Both fellow Seibertronians Kurthy and Sabrblade were quick to tell us that Takara is continuing its Transformers Legends line stronger than ever with 3 new legends listings appearing on Bigbadtoystore:

LG47 Kickback & Crowbar

LG48 Gong (Brawn) & Repugnus

LG49 Targetmaster Triggerhappy

As we know from Kup and Hot Rod, the Triggerhappy being labelled as a Targetmaster means he will come with an additional targetmaster. Since there are no images, it is unknown who Crowbar is at the moment aside fromknowing that he is a Titan Master head.

These are coming out in October 2017.

Interesting... :-?

Very curious to see what they'll do with Triggerhappy and what if any Titan vehicle / weapon they'll include with him.

Going by the price and that they're calling him Targetmaster Triggerhappy, I'm going to assume he comes with a Targetmaster like Kup and Hot Rod.

Indeed its likely that's what that will be.

It will be like Hot Rod and Kup, with an actual targetmaster

Suddenly thinking Legends Triggerhappy may be in my future...

Being Takara I wouldn't put it passed them retooling Triggerhappy's hands so the targetmaster can plug in like the headmasters cartoon similar to Universe Cyclonus. Didn't do it to Rodimus and Kup(that we know, might be an Easter egg but not expecting it) but they weren't targetmasters in the cartoon like triggerhappy was. I could see it

Wait, Triggerhappy was a headmaster in Takara's story?

Aah, so they're not doing a boxset of all three Decepticon Targetmasters. Sweet; Triggerhappy's affordable then :D

Affordable, but still not cheap. it will still cost close to double the price I would pay for the Hasbro version.

I love that Takara is going the extra mile with the classic Targetmasters, giving them actual Targetmaster partners, but it's a bit disappointing that Blurr and Scourge missed out apparently missed out on this idea. Maybe Takara can release a multipack of just Targetmaster partners? Would be nice to have official weapon buddies for Legends Blurr and Scourge, as well as Unite Warriors Cyclonus.

Kapow currently has Legends Hot Rod and Kup at £35 RRP and have actually reduced them to £30 even though they're still in pre-orders, funnily enough. Looks fine to me.

Looks fine for you, sure.

But I buy my Hasbro deluxes for £8,44 at the most, so £30 is more than 3 times the cost. Instead of doubling up on Triggerhappy, I could get hasbro TR Misfire, Windblade and Topspin for the same amount.

My choice is very easy in that regard.

Very true, very true. Just for me it's not too terrible, especially when you chuck in the Targetmaster who is essentially a legion figure that becomes an awesome accessory, right? So £17 + £7 = £24... not too shabby.

Not too shabby in your siatuation,especially since Kapow deals with the importing already. I am assuming their £30 includes the taxes right? So yeah, i can see where you are coming from. But I am glad you can see where I am coming from too :)

Yeah, it's about £3 for shipping, but that's it.
By all means though, I really wish prices were a lot cheaper. I'm just not groaning at them because they're not much higher than I'm used to; just kind of conditioned to expect that price point especially when it's both a Takara import and including basically another half a figure. Still wanting to challenge this, but I'm not entirely sure how well I can do that while the screen says both "LG49 Targetmaster Triggerhappy" and "Add to Basket"...

Ok, are we sure the name is actually "Crowbar" and not a misreading? Just asking, as I'm not familiar with any character of that name aside from the Dread.

Could be, but until we get a look at the Katakana, I'm gonna guess Crowbar might be a G1-transplanted version of the DOTM guy redecoed from Sawback's Titan Master without the lion/shield accessory.

Since it's a Titan Master; I'm guessing it's Fangry, since Takara hasn't used that yet (plus he's from Wave 3 and they've used all the ones from Wave 1 and 2), he's a Decepticon which goes with Kickback, and his Japanese name is Croc, which I could see Crowbar being mistranslated from. At least more than Shuffler, Lione, Amhorn and Swoop.

Fangry in Japan was Wilder.
