    トランスフォーマー/最後の騎士王 | 映画の動画・DVD - TSUTAYA/ツタヤ

    Japanese video rental chain Tsutaya is holding a TLK campaign from 13 Dec 2017 to 8 Jan 2018.

    Rent the movie, answer a questionnaire and stand a chance to win (A) TLK-15 Calibur Optimus Prime, (B) TLK-19 Megatron or (C) Autobot Sqweeks RC.

    For fans not based in Japan, the coolest bit from this is probably the neat artwork of MP-10 coming out of the store with his videos.

    Okay, that is an adorable drawing. I also didn't know people could rent stuff in Japan, or was that just video games? (At least they couldn't for a long time, it may have changed at some point.)

    I find it humorous that they're using G1 OP to promote the newest Bayformers movie.

    Ahh, Tsutaya, the Japanese version of Blockbuster Video.  It\'s worth noting that this company is a good thumbnail of Japan, as it\'s a place where Japanese people RENT videos on DVD (mainly), whereas most of the developed world has already moved on. That\'s probably why the picture uses a G1 Optimus and why it looks so \"old\"...

    How can you tell it\'s an MP-10 version of OP as opposed to any other G1 version?

    OK, I have a few questions: (awesome artwork BTW)

    How exactly does Optimus Prime go video shopping when he's taller than the entire store?

    Are the Michael Bay Transformers movies fiction in the 'real' G1 universe?

    Do Tsutaya stores carry shopping bags the size of their own sign?

    I miss video rental places. I continued using them right to the end. There was nothing quite like going down to the local Blockbuster and picking out a couple of movies for the week. In fact, I think it was through Blockbuster that I first got into Beast Wars, and thus the Transformers brand as a whole. Ah the ‘90s, good times.

    Anyway, this comment is largely irrelevant to the subject matter, so carry on. Nothing to see here.
