Takara-Tomy have added another twelve page webcomic to their website for the Transformers Legends line. Everyone is here in this one as the Legends World faces a crisis as Majin Zarak runs amok and timebombs tick down to zero, signalling the end of the world. The comic features not only the Legends cast of characters including the likes of the so far comic-only Autobot Targetmasters, but also characters from Encore including Big Convoy and Beast Machines Optimus Primal, and from Unite Warriors including Superion. If that’s not all, there are some pleasing human cameos from Marcelo Matere, James Roberts (with copy of Lost Light in hand) and Josh “Dyemooch” Perez! Awesomely, each creator cameo has them accompanied by various characters closely associated with them – so Marcelo Matere’s panel has him supported by various Argentinian / South American Transformers such as Robot Man X, James Roberts has him pictured with early 1990s Transformers Thunderclash and Skyquake, and Josh appears alongside Bumblebee. All of the Bumblebees.
While those without any understanding of Japanese might find it hard to follow what is going on, it is clear that this is intended to be a grand finale to the Transformers Legends comics and timeline, wrapping everything up with a planet-shattering explosion and the Maximals ending up back in the Beast Wars – but this time with a trio of Monsterbots for company.
The comic also seems to clear up that Repugnus’ Headmaster is indeed the porcupine Battle Beast, as well as showing off a base mode for Twin Twist.
