    If only Hasbro could have subbed in a Diaclone Bombshell recolor and a Gobots Treds or Actionmaster Gutcruncher (basically a green tank recolor of Warpath) - then the whole wave would have been a must-get!

    shockwave makes sense, due to onslaught being sky lynx's wavemate, and bombshell is cool,but i think viper would of been better than warpath, due to him being an army builder,yet being extremely rare....

    Put me on the Viper bandwagon. I have yet to see him in the wild.

    I've been wondering about this since we first saw Sky Reign. WG can't act as a wonderbra, because Sky Lynx doesn't have the chest holes for him to peg into. WG could possibly be a handheld gun, but looks a bit weird....
    Then yesterday i had an idea... Sky Lynx has 5mm holes on the underside of the wings... So in combined mode, if you attach Groove or WG to one of the holes, using the peg on bike mode, you could POTENTIALLY have a neat over-the-shoulder cannon!

    It's almost as if they're pushing the peg warmers back out to stores because they've got a surplus from the previous waves.

    Viper was only available in one Legends wave and was shortpacked in that wave, whereas his casemates Warpath and Groove were carried forward with the Rodimus/Skywarp wave.

    Overall, this is a disappointing assortment, but I'm actually mostly fine with it since I was never particularly interested in a Legends version of Wreck-Gar. Since there are no other new characters in the wave, I can just ignore it completely.

    Shockwave being re-released is great news.

    The fact that they packed so few Shockwaves is embarrassing. Is anyone awake in the offices of Hasbro? :lol  I swear they choose assortments by color alone - "WE NEED MORE ORANGE AND PURPLE IN THIS WAVE!!!" :lolol 

    Warpath? I'm surprised he's selling at all. I like the character, but the Megatron mold messes up the cannon chest, so I would have thought most collectors would pass. :confused:  I think they can do better, honestly. But on the bright side, this just means Warpath's price will drop below $5 at some point, so good hunting for repaints and troop builders! :D 

    (Would it kill them to release a GREY Bombshell on this 2nd/3rd run? :lol  Color variants are easy enough, aren't they?)

    What is with Wreck-Gar's colors? He looks like Wheelie. I thought he was when first expanded the picture and thought "what's up with his face?"

    I for once say re-release those former waves. I didn't really see a big release of those waves here. Tformers don't shelf warm here. Only way I see some of these figs is to order them or on auction sites where the scalpers are selling them at ridiculous prices.

    I'm confused about the olive green chest Bruticus. I know he was shown at SDCC or some other fair with an olive chest, and we were told there would be a running change. But why that coloring? Neither the cartoon or G1 toy had a totally olive green chestplate. If anything, the cartoon one had a dark blue chestplate with bits of green and some purple (from Blast Off).

    Well right, I get that, but the cartoon only ever showed that piece as mostly dark blue, like Onslaught. There were bits of olive green, but the whole chest never was. That's why an entirely olive green chestplate on CW Bruticus doesn't really make sense to me.
