News Post: Transformers: The Last Knight Armor Up Changers Info Revealed
Wait, deluxes are 12.5 cm high?
I just measured that out - if that's head height, then these 'deluxes' are going to be shorter than Combiner Wars deluxes. We're talking on par with 2006 Classics Bumblebee height.
EDIT: Or to use a movie figure - the top of 2007 Deluxe Bonecrusher's claw when said claw is at its lowest position on the upright robot figure, roughly speaking. These deluxes will be about 5 inches, which means on average they will be leaning to be on the smaller size on average. And given 2007 Bonecrusher was the shortest deluxe of the initial 2007 lineup, this is continuing a trend of downsizing from AoE.
So these are for Portugal only ? Right ?
So no leader class? Every assortment I've seen has left out that size class... interesting.
Could be a Portugal thing. Could be not. TFW Staff members also mentioned the same concern as you did.
So, they just gave up on Leaders, huh.
Out of curiosity, the MPMs are a seperste line from TLK, right? If so, has it been confirmed to be a Hasbro, Hasbro Asia or Takara thing?
Considering you could still find Leader Grimlock on shelves a year later...I don't blame them.
Interesting, can\'t wait to see pictures in a couple of weeks.
Yeah I've been wondering about that. Hasbro will probably surprise us with something good ? Maybe ?
At this point, they should just rename Voyagers to Deluxes and Deluxes to Scouts and be done with it.
They may be skipping them entirely. I remember when they rebranded the Legends Class into Cyberverse, and everyone got pretty peeved.
Aren't the RID one's already that small?
That was primarily due to poor design and lack of effort in the movie... i mean, why would you buy Grimlock when he barely appeared in Age Of Extinction and did virtually nothing memorable.
Will be very disappointed not to get a leader-class Megatron, potentially with complexity of ROTF Prime...
Maybe if Hasbro gets rid of leader class, then they will bring back the Human Alliance line ? This is what I think will happen, but probably not.
What is that Prime in the new image? It looks really good.
It is Transformers The Last Knight Premiere Edition voyager Optimus Prime.
Well, if the incoming price hike on deluxes is in fact going to be $20, that very well may be what happens next. Plus how they basically renamed the old Scout class as Legends, which itself is what is the current Legion class.
As for Leaders, I actually wouldn't mind a name change for that class. The designation really does make it sound reserved for only the actual leaders, which doesn't work when Prime and Megsy usually are not the tallest of their sides. Maybe "Champion" class or something would be better suited.
Unlikely. HA's worked well enough both on the old Scout price point for DOTM, and for both DOTM and ROTF the Voyagers on the old Ultra Class pricepoint.
But HA's are also complex sons of bitches and the Post-AoE designs are frankly impossible to even do without cheating or shellforming. Case in point: Galvatron. Didn't even TRY there.
The voyager class optimus for TLK.
With my HA figures I always kept them in the box except for Jazz and Soundwave. Jazz has a cool transformation. Soundwave is a pain though.
Only six deluxes, four voyagers and nine legions ?
Goodbye my dreams of a Movieverse submarine transformer or anything basically but the big names of the movies
Separate names with a comma.
