Seibertronian ToaLeePrime has pointed us in the direction of some new video reviews courtesy of Youtuber SoundWaveMan showing off the new The Last Knight wave 2 deluxe figures Drift and Sqweeks! Drift is a reshell of his Age of Extinction deluxe, but includes a new faux chest and the vehicle shell is now reversed. Sqweeks is an all new mold that appears to be the live action take of a character that combines Robots in Disguise Fixit, Beast Machines Rattrap, R2D2, and maybe a few more interesting little characters running around on wheels. Sqweeks is especially interesting seeing as how he is 2 parts, with a trailer that turns into a combat deck and a missile launching backpack for Sqweeks, and it even includes his giant gun and extra hand.

Check out the reviews below, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!

Sqweeks may be very simple and strange, but he does look like loads of fun!

Argos have TLK figures listed now in their ammendmum catalogue thingy.

I did try to buy Sqweeks but he wasn't in stock. Some errors with this page though. That's certainly not TLK Voyager Optimus Prime. And I don't think that's the right size Megatron toy shown with the Legion pricing though would be awesome if I could get that actual Megatron for that low a price. P

Jesus. Argos has had some craptacular stock images before, but that takes the cake. It's obviously DotM Voyager Prime, except...did they use a knockoff image from AliExpress or something? The sword and shield are neat though.

So I'm not being forgetful in that I can't remember an official version of that mold in that colour layout and with those weapons?

Indeed you're not. That's either a massively botched image from Hasbro or a KO.

Or a new redeco... Lemme check a certain KO site and I'll get back to you.

:EDIT: Well, nothing yet. Besides I find unlikely KO companies would send stock images like that.

I'll take "previously undisclosed repaint" for 500 Alex.

With all the other repaints in TLK, It's not surprising we'd get one more of the DOTM Voyager Prime.

It looks cool though. Not a very cop colour but very much a Decepticon colour :)

Tell you what, the pictures and videos don't do the paint work on these figures justice. This Barricade has a lot of paint apps, but it's all hard to tell without holding him because it's black and navy blue. But he is sweet, and that did turn out pretty well with the colors!

and not kidding, this is the good Barricade I have wanted. Can't wait to get Bee to fight him and the 2 Megatron's to fight my 2 Primes!

I mean hey, who's to say police cars aren't purple on Cybertron?

Sending out a warning for everyone with Prime: Be careful of the sword storage in truck mode. Mine just got jammed up and basically snapped in half minus a few plastic strands holding it together

Really disappointed with Drift's lack of paint apps. Really, this figure would probably look great with just a few more black and gold bits on the chest/torso area, but no. Has/Tak cheaped out, again. I mean really, nothing is new save the car shell and chest, it could not have cost that much to put some decent paint on him. He looks like a guy skinned all the way to the muscle, with a flattened car thrown onto his back.

If anyone wants to get the Deluxes and Voyagers for cheaper than normal check out your Walmart. The one near me is selling them for $16 and $27 respectively. They only had Prime and Grimlock. I considered Prime but I restrained. If they had Barricade I probably would've got him but no dice.

That's how my Walmart was. Target had them at the $20 and $30 points and TRU didn't have them out yet cause street date of next Friday

With the launch of the Transformers: The Last Knight toyline, there have been plenty of awesome events going on around the world to celebrate the new movie. Well, thanks to the Unión Cultural Mexicana de Fans de Transformers Facebook, we can tell you that Mexico also got in on the fun! The first event, held in a Walmart parking lot, featured an animatronic Optimus Prime, complete with purple eyes, Souvenirs, toys, and prizes to be given out. It even included some cars based on the characters in The Last Knight, with Hot Rod, Bumblebee, Barricade, and Crosshairs being represented by unofficial cars that come close to duplicating their on-screen alternate modes.

Check out the images below, and if you live in Mexico: follow their Facebook. This set will be traveling around the country to set up and celebrate the new movie!

As news team member, I am intrigued. Are we sure this is a mistake and not a surprise reveal of an upcoming redeco?
