Takara Tomy Transformers Legends Toyline Thread

Feel free to discuss anything about any of the thousands of Transformer toys here. Anything from Generation 1 all the way to the soon to be released, the never to be released or the hope to be released is fair game! Want to show off your stuff? Please post your's and see others in the Transformers Collections Forum.

At this point, dear Readers, Primal forgot to read the part of William's post that stated "COPY AND PASTE YOUR REPLIES TO THE OTHER THREAD", and carried on, regardless, in this thread, including a wry attempt at humour about merging the threads, oblivious to the consequences that were yet to come. Let's see what happened next!

There aren't two threads for power of the primes. This is the legends thread which is a completely different line.

Little did our hero know, but William had pressed the Sibertron panic button, only recently fixed after Primal's last "Not-S@k@mo@o-Gate" shenanigans. This button, imbued with the scent of white chocolate Timtams lace with Vegemite, roused the sleeping form of Burn, Primal's nemesis, from the land of criminals and eaters of kangaroos

Still oblivious to, what must have been now blindingly obvious to even the slowest of wits, Primal soldiered on, showing a nice picture of Grimlock, which he was sure would lighten everyone's mood.

It did not.

Yeah, I think the confusion comes in with the possibility that mayhaps some of these PotP designs will hopefully still make it into the Legends toy line as exclusives, with better paint and maybe some remolding.

But, I heard somewhere that hope is just undiscovered disappointment.... :-s

It is. Rereleasing the entire POTP line with slightly better paint apps as TTmall exclusives wont happen.

The quote was pretty simple, there will still be some legends releases as TTmall exclusives. We are already seeing that since the last Legends releases so far on schedule are indeed these TTmall exclusives like Greatshot and Grand Max. It will be stuff like that (different characters and whatnot).

And should there be TakaraTomy exclusive PotP (anything beyond Titans Return) redecos, they're in the TakaraTomy PotP line, plain and simple. Apply the logic from the Movie lines.

Back to Legends being repurposed as an exclusive line, after Great Shot and Grand Maximus, I wonder what's next? We still have a Black Shadow and Ptero that are unused, plus some Legends head and Titan Master face plates.

See this primalxconvoy? You upset a Canadian. A CANADIAN. Those guys are so freaking chilled.

You were asked by a staff member to end the POTP discussion in this thread, there's a perfectly good thread for POTP discussion.

You've been pulled up multiple times for posting off-topic, I don't know what your problem is, part of me suspects you're just being a smartarse to try to get under the skin of staff, I know it's not because you're stupid, you're definitely not that.

So consider this your last chance. Stay on-topic, follow staff directives, or warnings ensure.

I'm going back to my lunch now.

Australians are chilled, too, Burn, and I work with a Canadian. Nice but he keeps adding "A" to all the words he teaches. It's bad enough that Japanese people put "o" or "u" in the end of everything, but after they've been with him, they say "Harro-AY", and "Beri-AY gudo-AY"... ;) *

Anyway, I'm honestly confused now. Where do I talk about the Japanese POTP figures?

Until any TakaraTomy exclusives come rolling about, right here:

Power of the Primes Leaks, Rumors, Reveals and More

The Hasbro and TakaraTomy lines have no changes between them (bet that's a surprise), so there's no real point of having two threads for essentially the same figures in two different territories.

Forgive me if someone has pointed this out before. It just occurred to me earlier this evening to compare Universe 2008 Cyclonus' Targetmaster, Nightstick, to the new Targetmasters released by Takara for the Transformers Legends line. They actually scale almost perfectly with one another, to my delight! Nightstick does look just ever so slightly out of step in terms of aesthetics with the newer crop of figures, not having quite as much sculpting detail as the current offerings, but he's no sore thumb. So, feel free to proudly display your Cyclonus with Nighstick, or any other uses of the mold, like with Million Publishing Artfire with Nightstick and Stepper/Ricochet with Nebulon Nighstick, alongside the rest of The Headmasters cast of Targetmasters. Now I just need to find a redeco of Nightstick that works as Fracas for Scourge. Artfire's Nighstick would be perfect, but he's already taken. If you're confused by all the different figures called Nightstick, then this might help?

Thanks, that's what I was getting at. Well, I'm off to go sully that discussion thread with my high jinx and antics. Don't tell Burn until after he's finished his food and had at least one Peptibismol for his "Primal Ulcer".

Ill also edit and move my original comments to that thread, with some hopefully witty replacements to boot. Enjoy!

Burn, I just moved all my comments to the other thread, and by way of apology, edited my original posts to look like I was a blithering simpleton, for the amusement of all and sundry. I am not sure if I can attach blood as a file to my posts, but if that's what you want, I'll do my best.

Please enjoy your meal.

Back on the topic of Legends exclusives...

Besides Buster and Hydra, I'm really hoping they crank out a new pair of Artfire and Stepper. They have the molds in the factory to do it (ie. the new Inferno and Jazz)... plus they've quite deliberately left out the targetmaster partners from their characters in all of the recent Takara releases. This gives me a shred of hope.

The notion of a white/red core body is quite appealing. I can slap all of those Botcon Ratchets on an Artfire body for a beautiful all white medic gestalt. :DANCE:

Now if we can just pry some names out of them for all these new gestalt characters. :-?

Anyone else have a good educated guess about a good upcoming Legends exclusive? Come on. Get my imagination going this morning.

Buster and Hydra would be one, Sixknight maybe another

I would not mind a Stepper and Artfire either. I have the MP Artfire and SG Stepper, but it would be fun to get them in combiner form too. Now if only we could get them with combining targetmasters for the combined form...

And since those 2 are kind of the exclusive targetmasters, it would be cool to pair them together in a combiner and have the targetmasters attach, sort of like Scoop, but better

I would not buy Sixknight or Quickswitch repaint at a premium because they are NOT supposed to be the same mold at all. Thank goodness I have Fansproject X-6 Knight as a proper Sixknight.

My take is from what it looks like since half of the members here dont understand who calls the shots we wont be getting ant Takara repaints or remolds henceforth unless its done under the Legends banner as a TT Mall exclusive.

Now that you have seen the proof lets hope we get a Hydra and Buster repaint for starters maybe as a 2 pack TT Mall exclusive.

I was pretty pleased with the Quickswitch retool. There are some decent fan modes that feel more like a boat, etc. Color and head sculpt do help convince you it's another character.

Ehhhh. I'd buy a Sixknight.
