We had reported on Takara Tomy's presence at Tokyo Comic Con 2017, and their Transformers promotion for The Last Knight's home release (due in Japan on 13th December) back here - and we now have some extra images from the event that took place on the main stage!

The event took place at the Main Stage area and featured a guest performance by musician/comedian Junichi Davidson, along with some toy showing off, what looks like some singing and a transformation contest (perhaps), according to Japanese movie news website eiga.com. Snuck in with all the promotion, Takara also showed off a Gold Version of the Optimus Prime figure from the movie's toyline, to accompany the likes of the Golden Vector Shield and the Clear Voyager Optimus available in the country with the BluRay released of the film. Check out some images below!

Furio Tedeschi has posted a gallery of concept art on his website. The characters featured in his work are Optimus Primal, Sqweeks, Quintessa and HotRod. It is interesting to see how some of these characters differ from their looks in the movie. Most notibly Hotrod being called Sidekick (Probably a pre-production name) and being colored black or green when we know he looks completely different in the movie.

There are also some nice pieces to help build the world these characters live in such as the knights and statues. You can tell by looking over the pictures in this set how well all of these things create an environment that feels truly epic. One of the coolest features in the gallery is the up close look at all of the detailed swords in the movie, including Excalibur.

If you enjoy Furio Tedeschi's Artwork, we reccomend having a look at his concept art of Barricade and the Giant Robot Snake.

In our coverage of the events from Tokyo Comic Con 2017, we included images of the main stage with the Takara Tomy promotional celebration of Transformers: The Last Knight, with its home release hitting Japanese retail next week - as you can see here, the stage hosted both comedian Junichi Davidson (wearing the G1 art t-shirt) and music artist Okazaki Taiiku / Physical Education.

The latter was apparently involved in launching his latest single, a collaboration between the artist and the Transformers franchise, titled Emblem. This is not the first song connected to the movie, as Torches received both the Chinese release treatment with a cover by Zhang Jie and the original version in the trailer from X Ambassadors, as well as Steve Jablonsky and Celldweller working on the score. The track, which you can find on iTunes here, or check out a sample below, is closer to the style of the latter as you'll see - give it a listen!

Neat how he worked the English phrase "Freedom is the right sentient beings" into the song.

It's been just under a month since the last batch of Transformers: The Last Knight concept art, and now we have a few more concept images for the film to share, this time from artists James Paick and Wesley Burt. Shared by Paick on his Instagram account is an image of "Cybertron Vines", seemingly attached to and invading Earth. This is in contrast to the final film, which featured Cybertron crashing to Earth in chunks, but no kind of merging between the two planets.

Burt, meanwhile, has shared two images through his Twitter account. The first is an early concept for Barricade's appearance in The Last Knight, hewing much closer to his appearance in previous films with iconic character features like his long arms and insectoid face. (An animated version of the Barricade concept can be found on Burt's Instagram by following this link.) The second picture is another rough idea for Daytrader (simply called "Trader" here), appearing much thinner and far less similar to Hound in body-type, as well as sporting long "hair", goggles and a bandanna.

Check out the images below, and share any thoughts you may have in the Energon Pub Forums! It seems like concept art for The Last Knight is showing no signs of stopping either, so keep your optics tuned to Seibertron.com for any more Transformers news - movie-related or otherwise - that comes around!

Now that's a proper Barricade update! I like that way more than the one we actually got.

Head's way to small on that Barricade it's otherwise a great design, not sure if it would have looked good on the big screen though.

Anyways the more important news to me is the fact we now have an actual Barricade cgi render from movie 1!

No those promotional pictures of the movie one cast like this one are not actual movie cgi renders.

Eh, that Barricade concept's alright though I don't like that spoiler sticking out the back so high in robot form unless there's a practical reason as to why he hasn't broken it down into parts to fold away. i didn't like TLK Barricade at first cos he seemed too 'human' in proportions but I'm kinda used it now. Hell I kinda wish he could just be both. Like the TLK form is his calm patrol bot form and the more alien one there is when he gets pissed off and ready to 'interrogate' the hell out of someone with a vicious beatdown.

I think that's just because he's hunched over.

I think I would've liked this version of Daytrader a lot more than what we actually got.
