I'm still waiting for confirmation on the name. I mean, don't we all remember the trend of naming a reborn Megatron "Galvatron?" If that's the case, Bay wasn't too far off ;)

Legends aren't really my thing I'm afraid, but I'll probably only get the leaders, since that's all I have :P

We already saw a fast action battler and it said Megatron on the box, so we're pretty sure it's megatron.

I don't know if the image is just inverted or what, but Megatron's big cannon arm is on the wrong side.

I've never been into the Legends Class figures, and not sure I'll get any in the future, but these look pretty sweet...
Well, I'm not so sure about Ratchet.

Is it confirmed that Megatron is not in the movie at all????

That Megatron is a mess....But it's better than the last one i guess...

There is a Legends Sideswipe too here:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 0133549983

So I'm guessing this is the entire 2nd wave of Legends. wave 1 is probably Optimus, Bumblebee, Springer and Jetfire, then these four.

Holy cow! A Movie Legends Megatron that doesn't look like a pile of Crap! I might actually buy that!
Sideswipe looks way beeter though - sold on him!

Megatron looks pretty crap after some of the Universe Legends. I'm not even sure it's better than 1st movie Megatron. That had a pretty good recreation of the alt mode. Don't like this alt mode. Hate hate hate H-tanks. But it won't look so bad if the turret can turn to face the other way.

On the plus side, it looks like he's got shoulder, elbow, hip and knee articulation. And the paint job is bitchin. The black and silver is badass.

The Starscream and Ratchet molds could really have been retired. They were among the worst legends first time around.

Sideswipe, I'm in awe. That's well up to par. The only thing I don't get is how they managed to use 3 shades of blue paint. That's a bit of a head scratcher. One shade would have sufficed for everything, and it makes no sense to paint the side windows a different shade from the windshield. But so what. Gotta have it.

Actually I'm kinda digging the "fade" effect...

Hmm, could be. Looked like light reflection to me.

Still seems like the extra paint app might've been better used elsewhere, but we'll have to see how it looks in person.

Nah I don't think that's the light...I'm pretty sure it's painted that way...Pretty snazzy for a Legend...

It looks like they've put all their best thinkers to work on the various Sideswipe toys... considering the G1 version was always one of my favorites, I see this as a Good Thing. :D

And with a Legends version, I can test out to see how a red repaint looks before buying a second Deluxe and repainting it. :)

Not interested in the Starscream and Ratchet, but I like the sideswipe, and the Megatron is O.K. :-?
