Blog #1581: Toy Reviews: Transformers Takara Metal Figure Collection

These have apparently been coming out for a few years, but I only recently became aware of them. They are die-cast metal figures with plastic parts. They have limited articulation and very detailed paintjobs.

Optimus Prime (Dark of the Moon)

Optimus Prime comes with a sword. He looks very cool

Bumblebee (Dark of the Moon)

Bumblebee is a hefty figure. He’s got some weight to him. There is a lot of detail in the mold. His cannon arm looks great. I love the paintjob. Great figure.

Bumblebee (The Last Knight)

The Last Knight Bumblebee is nicely painted, but I do not like the design anywhere near as much as Dark of the Moon Bumblebee.


Sqweeks looks awesome! He’s such a cool figure. Paint apps are great.

Optimus Prime (Age of Extinction) Regular and “King” Version

Optimus Prime looks pretty great in his Age of Extinction (and The Last Knight) robot mode. He’s got great paint apps. A very cool figure. The “King” version has a metallic paintjob.

Thanks for reading!
