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 Quickswitch

Quickswitch is able to transform rapidly between six different forms, giving him an edge in battle matched only by a handful of other Transformers. This ability also represents his tendency to switch moods unexpectedly! Check out my review of Quickswitch from the "Chaos on Velocitron" set.

Toy News: Transformers Legends Godbomber revealed

The beginning of December has brought a surprise for Transformers fans: Legends Godbomber! "Legends" is the Japanese equivalent of the "Generations" line, featuring modern interpretations of classic characters. Godbomber was introduced in the "Masterforce" series as an additional trailer for Ginrai and could combine with the hero to form a suit of armor. This figure seems to retain some of the classic elements of that figure including the ability to merge with Ginrai and even passenger seats for three Titan Master figures!
