Two new images have been found in this month's Preview's Magazine showcasing the fifth wave of Transformers Universe Legends Class figures, and the third wave of Marvel Transformers Crossover figures, and posted at tfw.

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 don't normally buy Legends, but I'm definitively going to have to get Cosmos and WarPath. My old Warpath G1 figure doesn't transform as easily as he used to so I could use a modern update to stand in for him, and Cosmos is one of my fav G1 figures from back in the day.
I may even get Wheelie. I don't know on him though.

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

I'm actually impressed! 3 of the 4 Legends look better than their G1 originals...even Wheelie! And Captain America as a Humvee. Who didn't see that one coming?! Seriously, I've been impressed with some of the Marvel Crossovers as far as their vehicle modes go. Mostly with Venom's alt., but I'm something of a muscle car fan and felt that more TF's should have been done in the classic street rod style. (Big Daddy, '74 Camaro BB and Venom are amongst my favorite figs.)
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'm with Avatar Prime on this one. These aren't your normal legends...these look really nice. I have to admit, I'm also kind of impressed by the Captain America TF. Like we didn't see the Carnage repaint coming a mile away...or the War Machine either. It seems the first molds that were picked were decided on by the fact that they could easily repaint them into other figures: Hulk (grey and green), SPidey (normal and black), Venom/Carnage, Iron Man/War Machine. Smart decision business-wise...annoying for us fans. Thor looks kinda cool too...

I can't beleive I'm saying this but......Wheelie...looks....good! And so do Cosmos and Warpath. Rodimus already has a classics figure....show-off.

I'm not sure if I've said this before... but I LOVE Legends figures!

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.

Thor's a god. Does he really need a suit of fancy battle armour? :???:

Look at it this way: if you were a god, wouldn't you make a giant robot that turned into a plane?

No, I'd be a giant robot that turned into a plane!

Ohhh, I see what you did there.

You'd want friends though.

Is it wrong for me to be excited about buying Wheelie?

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

Okay, that Warpath just completely and utterly RULES. Not sure about Legends Hoot Rod, though... mainly because I'm not a Hot Rod fan.

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

Thor, Captain America, and Wheelie shall be mine!!!

I'm not normally a legends fan, but Hound & Jazz look lonely.

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.

Technicly Thor changes into an A-10 I believe...same plane as Powerglide if memory serves....


And I want ALL the G1 Legends now :P That Warpath is causing drool on my keyboard :shock:

As far as Wheelie goes, maybe if those of us that are actually excited about this new figure don't really advertise the fact...

#-o ...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...

Wait.. Does this mean.. Wheelie is within scale?

I plan to test that out by having Grimlock step on him...repeatedly :grin:

Its in a deleted scene from the movie, I'm sure :-P

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 :D I gotta see if I can find him a to scale fuzzy hat...
