We have some news from the Japanese side of Transformers: The Last Knight, which saw its home release only just over a week ago in the country, and Takara Tomy's TLK toyline - with a new Cybertron Satellite promotion, according to their official website. It comes down the following: every purchase of over 2000 Yen (approx 17 USD) from the line will give you the option of receiving a metallic file featuring Transformers The Last Knight art, namely Optimus Prime in his knightly pose and a selection of both Autobots and Decepticons featuring in the Paramount live-action movie.

We've mirrored the images of the promotion below, give them a look and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub discussion boards!

By "file", it's otherwise known as a "clear folder", I think.

I just checked, and I think it's British English too. For years, I've been using the computing term of "file in a folder", but, rather strangely, almost all definitions state "a file is a container, like a folder".



Oh well, I learnt something new today.

Nice to see that the Cybertron Satellite is still a thing.

Just an FYI side note: They're actually called "clear files" in Japanese (クリアファイル -- kuriafuairu). Though this one technically isn't a clear file since it isn't clear it's metallic (メタリックファイル -- metarikkufuairu).

(I admit I had to cheat on the "fuairu" part because ァ doesn't convert into romaji right so I replaced it with an 'a'.)

I know what they're called in Japanese, but anyways thought that the Japanese term was based upon incorrect English.

Amazon.jp has listed several of the Takara version of the Turbo Changers on their site as word of Takara and Hasbro both discuss "uniting the brands" continues. If that is happening, this would be part of it. TakaraTomy is taking the Hasbro Knight Armor Changer molds and souping them up by adding more screen accurate paint jobs and better highlights for the Knight Armor pieces to make them stand out better. So far the set include Bumblebee, Grimlock, Megatron, and Optimus Prime. Click on the images below to pop over to Amazon.jp to see additional images and/or place an order for them.

It's a little too late for more TLK movie toys now, isn't it? My minions have just gotten back from trawling the Walmarts now that Christmas is over. Almost all the Transformers were sold out - except the TLK ones. Plenty of those warming the shelves.

What should THAT tell Hasbro....?

I had the opposite experience, the only transformers that sold a significant amount by Tuesday morning was TLK Deluxe.

Proof that everything anyone sees is purely anecdotal. Like the time that all RID toys were sold out in my area.
