Ugh... Flanker is a UAV, not a bomber! :BANG_HEAD:

Looks great. Had initially thought of passing him up, but after reading the comic that came with Hoist, then watching this, I'm much more inclined to pick him up.

He's also got Cosmos as well, so I'll be waiting expectantly for that review.

Really? Which one? Except for the twin tail fins I was thinking it more closely resembled the J35 Draken.

Can anyone tell me how these Legends figures compare to Classics Bumblebee or RTS Windcharger, please?

Following up on this morning's review of Generations Swerve and his partner Flanker, YouTube reviewer Pax Cybertron uploaded the pair's wavemates, Cosmos and Payload!



Cosmos and Payload (who is an homage to the Autobot Micromaster Combiner Blast Master) are due out during the first quarter of 2014.

Apparently the Asian markets are a bigger market than North America. I was tempted to pay the $50 price tag with shipping to get these.

Since Hasbro is starting to upsize legends toys for really dumb kids, why don't they upsize this ? I would love this Cosmos in a small Deluxe size to replace my Igear version. But I cant take the happy meal toy size seriously other than to pose next to Metroplex.

I watched the video too and I didn't even think of that way until you pointed it out. That's almost like how Roller attaches to the rear of Optimus Prime. I like these little Easter eggs but I do wish they would mention them in the instructions.

Swerve looks like a fun toy. I really like the IDW comic features. I agree with the reviewer that his legs a bit lanky. The 3rd party figure of Swerve is going to be a close contender. The target masters for Cosmos and Swerve is a huge plus!
