    There was another private Zoom based event for fan sites and community leaders today, all related to Legacy. We were able to attend. Check the link for our notes, all of which are short and PARAPHRASED. So if another outlet has some differing info, ask and I'll clarify things as needed.

    Feel free to discuss any info from other outlets as it pops up as well.

    Awesome! Love seeing these. Hopefully the ROTB designs don’t change and end up with inaccurate ROTB figures next year despite 2023 being the originally intended year for those figures.

    Yeah, figured it’s a rock and a hard place for the no window boxes. Closed boxes probably the best option to prevent removal of heads and theft. Glad they see there’s hefty demand for non-G1 stuff, especially beasts.

    The lack of Sunstorm inquiry disturbs me.

    Stoked to hear the non-G1 TFs are doing down as well as the G1 stuff, bodes well for them getting into even more niche corners of the brand!

    An alternative to open vs. windowless packaging I saw suggested elsewhere was a cardboard grill or "bars" in place of the window, so you can still see the toy but the few dipshits that vandalise toys wouldn't have easy access to them.

    You mean the people whinging about "muh prime look" are the minority?

    I was there at the start of G1 and am an unabashed fan of G1, BW, BM, and UT. I am very glad that other figures are being mixed in and doing well. That said they did say they are doing better than "some" G1 figures but did not clarify. I am sure Bulkhead will sell better than the 4th repack of Wheeljack, but I suspect figures like Optimus still dominate.

    So Studio Series will have Rise Of The Beasts stuff in 2023 after all. It's ok. As long as Que, Hatchet and Breakaway make it through, I'm fine

    Glad the yellowing was addressed and that it really wasn't their fault. My Maverick figure is almost completely tan now, my Earthrise Megatron's joints turned a weird beige snd my Cyberverse Arcee is now creamcicle colored, so hopefully they find the issue and a solution.

    And a Crankcase. Hasbro gods, give us another Crankcase. Also, maybe a three pack with the Dreads.

    So its sad to see Drill Bit get priced out for Metroplex but it does give me some hope that Armada Starscream will come with swindle. Mini-cons were the main gimmick of Armada after all.

    Good! This is good, please keep that mindset. Playability and expanding overall fun should always be so important for main line Transformers.
