It feels like ages but finally, Walmart.com is stocking their own prized exclusive, The Last Knight Deluxe Hot Rod. This has been a really odd road so far for this exclusive, with people thinking it would never come and him popping up on Amazon (not stocked). This news comes to us from fellow Seibertronian nycPrime, and you can click here to get your Hot Rod.

there's always other avenues openly available to acquire Cogman(& cheaper too! like Ebay) >:oP https://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?siteid=0&pub=5574891718&campid=5336631220&customid=&toolid=10001&mkevt=1&mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fm.ebay.co.uk%2Fitm%2F3TRANSFORMERS-%20...%20iid%25253A13%3C%2Fa%3E%3F

GAH! Stew, thanks for reminding me!

Be careful on Ebay folks. There are a lot of Cogman's being sold for cheap from canadian users who have never registered and have no feedback, and there are like 10 or 15 of them. If someone wants to order from them, please do, but be careful, this has scam written all over it

The deluxe scale works perfectly for the MP version stickers! :APPLAUSE:

Well, now that you mention it.. I did find this on Twitter from DaimChoc Reports feed (incidentally, Watching his page is good for news and special stuff Transformers related)
https://www.facebook.com/DaimChocReport ... =3&theater

I am not sure if this is just a heavily modified version of the Deluxe, or a Third Party or KO.. But if it's a small conversion.. I would do it! It looks primo and sweet! The chest doesn't look like the standard deluxe.. Is that a TAKARA TOMY Custom? Anyone know what this is?? It says custom but you never know..

Image

If that can be done with a deluxe that already looks amazing, Imagine what a Proper Masterpiece of him will look like?! TLK Hot Rod is quickly becoming a Favorite of mine..

Even without the heavy Modifications someone else did, look at the detail work on the face! For a deluxe, this mold is absolutely fantastic!! :APPLAUSE: Two Thumbs Up!

I personally like Hot Rod the way he is. As neat as it'd be to add more color on him, I think the flame decals would look inconsistent with a dark Lamborghini. Sometimes, if I see the way a certain version of a character looks, I'd stick with that appearance; i.e. Movie Prime looks great with the flames and different positions of red and blue, but without them he looks off to me (doesn't look bad on TFP Optimus). BH Bulkhead is an exception since the Brawn esque colors and the different head give him a new personality.

Still can't wait to get Hot Rod. If we get more sightings of other characters, then I'll be as happy as anyone singing the 12 days of xmas (3 months away, btw!)

That's true. I may modify slightly if only to match what I've seen in media (TV/movie/comic) like I did with Beast Hunters Optimus Prime from that TFP. I do wish he came with his weapon though..

Yea, I get that. To me, Movie Prime does match his flames. There were a lot of redeco versions of Prime in Red and Blue Ala G-1 esque style done with the Leader Class version for both TFTM and TFROTF, and then there were the ubiquitous Red and Blue silver repaints on the evasion from TFAOE. I do prefer the original Colors presented as well. However.. I think that black Lamborghini's can also come in black with flames..It's not like it hasn't been done already.. I just figure if I get two figures, why not try to G-1 it up a bit..

It's a heavy custom. I posted a video of it when I got my Hot Rod last week wishing it looked more like that far more accurate custom but even as is, he's a fun figure.

I'm tempted by the gun a shapeways user made but of course it adds more cost to a figure that wasn't particularly cheap to begin with. Still it really does add to the look of the figure as you can see in the pics.

Wow! That's a cool accessory! It looks fantastic! I may have to get that too! Might I add, what a beautiful Alt Mode too! Wow! This guy just gets better and better!

On a side note. Here is the pathetic Transformers display at my local K-Mart. In the left corner you can't see, there's a Hot Rod from the Head Masters reboot toyline..I've got the MP.. don't need that version. I plan to hit Wal-Mart on my lunch hour next.. only 3 miles from me.. The FRANTIC search continues!!! :BOOM:

I realised I still haven't got around to applying my Titans Return Hot Rod reprolabels to that figure. I ordered them when I just wanted to improve that figure but left it for a while after painting it up to look more Marvel comics like and the stickers might make it look too detailed.

I proably won't do thiiiiis though but just so it's out there... :-$

Well so much for my theory that Walmart bailed on this exclusive figure. What a shame they didn't have this in store the day the Blu-Ray/DVD came out. Would have been really smart at this point to have packaged him with a version of the movie to generate some extra sales. Good ol' US toy distribution!

Actually, I'd probably do just the Gold and red Flame for the Hood, and call it a day. Tho, by the looks of the chest, you will have to center it and cut to match the hood break lines. I wonder if you place it on altmode, and use a hobby knife, would it be easier to get cut correctly and centered???

I'd be interested to see if you do, do it.. how it looks and how you did it.

I'd love that! But dang it! I Have to find one available to purchase first!! Both Wal-Marts here near me are out!! Come on!! I guess my next stop after work will be Toys-R-us.. :BANG_HEAD:

Sheesh! Finding a Deluxe Hot Rod at Retail is starting to look like Finding that exclusive Star Wars Darth Maul back during Phantom Menace! No where to be seen, and when it was found.. stampede and fan battles in the isles..

Not saying Hot Rod's figure is that hot, but I think if they did a Leader Class that looks a lot like the modified version we already saw online.. we could have a Cabbage Patch store riot around X-mas.. Give us More Hot Rod!! I will forever by a Hasbro fan if they did it like this!!

Yeah that's what I was thinking. Though even a flame like this looks a lil too 80s for such a modern car mode but it can work on a toy if not the real car. Not sure I want to 'waste' on my TR Hot Rod stickers on TLK Hot Rod when I like how TLK Hot Rod already looks (though I may paint over his red with the slightly more orange hue seen in the film). I just like black and orange-red for some reason.

Leader? :O Bit too big methinks. A lil guy like Bee got that only cos he's Bee. Hot Rod hasn't got that kind of recognition and popularity and we need Leader class figures of those who neeeeeed it more like Blackout. :P

We rarely get bigger than Deluxe for any carformers. The only exceptions that come to mind are T30 Springer - who is more of an armoured car than anything street-legal - and various Bumblebees because, well, Bumblebee.

Yea, I suppose Leader is a bit premature, unless TF 6 kills off Prime like in 86, and they make Hot Rod Rodimus Prime again.. if that happens, then a Leader Class would be more appropriate. You're right tho.. Blackout desperately needed a Leader Class.. but that ship sailed long ago me thinks. I will be on the lookout for hopefully a better Hot Rod, and hopefully in the far far future (cause Takara is working on a 10 year release schedule judging by the Masterpiece trickles we get for the movie line) since we have to wait for the 1st 10th Anniversary movie Masterpieces to run their course.. I guess Hot Rod is going to be awhile.

Yea, Bee has Recognition.. but I have to say, I really love this rendition of Hot Rod.. Almost got the same giddy kid feeling I had back in the 80s with the original. Tho less Confliction over him, unlike the original only because Prime was killed.. still going to therapy over that! LMAO!

I see the movies continue their penchant for making popular characters look very little, if anything, like they looked in the cartoons. Looking at this figure, it doesn't say 'Hot Rod' to me....

And the Human Alliance versions of Bee, Jazz, Skids, Mudflap, Barricade, Sideswipe and Soundwave. :)


skywarp-2 wrote: You're right tho.. Blackout desperately needed a Leader Class.. but that ship sailed long ago me thinks.


Still hoping that Movie Edition thing Hasbro registered may include such items. They could do at least two releases of it (Blackout and Grindor... maybe three if including the strange Chopter from the Tiny Turbo range cos I do like his green colour scheme). There's certainly demand from many collectors for a Leader Blackout mold but dunno if enough to support the costs of producing it. Still amazed Brawl got a Leader class figure so early on in addition to his deluxe.

Yeah I like him. He's nothing like G1 Hot Rod at all but he's still a fun character with a cool design (I've even grown fond of the face since my initial reaction to it) and slick car mode and colour scheme and i love the time gun (seriously hasbro why you no include it?) and his partnership with Bee in the WWII scene is one of my personal fave moments from any TF fiction.

No one said characters sharing the names of G1 characters have to resemble them in any way. Prime and Bee are recognisably similar is various ways to the G1 originals (Prime moreso) probably cos they are so iconic in the franchise. And hey I often would get disappointed the cartoon models didn't look much like the toys even when they were supposed to be the SAME character. Some fans felt the opposite way having to settle for toys that didn't look like their fave cartoon characters.

What the hell is with the $20 price point, walmart sells deluxes for under $16 and has been since they were released. Hot Rod was one of the few figures i was considering buying from TLK line but i refuse to pay $22(with tax) for a deluxe.

If it helps, Hot Rod is at least far better painted than the lousy redeco of the otherwise fine AoE Bee in the TLK line. :P

Seibertronian ScottyP has made us aware that the Transformers The Last Knight Leader Class Dragonstorm is now in stock over on Amazon.com!
Due to the notoriously spotty distribution of the Last Knight toy line, many collectors are looking for alternate online options to pick up the figures. We thought we'd alert you to one of these alternate options. The modern duocon is currently in stock at the time of writing for $50 USD, but it's probably not going to last long. Pick up yours now here!!

If you see this toy at physical retail anywhere, please report it to us under the sightings tab!

I'm kind of mixed on getting Dragonstorm as of now. The reviews proved that he wasn't as bad as I thought the set would be, both bots look good, and the combination of the Dragon mode is really good. The only issues I have are that I want to get other figures in the line, the potential QC issues some fans had, and I feel that Leader Class figures don't have the same bang for you buck bonus that the Leader figures from the past got. Maybe if I see Dragonstorm on clearance then I will get him with no problems.

So if Takara Tomy was to do a Movie best series for TLK, what would be the top 5 figures to get thus far???

Hasbro version or Takara, which is the best?

Got mine from Toys R Us. There was only one left so I guess I was luck. Then after getting Dragonstorm out of the box, transform it to knights and back, 10 mins later the left head fell off. :BANG_HEAD: The fragile plastic inside the head is really an issue. I had to superglue it back on. It stays now, but the lower jaw cannot move because of the glue. So definitely be extra careful when buying this figure. Check the box and snap those plastic bands around the mouths carefully, transform it carefully, and play it carefully. Or just buy the mega one step. It's much more durable.

Transformers The Last Knight Allspark Tech Figures Wave 2 will be coming out shortly. So far we have a description of what these figures will be like. We also know how many of each character are packed in each case so you know which ones to look for.

Transformers The Last Knight Allspark Tech Figures Wave 2:
The next evolution of robots in disguise are here with the Transformers The Last Knight Allspark Tech Figures! Each transforming toy goes from Autobot or Decepticon to vehicle and back again, and includes exceptional articulation with cool accessories. It is the key to our existence, the essence of life, the source of all power. It is the Allspark cube. Now imagine the power to bring these Transformers figures to life is in kids’ hands with Allspark Tech. Allspark Tech figures stand at a 5.5-inch-scale and feature classic Transformers conversion with a twist. Unite them with the Allspark Tech cube to bring them to life with motion-activated lights, sounds, and phrases (cube only available in starter pack sold separately.) Convert each Allspark Tech figure from robot to car mode in about 5 steps. Ages 8 and up.

Case includes 6 individually packaged figures:
1x TRA MV5 ALLSPARK TECH BUMBLEBEE
1x TRA MV5 ALLSPARK TECH AUTOBOT HOUND
1x TRA MV5 ALLSPARK BARRICADE
1x TRA MV5 ALLSPARK AUTOBOT DRIFT
2x TRA MV5 ALL SPARK TECH PLUTO

Not surprising but this is sold out!

If you're in BK or Manhattan and want 1 at cost+tax, pm me.

Fellow Seibertronian PrimevsPrime has sent us a link to their video review of the Transformers: The Last Knight deluxe class Strafe figure - pretty much a straight repaint of the Age of Extinction Dinobot! You can check out the clip below, and scroll even further down for a full luck at the entire dino-tastic team in their robot and beast modes from the TLK line, too!

Finally scored Nitro at my local Walmart (Tigard, OR) -- just as he was being stocked! They also had Scorn, Legends Seaspray and Cosmos. If I hadn't lingered that 5mins, I would've totally missed out.

I do want to get at least one of those allspark figures at some point. Not the best things, but some of them look alright, and I would like an actual allspark to go with my movie bots

Much better price, D! I'm holding out for when he may appear at Ross or Marshals, honestly.
