Well frankly I’m not impressed I was hoping for a entirely new figure I was looking forward to a scout bumblebee that turned in to a modern beetle

The only possible good thing about this is we'll probably see it on clearance because nobody wants it.

They should cancel this altogether.

I was hopping for them to take a similar approach to Wheel_Jacks custom Classics Bumblebee:

Guess it's not gonna happen.

I just don't get it, why would they.... Or anyone bother with a 3rd party retool of a cheap, limited articulation, jokey figure like a legends.... Well I guess it'll be cheap to make.. Do I sense a ripoff price coming? Because of 'exclusivity'?

The only legends figure I've ever liked is legends Ravage. Everything else blows.

Man, this just makes Igear look even more unoriginal, as they continually rip off existing moulds.

I hate that legends mould too, I had the Takara Cliffjumper among many of my legends figures. It was the only one I sold because I just don't like the mould.

Actually, the Legends Scorponok is pretty good. It's got better proportions in robot mode than the Deluxe figure.
Not caring about scale since 1984. Just like Hasbro.

Considering his contributions to the creation of Volkswagen in the first place... but SHHHH don't mention that, if it turns into a robot and shoots other robots, that's REALLY bad!
