Twitter user Tagoal
has posted some images of the Transformers: The Last Knight
Optimus Prime Clear Version that was released recently to coincide with TF5's Japanese home video debut! Sporting a lot of clear white and blue plastic, this is the Voyager mold available on shelves now (still) in the Premier Edition. It's kind of a shame that basically every version of this mold looks more appealing than the stock retail release, but even that one is a pretty nice toy in and of itself.

Perfect Effect posted to Facebook to reveal a new deco for their Gorira Jr partner figures designed as weapon accessories for Beast Gorira, the unofficial Optimal Optimus they released previously. Though not closely color-matching, these are shown paired with the Primal Prime redeco of Beast Gorira, and apart from deco seem otherwise unchanged. Plus perhaps simply hoping to confirm expectations, Perfect Effect has confirmed upcoming Perfect Combiner releases will be focused on Power of The Primes. If you've been hoping for upgrades to improve the Dinobots' combined Volcanicus form, you may be in luck soon enough. Keep reading to see the Gorira Jr photos!
You may remember Flame Toys, who came on the scene last year with their first officially licensed Transformers figure, a non-converting high detail figure of Drift. Their second project turned out to be Decepticon Justice Division commander Tarn, and tonight we have a new image of a prototype for that figure, along with a hint that there may be more of it to be seen at Toy Soul 2017 this weekend in Hong Kong. It's possible that at least a hand-painted color sample of Tarn may be shown off, but odds are good either way some form of prototype will be a centerpiece of their exhibit. Keep reading to see the full size teaser image!
The website Time & Space
put up a gallery of images of an interesting new promotion for the AU x Transformers Infobar Optimus Prime figure: a cardboard sculpture of the toy! The intricately designed and assembled sculpture is the work of artist Monami Ohno
, whose work in the medium of cardboard is very impressive indeed- even the logos and numbers on the phone parts are carefully-cut cardboard. Keep reading to see the image!
Generation-Toy has posted a set of photos to Weibo showing off the full set of their Guardian project - unofficial MP-size Protectobots. The team collectively falling under the GT-6 label is shown in basic shots of robot and vehicle together to give a general overview of the design style. Along with a couple of full-team shots, we do get to see the built out Guardian itself, albeit only in flat grey. Presumably colors and more individual figure detail will be forthcoming soon. You can get a look at the team in this early stage right now in the mirrored gallery just below!
Coming to use via Weibo, we have a look at another representative of the unofficial Masterpiece-style Aerialbots competition. This time from Zeta Toys we get to see some detailed looks at Silver Arrow, their Silverbolt, in prototype form. Mostly on display here is the aesthetic and detailing for the robot and jet modes, as little can be seen as far as the actual technical side of the figure as it's presented here. We have previously seen an early build of Zeta's Superion
though which paired with this might offer some clues. Check out all the mirrored images below!
Through a Facebook video, we finally have a look at the retail version of POTP Rodimus Prime, the second toy in the first Leader assortment. Sadly the video itself is probably not worth watching, being both shot in vertical/portrait orientation and being quite low-res. You can find stills taken from the video highlighting key points for a quick look at the toy. We do have the video embedded just below as well, if you're dying to see the toy in action or get an early look at how some of the transformation works. Click through to check it all out!
has posted listings with images for what are most likely the last two Crash Combiner sets! Primelock
(a combination of Optimus Prime & Grimlock) and Saberclaw
(Saberhorn & Bisk) are listed as being available in April 2018 - which is a date connected with a lot of Transformers listings of late. It's tough to say if these will ever show up at US domestic retail, but keep reading to see the images.
Here is a quick update from www.robotkingdom.com.

TaoTaoToys on Weibo has shared two photos showing the outer box for the soon to be released Masterpiece Sunstreaker. MP-39 has its official release date in Japan at the end of this month, so it's not entirely surprising that a few pieces may have found their way out to other channels at this point. The packaging is largely the standard fare with the familiar styling and array of stock imagery we've already seen, but it's good as a start point to get the excitement going for the release in just a couple of weeks' time! Click through to have a look.
Since we heard about TakaraTomy's "Power of Prime" line, we've been speculating that the reduced prices (relative to Legends
series) indicate straight repacks of the US toys. While nothing is 100% certain until we have them in hand... those sure are US toys in the Dengeki Hobby photo gallery we've mirrored here. In particular, Jazz's markings are all 100% identical to the US release in these photos - even if
these are entirely the US-release toys, whether the promised running change will apply to the TakaraTomy release is currently unknown. Good photos though - keep reading to see more!
Happy Weibo Leak Day, I guess? The same Weibo source that brought us the image of the box back panel now has posted images of the upcoming Movie Series Blackout and its accessory Scorponok! The figure is quite impressive looking, and as we learned from the packaging already, boasts a 46-step transformation. Keep reading to see!
Next up on the leaks from Weibo users this morning, "tf-factory"
has also dropped package-back images of Leader Brawl and Megatron from the upcoming movie line! ...but, they've been marked through. Either someone's being an extra-clever leaker, or Hasbro has gone very effectively low-tech in their leak prevention efforts! But if you'd like an unobstructed view of an as-yet unreleased figure we've also mirrored images of Authentics Grimlock here. Keep reading!
So, you may have seen the stock images of Power of the Primes Moonracer
we posted last night.Thanks to Weibo user sometimes identified as "tf-factory"
we have images of the other four Deluxes in Wave 2! Besides Moonracer, Wave 2 will let you complete your Dinobot team (and combiner Volcanicus), 2-bot jet Dreadwing with the addition of Blackwing, and start on your Terrorcon collection with Rippersnapper! Keep reading to see.
A user on Weibo has shared out a partial image of the back of box for an upcoming Blackout toy. What is presumed to be a Leader Class figure from the recently-named 'Studio Series' lineup as revealed via Toys R Us inventory data can be seen (in typical CG render style) in both robot and vehicle modes, and includes a small scorpion mode Scorponok partner figure just as the original Voyager Class Blackout did way back in the 2007 movie line. Little specifics can be discerned, but we do get to see the call-out for a 46 step transformation process, to which we can say only: Yikes! Click through to view the full size image.
Following on from the store inventory data reveal this morning, we're now able to bring you high-res retailer stock images of Power of The Primes Deluxe Moonracer. Coming to us from wave 2 of the Deluxes, Moonracer is the first use of the mold also expected to represent Firestar (under the name Novastar) as the sole new entry in Deluxe wave 4 much later in 2018. We can see the typical set of package, robot and vehicle here, though with the robot mode equipped with the combiner hand Prime Armor not all the details are visible to us. But these full size images are a great start to our look at this toy. Keep reading to see them all!
Planet X has posted a detailed gallery to their Facebook page showing off Pluto, the representation of Megatron for their War For Cybertron and Fall of Cybertron inspired unofficial figure lineup. Megatron's War For Cybertron design was of course the subject of an official toy several years ago, but this looks to be digging a fair bit deeper in the source design thanks to not having to pack in to the size (or budget) of a Deluxe toy. The figure displays quite a bit of posability and is shown with the large cannon as well as a sword accessory which can attach in both modes. We've mirrored the new photos, so click through and check it out!
From the website of artist Furio Tedeschi we have some new pieces of The Last Knight
concept art from various stages of design. What made this latest batch stand out as interesting was how a number of pieces, such as some of the knight designs, showed clear traces of what would go in to the toyline, possibly marking a few of these pieces as part of the starting point for the design of things like Dragonstorm. Another treat is a few photos of those knight designs as physical set elements from the sound stages - parts of which I personally got to view up close in August of 2016! Keep reading to take a look through the mirrored images!
