    Time to talk about what we actually did see, I guess. My salt from what we didn't see is very hard to contain here.

    Kickback: Looks amazing. He's a damn near perfect incarnation, but, I honestly don't know if I can be bothered to buy the insecticons again. Especially not when rumors of deluxe insecticons being made from these molds are swirling around. I'll stick with my legends Kickback for now and might change my mind later.

    Prime Arcee: Looks like a pretty sweet mold. I don't need another Arcee, but I'm interested in seeing it as Road Rocket and hopefully Flamewar. Those will be bought, this will be skipped.

    Drag Strip
    : The best reveal, and the only one I'll be getting. He finally has six wheels, and while I don't see how this combiner is going to function but that might be a good thing. He looks awesome. I'm hoping the rest of the stunticons can carry this energy all the way to Menasor.

    Laser Optimus Prime: Looks pretty good but I don't really care. Has anyone noticed that there's been a leader Optimus in every single line since Titans Return? I won't be buying this figure as RID Scourge either, as I'm happy with my Netflix Nemesis Prime.

    So all in all, I'll be getting just Skids, Drag Strip, and Bulkhead. Bulkhead is easily still the coolest reveal to me. I don't know why they shafted Blaster and the core classes at this reveal cycle, but hopefully we don't have to wait too long to see them. Between the negative reception around Bulkhead, (my favorite figure), and the failure to reveal what I was most excited about, most of the wind has been taken out of my sails for Legacy so far. Even though I like what they did reveal, I'm still left bummed that I have to wait even longer to see Rewind.

    I got all my orders in. Ordered Ravage, and PO'd the Galvatron pack, Skids, Bulkhead, Kickback, and Dragstrip.

    I may end up getting Laser Prime, I'm not sure yet (if he had the proper blue color and the mural on the side of the trailer he'd be an instant grab).

    I'll also probably end up getting Prime Arcee, she tried out way better to me than I expected, and I'll probably at the very least get her to keep in bike mode. But I'll probably wait until she actually comes out.

    Probably had to push their windows way out to compensate for all the shortages and shipping issues.

    Thanks for the heads up. I didn’t see him, too busy refreshing the Ravage page. I circled back and got him.

    This is a crazy busy thread and I did try to dig through a few pages to see if this information was already shared so please don't hate me for asking: did they say when the exclusives will be available to non-premium members? Got my eye on that Galvatron.

    Woot! Got my Wave 1 and reformatting Galvatron order in. Shocked that Galvy was not that much more than a normal leader. I thought the mark=up would be higher with the Unicron figures (tiny as they are).

    I wish there was a tad more life to the torso and legs other than all that gray, but I cannot complain about the sculpt much. Maybe the forearms could have been a wee bit bigger but I'm being picky here. THAT HEAD is pure, 100% Optimus Prime. They NAILED it. I cannot wait for Scourge. Thank God I sold that craptastic Titans Return figure.

    That’s just Hasbro covering themselves if things get backed up in shipping.
    Lots of stuff dated for November and December have already been shipped.

    I don't even know if I'm picking up Bulkhead anymore, I was mostly looking forward to putting him and Arcee together as new takes on the characters to my Siege and ER shelf...

    Could've at least put the shirt up for order honestly

    Bulkhead says May so the site is probably just wrong again. Remember when the page for HasLab Victory Saber said it was 5.5 inches tall?

    My guess is that it's a molded in missile rack like on his package art.

    Not sure if it’s been discussed yet (there’s another 10 pages for me to go through!) but the next Target World’s Collide 4 pack was leaked (reliably) as having G1 Goldbug, G1 Barrage (assumed to be a heavy retool of Kickback, like Fangry was of the Monsterbots), BW toy head Scorponok & a white Waspinator.

    Personally I thought Venom was the Insecticon leader :lol
