Premier Edition is the "Generations Series" of The Last Knight, though with a bit more of a "Black Series" flavor, to take a categorization hint from Star Wars. But from the early leaks of the Deluxe assortment it was clear that it wasn't actually the premiere of every toy in Premier. Half of Deluxe wave 1 is reuses from Age of Extinction, and Voyager Grimlock takes the ratio farther. With Toy Fair's reveals now, we want to look and see how much farther this might go.

As we come up on the last weekend of the month, it's time for new toys in Japan, and highly anticipated on that score is Masterpiece Cheetor. Twitter user @ZEAMTIGER has already gotten hold of Cheetor and has been sending out a variety of photos giving us our first real in hand look. Though right now no comparisons with MP Optimus Primal are shown, you can see Cheetor side by side with the Generations molds of Rattrap and Rhinox, showing how one scales well and the other... doesn't. The photos are mirrored in the album below, click through to take a look now!

Fan favorite artist Nick Roche has been doing alternate covers for Transformers: Lost Light

of characters in space, but they're not looking lost anymore. Keep reading to get a good look at Roche's inking skills on the black and white lineart, plus colors by Josh Burcham!
So when you look at this, do you focus on the spidery legs - Airachnid? Blackarachnia? Tarantulas, fresh off his appearance in Sins of the Wreckers
? - or do you focus on Onslaught and Blast Off? Whatever drew your eye first, Till All Are One
artist Sara Pitre-Durocher has posted some looks at the making of the cover, including several sketch passes where the pose of the Combaticons was refined, and a color test! Keep reading to see!
Perfect Effect has posted new images of the one thing many of us have been wanting to make their Leader-class Super Ginrai/Powermaster Optimus Prime figure complete: Ginrai! The Deluxe-ish sized figure is looking pretty poseable, and the new grayscale images also show off the new chest frame that need to be installed for the figure. And since you have to do that, it should
be possible to use this on either variation of the mold! Keep reading to see.
Loopaza Mega Store has posted Figure-Oh (Figure King)
scans to their Facebook page! The pages are split somewhat evenly between the AU x Transformers Infobar transforming phone toys, and of course Transformers: The Last Knight

Just in this morning via Previews World, we've got a look at the upcoming Transformers titles heading to shop this May. Till All Are One
looks toward settling business with one of the lost tribes that just isn't playing nice with the rest of the class, Optimus Prime
vaguely spoils the conclusion to its prior issue, and Lost Light
makes uncertain allusions to perhaps a great deal of death that probably doesn't really happen! Full summaries and cover previews below, so keep reading - just be careful as some of this could spoil other unreleased issues!
About a year ago, Toys Alliance revealed MAS-01, a licensed, large-scale figure of G1 Optimus Prime. Recently they've posted a teaser on Facebook showing off what will be the second entry in their Mega Action Series. Probably coming as no surprise, Optimus is followed by Megatron. The image now is semi-obscured, and only shows the upper half of the figure's body clearly, but it's easy enough to see that the design basically follows what MAS-01 was doing, using the G1 design with some reimagining. No further details are revealed, but we expect to see more soon. Click through for the full image!
