    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.

    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.

    So...

    Micromasters confirmed dead since end of Earthrise.
    Tiny Turbos apparently dead except straight repacks.
    Botbots dead silence as the "unloved stepchildren."

    Looks like it's time for me to take off for a while again... :(  Mattel Jurassic is taking T-rex size bites out of my wallet so not having Hasbro competing for those dollars will mean a little less tightening of the belt. Ditto with Hexbug apparently dropping the Nano line...

    I thought some heavy retooling could give him combiner parts. That may not work though.

    Oh for sure. I meant in 2023 and beyond, though. Like hopefully we start to see RiD2001, Animated, Rescue Bots, more WFC/FoC, a whole bunch!

    Skids looks better irl *buy*
    Bulkhead looks better irl *also buy*
    Arcee is good, but I think i'm gonna have to buy it's repaints as other characters. Flamewar and Flareup would be perfect for this mold.
    Honestly Mark didnt deserve the hate he received on social media for Bulkhead. He's a nice guy, looked so excited to reveal these awesome figures and he's just the guy we need for Legacy. He obviously loves what he does and I hope to see more revealed from him. I'm stoked for the rest of Legacy.

    This has probably already been discussed, but what do you guys think the purple dragon/dinosaur in the Legacy artwork is? Doesn’t look very BW Megatron to me but who knows.

    He sure does, but there was only 1 HOF spot to fill, and Tarantulas doesn't share his name with anyone else. They need to clearly define this is a different Inferno to the G1 Inferno.

    Like I said, it's just a suspicion, but it's something I wouldn't put past Hasbro -- using a HOF as a marketing tool, rather than actual recognition.

    Honestly I don't mind 50/50, as long as I get what I'm after. If anything I prefer it since it's cheaper. But the more non G1 characters they sell the more I'll buy.

    Personally I think that would just result in a very bad figure. And assuming Motormaster is G1 accurate him and prime don’t really even share a silhouette. I’m guessing it’ll be 100% new mold.
