    Wow, Windblade is shit.

    I need to see better pics of Thunderhoof. Drift looks pretty basic. Like "Legion Bee whose car doors become arms, head comes out of hood, windows become wings, etc" standard. In other words, unremarkable but not necessarily bad.

    Wow... Hasbro continues to disappoint. They should be downright embarrassed by that Windblade. Many a good Legion has been done... she is not one of them. Terrible.

    And what's the deal with no new Warrior's? I get that this line is supposed to appeal to kids, but mine have already lost interest in the line. Largely because there's only one Decepticon out of the many many many on the show. They have no interest in repaints that aren't different characters.

    I know there was a rumor that Thunderhoof, Fracture and Quillfire were supposed to be getting Warrior Class designs soon so I was hoping to see those guys. This has been a very disappointing SDCC from Hasbro.

    I'll stick with Iron Factory Maiden thank you very much. This official Windblade looks horrid.

    The Legions for this line were pretty good until this. I hate how terrible these look. :(

    Oh, that's not a nice Windblade. :(  As for Thunderhoof and Drift... Well, they're not worse than Windblade, but...

    I actually really like the 'toon, but so far have only been buying the Takara exclusive re-deco's. I'm just not feeling the Hasbro toys. Heck, even the Takara Black Convoy was pretty underwhelming. If Takara aren't thrilling me, Hasbro's got no chance!

    Shame as these could have been really good toys. :(

    Whats up with them giving her(wingblade) a pink face too. Thats like adding insult to injury. Last years fanbuilt, this years trash heap. :lol 

    Gah cant get over it.

    Edit: strange that thunderhoof has double antler forks, not sure it needed that. Maybe Drift is salvageable, maybe could be adapted by spinning round the window bonnet kibble. Very flat lacklustre car mode even fir a legion. Maybe...

    If you want a tiny Windblade, get the Iron Factory one. That legends Windblade looks like a dollar store knock off.

    Thank you Hasbro for making it so easy to skip the RID line entirely so I can focus on CHUG

    The sad part is neither look good. Though at least Hasbro isn't charging $23.

    technically its the other way around since you know iron factory didnt create their own character but pirate it from hasbro.

    I got mine for around $26 shipped. But that's not the point, Hasbro, with all their resources, can make decent figures, yet they choose to make that crappy RID Legion Windblade, instead of just downsizing the Generations Deluxe Windblade and simplifying it a bit.

    Ok seriously, what the fuck Hasbro?

    I like the show...and I sure would love to own good representations of its characters... but instead we get this?

    That Windblade CANNOT be real. That can't be the final product. It's not possible. It doesn't even have a fucking face! Or arms! Even 2007 Movie Starscream is a better Legends/Legion figure than that Windblade!

    Stop dragging your feet with RID's toyline, Hasbro. Do you not want my money or something?
