Both site sponsors BBTS and TF Source now have this set available for preorder for $159.99 USD.

Here are the listings:

BBTS: https://www.bigbadtoystore.com/Product/ ... ails/81630
TF Source: https://tfsource.com/legends-series/lg-ex-big-powered/

Since thes are LG-Ex figures, they will not be available from Japanese retailers like HLJ or Amazon Japan.

This set comprises of Dai Atlas, Sonic Bomber and Roadfire, which are all very heavy retools of the Skyshadow, Misfire and Twin Twist figures released last year. How heavy? Well, we laid out some images below for you tom compare between the original mold and the new toys we are getting. You will also see what the original G1 toys looked like, to see how faithful (or not) these new designs are to them. You can compare between robot modes, alt modes and even base modes. Most G1 images come from this blog post by fellow Seibertronian Scotty P.

Not sure how they would pull that one off. Plus making an Autobot leader doesn't guarantee we will get his Decepticon counterpart. My Masterpiece Star Saber is still waiting for a proper Dezarus (I'm not counting that awful Sky Lynx repaint) to do battle with & Fort Max & Grand Max really need Scorponok & Black Zarak to go on shelves next to them.

As long as it took to get A new Trypticon, I think we can expect to wait much longer for a Violen Jiger. But I would be glad to be wrong on that one.

Earlier in the thread it was confirmed that they were headmasters.

^The closest thing, without making a completely new toy would be that awful Alpha Q toy from Transformers Energon, and we definitely don't need to see that again. Some 3P company might come up with something interesting. Besides, since the Zone Manga isn't available in English, I don't know if Violenjiger was ever fully shown beyond his nebulous 3 faced form.

I want to know how well put together the combined mode is.
The decepticon power master brothers, their combine vehicle mode was a horrible joke in the last line.

Got my pre-order in. If it's anything like Greatshot I'll find a US seller on eBay with the set in hand before BBTS gets it in.

There have been pictures of the heads. You can see them here

You do know why that is, yes?

I do not
The little guys are the characters' real selves in Japan, not separate-character partners. In this case, Dai Atlas and co. are the small guys while the larger ones are just lifeless bodies they control.

It wouldn't make sense for the little guys to look like Speeder, Sonic, and Drillbuster when they're supposed to be Dai Atlas, Sonic Bomber, and Roadfire themselves.


Didn't stop the Decepticon Targetmasters from looking like Blowpipe ;)

Pre-ordered so hard! I cannot wait to get this set, it is full on amazing, I can't believ how far they went to make thi set, they're all basically new figures now :shock:

I have but one criticism on this set which, otherwise, will be a goddamn LANDMARK in terms of CHUG releases: I really, really wish they had found a way to integrate even the crudest of waist joint on Dai Atlas as the lack of a waist joint is the only crippling weakness on the Sky Shadow/Overlord mold.

Both the Zone manga and story pages have been available in English for about a decade, translated by Hydra and originally hosted at TF Pulp, but now hosted on Allspark.com:

Foreword by Kaneda Masumi
Zone Story Pages #1
Zone Story Pages #2
Zone Story Pages #3
Zone manga chapter
Zone Story Pages #4
Zone Story Pages #5
Zone Story Pages #6
Zone Story Pages #7
Zone Story Pages #8
Zone Story Pages #9
Zone Story Pages #10
Zone Story Pages #11
Zone Story Pages #12

Also available on TFArchive are the two Zone catalog stories, with English-translated descriptions for each, translated by DrSpengler. Though, while the first one takes place at the very beginning of Zone before all of the above content, the second one is kinda overridden by both the Zone episode and manga chapter, as it presents an abridged alternate take on the events of the episode/manga chapter:

Zone catalog story 1
Zone catalog story 2

They're mostly in a rebuilding phase at this stage.

Fun fact: Aside from Scorponok/Black Zarak and Piranacon/King Poseidon, all the other 'Nine Demon Generals' now exist in Generations form. Meaning that while Valium Chugger Violen Jiger is still absent in toy form the other antagonists of Zone can be displayed versus Dai Atlas!

Now all they need are some capes... ;)

You and me both: this trio is made from some of my favorite molds. But seriously, now that friggin' ZONE of all things get some love from Takara, what's next? Will we see Sky Garry and Grandus? Big Bang? Star Convoy? :lol:
