T/L note: the word "Gachapon" comes from a pair of onomatopoeia describing the operation of a kids' toy vending machine: you turn the knob on the machine (gacha
) and out pops (pon
) a small capsule containing your prize.
Transformers: The Last Knight
(known in Japan as Transformers: Saigo no Kishi-Oh

) comes out in the US on June 23rd.
