Courtesy of fellow user Cyberpath; we have some new details about some upcoming Takara Legends products according to Planet Iacon, specifically the changes from the Hasbro Titans Return versions of Bumblebee, Slugslinger, Perceptor and Octane.

Naturally all of them have new decos and as expected Slugslinger has a new-mold Targetmaster much like Misfire, Hot Rod, Doublecross and Kup; but of particular note are that the Headmaster for Octane and the Spike Headmaster that comes with Bumblebee are listed as new. Whether this just means new faceplates like with Legends Chromedome or completely new molds like with Legends Sixshot is currently unknown; but nevertheless, tell us what you think in the forums!

There's one on Shapeways but it requires painting it yourself.

Sweeet, was wondering when this'd happen. This'll make Perceptor perfect :)

Hmmm, maybe it means that he'll be packed with another Titan Master like the smaller figures have so far.


That might make sense -- though in that case, who would it be? I can't think of any significant human, nebulon or otherwise tiny partner of Octane in the cartoon unless they're making Sandstorm.

The head of Starscream's ghost? Or maybe Skuxxoid? :))

A word of advice: Don't cheap out on the material. Order in Frosted Ultra/Extreme Detail or Black High-Definition Acrylate if possible, White Strong and Flexible does not hold detail very well. And given it's a non-load-bearing detail piece, the increased strength of WSF is useless.

I can't be the only one assuming the Spike Titan Master is going to turn into Arcee's head, right? Were I not on mobile in between meetings I'd probably look at earlier replies and find this in a heartbeat, so it's OK to make fun of me if someone mentioned this like four posts ago :lol:

Shouldn't that be Daniel as Arcee's head? I think the supposition was Spike would turn into Cerebro's head so Japan could get the same Titan Master the US got with Fort Max. But, I do not recall seeing anything official for confirmation on this.

Bumble with Excel Suit and Spike


After 30 years the Autobots have managed to weaponize the most terrifying thing in Human History...

Microsoft :shock:

You're right. We can officially mark this down as the 98th time I've gotten them mixed up this year.

No worries. I'm the last one to harp on this sort of thing. :D
(But, related to that, I hope we do get a Daniel and Arcee. I think we had a rumor at one point. It would be cool to get the Spike Exo-suit with Arcee face for it...)

I wonder if the LG Sixshot would include Daniel Witwicky as a headmaster/Excel Suit as an additional set. :-?

Perhaps the new Headmaster for Octane just means a different little guy attached to the existing face.

It's kind of sad, but while everyone's getting all excited over the Targetmasters and Legends Sixshot and stuff like that, the thing I'm looking forward to most an underside shot of Roddy's car mode to use as a guide for modding my TR Hot Rod.

Maybe Takara just doesn't like the look of the Hasbro face and wants to make a new one, like what they did with Kup.

Here's the thing tho: there's nothing inherently wrong with it from what I can see. :-?

Yeah, with Kup the redesigned noggin was to better match the cartoon.

Unfortunately, we already know the full details of LG Sixshot and he doesn't come with anyone else :(

What I mean is, Takara might find the Hasbro face to be a little unflattering, and too stern-looking to match the more laidback and easygoing personality of Cartoon Octane, and so might want to make new face that looks more chill than this Grumpy Gus.
