Earlier this week we had quite a few in-hand images of Takara Tomy's recent Transformers Legends releases, and now we have even more - including a comparison between Takara's and Hasbro's versions of Sixshot!

From @DPT_2002 on Twitter, we have a side-by-side comparison of the two Sixshots, showing off the Takara version's new head and surprisingly different colors (though placement remains mostly the same, with perhaps a tad more color variation in the Hasbro take). The lighter and bluer teal on the Legends version steers much closer to the character's coloration in Japan's The Headmasters series, where the Titans Return toy is more similar to the original toy (and his appearance in The Rebirth cartoon). The purple of the legs, meanwhile, is slightly more saturated on the Takara toy than on Hasbro's.

Speaking of Sixshot's head, however, it seems like at least some copies of LG-50 have rather less paint on their eyes than the mold seems designed for - @Sutoratron shares images of their copy, both as it arrived with semi-unpainted eyes and after some small work with a toothpick and red paint. At the very least, if this does happen to be a wide-spread issue, it's one that can be remedied with relative ease.

Steering away from Sixshot onto another recent Takara Legends figure, we have an image from @Doratimus_Prime of LG-52 Doublecross' Targetmaster partner (Haywire) being held by the earlier Legends Blurr, along with his Autobot Targetmaster partners Hot Rod and Kup holding their respective partners as well. With Doublecross' Legends release, collectors looking for a modernized line-up of the "Movie-era" Autobot Targetmasters will finally be able to realize that goal!

Check below for each of these images and their respective (machine-translated) tweets, and share any thoughts you may have below! Stay tuned to Seibertron.com for any further news relating to these recent Takara Legends releases (images of their pack-in manga should be just around the corner!), or any other Transformers news that may arise!

Target master double-cross, comes with target master's haywire. (In the comics to a surprising figure) and blur are natural partners because it have still come here.

It's not about more or less paint, it's about accuracy.

And the fact that there's not even close to less paint in actuality, just more paint serving the purpose of reducing the color variation. Those wrist-claws are either black plastic painted white on one side, or white plastic painted black on one side. The only two points of deco that are majorly "missing" from LG Sixshot are the ab paint (I'll concede on that one) and the chest decals, which are awful foil stickers that everyone hates anyway. Frankly I think the lack of those stickers is worth a premium on its own Image

Accuracy to a highly-simplified cartoon is another kettle of fish entirely, but with the newly-tooled helmet and head (not just face, entire Titan Master head dealio) on top of the redistributed but not significantly reduced paint, I don't think the logic here is too flawed honestly.

Takara is not as accurate this time around as people may think. In fact the shade of green on Hasbro is closer to Japanese Headmasters than you think. I have been watching Japanese TF since '96. He is defienelty on the lighter green side of that version of the show. I love Takara but this will be the price of Hasbro Sixshots. Now I do have a few Legends version of the Titan Return figures and I plan on getting Legends Overlord, but I just dont know about this Legends Sixshot. I peeled off the chest stickers on my Hasbro version and it looks much better to me.

Got LG49 Triggerhappy about a week ago. Transformation is very creative! So many twists and turns and stuff moving around. HasTak has been bringing it with this line.

I'd be more impressed, however, if they had managed to work a way for his head to stay attached. He was never a Headmaster before and two "master" gimmicks are a bit much. I came up with my own backstory to explain the head, different than Rebirth and Headmasters and the Legends manga. But I'm waiting for the other two jets to arrive.


Save for elbows, Blowpipe has some really good articulation for his size, but he's not very fun..

Image



.. at least not as much as these--!


Image
this is why they call me Triggerhappy!


Image
a direct hit!


Image
now lets see..


Image
heeeey--!


Image
whoa...




Lastly, some more silliness, his secret double-headed dragon mode, which surprisingly the manga didn't pick up on --

Triggerhappy: hungry!

Once again courtesy of fellow Seibertronian Cyberpath and their social media foraging, we have some new images of a Takara Tomy Transformers Legends figure, via Twitter account portarmy - a Japanese toy blogger - with spotlight taker LG-53 Broadside! The images, all mirrored below for your viewing convenience, are comparison shots between the Legends (left) and Hasbro Titans Return (right) versions of the toy, its jet and boat mode, the Headmaster and Titan Master, and the robots modes, plus some shots with mold-mate Tidal Wave.

According to the photographer's own description, both the grey and the red have been darkened in hue, with the latter also showing up more overall, as the Hasbro version adheres to the toy, where the Takara Tomy one is closer to the cartoon; plus, the eyes of the robot head are a different colour altogether: red for Hasbro, blue for Takara Tomy. Check them out below!

Has anyone tried swapping the red fins for the grey fins, and then flipping them around? I’m wondering if they would fit better that way.

Oh, not this shit again. Takara is only more expensive to people outside japan due to import fees, period. No other reason. If it was the same exact toy as hasbro, it would still be more expensive because of that (case in point, LG Trypticon)

The reverse works too, Hasbro toys are more expensive in Japan.

Check out this japanese listings from a reputable online retailer (like the japanese version of BBTS) for Hasbro's overlord, it's $100

http://www.redmercury.co.jp/shop/detail ... =RED-14034

And the only reason its more expensive is because Japanese people have to pay extra import fees for Hasbro products just like anyone outside japan has to pay extra import fees for Takara products.

There is nothing to fix according to them, that is how they toy was designed. And by them, no less.

I don't believe the grey and red fins can be swapped with each other, but swapping the leg each fin is attached to and flipping them around helps immensely. The kibble on the carrier mode's underside gets a tiny bit more noticeable and you have to mess with 'em a bit more in robot mode, but it's a decent trade-off IMO.

Slightly-above-potato-quality demonstrative images (utilising the Hasbro version, natch):

Ya, I have seen that configuration, and I agree it helps. But I’m really curious to know if the red ones can actually go where the grey ones are. Have you tried? Do you know for sure that they don’t fit?

Haven't tried it recently, but I seem to recall being unable to do it back when I first grabbed Broady earlier this year. I'll check and see for certain when I get the chance later today.

Despite the reports - again, we reported on what sources have sent out, back here - it looks like some fans have already acquired a copy of the latest Takara Tomy Transformers Legends exclusive set: LG-EX God Ginrai, the combined and packed together form of Super Ginrai (Powermaster Optimus Prime in the Anglosphere) and Godbomber.

Previously released as separate items in the same line, as LG-35 Super Ginrai and LG-42 Godbomber, the new set includes different decos with some new added chrome, plus new Titan Masters (Headmasters in the Japanese release of the toys) Cab and Minerva, some clear plastic on the varios alt-mode windows, and you can see it all below, in comparison shots for the various modes, including some size comparisons with other figures and in-hand images (including in-packaging) courtesy of the Hong Kong HK-TF Facebook group!

That's not really true. Japanese products are usually more expensive for a number of reasons. One of them is a protected market. Basically, things like CDs, for example, are much more expensive in Japan, to the point that an import CD of a non-Japanese artist is actually cheaper than the same CD printed in, or for, the Japanese market. This is also one of the reasons Japanese products feature "extra" features, items or content than equivalent products outside it; to be competitive and/or give a reason to buy the Japanese version.


Takara TFs can be found cheaper, at times, if sold by Hasbro Asia, while buying official Hasbro TFs from BBTS and importing them to Japan is fairly cheap.

However, Japanese shops are rarely connected enough to get their foreign products from wholesalers, so they but them at retail and then charge customers from that point in, hence the massive markup.

Japan has some cheap stuff, like food, etc, but many of their products, such as TFs ARE more expensive than foreign versions.

Just checked Broadside, and yeah the clips for the two types of tailfins are totally different dimensions - you won't be able to swap them with each other. No luck, sorry man Image
