In our coverage of the events from Tokyo Comic Con 2017, we included images of the main stage with the Takara Tomy promotional celebration of Transformers: The Last Knight, with its home release hitting Japanese retail next week - as you can see here, the stage hosted both comedian Junichi Davidson (wearing the G1 art t-shirt) and music artist Okazaki Taiiku / Physical Education.

The latter was apparently involved in launching his latest single, a collaboration between the artist and the Transformers franchise, titled Emblem. This is not the first song connected to the movie, as Torches received both the Chinese release treatment with a cover by Zhang Jie and the original version in the trailer from X Ambassadors, as well as Steve Jablonsky and Celldweller working on the score. The track, which you can find on iTunes here, or check out a sample below, is closer to the style of the latter as you'll see - give it a listen!

Neat how he worked the English phrase "Freedom is the right sentient beings" into the song.

It's been just under a month since the last batch of Transformers: The Last Knight concept art, and now we have a few more concept images for the film to share, this time from artists James Paick and Wesley Burt. Shared by Paick on his Instagram account is an image of "Cybertron Vines", seemingly attached to and invading Earth. This is in contrast to the final film, which featured Cybertron crashing to Earth in chunks, but no kind of merging between the two planets.

Burt, meanwhile, has shared two images through his Twitter account. The first is an early concept for Barricade's appearance in The Last Knight, hewing much closer to his appearance in previous films with iconic character features like his long arms and insectoid face. (An animated version of the Barricade concept can be found on Burt's Instagram by following this link.) The second picture is another rough idea for Daytrader (simply called "Trader" here), appearing much thinner and far less similar to Hound in body-type, as well as sporting long "hair", goggles and a bandanna.

Check out the images below, and share any thoughts you may have in the Energon Pub Forums! It seems like concept art for The Last Knight is showing no signs of stopping either, so keep your optics tuned to Seibertron.com for any more Transformers news - movie-related or otherwise - that comes around!

Now that's a proper Barricade update! I like that way more than the one we actually got.

Head's way to small on that Barricade it's otherwise a great design, not sure if it would have looked good on the big screen though.

Anyways the more important news to me is the fact we now have an actual Barricade cgi render from movie 1!

No those promotional pictures of the movie one cast like this one are not actual movie cgi renders.

Eh, that Barricade concept's alright though I don't like that spoiler sticking out the back so high in robot form unless there's a practical reason as to why he hasn't broken it down into parts to fold away. i didn't like TLK Barricade at first cos he seemed too 'human' in proportions but I'm kinda used it now. Hell I kinda wish he could just be both. Like the TLK form is his calm patrol bot form and the more alien one there is when he gets pissed off and ready to 'interrogate' the hell out of someone with a vicious beatdown.

I think that's just because he's hunched over.

I think I would've liked this version of Daytrader a lot more than what we actually got.

you know, i would prefer that barricade much more than the one we actually got.

That barricade is based on the S197 II Mustang, which either means this concept is a bit older or they decided to scrap and remake the design when the S550 became Barricade’s new alt Mode. As much as I like sleek new barricade I woulda preferred if they just took his new chest and arms and slapped it on that swole Barricade concept though.

I also like this concept Barricade :CON: over the one actually used in TLK. I think if they would've used it there would have been more of a connection to the character. In my opinion they should have at least use the head design of the concept, because if his was not named in the movie, would anyone have guessed that he was Barricade, or just think he was some random new Con. :-?
I did still enjoy him in the film, and yes The Last Knight design for him did grow on me as well.

For those of you who follow the wider entertainment world, you'll be aware of this being awards season - and the Oscars are up soon (March 4, 2018) - and that movie companies and productions are gearing up for the consideration of the industry and the Academy. In light of that, Paramount has made available 'For Your [ours too] Consideration' the full score by Steve Jablonsky from the 2017 live-action movie Transformers: The Last Knight, for free, from their website!

If you already had a copy from the previous retail release, you may spot some differences between that and this version, with some the tracks not corresponding in the two copies, but rather this current release being the exact score used in the movie itself - as you can see already from the track listings. Take a listen, and join the discussion in the Energon Pub!
