Motto: "It's not done right if it's not done well."
Weapon: Saber Blade
Synopses for all but the Broadside comic:

Sixshot:
In the G1 World, former Decepticon ninja staff officer Sixshot surrenders to the Autobots to be imprisoned at the Planet Micro Satellite Penitentiary. Recognizing him as a member of the dangerous Six Clan, the personnel neutralize his six-changing ability by removing his head and converting it into a micro-sized robot mode, unaware that Sixshot has already been ostracized from the ninja clan by joining the war, going against their rules to stay secret. This is all according to Sixshot's plan, however, as he's working with Daniel Witwicky to infiltrate the prison and break out Star Saber, unjustly imprisoned by the compromised Galactic Peace Alliance. The Sixshot body held within the prison suddenly falls to pieces as Daniel pilots his real body, already modified into a transtector, out from the lava underneath the facility. Escaping into space with Sixshot and Star Saber, he explains that they'll hide from the Alliance in the Legends World.

On arrival, Daniel seeks out Chromedome, who agrees to shelter him and Star Saber but refuses to help Sixshot, murderer of his friends Abel and Jack. Sixshot turns to leave, but Chromedome changes his mind and lets him stay... in exchange for working as his art assistant, as Chromedome has quit his job to become a full-time manga artist. Sixshot doesn't fully understand the "moe" artstyle he helps ink, but reflects that it's good that Chromedome has found a way to reach out to people's hearts, seeing as he himself is only good at killing. He also notes a certain resemblance between Chromedome's original character and Arcee, causing the Autobot to grow flustered while the others tease him about his old crush. Suddenly, Ultra Magnus arrives on their doorstep, having been tasked by the Galactic Peace Alliance with capturing the fugitives. Not wanting to cause any trouble for his benefactor, Sixshot decides to act like he's been holding Chromedome hostage and confront Magnus while Daniel and Star Saber escape.

Ultra Magnus is happy for a rematch with his killer, positive that he won't lose with power of Alpha Trion, Matrix, on his side. Sixshot merges with his transtector and attacks the Autobot using several of his modes, intending to finish him off with his seventh Wingwolf mode once again, but this time Ultra Magnus is able to catch him out of the air and throw him to the ground. They both transform into their car modes and ram each other head on, and when the dust from the collision settles, Sixshot stands victorious... until he's suddenly impaled from behind by Nightbird, agent of the Six Clan, as punishment for defying them. Daniel rushes out to his friend, but Sixshot accepts his death, considering it just deserts for his evil deeds, and tells Daniel to treasure his life before succumbing to his injuries and exploding.

But that is not the end: a bandage-clad but alive Sixshot later purchases the magazine in which Chromedome's manga has been published and, treasuring the moment of peace he experienced working on it, resolves to repay him. Having learned that the dead can be resurrected in the Legends World, he seeks out Giga for help, wanting to bring back the friends of Chromedome he killed. Giga explains that the power to do so, the spirit energy used by the Zamojin, is none other than Shinchōkon—"God Super Soul"—and questions if Sixshot has the resolve needed to control it.

Doublecross:
The Legends World is visited by White Leo, leader of the Beastformers, exiled from his homeworld of Beast after being defeated by his enemies, the Laser Beasts. He uses six mystical jewels to transform Neo Akihabara City into a jungle and recruit the unwilling local beasts to fight alongside him, granting them Beastformer armor, though the local humans instead end up as naked as animals (and are offended when White Leo calls them "ape-type beasts"). Unfortunately, White Leo finds that he's been followed by his nemesis Tigerburn, Emperor of the Laser Beasts, who explains that the six jewels contain the crystallized power of the Three Wise Ones and that he wants his hands on them. Tigerburn is seated atop Doublecross, to the surprise of his old buddy Repugnus, and White Leo explains that the Monsterbot has been Tigerburn's puppet ever since the Laser Beasts cut his head off, removing his sense of self. Furthermore, Tigerburn reveals that he's modified his body to become completely robotic, used Legends technology to become a Headmaster in order to combine with Doublecross's body, and acquired the most powerful Laser Beast weapon, the Haywire Laser.

White Leo can do nothing but flee from the powered-up Tigerburn, but his younger sister, White Lune, appears before him with Doublecross's severed head and a plan: if the Three Wise Ones once used the jewels to create the Beastformers by giving machines to animals, they should be able to use them to evolve further alongside machines. The jewels emit a light that sucks in the Haywire Laser and merges it with White Lune, who transforms into a robot and knocks Tigerburn's block off. White Leo himself is merged with Doublecross's head, allowing him to transform into it and combine with Doublecross, whose mind(s) is restored in the process. Doublecross and White Lune blow Tigerburn back into his own dimension with a Spark Fire Attack, after which the siblings prepare to return and continue the war back home, but first they stop to apologize to the Legends locals for forcing them to become Beastformers. Upset, Rattrap and Tigatron tell them to consider how things would be if their roles were reverse: how would the Beastformers like it if they were forced to wear nothing but neckties and work as office workers? White Leo and Lune agree that it would be awful.

Misfire:
The buildings in Neo Akihabara City are being bought up one by one by Misfire, whose luck in gambling and the stock market has made him filthy rich. When the 'bot himself appears, throwing money around and demanding to be called "Perfectfire" from now on, Triggerhappy refuses to believe someone as unlucky and prone to missing as him could pull this off. Hot Rod and Shaoshao Li are also suspicious, especially given the presence of Misfire's Targetmaster partner, Aimless, and that night they sneak into Misfire's purchased Trypticon to investigate. Misfire catches them and fires Aimless at Hot Rod, but instead hits Shaoshao, transforming her into an infant! He reveals that Aimless's mutant ability is to shoot through time itself, allowing him to see into the future and get rich, which in turn has afforded him a transtector that he combines with.

Misfire blasts a hole into the future in order to predict how Hot Rod will move, making it impossible for the Autobot to dodge his attacks... but is somehow so bad at aiming that even knowing the future, he fails to hit a completely still Hot Rod and instead ends up blasting all the stuff he's bought, which disappears to when-knows-where. Hot Rod punches his head off and demands he restore Shaoshao to normal, only for Misfire to miss again and hit Hot Rod, "aging" him into Rodimus Prime. Everything is eventually cleared up and Misfire and Aimless are arrested, though Shaoshao is mad at Hot Rod for not making her younger when he had the chance. Unfortunately, the officer supposed to interrogate Misfire is Triggerhappy, who starts teaching his old comrade how to aim instead.

Oh boy, this is hilarious. The Arcee with literal drill-hair is my favourite, along with shameless Papika, the continued misadventures of Hot Rod and Shaoshao (featuring a callback to that one episode where Marissa gets babyfied) and actually to scale Broadside.

Also, does this mean Battle Beasts are officially part of Transformers canon now? I mean, I know nothing about Battle Beasts, but if this is gonna be anything like the Ask Vector Prime Gobots shenanigans I can see a glorious outpouring of salt from Walky and co.

The Beastformers (as they're called in Japan) were always part of Transformers. They were released in Japan under the Autobot and Decepticon factions as allies to each, and they appeared multiple times in The Headmasters cartoon.

Only the Western version, Battle Beasts, was released as its own line unrelated to Transformers.

I certainly appreciate the synopsis, It's very helpful. I do wish whomever occasionally puts together the translations would do so with more of these. If they started a Patreon, I would be happy to join that one. :D

Weapon: Saber Blade
And here's the Broadside comic's synopsis:

In the 2030s of the G1 World, Grand Scourge has interrupted a battle between the Autobots and Decepticons by taking the Stunticons as his limbs and defeating Superion, and is now going after Optimus Prime's Matrix. Prime is saved when Broadside comes leaping out of a gigantic jet, freeing the Aerialbots from Scourge's grasp before transforming into a head and combining with the jet—actually a city-sized transtector that dwarfs the villain. One blast from his 80,000 volt plasma pulse gun sends Scourge flying straight out of their dimension, and the Decepticons flee. Broadside explains that his past seasickness, fear of heights and frail constitution has led him to repeatedly remodel himself in pursuit of self-improvement, and his latest body is that of a gigantic Headmaster.

Broadside and the Aerialbots are later deployed to the current era of the Legends World to guard the dimension against future threats. Impressed by his power, Armada Thrust tries to convince Broadside to conquer the world with him, and when the Triple Changer refuses, he and Trickdiamond take matters into their own hands and steal the transtector. Broadside can only watch as Thrust defeats Metroplex and Trypticon, and is lamenting that the power he got to protect people is now being used for conquest when Brawn and Repugnus show up and offer their help through use of their armor suits. They recognize that while a regular transtector would be of no use to Broadside, they can able to use Blowpipe's clone beam to multiply the mass of Repugnus's suit to the point where Broadside can pilot it.

Using the suit's flight mode, Broadside flies into his transtector and confronts Thrust, who pleads for forgiveness, claiming he only wanted to prove the power of his intellect. Broadside understands his feelings, having made poor decisions in the past because he felt weak and sought power, including working with the Decepticons. He tells Thrust that everyone makes mistakes, and what's important is realizing they were mistakes and changing for the better, using Megatron's current peaceful attitude as an example. Furthermore, Broadside believes that while he himself has trained his body to become powerful, Thrust's strength lies in his trained brain, and he encourages the Decepticon to use his intellect for something good. Thrust takes his words to heart and decides to stay with him and the Aerialbots, though he doesn't particularly get along with the other fliers. They're all shocked when Broadside decides to rest and reveals that the bridge of his aircraft carrier serves as a chair for him.

Looks like the backside of the chair Courage was sitting in. Technically, the original was a Brainmaster with a face in his chest until the MP came along and he became a "cogmaster" :lol:

My one biggest take away from all this is that repugnus can have a robot mood just flip up the head and turn around the Titan Master head and he can have a similar look to his old G1 self that's amazing to me I never thought about that.

Warning there is some NSFW material in the first panel of the comic.


Oh look, an LG-60 Overlord teased :-D

At least we saw the modernization of Gigatank and Megajet, for a brief appearance :x

Well, it's Possible, Sixshot was a Decepticon and now Greatshot ... an Autobot...
i can't remember how he was an Autobot in the Victory manga.
I can't wait for LG-EX Black Shadow coming in his story. :-?

Scan of Takara Tomy Legends LG-EX God Ginrai In-Pack Comic

Postby Va'al » Sat Dec 02, 2017 1:48 am

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Thanks to Seibertronian Powered Convoy, who found the image elsewhere - and it originates on 4chan, by the looks of it - we have a scan of the in-pack comic that accompanies the Takara Tomy Transformers LG-EX God Ginrai set, featuring both new additions Minerva and Cab, and a couple of other characters from the Legends manga series, as drawn by artist Hayato Sakamoto.

Notably, we also get a brief glimpse at the LG-60 Overlord, through 'modernised' renditions of Gigatank and Megajet as seen in the upcoming release of the figure first seen in Titans Return, along with the Headmasters proper in the story (as opposed to the Titan Masters released under Hasbro's version of the toyline), both God Magnus and Super Ginrai, and some entirely unnecessary fanservice. Check out the image below, and click to enlarge!

Honestly, the recurring portrayal of these young girls getting naked is getting downright creepy. Like, Kiss Players level of creepy... :shock:

That's something of an exaggeration. Basically every character is canonically older than they were in their original portrayal, and unlike in Kiss Players there's no rapey subtext or penis tongues (not to mention they're not drawn like children). Sure it's a little risque but on the whole it's very, very tame.

Wrong god. ;)

So, any guesses who the guy at the end with Overlord's Master Braces is? He has Giga's non-Godmaster armor gloves on, but how would that work?

That is Giga. He’s been showing up quite a bit in the past few stories. They’re building up to Overlords return

I understand that there is a notable difference, but I don't know. It still comes off as excessive to me. Is the legends line not marketed to children? I have no problem with nudity, but I would have a problem with my son opening up a toy and this comic was inside.

It's definitely marketed to collectors rather than children. The Legends line as a whole is aimed more at older collectors.

Though it is worth noting the Japanese have a MUCH more lax view on nudity than the West (at least, in cartoons). If a kid WERE to read it their reaction would probably be "LOL, boobs!" in much the same way as kids' comics in the West might wedgie gags or the like. AFAIK nobody much in Japan outside of a very small group of moral busybodies (basically "Won't someone please think of the children!?!" types) really cares. Compare that with Kiss Players where the Japanese fanbase were outright disgusted and were worried that Westerners might think that sh!t was considered "normal" in Japan.

To quote TV Tropes, Naked People are Funny. A shame then that TV Tropes isn't anymore.

But yeah, either way it's really nothing to get upset about. Equal parts cultural dissonance and Sakamoto exercising his ability to not give a toss thanks to an older audience.

(Of course, given that Sakamoto-senpai is actually pretty familiar with the Western fanbase it's entirely possible he's doing it just to upset certain silly individuals.)
