Transformers 5 The Last Knight
Transformers: The Last Knight: Wave 1 Case Breakdowns, Plus Codenames Demystified (A Little)
RAC - Monday, February 27, 2017


TFW2005 has posted a couple of stories today with some interesting insights into the impending Transformers: The Last Knight toyline! Most notably, they've now posted (fully-codenamed) case breakdowns for Wave 1 of the toyline! Using this info, they're suggesting that Barricade is the character code-named "Mars," and that Bumblebee is codename "Saturn." Keep reading for more info and our analysis of the situation! Here's the case breakdowns:

Transformers: The Last Knight Toyline Wave 1

Armor Up Turbo Changers* (SKU: HSBC0886AS00)

C1317AS00 TRA MV5 TURBO CHANGER JUPITER x 1
C1318AS00 TRA MV5 TURBO CHANGER MOON x 1
C1319AS00 TRA MV5 TURBO CHANGER SATURN x 1

1-Step Turbo Changers (SKU: HSBC0884AS00)

C1311AS00 TRA MV5 1 STEP GAS GIANT x 2
C1312AS00 TRA MV5 1 STEP FOUR MOONS x 2
C1313AS00 TRA MV5 1 STEP MARS x 2
C1314AS00 TRA MV5 1 STEP SUPERNOVA x 2

Tiny Turbo Changers (SKU: HSBC0882AS00)

C0882AS00 TRA MV5 TINY TURBO CHANGERS x 24

Deluxe Class (SKU: HSBC0887AS00)

C1320AS00 TRA MV5 PRE DLX GAS GIANT x 2
C1321AS00 TRA MV5 PRE DLX MARS x 2
C1322AS00 TRA MV5 PRE DLX GAMMA RAY x 2
C1323AS00 TRA MV5 PRE DLX SHOOTING STAR x 2

Legion Class (SKU: HSBC0889AS00)

C1326AS00 TRA MV5 LEGION FOUR MOONS x 2
C1327AS00 TRA MV5 LEGION GAS GIANT x 2
C1328AS00 TRA MV5 LEGION LUNAR ECLIPSE x 2
C1329AS00 TRA MV5 LEGION MARS x 2

Voyager Class (SKU: HSBC0891AS00)

C1333AS00 TRA MV5 PRE VOYAGER LUNAR ECLIPSE x 1
C1334AS00 TRA MV5 PRE VOYAGER JUPITER x 1


Alright, so let's start with the idea that Barricade is Mars. This seems like a pretty good bet based on what we know; the entire first assortment of the Premier Edition Deluxes is known, and when you compare to TakaraTomy's mystery listing - TLK-02 - Barricade seems like the obvious choice. Although... they freely announced the quick change Barricade, TLK-08, so why secrecy there? It makes little sense, but embargoes and corporate secrecy are like that sometimes.

If Bumblebee is Saturn, this means he has to have two separate codenames, because there is no "Saturn" in the Deluxe wave. If so, I'm thinking that "Gas Giant" is Bumblebee's other codename, because it repeats at the most pricepoints and at points where we've seen Bumblebee toys to be: Deluxe, Legion, etc.

What other names can we work out? Thanks to this listing, we can compare to the mystery listings above and work some things out. But we also get a few more mysteries. Comparing the lists, we get Grimlock as "Lunar Eclipse" if we assume "Gas Giant" = Bumblebee and "Mars" = Barricade. But that means that Optimus Prime would also have two codenames: "Jupiter" in the Voyager assortment, and "Four Moons" in the Legion class. This, too, checks out agains the 1-Step Turbo Changers assortment, and further narrows down "Supernova" as Hound.

So, here's what we know after all this:

"Jupiter" and "Four Moons" both seem to be Optimus Prime. One evil, one his normal movie self maybe?

"Gas Giant" and possibly "Saturn" both seem to be Bumblebee. Probably different codenames based on which body he's in?

"Mars" does indeed seem to be Barricade.

"Lunar Eclipse" is Grimlock.

"Supernova" is Hound.

The only code names on this list we haven't definitively nailed down are "Gamma Ray" and "Shooting Star." These pretty much have to correspond to Decepticon Berserker and Dinobot Slash, but we can't say for certain which is which.

More Transformers 5 The Last Knight News
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.
TFW2005 user GiganGoji has reported that yes, Cogman has been found in a US store! Specifically he was found in a ToysRUs in Olympia, Washington. This end-of-line figure is not only of one of the more entertaining characters in Transformers: The Last Knight, but is also compatible with all your Titans Return figures! Keep reading for more details.
You can't tell me that Transformers The Last Knight wouldn't have been more entertaining if the movie's conflict was resolved by a rap battle between ...well, anyone really. But for purposes of argument I'm gonna go with Nitro Zeus and Cogman. Unfortunately that didn't happen. But to promote the Leader Class Megatron and Calibur Optimus Prime, TakaraTomy did engage the services of two Japanese rappers to extol the virtues of the two toys in a rap battle. It's all in Japanese, naturally, but it's more than hilarious enough to be worth a look. You'll find the video embedded in the full post just below!
The robots in disguise are visiting in Sioux Falls on Wednesday. Optimus Prime and several other characters from the Transformer films are visiting two Sioux Falls Walmarts to promote the most-recent film in the series, "Transformers: The Last Knight." The retail tour is a partnership between Hasbro and Walmart.
Amazon's exclusive Bumblebee Evolution 3 pack is now in stock! The Transformers Tribute set features three movie Bumblebees - the 2007 line's Classic Camaro, the "stealth colors" Classic Camaro from Age of Extinction, and the brand new mold Deluxe for The Last Knight Premier Edition. The set is priced at $59.99, which may feel a bit steep for two old molds and one current, but you also get some excellent themed packaging as part of the deal. Plus for a lot of people this may be the easiest access right now to the Premier Edition wave 3 Bumblebee mold! Keep reading for the product link.
