Transformers Legends New Style Packaging found at Family Dollar! Starscream , Optimus Prime , and Bumblebee have been found. Card artwork is similar to the Age Of Extinction Packaging yet feature Reveal The Shield on the back of the card yet no rub sign on the figure itself. These were found by Savage Dragon of the TFW2005 boards in FL. UPDATE! I have added a picture from the Family Dollar Ad. Thank you Keith Sigle from Facebook! Optimus Prime is pictured in the ad.

Repacked as in not redecoed. And FYI he was never part of RtS (but Gold Bumblebee was).

That particular version was released in the DotM and the 2010 lines (with a minor change), while Prime, Megatron and Starscream were originally RtS, then re-released in the 2010 line, sporting the GDO retools.
The resident Rewind... well, half of one :lol:

- Jelze Bunnycat =:3

Looking for:
- TR Furos (Hardhead's head) and Crashbash (lost him :()
- PotP Punch head
- TR Galvatron right arm (the gun one)
- CW Stunticon limbs (Drag Strip, Dead End, Breakdown, Brake-Neck, Offroad or TFCC Grabuge) + Blackjack
- TR Twinferno & Grotusque
- Greenlight, Lancer and PotP Elita-1 (plus repro Victorion hands and feet?)

I know what series he is in. I own every single one. I was stating what he has been repainted into and the series. Image


Here are some updated pics I found a set today.

New legends packaging found at Family Dollar

Found this on my lunch break. Re-packs of legends Prime, Bee and Starscream. Not a fan of these molds but I absolutely love the cards. I wish they were the generations molds packed without the little guy but this is certainly a more attractive card back than previously seen.

I have been into transformers since 1984.
While I love G1 I also love new innovations and takes on the characters.
I prefer official Hasbro releases of stuff for the most part
I'm not a huge fan of Japanese original Transformers media or designs.
It's easier for me to say which are my LEAST favorite toy lines: Beast Machines, Robots in Disguise.

Interesting. I wonder if these are just repackaged or reissues.

Wish they would finally release those unreleased Scout figures from Reveal the Shield.

I actually saw these on Amazon a few days ago. Also, that Bumblebee is actually a reissue of that legends Bumblebee that came in a Dark of the Moon Toys R Us 4-pack with another Bumblebee and 2 Starscreams.

Just noticed that Starscream has some peg holes on his wings. Possible nullrays?

Same holes as what my Thundercracker has. Null Rays or whatever you want to consider the blasters to be but yes, they mount on either top or bottom of the wing in jet mode.
I'm glad to see these kicking around since I missed out on my chance to get Starscream the first few times around. Likewise the Optimus but his mold didn't really intrigue me all that much when I first saw it but the completist in me is telling me I should get it just to add another piece to my Prime collection. Plus he's G1 style and since I've grown to detest the new movie style, at least in bot mode, I'm starting to snatch up as many G1 looking versions of him as I can get.

Didn't realize these figures were hard to come by. Both of the Big Lots in my area and at least one other store still has the previous release of these guys along with the G2 Megatron tank. For cheaper if I remember correctly as I only picked up the Megatron and that was back in October. I've been to the stores since and they still have them I just don't remember the price other than it being lower than what they're advertising for these AOE carded versions.

Weapon: Saber Blade
Both the Optimus and Starscream molds have the retooled parts they received with their GDO Motorbreath and Thundercracker releases, but sadly do not contain the new weapons that these retoolings were made for. Meaning Optimus doesn't have his sword and Starscream likewise lacks his handheld null rays.

I was just there Friday and contemplated buying these. They are $5 at Big Lots and the ones there have a sword with Optimus and Null rays with Starscream. So, why would anyone buy these if you can get them a buck cheaper and with accessories at a competitor? Assuming you do not already have the RTS ones.

Completists and those who've never seen them before. Surprisingly, some stores and some regions do not carry these, or at least not in full force.
