Fellow Seibertronian Cyberpath has been keeping an eye on Takara Tomy's releases under the Legends line, and has spotted on site sponsor RobotKingdom's pages some new in-package images of the upcoming Headmaster sets for LG32 Chromedome, LG33 Highbrow and LG34 Mindwipe! We also get to find out the names of the drones that accompany the Titan Masters along with the deluxe body figures: the driller is Moguru, or "Mogul",the dino is Servant, and the car is Cargo.

Also, added in via the official Twitter account, is a group shot of the Autobot Headmasters, including Brainstorm, Hardhead and Cerebros. Check it all out below!

You know, I noticed a trend with the names of the Crashbash drone redecos:

バトラ batora: can be translated as "Butler"
サーバント sābanto: can translated as "Servant"

As in, they're based on words for service jobs. Anybody think those are the intended names, or if there's a pun behind it?

Those box art on the Legends packaging are really stunning! I wonder who is the Japanese artist responsible?

You mean Fortress. Cerebros is treated as a different kind of guy in Japan.

I wonder, might "Moguru" possibly be a portmanteau of "Mogura" and "Bīkuru" ("Vehicle"), as in the drill tank being a "digging vehicle"?

This is going to be the Arms Micron names all over again, isn't it? :lol:

Tankette and Cargo are relatively easy, being based on actual words. So we could assume the same for "Mogul" (though I have no clue what the word means). Rarigo, or Japanese "gorilla" spelled backwards, is clever, but "Batora" and "Sarbanto", ugh. You know, I'm gonna stick with Butler and Servant, unless there's a pun hidden somewhere.

And different ways of interpreting concepts. Let's not go there tho, point is we all understood which mold you meant, despite the different names used. :)

Ah well. They could handwave it as being a new look for him after the Blackballs incident.

Or could it be that the animation got the colors wrong? 8-} Remember how different Stakeout and Doubleclouder was different from the toy and the show?

Kind of out of character, Takara is generally very good with details and cartoon-accuracy. Maybe they thought that he'd look too much like "Stylor" with the all-red limbs. I might paint it myself after it gets here.

Or maybe the purple limbs were gangmolded with other parts on the Transtector that needed to be purple.

Either way, Sakamoto can justify the limb color change in the fiction if he feels a need to do so.
