    Meh, they probably don't care, that'd be the sane response.

    I think the worst thing here is the end of the legends comics...im going to miss the insanity of mech suit brawn and cyclonus having a galvatron belly.

    I was very much looking forward to a rodimus prime head yelling at people from out of hot rod's ass

    I believe that these images are actually placeholders as the site has the official line that the product specifications may vary.

    Here's the google translated text.
    "
    For figures / hobby products, the release date may be postponed due to manufacturer's circumstances. When the release date is postponed, we will let you know the new release date by e-mail. In addition, due to postponement of the release date the cancellation deadline will be changed. Please confirm the latest cancellation deadline from the above. In addition, the specifications of the product may be changed due to manufacturer's circumstances. Please note.
    "

    So anyone who is looking forward to changes, I'm pretty sure we'll be seeing them at some point. After all, Fortress Maximus and Defensor had the Hasbro pictures as placeholders for a while.

    We now have about five months to kick up a fuss about these guys. I mean, it seemed to have worked for Legends Kup.

    So, I wanted a G1 chest Rodimus, and a better painted Optimus. Also, painted wheels and NO STICKERS.

    Honestly aside from the Legends line not doing well from what I've heard are we sure Legends is truly ending? Cause for all we know this may be just another subline like what Unite Warriors is.

    Completely removing the Legends line would be a bad move. I can see them releasing less Legends stuff tho. Think Platinum line for takara here, with the Main line being the same as the hasbro releases (as much as id hate that)

    Still a bit worried about the "premium pricepoint" releases aka Masterpiece and Legends line tho, not gonna lie

    No, no one knows absolutely anything at this point except that Takara is releasing it's own version of PotP line. No one knows anything at all about what this means for the Legends line.

    Although I would speculate that the Legends branding is probably ending, after like three years of toys Takara wants to shake things up with a rebranding so Legends is getting a make-over with PotP.

    Were people this worried when Takara changed the line from their own Generations line to Legends, too?

    Amazon most likely is using placeholder images, like they tend to do. People should probably wait for officially released images before hitting the panic button.

    These honestly look exactly the same as the Hasbro versions. Maybe the colors are a bit more saturated on some of them, but that's it. This is going to be Trypticon all over again.

    I feel it is the opposite, since there have been second runs of many of the Legends figures.

    This might just be a new titled series from Takara. They don't have to keep it under Legends. Hasbro created a new series name, Takara can do the same if they choose.

    Wouldn't it be funny if they're also going to have Legends... but will double dip us with standard Hasbro releases first, then later on Legends versions? :lol  Hell maybe there's a market there for the U.S. style versions of the toys in addition to the LG versions?

    These just look like Hasbro figures shot in the way Takara figures are. Or did Takara give up on making animation accurate figures?

    Regardless of whether you feel their reasons are genuine or not, I don't think it's much of a stretch that people are offended by pseudo-kiddie porn accompanying a toy.

    Reading the posts here, of people trying to invent reasons to blame Hasbro, SMDH. I would prefer the choice, myself, but the amount of TT elitism that are ready for their conspiracy theory tinfoil hats is downright staggering.

    The original product photos had a greyish color scheme, but they changed it to be more green after fans complained.
