We still have a couple more collected image round-ups from Tokyo Comic Con 2017, which took place this weekend in Japan with a significant Takara Tomy presence - Transformers or otherwise - as you can see from the The Last Knight (King) event covered here.

In this post, we have the best look yet at the movie-verse toyline released by the Japanese company celebrating the Paramount and Michael Bay series of live-action films under the Movie the Best monicker. Included in the shots below, mirrored from the Snakas blog and Twitter user Masabon, are MB-16 Jetfire, MB-17 Optimus Prime, MB-20 Nemesis Prime and MB-19 Hound, all in robot mode, and in a group shot. Check them out below, and let us know what you think of these figures and the line!

I know I don't speak for all. But IMO, 'the best Bayverse toys' is like saying 'the least foul sewage'.....

-G1 Ironhide and Ratchet got no heads (yes, I'm fully aware of their Diaclone heritage)
-Gold Plastic Syndrome victims
-TFP Airachnid and her cheaper than RID line attributes
-Universe Ironhide and Galvatron are inexcusably panel-heavy or overly complex.
-Many Generations Leaders starting with Jetfire are simpler than they need to be (also no electronics makes the price even less acceptable)
-Beast Machines inaccuracies ahold
-Most Masterpieces after Magnus v.2 look naked next to their slightly more detailed cousins (like MP-10 or Prowl)
-Many Post-T30 toys get too devoted to being slavishly toy accurate unlike the Classics, Universe, and 2010-2014 Generations lines
-FOC figures are a downgrade from the WFC figures


While there are movie toys that I don't like (such as the one steps or Blazemaster), I heavily disagree with the comparison (almost sounds like favoritism to some extent).

Disregard the bay haters who come here only to take a dump on the designs. It's like a news article featuring cake and I drop in the comments only to say "I HATE CAKE". It's completely pointless and make the hater look like a douche with too much spare time.

This is my sentiment towards all those who do the same thing in generations threads.

This could apply to anything, really.

Why is this something you felt you needed to get out and just tell everyone?

This isn't even criticism or anything it's just plain hate.

While I have issues with that Optimus Prime leader knight mold, that Nemesis looks gorgeous.

I like Hound. I haven't got a figure of him yet so I might wait for that Takara one just for that shield to bulk up the vehicle mode.

(Generally, Bayverse figures are my fave Transformers figures)

Continuing our coverage from across several landmasses, we have some more images coming out of Wonderfest 2018 in Tokyo (approximately) courtesy of fellow Seibertronian primalxconvoy, focusing again on the Paramount live-action Transformers movieverse, but with an eye to the Movie the Best series from Takara Tomy Transformers!

The images below show the later highlights of the line, from MB-12 onwards, with the likes of Voyager Hound, and Starscream, Deluxe Bumblebee with Hammer, Lockdown, Bonecrusher, Jazz, and Leaders Jetfire, Optimus Prime, Megatron, with some extra Optimus Prime for good measure. Check it all out below, and let you if you picked up any of the toys from this last fully available Takara only version of figures, before the unification!

It's been a while since we've gotten some news regarding Takara's Movie The Best line, as Hasbro's Studio Series has been dominating the Bayverse figure news cycle. But that changes today, thanks to site sponsor Robot Kingdom, who has uploaded images of the next wave of figures' packaging over on their Facebook page! This next set of toys include Jazz, Bonecrusher, TLK Megatron and AOE Lockdown, all in spiffy new paint jobs different from their original releases! Check out the new images below, and let us know in the Energon Pub Forums if you'll be picking these figures up or will be waiting for Hasbro's upcoming Studio Series!

I have Megatron on order. I'm not so sure about how he looks in the box, the early pics had him look like he would be darker and maybe have a metallic wash to look worn in places, but through the box it looks like he's much lighter colored. Oh well, I'm already locked in. I know he wasn't as well received as the Voyager, but he does appear to be the most screen accurate version. Oh well, I'm sure we'll be seeing in hand pics soon.

These look pretty cool, it's just weird because Jazz and Lockdown are both getting new molds soon, and I'd be shocked if Bonecrusher didn't get a new mold in studio series. Hopefully we get more pics of war hammer Bee soon, I have him ordered ;)^

I still have Lockdown on preorder and have no intention of canceling him, I'll definitely be picking up the studio series mold when it releases but it'll be nice to have a variant of the character with that awesome battle mask!

Man I really want a new bonecrusher mold.

Pointless since most are getting new molds soon, but some might have missed these to complete their movie collection.
