With only a couple of revealed toys left to be released in the Takara Transformers Legends line, fans were wondering when we would get new reveals or if Takara would retire the line and release toys under a new line. Well, we finally have an indication that the line will continue. A listing on Action Robo's facebook page shows us that the next release is LG 43 Trypticon. Trypticon is listed with an MSRP of 25000 yen, which is the same price point as the previous Titan figures released in Japan. So expect this figure to be sold for about 18700 Yen ($170 USD) at Japanese stores and closer to his MSRP ($225 USD) at importers.

Action Robo also states that the release date is end of August,2017.

Then if nothing is being released before Trypticon - which his numbering would indicate - then this indeed seems to confirm the idea that they're taking a break to sell the movie toys instead.

I wouldn't count on it - Metroplex and Fort Max didn't get any other partners compared to their Hasbro versions, after all.

Funny thing actually; while Takara hasn't added any partners to Titans, all three of their Titan releases so far have added extra weapons... :-?

My sentiments exactly since we still haven't gotten confirmation of a LG Sixshot, Overlord or if they're even going to make their own version of Liokaiser.

I did break down and eventually grab their version of Devastator but that wasn't until the price dropped about 30% on BBTS.

But as far as Trypticon goes. If he's not some how taller with a longer tail and darker grey, Takara can keep their version this time around.

Takara had extra weapons in their releases thats it. Smaller partners were present in both hasbro and takara versions.

The Unite Warriors line is over, and all has been revealed for that line.

I see no difference between this and people hoping to see the hasbro version of Galvatronus in a boxset getting released. Both are as likely.

I still most certainly see Sixshot, Overlord, Hot Rod and all the rest of the molds being released by Takara eventually. Again, this release date just seems to indicate to me that they're suspending their Legends line for a bit in order to focus on the Movie product.

Which basically means that my wallet will be taking a break then since that movie crap means nothing to me.

Or perhaps I'll buy that Megatronia set (or whatever she's called) if it drops down about 50%.

Didn't mind the idea of having a Decepticon fembot combiner set but "No Way" was I ever paying almost $200.00 for a re-re-repaint of what was initially Defensor 3 repaints ago.

My wallet is thankful! I only need to pay for the last two club payments and Godbomber. Then I can go back and choose things that I passed on like MPs and Liokaiser.

I couldn't care less about Galvatronus. A United Warriors Liokaiser set "DONE RIGHT" would be more plausible but if Takara doesn't think so then that's their lo$$...

They could've just included some repainted titan master vehicles as Brunt, Gasket and Grommet. Weird that they included them with the Deluxes but not the Titan size.

You are looking at this the wrong way. The cost to make a totally new combiner system with the two deluxes for a mid section and CW compatibility would be very high since there would be 0 Hasbro backing (unlike say, the new tooling for legends Leader Prime). They have a smaller market, so doing all this new stuff just for one toy could not be worth it for them.

Anyways, we already know its not happening, the line is declared over.

F'eh - I care nothing for the movie toys. Push THOSE to the back of the line and get Trypticon out faster.

So I guess that means you will be buying Funko Pops then for a while ?

You might want to consider buying the "NEW" (<- Note the Quotes) TLK Legion Bumblebee to review simply to rant the heck out of the fact that Hasbro is so cheap that they have reissued the ROTF Legion (not even the slightly better AOE one but the ROTF one !!!)

That is crazy - I have this cynical idea that they are holding off on making some decent Bumblebee's this time so they can flood the market with yellow toys when the Bumblebee Movie comes out.

If they get to The BB Movie and they still have not made a nicer 1970's Bee I will be irked - and that applies to Deluxe and Legion both.

---

As for the Legends Brand - I wouldn't be surprised if they give it a new name and begin re-numbering as that is an excuse they can use to release repaints some times - if they put them in another line.

I'm guessing The Black Convoy is going to be Legends affiliated even if it's un-numbered and so might any future Millionare Publishing & E-Hobby items that get made too.

As I have speculated before it would make an awful lot of sense to release a new E-Hobby Fire Guts God Ginrai toy.

I can speculate though - as with the transition from Henkei / United and Legends and all that sat in the middle of that they shoved in some Animated and Prime toys too as filler (heck I'd still welcome a Blue Prime Smokescreen Deluxe and Black Bumblebee Deluxe using the FE or RID-12 Moulds). but I can see Takara perhaps leaning towards another semi- G1 related line concept as they'd quite likely want to find a home for things like the Clones from the Boxed sets (since they are new moulds). I don't think they'd want to get into the 60's in the numbering which is where they will be pretty soon if they carry on with the Legends Numbering... at least they seem to like to reset the numbers quite often.

I suspect the reason they do that as they'd want to make whatever new Optimus or similar is due but they'd not want to keep churning them out under the same brand name.
