*UPDATED* Reveal the Shield Legends and Battle in Space set

The folks over at TFSource have updated their site with preorder pages for the upcoming Reveal the Shield Legends Class figures: Optimus Prime, Megatron, Starscream, Gold BumblebeeProwl, and Trailcutter.

All of these are based on their G1 iterations, with some renaming of Goldbug and Trailbreaker as "Gold Bumblebee" and "Trailcutter" going on. Of further note is that Starscream's head seems to be unpainted, when his official Hasbro photos show his head to be painted black. Here's hoping the final product will be the same.

Also, as it appears that figures previously believed to be released in the 2010 main line and the Generations line separately will instead be released in the Reveal the Shield line together, the fate of these two existing lines remains to be known.

In addition to the unveiling of the these Legends class figure images, has images of another gem of Reveal the Shield line: a 2-pack called "Battle in Space". This set contains very show-accurately redecoed versions of Classics Rodimus and Universe Cyclonus w/ Nightstick, both decos bearing a resemblance to those of their Henkei! Henkei! counterparts.

They appear to be practically identical to their releases in the Universe foreign market exclusive "Challenge at Cybertron" 3-pack (which also incuded a Universe Galvatron redeco), with the exception being that these figures include new rubsigns over their insignias so as to fit with this line's gimmick.

Two bonus items are to be included in this set. One is the Matrix of Leadership that was originally included in the Japanese-exclusive "New Year Special Convoy" reissue of the G1 Optimus Prime figure, and again with the purple reisue of the G1 Galvatron toy. The other is a short comic story titled "Rodimus vs. Cyclonus" created by IDW specifically for this figure set.

I'll definitly be picking up the Battle in Space pak so i can finally get a Classics Hot Rod and have one of Cyclonus' Armada

Personally i'm not a fan of the Legends Class, but these ones look good with the exception of Starscream. I'd have to say the Prowl looks the best out of all of them.

The legends figures are getting better and better, and I've really come to appreciate them with the advent of the power core combiners because there is a sense of scale that can be created and showcased. That and I've been wanting a good, legends class g1 optimus for a long time.

The battle in space looks good too and Big Bad Toy Store already set up the preorder for this set.

Even though I've already got both Hot Rod, er, Rodimus and Cyclonus, I'm tempted by the battle in space set.
But it's good news for those who don't have a Rodimus yet, yet want to get the Protector armor that Fansproject is working on.

WOW really, they are already changing the line name after a few waves...............
and why have a transformation scale of 0 to 5
why not 1 to 5

My guess for the 0 on the transformation scale is the items that are the automatic conversion like the activators and such. I like the Rodimus/Cyclonus pack. Ill definately get one to have an extra Matrix, I got a metal one with a KO gold G1 prime recently and I like it better than the 3rd party one even tho it doesnt open. Universe/Generations/Reveal the Sheild Kup would be awesome if they make him, hes on the comic, come on Hasbro make Kup!!!!!!
