    If hastak brings back legends, wouldn’t they be affected by the price increase and cost like 15ish dollars?

    If not, I think legends should sell alongside micromasters in the same price point. Then you can bring back legend sized figures while also finishing out the micromasters

    I think that Legends might be a bit bigger - in a unified scale line for G1, there is more characters slightly larger than Legends class than not(Huffer, Brawn, etc), and I'm not sure about everyone else, but I'd rather the Legends selection not be full of hollow figures. Maybe they'd even give us the return of the Basic/Scout class for them.

    Alongside Micromasters though? Sign me up! =D

    basic/scout isnt too terribly taller than legends, though it does allow for more mass

    would definitely be nice to get it back, but i have a complete set of legends sized minibots, not sure id trade up for scout class

    I figure Legends would end up being $11.99. I doubt they'd sell at $15.

    Voyagers and Leaders went up $5 with Siege but Deluxes only went up $2. It's just that retailers are actually getting away with full MSRP because they're selling out.

    My guess is that they will be about $12.99 but incorporate some kind of extra clip-on armor that will add to either the robot or alt-mod aesthetics.

    If they're going that route, they might go all the way and package Legends characters as deluxes with a load of accessories.

    Maybe....I'm sure it would make a lot of people happy if for $20 they had the Legend figure and 2 pieces of armor plus like 3-6 blast effects. People love those blast effects!

    That sounds pretty groovy to me. My wish is for the Generations G1 line to feature as many accessories as GI Joes once did. Siege has made great strides in this, but isn't pefect(each Cybertronian Datsun only has 2 accessories if you count shoulder cannons as one, same with Cybertronian Lambos)

    But a lot of people wouldn't be too happy to have to pay extra for a bunch of stuff they never asked for.
    I hope siege Shockwave is the last time Hasbro attempts such a swindle.

    If we bring back legends can we just call them scouts again? Because legends created the whole legend legion class confusion
    I still think selling micromasters and legends in the same pricepoint is the best option

    I think WFC Legends/Scouts would be about £11-13 if they where to include a Micromaster or some effects. I for one would welcome there return, have bought a Generations Legends I didn't think was great yet.

    I always felt Legends was also confusing as to me something called LEGEND class conjures images of someone big and well, legendary, not the smallest Transformer size class.

    Skywarp comes with, I believe, 3 different Targetmaster repaints.

    Yep. That's the kind of thing I'm talking about. Doesn't even make any sense when he can only hold two of them.
    And if they are Fracas and Nightstick that would be even worse.

    If it is nightstick does this prove that skywarp was cyclonus all along?

    It’s not that bad compared to well, if you wanted the clones without any of the others in the two TR boxsets. The thing I’m annoyed about is this may be the second time that hastak start a group of characters and decide to shove the last couple of guys in an exclusive set

    to be fair, it did start out as "Legends of Cybertron" and encompassed most of the main cast.
