Did we know this was happening?

I was in my local Toys R Us and found these three with Legion Breakdown, which is the only one I bought. Did we know they were releasing DOTM legion toys in the TFP line? I don't remember hearing anything about it.

I can't see the pic, but am guessing it's Legion Soundwave, etc. And yes, we did know about it.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Ramjet, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party Motobot Arcee, iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn

Motto: "It doesn't matter if the glass is half full or half empty, only that you work to make it full."
Weapon: Particle Beam Cannon
Also, look at the packaging - it's NOT the Prime line. It's the Cyberverse line. The Cyberverse figs are considered separate from Prime, and will include whatever Cyberverse figs they so decide. :)

And yet they feature bots from whatever faction they belong from prime. I was given the impression they were from Prime, seeing as that's what most of them are based from. So yeh.. Not saying you're wrong, just pointing out they claim it's not prime but place prime characters on the box? I is confuseded. :???:

Weapon: Rocket Launcher
The header does NOT INCLUDE "Prime"

The bios and pictures on the bio card clearly how that these are the movie verse characters.

This was known for quite a while, actually. In fact there was quite an uproar about the long-awaited Mirage/Dino toy being just a recolor.

I still wish they released a few of the Asia-only DotM Deluxes this was, too...

Wow, you are right, I looked again at the card I got Breakdown and it clearly says Prime on it. those 3 don't. Kind of an odd move on Hasbro's front. I'm guessing they are expecting people to pick them up thinking they are characters from Prime.

BTW, just saying, I love Cyberverse and Breakdown has an amazing transformation for such a small toy.

We've known these figures were coming for almost as long as the Prime line's been out. Make of that what you will.

Breakdown clearly should have been a Commander figure, like Bulkhead, instead of a Legion figure. Most of the Cyberverse figures are to scale with each other, but Breakdown is way too small.
