    Finally got me a KSI Sentry! He’s soooo much better than Stinger.

    Sorry for being ignorant, but who is Catz? Do they post here too?
    All sales people think that way. I design consumer products and if one design for a product fails (which can happen for a million reasons) then they never try again. Like imagine “purple nail files didn’t sell so we’re never gonna do nail files again”.

    So that's why they didn't bother using Berserker mold for studio series Crankcase :mad:

    Welp, my interest in studio series died with him.

    FFS could have just used the commander class size....

    Kinda disappointing, but with a new movie in 2022 Studio Series will be going for a while. Maybe they’ll revisit the idea later.

    Honestly, I’m surprised that Devcon was even on their radar. If they’ve been considering it now, I’ll bet they’ll take another look at it later.

    Catz is another user who has a very creditable past his hints provided clues to a lot of Earthrise not sure if he posted hints during siege.

    I haven't been paying attention to everything he could have been creditable since the prime wars trilogy as well.

    I don't think he says much of anything about Studio Series ( that's why I'm here ;)

    Noticed something about Dino. It looks like his torso is flat. It looks like most of the backpack takes the other half of the torso.

    What is part count? Also does Breakaway still have a chance?

    Parts count...is the count of how many parts a figure would require. It's a budget restraint

    I feel like parts counts are going down while prices keep going up. I mean they clearly tried to get Dino pushed out despite not being able to license him. Then again, a very hasbro move to simply give up before attempting to make it. They are the same people that somehow thought decepticon leaders didn’t sell and denied us a DOTM megatron...

    lol yup, engineering is better admittedly but every toy is 50-75% of the size and build quality of 2011 while being 200-250% of the price. something doesn't add up.

    of course, for every 2 people who have standards there's 20 people who will hit preorder for a $20 scout with horrible quality just because it has some extra molded lines, so...
