Courtesy of users from the Transformers fan group on Facebook Hobbymizer - a regular source of Transformers news - we have some partial images from the manga comics that will accompany the Takara Tomy Legends releases of LG-EX Grand Maximus and Greatshot.

You can read a full explanation and check out the images below, as fellow Seibertronian Sabrblade takes us through what's what, but you'lll be glad to hear about the appearance of Star Saber and Black Zarack in the comics!

Sabrblade wrote:Snippits of Grand Maximus's and Greatshot's comics have been posted.

In Greatshot's comic, Star Saber appears (drawn in his cartoon/MP look, so not a new toy) to tem up with Greatshot. Jetfire can also be seen in the background as well.

While in Grand Maximus's comic, a villainous face from the past makes his return: Scorponok (the little guy, known as Zarak in the West; not the bigger guy, known as MegaZarak in Japan) has finally come to the Legends World and has a brand new (and GIGANTIC!!!) BlackZarak Transtector that is a virtual redeco of Doublecross/Twinferno's body, the Scorponok Headmaster that came packaged with TR Grotusque, and a red version of the trident accessory that came packaged with 2010 Terradive.

Devil Z is also back again and he, along with Scorponok serving as BlackZarak's Headmaster, serves as BlackZarak's Getmaster, inserting himself into the cockpit within BlackZarak's chest.

The notion of using the Twinferno/Doublecross toy as the inspiration for BlackZarak comes from the original BlackZarak's Dakatsu Mode, which was a two-headed demonic serpent beast.

Now, keep in mind, this is NOT a confirmation of new Legends BlackZarak toy, as it could entirely be just Sakamoto having fun, as there have been other virtual redecos seen in the Legends manga that have not been made into toys, such as the blue Rumble/Frenzy, or Wilder from Fangry. At this time, we have no way of knowing if this is anything more than just a bout of fun, so let's not get our hopes up too high if this doesn't lead to any toy release.

While not confirmed that’s gotta be a future Mall or Ehobby thing. I’ll spend $60-80 on that I don’t care.

Then again still never got Jhiaxus or that bludgein teased.

I just want a good scorponok. I know a lot want a titan class but I want a voyager maybe lease class. I don’t like him being massive. I’ll even settle if one of those companies that’s KO legends scale figures like mechfanstoys does a voyager size of iron factory lord scorpion.

After reading the articles for Topsin and Twintwist comics I’m left wondering “does takara not like Windblade?”

They’ve really made her quite unlikeable.

Scorponok needs to be at least a leader class size figure. Of course I'm one of the people who want to see him done as a titan class.

I was under the impression that a lot of people don't like Windblade to be honest.


On a side note, that redeco for twinferno would be sweet, but I don't see it happening.

Personally I’m not a fan of Winblade. It’s not because we keep getting toys and she’s just put in every fiction. Im just not a fan of how she’s been portrayed. I don’t like her character in IDW at all. In RID she’s a total Mary Sue, her portrayal in Titans return I actually kinda liked because she’s flawed as hell and the show didn’t rely on her as a McGuffin for the end and I don’t need a new toy every year of her. I hope she’s done well in the new cartoon however because she ain’t going anywhere

I think she'll go through a few more character changes yet before they find something suitable.

I do like the Black Zarak repaint of Twinferno. Probably be overpriced so I guess I'll be customising one of the many shelf warming Twinfernos in my local.

I really like how it homages the 2 headed serpent mode while vastly improving it and I now want the Scorponok Titanmaster and Grotusque even more.

At this point, she's been brainwashed by Katsu Don, after having surrendered herself to be used as a weapon of mass destruction by him in order to stop a previous attack by the Mutant Targetmasters who were destroying the world. She gave herself up so that Katsu Don could turn her into a Headmaster and allow her to combine with the Transtector body that Katsu Don had been working on for Windblade's big sister Nijika. In their agreement, Windblade was able to stop the Mutant Targetmasters and bonded with Pinpointer as her new Targetmaster, but at the cost of her free will since she had to return to Katsu Don and become a weapon for the Zamojin once again. Now that she's lost her free will, every good guy who's fighting her now is not just trying to stop her but also trying to save her. It's kinda tragic and noble in a way, as when she wasn't under the control of the Zamojin, she was rather kindhearted and friendly.

i know i read the summaries of the comics but still her whole fiction in Legends hasn't portrayed her well at all. it just feels like "well were getting another toy i guess we have to do something with her" and its hasnt really treated her the best.

To be fair, has her treatment really been that much worse than those of most of the other Fembots in this manga series? ;)

and also Nightbird and Slipstream had pretty good stories. Blacharachia i wont deny that was a total "we made a retool with giant DDs so we better flaunt them" lol

We have images taken of the latest entries in the Legends manga / comic series. Both Transformers Legends LG EX Grand Maximus and Greatshot came with a 6 page comic. As usual, these are filled to the brim with Easter eggs (how timely). The Grand max comic might just take the cake with an appearance of Black Zarack (Dark Scorponok) with an inventive use of the Titans Return Twinerno mold, making reference to Black Zarack's two headed dragon mode. There is also an amazing shot of all the Beast Wars Maximal leaders, Optimus Primal (sporting his Beast Machines body), Leo Convoy and Big Convoy. Plus you will find a series of epic shots like Greatshot riding Star Sabre and much more. We highlighted some shots below followed by the comics. These were found on the TFW2005 boards, and posted by Gamerlingual. Enjoy!

Well doesn’t look like Zarak will get a toy. Wasn’t really expecting it but if he’s a one and done thing than yea it’s just sakamoto being fun.

I thought for a second that Black Shadow (Sky Shadow for some) was finally featured in something. But nope. I don't know my takara characters evidently...
