Where are the giant car front wings and car doors hanging off the legs?
I love the entire front of the robot mode, but this is what happens when figures get downsized. There isn't enough robot parts to break the car bits up!!
I can guarantee that Jolt would've had a much cleaner robot mode if deluxes were still true deluxe sized!!
I still prefer dino as studio series figure off the year.
Well that's that. That's all our bayverse stuff for the year. We can all relax now.
Seeing some leaks I actually want. That's a nice change of pace.
Jolt looks great! His robo junk is a bit annoying, but looks like some of it can be moved around so maybe there's a better configuration. Still bought nonetheless.
Sideswipe I'm on the fence. He looks good, but I'm fairly content with his DOTM counterpart.
Now to wait for Que. Most likely won't see him till late next year or even 2023 is my guess. The new movie will probably the main focus in 2022.
Both of these guys look fantastic!
Sideswipe is an instant buy for obvious reasons.
Jolt looks really good too. Sure he has some kibble and a backpack but most of it is accurate. And the bits that aren't accurate are distributed well enough given the difficulty of translating the CGI model to plastic.
Just a shame that these had to be leaked before Hasbro could ever even acknowledge their existence.
I'm also going to be taking some photos tonight to pay my respects for a certain movie that turned 10 today.
I love how Jolt looks! Sideswipe looks great too.
Jolt looks good as well as Sideswipe.
Yeah, the downsizing has killed my interest in all the deluxes. I just don’t like any of them and they are just nothing but panels and fiddle. Makes me scared to see breakaway. I know he’s a voyager, but judging by jolt, the 10 year old deluxe could easily be better than him...
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun
A decade ago Dark of the Moon debuted! Let’s take a look back...
Leonard Nimoy returns! Evidently Michael Bay wanted to hire him for RotF and Nimoy wanted a role in Transformers again but neither asked the other for the opportunity, so it was pretty amazing that not only did they work it out this time, Sentinel Prime ended up being one of the most memorable characters in the films.
... and suddenly nobody was able to see a silly joke from the first movie the same way again.
While a lot of the plot points where tightly guarded secrets, the ads were all-too wiling to spoil Starscream and Shockwave's demises.
Surprisingly, elephants don't die in this.
"You were always my faaaaavorite..."
Laserbeak... speaks! And is far creepier than one would expect from a talking animal that turns into a pink Bumbelbee.
Decepticons take prisoners! Which was a hell of a thing after all the Demolishor debates, and also right before....
(I mean, the 'Cons didn't keep prisoners, but still)
"Oh this is where Optimus Prime just murders him."
Wreckers and Dreads! The new rival teams that weren't.
Devcon! The most interesting background character in the world.
(I'm convinced there must've been more planned for him at some point)
A toyline ruined FOREVER!
Seriously though, 5mm ports that actually filled themselves in when you take the guns out was wild. They even painted the little plugs on Roadbuster so his 88 decals didn't have holes in them. Sure as hell ain't getting that anymore...
@Smokie Is this a face you want as your new avatar?
They cast Swipe in much darker colors than the DOTM version so the painted silver really pops.
Some, they've been able to get decent bots from, but some, like aaall the Wreckers, even though Leadfoot is better than the other 2, Jolt, B127/ Cliff, and Lockdown all have ridiculous kibble on them.
I just have to ask... what the hell happened to the headlights???
Yes I love it. The kibble is accurate, and the “wings” can be folded down. I don’t display my figures from the back
I think it's purely how the toy is constructed.
Based on how Swipe transforms, including the headlights would have meant that those clear bits would have been hanging off his toes or his heels and wouldn't be able to fit around his wheel feet in robot mode.
Jetwing is still my favorite movie Optimus Prime figure. Happy 10th anniversary DOTM!
They probably forgot they existed.
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.
