    Well, these are evidently not studio series adapted molds. The ss mix master and scavenger were shown at the con panel today (Canada???? ) the altmode for scavenger doesn't look amazing, abit angular and small treads and mixmaster has a huge block sticking out his back. Cheaper isn't always better I guess. Bombusbee win on those 2

    Now that Studio Series Voyager Mixmaster and Leader Scavenger have (finally) been revealed, here are compare/contrast imagery between the Hasbro and Bombusbee figures.

    The drum is very small on ss mixmaster, and the treads on ss scavenger look pretty cheap. And the huge back kibble on ss mixmaster too. It's disappointing. I think like alot of people I hope these were stolen ss molds, these look better, so I guess the higher price is justified.

    I wonder how hastak feel releasing these after seeing bombusbee work.

    I'm still going to get the ss ones, because I've already bought the 4 already released.

    Demolishor was one of my favorite rotf releases. I really liked the mold.

    Forgetting the extra kibble on the back of the altmode, it looked better than the ss one.

    Same with mixmaster exaggerated front bumper bars. They look abit cartoony.

    While I like the look of this mixmaster more, not going to pretend its more accurate. The SS molds are a lot more accurate detail wise and with the vehicles. still up in the air on which set I'll get but each has its ups and downs.

    As someone who will buy the Bombusbee figures if they're MPM scaled, I think the Hasbro versions look way better. But then we haven't seen final versions of either Devastator, which will determine whether the compromises on these figures were worth it.

    NO. You see, the theory was correct, but Hasbro changed the molds at the last second!!!!1!!

    We still have to see more photos from different angles. Right now, Bombusbee wins for me.

    I also have the 4 released SS Constructicons.

    But if Bombusbee's Hightower has better robot mode arms than Hasbro's, I'll...be...pissed!

    Here's the thing. Although the SS version will be a real-world scale Devastator, when has a combiner ever been depicted true to scale? My point is I will happily stand this next to SS figures just so he'll look extra imposing, like how Blackout was made large intentionally at the beginning of the movie.

    I’m Team Bombusbee right now, but I do like SS Scavenger’s robot mode quite a bit.

    Yeah studio series Scavenger looks a lot better and more accurate.

    I think that SS does the wheels better because they're supposed to be the treads.

    Agreed. SS Scavenger wheels and face look amazing. The Bombusbee wheels just look puny and bland in comparison now.

    Constructicons are my favourite designs from the movies so I want them all for individual bot mode display but also want the option of combining so can’t be cherry picking on an individual basis. I’m going with Bombusbee out of an assumption that they’ll have better transformations and kibble-management but I may end up getting OS SS versions in certain instances if the differences are as stark as they are with Scavenger.

    I dunno- Demolisher is such an incomprehensible mess of components that I think as long as both figures can stand up and stay connected then there won’t be much in it.
    For me it’s the individual bot modes where either brand will shine and seeing who makes the least glaring compromises to achieve the combiner mode.

    While i do agree, SS scavenger doesn't look like will give Devy's torso justice, lacks a lot of Devastator pieces.

    I think it's kinda a sacrifice for something, cause if you want a better torso, mixmaster and scavenger will have to suffer, but if you want better individual bots, the combined form might have to suffer because of that.

    SS Scavenger looks better in bot mode no question. Combined mode is still a mystery, but since he's one of my favorite rotf designs I'll definitely be getting the SS one, and maybe even two! I'll have to repaint one white.

    Bombusbee looks like less and less of a possibility for me with all this awesome SS stuff coming out at the beginning of next year, but I still wanna track this project because it has a lot of potential. Like I've said before too, if their Rampage has a good bot mode then I'll definitely at least be getting him.
