    yeah. I don’t do stickers. I have bad double jointed arthritic hands and don’t trust myself with applying any stickers.

    plus, some of the stickers from Prime Wars are already starting to peel. I’m not a fan of stickers.

    That would SUCK. Go Shooter is white and Siren is gray… Also different shades of blue. I’d much rather have one a mainline release and the other as Selects.

    Definitely would say this is the way. Goshooter seems more like the Selects type imo

    Agreed. Maybe Nightbeat will be the Siege Sideswipe of Legacy and we get all of them. ;)

    People saying that Siren needs his mold because his transformation is different to Nightbeat really need to take a good long look at the recent Generations Selects Seacons....

    Those are really Gen Selects in name only. They're a Takara endeavor that would be releases in Unite Warriors if that line still existed. Hasbro's Selects are typically headswaps at most.

    ...there is literally only two buzzworthy original molds. Both brand new

    Yeah. But imagine Bumper, Glyph, and Tapout all from both the Earthrise Cliffjumper Mold and/or the Netflix Bumblebee Mold.

    Okay, not sure what you are getting at. Of course those would be great. Doesn't take away from my theory that they are going to reuse the Cybertron Bee as a Cliff jumper as that is their go to

    I agree that they'll most likely reuse Origin Bee as Origin Cliff. I'll have to get the mold in hand before deciding if I want to indulge in non-show G1 reuses, though.

    But thanks to Siege I have a number of them already!

    Origin bee would make a great Aileron, now that I have him in hand. Enough so I might pick up another down the road to repaint.

    If by any chance Legacy will be revealed at Pulsecon this year, we have 2 months to find leaked listings.

    I'm really hoping they won't be handled at all, I hate that gimmick. I especially don't want Bludgeon as a Pretender.

    The Takara Seacons aren't under the umbrella of "nuCHUG" - they're a continuation of the old CHUG/Prime Wars stuff. Meaning, they're reuses of old molds which in addition to being inaccurate to their legacy likenesses, don't have effects parts compatibility, don't have increased quality, nor aren't necessarily within the unified scale. The HM Jr's molds shouldn't be treated like old molds. We *should* expect higher quality from HasTak as time goes on.

    Also,

    Yeah, I agree that Pretenders are one of the most stupid and pointless gimmicks in Transformers history, and I hope that Bludgeon and Skullgrin return as normal Transformers. I don't see the appeal in having a robot toy that's in a weird looking organic shell. They're up there with Action Masters and R.E.D. in being out of place and redundant in the franchise. I know it sounds like I'm ranting or trying to start a fight, but I'm curious to hear an argument for Pretenders even belonging in Transformers, because I'm seriously confused as to why people want them back so badly.
