    Mother of GOD.

    Someone please tell me that Windblade is just an aborted prototype or something. That is terrible even by Legion standards.

    And no new Warriors at all? Again?

    Disappointment totale.

    They made a worse Windblade than the original.

    Hasbro deserves a prize for that.

    I love Cyberverse and I love the Legion scale.
    These look HORRIBLE, and I'll be passing on them all. This is a true first for me.
    NuRiD continues to prove to me my decision to avoid it was a good one.

    NuRiD- yes. Not surprising.
    I'm just glad the Legends continue to stay awesome.

    What happened to Windblade? She look like crap. Almost deluxe Airachnid levels of crap.

    I hope Windblade's mistransformed because she looks really off here. The rest are fine. Thunderhoof looks good and I wasn't too surprised at the other Leigon repaints.

    The lack of more Warrior toys reveals's starting to make me concerned for the line's future as well as the show.

    Thunderhoof looks pretty good.

    I hope Drift's car hood can fold down or rotate behind onto the back of the robot mode.

    Wingblade is an interesting looking figure, reminds me of the experiments they did with transformations in the Classics 3-pack Mini-cons. Have the 3rd party Maiden so this legion class is just a bonus figure.

    Love the Strongarm repaint, that mold is fantastic.

    Magnus, eh Prime repaint that's no big deal to me.

    I kinda like the legion Drift and Thunderhoof, but that Windblade.

    Also, weren´t there listing for Warrior Thunderhoof and Megatronus? Where are they?

    Wow...woooooooow. Granted maybe more will be shown later and the warrior class toys are being put into the cases now but...that's a pretty weak offering.

    And Windblade looks terrible. What happened to the engineering that made legion Fixit such a fun and expressive toy? If Fixit is the RID Legion class's high then Windblade is definitely the low right now.

    Wow that Windblade makes Doritoscream look good. That is just one oddly proportioned ugly figure.

    Thunderhoof looks pretty good. Not Fixit good, but I don't think any Legion will be that good again. Drift looks pretty standard.


    Windblade, though. Man, I was so looking forward to that Windblade to display on Superion's shoulder. What a shame.
