Toys ‘R’ Us Exclusive Transformers: Dark Of The Moon Cyberverse Legion 4-Pack

TRU-Transformers-3-Dark-of-the-Moon-Cyberverse-Legion-4-Pack
A seller from Australia has put up an eBay auction for a Toys "R" Us exclusive Transformers: Dark of the Moon Cyberverse Legion 4-Pack.

The set contains 2 Bumblebees and 2 Starscream repaints.

While one Bumblebee looks like an ordinary version the other Bumblebee is clearly a “Trans-scanning” (according to the “Trans-scanning” term found on the leaked toy list) version.

As for the Starscream toys, one figure is none other than the Transformers: War For Cybertron Cyber Starscream (Redeco of Cybertron Legends Starscream) distributed exclusively for UK Shopto.net customers.

Ooh, there's that 'warping' effect on Bumblebee again!

I hate Hasbro sometimes...they're gonna make me buy so many Legends Bumblebee to get the ones I want...*sigh*

I could care less about this set, except that it has the WFC paint scheme of the Cybertron Legends Starscream...since it IS cheeper to get this set...*sigh*

Legion is apt considering the shelf warming potential.

i'll pick it up for the cybertron starscream alone!

So that appears to be: Universe BB in a movie-ish deco, an alt-mode-scanning movie BB, Starscream with a funky deco and... is that the War For Cybertron Legends Starscream on the end?

That pack looks strange even more with it having Cybertron Starscream in there for some reason. Maybe it's story on the back goes something like

"Deep in Space Bumblebee looks for the runaway Starcream who has gone into another universe to recruit an alternate self. As he enters a portal he finds an alternate form of himself! Can the two Bumblebees defeat the two Starcreams?"

i have none of these molds.

great success!

I'm looking forward to this set. I hope it's not an Australian only exclusive.

Getting this set for Universe Bumblebee and Cybertron Starscream

Interesting 4-pack. Probably won't get it, but the Universe Bee and Cybertron Starscream repaints look nice. Should be interesting to see what other non-movie Legends repaints we get from these multi-packs.
BenjaminXavier
Yeah, I'm diggin it for the "classics" repaints. I hope they repaint that new starscream mold into thundercracker and skywarp at some point. They did with the last few legends molds for various exclusive sets, so here's to hoping...
Bgrngod
Definitely interesting...

So far I have been more impressed with the Legends/Cyberverse stuff from DOTM than the other figures (Shockwave and Leader Ironhide top the list though). This particular 4 figure set of Legends has me interested mostly due to the completely unexpected use of the Cybertron Starscream mold and the Universe Bumblebee mold, along with the "phased" movie Bumblebee. That's 3 pretty awesome wins in a 4 pack.
Rotorstorm
It is plainfully obvious that the cybertron and movie starscreams are not the same character, the toys look so different, they should have put in the universe Bumblebee instead of one of the movie ones to mix it up a bit and make WFC Starscream stand out so much.

Darn it Hasbro. I thought I won't be buying any DOTM toys but Hasbro keeps putting Classics molds into the DOTM multi-packs. It was Universe legends Rodimus first and now Bumblebee. I don't mind buying them single-carded but in multi-packs; why?

It's like Sparkcrusher all over again.
planetjacker
I'm there for the Starscreams. I am pleased that at least I'll be buying a multipack for more than one figure. I usually end up getting anywhere from a 2pk to a 5pk for just one Starscream.
Omegax80
Maybe its the realization that movie legends won't sell unless classics legends are packed with them? I would buy this for the Cybertron Starscream and Classics Bumblebee, and either sell or toss the other two in the trash.

There is not one new mold in that pack.
SAF7
Yes, the WFC Legends Starscream!! Please let this set come to the US!

I believe that JamesBenjamin was talking about the RTS Legends Starscream mold, not one of the figures in this 4-pack.

I want that pack for the WfC Starscream alone.

Now to find someone who wants the two Starscreams and the scanning Bee
eagc7
damn, i wanted that
Kaymac
Hasbro, Hasbro, Hasbro. What ARE we going to do with you? Seriously, they put in one really desirable toy with a bunch of... crap.
turbobungle
Bumblebee overload! Now we get two in one pack! That Bumblebee wing I need to add to my house is looking more and more like an inevitability
Astroscream
Are there weapons in this box?

Yes, not sure why though, unless they include retooled launchers.

No rush to find it at my TRU. They still have exclusives from 3 lines back!
RedAlert Rescue
The news title information is incorrect or misinformed as the Transformers : War For Cybertron Legends Starscream is not the same as the one in that boxed set not only is the WFC one a bit of a different shade of grey it has red shoulders not blue, and the one in the boxed set has no chest logo or if it does it's lower (hard to be sure from such a small photo)- it's similar but it's not the same the 4 pack version also has unpainted engine exhausts and it's wing leading edges are not blue unlike the WFC one.

Also the one in the 4 pack has grey air intake/neck launchers the WFC one has them and parts of the upper chest painted in red. the chest guns on the new one are also unpainted and the neck missiles on the new one are painted gold on the previous one they are red. The spray mask on the wings and chest is not the same either.

It's just another Cybertronian Starscream in more or less G1 Colours.

They do share some colours though especially some of the blue areas on the legs but they are not the same toy thats for 100% certain as I have the WFC one in front of me as I type and can see for myself..

[P.S] would have been nice to have gotten Bugbite Glyph or Cliffjumper rather than another Classics Bumblebee legend.

I also notice the front of the box only says "Cyberverse" and not Legion - I wonder where if anywhere they wrote Legion or do they only consider that a price point not a size of the items ?
NCStarscream
Bought for the Starscreams! The warping look is cool, so I won't freak too much about adding that Bee to my collection even though I have way too many of them.
Buster_Witwicky
Glad I didn't buy many Legends from the other lines! Now I don't need Goldbug (but let's face it, I'll probably end up getting him anyway).

That would've defeated the purpose of this set.
Beastbot X
Man, I cannot express how much I freaking LOVE these "trans-scanning" repaints. They could do it to every toy in the entire friggin' line and I'd buy them all.
NCStarscream
It just occurred to me that the movie Starscream might also have a bit of the warping effect, but hidden by glare from the camera.
bny888
I want the Bees! I will sell the Starscreams to my friend who collects this character.

Yup, I didn't look too closely at the pictures and thought that the movie starscream was the new RTS legends one.

poop. =(

Well, I don't have that classics bee in yellow (only gold) so I'll probly get the pack and ebay the extras.
SSR
