So hip hip hurray then! Takara did give us an extra incentive to get these beauties! :x

They gave us nothing new. This feature is already available in the APS-01U release, which came out last year, as Jelze just stated. You can see those same hands in the pic below showing that release (of last year):

So Tformers is incorrect, I dont know why they made a big deal out of this.

The only thing Takara did with this, is release that same toy (with the faceplate versin of the ROTF headsculpt) at a lower price point due to not giving as many accessories.

So now we can own the best version of OP for 70-100$ instead of over 200$. That's awesome of takara even though there is are no new features in this release.

So we get a cheaper face-plated version, no accessories hence cheaper version. As for the ethics of correcting another site's reports..........I'm staying away from that with a 10 foot pole.

10th Anniversary Optimus Prime comes with:

- Ion Blaster from the Buster Optimus Prime version.
- Battle Blades from the Striker Optimus release.
- Battle Hooks from the Ultimate Edition.
- Knuckle from the Ultimate Edition.

Really, the only things removed are the Jetwing backpack and guns, and Striker's Stealth Force Mode attachments.

Takara Transformers 10th Anniversary Movie Line Name Revealed

Postby william-james88 » Wed Jan 04, 2017 8:27 pm

It has been a few months that we are aware of Takara's plans for the 10th anniversary of the first live action Transformers film. What we didn't know was what the MB stood for in the item numbering, like MB-11 (which is a rerelease of Leader Prime). People thought it was short for Michael Bay. But no, it was revealed today that the line is called Movie the Best, meaning that this is Takara's choice for the best molds to represent the toys in a certain scale. Leader Optimus is an outlier (being number 11) since he is simply a chance to release the recent APS-01U Optimus Prime toy in Japan.

We mirrored the images below so that you can get a reminder of what they look like. These are coming out within two months, will you be getting any?

Even in the videogame industry, games that are best sellers get the same "the best" labels. "Playstation the Best. Or like a Yoda speak, technically the best Playstation omitting "games"

Bad jokes aside, I'm pretty excited about getting Leader Prime again, and with it being a reissue of the second Asia Premium Series Prime (without the Jetwing accessories) makes him a little more accessible for my budget.

Is a fine selection of figures despite some obvious scale issues with each other. Still happy with my modified voyager Grimlock, Deluxe Bee and Eva Prime so I don't need those. I do miss my old Buster Prime though so that new version would be nice.

I've got both Primes and Shockwave on order, they're the only ones I'm really interested in. It would be one thing if these were being spread out better, but all of these in two months alongside other releases is far too much.

And yeah, Playstation the Best was the first thing I thought of when seeing this title. Engrish, gotta love it.

Takara 10th Anniversary 'Movie The Best' Shockwave Packaging Revealed

Postby D-Maximus_Prime » Fri Jan 20, 2017 12:19 am

Motto: "There are no impossibilities in the multiverse, just small minds unable to comprehend the possibilities"
Weapon: Star Saber Sword
Thanks to zairj2010 on Taobao, we have a pair of new images for the upcoming Takara 'Movie the Best' Shockwave, the redeco of Shockwave from Dark of the Moon that is celebrating some of the best figures made during the 10 years of the live-action film franchise! Shockwave's packaging draws inspiration from the 3rd film, as the packaging features Sentinel Prime and the Driller, as well as a Revenge of the Fallen and Age of Extinction era Bumblebee alongside his own close-up on the front. Shockwave is labelled as MB-04. Check out the packaging below, and let us know what you think in the comments section!

Heck, there was the Ark playset from the same movie. I don't get why they didn't make a Driller for Legends Shockwave to ride around in.

Yeah but it is a giant worm and I don't think it would have appealed at all especially since those play sets did not sell at all. It was at the time when we got the Ark and Prime did the energon drill and Wheeljacks ship and all of those things ended up on clearance racks.

If we had gotten a driller it Would have probably been an early concept of the thing when it looked like Shockwave was using a chariot and it probably would have ended up looking like a slug that also shelfwarmed until it went on clearance.

I have speculated before the best way to do the Driller as a toy is as a Hybrid toy - part action figure accessory and part Role play Gun (not unlike the 2016 Rescuebots toys with trailers).

You'd have a large nerf rifle like toy with a geared spinning mechanism with spinning rubberised tentacles on it and perhaps some Nerf projectiles - it would have a handle to hold for kids to use.

It would also fold the handle up and sit on the ground and when pushed along the tentacles would undulate and spin.

On the back it would open and have a spot to slot Voyager Shockwave onto it so he's basically pulling a huge trailer with a spray of tentacles on the back.

Also on the top it would have an opening hatch that Legion Shockwave could sit in.

That is how i'd do it - if you look the driller designs up (the whole thing) you can see what I mean.

Also possibly it could be posed in a eating a building pose up chair legs and such.
