We're just guessing, but we think Hisashi Yuki probably loves the part of his job where he gets to play with toys early and show them off for TakaraTomy. This time, he's showing off the upcoming limited Legends versions of Armada Megatron and Black Convoy, AKA RID `01's Scourge! While Megatron is quite naturally compared to LG-13, Scourge is paired with fellow recent Car Robots homage Gelshark/Sky-Byte! Keep reading to see!

We have seen several teasers from Machine Boy in the past year, including Omega Supreme, Sky-Lynx and Dai Atlas, but the first of their new line to make it to unpainted plastic test shot is their version of Astrotrain.

Autobase Aichi has brought our attention to TakaraTomy's preorder pages for Black Convoy and Armada Megatron! Interestingly, while Scourge from the original Robots In Disguise is listed with his original name of "Black Convoy," Megatron is listed as "Armada
