    I’m honestly surprised that Covert Agent Ravage is still in stock at Pulse. The first thing I did after work today was order one, and he’s still available--what? :eek: 
    I even managed to snag G2 Laser Prime. He’s gonna make a sweet-looking Scourge; I tell you h’wat.
    Had to order Dragstrip off of another site; but I’m happy, managed to secure the figures I was most looking forward to.
    Skids and Bulkhead I’ll pick up if I happen to see them in a store.

    There were 5 reveals for Legacy. 2 were Prime, 1 was G2 and 2 were G1. That's actually not that bad when it comes to diversity. Sure, G2 Prime is G1 Prime, but the character appearance is still completely different and we know that G1 will always have the majority when it comes to presence in a line.

    Honestly I agree. With the wave breakdowns definitely pointing to a G1 heavy wave I hope that the next couple of years of Legacy have more nonG1 characters!

    Do you think Legacy Motormaster is an ER Optimus prime mold or a new mold?

    It has to be a new mold. It's a Commander and a combiner, ER Optimus is neither.

    Probably because they're essentially charging $40 for a better than average deluxe.

    I'll just leave my quick thoughts: Seeing these figures doesn't put me in a positive mindset. Its called "Legacy" and includes characters from other interpretations of the franchise but it doesn't live up to what I was hoping/expecting. I was under the impression this would be Hasbro celebrating other incarnations similar to Thrilling 30. A sort of crossover line celebrating the brand's 40 years. Instead what we have are the sloppy seconds of WfC and non-G1 characters retconned to fit into G1 style as filler. Something few, if any, were asking in specific instances.

    I can understand wanting a G1 Bulkhead but a G1/Prime Arcee? At the very least she's not a repaint of Earthrise Arcee with a new head. Even still I don't see Legacy, or any future line up, showcasing more of the franchise beyond G1. If anything, its the opposite. It's taking elements away from their respected incarnations and incorporating them into G1 thinking that will make them more appealing. For some it works but not for me. For comparison sake I did not like when RiD15 re-reintroduced Soundwave with a more G1-inspired appearance. It removes the identity Prime Soundwave had for the sake of nostalgia or conformity to the brand. This does not make me excited for Knockout or Starscream as I expect both to be put through the same treatment as Bulkhead and Arcee. I won't repost my G1 Knockout meme but the feeling is still there.

    Its just my opinion so I'll end here

    Are you the one who likes sword wielders to be able to hinge their wrists down to hold it properly? I apologize if I got the wrong person lmao, but I may have some hope for Laser Prime. In the first pic holding the sword, you can see that his wrist sits flat against the square face of his forearm. Whereas the other hand, holding the axe, the edge of the hand seems to be at a slight weird angle compared to his forearm. It looks like a downward wrist swivel to me

    No I was legitimately curious. Since Motormaster tended to be a Optimus prime redeco.

    Ordered laser Prime and Bulkhead despite my complaints about them both. I’m probably gonna be very selective about my purchases in this line, but Bulkhead is one of my favorite characters so I can’t just skip him. Maybe he’ll be better in hand, he did look better on the stream after all.

    Oh, sorry. I mean I don’t see how they could make a combiner Motormaster out of a non combining Earthrise Optimus. If they do I’ll be genuinely impressed.

    See, I was counting Laser Prime as just another incarnation of G1 Prime so really we just got four G1 characters and two Prime characters. If they would have swapped just one of those for something from a different continuity, even if it were one of the Prime figures, I would have been fine with it.

    Idk something about laser optimus\'s proportions seem a bit funky to me (more than earthrise prime)

    Looks like the hands might fold downward for transformation. So that way it technically has a forward tilt, although it'll partially untransform the arm.

    I figured he could be a heavy retooled and the trailer plus better engineering could beef up him up to commander class. A new mold makes sense though.

    I can't wait for us to move past this Prime bruhaha so we can get onto the inevitable Armada Starscream is a retool of cw silver bolt.

    We already know what's coming and this is probably going to be the spread across each wave. Still 1000x better than what we had before.
