TakaraTomy Legends Series Reissues Canceled Due To Lack of Orders
ExVee - Thursday, August 10, 2017


A little while back, TakaraTomy polled for what Legends Series toys respondents in Japan would be interested in having another shot at. From those results, several preorders went up on TakaraTomy Mall, with the condition that they could be canceled if enough orders weren't received. It seems that has in fact been the case, with Autobase Aichi now reporting a number of those reissues will no longer be happening. Keep reading to find out which ones didn't make the cut!

According to Autobase Aichi, the reissues of LG07 Jetfire, LG13 Megatron, LG31 Fortress Maximus, and LG32 Chromedome have been canceled. That still leaves several that are evidently moving forward, including Arcee which will be having at least its third run, Windblade, Ultra Magnus, and from the more recent part of the line, Blurr, Scourge, and Wheelie, which were all high demand items internationally, and seemingly hold enough interest still within Japan to justify the rerelease run to happen.

Since we heard about TakaraTomy's "Power of Prime" line, we've been speculating that the reduced prices (relative to Legends series) indicate straight repacks of the US toys. While nothing is 100% certain until we have them in hand... those sure are US toys in the Dengeki Hobby photo gallery we've mirrored here. In particular, Jazz's markings are all 100% identical to the US release in these photos - even if these are entirely the US-release toys, whether the promised running change will apply to the TakaraTomy release is currently unknown. Good photos though - keep reading to see more!
The ever reliable Tagoal has posted new in-hand images of LG-EX God Ginrai! The figure is a re-release of the individual TakaraTomy Godbomber and Super Ginrai, and... basically, what you get for this fancy boxset is clear windows on Ginrai, chrome on Godbomber, and two new Headmasters. Is that worth buying this set twice? Probably not, but we think it'll probably come down to how much you like Minerva and Cab. Keep reading!
We've reported previously on the retool of Cerebros and Emissary - or if you prefer, Fortress - to feature likenesses of the "Downtown" comedy duo. Tonight we have an official page for the mailaway exclusive item, complete with clearer stock images of the larger figure and its Titan Master/Headmasters, showing both of the faces as well as the face that will adorn whatever Fortress or Grand Maximus one may eventually dock this item to. We're still waiting to find out what exactly might go on the sound chip for this edition. Click through to see the photos.
The opening alone is worth the price of admission. TakaraTomy has posted a new 100-second ad for their Street Fighter II x Transformers toys to YouTube, and it's a nice little thing with a great adaptation of the Super Street Fighter II Turbo intro. Keep reading to have a look!
Singapore fangroup Planet Iacon broke the news - and site sponsor BigBadToyStore has just confirmed - that TakaraTomy's version of Power of the Primes begins in May! Titled very similarly as Power of Prime, the figures listed are being released in a format seemingly identical to their US releases. But, what's interesting is what's not listed from Wave 1.
