Well dang, that looks near perfect as far as this mold goes! I'd hope there'll be a way to get him stateside, but I doubt he'll come cheap.

That is very nice. Reckon I can get the regular Hasbro release looking almost as nice with a bit of paint with flames provided by Toyhax/Reprolabels who I hope are working on a sticker set.

Good point, I honestly completely forgot about Reprolabels! I'll probably start painting my Prime in a couple days, I'm excited to see how accurate I can make him.

Yeah me too (when I get my figure). Hm, that Dark Optimus Prime's truck flames are much better than the ones Hasbro actually did bother do to. That might be a harder thing to 'fix'. But the robot mode shouldn't be too difficult.

Me: Alright, I can probably skip all the recurring characters and just grab any new characters or any figures that get exemplary reviews.

Also me, noticing that Barricade comes with a 5mm-compatible truncheon: ffffffffffffffff

Via Dengeki Hobby once more, we have some new official photography of a Takara Tomy Transformers: The Last Knight (King) toyline figure: TLK-02 Deluxe Barricade! Check out the images below, and compare to our various in-hand takes of the Hasbro Decepticon toy to spot the differences - which doesn't seem many at all.

Is there any more Limited Editions (like scruffy Bumblebee and Evil Optimus ?) - I heard there was a Barricade Limited Edition (possibly Black instead of blue) - but I've yet to see it ?

There aren't any differences between this and the USA version because it IS the USA version. Takara slapped a few stickers on the USA/European boxes and called it a day. I just saw Barricade, BB, Grimlock, the Predator thing, etc for sale in Aeon Mall in Japan, alongside the Japanese versions of Grimlock.

Via Twitter account TokuToku Scans, we have some promotional material for Japanese audiences for Transformers: The Last Knight (King), in the form of a spread featuring one steps, Turbo Changers, Legion class Optimus Prime and Bumblebees! Check out the image below, from Terebi-kun a younger readers TV magazine.

From the official Twitter account for Takara Tomy Transformers, we have news - with two images - of a limited edition TLK-EX Dark Optimus Prime, which appears to use the Voyager mold of the figure. The figure will be release in conjuction with retailer 7eleven's online service Omni7 and their advance tickets for the movie, due out in June (the listing however mentions July and the DVD category, so we may need some better translations here..). Check out the images below!

Better than the regular version but still missing a lot of painted areas and I'm happier with the way my custom is turning out even with my lousy paint skills. :)

Revealed? The first three regular images were uploaded to Myfigurecollection.net on 4/27. I thought they had already been posted here so I didn't say anything. Just a week or so ago I was hoping to order one off of the Omni7 site, only to find out these are only available in 7eleven stores, they're just reserved on the site. :(

The advance ticket release is 7/25 while the non-ticket release is 9/29. What's the Japanese release date, I can't find it anywhere? it's strange that the advance ticked would come out after the the movie has already been in theaters a month. People seem to think the September non-ticket release is for the BR/DVD release.

It's also June, which is why the dates listed are confusing.

It's about time we saw something different from Takara's TLK line for Transformers: The Last Knight. Thanks to a tip from fellow Seibertronian bacem, we found new images of a further remold to Takara's Movie Advanced Knight Armour Optimus Prime, which was a retool of the Age of Extinction Leader Prime. This upcoming Leader Optimus Prime is called TLK-15 Caliber Optimus Prime and the backpack the Leader figure is known to have will be removeable to turn into a riot shield, similar to what Striker Prime had. He also comes with a new axe weapon. This figure is set to retail for 8,000 yen in July, 2017. While nothing is confirmed, it is likely that this will be a Japan exclusive toy replacing the Leader Optimus Prime reissue Hasbro is doing for their Transformers: The Last Knight toyline. These images were found on a Facebook page.

Well this is hella neat. Makes the toy infinitely better.

In apparently the same magazine that brought us TLK-15 Optimus Prime, from the upcoming live-action movie Transformers: The Last Knight (King, in Japan), we also have a look a the Takara Tomy version of Leader class Megatron - and nothing much has changed, other than a slight paint coat, as suggested by other figures in the line seen so far.

What is entirely new is the small Legion class Megatron entirely in red - and we have seen a red Cybertronian show up in the latest international trailer for the movie. Check out the page scan below, courtesy of Twitter user マクベス, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub!

And the classic typo pops up yet again.

"Caliber" refers to firearms, specifically to the size of the bullet. The correct spelling should be "Caliur", derived from the fabled sword Excalibur. It's used quite a lot in Japanese pop culture for significant sword type weapons.

I'm guessing that moniker is used to distinguish the Leader from the standard yet exclusive Voyager release.
