Courtesy of Seibertronian Powered Convoy, we have some scans of the pack-in manga issues from the Takara Tomy Transformers Legends series that accompany the release of LG65 Targetmaster TwinTwist with Spoil and LG66 Targetmaster Topspin with Peaceman, including the combined vehicle mode we had previously seen on the online prologue here.

Included below are scans of the comics, summaries of the same via TFWiki, and bios for both figures (as they form part of the comics booklet) - check it all out, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub!

Katsu Don makes another attempt at destroying the Legends World using Windblade as well as the mutant Autobot Targetmasters, who Windblade can manipulate through her bond with Pinpointer. The Wreckers arrive from the post-G2 era to aid in the world's defense only to be pinned down by the Targetmasters, and when Twin Twist breaks off to take on Windblade by himself, he gets decapitated. However, Twin Twist is aware of the Zodiac's existence in the Legends World and somehow calls it to his side, using its power to transform his severed head into a Headmaster and his body into a Z Mode "Drill Base" that in turn uses its drills to generate electromagnetic waves that sever Windblade's connection to Spoilsport. Twin Twist grabs the Targetmaster and, revealing that his special ability is to grant any weapon the properties of a drill, unleashes a "Spoil Drill Hurricane" attack against Windblade that frees Peacemaker from her control.

Chromedome is surprised that Twin Twist can freely control Zodiac energy, and Springer explains that he and Topspin are space pioneers known as the Powered Masters... as well as the true creators of the Legends World. The two Jumpstarters tell Katsu Don "long time no see" and invite him to test who's stronger—them, the creators of this world, or Windblade, its destroyer.

Transformers News: Scans of Takara Tomy Transformers Legends LG65 Twin Twist & LG66 Topspin Manga

In the year 2004 of the G1 World, Topspin and Twin Twist hear about the Legends World from Whirl and Roadbuster, and as space pioneers and Powered Masters, think it would be nice to establish a paradise of a world someday. Decades later in the G2 era, they two are asked by Katsu Don for their cooperation in creating an experimental new universe also named "Legends", and realize he must be talking about the same world since time has no meaning when it comes to alternate dimensions. Concluding that they must create the Legends World or else Whirl and Roadbuster will never be born, they steal the Zodiac, inspired by Dai Atlas's using it to create a new planet in Planet Z's solar system, and use it in conjunction with Zamojin telepathic powers and the Space Pirates' proton energy to create the Legends World.

Katsu Don is outraged that the Jumpstarters have broken their promise not to interfere with their creation and sics Windblade on Topspin, but he easily avoids her thanks to having used the Zodiac to become a Headmaster—this combined with being a Powered Master and Targetmaster grants him the power of a Triplemaster—and calls upon the Zodiac to recreate everything Windblade and the Targetmasters have destroyed. Katsu Don himself enters the fray, insisting that the Legends World is dangerous because of its connection to the powers of the Zamojin and must be destroyed, but the Jumpstarters, determined to defend their creation, combine into a vehicle form known as Attack Powered and soundly defeat him and Windblade. With Windblade restored to normal once again and Katsu Don captured, Springer assumes all's well that ends well. However, the Jumpstarters, now having recovered all three mutant Targetmasters, tell him it's not over yet...

Not counting the double targetmasters of G1, iirc, HB released 6 targetmasters for the Autobots and 5 for the Decepticons. Have they all been "revived?

I only count 9 only.

And, what's the new threat in the cliffhanger?

Good gawd, the Grandmax ending all makes sense now! But what about Violenjiger? He also another aspect of the negative energy of the Matrix? And Star Giant (in the Starconvoy catalog/TV manga, the was a Unicron like being mentioned). Same?

Legends versions of Nightstick and Fracas aka Nebulon and Nightstick are still MIA. The Universe 2008 and Masterpiece versions make decent stand-ins

Just did some digging and, from what I can tell, Greatshot's original 1989 trading card toy bio mentions Sixshot (and Sixknight) as a separate individual from Greatshot, referring to Sixshot and Sixknight as having been Greatshot's "nakama" (friends/allies/comrades/etc.) back when Greatshot was a member of the Six Clan.

With the brand unification, I hope you like paying for exclusives ;-) plus only one of the autobot target masters looks to have a more detailed generations toy. As for brave, he could happen the same way that we got Grand.

Brought to the Wolf Circus by his loyal troops, Scorponok explains that he had been wandering space following the black hole battle until Devil Z took control of him and had him build a transtector. Now that he's free, he plots to apply his usual plot to the Legends World—blowing it up and absorbing its energies for himself—and to do so he needs the plasma energy within the six Targetmasters, currently held by the Autobots who are attempting to restore them to normal. As the first step of his plan, Scorponok summons the second transtector Devil Z had him make on Beast: the gigantic Majin Zarak, a machine with the instincts of a beast and a veritable "god of destruction", whose origin comes as a surprise to Leo Prime.


When the police set out to protect the citizens from Majin Zarak, Scorponok's agent Flywheels sneaks into the police station and breaks out Slugslinger, Misfire, and Katsu Don, the latter agreeing to an alliance since his goals overlap with Scorponok. Katsu Don attacks the Autobots and steals the Targetmasters for the Decepticons before summoning the rest of his race to participate in the final battle, but the Zamojin army is in turn attacked by Skids, Sky-Byte, and the Dimensional Patrol. Rattrap is confused as the Dimensional Patrol previously considered the Legends World problematic, so Sky-Byte explains that he convinced them that it's a beautiful world that deserves to be protected, and he even managed to get the other three Predacons inducted as well. The Patrol easily holds the Zamojin at bay thanks to Neo Brave Maximus's robot mode, and before Scorponok can intervene, Majin Zarak is attacked by Leo Prime, Lio Convoy, and Optimus Primal, who has transformed himself using Transformers sickness once again. Scorponok calls upon Weirdwolf, but he has gone to Tera-Kura Co. to convince Noble to join them, having grown attached to the wolf and not wanting him to be killed in the universe's destruction, though Noble refuses and instead suggests Weirdwolf himself switch sides. Weirdwolf is left torn—compared to their previous destruction of Cybertron, which neither he nor Scorponok felt attached to, he feels a connection to the Legends World where his living transtector, Rarigo, and Butla were all born, and he knows in his heart that what they're doing is wrong...

Clouder and the SDF confront Majin Zarak and keep it busy while Megatron's Decepticons mobilize Trypticon, but even the cityformer is dwarfed by Majin Zarak who destroys him with a single giant beam. Blown away by the same attack, Leo Prime realizes that they're going about it the wrong way: since Majin Zarak isn't destined to be destroyed until their battle in the future, they simply cannot defeat it here and now. Meanwhile, Scorponok has modified the Targetmasters into new plasma energy bombs to be placed around the Legends World and detonated, restraining Slugslinger and Misfire when they protest. All hope is not lost, however, as in the city, Chromedome is approached by Pointblank, Sureshot, and Crosshairs, who have finally arrived in the Legends World and acquired transtectors from Kup's shop.

Thanks to fellow Seibertron user Cyberpath, we have the latest chapter in the ongoing Transformers Legends manga, available on the official Takara Tomy website here.

That's not all though, Sabrblade, has pointed fans in the ]direction of a title for the chapter and an English summary of the Japanese text. Check it all out below.

The new Autobot Targetmasters are catching my interest:

- Pointblank: TR Hot Rod, Hasbro version
- Crosshairs: TR Kup
- Sureshot: TR Full-Tilt?!

Ok, we're never getting them, unless the Full-Tilt mold is separate from Trypticon. btw They're just existing Transtectors painted over by Kup and Sue :lol:

Oh Geez for a second I thought those curved parts on Majin Zarak was Windblade's butt or something and got really embarrassed. Also, did he just pull a Godzilla 2013 on Trypticon?

Maybe, it would hardly be the first modern Godzilla reference he's made in the comics.

To say nothing of Spike from Encore Fort Max and Grand Maximus's Armor. Or all of the head swapping Takara Tomy has done with their recent Headmasters.

I would definitely be all in on a set even if they are EX.

I always wondered why the Destron Targetmasters got the re-issue/redesign/resurrection treatment and not Blanker and the rest of the Autobots ( 86 Movie 'bots notwithstanding) :???:
