    I'd hate to be THAT guy, but if these are simple repaints, why do they need to be separated from the other releases? Why not release these with a batch of other Legends, and thereby reduce the inevitable shelf-warming that happens when a retail store orders a wave in bulk? :banghead: 

    Most of the Targets I go to are still choking on vanilla Optimus and BB. There's no incentive for them to clearance them out (or rather, they don't seem to want to lose their money on these). Either this wave won't hit my local retail, or the Swerve/Cosmos wave won't. Toys are being skipped because of a crappy manufacturing schedule!!!

    Did Hasbro get overambitious by trying to continue the IDW line with the AoE line? Cause the way I see it, the 1-steppers and Titans are being released in abundance while the IDW line gets delayed, delayed, delayed. And wouldn't you know it? The AoE line doesn't seem to be moving all that well, while most of us are still looking for a local Swerve/Cosmos.

    Hasbro? You're doing it wrong! ;)

    I don't see an issue with Cliffjumper sharing Bumblebee's head here. The head's design makes it work as both of them.

    Most of the Targets around here only have a couple Tailgates on the pegs, another has both Cosmos and Tailgate. So does that mean the schedule is actually working?

    Man, Nemesis Prime looks great, especially for a Legends class. I still haven't seen Cosmos and Payload yet in person.

    It's a Legends figure, how would we even be able to TELL if the head were retooled? Magnifying glass? The difference between BB and CJ's faces is subtle enough as is.

    I can't resist a CJ who's paranoid of his own giant gun.

    Normally, I'd be annoyed with the similar heads for 'Bee and Cliffjumper, but the way they decoed it up, painting the horns silver, as opposed to leaving them the plastic's color, invoking the TF: Prime horns is a nice compromise.

    At first I though the head was retooled.

    Cliffjumper looks pretty good. Not sure if I need another CJ in my collection though.

    Nemesis Prime? Always room for one more.

    Is Suppressor supposed to be anybody? I can't think of anyone who would qualify for "Yellow Buggy With Suspect Loyalty" except maybe, possibly Punch. But all the others were intended as homages. Chop Shop, Groundpounder, Reflector, Spinister ...

    So who is Suppressor!?

    Yeah they would complain if we didn't get a repaint into Cliffjumper too.

    I didn't know Surpressor was even a previous character before now.

    These look great trying to get all these Legends repaints or not.

    It is odd how they are flip flopping some of the targetmasters I like it, I guess there all on separate sections not cast together with that figure.

    No it just means that's what they got in if it was working then both of them would have the similar saturation of figures.
