The upcoming Transformers The Last Knight Leader Class Dragonstorm is one of the figures people are most looking forward to in the last waves of the TLK toyline, and we now have a couple of videos that give a better look at the figure. One of them is an Asian-language full video review that shows off the packaging, the dragon mode, and the individual robots, and it tops off at just under an hour long.
The other video comes to us via YouTube channel Pancrazi,
and through a tip from Seibertronian Kotori_Sonoda. It's an English video detailing a major flaw in some of the Dragonstorm toys. It's unknown if it affects all figures, but it is definitely something to look out for when considering purchasing the Dragon duo-con. Check out both videos below!

Um, he didn't cut the tie holding the head in place. I don't have the toy in hand yet, so I could be wrong, but i'm going to assume that's why it broke.

First the Steelbane/Skullitron moulds floppiness and now this guy's fragile neck joints? What is it with Hasbro and faulty dragonforemrs recently?

Shouldn't break that easily but yeah the tie is still attached to the head before he starts pulling it out.

And Trypticon's dodgy legs?

Steelbane mold is an easy fix. I haven't got it yet (never seen it for sale) but my friend's sorted his out with some nail polish and it poses superbly even on one foot.

these dragonformers are having issues, I'm expected the simplified turbo changer dragonstorm to explode from the springs at this point

From what I've seen, I think it was broken before he opened it, which means the factory shipped a broken item.

Hey, :TAKARATOMY: , I think you fools should find new factories, because the ones you have contracted right now seem to have lazy QC departments.

I had this early because of ACG in HK and the neck on my one broke straight out of the box... I returned mine and I get the replacement next week, which I believe is the official release date.

let's hope it just a bad batch and not a design flaw or something. I bought a NECA Predator figure a couple years ago that broke apart in three places when removed from packaging, returned it to same company for replacement... which broke apart easily too. Then got refunded and tried a different company's stock and bought the same figure there and was completely fine. NECA mentioned the bad ones were likely left over stock from one of the factories they don't use anymore to to the low quality.

Would be interesting to see pictures of the damage so we can compare notes.

Might explain why when Hasbro was testing Trypticons they were coming up with no issues.

It's a bit like how Hasbro Transmetal Megatron's are more prone to breaking that the Takara ones are. the slight changes make a lot of differences.

Speaking of Manufacturing though - have we heard any more about what lines Hasbro plans to make in India - will it include any Transformers lines I wonder ? It did cross my mind they might make Micronauts toys there (if they ever actually get around to making some).

Thanks to our own Scotty P, we knew of the existence of a Deluxe Bumblebee variant with a movie accurate colour scheme in car mode (with the all black top) as seen in Transformers: The Last Knight. As with many toys though, variants are usually region specific, with particular different batches all sent to the same area. The Chromedome with the Takara head was never found outside the US for instance. So it was a fun surprise to see that this Bumblebee variant was found outside of the US. It has now been found in Montreal, Canada, which is where the photos below come from, at Walmart. If you are in another country, let us know if you too found this variant.

Um... Sorry, but what's the difference between this one and the TLK Bee I've had since a little before the movie came out? I've been looking at these pics and my bot and I'm just not seeing a difference.

No worries. What I find crazy is that Takara didnt even bother with this variant's more accurate paint apps either. This is their version, which is the same as the standard one:

So yeah, this variant is better than the takara version :D
