You may remember that time a few days ago when we showed off the new Legends Waspinator, Rattrap and Rhinox courtesy of our very own Wolfman Jake. Well, after showing off the new figures, the Wolfman was kind enough to even take pictures of the comics that came with said figures and present them to us. So, without further ado, here are the comics that came with Legends Rattrap, Waspinator and Rhinox! Check them out below, and let us know what you think of them in the comments section. And expect some translations to come along here very shortly as well.

Apparently, Tankor's "80s Transformation Beam" is to blame. Seriously.

Yeah, but she's armed, and ready to kick some butt. Which just makes her a video game heroine.

Yeah, the bikini armor is meant to be a nod to how impractical that style was for heroines in 80's anime.

Likewise, Rattrap got turned into a Choro-Q, Cheetor was turned into a cliche anime delinquent, Tigatron's cute girl figures were all turned into eraser figures (like the G1 Decoys). All aspects of the 80's that, like Ai's impractical bikini warrior armor, aren't looked back in fond lighting.

It is a bit suspect that Ai is one of the only instances of 80s regression that wasn't changed back to normal afterwards. Fan service!

I, for one, don't mind Ai's armor, very Urusei Yatsura-style. ;)^

To be honest, thats the look I know her as, so it didnt phase me. Not as much as this:

And dont forget that Hasbro has its own dubious imagery. Who was it that chose this shot for Optimus interacting with Elsa:

Hey Will, do you have a link to the article that accompanies that image. I'd actually really like to know why Disney dumped Mattel for Hasbro. (Please PM as to stay on topic. ;) )

Now back to our regularly debated cultural differences.

What? You mean Magnus protecting Ai from Armada Megatron's threatening her with his pincers? Or something else?

The way it is drawn suggests she is wearing less clothing than she was before going in there. That is the something else :lol:

Transformers Legends LG20 Skids is being released this coming week and we have some new pictures to celebrate that courtesy of Twitter users Tagoal and I_love_gabrine. We even have a picture comparing this Takara release to the hasbro rerelease we got a while back, whos gallery can be seen here.

As you can see, the Takara version is far closer in deco to Alex Milne's comic book model, which can also be seen below.
