TF Fans Sanchimaru and Jalaguy have put together a translation of the Unite Warriors Baldigus comic that was released a short while ago from Takara. This is very fun for western fans since it gives them a look at the Japanese G1 continuity which includes Car Robots (Robots in Disguise). Since Car Robots takes place in the future, this becomes a time travel story. Speaking of other oddities, this comic also has a "reunion" between Otpimus Prime and Roller, or at least Roller thinks so. It ends with a twist of Scourge stepping into the picture (which Scourge though?) and Galvatron revealing who he really is (but does it make sense?). Let us know what you think of the comic. And as a refresher, you will also find a translation for the Grand Galvatron comic to see if it helps understand this new comic (or not).

Note that this translation uses the English names and terms for the Car Robots characters and terminalogy (minus Brave Maximus and Fire Convoy), so there might some slight confusion in that regard (i.e. - RiD Scourge's Japanese name was Black Convoy, while UW Grand Scourge is already that guy's Japanese name).

@Will - Why is the Grand Galvatron comic (which take place three stories before the Baldigus comic) included?

For people to see how the galvatron revelation makes no damn sense, and for people to catch up on our roller convo ;) Also, because its a new translation we never newsed.

At the very least, the hands aren't like the original toy's G1-molded fists, which were solid pieces of hollowed-out plastic

Woah woah, wait. From reading these boards, I always thought hollowed out plastic was a recent thing and could not possibly have been found in the sacred G1 era.

Well, it is just Roller talking there. Doesn't give Optimus a chance to say anything more than his name. Maybe he's just a bit delusional

Indeed!

Plus, Will, were you not the same william-james88 who wrote this post about Wandering Roller being IDW Roller back around when the Grand Galvatron set was revealed? ;)


Yes that is me, but that was me before:
- it was confirmed that Roller wasnt Tarn
- I owne the toy
- I saw at what lengths you and Emerje would go to prove a point :lol:

Megatronia - http://imgur.com/a/WqIA9

Like the Grand Galvatron and Baldigus comic translations, these use the English names, so we got "Sky Reign" in place of "Lynxmaster" and "Optimus Maximus" in place of "Convoy Grand Prime".

I'm not quite sure how the first two are relevant? It's clear that while this is a version of IDW Roller it's not the actual main IDW timeline so what happens in that main timeline isn't really relevant. And I'm not sure how owning the toy changes anything?

Probably not, that one was a mess. The "urban camo" grey redeco on the other hand... :x

Besides, we haven't heard a peep from a possible Hasbro Blast-Off, and we already have an obligatory redeco: the G2 one.

Love the artwork in these comics.

I like how they make RID part of G1.

Car Robots, you mean. Car Robots is part of the Japanese G1 timeline, but the English RiD version is still its own non-G1 series. The English translation just went with the English names instead (save for Brave Maximus and Fire Convoy).

Sometimes you just feel the urge to make a point. But at least until the next comic or Sakamoto himself chimes in I'm going to put my side of the debate to rest. Not conceding or anything, it's just clear that we aren't going to change each other's minds.

I wasn't planning to buy Baldigus, I already have the Hasbro versions of the Combaticons and I'm very happy with them, but I will admit the set looks really good, and the Commandos do have a bit of nostalgia value for me because Ro-Tor and Movor were my first ever Decepticon toys (this was The EARLY 2000'S before I knew anything about G1, I was only familiar with Beast Wars, Beast Machines and RID 2001 at that point, so to me Decepticons were a new exciting thing). With that being said, Megatronia will probably still be the last Combiner I buy.

As for the comic, I think the twist of Galvatron being the the Car Robots Galvatron II wasn't necessary, it just screws up the continuity. However the coffee milk line on the first page did make me laugh.

That's not who Galvatron II is.

I just knew you'd post before I could so I refreshed the page first. :lol:

This is Galvatron II.

Interesting how the change of language/script makes a TF show a completely different thing. Like how the Unicron Trilogy is only a Hasbro thing. In Japan, Galaxy Force (Cybertron) is it's own independent continuity and not related to SuperLink (Energon).

For the rest of us, here's a pretty picture of the combined redeco of Bruticus, including gold paint and new faction symbol!

Oh man... wish I had the spare dough for that so much.

Galaxy Force was initially it's own independent continuity, but then halfway through they decided to mirror what Hasbro was doing for some reason and quickly hash it into being connected to Micron Legend/Super Link.
