    Now when Hasbro does their next fan first day they can spend fifteen seconds on Studio Series by saying ‘we know you all have already seen these so we won’t waste my time on them. Here’s Waspinator!’

    Jolt's pretty exciting, since this is the first toy that's based on his on-screen appearance, which itself is damn near impossible to make heads or tails of. Don't care for the whips, although it's kinda hilarious you replace one of his fingers with them.

    Sideswipe and Jolt both look gorgeous!

    I must say, as fans, we're so much more grateful for reveals and leaks after a difficult year for SS.

    Nah. All they had to do was mold them in, just like they did on the arms. They didn't even have to paint them in. That was just pure laziness.

    That said, he still looks great, and I've been looking forward to getting him, so he's a must buy for me!!
    Hahaha!! I replied to your other post, btw.

    Fair point. My mind went instantly to the ROTF toy and doing the headlights in clear plastic but you're absolutely right that they could have molded them in. I think octobotimus might be right that they legitimately just forgot they existed. In a way though I think the car mode actually looks sleaker and more elegant without them.

    Regardless, Sideswipe looks amazing and I'm definitely going to be picking up at least 2 copies.

    Wouldn't that be some shit, if they really just forgot abt the lights lmfao. Funny though I made a joke on Insta abt him being more aerodynamic. :D 

    2 copies though?? You my friend, are a true fan lol.

    Sideswipe is...the DOTM figure with a roof, unsurprisingly. Probable pass.
    Jolt I hope to pick up though.

    Jolt looks great! I was really worried the other day with what was said about him, but he looks like a lot of fun, like the type of figure that you can pose the kibble how you like best.

    Swipe looks good too, the silver really pops!

    EDIT: Just noticed Swipe does have a much larger backpack. You can see the hinge hanging down between his legs.

    Yeah 1:1. Have the Hasbro Scrapper but he's part of Devy and I wanted one to display seperate. If MT finishes their OS figures I'll get that Scrapper in a heartbeat, along with Overload and Scavenger.

    Sideswipe's car front missing the headlights gives off the same nonchalance as SS01 using the TLK head sculpt. Lazy and uninspired shortcut.

    Whereas Jolt, who has only really been represented twice (ROTF & DOTM molds), feels extremely inspired. Love the amount of unique sculpting he has vs. his past counterparts (ranging from headsculpt to the chest turbines)! Definitely a figure I would seriously consider paying full price for

    Already in love with Jolt. He's way better than Pixelmaster's description of him!

    Sideswipe is an easy pass, though. Sucks Hasbro got too lazy to give him a fully new car mode instead of just a half-retooled one. Where are his damn headlights!?

    Hrm. I'm really not certain about Jolt. That is a lot of kibble sticking out of a lot of places. I mean, I'm glad they're not just shoving the whole car onto the back, yet the thing still looks to have a sizable backpack.

    Ok I have a few minutes now Jolt looks “horribly mistransformed” but with a little fiddling should look better his head is a little weird though looks off from his actual movie head.

    I knew RoTF Sideswipe was gonna be a slightly less better retool but it’s good for the people that missed the DoTM version so at least they’ll have another chance to grab the mold

    I gotta say man and don't take this wrong ppl, it's just my opinion. I honestly think Jolt looks better than Dino

    I know my guy said that he mistransformed the shoulders but I can’t confirm if he figured it out before or after the pic

    even then it’s irrelevant because the kibble still clashes everything so you have nearly 0 shoulder articulation
