    I found Swerve at Target and I gotta say I was surprised. He is bigger than I thought. Scout sized actually and more articulation than I thought not like the legends. I'll definitely get the other G1 minibot characters.

    Guess they couldn't get the trademark so they got creative...

    Wouldn't you agree?

    Guess they found a closer substitute. :) 

    (The name "Skrapnel" was first revealed by the placard at San Diego Comic-Con last year, and confirmed when stock photos of the toy in packaging were uploaded to Amazon.ca.)



    Keep in mind that the old Cybertron/Classics/Movie/Universe 2.0/ROTF/RTS/GDO/"Dollar Store" Legends Class has been absorbed into Cyberverse and renamed into "Legion Class".

    For Generations 2.0, "Legends Class" basically means "two-packs". The FOC Legends two-packs were the "data discs", each about the size of an old Legends/Legion figure, whereas the Thrilling 30 Legends are roughly Scout-sized with a smaller Targetmaster figure.

    That would be the best thing ever. Although I'm okay with waiting til it's a three-pack of all the Insecticons with chrome, redesigned a la Skrapnel.

    Good to know. Was out there just a couple of days ago, but didn't see them at the time. Must have missed the first batch.

    Just found them in Portland yesterday, so yes.

    The Target that had them pretty much sold out of everything in one day though, so they went fast. The store started with 4 of each set.
