No 15 of the Young Gangan manga, a magazine published by Square Enix, features a licensed manga about a girl who buys too many toys on Amazon. These happen to be Transformers toys. We have two images from Twitter along with another image published on the official Square Enix site about a visual error where an amazon box seems to be over Drift's shoulder in an image where we see a very lucky Generations Metroplex. With the Last Knight opening up in Japan very soon, there is a lot of cross promotion and this may be part of it.

Oh, neat! Let's see, we've got Metroplex and Drift as you said, Universe Sideswipe, TR Chromedome, TLK voyager Prime and Megs, Evasion Mode Prime, CW Magnus...any others that can be identified?

Reminds me too much of myself. I like it. The art style is right up my alley, too. Sleeping with plastic toys is not a good idea, though, I can attest to that.

This poses many questions:

How much did Amazon pay for the advertising?
How much did Hasbro pay for the advertising?
Who else thought of Kiss Players when they saw the thumbnail?
How old is this 'girl?'
Who's the other woman? Her mother? Sister?
Assuming she is a blood relative, shouldn't she look more like the 'girl?'
She has figures from two different continuties mixed; that's making my imaginary OCD flare up.
That wasn't a question.
This isn't either: Hello, I'm new here.
Is manga inherently not to scale?
Is Megatron fighting two Optimus Primes?
I know the visual error was pointed out in the description; did the editor not notice that or not care?
What the f was the name of the girl from Pokémon Sun and Moon? This 'girl' reminds me of her.
Finally...
After visiting Seibertron.com religiously for the last ten years, why was this the story that drove me to create an account?

So many theories... You saw how completely awesome (most) Seibertronians are and just had to join... this article is so completely stupid and hilarious you just had to join in... You had nothing better to do and figgered "what the hey, may as well now"... The Great Primus told you to and you have no choice to obey... Kremzeek took over your computer ( :KREMZEEK: )...

I never said any of these were the least bit plausible, but hey, fun theories. But seriously, check your computer for :KREMZEEK: 's... they could be anywhere.

Yeah, and I also seem to recognize DOTM Shockwave and Human Alliance Soundwave.

In the first panel, the box near her feat is for a Hasbro Beast Wars Tigerhawk.

In the second panel, that figure box is an odd mix of Optimus Prime images and the accessory layout from MP Hot Rod's box.

I just want to know if this manga will be available in the US in English, or at least translated somewhere online to read.

Actually, It sounds like it a story in a collection of some sort? I've seen those large Manga where you have chapter or two of like different series, weekly, or monthly, is this one of those and if so, what is the actually title for this story?

The actual title is "My Toy", you can click on the link posted in the story and it will bring you to the main site, thats where I found the title. I do not think it will be published in the US in English (none of the others have). But if there is enough traction from the fan community, it could get a fan translation but we dont know if those who usually translate comics will get this and translate it.
And this comic comes out every 2 weeks.

This is kinda cute. But, umm, I'm not really familiar with "Amazom".

"...in an image where we see a very lucky Generations Metroplex..."


I DO hope that this was NOT a sexist or offensive remark about women in the front page/news page, Seibertron. If it was inferring that Metroplex was "lucky" because (he?) was sleeping with a "pretty girl", then I would reccomend removing this part of the news post.

Not cool.

Metroplex is lucky because its owner clearly cares about it to the point that she wants to keep it close even while she sleeps. Nothing else is being inferred or alluded to, I can assure you.

Thank you. For the record, I still think that people could infer my original comment, rather than yours. I hope that I am wrong.

Oh for the love of Primus, grow up.

He's allowed to express his concerns, there's no need for you to go after him after Va'al has already addressed the issue.

My apologies, I was out of line.
