aWe are United to see some new toys today!
Today at Pulsecon 2023, we now know the full slate of wave 1 of Transformers Legacy: United! Let’s break it down:
We have Core classes here, Energon Megatron, back from the Unicron wormhole. Beast Wars II Tasmania Kid, the Japanese Cheetor. And the introduced character of the newly revealed Armorizers, Infernac Universe Boulderclash! Inhumanoids, babey! At least, that’s what is implied. Infernac is a pocket realm from the planet meltar, but Mark Maher say these creatures are the rock Daira creatures from the Japanese Headmaster series. What a strange mishmash, but interesting to see. It’s not a full on rock, but who wouldn’t want to rock on a rock motor biked.
Now we have Deluxes. We know about Animated Bumblebee getting this treatment (no leaks mentioned). We got Rescue Bots rep with Chase, the officer who doesn’t know the meaning of the word “rule-breaking”. A new Windblade, based on Cyberverse, after years of not getting a decently articulated version of her. Then, we have the new Armorizer character, Infernac Universe Magneous. His gimmick is he can make a battery ram from his pieces. Talk about coming in hot (he’s made of Volcanic ash).
Voyagers, we know of one before. Animated Optimus Prime. Ready to protect and chop off Sentinel’s head for being such a jerk. Today, we now got Thundertron, the Star Seeker Space Pirate, who arrives to claim your booty (meaning treasure, mind you). Mark says he might be a little Zoid inspired, which gives us another Takara wrinkle in this version.
Leaders, we got one big doozy. A newly designed figure of Tigerhawk, the Vok fusion of Tigatron and Airazor! If you told me that this was the OG toy, I believe you. He looks like he never left the 90s in terms of engineering. Of course, we have a repacked Laser Prime, which is a little disappointing, but hey, if you didn’t get him before, you will have the chance now.
