Youtuber Chefatron has a review of the Walmart exclusive Transformers: The Last Knight deluxe Hot Rod. It confirms that he indeed does not come with any weapons. This review is far from ideal though since the comparison of the robot mode to Lockdown's is done with Lockdown still in his box. Still, we have a great series of photos showing all comparisons to both toys if that is what you are seeking.

I feel like a lot of the TLK have a cheap look, especially the one steps and legions. Do you guys think it's the same as previous movie lines or is it worse in this regard


I think this guy got the really short end of the stick:

There is a bumblebee deluxe variant which has more black paint in the alt mode

And Maverick Prime sent us the video first through e-mail, which is our default channel of news submission, so he got the credit. We can only give a news credit to one person at a time.

I didn't know about that Bumblebee variation - i;ll have to check to see which is the most Movie accurate (relatively speaking since it's the wrong body) but in general terms - it's interesting though as both of them are different to the AOE deluxe stripe pattern.

-------

Also Just a little heads up there is a Knock off TLK Megatron Voyager out already - if buying one on eBay - check carefully.

I'm saying this here for warning purposes and as NO ONE ever reads the KO threads so If I say it there no one would ever see it.

Wouldn't tlk wave 3 have been better if it had consisted of slug strafe slash aoe repaint bee Voyager grimlock and scorn.

And all the good stuff in waves 1 and 2 so we could already have wave 2 out

Thanks to Seibertronian AzT, we have a new sighting for the Mission to Cybertron 2-packs of legion class figures. The figures were found at a Toys R Us in San Diego, California and were retailing at $15.00. The 2-packs consisted of Optimus with Grimlock, and Megatron with Bumblebee. With the movie upon us like some vast predatory bird, the toys are sure to be hot, so keep looking out for the new figures, report your sightings, show off your new figures, and get movie hyped!

Remember those slightly blurry images of the first leak of The Last Knight's Infernocus combiner set? Courtesy of Toys "R" Us Singapore, we now have official stock images of the Infernocons and Quintessa! These images give us our first good look at the individual Infernocons that make up the beastly Infernocus. As a reminder, the limbs of Infernocus (Rupture, Thrash, Gorge, and Glug) are redecoes of the Prime: Beast Hunters Abominus limbs (Windrazor, Twinstrike, Blot, and Rippersnapper, respectively), while Hun-Gurr is replaced by the set's sole new mold, Skulk.









Additionally, we have new images of Cybertron (a luminescent redeco of Cybertron Primus that gives Generation 2 a run for it's money) as well from the same source, which can be viewed below.

Infernocus: looks amazing, instant buy on sight.

Primus: since when is a split in half planner with guns on the back a starship mode?

Dear God That set looks cool I love how they all look that were forged from the depths of a Volcano and look like Fire Demi-Gods the deco really reflects that it's so nice to see a good some good legion repaints after the flop that was TLK legion wave 1 :D not to discount Skulk in any way though. Skulk looks freaking awesome he looks like the Grim Reaper cross RID Twinferno cross Fire God But it does kinda suck he's got no alt mode :-x

He does, the torso. Its enough of an alt mode for most Power Ranger or Voltron toys. He just so happens not to be a triple changer unlike the others. But yeah I know what you mean.

in transformers fandom, a torso mdoe isn't considered as a real alt mode.
i honestly not too big on infernocus. i get the appeal and why many people would love him, just that it doesn't work that well on me. this combiner finally has a coherent color throughout, compared to the other variants, which is a good thing, and the fact that they give him new mold for the torso bot. but the fact that the torso bot don't have actual alt mode bummed me, especially when all the limb guys did. it just feels incomplete. therefore, i don't think i will pick him up.

but then again, i've been wrong many times before, and ended up picking up things that i said i won't, so, who knows.

Hasbro forgot to show the new torso bot´s alt mode...

Primus looks great in those colors. But the price blows. Nobody buy one so TRU puts him on clearance...

just picked up berserker and he is awesome in robot mode. Mine appears to have stress marks on the shoulders right out of the box. I could be wrong and I'll try to get a pic up in the morning just wondering if this has happened with anyone else's copy.

Not to mention all those blatant hack job brush strokes all over the armor. It's a total garbage paint job. It's shockingly bad actually.



I think that's the point.

He's supposed to be old, rusted, and decayed. The entire point is he looks damaged. Its intentional. This is also an extreme closeup. In reality the paint on the face should probably look fine to naked eye, disfigured sure, but that's the point.

It gets across the disfigurement he's suffered. He's not supposed to have a nice pristine face.

You can suspend disbelief and pretend all day long about anything you want it to be but nothing changes the fact that its a terrible paint job. Not just on the face but on the armor as well.That sloppy mess of a ham handed attempt at paint application destroys any of the details designed into the head sculpt with big fat blobs of green paint. At the price they're asking these days for these figures i'd expect a lot more effort into the details. It looks more like cheap dollar store knock off garbage.
