Thank to Takara Tomy and their official YouTube channel - but also the Facebook page for fan community Transformers Never Die for the mirroring of the clip out of region lock - we have a new promotional clip for the Japanese toy releases (though remember: Hasbro and Takara Tomy Transformers are identical since the unification of the brand in the past year) that will accompany the upcoming live-action Bumblebee Movie!

In the clip, embedded below from the two sources, we get a look at Power Charge Bumblebee, the Legendary Optimus Prime we last reported on here, and the Turbo Changers / Energon Igniters line (with Barricade, OP and BB) - but also the Studio Series line outside of the Bumblebee movie. Check it out below!

Pretty cool commercial. I liked the stopmotion they used ;)^ As for the toys, I might pick up a few Studio Series figures, but definitely that Legendary Optimus Prime :x

Still, no interest in the upscale aoe prime, might grab that bee though.

So I finally got the 3 Soundwave Minions set with BB. I agree I like the look of the new Buzzsaw. Initially I thought it was going to be exactly the same as the CW one, and planned on selling it. But now I want to keep it.

Problem is...Now I have 3 birds...all that look unique, but 2 have the same name. This could have been a simple fix...

1. Give it a Bluish color and call it Garboil
2. Give us the Autobot Blue Cassette (Eject)
3. Give it a new unique name...

I was looking through fiction and trying to find if there were any other bird cassettes that would fit it's look, and wasn't able to come up with anything... Sorry I know its a nitpick, but as unique as these guys are, I still don't want to have two Buzzsaw's, and naming one of them something different would go a long way to satisfying my desire to keep them both.

Why does Hasbro have to fix it for you, why not just come up with your own new name and/or headcanon for the CW Buzzsaw? Myself, I'm on the fence between calling TR Buzzsaw Sundor from before he switched sides (yellow is close enough to orange for me), or re-purposing the JG1 name Condor for TR Lazerbeak as a generic bird minion for Soundwave.

I do go the generic rout often with characters that have multiple figures, gives you plenty of cannon fodder for the battles. Don't kill off Buzzsaw when you could easily kill off Condor instead.

I was just looking for suggestions that's all. I was just disappointed. Hasbro had so many better options, rather than go the completely illogical route to give us a character we already have, but redecoed for no apparent reason.

Got it, but I actually do see some logic to including Buzzsaw again. I'm assuming for a selection like this, they wanted to use all 3 molds so Eject was out. I think they likely included a redeco of Buzzsaw since he was the "oldest" of the TR style tablets released back in CW as a way to allow anyone who jumped in during TR to obtain a version of him. Combine that with Howlback already being a fairly obscure character, I'm guessing they wanted to use as many familiar names as possible. We're probably pretty lucky they went with Howlback at all and not just a redecoed Ravage instead.

I got both Soundwave and the cassette pack, and I'm quite happy with them. Howlback's got a special spot in the collection with all the other lady-bots. And somehow, I'm liking the One-Step more than I should (btw "switchblade" is a misnomer, Hasbro: it's more like a butterfly knife :-B)

Just two nitpicks on either set: Doombox's knees are loose but he can still stand, and Buzzsaw's wheel assembly on the right wing droops a bit because the rivet's in too deep. Plus he's got a slight nick in roughly the same area, a trapped air bubble no doubt. O well. :)

As for what to do with CW Buzzsaw, repurpose him! It doesn't have to be a cassette, any yellow Decepticon bird will do. May I suggest 2010 Mini-Con Longview?

:EDIT: Anyone hoping for an Autobot Cassette set with Steeljaw out of Stripes, Eject and Sunder, possibly with the alternate head, if any?

Hmmm, that would be very Hasbro-like to milk one more use out of them. And considering the Siege versions of the cassettes just don't do it for me, I'd be all for another cassette pack further down the Bumblebee movie line.

Edit: Although to do that, they would almost have to re-release Blaster too, wouldn't they?

Hasbro is going all out on the upcoming Bumblebee movie with several stores organizing displays filled with a variety of Bumblebee merchandise. We have several examples below. The first comes from our own Jon 3.0 who found a display of mugs, water bottles, lunch boxes and more. You will see that there is merchandise for both Bumblebee in his movie look and his G1 look. That display was found at Ralph's a super market chain in California. This chain belongs to Kroger, so as you can expect, other Kroger stores also had massive displays. You will find an example of a Kroger display from Fort Wayne which was posted by Rookbartley on the TFW2005 forums. Finally, a picture has been circulating online of an in store display looking like an actual Volkswagen Beetle.

If you see cool displays like these, be sure to post them here.

WOW. I really, really hope that after this movie has come and gone, every one of that display in the bottom photo finds its way into the hands of some loving collector.

One of the few policies of Toys'R'Us that I don't miss was the mandate that all displays had to be destroyed rather than given away, starting between the first two Bay movies I believe. I know it was largely mandated by the toy companies, and fully understandable that they didn't want nobodies making a killing by flipping them on ebay for 100% profit, but what a lousy waste. When I think of all those glued-together Lego Sailbarges with the now-banned Slave Leia going directly to the nearest landfill...

I'd be happy with just Eject (To me Stripes WAS always Steeljaw but...). I'll happily take any additional reuse of those TR Tablet/Minion molds so long as they continue to be compatible with TR Blaster & Soundwave.

Also, I wonder if Hasbro realizes it's not BB that's really the selling point of this, or the other SS sets with the Dino Cassettes. It's the Cassettes themselves. I appreciate the $30 price point, because that is exactly what you would pay for the 3 legends class on their own. The BB is basically just dead weight. I mean my kids enjoy it enough, but if I didn't have them, or any other nieces/nephews, or friends with small children to give it to- I'd probably have literally thrown it in the garbage.

How about another, lighter blue, Ravage or Stripes as Raindance, and a red Rumble as Grand Slam? ;)

I actually rather like the Legion class type VW Bee figure I got for £5.25 in The Entertainer and been taking it about with me in my pocket to keep me distracted when I am bored in places.

Gave it the gun from a TFP Bee of same size

43817415_268712923781671_2474204624712135850_n.jpg


Took it with me to rehearsal of one of the three plays I'm currently doing (this be before I realised the back part could actually click down a bit seperating panel from behind the back of the head. I just didn't even assume it could do that. )
43914575_524942637967591_1193974707652965021_n.jpg


Fun little figure. I added a lil extra paint on the legs and hands and feet (and that panel behind the head to help define the head more in the first pics). He has knee articulation from transformation but it looks pretty bad when the knees are bent. Still overall it's a fun lil figure.

The Bumblebee movie line seem to have reached saturation around here, now both Target and Walmart have the full range. I got myself, you guessed it, Speed Series VW Bumblebee and Optimus Prime, to go with their RotF and DotM predecessors (via their TLK redecos). It yielded something interesting: Speed Series VW 'Bee is actually taller than the DotM Legion!

Yeah I noticed Bee being taller than TLK Megatron and Dragonstorm. But then I don't even think of these lil things having any logical scale. They're not the 'proper' represantation of the characters on my shelves. They're just fun simplistic minature TF figures to carry about in your pocket to take out and play about with when needing an easy distraction from tedious or anxious situations. :P

Maybe he's pondering the fact they're a lot closer in height than a Legends-style and Deluxe scale figure used to be. :P

And damn I just noticed tiny Bee has lot of bit of my yellow paint from this right knee. Likely cos I've carried him about with me loads in the past week or so. I shall top up that paint when I have time. :P

Thanks to a heads up from Seibertronian Leokearon, we have word that the Bumblebee movie toys have found their way to Ireland, and it appears that the Irish are getting a pretty good deal on the Speed Series figures! The Speed Series figures were found in Debenhams in Waterford, Ireland with 30% off, priced at €5.95 instead of €8.50. While the sighted figures did not include Hot Rod, we can assume he was present at some point in time.

The Bumblebee movie toys seem to have found their way to pretty much every corner of the world, and with people finding the Bee movie toys relatively easy, we hope you are finding your own figures you want from the line. Let us know your thoughts on this Irish deal below, and if you intend to pick up any Bumblebee movie figures and if you have, what you think of them!

Thanks to a Tweet from site sponsor TFsource, we have word that Blacklai's Toybase has acquired the very soon to be released BB-02 Legendary Optimus Prime figure and has provided us with some in-hand images!

This new figure is an entirely new mold taking cues from the Age of Extinction Evasion Mode Optimus Prime, but upsized and reworked to have some unique new touches to the design. The figure also sports a nice coat of chrome paint over several components. Included in the images are comparisons to the MPM-06 Bumblebee, the MP-10 Optimus Prime mold, and the Age of Extinction Evasion Mode Prime.

Blacklai notes that a lot of the joints on the figure are ratcheted, his hands open, the gun he comes with can store on his back, he has the option of a faceplate or no faceplate, and the gun even stores under the truck mode! He goes on to say that this is the best official version of the cab over movie Prime.

Check out a sample of images below, and you can click any one of the images to view the full gallery of shots. Let us know what you think of him in the comments section below!

That is nowhere near the original toy. Yes, it shares some deign cues as they originate from the same source material. But its bigger for one. The back and chest are in totally different places, and literally all of the limbsa are different. It’s not just an upsizing

That pic shows one of the things I hate about certain figures, where the hands are obscured, particularly on any side that restricts certain accessories. AoE Evasion Prime's hands are blocked from below so if I wanted to have him hold a long staffed weapon like an axe he can't do it. That new version has completely unblocked hands and it's a vast improvement. Also as a bonus has nicer looking panels on the underneath of the forearm too.

I don't think I'll get the new figure though cos price/size/doesn't really go with anything in my (now mostly Studio Series) Transformers collection but it's certainly an upgrade in a lot of ways.

Shark Tank style!! :APPLAUSE:

I actually do like this figure, and I'm hoping we get a version of it in the SS toyline. I mean, I didn't think we'd get Legends Super Ginrai and then *boom!* Siege on Cybertron set!

Hmm..he'd look pretty neat in the rusty colors to go with my AoE Armor Knight after seeing that shot with Calibur Optimus!
I'll wait for the inevitable Nemesis repaint ;)^

Can we call it a remaster?


Oh pure epicness on that possible inevitability...thanks for the mental implant carytheone! Considering I missed out on the Expo Advanced Nememsis Prime this would be an absolute good with all my other Nemesis'ises. :-P :VEHI:

You mean it's finally IN scale with Studio Series. :D I think it has to be fairly widely acknowledged at this point that not making the first SS Optimus a leader class was a blow to the whole "scale!" fortissimo of the line. The realization grows starker and starker with every release. You could argue it's close, but it's just not there. Optimus towers above the cohort in almost every scene, and my SS is pretty much equal with Ironhide in stature. Needed another inch or so.

I have to hope that this legendary at a minor masterpiece price point tries to somehow straddle the line between MP quality and appropriate SS-ish scale. That's what I tell myself anyway.

It is based on a smaller toy, but it is entirely new. They did not use a single existing molded part from the AOE Evasion Prime to make this.

It's like how Siege Sideswipe is basically MP Junior, or how several Unicron era toys were similar to classics designs (I think I got those 2 right). They share engineering and Transformations and such, but no part of the mold used for one was used to make the other.

Hence, entirely new mold.

This is one of those stements that should be proceeded by "technically" and a glasses push up. New physical mold, but basically the same toy.

Pretty much. but "Technically" still an entirely new mold
