Some images popped up online for two upcoming Transformers Premium Finish lines. One based on generations figures and another based on movie figures. But the images were small and it wasn't clear what this was all about. But the images were small and it wasn't clear what this was all about. Well now Loopaza Megastore has posted more details on their Facebook page as well as comparison images showing the difference between these figures and what we already had. Optimus, for instance, has the deco seen in the WFC Netflix show with the cracks on his windshield.

We also see that the plan is to release one figure from each line per month starting in October 2021. While this initiative is started by Takara, they may be available through Hasbro Pulse or other venues in the west as previous Takara "exclusive" were.

We've received some details of the coming up Transformers Premium Finish (PF) Series. This will be the original Japanese series, by selective of characters from two popular series: "Studio Series" & "War for Cybertron". The PF will add original premium paint details to make it as close to the screen accurate as possible. The first two release will be SS Bumblebee from Bumblebee Movie & Optimus Prime from the Netflix WFC Trilogy. Premium Finish will start release in coming October and will have 2 characters release in each month until March 2022 which means total of 12 characters (6 each).

If I squint pass the GIANT WATERMARKS I can see some differences with the Optimus. Bee however, is just the same damn picture with lower contrast.

The best comparison is in Bee's head, they've added more paint for his eyes

All I want is for somebody to make VENOM, BARRAGE, RANSACK & CHOP SHOP. But they'd rather waste time with this kind of thing.

I wonder if they'll ever stop pushing Optimus Prime & Bumblebee on us. I wish they would stop trying to turn Optimus Prime & Bumblebee into Batman & Robin. They've been pushing Bumblebee hard since 2007, enough is enough already! :roll:

I've already been doing that with Kingdom. And with more price hikes coming....

It's the opposite for me, that Bee seems to have all the differences. Look at the lower arms and lower legs. The detail is all painted now, it looks really good.

Great comparison. Would DC ever stop pushing Batman on us? Don't think so.
But I don't see what the issue is. It means that even though we are comparing 35 year old characters to 80 year old ones, in the eyes of today's kids, both are as popular. That is an amazing achievement for the Transformers brand we love so much.

They are all replicating poses of the previous stock images so we can guess quite a bit of them along with that wheeljack. So far we have:

SS
1: Bee
2.
3. Ratchet
4: 07 Megatron
5:
6: Shockwave

WFC
1. Optimus
2. Megatron
3.
4.
5.
6. Wheeljack

Yeah, same here, the 'Bee looks like the one with the extra paint, added to his head, arms, face and ankles. Optimus looks like they just made his battle damage darker on his thighs, put some cracks on the windshield, and called it a day. Not seeing the huge differences on that one.

Gonna be shocked if movie Optimus isn't on that list somewhere. Which means the usual suspects are probably left for the remaining movie slot (Ironhide, Jazz or Starscream).

WFC could be more interesting, but there's a good chance Starscream takes one of those slots (because there's ALWAYS a seeker mold anymore), and probably a high chance of Soundwave or Shockwave taking one of the others. Really just a question of which popular Autobot(s) have a chance (Ironhide, Ratchet, 'Bee, Mirage, etc).

No movie Wheeljack yet, so I don't think they're going to just mirror casts between the two lines...

They push Bee because he sells, otherwise they wouldn't bother making something they know wouldn't sell.

EDIT: Someone found what each of the releases are going to be:

Studio Series:

1. VW Bumblebee

2. 1976 Camaro Bumblebee (This one is a little more ambiguous, I've seen someone claim it's BB Prime)

3. 07 Megatron

4. Ratchet

5. SS-32 Optimus Prime

6. Jetfire

WFC (All appear to be Siege except Wheeljack)

1. Optimus Prime

2. Megatron

3. Ultra Magnus

4. Soundwave

5. Springer

6. Wheeljack

Interested to see what 1976 Bee, Ratchet, and SS Prime will look like!

Bleh, going to be really disappointed if they put multiple 'Bees in the movie line. This is already looking kind of meh, at least give us unique characters or molds that are harder to obtain now.

Yeah, that's how I feel "movie the best" won many over. Not only were they the best painted toys yet but they were also toys some of us had trouble getting for a good price like Buster Prime and HA Soundwave.

Y’know... the more I look at Bee the better he looks. I just hate how fiddly that mold is. If I can find it for cheap, I guess why not.

The thing I miss curious about is, how much more fancy will 07 Megs be?? :shock: I have the SS one so far and think it's the bomb diggity! If anything this might get me to bite on some Siege figures I didn't pick up but even then, it'll have to be fancy or extra enough to warrent seeking them out

Wishful thinking would be Takara retooling the chest to be Movie 1 accurate since it was just ROTF Megatron's chest, but I doubt it.

If they'd did that, they'd have my money.
But I highly doubt they ever will.

No 3P upgrade kit either.

with prime, it looks like they made all the grey this yellowish cream color, added the darker cracks/damage to his thighs, and completely changed his window color from blue to lime green, something the threezero toy did.
