    I saw this the other day, and it looks pretty good (the $10 price tag is very nice). I'll probably get it at some point.

    I saw this at Wal-Mart yesterday, I didn't recognize the Rodimus figure. I assume he's a repaint/re-release of a prior figure, but I'm not familiar with him.

    Yeah, he's a repaint of the Universe Legends Rodimus (was probably overshadowed by all of the Minibot Legends that came out at the same time).

    Grabbed one of these sets yesterday. Rodimus looks great with the black outlined flame deco and he adds some much needed orange to my Legends display. Bumblebee has a Goldbug thing going on, and the silver paint looks good, although the grey tires throw off the whole look for me. Soundwave is the real star of this set for me. I missed the original release, and this one has an even better deco. Kinda funny that movie Soundwave's best figure is a Legends figure.

    Overall QC on all three seems excellent, oddly better than what I've seen on most of the main line toys. Definitely a set to pick up, especially for such a good price.

    From MN Sightings thread a fellow member suggested:

    Repaint Legends Rodimus == Wheelimus Prime.

    Wheelie with flames works for me.

    Overall pleased with the 3 pack. Only thing I don't like is rereleasing Legends/Legion figures without the remolded hands to hold clip weapons. We've already seen the movie Bumblebee rereleased with new hands...why not include THAT one?

    The old Movie Bumblebee was rereleased with new hands? I don't think I've seen that one. All I've seen the new one that has one sculpted hand

    The new TRU legends pack has RotF BB AND Starscream with the remolded hands. The Target exclusive 2-pack with Megatron also is the old mold with a new hand. Last but not least is the Cyberverse Bolt Bumblebee single carded figure. That's three rereleases and Walmart dishes out a straight repaint that doesn't work in the "Cyberverse".

    I'm not big in getting Legends figures but the Goldbug paint job on BB, and "Wheelimus" looking Hot Rod was interesting enough for me. After buying my set, I found that SW was not bad either, not bad at all.

    That does seem weird. Maybe WalMart ordered this set and it went into production before Hasbro decided to resculpt the hands.

    Thanks for the links, now I have to get ANOTHER Legends movie Bumblebee. :lol

    Anyone apply some paint to their Rodimus? I'd like some suggestions on what to paint up because I'm not artistic at all :p  In alt mode, his headlights and bumper are obvious choices. In robot mode, his hands would look better painted. I hate it when their hands are the same color as the panel.

    Just bought the set off Ebay. Can't wait for it. Love the Legends Rodimus, although he's more colored like Wheelie.

    I've been eyeballing my Rodimus figure and think I've finally come up with how I wanna paint him. With just a few color changes, he'll make a neat update to RiD Spychanger Hotshot aka Artfire.
