    eh, that's ugly. Pass on that and stealth lockdown. Much better things out there to buy.

    Awfully sneaky of them to pack the perty legends figures in with two repaints. Especially considering how butt-fugly the Ratchet repaint is.... definitely a bit old "skip it" on that one.

    I'm not too impressed with the Lockdown repaint either, but that might just be due to my natural distaste for repaints.

    Is this the first sighting of Legends Starscream as well?

    Hopefully this means a Stealth Lockdown sighting will appear any day now.

    Before someone asks: according to this, the DPCI for these sets should be 087-06-2068.

    DePartment Class Item. Target's inventory numbering system.

    Oy.

    DPCI stands for "DePartment, Class, & Item". DPCI numbers are what Target uses for their stock identification system.

    EDIT: D'oh. LAGER'd!

    I live in the same region as Astroscream, so I'll check out the local Targets on the way back home and see if they have any of them, along with the Stealth Lockdown. How much are these?

    ^ $14.99, according to the thread I linked above. That was still the price when I punched the code in a couple weeks ago.

    I may have picked this up as a Christmas gift for my son, but he said "He looks too much like Ronald McDonald."

    Really, all I want is the Legends Prowl and Bumblebee with the silver Autobot symbols. Getting the other 2 plus Prowl and BB with red/white symbols too would be good.

    But I don't want both sets. Just the legends.

    I don't hate Rescue Ratchet, but I'm not going to go after him either. Stealth Lockdown, on the other hand, has a more interesting concept going for him (if not perfect execution) plus the bonus of the tiny Legends Bumblebee. Prime is just an unfortunate "bonus."

    My Targets suuuuuuuuuuuck. Still only have:

    Voyager Prime, Bulkhead, Megatron, and Starscream.
    Deluxe Wave 1, 2, and sometimes 3.

    That's IT for Animated. :mad 

    I have yet to find anything else in Animated. But I'd still pass on this set.
