So Shadow Command Megatron is basically a Premium Megatron, just by different name? I don't have the first release, but it looks like the only differences are the red/gold paint apps. Or are there other glowing differences?

Erm... It looks to me as if Shadow Megs is almost black in base colour (very very dark metallic green?). That's quite a big difference. And the red paint apps have replaced a number of the gold, silver and copper apps on the original release. So he's not particularly movie accurate...

A lot of the legends class this time round look really nice
if they can put every character in that class, that'll suit my budget nicely

New head for Ironhide. So close to what they really need to fix (his shoulders), but no cigar! :\

Leader Starscream looks pretty awesome from initial pics. I can feel my willpower just eroding away . . . :eek:

Starscream makes me look at my Voyager class version with a less happy face then ten minutes ago. On the other hand, Scattorshot is like Brawn: They're both soo mine!!!

Wow, isn't that a similar scheme to one of those 'negative' Car Robots Spychangers? Wars, was it? Not the store exclusives, the next set after that... Hopefully they'll bring that across to the Deluxe mould at some point, neat scheme.

Starscream is dreamy.... buuuut those arms don't look like they come off :(

Wheelie looks good. I care not a jot for anything else...

So the leader Starscream has both the missile launcher thing AND hands? Color me impressed :)

Looks at his leader Prime and the Starscream pics::) :up:
Looks at his Jetfire and Megatron: god dammit.:wall:

I guess Jetfire's combination gimmick is his excuse(though I haven't bothered with combining), but the bloom is off the rose, Megatron.
*I hadn't seen the movie until I got the DVD today, and was curious to see if I had positioned Jetfire's engines correctly, just to see that the bastard didn't even have them that way at all.

I guess I'll be getting Leader Starscream. The Voyager Starscream Megatron can beat senselessly, the Leader Starscream Prime can beat senselessly!;)

Don't like Scattorshot's head and his guns in vehicle mode make him look like he's trying to compensate for something.
The Leader class Starscream could be rather good.
And I may consider Recon Ironhide.
Destruction is my specialty

Because the world doesn't have enough Camshafts... I'm betting somewhere in China there's a warehouse the size of a football stadium packed with the guy...
