    I dare say that Dragstrip i probably the peak in the designs I've seen. I may get the Stunticons in their entirety at this rate.

    I do wonder how the F1 Con will combine, since I don't see the Prime Wars Pegs.

    I do imagine it being like the Magic Square Menasor or the NewAge Devastator (I know having whole robot pieces be attachments to a skeleton of the combiner is pretty bad, and that compared to how much partsforming typically went into combiners like the Prime Wars ones with removed heads and feet, this feels like a bigger cheat, but honestly... I think if it does this and avoids the majority of the Combiner Wars look that was made in compromise (And people complained Earthrise Optimus was ALL LEGS...), he'll be a win for me)

    So Laser Prime's shoulders don't rotate? And that's as far out as his arms go? I think he's gonna look pretty silly without them rotating in poses.

    Does Prime not have the articulated hands anymore, or are my eyes just getting worse?

    I’m honestly expecting leaders in the next 5 years to be deluxes that cost $60

    Hot damn, all of this looks great to me! Skids and Bulkhead look better here, Dragstrip and Kickback are cool, Arcee looks great, Laser Prime looks fantastic!

    This is about where I am; like you say, the budgets cuts are obvious (especially on Bulkhead) and they're too expensive to go all-in. I'll probably preorder Dragstrip at MSRP and wait for a GameStop style 20% off sale on the rest.

    They don't look bad – I actually like Arcee and Kickback quite a bit – but they don't look worth $23.

    You are not. And this is how Hasbro is handling things as of lately. If they are not releasing budget figures and increasing the price at the same time, they are making you buy the same figure over and over because they didnt include the character's signature accessory the first time they released it (well, this is a complain more to the Lightning Collection and Marvel Legends but worth to mention).

    I could thank them they are saving me some money at the long end.

    I think Legends scale will be the new norm in a few years because of inflation.

    I would assume he does. Otherwise it would be impossible for him to hold the Matrix that's included unless it's been retooled with 5 mm pegs like Big Convoy's had.

    You’re spot on. This feels like potp and FOC/AOE all over again. I remember that era of figures feeling and looking like KO’s and this is giving me those vibes.

    I would definitely buy a Ransack from Arcee if he got sufficient retooling.

    Sorry if this has been talked about, but I just realized Arcee has a nose. Why

    Bulkhead and Arcee are the standout wins for me. That is something I’ve always wanted to see done to non-G1 characters and its what has me most excited for Legacy outside of the obscured characters. Which at this point thats all I can add to an IMO perfect setup I have, more obscured late year G1 guys.

    I must say though I am disappointed Blaster wasn’t shown as he was who I was most excited for. But I do look forward to Laser Prime as I feel he looks alone like the final step towards perfection from the last two attempts.

    Drag Strip and the Stunticons are an easy pass. With increased prices and having moved I need to pick and choose. I can reason replacing and upgrading my Dinobots and Insecticons with new ones but not them. Honestly CW and TR was peak Transformers for me and I don’t see myself replacing the CW versions.

    Skids and Kickback, are fine. The Legends Insecticons aren’t the greatest so I look forward to replacing them, especially since now they’ll have their actual guns. Makes me excited and hopefully once all three come out they make a Salvo, Shothole, & Zaptrap three pack. Skids, I’m torn on I’m sure I’ll preorder him with everyone else but I love the Thrilling 30 to much to replace him, look forward to his repaints.

    @Black Convoy - you've probably got them already, but some official pix up on Facebook:

    Nice to see Kickback is looking less tiny than I assumed based on the individual pic.
