The fifth wave of Universe Legends figures features Wheelie, Cosmos, Warpath and Rodimus, and this image is the first time that these figures have been publicly seen, with previous images only released in the TFCC magazine. The fifth wave of Legends figures is due in stores in January 2009.
The third wave of the Marvel Transformers figures will feature Captain America as a Hummer, Thor as a Prop Plane, War Machine as a Jet and Carnage as a muscle Car. It is expected that these figures will also be available in January 2009.

I may even get Wheelie. I don't know on him though.

I'm glad (and somewhat amazed) that Warpath isn't just a repaint of the recent Legends Megatron!

Warpath appears to have more articulation now and Cosmos certainly looks more streamlined. Until Drift comes out I may actually end up buying more Legends and RH figures than Deluxe class from any of the other lines. They certainly seem to be improving their approach to designing them.

I just picked up Prime, Prowl and BB tonight and I can't wait for the next two amazing waves!
I honestly think I'm looking forward to these more than I am Cyclonus and Hound.

No, I'd be a giant robot that turned into a plane!
Ohhh, I see what you did there.

Cosmos looks good also, Not as nice as the canceled Titanium version. But it is better than nothing I suppose.

These look like they'll be the best Legends since Cyb Starscream, et al.

I'm also liking Thor. I've seen the pics of the alt mode, and it's supposed to be an A-10 Thunderbolt (get it), not a prop plane like the image says.
Looking closely at Cap, does he look like a remold of the Wolverine crossover? Maybe he just has a similar bot mode, I dunno.

...well, never mind. I guess we'll just own up to the fact that some of us may actually go out and buy a Wheelie figure since Hasbro has finally given us one that is even better than we imagined.
I just don't know about Thor being a prop plane. It seems a little...insulting... to have a God relegated to the form of a prop job. Should have been something solid, devastating or immovable.
Tank was already done, construction rig seems too grungy for Thor but there has to be something else dignified...Space Shuttle!!!
Large, Thunderously loud, powerful and far mor dignified than a simple plane. Who's with me on this?
Why do I hear crickets chirrping in the background?
He's an A-10 Thunderbolt? Yeah, Thunderbolt, I get it...well, if not a shuttle I'll settle for the play on the name. At least it's not a prop. plane. Probably has sparks flying out of it's...

Its in a deleted scene from the movie, I'm sure
I've gotta say the only one I Don't like is War Machine...he'd be so much cooler as a tank. That, and the repaint pretty much looks like the MK II armor from the movie, rather than a good representation of War Machine (It should be black and white I believe)
Carnage would be a loss, except that i've allready got plans to kitbash him into Pimpmobile Deadpool I gotta see if I can find him a to scale fuzzy hat...
