Wonder Festival 2017 Winter is this weekend in Japan, and to celebrate TakaraTomy is giving away yet another
run of that clear plastic (old) Legends scale Optimus Prime, which by now has to be the least rare and least exclusive rare exclusive in history. They've also released the tie-in comic for the LG-EX Headmasters set which will debut at Wonderfest and go on to be sold at Cybertron Satellite stores in Japan. The comic introduces a new concept: Double Headmasters.

Hot on the heels of its first appearance last night,
Weibo user citssd
has posted the first out-of-package look at Transformers: The Last Knight
Premier Edition Grimlock! The Voyager-class figure is a
color of the Age of Extinction
version painted to match the movie. Keep reading to have a closer look!
TakaraTomy has posted new images of their Metal Collection
) figures of Transformers: Dark Of The Moon
Optimus Prime and Bumblebee! Due out at the end of March, these diecast metal figures are small but only run 1,080 Yen each. (The size is more more pronounced when you realize the average height for a Japanese man is five feet, seven inches and the odds are against that hand being terribly big.) Keep reading to have a look!
Twitter user ROUGE03 shared a few photos recently, in order to demonstrate whether Movie The Best line figures really are "the best". Side by side photos show Megatron, Shockwave, Bumblebee and Optimus Prime with their prior line equivalents, going all the way back to Revenge of The Fallen. In each case, the The Best release is on the right, and while Bumblebee seems not to show huge obvious differences, each of the others stand out more clearly. We've mirrored the photos so you can judge for yourself who did it better - and let us know down below!
Via Autobase Aichi, we've got more images of Premier Edition Deluxe Berserker - and one of them shows off the instruction sheet which gives us the identity of the final Wave 1 Deluxe: Dinobot Slash!
Whether this is a reused Age of Extinction
mold or an-all new creation we don't currently know for certain, but that lineart looks markedly different from the existing Deluxe mold. Keep reading to see!
Just in from Taobao seller zairj2010, We have a packaged image of a "Movie The Best" MB04 Shockwave from Takara Tomy.
This is one of the four figures that are said to be reissued in the Japan starting in Feburary 4th. Read on to see the images below.
Legends Bumblebee isn't bad, strictly speaking. He's just made in the image of a far superior toy, Classics
Bumblebee. And he has a few oddball design choices, like quarter-panel shoulders. But if you want a toy in scale with your other Mini-Car Legends or are a Bumblebee Fiend like IDW's Josh Perez, then he's right up your alley! If not... well, he can still seat a Titan Master! A full review is in the works but for now, click here to see our gallery of 48 photos!
Prime 1 Studio is proud to present MMTFM-12 JAZZ from Transformers film. First Lieutenant Jazz is one happy-go-lucky Autobot. Good-natured and always able to take things in stride, he provides a decent contrast to the more serious demeanor of Ironhide or Optimus Prime himself. He's also a talker, something Ironhide and Prime like to tease him about. He might be the smallest Autobot but he's by no means a coward, willing to take on any foe, big or small.
We've been getting a slow but steady trickle of Transformers: The Last Knight
merchandise news, most notably regarding the new Voyager-scaled Optimus Prime and the Optimus Prime Voice Changer Helmet. Now, thanks to the Taipei Movie & Toy Convention, we can see in-package images of the latter! Looks like Last Knight
packaging isn't terribly far removed from Age of Extinction
- though we can hope it will be a bit easier to tell the Generations figures from the One Step Changers at a glance. Keep reading to see the images!
Loopaza Mega Store has posted a pair of scans from Figure Oh (Figure King)
magazine showing off the upcoming TakaraTomy 10th Anniversary rerelease of ROTF Leader class Optimus Prime! Prime sports a lot of weapons, including his arm blades and infamous "facehooks." And, the mold has been upgraded with new features like articulated fingers! Keep reading to see the images.
Prime1Studio has posted images of the latest in their line of super high-quality movie Transformer statues: Ratchet! Limited to 750 pieces at $1200 each, this 26" statue is a really nice rendition of the Autobot medic. Keep reading to see!
Via Instagram, Prime 1 Studios has shared a teaser for another upcoming statue. Their movie-based offers continue as this piece is based on Jazz as he appeared in the first live action movie. Given there is some lower body visible in the photo, we'll assume this depicts Jazz before his unfortunate encounter with Megatron near the end of the movie. Pricing and other release info was not provided with this image, but we're sure that will be shared soon. Click through to have a look!
Tonight we have some very good looks at the 10th anniversary lineup TakaraTomy is putting together for the Transformers movie series, heading to retail in early 2017. Celebrating the entire franchise rather than just the first movie, there's a wide assortment of characters represented, many with upgraded decos, and at least two with new accessories as well. Along with this stock photo batch via Hobbybase on Facebook, we have large, clear images of Leo Prime, the Lio Convoy based redeco of Alpha Trion in the Legends series. Click through to check it all out!
2017 marks ten years since the release of the first Transformers movie, and to celebrate how old we all now feel from hearing that, site sponsor TFSource has posted preorders with "DO NOT COPY" catalog photos of TakaraTomy's 10th Anniversary series! Eleven movie figures will be reissues between February and March of next year, with the usual Takara level of extra paint expected. There are also articulated rider mini-figures of Optimus Prime and Bumblebee included with Grimlock and Strafe! Keep reading to see the full listings with each figure's original release.
This is, in my opinion, the best news about Transformers: The Last Knight
we've gotten so far. Hound, the Autobot commando played to such great effect by John Goodman, is officially confirmed as returning for TF5! The fat ballerina who takes scalps and slits throats has been redesigned just like the rest of the Autobots, and appears to now be a medic, or at least wearing one's gear. Keep reading to see!
