Transformers Legends

For years many of the Transformers toys from Takara (Tomy) included small trading card sized tech specs (bio cards), but with Combiner Wars and then Titans Return, the tables were swapped and the Hasbro toys were the ones that came packaged with cards.

Takara Tomy's version of Titans Return, Legends, while missing actual cards the instruction sheets at least mimmick the look of a card. Even though these aren't cards, I'm going to give Legends its on section here in the Database...because I can! Plus the artwork is just too nice not to share.

I have imported nearly every Legends release, though I still haven't opened them all. I will be updating this section as I go along. I hope you enjoy the ride!

Botcon 2016 Flash Sentry



The (now defunct) Official Transformers Collector's Club offered Golden Ticket packages to attendees and one of the perks was an exclusive toy. Limited to just 110 pieces, this translucent purple "Reflector" toy, based on the Legends Shockwave mold, is something that I didn't know existed until Benson from BWTF.com send me this scan for the Database.

Sonic Drive-In: Wacky Packs featuring Transformers the Last Knight



The summer is full of blockbuster movies...and then there is what seems the semi-annual live action Transformers movie. With large summer movies comes licensing and promotions. Sonic Drive-In restaurants in the US were offering foil sticker packs in their Wacky Pack kids meals. The packs came in 8 different varietys and each pack contained 6 stickers.

I don't know how many stickers are in the set, but it appears most of the characters have one silver foil sticker and several white background stickers. I'm not a fan of the live action movies or the designs of the characters...but I figured some people may get a kick out of these.

Thanks goes out to lmb3.net for all of the images.
