Part of the Japanese TV Magazine, Autobase Aichi report a special 'Black Knight' edition of the Takara Tomy Transformers EZ Collection Bumblebee, with pretty much inverted colour scheme. It looks like the little fella will also get its origin story in a short manga included in the magazine it comes with, the issue due in September. Check out the mirrored image below!

What's odd is that "Black Knight" isn't spelled out in katakana. Instead, it's in the three kanji 黒騎士 (kurokishi).

Hasbro and TakaraTomy really should watch Bee Movie, especially the beginning,

Nah, the last one was a Movie Legends Starscream... done in green. Look up "Starscream KeroKero Version" and "KeroKero Ace" magazine, December 2011 issue.

In case you're wondering, "kero-kero" is the sound a frog makes.

Thanks but I was just referring to when I would get figures with my local magazines. Like this one from the 90s which came with lion king figures:

Here magazine pack-ins are still going strong, especially with magazines dealing with kids stuff. One even had an oversized KO of that Starscream mentioned earlier :lol:

I guess? He was alright in prime, not watching rid, but the whole not talking thing, is seriously pissing me off now, he's been a generic mute for 8 years now, talk about an extremely bare-bones mascot, he doesn't even talk. I'm not saying the development of his relationship with raf wasn't poignant, but I think its time we let him go, or as rid did, at least let him talk :roll:

But to the point, kinda tired of the regurgitated bb repaints; glad the dark days of rotf and dotm are over when there were multiple bee's in a wave/shelfwarming at the same time :SICK:

Ok, so I got my very first TAV/RID figures today. I wont be geting the hasbo versions since the takaras are priced cheaper than the usual deluxe prce whilw in canada, the RID deluxes are 3$ more than the generations ones (WHAT?!) and criminally underpainted.

I would like to discuss 2. First, Steeljaw (or Phantom Jaw, the version I got). That is a very complex transformation for a line said to be more simplified. And I like the tail. But the fron of the truck has a problem and I dont know if its just me. The front halfs (the legs) dont peg in properly and one side is really off. Did anybody else have this problem?

Image

As for Drift, oh man, what a great toy. I love how they use flipped panels inorder to use the vehicle kibble as a different pice in robot mode. So it makes for almost full alt mode integration while also having robot mode detail that doesnt show in alt mode (kinda like AOE Hound to a far lesser extent).

Image

I love that panel flip. the hood of the car is still on his chest but it becomes a totally different piece :BOWDOWN:

The Steeljaw mold for some reason makes it difficult for the legs to snap together firmly in alt mode, but it can be done. You have to push them together HARD, but it will happen, and the hood will be nice and flush along the central crease. However, looking at your picture, I wonder if the problem is a misassembly, like using two left joints in the legs instead of a left and right version? I've had that happen a few times with figures, like HFTD Soundwave and Generations 2012 GDO "Dead End." When space for robot kibble is tight, little oversights like using the mirrored part instead of the intended one make a huge difference for tolerances.

It's not that I don't want too, I don't get that channel, and, to be honest, Prime didn't really impress me all that much. Will probably binge watch it now that the season is over.

I don't got the channel either, but that didn't stop me from watching all 26 episodes of season 1 before episode 14 even aired on TV. ;)

And thank goodness the show is a far cry from Prime.

Besides, Bee is Batman. :P

The season IS over and the episodes are all over DailyMotion. Someone, somewhere, will provide you with the link.... Sabrblade, HALP!

It's a pretty fun and light show IMO.
