I know. I didn't think I would like them as much...but...I love the little weapon masters. They are so great.
We don't know if the new ones will even get Whatevermaster partners, even the repaints from the series year, as none were announced at all.
I sure they will. Especially considering they would have to change the price point, packaging, and the fact that all of them, save Bombshock and Powerglide, are repaints of prior molds with holes for the minicons. Not that they couldn't retool the holes, but it just seems unlikely.
Funny you should say "new packaging": Cliffjumper and Nemesis will still be part of the 2014 line, while the rest (Thundercracker, Windcharger, Bombshell and Powerglide) are slated for 2015 which will feature new packaging and possibly a new price point for Legends to go along with it.
Yes, but Thundercracker and Windcharger are based on molds that were created for the current configuration. But, you could be right. Personally I can take or leave the minicons, but it would be a shame to not keep going with what has worked. From what I can tell these legends figures are selling pretty well. After the initial onslaught of nine months worth of Optimus, BB, Megatron, and Starscream, of course.
Factoring in what you said about the packaging changing, you might be right. The only thing that will piss me off is if they do away with the minicon and then lower the price to 8.99 or something. The legends without minicons are worth 6.99 tops.
You know what the sad thing is? I just realized that five years ago this summer I bought my first TF from childhood. It was a Universe Ratchet and I paid 8.99 for it. If they are 8.99 a pop for these legends, look how far we have fallen.....
