    They chose the weaponized alt-modes so they don't have to do that. Remember, they already have to license the cars AND Nascar just for three figures. There was no way they were also gonna license the sponsorship logos.

    Straight up swap with TLK Bumblebee. The exact same head design, even to the cup in the ball joint. The face piece is all they changed. So, if you have an extra TLK Bumblebee laying around, you've got a complete TF07 Bumblebee. No need to buy a whole 'mother figure.

    Do TLK and SS01 Bumblebee share the same head or are they in different sizes?

    Same visual design (back of the head) but SS01 is smaller. That said, it seems to be the same size noggin as the SS TF07 Bumblebee's. So, as long as the ball and the cup line up, either head should be able to swap out for this battle mask version.

    *Look at eBay for DOTM Wreckers*

    You boys know what, Makers should hurry the h#ll up & release a SS Leadfoot soon.

    Not many collectors are willing to part with USD $300 & above to get one. :lol :lol :lol

    Alright, so excited to see SS Deluxe Roadbuster. However, as much as I like movie roadbuster, I have to say that the human alliance Roadbuster really satisfies my movie wrecker needs. Was really hoping to see Scatter Jetformer level of movie accuracy and that back pack killed it for me.

    HAve yet to see Bumble Jeep, but for now, Jetformer Scatter look to be the best in wave and the line thus far.

    It looks like that the dreaded undercarriage issue suffered by most Jetformers got solved here. Of course it helps that the CGi designers really made it easy to make this toy due to a few design decisions regarding the placement of the huge engines and wings. It’s like the CGi artist actually worked with a hasbro toy designer to Shatter.

    I’m thinking of waiting till I see a sale on Carformer Shatter so I can have options like head swap and a few other additions to the jetformer version.

    I am not a fan of the figure, to be honest I never even liked the DotM figure. Sure he looks good with all those nice details, like his vent-chest but it just isn´t my type of figure in this case.
    Thats all I can say about him. Maybe Hasbro could retool him with a beard to make his Last Knight appereance?

    I still have the DOTM Deluxe Roadbuster in package in my closet. Back in the day I almost solely collected Cyberverse so I was fine with the Legion and wasn’t interested in the Deluxe.

    Nonetheless, this guy looks pretty good and fuck it, I’m getting him.

    Roadbuster looks cool. A good attempt. I think a third party company did one and he looked good but this dude looks better

    There's something off about the aesthetics on this Roadbuster figure...Not sure how to exactly describe it...It's like all the detail is overly rounded, like he's made of clay of something...I donno.

    I'm going to pretend that I don't need another Bumblebee.

    Then I'm going to fail at it anyway.

    I think it looks good. I think unlike Dropkick both figures show that she is a tripple changer due to incorporating parts from both alt modes into her robot mode. This jet version even more so then the Plymouth version. I hope that the heads of both versions can be exchanged with one another. Unlike Roadbuster I might get this figure.

    Shatter heads can indeed be swapped. Saw it posted somewhere else

    Don't care about that Roadbuster, looks boring. I thought the premise of the line was to make the most accurate versions of movie characters when in reality they're usually just cheaper and different versions of characters we already got in better form before, as least as far as deluxe figures are concerned. Fake alt mode parts in robot mode, triple changers that don't triple change anymore, lack of paint... That line could have been so much more.

    The last time HasTak tried to do triple changers in the deluxe size it ended in what we got in the Classics line, in short not so good figures. And before you ask/complain/don´t get it why I say deluxe size, it´s because SS tries to have it´s figures in scale with one another in robot mode. So a voyager Shatter wouldn´t work:bay . Also considering they hadn´t to look like any real vehicles meant HasTak could take some libertys with the alt modes.
    Also faux parts were always a thing in any movie line, including Studio Series.
    And outside of a few examples like Prime and Ratchet and one of the 10k Bees out there, is the best version of a movie character the Studio Series version so far.
