Since Mindwipe already showed up in one review as a comparison, peaugh must've felt he deserved his own 7 minutes of prototype fame:

Looks like a cool figure, but I don't like the tattoos. Well, personal preference.

Hmm . . . I've been dubious about Mindwipe and tbh, he looks like he lacks just about everything when he's in robot mode.

And as for RPM, I still don't quite see the point

On the other hand, though, they don't lie to you like Legends do. Plus at least one of the modes is alright...

I found a way to save tons of money on RPMs... I've taken a few of my son's Hot Wheels and painted a face on the bottom. Way cheaper than what the stores want for them.

Plus instant custom character/kitbash potential. "I took a Hot Wheels Porsche, drew a smiley face on the bottom, and now it's ULTIMUS PRIME, the most awesome of all Primes, from my fanfic".

Agree and agree. I have RPM OP and I am totally regret buying it. Lightening McQueen is way much better and a dollar cheaper.

Knowing Hasbro, that means HA Barricade will be sighted next week, and Mudflap two weeks after that.

Jetfire turns into a stick with wings :o

But that is an improvement on Jazz' roof grille. The RotF ones have been better, but that really tells you more about how diabolical the first lot were...

Oh, they really were. Bumblebee's arms, Jazz's grill, Prime's . . . everything.

And the blackbird is a stick with wings

The movie design just can't translate to Legends class toys. With the completely wonderful Universe Legends, there's a big leap in the 'coolness' of the Legends toy. I mean, comparing Universe versions of Wheelie and Jazz with their ROTF/Movie counterparts...

True, some Universe Legends are literally scaled-down deluxes

My one and only one ROTF legend Skids has a really nice Hot Wheel size car mode IMO. Robot mode is lame.

Although not movie accurate, I do really like this color scheme for Mudflap. I like it...and just reminds me how sad I was to have not gotten my hands on an Alternator Swerve.
