    According to Autobase Aichi, a new listing for Legends & Movie the Best figures is leaked.

    Legends:
    • February 2018 releases:

      • LG62 Targetmaster Windblade (redeco of TR Windblade with new Targetmaster
      • LG63 G2 Megatron (given the price point, it was possibly a redeco of TR Megatron in G2 colors)
    Movie The Best:
    • February 2018 releases:
      • MB-12 Jazz (redeco of the original Deluxe Class Movie Jazz figure, probably with the satellite weapon)
      • MB-13 Bonecrusher (redeco of the original DLX figure)
      • MB-14 Megatron (given the price point, it was possibly a redeco of either 2007 or ROTF Leader)

    • March 2018 releases:
      • MB-16 Jetfire (Redeco of the ROTF Leader figure)

      • MB-18 War Hammer Bumblebee (Redeco of the 2nd TLK Deluxe figure with a new Hammer accessory)
      • MB-19 Hound (Probably a redeco of the AOE Voyager)
      • MB-20 Nemesis Prime (Probably a redeco of the ROTF Leader Class figure)

    Did you grab any of your descriptions from the listings or are you just speculating? That Lockdown might be an all new figure, there was a Lockdown shown in the pics that were leaked(and subsequently taken down by Hasbro) and it looked all new.

    This gets me more concerned about those Movie leaks.

    Damn, I was going to pass on that Windblade mold but I'm going to have to buy it if it comes with a Targetmaster. Chances are it's Scourge's.

    Well, I hadn't picked up TR Windblade yet. Probably the closest chance we'll get for Fracas, so she'll be mine. Kinda funny since Windblade shares some tooling from Scourge.

    Also, definitely bummed that G2 Megatron is gonna be from the triple-changer mold. Would have preferred the leader, though it would be unlikely for Takara to release a straight redeco.

    Will probably grab the Clonetrons since I pre-ordered the Clonebots
    Don't care too much about the rest of the Legends stuff

    Interesting to see that Movie the Best is continuing
    Some odd choices there but not bad
    If that Bee does end up being the TLK wave 3 deluxe with a new hammer accessory. Then I'll probably end up pre-ordering him. Since as far as Ive heard we likely won't be seeing the wave 3 stuff over here
    Kinda makes me regret buying the Dr Wu hammer though if he does come with a new hammer since I usually don't buy 3rd party but wanted a hammer for Bee.
    Guess I can give the 3rd party one to Mpm Bee or something

    The rest of the movie the best stuff. It'll come down to how they look.

    Just in case, this is the original source, adn the original list has no description of the items. So far, Movie The Best is only about reissues of movie toys. But we can wait and see.

    The pricing on MB Megatron and Nemesis Prime makes me think they'll be redecos of the TLK Leaders. Fingers crossed, especially for Megatron. That mold would look excellent in movie-accurate silver.

    Also hoping that the Jazz and Lockdown listings are the new mold Deluxes that were leaked.

    Damn it, that makes me want it. Though I also dig the Titanmaster dinosaur digibash I saw with the Megatron head in green with the dinosaur in Trypticon colors.

    My problem is I kinda want this twice over now. G2 Megatron is pretty solid on his own but I love Megastorm (he says only having seen a dozen BWII episodes)

    Was onboard for the Movie The Best subline. If these are just rereleases/redecos, and not new molds as I previously thought, it's gonna be an entire pass. Happy for those who get another shot to own the figures, but if HasTak ain't dunking resources into new engineering for some characters w/toy reps in need of a facelift (ala Jazz and Lockdown), I ain't dunking my wallet (just kidding, y'all have me trapped so long as you continue MPMs [​IMG] )

    I think a G2 version of the Voyager works for Megastorm, whereas a redeco of the leader would be proper G2 Megatron.

    G2 Megs! Please tell me he'll make for an easy Megastorm repurposing. The Decepticon Clones sound interesting too. Wondering how they'll do Windblade, tho. The Hasbro version basically had the right colors so what's there to alter besides giving her a Targetmaster?

    Looking forward to the Movie figures too. Hopefully TLK Bee has actual paint and the correct color layouts. I hate the grey feet on the Hasbro version.

    You actually raise a good point there, both Jazz and Lockdown were on that other leak as supposed new molds. It's possible that these will be the Takara release of those new molds.
    Or like with movie best Optimus prime and mpm Optimus prime. A last Hurrah of the old best mold before they move on to releasing the new one

    Compared previous prices to the listings here and here are my thoughts:
    • MB14- this has the pricepoint of Takara TLK leaders, I suspect it's a repaint of TLK Megatron with the red face mark. Either that or an all new toy of 1 of the movie trilogy Megatrons. My reasoning being that a Megatron was listed/seen in the 2018 movie toy leaks and the 8000yen price point is the same as the TLK leader pricepoint. Meanwhile a movie trilogy repaint leader(MB11 Optimus) was 10000yen.
    • MB12 Jazz- I think this might be new and from the 2018 leaked line
    • MB15 Lockdown- I think this is new and from the leaked 2018 line we saw months back
    • MB13 Bonecrusher- I think this a new 2018 mold too
    • MB20 Nemesis Prime- I think this is Calibur Prime in dark colors(like the Japanese exclusive movie ticket voyager Dark Optimus) with red scar. This is 8000yen like the other TLK leaders.
    • MB17 Revenge Optimus- I think this is a redeco of MPM04 with weathered apps and battle hooks and 2 guns instead of 1. Note: this has the same price as Takara's MPM04 Optimus
    • MB18 Warhammer Bumblebee- I think this is the TLK wave 3 bee with a battle mask head and better paint apps. OR WW2 Bumblebee.
    • LG63 G2 Megatron- either Green Megatron or the Combat Hero one. I would suspect the latter if Takara is planning their own release of G2 Laser Optimus. We have seen a modern G2 Megatron with GDO Megatron.
