Toy News: Takara Tomy releases new photos of "Legends" Godbomber

Takara Tomy has released two new photos of the upcoming "Legends" Godbomber figure via their Twitter feed. The "Legends" line (the Japanese equivalent of "Generations") has long devoted itself to updated versions of classic characters, but Godbomber may be one of the less widely known characters. Originally introduced in "Masterforce", this character transformed into armor and a trailer for Ginrai. While not shown combined in these photos, it is assumed Godbomber will be able to combine with "Legends" Ginrai.

Movie News: New "The Last Knight" poster features Bumblebee in World War II

Paramount Pictures has released a new movie poster for "Transformers: The Last Knight". This time out, the poster features Bumblebee with some human soldiers behind him. In front of them is the Nazi stronghold already spotted in previous trailers. While we did see a Transformer attacking the stronghold in yesterday's TV spot the bulk of the character looked more like Autobot Hound, not Bumblebee. This poster however suggests otherwise (of course, they both could have been there).
