Thanks to Loopaza, we now have high resolution scans of the latest issue of the Figure King Magazine, issue 247. Oddly enough, the big highlight in this issue is Power Charge Bumblebee from the upcoming Bumblebee Movie line. So yes, a gimmick centered toy aimed at kids is the most promoted item of Takara this month. We get to see a big promo shot we had not seen in yesterday's news.

Aside from Bee, we also have a lot of images of Legendary Optimus Prime and an image comparing it to the voyager Evasion Mode Optimus Prime, showing it to be the size of a modern day leader class toy (or just about). Speaking of scale, we also see how big Micromasters are, which is the exact same size as the Prime Master decoy armour (so slightly bigger than their G1 counterparts).

We also see other Transformers Siege toys, but nothing that has yet to be revealed. Thanks to these high resolution images, we can finally see that this is the final product with weathering effects. They are simply less pronounced in the final toy than what we had seen from Hasbro which was only digital renders and painted prototypes. So this tells us that as expected, the brand unification is in full effect and the weathering won't be as intense, especially since that would mean a lot more paint applications than usual.

We also see Masterpiece Optimus Prime version 3 which highlights his articulation and backpack.

And there is more, much more, like Takara Tomy Studio Series Starcream, Movie Bumblebee and KSI Sentry, MPM-06 Ironhide, Encore Big Convoy, Studio Series DOTM Ratcher, Ironhide and Shadow Raider, PP Throne of The Primes, Masterpiece Wheeljack, Legends Grotusque and Repugnus and the Unite Warriors reissues.

Fine.



Sideswipe has the weathering so it’s probaky just takara painted proto

Sadly, the weathering effects will not be avoided, we see them better now in the new scans:

You can at least see it on Optimus's thigh and wheel. I am not a big fan because this seems like they didnt really go all the way. Reminds me of Beast Hunters Wheeljack.

I asked about that at SDCC to the Hasbro team. I misspoke with my question by asking if Cog could transform into the individual robot modes for Gasket and Grommet. As I was asking the question, I was really thinking for some reason that Gasket and Grommet had individual robot modes, when in fact they do not and not sure what I was mixing them up with.

Cog is amazing, by the way. Way to take a BS character and make him awesome.

I'm definitely getting excited for SIEGE. I'm also pretty pumped with that upscale retool and redeco of Evasion Optimus.

Pretty sure that's what it is.

I mean, who'd leave those elbows ON PURPOSE?!

I must say, though, that the scaled back weathering effects look much better to me. A little does really go a long way. It should help the Siege figures fit in that much better with the rest of the Classics/Universe/Generations line. These high resolution scans also make Optimus Prime's red look a whole lot more on model. The low resolution scans before made him look almost hot pink.

Apparently Takara. I've heard of a glass jaw, but a glass elbow?

Any prices on that big boy yet? Not sure if I can justify him and emop.

I mean, you get me. Clearly. ;)^

Who else is guessing $79.99 USD? Pretty standard leader price for a Takara piece. Or, $89.99.

Definitely one of my favourites too. Fingers crossed for the likes of Six-Gun, Slammer and Brunt.

Me too they're really nice, just a pinch, like the perfect seasoning. Invisible from some angles.

Exactly. Less is more with the "battle worn" paint apps. The understated details tell a better story and make a better figure than the over-the-top painted by hand details Hasbro showed off at SDCC. Now, if only they could have shown as much restraint with the "greebling" on some of the figures. Poor Chromia probably got it worst, and Ultra Magnus isn't much better, unfortunately.

I like the Greebling on Magnus, looks interesting on Cromia. But this a new effort. Let's see how these look in person.

I like them. It's pretty awesome, and helps set this figures apart from others. And it gives me a good old video game WFC/FOC feel
