Thanks to a Facebook post on the HK-TF page have have a pair of new magazine scans that show off the newly retooled parts on the upcoming Takara Legends Kup and Hot Rod! The scans show that Hot Rod's chest was the only piece redone while Kup has new arm parts and a new face, though the arms were not totally redesigned, just the shoulders and forearms.

Oh god why is Kup that bright teal colour in that shot showing the retooled pieces? You trying to start another argument, Takara? I pre-ordered the greyish one and that's what I'd better get.

The shots showing the retooled pieces are the Hasbro versions with prototypes of the new parts... >:oP

calm down people those are the prototypes, they literally just took hasbros figures and slapped the new parts on. These pictures are ment to show whats new, they arent the final product nor a variant.

The clear parts show what qas retooled.

Bright kup is u.s. version with altered parts to accommodate targetmaster.

But doed the takara version have a different face?

Yeah that's what I figured but wanted to get some clarification just to be sure else anyone else expected Takara may have gone with Hasbro colours after all :P

The grey and and clear unpainted parts, and yes, Kup has a new face plate. And I thought we all knew Hot Rodimus' chest was clear plastic (and not chromed!).

And allow me to point out a slight error, as the magazine has Hot Rodimus and Chaar share the same ID number, LG46. Hot Rodimus is LG45 :)

More than likely they figured Hasbro's faceplate wasn't a good enough fit for the cartoon.

He's just in a sorta lull, that quiet time between initial announcement and shipping to stores where there's not much to say. I believe BBTS had him slated for August, so we'll have more probably June or July?

Release date for Godbomber is in May. Late May according to AmiAmi No new photos have come up, but we already know what he looks like, and how he combines with Ginrai.

Not sure what more there is to show about him.

The sword's a too little pink for my tastes. Still looks fan-flipping-tastic, if I had any connection to the character I'd be all over this.

Wasn't planning on picking him up, but man is that truck mode gorgeous.

If he's not too expensive I may just cave in and pre-order him.
