With the launch of the Transformers: The Last Knight toyline, there have been plenty of awesome events going on around the world to celebrate the new movie. Well, thanks to the UniĆ³n Cultural Mexicana de Fans de Transformers Facebook, we can tell you that Mexico also got in on the fun! The first event, held in a Walmart parking lot, featured an animatronic Optimus Prime, complete with purple eyes, Souvenirs, toys, and prizes to be given out. It even included some cars based on the characters in The Last Knight, with Hot Rod, Bumblebee, Barricade, and Crosshairs being represented by unofficial cars that come close to duplicating their on-screen alternate modes.

Check out the images below, and if you live in Mexico: follow their Facebook. This set will be traveling around the country to set up and celebrate the new movie!

As news team member, I am intrigued. Are we sure this is a mistake and not a surprise reveal of an upcoming redeco?

I feel it's very possible it's an exclusive. Not a very good one, but an exclusive nonetheless.

Oh, well make sure you quote where it comes from. I was confused as hell as to what you were talking about.

And I doubt this is some sort of upcoming figure. the thing has voyager Megs pictures as a legion class figure. It's just wack

Easy mistake to make with multiple figures name "Megatron" in the line. Same for "Optimus Prime" ;)

FINALLY found some TLK toys at my local TRU, but they didn't have Slash or deluxe Barricade, but they did have baby barricade, so I bought him in a heart beat. I couldn't leave empty handed! And he's a stellar little figure, but he's not barricade. The face, the body style, it just doesn't work, Plus I fully intend to get Deluxe Barricade. So, what to do? I thought about using him just as aligned Prowl (as he IS smokescreen, after all) but the gleaming :CON: makes that a bit hard, so I give you...

Image

Roadblock (ha), Barricade's annoyingly dedicated tiny deputy that always wants to tag along on patrols.

Plus he can do the smooth criminal!!! :x :x

Forgot I have that mold in my box of figures I don't particularly need to keep. :)

Maybe mine here is Smokescreen before obsessing about Barricade enough to turn into your 'Roadblock'.

It's Monday morning, a week after the street date, and Walmart still doesn't have anything, not even shelf space set aside to put them on. :roll:

BTW, I doubt a knockoff Optimus Prime would have such intricate flame work or leave the clear panels intact on the top of the truck hood and roof. Very strange looking figure, and a strange choice to go with DotM (why not Evasion Prime or the new Voyager?). The way it's painted almost makes it look like it's being shot back into the Earth's atmosphere from space.

The New Optimus Sword and shield is interesting even if the deco isn't especially tasteful.

That is an awesome idea! Neat, and a little bad-guy deputy never hurt anyone!

Now I'm going to need to do this with my Smokescreen

So I as had a zillion transformers as kids and just now got back into collecting them now that my kids are old enough to have fun with them. Somehow I dropped like $100 bucks on them on impulse over the weekend, lol.

In the past, what was the time frame for the next wave of figures up to the movie release? I'm guessing (hoping) the next wave would be in May sometime then the rest to coincide with the film release?

Some websites state the date of the next wave sometime in May.

First, WELCOME!

Second, if you are new to collecting and love the Movie lines, try out your local online classified. You can have LOADS of bayformers for cheap. ;)^

Thanks to Seibertronian Fc203 we have a new Transformers: The Last Knight commercial, featuring Armor Knight Bumblebee! The commercial shown was video recorded, but still captures the commercial pretty well. It features Bumblebee in a stylish-car-commercial type of video, showing off his vehicle mode from different angles with different lighting before going to bot mode. Armor Knight Optimus Prime also appears at the end. This video comes courtesy of Fc203 on youtube and can be viewed below for your pleasure! Let us know what you think of it in the comments section below!

Will Voyager Megatron, Hound, and deluxe Skweeks come out soon, or will they come out at the same time as the movie this summer?

Those 3 are the ones I want the most.

Sometime in May was said for Wave 2. I'd like those three as well.

I really want Sqweeks as well. It'll be interesting to compare the distribution of these upcoming waves to Generations/TR. Will they be better distributed because they're movie toys and they have priority and they're truly how Hasbro makes it's money?

Goldstreak. Groovy.
