    I feel like most of the news posts are just templates that newsies drag and drop new phrases into. It makes for some very weird sentences like you said.

    That said, this looks nice. Might get it. Dropkick's shelfwarming here so I might have the chance to grab them together.

    Or at least, maybe molded weapons/blades (think something like movie Sideswipe in some versions of the figure)

    Isn't it cool how these movies have triple changers who can never be triple changers in toy form? That's so exciting.

    Isn't it cool how the one character in the movie that's actually a triple changer actually isn't and looks just like another major character to the point of mass fan confusion? OMG YES MORE MOVIES PLEASE

    Never settle for less, because that will be your new normal.

    Shatter seems... Thin. Or maybe basic is the word I'm looking for.

    What I mean is that she looks like a robot figure with some jet engines and wings glued to her back. The renders looked like the figure would have more mass. Then again this could also be mistransformed.

    Even so I'm still excited to get this figure. I'm really happy with how her face looks. As soon as she's available I'll get her and car mode Dropkick. I loved this duo in the film and I can't wait to finally have them on my shelf.

    The changes are 90% to avoid licensing(presumably), not due to transformation. It COULD be a Harrier and not affect robot mode. It just isn't.

    The overall shape/proportions are very Harrier-esque. But no part of it is a Harrier.

    If anything, it's been made worse by not being a Harrier---they've mainly ADDED mass/parts that a Harrier doesn't have. Slicing them off would trim the figure down a bit in spots.

    I can't stop looking at this. Sigh. Never bought anything from Studio Series but looks like that has to end. I want SS22, SS40, SS46 and SS59. It's practically a set to complete at this point just to get all their vehicle modes and create the illusion of "Triple Changers". Maannn...

    Oh! i didnt consider that! part of me forgets that theres copyrights and licensing for things like jets. As a dude who doesnt know a ton about Jets, what are the biggest changes/differences between Shatter and irl?

    Every photo up until this point had hand cannons that covered the entire forearm, so as silly as it sounds, yes we were worried about no hands

    I still don't think I'm going to touch Helicopter Dropkick. He just looks so far removed from the character model. I do own both car mode Deluxes, though.

    I think I'll have car Dropkick and jet Shatter as the duo on my shelf.

    Roadbuster is looking real James Bond with the minigun in the grill.
    But seriously, roadbuster is the perfect blend of bay to me.

    I hated the car mode toy... so blocky and lacks articulation, not as sleek as the movie design. This looks so much better. I just dislike the fake car parts... wish they made her a triple changer, but well, the movie totally cheats there same as the 2007 movie transformations did. Will likely get here.
    Btw, what a complete waste was it to kill her and Dropkick so unceremoniously. And in general... that movie was hyped by every fan here on these boards, so when I saw it I was disappointed how little the TF stuff was in it and how it was like the 2007 movie, \"a girl and her car\" once again, with Bee being more of a loveable pet than an intelligent character.

    I will never, ever understand this.
    Cars I get, they are merchandise, marketed to the general populace.
    But jets are friggin WAR MACHINES. They are not status symbols, nor can you find them at the local vehicle shop, or ever buy them. They are sold to the military who likely cares little about how they look as long as they can fly and drop bombs. There is likely also zero marketing in effect especially for the Harrier which is what, 30 years old at this time?
    So why this need for copyright protection? Y'd think whatever company manufactures these would be glad kids who might grow up to be military contractors will play with their designs.
    Also, does this mean Hot Wheels and Matchbox pays through their nose for every damn plane and car toy they release?

    Shatter's looking more and more sweet. :)  So glad we're getting a version of her that's more movie accurate aside from not being a triple changer of course.

    Although this is making me want to see a Studio Series Slipstream retool out of the mold

    Reasonably accurate, a cool looking jet mode, and she doesn't look to be especially reliant on fiddly panels. Sold.

    Jet mode is surprisingly nice. I don't care that it's not an exact Harrier, but I like the lack of huge amounts of blocky kibble on the underside.
