The first update comes concerning the Bronze Caliber Axe, the gold colored version of the axe that comes with Caliber Optimus Prime that was revealed over here. The axe is now available, and here is how you get it: go to Takara Tomy Mall, spend at least 2000 yen, and a Caliber Axe is yours! This information, along with an image of the bronze axe, comes from Snakas Blog.

The second update, also from Snakas blog, reveals that starting November 11, a second promotion will be happening where you can spend 5000 yen at Takara Tomy Mall and a gold version of Megatron's battle axe and Optimus' Temenos sword can be yours! The pair were teased in the previous story that you can see above, but here are finally shown in full.

According to stuff I've read, all 3 are Leader weapons.

I saw the ax on TTMall this morning (I check every morning looking to see if Brave Max has made its goals), but I can't read Japanese and couldn't find any translatable text on the site so I didn't bother passing it along. :HEADHURTS:

As we have seemingly be writing about forever, today was the release date for the home releases of Transformers: The Last Knight - the fifth live-action movie from Paramount and Michael Bay - in Japan, where it's know as the The Last Knight King (or King of Knights, though nothing to do with Saber). We covered a while ago the 7 Eleven exclusive accompanying figure with the Blu-Ray edition of the movie, too, a clear plastic Optimus Prime, which uses the Voyager Premier edition of the character.

Thanks to regular suspects on social media, aka Japanese toy bloggers tagoal, Alfes 2010, singgg4 and yokozana, we have some in-hand, in-package, and posed images of the toy, too! Take a look below at some pretty cool looking full body light piping, and let us know what you think of the toy in the Energon Pub Discussion Board!

Clear versions of Starscream are meant to represent him as a ghost. So does that mean this guy is a Ghost Optimus?

He's meant to be the "Ghost of Michael's Past", forever haunting Mr Bay's dreams until he fixes his ways and starts making decent films.

Ghostimus Prime look nie. But not nice enough for me to spend the big bucks and import him from a 3p seller.

Just further supports my hate for clear plastic figures, especially when it's paired with opaque plastic. :SICK:

In some previous cases, clear versions of Optimus represented powered up "Crystal" forms of him. 8-)

I'll take opaque with clear if means less chance of breakage.

I usually dislike clear figures but I actually really like this. Not enough to pay the likely high cost to get one but I do really like it.

My Japanese friend told me that her TF-loving sons wanted to get the toy, but not the "Amerika eiga (movie)". I think she was basically saying they didn't want to fork out more of their pocket-money on a crummy Bay film just to get a clear version of a toy they already have.

That, and I have already brought the world of wei Jiang to their attention...

That clear Prime does look kinda nifty, but I'm not shelling out for an ultimately pointless redeco of a merely OK mold.

Now a proper Nemesis coloured Nemesis Prime version? THAT I would buy.

We have some news from the Japanese side of Transformers: The Last Knight, which saw its home release only just over a week ago in the country, and Takara Tomy's TLK toyline - with a new Cybertron Satellite promotion, according to their official website. It comes down the following: every purchase of over 2000 Yen (approx 17 USD) from the line will give you the option of receiving a metallic file featuring Transformers The Last Knight art, namely Optimus Prime in his knightly pose and a selection of both Autobots and Decepticons featuring in the Paramount live-action movie.

We've mirrored the images of the promotion below, give them a look and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub discussion boards!

By "file", it's otherwise known as a "clear folder", I think.

I just checked, and I think it's British English too. For years, I've been using the computing term of "file in a folder", but, rather strangely, almost all definitions state "a file is a container, like a folder".

Oh well, I learnt something new today.

Nice to see that the Cybertron Satellite is still a thing.

Just an FYI side note: They're actually called "clear files" in Japanese (クリアファイル -- kuriafuairu). Though this one technically isn't a clear file since it isn't clear it's metallic (メタリックファイル -- metarikkufuairu).

(I admit I had to cheat on the "fuairu" part because ァ doesn't convert into romaji right so I replaced it with an 'a'.)
