Scorponok needs to be at least a leader class size figure. Of course I'm one of the people who want to see him done as a titan class.

They’ve really made her quite unlikeable.


I was under the impression that a lot of people don't like Windblade to be honest.


On a side note, that redeco for twinferno would be sweet, but I don't see it happening.

Personally I’m not a fan of Winblade. It’s not because we keep getting toys and she’s just put in every fiction. Im just not a fan of how she’s been portrayed. I don’t like her character in IDW at all. In RID she’s a total Mary Sue, her portrayal in Titans return I actually kinda liked because she’s flawed as hell and the show didn’t rely on her as a McGuffin for the end and I don’t need a new toy every year of her. I hope she’s done well in the new cartoon however because she ain’t going anywhere

I think she'll go through a few more character changes yet before they find something suitable.

I do like the Black Zarak repaint of Twinferno. Probably be overpriced so I guess I'll be customising one of the many shelf warming Twinfernos in my local.

I really like how it homages the 2 headed serpent mode while vastly improving it and I now want the Scorponok Titanmaster and Grotusque even more.

At this point, she's been brainwashed by Katsu Don, after having surrendered herself to be used as a weapon of mass destruction by him in order to stop a previous attack by the Mutant Targetmasters who were destroying the world. She gave herself up so that Katsu Don could turn her into a Headmaster and allow her to combine with the Transtector body that Katsu Don had been working on for Windblade's big sister Nijika. In their agreement, Windblade was able to stop the Mutant Targetmasters and bonded with Pinpointer as her new Targetmaster, but at the cost of her free will since she had to return to Katsu Don and become a weapon for the Zamojin once again. Now that she's lost her free will, every good guy who's fighting her now is not just trying to stop her but also trying to save her. It's kinda tragic and noble in a way, as when she wasn't under the control of the Zamojin, she was rather kindhearted and friendly.

i know i read the summaries of the comics but still her whole fiction in Legends hasn't portrayed her well at all. it just feels like "well were getting another toy i guess we have to do something with her" and its hasnt really treated her the best.

To be fair, has her treatment really been that much worse than those of most of the other Fembots in this manga series? ;)

Images of In Package Comics for Transformers Legends LG EX Greatshot and Grand Maximus

Postby william-james88 » Sat Mar 31, 2018 12:47 pm

We have images taken of the latest entries in the Legends manga / comic series. Both Transformers Legends LG EX Grand Maximus and Greatshot came with a 6 page comic. As usual, these are filled to the brim with Easter eggs (how timely). The Grand max comic might just take the cake with an appearance of Black Zarack (Dark Scorponok) with an inventive use of the Titans Return Twinerno mold, making reference to Black Zarack's two headed dragon mode. There is also an amazing shot of all the Beast Wars Maximal leaders, Optimus Primal (sporting his Beast Machines body), Leo Convoy and Big Convoy. Plus you will find a series of epic shots like Greatshot riding Star Sabre and much more. We highlighted some shots below followed by the comics. These were found on the TFW2005 boards, and posted by Gamerlingual. Enjoy!

Summary from tfwiki

Greatshot


In the year 2022 of the G1 World, Marissa Faireborn is leading an Earth Defense Command force against the last holdout of the Concurrence when she's assisted by a mysterious starship. The Autobot First Army are similarly aided by a tank while battling on the surface on the moon, and by the end of the battle, they have collected reports of six of these mysterious Transformers appearing out of nowhere to help them. Star Saber, returning after being cleared of false charges, clears up that their benefactor is not six warriors, but one warrior with six modes: his friend Greatshot.
Months earlier, Star Saber thanks Sixshot for breaking him out of jail by gifting him a new transtector, telling him to use it to take on the new identity "Greatshot" in order continue to fake his death and avoid the Six Clan's wrath. Sixshot accepts his offer and promises to join the Autobots in the future, but for now he remains in the Legends World to work with Giga on using Shinchōkon to resurrect Jack. As Overlord, Giga infuses Sixshot with the energy and explains that they will replicate the miracle of Megatron returning to life in a smaller body, but there is a caveat: this method of resurrection requires a body, so Sixshot will have to give his up for Jack to inhabit. The process succeeds and Jack comes back to life as a Headmaster while Sixshot's soul is instead transferred into the transtector, fully turning him into Greatshot. Remembering his evil deeds, particularly his role in Jack's death and yet how Chromedome was still willing to help him, Greatshot drives Jack to Chromedome and watches their tearful reunion. Since Greatshot still needs a head to function properly, Jack magnanimously decides to be his Headmaster partner and returns to the G1 World where the two are embroiled in the battle with the Concurrence.
Greatshot is uninterested in helping the EDC, believing himself unsuited for being a hero, but Jack convinces him to see it as atonement, guilting him by reminding him he's talking to someone he murdered. He relents and travels to the battlefield, where he's reunited with Star Saber and allows him to ride his rhino mode into battle before borrowing his swords and using them to destroy the Concurrence's base. With the Concurrence defeated, Spike reclaims his spot as Galactic Peace Alliance chairman and Daniel and Bumblebee return safely as well. Greatshot eventually gets his own head and becomes a proper Transformer again, allowing Jack to return to Chromedome's side, and goes on to fight the Decepticons alongside Star Saber. In 2026, he is gravely injured during the Silvart War and again accepts his fate as atonement for his past, muttering goodbyes to Daniel, Star Saber and Jack as he awaits his death. To his surprise, however, those very people and many others suddenly come to his aid, having been looking for him since his disappearance. Slipping back into his old Sixshot speech pattern, Greatshot admits that having friends isn't so bad.

While it’s always been a fan theory Greatshot is sixshot it’s never been canon however this comic makes it official that Sixshot became Greatshot between Headmaster and victory.

The pose also made me think of the 1986 movie where Optimus was on the operating table too.

Fear not, for Sixshot and Greatshot are still separate people in other continuities like IDW and the Pop-Up Universe, so it's even more like the case of "God Ginrai/Victory Leo" than the others.

And people to this day still argue over whether Galvatron is a new guy from Megatron or still Megatron at his core, so even that's still not so clear-cut to some.

Motto: "It's not done right if it's not done well."
Weapon: Saber Blade
And here comes the Grand Maximus manga summary, and boy is it a DOOZY!

The Autobot Matrix of Leadership records the bearer's life and experiences, their "wisdom", and converts it into an all-purpose form of energy. It was created by Primacron, a scientist said to have existed since the dawn of time, who built it into his assistant, the Oracle, before they went on to create the ultimate planet robot, Unicron. Upon learning that the wisdom of the Matrix was the only thing that could match his power, Unicron rebelled against Primacron and destroyed the Oracle, who survived by transferring his being into the Matrix. He fled to the center of the galaxy and emptied the Matrix into a planet, becoming an embodiment of its wisdom and fusing with the world that would one day become Cybertron. The planet was later settled by the Quintessons, who discovered the Oracle's power and confined it within Vector Sigma, a supercomputer they controlled using a Key with which they then mechanized the planet. The aliens used Vector Sigma to manufacture intelligent slave robots who later rose up and claimed the planet for themselves, recovering the Matrix in the process. Finding it full of evil energy after years of absorbing the Quintessons' wisdom, they emptied it out and disposed of the energy.

This is the story told by Devil Z, who is none other than that very discarded Matrix energy! During police interrogation, the captured being explains that his motive is revenge against the universe for being discarded, and that thousands of years ago he stole unprogrammed Powermaster bodies from the G Nebula 89 factory and brought them to Earth to be infused with the planet's Zodiac and Angolmois energies, transforming them into Godmasters. Furthermore, he himself absorbed the same energies to evolve: the true meaning of his name is "Devil Zodiac". With this revelation, he taps into Shinchōkon, breaks his restraints and summons the brainwashed Scorponok from the G1 World, where he's been busy enslaving Beastformers and using them to build a new BlackZarak transtector. With Scorponok as his Headmaster and Devil Z in his abdomen as a Getmaster power source, BlackZarak makes short work of the Decepticon Headmasters when Mindwipe attempts to exorcise Devil Z, then announces his plan—he will kill all beings in the Legends World so that its energies will feed only him: Devil Z will become the Legends World and use its Shinchōkon to dominate other universes. Katsu Don explains that this is why he wanted to destroy the world entirely, its energies being dangerous to fall into the wrong hands.

Gran then arrives through a portal to battle Devil Z, leaving his human Pretender shell to form the head of Grand. Devil Z doesn't understand why a robot would transform into a human, so Grand explains that he's a follower of their creator's, the Oracle's, belief that true peace can only be achieved when machines and living beings come together. It all began with the Oracle himself being a beast-type robot who believed that infusing machines with life, thus granting robots instincts, was the road to peace. His first creations were the Trans-Organics, failures who only inherited the rage of wild beasts and cruelty of machines, but in recent years the Transformers have come far and invented the Powermaster fusion between robots and humans. Grand hopes that one day, they will come so far as to create a new type of life that is equally organic and mechanical. Speaking through a Synapse, the computer of the G Nebula factory explains that it was created by the Oracle for the purpose of pursuing this goal after he was forced by the Quintessons to create purely mechanical beings. Its research has led to the creation of the many Masterforce warriors who now activate their suits and join the fray.

Grand has built a new Grand Maximus transtector the same size as Fortress's for the sake of battling BlackZarak, causing Fortress to protest since his brother doesn't have the training to control it, but Grand is intent on showing that he can be just as useful. He forms Grand Maximus and joins forces with the Shinchōkon-powered God Ginrai wielding a combined Shaoshao, Sue, and White Lune, exclaiming that if even Devil Z is wielding the power of the gods in Shinchōkon, they can overcome it with their Super-God Masterforce! After spouting some platitudes that true strength lies in the pursuit of peace, Grand Maximus cleaves BlackZarak in two. He then chastises the Zamojin for trying to destroy the world, telling them that'd make them as bad as Devil Z and that the people of the Legends World can overcome any danger as long they work together. Plus, he can't let them destroy the only world where Fortress's condition can be treated. Grand finally reaches his limit and collapses, and when Fortress comes to his aid, he expresses his amazement that his brother does this sort of thing all the time and jokes that at least they can now receive treatment together.

That story is epic, a lot to take in their, the way some of it unfolded would make you believe it was intended that way from the very beginning.

Wait a sec, did his story just retcon the history of everything we know on the origin of Transformers?
