More Legends to come! A Transformers story.

Been feeling a little down lately plus working lots. Still haven't gotten to finalizing the Metroplex review. Anyhow, I decided to complete season 4 of Transformers: The headmasters. I even got Windblade who is this current gen but I decided that I need some fembots. I also got Twintwist and Topspin whose G1 toys were made but were never featured in any of the cartoons/anime.

Hopefully I can review these folks soon. Laters.

Toy Review: Takara Tomy Transformers Legends Perceptor LG56

Aloha folks. Thanks to a demanding work schedule....... yeah, excuses, excuses. I bet you are ready for some pics and not so much in whether I care for this figure or not. Anyhow, let's get started!

Boxing and contents:




Here is the link to the explanation to the comic:

Nice box art from Takara like usual. The comic is a throwback to the episode "Face of Nijika." Nijika's body is so similar to that of Windblade. Ramhorms conversion to his new mode is explained as well as Perceptor's reason of becoming a headmaster.

Microscope mode (Alt mode)



Neat. We finally get his updated microscope mode. You can look through the lens though it's fairly blurry. You can use his magnifier to pretend as you can zooming or zooming out while examining your headmaster or whatever you are examining. You can examine other headmasters of course I was a little pressed for time so I didn't do it this time around but you get the drill. This is neat to have besides having your typical plane, car, or train etc....

Toy Review: Transformers Takara Tomy Legends LG44 Sharkticon and Sweep

Sharkticons, execute them! Aloha and welcome to another Takara Tomy Legends review. I actually forgot to review this guy when I picked him up with Legends Kup and Hot Rod. How does he fare? Well, let's get started!

Boxing and contents






How's about Sharkticons x 3! Box art looks nice. Typical but awesome artwork by Takara Tomy. I'm shocked that he isn't that fast according to his stats but I guess his courage makes up for it. Comes with a comic and I had no clue what was it about besides seeing Hot Rod fish up a Sharkticon which starts our Sharkticon story. Anyhow, here is the link:

Toy Review: Transformers Power of the Primes Beachcomber.

Welcome to the very first March 2018 Transformer review! Today is none other than Beachcomber.
Well, let's get started!




Standard scout class and box-art for a Hasbro release. I didn't take his trading card out of the package but you can still see through it. Megatronus is supposed to be BeachComber's partner in alt mode but I don't have him. And quite frankly, I probably won't be getting him.

Robot mode





Wow. I'm amazed. Looks great, feels great, and plays great. Everything is great so far. Looks like a good representation of G1 Beachcomber so far. Joints are tight and BC can pose very decently.

Toy Review: Transformers Takara Tomy Legends LG55 Slugslinger and Caliburst Targetmaster.

Hiya folks, I'm back with another Legends edition of Takara Tomy Transformers LG55 Slugslinger and Caliburst; 2nd of the 5 transformers my sister bought for me from Tokyo. Without haste, let's get started!

Boxing and packaging




Destron and Decepticon merged into one?

Awesome Boxart and packing from Takara like usual. You have an mis-spelling error on his manual, his faction name is spelled "Desepticon." The comic included actually involves Spike being the bad guy; not sure why but he is. Slugslinger incapacitates some autobots including his buddies Misfire and Trigger happy. It is up to 3 of the girls to save them all. In doing so they are nearly rendered naked again (yup, a recurring theme in the legends comics). They save the day and here is the link for the synopsis:

Toy Review: Transformers Takara Tomy Legends LG40 Astrotrain triple changer!

Hello, hello, and hello! I've been busy with work and resting as much as I can, but I also wanted to take this opportunity to open up some of the figures my sister bought for me. In today is Legends Astrotrain, the triple-changer! Without delay, let's get started!

Legends Astrotrain LG40 comic sypnosis

Well, nice lookin artwork plus a funny comic till you reach the end part. I was chuckling for a bit to find poor Astrotrain maintaining a failing cargo transport company until he had a sinister plan towards the end. Anyhow, click on the link above to read the translation.

Warning: I made another blunder. I forgot that Astrotrain's robot mode had shoulder tabs so most of the shoot was missing the tabs.

Shuttle mode plus head master







Astrotrain's headmaster is a smaller version of himself basically. This is the default mode you get out of the box before you can transform him to his two other modes. The shuttle mode was ok. It was nice they painted the cockpit windows but to me this mode felt more like a space ship. There are some peg holes for you to just randomly place weapons. I have some example in the above pics. You can use mini-astrotrain to pretend as he is strafing his opponent. Not bad of a mode.
