We're a month away from the release of the Takara Tomy Mall exclusive Transformers Legends LG-EX Big Powered box set and it's making likely it's final live event appearance. Not only did the figures get a little display, but the real takeaway here is that we also got our very first look at the box art thanks to @brickonator on Twitter. Surprisingly they didn't seem to attempt to recreate the original box art or their positioning on the original box set. But the are is really nice as seen below.

The set, featuring a group of heavy Titans Return retools (more on that here), consists of Dai Atlas, Sonic Bomber, and Roadfire and will be released in March for 15,000 JPY. A photo of the display can be seen below from Twitter user @blackflameF50.

I'm loving this line of LG-EX releases and the ideas behind them, now with Amarda Optimus Prime joining the ranks, will they do an idea that's been tossed around since combiner wars and do an Energon Prime update with transforming drones?

If you pay attention to the wheels in the backpack and look at how wide Armada Prime's wheels are you'll know for sure ;)

All you did was confirm it's not, as they're not the same width. :P

Anywho, consider Star Convoy a maybe. This continues the retooling of molds to make the later G1 Leaders like Dai Atlas. I wonder who's next.

That was my intention ;)

Holding out to see starconvoys truck mode oterwise te encore release will do for me.

Big powered is going to be kind of dissapointing not having the three bots and the vehicle (6 figures) all in the box :P but looks nice and is definitely a buy.

Armada prime a deff, same with Blackarchnia but dreading the price and having to prioritise the possible Super7 Snake Mountain on top of all the rest of the beastwar MPS...Expensive year for sure.

You know, it just occurred to me that Armada Prime is probably a heavy retool of PotP Rodimus Prime, at least the trailer anyway, since both feature a smaller figure changing legs into arms.

It's possible they could share engineering, but I do not see any actual parts reused from Rodimus.

These "Big Power" figures look good for remolds but after just attempting to watch their show I couldn't get through half of it

The humans where are like little squealing rats.

Why the h3ll did they have to say "Transform" every 30 seconds?

Why are they able to slap around cape wearing Combiners and Citybots?

And why are Japan's versions all so goofy???!

......If I bought this set it would not regard this show in anyway. They'd be an Autobot faction similar to Wreckers and Dinobots and nowhere near as overpowered as they are in that show.

Yeah, that's kind of what I meant.


So it seems they are holding back the trailer and super mode for a future event or reveal.

In any case, think I can skip Star Convoy, and get an original or Encore release.

I'll wait for Armada though. He looks really nice.

It's strange the decided to go the route of separate figures, considering Armada Prime was a homage to Star Convoy. Long nose truck, treaded trailer, large robot that uses the trailer for legs...

Anyway, still love my Armada Prime to bits. Wish I had some space to display him.

I guess they are holding him back for when they can show him in color.

And what about Armada Prime? I mean the mold will appear in SIEGE or at least at some point in the WfC trilogy.

@Overcracker I hope you will have time to make some more reviews. I really like them ;)

Not sure Hasbro is bringing ay of these Legends figures over. But we'll have to wait and see. The 20 years of Armada is coming up.

As to the reviews, yeah, haven't had time to do any more. I'll try to get back into the swing of things soon.

Given this guys size, and about how big he would be in a (at this point hypothetical) super mode, it is entirely possible he could function as the Commander Class entry for next year. I certainly hope so.

For a trio I know nothing about, those dudes look fantastic. I canceled my Pre-Order only because of money concerns, but I sure hope they are still around when they release.

I was sold on these guys purely on looks alone, in spite of Zone being such a minor thing that even Japan mostly forgot about. Then again it help all three are retool of what I consider among the best molds Titan Return had to offer, so they're staying as pre-orders in spite of how much they cost.

Let's hold off until we see the actual trailer. I don't see any reused parts tho, tho I will agree that Hot Rod and Armada Prime have similar steps for their bigger modes.

It turns out the arms for the super mode are already part of the smaller robot and not in the trailer.

He was talking about the leg section alone, I dunno how they scale together, but I wouldn't be against it, anything is fine, so long as it's poseable

On a related note, is there any anniversary for armada or micron legend that hasbro would release this for? is 15th coming up soon? I feel like TT developing this from scratch just 'cuz seems a bit over the top, and I feel hasbro would be missing out on not using it :-?

15th was in 2017, 20th is coming up in 2022.

We did get CW Armada Megs and TR Tidalwave if you want to count that as Hasbro Celebrating Armada in some way.

I think Takara has better plans for this. We might yet see an Encore release of Super Convoy.

I don't see Hasbro bringing over Armada Prime outside of maybe in the SELECTS line if at all.

If anything, figures retooled from standard assortment figures like Big Powered and Star Convoy stand a better chance as they fit better in Hasbro's Size Classes ("Battlestar Optimus Prime" anyone?). TakaraTomy figures made from scratch tend to fall outside given limits, but one can hope the designers have some foresight when it comes to that.

The head of the smaller robot of star Convoy has been identified as an update to the original head of the G1 toy. Convoy evolves to star Convoy
