Seems that Rhinox is apparently a stark Geewunner and decides to turn into Tankor and use the Key to Vector Sigma to turn everything modern into 1980's stuff, which surprises/saddens the others and ticks off Rattle/Rattrap after his copy of the 1986 movie is turned into a VHS tape.

Also visible are the inflatable Unicron store display and Ai getting turned into her bathing figure with Fire Convoy peering while she has the mini Gelshark.

That's freaking adorable!

Sabrblade, can you give us a quick run down of some of the other Legends mini-manga so far?

I definitely prefer this version over the Hasbro one, but I already have the Hasbro one, ah well. :lol:


No worries, thanks, can you comment on the Hasbro versions upper thighs (where they meet the pelvis) do they have a bit of a squeeky sound when you move them?


I haven't handled him in awhile, but I don't remember them squeaking. I'll try to remember to check when I get home from work tonight.


OK thanks.


Sorry it took so long to get back, I hadn't been on here since Wednesday. There's no squeaking on my Hasbro one's hips at all.

Yeah, but considering how the mold's been released seven times (eight if you count the Hasbro Chromia) before this one, waist rotation would have really completed the figure's agile look.

Compared to previous pics of the Takara version, it looks like they fixed her eyes in this image as she no longer has the "four eyes" look and instead has been given more eye-shadow to make for a cleaner-looking face.

Well, it is much closer to the comic artwork.

I'll have to decide if I care enough about the figure to have it twice.
For Sale:
Classics Magnus/Skywarp 2 pack MIB
Classics Devastator MIP
HA Sideswipe K-Mart exclusive color Loose

Currently looking for:
ROTF Target exclusive Sideswipe from the 2-pack
TFCC Punch/Counterpunch
Alternity Primes, silver & white versions
(opened is OK, to be used for customs)

PM If interested

That's an exaggeration. She's got some more red. It's just not a good enough figure to deal with those import fees. Sorry. It's ok and cool but chronic is more worth it.
