Legends 17 English comic Translation Black Widow / Arachnia LG17

Continuing on with my translating efforts, here is the comic for Blackarachnia / Black Widow.  This one is a pretty cute one too.

Toy review is here

Tets' Toys & Shenanigans

Some things of note that I picked up on while looking closely.

  • Of course this is Halloween themed.  Blackarachnia was released in Japan at the end of October.
  • When BA wakes up, you can see the Legends Megatron toy and G1 Megatron in gun mode next to her, as well as a Megatron book/magazine/comic.
  • On her wall are Megatron posters with Prime megs, Movie Megs and possibly 2 others the are obscured.
  • She sleeps on Decepticon bed sheets.
  • Slipstream is a bit put out by BA in their OL clothes.  Is this due to bust size? (yes, I think it is).
  • The Femme-con ladies costumes are, BA – Cat girl, SS – Devil (maid?) and NS – Traditional Japanese burial clothes, usually used to depict a female ghost.
  • Nightbird uses signs, since she doesn’t speak. (Silent Ninja Y’see)
  • Windblade is dressed in the top part of Japanese school girl sailor uniform, combined with a school style swimsuit.  Typical school girl fetish clothes.  Airrazor is dressed as a female nurse.  Odd since Airrazor was a boy in Japanese Beast Wars…
  • The FemmeBOTS 3 shot picture, Arcee is a maid, Windblade has her school theme (perhaps indicating she’s the youngest?) and Chromia is a Bunnygirl… Maybe a reference to her large bust size…  Chromia also doesn’t seem to be too fond of her costume.
  • Rattrap is looking right up Arcee’s skirt….
  • Megatron’s hat is of course Krimzeek.
  • BW Megatron has some kind of cape.  Both his dino head(hand) and robo head have top hats.  Is he a classy vampire?  Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde?

Blue guy that isn't Sonic The Hedgehog


I’ve always dug Blurr, his super sleek space car mode looks nice.  His robot mode, well it wasn’t so sleek, (but animated fixed that!).  The only Blurr toy I have so far is the recolour of Drift (and Animated), where he as a rather chunky looking car that turned into a chunky robot.  I did really like his headsculpt though.

Legends has brought about a Headmaster Blurr.  Hrm, Okay.  He had a Nebulan chum in G1, but it changed into a gun.  How does this guy turn out?

Nice. Very nice is the short answer.

ThunderForce IV : Great Gaming Moments

Been a while since I've done one of these, so here's one that's been in the back of my mind for a while, it's the wonderful SHMUP, Thunderforce IV on the Megadrive.  I didn't own this game, I hired it and that's how much this one stuck with me! Wow!

Sweep(s) the Leg, A Legends Scourge review

ScourgeHM (76)

Scourge, the leader of the Sweeps and tracker of um, things across the galaxy.  Working for Galvatron he is a nasty fellow.  NOW he is a headmaster.

I’ve always had a soft spot for Scourge’s weird vehicle mode. 
He’s a boat.

That flies. 

Through space. 

Riiiight, about as much sense as Rodimus’ space camper van.

He is also standing on my  desk?  How does he rate after the wonders of Hardhead and Skullcruncher?

Read on to find out…  oooohhhh Mystical!
