Distribution is wild. Turns out Metalhawk shipments landed in North America a little while ago and the smaller stores have been quicker to get them to their clients. While BBTS is in the process of fulfilling orders, some Canadians (like me) were able to get him live. The one pictured below (by me) was bought at the store Geekstuff in Laval, Qc, where he is still in stock at $50 CAD ($37 USD). While a review is coming, here are some in hand images first. We see a comparison to Cyclonus, his mold mate, and the Titans Return Metalhawk. Plus lots of other images showcasing his effects part compatibility and scale with other figures.

Looks like I can be lazy then.
I'll open my Metalhawk later.

Now all I'll need is the Botcon Metalhawk.
And if I ever find a Monkey Paw, the original and complete G1...

I can understand that time frame for an all new mold, but for a retool it shouldn't take as long as they only need to adjust the new to fit the old. A repaint it should be even far less.

It's not just some retool like a new head. At least 60% of the thing is all new parts. Those take time to do. Regardless, Kingdom Cyclonus is not that old so unless you have the life expectancy of a mouse, the timeframe was relatively short.

Wow great pics. Even side by side I see very little similarities to Kingdom Cyclonus. I'm glad I pre ordered him. I wonder if I can request a picture with him next to ER Prime and Kingdom Rodimus.

That original Skyquake concept design isn't a bad design overall, but it also definitely isn't Skyquake, so I guess I'm glad now that people complained so much about Bulkhead and Arcee even though I don't have problems with either of them. Shame it came too late to fix Knock Out though. I am confused what exactly he's saying is inaccurate about the current deco though, since the leaks and the samples shown here and on Tuesday all match the box renders & art as well?

Also, Metalhawk arriving already?! Guess I might seriously consider putting in a BBTS preorder at this rate.

Pretty sure it will be the remaining deluxe Junkion
Did they say Deluxe Class when they confirmed the name and I missed it, or is this just an assumption? It'd make their comment about the pipeline stuff not all being 1 wave make sense if they revealed 3 Voyagers between Dirge, Nemesis Leo, and Axlegrease being our mystery Voyager Junkion, if Axlegrease is the "Junkion 3" Deluxe I'm confused why they felt the need to say that (and that'll lead to a kinda-short Lockdown if all that "the muscle car Junkion is a Lockdown pretool" speculation pans out).

ZeldaTheSwordsman wrote:Twincast is... a mixed bag for me.
While it's interesting to know that I was wrong and that the Eject mold is apparently completely separate from his sprues (since the tape window is red while Rewind is black)... that means that they didn't have to include Rewind with him and could have given us the expanded tape door instead, with Rewind being sold in a pack or something.
...or it just means they used switch-gating (I think is the right term?) to get all the parts the correct color despite still technically sharing the sprue, like how Minerva came out with 3 different colors of clear plastic parts.

I agree with all of this
Skyquake looks great now, previous design would've been a big letdown
Bulkhead and Arcee weren't perfect but I own both and I like them enough
Knock Out I just couldn't justify purchasing. The character is cool but the headsculpt just bothers me too much

He mentioned "candy metallic" so I'm thinking the red is supposed to be metallic as well to match the silver and green paint details instead of dark gloss red. They also could have decided to add a metallic coating to all the green similar to What Takara Tomy used to do with a lot of their figures.

Here is a review for the newly revealed Transformers Legacy Evolution voyager Metalhawk. This item is out at specialty retailers, along with Twincast. The review below compares the mold to Cyclonus, showing how it is less complex in certain places. So, with this toy available at collector retailers in Canada and the US, are you going to be getting it now? Or wait to see if Walmart or Target stock it sufficiently in stores?

Re: Legacy Metalhawk in Stock at North American Collector Stores + In Hand Images (2155150)

This just all makes me think about what could have been if Fun Pub had instead used Universe Cyclonus to make Metalhawk back in 2012.

Can his wing tips also take blast effect parts?

I think we can thank his simplicity for getting us two guns and a sword instead of just one very hollow gun like on Cyclonus.

Great, I wasn't all that thrilled with the tail wing guns being blocked in jet mode so it's good to know the ones on the wing tips are actually intended as guns.

I just transformed Metalhawk and he's just 50% Cyclonus. The transformation is much more simple, with less steps. Also this time around, the arms turn to the front of the jet instead of the back.
Metalhawk is still pretty massive and he got a LOT of paint. It's just too bad that he doesn't have a gold plated chestplate, but that would have been overkill.

As for Rewind, he's pretty awesome. But man, they really overdid it with his accessories. :lol:

What is up with Hasbro & their jet modes lately? Jhiaxus, Skyquake & now Metal Hawk have absolutely godawful alt modes. I'm all about jet & spaceship Transformers but I won't touch any of these. I was really looking forward to this one because there haven't been many jet transformers recently but I almost puked when I saw that jet mode. What the hell happened to Hasbro? They're not even trying anymore. :(

3/4 of your posts are just about being negative and depressing over nonsensical things.

And almost all your posts, when responding to people who dislike certain designs/lines, are just about how wrong their opinions are (especially bad, when you're a member of staff). Sorry, not all of us are happy with the way Transformers are progressing.

This used to be a forum where we could discuss differing views civilly, but apparently it's become an "agree with us, or go away" site... sad.

I really like Skyquake's alt mode, looks pretty solid

Jhiaxus is good too, I thought. Lots of undercarriage, if thats the part that you dislike

When I first saw Metalhawks jet mode I didn't like it either, looks kind of ugly and oversimplified. But then I saw how it looked in the cartoon on this forum and the design looks pretty faithful. How did you feel about the alt mode for Cyclonus though?

I'm quite impressed by the retool effort shown on metalhawk here, I also like Skyquake but everyone's tastes are subjective (I'm not a big fan of the attempt of animated Prowl for instance but I won't begrudge anyone who wants it).

Here's a way to think about Animated Prowl: He deliberately restyled his body to blend in, because Ninja.

So, Black Zarak is technically Legacy (if by way of Selects). And so...

TBH, I do miss the aesthetics of the original G1 Bots when a Jet looked exactly like a jet with no robot body hanging underneath. That said, the transformation back then was very simplified so such a thing could be achieved.

With all the articulation built into them today I can understand how it might be impossible or jut way too costly to incorporate it into the jet body. Fortunately I display all my transformers in Bot mode so it doesn't bother me as much, and if I did display them in alt mode I suppose a person could display them in a way that the underneath isn't seen.

That was really mainly the Seekers and Jetfire, and later on the Decepticon Targetmasters. And, if you were feeling particularly generous, the Aerialbot limbs.

Silverbolt was one of the worst offenders of "robot body underneath"

Cyclonus was also guite guilty of it:

And so, in point of fact, was Metalhawk.

For what it's worth, the Seekers are still reasonably good at hiding the robot-ness.

Hasbros really going to try selling blitzwing again hahaha -though they have got quite good at polishing turds :/

Core I can ignore. Really doubting any version that hasbro does of armada megatron is going to be better than the original toy. Unfortunate choices for some of the package refreshes :( and seems to be a sudden drop off of prime characters and a lack of other universe transformers.

Deluxe:
Beachcomber maybe but cant see it beating the POTP version.
Shadowstriker maybe
Strongarm maybe
Detritus depends how good the mold is, if its siege easy pass
Devcon will have to see it but not much interest in him. Will be interesting to see what they do with him as a deluxe rules out scourge or metalhawk repaint

Voyager:
Nemesis Leo maybe
Dirge yep
Bludgeon will have to be something special, I'll likely go for super7s as I'm happy with my Baynus Bludgeons.

Leader:
Prime Dreadwing when on sale

This is pretty much my stance on this one, even more so after getting Cosmos and seeing him tower over BB. I know they all weren't the same height but I though he was closer to BB's height if maybe a head taller.

So for beachcomber to be DLX I'm worried it too will be too tall and possibly bulky to fit in with Bee as well as Seaspray. Since i already have POTP version I'm in no real hurry to replace it as it does fit in with those other minibots. And the one I want them to do next more than anyone else is Powerglide. Mainly so I know whether to get the Legends version or not.

Dunno Stateside but over here he is still plentiful at £40 at smyths and even a little bit cheaper at game £38, He wasnt shifting at full price and was reduced pretty quick after he came out (though TM2 megatron being available for £38 through amazon prior to release suggests leader price shouldnt be £50+ anyways). Like some of the previous package refreshes im sure legacy version will be on the shelves next to the new packaging.

Haven't fans expressed grievances at only finding wave 1 in stores? Re-releasing him is a way to address those grievances.


I could be wrong, but I believe that is mostly in reference to Deluxes. At least in my area wave 2 voyagers were plentiful, even at Walmart, Jhiaxus is still shelfwarming. Wave 2 core was "blink and its gone", and Blitzwing, while not having a ton of shelf presence, was at least able to be obtained. I even saw one today at a Walmart.

Wave 2 deluxes I only ever saw at Target a couple of times (some fans never did). I just last week saw a single Crankcase, but never saw any other deluxe, or any Voyager, or Leader wave 3 at all.

I got my Legacy Breakdown and Scraphook today, which is pretty fun considering I only just ordered them Thursday night from Pulse.

Breakdown is breakdown, nothing really exciting. The best thing I did with him was throw him onto Menasor as a back calf. 3 of the 5 Mena-cons really did turn out pretty mediocre. The combiner itself is nice, but the latter 3 cons kinda made me like him less. I actually almost prefer him without the leg bots, and Dead End just does not look good on the arm like Dragstrip does. He's nice, and better than CW, but he's still a bit disappointing.

Scraphook is really awesome, I love his highly greebled scrappy design, and the colors in hand are ace. He is so much fun, and his truck mode is rad too. He is great, highlight of the wave so far for me. He also makes a cool leg

He has a combiner peg?

And "Mena-cons?" You mean Stunticons? Their official name?

Updated wave breakdowns for legacy evo wave 3 and 4. What’s interesting is voyager Ramjet PR is listed in neither assortments but is still listed across multiple store systems. I’ll keep y’all posted if I get anymore info on his availability.

Wave 3: July

Core:
Skar x2
Swoop x2
Starscream PR x2
Grimlock x2

Deluxe:
Beachcomber x2
Devcon x2
Axelgreese x2
Tarantulas PR x2

Voyager:

Leader:
Armada Megatron x1
Blitzwing PR x1

Wave 4: October

Strongarm x2
Bombshell x2
Detritus x2

Voyager:
Junkion x2
Bludgeon x1

Leader:
Prime Dreadwing x1
Laser Optimus Prime PR x1
Okay there HAS to be a wave 5, I realize I've said this many times now but we've got "ROBO WLD RDR", Cheetor, Wheeljack, & Ramjet repacks, that Leader Optimus listing that's probably the "Holiday Prime in G1 colors" the designers just teased, and now a Bomb-Burst repack all unaccounted for in the 4 waves we know or maybe I'm just trying to cope with the fact that now I may actually have to spend $20+ just to get Bomb-Burst at all.

Other than that, all that's really changed here is that Shadow Striker got shifted back a wave in favor of Tarantulas getting repacked earlier, we know for sure that Axlegrease is the last Deluxe Junkion, and we know the order of the Voyagers and the Leader repacks.

Also according to JTPrime:
-Bludgeon is shortpacked because he "isn't the new mold of the case" (confirming the suspicion that Bludgeon is a Tarn retool, while also confirming that the Voyager Junkion is something new and not another SS86 Wreck-Gar retool)
-Shadow Striker's packaging is indeed supposed to say "Cyberverse Universe Shadow Striker"
-Medix (remember that leak?) isn't Selects, but JTPrime still doesn't know how he actually will be releasing

blackeyedprime wrote:Detritus depends how good the mold is, if its siege easy pass
If it helps, it seems all but certain at this point that Detritus will either use the Siege mold, or (probably more likely) the SS86/Buzzworthy earth mode retool of the Siege mold, seeing as how there's a Voyager Junkion in the same wave that may be filling "modular Junkion" duty for the wave and Wave 4 almost always contains at least one figure that's just a repaint or a new-head retool.

Munkky wrote:Has much been leaked about Wal-Mart or Amazon exclusives for this year?
-Amazon has zero leaks thus far, but the designers have expressed interest in doing a second wave of Wreckers and there were Fractyl and Diaclone Topspin rumors from last year that never panned out.
-Walmart has listings but most of them don't actually say the names of the characters, so all we know is that it has 4-5 currently-unnamed Deluxes, 1 currently-unnamed Deluxe repack, 1 currently-unnamed Voyager, and both G2 Grimlock and a currently-unnamed Leader.

The Voyager Junkion in wave 4 is interesting. I would think it would be another character from TF:TM, but then I'd think it would be in SS, unless it was slotted in L:E because SS was too full? On the other hand, if this is another made up Junkion/ weaponizer perhaps this is the "team leader", and much like the Stunticons, we will get the 5th and final member in wave 1 2024?

Nope. But he has a perfectly centered 5mm peg. And one of the designers hinted on Twitter in response to a leg mode picture that there was more to that than just speculation.

Mena-cons was a name I typed by mistake, but I liked it. You don't always have to type the official name, as seen with a certain Dinobot in this wave of figures.

Besides, the combined form ended up being a let down for me.

Thanks to JT Prime we have a breakdown of the Legacy Toys coming out for the rest of the year. This shows us the month they are meant for release, which characters are getting repacked and which ones are getting shortpacked. For instance, we see here that Bludgeon will be shortpacked. And we now see that Axelgraese is indeed the upcoming deluxe car Junkion we've seen on the poster.

This is not spread bad news, but otherwise to give you a heads up as to which toy you should probably preorder instead of waiting to find in stores, since online places like BBTS or Hasbro Pulse may get solid cases instead of the assortment cases shown below, which end up at Walmart and Target.

Also PR means package refresh, these are toys from previous lines that are rereleased in this line.

Wave 3: July

Core:
Skar x2
Swoop x2
Starscream PR x2
Grimlock x2

Deluxe:
Beachcomber x2
Devcon x2
Axelgreese x2
Tarantulas PR x2

Voyager:
Nemesis Leo x2

Leader:
Armada Megatron x1
Blitzwing PR x1

Wave 4: October

Optimus Prime PR x2
Sludge x2
Slug x2

Deluxe:
Shadowstriker x2
Strongarm x2
Bombshell x2
Detritus x2

Voyager:
Junkion x2
Bludgeon x1

Leader:
Prime Dreadwing x1

I think this will be a bigger junkion weaponizer to go with the rest of this year's gimmick
