Toy News: "Legends" Springer & Skids revealed

Dengeki Hobby has posted new images of upcoming "Legends" figures (the Japanese version of "Generations"). Both figures are actually a couple years old, but these are new decos. The first is Sprang (aka Springer) in a deco heavily influenced by his cartoon appearance in G1. The other release is Skids, who has not yet been released in Japan. This deco is darker than his U.S.

The awesome TF Yuki has rung in the new year with new images of the upcoming "Armada Starscream Super Mode" figure from the Japanese "Legends" toy line. This figure is based on the Armada Thundercracker figure. While the toy was named Thundercracker (with a different Mini-Con partner to boot) the cartoon presented the character as an upgraded form of Starscream himself.

Before the Autobot known as Drift worked with the Autobots, he was a Decepticon known as Deadlock! Now thanks to E-Hobby, fans will have a chance to own a toy of this character. Deadlock will be a redeco of "Generations" Drift with alternate weapons (it appears to be the weapons included with Blurr). Deadlock will cost 5000 Yen, approximately $42 USD (from e-Hobby, it will be more after retailers tack on their costs) and is due for release in March 2016.
