Thanks to the fine folks at Hasbro we now have some pretty shots of the Transformers: The Last Knight cast hanging out at Toy Fair 2017. Included are shots of Michael Bay himself, Mark Wahlberg, Isabela Moner, Laura Haddock, Josh Duhamel and producer Lorenzo DiBonaventura playing with the awesome toys we got to check out in the very same space this past weekend. Read on to see all the pics!
This is a grouped category for both the Transformers movie toys and products plus news related to the actual movies like set updates and new trailers. You can break it down further by following the links to either Transformers Movie (Just Movie) or Transformers Movie Toys & Products under each story.
Michael Bay, Lorenzo Di Bonavetura and part of the crew of “The Last Knight” (Isabela Moner, Laura Haddock and Josh Duhamel) showed up at Toyfair.
The crew seems to have fun at Toyfair, and it’s cool to see them in these events.
Several pics surfaced on different social media and 2005 boards user pie125 has shared some of them for us. Join to the discussion at the 2005 boards.
We have a little update from our previous news post regarding Takara Tomy‘s Transformers: The Last Knight website.
It seems as though the site is treating us to CGI Package Art from the toy line.
The art showcases Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Barricade and Hound in various action poses.
Check ’em out, after the jump.
The official website of Transformers: The Last Knight toys by Takara Tomy is now live.
The new site features the Japanese Theatrical Trailer for the movie, the Banner and a Commercial for the upcoming toyline. Unfortunately, the commercial is region locked.
At the bottom, there are several links for the initial lineup which features the following:
- 1-Step Changer (Turbo Changer) Optimus Prime
- 1-Step Changer (Turbo Changer) Bumblebee
- 1-Step Changer (Turbo Changer) Barricade
- 1-Step Changer (Turbo Changer) Hound
- Deluxe Class Bumblebee (AOE Repaint)
- Deluxe Class Berserker
- Deluxe Class Slash (AOE Repaint)
- Voyager Class Grimlock (AOE Repaint)
Very much like Voyager Class Optimus Prime, the above figures are mostly identical to their US Releases.
Check out the new site, right here.
This news comes from Toys “R” Us, Japan for their exclusive Transformers: The Last Knight Voyager Class Optimus Prime figure from Takara Tomy: pre-orders are now up.
When compared with the United States release of the same figure, there isn’t much of a difference at all.
However, we now have a definitive release date for the TLK toys in Japan. Listed as May 1st, 2017 the toy comes with a Sword, a Shield and the Instruction Manual.
Official description of the figure is the same as the English version.
TRU Japan Exclusive Transformers: The Last Knight Voyager Class Optimus Prime is priced at ¥ 4,499 (approx. $45).
Check it out at Toys “R” Us, Japan.
Thanks to Cybertron.ca we can report that the Optimus Prime Voice Changer Helmet was found at a local ToysRus for $130 Canadian dollars ($99 US dollars aproximately).
Happy hunting for all Canadian fans. Don’t forget to click on the bar to check the pictures at the 2005 boards.
