Transformers Legacy United product reveals from Takara TOMY are now on Amazon Japan. If a lot of these look familiar, it is because they were rolled out recently at Hasbro Pulse Con 202. Read on to see new official Legacy United images coming to Japan in April 2024 for the following:
• TL-59 Boulder Crash - 1,800yen
• TL-60 Megatron (Energon Universe) - 1,800yen
• TL-61 Tasmania Kid - 1,800yen
• TL-62 Thundertron - 5,300yen
• TL-63 Optimus Prime (Animated) - 5,300yen
• TL-64 Tigerhawk - 7,500yen
Wow. Just wow.
Energon Megatron looks perfect. Damn does he look good and I can't wait to get him and Galvatron. I really hope they make a bigger one at some point. I have this whole idea linking the mold to Thunderwing and several other crazy ideas so I'm a bit extra hyped for Energon Megs.
Snarl looks good. I don't think it's a retool of Rattrap. I rewatched it and they didn't mention it having been a partial either. I mean it looks like it could be since they normally have a very similar transformation and parts layout but there's one major thing being the beast head feet. That's throwing me off. Even the little things like the thighs look different.
Bouldercrash and Magneous aren't really doing it for me though. They're "okay" and that's what I rated them as but it's a both a bit of a let down and better than I was expecting. I'm glad that they're not just rocks for alt modes but the vehicles seem just as out of place. I think just maybe random beast like shapes would've been better. More like the Fossilizers or what the cancelled Energon Monsters were possibly going to be. They even say that they're sparkless and not like Cybertronians in any way and that they're more creatures instead. And I still hate the fact that the Junkions have integrated transformations instead of the full partforming the others had since it limits what can be done with them. The torsos on the Junkions just can't combine with anything anymore and it sucks. I don't even bother with that feature of the Junkions but I made and still make giant crazy things with all my Weaponizers, Fossilizers and Modulators though. So I hope they at least learned from the "failure" of the Junkions and made these Rock Lords more combinable. And not just combinable in a single way like the Junkions and Junkasaurus. I mean it seems that that might be the case though as Bouldercrash is going to turn into a weapon. That tells me there's one fully intended way to combine them all and that maybe they won't work quite like the Weaponizers and so on. I'll get them but I don't think I'll be getting multiples of each.
Bumblebee I already typed about previously. It looks good. Too much hate. It's not supposed to be 100% anything but a weird mix of two to three different aesthetics. Which it does.
Chase being a new mold is surprising. And well, I think we know what's being turned into Lockdown now. Axlegrease was a red herring it seems. The capture claw on the arm reminded me so much of Ratchet's weapon that Lockdown stole.
Windblade looks really good. I have every Windblade toy and this one looks good. She seems like she's very solidly build but isn't full of gimmicks. I just wish they'd make her a bit bigger overall so that they can finally do something about getting rid of or better integrating her nose cone and cockpit area and making it so that she doesn't just have arms on the sides of the jet. I can think of a few ways to "fix" all of that.
Thundertron is spectacular. He looks like a straight upgrade to his original toy. I'm so glad that he's not some random partial with Lio Convoy or even Silverbolt.
Optimus I've already typed about before. Still looks great. Too much hate again.
Tigerhawk looks phenomenal. They managed to pull that off as a leader and that's incredible. I'm just not a fan of the brownish color. I get that they wanted to incorporate some Airazor elements but they look out of place. Oh and I don't see his "helmet" for beast mode.
Go away Laser Prime. I wonder when they're doing Magnus. Or a proper SG Magnus. I'll even take a SG Prime based on the second toy of him.
Hotshot and Jolt I've already typed about as well.
The poster art is confusing me though. There's Magmatron and Tidal Wave. We see Tidal Wave combined with Megatron. So that would mean that Tidal Wave is the commander class right? But that would make Magmatron the titan? What? That can't be right. So is Tidal Wave the titan and Magmatron the commander? Magmatron as the commander makes sense but so does a combinable Tidal Wave. I don't want a titan Tidal Wave. I don't want titans in general honestly. Not as big as they're making them. I'd rather have them be smaller but sturdier and with all their little minions as well as have no cost cutting measures. Huge bots are cool but they're never going to be in scale anyway so might as make them more "playable" instead. Cybertron Metroplex being the exception as he can be completely in scale as well as still be playable. It's just that he didn't come with his Minicon. I'm really hoping that Cybertron Menasor is made as a titan soon as he'd be perfect as he's shorter than Metroplex and doesn't have anything like Sparkdrinker so he could fulfill everything I'd want out of the titan class. Only time will tell.
