Just yesterday we were made aware of listings for new Takara Legends products, most of which made sense and were simply their own releases of Hasbro's Titans Return toys; but one name in particular stood out - Kickback's Titan Master partner Crowbar, of which there was no clear indication of who they were.

Well, thanks to fellow Seibertronian Sabrblade once again as he's brought in a more accurate translation of the listing - rather than 'Crowbar', the Titan Master is in fact 'Clouder', the Japanese counterpart to Doubledealer and a character who starred in Masterforce alongside Ginrai, Overlord and all the rest. While we still don't have pictures so we don't know which pre-existing Hasbro head (if any) he'll be using, this nonetheless clears up some previous confusion. Check out Sabrblade's post below and discuss and speculate in the forums!

Transformers News: Takara Legends Titan Master Clouder (Doubledealer) confirmed

LG47 is Kickback & CLOUDER, not Crowbar.

LG48 is Gong & Repug, so Repugnus is indeed keeping his original Japanese name.

And LG49 is still Targetmaster Triggerhappy.

Any clue what the other 2 listings are?

Was intrigued when I thought it was a full Titans figure of Doubledealer (did not like that one they did from the already faily lousy generations voyager Blitzwing a few years ago) but it's just a head? Dang.

It would be pretty awesome. Just add it to the list of Triple Changer -masters that Titans Return never got around to.

I wondered if it was Clouder but I couldn't imagine which one would be used because none scream clouder. Well...maybe the Swoop/Ptero one. It's close enough

Kurona wrote:You could get a fairly convincing Clouder out of Chasm depending on your paint applications, honestly. It's a pretty clever way for Takara to repurpose it for their markets, especially when Clouder was part of the Masterforce gang and they didn't release the double Targetmasters.

That's toy accuracy and come on, we're talking Takara

I read this story four times before I realized that there isn't really an actual Clouder figure coming, but rather a Clouder-themed head.

Right?

Maybe. This is all based on a name and it can still mean anything.

Loopaza replied to me directly when I asked for an english translation, here is what they said:


We received some details of the coming up of Takaratomy Transformers news.

Coming in September, there will be 2 reissue of the Disney Label - Mickey Mouse both the standard and Black & White Trailer.

The LG series will continue in October and there is:

LG47 Kickback & Crowder, Kickback of course is the insecticon and Crowder is the Japanese name of Doubledealer? (properly just a headmaster)

LG48 Gong & Repack, Gong is the Japanese name of Brown and Repack is Repugnus

LG49 Target Master Trigger Happy, it will be the Trigger Happy with a Targetmaster.

It is a Titan Master, as the inclusion with a legends-class figure and the price point indicates.

The other 2 listings say: "Disney Label Mickey Mouse Trailer Standard" and "Disney Label Mickey Mouse Trailer Monochrome".

Hah, I knew it was a misreading. Still, quite a departure from クロウバー Kuroubā to クラウダー Kuraudā. I wonder what mold they'll use for him.

You know, I have a feeling Clouder (aka Doubledealer) is an unrevealed face for one of the original molds, like how Sweeps was. Which means it could be from:

- Apeface
- Brawn
- Fangry
- Loudmouth
- Nightbeat
- Ptero

Keep in mind that's a Hasbro release potential, thus has a vehicle that may match either mode (missile carrier or vulture).

That, no. Rodimus Prime and Thunderwing have the same retooled chest design, which makes me suspect they're gang-molded with the new face plates. Ergo, expect the next two to have the same chests as well. Plus, they're die cast, so I don't see TakaraTomy using them for a regular release.

And another thing to ponder: what "suit" will he use? The Cybertron one (Knok):

or the Destron one (Skar):

quick digibash for a grin. I think I might be okay with this. Eyes are slightly smaller, but that's not much of a complaint. Shape of helmet, vents, etc. All pretty good match for a repaint.

If they painted the shoulder/forearms grey (and we have precedent for paint here), that could be pretty convincing. Although, no weird cheek lines - and given the minor differences in the Mindwipe head, I suspect that alone would warrant a retool.

Looking at that sweep head they are already releasing, it seems takara has no aversion for new facesculpts for the titan mastet that comes with their legends figures.
