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.
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.
From Sunson Son
on Facebook, by way of TFW2005, we have photos of a life-sized, metal replica of the Autobot Matrix of Leadership as seen in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen!
The only other thing we currently know about this replica, which is being produced by a company known as Visual Time Collectibles, is that it will be limited to a run of 350 pieces. Which, given what high-end Transformers movie collectibles tend to run price-wise, is probably going to be plenty. Keep reading to see!
Following up on yesterday's magazine leak,
TakaraTomy has put up a page and photos for MB-EX Movie The Best
Laserbeak! Replicating a scene from Transformers: Dark Of The Moon,
the site confirms that the figure is a Wonderfes exclusive with leftovers hitting Cybertron Satellite stores and TakaraTomy Mall in September. None of which ship overseas. So keep reading and, again, get ready to contact your middleman in Japan!
It's magazine scans season, and we've got our first scoop. Wonderfest is coming at the end of July! And that means more exclusives - in this case, a pink Bumblebee figure to recreate a scene featuring Laserbeak from Dark Of The Moon
that, quite frankly, I can't remember at all. Keep reading to see the photo while I congratulate myself on successfully blocking out one of these films!
TFW2005 user Actar
has posted images of MPM-3 Bumblebee at his local ToysRUs in Singapore! The Movie Masterpiece figure was sighted alongside the elusive (for now) Transformers: The Last Knight
Wave 2 Premier Edition figures - including the eagerly-awaited Leader-class Megatron. Keep reading to see!
It's virtually impossible to make reference to a movie Optimus Prime's face without referencing "give me your face" from Revenge of The Fallen
. MPM-4 Optimus Prime may not literally give you his face, but these new pictures of the Movie Masterpiece figure show off some up close looks, plus reveal the means of swapping between faceplate or open face: A riveted swivel joint. It might be as mechanically impressive as the new Leader Megatron's lever-based mask gimmick, but it is effective. Click through to see the pictures via Weibo user NOTRAB.
Thanks to Yenting Lai on the TFND Facebook group, we've got a nice collection of photos showing MPM-3 Bumblebee. The first release in the renewed Movie Masterpiece line, this is the most accurate representation of Bumblebee's earlier movie appearance, and this gallery gives us some better angles to see how that plays out. And an important reveal is the relative scale between Bumblebee and G1 Autobot Car MPs. You can find this all in the album below!
Ever wonder what the huge, hyper-detailed, movie Transformers statues from Prime 1 Studio look like in-package? Thanks to a poster on Baidu, now we know! This is a really impressive piece, a statue that looks like it walked out of the 2007 movie, standing at 50 centimeters or over a foot and a half tall. Keep reading to see the images, which we've mirrored here for your convenience!
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
as it is currently titled on the poster has been said to skew younger, and have a smaller robot cast. There was also the hint that the 1980's might be the target time period for the story. You can find the image that was on display at the expo mirrored below.
The US Patent Office has received a registration for a new logo from Hasbro showing a stylized bee in gray. The logo is being trademarked for use in relation to "Toy action figures, toy vehicles and toy robots convertible into other visual toy forms" - the usual legal descriptor with USPTO for Transformers toys. So it looks like we've got the logo to go with next year's Bumblebee-themed Transformers side-story movie! Keep reading to see.
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. A peerless scientist with deadly efficiency and a cold devotion to logic, he is one of the very few who could rival Megatron. Shockwave is ready and willing to destroy the Autobots with his arm-mounted AstroMag Cannon.
Thanks again to Alfes2010 who's been rounding up the lasted Transformers Movie The Best toys just released in Japan. Get a look at the movie Dinobot team figures MB-09 Dinorider Grimlock and MB-10 Dinorider Strafe that are looking much more colorful that the first editions.
