I would've had more interest if they weren't simply transparent plastics. If they were actually painted I might've gotten them.

Their faces seem to be painted. :)

Sling is the only one whose name isn't from one of the Rocky movie codenames, so he's extra special. ;)

...because he's not based on any of the AoE Dinbots at all (unless one can see a dragon in the movie). :lol: I'll hazard a guess as say they choose the name "Sling" because it starts with "S", is one syllable, and it's been used before for a "Dino" (actually a Dimetrodon) in Beast Wars Neo. The other candidate would be "Saberback" from the same line, were it not for its 3 syllables.

And how do I get a set if these in America? I hope this is available through online purchases also.

I'm sure places like TFSource and BBTS will try to get a hold of some of these to sell themselves.

Has the AD08 Battle Blade Bumblebee been released yet?

I would really be interested in getting this.

I can see it is sold out wherever I look but not sure if this is pre-order items.

All items up to AD17 Darkside Soundwave have been released, with AD08 Bumblebee having been released in May.

Thunderlips? Seriously? Wow. That's right up there with Drill Nuts..

I still say there was a better option than the dragon. After all, there's a wolf mini-con and there's wolves in AOE, so why not fill out the set that way instead?

so the advanced line is just the name for the takara line of age of extinction figures?

Yep. "Movie Advanced Series" = Takara's release of the Age of Extinction Generations figures.

And "Lost Age Series" = Takara's release of the Age of Extinction simplified toys.

How funny. I'm guessing he's named Thunderlips since he's good at kissing. :lol:

Courtesy of Seibertron.com user and YouTube reviewer chuckdawg1999, we get a look at another figure from the Takara Tomy Lost Age Movie Advanced line - and it's one of the cheating ones, brought back from the Movie Line that wasn't: Darkside Soundwave, already a Soudblaster-esque repaint of DotM Soundwave! Check out the embedded clip below.

No weapon? Is that because he got it this way, or is it the official release?

Either way, it suck big time. I'll keep my money.

The figure didn't come with a weapon which is a shame since it was one of the best Mech Tech weapons. I've heard the Advanced Wheeljack will be the same, none of Que's weapons included.

Now, that's just bullshit.
I bet they want us to pay an extra 20$ for one of those "special edition" Mechtech weapons. :BANG_HEAD:

I mean, not even a random gun or something? The figures just come naked? Is it just me or Takara are starting to get cheap?

I think it has more to do with the MechTech gimmick of the DOTM line no longer being a thing. And many people did hate them, in general.

Overquoting to say that fine, no Mechtech, but at least some gun, any gun to go with them. For the price you pay, no gun at all, gimmick or not, is really "scroogy".
