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
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!
Dengeki hobby announces transformers quad barrel shotgun gift campaign starting April 21 at participating retailers you can receive one with any purchase of Takara tomy transformers products of 4000 yen or more. It is a limited quantity item. It is the gun that Optimus prime used in the last knight in the fight scene against bumblebee when prime was brainwashed.
Artist Emiliano Santalucia has posted another piece of his Hasbro concept art to Facebook! Today, we get a look at Transformers: The Last Knight Allspark Tech Optimus Prime, and this one is kind of a tragedy. The original design work for the toy shows off a neat-looking, dynamic design for the figure that is far removed from the final version. Ah, budgetary restraints.
