The Last Knight TakaraTomy Cogman Finally Gets Revised Release Date!
ExVee - Thursday, November 09, 2017
We reported in September that the release of TLK-29 Cogman, originally planned for the end of October, had been delayed with no followup release date given. It's taken a while, but we finally have some good news on this story. An update has been posted by TakaraTomy, and Cogman is back on the schedule. If you were counting on the Japanese release to bring you one of the best toys the Transformers The Last Knight line has to offer, it looks like you're back in business! Click through for the updated release details!
While originally due as part of the October assortment of Transformers products released on Saturday, October 28th, you can now look for the TakaraTomy edition of Cogman to hit Japanese retail on Thursday, December 28th, alongside the other December Transformers merchandise such as Legends Series Slugslinger and Octane.
Cogman is not expected to be meaningfully different from the Hasbro version of the toy; you can have a good look at what you'll be getting in our Premier Edition Cogman gallery.

The Autobots Unite subline from The Last Knight sure turned out oddly. What was originally Walmart's exclusive contribution to the toyline largely never materialized through Walmart at all. Among them is a One Step Turbo Changer set of Bumblebee and Hot Rod, which we discovered this evening at a Ross location in middle Tennessee. This joins the Legion Class two packs in calling the closeout chain home after never finding space on Walmart's shelves. You can find a photo of the find below. The set was priced at $11.99.
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.
