3 or 4? I already have 5-6 imaginary jobs.

It'll be interesting how they do warpath and cosmos. If cosmos gets done well, i'll buy it. If it's done badly, it could end up as bad as MY G1 Cosmos. And that one's broken. I'd still buy it. I want Hound as well, but i think the Ravage figure will be the real selling point for me.

Oh yeah. This new list makes my hunting list so much easier. Legends class... Is that LOC or Scouts? As a Scout-sized Cosmos, Warpath and Wheelie will me much more cuter. Minibots forever!

Actually, the Universe figures I am interested in are Galvatron, Powerglide, Acid Storm, Ironhide, Silverstreak, Sideswipe, Hound w/Ravage, Cyclonus and the legends class. Just a small list...

Anyway, here in where I live, Sunstreaker, ONslaught, Prowl and 'Octanker' haven't even came out yet. But Animated Wave 4 have started appearing, so....

That's LOC.

At least you got ANI wave 4. Spare a thought for people who haven't even seen anything past ANI wave 1.

"LOC" is short for "Legends of Cybertron", which was actually just the name for the Legends-sized toys of the Cybertron characters. Subsequent lines called the assortment "Legends Class", but for some reason the short handle "LOC" really stuck with the fandom.

New listings at Wal*Mart's public website:

Animated Shadow Blade Megatron (seen at SDCC)
Animated Roadbuster Ultra Magnus (huh? Repaint?)

Animated Cyber Speed Bumblebee (seen, known, listed at Hasbro.com)
Animated Street Patrol Bumblebee (what?!?)

Universe Voyager Overload (Huh?)
Universe Vector Prime (WAH?)
Universe Leo Prime (They're not going to repaint the awful Cybertron Voyager Leobreaker mold, are they?)

I hope they do. A Prime-colored Leobreaker would look great linked up to Cyb. Prime.

"Leo Prime" was previously the name of a Classics repaint of Legends of Cybertron Leobreaker as Beast Wars II Lio Convoy.

And the Voyager Class Leobreaker mold sucks. Badly. No paint job in the world can fix that.

If you're willing to shell out 45.99 AUD for the piece of cr*p in the first place. I dunno bout you, but i'd rather burn the d*mn cash.

Don't get why Road Buster is getting another release, repaint or not. Even if it oesn't look like him, it still bears the same name, and it all boils down to 'Animated and Universe cannot (except Ratchet) have teh same chars.)

I'm guessing Speed Patrol BB, is PatrolBB, with sh*t barcode scanning and such.

VP? WTF!

Overload better not be ARM. Version, or i'll be really pissed.

I want blurr and possibly Arcee. Depends on how G1-esque, the car is.
*facepalm*

I meant that Waspinator should be a new mold, transforming into a wasp, rather than a BB repaint.

ROADBUSTER ULTRA MAGNUS. Leader Class. It's likely a repaint of Ultra Magnus. Not a character named "Roadbuster".

He's listed for $19.99, so I would guess he's a repaint of Power Bots Cyber Speed Bumblebee. Not the Deluxe.

I do hope Starscream is a new mold based on his Armada incarnation. I do not own one, but I like Armada Starscream enough to buy all 4 Armada Seekers (Starscream, TC, Skywarp, and Ramjet).

G1 Megs? Stand 20 feet from it, and realize that you don't KNOW right off that it's a toy, and yes - you can confuse it as such. Now, the number of actual cases of this (or any other toy gun) really being an issue can be counted on one hand, but nothing deters the anti-gun lobby for long.
