Confirming most of the news we have been reporting since the first sightings (such as this one), Transformers: The Last Knight toys are not technically supposed to be sold in stores until 24th April - but can still be displayed, as shown by latest sightings in the Kmart of Farmingville, Long Island by fellow Seibertronian Scottimus Prime. Among the usual Voyagers and Deluxes, we also have the first sighting on here of the Turbo Changer Bumblebee, along with wave-mate Optimus Prime.

If you come across any new figures, from this or other Transformers lines, make sure to help out the community by noting it in the Sightings Database, and in the regional [url]forums[/url]. In the meantime, check out the images below!

We have a video review of Knight Armor Turbo Changer Optimus from Transformers: The Last Knight. We now know this will be available as part of the first wave of toys hitting everywhere the 24th of April. The video shows you the transformation and the helmet gimmick at work.

Enjoy!

The only thing that ran through my mind while watching was, "as you can seeee I am an eeeemoji" :lol: but this does look infinitely better than the AoE shelfwarmer 1step formers

EDIT: Just realized I accidentally put this in the wrong thread. My apologies. :BANG_HEAD:

Visited a Toys R Us in Evansville, IN and found the new Legends class figures.



They were selling them for 9.99 a piece.

They also had the Tiny Turbo Changers. Forgot to check the price, though.

Why don't you enlighten us with your opinion on a toy?


Say, this next post.

Alrighty then.

I'm actually looking forward to this line quite a bit. I really hope they don't pull an AoE and make all the good toys TRU exclusive in the UK though. Voyager (or Leader) Megatron is probably my number 1 want, though from what little we've seen of him Nitro looks great too. Barricade and Berserker both look awesome but I wish they were better painted. I kinda want the new Drift and an AoE Drift to go with him as a kind of "Red Oni, Blue Oni" pair (need to come up with new names and identities).

If you thought there weren't enough The Last Knight Megatron toys, we have one more for you. This Titan Changer Megatron toy has been revealed by Hasbro's Middle-East division. This is a 12″ toy that transforms from robot to jet in 5 Steps.
While below you will find the very first image of this toy, we did know we were getting this figure since February when Hasbro had given us all their product descriptions. The excerpt can be found below, along with the specific bio for this toy. The photos and bio were brought to light by TFW2005.

[quote]TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT TITAN CHANGERS Assortment
(Ages 6 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $14.99/Available: Fall 2017)

The action in the new TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT movie is big, and this assortment of TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT TITAN CHANGERS. The big, 12-inch figures feature transitions from bot to alt mode, converting between modes in 2-5 steps. The assortment features many fan-favorite characters from the movie, including OPTIMUS PRIME, BUMBLEBEE and MEGATRON. Available at most major retailers and on HasbroToyShop.com.[/quote]

[quote]Item Code: C0885
Dimensions (DxWxH in mm): 5.7×14.6×30.5

Bio

“Experience the thrill of the epic battle between Autobots and Decepticons with this Titan Changers figure that delivers the converting Transformers play kids love. This big, 12-inch scale Megatron figure switches from robot to jet mode in 5 exciting steps. In the explosive Transformers: The Last Knight movie, new evil will rise in an epic struggle where the fate of Earth hangs in the balance. Megatron is the true nemesis of Optimus Prime and his fight to protect the humans. Revived yet again, the ruthless Decepticon leader pursues his ultimate mission to restore Cybertron under his rule.”[/quote]

Speaking of that new Drift, anyone know whether some of the photos were mis-transformed, or does his vehicle kibble really hang down all the way past his knees? I've probably said this before, but the paint apps on his chest all severely lacking, and if his kibble really is like that then that's pretty much the final nail in the coffin for me.

In other Transformers: The Last Knight toy news, we have a video review for two one-step figures, or Turbo Changers as they're known now, via fellow Seibertronian chuckdawg1999. You can check out the embedded video below, including some thoughts on the figures, and join the conversation in the Energon Pub!

[quote] The One Step changers are back as Turbo Changers. Hound and Barricade are the only new molds in wave 1 and they're fun. Barricade is the shining star and features a rotating wrist gun, gotta love the extra play value. Definitely fun and make great desk toys, worth a pickup.[/quote]

Megatron's master plan to destroy the Autobots once and for all was thwarted upon realizing he could not bend his elbows or knees.

Drift is a re-tool / re-shell of his AOE toy. So its safe to say his car kibble should fold up and peg to his back.



However, since I do not believe we've actually seen his back directly, its hard to say.

My money is on mistransformation though.
