    Last night I received Starscream, Prowl, and Trailbreaker :)  from BBTS and opened them up today with my daughter. These are the first Legends I've bought, and I can't stop taking them off the shelf and transforming them.

    I can't wait to get Optimus Prime and Megatron from HTS.

    Definitely worth the wait on these guys.

    I absolutley, unhealthily, inappropriately love legends. They are so damn fun, and the RTS ones are some of the best yet. Prime and Megs are great, BTW. :thumb

    Yeah, I love RTS Legends too, especially Megs and Prime. Gold Bumblebee is nice too, being a G1 Goldbug homage. :)

    I was very happy yesterday when my set of 6 came in. Starscream's transformation was cool for such a small figure. I am Very happy to have these guys on my shelf, definitely worth the wait!

    Got my set of Starscream, Megatron, Optimus, Prowl, and Trailbreaker today. Absolutely love them. My Prowl is missing his light bar though. :( 

    They go right along with Beachcomber, Hot Rod, Bumblebee, Brawn, Cosmos, Wheelie, Hound, Jazz, and Warpath.

    I got multiples of the first 4, that's how much I love them:

    - 3 Gold Bumblebees
    - 2 Megatrons
    - 3 Starscreams (2 with painted heads, 1 unpainted variant)
    - 2 Optimus Primes (I sold one to a friend who needed it)

    I'd just like to find them in stores. Every Wal-Mart and Target in my area has empty pegs for Legends. But so far, no restocks of the RTS guys. I wish they'd hurry though.

    I'm not too fond of most of the Legends class but I will say I hope I these make it to stores before the DoTM stuff starts warming shelves. Especially Trailbreaker.

    I'm very much hoping to find Screamer, Prime, and Megs at retail, but SS is the only one I'd venture online for without any sort of free shipping discount. I'm content to wait a bit but am definitely wondering if they'll make it out in anything resembling decent numbers before mid-May and DOTM's big toyline debut.

    That Megatron is awesome. He will be in many transformers hands. Screamer is sitting on Bruticus's shoulder ATM.

    My Megs is currently standing on one of my Classics Decepticons shelves, arms up in the air trying to look imposing surrounded by a bunch of guys twice his height. :D 

    Seriously though, the RtS Legends are probably the best toys made in that size class. It's a shame they're ending (to be replaced by Cyberverse) but at least the scale is going out on a high note.

    You're going to love Megatron when he arrives. I mean, he's bloody adorable, and he makes a darn good gun. But my favourite has to be Prowl - sweet car mode and surprisingly detailed robot mode. I totally need to hunt down Prime and Screamer too. :3

    I found he doesn't fit that well in an MP seeker hand. :(  He's designed to slot in, but only just (and there's no way of even touching the trigger).
