    Legends class Ice cream twins. They could come in a two pack, and their alt mode would be roughly scout class, so that we would have robot mode that are standard legends class.

    For me they would be bought on sight. Who else likes the idea of having legends Ice cream twins?

    I scream, you scream, we all scream, for Ice Cream Twins!

    They'll never be sold in my country so I've been following them on eBay.
    Judging by how much they go for, they're really popular.
    And I'd want them for myself, they look like really cool, if somewhat OFF, figures!

    Their bot modes are small as a deluxe class as it is. So, it's a no from me.

    :confused:  No you haven't.

    Sounds like a cool idea. We had Legends two packs for the first movie, so no reason we couldn't have them again.

    I could go for that over the two-packs we had last time where they usually had one new figure and one that many people had already bought. Not a repaint fan so having to stump up for one I already had to get a new figure sucked.

    I'm still annoyed I had to buy the crappy Bumblebee (which I knew in advance I didn't want) to get the excellent Skorponok.

    It's pretty obvious he meant the icream twins that are already available in retail.. Could've saved three unneccesary replies.

    Yup. And I was bitter because I already had a crappy Bumblebee. I found a use for the second one because I gave it to my niece, but it was still balls to have been stuck with having to buy double to get one new.
    But I'm pefectly happy if any new double packs contain two new characters. As long as they're cheaper than buying two singles, otherwise what's the gain in them being two-packs? At least with the ice cream twins it makes unquestionable sense to have them sold as a pair. And it's like those old Micromasters where you had two halves of a vehicle which became two robots. :)

    I'm fine with the packs either being two new molds or two repaints/old ones. I just get annoyed at using something new to force me to buy something I already fraggin' have. I didn't even mind too much with the Irondhide/Blackout pack as at least Blackout was in new colours. But the Bumblebee/Skorponok pack? Dick move, Hasbro. Dick move.

    No. He wants NEW legends sized twins that would combine into 1 scout sized vehicle.

    yes, tis true, but he was following the sales of the ice cream deluxe and noticed they are selling well.


    so he is trying to pitch that if they made a legends class of the icecream twins they would prolly do just as good.

    Pass. The Deluxe sized is good enough, and we get the individual twins in Legends scale anyway. Anything you do with the Ice Cream version will produce either bots that are too small or an alt mode that is too big for the scale you are playing with.
