Pulsecon brought us our first look at wave 1 of Transformers Legacy, following the IGN preview of Skids and Bulkhead last week. Not all of the toys were shown, but the entire wave was teased during the course of the stream. Hasbro published the stock photos for the toy reveals, which include Transformers Prime Arcee, Kickback, Drag Strip (part 1 of 5 for the new Menasor), and Leader Laser Optimus Prime.
The poster style art shown during the stream hints at the remaining toys in wave 1, with Core Class Hot Rod, Thundercracker, and Iguanus (purple monster on the right) plus the G2 redeco of Core Class Megatron. Also shown is Blaster, who while technically now a Kingdom toy and due in Voyager wave 5, will reship alongside Bulkhead in Legacy wave 1.
Preorders for the revealed toys for this wave are open in the usual places, though Pulse had mostly or entirely sold out within the first hour. The ETA for the preorders currently is around July of next year. It feels unlikely that it will actually be that long before the new line starts, and this is probably just allowing for a safety margin against the current shipping crisis.
Nothing new was revealed for Kingdom or Studio Series, but an additional, Pulse Premium-only stream was subsequently scheduled for 10/27 with its contents not specifically known yet, so maybe some of the absent products will make an appearance there. We’ll just have to wait and find out!
