Sakamoto-senpai delivers again. I love the little "Blurr Transport" on the box in that one panel. Also, Godbomber looks like a metric tonne of fun. Violence Foot mode AND Headmaster compatibility fun? Hell yeah!

Oh boy I cannot wait for my Godbomber to arrive. Out of all toys I have and seen I think Godbomber may be the best valued toy. This guy cost me $110AUD and it has Headmaster gimmick, UW/CW gimmick with his two legs swappable with any UW/CW toys, its leader sized with 3 alt modes and can combine with Opti-I mean Super Ginrai.

I wonder if I can turn those thighs downwards when I have Godbomber combined. I could get my 2 Aerialbots and connect it there for extra thrust. This toy has so much play value for its price.

The pages - currently still in Japanese - show off Minerva, Godbomber, part of the Grand Galvatron and Megatronia teams - and the possibility for Godbomber to combine with those Combiner Wars / Unite Warriors limbs!
Possibility? No sir, reality! From https://twitter.com/hikui_low

Between this and some of the design cues on Doublecross and Weirdwolf, definitely feels like some pre-plannning for the "animal" combiners like Abominus, Pirhanacon, and Predaking may be going on :-?

Combiner Ports on Takara Tomy Transformers Legends LG-42 Godbomber

Postby Va'al » Fri May 26, 2017 6:53 am

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Thanks to Twitter user hikui_low, and fellow Seibertronian ScottyP, we have photo proof that Takara Tomy Transformers Legends LG-42 Godbomber does indeed allow for Combiner Wars / Unite Warriors compatibility, as shown in the comic scans that came with the figure! Also included below are some additional shots of the toy, and how it combines with Super Ginrai. Check it out!

I suppose in that they share unique alt-mode shapes with combiner limbs we have yet to get - it would certainly go some way in explaining the rather random inclusion of Twinferno in the line.

Man Godbomber is so versatile, and well designed. If this is not released by Hasbro, I'll definitely be picking up the Takara version.
I enjoy asking questions, and always have. Please take no personal offense when I do. It's not about justification, is about acquiring knowledge.

Given how the current team at Hasbro has noted that they're thinking ahead as they design figures, it is conceivable that this is the case.

And when I look at the Titans Return beast figures, I can see where chest pieces could be replaced with combiner ports without too much hassle.

And more food for thought - it's preferred to get a few remolds/repaints out of a figure to get their money's worth, while Weirdwolf and Doublecross have not been remolded (yet).

Apex Armor will be the same as Godbomber (with more decos and guns, like Magnus Prime) in one of those :HASBRO: boxsets, we will just wait soon until the final wave of Titan Return is released

This isn't confirmed or even hinted at yet, I'm afraid.

Meant to come in and clear this up but WeatherManNX01 pretty much nailed it, so thanks for the assist!

In a little more detail, we can look at Weirdwolf:
Image
Does it need remolding? Yes, but if you look carefully, the parts that make the Headmaster attach are a separate piece. Take that out, do some minor rework for the port, add a new head, add Doublecross' arms, do some other minor retooling, then tweak the colors just slightly = oh look, Sinnertwin. Doublecross' body style is very Rippersnapper-like in stature, so again just some arm piece swapping and retooling for the Terrorist Shark head. Need a weird shrimpy body for Blot? Hello, Mindwipe, who also has some stuff one could use on a Cutthroat. The only missing piece is the torso, and boy howdy does Godbomber have a big blocky chestplate like Abominus. Not sure how you'd get a Hun-Grr out of the rest but he is parts-formery, so there's that.

william-james88 wrote:I didnt know that the unite warriors comics and legends comics were related :-?
There aren't really pack-in comics for Unite Warriors, just a single image for each set drawn in the same style as the back page of the instructions. That said, it's still Sakamoto doing it and he's tried to make it all work together. An example from the galleries:
Image


Also this latest Legends comic has me wishing I'd picked up the CM Corp Nightbeat version of Minerva back when it was dirt cheap. Just did the regular Minerva and Ginrai releases.

:looks at ebay:

Scratch that regret, bought this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/152531635592 Anyone want the regular one for cheap? Don't need a second!

But yeah, I didnt know they were releated, since one takes place in the Legends Universe and the other is a sequel to JG1. So seeing Armada Thrust cross over is fun.

i have a feeling on who the pack in headmasters for Bumblebee and Seaspray might be when they are released. Bumblebee most likely will come with the US Cerebros head who is Spike for obvious reasons. But for Seaspray, I'm thinking Minerva repainted from Ptero and maybe using parts from Goshooter or Nightbeat. I just think Ptero's face would make for a good Minerva

Same. I'm just waiting for BBTS to list the Magnus Prime set. I hope there is a Hasbro release of God Bomber / Apex Armor. Seems like a waste if there isn't, and I'm afraid getting the Takara version at that point would be pricey.

What about when the Legends versions of Gelshark and Black Convoy (Sky-Byte and Scourge) showed up in the second UW Baldigus comic following their respective Legends comics?

Nightbeat never had a direct Japanese counterpart, neither did Siren or Hosehead, or the rest of the Headmaster Jrs. and Pretenders for that matter. They were all reimagined as new unique characters for Masterforce. For all intents and purposes, Nightbeat's "counterpart" would be Minerva, on the same note Siren's would be Goshooter.
HOWEVER, this is a rather clever reference to a mailaway version of Minerva done in US Nightbeat colors, called Minerva Nightbeat (Goshooter had one too called Goshooter Siren). Apparently it's been repurposed as an alternate, evil version of Minerva, using the generic mass-produced Nightbeat suit.
The resident Rewind... well, half of one :lol:
