Upcoming TakaraTomy Products? Legends LG64 Seaspray with Lione, LG65 Twin Twist, LG66 Topspin, Encore God Fire Convoy
RAC - Monday, October 02, 2017


Singapore fangroup Planet Iacon has posted to Facebook that March 2018's TakaraTomy Transformers offerings will include a surprise. In addition to the latest round of Legends Series products, TakaraTomy is also producing the first new Encore figure since 2013: God Fire Convoy! We don't know what Planet Iacon's sources are for this info, but they've been pretty good in the past. But for now, keep reading as you take these listings with a grain of salt.
Upcoming Takara Tomy TRANSFORMERS products:

- Transformers Encore Series God Fire Convoy
- LG64 Seaspray and Rione
- LG65 Target master Twin Twist
- LG66 Target Master Top Spin

Expected release in March 2018


Rione, AKA Lione, is the name for the Japanese G1 Headmaster that was released here as Titan Master Sawback.

Also, the fact that it's listed as "God Fire Convoy" means that it will be the combining pair of Robots In Disguise 2001's Optimus Prime and Ultra Magnus, AKA Fire Convoy and God Magnus!

The Encore edition of Car Robots Fire Convoy and God Magnus are going to feature updated, and supposedly expanded sound chips featuring a lot of new dialogue and sound effects. To highlight this, TakaraTomy has posted three samples taken from what's going to be put on Fire Convoy's sound chip. Those who've been around long enough to have an original Fire Convoy will recognize that each of the phrases previewed here are brand new to the toy. Click through for a link to the TakaraTomy official site page, and a list of the phrases!
Site sponsor TFSource has posted images of Encore God Fire Convoy! While it's extremely similar to the original release, the new photos distinguish this release with their inclusion of a translucent plastic-bladed Matrix Blade/God Fire Sword as well as a lack of vacuum-metalized parts on Optimus Prime's normal-mode chest. Which is not $280's worth of upgrades to RAC, personally, but does indeed look better to him, and distinguishes this release from the original. Keep reading to see!
Our earlier report indicated that an Encore release of God Fire Convoy (the combined form of Fire Convoy and God Magnus from Car Robots) was solicited for March of 2018. We treated it with due skepticism, but it looks like through a post on Loopaza's Facebook page it's for real. And we have a price tag to go with it: 30,000 Yen. It's a lot of toy in that package, especially with the expectation that the electronics will be kept intact. For reference, when originally released in 2000, Fire Convoy and God Magnus each retailed for 4,980 Yen. Hopefully there will be a giant sword in that Encore packaging smooth the price over a bit!
TakaraTomy has posted a sample image for the package art for Unite Warriors Ruination! "Evil Destronger Combiner Combatron Baldigus," is due in late March and isn't just a recolor of Unite Warriors Bruticus to match his Robots In Disguise recolor, no. TakaraTomy is also adding a suite of combining weapons as well as US Combiner Wars Computron's hands and feet to the mix. Keep reading to see the package art!
This week on QTransformers II: Cliffjumper explains the post-Beast Wars Transformers continuity to Lockdown, including Car Robots, Micron Legend, Super Link, and Galaxy Force! We have to presume that the title is referring to their failure to be sequels to G1, since the phrase "parallel world" comes up at least once. Keep reading to watch the Japanese-language, dialogue-intensive comedy series!
