    Dunno if these are new, but if there are people looking for these, Toy Kingdom Festival Mall in Alabang, Manila has them in stock. Pic c/o Franz Echeverria in FB. 42172D9D-0D62-4598-992F-22BED4DAAD7D.jpeg

    These are the new "evergreen" designs from Hasbro. I think a trademark used for them is "Authentics".

    Also, it might be helpful for this thread's title to specify "Legends Class", not as in the TakaraTomy "Legends" line.

    Yeah, I'm fairly certain these are new. Don't think anyone's reported any sightings before now.

    How big are these anyway? Legion size or Legends?

    Legion ie pre DOTM Legend size. You can see some RiD Legion cardbacks to the left of the picture and they're the same size.

    These are new figures, not releases.

    Sometimes I wonder how do people still don't know this stuff by now.

    Spotted just today at Robinson's Place Ermita in the Philippines, James Deocampo on the Cybertron Philippines FB group shared a shot of the new Transformers Authentics range on a toy store shelf.

    [​IMG]

    Optimus, Megatron, and Starscream are each going for 299.75 PHP, or approximately 6 USD. For reference, our Legion toys go for 400 PHP, while Legends class toys cost 600 PHP. Despite their lower price, the Authentics stand taller than the Legions, seemingly closer to Legends size.

    Wait these things only cost Php300? Huh, that's not a bad deal... might pick up a figure or two.

    Now this one.

    To the mod who merged the threads: could you please retitle the thread to better reflect the information within it?

    At this size they're OK deal.

    Any bigger and closer to the Deluxe size and their simplified engineering would look terrible.

    Still pretty scarce on paint apps but that's nothing what can't be fixed with a set of sharpies.
