New Classics Legends Assortment Appearing at Dollar General

... well, perhaps "new" is the wrong word as all four of these have been around before, but never in the same assortment before.

2005 Boards member HoosierDaddy reports finding some new Legends Class toys in his local Dollar General. The four toys in the assortment come on generic backer cards, so are not just old Reveal the Shield stock but a new run. The assortment consists of:

Reveal the Shield Legends Optimus Prime
Reveal the Shield Legends Starscream
Universe 2.0 Legends Megatron
Dark of the Moon Cyberverse Bumblebee (Cyberverse Evolution Set)


The Bumblebee is a true oddity, since he is a single pack version of a previous Toys R Us exclusive multipack. This version also omits the big honkin' Autobot symbol on his chest that the last release had. The other three seem largely unchanged from their first releases. They run for $6 each.

Hrm... I'd say these are KOs but...

That Bumblebee's not the RTS version. Interestingly, it looks like the version that came in a DOTM versus pack of Legion Starscream and Bumblebee in both Earth and Cybertronian modes -- it was exclusive to Toys R Us. Funky.

Ko or not that's pretty neat, but too exp IMO

Yeah, it could be. Just like Megs isn't the RTS version. OP and Starscream appear to be RTS though at least. I know they aren't KO's though.

yeah I saw we got new peg space for them at the one i work at, after we clearanced the mincons and did a reset, was hoping this was the case, i need that megatron and bumblebee

Agree. Finding these at Dollar general, I would expect them to be maybe 3 or 4 bucks.

That's VERY interesting. Even more interesting is the fact that G2 Megatron and Bumblebee weren't even part of the RTS line!!! They were both released in the Universe line years ago.

It may be that this is a Dollar General exclusive line. I already have OP, Gun Megatron, and Prowl, but I wouldn't mind having Starscream and Bumblebee as well. I love tiny G1 figures.

Someone give this man a news credit!
Autobot Burnout
Already have Optimus and Screamer, not sure I want another Legends BB (already have Gold BB/Goldbug).

I want the Megatron, though.
BScorpinok75
Haven't seen these around these parts yet.
HoosierDaddy
Well, I just hope I could help anyone out who may be looking for these to keep eyes peeled at DG for them. Good luck. They are fun to tinker around with, I'll say that.

they should be $6, according to the system at my work they are

minicons were $5, so yeah, makes sense they would cost more
cleazer
Glad to see some new product heading into the dollar stores. I was getting tired of looking at the old ones.

The fact that they picked the 4 most famous Transformers (instead of some repaint no-name minicons or scouts) means these might actually sell well for them.

Don't tell me even RTS Megatron isn't allowed anymore because of his gun mode. Part of me thinks that's hilarious if it is the case.

I understand what you're saying, but i meant when you find these at DG you would expect them to be a little cheaper. Yeah, $6 is the price. I would just hope that DG would sell them a bit cheaper. How much did these retail for at big box stores? Probably wasn't much more than $6 or $7 each was it? I guess when i go to DG I'm expecting a little more price difference from Wal mart or something, ya know?

yeah i see what your saying, the name dollar general doesn't help, but people have to remember, we really aren't a "dollar" store per say, but really a general store with many items for a dollar

I know some stuff is more expensive than big retailers like wal-mart, but most is cheaper at least. I agree, you'd think legends would be cheaper at DG

Nice to get another shot at Legends G2 Tank Megatron.
Dinobot Nuva
The Bee appears to be a...uh...depaint? of the DOTM 4-pack use, this one lacks the giant 'bot symbol.
ironjazz
the card looks way too big to be an offical one so I'm guessing k.o.

Technically you could argue that it could be confused for a real weapon:

I don't have that Megs mold, so I might have to seek these out. Thanks for the tip! Now lets see if there is a Dollar General anywhere near me...

Oh, I know why it wouldn't be allowed. I just find it kinda funny that this toy went from "released" to "not allowed" that fast .
turbojack
Did nobody else notice the tiny autobot logo on primes left arm or that his legs seem to be a shinier blue than the RTS legends release? I'm definently going to try and pick up the Megatron if I see him.
Robogeek28
Oh nice, I need that Megatron. Now to try and find out if there's a Dollar General in my area.
PoweredConvoy
What's interesting is the Prime looks to be like the Chronicles one (tiny Autobot symbol). I wonder if Starscream is the best of both worlds, having the properly painted head AND the painted symbols.

Ooh, definitely gonna be checking out Dollar General when I get home this weekend.
Robogeek28
Maybe we can get repainted Seekers down the road this way, that'd be nice.

Also, it looks like I have a Dollar General just 5 minutes away, fantastic!
Sideswipe1954
I checked our local Dollar General, they still have 2 full pegs of those Mini-Cons for $5 each. I am hoping Ollie's gets these too, since they should also be more reasonably priced
Hot Shot.
Cool. I've got them all minus that particular BB deco, but still cool. Hopefully they make a wave with the Universe 2.0 Minibots a lot of people missed out on.

No dollar general in my state. If anyone is able to hook me up with three Bumblebee's that are the ones similar to the TRU ones, I'd really appreciate it. Of course I'd pay them back and some extra for their time.
CodeXCDM
Interesting... but with a name like "Dollar General" you'd figure they were a dollar each.

Most Maxx/Marshall's had an assortment of RTS Legends for a few months at around 4$ a piece. Might be worth seeing if any have some still.
Powersa
$24 for these 4 is too much for me.
Chaos Muffin
6 dollars at the dollar store. For something that was 5$ at a normal store.

wtf mang
theestampede
not a huge fan of this optimus mold, but I like all three of the others a lot, might end up picking one or two up if I see them.
Ratchets Hatch
I have a bunch of Dollar Generals in my area. Gonna hit them up and see if I can find a Starscream.
wolfe
Megatron interests me. Might have to check it out the next time I'm there.
charsdc2
Wausau Dollar General got Universe 2.0 Legends for $3.75 apiece!
ruinationawaken
Seriously after how many years of dollar general/family dollar repacks, people are still thinking these might be KOs?
BenjaminXavier
I checked the two in my town today, nothing yet. I want the megs, but I wont go out of my way for him. I'll check again next week.

It looks like they're on the oversized "scout" cards that the dinos came on from last year, thats kinda weird. But those dinos ended up at Ross, and other "dollar" stores, so hopefully they'll be all over.
NLWprime
is it odd to say i got a reveal the shield gold bug from a 5 below store
TFanPage101
Not to shabby, I missed these figures when they came out
MWG
I made the mistake of skipping this Megatron when it initially came out, may have to go check for it later this weekend. It would be nice if Hasbro was able to reissue some of the other HTF legends, like Cosmos, Wheelie, Brawn, Beachcomber and maybe Warpath (if he is still in demand after the Deluxe came out). They could even get some easy repaints like Thundercracker, Skywarp, and Clffjumper out if they are lucky.

Didn't find these legend figures but did find the Generation Minicons half price (2.50).

People in this fandom having the attention span/memory of a gold fish? Color me surprised.

I wouldn't be surprised if half the people on this board had no idea who I am considering my lack of activity in the past few months.
GizmoTron
I didn't find any of the Legends, but they did have a the Ultimate Battle Optimus and Megatron sans DVD in "Generations" packaging, I'm not sure if that's new or not though (this is the first time I've gone into Dollar General in like a year).
StarLurker
On RTS Megatron and orange tips on toy guns: What I don't get is... Couldn't you just paint the tip of your real gun orange and go about with your dastardly deeds? O_o
NemesisBrime
i saw a rts gold bug for 1.66 at xs cargo in vancouver
