Slipstream may have come out on top in our recent Twitter poll, but Nightbird was right behind! So today we have a gallery of another of the October 2015 wave of TakaraTomy's Legends Series, featuring LG15 Nightbird Shadow. A very shiny recolor of Generations Arcee with a new head and chest, plus extra weapons. And remember that running change to Arcee the resulted in not being able to hold the original accessories correctly? Nightbird's new weapons account for that with notched handles so they can slide farther in the hands. I had a lot of fun shooting this one, and you can check out all 180 photos in the gallery below!
Or possibly your Titans Return
Perceptor with the working microscope... either way, Hero-X's latest round of previews for their upcoming Generations 2018
book, the latest in the long-running series, isn't exactly big. The samples check in at 240x170 pixels. But we do get some idea of content, with a look at recent and upcoming Legends Series figures, a feature on Transformers: Age of Extinction,
and a "Backstage" section focusing on the design process. Keep reading to see the samples, and be prepared to squint!
The HeroX Twitter account has shared another sample from the exclusive comic story coming in the 2018 edition Transformers Generations
book. In the isolated panel we get to see, Slugslinger and Octane appear to be menacing a bullet train. Those jerks. Hot Rod and Twin Twist are responding to the situation and... that's all we get for now! The book releases later this month, at which point we'll likely get a look at the complete story. For now, you can see the preview image mirrored below. Keep reading!
HeroX on Twitter has shred another art teaser for the upcoming Transformers Generations 2018 book. This image features Overlord menacing Bumblebee in a scene from the book's comic story pages. Generations 2018 is to be published in Japan on November 18th and can be expected to include photos and information about at least this year's Transformers toys - and likely content related to upcoming ones we know of already. At the current time, it's unknown if it will contain an order form for a special exclusive toy. You can find the new art sample below!
The Grand Maximus preorder period is over, and TakaraTomy have announced the results. While the recolor of Titans Return
Fortress Maximus did meet its prerequisite of 2000 preorders and will be made, it couldn't quite reach the goal of 3000 that was necessary for TakaraTomy to manufacture the special Pretender shell for the smaller Headmaster figure. It's a pity, but focus on the positive: for the first time since we got Titan Class figures, there is an exclusive recolor available of one. Keep reading for the announcement from TakaraTomy.
