Not only did we get a new look at Selects Super Megatron from Takara Tomy Mall but we also got another two part web manga furthering the story of Star Convoy versus Super Megatron and all his forms (the first part came be read here. To say there's a lot going on in this installment would be an understatement, it's almost overwhelming! To help make a little sense of what's going on I'm going to enlist a bit of help from Seibertronians JelZe GoldRabbit and Sabrblade from the forums further down below the images to help explain some of who and what we're seeing.

And Lucky Draw Primus makes a return.


And it all ends with a big "to be continued". Just when you think these manga can't get any crazier they find new ways to outdo themselves. As always let us know what you think of these new pages in the Energon Pub forums!

So, what are your bets people: next one is God Neptune set?

I was very curious who that red white and blue Sentinel Prime character was/is myself.

We can't quite see them close enough to make out the alt mode kibble for certain, so I could be wrong, but isn't the "blue Sky Shadow" the Legends Dai Atlas from last year?

Also, Emerje pointed out that the Primal Vanguard ship was also Astrotrain mold, so I went back and looked at it's previous appearance out of curiosity, and noticed that it's visible robot mode kibble includes non-matching colors on it's hands that match up with Omega Sentinel here (assuming I remember how this thing transforms correctly, I don't own this mold), which is an odd detail to include on a comic-only recolor we wouldn't ever see transform:
VanguardSentinel.png

So I'm going to go one further and say that they don't just share a mold, but that this new Omega Sentinel and that ship are one and the same.

Edit: Oh, and the last panel also includes a barely-obscured-by-shadows Scylla from the new Tentakil, so there's that set of repaints basically confirmed.

The mold is all Sky Shadow, especially in the gun shoulders that Dai Atlas doesn't have. The colors are his tho.

Right, she and the other Seacons (you can see some of their glowing eyes behind her) were in the same tubes Galvatron was in. Looks like they finally broke free. Probably no coincidence at all that they're "primitives" and in a panel next to Primacron. They're going to need a new Autobot to fight off all these new Decepticons, obviously Star Convoy can't do it alone. May be a good time to move Armada Convoy from concept to real figure.

I'm pretty sure someone on the Radicons custom page of TFW2005 had done a similar custom of Black Shadow as Dai Atlas a while back.

Just because we see things like that in the Legends comics regrettably doesn't mean we'll get them as official toys.

We've seen a repaint of Titans Return Hardhead with Getaway's Titanmaster as Bludgeon and Full Tilt with the Titanmaster from Quake as Sureshot but they were never released.

I like seeing G1 Rodimus Prime as Primus and his 'chariot.

I hate Primacron. He and Alpha Trion were everything that was wrong with the G1 cartoon.

It looks like King Poseidon has switched to fighting Megatron since he defends Star Convoy at one point, so now I think all faction allegiances are off here.

The bot kneeling down with Blue Big Convoy and Brainstorm looks to be G1 Skids. Red foot, black knee, door wing and shoulder wheel. It even has the little piece that hangs down on the end of the door wing.

Primacron mentions 'Big Ban' in one of last panels. Wasn't that an unused Transformer from Return of Convoy or something?

"Big Ban" is also the Japanese way of saying "Big Bang", which Primacron could simply be referring to the creation of the universe, as he also mentions Zodiac, the energy that has the power to create stars and planets.

Kinda figured, but I know these comics love to throw in a ton of references.

If it comes as a UW styled box set I'd be much more apt to get it, rather than 5 individual releases again, but I'm pretty much obligated to get all combiners either way...just pointing out my wishes/preferences. I would hope we get another heroic combiner before God Neptune however, or things will continue to get out of balance.

With what molds we have available, the only possible contender would be Road Caesar. Take Breakdown and Jazz as legs, a torso, and retool the lot of them :lol:

I'm sure Landcross would be easy enough as well. Sure one of them is a boat, but the rest are vehicles that are pretty easily repainted by past CW/PotP molds. I'm sure the boat could easily be remolded from something already existing. Either they could go the Liokaiser route and sacrifice a member, or just have 5 of them, and the 6th be modified as a weapon.

At one time I thought a new Road Caesar could actually include Star Saber as its voyager (go the CW Liokaiser route), but now that we have commander class figures I'd much rather see Star Saber & Deathsaurus as CC. Even still, you could add a couple new members to the Brainmaster team to make a 5 bot' Road Caesar.

Here's my idea tho: retool the torso in such a way it can form the arms as well. PotP Grimlock pulled that off rather nicely so can be done with proper planning.

This is pretty cool, they even cartoonified the characters.
