The final known figures part of Takara's Transformers Movie The Best line have been released and are shipping out to fans. This line comemorates the 10th year anniversary of the live action films and also includes the latest molds from Transformers The Last Knight. Many fans see these releases of these molds be the equivalent to the more premium "Takara version" one expects to get when comparing to a Hasbro release. For The Last Knight, almost all releases were identical to Hasbro's, so it is in this line that we get different paint applications. We can see several comparisons below.

The new toys released are MB-16 Jetfire, MB-17 Optimus Prime Revenge Version, MB-18 War Hammer Bumblebee, MB-19 Hound, and MB-20 Nemesis Prime. Some are very different, like Hound, while some look almost identical, like Bumblebee which still seems to have the panel misalignment problem.

We get a really good look at Hound's new accessory which also becomes a weapon storage case, with a detailed interior full of sculpted ammo. Also, look at how huge that Jetfire box is. It's pretty cool to see Takara still package their Transformers in alt mode even with this as a result.

I'm looking forward to my War Hammer Bee. It's been a long wait for a TLK Bee

Even though I hate the mold, that Nemesis Prime have some NICE paint.

That Hound is also a winner. That weapon storage box is pure genius. Allow me to be an ass and hope there's a cheap KO of that acessory that will pop out for all of us who have the regular TLK voyager Hound.

Oh totally, I didn't pick up a normal TLK Bee once i heard this was announced (not that it mattered since i never saw TLK Bee in my area)

Bee looks rather disappointing. He is literally the Malibu Stacy with a new hat. But since I didn't get bamboozled by the first Malibu Stacy, I guess I can't complain much.

This weapon storage on Hound is awesome!

Nice detail on Nemesis Prime head!

They did remold Bee's arm cannon! It's on his right arm now, I was really hoping that was the case. Can't wait, hope he arrives soon!

Wasn't planning on getting any of these but seeing that Hounds shield can store all of his guns, I might get him. Might also get Jetfire due to the fact that we may never get a better figure of him and his paint job looks good this time.

I never found it either, and I never saw it online for less than $30, so I figured I might as well spend the extra bit to get a hammer with him

The cannon is an accessory that can attach to either arm.

Yeah, but with the original figure you couldn't bend the elbow when it was attached to his right arm (well, you could, but then his arm shield would be facing the wrong way). Like the studio series figure, they mirrored the cannon so that it can bend while attached to his right arm.

Dr Wu had one that transforms into the triple chain gun but I heard the green isn’t a match

Fellow Seibertronian MegaX Master has sent us a link to a new video review of the various Takara Tomy Transformers figures released over the past weekend - specifically, we're looking at the Movie the Best series, and number MB-19 Hound in the Voyager class size.

The video is embedded below for your viewing convenience, and comes from Japanese reviewer 黎明サナトリウム, featuring the accessories, transformation, poses and review of both robot and vehicle mode for the live action movie weapons speacialist succeeding Ironhide. Take a look, and let us know what you think of this last part of the movie verse line preceding the Studio Series figures in the Energon Pub discussion boards!

So other than the paint, is MB-17 different to MB-11 in any way?

Accessories seem to be the same, face sculpt is the same, and even the articulated hands looks to be the same.

MB-11 uses the Asia exclusive Ultimate Optimus Prime as a base (for the weapons and hands along with the retooled body parts that originated with DotM Striker Optimus Prime) and bright colors, while MB-17 uses the original RotF Leader (with some Ultimate parts) as a base for Jetfire compatibility with darker colors and gimmicked sword arm replaced.

Basically it comes down to having different torso parts and different shades of paint between the two figures.

I see, thanks.

I could not see any apparent differences from the pictures. And accessories are the same. So even the articulated hands were the same to be able to hold the accessories.

Hey, for those that have MB-16 Jetfire, what are your thoughts? I'm not a big fan of the character, but that alt mode (from above) looks sweet.

So I got my war hammer Bee about a week ago, and he's a pretty good figure - flawed, but still good.

Starting off in vehicle mode, one of the biggest things that differentiates this Bee from the regular release is the shade of yellow used - it's much better looking and more screen accurate than the original. There are a few more paint apps in vehicle mode than the original, but not that many. That being said, the paint was a pretty easy fix.
<!-- ia3 -->IMG_0025.JPG<!-- ia3 -->
What wasn't an easy fix (and something I'm still trying to figure out) is getting the secondary wings to line up in vehicle mode. Whenever I transform him either one or both of them will leave a gap that I'm not sure how to fix. I'm not sure if this issue applied to the original TLK Bee or not. Is there a way to keep it from doing this?
<!-- ia2 -->IMG_0026.JPG<!-- ia2 -->
Robot mode looks really good! The way the legs transform is a cool innovation - and the way the figure pulls it off is one of the areas that I feel is better than the studio series. Paint work again needed some help, but another fairly easy fix. The plasma cannon is thankfully remolded to fit on his right arm, which is great, although the method of detaching and reattaching the arm/cannon is MUCH better on the studio series. The hammer is cool, and has a hinge so that it stores in vehicle mode looking like some kind of tank barrel.
<!-- ia1 -->IMG_0028.JPG<!-- ia1 -->
Overall this figure is really good! Overall it's not as good as SS Bee (which had the advantage of learning from the mistakes of this mold), but it's still good. The feet aren't loose enough to be annoying, and none of the parts pop off except for the hands. When it comes to this figure compared to the standard deluxe, I guess it's situational. If you're not a big fan of Bee and you were able to find the wave 3 deluxe at retail, you might not need this one. In my case, however, as a fan of Bumblebee and having never seen the wave 3 deluxe in stores, this was totally worth it. Especially when online prices for the standard deluxe TLK Bee were only around $10 less than this one. For a great shade of yellow, better paint apps, a more accurate remolded plasma cannon and a hammer, this figure was totally worth it and a great addition to my collection.
