Site sponsor BBTS has put up preorders for TakaraTomy's Legends (the subline, not the size class) LG14 Ultra Magnus! The photo included doesn't show any substantial changes between the Japanese and US Leader-class releases, but this is a preliminary photo and is probably subject to change. Keep reading for a link and the photo!
Answering the lingering question of what TakaraTomy will do with the Combiner Wars Optimus mold, eHobby brings the answer. Tonight they've listed a new exclusive, Grand Scourge using the Optimus mold and the giant sword from Beast Hunters Ultimate Optimus Prime. Grand Scourge is listed at 6500 Yen, and the preorder period runs from now until May 26, with shipping expected in late September. We have many photos, so click through to see those and more details!
Site sponsor BigBadToyStore has put up a preorder page for a new run of Takara's Legends Arcee, due in August! Some stores were reporting having difficulty filling all their preorders in February, so this is definitely a welcome piece of news. The Japanese version of Generations Arcee, LG-10 sports a paint job that puts her much closer to the original G1 character model. Keep reading for a link to the preorder page!
Site sponsor TFSource has opened their preorder listing for Unite Warriors Menasor, featuring all five Stunticons including Wildrider in one convenient boxset. While the solicitation image available right now is small, we can already see some of the changes to the figures. Motormaster is much darker grey over most of the visible body, while Drag Strip is intensely yellow, largely dropping the maroon, and Breakdown and Dead End lose some of their paint ops to get a more simplified look. You can check out the image by clicking the title and find the link to the preorder below as well!
TakaraTomy's Hisashi Yuki continues looking for ways to take up the time previously devoted to Masterpiece Star Saber. Today he's giving us a good look at the Legends Series version of Leader Class Megatron. Verifying what we saw from the low-res image recently, this version of the toy skews much more to the cartoon interpretation of Megatron, streamlining the deco including removing a lot of the accenting red and replacing it with more grey and silver.
