Transformers Prime "Beast Hunters" Legion Class Wave 1 Image

Motto: "I ain't got time to bleed!"
Weapon: Gattling Gun
Thanks to BBCW Distributors we have a new image of the Transformers Prime "Beast Hunters" Legion Assortment Wave 1. This wave features Smokscreen, Airachnid, Bumblbee, and Twinstike (who's looking awfully Sinnertwin-ish). Check out the image mirrored below.

Coming from Hasbro.

It's The Transformers Prime Beast Hunters - Legion Assortment - 0000.

Roll out with the heroic Autobots as they battle and work to defend Earth from destruction now that a new faction have joined the Decepticons to take them down… They are called the Predacons and they are made up of menacing beasts that convert in ways mankind has never seen before!

This Assortment is set to include:

- 3x Smokescreen.
- 2x Twinstrike.
- 2x Airachnid.
- 4x Bumblebee.

Sold as cases. Packed 12 per case.

Erm, wasn't "Twinstrike" actually going to be called Sinnertwin last time someone checked, or am I just remembering that that's who the larger toy looked like?

And Airachnid's chopper blades look depressingly accurate to her deluxe toy, while the crescent-bow makes her look like she's doing a full-on Blackarachnia impression...say, does anyone else think too many characters using the same crossbow makes it seem like Beast Hunters somehow marks the return of the Evil Horde?

Looking at the case breakdown I think Hasbro realizes the demand for Smokescreen. Airacnid looks good but I do find it funny it and Bumblebee use the same weapon

I totally got the same Sinnertwin vibe off of that figure. Would have been a much better name imo and a nice homage.

As for your comment about the "Evil Horde"...once I stopped laughing I had to kind of cringe a bit. The whole thought in general isn't helping me warm up to this new line any quicker. But yes, it totally brings to mind the Horde.

No. He's always been "Twinstrike." He's a Sinnertwin homage.

or am I just remembering that that's who the larger toy looked like?


He doesn't have a larger toy.

Sinntertwin looks spectacular! Can't wait to pick him and Airachnid up. SS is looking pretty derpy with those weird shoulders, but maybe it's just mistransformed? If it's not, I'll hold off 'till I see him at 5below or something.

Must. Have. SINNERTWIN!

I know he's called "Twinstrike" on the package, but "Sinnertwin" is one of the best TF names ever and we all know that's who he's supposed to be

Not laziness, it's a cost issue. To be honest it does look close to those hand blades the deluxe one has.

If they're opened up a little. Not an exact match but close enough that the argument can be made.

Airachnid and Smokescreen - yes, Bumblebee and Sinnertwin - no. I really enjoy the direction Hasbro went with the Legion and Commander toys. I find it very funny that the legion class Airachnid looks better than the deluxe.
