Loopaza on Facebook has shared out the Transformers-relevant pages from this month's Figure King Magazine. We got a preview of it a couple days ago, focused on the Legends Series Kup and Hot Rod. These new high res scans show very well the detail of the figures' new parts and Targetmasters in testshot form. Also included is exclusive Black Convoy, a DOTM Shockwave statue, and the current campaign sword for The Last Knight toys, plus a full page article about the movie. We've got the pages below, plus a crop out of the Legends testshot panel, so click through and check them out!
Dengeki Hobby has posted images and details for LG-EX Car Robots Black Convoy! Best known as Robots In Disguise (2001) Scourge, the inevitable repaint of Titans Return Voyager Optimus Prime is extensively painted and will first be available at Tokyo Toy Show for 5,600 Yen. In an era of 4,000 Yen Legends Deluxes from TakaraTomy, that's not as bad as it could be. Keep reading for the images!
Simon Chan on Facebook shared a couple of pictures of pages from what is probably the new issue of Figure King. As it typically goes, the magazine gives a nice little focus on the newly revealed Legends Series items, repeating the stock photos (including the corrected teal Kup) seen online. A special extra comes with photos showing the new parts for Kup and Hot Rod applied to their Hasbro instances, making it easy to see what's new - and proving Hot Rod's whole new chest is clear plastic. The Targetmasters are also shown as unpainted testshots, making their clear plastic parts obvious as well. Click through to take a look!
Twitter user @spriggan_fuku has posted a photo ("reproduced from somewhere") of the upcoming LG-EX Legends Scourge! Known in Japan as "Black Convoy," Scourge was a repaint of G2's Laser Optimus Prime featured in 2001's Robots In Disguise
series- so it probably won't surprise you to learn that this scourge is a repaint of Titans Return
Wave 3 Voyager Optimus Prime. Keep reading to see!
Dengeki Hobby has posted a new article (in Japanese) about Legends Series Targetmaster Kup! The accompanying photos are largely the ones we saw the other day,
but they did sneak three new ones in there: one of Kup's Robot Mode, one of his Targetmaster partner Recoil's Gun Mode, and one of Kup's Vehicle Mode. Keep reading to see all three!
On Twitter, eHobby has shared a pair of new photos of their exclusive recolor of Classics Voyager Optimus, Magna Convoy. The Diaclone-inspired blue redeco is due to ship toward the end of May, and in addition to the mold's original accessories it will be coming with an instance of Mindwipe's shield claw, and Alha Trion's sword in matching decos. Magna Convoy has been in the waiting for a little while - eHobby's pinned tweet from January is a group shot of several of their exclusives including Magna Convoy, and that wasn't even our first look! You can find all these images in the gallery below. Click through see!
The retailer info leaked very recently for the first post-Trypticon Legends Series releases, and as it happened we got to have a first look at these figures quite a bit sooner than many may have expected. But it's likely that what Hot Rod(imus) and Kup ended up being was probably not quite what most were anticipating. Some of that is for the better, some not so much. But not all of it is entirely obvious either. Keep reading to find out more details for these TakaraTomy toys.
So, when TakaraTomy designated the Legends versions of Titans Return Hot Rod and Kup as Targetmasters, they weren't kidding! Each of them comes with a Targetmaster partner in addition
to their Titan Master/Headmaster, and on top of that Kup seems to sport a new set of arms and new faceplate that work well with his new paintjob to be a better representation of the animated character than the US release. Keep reading to see!
Thanks to BBTS, we have confirmation that Takara will be releasing three new figures into their Transformers Legends line.
First up is LG44 Sharkicon with Sweep. The next two are Target Master figures for LG45 Hot Rodimus and the fan favorite LG46 Kup. Sorry, no images just yet, read on to see more details.
On Facebook, Loopaza has shared a screen image said to list September's Legends Series releases. Seemingly thanks to the push of movie product, Legends have been extremely light so far this year. It looks like things will finally be cycling up starting in September, beginning with two figures that many fans have been eager to see the TakaraTomy take on. In addition to three Legends releases, three of the Movie The Best figures will be shipping again: MB-01 Optimus, MB-03 Megatron, and MB-07 Soundwave. Meanwhile, click through to find out about the new Legends!
Thanks to a few different people on Twitter we've got some nice looks at the just-released Baldigus Unite Warriors set. So far no rumblings seem to have come up toward any further releases, marking Baldigus as possibly being the final iteration of the combiner lines. But as these photos show, if that's the case it is going out on a high note! We've got 40 photos in the gallery at the end of this post showing side by side comparisons, different configurations, "versus" shots, and a couple of things just for fun. Click through for that and the photo credits!
TakaraTomy's April Fool's Day prank seems to be not bothering to region-lock a video for once! In a segment apparently titled "Tateishi Gakuen," a pair of hosts take a look at Legends Dinosaurer, AKA Trypticon! After marveling at the size of the figure and using the transformation hinges in the shoulder to imitate a frilled lizard, they get down to asking a very important question: how many Headmasters/Titan Masters can Trypticon eat in one sitting? Keep reading to see the video and find out the answer!
Loopaza Mega Store has posted new images from Figure King magazine showing off LG-43 Dinosaurer, AKA Trypticon! Primarily, we've got some good news for importers: unless you really
like the idea of the interior of Trypticon's mouth being painted purple, there's virtually no reason to import this one. Keep reading to take a look at a deco that's extremely similar to the US release!
Japanese fan omochasouko02 has shared the result of an incredibly impressive customization project on Twitter. Taking Combiner Wars Rook and adding a lot of remodeling, the result is a fully transformable cab robot that fits in the Super Ginrai body and works with the vehicle mode. Plus the Ginrai Titan Master was modified as well to act as the Godmaster engine. You'll definitely want to check out the mirrored Twitter photos and the customizer's photo blog featuring even more - including the surprising place the Super Ginrai head goes when not in use.

The official TakaraTomy website has posted a new promotional image for Legends Dinosaurer, the Japanese equivalent of Titans Return Titan Class Trypticon! The promo image doesn't feature much in the way of discernible differences from the Hasbro release, though it seems possible that Full-Tilt has a more involved deco than we've seen on him so far. Keep reading to see the image!
