Lots of Transformers related Die Cast news coming out recently as, in addition to the G1-inspired figures we reported on yesterday, Japanese die cast company Tomica announced a couple new movie-based car models!
The two models take from Bumblebee's The Last Knight Camaro mode, and from Optimus Prime's Western Star mode from the same film. If you collect diecast, you might know of Tomica from their popular line of model Japanese cars, such as Nissan GTR's and Acura NSX's. The two transformers models are presumed to be 1:64 scale, (aka, the same scale as Hot Wheels and Matchbox cars) and are currently listed on Amazon Japan and Takara Tomy Mall for around $5.40! Check them out below, and tell us in the Energon Forums if you'll be picking these up instead of the similar Jada brand diecast!

Seibertron.com friend and concept artist Ken Christiansen has dropped us a line to let us know he's posted on his social media accounts some more toy concept art for the Transformers: The Last Knight toyline - specifically, the Infernocus set that was made exclusive to Toys R Us, which reused the Terrorcons molds with the addition of new torso bot Skulk, and a see through Quintessa non transforming character.

You can check both out below, including variants of the latter, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub discussion boards!

Concept art for the Skulk figure for the Toys R Us Infernocus Exclusive set, for the Transformers the Last Knight toyline. He's a mean looking one, nice change of pace from my regular Transformers work.

I love this set! I would have preferred the axe to the swords he came with, but it's still neat!

He turns into a lovely looking licensed Aston Martin and can fit TWO Titan Masters in the seats (thereby outdoing most Titan Returns figures at their own gimmick and doing it with a realistic alt-mode too).

I've had mine since last year and he's very nice and got some great detailing and such. Worth way more than that 10 bucks price so go snap him up while you can.


They just opened an Ollie's back in Mid-November this year. Up until then, I remembered Ollie's for advertising TR Trypticon - cheap. However, this Black Friday Ollie's ad, I saw a new find. TLK Premiere Deluxe Figures, for $6, and the picture was of Cogman! In my corner of southwestern PA, I saw no Cogman figures. Tons of TLK Wave 1 regular, and gimmick, figures stocked, and later, languishing on the pegs, along with the better-selling Transformers lines. So, I made it a point to run in there. TLK Drifts, Bumblebees, and Crosshairs were all well-represented, and I found an enormous volume of TLK Hot Rods (seriously thought about buying another for G1-esque repaint/kitbash). I even think I saw a couple Optimus Prime's, too. But, no Cogmans... :( When another collector expressed the same frustration, on Black Friday, at Ollie's, I said maybe they liked Cogman's more dynamic pose on his box art? Very disappointing...

As someone else who lives in south west PA, I feel your pain. But if it helps, the new Studio Series line is re-releasing Cogman with a new paint job here next year!

I don't know if he's been spotted yet but I found legion dragonstorm at 5 below in Indiana along with some titan masters I didn't have

As someone who quite likes legion class figures, this (and even more so the line before) was real disappointing. The molds were mostly from TF Prime and thus looked nothing like the actual movie characters (like Stinger being a KnockOut repaint, Berserker being a Breakdown repaint, Barricade being a very bland Prowl repaint, Grimlock being rippersnapper, etc etc). I did hear the Megatron one from TLK was, I heard, a new mold along with some others.
