After a Chinese review appeared a while back, we now have an Anglophone version of a good look at Transformers: The Last Knight Leader class Megatron - courtesy of smsno1 on YouTube, and what I can only call New Toy Joy. Check out the video embedded below, and let us know what you think of the new toy for the Decepticon leader!

Those gaps in his forearms are terrible. It's amazing that the voyager got the arms right but the leader couldn't.

Yeah, this movie line is just too damn expensive to bother collecting. Not to mention i don't like any of the designs or aesthetics. It just is insulting how a movie deluxe is nearly 10 dollars more than what they are in the other lines.

EDIT: That leader class Megatron is tempting though......

So Dragonstorm is a combiner...

What if it turns out he is the medieval alt.mode for Skids and Mudflap?

Same principle it looks like. But canonically speaking they're killed off in DotM. So no individual dragon modes.

Well, My point still stand I guess.
40$ or 45$CAN should be the max this set should cost. Just wait for a sale or clearance.

Toys R Us will probably put these on clearance over here as well, the legion packs aren't moving at all because why would a parent want to buy a kid a legion 2-pack that's $30 when you can get 4 of them for $30 with worse paint jobs but why would a kid care about the paint-job. I don't know why Hasbro would make them more expensive...

even then, I doubt clearance will make the price any better. That Butterscoth TOHG Prime was clearanced to %70 and I still found that too pricey. I remember getting the TRU Exclusive Evolution Optimus pack for the last film with 2 voyagers with premium decos for $50. I didnt mind paying full price for that, it sounded totally fair.

Wow...they didn't even seem to change that one. The one that I've seen with Grimlock in stores though looks better than the original.

Yeah, it's pretty pathetic. TLK seems to have a very weird division - it's either good-looking new molds or old molds with barely a dollop of paint. All the effort in one area leaving none for the other.

Even then, I wouldnt call this a great looking new mold

And both Berserker and Barricade are far from being phenominal.

Is it the same design team as the one for AoE? The "new team" that took over a couple years back?

Yes it is, its the John Warden team. But to be fair, there is very little Hasbro does this time for dsign. They confirmed that for this film, the technical drawings are from the movie department in time for toy production and its Takara who then figures out how to get from one mode to the next.

It seems that exclusive red poke-a-dot Voyager Optimus we previously saw is part of a larger exclusive subline.

Big W has listed an exclusive six pack of one step Turbo figures which we previously heard of in the Australia exclusives list. This is actually one of the few exclusives that will be made available in most of the world's regions (though various retailers). Since it s not a Walmart Exclusive, Hot Rod is not part of this mix of figures. Instead we have Grimlock, Optimus, Bumblebee, Megatron, Barricade and Hound, all with new red spotted decos to simulate the red decoder gimmick which reveals a message when you use clear red plastic. Speaking of which, this set also comes with new clear red weapons to help you reveal what is written on Barricade's hood or Bumblebee's belly. This is supposedly a target exclusive in the US.

And here is that Optimus for those who wanted a quick recap.

Target exclusive? That makes sense, Walmart has Hot Rod, Toys R' Us has the Cyberglyphs, and now Target has the decoders. I already know what one of the messages is gonna be:

Be sure to drink your Ovaltine buy Hasbro toys
