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!

E-Hobby has revealed a mysterious listing for a "Beast Wars" themed set of "Legends" figures. "Legends" is the Japanese equivalent of "Generations" in Japan and exclusives often pay homage to past lines outside of Generation One. This set is a creative and unique combination of "Titans Return" Mindwipe's body, Infinitus, Apeface's Beast/Vehicle and Nucleon and repaints them all into a homage of the "Beast Wars" two pack that featured a bat-based Optimus Primal and crocodile-based Megatron! Even better?
