Wonder Festival 2017 Winter is this weekend in Japan, and to celebrate TakaraTomy is giving away yet another
run of that clear plastic (old) Legends scale Optimus Prime, which by now has to be the least rare and least exclusive rare exclusive in history. They've also released the tie-in comic for the LG-EX Headmasters set which will debut at Wonderfest and go on to be sold at Cybertron Satellite stores in Japan. The comic introduces a new concept: Double Headmasters.

TFW2005 has posted a message from online retailer Toyshoppe claiming that LG-EX Black Convoy is coming as a Tokyo Toy Show exclusive this June. It's not super-surprising to any of us that Titans Return
Voyager class Optimus Prime would get made into Robots In Disguise Scourge by TakaraTomy, but it is a little surprising that it seems to be happening before the mold is otherwise released in Japan. Keep reading to see the notice!
So, Wonder Festival is on February 19th in Japan, and the LG-EX Headmasters set debuts there. But where else can it be found? Twitter user @robo_z has posted an image of a sign announcing that the Headmasters set - a redeco of US Titan Masters releases colored to match their Legends equivalents - will be available at their Cybertron Satellite stores on the 25th. And if you happen to be prowling around Japan right now, you may be able to get a hold of a coupon like the one in the picture that reduces the price to 2,380 Yen! Keep reading to see the image.
TakaraTomy's TF_pr Twitter account is starting to promote the upcoming release of Leo Prime in the Legends line later this month. The figure is a recolor of Titan Return Alpha Trion based on Lio Convoy, and using the Titan Master mold from Sentinel Prime to give it that Prime-ish look. One photo gives us a look at the toy's packaging, while the other sees Leo Prime borrowing a bit of Starscream's coronation gear, specifically the cape from the Masterpiece. Sadly, it seems that it's simply propped up in place rather than being able to attach for real. Click through to see the mirrored pictures!
