Fellow Seibertronian Rainmaker has a double feature news piece today, directly from Canberra, Australia. After finding both the Mission to Cybertron Megatron and Skullitron exclusives, they proceeded to prepare a full pictorial review of the latter, newer figure with the different head sculpt to regular retail release - check it all out below!

I spotted the TLK MtC Deluxe figures Megatron and Skullitron in a Toys R Us in Canberra. They were $30, $5 less than the Premier ones which are $35. But the Premier ones are on a sale right now ($5 off) so the MtC ones might be as well.

Rainmaker wrote:Okay, here it is.

First off, the robot mode. The robot mode is okay, the headsculpt is great. It has decent articulation. You can put it in some cool poses but some you need to use the transformation joints. Also, if you tried hard enough I'm pretty sure it could duel wield it's sword. The only thing letting it down is how the beast kibble usually gets in the way and the chest keeps coming undone, making him annoying to play with because his chest goes all floppy. His knee articulation is also hindered by the beast kibble, but you can fix that by pulling the tail and head out of his legs.

Robot Mode - 6/10

Next, the transformation. I hate the transformation, things get in the way and things pop off a lot while transforming. The transformation is unique though, but because of that the beast mode suffers. The legs split to become the dragon tail and head, because of this the head and tail are uneven.

Transformation - 2/10

Finally, the beast mode. The beast mode is flimsy, it doesn't have much articulation and barely counts as a dragon. I know it's supposed to be Cybertronian but there's too much robot kibble. A top-down view of the dragon makes it look horrendous. The uneven tail and head also kills it for me, and the poorly molded hind feet. There's also no storage for the weapon. (If there is, the instructions fail to mention it)

Beast Mode - 3.5/10

I do not recommend this figure, the only reason I want to keep this is for the Mission To Cybertron card so I can put all the cards together and finish the puzzle. But I'm just gonna refund it anyways and pick up Megatron or Berserker because guess what? These are the same price as their counterparts, yay!

Overall - 4/10 (Poor)

Damn that head sculpt looks great, he looks terrifying.


Also picked up TLK Slug the other day, and I'm gonna pick up the Voyager Megs soon since he's out here in my country.

While all the toys from the mainline of Transformers: the Last Knight have been revealed, we can do with more images of the unreleased ones. Our usual Weibo source has new stock images of the what the finished toys of Deluxe Bumblebee and Crosshairs will look like and how they are packaged. These are both from wave 3 along with Strafe and Cogman.

Enjoy!

hey rainmaker, you mention a card that connects to form a biger image for the mission to cybertron toys. Could you show us a picture of that card for both skullitron and megatron? I dont think we have ever seen it.

HOW DO YOU MESS UP YOUR OWN TOY TRANSFORMATION? IF YOU WANT TO ADVERTISE IT, IT SHOULD LOOK IN ITS PRIME FORM (pun not intended) YOU SHOULD MAKE IT LOOK NEAT. NOT MESSED UP AND IMPROPERLY LOOKING

Kind of a remold, I guess. His trench coat works differently, and his vehicle mode has been remolded to better represent his corvette alt-mode. And yes, he is sporting some new paint apps in car mode.

Also, Bumblebee's knee spikes are yellow like they should be now, in all the pictures we've seen so far, they've been silver. Man, I can't wait for this figure! ;)^

What's with Bee's mega butt-flap? I understand many feel it is improperly transformed, but I'm not so sure. Are there any other pics that show the hood folded up onto his back?

Judging by the stock photos and the pins, the backpack will hug farther up like on past bees, but better. If you do want a butt accessory his gunarm can peg there :lol:

We have sightings from around the world that are first or early for their area, all regarding Transformers: The Last Knight

USA

Titan Changer Megatron, who transforms in 5 steps, has been found at Walmart in the US by Rookbartley from TFW2005.



Canada

The Mission for Cybertron 2 pack of deluxes has been found at Toysrus, by Seibertronian Kanrabat, for the price of $70 CDN.




Cybertron.ca user cli1ck found the Wave 2 voyagers at Walmart in Ontario, Canada, and Pascal from the same site found the Wave 2 legions in Quebec.



Philippines

In Manila, the aforementioned Wave 2 voyagers were also found along with the sought after leaders, both Megatron and Optimus. These sightings come from Cybertron Philippines.

The Optimus 2 pack sells like crazy near me, so I'm guessing 35 cad per figure is basically 2 loaves of bread for the price of 4 pounds of filet mignon!

It might have been nice if Bee had a mounting point for his gun on his shoulder as well as holding it in his hand - or replacing his hand.

It would a bit like his 2007 Shoulder Rocket launchers then.

I don't personally have an issue with Skullitron/Steelbane being floppy i'm sure it's easy enough to fix with whatever the appropriate required combination of resin glue, nail Polish and Floor polish might be.

Hopefully with any luck, Voyager Megatron will be sighted here in the US soon-ish. I did find Turbo Changer Megatron like a couple days ago when I went out to see if the stock situation improved at my local TRU, but it was like only one or two "new" things there.

The new Bee looks great, but the face is garbage. I hope I can swap it with the wave 1 head.

A kitbash is when you use a hammer or flat tool to flatten parts to form new armor and accessories for existing figures
