A member of the 2005 boards has spotted the next Legends wave in the Phillipines, meaning it's possibly not far off from US stores. Gears is a remold of the recent Swerve; Nemesis Prime, Cliffjumper, and Acid Storm are recolors of Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, and Starscream respectively. This is believed to be the final wave of Legends to be paired with a Mini-Con partner, but this will be compensated for by making future Legends like Powerglide partners themselves
in the upcoming Combiner Wars theme. Keep reading for a mirrored photo!
