Twitter user Tagoal
has posted some images of the Transformers: The Last Knight
Optimus Prime Clear Version that was released recently to coincide with TF5's Japanese home video debut! Sporting a lot of clear white and blue plastic, this is the Voyager mold available on shelves now (still) in the Premier Edition. It's kind of a shame that basically every version of this mold looks more appealing than the stock retail release, but even that one is a pretty nice toy in and of itself.

From the website of artist Furio Tedeschi we have some new pieces of The Last Knight
concept art from various stages of design. What made this latest batch stand out as interesting was how a number of pieces, such as some of the knight designs, showed clear traces of what would go in to the toyline, possibly marking a few of these pieces as part of the starting point for the design of things like Dragonstorm. Another treat is a few photos of those knight designs as physical set elements from the sound stages - parts of which I personally got to view up close in August of 2016!

' Weibo page, we've got photos of UT R-02 Challenger. This incredibly necessary figure is an unofficial, Third Party take on Movie Optimus Prime as seen in Transformers: Age of Extinction
and Transformers: The Last Knight
. We have to admit: it is impressive how they've managed to make an Optimus Prime from this design almost completely devoid of leftover truck parts. Keep reading for photos!
It sure hasn't been easy for collectors wanting to add one of the best characters from The Last Knight
to their shelves. Stores packed with wave 1 Deluxes have slowed down progress drastically, and the TakaraTomy release, planned for the end of this month, has been mysteriously - and indefinitely - delayed. But still there are ways, and if you must resort to more extreme measures, Cogman is at least a very nice figure, covered in detail, lots of paint wash to bring it out, and some nice poseability. Plus it can readily play with all your Titans Return toys and the other best TLK toy, Nitro! You can find examples of all these things in our gallery of almost 200 photos! Keep reading to get started.

This installment features a page and a half on the Movie The Best lineup coming in early 2018, a page featuring the Leader Class Dragonstorm and the big gimmick toy versiuon, which they depict Optimus Prime riding. The last half of page 3 shows the LG Clonetrons, Windblade, G2 Megatron, and the Prime 1 Studios Sqweeks statue. Click through to see the mirrored pages!
Walmart continues to be the exclusive retailer for all things Movie Hot Rod in the US - though they seem in no hurry to get the Premier Edition toy on shelves. But today a listing has been found on Walmart's website for a Hallmark ornament of the character which will be carried exclusively in Walmart stores. The ornament is shown to be 3 inches tall, and is priced at $7.47, even though it can't be ordered online. The complex details of a movie design seem to have translated less well than did the G1 designs in prior Hallmark efforts. But you can see and judge for youself when you check out all the images in the gallery below!
The effort to promote the home video release of Transformers: The Last Knight
continues as Syfy Wire has been given several pieces of design and concept art from the movie to share. Aside from one "samurai knight" robot design, this mostly concerns location design - and the concept of Megatron negotiating with the US government for the release of several captured Decepticons. There's some nice looking pieces in this small collection, especially the planet shots. You can see them all for yourself in the gallery below!
Well, here's an interesting wrinkle: Amazon has just revealed the existence of Transformers: The Last Knight
Allspark Tech Sqweeks! And most fascinatingly, he's a Starter Pack figure who includes an Allspark Cube... but this one is rechargeable via USB cable! Keep reading for the photos and description.
We have some new full color photos for an upcoming Dr Wu accessory kit. DW-M08 Judgement is a new set of sword and shield for Premier Edition Voyager Class Optimus. The new parts are made larger and more detailed, and in the case of the shield has moving parts. Both pieces are more fully decorated as well. The Weibo post showing these off doesn't give any relevant release details, but based on previous Dr Wu parts sets, this can be expected to be fairly reasonable for what it offers. Check out the full lineup of images, mirrored below.
As part of the effort to promote the home video release of The Last Knight
, Collider has been provided several pieces of concept art for the movie, depicting the ideas that would become major scenes of the movie. Most ended up staying very close to these depictions, while one or two may have been lost to the cutting room floor, or undergone more significant alterations before going to film. We have copies mirrored, but check out the original article link farther down for full resolution - some of them hit about 5000 pixels!
