    I have just noticed there's no thread for these little guys, so I dare to start one :) 
    (Pictures are reposts from Cool Stuff thread)

    First up, Bonecrusher.

    Vehicle;

    [​IMG]

    He's not painted except for the windows in this mode, though very detailed. The claw arm has 3 points of articulation.

    Transformation is very simple, you basically only need to open up the vehicle and the bot is there.

    [​IMG]

    The arm has good articulation at the shoulder, but that's all. Legs are ball jointed and move nicely, though like LoC Barricade his knees are bent so it's a bit hard to balance him.
    Face is painted well, cute in that Bonecrusher kind of way :D 

    Brawl

    [​IMG]

    No paint but nicely detailed. The cannon can be moved up and down.

    Transformation is more complicated than Bonecrusher. I really like the way his arms transform. (I didn't fold down the cannon in the picture)

    [​IMG]

    Big plus for me is that his head can swivel. Legs can turn at the knees, so even though I can't really bend his legs this makes posing him more fun.

    I love LoCs to begin with, but these guys are great. I might consider Brawl as the best of the movie LoCs. Can't wait for Ironhide!

    Awesome, Syd! Thanks tons for sharing. I've been very eager to see good pics of these guys. They look great to me.

    Now hurry up and release them, Hasbro. I'm feelin' the new TF itch!

    (Any chance you could snap some Legends Rescue Ratchet pics? He comes with one of those two, right? Did you also get Nightwatch OP vs. Stealthscream? :) )

    Must... Have... New... Legends...

    And that Frozen Piss Bumblebee. It's almost too cool to pass up (now to find one that isn't ass rape + shipping)

    W00T for more pictures! Thanks, Syd!

    Ratchet looks about as I expected... OK.

    This release of Jazz has FEWER paint apps than the first? (Added bot-mode grille deco, but removed car-mode headlights, taillights, and grille, as well as knees, from my view.) WTF? :peoples: 

    HA! I know those guys. :)  That pic is awesome. "Bad cops" FTW!

    Oo. CJ looks good as the '77. I think I wish they'd done that for the Deluxe, rather than the '09.

    And I SHOULD have one of those Scanning BBs coming to me. *crosses fingers* I have a friend who usually gets all the Japanese hobby mags through our local comic store, and he said he wouldn't want it.

    Brawl looks almost the spitting image of G1 Brawl when he transformered...now only if this one could combine.

    I'm fairly certain the plain one on the right is the original, and the one on the left is the new repaint. At least, the Legends Jazz I got in my Charity Premiere gift bag was the version on the right.

    I just got my Legends Bonecrusher yesterday with Jazz. Not too hot on the Autobot, but BC is so unexpectedly cute.

    Was fooling around with him, and was surprised at how articulated his shoulders and arms were.
    Tried putting him in a menacing pose:

    I failed so hard.

    [inside joke]See the chocolate on those minifigs? You forgot to wipe them![/inside joke]

    Hope you and SB1 both will get that candy 'Bee (thanks for the nicer image, SB1 :lol ) soon.

    That's very interesting that you got that "unpainted" Jazz at the premiere, because Jarodimus is right, that is the one which came with Bonecrusher :) 
    Sounds like Hasbro decided to dig out an older version just to fill the package.

    Congrats on your pickup, Sycia. Nice pic :)

    Thanks for the pics Syd! Can't wait for LoC Bonecrusher and Brawl.

    And yes Sycia ... you failed in posing Bonecrusher to look menacing, but succeded in posing him to look cute. :p 

    Mine is painted like the one on the left, but isn't as dark. I guess that could be an effect on the lighting though.

    P.S.: nice backdrop there.

    Looking forward to Brawl and Bonecrusher...Ratchet looks terrible in G1 colors no matter the price point, though Jazz looks better in the metallic coloring but I'm still not a fan of the Autobot Legends molds. I'll be getting them just for the Decepticons. Awesome pics SydneyY, thanks for taking the time to do that for us.

    I seriously wish they stopped wasting plastic with these things. They suck. Even Minicons were better. And of course, the latest two additions suck, just like the rest. And that Legends Ratchet needs to be in the top 5 worst Transformers ever made.

    I hate to rant like these...but Hasbro can do better. Wayy better.

    And yet, this thread and many others are full of folks who enjoy them.

    Odd.

    Honestly, with all the higher-end well engineered toys like MP SS out, I cannot see why anyone over the age of three would get excited over these... the lack of paint-apps and hack-job engineering just makes them seem even cheaper than they already are...

    They're better than most G1 figures and people still buy the reissues.

    Umm.... I personally find them far worse looking than G1 figures. For one thing, G1s have PAINT on them... combined with die-cast parts, good decorative stickers, and nostalgia they are top-notch. These Legends figures are just super duper cheap toddler-toys... basically the next step up from the Heros play-school figs.

    I think its funny how many people disagree on every type of Transformer. Some like and some hate, but that Brawl sure looks good to me.
