    Who's that shark guy entering the Maximals' office at the end? Depth Charge's gun?

    I loved these comics. Yes they were perverted at times, but you could tell a lot of love was put into them.

    I think as part of the "unification" Takara is pivoting to using the "Select" branding on stuff like that.

    So Legends is really over? I hope that doesn't end up reducing the likelihood of the somewhat more 'obscure'/alternative Japan-exclusive characters getting toys even further.

    Pretty sure he already showed up in the webcomic a few months ago.

    Considering we’re getting Star Convoy, Seacons, and apparently Super Megatron... I think we’re in good hands.

    I've been wondering if those might have originally been planned as part of Legends before being moved over to Selects.

    I guess that's one benefit we can get out of this.

    To be honest, though, I tend to think of Star Convoy as being less 'obscure' (due to him actually being a version of Optimus) than say, Blue Bacchus. And I was hoping for a Takara Sixknight.

    (Also has anyone seen CHUG Star Saber? I actually expected him to be released first, possibly followed by Star Convoy, with Dai Atlas being a very remote possibility.

    (I'm kind of wondering if someone at Hastak didn't want a new Star Saber toy to be mistaken as the IDW version of the character (Game of Thrones fans, I do sympathise), and are now waiting for a new one with a more traditional personality before releasing a toy)).

    So, we now apparently have the end of Legends, as well as the webcomic. On the flipside, if both companies are releasing the Selects figures, I hope that translates into less customs charges for me (UK ones are crazy).

    Also, I imagine Sakomoto will be back, one way or another. Maybe we could get a Selects webcomic with the release of Star Convoy.

    It was fun to be a part of this series! I thoroughly enjoyed the work I got to do with it, and I really enjoyed Sakamoto's work on it. : )
    This was a nice way of wrapping up TF Legends. I do hope there'll be more comics at some point!

    I think Star Saber and Dezarus are both being held back for mainline release at the appropriate time. Hasbro simply caught G1 fever in co-marketing the Bumblebee movie. With Titans Return being one of the more successful non-movie Transformers lines in recent years and moving past this cinematic event, I don't think Hasbro will shy away from giving some of the less well-known characters some love in the very near future. We're already starting to see cracks in the G1-only wall with Cyberverse.

    Yup. Depth Charge's nuclear cybershark drone was characterized as the speaking character "Remora Son"「こばんざめたろう」in Japan.

    Ahem. You know you can supply a link to Sabrblade's commentary, right?
