News & Updates


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. Keep reading to see the photos!



A recent feature list on the online version of Rolling Stone sought to line up the ten worst films of 2017, Many choices seemed quite fitting, with few at least marginally surprising even just for where they scored on the list, if not their presence there to start with. But it's probably not that much of a leap that they gave the number one spot on the list to none other than Transformers: The Last Knight. While some fans might point to it as being on the better end of the series, that speaks very little for its quality in the larger arena of movies in general. Keep reading for a quick excerpt and link back to the Rolling Stone page.



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!



Paramount Home Media Distribution today unveiled a free augmented reality experience for iOS app users, coinciding with the release of Transformers: The Last Knight on 4K Ultra HD. Created by Viacom’s VR team Viacom NEXT using Apple ARKit technology, the app incorporates content from the latest film in the blockbuster series, Transformers: The Last Knight.



Greg "M Sipher" Sepelak reported on Twitter that he found two of the presumed-Walmart Exclusive Transformers: The Last Knight "Autobots Unite" Two-Packs on sale at Ross! For those not familiar with the chain, Ross is one of a number of discount store chains in the US - along with TJ Maxx, Marshall's, and Ollie's - where Transformers items show up with a certain regularity. If you see them, a pair of Legion class figures will run you $5, and a pair of Turbo Changers will run you $12. Keep reading for the photographic proof, mirrored here for convenience.



We reported in September that the release of TLK-29 Cogman, originally planned for the end of October, had been delayed with no followup release date given. It's taken a while, but we finally have some good news on this story. An update has been posted by TakaraTomy, and Cogman is back on the schedule. If you were counting on the Japanese release to bring you one of the best toys the Transformers The Last Knight line has to offer, it looks like you're back in business! Click through for the updated release details!



Our anonymous Walmart insider has once again provided us with a new photo! This time, we've got a "PDQ" display of Transformers: The Last Knight Premier Deluxes for the holidays. And - it's so sad to say this is an improvement - it features the second wave of Deluxes, featuring Slug, Sqweeks, Drift, and Steelbane! Hopefully this is just the start and Hasbro won't be leaving money on the table by leaving Cogman's wave so difficult to find. Keep reading for the photo!



Autobase Aichi has posted images of more of TakaraTomy's Transformers: The Last Knight promotional items, and details on how to get them! Those who spend 2,000 Yen or more at TakaraTomyMall right now will net themselves a Bronze Calibur Axe. Meanwhile, those who spend at least 5,000 Yen starting November 11th will be give a set of golden weapons for Optimus Prime and Megatron - the Temenos Sword and "Battle Axe" - while supplies last. Keep reading to see the images!



If you don't remember Battle Command Optimus Prime, don't feel bad. It was a TakaraTomy product during their Age of Extinction line designed as a centerpiece figure and vague playset for the One-Step Changer figures of the time. We have a partial catalog image showing this toy coming around again, now under the ID TC-09 (though no sign so far of TC-01 through 08, oddly). At this point we have no information on whether it will have a new deco, or anything else to set it apart from LA-01 Battle Command Optimus, but we should start to learn more before its release in April 2018. Keep reading to see the image!



It sure hasn't been easy for collectors wanting to add one of the best characters from The Last Knight to their shelves. Stores packed with wave 1 Deluxes have slowed down progress drastically, and the TakaraTomy release, planned for the end of this month, has been mysteriously - and indefinitely - delayed. But still there are ways, and if you must resort to more extreme measures, Cogman is at least a very nice figure, covered in detail, lots of paint wash to bring it out, and some nice poseability. Plus it can readily play with all your Titans Return toys and the other best TLK toy, Nitro! You can find examples of all these things in our gallery of almost 200 photos! Keep reading to get started.

The images also hint at golden weapons for Optimus and Megatron - keep reading to see!


We've got scans of the Transformers pages of Figure King 236 from Loopaza on Facebook. This installment features a page and a half on the Movie The Best lineup coming in early 2018, a page featuring the Leader Class Dragonstorm and the big gimmick toy versiuon, which they depict Optimus Prime riding. The last half of page 3 shows the LG Clonetrons, Windblade, G2 Megatron, and the Prime 1 Studios Sqweeks statue. Click through to see the mirrored pages!

Interviews


In a video interview on comicbook.com, Lorenzo di Bonaventura goes in full spoiler mode talking about The Last Knight, touching on how some of the movie's themes came about, as well as his feelings on the matter when the interviewer asks about a possible move towards Beast Wars representation. But he seems to have the most to say when the question comes up regarding certain aspects of Quintessa, which, if held to, could lead future installments to very weird places. Keep reading to find out what he said, but be aware that it has spoilers for the movie!


Movie website Fandango has interviewed director Michael Bay about his plans for the future, and they once again do not include another Transformers film. This is the fourth time Bay has made this declaration, having recanted after Revenge of the Fallen, Dark of the Moon, and Age of Extinction - frequently citing an admirable desire to keep his crew together and keep them getting paid. Keep reading for a link to the full interview and the relevant quote!


It appear The Last Knight is the last stop for more than director Michael Bay as lead actor Mark Wahlberg reports this is also his last Transformers movie. And it appears he's quite glad about it too offering his less than happy feedback on having to get in shape and wear his hair long. It's all good Mark, you can load up on Whalbugers now.


British tabloid Daily Mail has interviewed Hopkins about his career, Transformers, and a variety of other subjects. He knows his part - but that doesn't require knowing the complete mythology of the Transformers film series. But he enjoyed working on it nonetheless and was on-set in a variety of interesting locations. Keep reading for the short segment of the interview dedicated to TF5.


Empire Magazine's online arm have posted what they are calling an "Exclusive, Explosive New Look At Bumblebee In Transformers: The Last Knight", which is something that we have seen already in early trailers where Bumblebee saves the kids from the bipedal Mech-bot at the abandoned stadium, but still! The good news is beyond the Bee, we get some insights on the making of the latest movie with words from the writers room on the early formation of the 5th Transformers movie and how they pretty much got what they wanted...

Rumors


From NOTRAB we have a curious photo showing two unknown items. More prominently is an Optimus Prime - which is the Leader Class toy from the 2007 movie line. This features chrome as well as a deco that's not consistent with any prior release of this mold, most notably lacking the orange fade on the truck nose typical of this toy. But what this mysterious new old Optimus is sitting on is some sort of Bumblebee box set. What's up with that? Keep reading for more details!


While we'd previously seen hints at a Voyager Class Bumblebee being in store for later waves of the Transformers: The Last Knight toyline, those hints just got a lot stronger with the addition of a blank-but-headered page for the figure at ToysRUs UK. The product number also gives us a good indication of which wave we'll see the figure in. Keep reading for more info!


The British Board of Film Classification has classified two new Transformers The Last Knight trailers today: one, the trailer we just linked to, and the other an as-yet unknown 61-second trailer. Is this the original Kids' Choice Awards trailer that the new trailer expands on, or something else entirely? Keep reading to see the BBFC's classification data!


TFW2005 has posted a couple of stories today with some interesting insights into the impending Transformers: The Last Knight toyline! Most notably, they've now posted (fully-codenamed) case breakdowns for Wave 1 of the toyline! Using this info, they're suggesting that Barricade is the character code-named "Mars," and that Bumblebee is codename "Saturn." Keep reading for more info and our analysis of the situation!
