New Transformers Legacy toys were revealed today. Like what we've had for years now, Amazon has multipacks made up of redecos and retools. One of these, however, is a pretty big deal. Unlike Amazon's usual way of mixing different types of characters forcing people to buy multiple packs to complete sets (like the Kingdom two packs) the two hotly anticipated G1 Bandai insecticons, Chop Shop & Barrage, are in the same pack. It also comes with a redeco of Siege Smashdown.

The other multipack has Prime Breakdown using the Legacy Prime Bulkhead mold and the "previously thought to be cancelled" Windsweeper as a redeco of the Needlenose mold.

Here are the preorder links below from Amazon.com, which is the only place you can currently get these.

I'm underwhelmed by Breakdown. I didn't like the mold as Bulkhead and I don't like it here. Windsweeper looks okay, but I don't need him.

I'm eager to get Chop Shop and Barrage though. The deluxe insecticons have always looked cool, and I intentionally skipped the Legacy Insecticons because I'm fine with my Prime Wars ones, so these will be new molds to me.

Breakdown feels just lazy. Nice to see the Deluxe Insecticons, now how about giving us a revamped Venom too?

And now we're glad we picked up the Prime Breakdown re-issue a few years ago. The colours and headsculpt on the Legacy one are spot-on but that's it.

May pick up the insecticons if we find them cheap.


Did they just forget to paint Windsweeper's targetmasters?

They didn't forget, they are attempting to make them the equivalent of his flip out guns which were silver

Since he's not really supposed to have any, maybe the chrome's a literal reflection of his OCD? He keeps them polished and shiny because their function is to constantly clean his office/surroundings, like sentient scrubbing bubbles!

Or it's just because his Triggercon guns were chromed on his G1 toy.

Either way, he's a character I've always wanted to see explored further. It'll never happen, but I'd be overjoyed if the upcoming pre-war movie actually depicted him as Cybertron's sanitation director. The only thing I'd love more is seeing Alpha Trion and Emirate Xaaron both have seats on Iacon's high council and get into a shouting match.

Windsweeper and the Insecticons look amazing, especially the latter, and I’m a sucker for that Smashdown mold. The detail and heads are spot on, they’ll be a must grab.

But wow, they just kinda gave up on Breakdown. It is somewhat amusing that he’s a retool and repaint of Bulkhead given their history in the show, but he’s definitely a bit of a letdown.

We might see that - Venom was mentioned in the listings for next year. I hope it's a NEW mold though. As interested as I was in seeing updates for Chopshop and Barrage - I was worried they were just going to revamp the Shrapnel/Bombshell mold. And my fears were justified it turns out. They are indeed just Shrapnel and Bombshell with different colors and a couple different parts remolded here and there.

It's not enough to make me want to buy them (which is just as well, since they're already sold out). I've pretty much had my fill of the Shrapnel/Bombhsell mold with the Legacy Insecticon trio. I want to say, "There's NO WAY they would retool Shrapnel yet again and use him to make Venom" - but Hasbro probably would. Either that, or they'd re-hash the Kingdom Waspinator mold, which wasn't very good.

Yeesh - if they could make customized rear legs for Barrage, why didn't they do that for Bombshell? Instead of using those lame-o gun accessories as his back 'legs'.

Who else would they have been retooled from? This is an Amazon-exclusive subline and those are always retools instead of new molds.

Gave in and pre-ordered Chop Shop and Barrage. Due in August according to Amazon.

Not sure I'll go in on Breakdown and Windsweeper though.

Gotta say, Bulkhead in blue look great... in vehicle mode only.

The mold just does NOT work for any Prime characters. So, if I ever pick this one up, I'll head-swap this for another character.

Got a preorder in for the Insecticons.
Imo those look great and between the colors and retooled parts, they look very different from their original mold mates.

I kind of wish Windsweeper was done in Needlenose’s colors…. Especially with that face sculpt, he looks more like an Autobot to me. It’s a good-looking figure overall, but with more of an Autobot appearance, not sure I’ll bite. Especially with that Breakdown. *yawn*
That face/headsculpt & the rest of the figure clash badly.

Not knowing the character I went back and looked to see for myself and I honestly don't feel that Bulkhead is a very good reuse for Breakdown, at all. Even if it's a realistic/live action take on a Prime character I feel as if they should have used something else entirely, or not even bothered until they had something more accurate to utilize. I'm guessing that Hasbro hasn't yet seen a return on that mold so they needed something to take the bullet? lol

I mean is there any other lesser known character that would have made more sense to reuse Bulkhead for?

I think I saw a digibash somewhere of that mold being used for rescue bots Heatwave

I'm just gonna hold out to see if breakdown gets his own mold at some point, I'm not super attached to the character to care how long it takes (if it happens at all)

The "Amazon exclusive" Wrecker camo version with the General Optimus Prime reprolabels set seal the deal.

Look at all those iconic hammers!

Ordered both. I forgot Windsweeper had ears, the comics have been cutting them off since the 80s, for a moment I thought they were using a head intended for Leozack or something. So glad we're not getting Knockout.

Lmao same here!

When Ransack was revealed he threw a tantrum about it being a repaint and not a new mold even though it looked great. He's probably crying into his pillow over these too, nothing made that kid happy. At least he'll have Venom.

Something I’m just noticing- It appears Breakdown, Wind Sweeper, and that Smashdown redeco have symbols of the Primes on them. Seems like the beginning of the release of the 13, and whatever theme may accompany them?

PotP redo here we go :-?

While I'm glad the Insecticons are finally on the way for those who wanted them, I'm only interested in Windsweeper. Hopefully there will be enough people who get the set just for Breakdown, which to me holds no interest whatsoever. That mold itself has been a big swing and a miss so far for both Bulkhead and now Breakdown.

I'm still looking forward to both Ruckus and Bludgeon, hopefully they'll be done well.

Breakdown's symbol is the IDW2019 Mayhem symbol from the Wreckers comic, not a Prime. Not sure on Windsweeper (didn't look too hard). The hammer is definitely meant to be a solus prime hammer though

They both have the same symbol. It's weird looking in all red, like a Planet X Cyber Key with tentacles.

Somehow this isn't on TFWiki's list of symbols.

And since we now know they're going with the IDW lineup, they really need to give us a Skyquake repapaint already!

Placed a pre-order for both sets. The Deluxe Insecticons do look exactly how I expected, and it's pretty cool. Really helps make em pop, and I'm gonna be very happy displaying these guys with the other Insecticons. Just need Venom now to complete the squad...

I also am glad to have a new Windsweeper, though I will admit it is funny they used the Needlenose mold because they had to give him new Targetmaster buddies heh. Not that I mind at all of course, though it is funny personally considering I had the old Subscription Service figures and those used different molds. I do think this mold looks more like Windsweeper's old form than that figure, though.
I also think Breakdown looks awesome, I was honestly hoping we'd get Clench out of the Bulkhead mold, though seeing as the camo-redeco had Breakdown's hammer, it was inevitable heh. Either way I think the colour scheme looks killer, gonna be happy having a big beefy bot in my collection. ;)^

I join your prayers - I always thought his design was awesome. I have the BotCon figure of him released a while back...and while cool in its own right, I would so very much love a new figure based off of his original self rather than a basic head swap + new paint job heh!

I'm not that much of an obscure Transformers collector, I like the characters that are in the cartoons. Not comics or some japanese exclusive sigar store version.

So, only thing that even catches my eye is Breakdown. Great Swat Team colors, it would be a nice pickup for a reduced Voyager price like 25 euro's (27 usd) but as a 2 pack exclusive, premium, special edition, platinum, collector's edition, gold label, patinum, elitist exclusive for 60 euro's + hell to the nope.

Windsweeper in Needlenose's colors would just be Needlenose. They made Windsweeper from the Needlenose mold.

Well first, I meant using those colors, and more specifically just more of a Decepticon-ish palette rather than one that’s a Chromedome, Roadbuster, warmer, earth tone type. I didn’t literally mean the exact same deco.
The head and face sculpt are obvsly much different that Needlenose’s., which I personally like better.

I am very happy and even impressed with the new Insecticons. I always liked the originals (although only was able to play with them because a close childhood friend had about every TF made), but these updated versions look ever better than I expected.
I’m not claiming everyone should share this opinion by any means, but outside of the main three Insecticons, it’s been a while since there’s been any figures of Decepticon characters that I’ve wanted to purchase. So I appreciate Chop Shop & Barrage even more.
Not to mention, this probably is adding to my excitement for next year’s Constructicons, Megatron, & Swindle.

I mean hey, we're getting those new Rock Lord Infernac bots as newcomers, I don't think it's implausible for something really new like that. But I do agree the toy & toon accuracy means they'll probably be new faces as well.

The head and face sculpt are obvsly much different that Needlenose’s., which I personally like better.

There's a long standing theory that at some point Windsweeper and Dogfight got swapped in production back in the 80s. Windsweeper has chromed weapons like Triggerbots Backstreet and Override while Dogfight has regular guns like Triggercons Ruckus and Crankcase.

Well there's 7 members. I do think it would have been cool during PotP but now that Hasbro is going for super accurate depictions ( whether from toy or animation) I doubt we'll ever get something like an Insecticon combiner.

There's always core class. I'm thinking Kickback and Ransack as legs, Shrapnel and Chop-Shop as arms with pincher-like claws, Bombshell and Barrage as the torso and Venom on the back to give it wings.

Quite right. Completely forgot about Venom. Yet, in light of Volcanicus and Combiner Wars in general. Never say never when it comes to retroactive Gestalts.

How about the Best Wars combiners? They have yet to be remade.

I've championed those for a long time. Magnaboss in particular could do with a modern overhaul. Tripredacus, still one of the best designed combiners to date. Self contained and balanced, with minimal kibble.

Too bad all that translucent plastic has made Tripredacus so fragile.
