    So I guess the last panel teases Super Megatron? I wonder if they would have a Galvatron core bot and Super Megatron be the combined mode.

    Might be easier said than done since Super Megatron is looking to be an extensive retool of Titans Return Galvatron who doesn't have a core bot gimmick a la Star Convoy.

    Even though the main Legends line is done (finished with LG-66 Topspin last year), TakaraTomy Mall still occasionally unveils LG-EX releases, like the Big Powered set. And Sakamoto still does the manga for them. I originally thought both Star Convoy and Armada Prime were going to be LG-EX releases, but obviously Star Convoy wasn’t.

    I just found it odd that the Powered Convoy Legends manga went out of its way to show Prime and Megatron again returning to their Star Convoy/Super Megatron bodies, and yet the new Star Convoy toy’s manga has nothing to do with that storyline and doesn’t even take place in the same time period.

    I do miss him. I’m pretty sure the name plate had LG-EX on it as well as star convoy.

    Given that it was remolded to have the pegs to connect both weapons, I would imagine it's very very intentional.

    They can retool the headmaster into Galvatron.

    It didn't have LG-EX. Just S-Convoy and A-Convoy.

    Really? Well okay. Star convoy is select so I wouldn’t be surprised if Micron Legend convoy was in select series as well.

    Yeah, Takara is very clearly done with the Legends toyline. If they weren't, Star Convoy, Turtler, etc. would be LGEX releases instead of Generations Select.

    I imagine there'll be one last online manga at some point to wrap off the story and then that'll be it for Legends.

    Well we knew from the brand deal it’d be ending.

    I’m pretty sure the manga is done as well. Sadly. It’d be cool if there was one with all the siege figures.

    Like Jalaguy said, there will probably be a final story to tie everything together.

    Or at least I hope so.

    That I’m not so sure about. Star Convoy is an extensive retool of POTP Optimus. But Armada Optimus looks to be a brand-new mold. But anything beyond that is anyone's guess...

    (Why aren’t we hearing anything new about that new Armada Optimus?! The radio silence is killing me again...)

    Yeah true. There’s no real certainty. I’m just spitballing.

    In the last LG-EX manga, Dai Atlas killed Super Megatron. I’m sure there’s gonna be at least some kind of concluding story, because there’s no way they’re going to leave Megatron dead. Not to mention that the Legends world needs to be rebuilt.
