    It is, but the word is that we're also getting a new one later down the line. Most likely not in 2022, though.

    I'm going to skip the Bee/Stinger pack for sure as I have the AOE toy and the first Studio Series toy. I do like that they did it this way; they kept Stinger's number in the SS line so it's clearly a rerelease. Nice for people who wanted both. I may consider the Shatter set; still haven't seen the Bee film and I plan on getting the cassette set for the SS Bee anyway but the normal yellow Bee looks nice anyway so may just bite on it.

    Bruh, I'm just so happy we're getting these two-packs. Getting back into collecting, I missed most of these. I've been looking for Car Dropkick and I had some interest in Beetle Bee, literally couldn't be any better.

    Maybe we will get the new High Octane Bee under a different name. Such as Stealth Bumblebee or 67 Camero Bumblebee.

    i like these, i missed out on VW bee, octane bee, clunker bee and stinger, my dropkick and barricade also arent in the best condition so these 2 packs are godsends. definitely gonna be getting all 3. hopefully the QC on barricade is better.

    well we might still get a retool of 2007 camero bee into octane bee. this is most likely a last minute thing hasbro did to get it out onto the shelves

    You can tell covid hit them so hard, lmao.

    Looks like something you'd find in a Chinese shopping mall. That box design gives me physical pain.

    You know, I don't know why this just occurred to me now, but Dropkick (Both car and copter), Shatter (Car + Jet), Stinger, Shadow Raider, KSI Sentry + Boss make a good selection of troops to build a Vehicon army or something out of.

    As a customizer, I was super excited to hear the rumors of Carkick, Barricade, and Stinger getting released as I wanted to do a lot with these molds.


    The revelation that they are all in 2 packs was a bit of a bummer…. But, since the Bumblebee’s these come with are all superior to their main release counterparts(minus HO), that means I can just replace the old Bees with the new ones, and customize the old ones! Meaning I get even more figures to customize!

    I was kinda hoping for a new mold for High Octane Bumblebee, but that\'s not gonna keep me from getting this set. I\'ll happily pick up both of these.

    The Bumblebee/Dropkick pack does not include a chain accessory. 0/10

    I for one am glad they\'re reissuing figures with high markup on secondary markets. I missed out on Car mode Dropkick and thanked my lucky stars when I was able to snag him in a random old shipment drop from Big Bad TS.  Much to my delight, he lived up to my expectations. Absolutely blows copter Dropkick away. I am glad my fellow TF fans are able to get a second chance at him for a non scalper price!

    Bring on SS Ratchet and Ironhide reissues and my Bayverse collection will be complete...
