Rattrap returns to the Axalon with the Monsterbots in tow and tells the other Legends World evacuees where and when they have landed, but the explanation is interrupted when a gigantic object enters Beast's atmosphere: the Nemesis, a giant starship constructed by Galvatron II to drain the planet of its Beast Power. Initially surprised by the ship's appearance in the wrong era, Leo Prime realizes that while he knew its creator was a "Galvatron", he had mistakenly assumed it to be his era's Galvatron. Galvatron deploys his Decepticon army and a battle breaks out when the now allied Beastformers and Laser Beasts arrive to defend their world, led by Queen White Lune who speaks of a prophecy claiming White Leo and Tigerburn will return during a great crisis. Indeed, the two break out of their crystal prison and join the fray, much to the joy of Doublecross who was unable to battle in robot mode without Leo as his Headmaster. Grotusque is similarly afflicted, so Lione voluntarily re-merges with Tigerburn to provide him with a head.

Elsewhere, Rattrap drops a potted plant in the chaos and scrambles to retrieve it, the pot containing the last remaining soil of the Legends World. He nearly gets stepped on by Jolt when the plant suddenly defends him with a force field, revealing that the planet's Beast Power has evolved her into a sentient being named Botanica, before kissing Rattrap as thanks for protecting her. The Nemesis begins absorbing Beast Power and transmitting it into Galvatron's Creation Matrix, much to the concern of Rattrap who believes the energy will be key to reviving the Legends World. As Repugnus's army of drones is blasted out of the sky by Galvatron when they try to attack the ship, the Legends natives resolve to lend a hand and launch aboard the Axalon, where Leo Prime employs Transformers sickness to awaken their inner beasts and transform them into their "true" Beast Era forms. The Axalon pierces the Nemesis and the powered up Legends warriors proceed to cause havoc within, culminating in Optimus Primal, Leo Prime, and Big Convoy destroying the ship's core with a Triple Beast Convoy Matrix Attack. Galvatron isn't overly dismayed by the ship crashing into the planet as his Matrix has already been filled with plenty of Beast Energy, and he turns his cannon on the defeated Monsterbots while gloating that he will first destroy the Autobots, much like he did in his original dimension, and then he will go on to conquer all dimensions. White Leo and Tigerburn remain defiant, but the Monsterbots are ready to accept their fate...

While completing the Dinobots on Earth in 1985, Wheeljack and Ratchet explain to Spike that without Vector Sigma they cannot create true robotic life, advising him to see the Dinobots as something akin to animals instead. Wheeljack goes on to create the Monsterbots in 2011, programming them to be stupid to ensure they won't go on a rampage, but by now he feels "animal" robots like them are the same type of lifeform as other Transformers, just less intelligent. Deemed unsuitable for combat because of their silly personalities, the Monsterbots end up stationed on Beast where they're treated as equals by the Beastformers, and over time they develop higher intelligences equal to other Transformers.

Voicing their gratitude, the Monsterbots remove their Beastformer Headmasters and toss them to safety before being blasted by Galvatron. Suddenly, three of Beast's mystical Gems appear and speak, praising the Monsterbots' selfless spirits before transforming into their true forms—the legendary Three Wise Ones! Recognizing that their power is needed to protect Beast, they adopt robotic forms, transform into mechanical versions of the gems and combine with the Monsterbots, announcing that the time for "true evolution" has come.

Some extra tidbit from my previous interpretation of the comic that aren't mentioned in the summary:

Sabrblade wrote:It's the year 2038 of the G1 World, during the G2 Era when Galvatron II is still in command of the Decepticons.
Sabrblade wrote:since "Destron" in Japan refers to both the Decepticons of G1/G2 and the Predacons of the Beast Era, I guess Sakamoto can get away with the term being indistinguishable between the two generations of 'Cons. Though, from our Western perspective, this now means that Nemesis wasn't built by Predacon science, but by Decepticon science.
Sabrblade wrote:The G2 Decepticon Dreadwing fights... with a new mode, the Dread Roadblock Mode, which resembles a sort of base mode or artillery platform. The Cyberjets likewise show off a new Power Up with more weapons.
^ Said weapons are those that were to have been part of a plan for reissues of the Cyberjets that Takara was planning way back in 1995, which would have all new weapons retooled onto their arms. But, this plan never come to pass, leaving these weapon retools ultimately unreleased. Anyway,
Sabrblade wrote:White Leo becomes Doublecross's head for the first time in 15 years, while Tigerburn merges once more with the Headmaster Warrior Lione (this time in in a mutual willingness) and becomes a new head for Grotusque (since Platinum Tiger is still secluded back inside the Holography Mirror from two chapters ago).
Sabrblade wrote:Repugnus and Hedgehog arrive with an army of Repug Armors, now called "KoRepugs" ("Ko-" being a Japanese prefix referring to small, cute, or baby things, like "neko" means "cat" while "koneko" means "kitten"), and sends each KoRepug up to engage Nemesis,
Sabrblade wrote:Leo Prime crosses his arms (doing the same pose as the Headmaster Juniors and Godmasters from Masterforce when they would turn from human form into armored suit form yelling "Masterforce!")
Sabrblade wrote:a "Triple Beast Convoy Matrix Attack"... appears to fully cripple Nemesis for good (but if this all still takes place before its appearance in Beast Wars Second, then that means that it's gotta be fixed later on for the events of that cartoon to still happen).
Sabrblade wrote:Galvatron... recalls how he had previously defeated the Autobots back in his own reality, complete with a flashback panel showing the dead Rodimus Prime strung up between the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center (as seen back in the Marvel G1 issue "Rhythms of Darkness!").
Sabrblade wrote:...the creation of the Dinobots in 1985 (G1 seasons 1 and 2 both took place in 1985 in Japan since they were one long run of episodes instead of two separate seasons spanning 1984-1985 like they were in the West),
Sabrblade wrote:Then we see the Monsterbots being built by Perceptor and the second Wheeljack (the first Wheeljack died in TFTM, this second one came to this world from the Binaltech world) in 2011 during early on in The Headmasters since Rodimus Prime is back in command at this time.
Sabrblade wrote:...the Monsterbots, whose bodies get fried by Galvatron (fitting, since the dialogue refers to them by their Japanese name of "Firebots").

That was surprising. Those Prime masters originally appeared in the Power of the Primes toyline.

Mind you, they're not really 3 of the 13 Primes (Micronus, Nexus and Prima): rather the Three Wise Ones take robotic forms in order to interface with the Monsterbot bodies like the Battle Beasts before them. Given their supposed divine nature, the design of 3 PotP Prime Master were repurposed for that goal.

And one more Easter Egg: Hooligan riding Road Pig is a direct reference to the G-2 pack-in comics:

#12 to be exact, included with... Road Pig.

Artifact from the TFWiki link. To be precise, the "%27" is the code for the apostrophe ' in the title.

Anyone who made fan modes with Repugnus' and Grotusque's Beast Mode heads in Robot Mode should be feeling really good now, as it's now canon! By placing the Headmaster Beastformer in the cockpit (Get On!), tweaking the chest panels on Repugnus and folding over the claws on Grotusque, in addition to using that Beast Head, one can create the "Beastformer Mode".

Oh neat, I didn't catch that the Monsterbots and their Beastformer partners are now Getmasters. Cool.

Not too sure if Doublecross can be one, that would involve totally transforming his upper torso, leaving him with his dragon arms and robot legs.

Somehow that reminds me of the concept behind the Beast Masks from Beast Wars.

Yeah, I doubt it's doable for him since his robot arms and beast heads are the same things.

Blue Big Convoy comic scan and summary, courtesy of user Powered Convoy and TFWiki, respectively:

https://tfwiki.net/wiki/Legends_Comic:_Bonus_Edition_Vol._EX_(Blue_Big_Convoy)

In a future beyond the 21st century, Cybertron is turned into a technorganic world thanks to Optimus Primal's sacrifice, and with its rebirth Vector Sigma becomes an ultra-computer that governs the planet and creates a new generation of Transformers to protect it. Several of these are "Convoy Type" Maximals, named and patterned after Optimus Primal in honor of his memory, and these end up at the top of Cybertron's hierarchy. However, one of their number—Blue Big Convoy—renounces the notion that Convoys are special and refuses to be part of the Convoy Council, who he accuses of overindulging in the power of their Energon Matrixes. He tells his son, Big Junior, that while he believes peace between Maximals and Predacons is the only way forward, said peace will someday end when the special treatment afforded by Convoys will trigger an uprising by those seeking equality.

Blue Big Convoy and Big Junior fight together in many a battle in defense of peace, until one day when Blue Big Convoy is struck down protecting his son from a force of mysterious energy-seekers. When Junior despairingly asks why it came to this, his father responds that it's because he's a Convoy—a Convoy is nothing special, merely someone who fights to protect others. Before passing away, he asks Junior to take his left arm to replace his own destroyed appendage, then dubs him "Big Convoy" in recognition of his son's ability to protect others as well. Witnessing his father's death because of him leads Big Convoy to adopt a lone wolf nature, unwilling to fight alongside others as he doesn't want them to be hurt. Some time later, while an older Big Convoy is skipping out on Survive's instructions, Vector Sigma summons Great Convoy to tell him the mysterious enemies were likely searching for Unicron's energy. Expecting a new Great War to break out, the computer announces it will prepare for the coming chaos by re-mechanizing Cybertron and asks Great Convoy to focus on educating new recruits.

Energy-seekers... nice reference to the BW Neo Blendtrons Drancron, Elphaorpha and... however his name's spelled :lol: I'm spotting Air Hammer, Buzzclaw, Terragator and Noctorro. Outside of Bantor, that's all Fuzors accounted for in Japan G1 as the rest appeared in Neo and Season 2.

When I first heard about the contents of this chapter, I was initially concerned that it had sounded like Vector Sigma undid the Technorganic reformatting of Cybertron so soon after Beast Machines, as though that show had gone through all the trouble it went through to bring about this revolutionary evolution of the Cybertronian race... only for Vector Sigma to just change its mind afterward.

But now that we have a proper summary, I see now that the undone reformatting instead occurred quite some time later, much closer to Beast Wars Neo, giving it a good number of millennia to take effect before the planet was metalized again.
