We recommend you watch the video since it shows something truly unique with the arm transformation. You do not separate the car mode before plugging it in, it separates after being snapped on as part of the arm transformation. The legs also have an automorph gimmick where pluging in the cars into the back of the leg close a panel to make it look like the underside of the car in grey, just like the cartoon did.

Tarantulus looks OK. Yes, the proportions are a little off. But look at Kingdom Scorponok and say that HE was any better :).

Looking forward to trying to corral the Legacy Stunticons.

Will Knockout be compatible with the Legacy Menasor frame?

That arm transformation for menasor really impressed me. That's like a step higher for a combiner, integrating two components to then transform them together as one. They asked if that's a first for transformers and it is not, since Tidal Wave also had that. But it is hard to do and really cool.

Doubtful. He's supposed to be a retool of Jazz. The Stunticons are all-new molds.

Elita looks alright, the vehicle mode made me chuckle. Looks a bit derpy.

I'm looking forward to Tarantulas, looks like they got the mold right, but he should be a bit darker shade of purple. No Inferno?

I knew Soundwave was coming, but it still irks me just a bit we didn't get the 'clean' version right away.

Delta Magnus: YES! Jhiaxus: HELL YES!

Granted, that is exactly what the description said it would be, a package refresh of the soundwave and so the only option was that siege one.

Tarantulus looks great, just makes it more a pity they didnt give blackarachnia her spider face bits. Tarsantulus really wouldnt suit a toy/black arachnia redeco but i'd be tempted just to have blackarachnia.

Knock out looks great, cthru plastic headlights? YAY going back to being more genertations feel of figures and yet another great car mode which can't often be said.

Elita 1, meh. Might be more interested in the retool/minerva. It's not bad by any means just really superfluos at this point. Would prefer a RID strongarm or something.

Jiaxhus, looks Ugly in all the right ways. Picking him up but i'm kind of at a blank on his reuse or retooling down the line.

Shattered Glass Magnus, nope. Its a badly overpriced figure in the first place and doesnt really cut it as delta magnus with the head option if his shattered glass symbol cant be replaced.

Motormaster does well to hide how ugly dragstrip is with out having to pose hime awkwardly. Not sure if it showed the base have any kind of connectivity to anything and lack of a ramp is kinda disapointing. shame no optional little car with him for his chest. I'll likely pick him up if he goes cheap at some point.

Siege soundwave...yikes. even netflix mold is pretty bad but hey ho. Easiest pass of the line.

Yeah I wish it was that mold in these colors. That figure was better repping the toy while the Siege version's dark blue legs are closer to the G1 comic. Now we just need a purple version in Selects :-D
TRIPLE YES on the other two! 1 o'clock can't get here fast enough.
Yeah I'm waiting on that as well.

Yes to freaking all of those. Other than Soundwave as a re-release

Jehaxius lo9ks incredible.

Knockout is not as svelte as I would like but the car mode is spot on and all the bot mode details are there, so it's still a home run. Need a proper Breakdown for him as I don't th8nk he will work with the Prime one asthetically?

Elita is not be any means a perfect figure but this may be the first truly good G1 fembot in Generations now. With proper alt mode integration and a tolerable backpack. And it gives me hope now for the rumored Override.

On the whole I prefer integrated combines but they did a fantastic job with the menasor sculpt and the Motormaster trailer looks fun as all get out. Easily worth the trade off.

Will be going with Delta Magnus, and giving the other head to SG Prime to do the "Alas poor Uric... I really hated him" thing with.

Trantulas was an easy sell for me as well.

The symbol is easily replaced, but I did notice that as well. The Kingdom version required me to buy a symbol.

It's a shame Soundwave isn't a repackage of the Netflix version, I think a lot of people would be happier with that. Instead, it's the Siege version without the battle damage and at the now higher price that Voyagers retail at... I imagine he'll be a bit of a shelf warmer tbh.

Jhiaxus looks good, little bit chunky in alt mode but robot mode looks great.

Menasor definitely looks good. I do feel his trailer seems a little short in alt mode but it more than makes up for it when in combined mode. I really like the way the rest of the stunticons connect to it and the added versatility of it as a toy by having CW ports on there too. Hopefully though, the ones on Menasor are stronger so we won't have any loose joint issues like most CW ones did

There were no reveals for Legacy Wave 2 Core Class, but I think it’s just repacks of Optimus Prime, Iguanus, and Megatron in G2 green and purple colors. Not an exciting line-up, so I get why they didn’t bother.

I’m very impressed with the Deluxe assortment for Legacy Wave 2, though! Elita One looks excellent. I appreciate the work that went into her design, even though they gave her an Earth mode instead of a more obviously Cybertronian vehicle. All of the color details are in the right spots, evoking a sense that Elita would have looked like this if she had come to Earth in the original cartoon. It’s also a nice touch that the (faux) helmet detail on the vehicle mode is removable, so you can have the G1 kibble or leave it off for a cleaner vehicle mode. The customizable backpack kibble is also welcome. I hope we do get another accessory pack in the future to provide her classic pistol weapon.

Tarantulas looks like a “Mini Masterpiece.” Enough said! I can’t wait to add him to my Predacon display. Wildrider looks very nice, especially in vehicle mode. Though not mentioned in the reveal, I suspect the backpack kibble in robot mode has multiple display options, like Elita One. It looks like you can opt not to split the fenders off from the hood to put the front car tires higher up, right behind the shoulders, for a more cartoon accurate look. Are his guns the same tooling from Dragstrip? It sure seems like it.

Knock Out looks great! The paintwork on the vehicle mode is the best we’ve ever had on a Knock Out figure. Again, like Bulkhead and Arcee, he’s been “Generations G1-ified,” which I’m all for. I love having iconic breakout characters from later Transformers series retro-fitted to the G1 design philosophy, to create a cohesive collection of a cast of Transformers characters. I know that’s not what everyone was looking for, but I’m loving it (and I can’t wait to see how Armada Starscream has turned out!). The robot mode doesn’t have all the shapes, flourishes, and details of the Prime character model, but he still exudes the same Knock Out personality of a vain and self-obsessed cosmetic surgeon turned field medic.

I’ll save my thoughts on the Voyager, Leader, and Commander reveals for another post, as this one is already a wall of text. :lol:

And here I thought I was going to be able to avoid most of the legacy line and save some money this year. But nooooooo. gotta give me too much awesome and force me to chuck my cash at them.

Honestly for me the best of the line falls to Tarantulus and Jhiaxus. Color me impressed that they didn't do Jhiaxus as a mold mate with armada Starscream again. :APPLAUSE:

Something nobody has brought up yet that was mentioned in the stream is that the new SG figure is actually THREE characters in one!

Not just SG Ultra Magnus and Diaclone Delta Magnus, but also Magna Convoy as well!

Man that order hurt, and I didn't have to pay for anything. 2 Motormaster (on separate orders), 2 Delta Magnus on one order, 1 Wildrider, 1 Jhiaxus and 1 Elita-1. Deluxes generally don't require pre-order, but I may go back for a third just to secure them.

Elita looks really nice. I may replace my 3P version with her. I think this is the first time I've thought an official version of her was done very well.

I may also get Tarantulus just to have. This one looks very nice.

We'll see. In the stream, Mark mentioned how the last Jhiaxus they did back in Thrilling 30 was a "partial" of Armada Starscream, and did so to contrast how this mold is purely Jhiaxus on his own, as if to say that they didn't want to repeat the history of Jhiaxus and Armada Starscream as mold-mates. But it's possible that that was a bit of misdirection on his part to try to throw us off on expecting another Jhiaxus/Starscream shared mold.

Hasbro has given one of the most satisfying streams in a good while, jam packed with toy reveals, a behind the scenes look at the toy design process (even with stating how some parts cannot be spray painted), and some real big surprises. While not revolutionary in general, the Transformers brand has not been in the business of providing alternate heads for characters. But now we have one for Shattered Glass Magnus. While a niche character, it is impressive to have Delta Magnus, Shattered Glass Ultra Magnus and Magna Convoy all rolled into one release.

Below are the official images provided by Hasbro along with links to preorders of figures shown in the stream.

Definitely getting Tarantulas and SG Magnus. Tarantulas looks great! The head on Magnus looks great too, the rest is just okay
I'm still on the fence about Knock Out. He's a compelling character to buy but the figure itself is just ok
Elita 1 is good though a little blocky and bigheaded so I'll pass
Jhiaxus also looks pretty great but I'm not particularly attached to the character so I think I'll pass. Love the head sculpt and bat wings though
Motormaster looks awesome! Very well done! Gonna pass on the stunticons since I'd rather get a Predaking and Bruticus in the future instead.
Wild rider is whatever to me but looks nice in vehicle mode
Blitzwing, eh. I'll stick with my T30 + upgrade kit until a better one comes along

All in all Legacy Wave 2 is looking pretty good! It's a shame they didn't show the Cores, but I wasn't expecting the whole wave to be shown anyway. The Deluxes all look great, Knock Out is a lot better than I thought it would. I thought he was just going to be a straight repaint of Jazz with a new head, but they've actually made some effort to make him look like Knock Out.
Elita is a big improveent over the Netflix toy, and I like how her vehicle mode looks like something straight out of the G1 toyline, has a very 1980's toy look to it. This is basically the G1 Elita toy that never was!
I'm fairly happy with how Tarantulas has turned out, as much as I would've liked a toy based on his Sins of the Wreckers design, that was probably never going to happen. Still, it's nice that they threw in a reference to the Transmetal design with the buzzsaw.
Jhiaxus was a nice surprise, I wasn't expecting him to be an original mould, I was sure they were just going to retool Studio Series 1986 Scourge because his vehicle mode in the comics looks similar, but as he is, he looks pretty good.
Motormaster/Menasor is also very impressive, I probably will end up getting all of the Stunticons. I managed to get a pre-order in for Drag Strip on In Demand Toys yesterday (for those who have Drag Strip, what am I in for? Is he good or nah?)

Posted by Sowndwave76 on April 12th, 2022 @ 1:04pm CDT
Just a few thoughts about the stuff I really care about:

Jihaxus: looks interesting enough to where he may make my "maybe" list.

Motormaster: Incredibly good; considering what this figure is required to do, I'm more than happy with his appearance.
I don't at all care about the "battle station" mode, but man, that's a nice bonus. Especially for anyone who plays with their figures, and/or anyone that may not end up with all 5 Stunticons.
Also, there will be kids out there who have a blast playing with "Menasor" even if they don't have the limb figures.

Menasor: This ended up better than I expected. I agree with Emerje that the upper legs may be a bit thin in comparison to the lower legs. I'm also not a huge fan of the grill/grate sections at the knees, and the blaster is kind of mehhh.
But other than that, from what I can see, for being a regular mainline release figure, this is phenomenal.
And if this really is compatible with CW figures, even though I didn't care much either way, that's also a really smart move by Hastak.
The combining system-- I don't mind at all that the cars end up on the back of the legs, and I'm a big fan of how the arms are assembled... For me, this was the best option for this combiner.
The overall proportions-- at least from what I can see in the photos they look great (CW/UW combiners always looked like their legs were too short without 3P feet to add height).
The head/face sculpt-- fantastic from what I've seen. This is one aspect where CW/UW versions were off imo and was a letdown.

I think the front of the lower legs is a clever solution, and I've made it clear I'm not a fan of greebling and tons of extra, pointless molded detail, however, in this case where the shins are relatively large, flat surfaces, I'm okay with the fact that they didn't go with a completely minimal design.

For me, there's really nothing that I can see as a real negative.
Another positive is I don't see any 3P add-on kits being necessary.

In the middle of typing this I preordered both Wild Rider and Motormaster through Amazon.
Expected delivery date is December 5th, I'd assume (and hope) it will be earlier.

Here's my dilemma now-- I don't really want to get rid of my UW Stunticons, but these new versions are better in both modes...
And I really thought double-dipping was only going to happen with the SS86 Dinobots, but now I'm tempted to have two sets of these Legacy Stunticons.

So here are my thoughts:

Tarantulas: Getting for sure, he is perfect for a mass market deluxe
Elita 1: I don't really have that much connection to the character but she looks great as a Transforming toy, will get.
Knockout: He looks like a good toy, headsculpt is good and I think he works best out of the attempts at merging Prime with the G1 style. But I don't care much for the mold and this isn't the knockout I want, he won't fit with the rest of my prime collection (no Knockout does still).
Wild rider: Glad they adressed how odd the back pack is, doesn't help that it's still a thing. Will get though because I want...
Motormaster: they knocked it out of the park. I have 0 connection to the character but this is some transformers toy. Reminds me of the Ultimate Prime toy from DOTM but done well and not like a freaken nightmare to transform.
Jihaxus: no connection but looks really neat, in both modes. Can anyone let me know which comic he first appeared? I feel like reading some jihaxus G2 comics.
Blitzwing: I'm not gonna spend that much money on a toy I don't care for so no thanks.

Knockout: He looks like a good toy, headsculpt is good and I think he works best out of the attempts at merging Prime with the G1 style. But I don't care much for the mold and this isn't the knockout I want, he won't fit with the rest of my prime collection (no Knockout does still).
Wild rider: Glad they adressed how odd the back pack is, doesn't help that it's still a thing. Will get though because I want...
Motormaster: they knocked it out of the park. I have 0 connection to the character but this is some transformers toy. Reminds me of the Ultimate Prime toy from DOTM but done well and not like a freaken nightmare to transform.
Jihaxus: no connection but looks really neat, in both modes. Can anyone let me know which comic he first appeared? I feel like reading some jihaxus G2 comics.
Blitzwing: I'm not gonna spend that much money on a toy I don't care for so no thanks.


The original US G2 run is only 13 comics, 18 if you count the G.I. Joe arc that introduces Megatron's new body (G.I. Joe 138-142). Jhiaxus is the main villain through the whole 12 issue run, so it's hard to point at one specific issue, specially with such a short run. He literally first shows up in issue 1 of Generation 2.

I've managed to get in pre-orders for all four Deluxes on Hasbro Pulse UK, but it looks like Motormaster has already sold out on there. I don't know if I should look to pre-order him on another site, or try my hand at getting him at brick-and-mortar once wave 2 start hitting shelves. Either way, I do hope the shipping date is eventually moved up from December. Pre-orders for wave 1 were originally set for July but all of the figures are pretty much out now, so surely the same thing should happen with wave 2, right?

Unfortunately, outside of the Hachette reprint series, these haven't seen print in two decades. I'm fortunate to have those Titan editions, but G2 is like the UK-only books in not getting much love from later publishers.

Some cool reveals, was surprised that Elita-1 was a new design and it looks really nice!

Pre-ordered Motormaster, Wild Rider, and Elita-1 from Amazon. Which also allowed me to deduct $20 worth of points from Motormaster's price!

Still waiting on Blitzwing to be listed though.

Wow, these all look absolutely fantastic. Motormaster and Menasor look incredible, Tarantulus and Knock Out are awesome, and Elita-1 and Jhiaxus are pleasant surprises. Hasbro are really knocking the Legacy brand out of the ballpark with these.

Target has two Target Circle deals going on right now. Spend $100 and save $25 and spend $50 and save $10. Both sales are for toys and you can use them multiple times each. Only Motormaster is up right now though. And Bluestreak if you haven't gotten one yet. Road Rage as well. There's a bunch of Marvel Legends preorders up as well in case you needed something to get Motormaster past $100. The Tiny Turbo Changers seem to be out of stock though as those were good to get when you needed to get to a certain price threshold. You can get an extra 5% off if you use a Target RedCard.

The only problem is that it's Target and they have a tendency to cancel preorders even when you answer the email to confirm you want to keep the preorder.

Also, as I don't think anyone noticed with all the shiny new toys to get, Golden Disk Terrorsaur is back up for order on Pulse.

motormaster looks to FINALLY give me a decent menasor to slap next to UW Superion so i'll deffo be picking the stunticons up. i agree with otheres that the knees look a bit wonky but all in all its a decent effort.

i was NOT expecting G2 Jhiaxus at all !

but i love that loon so he's a definete pick too.

i STILL hate the packaging of legacy, but theres figs in there i like.

Breakdown is another unimitigated, unwanted disaster from the "We Think Everything Should Be Geewun-ish" group. We have much better toy technology now so a more show-accurate Breakdown. In fact, to take a cue from another member here....

Thanks, made me check the site and I picked up some restocks so Hasbro managed to get some money out of me after all hahahah (price hiked Tyrano Sentry Ranger and Artillery Roadblock). I'm in no rush to preorder TFs at the mo.

As I expected. Big standalone skeleton to plug cars onto.

The apparent CW combiner pegs however, do make me feel a bit better. Though finding CW stunticons at this point is going to be a bit difficult.

I guess I'll pre-order him when he shows up. Looks like he may end up better than I anticipated. which means I'm not canceling Drastrip now.

Jhiaxus, Elita, and SG Magus are all preordered. Magnus is mainly for that movie ad that showed those alternate colors.

It's amazing to see G1 Elita getting so much love after so long. And, finally, a mold that's 100& hers and not a repaint of anybody else. At last!

Jhiaxus - I thought I was happy with the Armada SS version, but this one blows it out of the water. You can't compare the two. Now do Straxus at Voyager size!

If I see Tarantulus in stores I'll grab him. But he's low priority.

Menasor is still a pass, but I have to admit it's tempting. Maybe my will will break if he's CW compatible. But it's still a lot of money for a guy I already have in a "good enough" way.

Nothing to say about Wild Rider and Blitzwing.

I'll be honest, I laughed when I saw the return of Siege Soundwave. Hopefully this means that that's the mold the SG release will be using so he gets to have an altmode that can actually move.

Tarantulas and Jhiaxus both look perfect, I'll be snagging those for sure when I see them. I thought I was going to see Tarantulas and go "meh, I'll wait for his Transmetal design", but they got me. If Tarantulas looks this good, I cannot WAIT to see Inferno.

Maybe it's because his appearance in the Wreckers stuff gave him time for me to warm up to him already, maybe it's because I'm already on board with the Legacy Prime crew because I have Arcee and she's great, maybe I'm just biased, but Knock Out actually looks great to me. I'm SO glad that he has at least one of his weapons from the show by having the spear, having the tip of it be his Energon weapon makes sooo much sense, and they even went so far as to retool his forearms and thighs despite those not being visible in his reshelled alt mode. Instant get on sight.

Elita...sure is a Minerva pretool, down to the guns, but it kinda works for her. I have zero interest in or attachment to the character, so I'll be passing, but Minerva''s gonna look great. Glad they made the alt mode "head" a fake part, that means the port will already be there to give Minerva a lightbar.

Motormaster looks spectacular...as Motormaster, but they've still lost me on the combined mode, so I'm only gonna grab him if he goes on sale (which probably is unlikely). That base mode for the trailer is straight-up Thunderclash's turret setup though, maybe something will come of that in the future?

Not preordering any of these at Pulse's prices, I didn't have too much difficulty finding what I was looking for from Kingdom so I think I can take my chances with retail for these.

Breakdown...? Am I missing something...?

So just to be clear, Menasor's limbs are not interchangeable? Dragstrip can't be a leg or Wildrider an arm?
