You mean putting those toys in the Legends line? That sounds very unlikely, especially if they were to resume airing the show in Japan.


God Prime Bee? Could happen
What? Image


That's my made up Japanese name for the Ultra Bee combiner if it's released in their power of the primes line.
Why wouldn't they just keep the Hasbro name like they've done for practically every Adventure toy character with a Hasbro counterpart?

Courtesy of Allspark.com user Creedence, here are scans of the Adventure manga story that was published by Hero-X in the Transformers Generations 2015 book (translation of the story's title still pending as of this typing).

It features appearances of many toy-only characters from the Adventure toyline (including the ones exclusive to Hero-X) who did not appear in the RID 2015 cartoon (but which does include a couple of characters from the previous Prime cartoon).

Expect an English summary of this manga's events from TFWiki in the near future.

Scans of Transformers Adventure Manga Featuring Lockdown, Ultra Magnus, Dog Fight and BattleChargers

Postby william-james88 » Thu Mar 29, 2018 7:31 pm

Sabreblade has informed us of new scans showing the Transformers Adventure comic that came in the Hero-X Transformers Generations book. Transformers Adventure was the Japanese version of the latest Robots in Disguise line and included characters we didn't get in the western version of the line Runamuck, Runabout, Lockdown, Overdrive, Black Convoy and many others.

Seeing these manga scans has me wondering: who here collected stuff from the Adventure line, and which molds would they recommend? I kind of dig some of the repaints and was wondering which ones people preferred. Already have Lockdown, so who do you think would look good alongside him?

For Lockdown, the two Insecticons were advertised as his personal army of minions, and they're both redecos/retools of decent Generations molds, so they're good to go with Adventure Lockdown.

Despite how old it is nobody bothered scanning the pages back then so this is our first look at it.

It would be funny if the other sites had the same problem.

Motto: "It's not done right if it's not done well."
Weapon: Saber Blade
Okay! We got ourselves a title and a summary for this manga!

"Return! The Most Evil Duo"

On Cybertron, Lockdown has captured Ultra Magnus and plans to dismantle him for parts, much to the annoyance of Runamuck who'd rather he didn't do that stuff in one of his favorite hang-out spots. He's further bothered by Runabout blowing stuff up, though it turns out his bomb-loving partner isn't just having fun: the explosions are caused by Autobots Override, Dogfight and Ricochet who have tripped some remote mines on their way to rescue Magnus. Runamuck takes Lockdown's Insecticons and heads out to fight the intruders, leaving Lockdown with Ultra Magnus... who then escapes his bonds, having merely faked being restrained. Before he can battle his captor, the other Autobots arrive, having made short work of Runamuck and Runabout, and Ricochet defeats the Decepticons with a powerful blast from Dogfight's gun mode. To Magnus's shock, the cocky Dogfight then tells him to clean up their mess.

Things haven't been a complete loss for Runamuck and Runabout, however, who are more competent than most think and have acquired a certain component during the conflict. Some time later they deliver the part to Bloody Knock Out, allowing him to finish his top secret project—the creation of Nemesis Prime.
