Thanks to a post on Dengeki Hobby, we have news that there is a new Takara Tomy campaign happening, this time for a chance to own a special edition quad barreled shotgun! The Shotgun shown as the campaign award appears to be a redeco of the shotgun mold that came with Age of Extinction Hound, but done up in Optimus Prime red and blue flame colors. According to he Dengeki article, the gun is meant to represent a gun used by Prime while he was brainwashed and fighting Bumblebee in The Last Knight, though in the promotional images it is shown with the Studio Series Revenge of the Fallen Optimus Prime figure, for promotional purposes with a new figure obviously.

The campaign will begin on April 21st and will run until stock is depleted. In order to get the shotgun, you must buy 4000 yen worth of product from select Japanese stores, the names of which will most likely be available a little bit closer to the start of the campaign.

Check out the shotgun below, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!

i personally like his twin blade that he got on normal release, more than this gun that is just AOE hound's gun with a bit more paint. so i don't think i'm gonna spend money on that, and won't feel missing out when i do.

The gun resembles the one used by Optimus to attack the KSI headquarters in Chicago in Age of Extinction, and to attack Bumblebee and the TRF in The Last Knight. I'm hoping for a release of it with maybe Movie The Best Voyager TLK Prime, if that ever happens... Anyway, it looks good ;)^

for a second i thought we were getting a quad-barreled, hand-held role play weapon, and i thought "how the hell did that get made?"

As an update to the Takara Tomy Quad Barrelled Shotgun campaign story which we first covered here, we now have in hand images of the tiny tiny Optimus Prime colour-themed gun, as seen in the Transformers: The Last Knight scenes in which Optimus attacks Bumblebee - shown in the promotional images as being wielded by the Studio Series version of the figure, which is closer to Revenge of the Fallen.

The Shotgun is part of a promotional Takara Tomy campaign that sees a purchase of 4000 Yen in the specified period (from 21st April) granting you the accessory. The images come from Singapore based Facebook page Planet Iacon, and have been mirrored for your viewing convenience - check them out!

Could easily just take one of my aoe guns from Hound and paint it up like that without having to spend so much, or I could get the MTB Hound and do the same with it, and still get a figure to boot. Would probably only use the shield canopy from him anyways.

I wasn't aware this was an AOE Hound gun. Makes this pretty lack luster...

The Quad Barrelled Shotgun campaign from Takara Tomy Transformers means that a purchase of 4000 Yen in the specified period (from 21st April) grants you the accessory, which is a sneakily redecoed Age of Extinction Hound gun, painted to suit more Optimus Prime as he wielded it in The Last Knight while fighting Bumblebee.

Thanks to Japanese toy blogger Alfes2010 over on Twitter, we now have in-hand images of the accessory, wielded by a number of Studio Series figures, such as Starscream, Bumblebee and of course Optimus Prime, who can also carry it on the back of the truck mode. Check them all out below, and let us know if this is something you might try acquiring for your movie collection!

It's a nice looking gun, but I'm not sure if it's worth 4000 yen for. You can paint one from Hound's, or wait for Reprolabels for one. I keep liking that Prime more and more as I see photos of him though :x ;)^

Also, has it been confirmed what upcoming figures will be introduced in Studio Series? I am really anxious to know.
