:lol: Yes he does.

Also, I want to point something out that may not be known by all. A BIG difference between the TAV insecticons and the Hasbro generations ones is that Takara molded circles in their chests to acomodate the stickers.

I think they were deigned with Transformers G1 in mind, but why add them to the Transformers Adventure lineup :-?

:lol: Nice to see a fellow whovian.

Well, Takara is simply considering the TAV line a catch all line to issue a bunch of figures. There's animated redecos, older generations figures and these here. I agree that they should be more for the legends line but Takara is marketting for kids here with the interactivity so I guess they think that market is more lucrative for these figures.

Though, the bios given to each Adventure toy peg them as characters native to Adventure's continuity. Adventure Lockdown, for instance, isn't the same guy as Animated Lockdown.

Yes, definitely but for fans picking these toys up, I dont think they are stopping from buying these because the bios dictate that these insecticons are different characters an thus cant be on their shelves with their other classics toys.

I feel the bio is more of a way to incorporate these toys within the app/continuity rather than the toys being mae to be part of this app/continuity. Similarly to how they did their Legends line. Sure, there is a legends universe where they all fit together, but that's just a cute side extra for fun rather than be a fully developped universe created inorder to sell these toys. What I am saying here is that in both cases, the toys come before the fiction rather than being a product of it.

I think the question is: why not release them under the Legends line? They are obviously 'G1' enough for it, and TT released other continuity figures under that banner too (primal, slipstream, etc.)

I guess Takara, for some reason, doesn't want the Legends line to have any figures smaller than Deluxe class anymore. Maybe the Swerve & Tailgate 2-pack didn't do so hot or something.

Well, TakaraTomy did say they wanted to change directions with the Legends line, maybe that's part of it? Or maybe singles are logistically easier to plan releases for?

At any rate, given that the Legends-sized figure come in twos, how would you have paired them? We have:

Bombshell
Shrapnel
Powerglide
Cosmos/Adams
Blackjack/Runabout
Groove/Override

I'd have either done three VS packs of one Bot and one Con each, or one Insectrons set, one Minibots set, and one VS pack of the Blackjack/Runabout mold vs. the Groove/Override mold.

But that still doesnt explain why TAV 31 Black Shadow was not released in the Legends line.

While we have already covered Wave 3 of the Transformers Robots in Disguise Mini-Cons, we have yet to give you galleries of the Wave 2 offering. This wave consisted of Ratbat, Beastbox, Velocirazor, and Sandsting. Collecting all four gave you the necessary pieces to put together a cool energon shark figure. This is the last wave to give such a bonus and it is surprising that this feature was not shown in the instructions when it seems well thought out and well executed. These minicons work with either Deployers Drift or Fracture depending on the shape.

I almost bought Ratbat but held off. The fact that you couldn't spread his wings was a huge turn off. He looks like a simian, not a bat.

Yeah, the non-existent articulation has lowered this entire line to the level of a pitiful joke for me =;

I'd definitely pick up some of these if the articulation was increased, like Sandsting and Ratbat

That is ironic that they don't want the legends line to have legends anymore... ;)

Well, now they seem to have changed their mind about that since the Legends line will be getting Legends class Titans Returns molds in it.

Having overcome that milestone 4000 gallery mark, Seibertron.com is now on its way up towards that 5000 gallery trophy, and to help bring us up to speed we are proud to show off our latest gallery: Robots In Disguise Legion Class Ratchet and Blizzard Strike Optimus Prime! These tiny little titans that everyone knows and loves thanks to the Season 2 finale as well as Transformer: Prime both get the legends class treatment, with Optimus being the typical blue deco we all know and love, and Ratchet is a retool of Strongarm, as his warrior toy shall be too. You can reference the toys with their previous versions, with Strongarm being HERE and Prime's warrior toy being HERE
