Courtesy of the official Toys'R'Us Japan channel on YouTube, we have a new commercial for the exclusive toyline that will be hitting the retailer alongside Transformers: The Last Knight (King, as it's known in the localised release) - some of whom are specific exclusives for the store, such as the two Voyager and Leader Megatrons. The clip uses stop motion animation and voice-over narration, and features the likes of Bumblebee, Sqweeks, Hound, Optimus Prime, Drift and more - leading into the TLK line, the One-Steps, and the Movie Masterpiece figures. Check it out below!

As the US has Valvoline and Valvotron, Takara Tomy Transformers in Japan has also partnered up with a garage chain - Idemitsu - in order to bring a lottery for its users (Japan only)! The main prize, for 200 winners? TLK Calibur Optimus Prime! Followed by Transformers themed USB chargers and cards. Check it out below.

We have an update on the Takara Tomy Transformers: The Last Knight TLK-EX exclusive figure through 7eleven in Japan, the Dark Optimus edition of the Voyager figure, in the form of in-hand images of the figure, the box, and a comparison with Voyager Megatron, as mirrored on the Snakas blog (though the source is fellow collector Anh Quan Nguyen). Check the images out below!

Aw it's leader class.
Which probably doesn't make any difference to me cos things like this are near impossible to get and likely expensive anyways.

It's the shield that's being shown off. It's a campaign item that comes by itself.

Well, if it's held by a 5mm peg (I don't know that it is or not), any size class could hold it. ;)

From toy blogger Alfes2010 and Taiwan-based fan Yu Ting An, we have some new in-hand images of Takara Tomy Transformers' The Last Knight (TLK-15) Calibur Optimus Prime - their pumped up leader class figure for the Autobot commander! Included in the images below, we get to see the accessories, robot and vehicle mode, and comparisons with Age of Extinction's (Lost Age, technically) AD-31 Armor Knight Optimus Prime. Check them all out!

That mod for the backpack shield is rather impressive. I do wish the flames where that darker red though... Looks like an amazing figure, and the best-of-the-best in every way. I really don't know how Hasbro hasn't gotten this one or the previous version out of Japan.

It's nice (particularly the paintjob) but I still hate those shoulder pads and how you can't put flames on them cos they form the top of the truck.

That's a good point. Flames on those shoulders would look badass... Maybe if they could rotate around? But then you'd expose the ball-socket.

(slightly off-topic: I didn't know there were domestic pre-orders for him: https://www.tfsource.com/transformers-t ... mus-prime/ - especially with the "bonus" sword)

So... the difference between the two is that one has an axe?

Can they be removed or are those joints pinned?

The whole backpack comes of and forms a riot shield.

So basically, the horrid backpack can detatch? Well, partsforming is a solution, but it's not the best one.

I'm actually quite impressed it can still clip on the back in "standard" configuration. I like that the shield passes the accessory test at first glance.... really have to catch it at an angle/side to notice the kibble.

That's pretty damn cool. Not accurate at all but hey, it looks awesome. I'm loving that shield and the axe.
