This page is intended as an unofficial catalog of the Legendary Heroes line from New Age Toys* which will collect my posts about released figures and any available information about upcoming releases.
I will be updating this page as frequently as I discover new information!
Note: I’m using the Hx designations since that’s what they use in their promotions even though they don’t actually appear in that format on the final packaging.
Character names in this line appear to lean heavily on pop-culture references, most frequently movie titles. There have been no official statements to back up the source of these names so the “Named After” information is pure speculation but I thought it was interesting enough to include.
Sadly, there will never be one of these in my collection since only 50 were ever made, all of which were given away to Weibo users:
NA “Heart of Gold” limited fully transparent lottery – 50 copies in order to thank you for your support – to qualify, tag @NA_NEWAGE, and @ three friends, before the end of next month with the @ Weibo draw platform…
New Age Toys Weibo post 2018-7-31 14:43 (my best interpretation based on Bing and Google translations)
** Ok, I’m fudging this designation to make it fit. As far as I know it never had a number since it was not a commercial release.
According to NOCV on TFW2005, New Age Toys has another thirteen molds in the works! If true, it’s truly shocking how fast this company is moving!
I would expect these unseen molds to be released next year with the remainder of this year being filled with the last of December’s reveals and their repaints. With luck, we’ll get to see some of the new molds before the end of the year.
I’ve been thinking about the new molds and realized that, excluding the cassettes, there are exactly 13 fully unique molds from the 1984 pack-in catalog that New Age has yet to release:
The original Cliffjumper was very similar mold to Bumblebee so, to make this thought work, I’m presuming that they would heavily remold Flipper for their version.
A few more things that I expect to see:
H7/H8 Repaints: seem’s like a given, especially Diaclone black McCoy
Clear Datsuns: with the announcement of the two clear H2 releases this seems highly likely
A colored render or production sample of Agamenmnon can’t be too far away.
Now that they’ve started on G2, I would love to see a metallic gold G2 Flipper. I’ve always wanted a gold Gremlin (even bought an extra to customize) but a head swap would be so much easier!
H13 ? (Optimus Prime)
Based on an April 1st post, one of the upcoming molds could be either Optimus Prime or a Ninja Turtle.
* The Company Name
There seems to be some confusion about what the actual name of the company is (at least on the part of their graphic designers). On all of the H1 packages and in their official logo (below) there is a space between “New” and “Age” but on newer packages and their social media accounts (Facebook, Weibo) there is no space. The packaging for Harry and Manero drop “Toys” from the name as well. I’m sticking with “New Age Toys” since that makes the most sense (especially considering that “Newage” keeps autocorrecting to “Sewage”!).
