New Classics Legends Assortment Appearing at Dollar General

Legends-Dollar-General-Wave

… well, perhaps “new” is the wrong word as all four of these have been around before, but never in the same assortment before.

2005 Boards member HoosierDaddy reports finding some new Legends Class toys in his local Dollar General. The four toys in the assortment come on generic backer cards, so are not just old Reveal the Shield stock but a new run. The assortment consists of:

Reveal the Shield Legends Optimus Prime
Reveal the Shield Legends Starscream
Universe 2.0 Legends Megatron
Dark of the Moon Cyberverse Bumblebee (Cyberverse Evolution Set)

The Bumblebee is a true oddity, since he is a single pack version of a previous Toys R Us exclusive multipack. This version also omits the big honkin’ Autobot symbol on his chest that the last release had. The other three seem largely unchanged from their first releases. They run for $6 each.

    The guy was setting a new planogram today and he just put these out. There was only 4 in the case. And the only case he had. Optimus, Starscream, Megatron and bumblebee. Only problem is the Megatron is the Tank version and not the gun version. Otherwise they are the RTS ones on the plain red background blister card with no reference to a subline. Here is a pic of the 4 I grabbed. I don't know the RTS price points but these are $6 each. I'm not a big fan of legends and this was an impulse buy. Dont really think they are worth $6 but I have always liked these and decided to go ahead. If only the Megs was the gun version it would have been much better.

    That Bumblebee's not the RTS version. Interestingly, it looks like the version that came in a DOTM versus pack of Legion Starscream and Bumblebee in both Earth and Cybertronian modes -- it was exclusive to Toys R Us. Funky.

    Yeah, it could be. Just like Megs isn't the RTS version. OP and Starscream appear to be RTS though at least. I know they aren't KO's though.

    Agree. Finding these at Dollar general, I would expect them to be maybe 3 or 4 bucks.

    That's VERY interesting. Even more interesting is the fact that G2 Megatron and Bumblebee weren't even part of the RTS line!!! They were both released in the Universe line years ago.

    It may be that this is a Dollar General exclusive line. I already have OP, Gun Megatron, and Prowl, but I wouldn't mind having Starscream and Bumblebee as well. I love tiny G1 figures.

    Someone give this man a news credit!

    Already have Optimus and Screamer, not sure I want another Legends BB (already have Gold BB/Goldbug).

    I want the Megatron, though.
