    Chillax man...he was just correcting the actual person who didn't read the OP.


    Hit up almost a dozen Family Dollars getting the first wave, since I'm limiting myself to stuff that's JUST Legends (so anything DOTM-forward mold wise I'm not counting for my collection), I can rest easy and skip the Dinobots. Thankfully Megatron looks identical to his previous release like you said, but if something does turn out to be different I'll have to hunt him too.

    It's weird the box art has him in the same deco as the walmart Cruellock repaint which is clearly black, yet the figure looks dark blue. Might just be a trick of light caused by the flash.

    Either way I like that Grim 100x more than the actual exclusive version. Too bad neither store exists near me as far as I'm aware.

    ~edit~
    Googled and apparently there are 3 Family Dollars around me. WOO HOO let the hunt begin! :D

    I feel like this is a missed opportunity to have legion sized AoE Autobots to ride Deluxe AoE Dinobots, but I guess that's what contructabots is for.

    So much for reading what other people write and putting it into context.

    I was referring to the guy who didn't read my initial post too, I probably should have quoted him rather than the guy I was agreeing with.

    I'm digging the deco on that Strafe. He'd make a nice parrot for Thundertron.

    Hes got a purple and white insignia in this picture if you zoom in. At least this one does. There could always be another running change...

    Purple on the packaging illustration, yes, but both the insert photo and the toy aren't clear enough to tell even boosted up in size.

    Update?

    Has anyone else seen or heard ANY news on these new figures (specifically Grimlock & Strafe)? It's been a couple of months and I don't know of anyone who has them in-hand yet. They aren't on ebay (to my knowledge) either. Really looking forward to getting ahold of them.
