In other news from Takara Tomy, this time about the Transformers Legends line, we have confirmation thanks to site sponsor TFSource that the Clone Autobot set, Blitzwing, and Overlord from the Titans Return line will see their Japanese release as LG-58, LG-59, and LG-60!

Again, we still have no images for the three listings, but prices in USD will be approximately 35, 55, and 90.

Do we know if the clones will be all 4, the Cloudraker/Wingspan pack or a Pounce/Fastlane pack?

[strike]We do not, but considering it's called 'clone set' rather than 'destron clone set' or 'cybertron clone set', I'm gonna assume it's all four.[/strike]

Hey so disregard all that, the listing is actually for a "Clone BOT" set, so it's just Cloudraker and Fastlane for now.

Hhhmmmmm...... I'll be keeping an eye on that, if I can't find hasbro Pounce and Fastlane for a proper price.

Honestly, with Takara releasing the clones like this, I'd fully expect Hasbro's Pounce and Fastlane to fall dramatically in price on ebay.

It would be shocking if they didn't do him eventually since the previous figure was from the Generations line. I think the only reason why Octane happened first was because of Trypticon. I'm sure we'll hear something by the end of the year for a 2018 release.

That's some clairvoyance you got Emerje! :BOWDOWN: My sincere thanks! :VEHI:

So, I'd like to draw everyone's attention towards the prices.

-As presumably a set of two Legends figures, we don't have a direct comparison for the Clone Bots at 36 USD; but it seems to be consistent and sensible alongside, say, Bumblebee at 20 USD.

-At 55 USD, Blitzwing is the same price as Octane and Broadside -- both of whom came with extras. We could be seeing a Titan Master vehicle or even a new Titan Master alongside him.

-Of most note is Overlord at 90 USD. As this price is nowhere near Ginrai's 130, we can finally put to rest that there won't be overly major changes -- it is higher than Sixshot's 80 and Blaster's 85 though, so make of that what you will. Probably accounts for a second and maybe third Titan Master.

Sorry. Been so long since I changed sigs, I forgot there were limits. And I only changed it because Photobucket decided to be greedy. I'll figure out a way to get my old one back later.

Ginrai's original price on tfsource was $95 I believe. They most likely sold out, got a few extra in and then jacked up the price because they knew people would be desperate to get him. There could be more to their overlord but we won't know until he's revealed.

The US prices wont give us the best comparisons since we arnet taking into account the change in exchange during that time. It wasnt put in our news but here are the prices in yen







Compare those to Octane and Jinra

And take into account the small tax amiami adds, you now notice that Overlord has the exact same MSRP as Ginrai.

But remember, this is very very close to the MSRP of Blaster, who had nothing almost different. The prices are not related to how much effort is put into them, its just a price point. So the only differnce might just be an extra titan master.

And I much prefer the $35.99 price tag compared to the $17.99 for one clone pack... on top of $99.99 for the other clone. Perspective is everything ;)

As someone else mentioned, you have to compare the Japanese yen prices, not US retailer prices.

Blitzwing is the same price as Octane and Broadside, which came with an extra Headmaster (Octane) and Titan Master vehicle (Broadside).

The Clones are 3500 Yen. Which is 500 Yen less than the price of the smaller two packs Takara releases (legends scale Transformer with Headmaster - Bumblebee & Spike, Kickback & Clouder, etc). These small 2 packs are 2000 yen, so the two clones being that twice that price minus 500 yen seems about right.

Overlord is the same price as Ginrai, who had significant changes. They are both 500 yen more than the other Leaders such as Sixshot. The 500 yen increase could simply be for the addition of an extra Headmaster (see Octane's price increase).

It's also about the same price as the Adventures box set of Rumble and Frenzy at ¥3,500. Granted, those were Scouts, but I think Takara Tomy is more interested in the price point than the contents. The Generations 2-packs were ¥3,600 which when accounting for inflation and removing the Micromasters is pretty much the same price.

The bigger question, I think, is how will Takara change up the clones compared to Hasbro's releases? What could they do, really? Will it be a situation as it is apparently with Legends Trypticon, where Takara is basically releasing the Hasbro version in their market with minimal changes?
