Legends Series LG58 Clonebots, LG59 Blitzwing, LG60 Overlord - In-Hand Images Of TakaraTomy Plus Titans Return Comparison
RAC - Thursday, January 25, 2018


Twitter user @kinoko51 has posted in-hand images of their just-purchased round of January's Legends releases from TakaraTomy! In addition to the Clonebots Fastlane/Fastclash and Cloudraker and Blitzwing, there's a side-by-side comparison of the US and Japan releases of Overlord. Keep reading to see! Blitzwing shares a mold with the US Titans Return Voyager Class Megatron, while Overlord shares one with Titans Return Leader Class Sky Shadow, perhaps better known in Japan as Black Shadow. The Clonebots were split up in their US availability between a $17 Walgreens two-pack with a Decepticon Clone and a $100 ToysRUs-exclusive boxset - so this set represents the easiest way forward for those who want both.

With this Japan sighting of this month's Legends, we've updated the Wave Tracker accordingly! In the case of Legends figures and other Japanese market releases, the Tracker will reach 100% once non-Japanese retailers begin shipping the toys.

Autobase Aichi has published a synopsis of the Transformers news in this month's issue of Hyper Hobby, one of the many hobby magazines published monthly in Japan. While the mechanical translation is typically shaky, it seems as though the Legends series, with its higher standards of deco, will be continuing alongside the Japanese release of Power of the Primes! But there is still a catch - keep reading for details.
Loopaza Mega Store has posted images of the packed-in paperwork for LG-60 Legends Series Overlord! The figure's bio card and (mercifully Safe For Work) comic are on display, showing off the new tooling for the figure's chest and Headmaster robots as well as a new mode created for the comic. ...but, kind of an expensive one. Keep reading for details!
TakaraTomy has released via their official Transformers PR Twitter account a set of photos showing off the small sheet of optional stickers that will be packed in with the upcoming LG63 G2 Megatron. The sheet leans in to the roots of the deco, including a MEGATRON RULES sticker for the chest emulating a major piece of the Hero Megatron toy's factory applied stickering, as well as the option of a G2 Decepticon symbol, or Predacon logos, speculated to indicate that the Legends pack-in comics may be assigning the identity of Predacon Megatron to this toy's Headmaster. We've mirrored the photos, and you can find them below.
Fresh off the forums, chuckdawg1999 has brought us a video review for the just-released legends series Slugslinger from TakaraTomy. LG55 features the Targetmaster Caliburst and sports a modified deco from the earlier Hasbro release. Chuck shows off both the Titans Return and Legends versions side by side to highlight the points of difference between them, though outside the choice of dedicated weapon versus Targetmaster, the only real changes come down to colors. You can watch the review right now, embedded just below in the full post.
Today we're catching up to November's Transformers Legends releases in order to clear the way for the just-released December assortment. Our newest gallery is LG51 Targetmaster Doublecross, which is in fact just a clever(?) way of producing Haywire for the purpose of making your pre-existing Legends-series Blurr complete. Alas, poor Scourge saw no such consideration. But Doublecross has more to offer than just Targetmaster delivery - seen side by side with the Hasbro version, it offers a distinct deco that may suit some better than Twinferno. And of course it has the fully painted White Leo Beastformer (Battlebeast) Headmaster! We've got 200 high quality photos for you, click here to view the gallery!
