Thanks to Seibertronian Powered Convoy, who found the image elsewhere - and it originates on 4chan, by the looks of it - we have a scan of the in-pack comic that accompanies the Takara Tomy Transformers LG-EX God Ginrai set, featuring both new additions Minerva and Cab, and a couple of other characters from the Legends manga series, as drawn by artist Hayato Sakamoto.

Notably, we also get a brief glimpse at the LG-60 Overlord, through 'modernised' renditions of Gigatank and Megajet as seen in the upcoming release of the figure first seen in Titans Return, along with the Headmasters proper in the story (as opposed to the Titan Masters released under Hasbro's version of the toyline), both God Magnus and Super Ginrai, and some entirely unnecessary fanservice. Check out the image below, and click to enlarge!

Honestly, the recurring portrayal of these young girls getting naked is getting downright creepy. Like, Kiss Players level of creepy... :shock:

That's something of an exaggeration. Basically every character is canonically older than they were in their original portrayal, and unlike in Kiss Players there's no rapey subtext or penis tongues (not to mention they're not drawn like children). Sure it's a little risque but on the whole it's very, very tame.

Wrong god. ;)

So, any guesses who the guy at the end with Overlord's Master Braces is? He has Giga's non-Godmaster armor gloves on, but how would that work?

That is Giga. He’s been showing up quite a bit in the past few stories. They’re building up to Overlords return

I understand that there is a notable difference, but I don't know. It still comes off as excessive to me. Is the legends line not marketed to children? I have no problem with nudity, but I would have a problem with my son opening up a toy and this comic was inside.

It's definitely marketed to collectors rather than children. The Legends line as a whole is aimed more at older collectors.

Though it is worth noting the Japanese have a MUCH more lax view on nudity than the West (at least, in cartoons). If a kid WERE to read it their reaction would probably be "LOL, boobs!" in much the same way as kids' comics in the West might wedgie gags or the like. AFAIK nobody much in Japan outside of a very small group of moral busybodies (basically "Won't someone please think of the children!?!" types) really cares. Compare that with Kiss Players where the Japanese fanbase were outright disgusted and were worried that Westerners might think that sh!t was considered "normal" in Japan.

To quote TV Tropes, Naked People are Funny. A shame then that TV Tropes isn't anymore.

But yeah, either way it's really nothing to get upset about. Equal parts cultural dissonance and Sakamoto exercising his ability to not give a toss thanks to an older audience.

(Of course, given that Sakamoto-senpai is actually pretty familiar with the Western fanbase it's entirely possible he's doing it just to upset certain silly individuals.)

People wouldn't be getting upset about it so much if Sakamoto only put that kind of stuff in these Legends pack-in comics every once in a blue moon instead of consistently going out of his way to put it in nearly every single pack-in comic. >:oP

We really don't know how long after the Masterforce cartoon the year 2021 takes place, as the Masterforce cartoon still has no official year placement of its own. For all we know, the Headmaster Juniors could all now just be one year older than they were in the cartoon, which would make Minerva merely 16 as she was 15 in the cartoon.

Ya know it’s not just Sakamoto ya know? It’s not like Takara is just taking what he draws and prints them and puts them in the box. They are reading and approving the comics.

It’s post 2030. The intro to Broadsides comic took place in 2030 so the kids are in their 20s now if you’re saying master force was 2021 and they were 15-16 so that would put the master force trio on their mid 20s

No no no. The Headmaster Juniors came to the Legends World from the year 2021 of the G1 World. Broadside and the Aerialbots (and Megatron, for that matter) came to the Legends World from the 2030s of the G1 World.

No no no. The Headmaster Juniors came to the Legends World from the year 2021 of the G1 World. Broadside and the Aerialbots (and Megatron, for that matter) came to the Legends World from the 2030s of the G1 World.


So there’s time traveling or has 9 years just passed in the legends univers? because there has been a lot of stuff that’s happened in the legends universe. I’d honestly be okay if just time has passed.

Time in the Legends World is grossly out of sync with time in the G1 World to the point of nonsense. For instance, Megatron arrived in the Legends World from the G1 World's 2030s. Then, the Headmaster Juniors, Headmasters, Targetmasters, Twincast, and Soundblaster all arrived in the Legends World after Megatron, but having come from the G1 World's year of 2021. And now, Broadside and the Aerialbots have arrived in the Legends World after all of those guys, but came from a point in the G1 World's 2030s before Megatron's original departure date in that same G1 World's 2030s. It's like anyone can just come and go between worlds at any point in time in the G1 World, only to arrive in the same era of the Legends World completely out of chronological order from the G1 World's timeline and all within a reasonably close proximity to each other's arrival time in the Legends World. 8-}

All that and people get pissy over Sakamoto drawing what some(not me) call controversial things. This entire universe is a giant joke. I’m reading the tfwik articles of each comic right now and am at LG Megatron and all I can do is shake my head.

People take this comic too seriously to get offended by its content.

I don't think anyone is offended by these comics. It's just beginning to seem that Sakamoto is going out of his way to include a naked girl in every issue he can for some reason. Definitely coming off as kind of pervey.

English summary for the God Ginrai comic:
Cab drags Shūta along to peek on Minerva in the shower, trying to defend the violation of privacy as "appreciating beauty", and they end up caught in the act when Godbomber chimes in using telepathy and Minerva overhears his thoughts. Ginrai interrupts to bring them all along on a delivery to Bonapar Island, but as they fly across the Pacific Ocean on Godbomber, they get shot down by the Gigatank firing from the island. Godbomber transforms to robot mode fight back, only for the Megajet to appear, blast the Headmasters off of both Super Ginrai and Godbomber, and capture them.

Giga and Mega haven't accounted for the Headmaster Juniors traveling inside Godbomber, however, and Shūta is able to kick the head-mode Minerva and Cab at the Super Ginrai and Godbomber transtectors, allowing them to become "Super Minerva" and "God Cab". The two combine into "God Minerva" mode and recover Ginrai and Godbomber from Giga and Mega, who make their escape with Ginrai's shipment—new Master-Braces made for research purposes. While Ginrai and the others are left wondering why their old enemies have come back to life, Giga revels in the fact that he and Mega can once again operate a transtector and finally get their revenge on Ginrai.

That’s your perspective and again, Takara publishes it. They look at the comics too and if they find it just fine and meets their standards who are we to judge?

Oh there are. Not gonna get into it too deep but let’s just say someone was so out right offended they were blowing up not just this just other sites boards demanding the sites change stuff around to accommodate them and their personal views. Tfw2005 ended up deleting entire pages of posts.

Honestly I’m just going to say this:

If you repeatedly get upset over the content of the Legends comic over and over every time new releases happen then stop reading them. After so many times why continue clicking on the articles? It’s not like complaining does anything. Unlike some comic artists and writers, Sakamoto is not part of the community outside Japan. He doesn’t know know English. He has to have a translator when he goes to cons and has to have scripts from IDW translated to Japanese when he does work for them. He doesn’t see the complaints.
