    Okay, still can't read Japanese. When do they come out, how much per? And will there be a way to buy singles?

    Damn, too bad BBTS isn't selling singles (atleast yet). Really don't feel like taking the $150 chance on a case. Really hoping that the local hobby shop picks up some cases. Wouldn't mind finally getting a Jazz (didn't bother getting one the first time), Thundercracker, Megs (without orange plug), and Bumblebee (if the paint is any different from the original US one).

    The only ones I don't want are the ROTF OP and Megs. I want the rest, especially Bee (no Autobot sigil? I hope they put a rubsign like the RTS version) and the Jazz, I sold mine before. Looking forward to the Megs without the orange tip...

    And here's my chance to grab the G1 legends that I couldn't find in stores and grab a Thundercracker version all at the same time.

    That Thundercracker looks really good... I got a chance to handle the Legends Starscream, so I love the genius behind the figure.

    I might have to seek that one out, as well as the Bumblebee, Megatron and Trailbreaker.

    Thundercracker has always been my favorite seeker from day 1. I loved his bio, and I thought his colors were the coolest. Thus my frustration with every single one of his releases in the past 6 or 7 years (save for Generations and Titanium) being exclusives and expensive as hell.

    HasTak has consistently been knocking it out of the park with these Legends figures, IMHO. I have to say, if Hasbro wants to keep collecting money from me after they have produced all the Classics style figures I want, they can certainly do so by releasing more characters in Legends form.

    Damn, never was a fan of the blind box lucky draw type of sales. Hopefully Hasbro will release Thundercracker and Skywarp as separate Legends figures sooner or later.

    I still missing Prowl and Prime so I hope I don't get any movie figures because those will be tough to resell.

    Be patient: Hasbro will get around to T-Cracker, Skywarp, Smokescreen, Bluestreak, Hoist and anyone else they can milk out of the moulds. They're just focused on DOTM right now.

    Good, this probably means more waves, and more people will have a chance at those ones they couldn't find, like Wheelie.

    I'll buy them by the case, sell off the extras. Shit, slap the RTS/Generations name on them because I had to use the same strategy to get what I wanted from those lines too.

    With all these Legends I'll need multiple Cyberverse Arks!

    You really think so? Maybe some of them, but not all. And that Trailbreaker does not make a good Hoist.

    Will have to see how much BBTS charges for the box.

    No way I'm buying a case to get one little repaint.

    They've had it up for preorder for weeks. It's a case of 24 according to their site (despite the boxes only being 12 figures).

    Nothing says "We love screwing you" more then blind boxes. Absolutely rediculous.

    Well it'll be a trick to get Prowl when he's not in that set. That's Jazz there. And your hope is in vain. When they say these are random, that's a bit of a lie (from what I know). You buy this display case of 12 your going a full set of 8. Plus doubles of the more popular characters. So I'd guess there are 2 BB's, 2 of each kind of Prime and 2 of one of the Megatron's.

    And for those wondering about the cost I found them on HLJ for 4600 Yen a display case.

    I use Spychanger Hoist among the Legends, and movie Legends Smokescreen fits fine with the Classic Legends, unless you really need a Bluestreak repaint.
