Tag Hobby has some new images of the recently unveiled movie figures. They have a new image of the Age of Extinction Leader Prime redeco in his windowed box but more importantly, they have many promotional images of the new Movie Masterpiece MPM 3 Bumblebee. These pictures look more along the lines of what we would get from Takara and the source being Japanese site tag Hobby, along with them keeping the Japanese line's numbering hints that this Masterpeice Bumblebee could simply be a Takara product distributed by Hasbro Asia. Remember, Masterpiece Dirge was also shown first at a Hong Kong show by Hasbro. This could be the same thing.
A few more points regarding Bumblebee. He has some die cast parts and several features, which can be seen in the images, like a battlemask and a transforming hand. He is roughly the size of a Human Alliance figure and MP carbot like Sidesqipe and Wheeljack.
Let us know what you think. And enjoy the new awesome images!
Fellow Seibertronian Cyberpath has a splendid pictorial review for us of the recently released Takara Transformers Legends LG39 Brainstorm. He compares it to the previous Takara Brainstorm release and we see here how giving the old one's guns to new Brainstorm works out. Enjoy!
LG39 Brainstorm -- Takara's final Autobot Headmaster of the original group. Shipped one month after the last batch and arrived almost at the same time.
Brainstorm looks fantastic! The proportion of the body; the contrast of the colours--!
I've already had a Brainstorm that I liked (LG09) but ordered this one too just because of scale & compatibility; I wasn't enthusiastic about it but it turned out great!
The face sculpt is really well done -- detailed and crisp. But he doesn't look like the Brainstorm that I know as he's got a mouth. There's space between his jaw and "helmet" so I might try to somehow fashion a faceplate for him that would tab there.
Hey this kind of works, no?
Yet another Autobot Headmaster that's supposed to have twin-guns but doesn't. Instead he was packed with the generic gun that Chromedome came with. He can however wield LG09's guns! The colour is not exactly the same, but it works.
I was glad to find out that you can transform him without removing the nosecone, but you can remove it if you want a less prominent back.
The articulation is very good, he's even got waist rotation that's not related to transformation; so far only the Decepticons have had it.
He's got the exact same thighs as Chromedome and the shin-transformation is similar.
The transformation is cool and impressive, love the fin storage, the way the back-rest changes into his abs; the windshield, it's all pretty great for a deluxe.
And the jet mode is just as nice as the robot! Though I'm surprised there is no peg hole for a stand.
Brainstorm's drone buddy is a little more interesting than Chromedome's. And it's got this motorbike type mode.
Didn't think I'd have a Headmaster, much less all of them (and two Brainstorms!) but here we are..

In celebration of the 5th anniversary of MTMTE's first issue, writer James Roberts has taken to Twitter and given us a few screenshots of his original script for it, showing the many differences it had before a few more drafts and the finished product. Highlights include Whirl having a proper right hand and not fighting Cyclonus, Skids joining the crew from Cybertron, Cyclonus defining himself as a NAIL and Rewind's alt-mode being called a 'Document scanner'. Take a look at the pictures below and feel free to comment in the forums!
We now have access to the third TV trailer for the upcoming Transformers: The Last Knight movie! The new trailer continues the trend of the previous 2, using footage from the original trailer with a different order. The trailer is titled 'Stand and Fight' after Isabela Moner's line "I want to stay and I want to fight." You can check out the trailer below, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!
The official Takara Tomy Twitter account for Transformers has just shared a new image from their Legends line, featuring a new triple-changing Headmaster: LG-40 Astrotrain! Check out the robot mode, packaging, and tweaked deco (now with purplier purple) in the image below.
Thanks to Seibertronian gamer CtrlFrequency we have our first look at the upcoming Decepticon character Dragstrip! Dragstrip reuses the Mirage body with a new Combiner Wars styled head, painted in his classic yellow and weird maroon/purple color. Dragstrip is a gunner much like Brawl and Swindle, and he comes with a cool new ability. His ability is to transform into car mode and launch 5 holomatter racecars at enemies, dealing heavy damage to most structures and double damage to storage units. His ability also has pretty good range. Check out the video below, and let us know what you think of this new character in the comments section!
*Update: Seibertronian Kurthy has let us know that the other new character to join Earth Wars: Autobot Hound has had his video released! Hound is a recolor of Swindle with a new head and a new ability. He is a gunner just like Swindle, and has the same 5 holomatter carsjeeps that attack targets like Dragstrip. Check them out below!
Big Bang Comics, considered to be the best comic book store in Ireland, has given IDW Transformers and Nick Roche a special honor: they have named IDW's Sins of the Wreckers as a member of their top 50 bestsellers of the year! Coming in tied at #49 on the list alongside Star Wars: Volume 2, Sins of the Wreckers was the only IDW entry to make the list, making this a truly special honor for both Roche, IDW, and Transformers in general.
Roche appears well liked in the area as well, as IDW's Lost Light #1 was completely sold out thanks, reportedly, to the special Nick Roche cover that flew off their shelves. And, currently happening are the Irish Comic News awards 2016, and IDW and Transformers are once again represented by Roche and Sins, as Roche is in the running for both Best Irish Writer Published Outside Ireland and Best Irish Artist Published Outside Ireland, and Sins is in the running for Best Irish Creator Comic Published Outside Ireland. You can vote for Roche and Sins by following the above link.
Congratulations to Roche and the IDW team for this achievement, despite all the hardships and challenges that had to be overcome to finish the story.
Hasbro just sent us a message confirming what we saw this morning and giving us more detail. As it turns out, that is indeed a new Movie Masterpiece Bumblebee, numbered at MPM-3. It is done to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the first film. More linked to the new film, The Last Knight, is the Leader Optimus Redeco with new weapons. Both seem to be Asian editions so it is currently unkown if they will be sold in the west at big box retail. Below is all the info we have from Hasbro, including the prices and official stock images.
Transformers: The Last Knight Premier Edition Leader Shadow Spark Optimus Prime
(Ages 8 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $69.99/Available: April 2017)
The explosive Transformers saga continues with Transformers: The Last Knight, and this Asia-Edition Premier Edition Leader Class Shadow Spark Optimus Prime figure allows fans to bring the action home with them. The large-scale figure features incredibly intricate space deco and purple eyes inspired by the movie and converts between robot and truck mode in 20 steps. This 9-inch Optimus Prime figure also comes equipped with two space weapons.
Masterpiece Movie Series Bumblebee MPM-3 Figure
(Ages 8 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $79.99/Available: July 2017)
This premium movie Bumblebee MPM-3 figure from the Transformers Masterpiece series brings the 10th anniversary of the 1st Transformers movie to life with this film-version of the iconic Autobot scout. This figure includes stunning intricate detailing and 33 steps of articulation, as well as a flip-down battle mask and Chevrolet Camaro design. Whether he’s cruising the highway as a slick Chevrolet Camaro or facing Decepticons in battle, Bumblebee is one of the bravest bots in the universe.
Via the Facebook group HK-TF, and its user Victor Wong (plus a clip from Toys Daily) we have a look at a redeco of Age of Extinction Leader Optimus Prime which will come out in the upcoming Transformers: The Last Knight toyline. It is part of the Premiere Edition subline with a rusty paintjob, according to the packaging (which also shows red Drift). There is also a Bumblebee figure present and it is unsire if it is simply the Revenge of the Fallen Batle Ops Bee on display or if there are some new parts to him. There is the original MPM-2 box from 2010 present, confusing the matter. What do you fans make of this? Do you see something new to that Bumlebee? You can check out the pictures below and speculate away in the Energon Pub.
