The Takara-Tomy update train keeps chugging along! Takara Tomy has updated their website with information about the Toys R Us Japan exclusive Movie Advanced EX Optimus Prime "Rusty" Version. This figure is the Evasion Mode Optimus Prime Voyager Class mold in film accurate deco, unlike the G1 theme the current Hasbro figure is sporting. It also features a remolded head with the faceplate intact instead of the full faced version we have now.

Included are comparison photos of the original Evasion Mode and the upcoming Rusty version.

Another Takara Tomy update? You bet! They've updated their Transformers website with a listing for Movie Advanced EX Rollbar. Rollbar is a redeco of Generations Skids, made to look like Shane's rally car from Age Of Extinction. The Chevy that Shane drove turned out to be a plain old car and not a Transformer in the film, but thanks to Hasbro and Takara, we're still getting a toy out of it anyway!

Rollbar will be available for purchase in Japan in November of this year, exclusive to Toys "R" Us. Here in the states, we'll receive Rollbar as part of a figure multipack based off of the Cemetary Wind farm attack sequence in Age Of Extinction. That set will feature "Rusty" Optimus as well. (You can read up on the Rusty Optimus here)

Wait, shouldn't all this Takara toy news be going into the Movie Advanced Series thread instead of this Hasbro AOE toy thread?

Thats an awesome idea. Where would we post it to ensure people see it ?

We're open to ideas, just try to be civil about it.

Yes, please. Also, it's a matter of cleanliness. Do you have any idea how many duplicate threads and posts we have to deal with? How much space/data they eat up on the server? It's not the worst thing ever, of course, but it's certainly not efficient and makes it harder on the staff.

We merge threads so everything is as tidy as possible. It's not to make things harder for the users, quite the opposite, in fact. We are always open to suggestions, so please post them and we'll do our best to figure out a system that works for everyone.

I understand that bbts needs to make theyre money because they are going to get stuck with alot of grimlocks and primes when that wave comes out. But thats not my problem. Im confident ill find slog in Walmart by the end of August.

On a separate note, I would love to see "thread merging" abolished. Its so freaking annoying to see conversations about 10 different topics mixed together just because they are loosly related to Michael Bay.


Been saying that for the past several years. I can understand it for conventiony things, where there's a lot of news coming out of one thing, (and even then, it's extremely annoying) but when it's news topics days and weeks apart, no.

The thing that kills it for me isn't the forums neccesarily, it's the way the news page processes. 9 times out of 10, I'm commenting on a news article with the "click here to join the discussion", I'm not already in the forums themselves. So when the news article itself has three seperate news posts for other things, such as AOE FE Knight Prime's post in the article for Sludge, it's more than a little jarring...

I wish there was a happy medium but there isnt. I was reading the "rollbar" article and most of the comments are about thread merging, not rollbar. I dont know anything about servers, all I know is its annoying and discourages me from posting on front paged news articles. I like to follow up on my comments and cant do so when theres 3 pages of comments every few hours that dont pertain to the topic I posted on.

For those of you having an issue with the merged topics, I posted my reply in the appropriate topic at seibertron-com-problem-reporting-thread-p1591794.php#p1591794

If you have issues with the topic merging, please keep your posts there. Thanks.

If I didn't already have the original Skids version, I would probably be into this. I dig the alt-mode's paint job.

Regarding Rusty Prime and Rollbar, I wonder which idea came first: Hasbro's Breakout Battle set which includes an extra Crankcase, or TakaraTomy's single release. :-?

I'm also pondering repurposing possibilities for Rollbar, being a Generations mold and all.

Hey guys. I hear that there is a Transformers: Age Of Extinction dinobot 5-pack coming. I saw the word limited in one of the posts. Does this mean that Hasbro is going to be making a limited number of sets and they will be hard to find?

Something like that is in the plans, yes, but further details like deco and availability are still pending.

Anyone know what the 5-pack platinum dinobots look like yet? I already got 3 out of the 6 but I'm willing to buy the molds again if the paint apps are good enough. :???:

The Dinobot 5 pack is really odd to me. I was guessing it be similar to the one at SDCC but this pack is missing Snarl for some reason. If it was the G1 colours or a simple reissue of the SDCC pack, then why would it not contain Snarl? Also, though none of us may care for it, this means there is no chance Slash will have a redeco.

You are right about Slash. Besides the toy, he has no comic/cartoon/movie char anywhere. Just who is this crappy huge velociraptor mold? :HEADHURTS:

According to the silhouette, it will have Grimlock, Slug, Scorn, [strike]Swoop[/strike]Strafe and Slog, all the Dinos that appeared in the movie plus Slog. I don't think it will be G1-themed set.

So then this would be an independent set from what was hinted at from Hasbro:

[quote]G1 Dinobots set with Strafe, Grimlock, Slug, and Snarl (where's Sludge/Slog? Hasbro said they are working on it for a separate release) [/quote]

Is there a problem with snarl redeco? why is it hard for him to be included in either sets?

That latter set would be the SDCC one.
