The new Takara website section that is promoting The Last Knight toys has updated with some new images of packaging art for Hound, Bumblebee, Optimus Prime, and Barricade! These new images show the character's new looks, with Bee getting an updated alt mode and reverting back to a more Dark of the Moon styled body, while Barricade takes up his new look as the bad boy Decepticon cop that looks a little more human than his previous appearance. Looking close, it is also interesting to note that Barricade has replaced his "To Punish and Enslave" with "To Protect and Serve" in his robot mode as well, and we get a good close-up of his new brass knuckles.

Check out the packaging art below, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!

Still amusing that Bumblebee turned into a stinger knock-off then changed back to his normal look.

To sell toys. I liked the ninja look, but the door wings suit him so much more

Am I the only one who wishes that they had made Barricade as a new character? He only superficially resembles his previous robot mode. Even when Optimus changed bodies between DOTM and AOE, he was still instantly recognizable in robot mode.

Still feels like Barricade is switching sides. The knuckles were one thing, but now he's PLASTERED with "protect and serve". It'll be strange if he stays a Decepticon looking like that.

Glad to see Bee's design getting closer to the original, I wasn't crazy about the AOE look. Too bad Optimus hasn't done the same.

Based on the fact that Bee blasts him in the trailer, I think he's still bad.

But maybe he had to attempt to blend in better, and "to punish and enslave" was a bit too obvious.

Or maybe he's "protecting and serving" Megatron. remember: "keep calm and all hail Megatron" ;)

I always wonder how Hasbro got away with those pentagrams on Bumblebee. I know they are stars but I remember people always accusing cartoons of having pentagrams or other symbols in them for no reason other than to stir the pot.

The fact that Barricade during filming has been chasing Bee and otherwise been seen only with Cons during non action scenes in the filming proves he is just as bad as he once was.

He still has "Punished and Enslaved" on vehicle mode although in some point during filming the motto was changed to "Keep calm and hail Megatron" which probably happens later in the film also his elbows have "Punish and Enslave" on them as well





The only reason he has Protect and Serve on his knuckles is so it can be ironic that he is beating up Autobots with the words Protect and Serve and ever since 2007 Barricade's whole Police thing is supposed to be ironic since Barricade is an evil and vile Decepticon who enjoys hurting others.

we were also referring to the packaging art, which has "to protect and serve" on it several times, both in knuckles and in alt mode kibble

Yes but I was talking about the knuckle dusters although I did not notice the protect and serve stuff being on his armor on first viewing I see it now though during the filming the only logos on him that we were able to see on him were "Punish and Enslave" and the "Keep calm and hail Megatron" motto that was spotted later in filming.

So if Barricade make a heel face turn it wont be till the end of the movie but I doubt he will since this is just package art, Cade has his con logos anyways and I can and will point out that the Optimus in the packaging art is inaccurate to how he appears in the trailers for this film and the end of AOE Optimus is missing the Knight upgrades that he gets from pulling the sword in AOE for example his knight gauntlet arms are gone in this promotional image yet he has them in the TLK trailers.

Isn't everything new about the movies the "greatest" thing you've ever seen Sly? :lol:

So there's the new Bumblebee mold, and then there's the repaint of AoE 'Bee. What's up with that? The new mold looks great, but the repaint feels unnecessary.

Always and forever. Especially when I can't stop staring at them for hours.

It's the classic "Sell as many Bee's as we can" marketing strategy.

Only realistic reason I can think of.

Well, having an old and a newer Bumblebee in any line is Hasbro's strategy, and TakaraTomy is just following its lead.

Guess so. Aoe's two deluxe Bees were different molds that served different purposes, at least. I would've preferred something like that in this case.

Damn those are nice pics. May use them as reference when painting extra details on the toys.

I wasn't really sold on Barricade's new look at first (solid design but I missed old Barry) but I've warmed to it now.

I loved AoE Bee's design and was disappointed he's reverted back to his old form though updated, but I'm with that now too.

I'm glad Prime's still in AoE Knight design. I loved his look from the first three films but we've had enough toys of that now, and it's hard to top the RotF Leader mold or Battle Blade and Evasion molds of that robot mode. I'm keen on getting this new TLK Voyager figure.

It seems like the 'perpetually offended' and 'moms with nothing better to do' crowds pay more attention to video/tabletop games and books to make up things to freak out over. Or maybe they're scared of messing with Michael Bay.
