Takara-Tomy October Releases & Legendary Weapons In-Hand

Posted on 10-18-2014 at 06:24 AM by Sol Fury under Transformers Movie Toys & Products (All Transformers Movie News)
B0N5O6UCMAA-PqT Alfes2010 has shared some images of some of Takara-Tomy's October Transformers Age of Extinction Japanese market releases, including some images of the "Legendary Weapons" accessories being given away as a part of a promotional campaign.

Via Alfes' Twitter account, we have a look at a couple of those Legendary Weapon premiums - available free when spending 3,000 yen or more at specific retailers. In particular there are some great looks at the "Prime Axe" weapon.

Next on Alfes' blog we have a look at the Japanese market version of Power Battlers Galvatron. This "Lost Age" Galvatron is shown side-by-side with the other Japanese market releases of Galvatron toys - the Voyager class Generations Galvatron, and the One Step Changer. Which brings us nicely on to the next item!

Alfes has also shared images of the Japanese market One Step Changer four pack. This four pack collects the One Step Changers versions of Galvatron, Silver Knight Optimus Prime, Helicopter Drift and Dinobot Slug in a single box.

Check out the images for all of these and see what you think.

TAK11977 Our sponsors Big Bad Toy Store report that the Dual Model Kit version of Autobot Bumblebee - based on his appearance in Transformers Dark of the Moon - will be getting a rerelease in March 2015. This kit for those not aware does not transform, but sports good poseability and incredible detail compared to the on-screen model. Well worth taking a look at if you're a fan of the movies or a fan of Bumblebee!
