Also courtesy of the Loopaza Mega Store page on Facebook, we have some new images of the Takara Tomy Transformers Studio Series line - to all effects and purposes identical to the Hasbro release, after the brand unification for decos and tooling - featuring figures seen at both Toy Fair 2018 and Wonderfest such as Optimus Prime, Grimlock, Blackout, Bumblebee, Starscream, Crowbar, Ratchet, Stinger.

As a bonus, we also have features on Movie Masterpiece MPM-5 Barricade (whose thread is here), MP-17+ Anime Version Prowl, discussed here, and the Terrorcons plus their combined form Abominus over from Power of the Primes (see here). Check it all out below, and join the relevant discussions in the Energon Pub!

That black rectangle all along Optimus' chest makes me vomit. The worst part is that it looks like a pretty cool transformation.

Big thanks to TF Fan Phil who reached out to us with some pretty awesome news. He found the Studio Series figures while doing his groceries:

Found the Studio Series Deluxes last night at Dillons Marketplace (part of the Kroger chain) in Derby, Kansas.


He says there were 2 of each deluxe, which makes sense in a case of 8. These were priced at $24.99 USD. While it appeared that these would only be coming to retail in April, this confirms that these deluxes are ready to ship to retailers and that Hasbro has already shipped some out.

The ones found at Dillons Marketplace were Ratchet, Stinger, Bumblebee, Crowbar, and you can see in hand images of those toys here if you are thinking of picking them up. Also, for those unaware, the Takara version of this line will have the exact same toys, as you can see here, so fans don't need to wait for their releases this time.

If you find them, let us know in our sightings section and sightings forum!

Ill grab stinger and the dread. Totally skipping the ratchet and bee. It seems they said f**k scale with this line, at least with ratchet. That ambulance is bigger than an H2 hummer but some idiot at hasbro thought it was the same size as a camaro.

Relax, I'm willing to bet that is just the store chain jacking the price.

Dillon's / Kroger do in fact Jack up prices, 25 dollars is how much they charge for most Deluxes, so the walmart/target prices of these Figures will most likely be 20/22.

It is the chain, trust me. Dillon's is a grocery store like Albertson's, Tom Thumb, and of course Kroger. Surprised they appeared there of all places, but that may be a store not paying attention to the 4/20 street date.

Regular source of toy news NOTRAB, user on the Chinese social media platform Weibo, has shared some new in hand images of a Studio Series figure that many have been quite keen on: the new Leader class Age of Extinction-debuting Dinobot leader Grimlock!

Check out the images below, featuring Grimlock in both Tyrannosaurus Rex (liberally inspired by) and robot modes, plus some poses, including a very static one with the background that is part of the line's packaging. Is this movieverse design something that interests you at all? Will you picking one up? Make sure to let us know in the Energon Pub discussion forums, and join the conversation!

Sweet Solus Prime.......THIS is what movie Grimlock's Leader Class toy should have been from the start. It's like it stepped right off the screen. While not 100% perfectly proportioned, it's quantum leaps ahead of what the original toy was.

While I'm no movie fan this thing does look very nice. I'll definitely be picking him up.

Just a guess, but I think it will have a similar transformation to Last Knight Scorn.

I posted above that some of them are officially available to preorder from Amazon Japan, although Grimlock is only available via a private seller for silly money. Amazon Japan exports toys outside Japan, btw.
