The fandom is currently puzzled over the new reveal from Takara Tomy of an Evasion Mode Optimus Prime toy for their upcoming Transformers Bumblebee Movie toyline. How different is it from the previous mold? How much of a retool is it, along with it being an upscale? Well, from certain angles, the changes seem minimal, but at others, as you will see, it might be a completely new mold sharing some transformation steps.

By comparing to images of the Age of Extinction toy, you will notice that everything related to the arms is completely different. The shoulder armour is made of individual pieces, giving further proof that this does have a parts count more akin to a leader class toy. The forearms are completely different too and none of the details match.

Another huge difference, where it seems the transformation itself differs, is when we look at the back. Not only does the back of the top half have different pieces, but in the legs we can see that instead of him having two wheels at his calves, he has two wheels near his hips. Even the neck connection is different. So, judging by all this, it is far more likely that this is a new mold using some tricks and design cues of the first toy, like the foot transformation.

These new photos come to us from the Toyswalker facebook page.

Now that is weird, it looks awesome, but still...weird. If hasbro were to bring this over, how would they advertise it?

Whats weird is that Takara and Hasbro both share the studio series line, so if it would be studio series, why wouldnt Takara release it through taht instead of their own BUmblebee movie line?

I am thinking if Hasbro releases it, it would be an exclusive, like the amazon stuff we saw. Target has its own BB exclusive toys, this could be amazon's.

It might be me but this figure reminds me of the Wei Jiang Masterpice KO of Evasion prime. Particularly the wheels, note how, like WJ, one of the rear wheels clearly rotates around the knee, giving prime 2 wheels at the hips and one at the ankle, like trilogy prime.

Finding that Optimus in store, I'd buy it. But if I have to just order it online, it's an easy pass. For me, such a figure would be an impulse of the moment purchase only.

ugh i still kinda want it even though it's too big.

Funny that some folk are complaining that with all those changes it's STILL only got one truck mode smokestack. :P

Not sure why the feet are grey/white inside. Serves no purpose in robot mode and makes the feet rather obvious in truck mode.

Because normally, a truck barely have anything on the back. And the little there is is either bare metal or unpainted. So I guess that's what they are going for.

Japan has one of its biggest toys shows happening right now, Wonderfest Summer, and while we had some juicy reveals for you MP fans, the Takara releases of the toys tying in with the Bumblebee film were also on display. This includes the Studio Series of course, since the more collector oriented toys for the film will also be released in the Stdio Series line in Japan. There is one exception that that is the puzzling but awesome new Evasion Mode Optimus Prime toy that seems Takara exclusive at the moment. Its proper name is Legendary Optimus Prime and while previous images revealed it to be a new mold, different from the previous release, other images show it to be bigger than the original release as well. We included an image of the previous Evasion Mode Optimus toy next to Masterpiece Cheetor as reference. The Takara display at Wonderfest does not help us more with the scale though, since the toys he is shown next to are the big gimmicky Bumblebee movie toy, who's scale is still not assessed, and a much elevated Movie Masterpiece Ironhide. However, it was stated on Twitter that "legenday Optimus prime is humongous after all" so that should help clarify things. You can see that specific tweet here along with the images that we posted below, which also partly come from Dengeki Hobby.

Well, it seems that the large gimmicky bumblebee and the legendary optimus prime have similar packaging, which, to me, implies that we might get an American release of him in the same class as that bumblebee figure.

After all the display images from Takara Tomy's Transformers booth at Wonderfest 2018 in Japan, rolled out in the past couple of hours on our front page, too, we now also have official images of the majority of the new figures - if you're in for the Bumblebee Movie above all others, that is, with a touch of Studio Series and Movie Masterpiece!

Mirrored from the Dengeki Hobby site, below you can find images of the Power Charge Bumblebee, the newly revealed Legendary Optimus Prime from the movie's line, from a variety of angles, and sporting MP-10's trailer, plus Studio Series Volkswagen Bumblebee we saw revealed at San Diego Comic Con 2018, along with its line-mates KSI Sentry and the tattooed Starscream. Check it all out below, including the official Volkswagen license for the beetle car modes, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub!

It is a perfect deformation figure of Bumblebee popular character of Autobot appearing in the new movie "Bumblebee". It is Bumblebee which I mimicked as a yellow Camaro in the movie so far, but in this movie I mimic it as a yellow Volkswagen and it is active. It is possible to wear a battle mask of the head, withdraw weapons from the left arm, different sounds are activated in the vehicle mode and robot mode, and the gimmick of the front light is also carried.

Release date: Scheduled to be released in the fall of 2018
Price: TBD
Publisher: Takara Tomy

This is also a perfect deformation figure of Optimus Prime of the new movie "Bumblebee". Vehicle mode is as you can see! If it is a transformer fan influenced by the first animation, it will take in the hand without hesitation, a nostalgic "box type" tractor head. Transform from robot mode to vehicle mode! The whole body is fully movable in robot mode. You can also reproduce the state of the battle mask on and off.
* Containers that are towing in the vehicle mode are those of the MP-10 Convoy. Actual product is not included.


DATA

Release date: Scheduled to be released in the fall of 2018
Price: 6,800 yen (excluding tax)
Content of commodity: main body × 1, ion blaster × 1

The latest work of the "Studio Series" which transforms the transformers who appeared in the movies into a unified scale. It is a perfect deformation figure of Bumblebee appearing in a new movie "Bumblebee". Not only the deformation of the robot mode from the vehicle mode, but also the head at the time of attaching the battle mask can be reproduced.


DATA

Release date: Scheduled to be released in the fall of 2018
Price: 2,800 yen (excluding tax)
Product Details: Body × 1, Stinger Sword × 1, Stinger Blaster × 1, Battle Mask × 1

This product is also a newcomer of the "Studio Series"! Vehicle mode is Italian super car, Pagani. It is a perfect deformation figure of mass production type transformer, KS Eye Warrior, which appeared in the fourth movie "Transformer / Lost Age".

The star scream of Decepticon, who fought with Autobots as Megatron's right arm, participated in a splendid "studio series" of both vehicle mode and robot, both proportions! Not only alien tattoos applied to the whole body, marks of foreheads in robot mode are also reproduced.

Release date: Scheduled to be released in the fall of 2018
Price: TBD

It is a perfect deformation figure of Ironhide in charge of weapons of Autobot who appeared from the first movie "Transformers". It completely deforms to the robot mode from the vehicle mode (pickup truck made by US GMC company). The appearance and expression of robot mode is the image itself in the play. The brave appearance of that iron idea is revived in the "Masterpiece Movie Series".

That big Bug Bee is a MUST WANT for me. Skipping on MP Ironhide and I'd take the deluxe Bug Bee only when on sale. As for the Optimus, it could be a "must buy" but only if I can find it live in store.

It's amazing how different the marketing is between the two on the large Bee. Hasbro is all, "check out all the things this figure can do. The lights, the sounds, the play value! It's also not bad looking, but listen to those movie sounds!" while Takara Tomy is like, "Check out how detailed this figure is! It's big and has pop out weapons and a battle mask! Oh, and it has light sand sounds or something too, but just look at how cool it is!"

My interests in that Big Bee was FIRST how it look. The think look fantastic. Even better than the deluxe. And I don't give a crap about the innacuracy of the center part of the chest. That's what the MP will be for.

The second reason why I want this be the most are indeed all the gimmicks. It will go very well with my Battle Ops bumblebee and my Weaponiser Prime talking black Bee.

Good indication of intended target audiences, I suppose!

Hm I kinda wish the Studio Bee's lower legs were as compact and tidy as those on the large gimmick figure but overall it looks great for the size. I also kinda wish the CGI Bee model had the door-wings the toys have cos I find him a bit odd looking the trailer without them. Movie Bee had the wings for so long that it's strange when they're gone.

The funny thing here is that the big Bee, to me at least, appears to be better than the SS one, despite being a larger, supposedly gimmick toy. It looks great!

I'm curious how much engineering if much at all the two different size Bumblebees share.
