TakaraTomy has posted on their website with the latest info on exclusive Transformers: The Last Knight giveaways! The first giveaway is the silver Temenos Sword, which will be exclusive to ToysRus stores in Japan.

Optimus Prime's Age Of Extinction shield will also be a giveaway item later in the Summer. If you are lucky enough to get one of these swords make sure you keep the ticket that comes with it. Those who do will be able to obtain a "Clear File" which is a clear plastic file folder featuring Transformers artwork on it.

In the Fall Optimus' Dark of the Moon axe will become a promotional item, a bonus for those who got the shield. Make sure to keep those tickets someplace safe so you won't miss out!

Unfortunately, these giveaways are only for Japan. If you live in the US the new Transformers The Last Knight toys will hit stores Monday, April 24th!

Well, this is it. The TAKARA 1-steps are exactly the same POS as the Hasbro ones:

Hound:
http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10444508

Barricade:
http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10444507

Optimus:
http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10444506

Bumblebee:
http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10444505

They are pretty much the same price as the US or Canada. That's not counting shipping, obviously.

Sigh... Guess I'll wait for a clearance sale for Hound.

Fellow Seibertronian -Kanrabat- has spotted four new figures from the upcoming live-action movie Transformers: The Last Knight over on 1999.co.jp, as part of the related Takara Tomy line of toys. Where Hasbro has One-Step Changers, we now see the Speed Change TLK-06 Bumblebee, TLK-07 Optimus Prime, TLK-08 Hound and TLK-09 Barricade!

Check out images below of the two modes and the transformation sequence, and let us know what you think of this initial Japanese offering in their striking similarity to the Hasbro version of the same toys.

It's still a bit hilarious and sad how little paint these guys have. Takara = Hasbro here

That's usually the case with the initial waves. It's a bit later down the line that TakaraTomy offers "premium decos".

But their AOE line had different/superior decos to Hasbro's from the get go.
It looks like they are going back to the method of the first film where both companies released the same toys.

Some of the movie 1 toys had differences between the Hasbro and Takara versions. Most notably the normal Leader class Optimus Prime toy.

Some, sure. But not most. Which was totally reversed for AOE.

The first few waves were generally speaking identical. It's the later redecos and retoolings that sported the differences from what I can tell. AoE and Lost Age were exceptions, I'll give you that.

Thanks to the Transformers Never Die Facebook Page we have some new images of the upcoming wave 1 figures from Takara's The Last Knight toyline. The 5 figures in wave 1 are Deluxe Bumblebee, Barricade, Berserker, and Slash, along with voyager Grimlock. The figures deco differs only slightly from their Hasbro counterparts, which have started to show up across the world. Check out the Takara packaging images, or their stickers, at least, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!

Holy SHIT!

Its 2007 all over again with how japan is releasing the same exact toy package and all with a sticker for the japanese text. I didnt think we would get back to that. And I didnt know that meant we were seeing the final packaging at the Tokyo toy show.

Well, technically, since Takara did the engineering on these toys and its the same deco for takara, all of us who own any The last Knight figure now owns a Takara toy and vice versa.

I just don't get how Takara can be ok releasing that Bumblebee redeco. Bad enough for Hasbro but Takara who usually go the extra mile? May as well have re-released the far more beautiful AoE version where the Hasbro version was good, the Takara version even better and both far lovelier than this TLK release.

Anyone else notice that the Japanese logo for the movie doesn't have any Katakana in its subheading?

Of the previous four films, all three of the sequels were given different names from the English ones for their respective Japanese releases, but whose subheadings were all still foreign word names rendered in Katakana:

ROTF: トランスフォーマー リベンジ Toransufōmā Ribenji, "Transformers: Revenge"
DOTM:トランスフォーマー ダークサイド・ムーン Toransufōmā Dākusaido Mūn, "Transformers: Darkside Moon"
AOE:トランスフォーマー ロストエイジ Toransufōmā Rosuto Eiji, "Transformers: Lost Age"

Here, however, the title's subheading is instead rendered in Kanji (along with a の Hiragana):

トランスフォーマー最後の騎士王 Toransufōmā Saigo no Kishi-ō, which means "Transformers: The Last Knight King"

This sounds to me like it could give a bit more context as to who the titular knight is. He's not just a knight, but the king of the knights.

Well dang, that looks near perfect as far as this mold goes! I'd hope there'll be a way to get him stateside, but I doubt he'll come cheap.
