Via TAG Hobby
, we have new images from the latest Figure King magazine, showing off a few upcoming Takara Transformers. Among them are some new looks at the the Armor Knight Optimus Prime
, Legends Arcee, Chromia and Windblade
, Black Knight Dinobots Scorn, Strafe, and Slug
, and also in-package shots of Masterpiece Bumblebee
and a few other upcoming Takara Legends releases.
As can be seen here, all of these figures are done up to be more accurate to their past fictional depictions - Optimus has extensive remolding to resemble how he looked in AOE more, Arcee and Chromia have been colored to better match their G1 cartoon appearances, and Windblade has paint apps specifically matching the way she's been drawn by Sarah Stone in the IDW comics.
A few interesting tidbits can also be gleaned from what we see of Armor Knight Optimus here - it seems his face does not change by way of a simple removable faceplate as many had speculated, but by having two alternate faces built into his head. He also appears to have new boxart and comes already-posed in his famous AOE stance in the box.
Check 'em out and discuss after the break!
