Remember the Movie Trilogy line that was supposed to spin off of the Dark Of The Moon toyline? All those promised redecos and remolds that we saw at various panels, yet they never saw the light of day? Well, after nearly three years of waiting, Takara Tomy has made the existence of those figures, or at least some of them, possible.

Seibertron.com is proud to present our two newest Transformers galleries:

Movie Advanced AEON Exclusive Wheeljack and AD17 Darkside Soundwave

Wheeljack sports a G1 deco and a brand new head that looks like a mix of his G1 self and...the Matrix?? Sadly, all of the accessories have been stripped and it's just the figure, but at least the fans will finally get the figure they were hoping for.

Darkside Soundwave takes on a Soundblaster deco, and looks classy doing so. Again, still no accessories, but the figure rocks all on it's own. At first glance, it looks like Soundwave took a dip in a vat of ink, but the black does look good on him and the silver paint apps bring the rest of the look together to sweeten the deal.

You can click on the pictures below to be taken to each figure's full gallery. While you're there, check out our galleries of the original molds, DOTM Wheeljack/Que and DOTM Soundwave.

Of note is how this Wheeljack doesn't quite have the same deco as the unreleased Movie Trilogy Series version does, as that one's deco was only somewhat G1-inspired, while this one is more directly G1-inspired.

Hmmm.... it's great that they are releasing these figures again so that fans get another chance at picking them up.

I wonder if they'll also release Leadfoot. Now that was one I really wanted, but the prices on ebay were insane!!!

That is a WILD looking head sculpt for Wheeljack. :shock:

It needs to be on a different body though. That mold doesn't do it justice.

I wonder why they don't have weapons ?

It is time for another Takara Tomy campaign promotion. The twist this time is instead of Microns, the campaign items are Legendary Weapons (or trophies if you will) that Lockdown has collected aboard his ship. The campaign runs similar to past Takara Tomy campaigns. You buy 3,000 or more yen of Transformers in a certain store you get one of these weapons while supplies last. Here is the full rundown.

Optimus Prime Axe- redeco of Beast Hunters Dreadwing axe available at Toys 'R' Us Japan

Image

Tricera Mace- redeco of Beast Hunters Deluxe Windrazor axe availability to be determined

Image

Spino Hammer- redeco of Beast Hunters Deluxe Twinstrike available at EDION, Best Denki toy counter, Yamada Denki toy counter, and Yodobashi Camera and others.

Image

Ptera Spear- redeco of Transformers Prime Knock out spear available at Bic Camera, Joshin Kids Land and Kojima Co., Ltd. toy counter

Are they supposed to be the Dinobot's weapons? That's the feeling I'm getting from the names anyhow.

Well, I guess since deluxe Twinstrike and Windrazor never made it to shelves before the AOE tide, they have to get SOME use out of their molds. :roll:

Don't you guys remember the scene from AOE where Cade and Shane find that arsenal of weapons in Lockdown's ship? When you attach all of these weapons to Battle Command Optimus Prime's base, that's what these weapons are paying homage to.

Not too long ago we reported a sighting of the Hasbro One-Step Stinger at US retail, but Seibertron.com user chuckdawg1999 got his hands on the Takara Tomy Lost Age version, and share his video review of it - check it out below!

While many collectors turn their nose up at the various simplified figures released for Age Of Extinction, Takara/Tomy have really put in a lot of effort making these same figures interesting for everyone. With premium paint jobs and comically strange commercials to match the Lost Age line really stands out. Stinger makes for a fun desk toy while making one hope for a Deluxe version of the character

I have avoided all One-Step figures until now...I picked Stinger up because he's the only vehicle-accurate representation of the character released so far. I'm hoping for a Deluxe with the Pagani Huayra altmode!
