Toy News: E-Hobby limited edition Convoy Bat Set Images

E-Hobby has revealed a mysterious listing for a "Beast Wars" themed set of "Legends" figures. "Legends" is the Japanese equivalent of "Generations" in Japan and exclusives often pay homage to past lines outside of Generation One. This set is a creative and unique combination of "Titans Return" Mindwipe's body, Infinitus, Apeface's Beast/Vehicle and Nucleon and repaints them all into a homage of the "Beast Wars" two pack that featured a bat-based Optimus Primal and crocodile-based Megatron! Even better?
