Fellow Seibertronian Sabrblade has made us aware of a translation for the manga that came packed with Legends LG-EX Blue Big Convoy. This is done by the same team behind the newly released Beast Wars Neo fansubs which can be found on youtube now.

Sabrblade wrote:Everyone, may I have your attention, please.
In anticipation of their long-awaited release of Beast Wars Neo in subtitled form (see here), Karyuudo Fansubs posted last night a full English translation of the Legends LG-EX pack-in manga that came with Blue Big Convoy.

This manga story serves as a bridging story that connects the end of Beast Wars Returns (Beast Machines) to both Beast Wars Second and Beast Wars Neo, with Page 1 taking place before Beast Wars Second and Page 2 leading into Beast Wars Neo.

While this story was posted in this thread previously with an English summary, this here is a full-blown English translation that makes things all the more easy to understand.

Is there a significance to Big Convoy inheriting his father's arm? Is it a reference to something?

Not sure, but it could signify having a piece of his father with him at his side.

You're welcome! We felt that including this story with the release of Beast Wars Neo was important as it connects everything together.

It would explain why Big Convoy's arms were always asymetrical when the rest of his body was not.

Ya know, I think you nailed it. I never noticed just how asymmetrical his arms were before.

I didn't even notice till last Thursday, it's strange that those are the only asymmetrical parts, usually the chest is asymmetrical if anything or at least an indication that the bot has some asymmetry

It's funny. If the Papa arm thing is meant to explain the asymmetry, then it's peculiar that Big Convoy is drawn with his arms obscured from view in the one panel he appears in that is set before he loses his arm. Meaning, we can't even see what he looked like before he lost his arm.

There is more subtle asymetry all across this figure (including the chest), I wrote about it when I included him in my top 5 shellformers list: https://www.seibertron.com/transformers ... oys/33329/

But the arm is the most asymetrical part. Maybe a quick news piece on the revelation could be fun.

I mean, it's a nearly 20 year old toy, I'm not sure it really needs a news piece

Not about the toy, about the fact that we actually have a fictional reason for it after all these years.

Eh, for fun, why not? I wonder how many people didn't even realize Big Convoy was asymmetrical

Ok ehm... To get this back on track a bit... I know! Anybody think we could expect more Siege or Select designs to pop up in there closer to the end? We got Cog, the Micromasters and Firedrive already, who could possibly be fitted in?

Depending on which previous Legends toy characters also appear in an epilogue chapter, I could see Sixgun and Brunt appearing alongside Metroplex and Trypticon.

Then again, whoever appears might also depend on whenever an epilogue chapter might see release. The Big Powered prologue came out on the day before the second wave (SG-08 to SG-14) of Takara's Siege line came out, so if an epilogue were to come out closer to a later wave's release date, we should keep an eye out for the following Japanese wave release dates:
  • May 31, 2019 - Wave 4: SG-20 to SG-24
  • July 27, 2019 - Wave 5: SG-25 & SG-26
  • August 24, 2019 - Wave 6: SG-27 & SG-28
  • September 28, 2019 - Wave 7: SG-29 to SG-32
  • October 25, 2019 - Wave 8: SG-33 to SG-35

We have now reached the end of an era.

The following is the final Legends manga chapter, simply titled Transformers Legends Final Story "Epiloge" (that is not a typo on my part, btw).

The Legends line is practically over,. The wider retail line was replaced during brand unification and now we see that even the exclusives are under the Selects line rather than the Legends EX line. With this end in mind, Takara has released their final chapter in the Legends manga and fellow Seibertronian Sabrblade sent that our way. This was published on their website.

Interpretation time!


Dai Atlas (in his five-Powered Master robot mode configuration) has struck down the Star Giant by completely bisecting it in half, killing both Dark Nova and G1 Megatron, as previously seen in Dai Atlas's pack-in comic. The survivors of the Legends World mourn the loss of G1 Megatron, as he had been a great and benevolent mayor to them. Optimus Prime appears to reassure them that Megatron's dying wish of having the Legends World restored will be fulfilled.

By the year 2039, Hot Rod does some stuff with Hooligan and Triggerhappy (whose Targetmaster partner Blowpipe is now drawn to match his Siege toy) and meets up with the Eldedroid-suited Daniel Witwicky, who informs Hot Rod about the discovery of a new energy source called Angolmois Energy. A grown up Atari Hitotonari works with who I presume to be an aged Chip Chase on the project working with this new "Gaia Energy" and the creation of a new line of Androids (including Artemis and Moon from Beast Wars Second). An aged Spike Witwicky is also present and, elsewhere, Soundwave and the Decepticons hold a press conference that mentions the Decepticons, the Autobots, Cybertron, the late Megatron, and the Legends World.

In space, Ultra Powered brings Perceptor and Windblade to the planet Zamojin to speak with Katsu Don about the possibility of recreating the Legends World. Katsu Don seems resistant to the idea at first, but seems to relent (need more clarification on this). Ultra Powered then heads to Planet Zone (but not before a brief flashback of Dai Atlas conversing with an injured Star Saber), where it is discovered that several beast-moded Microns (Mini-Cons) have been created from Protoforms that were exposed to Beast Power. These Mini-Cons are the ones from the Micron Booster 4 set that included ones with Maximal and Predacon insignia. Here, these Mini-Cons are used to explain the origins of the Maximal and Predacon insignia in the Japanese continuity. What's more is that the Beast Power granted these Mini-Cons the ability to scan organic lifeforms, explaining that bit of Beast Wars technology as well.

All five Powered Masters then transform into their Zone Base Modes to prepare for the recreation of the Legends World. A ceremony is held involving the direct interaction of at least Zodiac, Energon Z, Zamojin telepathy power, Beast Power, and the little Legend World version of Botanica. As Leo Prime and Rattrap watch the spectacle unfold, G2 Smokescreen and Dreadwing (in their upgraded forms) watch from afar, too ashamed of their previous siding with Dark Nova to interact with anyone else. However, they are approached by the surprising appearance of Devcon, who offers to let them join up with him and his pals, Slizardo and the Skuxxoid. Smokescreen is convinced (having previously worked with Devcon back when he, Smokescreen, was an Autobot) while Dreadwing seems hesitant. Smokescreen seems to reassure him and bring him over as well.

At last, the universe of the Legends World is reborn and Broadside carries its survivors over to the newly restored world, bringing them all home. In this new world, the people of the Legends World get right to work building a brand new body for G1 Megatron, restoring him to life. This new body of his is based directly on his Masterpiece MP-36 body. From here, life goes on in the Legends World as many of its people goes to see the new Bumblebee movie and love it! But then, Legends World Megatron comes running with some shocking news: G1 Megatron is planning to leave the Legends World!

The people of the Legends World are immensely sad to see their mayor wanting to back home to the G1 World, but Megatron is sympathetic and a heartfelt farewell is held in his honor, with everyone seeing Megatron off. Legends World Megatron is the most sad out of everyone, even thinking back to four different moments of G1 Megatron's time in the Legends World. but life must continue forward.

And so it does! Presented in the style of end credits, Pages 13-15 of this story show us glimpses of many more epilogues to other series, including:

  • The main Japanese G1 storyline, with Megatron reuniting with Optimus Prime and formally reestablishing the Cybertron Alliance (with Sakamoto sneaking some Power of the Primes toy cameos of Grimlock, Elita One, and Slash)
  • Kiss Players (sort of), with Marissa Faireborn, her daughter Sue, Atari, and Shaoshao, along with Hot Rod, Artemis, and Moon, in a sort of bridge to the Beast Era
  • Beast Machines, with Rattrap, Waspinator (happy at last), and the reborn Rhinox living peacefully on the Technorganic Cybertron and having a campfire celebration near Mount Megatron with Cheetor, Silverbolt, Nightscrean, Blackarachnia and Botanica, along with Obsidian and Strika looming in the sky above, making their way back to the planet
  • Prime, with Knock Out and Breakdown (still in his Unite Warriors toy body) working on new Decepticon armor from the Beast Hunters Cyberverse and Adventure toylines (making this the Japanese Prime/Go!/Adventure universe instead of the English one wherein Knock Out switched to the Autobot side)
  • Animated, taking place right after the BotCon 2011 and 2015 Season 3.5 fiction, with Slipstream (in her Legends body) teamed up with Swindle and a seemingly revived Starscream in what looks like a plot to spring Megatron's Decepticons out of prison
  • Car Robots, with Devil Gigatron combined with God Fire Convoy as the oxymoronically named Devil God Fire Convoy
  • Car Robots again, withe Black Convoy, Baldigus, and Dark Ai on some planet out in space
    Armada, with Alexis at the beach reminiscing about Starscream Super Mode
  • Leo Prime's personal story, with him also departing the Legends World to continue his adventures, seen off by the Legends World versions of Lio Convoy and Lio Junior
  • A Legends World homage to Beast Wars Neo, with Big Convoy's students all having their graduation ceremony, styled after the ceremony that was supposed to happen in the final episode of Beast Wars Neo
  • Another Legends epilogue, with Officer Ai trying to arrest Tarantulas, much to the confusion of the other employees at the Tera Kura Company (featuring the debut appearances of Rampage and Transmutate!)
  • And finally, a new beginning...
...in which a new employee comes to work at the Axalon Trading Company. He is the Legends World version of Depth Charge's shark drone (which was characterized as its own speaking character in the Japanese dub) and is a huge fan of Transformers: Armada. He is welcomed by the other employees, including a surprise appearance by Depth Charge!

In the year 2040 of the G1 World, Hawking (G2 Eagle Eye) and Magnificus bring the (still-living?) body of Skyquake to a secure area, where Assaultmaster (from the United EX line) is immobilized. A burst of energy shoots out from Assaultmaster's body and entering Skyquake. Magnificus places a cloak over the form of Skyquake, now inhabited by the Decepticon High Regent, Scrash.

But, the two leaders of the Cybertron Alliance, Optimus Prime and Megatron, arrive on the scene to engage these new enemies. Working together, they charge!


As the old saying goes, it never ends.
