Every month we get a snippet of what will come next from Takara and now that we have all the stock images for the most recent Legends reveals, such as Misfire, it is now time for more announcements. As previously hinted, Targetmaster Slugslinger is one of these anouncements, completing the trio. He is LG-55. Below you will see the upcoming Legends coded with numbers 54-57 along with a reissue of Masterpiece Black Convoy (MP 10B). This was found on the Planet Iacon Facebook page. Also as predicted, there is still no sign of redecos in the Legends line, so still no Lightfoot.

MP-10B Black Convoy (Reissue)

LG-54 Bumblebee and Exo suit Spike (Legends Sized Bumblebee figure with Titan Master)
LG-55 Targetmaster Slugslinger
LG-56 Perceptor
LG-57 Octane

Who was the genius that predicted Bee would come with Spike?

I guess that's the Takara release of the Rebirth Hasbro Cerebros head. Whoever said that, awesome call.

Very close. It's "Excel Suit", the Japanese name for the Exosuit.

So Takara is choosing to use Octane instead of Octone. The Takara name for Octane....alright

No, it does say "Octone" in Japanese.

As well as "Bumble" instead of "Bumblebee". The news story just used the Hasbro names for the TFs.

We all did. Stevie Wonder blindfolded naked in a dark basement did. It was that obvious

I have been wanting to add an MP-10B to my collection for awhile. Now I will be able to do it without the ridiculous eBay prices. The Legends releases sound like worthy additions too.

To everyone calling Spike for Bumblebee, have some cookies :lol: As for the mold used, I'm not gonna wager a guess.

And no "Battle Convoy" version for the Octane mold? Most called that too ;) btw It looks like TakaraTomy got the regular trademark for Octone back. Back in Henkei, the character's name was "Destron Octone".

ooooo cookies, yum. anyway, i think they just decided to skip Battle Convoy in favor of Black Convoy, which I'm ok with being an RID2000 fan

I mean it has to be the Hasbro Cerebros mold right?

Either that or an original mold.

Or it's another case like Clouder where Takara found a clever way to convincingly redeco an existing Titan Master mold into having an entirely new look, one in this case that resembles Spike's TFTM exosuit.

LG-57 is one of the figures I've been waiting for.

If that turns out to be true, that'll be... well yeah, awesome. Just got to learn to paint Fortress up in black.

Or retool it with a Prowl/Bluestreak head. You'll know what I'm talking about ;)

If Takara is going ahead with Octane for release in the Legends line, I hope Blitzwing is announced soon too. I want that special Takara touch to fix up some of the Hasbro paint apps to make a great G1 cartoon accurate rendition of the character. Hasbro's version is good, but not perfect, with its thick purple paint job on the face and wrong colored tank cannon.

I wonder if they'll bundle a Targetmaster with Perceptor? That'd make sense, right? Like Doublecross he's a bit of an odd-one-out Deluxe in this line and they need to dump the Targetmaster on someone.

Do you think this is how we'll get Fracas?

There's no "Targetmaster" in his name, like there is with Hot Rodimus, Chear, Triggerhappy, Misfire, Doublecross, and Slugslinger.

Hmmm. Wonder who the final Targetmaster will come with then. Would they break patterns and pack it with a Voyager or Legend or Leader maybe?
