Seriously, I gotta stop calling stuff... Yes, I expected the Movie Trilogy Wheeljack mold being used, just never expected it to be an exclusive.

And to think the US had a chance of getting him. That Wheeljack was part of the canceled Movie Trilogy series like Ratchet and Darkside Soundwave:

A minor deco change but the principle's the same.

Wow... A proper Movie Wheeljack with a head to mach! Do I want to spend over 50$ for this? This thing is tempting.

I'm interested to see what they do with Wheeljack's bio. Do you think Takara will try to establish him as a different character from "Que" in Dark of the Moon?

Well, Soundwave and Ratchet came despite MP Soundwave having come out way a way's back and there's no MP Ratchet yet. Seems more like they're just releasing versions of these toys that were meant to come out but canceled before they could.

What we two are referring is the Movie Trilogy series, meant to be released after Dark of the Moon. Of the total line-up, only the Deluxe Prime with Trailer and Evac got released, the rest got canned. Here are images of the toys in question:

Compared with Movie Advanced series, Ratchet and Soundwave were barely altered, while Wheeljack will get the G1-accurate striping.

Soundwave's head was already stylized from G1, besides Wheeljack's new head is the alternate head for the mold shown in Autobot Que's instructions. Look up "pretools" (pre-planned retools).

I know Wheeljack already had that head shown but I read that the Soundblaster repaint was going to get a head that was much closer to G1. Doesn't matter really as I'll be getting Soundblaster and Dino today.

Remember the TakaraTomy store exclusive Dinobot Microns? Well, there's been an update on them with their robot modes and final names - http://tf.takaratomy.co.jp/toy/event/2014/06/d-micron.html

Orange T-Rex - Ivan

Blue Pteranodon - Paulie

Purple/gray Triceratops - Thunderlips

Teal/yellow dragon - Sling


That is too awesome!

You may think it's awesome, but aside from Sling (both the Japanese name for G1 Slingshot, and the name of a Dimetrodon Destron) those names, at first sight, are silly. any idea where they got them, especially Thunderlips? Wait... don't tell me they were the preliminary names. #-o

At any rate, here are the venues and conditions:

Ivan: Toys 'R Us, 3,000 Yen purchase
Paulie: AEON, purchase of either AD01 Optimus Prime (Leader), LA01 Battle Command Optimus Prime, or AD20 Black Night Grimlock
Thunderlips: Joshin Kids' Land, Bic Camera, 3,000 Yen purchase
Sling: Ideon Group, Hakuhinkan Toy Park, Shirobotan Ishinomaki Store, Best Denki, Yamada Denki, Yodobashi Camera, 3,000 Yen purchase

The giant leaked list from Hasbro's customer service system. It had codenames for several AOE toy characters, all taken from the Rocky movies.

Thunderlips = Slug
Southpaw = Scorn
Ivan = Grimlock
Max = Lockdown
Bruce = Drift
Paulie = Strafe
Rocky = Slash
Duke = Hound
Adrian = Galvatron

The fact that three of these codename were made real is so insane and outrageous it's awesome. 8-} :KREMZEEK:

Hmmm...since Takara seems to be releasing a few canceled items from previous movie lines with the Movie Advanced branding, anyone think we might finally get ROTF voyager Megatron in proper gray/silver coloring? One was slated for release, at least in Japan, in a two-pack with a retooled HFTD voyager Optimus Prime with additional Jetfire parts for a flight pack, but the set was ultimately canceled.

Unlikely, at least in the main line. AD08 to AD19 is dedicated to the previous 3 movies, 4 figures each, and the first 2 already have their lineups filled. AD18 and AD19 will definitely be based on Dark on the Moon.

And you got the info slightly wrong there. The Megatron and Optimus Prime sets were meant as individual releases, and the Optimus Prime one uses the original Movie Voyager mold for the Jetfire parts.

Posted by Wolfman Jake on July 7th, 2014 @ 5:10pm CDT
My mistake. I always assumed it was a two-pack, probably because they were to be released at the same time, each with a movie-inspired comic book. Still, it would be nice to have these at some point, especially Megatron. That ROTF voyager tank version of him with proper coloring be much appreciated for my movie-verse display. :)

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.

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. :-?

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:

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.

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.

Fifo, Snarl was never in the movie. ;)

And my guess is they won't remold Stinger's head:

Their battlemasks/faces are the same.
