    Speaking of, we might be getting leaks of wave 2 coming up pretty quick huh. It's been a little while now since wave 1 was revealed

    I'm guessing either United or perhaps it'll be the 3rd line to be called Universe

    Personally I'm gonna go with Universe for two reasons;

    #1: Given that Legacy Evolution is named for the Evolution gimmick, United would imply that, like Combiner Wars, the line would feature a combiner gimmick, and certainly the characters that we see in the leeks does not suggest a combiner theme. Of course I could be wrong, the evolution gimmick is focused on weapons, it's possible if it is United, that it will be some sort of combining weapon gimmick.

    #2: The second Universe line (2008) included figures from other continuities to G1, such as Cheetor, Vector Prime and Leo Prime, which is a significant selling point of Legacy as is.

    I am hopeful too, but a leader price point for a voyager sized toy would provide the extra budget needed to do him justice

    Look at the new Armada starscream, of Hot Shot and Leo Prime in Evolutions, didn't Hasbro say that they've seen how fans didn't respond well to the way they tried to G1-ify the Prime designs, Hot Shot and Star Scream may not be as styalized as their previous CHUG figures, but they are a lot closer to being accurate to their original cartoon depictions as opposed to a translation of the deign to a G1 asthetic, with that in mind we can imagine that the new Animated Optimus will be a decently accurate depiction of the original design.

    Why would they give him a gun? The whole narrative point of Animated is that these Autobots weren't warriors and didn't have proper weapons, we all know that Animated Prime will have an Axe.

    Thundertron was suppose to be the antagonist of Prime 3. The original plan for Season 3 was suppose to be them fighting the space pirate Star Seekers with Thundertron as their leader. Heck he even actualy got a toy form aswell which one of his foot can become a peg leg!
    Thundertron - Transformers Wiki

    OT
    Let see

    Ok no suprised we gonna get BW Silverbolt and Tigerhawk.

    Cool we are getting Cybertron Starscream as I liked his tetrajet the most among the other Starscreams toys out there!

    Also nice we're getting a new Sandstorm cos the last one was the T30 (fun fact that I learn T3 Sandstorm was made first and then Springer was the redeco, not the other way around)! I kinda lokey hoped they used the T30 version as I LOVED his hovercraft more than his G1 helicopter.

    No suprised we're getting Animated Optimus cos of that Animated space bridge from the Evolution poster!

    Both examples much more blocky and normally proportioned than Animated designs. They also modified Hotshot to fit their aesthetic removing some of his design,

    because those animated toys aren't readily available and some of them just don't meet the modern standards of TF

    Because guns are cool and one of the main reasons I never liked animated (apart from the ugly designs).

    the fact that we haven't even seen any of the 2023 leaders and we already have listings for the 2024 ones is unreal.

    I'm cautiously hyped for animated optimus, especially as a voyager which means pretty much the whole budget should go to him, and we could possibly get a stand-out like tarn. Guessing he's W1 for the Pulsecon reveal.
    (It'd be funny if we got toxitron out of him but not from laser prime)

    Tigerhawk is also interesting because it means eventually we'll get razorclaw, one of my favourite beastie designs. With the UNI listing name, I wonder if they'll be taking more inspiration from the Universe lines, and hopefully that means we might finally get KD primal in his universe colours?

    Sandstorm is honestly unexpected, but I'm curious to see how they pull it off, and I'm guessing the buggy mode will be the most compromised one, or if the helicopter mode is the better designed one, I almost wonder if they could repaint it into movie universe blackout.

    G2 Grimlock being part of the capsule has to mean the whole thing will be about G2, right? With eye-burning repaints?

    Also given they seem to be touching on T30 characters not done for a while my hopes for Roadbuster are getting higher.

    2024 listings, had to read that twice. o_O 

    G1 Sandstorm is the most exciting one for me, had the og figure as a kid and it was one of my favourites, the colours, the modes, the transformation, it all just worked.
    I really hope they don't overthink it like they did with Blitzwing.

    Animated Prime also potentially exciting but it will depend very much on how far these stray from the original aesthetic.

    Also interested in what that new mystery leader Prime is, hoping for a Machine Wars Prime so we can finally get Thunderclash in like, 2025!
