saw these at target the other day but had no interest, $10 is a ripoff especially since they dont have minicons anymore. Plus the combiner war deluxes they had were $11.99, stocked up on those & went on my way. If they reduced the price down to 7 or 8 id be all over them but as it is easy pass. On another note TRU has generations deluxes for $12.99

Really? But didnt the ones that came with the target masters cost the same amount?

Yeah, they did. And before that were the bigger, more articulated PCCs and HA Basics and their partners at that price.

.... and every one of those did terrible in my stores. So either these things will shelfwarm like crazy, or everybody will happily pay more for less. I'm not sure which is better.



Then again I'll happily pay $10 for Bombshell (and hopefully Kickback), so...

It's true. I've found all the wave 1 legends at TRU, and at the local Target stores as of Jan. 1, 2015. So I was able to start the year with some good luck after all. I found the wave 1 warrior figures from RiD in TRU as well, though so far I haven't felt the desire to buy any - I'm lukewarm to that whole line as of yet and can live without them.

But I had to pick up Bombshell and Powerglide - somehow the legends new Powerglide seems better than the ultra class figure from the Universe line :)

No sign of the Deluxe combiner wars figures yet...

That Powerglide is a great little figure, so glad I didnt buy the Universe, Transbots or Make toys one.

Picked up Firefly this afternoon, leaving me done with Wave 1, really liking this wave, the best thing Hasbro has done in a long time. Bing on Wave 2 and (hopefully) Devestator.

Don't know if it's because I'm on a mobile but Motormaster looks very light. Promo pics showed dark grey/black with a purple face.

I like the way Dead End and Beeakdown's chests conceal th pegs better and Offroad does look cool, despite not being Wildrider.

Megs looks decent, but I really wanted him in Voyager class to stand toe to toe with my Classics Prime.

It's a shame they didn't put a port or something so that you could attach Armada Megatron's cannon to his side and make him more accurate.

Wow I dont think there is any saving menasor. Perfect Effect managed to save Superion but I dont expect them to pull rabbits out of their ass with menasor. That megatron looks horrible. The armada version looks better but the scale throws me off a bit. I might pick him up on clearance.

Drag Strip is my favorite, personally. It's all in that vicious head sculpt. =P~

Agree with you on Armada Megatron - but he's primed for a 3rd party to swoop in and give him a killer add-on kit with swing around cannon, and maybe even a nice dagger per the original toy. That's my hope, anyway...

Yeah Menasors pretty awful, the proportions are all over the place! Cannot understand how they can get Superion so right and Menasor so wrong. Still money saved for Devy. Not feeling Megs at all, too big for a start. Really is a mixed bag this line.

Didn't realize until now that that Armada Megatron has solid orange horns. Yuk.

I get the feeling that I might have liked that figure more if it had just been a straight redeco instead of a simple remold; a version of G1 Megatron colored as a homage to Armada Megatron, instead of actually trying to be Armada Megatron.

Being honest, I'm not really excited about the leader Megatron. I mean, it looks awesome, but if it were Voyager size I would like it better. As a Leader Class figure I don't like it as much. However, the Leader Class Armada Megatron interests me, and I will probably grab that over the G1 Tank Megatron.

I don't like the way those Megatrons look at all. They looked really good in older images, but what doesn't look better in prelim/mocked photos?

Menasor looks okay to me, but I'd need better pics to really judge.

The individual Stunticons look great (especially Dead End) but Menasor combined looks odd.

What I'd like to see someone like Perfect Effect do is an add-on kit that works as a trailer for Motormaster, becomes a "repair bay" when he's in robot mode (ala the vintage toy) and splits apart into add-ons for the combined mode that bulks him up and improves his proportions (and gives him better hands and feet).

The G1 Megs works, but the Armada version...eh. I'd rather a 3P company came out and gave us a kit to give the original toy better leg articulation.All you'd need to do is replace his hips and thighs. I suppose they could make him replacement feet but they'd need to find a way to let the buyer remove the pins.
