Man, that was quick: TakaraTomy has published photos of their Movie The Best
offerings for March 2018 as well! March will see releases of MB-16 Jetfire, MB-17 Optimus Prime Revenge Version, MB-18 Warhammer Bumblebee, MB-19 Hound, and MB-20 Nemesis Prime. Keep reading for more details!
Via Twitter, TakaraTomy has released a teaser image showing off the Movie The Best releases we learned about earlier this week. Not just confirming the listings we saw, this answers some questions about the toys that will be put to use. As it turns out, a reasonable quantity of The Last Knight toys are figuring in to the 2018 lineup including Leader Megatron, Hound, Bumblebee, and the current Optimus mold in the Nemesis Prime role. You can check out the full size image previewing the whole assortment just below in the full post!
Be aware! If you're at HasCon 2017, be advised: contrary to the printed schedule and what we reported on earlier, the Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye
Brand Panel time has been changed from 5:30 PM EDT to TEN MINUTES FROM THIS POSTING, 11:30 AM EDT.
Even the printed schedules are incorrect on this, with the website being the only indicator. Thanks to Eric Crownover
for confirming this for us!
The Transformers Cars
Facebook page has also posted images of the Prototypes display at HasCon 2017! There's a lot of grayscale figures from lines of recent years on display, and even a few color pieces like an unproduced Battle Damage War For Cybertron
Bumblebee! But also, there's a grayscale copy of Power of the Primes
Voyager Starscream... and he's wearing his special "Bucklers," which are undeniably dedicated feet for his Combiner Mode! Keep reading to see it all!
Having taken place this week, the Christmas Toy Fair expo in Japan has afforded us a first look at Movie The Best Jetfire, which was initially revealed to us through retailer listings just days ago. From what little coverage we could find of the Transformers displays, it didn't seem like very much new was on hand. A clear look at Jetfire was most notable among other movie products we've seen many times already. An MP Bumblebee was displayed as well to promote the upcoming reissue in February. Sadly none of the newly listed Legends toys seemed to be shown during this event. Keep reading to see the photos!
Thanks to heo geun
we have a look at some of the contents from the latest issue of Figure King Magazine, which has a two page feature on TakaraTomy's release of MPM-4 Optimus Prime. The North American version of the figure is already available at Toys R Us in some areas, so we're already familiar with the toy to some degree. What's important here is deco changes, though it seems that the sample photographed for the magazine may be the same unit shown at Wonderfest recently, which may have been slightly incomplete deco-wise. But we're sure to see plenty more of this before release to make sure. Click through to see the magazine photos!
Sporting a fancy package and improved paint, this new release of Transformers: The Last Knight
Premier Edition Voyager Optimus Prime is a $50 version of a toy that already should never have been $30 at retail. Which is not to say it's bad. It's actually pretty good! But given that it's difficult if not impossible to remove from its package without causing damage, and you don't actually have any guarantee of receiving the bonus tire segment used on the set of the film, it's really hard to defend the cost. Especially next to Primitive Prime. Keep reading for a gallery of 61 images!
Our anonymous Walmart source has found another exclusive! The Autobots Unite
Flip Change Bumblebee is the second item found with that branding after Flip Change Hot Rod. No word on some of the other items, such as Deluxe Hot Rod, but maybe if we're lucky their release will be coordinated with the home video push. Keep reading to see the photo!
TakaraTomy's announced three more months' worth of Transformers: The Last Knight
promos! Starting September 16th, anyone who buys more than 2000 Yen of movie toys in participating Japanese stores will get a DVD with the stop-motion sequences and transformation videos TakaraTomy has created for the movie line. And then starting in October we've got more vac-metal accessory giveaways. Keep reading to see!
It's out now, and has been spotted at a Danville, Virginia
by no less than Radio Free Cybertron's
own "Headmaster" Don Ferguson
! This is the Transformers: Dark Of The Moon
Voyager mold with clear red plastic equipment that can be used to "reveal" the character's affiliation via a symbol scrambled in the classic Tech-Spec style. Keep reading for in-package photos courtesy of Headmaster Don!
Facebook's built-in translator is... not perfect, let's say. Charitably. The name in the headline, "Gold Plating Invincible Admiral Micronesia" is how Facebook translates "Lucky Draw Leader Class Megatron" out of Chinese. Keep reading for the photo, via tfbizonline.me
Autobase Aichi has posted images of the packaging for the Transformers Tribute Bumblebee Evolutions 3-pack, and it's definitely fancier than the Orion Pax/Optimus Prime set! The three Deluxes - 2007 Vintage Camaro Bumblebee, Dark of the Moon
Modern Bumblebee, and Age of Extinction
Vintage Camaro Bumblebee - come in a package designed to look like a garage. Keep reading to see!
That truck... it's the wrong color, but that's got to be Optimus Prime. Right? Wrong!
This is the Mighty Thor, famous member of the... "Avfngcrs"
!? Twitter user @Sranngurenn has posted images of this fantastic object, and we've mirrored them here for your entertainment. Keep reading to see them all!
Dirty secret: as much as we like Transformers that turn into recognizeable (and sometimes even working) objects, like the Device Label figures and the MicroChange side of G1... we have completely lost track of how many versions of the AU Infobar x Transformers figure there are. All we can say for sure of this particular example, thanks to TakaraTomy, is that it's the "Annin Version" and seems to have a Movie Optimus Prime-inspired deco. It'll be out in mid-December in Japan for 5400 Yen. Keep reading for photos!
Twitter user @chromless, also known as くろさび ("Kurosabi") has posted a set of images of the Wonderfes-exclusive Movie The Best Laserbeak! Based on a specific scene in Transformers: Dark of the Moon
, this pink recolor of Bumblebee is actually really nice looking. Keep reading to see for yourself!
