Pretty good cgi for just a toy commercial anyone think Prime could get that helmet in the final battle or something in the movie?

While I doubt it myself especially for the other characters they clearly already have a "model" for Optimus that could be tweaked for the actual movie Cgi like maybe he get's fully brainwashed or something since that red is the same color as that red "thing" on his left cheek.

Voyager Prime looks really good. Paint looks meh, but I really want a good base for customizing anyway. :D

Oh btw, is Prime's trailer hole a 5mm peg hole?

The Transformers: The Last Knight toyline is being released worldwide this week and if you are curious to know what is in store if you pick up one of the only two new deluxe molds, Berserker, then I wrote a review with pictures. He is not great, but definitely a step up from Barricade, who was just too small, simple and kibble heavy for my taste. You can read that review here.

Now onto Berserker!

As I said, a definite step up from Barricade in terms of several problems I had. Firstly, he is literally a step up by being a tad bit taller and more in line with what I expect from a deluxe.

Image

Image

Secondly, the deco and paint apps don't leave me wanting that much more. It's not like there are places which badly need paint and nothing seems cheap. I especially like the asymetrical "X" on his chest. It looks like war paint, lending to his more barbarian and predatory design. All his claws (feet and hands) are painted too to distinguish them from the rest of his hands and feet. The silver highlights on his face give him a nice premium feel as well.

Image

Image

Image

Lastly, there is a major improvement over barricade (and other shellformers) in how well the shell folds away. This isn't anything close to the genius of Prime Vehicon, but it is better than TLK Barricade, the AOE Leader Optimus Primes and the movie Sideswipe toys we have gotten in the past. There is a lot of compressing and folding to have as little car parts showing as possible.

Personally though, while it's an improvement over other shellformers, it also becomes the figure's downfall. Since the ROTF line, Takara has improved on its engineering for robots which don't show much of their alt mode. Instead of creating a back pack, the found new techniques that involve either turning the figure inside out (AOE Voyager Hound and Optimus Prime) or fully compressing a backpack (Voyagers AOE Galvatron and TLK Optimus Prime) and minimizing alt mode kibble on the robot. However, here they went the old way which means you have all these overlapping panels all across his back (and protruding above his head) plus some really random looking car details along his arms, like movie Leader Ironhide. Also, the car panels that rest on the back of his legs dont fold flush, which is a bit of a bummer, since it brings further attention to kibble that shouldn't be there.

Image

Image

Image

Oh, speaking of those arm car parts, here's a new complaint: glue is missing. They are "stuck" to the arms due to friction but can drop to the floor at any given instant and will be sure to come off during transformation. Then again, I did complain about them looking random in robot mode so them not being glued means you could remove them no problem for him to look more like the Dreadwind character model. But he probably isn't in the movie anyway (at least not looking like this) so what is the point either way? Moving on, these are not the only parts to come off, the head is really loose and will also come off easily.

Image

Aside from the car parts clashing with the rest of the figure, the robot mode isn't bad at all. Nice articulation and very expressive.

Image

The shellforming nature of the figure does come to bite it in the butt when you start transforming it. He is actually quite simple but because he has more seperate panels than need connecting than any transformer I can remember (even more than Leader Sentinel Prime), it becomes a very frustrating transformation. There is a lot of panel massaging and multiple panels clipping onto one another at once from different parts. So clipping another panel can undo the previous ones. One odd thing I noticed while transforming was that he has a hole under his crotch and it doesn't serve for anything (maybe a stand? but it looks too small). A little distracting.

Image

The shellforming nature means almost none of the robot is visible in car mode and they do succeed here (some robot parts show in the back). You have some panel lines but nothing egregious and if it is transformed correctly, it will all stay together tightly with no gaps. The vehicle appears to look puny at first but it is as long as any other deluxe vehicle. It just looks small because the type of car is usually bigger than a car for a deluxe Transformer. One really cool thing no one has mentioned is how this brings back the pins for the wheels rather than the pressure pegs. He rolls nicely.


Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

In the end, if you were ok with shellformers from the ROTF era, this is pretty much the same thing with a more finicky transformation and parts that fall off. Still, you get a nice looking robot mode and vehicle mode that look nothing like eachother. I personally preffer it to his other new mold wavemate, Barricade, simply because they do a better job with the back pack, deco and don't overly simplify the transformation. However, I still remain unimpressed with this line so far due to its lack of anything new or smart in terms of engineering.

One quick question: what figure does the axe come from?

Once again the vehicle that Berserker turns into was on set briefly.

Image

I only ever saw this on Tfw2005 and I can't find the image anymore and yes this is stuff from TLK filming.

Why would Hasbro make two new molds for Berserker as in the one step changer and the deluxe and both of them have that red X which seems kind of random even this model has it on his chest

Image

Before people go like "He was in the trailer!" No he was not that was Hooligan who turns into a Rusty van and uses the Crowbar model as a base and not the Crankcase model like Berserker does.

Thanks for the review, WJ! After reading through this and watching Optibotimus's review I'm actually considering getting this guy. I feel like gluing the arm panels in and tightening the head shouldn't be a huge issue, and Berserker is just begging to be painted. A lot of silver mixed with black all over him should make all those little details pop nicely. I also actually really like the boxy car parts on him, I'm not a huge fan of the new AoE aesthetic that hides all the characters' car parts. Optimus is still my only must buy, but Berserker is climbing up there a little. Can't wait to pick up a Prime on Monday!

It was definately the predator head con i saw in the trailer. You get a clear slow mo shot of it.

I'd like to see some comparison to his dotm figure.


Also, i find it humorous the voyagers for wave 1 and 2 are the same characters in the same order as aoe. Again, uk will probably skip hound and galvmegatron until the following year, if aat all. Lol. But that's ok, prime is the only one i want.

Our friends over at TFW2005 have been able to find out more information about the glyphs we've been seeing on figures and instructions sheets across the Transformers: The Last Knight toyline, and may have confirmed a retailer exclusive (probably Toys'R'Us again, which is not good news internationally) sub-line for the movie toys: Mission to Cybertron.

The site was able to screencap instructions of a Glyph Decoder, then immediately taken down by Hasbro, then more 'decodable glyphs' appeared on the likes of Skullitron, Nitro and Megatron, and Infernocus and Quintessa. Now, fallen-revenge has found a promotional banner for Mission to Cybertron at a Toys'R'Us store in the US, making the speculation just that little more concrete! Check it out below, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub.

I never noticed that red X on Berserker's chest before... it kinda looks like a 7-year-old took a red pen to him :lol:

If your talking about the "dread" in the trailer that is not Berserker it's Hooligan since he has rusty van parts and Crowbar's head which is not the same.

So no its not the "predator" con when I get access to my computer later I can link the pictures of him which shows that Berserker is in none of the shots.

Some further leaks for our regular friends on Weibo bring us some more artwork for the Transformers: The Last Knight packaging - and we get a new look at Hot Rod, plus Bumblebee, and an expanded version of the Megatron vs Optimus Prime we saw here.

Two characters per mock-up may very well indicate two packs, as teased in the Cybertron 2 Pack Deluxe listings seen back here, in combination with the Mission to Cybertron news from earlier today. In any case, take a look below, and join the conversation in the Energon Pub!

Ok, so that head on Optimus looks a wee bit toooooooo big in that first poster.

2nd, Will, your reviews are having the opposite effects that you are writing about. I wanted Barricade, and then I wanted Beserker and then decided to not get him, but then your review made me want him again. He looks cool, I love the details on him, and his head and chest are awesome

My apologies. I paused the trailer and studied who i was thinking of. Definately not beserker. Or crowbar. Or anyone else I recognise. It was the group Prime beheads at the end of the trailer who I was thinking of. It looked like he had th shoulder spikes too but pausing it, I can see its completely different.

Okay, with artwork like this, can there really be room for any more doubt that the big planet thing attacking Earth in the trailer is Cybertron?

Speculation here but perhaphs the honey comb stuff is a "cage" to keep Cybertron under check or something regardless if it's "alive" or something is controlling it.

Then again besides the first bit of DOTM and the Tf 2007 flashback scene we don't see much of Cybertron's surface and we never seen it's underground areas.

It's probably smaller because getting half the planet torn apart at the end of DOTM probably made the planet half size.
