I've been examining all the new pictures of Magmatron & Tidal Wave from the Hasbro China event this past weekend.

Its a shame they didn't design AIRLOCK connectors on Tidal Wave for city-building fans like myself (at least none that I've been able to spot). Seems (after skipping them on The Ark) they went out of the way to add them to Cybertron Metroplex & The Nemesis when they really weren't necessary, but skipped them on Tidal Wave which they actually designed a base mode for. :???:

It was only officially revealed less than a week ago, but we can now confirm that Legacy United's only new Wave 2 Core Class figure, Beast Machines Cheetor, has been found at retail in the U.S. While most retailers show a shipping date of April 1st, he can be found now in stores. This example was found at a Target in Centerville, Utah, along with his repacked Wave mates, Energon Megatron and Infernac Bouldercrash.

Image

If Wave 1 distribution was anything to go by, the rest of wave 2 should trickle into stores in the next couple of months.

Have you found any new or newly announced figures in stores in your area? Please let us know, and let us know if you plan plan to pick up the latest addition to the Legacy United line.

I've only seen Core figures and nothing else from wave one and only at Target. Usually wave one is the wave that gets over saturated in stores, and here we have what will likely be wave two showing up first for many of us.

Unfortunately with all of Legacy using the same SKU retailers don't know the difference. That's why you have 2+ year old product still in some locations. Hasbro made a smart move back in 2018 starting with PotP and making every year a different SKU. I wonder why they changed it for Legacy? Because of my current schedule I barely go into retail stores anymore. But I know I'm not missing much. I believe I had the same experience , only seeing the core class on one occasion at a Target. Thankfully, there's not a lot in this line I'm interested in, just getting them on Amazon.

Thanks to Notrab on Weibo, we have new in hand images of some big ticket Transformers items soon coming our way.

They have in hand images of Legacy United Tidal Wave, Magmatron and the Target Exclusive Target Optimus and Bullseye set. Of course, these images are enhanced with filters, to make the toys look as good as possible. We go get good shots of all of Tidal Wave's many modes. Enjoy!

That Tidal Wave looks better each time I see him. I hope eventually we get a toy/game colors version, and maybe even an Energon version. I'm just annoyed he won't be able to directly transform from warship to robot. He's basically a giant parts former. So was Omega, but still.

just back from having a root about SMYTHS in dublin.

theres an absolute RAKE of leader blitzwings in for 27.99 euro

https://www.smythstoys.com/ie/en-ie/toy ... e/p/225321

which is a great deal.

i presume its the same in the UK with a price about £25 or so. dunno where they came from as he's been absent for an age now.

also TITAN class Nemisis has been reduced to €150. but its pretty much sold out everywhere so thats worth feck all.

theres ONE left in my local (even though the website says its NOT there :) ) and im tempted to chance another reduction to 100 but TBH its not that bad a price now so may pick it up.

That is a great deal. IN North America, to my knowledge, there hasn't been any reduction in prime on The nemesis. Its sold out at most places. BBTS is taking pre-orders for retail price at $199.99, for anothjer order expected any time, but they've been known to get late orders on Titans (That's How I got Omega Supreme) .

The cheapest 3rd party seller on Amazon is asking $300 :shock:
Cheapest on eBay currently has multiple bidders at $162 + 53.05 shipping. So... People are paying above retail for Titan Nemesis less than a year after its release.

Target is getting another 4 pack this year, as we've gotten in the previous three years. And we now know what it includes thanks to some leaked images.

The content of the exclusive pack are:

  • G1 Squeezeplay based on the Titans Return Mindwipe mold
  • Prime Cliffjumper, based on the Legacy Chase retool
  • Cyberverse Tarn, based on the Legacy Tarn mold (seems to just be a redeco)
  • Orange BW Tarantulas, referencing the early toy ads and cross sell images, based on the Kingdom Tarantulas mold (sporting the robot head rather than the mutant head)

This is meant to be officially revealed tomorrow.

P. Cliff is all around PERFECT. That's a small miracle for a Legacy Prime figure. Too bad it's in a 4 pack where I don't give a single F about the others.

Dammit. I really want that cliffjumper. That would be the definitive version of him in my collection

But the others are a waste of space and money for me. Money is one thing but I really am tight on space and want to stick only with characters I'm really attached to and versions of them I want most

Extra spiderbot and ugly monster guy, fine I guess. But Tarn bothers me the most. I already have the other version with the better paint job. That one I can't even do mental gymnastics to justify in my head.

Interesting set, Squeezeplay and Cliffjumper are the most interesting for me.

Tarn is interesting, but to really look like his Cyberverse self they should have replaced the clear red plastic with teal so his face can look like this:

Image

Even if it says Tarn on the box instead of "Perfect Decepticon" I'm sure there'll be people who will complain about not being able to army build him.

I don't like clear plastic, but Tarantulas would be perfect if only they used clear orange plastic instead of opaque.

Image

I'm surprised they went with those pre-production colors and not actual toy colors like they did with Blackarachnia. Considering we aren't likely to get an Earthrise Tarantulas I would have liked to have seen this mold colored like that (which is basically his Transmetal colors).

It's CJ & Squeezeplay for me. I still love my 1st Ed. TFP CJ, but its ball joints are all loose, so if I get this set one of them will be repainted into Dark Energon corrupted CJ.

Costs too much for a PO, and me being in Canada, TRU don't even do PO so that's moot. I'll wait for a clearance.

However, IF Hasbro included a set of alt-heads somehow for all 4 bots, THAT is a different story and worthy of a bought on sight.

Pretty sure Tarantulas came out in Legacy Year 1. But this set feels more like a "screw it, let's throw them in a single set" vibe than past multipacks. But I do like CJ and Squeezeplay the most.

This feels like a bit of a shitty attitude from the leakers. These are supposed to be shown tomorrow and they leak them like 12 hours before? It's a bit weird.

I dig Tarantula's prototype colors, toy colors wouldn't have made any sense since those aren't too different from the show ones, so glad they went that way with the recolor for this mold. Plus, most people can't get their hands on a prototype, while there's a chance to have the original figure. Rhinox and Rattrap are the only ones who haven't been reused so far, right? I hope they do either Dark Designs or Fox Kids colors for Rhinox; and Packrat for Rattrap... Or maybe Arcee, lol.

No one on Seibertron wanted an updated Squeezeplay more than me, but sweet Primus, how did he end up looking so much better than his original toy in bot mode, but like some sort of giant custom Kreon in creature mode? Oh well, you can't have everything.

And I am suddenly so happy I never shelled out for Tarn online after never seeing him in store. Not as happy as the Cybertronian grunt last year made me though; nothing will likely ever top that Target-exclusive 4-pack, the most Buzz-worthy of all time.

CJ is oddly the one I'm most meh about. Legacy screwing the pooch on the aesthetics of Prime characters up until now means that even when Hasbro does one right, it just makes me want to shell out for vintage stuff I never got. Legacy would seriously have to start churning out new Arms Microns to make me give a crap at this point. But he looks good.

Now, as for alternate-reality Tarantulas...does anyone else ever find their mind instantly projects a persona onto a new toy at first sight, and then you can't shake it, no matter how little was ever backing it up? Whatever this Tarantulas's prowess in ninjutsu is, I can't see him as having any of his cartoon counterpart's genius. In fact, he looks so dim-witted that I pity him, and yet IDK why I'm jumping to this conclusion. I think the two factors at play are the similarity to Scorponok's prototype color scheme, and an issue of the unofficial G2 Continued comic that depicted him as wandering the wasteland apparently brain-damaged or something. I'm sure I'll get some other random impression of him once his toy's in hand, and that really will take me back to the good ol' Beast Wars days, when some toys simply exuded personality when handled, most notably both versions of Spittor.

Easy pass on all of these. Prime Cliffjumper would be nice (or at least an improvement over the pre-existing figures). But not having one won't cause me to fret that my collection is 'missing' anything. But what's taking so long with Leader 86 Swoop? It's bad enough that they bungled Snarl by not making enough figures...

The 4-pack is up on Target.com and they have a spend $75, save $20 Target Circle offer, so a great deal and pre-ordered.

Got one on Pulse just in case since it was listed there first at 9am.

Still got it on Target (at 9:20 when it went up) though because it's $20 off as the $20 off a $75 toy purchase coupon worked for it. I also used my Red card and had $19 saved up on rewards. So I got the set for only $41.78.

Which means that they'll be sure to cancel my order first chance they get even after I approve the preorder delay. They seem more likely to cancel the preorders when they were put up during a sale. Or rather, that's what it seems like to me anyway.

I've been wanting Squeezeplay forever. That was one of my favorites way back when. It's going to be amazing to finally get a real update that's not just that little T-Rex to wyvern Titanmaster Crashbash from Titans Return or the redecoed Titan/Headmaster Cancer from Takara. Just one more now. Hopefully it won't be two years away again.

The rest are fine I guess.

While I did see why people thought Chase would be used for Prime Cliffjumper, I don't much care for it. It's fine and all, I just though this would make a better RotF Lockdown with how the weapon system works, how the legs work, the parts layout for robot mode, the transformation and so on. Hasbro seems to know that the Star Seekers Lockdown isn't perfect though so maybe it's still in the works. That Chase mold just screamed Lockdown to me when I first got it in hand.

Tarn is Tarn I guess. I have retail Tarn. I now have Cyberverse Tarn. Two if I don't cancel the Pulse preorder which I will as it gets closer to release. I was kinda hoping for RiD Blastwave or Banzaitron from Bludgeon or RiD Megatronus from Tarn or as another retool. Blastwave in particular for this set so Cliffjumper isn't the lone Autobot again.

Tarantulas is cool. Almost looks like Drill Bit or Drillnuts in that shade of brown/orange. Which could work from that mold if they retooled the beast head, the beast legs and swapped the mandibles/robot arms for the horn and drill. Swap another few pieces to get Insecticon and Beetle.

Tarantula's toy DID have an intelligence of FOUR on his tech specs back in the day. Ninja Tarantulas and Mutant Tigatron! Iconic boxart that never happened duo.
