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!

ScottyP wrote: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 :-?

What does he mean "design cues on Doublecross and Weirdwolf"?

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.

... I misspelled Pirahnacon.

:quoted on front page: :oops:

Edit: and again!? There's no "h"? Wow. Never noticed this until today.

Man Godbomber is so versatile, and well designed. If this is not released by Hasbro, I'll definitely be picking up the Takara version.

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.

I'm 100% sure this is becoming road ceaser. Get the CW Menasor cars, give them headmaster ports on the head platforms. ???. Profit.

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.

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:

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!

Who said anything about pack in comics?

;)

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.

Smart call! I totally didnt think of that but it looks like a possibility now.

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.

Though, the pic of the little Headmaster dude placed inside the missile launcher did bring back memories of Spock's "Wrath of Khan" funeral.

Also, that gaping mouth box art is so bonkers it's hilarious. :lol:

that, and they need to be a bit longer for combined robot

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?
