Seibertron.com member chuckdawg1999 has posted a review of the recently released Transformers Generations Legends Class Bumblebee with Blazemaster. Check out his review embedded below:

I wasn't sure how I would feel at first about this set as triple changing gimmicks don't work well at this scale, but I was pleasantly surprised. I really enjoy how Blazemaster interacts with Bumblebee who is an excellent figure on its own. If you get the chance do pick the set up.

I reaally hope they redeco this into Hotshot and Jolt.
Also the minicon isn't so much an homage to Jolt as it is to the Micromaster Blazemaster

That, and the targetmaster micromaster guys, are the appeal for me. Scamper needs some buddies.

As for the upcoming Megatron and Starscream mentioned in the review, I think they're separate figures, rather than a set, given the press release was worded ("wave one Optimus Prime and Bumblebee, wave two Megatron and Starscream", basically), which means they'll likely each come with their own as-yet-unnamed little triplechanger targetmaster buddy.

Maybe Starscream will come with Megatron and we will have double Megatron awesomeness?

Maybe, but I doubt it. Hasbro seems to hold back more with Megatrons than they do with Optimuses and Bumblebees.

Awesome!
The Hasbro guys said, and we can kind of see it in pictures, that Metroplexes head transforms into a turret, I think that´s a special sit for Prime, mirroring the events of the FOC videogame.

Wait, they're making equally-scaled Megatron and Starscream (possibly with Targetmaster sidekicks as well) figures? :shock:

Ok I was SOOooooo looking forward to this, but there is ONE thing I got to ask...

The size was mentioned a dozen times, but where is the size comparison to another figure??

Hmmmm, i wanna just go ahead and buy them off Amazon, but I kinda wanted a reference.

They're in between Legion- and Commander-class.

LOL I get the "description," :BANG_HEAD: but as any TF collector knows there are some variation in all the so called class sizes :HEADHURTS:

As I said, we HEARD a size comparison, which was confusing and vague, SOOOOoo why didn't we just bust out a figure we all have and/or familiar with and stand it next to him...Same for the Optimus review.

Don't get me wrong, great reviews overall, made me decided to order them, BUT I would've liked to see a side by side size comparison shown, ESPECIALLY since despite being called Legends class, it sounds like Hasbro seems to be reinventing the wheel a bit lol. 8-}

I'm posting this in both review threads, because it applies to both reviews.

Ok seriously, how can any transfan worth their salt and doing a Targetmaster review, miss the vehicle mode Targetmaster hardpoint? :HEADHURTS:

That´s exactly what I´m talking about. Hasbro calls it FOC Metroplex but it´s obvious he´s G1 Metroplex, so the head thing could be a way to make it more like FOC.
