A major part of Walmart's exclusive Autobots Unite subline during the run of The Last Knight Premier Edition, Deluxe Hot Rod never really turned up in any stores - nor did the majority of the rest of that sub-branding, which found its way to discount retailers a few months back. Premier Edition Hot Rod is now following suit, with a reported find at Ross in the Los Angeles area priced at $8.99, according to Gepard
. Hot Rod was available via Walmart's website, starting at $20 and gradually rising in price as time went on. Ross distribution can be hit and miss, but at this price it may be worth keeping an eye out!
Thanks to Alfes2010 on Twitter, we have some (literally) in-hand photos of the quad barrel shotgun accessory that was the subject of the latest TakaraTomy marketing campaign in Japan. Customers buying 4000 yen worth of qualifying Transformers merchandise at participating retailers would receive the quad barrel shotgun, itself a reuse of one of Hound's many weapons originally from the Age of Extinction toy, painted in Optimus Prime inspired deco. You can click through to see Alfes2010's photos showing a few different figures using the special weapon.
Planet Iacon has shared some in-hand images of the TakaraTomy Quad-Barrel Shotgun Japanese campaign exclusive. The "Quad-Barrel Shotgun" is a movie replica from "Transformer The Last Knight", a gun that Optimus Prime used while brainwashed in the violent fight scene against Bumblebee. Check out the exclusive weapon along with the poster and accompanying literature below.
So it's generally accepted that Transformers: The Last Knight
One-step Changers (known as Speed Change Transformers
in Japan) aren't the most impressive of figures. But, what about one that is made from the ground up by one person, entirely out of cardboard?
Thanks to DIY Japan
on YouTube, we can now answer this question: it is much, much cooler. Click through to see the video!
