I think this might be one of if not the only time I go for a Takara version over the Hasbro version in a case where the Hasbro version doesn't look bad (like TR Blurr)
Probably because I care a lot more about the Beast Wars guys. I imagine it'd be pretty expensive importing all three tho...

Huh. They look much better in natural lighting. Hell, even Galvatron doesn't look so bad.

The Periwinkle color of Galvatron is really starting to grow on me.

With the beast wars guys, its not really about importing, these are convention exclusives. So its the equivalent of someone in japan wanting to buy Botcon/SDCC exclusives. The only way an american will be able to get him is through BBTS, like the link I put below.

And Wolfman Jake, it should be same price as the LGEX toys of last year for deluxes:

So, maybe $40 Rattrap and Waspinator and $60-65 for Rhinox? Not bad, all told. Better than you would do buying directly from the TFCC for BotCon exclusives of equivalent size, that's for sure. :P

By the way, can anyone tell if there's really ANY appreciable difference in the decos between Legends Rattrap and LG-EX Rattrap? They look identical for me except for the Beast Mode eyes being black on the EX version, which is more accurate for the Beast Mode, but the red eyes for the standard Legends release are much more accurate to the Robot Mode, which is the mode I would have him displayed in more often than not. I'm trying to figure out if there is really any reason otherwise to get the EX version of Rattrap. LG-EX Rhinox is a must for his less shiny metallic "skin." Same goes for Waspinator versus his previous Takara Generations version. The lack of the shiny paint looks a lot more on model in terms of coloring, though the deep green and gold did look nice too.

The space between Galvatron's "Headmaster" unit and the "Transtector" mask is still problematic. It looks like it should fit a lot more snuggly together. For instance, the chin on the Headmaster looks like it should plug into the back of the chin strap on the helmet façade. In the pics above, Galvatron's got a weird "double chin" deal going on.

Can someone please explain to me what is the gimmick with Galvatron and his mask over the face bit?

It's just so damn weird that I really really hope a 3rd Party comes forward with a much better looking head piece! :PRAY: :VEHI:

I think it it was a way to have the traditional galvatron crown as well as the headmaster gimmick.

Its not that complex. You just insert the titanmaster as his small head and then a mask flips from his chest and goes over it. And you can then rotate it all.

It works pretty much like the old beetlejuice toys but this time the bigger face stays attached to the body and stored there.

Soundwave and Blaster have those helmets as well. It's a bit of a necessary evil as all the Titan Masters have to remain the same size for overall compatibility, and the larger the body (like the Leaders and some Voyagers) the smaller the head would look proportionally. Like the Beetlejuice above. :lol: It's either find a way to bulk them out, or design bigger Titan Masters.
The helmet trick has been done before, mind you, mostly with combiners. Two that come to mind are Energon Optimus Prime and PCC Skyhammer, and G1 Scorponok uses the very same cheat.

It's a way to keep the titan masters uniformly sized and compatible with all size classes while still looking proportional on larger figures.

It also hearkens to the days of the Headmaster Jr. Half head half cockpit.

Via site sponsor TFSource, we have some confirmation on the upcoming figures to be released by Takara Tomy in their Transformers Legends line! Ranging from LG27 to LG31, the figures are, in order: Leader class Blaster, Legends class Rewind, Legends class Wheelie, Deluxe class Weirdwolf/Wolfwire, and the big bot himself, Fortress Maximus - check out the grey images below, and speculate away on redecos in the Energon Pub.

LG-30 was the mystery one, right? Kind of odd for it to just be Weirdwolf.

Did they remold Fort Max's feet?

I guess this means that Takara isn't God afterall and didnt drastically remold fort max for him to be able to pull off his traditional city mode.
