    ...he's not an old legion/scout, he is a "true" legends, he first came out in thrilling 30 (this is when legends class started in generations) with a micromaster. legion figures are smaller than legends and scouts are larger and more akin to cliffjumper

    He is especially awesome with the Strengthen Equipment add-ons and the Shapeways foot upgrade

    I was forever on the verge of getting those, but never quite committed. I think I always had the sneaking suspicion that a 'better' Trailbreaker was coming.

    Is hollow bad? I struggle to keep up with the tide of popular opinion's ebb and flow. I'm sure I'd have seen someone complain about hollow limbs if that was any sort of an issue.

    What? What's behind me? No, just tell me.

    You may want to still skip it... I was especially careful with my 2nd copy and it still broke in the exact same place. The breakage doesnt really comprimise either mode, but I dont know if ERCJ will replace him or not since I've got a parts-forming CJ either way...

    I really like T30 Arcee and I think she looks amazing in my display right in front of Springer. ER Arcee will have to be REALLY good for me to replace her.

    I think I have overcompensated for not having a G1-era Arcee...I own the Energon, T30, and Titans Return versions.

    The sheer solidity and playability overall far outshadow any hollowness. My favorite Silverbolt toy by far.

    She’s a great figure, truly. When I say ‘replaced’ I really mean ‘moved to the G1 shelves’ where she’ll stand with other outliers like Darkmount, Death’s Head, Unicron, and Impactor.

    there's also a MASSIVE difference between hollows that accommodate transformation schemes and just hollowing and emptying things as much as you possibly can to reduce materials and weight.

    Plus, just look at Silverbolts nicely detailed and sculpted underside of his wings compared to Earthrises Starscream's nasty ribbed hollowed out ones (at least it's not as bad as CW where the hallowed out wings were forward facing in 'bot mode.

    I'd love to have build quality like the Universe 2.0 Ultras back in the line today (I guess they'd be Leaders today)

    Onslaught is another good ultra which j also prefer over the CW/UW. Apples to cheaper oranges that combine sure, but those ultras aside from Powerglide were damn fine toys. The shining stars in a confusing line(Universe/Classics 2.0)

    Ahh. See I'm one of those weird "one figure per character" guys so for me, replaced means "pack your things and get out!"

    Generally speaking I am too, unless there’s scope for them to go to another ‘continuity’ shelf. If T:30 Arcee couldn’t go anywhere else she’d likely be on the ‘sell’ pile.
