The latest releases of Takara's Transformers Movie The Best line is out and while we have seen images of them in their packaging, we now have in hand images too. Several Twitter and Faceook users (all listed below) have uploaded images of the next wave of figures which include MB-12 Jazz, MB-13 Bonecrusher, MB-14 Megatron and MB-15 Lockdown. Below you will see the best images yet of these figures all in spiffy new paint jobs different from their original releases. We also get to finally know just how different this leader Megatron is from the previous release. He ends up being an entire shade lighter, along with the striking red paint on his face. Check out the new images below, and let us know in the Energon Pub Forums if you'll be picking these figures up or will be waiting for Hasbro's upcoming Studio Series!

The paint definitely feel more "premium". Anyone who missed out on the original releases of these molds and are stuck to go to the aftermarket should consider these new Takara editions.

The weapon isn't new: it originally came with Final Battle Jazz, the one with the battle damage:

The MB one is the first to bundle both, so no need to double dip this time around... though the price may render that point moot.

It isn't ironic, Takara Tomy is also releasing the Studio Series line and would have known about them before they announced the 2018 Movie the Best run.

So, getting a better look at Megatron it does seem he did retain the silver paint wash, it just doesn't show up well in pictures. I'm fine with this, what I'm not fine with is AmiAmi wanting $35 to ship it... Good thing I have some other stuff ready to ship so I'm just waiting for them to recalculate and hopefully I can offset the cost.

Be sure your stuff is scheduled to come out the same month or you are screwed. I learned my lesson with them and Hobby Search. Now I think I'm done with preorders for stores that don't have a "pile-of-loot" system.

No worries, it's stuff that's already out: Legends G2 Megatron and Windblade, and MP Targetmaster Hot Rod. I thought MtB Megatron would qualify for registered SAL, but the lowest was SAL parcel which was just a little less than EMS. I guess he's heavier than I thought. I'll have to keep that in mind next month when Nemesis Prime comes out.

And it worked out, I just got the new total and the EMS shipping only went up 1,500 JPY by adding the three items which was less than the their total for SAL. Hopefully I'll have all of these by next weekend.

Oh, I know, I meant it as in "new for that version of the mold", which is an even bigger complaint.
I wonder if the fact that weapon was gang molded with the damaged pieces somehow affected the paint budget, maybe they "waste" plastic on both th original gun and the damaged part and that's why they couldn't paint his damned feet.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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 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.

Posted by EvasionModeBumblebee on May 14th, 2018 @ 3:40pm CDT
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.
IMG_0025.JPG

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?
IMG_0026.JPG

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.
IMG_0028.JPG

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.

I am glad you are excited D-Max, but remember that this guy shares the same transformation as Studio Series Bee. Him being bigger and having his back actually attached helps, so you are sure to like him more, but you'll see a lot of similarities.

How much will you hate me for telling you my Studio Bee is more solid and stable than either my Hasbro or Takara TLK Bees?

To be dead honest, I am just really happy for D-Max. He waited long enough and in the meantime really hated a toy sharing that same mold, that I am glad he will still get something he likes in the end.

Wanted to return to this thread to share this: Nemesis Prime is fantastically painted and suitably deranged looking. This captures a movie Nemesis perfectly, and I love the paint work. It makes this figure worth the $50 I spent on him recently

I think most of us thought Movie the Best, Takara Tomy's line of screen-accurate repaints and retools, had become obsolete thanks to Studio Series. Apparently Takara Tomy disagrees. Coming completely out of nowhere we're getting our first look at MB-EX Bumblebee from Age of Extinction thanks to a magazine scan posted by Weibo user Xiao Ming (爆料人小明). Based on the 2014 Deluxe class figure this repaint features an all-new claw weapon. Even though this is the first time we're seeing this he'll be coming out as a Toys 'R Us Japan exclusive in late March for 3,238 JPY.

Alongside Bee Japan will also be getting the well documented Studio Series repaint of The Last Knight Drift with baby Dinobots as an SS-EX release. He, too, will be a Toys 'R Us Japan exclusive priced at 4,318 JPY and also coming out in late March.

What do you think, is SS-EX Bumblebee worth tracking down or is the new part not worth buying the figure again? Sound off in the Energon Pub forums below!

Woah! I wonder which one has more paint, that one or Autobots United?

The full name seems to be MB-EX Arm Gun Bumblebee. A bit odd, but it may be because the "straight redeco with new accessory" follows the Movie The Best philosophy more than the Studio Series' "new mold" one.

Is cool but my AoE Bumblebee already looks like that anyways (theirs is probably a bit cleaner than my paintjob) without that weapon which I don't care for anyways. And we're getting that Drift with the mini dinos so eh nothing special here but cool anyways.

I like this repaint, plus the gun accessory is cool. But... skip. I want to focus on MPs first.

BTW, found this on Robotkindom:

New pictures including in package are there. The 60$ cost isn't bad at all either. ;)

AOE deluxe Bee is a bad mold. No amount of lipstick can make this pig look good.

That drift, however, rock this deco and the baby dinos are adorable.

Huh, that's interesting!

Bee's got a few more paint apps than the standard AOE Deluxe, but honestly not that many. It even looks like the stripe in vehicle mode doesn't continue on the back of the car - much like the AOE deluxe, which is still one of the most baffling paint omissions I've seen on a figure.

The right arm might actually be remolded from what I can tell, I don't see the mold's original plasma cannon in the arm. The new gun does look super cool, though.

The AOE Bee mold is pretty good, but I feel like this design will get a better studio series figure some time in the future.

No it's not. I really like it. Has some really nice details and shapes to the design and I have it both as the original AoE figure which I painted and as a voyager sized KO (with some metal parts). I still far prefer it to the VW bug.

I second the Carn.

this is a great mold, one of my top 5 favorite movie Bees. That new weapon looks cool too, but I am satisfied with my AOE one. It's great
