Mods, if this DOES belong in the Feedback section, I'm sorry, and please move. :)

    I bought this. Kept Mudflap, gave Runamuck and Sparkcrusher away, and my parents lost Swerve and Ironhide.

    Different strokes for different folks, I guess. I don't really like Mudflap that much, but I like the other four.

    Deal was that I'd keep one, give two away and save the other two for Christmas. Dad lost Swerve and Ironhide.

    I've been waiting for the price on this to go down from $20, I really like the Legends class figures, especially the RotF ones, which are far better designed than most anything that came before. I never found Warpath & really prefer his original red version, but I do like the Swerve & Ironhide figures in this set. Ironhide in particular, the painted windshield gives him kind of a Premium Series feel.

    I felt like "Wow, this sucks. Wonder what the Voyager is like?"
