I was looking forward to Blitzwing, but that head is hideous. If I get him, he'll be displayed in plane mode most likely. I couldn't care less for Springer, but I gotta admit, the toy looks pretty good. Not gonna get it, though.

*NERDGASM!* Holy crap those Voyagers look fantastic! The front box art on Springer's box, damn does he look badass. Jumping on both of these.

Loving the Legion-class accessories, too. Roller looks awesome, might have to buy multiples of that set to equip my other Legends Optimus figs w/ their own Roller.

I've been hoping for a break in awesome TFs so I can save some money for the new Metroplex, but Hasbro, my tantalizing and cruel mistress, offers no quarter. :BOWDOWN:

Oh boy, another Springer, that's only 5 "Classics" Springers now.

Pretty stoked for the little guys. Hot Shot repaint out of that Bumblebee plz.

Yeah the Blitzwing head looks awkward, but that's probably 'cos it has a face-changing gimmick if I remember correctly?
Other than that, though, it looks to be the best triple changing Voyager since I can remember. For once all 3 modes look good! :D

I'm liking everything here! The triple changers both look great, and it looks like Legends/Legion figures are finally getting all the much needed articulation points with knees and elbows (with much better execution than Prime CJ too). Hopefully they keep it up with these well-made Legends and continue to expand the Generations line of them.

Do we know yet what other faces Blitzwing has? I think I saw one that was TFA's "Icy" face, could have been his G1 face though, can't remember now. Anyone know?

We've only seen G1, and Animated Icy. If there is a third, the "Random" Face is *heads spins* ... the bee's knees. Do bees even have knees?

*head spins again* Hmpf, I see the third is indeed random *head spins yet again* I was Ninja'ed?! Why I oughta... *heads spins a final time* ... put up a shrine to all ninjas everywhere, maybe even Samurai as well, as they're the bee's knees as well. 8-}

Lots of pics of the Triplechangers:

Notably Blitzwing's G1/Hothead face can be moved to a better looking position:

But the back half of his tank mode sucks:


Regardless, he is so bought!

Okay, now I'm getting Blitzwing JUST so I can display him in Random Mode.

Blitzwing and Springer were already on my list, but now I really want them!

I'll get Bumblebee, but I'm still uber-disappointed about Optimus being Legends scaled.

im still not sold on blitzwing, i might get one to keep in the box but thats about it. Springer is a must have & the others will be based off price.

That pic of Blitzwing with his face angled better, that really works for me. He looks pretty much spot on for the character and toy homages. I couldn't care less about the face changing gimmick though. Springer however, wow. His alt modes are all pretty off, I'm okay with that. I like it actually. What I don't like is that his colors are wildly wrong. They're very "in your face" which isn't something his deco has ever been. He's almost always been lighter shades of yellow and green. I'm hoping Takara does something nicer. Otherwise I'll be passing. I do think the mold looks like a winner. I am actually hoping to slot him into the collection where Defender currently resides. Fingers crossed!

So now that we're starting to get these images, will they be released during the summer, or are they still scheduled for release around early/late fall?
