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.

Have you been hunting for the new Transformers The Last Knight toys? Well, we.can make that search a bit easier today because the Voyagers, Deluxes, One steps, and more are now in stock at Hasbro Toy Shop's website! It seems that they are available to purchase, and not just placeholder listings, but that may change. Let us know if you'll be placing an order!

I'm still just hoping I can find what I want at Target tomorrow. Considering lately when Hasbro releases stuff (Star Wars and I've noticed Marvel especially) there's a release of several figure lines/waves on the same day - Marvel Legends X-Men and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 were released at the same time a month or so ago. My that logic (and I'm completely prepared to be wrong) since Last Knight stuff is released tomorrow and Titans Return and Last Knight preorders finally hit BBTS estimated for tomorrow we might actually finally get TR wave 4 too. That's what I'm counting on, anyway.

I knew they were going with more expensive pricing with these new figures, but $20 for deluxes and $30 for Voyagers, with no apparent rise in quality or paint apps/deco is a no go for me. I get that materials don't cost the same forever and ever, but a jump that high is a jump TOO high. Not when TR figures were $15 at retail.

Seriously? That sucks big time. Up in Oregon I've found all my TR deluxes at $15.30 or so, I have no clue why it's not the same everywhere.

What makes it even better is that they only restock wave 3 and the first deluxe I find per wave is the one they always have the most of.

HTS has Titans Return for about 16 bucks. Thought with shipping it probably evens out to those California prices. From what I hear California has some inflation especially in Metro areas.

Sounds about right. Hot Rod is the one I see most often but Twinferno is right behind him. I only got/wanted Hot Rod and Triggerhappy, so waiting for wave 4 has been torture - I want 3/5 of those guys.

Maybe we should switch threads if you want to talk about Titans Return stuff more.

Good idea, but I'll leave you with this. The reason twonfwrno peg warms is because he has little customization potential, over packing, and spotty QC, not to mention the bland color scheme for younger audiences looking at him at a store. I'm guessing this will happen with wave 1 bee and slash, especially since you can't even generic army build unlike Berserker and to a lesser extent, Barricade. (Also in cal TLK deluxes are $21 and I don't want to know how much voyagers are)

I completely agree. I did initially want Twinferno, he looked cool and I'm pretty sure he was on the Lost Light. The bad beast mode pegs and, like you said, dull colors put me off and I bought Triggerhappy instead. I don't regret that one bit.

I think TLK deluxes are supposed to be $20 now unfortunately, and Voyagers $30. I'd guess voyagers will be marked up to maybe $32-33 or so if it's similar to your deluxes, and that just plain sucks. There's a reason (outside of mold reuse) that I'm only buying like 4 of the Last Knight toys.

For all the retailers that were able to stick to the street date embargo for Transformers: The Last Knight, today 24th April 2017 is the official start of movie toy season on plastic figurine hunting grounds! Below, you can find a round-up of the stores (online and brick-and-mortar) which have already shown us where the toys are available.

As always, make sure you flag up toy in the (fully up to date) Sightings Database when you come across them in a store, it really helps other collectors in the area - and don't forget to join the regional discussion threads here!

I've had a tradition since ROTF where I would get the deluxe Bumblebee for the new movie in the first day they came out, but I don't think I can continue that since the wave 1 Bumblebee isn't what he looks like in the movie. I'll wait for the new mold Bumblebee later this year.

Rats, same for me! I'd check later in the day if you can manage though, one of my Targets I called said they had a couple boxes, but they weren't out on the shelf yet. I'm going to recheck mine in a couple hours on my way to Toys R Us. Fred Meyer was even worse, they said they had some new figures but weren't putting them out until tomorrow because they didn't have space on a shelf, and I'm going to go visit my parents out of state tonight! If I get lucky maybe I'll find something over there if I can't get what I want today.

Well since the toys are out, I look forward to people sharing their thoughts. Am I the only one who is unimpressed with these?

There are 3 new molds in wave 1 (in terms of non gimmick toys) and in order of best to worst I would say:

Voyager Optimus Prime
Deluxe Berserker
Deluxe Barricade

We've got more to add to the absolute tidal wave that has been TLK toy news today. This time we've got some additional images of everyone's favorite Predator-looking lad, One Step Beserker! Via an Amazon listing for the currently unavailable figure, we have new stock photography as well as confirmation the B-zerk is indeed Gamma Ray, the last placeholder product code name. Other Amazon Listings also confirm that Pluto was one-step Megatron and Lunar eclipse was One Step Grimlock. Check out the new photos below, featuring his slightly more generic, unlicensed vehicle mode!

Soooo... I just returned from my local Toys'R'Us. Here was my experience:

Walking down the aisle, I saw they did in-fact have the Voyagers and Knight Armor Turbo Changers , as well as the voice changer helmet. I grabbed both voyager Optimus and Grimlock, went to the register, and the cashier told me she couldn't sell me them. I was very puzzled. According to Toys'R'Us, they are street dated for June 23rd, the day the movie comes out. I said to her it must be a mistake. She got the attention of the manager, and sure enough, he confirmed in the system it said all of their Last Knight merchandise was street dated for June 23rd. I brought up the post on here and other websites regarding the April 24th street date release, as well as made the argument if everything was street dated for June 23rd... why are all the toys on the shelves ready to sell? The manager agreed it was odd and looked into the matter more. Thankfully, he apologized for the confusion and gave the cashier the okay to sell me both.

It also seems like Target and Wal-Marts still haven't gotten the memo in my area yet either. The Target and Wal-Mart nearest me having nothing Last Knight related. My area being South Florida. Did the street date get pushed back? or is Kremzeek running around causing havok?https://www.seibertron.com/energonpub/posting.php?mode=reply&f=4&t=107247#

Anyone else run into a similar issue?

Thanks for sharing your experience, it is odd. It looks like an error in dates since there have been several TRU stores that show a April 24th street date (mine did) when scanning the box. What is weird to me is that it means the coding of the cash terminals is not centralized. or else everyone would be showing the same date.

Which toys did you buy? and remember to share your thoughts here when you get the chance.

Yep, not a single figure at any Targets in my area (outside of one my friend is checking at for me, but there's a good chance all the Last Knight stuff is gone) or my Toys R Us. Since I'm in a different state tomorrow I figured I'd check my hometown - Target only had Bee left (called a couple hours after they opened) and Toys R Us hadn't opened their boxes yet. They offered to call me back once they did, and I asked them to if they had the voyager Optimus. They finally called after maybe 15 minutes - no Prime. Then they called back again and said they found one. The woman on the phone seemed a bit reluctant - something about hold policy - but said she'd hold onto him for me and I'll do my best to get over there in the morning. I'll take a couple pictures once I (hopefully) open him up.

Today's been a frustrating mess of checking 5 different stores with no luck, I'm glad something went right, even if awkwardly so.

I for one will not be buying a single toy from this line and personally i think everyone should boycott it, these prices are ridiculous and have no justification. Clearly this is hasbro trying to take advantage of its consumer again, it would be one thing if the quality was better but from what ive seen and heard its not. Plus if these sell i guarantee the rest of the other lines will be repriced to match effectively screwing over a lot of people.

Haha, and better yet, several are the exact same toys we have already gotten.

I am still buying them, but at a discount.

Also, boycotting a line could just send the message that TF toys dont sell which could end the line (which was almost the case back in 1993).

So at least by buying at a discount I am sending the message that I will buy your toys, but at a certain price.

My local Toys R Us only had Optimus and Grimlock. I picked up an Optimus, but I was looking forward to seeing Barricade. My area never has shit. I'm centuries ahead of everyone on the planet, but everyone around me is always 5 years behind everyone else. We still never got Titans Return Optimus or Megatron here.

I'm sure with these being widely distributed there will be plenty of sales just as there has been with RID & TR & Rescue Bots in the last year.

I will be getting the toys but not at the initial retail price while i'm waiting for the prices to drop a bit I'll be pondering some Japanese toys and some third party items i'd like to get such as Dream factory's Movie Bonecrusher leaderclass scale toy - which looks gorgeous.

But I recall how AOE Leader Optimus and Grimlock ended up being reduced to something like £16.99 & the First Edition one was out in Clearance places for under £20.00 so I can't see a reason to go running to the store - i'm sure the 1 steps will be on sale pretty quickly in the UK - heck they are on sale price already in America.

Titans Returns Dlx toys are supposed to be £19.99 - yet few stores sell them for that - I suspect the high prices won't last then they can mark them down as 30% or 50% off and be telling the truth about it.

Heck I'm mildly irked with myself for not waiting on TR Soundwave who is now £19.99 Cheaper than a Combiner Wars Skywarp is.

I think they will come down to £15.99 very quickly and then drop again to £12.50 later.

The only problem is sometimes a wave 1 item can be a swine to get cheap as the sales don't hit hard till wave 2 or 3. But usually the Amazon or ebay price has reduced by then so that compensates a lot.

If I find I have a Movie toy itch I can always buy some Wei Jiang Overscale Dinos or That Striker Prime I still don't have one of.

I'm actually much keener to get TR wave 4 anyway.

i dont see the point of griping or boycotting hasbro over the price hike. it isnt the first time this has happened. iirc deluxes used to be $7-10 in 2007 and then up to 15. so why start complaining now. it isnt gonna start a linewide price increase its just because of the movie and its "premier edition."

want cheaper prices go to walmart
they have deluxes for 15.83 and voyagers for 26. something

All four deluxes found in Newcastle, Indiana (the place that never gets anything)
Shockingly the price was only 15.99. For some reason they were still using their codenames.

Besides, going TakaraTomy would only be worse since the differences, if any, are negligible, and you'd have to pay an even higher price to get them.

I think someone mentioned the figures' prices are now on par with similar offerings like from Marvel or DC Comics, coincidentally the general packaging style in the same between them (boxed instead of carded).

can you take a pic, with a deatailed description of how to do it? We could then news it to show all the fans.

Those guys have a super odd distribution though. Something tells me several shipments were either delayed, lost or ignored and rotting somewhere because they didnt appear for long and stores are now moving on to the next wave.

Can confirm the difficulty of the stores around here. They don't have any labels created for the new toys, and they are not expecting a new TF shipment for 2 weeks.
