As part of the story about new Takara Tomy Transformers toys from their Legends line (covered here), the same image from Loopaza Megastore also includes several new Movie The Best figures - redecos of previously released Transformers figures in at least one of the two markets.

The list we have below includes the following:

MB-12 Autobot Jazz
MB-13 Bonecrusher
MB-14 Megatron
MB-15 Lockdown
MB-16 Jetfire
MB-17 Optimus Prime Revenge Version
MB-18 War Hammer Bumblebee
MB-19 Hound

This list brings emotions ranging from happy to sad to confusion....

Based on prices, what can we assume?
3500 Deluxe, 5000 Voyager, 8000 Leader? , 10,000 Leader, 15,000 Leader... +?

From there, what can we assume?

MB-12 Autobot Jazz 3500 - Deluxe. Movie 1 mold. Why not the vastly superior HA mold?? They did it for Soundwave!

MB-13 Bonecrusher 3500 - Deluxe. Movie 1 mold. Rare these days so it's a good choice.

MB-14 Megatron 8000 - Starting to get dicey. Looking at the previous MB figure prices, no Voyagers were priced this high, so I gotta assume Leader. And there's only 3 Megs in that size class. Won't be TLK, ROTF has had multiple releases, so I'm betting on it being Movie 1.

MB-15 Lockdown 3500 - Deluxe. Pretty unexciting.

MB-16 Jetfire 10,000 - ROTF Leader obviously. Interested to see the deco.

MB-17 Optimus Prime Revenge Version 15,000 - I'm at a loss for this one. The only way to justify that price point for me is if it were Leader Prime + Upgrade. Like Jetwing. But that was DOTM. And Buster Prime was DOTM too wasn't it?

MB-18 War Hammer Bumblebee 3500 - Deluxe something. Too many Bee molds for me to speculate which one.

MB-19 Hound 5000 - Voyager AOE? Again, why rerelease a mold (TLK) that's still on shelves?

MB-20 Nemesis Prime 8000 - Leader.... AOE or TLK molds in TLK Nemesis colors. Best guess.



Thoughts?

I believe Buster Prime was the first takara release of the rotf leader Prime, for their rotf line. Though I could be mistaken. It was the first time we saw the gas canisters turning into his guns. Makes sense for it to be ROTF mould for the compatibility with Jetfire.


If the megatron is a leader, then it will be movie 1. Has to be. And I will not be interested. Oh well.

I would guess the nemesis will be the tlk in nemesis colours, with the remoulding on the back pack. I imagine that version would gather more interest in owning than the AOE version.

Takara got the normal, non-Buster version of ROTF Prime before they made Buster.

I wish they released the Deluxe Soundwave Mercedes Benz mold in the best line. I got screwed with a Human Alliance Soundwave thinking it was the deluxe mold. I just keep him on display as a stand alone figure since he looks cool but scale-wise the mold sucks.

Nemesis will probably be a redeco of Caliber Optimus, and Hammer Bee is likely the new TLK mold.

I think the higher price tags are or leaders with major accessories.

Also confused by this choice.

That would make sense, but the ROTF one is so much more of a beloved design. And the ton of releases never stopped another ROTF Leader Prime, so it could go either way.

This could be to a Jetwing Leader prime made to resemble the end of the second film, hence the name Revenge. We never got a Jetwing Prime combo that was deco'd accurately (with black parts) so this could be it.

[quote]MB-19 Hound 5000 - Voyager AOE? Again, why rerelease a mold (TLK) that's still on shelves? [/quote]

This one is super confusing.

[quote]MB-20 Nemesis Prime 8000 - Leader.... AOE or TLK molds in TLK Nemesis colors. Best guess.[/quote]

I am thinking TLK Calibur Prime in Nemesis colours.

I dont think I will be getting any of these. The fun part of the first set was that many of them were elusive molds/decos. Many of these are far more recent and more easily obtained so I am a bit less excited. That jetfire deco is interesting but I hate that toy so much.

I noticed a lot of people are expecting re-uses of previous molds, I'm actually expecting whole new figures for this series, However, If they do re-use molds, I'm expecting them to re-use HA Jazz and Soundwave, because those were good figures. But I'm still hoping new molds all around.

Every release so far in this line has been repaints. That's why everyone is assuming these ones will be.

Because this line has been nothing but re-uses of previous molds.

I could see some of that down the line, but not in this particular series. Also if you like that HA Soundwave mold, this series has already re-released it :) Sold out in many places but another run coming out in the next few months http://www.thechosenprime.com/MB07Soundwave

War Hammer Bumblebee? That sounds awesome! probably the new TLK Bee with his hammer, which sounds great. I was just going to get one of the third party hammers for the Hasbro release, but if this Bee has a better deco I'll be very tempted to get it.

Well, unless it is a new Jazz, I won't worry about it. Mold isn't that good and I already have one.

Bonecrusher... may need to see the deco. He is one of my favorite movie cons, and though I already have him, I'd like to take a look see at him.

Megs is no interest. I have all the Megatron I need with his great TLK toys.

Lockdown... Been wanting him, kind of excited to see where this goes.

Jetfire: already have. Same with Prime. Same with Bee, though at least they appear to be finally doing one with the hammer.

Hound is confusing. no interest in Nemesis.

It occurred to me this whole time I read it as MP as in Masterpiece, not MB which is Movie best. :lol:

HA Soundwave is a AMAZING figure... displayed with other HA.

They really should have re-released the deluxe, unless they destroyed the mold for reasons. Also, how about a 3 pack collector set of the 3 DELUXE DOTM Wreckers? Because we got screwed out of deluxe Leadfoot as well.

I don't really see the logic in expecting TLK molds here, considering the two lines are running concurrently and Movie the Best is more of a specialty re-release line than anything else. That's just me I guess...

Well I hope they don't use the Age of Extinction Hound mold, at least. That was a super disappointing figure. I'm also just hoping this is a relatively easy way to pick up the wave 3 TLK deluxe Bee, and if we're even luckier he'll get a bit of extra paint.

Me neither. I'd expect any non current line to be there.


But TLK is very unlikely, as that would just double up on molds they are currently releasing already.

I'm guessing Megatron, and one of the Primes will likely be from AOE as well as Hound of course.

But Takara did rerelease Deluxe Soundwave. He was part of their AOE line called Movie Advanced.

AD-17 Darkside Soundwave. Not a movie accurate deco but interesting nonetheless. So how much on EbNNOOOOOOOOPE. #-o
