Transformers The Last Knight - Megatron Premier Edition Figure Prototype Leaked
ExVee - Thursday, February 16, 2017
We've done well to get this close to Toy Fair this year without any substantive leaks. But it seems like the overseas sources are trying to sneak one through at the 11th hour, as we get our first look at the toy for Megatron in the The Last Knight line. What is presumably a Premier Edition Voyager is seen as a solid white testshot, with a full look at the alternate mode, and a head and chest shot of the robot to help verify its identity as Megatron. Details are hard to make out at this stage (hence why these usually get painted grey), but we're bound to see more of this very soon. Keep reading to see both photos from alucardlee.
In a presentation video likening the subjects of its nominations to toxic waste, the Razzies, AKA the Golden Raspberry Awards, have announced their nominations for the worst of 2017. As you might expect, Transformers: The Last Knight indeed has been nominated, tying Age of Extinction with nine nominations. That's the record for the franchise! Keep reading for specifics on the nominations along with an announcement video for the three top categories.
Everybody loves a good deal, and we wanted to share a few that we randomly found on Amazon today. Disclaimers, of course: Amazon pricing fluctuates with inventory levels, so while the pricing noted here is accurate to time of writing, it may vary over time; second, pricing and availability is, as far as we know, for US customers only and may not correspond to pricing on your local flavor of Amazon. With that said, let's look at some toys!
One of the aspects of the Transformers movie franchise that rarely if ever generates discontent are the scores by Steve Jablonsky.

The Autobots Unite subline from The Last Knight sure turned out oddly. What was originally Walmart's exclusive contribution to the toyline largely never materialized through Walmart at all. Among them is a One Step Turbo Changer set of Bumblebee and Hot Rod, which we discovered this evening at a Ross location in middle Tennessee. This joins the Legion Class two packs in calling the closeout chain home after never finding space on Walmart's shelves. You can find a photo of the find below. The set was priced at $11.99.
