    I was hoping they'd at least be in the Legends size class, not Legion.

    They seem to be in that odd in between scale. If you look at the RID legion packaging they are about the same size, but the legion figures are much smaller then the packaging, but when you look at these guys it's like they fill a decent amount of the card.

    I hope so. My Cyberverse collection needs a good Megatron to oppose my THS Optimus.

    At this size, I’m interested in seeing more of Grimlock.

    Poor Optimus and Bumblebee don\'t look like they get elbows. Megatron and Starscream aren\'t half bad.

    Don't like = waste of plastic, or didn't you get the memo?

    Decepticons look good, but the Autobots don\'t look like much of an improvement from the last budget releases.

    Same here. I really like the designs for Megatron, Starscream and Grimlock.
    Heck, I may even buy multiples if they're nice.

    Wait, wait, wait... LEGENDS SCALE??? :eek:  :eek:  :eek:  Dammit, I'm all in. :lol 
    Unless they're crap plastic (or thin plastic), in which case... yeah, waste of plastic! :p 
    They seem like a fun pick up for kids. Legends toys are pretty simple to transform, and really portable. So they could be fun.

    Did you ever buy that Cyber Battalion Prowl (the one currently sold at Walgreens!)? Cause there's a "stupid" toy (it's basically an upscaled LEGION toy).... but if you pick one up? Wow, it's a fun toy! :thumb  It's weirdly one of my favorite Prowl's EVER. It's just simple and fun; transforms intuitively and has some solid modes! :)

    The downside is that it's pretty BIG... so smaller, Legends scale versions sound good to me. :thumb

    Battalion Optimus, Starscram and Megatron are also really fun figures. I always wanted Grimlock but couldn't find one.
    All in all, cheaper and/or small do not necessarily make figures not fun.

    Yeah, I hope the price is right - multiples of Legends is easy: they take up little space, so it's easy to store them after you're done. Plus you can make all kinds of crazy dioramas with some extras! :D  And the kids can break em without you shedding any man-tears! :lol

    I'm currently in love with CB Jetfire! <3 I guess he's a Starscream re-paint with a different head, but... somehow the mold really works for Jetfire! :thumb

    Wow the arms on Optimus and Bee are truly awful, I mean it\'s bad enough they are stiff armed but OP just has rectangles for arms! They didn\'t even try to make that look good... Grimlock is the only one of these I\'d consider but even then why would I get that when the Voyager potp figure exists?

    And yet somehow this simple little Grimlock looks better than the voyager.
    To me, at least.

    Oooooh no, Hasbro. I am not doing this again. I bought your Cyber Battalion Jetfire and Optimus without realizing they had no knees. I am not buying an Optimus with no elbows!

    That Megatron looks pretty cool though. Probably pick it up depending on the price.
