    Possible Japanese Voyager Bonecrusher Movie Toy?

    I've found links to a possible Japanese Voyager Bonecrusher toy for the movie. It's listed as 3,500 yen which is the Japanese Voyager price point. It's most likely just a price error but you never know...

    http://www.hlj.com/product/TKT77057

    There's also lsitings for a Leader equivalent size Starscream and a second, Voyager equivalent Megatron which is not the frozen version (there's a separate listing for that.) I'm guessing that the names have been switched by accident on the listing but we know that the Japanese Leader Prime will have die-cast so it's just possible that Takara have made changes to other toys to suit their needs.

    Didn't a listing for a 39.99 (Hasbro) Starscream pop up recently? Maybe it was debunked - i didn't pay too much attention to the thread as a whole.


    There's a couple of other odd things there too - Barricade and Bonecrusher are both listed at 3500 Yen : The price of a Voyager.

    I'm not sure if it was hasbro but I do know a Starscream at that pricepoint was listed for radio shack.

    I doubt there will be a Voyager Barricade (or Bonecrusher for that matter), but if they did, it would probably be 1:24 scale - Alternator Barricade!

    I hope that's true, Bonecrusher hates having such a small toy.

    Though I am skeptical and believe the Megatron and Starscream listings were accidentally swapped, I do hold hope for Leader Starscream that can give us a sleek alternate mode and better proportions.

    It doesn't even need to be bigger---just get rid of the gimmick-guns and it'd be a lot better.

    And realistic colors would be nice, too. Though from what I've seen the F-22 that's supposed to be SS is one of the ones painted in 36251/36176 , which is not used on front-line F-22's. Can anyone confirm the exact F-22 used for filming? Looks like it was 91-006.

    I very much hope this is all true! I'm a fan of having characters in multiple sizes!

    The movie line seems to be coming the closest of any main TF line in terms of realistic proportioning when comparing the toys (aside from Bonecrusher, Brawl, etc.), so I'd love to see a Voyager Bonecrusher and Leader Starscream to go with the Leader Brawl mentioned previously.

    The intakes/kibble underneath bothered me more than the missle launchers to be honest.

    When Hasbro makes a Leader class Blackout, then I'll be ecstatic. Until then... :(

    A Voyager-sized Bonecrusher? A Leader-sized Starscream? If this is true, I'll be one broke-ass mofo this summer.

    Have you seen this thread: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/showthread.php?t=123245 ??? It's an Exhaustive Listing of Movie Toys & Merchandise. At the bottom of the listing, with the title: Japanese Toy Releases; is listed:

    MD-07 Megatron [leader]
    MD-08 Starscream [voyager]
    MD-09 Bonecrusher [deluxe]

    Perhaps the price is wrong!! or we are wrong thinking that is a Voyager Bonecrusher, Leader Starscream, and other kind a Voyager for Megatron.

    Besides of Optimus Prime and Megatron, according the Exhaustive Listing of Movie Toys & Merchandise, the other with Leader Class version is: Brawl.

    Anyway, without a picture you just can't tell otherwise. Let's wait and see !!!

    Seems to be a mistake on HLJ's part for the listings. They've swapped around some of the prices.

    Various sources have already put the prices for MD-09 Bonecrusher at 2,200yen (2,310 after tax), MD-08 Starscream at 3,500yen (3,675 after tax) and MD-07 Megatron at 6,500yen (6,825 after tax). Bonecrusher is deluxe, Starscream is voyger and Megatron is leader class.

    Here are the various sources with listings and prices:

    TFArchive's Movie Merchandise List:
    http://tfarchive.com/toys/checklists/live_action_movie.php

    TFans' TakaraTomy 2007 Release List:
    http://tfarchive.com/toys/checklists/live_action_movie.php

    Fantofan.jp's Early Bird Listings:
    http://www.fantofan.jp/earlybirdsp.htm

    We've also seen retailer catalog pics (albeit reused Hasbro stock images) that show MD-07 to 09 and they also show the figures as Leader, Voyger and Deluxe respectivley.

    MD-07 Megatron

    MD-08 Starscream

    MD-09 Bonecrusher

    I'm also hoping for larger versions of Bonecrusher and Starscream but the ones at HLJ are not the ones we're looking for.
