    I think they did that on purpose to homage the launching disk weapons that the original Laser Op had.

    I'm sure he is but he's not being released as a Commander. Laser Op is being released as a Leader and doesn't have the engineering of a Commander like Rodimus did.

    Honestly, I expect to see figures with missing heads due to that weird TikTok trend with teens stealing heads off of figures with windowless packaging like that and posting weird-ass videos about it.

    Pages upon pages upon pages of comments debating how and whether fictional characters identify gender is somehow on topic but my posts get deleted as clean ups? (twice now) Way to keep your eyes on the prize, guys!

    They don't come off that easily compared to the stuff they're currently doing it to. Meanwhile the fad has gotten so bad my local Target is taking the LeBron heads off and keeping them behind electronics.

    An attempt to try and stick to the transient rules of this thread so that the post doesn’t get deleted. Keeping it on topic (the toys!) AND giving the men behind the curtain what it is that they apparently want to see:

    Can MotorMaster identify as Arcee so I can pick up a Commander for $25?

    I'm going to have a hard time throwing those boxes away. They look really beautiful.

    That's true. It does take significantly more effort to pull a head off a Transformer figure in most cases. Though I'll say never underestimate the effort some moronic teenager will put into obtaining internet points and the general apathy of retail workers.

    Also, pretty bad that the employees are now having to remove the LeBron heads and hold them in electronics. Do they have a sign telling people to come to electronics to get their heads?

    The entire first wave, Pulse exclusives Galvatron and Ravage 2 pack all pre-ordered. Let's see what's next for Legacy.

    Very vibrant eye catching art being used, not going to have any trouble standing out on the shelves lol.

    Speaking of the art, I noticed that the poster they showed is all wave one characters so I'm wondering if we'll see a different poster for each wave, that would be neat.

    I think it is very much likely that what we are seeing is a line affected by COVID. Kingdom was too far along into production to change direction significantly, but Legacy's offerings definitely give that "budget was slashed" feeling I got from things like POTP and FOC.

    I'm not so sure about Prime Soundwave. I'd love it, but some say it's a repack of Brickwave

    Well yeah, but I meant shoulder armour so huge that it's over twice the size of your head. At that point realism is out the window.

    I'll have to see more to decide on those shoulders.

    I am fine with the first wave being a long ways away. Gives me more time to save up money for them after the beating my bank account got with WfC and Victory Saber.

    Does this mean we have to change the acronym to “CHUGL?”
