Via the Facebook page for Ozformers, we now have confirmation of the Transformers: The Last Knight toys also arriving in Australia! The two images below show the Titan Changers Bumblebee and Optimus Prime, and the whole of wave 1 Voyagers and Deluxes too - check it out, along with some commentary on the sighting!

As always, if you come across any new (or old) toys near you, make sure to flag them up in the Sightings Database and Forums, to help out fellow collectors and fans - with only four days left for the official street date for these, all we have left to say is: happy hunting!

The Movie toys are now officially here, and the first ones have just been found today at some Kmarts in Sydney... just 3 days before the official release date (expect most stores to hold onto them until Monday).
So far found are the Titan Changers Optimus and Bumblebee (which leaked to a Toyworld store in February by mistake), but expect the full onslaught of wave 1 Deluxe, Voyager, Legions, Knight Armor Turbo Changers, 1-step Turbo Changers, the Tiny Turbo Changers... and maybe some others.

As we already stated, Valvoline has a promotional caompaign in the US featuring an exclusive toy called Valvotron. We now know the details on how to get this figure. What you need to do is buy 5 quarts of any Valvoline Full Synthetic Motor Oil and then upload your receipt on the website getvalvotron.com (which is not live yet). Then you can get this toy for free. There is a limit of 2 per person. This info comes from Driftx3, a user at TFW2005, who took an image of the promotional campaign details.

Once again via Weibo, we have a look at what may or may not be packaging art - but art nonetheless - featuring Optimus Prime and Megatron in battle, with the hive pattern behind them as a blue planet takes over the background. We don't want to speculate too much, but we are still waiting to find out more about a certain Cybertron Planet listing we saw a long while back.

Check it out and let us know what you think!

That arm cannon kibble chunk is massive, hope it's removable in the very likely scenario that the figures qc is sh|t and the pins aren't tight enough to hold up the arm (like a certain black shadow figure I was so looking forward to)

They're close enough to the cockpit kibble to have me worried the best figure in the line is going to have problems I can't fix :-s

Can you buy the oil, get the figure, then return the oil?

Exactly, if Deadput doesnt want to get into arguments he's not looking for, he shouldnt be arguing about something unrelated.

@ Deadput, in light of this, your argument about black vs dark blue looks like arguing for the sake of it. Which is exactly what you wanted to avoid. Just go back and read what you quoted. If what you want to say has nothing to do with it, then dont quote it and you wont enter unecesarry arguments. Remember that for next time please.


Why the hell can I not just simply say that a character had blue armor and not black and leave it at that without joining the debate they were having about Blurr.

I did not want to talk about Blurr I wanted to correct Sabr saying that Drift's armor was black when it was not.

Like how is this so difficult for me to explain?

Is that a new headsculpt on TLK Drift? The chin area looks different. I didn't notice the big difference in the car modes til now and why it ends up changing the transformation slightly. I do wonder if the backpack can be raised on the new figure to match the old. If nothing else the backpack works great for holding the unused swords and looks cool doing it.


It is, and it looks almost as glorious as the AoE voyager's head sculpt. I LOVE IT WITH A PASSION.

And yeah, I really hope you're not forced to have his backpack like a dumb cape like with Barricade.

Probably some d*** with no love for samurais or HONOR! :|

...or the face terrified them the whole time and they just wanted to hurry up and stop touching it.

Does anyone think that it is possible they will release the voyagers of both Optimus and Megatron for this set? Just a thought.

Or maybe a Platicum edition set, but it's normally assumed now that box sets are for a current line rather than an ongoing like Platinum.

I could dig a Optimus and Megatron voyager set.

I like the voyager prime, but I'm going to wait for TT's inevitable upgrades and black knight versions, no point in getting one of hasbro's lame deco's
