Thanks to fellow Seibertronian Ironhidensh, we have the first global sighting of the exclusive Hot Rod die cast car from Jada's Transformers: The Last Knight line of cars. He found it at Walmart, of course, the exclusive retailer in Mishawaka, Indiana for $19.99. It also comes with a collectable 100% metal coin. There are two other smaller scales of Hot Rod offered in this line and they are all exclusive to Walmart. For those unaware, these are licenced non transforming cars. Will any of you be getting this?

Thanks to Argos, we have a new reveal for the retailer exclusive 'Reveal The Shield' subline of The Last Knight: Roleplay masks! The masks, seemingly recolors of earlier masks from Transformers: Prime, use the red eyes to decode the Tech Spec-like markings on Reveal The Shield toys, revealing hidden messages! Check out the stock images below, along with a TFW sighting of Reveal The Shield voyager Optimus Prime in Taiwan, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub!

Wait a sec, these also have hidden messages on them? So the only wa to see them would be to put the mask on and stare into a mirror, trippy!

Now I want a 100% movie accurate non-transforming robot figure to go with it.

That will probabl happen, but it might cost you one of your kidneys looking at how much the others go for.

Seibertronian and Youtuber CdogCdog4 has taken the time to do some reviews about the new Jada Diecast Transformers: The Last Knight Vehicles. These are now appearing at Walmarts all across the US, both the exclusive Hot Rod and the non exclusive others, like the ones being reviewed. CdogCdog4 reviews both Bumblebee and Optimus in the 1:24 scale, the largest of three scales you can get these cars. Enjoy!

I really like these, makes me miss the Human Alliance line. I knew that Optimus looked too small to be 1:24 scale.

To be fair, while the Human Alliance bots were supposedly 1:24 scale, the humans were not.

Yea it's unfortunate that Jada doesn't seem to be able to get scale down like the Japanese seem to be able to do (ar least when it's titled as such). But I guess at least the cars are? And Prime still looks great. I already sscrewed all 8 screws back into the bottom of him to put them back in packaging which you have to take apart at every corner, and practically flatten the box, to get him out. It's amazing I got them back in looming brand new they display better that way imo.

These are 90 percent accurate to movie versions in movie prime side mirrors didn't look like that in movie, I don't remember seeing those things on from roof sticking up on sides of truck, and bumblebee doors I remember seeing bumblebee car doors open up sameway that hotrod does

Thanks to a sighting from TFW2005, we have word that a new figurine set from Transformers: The Last Knight has been spotted at Universal Studios! The set features Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Megatron, and Sqweeks, all underpainted and non-transformable. As this is a Universal Studios set, that means it is probably fairly expensive. Check out the image taken of the set below, and let us know what you think of it in the comments section below!

not worth unless you can upgrade it with your own painting skills. A deluxe at Universal is 50 bucks. So think about this. I'm thinking 40 bucks

I was thinking more along the lines of robot replicas.

Also from Brazilian retailer Hobby Brinquedos, we are shown images of the whole line of voice-changing masks from the movie Transformers: The Last Knight. Featuring Megatron, Optimus Prime, and Bumblebee as we knew, we also have two images of a Sqweeks mask - check it out below!

Our regular Weibo source NOTRAB has uploaded a series of in-hand images of the Jada diecast 1:24 Western Star Optimus Prime truck from Transformers: The Last Knight! The big impression comes from the comparison shots, showing the non-transforming cab to be about the same size as previous Leader Class vehicle modes - but check it out for yourselves below!

That sure is a big diecast truck. I like it but not sure I have a use for it. Sorta thing I would likely buy if I was rich enough to own one of those really cool and large non-transforming highly detailed super accurate figures that cost loads. Could happily display this truck next to the Optimus Prime figure then.

Our old friend Scottimus Prime has discovered some of the Jada 1:64 scale Transformers The Last Knight Diecast cars! These Hot wheel-sizes heroes (and villains) were found at a Wal-Mart in New York for $3.97 each! Check out the photos below!
