Takara-Tomy have posted up a new chapter of their ongoing Transformers Legends web manga. In this chapter Black Zarak’s Headmaster summons forth the monstrous Majin Zarak – villain of the Beast Wars Second movie Lioconvoy’s Crisis – who wreaks havoc in the modern era. Facing him are a host of characters including a Brave Maximus who looks a lot like a certain Titan Class toy.
What might get fans excited though is one of the final panels where Autobot Targetmasters Pointblank, Sureshot and Crosshairs turn up to help, each sporting a body that is reused from an existing Titans Return toy. Pointblank is a recolored Hot Rod, Crosshairs a reuse of Kup, and Sureshot looks to be Full-Tilt from Trypticon.
This in all likelyhood is just the artist having some fun, but as a previous exclusive demonstrated, that being Million Publishing Artfire, sometimes there is truth in what we see in the panels of an illustration. As a counter, other manga-only creations like a Bludgeon from Hardhead have not materialised. Time will tell what comes of it all.
