Japan Toys R Us has listed some new images of upcoming Takara Transformers Dark Of The Moon Dual Model Kit Series for DMK01 Optimus Prime & DMK02 Bumblebee.

This version of figure requires the collectors to assemble various parts to form Optimus Prime or Bumblebee. Please be noted that these figures have no alternate mode, but the figures are highly posable.

Those look really nice. Wow. And completely articulated hands! I can't think of any other figure that does that. (With the possible exception of Unicron, I'm not sure about him.) Only problem I see with them is Bumblebee's battle mask-it looks a bit rough.

Did Bumblebee beef up? I knew they added the abs but I'm pretty sure his upper arms are much more massive than ROTF.

OMG, that Optimus Prime is terribly tempting.

This is DOTM Bumblebee not ROTF so he may have beefed up a little, we will know when the movie is released.

I think I may pick up Prime.

I've been on a Gunpla kick for the past few months. As long as this kit is about Master Grade quality I think I'll be pretty happy with it.

You know, these give us our first real look at the designs changes they did for DOTM. And Holy bloody Primus, I want them even more now.

Luckily HLJ has them for relatively cheap, compared to other places so getting them both is somewhat more realistic.

I think Transformers model kits are a cool concept, though I wish it were something besides movie Prime and Bumblebee.

:shock: That. Optimus. Is. INCREDIBLE!!! I love it! I would look great displayed near my Gundam. Pieces like this are superb. :)

These look really nice; I may get Prime if he's not too expensive and they make a Megatron to display with him.

Prime looks really cool, but, surprise surprise, Bumblebee has monkey arms.

I'm not going to buy a non transforming transformer either.

Superb! Now all I need is money, and a place to display them

Yeah I'm not really feeling it with BB but Op is just looking like a majestic bastard in all his glory. So I wonder if the frame comes pre-built or does everything need to be put together? Hopefully the latter cuz that just makes it more fun that way.

Yeah, we can finally see some of the numerous changes to the characters. Bumblebee does have more armor on his shoulder's upper arms (and his old shoulder armor looks slightly differently shaped, which is what I think makes it look beefed up to that other poster), the obvious chest mods, and his forewheels have moved from his rear-shoulders to his rear-waist. ( :( )

Prime's changes seem to be much more subtle (smaller pieces moving less noticeably), granted I am not as acquainted with his old designs as some other characters. Basically though Prime's silhouette will remain the same, which cannot be said for Bee.

I'm also rather surprised at how uni-thick each panel piece appears to be. They don't have the depth (especially the changes in depth) I appreciate greatly on movieformers alt-mode plates. It makes them look more fragile here.
And I agree Bee's mask is ugly...I don't expect them to be able to pull off each little feathery piece, but it IS rough, and they didn't even take off the armor on his head which is supposed to be said mask, lol, continuity. :lol:

However, overall I agree that these are amazing (sorry all you non-transforming transformers folks), and I would buy them in a heartbeat if I ever saw them on this side of the world. Alas, it's likely not to be unless someone has them at Botcon.

Also, I wouldn't be surprised if someone modded one of these to actually transform. Mmmm... :9

These are fantastic. Well, Bumblebee, a little less so.

This does tell me one thing... Bumblebee might be the most recognizable out of all of the movie characters, and the audience (especially kids) gravitate towards him, but Optimus clearly had much more work put into his design. Not just here in toy form, but in the CGI model itself.

This model kit shows off just how impressive he really is.

I kinda want the model simply because of that.

Daaang.

Can someone please explain to me why the Amazing Optimus happens to be Like twice the Price of Bumblebee? I can't seem to figure it out if they are the same size. And why does it seem that Has/Tak does not want to give Prime his guns..... It angers me.

They *are* different sizes as far as I know.

Hmm, I heard that they were either 1/35 scale, but then there was new information that said both were 9 1/2 inches tall. Do we have anything on size for them? Never mind, I researched the plans for them, and found the scale is 1/35, and that Prime and Bumblebee are two way different sizes. As seen here,

Last Question, Have we had any confirmation on whether these will come painted, molded requiring paint and/or decals, or unpainted?

Thanks, DM, and I foudn out another pic I have not seen before, right here, It shows that these come disassembled, but it appears that the decals and paint are applied, so you simply have to cut it all off the sprue and assemble them. Interesting, and that is a hell of a lot of parts.

well, that means Prime is fairly close to both ROTF Leader size, and standard scale model kits size... you could have "perfect" versions of bot & alt, and one that transforms inbetween!

Nope. It was a small insert in the New Dengeki Hobby Magazine, Which Was just reported on here. You can also with the new scans see the layout from Bumblebee.

These might not transform, but wow. Optimus just looks amazing. Bee looks good as well, but I HAVE TO GET OPTIMUS. Just spectacular.

Prime does look cool...but not anywhere near $100+ cool.

I'll be getting these, just did the math and realised that these will cost me about as much as a Hasbro deluxe and a Leader Class figure would from the shelves, the only difference being that these are totally badass. I hope Tak makes at least a Megatron and a Starscream to go with these.
Re: New Toy Images of Transformers DOTM Dual Model Kit Optimus Prime & Bumblebee (1213247)

Well, I did some more research, and This is what I got

Optimus Prime-240mm, 9.5 Inches, scales to 27.5 feet, and ccording to the free trading cards from the Boston Globe, Optimus is 28 feet tall.

Bumblebee-140mm, 5.5 inches, scales to 16 feet, which according to the official guide, is correct.

So those are the heights, and for the scale freaks out there, they are in scale with one another. Can we get the whole cast now?
