Only slightly annoying. We've waited this long, another week isn't going to kill any of us.

There's always one in every crowd :roll:

But delayed by a week isn't really that bad, usually it's 3 weeks to a month AFAIK.
The resident Rewind... well, half of one :lol:

I can wait. I'm excited. I've handled a friend's God Bomber, it looks sweet and that extra chrome is going to make a great centre piece for my accidental Masterforce shelf. And Cab's transector is made and waiting for him. Love these little headmasters.

I'm leaning toward picking up LG-52 Misfire. I've used Anime Export exclusively, but that's no longer an option. What's the next best option with the other import sites? Especially considering quality of service since I assume price is more or less the same.

Here's the three I deal with most:

AmiAmi - 3,040JPY
HLJ - 3,200JPY (pre-sold out)
Hobby Search - 3,400JPY

All have great customer service and similar shipping costs.

Thanks Emerje. I was thinking about AmiAmi. May pick up a Sharkticon while I'm at it.

Who are you using for Cab's Transector? I've got my Minerva Ready, but I can't think of anyone that would have worked for Cab.

BTW, is the head master for God Bomber supposed to be Shuota or did they make up a new one for him?

I've customised a CW Hotspot. There's a part on shapeways that makes the figure Titan Master compatible. If you want less work, you can wait till POTP wave three and get Inferno, he's basically a red Hot Spot from what we've seen in leaks. But I got a second HS very cheap in a deal.

Shuta came with legends Wheelie. Also a part on shapeways to convert the generations Shuta figure/Nightbeat figure into titan master compatible. The only Headmaster Jr Takara haven't released yet is Wilder.

The neck attachment is that the one you glue on? So you would need to cut off the neck ball joint and glue it in place right?

Oh no. It's this one.

https://www.shapeways.com/product/3A37C ... arketplace


No cutting at all, just unscrew everything in the torso to seperate it out into many pieces, slide the whole head and neck out, slide the new part in and screw it all back together. No glue, no cutting, and completely reversible.

To keep this on topic, then you can just pop Cab's titan master straight into the socket and boom. You have yourself a Cab in full robot mode.

Cool, thanks. I actually just ordered the Wheelie so I can get Shuta as well. I think I'll wait for the inferno to do this, but I'll have to order the part.

Now I feel like I need to find a way to turn the other Combine parts into Titan Masters to make a God Force Combiner. :D

That looks amazing! Gotta admit, the boxing for G1 was the first thing that drew my eye as a kid. Then it was the detailed toy inside.

It's the reason I bought the Legacy book. So many awesome memories brought up from that book!

Stock Images for Takara Tomy Transformers Legends LG50 Sixshot, LG51 Doublecross, LG52 Misfire, LG5

Postby Va'al » Wed Nov 22, 2017 8:00 pm

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Courtesy of HoobySearch and the Japanese online retailer 1999.co.jp, we have some clear and shiny stock images for the Takara Tomy Transformers Legends line, bringing some of the later hitters of the Hasbro Titans Return figures - as well as some of the bigger ones - to Japanese audiences and their market: LG-50 Sixshot, LG-51 Doublecross, LG-52 Misfire, & LG-53 Broadside!

Sixshot is the notable exception to the packaging pattern we've seen so far, sporting a bit retro-styled box with all modes shown on the artwork, including the clearly-a-submarine-and-not-an-upside-down-gun. The other three, each with Targetmaster partners (in the case of Misfire and Doublecross) or a 'drone' for the Titan/Head Master (in the case of Broadside, who carries Repugnus with him), come in the regular clear window boxes seen so far in the line. Check out all the images below, and let us know what you think of the new decos in the discussion!

Word has it that Broadside's Partner Drone is named "Repug Armor" ("Repug" is Repugnus's Japanese name), and that Doublecross bucks tradition by having his Headmaster actually being White Leo instead of just Doublecross himself, meaning that White Leo is a separate individual and partner to the still-living Doublecross a la the Western-style Headmasters instead of the Japanese-style Headmasters.

The reason Sixshot gets special packaging that homages his G1 packaging is because of his being the milestone LG50.

He's a pinkish colored jet who doesn't care what others think about him, unlike Guyhawk, who feels the need to have "Guy" in his name so there is no confusion.
