    Hi, I've recently begun collecting Transformers Legends, and does anyone find it weird that they have yet to announce a legends version of any wave 3 and 4 figures? I hope there are also a few Japanese exclusive figures that we don't know about as well.

    It's frustrating for sure. I'm not usually that hung up on having to have TT versions of things I already own but even I can't wait to see what TT can do with Hot Rod and if we would get a Toy-Head for Triggerhappy.

    Likewise interested to see what they can do with Kup.

    Considering we're about to enter a Movie cycle I don't know why TT have such a long gap in releases till Godbomber, you would think they would use some of the early part of this year to get through Waves 3/4 and have a shelf presence before the avalanche of Bee later on.

    Yeah, i would hope we at least get a picture of Hot Rod, Sixshot and Triggerhappy before the end of Februari.
    They also have been very silent about a UW Leokaiser.

    I'd hate to think there was no chance of getting that leader Sixshot repainted as leader Greatshot for Legends.

    All the best

    Hate to say it but it wouldn't be the first time TT abandoned a corresponding sub-brand in Transformers as they gear up for the next thing (Superlink and Thrilling 30 come to mind). Good news is that they usually go back and release some of those molds eventually, like Skids. Sometimes, though, they skip the character entirely and release the mold as someone else (Scoop/Roadbuster). So yeah, it's hard to say what their plans are right now.

    Yes, especially if you consider they never did Black Shadow it is quite the scary thought indeed.

    What I really want to know is what if anything they do with Gnaw and if they do him who accompanies him if anyone does at all.

    Well they eventually DID make him, but it was in the TAV line.

    seems like Legends might be going on a hiatus for the 10 Anniversarys movie line??? ~ after consistently releasing 3-5 figures a month under legends, we've got Astrotrain for January and LioConvoy for February then a gap March/April and G.Bomber in May: hard to believe they'd get THAT far behind Hasbro, by the time they get started on Hasbro's wave 3, wave 5 should be about to hit.
