UPDATED: First Look At Legends Series LG Bumblebee & Spike, Slugslinger, Perceptor, And Octone
ExVee - Monday, July 10, 2017

Japanese collector news site figsoku appears to have caught some Amazon Japan listings that went live a little early. From them we have our first looks at the December assortment of TakaraTomy's Legends series, though the listing pages themselves on Amazon now result in 404 errors. It looks like the Spike with Bumblebee is another new Titan Master body which does resemble the exosuit seen in Transformers: The Movie, with what looks like Hasbro's Rebirth-style Cerebros face on the back - or is it? Keep reading for more info on the assortment!

Autobase Aichi managed to dig up an additional image of LG Bumblebee, showing it and Spike in their alternate modes. And while indeed Spike features a Headmaster face that looks like Rebirth Cerebros's a new sculpt?! The Hasbro version is inset over the image for comparison, and while both obviously are based on the same source design, the exact details of them differ noticeably upon examination. The question now is, with a full new Titan Master mold purpose-designed to resemble the exosuits worn by Spike and Daniel, is an alternate face part of the tooling to permit a second use as Daniel later?

Original article text follows.

• Slugslinger can be seen in robot mode, carrying a Targetmaster, as advertised, but there's not a while lot more to gain from just this robot image.

• Octone looks just distinct enough from the Hasbro release, though mostly in the absence of stickers for added detail. The photo we have shows an extra Titan Master in the gun seat. Close scrutiny of the pixels makes it look like the Titan Master is made of clear plastic, and we can see just enough of its colors to identify it as a Titan Master/Headmaster Starscream's Ghost. Whether this indicates a Seeker-style Titan Master face exists somewhere or has been created for this purpose, or another existing face is being repurposed is unknown.

• Finally, the mystery of what partner vehicle/drone Perceptor will carry is solved: He's getting the Ramhorn rhino/tank, allowing our devoted scientist to haul around a giant missile battery - for science. You can pre-order these now at

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!
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!
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.
