    I still don't know why TE went this route.
    Is it because Takara is releasing these soon and they want to get in the way of Takara and grab sales first?

    I am never going to have the extra cash or space to start a secondary BW MP collection, but some legends scale BW I can support. TE, TW and IF are targeting an untapped market.

    There is for me. I was going to get this figure because it was the only kinda screen accurate BA around, but now that Takara is coming out with the masterpiece, I don't think I'll buy this one anymore.

    After such a good OP, i would continiue MP figures.
    I guess legends are cheaper to make.

    Cheaper to make and soon to be just as popular, if not more. Especially in Asian markets where people have a living space of 400 square feet or less to work with.

    Technically legends class Beast Wars figures are as close as you can probably get to accurate scale next to actual MP Bots. Just saying!

    They went legends for their bw stuff but I’d assume they’ll continue to put out no offerings as well

    Maybe that’s why Transform Element is doing them. They’re keeping their whole line MP scale.

    Yeah, like DX9, TW, UT and Magic Square I would guess they will continue to serve both markets.

    If I remember correctly even NewAge is working in two scales, they had a movie Soundwave that wasn't legends.

    Iron Factory is the only one I can think that is exclusively legends.

    Shipping would be amazing, but I am curious how they will price these guys.
    It is a smaller cast so if they end up on the Magic Square/Iron Factory end of the scale versus Mech Fans it isn't the end of world.

    As much I want her, I'm much more eager for the obvious and hopefully inevitable Tarantulas repaint.
