Just got the shipping notice for Hot Rod, Kup and the Sharkticons from Anime Export :DANCE: so I only have to wait another month since I chose the slow shipping method :lol:

Looks like maaybe AmiAmi has them in too? I don't know the site's layout well enough to be certain, but it looks like I can pay for Kup (the only one I ordered) now so I think they're ready to go :D

Not that it matters since I'm already getting them, but don't we usually see more official photos from Takara right before they're released?

Interesting that despite the new arms, Kup clearly shares the elbow joint and part of the shoulder.

Transformers collector Alfes2010 has posted some new Takara Legends compairison pictures over on Twitter! The photos, forwarded to us by seibertronian Cyberpath, feature Takara Legend LG-44, LG-45, and LG-46, (Sharkticon, Hot Rod, and Kup), compared with their Hasbro counterparts!
The pictures show the pretty significant difference in decos and, in some cases, molding between the figures

Check out the photos below and tell us which version to these characters you'll be picking up!

Takara did so well on these...especially Kup.
I can't wait for these to ship.

I canceled hot rod a couple months ago and I’m honestly going back and forth on him. He looks nice but the TR one and upcoming power of the primes one do just fine.

Kup however I can’t wait. I ordered him even when they had that grey version.

Gnaw is a straight up Nah. I got 7 already and thy look good. Yes it’d be nice to have an alpha but it’s not needed.

Are those pictures from HLJ? I was wondering why they were out before these toys were released! ETA for my Amazon pre-orders is between 29/09/17 - 01/10/17.

I didn't expect remolded parts on these guys - very nice. These hit my Anime Export account the other day, and I'm excited to get them in.

Regardless of cartoon-accuracy, I think the Takara ones look better!

Welp, I've slammed the pay button on my Kup order from AmiAmi. Really wish I hadn't ended up paying nearly Voyager-price for him but it's a hell of a lot better than not getting it at all. He should hopefully be turning up at my door in about a week or two :-D

Damnation am I missing something? Is Hot Rod mis-transformed somehow and his engine part is missing from his chest? :VEHI:

From what we've seen, that's how LG Hot Rod is engineered. Retooled chest with new engineering - so there's no foldy-bit on the abs, and the engine disappears in robot mode. (It achieves this... somehow; it either stays on his back and there's a collar-piece under the car, or the engine piece flips over to become the collar-piece. I don't think we actually know for certain how it works yet, and that'll be the difference between whether you can have the engine on his chest if you want or not.)

I'm tempted to get 2 gnaw, to give Tyrannicon (Repurposing Sharkticon Megatron as the sharkticon general from Retribution... despite Sharkticon Megatron being from Retribution to begin with.) some varied soldiers. Plus, sweeps.

This is quite a flaw for me Takara...WTF?! :roll: Well maybe Toyhax can make a damn decal to put on his freakin' chest. :-P

Thanks for the comment Qwan! ;)^ :VEHI:

The bonnet flips over to reveal a flat chest. I'm sure previous photos have anyway shown this.
