You'd look derpy too, kid, if you'd taken a blow to the cranial tranceivers like I got from that unruly Skuxxoid on Gargana 7...

It's kinda a cool way to differentiate Scourge with the Sweeps.

I've been trying to figure out what the deal was with LG Rods hood flames... and BAM there it is.

A separate clear plastic piece. Interesting. :-?

Is it a separate piece or is the entire hood translucent and then painted? (Or maybe that's what you meant?) I think the "Headlights" are translucent. Also, it might partially explain the differences in Legends and TR Hot Rod hood transformations... :-?

I did mean a seperate piece, but it wouldn't really make sense as I can't think of any other examples of that, but millions of of examples of solid clear pieces painted up. So my money is on the latter.

Anyone care to speculate how Takara's version of PotP Rodimus will differ?

This looks like a case where the results will be fairly similar, especially as the last Hasbro shots shifted the elbows of the combined mode to red from orange.

I suppose the inner bot might have gray hands but they didn't do that in TR. I doubt they'll go magenta since the combined mode is Rodimus Convoy. Probably all maroon. Honestly, the inner bot looks more like Rodimus than Hot Rod. Maybe the AKOM crotch window painted white, two tone maroon head, no stickers?

I would've said maybe a Nemesis Rodimus...but that's never gonna happen! so probably what you speculated above ^

Nemesis Rodimus is rumored as a U.S. release similar to the Soundwave/Blaster and Overlord retools/redecos.

I could see Black Convoy as some kind of Asia exclusive.

I usually cap my Takara purchases at Deluxe scale. Hasbro Voyagers and up are generally close enough for me. I'd make an exception for Rodimus, particularly if the Hasbro version didn't have the black shins or did a particularly off-model deco. Right now, Hasbro PotP Roddy looks more than good enough but I'm trying to think whether there's something Takara could do to convince me.

Thing is, leader scales tend to get clearanced or coupons enough that I can see getting Hasbro's for $35-40. And my guess is Takara's will be upwards of $100 to import.

O....k...i had a senior moment there :WHISTLE:

BTW why Unicronus? shouldn't it be Dark Rodimus or something?

My guess is because the payoff to the Prime Wars was always going to be Unicron/Dead Universe themed. And so they want to seed Unicron back out there.

Prime Wars, taken together, can be seen as a soft reboot of G1, chronologically hitting the big stuff mostly in order. Hasbro side anyway.

My guess is that ends with Unicron's arrival. Rodimus falls to the dark side. Optimus Primal arises in his place. I figure the next step will tack Beast Wars/Car Robots/Unicron Trilogy elements onto the end of this neo-G1 continuity. I lean towards a Titan class Unicron hitting after PoTP. With a lineup largely taken from BW/CR/UT but with some familiar faces popping in like Wheeljack, Bumblebee, maybe G2 Dinobots redecos, etc. Maybe even RiD/Prime/Animated/Bayverse carryovers. Bludgeon, Lockdown, Armada Megs/Galv as leader scale.

Just my hunch. And they decided to seed Unicron's name here.

While this is currently still in rumour phase until we find proof from an official source, Planet Iacon are reporting on some recent additions to the Takara Tomy Transformers Legends line - with more Targetmasters joining the likes of Kup, Hot Rod and Windblade: LG64 Seaspray and Rione, LG65 Target master Twin Twist, LG66 Target Master Top Spin!

With current expected release in March 2018 and no images available yet, we will keep you update on the story as it develops.

Ha! Lione! I didn't think we'd see him in the Legends line. Neato!

The best mold in the line but with dudes that turn into guns? Sold.

Talking of the line; I'm pretty sure that's everything from Titans Return done now, isn't it? Barring any re-uses like G2 Megatron they want to do.

Seems like it. Though they never released Wilder (Fangry) as a Headmaster (his animal partner is getting packed with G2 Megatron). Which is odd because he appeared in the comics.

Ptero and his animal partner were never released, and I'm guessing the Lione that comes with Seaspray is the head. If that's the case the lion partner hasn't seen a release yet either.

Then there are retools of existing Headmasters (not talking about any vehicles or animals) that weren't released and likely won't be (Krok, Getaway, Shuffler Headmaster, Black Shadow, etc).
