Toy News: Takara Tomy releases new photos of "Legends" Godbomber

Takara Tomy has released two new photos of the upcoming "Legends" Godbomber figure via their Twitter feed. The "Legends" line (the Japanese equivalent of "Generations") has long devoted itself to updated versions of classic characters, but Godbomber may be one of the less widely known characters. Originally introduced in "Masterforce", this character transformed into armor and a trailer for Ginrai. While not shown combined in these photos, it is assumed Godbomber will be able to combine with "Legends" Ginrai.

Toy Review: "Generations" Titans Return Decepticon Quake & Chasm

Decepticon Quake is not big on fancy things like "strategy" or "planning" when it comes to battle. He prefers to wade into battle, weapons blazing until everyone has fallen! Check out my review of Decepticon Quake with Chasm!
