For those who cannot wait to see more from the upcoming Studio Series line, which features new toys of characters from all across the Transformers Live Action films, you are in luck. While we had our first really good look at the upcoming voyager Optimus Prime a few days ago, we now have an image of him in his packaging which gives us our best look at him yet. We see from this that it is without a doubt a new mold. This is number 05 in the series and is part of the first wave of voyager figures along with Starscream. The image was found on the Snakas blog.

The packaging also gives us some new info. Firstly, we see the generations logo. This may not mean that they are part of the "Generations" line per se, but more of an indicator as to the type of toy it is. That was previously done for the Age of Extinction film, where the toys were labelled as being "Generations" as well. While it might be confusing, it seems Hasbro deems it less confusing than their latest try at differentiating these toys with one steps and the like with their "Premier Edition" branding, which did indeed infer a comparison. So now it's back to "Generations" to let you now you can expect the same type of complexity.

The other bit of interest comes from the Takara logo on the box. This further solidifies the idea that, as with The Last Knight toyline, the Takara and Hasbro products will be identical for the most part, including the packaging (which Takara would then add a sticker to). This was originally hinted at by the lower Japanese prices we saw for this line compared to other Takara Transformers products. The prices for this line in Japan was the same for the Transformers: The Last Knight Toyline.

So seeing this trend of Takara and Hasbro releasing the very same products in both their markets, how do you feel? Does this further contribute to the notion that both companies truly feel the extra sales from collectors importing (either Japanese fans importing Hasbro or westerners importing Takara) toys from outside their market are not substantial compared to the savings of standardized toys and packaging? Or do both companies simply focus on their own markets without giving a thought to any activity happening outside it, be it beneficial or not?

Let us know your thoughts in the discussion!

That packaging also labels Optimus as specifically ROTF Optimus.

From what I can see the mold looks really pretty darn cool but the colour layout is off. Still very interested in seeing more and hey Toyhax will probably do a stickers set for fixing any flames and such like with the terrible basic colour layout of Hasbro's AoE Evasion Prime and TLK Prime.

Prime looks ok so far, were going to need better in hand pics to know for sure but most movie Prime toys are decent sometimes not accurate like the Movie 1 leader but they were still decent toys.

Crowbar looks like a good retool. I loved the designs of the Dreads and Wreckers. Now we just need Leadfoot and Hatchet in deluxe scale!


Deluxe Leadfoot already exists. I paid up the ass to get the original, but it appears they now have a quality KO that does the deed. It has the Target paint apps of the unreleased Hasbro version and the head painted silver which looks way better than the original (unpainted) which goes for over $300 now.

Im with you on Hatchet. Ive been using the small version as a stand in with berserker as Crowbar to have the trio.

I already give this Optimus toy props for trying a new transformation scheme.

That's what I'm referring to; the hand is just touching the phone (where the screenshot is placed in). Maybe D-Maximus is just joking around.

Oh, I see now. It's a pic of a pic. We all thought it was a pic of just the packaged figure.

Everything looks pretty good on this figure, but the chest is crap! The pecs are way too spread apart making it look like his chest his open. I'm already having doubts about this, so that's not great. :SICK:

The chest might not be transformed properly. That, or it's meant to show the Matrix of Leadership like Battle Blades did.

Another Optimus, another cheat. Granted MP Movie Prime and Powermaster were legit with the windshield chest, but so many designers are just cheating the chest piece, and that singlehandedly makes it a pass for me.

How do you know it's a cheat chest?

It looks like actual windows and panels to me.

In truck mode, the window area is blue.

How can you even tell? That photo has horrible lighting and is low quality overall and you can't even see what color the windows are.

The chest still does not look fake at all not compared to say this.



Edit: I thought you meant the actual windows I see you mean the window frames or whatever their called I can see what you mean but Optimus Prime always has the red chest in robot mode

Look at the robot cgi and then the actual truck






Anyways it could also be a prototype on the set and the actual in package figure is the actual figure color, or the red parts sit under the blue if that makes any sense.

To me, it looks like a cheat in the same way Evasion Prime had a cheat that looked like legit windows. It almost looks like there is middle hinge in his chest. Maybe the arms and windows fold into each other?

We have a long and detailed list of most (if not all) of the figures set to be released in the upcoming Transformers Movie Studio Series. This expansive list covers the UPC codes, the product codes, and names of the figures. Some of the characters listed are quite surprising, and some potentially are codenames for other characters, similar to the way the Last Knight toyline was run. This will really be an interesting line to follow, as it’s quite unprecedented for a Generations/Thrilling 30-style line based on movie figures. This is thanks to Mr. Chaos over at TFW2005.
