Grab your snorkels and floaties kids, because thanks to our own Sabrblade we've been notified that Ben's World of Transformers has posted an English Translation for the comic included with Turtler, the captain of the new Transformer Generations Selects Seacons, and we're diving in!

As Sabrblade has been a long fan of the Legends Manga and associated comics we've included his summary of the issue here. He gives a great break down of where the story has been so far:
"This comic follow on directly after the end of the previous Star Convoy comic, and kinda jumps around from flashback to present to flashback to present rather than flowing chronologically. Also, unlike most Japanese manga, this comic reads from left-to-right.

To help better understand this comic, back in the Star Convoy comic, Convoy (Optimus Prime) and Galvatron were pulled into another dimension by Primus, who showed them their future deaths that awaited them (in the Headmasters cartoon) as well as a future enemy that was coming to attack this world. Convoy accepted his fate and resolved to save this world from said enemy, being temporarily upgraded into Star Convoy to drive the enemy off. Thus, Convoy was sent back to his homeworld while Galvatron, who had not accepted his fate, remained behind, seeking a power of his own to avoid his fated death."

"Galvatron is happened upon by this world's version of Turtler and Halfshell, who are space pirates and not subordinates of Galvatron. They offer to make a deal with Galvatron that will give him the same power that Convoy had received, in exchange for their extracting the Angolmois Energy from within Galvatron (which he has since he was originally upgraded by Unicron). Galvatron reluctantly agrees and, while he is in stasis, Halfshell uses the extracted Angolmois Energy to upgrade Turtler into a new form (based on the look of his new Selects toy), dubbing him the new "King of the Seacons."

Unless they do an Ultra Megatron at Leader size its going to be funny to match him up against Star Convoy when he is one size class too small.

Alternatively, to mention Galvatron and Angolmois Energy to me, signifies perhaps a new toy for this guy:

:lol: Better he become another Galvatron, than degrading him to something inferior...

Technically there is nothing which says his Super Megatron form is weaker. It just seem to imply his appearance and personality are reverted to his Megatron self. This isn't the Unicron trilogy where a 'Galvatron' is just a repaint and upgrade to his Megatron state. :roll:

It's not about weakness. My first foray into Transformers was The Movie, wherein to the bright eyes of a 3/4yo, Galvatron was superior to Megatron in every single way. For the most part, Simon Furman agrees with that too. There is only one consistently good Megatron (Yesss) and he was never associated with a Galvatron.

Amusingly that Megatron went through two upgrades (that weren't cheap repaints!) in the span of a single show yet never felt the need to rename himself.

It is weird. You would have thought, given the context of the change, that TM 2 Megatron would have been renamed or renamed himself?

It's a matter of marketing. The Megatron name is popular and profitable.

The only reason the original Galvatron upgrade was such a big divergence in appearance and name was because Hasbro wanted to keep his being an upgraded Megatron in the movie a secret since they knew the toy would see release in stores before hit theaters (and because they didn't yet know how marketable and iconic their characters were at the time).

So I re-read the comic properly now and Galvatron is losing the Angolmois energy he has in him (presumably it was infused into him when he became Galvatron, which make sense). This does make sense for him to revert into some other form of Megatron. A form of Megatron which is still more powerful than his original form but not twisted and corrupted into the Unicron-created maniac that is Galvatron.

This also make the figure being a retooled Galvatron even more meta. :APPLAUSE:

Albeit, this transformation into Super Megatron will only be a temporary thing since Galvatron has to get back to his own universe in his Galvatron form in order to still be Galvatron when he partakes in the events of The Headmasters.

Posted to the TakaraTomy Mall are the two new issues in the Seacon Manga saga! This time Star Convoy is soaring in to lay down his Matrix upgradable justice on those pesky piranha pirates. Will his Matrix powered rifle be enough to stand against the combined might of these salty scallywags?

These have not yet been translated to English but if the last issue was any indication the translation can't be far behind. Enjoy the images below, and you can click on each to take you to the original PDF at TakaraTomy.

Thanks to Snakas Blog, we have word that the next chapter of the King Poseidon manga is now available to read! The manga, which continues the adventures seen here, picks up with Star Convoy, based on his upcoming Takara Selects figure, doing battle with the assembling Seacons and the combined King Poseidon form. Important to note is that King Poseidon is based on his Masterforce depiction, where the limbs were just drones and not individuals and showed up in bulk mostly just to be destroyed.

The below manga is in Japanese, but we can expect some sort of translation in the coming days.

Check it out below, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!

I Can't read a lick of it, but I don't have to to understand everything and know the Piranhaclones just peeved Star Convoy the heck off.

On a side note, did Star Convoy show up in animation at all?

Nope. His series, Return of Convoy, came out in 1991, one year after the last piece of Japanese G1 animation, Zone, would be released on VHS in 1990. Star Convoy only got to appear in story pages and just one manga chapter (until the 21st Century, that is).

I'm hoping he ends homaged or used in more, i love his design. And he has the best Optimus head (which is why it was used on the BattleCore Prime and is my favorite)
