Legends Comic Translation LG21 Hard Head


Ladies and gentlemen!  I am proud to present, finally, the translation of Hardheads in pack comic! 
Like, properly edited and looking like a comic. 

AAAAaaaand the best news is that after carefully going over the comic, my run down of it’s story is the same as my dodgy typing up of the story back when I reviewed the toy.  His bio was translated there as well, so READ IT.


Enough blah blah;

Energon Hot Shot, Reflective Review

While trawling through an old back up drive, I managed to find a little project of mine that I worked on while in uni.  It was a basic and HTML programmed page for my own hosted Transformers review page.  Oh the chuckles I had while looking at this.  So, since I am still alive but sadly have less time for blogging, I thought I would post what I did there on here.  Slightly changed as I had a few text links linked to pictures, and it’s just easier to embed pictures in blogger.  So here we go.  Enjoy my na├»ve views of toys when I was a younger grumpy old man.  Enjoy the work of my wonderful 3.2 megapxiel camera when I had very little idea how to use it.

First Review I’ll post will be for (drum roll please)  ENERGON HOTSHOT.

Incidentally, that’s the style of the page I was going for at the time.

Headmasters Prologue Issue 37 Legends Comic Translation

HMPrologue Head

Rolling along with the translations, here is one I’ve been eager to do for one main reason.  To find out HOW the Headmasters lost their bodies.  So after putting it off as it looked tricky, then starting it thinking it wouldn’t be that bad, then getting stuck on trying to make sense of the pseudo science that makes up the explanation, I finally have it completed.  This is a web comic, not included with any toys and is available in the original form on TakaraTomy’s Transformers Legends website, but in the very likely chance that it will disappear (like the bio info for Micron Densetsu did), I have the original comic, English arrowed version and arrowless version.  Notes at the end of the post.

Transformers G1 Unofficial Photographic Archive book project

I was sent this link from a friend and turns out it is being done by another friend, so being a friendly guy, I am going to spread the word.

There is a kickstarter project for a Photo archive of all toys G1.  These things are great to look at and I would like to see this supported, because, well books are awesome.  So first link is off to Heroic Decepticon's blog for a bit more info, or get yer butt over to the Kickstarter page directly for all the shebang and explanation one could need.

Do it, do it now.   I'll still be here when you get back.

This has been a public service announcement.

Trypticon VS Dynazowra!

Or how to shamelessly cross promote nerdy things.

You may have noticed that I am a bit excited about a certain large dinosaur Transformer that has been recently released.  Well in the way the internet works, I entered into a deal, or drunken texting (whatever), idea thing to promote a friend's blog.

Big Angry Trev's Comparison of Trypticon and Dynazowra

He's a bit of a nutter and so has bought both the Hasbro Trypticon as well as TakaraTomy's Dinazaurer (to use TF spelling).  The good news is, since most people see TT as doing different colourations and stuff to Hasbro, he has done a lovely jubbly comparison between the two versions.  I am sure, to many people's delight.

And after reading it, perhaps dismay.

LG43 Trypticon toy comic Translation!


***Updated with a better scan of the comic***

Hi guys n gals, Finally I’ve completed this epic piece of work.  What started out as fun ended up being a bit of a rush as I got into it.  The release of the second part to his prologue the day before I received the toy was a shock, but finally, I have here a translation of Trypticon’s in pack manga!
For those wondering, chronologically:

Then this one.

Massive thanks go to Big Angry Trev for providing me with a scan!  Get on over to his site for some interesting takes and views on the world.  He’s a great bloke!  He has done a comparison between the Hasbro and TT version of Trypticon/Dynazowra, so get there and have a look.  I’m not gonna spoil it for ya!

   If I get a chance, I’ll work on getting a cleaner scan (amd I have) , but for now, this will do nicely!  Enjoy!  Oh as a bonus, I’ve done the bio as well.

LG43 Dinozaurer Trypticon Web Comic Translation Number 2


Well, here is a tricky one.  It is listed as issue 44 on TakaraTomy's website, but its another web comic for #43 of the Legends Line.  It's the comic for Trypticon.    Webcomic #1 is here.
For the sake of history, first is the original Japanese comic, followed by my English Arrow help version and then a clean English version.

Once again, share and enjoy!
