    Awesome, thank you. Ordered two sets, as they come pretty cheap.
    Looking forward to upgrade the insignia of a few figures in my collection (Megatron, Grapple, possibly the Seekers and the Coneheads too, if the larger size is large enough...), as well as getting ready for upcoming releases (MST Bee and Prowl).

    Thanks again buddy. ^_-

    Edit - Also added in a couple of sets from @bababobo00712 (through eBay), as they had a fancy white-outlined, clear Autobot symbol I wanted to try for my MST Prime.

    I'm just now realizing that on NA bee 2.0 you can have accurate symbol placement for both modes because of the Transformation

    I won't be putting a symbol on the bonet myself, but it's nice that that's possible for those who like that level of accurate detail

    Been a minute since I have posted but wanted to share my legends display that I reworked.

    Impressive! I love all those blast effects, they do really add a lot, in terms of dramatic action.

    Also, your display makes me want Magic Square to do some Titans (also bigger dudes like Jetfire) so badly.

    Hey all, I'm looking for legends scale combiners, who exists out there? Devestator, Computron, superion, menasor, abonimus, bruticus, defensor, predaking, etc. What legends scale combiners have been made? Thanks!

    To the best of my knowledge, not many are out as of yet. Of what’s been released though, DX9 did a Devastator years back, Iron Factory has done a Bruticus, a Baldigus repaint of that, and their own DJD combiner. All of IF offerings are pretty expensive of the aftermarket. New age and Magic Square have announced a Mensaor, but only MS is on track to release that set anytime soon. Also Zeta(?) has announced a legends scale Superion. Anyone feel free to add if I’ve missed anything.

    The old fansproject upgrade for bruticus and Superion are roughly legends scale

    I think mastermade has an upcoming devastator in the works as well

    Tfc showed a downsized prototype of Hercules, but I don't know if anything came of that

    There are smaller old 3P chug scale combiners that can work with legends if you are of the mindset that combiners should be gestalts...

    Here are some CHUG combiners. Of course they aren't legends figures when uncombined

    Legends folks, is there anything good which is Beast Wars related?
    I've read posts and watched videos about Transform Element Rattrap and Blackarachnia - plus a Toyworld Megatron I believe? - but none of them seems to be especially well-regarded.

    Anything else (or better) around, or coming up, worth checking out?
    Thanks in advance! ^_-

    Blackarachnia is the only one I have. It's decent enough, just a bit pricey. If they ever release the new spider legs it would vastly improve it.

    LOL! Thanks. They are just there awaiting cleaning. I will be actually putting them in storage for a while.

    That's pretty much it. There are also several KOs of the DX9 Devastator, varying in size from exact ko to a little smaller than CHUG. I prefer the original set:

    But as @Meekutron pointed out, KBB Devy + CHUG is the way to go:

    The 12” chug combiners like all the combiner wars stuff an the old fansproject/make toys combiners work for now as we wait for more legend combiners. Personally I think the master made stuff works great!

    Eeeeooooo. I have the TE Rattrap and Blackarachnia. I think they are both wonderful little figures with very nice bot and beast modes. Rattrap's beast mode is a bit more mousy and Blackarachnia has a couple parts that swap out depending on the appearance you like. They have announced more possible legs for Blackarachnia like the other fellow mentioned as well as Scorponok. Super excited for that guy.

    There is a TM Megatron from Toyworld as you said. He has two alternate faces that I initially thought were all the same. He is kinda like the original figure in that he's floppy in parts. If you can get him on sale you might feel better about the purchase. Honestly not bad for BW fans.

    Personally I think the recent Hasbro Optimal Optimus pairs nicely with the legend scale BW bots. I'm really hoping Hasbro jumps to a TMII Megatron to pair. Also to save some money from an inevitably expensive 3P figure, should they get there.

    There is also a TransArt legend scale Optimus Primal. An undersized KO of the original. He is a bit too large next to TW TM Megatron but if he's next to just the Maximals I listed, I think he looks pretty good.

    I wish a designer like the Magic Square dude got interested in BW figures. I'm digging what's out there but they're missing a sort of... magic.

    Had to do it. My words backed me into a corner.

    Its really hard not just putting in an order for all the MP TA bots, KOs & 3P. That market is growing so fast with TA now. But the space and time transforming larger bots puts me off. I'm not sure the BW legend scale market is going to survive right now. It seems more like they're testing the waters and with the lukewarm reviews, they might just go away.
