Again from Toys 'R' Us Japan, from the Takara Movie Advanced line we get high resolution images of AD27 Bumblebee and AD28 Snarl. Neither one strays too far from their Hasbro counterparts. As an added bonus we get a look a LA12 Stinger which is the Takara version of the Hasbro one-step Stinger figure.

Agreed. That bot mode looks badass. I particularly like the torso's shape and techie details. Very cool.

Love the details and how Stinger look in general. Unfortunately, he's just a one-step-changer. :/

Bumblebee car mode is ugly to me... :-(

But Snarl looking great!

Stinger deserve a bigger figure.

Well, what Cons are there for them to make toys of? We've already seen the full product lineup for AOE till the end of the year at BotCon, unless Hasbro pulls out some surprises at SDCC.

It's worth noting that AD27 is actually called New Bumblebee, to differentiate it from AD04 Classic Bumblebee aka High Octane Bumblebee. ;)

The only thing I'd like to is this: are we getting a Deluxe Class Stinger, redeco or not? If not, I'd suggest looking at TFWiki. :-?

BB looks great, way better than what were getting here paint wise. Snarl had glorious wrist swivels! Also, they posed him holding his axe right. Stinger is colored correctly, unlike Hasbros bright red stinger.

Seibertron sponsor TFSource dropped us a line about a new figure in the Takara Tomy Lost Age Movie Advanced line. AD31 is Ultimate Power Mode Optimus Prime which looks to be a retooled version of Age of Extinction Leader Class Optimus Prime. The images are placeholders only.

TFSource wrote:Note: Color is not black as shown which is misleading, but it is the image Takara provided, instead this piece features additional metallic paint apps and/or chromed parts and details, unique to this piece. Takara is just using this image as a placeholder before they reveal the final pictures!

This Japan version of Optimus Prime features an updated head sculpt, and remolded body parts, as well as the face mask can be removed easily. There are bonus weapons, and the color is not black as shown but features metallic paint apps and/or chromed parts and attention to detail. It is assumed to be the regular Optimus Color scheme. Note: Details are subject to change, updated images to come.

Set for a November release date, preorders up for $79.95 at TFSource here:

Transformers 4 - Lost Age - AD31 - Ultimate Power Mode Optimus Prime

Huh, most curious. Wonder what this could be. :-?

Maybe the Toy wizards at Takara found a way to reduce his backpack. If so, Im hoping that he has a more solid truck bed. Hes probably going to be painstakingly recolored for movie accuracy. For the weapon, I assume its going to be the rifle he used until he found his sword and shield.

Work your magic Takara, make this undesirable mold appealing enough for me to buy it!

Having seen Vangelus's review I'm actually quite taken with this mold. Seeing Takara work their engineering genius on it could prompt me to buy it.

There are only three significant i.e. named villainous Transformers in Age of Extinction, the least they could do is give them all a proper action figure. I hope Stinger gets a Deluxe release.

Would it have killed them to make Galvatron Leader Class?

Snarl looks great, but I don't really recall seeing him in the film, whereas Stinger featured heavily.

Galvatron wouldn't really have been workable as a Leader Class. People don't like backpacks. I've heard rumors floating around that Stinger is going to be a re-shell of 2014 Concept Bumblebee with a new head, and that more will be shown at comic con.
