    That's not really a thing I've seen happening in Transformers. Anything's possible, but uh, this packaging is getting retired in the US, this isn't a project that was announced, discussed, or originated in the US, and as we know the domestic arm of Hasbro will throw a perfectly good product line in the trash if they can't get it to sell to the major retailers, let alone a bunch of quirky repaints.

    Oh god I want those Legends. Why are those not coming out stateside? They're obvious repaints, they get weapons (which was my biggest problem with some of those the first time they came out), and... Thundercracker!

    no thank you on all of them. some of them are REALLY trying too hard.

    the only one that i'd remotely want is hot spot.

    plus, legends wheelie is enough wheelie for my collection.

    I'd have to see clearer pics before pre-ordering, and some are delightfully daft (Wheelie from Jazz? Really?) but I have to say the quirky nature appeals no end. Could certainly be tempted by Springer just for the killer alt mode.

    Looking at them more... I think I really want that Wheelie (yeah he's too big, but I love the mold so much & those colors are just striking) and that FrankenCliffjumper.

    Dammit.

    What would a few Asian exclusives have to do with FE's end?

    Wasn't that line cut in favor of DOTM and PRID?

    Nooooooo... these had absolutely nothing to do with that.

    They canceled FE Prime because no retailers in the US wanted to carry them.

    These are Asian only exclusives.


    -ZacWilliam, you can think these are daft, as some of them certainly are, but your pinning an entirely unrelated sin to them.

    I don't know man. The use of FE Bulkhead and Cliffjumper for classics Brawn and Cliffjumper just seems weird to me. Like the heads don't suit the bodies.

    I'm with you on Wheelie. I mean, if I get that mould as Wheelie, it'll negatively affect how I see my United Jazz.
    I'm not hating on Wheelie, but I still think the Legend one was the right Wheelie. He should be unique!

    It looks like Motormaster has a new head, it sticks up higher than Optimus' and has that port for his sword. Hope it's nice and G1 accurate.

    Think I've finally decided I do want that Hot Spot, too bad they didn't give him a blue head, then I would have bought an extra to swap with Pyro.

    How so?

    Is giving them a new head or weapons lazy?

    They just seem like typical Hasbro repaints that they would do themselves only this time they didn't. Only Hasbro don't do this many new heads.

    oh,i thought they canceled the FE for this because of the use of the FE bulkhead and Cliff as brawn and cliff with a new head.

    I physically hate that wheelie. That mold deserves so much better.
