Takara-Tomy Mall and Amazon Japan have both updated with official images of the Transformers Legends releases of Autobot Jumpstarter twins Topspin and Twin Twist, as well as the two pack of Seaspray and Lione. Each one has some differences in their decos compared to their Hasbro releases, best summarized as follows:
- Seaspray‘s eyes are painted differently, light blue on grey. He loses the white on his feet and his windows are now painted dark blue rather than black, and he also loses the tampos based on his stickers from his chest. The end result looks rather plain compared to the Hasbro one.
- Lione gets paint on his robot mode (Hasbro’s was completely unpainted here), and the arrangement of colors on the Headmaster mode are changed, so that Lione’s lion head and paws are now in yellow, but his face becomes the same orange as the rest of the helmet. It’s a toy accurate layout of colors, but the yellow used is not toy accurate.
- Topspin gets a different shade of blue plastic, and his visor is now blue where it was black. Some of the detail is now picked out differently (the shoulders, for example, have part of their detail done in blue and red where Hasbro filled the whole area with orange), and the Headmaster also has some extra paint. Otherwise it’s mostly changes to the details, the broad layouts of paint applications seem unchanged.
- Twin Twist, much like his brother, has darker blue plastic, and some changes to the details. His deco seems far less changed compared to the Hasbro one.
Both Twin Twist and Topspin leave out their Hasbro release’s silver guns, as they now come with Targetmasters! Peaceman (Peacemaker) comes with Topspin, and Twin Twist is partnered with Spoilsport.
