Just in from Licensing Expo in Las Vegas via comingsoon.net, we have our first piece of promotional material for the 2018 Transformers movie, which will focus on Bumblebee at some point before the main film series. Transformers Universe: Bumblebee

Weibo user NOTRAB has shared another update of photos featuring the just-revealed MPM-4 Movie Masterpiece Optimus Prime. This batch focuses on answering one of the most important questions: How big is it? Particularly how tall compared to Revenge of The Fallen Leader Class Optimus, long considered to be a high point in engineering this design. At the same time, these side by side comparisons should help dispel any notion of this being a retool of that prior figure, as every visible part between them is very clearly different. The photos are mirrored below, click through and check it out.

Prime 1 Studio is proud to present MMTFM-14: Shockwave from The Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Shockwave was left to watch Cybertron by Megatron long ago, arriving on Earth to hunt for the AllSpark shortly after Megatron.
