Where’s the images for figures 14-22
Ratchet looks really lackluster in robot mode. Shadow Raider is still a bit of an oddity. They should've put KSI Sentry in wave 3 and then just given Lockdown the new head and weapon in wave 4 if they were concerned about having an almost identical figure in consecutive waves (not that that's stopped them from releasing loads of Bumblebees close together).
That's an official image; Hasbro puts the measurements on them.
Just wait till they do the Jeep retool lol
Well these three are wave 3, Dropkick, KSI Sentry and ROTF Starscream are wave 4 so we'll probably see them later. The Then & Now 2-pack and the Camaro with Charlie are probably exclusives so might not show up till they're on the retailers' site.
I think officially October but everything seems to come out a month early so maybe next month.
I \'m definitely gonna get that bee, we have enough but at least it isn\'t another camaro. I guess one more won\'t hurt but the amount of the bees in studio series is just stupid.:-o
Saw the Cyberverse stuff but too kiddy for my tastes.
really?! I'd have expected the other way around! Hm, I wonder if he's worth picking up, or not.
Usually the ones woth 'extra' decos tend to be the exclusives. It's not vastly different though to be honest, and because you get the 'rust', the paint on the feet is missing; same with the TLK in the two pack, which has more black paint in car mode but completely unpainted legs and feet.
That's an awful lot of Bumblebees over the next 6 months...
Can I make a request, Hasbro?
The repaints/re-uses are fine, but the reality is these will either be difficult to find or clog shelves for months after the movie's release.
Please figure out a way to clear local stores' inventories and refresh them properly! In the old days, suppliers/manufacturers would take back old stock and either sell it elsewhere or repackage it. Seems like that worked much better for getting new inventory out (as contrasted by the current retail system of simply keeping stock for YEARS after release, taking up shelf space for newly released products, and forcing YOUR CUSTOMERS to either buy other competing toys or not shop in local stores at all).
If you do NOTHING about the bad distribution, you can at least stop bothering to ship these to stores - a lot of collectors have already given up and order exclusively online anyway. The rest of the collectors will just spend their money on other toy lines by Mattel, Funko, etc. Your products are becoming notoriously difficult to buy, Hasbro. Fix that or lose money.
I still have no feel for Shadow Raider, but I guess he is premold for Lockdown from scene where he extracted Ratchet's spark.
I feel as though Hasbro intended to sale these because they know that people want a complete(ish) Lockdown with the gun and masked head and a complete Ratchet with his gun and saw.
Bumblebee and DOTM Ratchet will join my collection. As well as Dropkick once its available. Don't really understand Shadow Raider, but KSI Sentry is tempting me though.
Have yet to buy any of the Studio Series. In my area, I\'ve seen them clogging the selves. I bet the Cyberverse toys will sell better than these. I\'m just not impress with these. Might just save money for the Prime Wars toys, they look better than these.
Like most I originally wanted Shadow raider for his head & gun but hot damn he looks really good in orange.
Even looks better in package than the official pics. imo
Love this line, pretty sad to see it taken over by the Bumblebee movie.
Was hoping for an updated Fallen & Bonecrusher and a shot to get Soundwave & Mirage.
A Quintessa Marvel styled Build a figure & an Allspark block would\'ve been cool.
I wish POTP had a Quintesson build a fig where each deluxe comes with a face.
According to Hasbro SS will continue all the way to at least 2019, meaning there’s more than enough time for them to complete our wishlists like...
(I guess some of you are bored of hearing this)
Barricade, Sideswipe and Dino!
I'll probably grab a Bumblebee and leave the one with the G1 tapes sealed as well as dropkick, but unless I can get a deep discount, the only halfway interesting ones to me are the drone repaints. Be damn with scale, the first couple movies gave me way too many Ratchets and Bumblebees.
I thought they were doing only 25, like they showed on that poster.
Really hope I'm wrong tho.
25 this year that we know of I say that because I dont think that Hasbro will wait to release a jet form of shatter in studio series after the movie comes out.
The car modes of the con duo I don't know why but I see them as a 2pk next year like the bumble bee then and now 2pk.
There are at least 8 we know of that popped up in listings probably for release in 2019 we've yet to see
Shadow Raider is the only one I like. I don't really care about movie stuff. I just wish he had a jet alt mode. The head & color scheme would look awesome on the Nitro mold.
