    I’ll probably get the Magificus and Grapple set as well. Never really been a fan of Grapple but I prefer Perceptor with a mouthplate so I’ll just swap heads on the two of them.

    Do we know what specific sellers are going to get the medic bed? I’m buying these guys first chance I get, so I might as well order from somewhere I can get a freebie

    ShowZ lists a preorder bonus, so they should be a safe bet.

    They may have changed it, it actually states the table as being the bonus.

    Darn you Dr.Wu, I didn't want to get into legends! (Of course the pre-order is done). I will control and not get all of them, but I'll need a few more Decepticons at least.

    Good luck! It's very hard to stop with one or two.

    The thing is that 30+ years ago, I hoped so much that they would do such small versions, and with Micromasters hitting around that time, I couldn't understand why Hasbro was being so stupid as to miss the boat and not do the main characters as such... Lots of them were fairly ok-ish substitutions, but not really have the feel of being what they could be. For years I've stated how much they should do it still... And here we are, but my collection is too large and knowing that the diversity of character would never meet what we have under the mainline, I find that it's kinda too late for me. The other 3rd parties are also just too expensive for me in terms of value,and still too big for what I really wanted, and the Hasbro cores (of the main G1 characters) are way overpriced for fairly cheap/limited versions...

    And then comes Dr.Wu, a pretty perfect mini size with amazing quality within an acceptable price range.

    I have the 3 coneheads/Cosmo set, Optimus, Ultra and Delta Magnus, and now this set on pre-order.

    What I'd like is a few reissues for the seekers that I missed, and a tank Megatron or Galvatron. Outside those, it's going to be a decision as they come, but I just can't go beyond that, in good part due to my health issues that impacts all aspects of my life...

    I'm just so very happy to see such toys (and get a few) while I'm still here to see it.

    I'm glad others are excited for Hauler. I'm not, but if I want Preceptor, I guess I gotta be. Le sigh.

    I’ve wanted a Magnificus desk bot for work (I work in a lab), so this will fit the bill nicely! I considered MS Perceptor, but I never liked the colors of that character, and I didn’t want the toon face.

    I collect legends, but never bought a Dr Wu figure before. Bonus that he’ll be packaged with Grapple— one of my faves.

    So he'll come with both Grapple and a purple medical bed? Excellent.

    I just hope Dr Wu isn't kidding when he showed that picture of the purple bed.

    Edit: makes sense that both variations of microscope and truck come with a medical bed. Not sure if they'll try a combined tray for all 3 or give us separate boxes for each.

    Yes, but orange with Perceptor, not gray

    I dunno— I think the grapple attachment is far more character-appropriate, and it further distinguishes him from Inferno. I like it.

    That's the one thing I don't understand about this line... Dr. Wu is known for making weapon accessories for other figures from other lines, yet so many figures from his own line are without guns??? The king of weapon accessories won't give his own figures weapons??? All of the minibots should be weaponized in my opinion.

    For Hauler it's fine, but it's like a thing that was used once in the cartoon, whereas he pretty much always has the gun hand.

    I'll be buying both, but I'll be selling Magnificus and Hauler as I just don't need them. I am looking forward to Perceptor. And I love Inferno, so Grapple(orange) is going to be good for completing that particular set.

    Hmm, will probably pick up an extra Magnificus set to use as SG Perceptor.

    Maybe I’ll try dying the Grapple in that second set to make my own version of SG Grapple, since his color scheme has never really been officially revealed.
