Looks like the two foot tall Unicron is not the end for statuary from Soldier Story. The generously-described "lamp" that depicts Unicron standing atop Cybertron's surface is apparently to be joined in future by a planet mode Unicron as well. No indication of its specific light up elements yet, though it seems to be more of a prototype, at least judging by its stand being partly comprised of Bandai Action Base parts. Also shown was a grey prototype for Rodimus Prime unleashing the power of the Matrix. It's a bit easier to guess what will light up on that one! Check out the pictures below.
Ever since Toy Fair, Hasbro has been letting us know to look forward to April 24th, as that would be the launch day for Transformers The Last Knight toys. Also that we could expect merchandise from the other lines to hit shelves at about the same time. But as many of you probably know, while the major online toy retailers have gone live with listings for wave 1, more likely than not you were presented with a lot of nothing if you went looking at your local brick and mortar. What happened, and why aren't the toys out in stores for the launch day? Keep reading to find out more!
JohnRedcorn - or "Poormans Michael Bay" as he apparently goes by on Youtube - has gotten hold of a Premier Edition Megatron from The Last Knight Voyager wave 2. He's shared a nice little gallery of photos of the figure, showing off robot and vehicle modes, plus comparisons with a couple of Optimus Primes, ROTF Megatron, and AOE Galvatron for good measure. Additionally he's made a video showing the transformation from robot to vehicle and back. You can find all of that in the full post below - but you may want to mute the video when you go to check it out.
Loopaza on Facebook has shared out the Transformers-relevant pages from this month's Figure King Magazine. We got a preview of it a couple days ago, focused on the Legends Series Kup and Hot Rod. These new high res scans show very well the detail of the figures' new parts and Targetmasters in testshot form. Also included is exclusive Black Convoy, a DOTM Shockwave statue, and the current campaign sword for The Last Knight toys, plus a full page article about the movie. We've got the pages below, plus a crop out of the Legends testshot panel, so click through and check them out!
The official Transformers Facebook page has posted a new video showing off the Optimus Prime and Megatron Voice Changer Helmets! Voice actors Peter Cullen and Frank Welker appear brandishing their respective masks, encouraging Facebook users to "Reveal Your Shield" - declare your allegiance to the Autobots or Decepticons. It's a short but fun video, with Welker and Cullen enjoying each other's company as always. Keep reading to see!
It looks like FansHobby's Gunfighter II (G2 Laser Optimus) is getting a fair bit of attention this week. FansHobby have posted a quick gallery of the current testshot, showing the poseability and accessories primarily. They note that at least some of these images are partially Photoshopped to represent the intended final deco, due to the recently highlighted design alterations delaying their ability to have their factory prepare them a deco proof sample right now. But most of the photos seem to clearly depict the plastic-colors testshot with no extra colors added anyway. Gunfighter II is expected to release in June. Keep reading for the mirrored gallery!
We've got a couple more pieces of visual assets to see tonight, from our regular Weibo source. Both are shaped and laid out like they might be samples for side panels of boxes. One uses a cropped version of the Optimus/Megatron battle scene we saw the other day
. The other is a paired shot of Bumblebee and Hot Rod together. Both just have standard placeholder text, showing where package copy would fit in the layout, so no information is to be gleaned. But whatever the details, it looks more and more like additional special sets are coming to the toyline! Click through for the images.
Entertainment Weekly featured an article about Hot Rod in one of their latest issues, and has this weekend also made that content available online. The article talks in some detail about Hot Rod and at least his initial role in the movie - explaining the context for the detailed image we saw recently.
A little comes out about Laura Haddock's character and her importance as well. All of this is a bit spoiler-leaning, but if you're okay with that, you can find select excerpts below!

Simon Chan on Facebook shared a couple of pictures of pages from what is probably the new issue of Figure King. As it typically goes, the magazine gives a nice little focus on the newly revealed Legends Series items, repeating the stock photos (including the corrected teal Kup) seen online. A special extra comes with photos showing the new parts for Kup and Hot Rod applied to their Hasbro instances, making it easy to see what's new - and proving Hot Rod's whole new chest is clear plastic. The Targetmasters are also shown as unpainted testshots, making their clear plastic parts obvious as well. Click through to take a look!
