I always enjoy these comics. Glad people talk about them as I enjoy sharing them with people. The figures are very nice too.

Close. It's not Black Convoy's body per se, but the body of one of many Black Convoy drones. Clouder was previously seen in command of a whole army of them (and an army of Beast Machines Tank Drones) in one of the Trypticon comics. As Clouder is now a member of the Legend World's Japanese Self-Defense Forces, he presumably has government-sanctioned access to such military armaments. 8-)

I am just doing whatever I can to still present the comic to you guys while doing everything by the book. By comparison, TFW chose to flat out not post the comics and only news the bios.

And just for your information, here is an ad from the comic book legal defense fund showing that having material similar to what we find in the comic can have serious circumstances depending on where you are. If you feel this is too much, you are free to join their cause.

I just want to ensure everyone is happy and those who want to see the comic still can :)

So the Spike in the previous manga is a fake(?) And, so I was correct that it looked like Spike.So the upcoming Bumble will have the "real" Spike?So who's the "fake" one?

As for Minerva, how much has time elapsed since Masterforce? I doubt it she's still 15 years old as Dinosaurer is post Zone

Also, so Brawn/Gong's new body is like a powered suit this time around? I wonder how Grimlock will return back to his Dino body in Takara's PotPrimes version?

The Spike impostor is probably Zartan.

That's where things get tricky. The thing is, while Full-Tilt was brought to the Legends World from a point in the JG1 universe set after Zone, Minerva came to the Legends World from the JG1 universe in the year 2021, which is some years before Zone. And yet, very little time has passed in the Legends World between Minerva's arrival there and Trypticon's arrival there. In fact, Megatron arrived in the Legends World from a point even after G-2 (further after Zone) in the JG1 universe, yet even though he came from an even later point that Trypticon, he arrived in the Legends World before even Minerva did. Thus, it would seem that time in the Legends World does not correspond to time in the JG1 universe, as it seems that anyone from the JG1 universe can just come and go to the Legends World with no regard for chronology or the passage of time in the JG1 universe.

That said, while we know that Minerva came to the Legends World from the year 2021 in the JG1 universe, we still do not know, officially, what year the Masterforce cartoon is set in. All we know is that it is set at some point between 2011 and 2021, but given that all of the Masterforce characters who have thus far appeared in the Legends manga look no older than they did in the cartoon, it is plausible that the Masterforce cartoon takes place at some point closer to 2021 than not. If anything, Minerva (and the rest of the Masterforce humans) may have aged one year since her appearance in the cartoon, but that's just a guess since we still don't know what year Masterforce was set in.

fenrir72 wrote:Also, so Brawn/Gong's new body is like a powered suit this time around? I wonder how Grimlock will return back to his Dino body in Takara's PotPrimes version?
We'll have to wait and see. Though, since the PotP Grimlock toy is a combiner, Takara may release it not as part of the Legends line but as part of a revival of the Unite Warriors line, which could very well see Grimlock in his PotP Combiner body at a point in his life before he became a Headmaster rather than after. But, then again, it could just as well be that he does become a combiner after his time as a Headmaster like you suggest. It could go either way, really, so we'll just have to wait and see what Takara does with Grimlock.

Minerva and the gang traveled to the Legends Universe in G1 year 2021, after Masterforce but before Victory's in-universe year of 2025. As Legends is a different universe altogether (the Iocus cluster, according to Club Transtech fiction), visitors travel through space as well as time, relatively speaking.

So Minerva is still 15 at the youngest, as no proper year is given for Masterforce proper.

About Grimlock. I wonder what literature gymnastics Takara is going to apply here? Gong on the other hand, so he DID survive the 2005 ambush. But what shrunk him to headmaster size? His immigration to Planet master? Like Cha'r?

More like a build upon how the Concurrence (the group of human villains he is seen reporting to in the online manga) consists of both Transformers and G.I. Joe villains--particularly Count von Rani and General Kreiger--as the Japanese dub of the G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero cartoon is considered part of the Japanese G1 Transformers cartoon universe, albeit set in the early 1990s instead of the 80s like the English version was, with the Concurrence itself first appearing in the Binaltech storyline.

Okay, just found out how/why Blowpipe was disintegrating everyone's clothes. Turns out he's full of Plasma Energy, which as we'll recall from both The Rebirth and Beast Machines, is harmful to inorganic materials. Hot Rod hides behind Shaoshao to avoid getting hit by the blast, so while Shaoshao herself is unharmed, her clothes are destroyed since they're made of inorganic fibers. This also explains why Ravage appears so damaged as well, as he wasn't so lucky in dodging Blowpipe's attacks.

So the "nudity" scenes are again a nod( and part of the plot and not just a random show 'em some skin T & A ;) ) to the ill effects of the Plasma Energy Chamber on inorganics. Spike and the Nebulans were immune while TFs short out in Rebirth. So "clothes" burn off.

As for the manga with Clouder, is that a flashback or a portent of things to come with Mega and Giga aka Overlord's binding again with organics ( when did they resurrect?)

The author and his backstory researchers are real troopers in this regard!

For the NSFW debate, I have no problem with the site putting whatever designation they deem fit based on whatever guidelines are needed for this particular recurring theme in the JG1 magna.

But am I the only one to think that my job has nothing to do with transformers, so just being on seibertron.com is technically NSFW for me? The point isn't really the content, but the fact that it isn't work related. (Not that that stops me...)

English summaries for the three new pack-in comics:

Kickback & Clouder
The Insecticons once attempted to use their clones to overrun the universe and sate their hunger, only to be stopped by Skids, Screech and a new, extra powerful robotic insecticide. Having learned of Blowpipe's cloning ability, Kickback decides to try again and travels to the Legends World where he eats his way into the police station where the mutant Targetmaster is held and uses him to create a swarm of tiny Kickback clones. As the clones begin swarming Neo Akihabara City, eating into everything and converting it into energon for Kickback, Mayor Megatron relies on the city's secret weapon—Major Clouder, commanding officer of the JSDF's drone units.

After dropping out of the sky and kicking Kickback (who laments that kicking is his thing), the Masterforce armor-clad Clouder orders his Tank Drones to unleash robotic insecticide on the swarm, but the Insecticon stops him by pointing out that Blowpipe has granted him the ability to turn others into clones of himself, and many of the Kickback clones are in fact innocent citizens. The taken aback Clouder is contacted by Wheeljack, who tells him he's modified a Black Convoy drone to serve as a transtector and equipped it with an Immobilizer V2. Clouder combines with the drone and freezes Kickback and his clones in place, allowing the Autobots to revert the transformed citizens to normal and recover Blowpipe.

After being thanked by Megatron for saving the city, Clouder returns to his true masters—Giga and Mega—who praise him for earning Megatron's trust and providing them with information about the Legends World. In the end, he is after all the two-faced Doubleclouder, and you never know if he's an ally or a spy.

Gong (Brawn) & Repug (Repugnus)
Brawn has finally made enough money from his construction job to restore his original body, and proudly shows it off to his roommate, Repugnus. Though impressed at first, Repugnus accidentally uncovers that the "body" is actually a mech being piloted by the real Brawn, who remains a tiny Headmaster. Brawn explains that he's met a girl, Scylla, who prefers larger men, but could never make enough money to afford a transtector so he settled for a smaller piloted body. When the day comes for his arranged date with Scylla, however, Brawn comes down with a virus and tells Repugnus to go in his stead, using the body to pretend to be him. Repugnus is hesitant, so Brawn reminds his roommate that he owes him, being a freeloader who Brawn has been taking care of ever since he left Beast, but also promises to buy him a body too if things goes well.

Repugnus relents and goes on the date with Scylla, but leaves destruction in his wake since he doesn't know how to control the body and keeps blasting and walking into things. Scylla requests he transform and he barely manages thanks to phone contact with Brawn, only for the ruse to be up anyway when Scylla, wanting to ride the car mode, opens the cockpit and finds Repugnus inside. Throwing him out, she takes control of the body herself and barges into Brawn's place, demanding an explanation.

Targetmaster Triggerhappy
While in police custody, Blowpipe begins emitting dangerous amounts of plasma energy that destroys all inorganic substances it touches, including the police officers' clothes and the back half of Ravage. Regular Transformers can't even approach the energy, and the still living Ravage informs his colleagues that there's only one who can—Blowpipe's Targetmaster partner, Triggerhappy. Triggerhappy is currently running a shooting gallery to earn money for a transtector, but his business is going poorly because whenever a customer misses a target, the gun-loving marksman is compelled to show them how it's done and shoots it for them, effectively giving away all his prizes.

Hot Rod approaches Triggerhappy and asks for his help with controlling Blowpipe, who has begun rampaging through the city, seeing as how he's been bathed in plasma energy before when the two were bonded and should be immune to his emissions. Triggerhappy argues that he can't combine with Blowpipe in his current Headmaster form, so the police provide him with a transtector that allows him to shrug off Blowpipe's plasma energy and blast the smaller Targetmaster into submission. Upon retrieving his old partner, he immediately tries to blast everyone else as well, but the clone beam instead ends up restoring everything Blowpipe destroyed, including Ravage's body. Unsure about what to do with him, Hot Rod and Shaoshao end up inducting Triggerhappy into the police force as well, seeing as that way they can at least keep an eye on him. The Targetmaster is happy with this since it means he gets to legally fire guns, though he ends up causing trouble by always going in guns blazing, even during delicate hostage situations.

Mega and Giga are ALIVE! Did Devil Z change his mind and resurrect them? Guess we'll have to wait next year for the answer.

As for Gong, was he part of the battle when BlackZarak exploded that Blackball bomb or did he join Cha'r and got "Micronized"? Wished that would be cleared up later.

Kickback gone "lonewolf" now?

Apperently, we might going to see what happened to Giga and Mega on the LG-60 Overlord soon.

Gong/Brawn was affected by the mini black holes, i'm sure of it.

I'm still not sure about kickback, still hoping for an LG-EX Insectron (Insecticon) with Bombshell and Skrapnel :HEADHURTS:

Scans of Pack In Comics for Transformers Legends Sixshot, Doublecross, Misfire, and Broadside

PostPosted: Tue Nov 28, 2017 8:57 am
by william-james88
Our friends Powered Convoy has uploaded the comic scans and tech specs for Takara's recently released Transformers Legends LG-50 Sixshot, LG-51 Doublecross, LG-52 Misfire, and LG-53 Broadside.

With Sixshot being a leader class figure, we get a lengthier comic and a chance to showcase all his modes in a glorious fashion through a fight with Ultra Magnus. We even see the appearance of the flying wolf mode, an extra mode the toy can have which is not included in the instructions.

The Broadside comic has a lot of fun with the idea of Broadside's changing looks throughout history with his latest look being the headmaster unit (which was called Blunderbuss when released by Hasbro). They keep the scale established with the aerialbots that are included with the set, making Broadside massive even just as a head. He towers over Megatron and Optimus (who is using his Masterpiece body here, interestingly enough) and Grand Scourge who makes a fun return.

Broadside is gigantic when combined to his transtector, dwarfing even Trypticon.

The Doublecross comic shows us that it is indeed White Leo piloting the Transtector, though the image shows us two different White Leos so i is unsure exactly what is going on without a proper translation.

The Misfire comic has Hayato Sacomoto create some brand new fiction for the grey and black Autobot Targetmasters. Unlike the Decepticons Targetmasters and the three red and gray Autobot Targetmasters, who are smaller robots, these grey and black Autobot Targetmasters are girls.

These are filled the the usual fan service from the artist who takes it up a notch with the addition of anthropomorphised animals through Battle Beasts.

Remember that these must be read from right to left (from up to down).

Enjoy!

So Broadside can grow bigger than Trypticon? And Misfire has a weird age regression gun? And the Battle Beasts don't wear pants?

Oh Japan. Despite being one of my favorite countries... I still don't understand what the f**k goes on over there.


And is it me, or does Star Saber's brain master look like it has a titan master face on it? Will we actually be getting a POTP Star Saber!? Or is it just the Masterpiece...
