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

Of course Bumblebee has the highest quantity...

Yeah but only by 1. This is one of the most even case layouts I've seen in a long time

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.

ill be getting all of them except for bumblebee, he just looks like crap. But Sinnertwin is the best out of the group, hope they bring back more of the terrorcons.

I'm going to cut the wings off that legion class smokescreen and glue them to the back of the Takara Knockout repaint.

Smokescreen x3?

Hehe, my favorite Autobots is slowly replacing Bumblebee as the kid-appeal character. :twisted:

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

He doesn't have a larger toy.

Might get Twinstrike if I ultimately decide on expanding my dino shelf into a dino&dragon shelf. Hmm.

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.

I can't wait to see Hun-gurr!

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

Any specific reason why Airachnid has Bumblebee's weapon?

They've always had the same weapon. Hasbro's just lazy.

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

Sinnertwin needs a deluxe class so bad. Thats such a sick combination of colours and porpotions.

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