    What does everyone think about the new picture we got of the Revenge of the Fallen Legends Sideways redeco that serves as the first Mirage/Dino figure. I find it funny that the two cars that were both not licensed by Hasbro share a mold.

    First transforming figure, since the Speed Stars Mirage figure did see a (albeit limited) release.

    Uh...no
    The name mirage has been around for 30 years and that toy is in the Prime line and has nothing to do with the movieverse mirage/Dino

    There's nothing in that ad that says the toys in that particular picture are from the Prime line.

    Not to mention the fact that Evac is in that pic, who's from the movie-based Universal Studios ride.

    BUT, that also doesn't mean that's supposed to be Mirage anyway.

    When has this been confirmed? People keep crying "Mirage", but I can't find anything to back that claim up.

    Isn't it a retool? If you look closely you can see the headsculpt is like Mirage's, not Sideways

    ^The head just seems differently painted, not a new sculpt.

    Have Legends ever gotten new head sculpts? I can't think of any that have. They've been retooling hands lately, so I'd imagine new heads/faces would be possible, though hands are much simpler than faces.

    The "Mirage" name was from the RobotKingdom listing that popped up a few days ago:

    robotkingdom.com -- Online Toys Company

    And, now taking the Argos catalog into account, it's safe to assume that the red bot is meant to be movie Mirage since it matches up with the RK info.

    So...basically it ISN'T a movie Mirage/Dino toy we're getting. Its a small TF Prime version of "Mirage" from the TV series....?

    Ha, you quoted me before my edit. :) 

    But, no...there is no Prime "Mirage" (that we know about yet, anyway). It's movie Mirage, just like the Evac toy we're getting is movie Evac.

    Yup, and as the other two are pretty distinctive, it's a process of elimination really. I'm not all that disappointed - there's not many better choices to represent the character really if he must be a redeco.

    Makes sense.


    Got to say, I'm far more disappointed that every upcoming Movieverse release is either a repaint, Evac, or been on hold since, what, October? for no apparent reason.
