    Again, having Dragstrip really doesn't look right. At least that's my opinion.

    It's not intended to be permanent. I get why they did it. it guarantees that people will be keeping an eye on both waves. it's redundant for me, since I want both combiners but they're hoping the Superion folks will buy Dragstrip because he's there and then finish off Menaso, because why not.

    Has anyone figured out a good use for the "nipple pegs" on the Voyagers. From reading other posts, it seems like they aren't truly intended for any of the legends we already have. Makes me wonder what other surprises we have coming down the road.

    I got my hands on Legends Skrapnel and CW Legends Bombshell. Is there any chance there will be a Legends Kickback?

    It seems reasonable that there would be. I just wished the purple and gold/yellow on Skrapnel and Bombshell match.

    Picked up my 3 deluxes at Target for $11.99 tonight. I'm really impressed with these guys. Can't wait to get the other two.

    I got 2 at target today as well for 11.99 each. they had alpha bravo as well but I don't care for him. they didn't have any dragstrips so I guess someone beat me to them.

    I'm gonna predict Kickback comes out and then Takara does a three pack with matching decos.

    im not caught up on IDW, but I thought someone had said that he was dead. If he's not, I can almost guaranty we will get a retool of the legends seekers as a Slingshot breastplate for Superion.

    Man, I would love and hate that (because Ill have already bought Kickback once by the time they did something like that). truthfully, though, to bring Skrapnel in line, we'd need a retool with a better head sculpt and pincers that actually cover his head.

    I hope they retool air raid as slingshot so we can get him as a deluxe. :D

    Did they have a estimated date when wave 2 of Deluxe and Voyagers will be released?

    honestly, it would not shock me, at all, if the last wave of CW is some kind of deluxe version of the figures that got subbed out. One the one hand, it will give purists the combiner they wanted to begin with and on the other, it's a last show at finishing the teams if you're someone who never managed to find all 4 limbs in stores.

    I really want them to do something cool with the nipple pegs on the voyagers, though. Possibly even something better than the obvious thing everyone's been saying of special legends figures going there.
