That's to Takara Tomy's Shogo Hasui and TF Yuki we have in-hand images of Transformers: Lost Age's AD-01 Leader Class Optimus Prime and AD-03 Voyager Class Grimlock. Like most of their releases these feature alternate decos compared to their Hasbro counterparts. Check out the images mirrored below:

After having fiddled with Scorn for a while it's safe to say that he's one of the best figures in this initial lineup and is legitimately a great figure on his own merits.

In beast mode he has nothing on him that suggests his robot mode. Sure, one side of his torso is obviously a robot mode chest but that's more down to my own presumptions and not a flaw in the design. His arm is perfectly integrated into his beast mode head (as a bonus this means the beast mode can look side to side in a very sinister fashion). With the exception of the tail which is just one big chunk he's got all the right posability in this mode.

The transformation isn't about to puzzle anyone (though if you're the type who doesn't use instructions you might encounter a few "oh, I never realised that could peg in there" moments) but it's just involved enough to be interesting. In robot mode he's fantastic too. The "black knight" head design won't be to everyone's taste but I love how stand-offish and menacing it makes him look. His sword clips smoothly into his tail and his back sail, now in the form of huge, spiky shoulder fins looks great. Again my only concern is lack of flexibility on his tail arm but in this mode at least it's a huge pointy lance.

Can anything be done for Scorn's super tiny knee joints? (the black connecting part)

for the amount of money we're paying for hasbro's leader prime.. it should've looked like this.. it sucks that takara understands the brand better than hasbro does.

They're actually double-jointed so in robot mode his "real" knee is at the top of his red boot section while the visible part acts as the lower half of his thigh (which admittedly is tiny, but works with the knight in armour appearance.

I'm getting a Heavy from Team Fortress 2 vibe from Hound which is awesome, but Galvatron is covered in lazy grey (good I hate Galvatron, more reason to hate him). Hound is now a must buy, if only to stand him around yelling CRY SOME MORE!

That describes me so well, I am glad to know I am not the only one out there to think that so many times.

You might be alone on that. We loves us some repaints of figures that came out 15 years ago.

Top row: Revenge Optimus Prime (aka Battle Blades), Battle Blade Bumblebee Leader Optimus Prime, Voyager Grimlock, Evasion Mode Optimus Prime, Devastator

Middle Row: Scorn, High Octane Bumblebee, Crosshairs, Dinobot Slug

Bottom Row: Jolt, Ratchet, Protoform Optimus Prime, Starscream, Dispensor.

In short, AD01 though AD15. And may I say, putting Battle Blade Bumblebee in a Voyager box is a big cheat. He almost costs as much as a Voyager in yen!

If I were a wealthy man that Optimus would be mine :x Oh well, I probably will wait for a sale and get the american version at a fraction of the cost. It doesn't seem like alot of people like the toy, but from the moment I saw it I liked it.

Sorry if I will sound ignorant, but I noticed that both AD 26 Bumblbee and AD 27 Lockdown have the same blacked out shape.

Does this indicate that they are the same mold? Or is it just there as a stock preorder pick before being revealed fully?

It's the latter.
Yeah, Takara always picks one silhouette to represent every unseen toy. Oftentimes, it's a Bumblebee silhouette they pick.

So, no, neither Lockdown nor any future Dinobot figure are a Bumblebee mold.
