Oh, come on! Jazz looks exactly like his original release but with a new weapon! The Premium series did a better paintjob TEN YEARS AGO.

The weapon isn't new: it originally came with Final Battle Jazz, the one with the battle damage:

The MB one is the first to bundle both, so no need to double dip this time around... though the price may render that point moot.

Am I the only one who thinks it`s ironic that Takara is re-releasing new paint jobs while Hasbro has the (in my opinion) superior studio series coming out? Seems the tables have turned... maybe, maybe not, just my thoughts.

It isn't ironic, Takara Tomy is also releasing the Studio Series line and would have known about them before they announced the 2018 Movie the Best run.

So, getting a better look at Megatron it does seem he did retain the silver paint wash, it just doesn't show up well in pictures. I'm fine with this, what I'm not fine with is AmiAmi wanting $35 to ship it... Good thing I have some other stuff ready to ship so I'm just waiting for them to recalculate and hopefully I can offset the cost.

Be sure your stuff is scheduled to come out the same month or you are screwed. I learned my lesson with them and Hobby Search. Now I think I'm done with preorders for stores that don't have a "pile-of-loot" system.

No worries, it's stuff that's already out: Legends G2 Megatron and Windblade, and MP Targetmaster Hot Rod. I thought MtB Megatron would qualify for registered SAL, but the lowest was SAL parcel which was just a little less than EMS. I guess he's heavier than I thought. I'll have to keep that in mind next month when Nemesis Prime comes out.

And it worked out, I just got the new total and the EMS shipping only went up 1,500 JPY by adding the three items which was less than the their total for SAL. Hopefully I'll have all of these by next weekend.

Oh, I know, I meant it as in "new for that version of the mold", which is an even bigger complaint.
I wonder if the fact that weapon was gang molded with the damaged pieces somehow affected the paint budget, maybe they "waste" plastic on both th original gun and the damaged part and that's why they couldn't paint his damned feet.

In Hand Images for Takara Movie The Best Nemesis Prime, Hound, War Hammer Bumblebee and More!

Postby william-james88 » Fri Mar 23, 2018 9:36 pm

The final known figures part of Takara's Transformers Movie The Best line have been released and are shipping out to fans. This line comemorates the 10th year anniversary of the live action films and also includes the latest molds from Transformers The Last Knight. Many fans see these releases of these molds be the equivalent to the more premium "Takara version" one expects to get when comparing to a Hasbro release. For The Last Knight, almost all releases were identical to Hasbro's, so it is in this line that we get different paint applications. We can see several comparisons below.

The new toys released are MB-16 Jetfire, MB-17 Optimus Prime Revenge Version, MB-18 War Hammer Bumblebee, MB-19 Hound, and MB-20 Nemesis Prime. Some are very different, like Hound, while some look almost identical, like Bumblebee which still seems to have the panel misalignment problem.

We get a really good look at Hound's new accessory which also becomes a weapon storage case, with a detailed interior full of sculpted ammo. Also, look at how huge that Jetfire box is. It's pretty cool to see Takara still package their Transformers in alt mode even with this as a result.

Even though I hate the mold, that Nemesis Prime have some NICE paint.

That Hound is also a winner. That weapon storage box is pure genius. Allow me to be an ass and hope there's a cheap KO of that acessory that will pop out for all of us who have the regular TLK voyager Hound.

Bee looks rather disappointing. He is literally the Malibu Stacy with a new hat. But since I didn't get bamboozled by the first Malibu Stacy, I guess I can't complain much.

Wasn't planning on getting any of these but seeing that Hounds shield can store all of his guns, I might get him. Might also get Jetfire due to the fact that we may never get a better figure of him and his paint job looks good this time.

I never found it either, and I never saw it online for less than $30, so I figured I might as well spend the extra bit to get a hammer with him

Yeah, but with the original figure you couldn't bend the elbow when it was attached to his right arm (well, you could, but then his arm shield would be facing the wrong way). Like the studio series figure, they mirrored the cannon so that it can bend while attached to his right arm.
