    All four of them were leaked before Hasbro announced them.

    Good job Hasbro.

    He also has a transformation i’d strain to call ‘boring’.

    The rest of your comment I can just let slide as being a fair opinion and I usually try not to pick arguments against those, but I feel like there's something to be said about this part because I feel like it speaks to a larger issue in this fandom. I very often see large numbers of people complaining about how Hasbro is ripping people off or giving us subpar products and that they can and should do much better with their Transformers. I've seen people say this about every price point, and for both the WFC trilogy and Studio Series lines. There's one thing that I feel like always needs to be said about this. Walk through a Walmart toy aisle and look at every single toy that costs $20 and find me one that has an overall better play value than pretty much any of the mainline Transformer deluxe figures. Same goes for the $30 price point, and the $50 price point. You could pick up any voyager class figure from the past few years and it would be a far more interesting and fun toy than pretty much anything else you could find in the toy aisle for $30. The only brands I can think of off the top of my head that can rival the playability of Transformers are maybe Nerf and Lego, but any Nerf gun is a far less versatile toy than any Transformer figure, and Lego tends to be at a much higher price point for the quality. We're practically stealing these figure from right under Hasbro's noses at these prices. Is $80 for Commander Class Rodimus a pretty steep price for a toy? Sure, it absolutely is a good chunk of cash. But for the sheer amount of what you get, playability, versatility, fun, etc, it's more than worth the price of admission. Every single figure in the line is at least two toys in one that changes fluidly between each mode, yet costs no more than other action figures of the same size and quality that only have one mode and the only playability is moveable joints. We get an action figure with lots of moveable joints, a toy car, and the ability to flip between the two, all for the price of one Star Wars or Marvel action figure. It just boggles my mind that so many people are so blind to how great we as fans have things right now

    What have they done to my boy!? Jolt looks both better and way worse than I expected. And holy shit that kibble is horrendous. It’s like they didn’t even bother coming up with a transformation and said “fuck it, shellformer.” :( 

    Sideswipe looks good tho.

    Seems appropriate that these two would get leaked not long after ROTF's birthday

    Sideswipe is an easy enough pass for me since he seems functionally the same as the DOTM version, just without the guns and an added car roof slash backpack. I do like the more contrasting paint job he's rocking though

    Jolt, uh, I dunno. He looks good, but I can see him being very fiddly, especially when it comes to transformation. But I'm willing to be cautiously optimistic and hopefully I'm proven wrong

    Yeah, I dunno. I'm kinda getting Roadbuster vibes with that backpack, and I did not like that toy

    Anyone know who originally posted those pics on Facebook? I want to share this with the guys on Seibertron but want to give credit to who posted it.

    with the kibble arranged correctly, i think jolt will look really good

    no idea where pixelmaster's doom and gloom for jolt came from, but different strokes for different folks i guess

    I have to eat my words, Jolt looks solid. Goes to show sometimes you should reserve judgement before making an opinion on something you haven't seen. My other complaints i still standby though.

    seems like there is a lot more going on with Jolt though, enough that I don't think it'll hinder the figure as much as it did Roadbuster

    Well Jolt has some kibble clusterfuck on the back already, no surprise Hasbro tried to replicate it with some backpack kibble, it looks messy but i hope the shoulder articulation it's not too gimped by it.

    I was trying to figure out what this was:
    Jolt thumb.JPG

    Turns out it's one of his fingers! The whips replace the finger when used, like what Pixelmaster mentioned the other day.

    While an ss deluxe may theoretically have more playvalue than a marvel legend or gi joe figure, the marvel legends has a much higher chance of actually being good. They have a formula to their figures in which they put out consistently great products that satisfy the market with very few outliers that miss the mark. The $20 price point for ss is probably the definition of a mixed bag and can either give you gold or a figure boarding on knockoff quality.

    also to yall worried about the backpack, the only bit that's a backpack is the folded up roof. the headlights and windows are part of the model

    I knew jolt wouldn't look that bad. He looks fantastic. How I'm not gonna lie he could use a lil bit more blue on his face but otherwise he's a definite buy. I'll be getting Sideswipe too but like I said in another thread I'm not to hyped. He's practically the same with just a roof and more paint. I'm gonna assume he doesnt come with the guns? That doesn't bother me since I have the Dotm version but still though, it'd have been nice.

    As far as Jolt's kibble goes, I'd assume that he's simply not transformed correctly and that his kibble can be articulated correctly. For Sideswipe at least I think they just mainly focused on his do it mode if you get what I mean?
