    Loving that Drift. Bisk looks to short just like Groundbuster and Steeljaw.

    Yeah, Drift does look good. It's one of the better molds from the line, so it's on my radar.
    The others... not so much.

    Warrior Bisk is gonna be awesome. Had we not been shown that I'd be all over Legion Bisk.

    I guess the Legion class is the new Lego-brick-class toy, as all the variety is going to the cheapest/smallest toys in the line. It's strange because the legion quality has dipped a bit (imo), but they keep making more... I guess they must be either selling really well, or are just cheap enough to keep pumping more out. :confused: 

    Actually, since Hasbro doesn't really sell direct, it could just be that lots of retailers are requesting the smaller-priced toys, in an effort to try and turn a profit when so many parents are tightening their belts and so many boys are busy playing on their iPads.
    Did we really need another Drift, though? This "Blizzard" line perplexes me. Random repaint or does it make some sort of appearance in S2???

    Dipped more than a little bit. These new ones are NOTHING compared to the movie and Prime Cyberverse lines.
    Honestly, the only good one from this line has been Fixzit, and even then I consider it too stylized to fit in with my other Cyberverse figures. After that one, Sideswipe is pretty good, Bumblebee, Drift and Strongarm are decent, but the rest are weak and dull.

    Don't know, don't care. I don't like the series, so the repaints are little more than custom fodder to me.
    I'll probably make Blizzard Drift into my Cyberverse Blurr.

    Dipped more than a little bit is not true, the legions in this line are as good as ever. Thunderhoof and Clampdown in particular are great and Groundbuster looks fantastic. No idea how you can praise Drift, who is SUPER standard and leaves those out, the worst one is Windblade but that is only because her sculpt sucks, the actual transformation is fun and not any level below past legion planes. "Stylized" is not a real complaint of quality.

    And Zap, blizzard repaints are happening because they were in two episodes of season 2 where the bots take camo paintjobs during an arctic mission.

    Groundbuster feels like a lost Constructicon, which I like quite a bit, but Bisk is a terrible design top to bottom. However, yes I will totally own both his Legends as well as Warrior scale figures. :dj

    It's personal opinion. I do not like these new ones nearly as much as what Prime gave us. I've been a fan of the size class since the first round of Universe and A/E/C figures were released many ages ago, and these just don't work for me.
    Clampdown is fiddly and weak (doesn't stand without using the arms), and Thunderoof's arms are weirdly designed. The figure is generally solid, but I just don't enjoy it nearly as much as almost every Prime and movie line release.
    Yes, Drift is standard, but he has knees and a solid build. Standard also does not equate to lack of quality.
    Also, Windblade is terrible (again, personal opinion). I feel there is nothing about it that isn't bad. The alt mode is passable, but the bot mode is one of the worst I've ever had the displeasure to own. The ONLY reason I have it was because I wanted to give it a chance before making a final verdict.

    I never said the stylized look doesn't mean it isn't a quality build. I just don't think it fits in with the rest of my Cyberverse figures. It's more in line with the deluxes. Also, the figure has some of the bet articulation of any Legion release ever. It's so good I bought multiples just to utilize the parts.
