The translation isn't super-helpful - for one thing it lists Megatron's name as "Invincible Micronesia," even if that is wonderful - but it appears that an Asian convention is getting a limited edition of 2107 gold-plated Transformers: The Last Knight
Megatron figures! If you're into the Lucky Draw style, it's a pretty nice-looking figure... but one I don't think I'd be wanting to try and transform any time soon. Keep reading for photos from the Facebook page of tf.bizonline.me!
Alien Attack Toys, via their Weibo page, has revealed the prototype for an upcoming figure they're working on. Firage is the utterly indecipherable codename they've given to a robot based on Mirage, or Dino as he was referred to in Dark of The Moon
, the red Ferrari robot that never got a full size toy, and who you shouldn't be ashamed to admit you forgot existed, because we did too. Reportedly the figure will be around 6 inches tall in robot mode, and is expected to cost about $55, though that pricing may reflect mainland Asia sales with other territories being priced higher.

From the same round of leaks as the big Power of the Primes
news comes a series of other miscellaneous leaks! First up seems to be a series of movie reissue toys which, given by the dates involved, seems to have been cancelled with the first wave to have occurred in April of this year. We also have some other movie-related figures on display as well as some budget-minded figures such as Cyber Battalion Sideswipe and Shockwave! Keep reading to see it all!
Autobase Aichi has posted a couple of images of the new Universal Studios Store exclusive version of Movie Snarl! If a Lemon-Lime Dinobot isn't to your liking and you've got plenty enough G1-color Snarls already, Transformers: The Last Knight
Snarl trades vibrant colors in for a more somber and screen-accurate gunmetal color. Keep reading to see the photos!
This one is kind of neat: Simba Dickie/Smoby Toys' RC Ultimate Bumblebee is a remote-controlled Bumblebee that transforms, very simply, into a robot. But the new wrinkle is that the toy has a camera you can use to drive when the remote is combined with a smartphone. That's pretty neat! But it'll also cost you: the price via Amazon Spain is about 154 Euros, or around $175 USD. Keep reading to see the photos.
Been thinking about cosplaying as Optimus Prime, Megatron, or King Arthur? Japanese Cosplay prop company goodluck has you covered with three new replica swords from Transformers: The Last Knight
! Admittedly they'll cost you, with Prime's sword running about $200, Megatron's $130, and Excalibur about $100. But keep reading to see the photos from Amazon Japan - and beware spoilers about the current owner of Excalibur if you click through to the product pages there!
Japanese fan @Alfes2010 has posted a couple of images to Twitter of the TakaraTomy Summer giveaway, the Gold Vector Shield! The counterpart to the Silver Temenos Sword given away in Spring, this is Optimus Prime's Age of Extinction
gun-shield in a highly noticeable coating of vacuum-metalized gold. Keep reading to see!
Various members of the TFW2005 boards have dug up a variety of Transformers: The Last Knight
concept art! We've got concept designs for Canopy - who once was intended to have his own body instead of reusing an existing character model - as well as Daytrader, who is clearly Robot Steve Buscemi. There's also an image of a fight between Drift and Mohawk that never happened, as well as some interesting concept images that made it to the film largely unchanged. Keep reading to see, but mind potential Spoilers
if you haven't seen the film and are trying to remain unspoiled three weeks in.
Facebook user Jacky Ng
has posted some images of the Limted Edition variant of the Optimus Prime Voice Changer Helmet! This version sports purple lenses to reflect Optimus' stint as the brainwashed "Nemesis Prime" in Transformers: The Last Knight
- but it's currently unknown if the voice chip reflects this. Keep reading to see the photos, especially the neat one from inside the helmet!
The plot thickens! A photo by one owenchengzixuan
has shown the recently-discovered reissue of 2007 Leader Optimus Prime
in Transformers Tribute
packaging. This is the same subline that the Orion Pax/War For Cybertron Optimus Prime
2-pack is a part of. But we still don't know its purpose, or what stores will be carrying this oddball assortment of... well, so far it's an assortment of Optimus Primes! Keep reading to see the photo.
Tiny Turbo Changers have been one of the most fun additions to the Transformers: The Last Knight
lineup. Blind-bagged Transformers figures that actually transform? Finally!
And if you want a less blind shot at some of them that adds accessories into the mix, UK retailer Argos has posted photos of their shared exclusive 3-pack that will be available at Target stores in the US. Keep reading to see!
Was Scorn in the movie? I didn't see him. Of course things go by so fast in one of those it's easy to miss stuff. But this Voyager-class Scorn is looking pretty good in new photos from TFND's Blacklai
! Most interesting is that, while the robot mode is half again as tall as the Age of Extinction
Deluxe, the dino modes are pretty similar in overall length, if not bulk. Keep reading to see!
Thanks to RFC's Rob Springer
for the tip! A Twitter account associated with Lights! Camera! Action! Studios in the Universal Studios Japan park has posted images of a new shirt being sold there. It's branded specifically USJ, and shows Optimus Prime and Bumblebee despite the fact that Transformers: The Ride
is not currently part of the Japanese theme park. Does this mean something? LCA doesn't seem to be sure, but hopefully for our friends and readers in Japan it does. Keep reading to see the shirt!
Though we're no closer to an answer on the what or why of it, we have some additional pictures of the unknown redeco of the first movie toyline's Leader Class Optimus Prime from Weibo user NOTRAB. This time it can be seen in robot mode in a series of photos with various movie Primes gathered together. It also offers a neat look at both the design lineage of the character model, and the various stages of its execution, with 2007 on the left, and MPM-4 over on the right. The 2007 Leader toy almost looks like it's from an entirely different property! Click through to see the photos mirrored below.
Planet Iacon earlier this morning shared photos from Ming-zhe Li of a new products display at a retail location in Taiwan. Apart from the unexpected reveal of the Clones Two-Pack, all of Titans Return wave 5 is there, including confirmation of Wolfwire reshipping as part of that Deluxe assortment. Some The Last Knight toys are shown, but more interesting is a shelf with the previously revealed SDCC exclusives which are joined by one other set we haven't seen linked to the event so far. Keep reading to find out more!
