    We still miss a Voyager and a Leader in wave 1. Almost certainly those are Blaster and Dragon Megatron slots. The'll probably reveal them during the next streaming.

    And I was the crazy one for saying they were planning the combiners again 2 years ago!
    • Deluxe Dragtrip
      • G1 appearance-look in all of the yellow, inspired from the “Masquerade” G1 episode.
      • 2 Dark Energon blasters, combine into rifle that hearkens his double-barreled blasters.
      • First of five Stunticons to form Menasor.
      • No combiner mode shown yet.

    Logo looks great but the art direction here is really bad. they are relying way way too much on 3d renders here. ugh!

    Why is Superman's Fortress of Solitude in there?

    and what's with the Frozen ball of ice looking planet? Please don't tell me that's Legacy's version of Cybertron?

    Blaster yes, but I think Prime is expected to be by himself for wave one. 2 per case. Dragon Megs is wave 3 I think?

    I'll be sad if the new Menasor doesn't use Combiner Wars connections, I really liked that gimmick. But Dragstrip looks incredible so nice work there!

    Having said that, I never got Menasor, so I'm all in regardless. Just curious how many limited edition collector's sets Takara will put out. Trying to figure out the "best" version of CW Computron is a nightmare.

    An easy fix. All you need is some paint remover, a rag, and a paint marker. I don't know about you guys, but I'm painting them yellow, partly because it stands out more, but mainly due to nostalgia. I'm not opposed to blue-eyed Primes, but my first TF show was Armada, so naturally, yellow is my preference.

    That's the "portal" or nexus that leads everyone to the multiverse, or somesuch.

    I think Bulkhead works way better than Arcee because the legacy toy could be thought of as G1 Bulkhead. But for me, that doesn't really work with Arcee because she already (obviously) has a G1 version. So I can't put her with my Prime shelf or my G1 shelf, so I don't know why she exists. And I also just like the Bulkhead toy's overall look far better than this Arcee. That being said, I'm hyped to see what else this line has in store for us!

    I'm kinda let down on the first wave as a whole, I'll probably skip them unless they wow me in reviews or in-person. But I'd totally buy the Laser Prime mold if Scourge looks like that. Phenomenal digibash!

    Wack. Prime is most likely going to shelf warm by the time Megatron gets released so good business move Ha$bro.

    Despite popular belief, you probably shouldn't be able to see buildings with windows from space. This version of cybertron looks fine, cold generic metal planet, it's a bit blue but that's hardly the end of the world

    Yeah, as far as Leaders go Laser Prime is wave one, Blitzwing is wave two, and Dragon Megatron is wave 3.

    I wonder if they will do something in the bio of Arcee to see if she is the same G1 arcee just rescanned?

    Laser Prime looks great!

    I’ll be passing on the others, but I know future waves of Legacy contain lots of figures that I’m excited about!

    Will the VR game be available on consoles, or is that something else altogether?

    Oh, and the Devastation soundtrack is epic and so very deserving of an official release!

    Interesting why they put Hot Rod/Rodimus Prime with the sword in the main artwork? Curious if there is something more than meets the eye? There's already a rumored accurate magenta colored Voyager Hot Rod, maybe this is it?

    Ironic, Skids and Bulkhead both looked better in the stream than in the stock images, but I thought the others all looked worse due to the posing and camera angles. I wonder if the reaction to them would've been more positive if this had been the first time we'd seen them.

    Honestly, it all feels a bit underwhelming to me, probably because the two most exciting things (to me) had already been revealed and it was a pretty small wave 1. None of them look bad, but none of them look that amazing to me either. Skids and Laser Prime definitely look like the best ones, and while I won't be getting Prime, I have a feeling I'll want Scourge if I can find him for a fair price. I'm glad his trailer looks way better than ER Prime's.

    Still think Bulkhead looks decent but I'll need to see reviews before I know whether I'll want him or not.

    Arcee looks like she's probably pretty good, but her robot mode just looks a bit off in all the images. It's hard to tell, I think it's just the posing. She looks like she'd be fine in a more straightforward standing pose. I do really like the bike mode though, and I'm interested to see her get retooled into Road Rocket and hopefully Flamewar and Flareup. I'll probably want to pick up one version of this mold at some point.

    Kickback was always my least favorite Insecticon design, so he looks fine but I think I'll skip him and wait and get Bombshell or Shrapnel instead. I don't care about them enough to dedicate the shelf space to getting all three.

    Dragstrip looks alright but I don't love him like I was hoping I would. Obviously way better than the CW one, and a better F1 mode than Kingdom Mirage, but he feels a little under-detailed. Both modes definitely have promise though so hopefully I'll be able to improve him with some extra paint.

    I do really like the packaging! Still looking forward to seeing the rest of the line, especially Knock-Out, Starscream, and Jhiaxus.

    That criss cross effect is a tear in the universe and the planet looks like Cybertron being sucked into it

    Arcee looks way better than bulkhead, and G2 prime looks great, but why do they both look like they are missing $5 worth of budget? Like Prime’s hands look like they belong on a legends figure, they look so bad. And arcee just looks…. Cheap. Idk what it is but it looks like a significant step backwards after WFC.

    I\'m honestly most excited about the new packaging. It really makes a splash, and a needed change from the WFC Trilogy boxes!

    I wondered about that myself but I'm fine with them being totally different characters just like how G1 Megatron and BW Megatron are (BW Megatron took that name as an homage, etc.) There's also for example quite a few humans named John, etc.
