There has been very little push or information on the Armor Knight Turbo Changers from Transformers: The Last Knight, to the point that we only knew there was a Bumblebee coming out when it was seen in stores.

Fellow Seibertronian Chuckdawg has reviewed all three from the first wave: Grimlock, Bumblebee and Optimus Prime. So check out the review below if you are curious about these simpler toys and their mask/helmet gimmick.

chuckdawg1999 wrote:More figures released under the Turbo Changers header, the Knight Armor figures feature spring loaded helmets and very simple transformations. Grimlock is an ok figure with the most interesting helm, while Bumblebee suffers from weak knees. Optimus Prime is the best overall figure with an almost Samurai motif to his helmet.

Khaaaa-- rzaaaa!
(Spoiler free-ish)



Synopsis

As one universe dies, another is invaded! Microspace — the home of the Micronauts — is collapsing. But Baron Karza has discovered a new universe in which the people of Microspace would thrive, a universe in which he would rule! The first world to be conquered is Earth, and the first enemies to be targeted are the TRANSFORMERS, G.I. JOE, M.A.S.K., and ROM!

Story

So, Micronauts. You might be forgiven for not having followed any of their stories, and end up very confused in the climax (one of many) of Revolution, and consequently not really wanting to know what happened to the Micronauts' big bad in this new mini-series that is both a crossover and another version of Revolution done well. But, hear me out...

Transformers News: Review of IDW Micronauts: Wrath of Karza #1 (of 5)
Buts for everyone


Cullen Bunn and Jimmy Johnston, the former being the regular writer for Micronauts (which, out of all the Hasbro Universe titles at IDW, you really should give a try reading!), do justice not only to Baron Karza's motives in the overarching world of the Microverse and Revolution and this new storyline - essentially, we have a reason for him to exist. And it is very very well done.

Transformers News: Review of IDW Micronauts: Wrath of Karza #1 (of 5)
Need a reason?


The link with Transformers? Karza and the rest of the Microverse were originated by Micronus, one of the Thirteen Primes of Cybertronian lore. Add to that just enough from each of the franchises involved in the event, especially on Karza's role so far, and establishing his new powers in relation to what he can do with Earth - and its inhabitants.

Art

Transformers veteran artist Andrew Griffith is on art duties, and he brings the shine that he always had in the very best work - a load also shared with Ron Joseph, who takes on a smaller number of pages, and strangely enough fitting the same criticisms and the issues that I have yet to clear up with their take on some human faces, especially in smaller, seemingly more rushed panels.

Transformers News: Review of IDW Micronauts: Wrath of Karza #1 (of 5)
But you also get these beauties


David Garcia Cruz does a really good job in keeping to the colouring we find in the Micronauts series (where he is the regular colourist), while also playing around where they can with the panels and lighting. Microverse and Earth are very different palettes, in terms of scapes, and yet we get a nice balance of the two with some truly sparkling gems.

Transformers News: Review of IDW Micronauts: Wrath of Karza #1 (of 5)
shiiiiiny


Lettering, as could be guessed almost immediately, is by veteran Tom B. Long, and I no longer really have any reason to say more positive things about his work: just look at it, and bask. All the covers, and all the characters involved, in the issue can be found in the database entry for the book, right here; the one chosen for the thumbnail is Paul Pope and Lovern Kindzierski's take on the Baron.

Thoughts
Spoilerish ahead

Let's get this out of the way: it's another comics event and a crossover. It is. I get it, I get you, I don't like them either, especially not at this rate. But, that said, Revolution did so badly at working out how everything fit together, that it's good to see the writers and editorial (tip to David Hedgecock there) working to patch that up with Karza's character, even if they place it confusingly in timelines with MASK.

Transformers News: Review of IDW Micronauts: Wrath of Karza #1 (of 5)
..huh


We get more towards a bigger plot, that will properly, actively impact the Hasbro Universe (before the next universe shattering event), we have TF lore and nostalgia vibes combined, we have a Darth Vader-esque villain who can also be a centaur take centre stage, and we have a pool of books to dive into for the ride, and some nice art to look at - so far, this 'event' works.

Optimus ..Fine?
(Spoiler free-ish)



Synopsis
“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?

Transformers News: Review of IDW Optimus Prime #6
Good memory, kids


Story

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...

Transformers News: Review of IDW Optimus Prime #6
Oooh juicy


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.

Transformers News: Review of IDW Optimus Prime #6
shots fired


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.

Transformers News: Review of IDW Optimus Prime #6
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...

Art

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.

Transformers News: Review of IDW Optimus Prime #6
I MEAN


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.

Transformers News: Review of IDW Optimus Prime #6
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.

Transformers News: Review of IDW Optimus Prime #6
irony


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.

The Transformers: The Last Knight toyline is being released worldwide this week and if you are curious to know what is in store if you pick up one of the only two new deluxe molds, Berserker, then I wrote a review with pictures. He is not great, but definitely a step up from Barricade, who was just too small, simple and kibble heavy for my taste. You can read that review here.

Now onto Berserker!

As I said, a definite step up from Barricade in terms of several problems I had. Firstly, he is literally a step up by being a tad bit taller and more in line with what I expect from a deluxe.

Transformers News: Pictorial Review of Transformers: The Last Knight Deluxe Berserker

Transformers News: Pictorial Review of Transformers: The Last Knight Deluxe Berserker

Secondly, the deco and paint apps don't leave me wanting that much more. It's not like there are places which badly need paint and nothing seems cheap. I especially like the asymetrical "X" on his chest. It looks like war paint, lending to his more barbarian and predatory design. All his claws (feet and hands) are painted too to distinguish them from the rest of his hands and feet. The silver highlights on his face give him a nice premium feel as well.

Lastly, there is a major improvement over barricade (and other shellformers) in how well the shell folds away. This isn't anything close to the genius of Prime Vehicon, but it is better than TLK Barricade, the AOE Leader Optimus Primes and the movie Sideswipe toys we have gotten in the past. There is a lot of compressing and folding to have as little car parts showing as possible.

Personally though, while it's an improvement over other shellformers, it also becomes the figure's downfall. Since the ROTF line, Takara has improved on its engineering for robots which don't show much of their alt mode. Instead of creating a back pack, the found new techniques that involve either turning the figure inside out (AOE Voyager Hound and Optimus Prime) or fully compressing a backpack (Voyagers AOE Galvatron and TLK Optimus Prime) and minimizing alt mode kibble on the robot. However, here they went the old way which means you have all these overlapping panels all across his back (and protruding above his head) plus some really random looking car details along his arms, like movie Leader Ironhide. Also, the car panels that rest on the back of his legs dont fold flush, which is a bit of a bummer, since it brings further attention to kibble that shouldn't be there.

Transformers News: Pictorial Review of Transformers: The Last Knight Deluxe Berserker

Transformers News: Pictorial Review of Transformers: The Last Knight Deluxe Berserker

Oh, speaking of those arm car parts, here's a new complaint: glue is missing. They are "stuck" to the arms due to friction but can drop to the floor at any given instant and will be sure to come off during transformation. Then again, I did complain about them looking random in robot mode so them not being glued means you could remove them no problem for him to look more like the Dreadwind character model. But he probably isn't in the movie anyway (at least not looking like this) so what is the point either way? Moving on, these are not the only parts to come off, the head is really loose and will also come off easily.

Transformers News: Pictorial Review of Transformers: The Last Knight Deluxe Berserker

Aside from the car parts clashing with the rest of the figure, the robot mode isn't bad at all. Nice articulation and very expressive.

Transformers News: Pictorial Review of Transformers: The Last Knight Deluxe Berserker

The shellforming nature of the figure does come to bite it in the butt when you start transforming it. He is actually quite simple but because he has more seperate panels than need connecting than any transformer I can remember (even more than Leader Sentinel Prime), it becomes a very frustrating transformation. There is a lot of panel massaging and multiple panels clipping onto one another at once from different parts. So clipping another panel can undo the previous ones. One odd thing I noticed while transforming was that he has a hole under his crotch and it doesn't serve for anything (maybe a stand? but it looks too small). A little distracting.

Transformers News: Pictorial Review of Transformers: The Last Knight Deluxe Berserker

The shellforming nature means almost none of the robot is visible in car mode and they do succeed here (some robot parts show in the back). You have some panel lines but nothing egregious and if it is transformed correctly, it will all stay together tightly with no gaps. The vehicle appears to look puny at first but it is as long as any other deluxe vehicle. It just looks small because the type of car is usually bigger than a car for a deluxe Transformer. One really cool thing no one has mentioned is how this brings back the pins for the wheels rather than the pressure pegs. He rolls nicely.

In the end, if you were ok with shellformers from the ROTF era, this is pretty much the same thing with a more finicky transformation and parts that fall off. Still, you get a nice looking robot mode and vehicle mode that look nothing like eachother. I personally preffer it to his other new mold wavemate, Barricade, simply because they do a better job with the back pack, deco and don't overly simplify the transformation. However, I still remain unimpressed with this line so far due to its lack of anything new or smart in terms of engineering.

Barricade is a fun character to get again in a movie toyline since he is movie original and has had decent-very good toys ever since the first film. Below are my thoughts on the new figure in a pictorial review followed by fellow Seibertronian Chuckdawg's thoughts in a video review. Our opinions could not be more different.

I will start by being very blunt: I think this figure sucks. If this is the best this line has to offer with its deluxes, which is what I am hearing from other reviewers, then we are in for a rough ride. Simply said, he is a basic and lazy shell-former. The transformation is nothing new, it's very similar to deluxe Drift from Age of Extinction but without any ingenuity that figure had like the folding doors to reveal new robot detail.

Instead we just get a plain figure where kibble just hangs out. He is far from being as sleek as any character model has shown us and in fact looks nothing like his character model.

Transformers News: Pictorial and Video Review for Transformers: The Last Knight Deluxe Barricade

I was going to say maybe the head looks similar but they do something super odd where the head is made of two pieces and the piece in the back is a dull beige plastic. I have no clue why they couldn't use the same plastic colour as the front of the head. It looks odd and cheap.

Transformers News: Pictorial and Video Review for Transformers: The Last Knight Deluxe Barricade

A lot of the problems stem from the simplicity of the figure which results in a terrible looking back, which totally invades the front. There is almost no transformation or deco to the legs, which have the outline of the wheels showing in robot mode, making it look like he has super weird calves.

Transformers News: Pictorial and Video Review for Transformers: The Last Knight Deluxe Barricade

Transformers News: Pictorial and Video Review for Transformers: The Last Knight Deluxe Barricade

The backpack is as bad as it gets with shell-formers, taking up the height of the figure, basically, but what bothers me is that it doesn't peg into anything at the top.

Transformers News: Pictorial and Video Review for Transformers: The Last Knight Deluxe Barricade

Another thing, this figure is puny. Here he is next to Kup.

Transformers News: Pictorial and Video Review for Transformers: The Last Knight Deluxe Barricade

That Kup cost me $15 USD while Baricade cost me $22 USD (current MSRP for both lines in Canada). This figure just makes me appreciate my Kup even more now.

I do like his knuckles though.

Transformers News: Pictorial and Video Review for Transformers: The Last Knight Deluxe Barricade

The weapons are ok and I do like that they can be stored in alt mode.

Another thing to note, this toy is not based on any specific car since there is no licensing. Here is a shot of the back of the box where you can see the amount of steps it should take.

Transformers News: Pictorial and Video Review for Transformers: The Last Knight Deluxe Barricade

So that was my opinion with the photos showing you what I am talking about. Chuckdawg had a very different opinion and here it is below!

chuckdawg1999 wrote:While Barricade's transformation is not perfect, it's not as fiddly as it could be. The best part is the wide assortment of accessories, I especially like the Autobot beating stick. If you're going to buy one figure from the first wave of The Last Knight Deluxe Class, make it Barricade.

Something different for the new week, as fellow Seibertronian FracturedKoi returns to the Energon Pub with a comparison between the latest Transformers Masterpiece figure from Takara Tomy - MP-36 Megatron - and the original of the alt-mode it's trying to represent: a Walther P-38 gun (or a P-1, as they have done).

Whatever your opinion on firearms, the comparison is detailed and thoughtful - and you can check it out below complete with commentary and opinions from our fellow user. Then join the conversation in the Energon Pub!

FracturedKoi wrote:Good evening, friends! It's been far too long and I apologize for my absence from the forums. Facebook has just made connecting so much easier that I've neglected any presence on here, forgive me. It's okay though, because MP-36 just came out and I thought what a better way to come back to the forums than to shoot another set of comparison images.

I will admit that while I love the animation accurate look of his robot mode I honestly do not like his gun mode at all. Instead of seeking a license and reproducing a Walther P-38, they chose (possibly wisely?) to instead model his gun mode after his cartoon appearance. Now, I can understand why they'd do this. Less fees for licensing, slightly fewer headaches with firearm realism and the legal ramifications thereof, and perhaps even a little bit more creative freedom. In my mind, though, his alt-mode just suffers for it. Both his G1 iteration and the first MP version have a much more accurate gun mode.

But enough of that, on with the images. Following each image, I'll try to comment as to what I'm attempting to compare.

Transformers News: Comparison Review: MP-36 Megatron vs. a real Walther P1
Notice the size difference. While nowhere near as oversized as his first MP release, 36 is still far oversized.

Transformers News: Comparison Review: MP-36 Megatron vs. a real Walther P1
Another angle showing size differences. The plate on top of the gun (which contains the firing pin and safety mechanism) is much thicker. The only reason I can see for this is to allow for how they're attaching Megatron's scope (which is STILL a horrible idea and now it's even less feasible than it was on the G1 toy. That toy has a black bracket which is supposed to imply that it's attached to the frame and goes around the slide to prevent it from moving with the slide.) Interestingly enough, the sights on 36 are identical to those found on a Walther...but more on that later.

Transformers News: Comparison Review: MP-36 Megatron vs. a real Walther P1
Detail showing the grips. 36 still uses the WWII Bakelite grips and keeps many of the details spot on. Notice the safety is switched on for both guns. I've seen so many images of 36's safety flipped way out of alignment and it's bugged me to no end. Glad to know it does go where intended. The screw detail is still present on 36 as is the details for the takedown lever (out of frame) and slide lock (horizontal lever above trigger). Things really start to fall apart with the grips, though, as Takara has zero detail at the bottom for any sort of magazine functionality; they replaced it with the cartoon accurate bracket...thing. Ung. They also have no detail for the lanyard strap either.

Transformers News: Comparison Review: MP-36 Megatron vs. a real Walther P1
Side-by-side profile showing frame and grip details, safety now moved to fire position. Here you can clearly see the takedown lever (front of frame, close to Megatron's head). Of note, while G1 had "serial numbers" and even one of Walther's proof marks "stamped" on it, 36 has no such details anywhere. There isn't one place where a proof mark, serial number, or even the Walther banner were put on the toy. This isn't a Walther but it's mimicking one closely. Many of the gun details are so broken up by panels that it's difficult to tell what you're looking at. The takedown lever, for example, is split in half and has a pin running right through it on the toy.

Transformers News: Comparison Review: MP-36 Megatron vs. a real Walther P1
Transformers News: Comparison Review: MP-36 Megatron vs. a real Walther P1
Here's a pretty awesome detail, though: the front sights are dovetailed into position (well, not really, but kudos for the sculpting!)


Transformers News: Comparison Review: MP-36 Megatron vs. a real Walther P1
Transformers News: Comparison Review: MP-36 Megatron vs. a real Walther P1
More awesome detail work replicating the extractor. This little bar inlaid into the top of the slide grabs the casing of the spend round and flings it out and to the left of the shooter! On the toy, it too is split by seams and in two places no less! It's difficult to make a gun transform.

Transformers News: Comparison Review: MP-36 Megatron vs. a real Walther P1
Transformers News: Comparison Review: MP-36 Megatron vs. a real Walther P1
Sight picture on 36 is hindered greatly by the scope mount. However, by flipping that mounting point out 90 degrees, you're able to get a clear sight picture.

Transformers News: Comparison Review: MP-36 Megatron vs. a real Walther P1
Now, with the sight mount twisted to the side, you actually get a clear sight picture. Blam! Take that Lego castle! (I just noticed that some of these images aren't straight...sorry about that.)

Transformers News: Comparison Review: MP-36 Megatron vs. a real Walther P1
Transformers News: Comparison Review: MP-36 Megatron vs. a real Walther P1
Here's another great detail, that small plate you see on the real gun rides against the frame. That's your trigger mechanism and they replicated it on the toy! Awesome?

Transformers News: Comparison Review: MP-36 Megatron vs. a real Walther P1
From the rear with the hammer's cocked. Aside from 36 being horribly too thick, there's also nothing for his hammer to actually strike. The firing pin is that metallic circle you see on the actual firearm. The small circle above it is the loaded-chamber indicator. If a round is chambered, a small rod protrudes through that to let you know that yes, it is indeed ready to be fired.

Transformers News: Comparison Review: MP-36 Megatron vs. a real Walther P1
A Walther P-38 (or a P1, which is what I have) is chambered in 9mm. The barrel will nearly fit inside the toy's barrel! A 9mm would fall through that barrel like a penny through a well. I haven't measured the inside diameter of the toy's barrel to try and figure out what caliber it is.

Transformers News: Comparison Review: MP-36 Megatron vs. a real Walther P1
One last detail image: they've outlined the shape of the barrel as it's inserted into the slide. As the gun functions, the slide will, well...slide around the barrel, kinda like this:

Transformers News: Comparison Review: MP-36 Megatron vs. a real Walther P1
Shown is the slide locked back as it would be on an empty magazine.

I hope you guys have enjoyed this brief look at 36 and how he compares to a real firearm. He really does try, but that cartoon detailing just gets in his way from nailing it 100%. Whatever the case, this figure truly is a masterpiece. Thanks for your time, guys and gals, and have a great night!

In other Transformers: The Last Knight toy news, we have a video review for two one-step figures, or Turbo Changers as they're known now, via fellow Seibertronian chuckdawg1999. You can check out the embedded video below, including some thoughts on the figures, and join the conversation in the Energon Pub!

The One Step changers are back as Turbo Changers. Hound and Barricade are the only new molds in wave 1 and they're fun. Barricade is the shining star and features a rotating wrist gun, gotta love the extra play value. Definitely fun and make great desk toys, worth a pickup.

It is easy to take Hasbro toys for granted sometimes when they aren't as out of reach or prestigious as importing the Takara versions. But the recent reveal of Takara's take on Kup has left the community lukewarm due to it's odd colour reference. Many fans are now torn on which version of Kup to get for their collection so we are now showing you the Hasbro version side by side with what is being referenced, his G1 toy. These images from our fellow moderator Cobotron will give people a chance to see how close (or not) the homage is. This might not be the homage some fans are looking for, but what do you think of Hasbro's effort? Which is closer to its source between Hasbro and Takara? We also have comparisons between Titans Return Perceptor and his G1 toy, for you to see how close that homage is. Those pictures also include a close shot of the Titan Master for you to see how compares to the G1 toy head it is referencing. There are also other fun pictures of these two Titans Return toys, including comparison to their previous Classics releases.
