Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
It's been a couple of years since we last saw one of these, as Tayo Tosho took over from Million Publishing, but we now have news of a new Transformers Generations book for 2018! Featuring cover art by Nakamura Tsuyoshi, and sporting Takara Tomy Legends LG45 Targetmaster Hot Rod facing off against several Decepticons, including upcoming G2 Megatron and Savage Noble from the same line - and no word so far on a toy exclusive, even with a release date of November 20. Check it out from site sponsor HobbyLinkJapan and online retailer Amazon.co.jp!

Shouldn't Megatron be a lot bigger than Hot Rod?
I have anxiety, depression and aspergers syndrome so my behaviour can be erratic. I don't mean any offense to anyone. I'm just very picky about my Transformers collecting. You're all cool! :)

Likes: Movieverse ('Bayformers' are my fave Transformers), Marvel UK G1, most Marvel US G1, 1986 animated movie (more for style & soundtrack rather than Star Wars-rip off plot).
Dislikes: TFA, G1 cartoon, IDW G1, BW/BM, MP. The entire concept of Autobot Megatron.

Perspective. If you look closer at the positioning of Megatron's arm above Hot Rod's, it becomes clearer that he's a bit bigger. I do wish it was made a bit more obvious though.

This is weird. I've been able to sign into Amazon for Other countries with my US Log in, and yet I can't do it with the one from Japan. Does anyone else have this issue?

Tayo Tosho/HeroX Transformers Generations 2018 Preview Featuring Overlord and Bumblebee

Postby Qwan » Fri Nov 03, 2017 2:30 am

Motto: "There's no such thing as a no-lose situation, but if you try your hardest, you'll lose the least."
Weapon: Hand-Mounted Lasers
Thanks to a tip-off from fellow Seibertronian Cyberpath, just under a week after the cover was revealed, we now have a preview image of Tayo Tosho's and HeroX's new Transformers Generations book for 2018! Shared by HeroX's Twitter, the image features Overlord, well, lording over a fleeing Bumblebee. Both characters are based on their Titans Return toy designs - more specifically the Takara Legends takes on the figures, LG54 and LG60 respectively.

Check below for the image, and a machine translation of the accompanying tweet from HeroX. The book is set to release on November 20th, just under four weeks from now, so don't forget to preorder it from site sponsor HobbyLinkJapan or Amazon.co.jp if it catches your interest!

Hello, hero X is. Launched 11/20 and we 校了 book "Transformers 2018'! Immediately promise last week of street, draw recorded capitalised comics immediately from the show. Naoto Tsushima teacher "Transformers Allspark EPISODE10'. The new character!

Image

Fellow Seibertronian, Cyberpath, pointed us in the direction of yet another preview from the Generations 2018 book. This one features LG45 Hot Rod, LG55 Slugslinger, LG57 Octane, and LG65 Twin Twist.

New Preview of Tayo Tosho/HeroX Transformers Generations 2018 Book

Postby Va'al » Sat Nov 04, 2017 3:47 pm

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
In the continuing teasing that HeroX are bringing us for the Generations 2018 book - featuring art by IDW occasional Naoto Tsushima - and the likes of Takara Tomy Transformers Legends figures LG45 Hot Rod,LG55 Slugslinger, LG57 Octane and LG65 Twin Twist! The art below is just a quick look at some of the interior pages, we still have no idea if an exclusive figure will also be released to accompany the book as with Million Publishing, and the machine translation of the HeroX tweet makes very little sense. Nonetheless, take a look!

Hello, hero X is. Continuation, launched 11/20, drawn by the book "Transformers 2018's capitalised comics immediately from the show. Cybertron mission scenes from TF comics legend of crossing the street e., teacher "transformerlegends"!

More Tayo Tosho/HeroX Transformers Generations 2018 Book Previews

Postby Va'al » Thu Nov 09, 2017 8:24 pm

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
We appear to have a new handful of preview pages from the upcoming Tayo Tosho / HeroX Transformers Generations 2018 book, as well as a repeat of the cover (by Takeshi Nakamura) and the Legends manga images we have already seen, directly from the HeroX site!

The only issue is that the images are extremely small, with no real chance of magnifying - that said, we get a tiny preview at the Legends line, with the counterparts to Titans Return Triggerhappy, Kup, Perceptor and more; there's a Lost Age section (Age of Extinction), with the oversized Grimlock, the simpler figures and the main line itself, including a profusion of Optimus Primes, the Platinum Dinobot set and an Ark cut-out playset; a secret Masterpiece section, which may or may not have something to do with MP-41 Dinobot; a process and design section, featuring Legends / Titans Return figures. Check them all out below!

It's only been a handful of days since the new Transformers Generations 2018 book was released, and already we have a full video breakdown of it! The video, while in Chinese, shows off the catalogue in its entirety very nicely, and gives us some good looks at the latest and greatest toys from Hasbro and Takara! Almost (if not) every figure from the past few months is shown to some degree in the book, including Grand Maximus, Masterpiece Dinobot and Sunstreaker, and Legends Greatshot! The book also features some neat behind the scenes shots of the design process of toys like Titan Class Trypticon, Six Shot, and Overlord! We've taken some screenshots of the video, but they only show a fraction of the content included, so we recommend watching the nearly feature-length tour through the book embedded directly below!

Because while hasbro chooses and designs the characters Takara are the ones who handle a lot of the engineering for them. It’s not a surprise he’s in there

Isn't this basically piracy? How is this video different from scanning it and uploading those scans, quality/medium aside? I'll just wait and look through it when I have a copy.

Not a surprise indded, the Generations books are de facto Transformers yearbooks, usually showing all global releases and not just Takara Tomy's output. Of course, I didn't watch the video and haven't picked one of these up since Taiyo Tasho took over the publication so maybe that's outdated knowledge.

The 'review' aspect may make it fall under fair use, but it is a very grey line I'll admit (and I'm not sure how it works with a Chinese video of a Japanese book on a US site). :-?

In case we're asked, we will obviously remove the story. :)
