Unicron's really in the business of Combiners now, isn't he? First Grand Galvatron, then the Megascream combiner in Deviations, and now he's upgrading Baldigus. Didn't quite think it was his thing.

No silhouettes at the end or anything. Unless there's something in the text it looks like Baldigus might just be the last Unite Warriors release.

There is a "To be continued" there though. Who knows? The combiner train may not be at its final destination yet. Maybe we'll see Liokaiser yet?

Also, did anyone else notice the Autobots were about to execute the Commandos? Not a very Autobot-y thing to do!

I'd like to see this translated.

It looks like the whole RID/CR Scourge/Black Convoy and Grand Scourge thing got a lot more confusing :-( :HEADHURTS: :KREMZEEK:

Love the giant combiner port on Unicron's head.

I'm guessing the Takara Legends release of Unicron will also continue the comic?

I think Roller and Prime made up, somewhat.

Also, I think the "teaser" in this one was supposed to be Scourge showing up.

Man, I need a translation. That was intense

They are releasing Unicron?

But yeah that combiner port was my favourite part. It looked like it was made of raw energon. And plugging onto that planet reminds me of his look in that old G1 Unicron toy where he really is a head atop of a big planet ball.

It seems...
Black Convoy finally saw Baldigus Reformatted/Upgraded :BOWDOWN: :RENEGADE:
Dolrailer has a unicron symbol, and that means....

I guess it's either Liokaiser or Unicron (possibly, due to the combiner peg of his head :lol: or something else (still Black Convoy)

I figured they are due to the "Platinum" re-release, and with him all over the place in their comics why wouldn't they? Takara likes money.

I have no idea though. Seeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeems like it?

Holy cow, this comic is amazing!! Backstory references to Car Robots, Kiss Players Position/15 Go! Go!, The Battle of the Star Gate, and more!

Allow me to try to clear up some confusion regarding the final panels at the end. Grand Scourge shows up wearing a Combatron symbol and when Baldigus sees him, he most likely mistakes Grand Scourge for his old boss Black Convoy.

As to why Grand Scourge is wearing a Combatron symbol, his toy came with several insignia decals, which included one with a Combatron symbol that he could wear in homage to Car Robots Black Convoy. For an in-fiction reason, I guess Grand Scourge can simply change his symbols to look like whatever he wants them to. After all, he is a guy that can cross dimensions and such. Maybe he simply has symbol-changing powers too. As to why he chose to wear the Combatron symbol, maybe he found out about CR Black Convoy's existence and similar appearance to himself, and learned about Baldigus having appeared in this comic's events, and so decided to wear the Combatron symbol so as to trick Baldigus into thinking that Grand Scourge is Black Convoy so that Grand Scourge can use Baldigus for his own purpose, whatever that may entail.

Yeah, I thought that was Grand Scourge. Makes sense, he came out as part of the same line (kinda)

What happens in the Platinum line doesn't affect or reflect whatever Takara does with their own lines.

For me one of the most frustrating things about collecting transformers is the lack of equality, especially when it comes to numbered series. Seems like the numbers never end evenly. I know since the very beginning Autobots (though generally smaller and weaker) have outnumbered the larger/fewer Decepticons. If Baldigus were to be the last, that would again leave an unbalance (5 good and 6 bad), but overall and when combined with all other CW, subscription services & exclusives it would be an even 20 (10 and 10), though Devastators disproportionate size would tip the balance slightly in favor of the Decepticons. So if this were truly *the end* of UW I guess I would be ok, though there is a lot of untapped potential. If, as some speculate, we start getting beast combiners near the end of 2017 with whatever line happens after TR ends, perhaps Takara will pick up the line again at that time. An optimum solution would be for TT to release a UW Raiden to scale with Devastator, but then again if a new Omega Supreme Titan class figure is ever made, it will probably be in the 18 inch range, made as Devastators true rival.

Well imagine that, Grand Scourge showed up just like I said he would all along. People said there was no chance since he's an e-Hobby exclusive and his comic was written by someone else so his ability to jump through universes wouldn't apply and it's a different Scourge anyway. Turns out I was right all along. :-D

Interesting that Grand Scourge is suddenly sporting a Combatron symbol (which DID come with the figure). Let's see if Deadlock chases him into this story, too.

Although the japanese g1-verse is very confusing it's a lot of fun reading it all tie-in.

Thanks to sabrblade for helping explain the last few panels.

I hope Black Convoy/Scourge and Grand Scourge are kept separate characters but having said that it would explain why Black Convoy/Scourge wasn't present during the combatron execution pages 8-}


I also don't want the power of Grand Scourge to nerf that of Unicron...behave takaratomy :-x

In Black Convoy's Legends comic, he had escaped from jail into the Legends Universe, seeking help to break Gigatron out of prison.

Just to note that yet again, we still have no explanation for Ironhide and Ratchet being alive.
