Thanks to the Transformers Never Die Facebook Page we have some new images of the upcoming wave 1 figures from Takara's The Last Knight toyline. The 5 figures in wave 1 are Deluxe Bumblebee, Barricade, Berserker, and Slash, along with voyager Grimlock. The figures deco differs only slightly from their Hasbro counterparts, which have started to show up across the world. Check out the Takara packaging images, or their stickers, at least, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!

In Day 3 of Reveald Your Shield Week, Hasbro's promise of revealing a new Barricade figure is kept where they reveal Deluxe Barricade for the first time ever.
Yes, this is the very same figure already found in stores and that we have already seen for months now. But since this figure was absent from Toyfair with 0 stock images given by Hasbro proper to the media, this is their official reveal fo the figure (even if we saw him in yesterday's stop motion video).
Enjoy the video below of Isabella Moner showing us this "new" figure and remember to let Hasbro know who you allign with.
Fellow Seibertronian Maximal Rainmaker has sent us a sighting of the Dickie Toys licensed Transformers: Robots in Disguise set of figures, spotted at a Target in Canberra, Australia. They're two-packed, non-transforming, die-cast vehicles, three sets in total: Optimus Prime with Strongarm, Bumblebee with Steeljaw and Optimus Prime with Sideswipe. Check them out below!
“NEW CYBERTRON”—CONCLUSION! As the Junkions reveal their ultimate plan, Optimus Prime makes a decision that will define the relationship between Earth and Cybertron for all time... but will Arcee be able to live with the fallout?
Good memory, kids
The first arc of Optimus Prime, the big core book at the heart of the Hasbro Universe (take that, Crown Jewel), comes to a close in this sixth issue, and we get some closure indeed on the multiple threads dangling through the story - and some more are left to unravel for the future...
We know John Barber's propensity for the caption technique, to aid with the narration and provide some 'behind the scenes' commentary for what is actually happening in the gutters between panels - but this time, despite the very good writing, it's perhaps the very first time I've found it clash a little with the story itself. Having Optimus Prime narrate his own arc just felt ..off, at times.
The other stories, the other faces, the other characters around which the issue and the arc revolve, on the other hand, are still really quite pleasing. There is a lot happening all in one place (if you want a hand in catching up on the roles, our database entry might help!), both in the past and in the present, and it's all satisfyingly tantalising for more story threads from here.
token human panel
The way in which Optimus is perceived on the many sides of the issues, from the colonist recruits to Aileron and Pyra Magna, to Soundwave and Jetfire's past and present outlook and opinions, to how Earth sees him as coloniser and invader - the story is in no way at its end, if anything we have a new fraught beginning of a much bigger story to be told. And then there's that last page...
Kei Zama is still so much joy to follow through the pages, be it for organic, Cybertronian, Cybertrorganic, landscapes, battles, dialogue or face-offs - be they blasting or verbal, in the present or past - and I'm extremely pleased to see the variations across the Sharkticon ranks as well and variety in humans, who do not obviously have designs as distinctive as the robot protagonists.
The issue also relies a lot on heavy visual cues for resolutions - as well as the trademark time shifts and parallels - allowing for more of Josh Burcham's effective colouring to blend with Zama's linework. The lighter moments, not necessarily in tone, are impressive where the writing may not reach, and any lingering shadow is that much darker for it.
FLASH (aahhaaa saviouroftheuniverse)
As for the lettering, I am still in awe at how Tom B. Long manages to juggle so many things at once in pages that can be extremely busy, between visuals and text. Never mind some of the fight scenes, the ink work and dynamism - we still follow narration; top marks. And cover wise, while the veteran roster of Zama/Burcham (SkyLynx rider), Coller/Bove (face-off), Griffith/Perez (Sharkpile) is a wonder to behold, I'd like to congratulate Jin Kim on some really solid output with IDW covers this month - see thumbnail for proof.
Thoughts Spoilerish ahead
I was somehow expecting more from a conclusion, at this stage. Not that what we got wasn't a good one, mind you, but something felt a little underplayed - which might be beneficial for the wider game in the long run, and future stories, but leaves a little anticlimactic here. Soundwave's role, the explanation of his presence by Megatron's side, Jetfire's role in particular, feel well rounded enough to allow it, sure, but Optimus' actions are a bit.. whelming.
Things I am looking forwards to, nonetheless: Jazz and the exploration of his 'getting to know Earth' storyline, so very much. More Thundercracker in an active role. More challenges to Optimus, even - in spite of - apparent changes of heart/mind. Ramifications of his role in the eye of the new recruits. THAT ENDING PAGE.
From the Taiwan Hasbro Youtube channel, we have a new TV commercial for the Premier Edition TLK toys! The surprisingly somber advert features a very dramatic transformation of the Voyager Optimus Prime figure, as well as a showcase of the launch wave of the TLK toyline!
Check out the video embedded below, and share your thoughts in the Energon Pub!
It wasn't too clear what the recently revealed Optimus Prime Rubik's Cube entailed. Was it a Rubik's Cube inside Optimus' head, or was Optimus the Rubik's Cube itself? Well now we know. The new images on Hasbrotoyshop show that it is a 2X2 Rubik's cube that has the shape of Optimus' head and is removed from a display stand body. The MSRP is 12.99 and the product descrption is below.
Big head. Big Challenge. With the Rubik's Crew Puzzlehead, players can solve the puzzle that is shaped like one of their favorite Transformers characters. Twist the pieces and solve the Puzzlehead designed like the face of Optimus Prime. Once completed, place the collectible Puzzlehead on the included display stand body.

Fellow Seibertronian Leokearon bought a Transformers: The Last Knight Tiny Turbo Changer which turned out to be Blackout. These seem to be true blind bags so you can't really tell which character you are getting. he took images to show the scale with other small Transformers figures. Enjoy!
leokearon wrote:I bought one of the Tiny Turbo Chargers blind bags today and decided to take a couple of pics for everyone. I got Blackout, I was hoping for Hound but I didn't feel Blackouts Rotaors
Still he isn't a bad toy, he reminds me of the Bot Shots but with a bit more possibility (his arms are on ball joints and his hips have a single bar through them) and no Auto-transforming. The Rotors don't rotate though
We have some more news concerning Transformers: Robots in Disguise, thanks to Seibertronians MadProject and Sabrblade! After the French listings were found, a trailer for the apparently four-episode 'marathon' on French channel Gulli was uploaded to YouTube - which makes more sense of the description, especially when combined with the titles of the four episodes that follow King on the Hill, as found here:
'Defrosted' is probably the one featuring Prong, as reported earlier, and 'Blurred' probably (duh) introduces the blue speedster we're familiar with - bringing the total to four new episodes to be shown tonight in France. Check out the trailer, and see if that makes sense to you too!
Transformers fan JohnRedcorn has gotten a hold of Transformers The Last Knight Voyager Megatron and shared his thoughts on the figure, confirmed a few facts and took quite a few images, all shown below.
The main fact that he confirmed is that the voyager figure does not have a faceplate gimick. The face/head is static aside from standard head articulation at the neck.
Here are his thoughts followed by images.
Haven't seen the movie, I have to say the bot mode does evoke a close resemblance based on previews, but it might be a bit too dark. I do dislike the yellow "drool" and plan on coloring the chin and leave the yellow bits for the teeth. I'll admit it is a bit dark but then again the movie shots that I have seen seem to present a darkish metal tone (not a big deal).
The alt mode (I guess) is pretty accurate but we haven't seen the movie representation yet. Overall I am liking how the Voyager figures (Prime and Megatron) are nailing it with accuracy. The figure has some good playability/durability. It is pretty thick, akin to the Galvatron figure. I can imagine throwing it around in a bin and it won't break. The transformation is very intuitive without being “dumbed down” by cheating.
But yeah, this figure was very impressive and it definitely will be THE Megatron for my movieverse collection. Don't get me wrong, I like the new ROTF Megatron but I think the new one is definitely a couple of notches better.
