Transformers Tuesday - The official Transformers SNS has posted two new reveals giving us our first look at the Transformers Legacy Iguanus and Skywarp core class wave 1 figure. The much-anticipated reveal of Iguanus is here with a neat little remake of the original Pretender character. As expected, there would be redecos of core Starscream as the other Seekers and here is the first with Skywarp.

Gotta love when the stock photos are slightly mistransformed. It looks like Iguanus' knees should tab into the tail for motorcycle mode to help solidify the back end. As much as I wanted BW Iguanus, this is everything I expected when it was leaked that it was G1 Iguanus and I love it. Iguanus was one of my favorite Pretenders back in the day for some reason. I think I'm going to miss having the wheels as a "weapon" though but I guess Arcee has that covered. Just kind of wish the tail had a hinge or something. He looks loaded with articulation though. Ball jointed shoulders, elbows, hips, knees and ankles as well as sockets in the feet to allow ankle pivots as part of the transformation and a waist swivel also due to transformation. Maybe the head can move as well. The backpack looks to clean up pretty nice too. A very well designed little figure.

Odd that Skywarp doesn't also come with the Null Rays as it's a very Hasbro thing to have redecos come with the older weapons with the new ones. I guess the eventual flood of black Null Rays on Ebay will actually have a purpose unlike the flood of grey ones currently. Like what is actually wrong with the ones that come with Starscream that new ones needed to be designed? 

Those weapons are odd though. They look like they should combine into something but these two don't seem to be able to combine with each other in any meaningful way. One looks like a sword guard and the other looks like like the start of a trident. Maybe wave 2 will have two more pieces that are similar that will combine with these two. Then wave 3 will have a third piece for each. So the one that comes with Iguanus would need a hilt and blade. The one that comes with Skywarp would need the pole and the center prong.

Am I the only one who sees iganus and thinks "hmmmmmmmm, that would make a workable Cy-Kill!"???

I'd rather see Studio Series Wreck Gar be reworked into Cy-Kill but I'll take both.

Iguanus is awesome. I will be getting this and all other Pretenders. When I heard Legacy was doing Pretenders I was hoping for a deluxe or voyager figure with a updated shell design. But that's fine. This works and easier on the budget. 

Skywarp just as amazing as Starscream so nothing new there but do not like they took his null rays guns. I don't want t have to purchase 3rd party weapon pack for more $$$ when Hasbro should have just added it.

I'd love a Cy-Kill. He had a small cameo in recent IDW issue.

    • @Joe Velez I love that you ALWAYS question authority. Mwhahaha! Seems to me, Hasbro is copying the Marvel Universe. Pretty much everything Transformers is a Generations series now. Authentics, Cyberverse, Legacy, Masterpiece, and Studio series are all reissuing past characters.
    • No. There's no way. This is pretty much someone's wish fulfillment list. There has to be another April Fool's Day that happens every June 24th that I'm just not aware of. I don't believe this list one bit. Especially since Legacy is supposed to be a one and done. It's a supposedly a filler line to finish off WFC and begin the next series/trilogy. Crasher? Nope. Hasbro is too scared to use the name...or are they? Road Ranger had his name didn't he? I hope it's not from either Mirage mold though and is instead from Dragstrip. It would be so easy to retool that into a Crasher that even has the front of the vehicle point out back behind her. I still don't see this happening though. Shadow Striker? Most likely Cyberverse and not Universe/OTFCC because then we'd also need Roulette. The Cyberverse character is now the G1 version so it makes the most sense. I don't see it happening. Never mind, it will be ROTF Shadow Striker lol. An upscaled SS86 Wheelie done in black and red. Just what everyone wanted right? Well, I want a black and red SS86 Wheelie and I haven't even seen him yet. Hot Rod? What we would all want is a retool of Override as IDW Hot Rod like the MMC figures but what we'll get is a redeco of SS86 Hot Rod instead. We'll get a redeco of SS86 Hot Rod eventually. It's only a matter of time with that one. What's next to add to that list, a retool of Cosmos or even Origin Bumblebee as Path Finder? Why not both? Blue Cosmos (no not the Blue Cosmos from Gundam) and grey Bumblebee. Maybe Smallfoot as a retool of an upcoming RID 2015 Strongarm too? Core Soundblaster? No shit. There's no way they're going to not do that eventually. Core class Dinobots? No way. I'd love it but no way. Needlenose? The one who's always on the votes but never wins? Hasbro is just toying with us with this one. There's no way they're going to make one now. They want to see the fans cry about it too much now. And he's downgraded from voyage to deluxe to pour more salt on the wounds. Hot Shot? Armada Hot Shot? There's nothing saying it's going to be Armada Hot Shot. When it's been an alternate universe character they always put that in its name. This could be Armada HS, Energon HS, Cybertron HS, RID 2001 HS, Animated HS. So which one is it? It's none of them because it's not happening. Deluxe Junkions with a number denoting future retools and redecos? What so a reissue of the RTS mold? The CW mold? They already made a voyager Junkion from Wreck Gar. I don't see why they'd need to do a deluxe at this point. Maybe for Detritus or Nancy? It just doesn't make sense. Tarn? Yeah no. It just doesn't seem like Hasbro want's to touch the DJD. Although we are getting a nice Jhiaxus though. But no. Just no. Leo Prime? Again, this whole list just sounds like wish fulfillment. There's no way. And then what? We get white, black and purple redecos? Thundertron, Alpha Trizer and GO Prime? Hasbro don't make such deep cuts for redecos and retools. Granted they've started to go pretty deep lately but not Leo Prime redeco deep. Prime Skyquake..............actually, I don't see why not with this one. But they'll probably use either Seeker mold or Jhiaxus for it though. Don't expect the beefcake he was. Although I would like him, Dreadwing and Megaplex who don't break. Not that mine are broken...that I know of... Oh wait. I brushed over the fact that it says leader and not voyager. No way it's happening now. I just completely assumed it was voyager as it made the most sense. For a leader Skyquake it would need to be Euro G1 for Hasbro to most likely do it, not Prime. Armada Megatron? I don't see why not with him either. New mold and all. This one I believe fully. Galvatron and Megazarak redecos too this time. Most of these figures are just too on point for what fans what for Hasbro to do them.  I would love to be wrong though. Well, other than Soundblaster as that's bound to happen sooner rather than later. I really hope I'm wrong. I want some of these so much. Watch I'm wrong on everything but that means no Armada Megatron as I think that one is real.
    • Transformers Velocitron is not even shipping yet, and JTPrime17 flies in with newly leaked listings offering up many spoilers for what is coming our way in 2023. First off, IF you liked what's going on with Velocitron there is Wave 2 coming too. Next, Legacy has lots more in store next year with some new nods to Cybertron, Prime, G1, and Aw yeah, Armada fans will be getting their fix with at least one leader exposed.
