From the official Twitter account for Takara Tomy Transformers, we have news - with two images - of a limited edition TLK-EX Dark Optimus Prime, which appears to use the Voyager mold of the figure. The figure will be release in conjuction with retailer 7eleven's online service Omni7 and their advance tickets for the movie, due out in June (the listing however mentions July and the DVD category, so we may need some better translations here..). Check out the images below!

Better than the regular version but still missing a lot of painted areas and I'm happier with the way my custom is turning out even with my lousy paint skills. :)

Revealed? The first three regular images were uploaded to Myfigurecollection.net on 4/27. I thought they had already been posted here so I didn't say anything. Just a week or so ago I was hoping to order one off of the Omni7 site, only to find out these are only available in 7eleven stores, they're just reserved on the site. :(

The advance ticket release is 7/25 while the non-ticket release is 9/29. What's the Japanese release date, I can't find it anywhere? it's strange that the advance ticked would come out after the the movie has already been in theaters a month. People seem to think the September non-ticket release is for the BR/DVD release.

It's also June, which is why the dates listed are confusing.

It's about time we saw something different from Takara's TLK line for Transformers: The Last Knight. Thanks to a tip from fellow Seibertronian bacem, we found new images of a further remold to Takara's Movie Advanced Knight Armour Optimus Prime, which was a retool of the Age of Extinction Leader Prime. This upcoming Leader Optimus Prime is called TLK-15 Caliber Optimus Prime and the backpack the Leader figure is known to have will be removeable to turn into a riot shield, similar to what Striker Prime had. He also comes with a new axe weapon. This figure is set to retail for 8,000 yen in July, 2017. While nothing is confirmed, it is likely that this will be a Japan exclusive toy replacing the Leader Optimus Prime reissue Hasbro is doing for their Transformers: The Last Knight toyline. These images were found on a Facebook page.

In apparently the same magazine that brought us TLK-15 Optimus Prime, from the upcoming live-action movie Transformers: The Last Knight (King, in Japan), we also have a look a the Takara Tomy version of Leader class Megatron - and nothing much has changed, other than a slight paint coat, as suggested by other figures in the line seen so far.

What is entirely new is the small Legion class Megatron entirely in red - and we have seen a red Cybertronian show up in the latest international trailer for the movie. Check out the page scan below, courtesy of Twitter user マクベス, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub!

And the classic typo pops up yet again.

"Caliber" refers to firearms, specifically to the size of the bullet. The correct spelling should be "Caliur", derived from the fabled sword Excalibur. It's used quite a lot in Japanese pop culture for significant sword type weapons.

I'm guessing that moniker is used to distinguish the Leader from the standard yet exclusive Voyager release.

And yet again we have an Optimus Prime figure that HasBLO should make available in the USA, instead of another lousy repaint. Lame.

Or maybe they should've reworked and improved the leader figure. But clearly that's not high up on the priorities.

Or maybe make a new mold. I get that both Hasbro and Takara kept reusing the ROTF Leader Prime since it was really hard to improve, and they did eventually end up giving us a new mold (coming out this year) when technology caught up. But this Leader AOE mold is not something worth improving upon, its not a great mold and removing the backpack doesnt make him all that much more similar to what we see onscreen. The kibble around the feet is still obscene and the shoulders and hip guards arent accurate. The next Leader Prime in this design I pick up will be a new mold and if that never happens, then so be it.

I don know, you used toys as a plural and so far this is the only toy that is different from the Hasbro line.

AoE/Lost Age is an exception to the rule that initial waves of movie toys are the same between Japan and the rest of the world. Not only is Calibur Optimus Prime a somewhat later figure (TLK-15), he's not an original mold, so either company can take it into the direction they see fit. Hasbro is into simple redecos (of older molds no less), while TakaraTomy likes taking things a step further.

Since the toy ID's have come up, I do find it kind of bothersome that for TLK TakaraTomy has decided to lump it all into a single line, instead of splitting it like they did for AoE/Lost Age and Adventure. Why?

That riot prime... wow. I still need a movie Prime with an ax, and that thing is pretty wicked! I liked Striker Prime's riot shield/stealth force stuff (still really wish I could have gotten him) but this is still pretty cool too!
