Transformers Legacy - MINERVA!

Transformers Legacy - Deluxe Class - Minerva (Walgreens) - Hasbro 2023

When I first ventured out on my own post-college in the early 2000s, the cities seemed full of cool collectibles shops. I don't know where they all went, but back then I could spend a whole day walking around hopping stores and browsing Japanese imports and vintage collectibles. On one of these excursions I found a small PVC figurine from the Heroes of Cybertron line featuring a female Autobot I had never heard of before: Minerva. I was impressed that she looked so much more like a true Transformer than Arcee (who seemed shaped like a human with robotic details). Minerva had a head and silhouette that seemed way more in line with the overall Transformers aesthetic. Over the years I have learned a lot about her and picked up some great 3rd Party figures, but I've always wanted an official modern figure in the Hasbro line. And years later we get this fantastic Walgreen's exclusive retooling of Elita-1 that fits the bill perfectly. It's an exciting time ot be a Transformers fan. Let's check out Minerva below!

Minerva comes with two guns and a lightbar.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here is Minerva with the recent Elita-1 figure. They share the same body and weapons.

And here are my three Minerva figures together: Heroes of Cybertron PVC, Legacy Hasbro, and Athena from Fans Hobby.

And here is my group of recent Transformers who share this modern body construction. From Left to Right: Road Rocket, Elita-1, Minerva, Flamewar, and Prime Arcee.
