Takara released instructions for the new LG-63 G2 "Hero" style of Megatron that features the optional choice of sticker of "Megatron Rules!" for their upcoming Legends release. You can check it out in the image below, but it will feature the G2 Decepticon logos as well from the US release. Also, anybody notice the two Predacon Beast Wars stickers there too? They are for the Titan Master or rather Headmaster here. The headmaster for this release is painted to resemble Beast Wars Megatron and the partner of course is meant to resemble Savage/Noble of Beast Machines fame.

The options for customization are your's of course in any case. You can go for a G2 approach or you can go for the Beast Era approach. You can find the instructions for LG63 G2 Megatron as well as the LG62 Targetmaster Windblade and LG 61 Clonetron sets.

Judging from the kill tally marks, I don't think Megatron actually knows how to keep tallies :-?

While Titans Return is all but over in the United States, it's Japanese counterpart, Takara Tomy's Tranformers Legends line, is still in full swing! The latest wave is starting to trickle on to store shelves, which means there's quite a few new In-game images to cover! All coming from the Hong Kong Transformers Facebook group, there are new images of all the most recent releases: LG-57 Octane with Ghost Starscream, LG-54 Bumblebee with Spike, and LG-56 Preceptor with Ramhorn. The photos all showcase the new figures nicely, and they help illustrate the diffe rences in deco (and sometimes molding). They also show how the Spike headmaster that comes with LG-54 Bumblebee looks on Cerebros! Check all the photos out below!

Check it out, Spike's Cerebros head (which is a new face mold different from Hasbro Emissary's Cerebros head) has been color-matched to Takara Fortress's body.

I would honestly expect nothing less from Takara.

Consequently, it also reduces any chances of Takara ever doing any kind of release of a Rebirth-accurate redeco of Fortress as Cerebros.

Pretty sure they're too big to go on the Headmaster. Since the Headmaster is Beast Megatron that would make this his Transtector, effectively making this Beast Megatron as a tank rather than G2 Megatron if you so choose, hence the stickers. The sticker sheet also says right on it to basically stick them wherever you want.

And finally -- Sixshot. Probably the one I was least excited about when I had pre-ordered the last batch. Maybe because he was the most expensive of the lot and appeared in only one scene, and he's basically just a gimmick -- i.e. his alt modes aren't "real" proper things, most of it is just his limbs arranged in different configurations.. wheels forward, wheels backwards, forearms to the side, to the back etc. But somehow, he turned out to be the most exciting in-hand!

I've had the original for years, it feels so refreshing and a little weird to finally have basically the same thing with proper articulation (the original was a BRICKKKK) and two guns (my G1 was missing a gun.) Although they look somewhat puny, the ones in the boxart look so much better. (Does anyone know where I can download free printable files for Transformers? Can even be generic guns/blades that fit the standard holes.)

As a Leader Class he towers all the Deluxes which suits me, because he was a Skyfire-type of giant in his one scene in Rebirth. And he fits pretty well with Ultra Magnus if I want Headmasters continuity.

I love that the Headmaster gimmick is optional here, wish that was the case with the Targetmasters. Although his Titan Master being a mini version of himself is kinda cute. (Didn't mention it before, but Misfire's TM also has nice paint.) Too bad he doesn't come with a miniature version of his gun-mode. And speaking of his gun-mode... I know they try to pass it off as a "submarine" but if you collapse the legs there's actually a trigger! (see one of the images.)

My favourite part of his transformation is how the chest-wing things are stored in his torso. Love the silver paint on his wings, hope the paint doesn't come off. So nice! (btw, do you think unpainted white plastic is still prone to yellowing?)



Image
Surrender, Sixshot! The magnetic device I've placed on your chest will atomize you if you try to remove it without the proper pass-code -- which only I know.

You'll need a computer on par with Teletraan II working for days to crack the code! You may possess the superior firepower, but I possess the superior intellect. You're done.

Oh, this device you mean?

The yellowing is always a hit and miss. It's great you are now enjoying his royal awesomeness that is the Takara Sixshot. And the added knee stubs. The headmaster is unpainted this time compared the Hb which is all the good to avoid paint chipping. For me, the face and the added paint apps enhanced all those details on his robot back really did the base mold justice. :x

Also, the entire package of Takara's last Legends release for 2017 will be costing me at US$120 damage(Spike in his Excel Suit and his interactivity as Cerebros.......how Sakamoto is going to shoe horn this given that the Headmasters from Nebulos also made an appearance in the Legends Universe will sure be a stretch)

Just realised something -- you can transform LG52 Misfire without detaching his head! And the Titan Master legs can even function as landing gear! Since he has none.

Can't be done with Triggerhappy because he has a more "sophisticated" transformation than Misifre.

For those concerned over the morals of the Tf buying customers ( i.e. Sakamato's use of a lot of battle damage scenes for the female protagonists in the Legends universe manga), either Takara has more faith in the maturity of the 15 years up target demographic than the gaijins give them credit for. (see attached image)

So kiddies, don't gift them kids below 15 this product or there'll be heck to pay.....Primus is watching!

I don't think the hubbub over the "fan service" in the Legends manga is only out of concern for any children who might be reading (though, that's still a good reason itself). It's exploitative of women in general, and tolerance for this kind of stuff is at an all time low in American culture right now. Yes, I know that the Legends managa are written for a Japanese audience, and their tastes and tolerances may be different, but western fans are being exposed to this too, regardless of authorial intention. There is going to be backlash, even when adjusting for cultural considerations and context. Just understand that this is simply not the kind of stuff a lot of people appreciate right now, even if they're only "accidentally" being exposed to it.
