After the initial official images of the upcoming Transformers Bumblebee Movie toyline figures - including some Studio Series items, of course - we now also have some additional angles to both the truck mode and the robot mode of the leader (?) class Optimus Prime Legendary Version from Takara Tomy, which we dissected a while back during Wonderfest 2018.

BB-02 Legendary Optimus Prime is a complete new mold based on the Age of Extinction Voyager Evasion Mode Optimus Prime, with several new features, colors and parts, including some chrome. Currently listed at 6800 Yen ($61.24 at the time of writing), for a Japan release of October 2018 with still no official channel for a release outside of that market. Check out the turnaround images mirrored below, and join the discussion on Seibertron.com!

There's a way to import this. Amiami and hobbysearch. Sold out already at the former.

That Optimus is fine and all, but I'll only get it if I find it live in store and on sale.

I will pre-order it on amazon japan when it goes up because i don't want to be stuck with my only option being e-bay for 200$ next year

It all depend on your want level. If you WANT it, you better pre-order it. Better safe than sorry.
But my want level for what is basically more of the same (IMO) is rock-bottom. That's why I'm more likely to pass if it's indeed just a Takara exclusive.

It's too big to go with Studio Series but I'd like to see it reecored and done up in movie Prime's traditonal flamey colour scheme and that might tempt me to buy it.

Might be a better fit within the normal bumblebee movie toyline. He does look like a fun toy but I'm happy enough to sit this one out. :)

Yeah. Hm, dunno why i typed 'reecored'. I think I meant recoloured or redecoed and got some nonsensical mixture.:P

AmiAmi stealthily put their pre-order up without it going on the front page and it's already sold out. I really want this, but October is already pretty expensive thanks to MP Cordon and a few other non-transformers stuff.

Here is that amazon preorder i was talking about but its worrying that it doesnt ship outside japan

Since the Bumblebee movie is on the horizon, you can guess that there would be a lot of merchandise and exclusives. For Bumblebee, we have the Greatest Hits, a subline exclusive to Target stores. There are only two known exclusives, Soundwave with Doombox and the Bumblebee Cassette Pack (Howlback, Frenzy, Buzzsaw, Bumblebee). Well there are finally stock photos of these guys!

Soundwave comes from a listing from sponsor Robot Kingdom and Japanese website Red Mercury. The Bumblebee Cassette Pack also comes from Red Mercury. The Robot Kingdom listing gives us a date of September 28th so we should not expect to see these items before then at Target, the exclusive retailer in the US.

Soundwave:

While these stock photo's are a bit blurry, they show us off their box and the figure, but Soundwave's base mode cannot be seen from these photos. It also for some reason shows the base connectors separate from the actual figure, despite them being permanently attached.

So what do you think? Let us know in the Pub forums below!

Thanks for the link. It's not working for me either but that can change any minute

I'm looking forward to these sets. I missed the Titans Return Leader Soundwave, and I've been holding off on getting Rumble to see if they were going to make Frenzy. Now I just gotta hope these guys are gonna be decently priced because... I really don't need a one-step changer, but I'm willing to pay like $30 for three legends class figures. I do sorta wish they had done a separate set for the cassettes themselves, and not included a one-step changer and also maybe did a retool to turn the Laserbeak/Buzzsaw mold into a Ratbat maybe, but I'm fine with it as is

Those connectors come off very easily and go back on, not permanent by a long shot.

I can't wait for Rumble to get his buddy to hang out with.

Yess, Rumble!

I've been waiting for him to be made, but they didn't in Titans Return. But now I finally get my Rumble!
The classics was okay but had a lot of kibble. This Titans Return mold is perfect and very simple.

Didn't we get a Buzzsaw at the very end of combiner wars? It was a preview of Titans Return?
