A Dual Model Kit comes out for Optimus Prime whenever a movie gets released and Transformers: The Last Knight is no exception. Since the design didn't change from the previous film, the Dual Model kit being released is the same as the one for Age of Extinction with some deco changes and an added base. An image of both this kit and the previous issue can be found below with the rerelease being found on Weibo while the original comes from the Snakas Blog. The deco changes include more gold, blue, & red paint in places as well as a transparent reddish-orange shield.

I am trying to figure out why we need a Voyager Scorn :???: :???:

Loved Dinobots as a kid, never got them, so when AOE came out I got them all...well all the colorful Power Ranger-like ones anyways, none of the fancy G1 or movie inspired repaints.

Of course when I saw the movie I was a tad conflicted on why there were so many deluxe sized ones... Besides Grimlock ( I went Leader versus Voyager on that one), the only other voyager-sized one we got wasn't even in the movie :BANG_HEAD:

Before anyone bashes me for saying this...marketing, tooling, etc, etc... They're freaking Dinobots, so make them all Leader-sized, but make them Deluxe or Voyager level complexity. Transformers Prime: Beast Hunters upscaled some of their Legends to Deluxe size, I say upscale the Deluxe to Leader size.

What kid or collector wouldn't want a foot tall Dinobot?? :-D :-D

That's just me...So Voyager Scorn...meh.

I agree with this but grimlock is bigger than the others so him being leader and the others voyager makes sense. Scales for the movie toys have been weird since ROTF. I do like the idea of upscaling the deluxe though that's a solid idea. In saying that the new mould scorn is much better than the deluxe especially that Dino mode. I'm curious what warranted him getting a bigger toy. Perhaps he's the red knight we see with merlin and he'll play a big part in the last knight.

Someone on my whatsapp group just shared these. This seems to be a new leader class optimus prime, which basically a retooled AOE version where his backpack can come off and transform into his shield.

Cool that's based on the Armor Knight retool rather than the standard AoE release isn't it? Why they didn't do that for the TLK Leader release? Might have made the price increase feel a bit more justified.

this one seems to be takara release. So chance are, takara skipped that shadow spark version and goes with this, while hasbro sticks with shadow spark and not releasing this version for US market.

Shadow Spark isn't being released in the U.S. market either. It's a Hasbro Asia exclusive.

In a new turn for the books, we have UK first sighting of a main line Transformers figures, from the The Last Knight toyline - and it's none other than Leader class Megatron himself! Courtesy of TFW2005 user timelord10, the figure is reported to have been seen in Staffordshire's Toymaster, for £54.99 ($70 USD). Check it out below, along with some size comparisons and in-hand images!

Remember to use the Sightings Database to help out fellow collectors, and happy hunting - wherever you are in the world.

My local Toymaster in Staffordshire had him on the shelves at the weekend, along with wave-mate Leader Prime. In past experience this store gets stuff in 2-3 weeks ahead of other chain retailers (I bought Titans Return Galvatron last summer and didn't see him in Toys'R'Us for another month).

So I watched Baltmatrix's review of steelbane, and damn, it's terrible. A shame too, as it was one of the only deluxes that I was actually looking forward too. They made zero effort to hide any of the robot kibble, and it's a flimsy, poorly painted, loose jointed mess.

You'd think, since these movies make billions of dollars, they would try and make a decent toyline to go along with it, but no. We have an extremely small, low quality line that fails on simple things such as QC. (before some triggered fangirl attacks me for saying the line isn't good, I actually do like some portions, namely squeaks and the new voyagers, but that's undermined by the poor quality of the rest of the line for me)

Spiffy, but also looks a bit weirder than the Toy Fair images when it was shown off there. Still... I'll reserve judgement for when I get it in hand. Wondering when the ETA on the Voyager Megatron and Hound though with this news in mind. I know the Press Release said to expect the leaders in Fall while the Voyagers in the summer. I know last time with AoE I found Galvatron in July/August versus the expected June at TRU here in Ohio.

And if you think the quality is bad on TFs you should really look at the lackluster offerings made by Hasbro for the Jurassic World series, they totally stink and look dollar store cheap. The stuff they put into their own properties is by far better than the stuff that isn't in their specific creative property.

That Megatron does look gorgeous. I'm still gonna wait for the Voyager which I hope should be appearing soon. Bloody loving this line. Still tinkering with Sqweeks and Barricade on my desk here and still keenly waiting for reprolabels for Voyager Prime's flames.

This looks really good.

I've been a bit wary of the toys after pretty much the entire AOE and some of the DOTM lines, but this looks really good. It actually makes me like the design of Megatron in the film, too. Maybe it's the Fusion Cannon on his arm and the sick sword, but I dunno.

Umm... the article sounds like that Megatron is the first last knight toy found in the UK. It's the first leader class, I believe, but deluxe and voyager have been out a while. Just nitpicking. lol.


I used some clubpoints and picked up Prime for 'normal' voyager price. He's a really nice figure, well worth having. Knees don't have a lot of bend in them but overall, he's a good solid figure with a satisfying transformation.


Tried to do a headswap with an Evasion Prime to give him his mouth face, but the balljoints are different sizes.

I wouldn't base my opinion entirely on Balt's review. He tends to focus on the negatives of a figure.

I see it like this:

Baltmatrix - wines about everything wrong.
Emgo - fangirls about everything right.
Peaugh - unbiased, but mumbles and runs off topic. (Best if you are just watching one)
Thew - fun entertainment, three waves late (personal favorite)
Optibotimus - in love with his own voice, will do a sixteen minute review on a repainted legion figure and then mistransform it.

Addition to Peaugh: Has issues keeping things in view of the camera.


I do subscribe to him on Youtube but the only one i actively follow is Thew, because he's very entertaining.

His robot mode looks great and loose joints can easily be tightened and poor paint can be added to with some model paint. I'll buy him in a sale with those points in mind.

He doesn't have bad paint, the reviews I've seen showed an impressive amount of good paint.

Vangelus - probably the best one, but will be at least 6 months later unless it's Top Spin.


I stopped watching Baltmatrix once he just started to not give a crap, and gets many many things wrong about figures and generally has no idea about a figure he's reviewing.

Peaugh is okay, he's neutral but will miss some key points about some figures, and will just ham fist many of them and yes will do things out of the view of the camera.

I really do like Emgo even if he does fangirl about the positives. He'll still point out the issues he has with the figures, he just won't rant or get all bent out of shape about them. And generally is pretty timely with the reviews. He also has a sense of humor I can relate to.

Vange1us is indeed the best, but he takes ages to get to any figures. Though his reviews are really good, and in-depth.


Optibotimus, can get on my nerves real easily. I try to avoid him, unless I have no other choice. But many times he just won't care about the figure he's reviewing and that can get annoying.

I guess I'll have to give Thew a shot


I generally go for a combination of Peaugh, Emgo and Vangelus when possible.

Yep I tend to go with peaugh and thew, and vangelus if he puts any videos out.

Emgo was fun the first few times but he reuses the same jokes in every review. It gets annoying after a while.

Emgo I find cringeworthy to be honest. I just can't watch him.

Optibotimus much the same, I just...I dunno, man. He takes way too long to review simple figures and doesn't even do that good a job on them.

Peaugh is OK but very dull on occasion. Not terrible though.

Baltmatrix overuses the word "weird" and hamhands figures whilst blaming it on the toy. On the plus side he does review old obscure stuff and he is honest.

BensCollectibles is overly positive even with total crap. I have heard he's going through a real rough spot though so I find it hard to hate on him.

Vangelus I have no issues with. Well edited, short, to the point and entertaining.

Thew is the god of reviews. Most reviewers I'll only watch the ones I'm interested in. Thew though I'll watch them all. He's just so damn funny.

Bobby Skullface takes his time but he's very in-depth, quite professional and brutally honest. My one gripe with him is his obsession with everything being slathered in paint- and I say that as a paintoholic myself.


Anyway, Steelbane. The robot mode looks beastly. The dragon/wyvern mode is...well it's OK, hard to tell because Baltmatrix did a terrible job transforming him. The paint, I can see what they were attempting but it looks kinda awful. The QC is inexcusable. Like, yes you can fix it with floor polish but for £24 you shouldn't have to.

So yeah. Good engineering, rubbish paint, absolutely garbage QC. I'll pick him up if I have money to burn or he goes on clearance. At the very least I might be able to salvage him with the Airbrush of Power.

*Reads previous posts* Uh huh, I see where I rank. For the record, EVERY review of Steelbane has said the figure is way too floppy out of the box. Yes, that can be fixed, but in 2017 should we have to do that with a new figure?

Ouch... Sorry Chuck. To be fair, we didn't have many nice things to say, so maybe it's for the best we left you out. ;)

Check out the videos below and tell us what you think of the cute little guys in the energon pub!








I am so impressed by wave two of the legion class guys. I only hope they do a better Optimus legion figure to match Megatron. Then again, probably won't happen, which is sad, but I can only hope! :(

Wow those guys are way better than expected, I'll have to add these to my must haves for this line (the others being Deluxe Barricade and Nitro).

That Legion class looks surprisingly nice and reminds me of the TF: Prime Cyberverse Legion Megatron in a lot of respects. Usually they look wonky, but this looks very nice.

Kapow have wave 2 voyagers and deluxes listed as in stock now. Has wave 2 been out anywhere else? Or have they secured a lucky early release?

Wave 2 Deluxes been out for a while. Haven't seen voyagers yet or else I'd have Megatron standing on my shelf by now. Strange that site lists Hound as £3 off but not the same deal on Megs.

edit: Ordered me Voyager Megatron and also Titans Bumblebee (mainly cos that one was price reduced and I felt like having a look at it) Paid for DPD delivery for Friday. Still cheaper going all the way to Cambridge just to find they ain't got stuff in yet.

Well, like someone else said, customers shouldn't have to deal with all of these problems, especially considering these things are now more expensive than ever. Yes the joints are fixable, but isn't that what QC is for to begin with? And no, no one should have to repaint their figures unless they really want to.

Have to agree though, Balt can be a little petty with his criticisms. But honestly, I'd rather have an overly skeptical reviewer than an over positive one. And his comments on the alt-mode still stand. It is trash. The head looks... bizarre, to say the least, and kinda ugly. The robot feet stick out like a sore thumb, and it all essentially looks like a robot broke its back, swung its legs around, and did the splits. The robot mode is nice though, despite the paint.

I'm not sure if this is an actual different version of Megatron. If anything, it's just the regular Takara version (which itself may or may not differ slightly from the Hasbro release).

We are working on fixing the article to make it less confusing in that regard. Thanks for your understanding.

Just picked up voyager Optimus, my first figure of the line not counting TTCs. He's definitely going to need some paint, I may go for the reprolabels for the flames. Still looks like a fun figure, he'll probably scale pretty well with deluxe Lockdown.

Also, we got our first non-render images of the new deluxe Bumblebee in that enterprise commercial. He's horribly mistransformed, and he's missing a few paint apps that the render had, but that's nothing a little silver paint and instructions will fix. Still can't wait to get it!

As a few Seibertronians nicely pointed out, the Entreprise commercial we posted earlier featured our very first look at the actual finished new Bumblebee toy in robot mode. While the first wave of Premier Edition The Last Knight toys had a redeco of an old mold, there will be a new mold for Bumblebee for this movie and this is our best look at it yet. We previously had CG renders, which don't always give us the best idea of what to expect, and we only saw the car mode at Toyfair (which was painted and not the finished toy). While it is mistransformed, we do get to see how the paint applications will be in robot mode. As you can tell, it is a very different looking robot mode than the deluxe we got in wave one, whos chest was not made of the toy<s car parts, unlike this one. Hopefully we see more of this highly anticipated toy soon!
