Courtesy of Loopaza Mega Store on Facebook, we have an idea of what to expect from Takara Tomy Transformers next spring, in terms of their live-action movie lines (a possible filler in Legends before Power of the Primes counterpart releases, perhaps): a lot. The image below shows that 4 deluxes, 2 voyagers and 2 leaders will appear: Bumblebee, Stinger, Decepticon Crowbar, and Ratchet, Optimus Prime and Starscream, Grimlock and Blackout - plus MPM5 Barricade, too. Take a look below!

Takaratomy Transformers April Lineup

We have receive a confirm of the April, 2018 line up in Takaratomy side Transformers.

As fans may know there will be a newly design in the Movie series. In the mean time, there should be 8 characters confirm as in the image. According to their price, that will be like 4 deluxe size, 2 in voyager size and 2 in leader size.

Also the MPM5 is there, will it be the rumor Barricade? Let's see how its go.

So this wave's going to have a deluxe stinger, voyager 07 Starscream, leader Blackout AND a deluxe Bumblebee in it?! Sign me up! I also wonder if this new Bee is the "TF6 Stryker" that we've been hearing about for a while. Perhaps a movie preview figure? I would really like a redo of his classic Camaro mode from the first movie though.

I hope we get a leader class Blackout, I would instantly buy that if that were the case. I'd reckon the Bumblebee figure will be his AoE look similar to Stinger, if they make it a new mold that is. That way they get two uses of the mold with some retooling.

Yes, yes i would.

Is Stinger a new figure or at least a reshell of the AoE Bee mold to feature the actual car Stinger was in the film?

And Leader Blackout does seem to be the case too.

Based on what we saw for the leaks it looks like leader class Megatron, Brawl, Blackout and Grimlock were new molds, Grimlock in particular looks phenomenal engineering wise so there is a good chance many of these figures are also new molds.

I'm going to go on a guess and assume that the Bumblebee figure is going to be the VW from the upcoming film since that movie is not going to have it's own toy line, new character is probably Stryker from the leaks who I'm going to assume is the red car Decepticon that was shown on set for the Bee movie, my last guess is that Crowbar will in the future be remolded into Dreadbot.

Like I posted above Stryker is probably the listing that is labeled as "new character" he is probably the red car Decepticon we saw on set.

I really hope the deluxe Ratchet isn't another stupid DOTM repaint/retool, Hastak took it too far with that mold for the past 7 years. :evil: :evil: :evil:



I'm new here Btw.

The "new character" has the MPM-5 label on it though, and the price is right for a masterpiece figure. I'm pretty sure that's masterpiece Barricade. It is weird that they wouldn't call him by name though, maybe they're still trying to keep it a secret.

Not to be a defeatist, but there's a chance that these "leaders" are the original voyagers. Overpriced repaints, as usual.

Allow me to be sceptic toward low def "leaks". I'll wait for the REAL pictures of the ACTUAL toys before getting exited.

This confirms that Brawl and Megs are NOT leaders. They were on the same slide as Optimus and Starscream which we now know have the voyager price point. So they are also voyagers. Blackout and Grimlock were the only two to have a seperate slide to themselves and we now know why, they are leaders.

Really hoping we get these sooner than later saved for ths 2018 Bumblebee movie. And if this gets expanded on, part of me wants to have main characters get some deco variants (DOTM Optimus as a chase version of the MV1/ROTF Prime, Grindor from Blackout, and Dreadbot from Crowbar , implying they can make him into a rusty Volkswagon bus).

Pretty interesting info on the Takara Tomy side. This coincides with the Hasbro leak perfectly. The only addition is Bumblebee, but as others said he's probably the "06 Stryker2" from the leak (explains why he and Stinger are in the first two waves). Missing from the leak are Deluxe Jazz and Lockdown, Voyager Ironhide, and the second Starscream (can't tell if this listing is the '07 or RotF version). With Movie the Best Jazz and Lockdown coming soon and the two characters not being on the list I have to wonder just how different those two new figures are from the original molds.

i hope they make a new jazz mold that looks cool, i missed out on the human alliance jazz, and since prices are way to high for that thing, this may be my only chance to get a movie jazz. (pls hasbro/takara, make a good NEW mold)

or just re release the human alliance version, (if only)

This listing tells us otherwise. Blackout does not have the leader price point, much much lower instead so he would be smaller than a leader.

If the figures were even half as limber and detailed as the artist depictions, they might be worth getting. If they're just remolds of the old movie figures? Not worth it.

Something tells me Crowbar is already going to be a remold, from TLK Berserker. New head + some chains where the shoulder spikes are and he's basically done.

Hopefully they do add some more TLK Decepticons via this line someday, though.

We were looking at the different comparatives. I was comparing this to the MB line prices instead of the standard TLK prices. Makes way more sense now. So yay, leader Blackout!

Its very simple with me, I will get all the new molds this line offers.

I've wanted a leader Blackout (and Bonecrusher) for 10 years now, but I still have to wait and see pics and reviews. Hastak has been a bit of a disappointment in the quality department lately.

Hopefully this new Jazz'll eventually get a G1-based redeco. I always wanted the G1 deco version that the original 2007 mold got, but that thing's robot mode just did not look good.

The stellar Human Alliance Jazz could have been amazing in a G1 deco with all the printed details and such. Could have been a something-or-other exclusive. A missed opportunity.

I know it's not part of the leaks, but I would be totally happy if they re released that human alliance jazz with a leader price tag....

When it comes to Jazz figures, I just want it to have a nice, reflective coat of silver paint, a screen accurate weapon, a good size next to the other MV1 characters, and better proportions. While the obligated nostalgia G1 deco homage does look better than First Strike Prime or Rescue Ratchet, I could care less for it to be honest.

this again is why i love the look of that human alliance version, to bad unless it gets re released, it'll stay overpriced everywhere...... should just go with that ko at this point.....

And now it's time for it to ve in a Deluxe scale while still having it fit in with the current Deluxe budget.

I'm excited to actually get a look at these figures. A new Blackout and Brawl sound good to me, not sure about Megs and Grimlock, and the deluxes sound good. I'm looking forward to the new movie edition lines!
