As we previously stated, 7-Eleven Japan revealed a new toy today, on 3/8. It turns out it's a redeco of Legendary Bumblebee Movie Optimus Prime in Nemesis Prime colours, with all that lovely teal. It can be preordered now on the 7-Eleven site for 7500 yen plus tax. That is the only place to get it at the moment, so it's only available to Japanese residents. It may show up at site sponsors though (for a premium). The toy will be released September 13th, 2019, in 7-Eleven stores in Japan. You can check out the images below. Enjoy, and let us know what you think!

Finally, an official version of the knockoff that has literally been EVERYWHERE on eBay. I swear I could look up a potato on eBay on a computer that I've never used before, and this would still show up in the recommended results.

KO Trash-talk aside, this looks pretty cool.

The KO is more expensive though, right? At least more expensive than the original legendary prime.

So 7-11 huh? Hasbro should work with Circle K (insert local gas station/C-store here) to bring exclusives to the states. Fill your tank, get some smokes, maybe a scratch off ticket and an $80 toy.

This is the redeco I was hoping for to justify the figure. Hoping it's not too hard/pricey to get here.

I don't remember seeing them at gas stations, but that doesn't mean much.

Funny story actually. One of my clients has a huge ESSO sign inside there building and I asked about it and apparently the building was an ESSO station originally (a company I've never heard of). On my way to the hotel in Laval, QC I saw an ESSO station. Crazy right?!

EDIT: ESSO is a trading name for ExxonMobil and its related companies.

insert the more you know meme here >:oP

ESSO stations are popular in Germany as well! More so, if you where stationed overseas, you used the ESSO stations because of the fuel stamps we had to purchase. That was a long time ago.

The US had Essos before they rebranded the company in 1972. The rest of the world never caught up with the rebranding though.

And Esso even appeared in the Japanese G1 cartoon:

As much as I would like to get this, I've got the original Weijiang OSKO Nemesis Prime. Being in Japan, the official version might be cheaper, but outside, I'm not so sure.

I reckon the official version is going to be over 100 dollars outside Japan, whereas the original Weijiang version is around 130 dollars or so (possibly including postage) here: - http://sirtoys.com/toys.php?c=23&p=2750 ... Black.html .

Also, there's the newly released Black Mamba version (although the lorry mode is different) : - http://sirtoys.com/toys.php?c=23&p=4651 ... ck_BM.html . Thus version is about the same price as the official TT version. Both of the KO versions don't really have much teal, though.

I suppose it's great that there are at least three great options for a large, film-style Nemmy-P.

Just wanted to show this, they had one of the Bumblebee Movie displays in a Walmart down the street from me, with blankets and posters. The poster in the middle was the one i bought, pretty cool!

That one sure is yawn inducing, never really thought the Evasion Mode version was as good as it could be. But the Legendary version really lives up to its name, it's beautiful with all the teal flames and added details.

Did that display just go up at that store? Most stores had them up in December and tore them down in January. I wonder if they're going back up for the home release of the movie? The posters are the same as the ones from the first run. Looks like wave 1 of the Mini-Bots reissues are in there, too. :-?

They had one version up when the movie came out but then this particular one popped up. I guess they are just repurposing it. Adding the posters, blankets, pillows, and the Mini-bots. I bought one of the pillows awhile back, but at that time, they didn’t have th posters. So when i saw it, i thought they had torn them down. I posted a better shot of this particular display a week or two ago under the “Virginia Sightnings” where the opposite side was nothing but the Wave 1 Mini-bots. In my area, its the only display still remaining.

The bumblebee display in my area was always for bedding and the like, and its been up since last holiday season.

Mine was mainly toys, books, and activity sets (and the posters), plus the pillows. Ironically there were barely any actual Bumblebee movie figures, it was mostly Cyberverse and reissues (It's double sided).
