Thanks to multiple source outlets, we have a swarm of new in-hand images for you to check out of the latest round of Takara's Movie the best line!

First up, from twitter user アルフェス2010 we have a slew of new images of the leader class Optimus Prime! This figure is a re-release of the Buster Optimus Prime mold that comes with his swords, blaster, hooks, and even his bladed knuckles!

The same twitter user also gives us some in-hand images of the new Dinoriders Grimlock and Strafe! Grimlock is a repaint of his Age of Extinction voyager toy while Strafe is a repaint of his deluxe toy. Both come with a small rider figure, with Optimus Prime mounting his mighty dino-steed and Bumblebee finally living up to his name and soaring through the clouds on Strafe's back.

Hobby Search continues the new images with packaging images of the above mentioned dinoriders, with Grimlock and Strafe found here respectively.

Finally. Lapooza Mega store has posted a Facebook video of the 2 little figures, Prime and Bee, that come with the Dinoriders. Check out all the images and video below!

I still am picking up this guy even though I plan to pick up 3 of MPM Prime. This mold has played a huge role in revitalizing my interest in Transformers toys and my original 2009 toy has been with me for almost a decade, providing me with countless hours of entertainment and joy. Not only has it marveled me, I have shown him off to many people over the years and he has both astounded and amazed. I consider ROTF Leader Prime to be the embodiment of the best aspects of Transformers toys and the epitome of the pinnacle of Transformers toy engineering. For me, this 10th Anniversary mold is a symbolic and sentimental purchase. As much as I love him, I don't own any copies of this mold other than the original 2009 Leader and Buster. So, it's kind of poetic and fitting, to own both the first renditions of the mold and the final. It rounds off the experience perfectly for me and it's a perfect sendoff to one of my favorite Transformers figures of all time. It's also a perfect figure to pass the baton on to MPM Optimus Prime. As sad as it is, we're long overdue for a figure to dethrone him and usurp his position as the best Optimus Prime figure.

With a heavy heart, it's time to say good bye and to Transform and Transcend.

It is indeed sexy as hell. More pics by clicking the pic.

ImageThe figure is so nice, that it has made me rethink my view of movie figures.


I learned that that Soundwave is a repaint of the EXCELLENT DOTM Human Alliance. The one I already have, with the dude and Laserbeak. So, yeah, those who missed out on the original being all "Asia Exclusive" and were smart enough to pre-order this one will not be disapointed for sure.

Here, here! I feel very much the same way about that mold. :)

Except for lacking the HA accessories. Laserbeak would have been nice. Still it's a very cool Soundwave.

but takara

could also be a TRU exclusive. Happened before.

If I'm not mistaken that's only happened with USA Editions which this is not.

Plus its the same toy, so why would you want to import it when you could get it at TRU?

Two reasons: First, Hasbro and Takara Tomy price the MP cars at about the same MSRP (US$79.99 will probably mean 8,000 JPY), but as you know Transformers don't actually sell at MSRP in Japan. So realistically we can probably import this guy for around US$65-$70 shipped total which is way better than US$80 plus tax. Second is pretty simple, since I don't have a local TRU (the nearest is 70 miles away) I'm going to have to get one online anyway so better to have one locked in with a pre-order than to hope I'm online at the right time to get one off TRU.com.

The few things I've grabbed from this series have all been super nice. I'm probably going to go all in with these three March releases and my wallet is going to cry!

It is very easy for westerners to forget or ignore but one of the biggest changes brought to the 10th Anniversary Movie The Best MB 11 Pptimus Prime are the electronics. You remember your ROTF leader simply saying his name over and over? Well takara went all out on this ultimate rendition of the mold.

Watch the video below to see the plethora of phrases Optimus says. These are all recorded by the legendary Tessho Genda, who is the voice of Optimus Prime/Convoy in both the G1 cartoon and in the Live Action films (just like Peter Cullen). Tessho Genda is easily the most prolific and legendary voice actor attached to American properties in Japan since not only is he the voice of Optimus Prime but also the voice of Batman (he is the Japanese counterpart to Kevin Conroy) and God of War's Kratos.

For those unaware, this is also the very first Takara release to have articulated hands and the knuckle accessory, along with the retooled abdominal area, swords, hooks and gun made from gaz tanks of the later versions.

And he's the voices of Tigger, Foghorn Leghorn, Mace Windu, and the official Japanese dub voice actor for Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, Dan Aykroyd, and Steven Seagal.

I was focusing on characters and while I was about to write Tigger I saw that he isnt the most well known Tigger, just the current one. Just like Peter Cullen isnt really known for Eyore, his voice isnt the most iconic for that character nor is it even the current one.
Kinda like how Joe Alaskey is "known" for Bugs Bunny but thats by far not the iconic voice actor for Bugs.

Love the figure but just sounds too weird for me hearing some japanese voice coming out of Optimus Prime. Would love for a western version to include the same amount of phrases but with Cullen.

Still an awesome career, regardless, which was more my point. ;)^

I might look into modifying the soundbox and use Cullen's voice clips from the Voice Changer helmets or the Power Bot figures Hasbro used to make.

Oh, look, he stopped- wait, false alarm, he's still going...

Not to rain down on the whole MB-11 10th Anniversary Optimus Prime parade, but here's a word of warning. Alfes2010 has reviewed the figure and warns that the mold deterioration first seen with the Hasbro Asia Ultimate Edition has worsened. Several parts have become unnecessarily tight, with the Buster gas tanks as the prime example.
