First Look at Takara Packaging for their Release of Transformers Studio Series

We have known for a good while that Takara's release of the Transformers Studio Series would be near identical to Hasbro's release. But how identical exactly? Well, the boxes turn out to be a bit different, much more different than simply adding a sticker, which has been the case for previous movie toy lines. Most english writing has been turned to Japanese, especially in the back, and the Hasbro logo has been removed to only have the Takara logo.

Also, there is no presence of a window on the side, which so far shows a big autobot logo regardless if the toy is an Autobot or Decepticon. It makes sense that the boxes would be different, since Thundercraker is not on Takara's release schedule and the number he has from Hasbro is instead given to Takara's release of Jazz. The differences mentioned are only regarding the packaging, of course, since the figures have long been confirmed to be identical. Still for our Japanese fans and any fan who does not anticipate seeing the Hasbro versions in their area (and would thus consider ordering these), this is our first look at what the packaging will look like. The images below come from Hobby Search, Alfes on Twitter and Planet Iacon and we can even see a comparison between the Takara and Hasbro packaging.

As an update to the Takara Tomy Quad Barrelled Shotgun campaign story which we first covered here, we now have in hand images of the tiny tiny Optimus Prime colour-themed gun, as seen in the Transformers: The Last Knight scenes in which Optimus attacks Bumblebee - shown in the promotional images as being wielded by the Studio Series version of the figure, which is closer to Revenge of the Fallen.

The Shotgun is part of a promotional Takara Tomy campaign that sees a purchase of 4000 Yen in the specified period (from 21st April) granting you the accessory. The images come from Singapore based Facebook page Planet Iacon, and have been mirrored for your viewing convenience - check them out!

Last seen on display at STGCC in September last year, we have a listing for XM Studios' licensed Premium Collectibles Optimus Prime statue on their own website. This provides us with not only much higher-quality images of the product, but an extensive description of the item as well!

The 1:10-scale porcelain statue will feature a base, two different right arms, a replaceable energon axe for the left hand and an optional rocket-pack for display options, as well as an openable chest with (non-removable) light-up Matrix and light-up eyes. As an extra, it even comes with a smaller companion statue depicting Prime's classic cab mode!

The statue is priced at $2,199 SGD retail price, or $1,979 SGD "prestige price" (about $1700 and $1500 USD respectively) or an $800 SGD deposit can be made to secure one - which is important, since the run will be made-to-order. Shipping is unavailable to North America, Europe or the UK, but ranges between $300-620 SGD for South East Asia, East Asia and Australia.

Check below for a selection of images from the listing, and click here for even more pictures, the full description and to possibly order one if it catches your fancy! Share your thoughts in the Energon Pub Forums, and don't forget to stay tuned to Seibertron.com for more Transformers news!

XM Studios is excited to present our first Transformers Premium Collectibles series statue,Optimus Prime! The noble leader of the Autobots is immortalized in amazingly detailed 1:10 scale cold-cast porcelain. Each painstakingly handcrafted statue is individually hand-painted with the famous XM quality finish. Crafted from scratch, every nut, bolt and wire is lovingly designed and sculpted ground up by a team in mad love with the Transformers G1 era of cartoons. Inspired by one of our childhood favorite 80s cartoon, we took the G1's iconic form design and XMized them with modern details, to better fit in today's expectations of sophisticated robotry designs. We have spared no effort and designing these original pieces took our core team almost 2 years, resulting in an amazing balance of retro beauty with a sleek modern details. And of course, how can we leave out XM's love of switch out extras? This statue comes with Energon Axe, Leadership Matrix and intricately detailed Cybertron Base and we've even thrown in the Rocket Booster Backpack to give Optimus the added firepower against the Decepticons. This is not all - what's a transformer without it's alternate mode? Yes, this statue comes with a companion statue, the iconic Freightliner FL86 cab over semi truck so collectors can enjoy the beauty of both bot and alternate mode at the same time! Prime would be proud!

Thanks to a heads up from our fellow fans over at Cybertron.ca, we have news that MPM-5 Barricade has made it to Canadian retail!

The figure, spotted by Cybertron.ca member steamwhistle, was found at a Canadian Toys R' Us, and was sold for $119.99 plus, tax, which is around $95 US dollars. With this figure now showing up in Canada, it should not be too long before he starts showing up elsewhere, though with the American Toys R' Us closing down, where that could be is still to be determined.

Movie Masterpiece Barricade has been a figure many were eager to buy, as he is one of the most memorable Decepticons of the live action franchise, he is the first Decepticon movie masterpiece figure in the new line up started by MPM-3 Bumblebee, and he is the first all original Decepticon movie masterpiece, as Starscream was a repainted version of his leader retail toy.

So with the figure out in the wild, begin your hunt, and let us know if you find him, and what you think of him, in the comments section below!

Latest Updates on the Studio Series with Listing for Tattooed Starscream, KSI Bot and Movie 6 Label

The Studio Series is turning out to be the hottest Transformers toy line this year. As such there is a lot of interest and a lot of news, and not all of it gets properly explained or fully reported. So here are some bits of news that might have gone under the radar.

Many are wondering if the line will continue and we know for a fact that it will. Hasbro did confirm that later this year, this line will have toys representing elements from the 2018 Bumblebee movie. This line is very much like Star Wars Black Series in the way that while it will feature characters from across the movie franchise, it will be in this line that the more collector oriented toys for the 2018 movie will be released.

As a matter of fact, the Studio Series line itself, right now, is labeled as the Movie 6 toyline (as can be seen below). So it is meant to be on shelves the same year the movie comes out, though not necessarily having only characters from the film. This is all just to say that there will be more toys in this line past wave 2.

Transformers News: Latest Updates on the Studio Series with Listing for Tattooed Starscream, KSI Bot and Movie 6 Label

Now, about those toys, we know that an Ironhide is coming, along with a tattooed redeco of wave 1 Starscream (that hopefully comes with that saw weapon we keep seeing). We have a listing for this Starscream and a description which you can read below.

Starscream figure with Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen Cybertronian glyph tattoo deco
Premium figure and packaging inspired by the iconic Forest Fight scene
Figure scale reflects the character’s size in the world of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
Converts between robot and F-22 Raptor modes in 26 steps. Removable backdrop displays Starscream figure in Forest Fight scene.
Includes Transformers Studio Series 21 Voyager Class Movie 2 Starscream figure, detailed weapon accessory, removable backdrop, and instructions. Ages 8 and up.

Reach past the big screen and build the ultimate Transformers collection with Studio Series figures, inspired by iconic movie scenes and designed with specs and details to reflect the Transformers movie universe. In the Forest Fight from Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Starscream weaves through the trees in pursuit of Sam Witwicky and the Cybertronian secrets locked inside his mind. Racing toward his prey, he's pulled into a brutal battle against Optimus Prime. This Studio Series 21 Voyager Class Movie 2 Starscream figure converts from robot to F-22 Raptor mode in 26 steps and comes with a detailed weapon accessory. Remove backdrop to showcase Starscream in the Forest Fight scene. Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor, associated emblems and logos, and body designs of vehicles are either registered trademarks or trademarks of Lockheed Martin Corporation in the USA and/or other jurisdictions, used under license by DreamWorks, LLC. Transformers and all related characters are trademarks of Hasbro.


We also know of a different voyager Optimus Prime toy coming and a voyager Bonecrusher toy.

Lastly, while there are other placeholder listings with code names for other classes, the one that has our attention is a listing with the title of "Transformers Studio Series Deluxe Ksi Sentry". Unlike other code names (like Stryker for Bumblebee), KSI does reffer to bots from the live action films. It is all speculation at this point, but we wished to point it out.

The Good War
A Review of Transformers: Lost Light #17

Generally Spoiler-Free
Transformers News: Review of IDW Transformers: Lost Light #17
Hey, that's not the name of the series!

A week early, the second part of Lost Light's "The Everlasting Voices" trilogy of issues arrives, picking up directly from the end of issue 16 and its long awaited final page revelation. Rodimus and his crew have apparently reached some kind of afterlife or purgatory, but some of them aren't ready to accept this as their fate leading to the primary conflict of the story. This latest chapter sheds more light on whether or not that's even a worry for the team while simultaneously advancing characterizations, the overall IDW Transformers mythology, the series' main plot, and more "B" and "C" side-plots than you'll be able to believe in just 20 pages.

Everything is fine.

As the end of everything approaches, at least for this Transformers continuity, Lost Light now feels like it's in full stride with moving the series along into its last 160-ish pages of the quest. I mention this on the off chance you're reading this review and are curious if this is a good time to jump in and start reading these comics, now that the end is near. I'm happy to tell you that it is! Just don't start with this one. Go back to at least Lost Light #1 and this will be waiting for you at the end of one excellent binge.

Mortilus of House Bolton

It would be difficult to point out the sundry of ways, both small and large, that Lost Light #17 achieves precisely what a middle chapter ought to without burying the review in spoilers. A few key moments are worth a somewhat purposely vague mention here regardless, in particular the part-flashback, part-montage sequence expanding on a concept first discussed in significant detail all the way back in the 2012 More Than Meets The Eye Annual. It reminds me of Marvel UK's 150th issue where Simon Furman presents what could be taken as a long-winded exposition dump and crafts it in such a freaking cool way that you won't care even if you generally don't like those types of sequences.


Another smaller, yet still ultimately and pointedly significant element which strikes a similar chord involves Nautica and the consequences of more recent events in Lost Light issues #8 and #9 . Near the point where this latest installment draws to a close, and just when everything starts to make sense, it unwinds in an almost brutally unapologetic way. Immediately thereafter, yet another moment somehow, in some way, twists the landscape even further right before leaving you alone to think about what you witnessed for another month while you await issue 18 with yearning anticipation. If this anticipation doesn't hit you then, it's likely to be caused by at least one of several other moments in the issue that will set off a light bulb in your head right before smashing it to pieces - in a good way.

Transformers News: Review of IDW Transformers: Lost Light #17
Just in time to be wrong again, Rungspiracy returns

The events contained within Lost Light #17 require a deft hand to have the appropriate impact, and the lines of Jack Lawrence supplemented by the lighting and palette of Joana Lafuente deliver. On the line work, while I've said much about the emotive gestures and facial expressions Lawrence is capable of in the past, this issue also demonstrates a wisdom of knowing when to go the other direction and include an element of stoicism in the visual character work. Lafuente has a more subtle challenge with the setting varying from a darkened room to a darkened starscape over a dark metal planetary surface to dark-ish interior corridors, with only the slightest break in between. Characters are kept vivid while not looking like cut-outs despite the sometimes high contrast between their own colors and the background, adding to the surrealism of the scenario unfolding through the plot itself. Tom B. Long once again contributes in new, surprising ways, using varied fonts that add to both the visible storytelling and the perception of events from the reader's perspective.

The cover budgets look to have been scaled back, with two covers readily available and a third retailer incentive cover that is, as it was on issue 16, line art of the "A" cover for the issue. The colored version sold as the "A" cover, by Lawrence and Lafuente, is shown in this news story's thumbnail, and as always you can look up all the covers, credits, and potentially-spoiler-laden character appearances in our Vector Sigma Database entry for Lost Light #17.

Verdict
Transformers News: Review of IDW Transformers: Lost Light #17
Rodimus knows the importance of a good lawyer

This was an easy review to write. Quite a bit happens and it all either makes sense while providing answers or creates genuinely exciting new questions. Nothing is lingered on for too long but the important moments are still made to feel as such while leaving room for other developments to stoke the flame of desire for the arrival of the next chapter. I can't think of anything else to ask for out of a book published in a serial format. For those that have been following this series and predecessor More Than Meets The Eye, this is going to be a very good Wednesday.

Questions are possibly answered. Rodimus makes possibly bad, yet well intended decisions. The murky history of the Transformers' origin in IDW is possibly made clear. Relationships are possibly deepened for some, and for others, a desired sense of closure is possibly attained. Ratchet is possibly right about everything. In short, this 17th installment of Lost Light is possibly a quintessential example of what James Roberts and the plethora of creative talents associated with the series do best. You'll laugh, you'll think, and you might even cry. To borrow (and transform) a phrase from the late, great Jim Valvano, that's a full book.

A Prime is a Prime is a Prime
(Spoiler free-ish)



Synopsis
“The Falling,” Part 3: Onyx Prime sows the seeds of chaos and panic on Cybertron as he reveals dark secrets… but nothing will prepare Optimus Prime and his allies for Onyx’s darkest revelation!

“The Falling,” Interlude. All hope seems lost as Onyx Prime confronts Optimus—but why has Onyx returned? What’s his ultimate goal? Millions of years worth of mysteries are solved as the secret history of Onyx Prime is finally revealed!

Transformers News: Double Review of IDW Transformers Optimus Prime #17 & #18
and we're here to tell you


Story
If you read the synopsis section just above, you will notice that there are two of them rather than the single issue - that is because this week, and this review, has two issue of the Optimus Prime ongoing series being released by IDW Publishing. To avoid spoilers as much as possible, we decided to talk about both in the same text, and I am taking extra care to talk more about narrative and execution than plot specifically. Nothing different than usual, just a little more vagueness, if you'll bear with me.

Transformers News: Double Review of IDW Transformers Optimus Prime #17 & #18
yeah, pretty much


With that all said and out of the way, then: John Barber has decided to take a very different turn for The Falling. Weird, even. His writing hasn't shied away from time displacement and travel, black hole paradoxes, and the consequences of all of the above notions at play (just look at Syndromica and Dark Cybertron, or even Revolutionaries). But here, we reach a whole new level of temporal and narrative freedom - to varying degrees of success.

Transformers News: Double Review of IDW Transformers Optimus Prime #17 & #18
His words, not mine


In #17, the story continues, as the aftermath of Soundwave's actions in #16 is addressed and Onyx Primal gets more terrifying by the frame in his actions, words, and clear direction forward (which looks a lot like backwards). And it's a build-up that reverberates with a lot of the themes address in the series so far, with Aileron taking the narration spot and looking at the category of Primes and heroes from a vantage point, really.

Transformers News: Double Review of IDW Transformers Optimus Prime #17 & #18
which may or may not be sideways


Then we have a reveal. A big one. A narrative, time-shattering one, on the very last page. And issue #18 (aptly named Interlude) deals with this instead, charging the story being told in a way that is yes, entirely exposition, but exposition that is surprisingly well woven and doesn't feel like a pause too long or any kind of slog.

So where is the variation in the success I mention? General agreement on staff was that not everything landed immediately but, at the same time, risks were taken and the pay-off is yet fully to come with more of the arc to follow in the coming months. And the aspects played upon in these issues are not entirely out of nowhere, in Barber's repertoire and I'm very pleased with the editing assist of David Mariotte, keeping all things in check as Barber lets himself loose.

Art

In #17, Kei Zama and Josh Burcham are - I think - showing off their skills. We have a ridiculous range of emotive and dynamic in frame layouts, with interactions being silent as the overwhelming and overpowering presence of Onyx takes up most of the space. Things get out of hand, and space and colour are used to the best of their effects, with some truly incredible compositions and transformation sequences, too.

Transformers News: Double Review of IDW Transformers Optimus Prime #17 & #18
You Are (Not) Alone


In #18, Sara Pitre Durocher offers the general framework of the current events (opening and closing), along with colours by master of technicolour continuity Burcham - both of whom, together, maintain the stage in the same light and tone as the final act of the previous issue, and chillingly set up the Interlude story.

Livio Ramondelli has the main duties for the latter, and his style, once more, proves perfectly suited to the past, mythology infused Weird!Barber script. The Aligned continuity that once was part of another narrative universe definitely takes shape and form in his lines and colours, and the Primes of old can easily be identified in their rise and expansion - awingly so.

Transformers News: Double Review of IDW Transformers Optimus Prime #17 & #18
#Imperialism


There is little more that can be said about Tom B. Long's work on lettering for these books, but as Barber (and Mariotte) stick to their captioning and name tagging techniques, his fonts and placing don't skip a beat, and allow for the story - with a lot of exposition, as I said - to flow as organically as a twisted story as this one can.

The covers are multiple, and glorious, with the main ones taken care of by Zama and Burcham, including some clear lineart of Solus Prime from the former, and Casey Coller / Joana Lafuente for issue #17's B cover (in the style of its predecessors, as seen in our database, plus the #18 Megatronus variant from Livio Ramondelli (others also in database!). But the one featured in the thumbnail is Thomas Teyowisonte Deer's gorgeous take on the Autobot leader, the Arisen, and seemingly the pivot of the entire storyline.

Thoughts
Spoilerish ahead

As I said above, Barber has taken the weird, paradox route, and by doing so taking some really big risks that may not please a section of the readership (and unfortunately proving some clichés about comics narratives in general in the doing, too) - but, some of those risks are still not fully revealed, and where they may not work in these issues for now, two more chapters of The Falling are still due before the final arc. In the words of Onyx, this is indeed just the prelude to the finale, and we are bound to return to its topics and characters very very soon.

Transformers News: Double Review of IDW Transformers Optimus Prime #17 & #18
I still have doubts. On everything


The multiple art teams, with Burcham working as continuity lynchpin, do some wonders with what could've been an extremely, frustratingly confusing story, and the aftermath of Onyx's arrival is dealt with in perhaps the most personal and brutal way that this series has seen this far - also partly due to Aileron's perspective, and Soundwave's involvement. I do not believe we are seeing the entire truth, yet, but next month will confirm suspicions - and let me tell you, I am buzzing.
