The US Patent Office's website has posted pages for two new trademark applications from Hasbro. One is the name "Movie Edition" and includes a logo - it seems pretty likely this will be the name of the movie line from the big summer leaks. The other, "Cybertron," is specifically filed for in relation to the trademark "Cyberverse" - which seems sensible enough to us! Keep reading for the info, and a look at the Movie Edition logo.
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!
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!
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!
Thanks to Oscar Fung's FB page we have a look at the Universal Studios exclusive Black Snarl figure. This figure's a redeco of the Age of Extinction mold in a very attractive mix of silver-gray and clear white plastic armor plating. No details on when, or even where this fellow will land but it appears to be a possible follow up to the new Bumblebee exclusive. Check out the full gallery mirrored below for more on the Universal Studios Black Snarl.
From the same round of leaks as the big Power of the Primes
news comes a series of other miscellaneous leaks! First up seems to be a series of movie reissue toys which, given by the dates involved, seems to have been cancelled with the first wave to have occurred in April of this year. We also have some other movie-related figures on display as well as some budget-minded figures such as Cyber Battalion Sideswipe and Shockwave! Keep reading to see it all!
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.
