    How good is High Octane Bee? Passed on him back in the day but thinking of picking up the Buzzworthy figure.

    Kinda meh. He has odd proportions and thin feeling plastic for the car panels. Car mode looks good, though, I keep mine in alt mode.

    He’s great if you want to keep him in car mode but other than that he has long legs and his shell is a little questionable in terms of durability it feels like it will break if you pull too hard

    I gotta admit I really don't like High Octane Bee, but here's an AOE Bee figure I do like:

    While DOTM Bee was the figure that got me into customizing, this is the figure that I took out of the box, transformed once, and got right into painting, which is what I usually do now xD

    Last of my Prime Day haul came in Monday, so now it's time for
    STUDIO SERIES 62 REVIEW!
    Studio Series 62 Review 1.jpg

    Studio Series 62 is a translucent blue stand with a swiveling base and tip that rotates around 45 in either direction. The detailing is minimal but it does look cool. The set comes with a really neat backdrop of outer space, definitely one of my favorites.

    Studio Series 62 Review 2.jpg

    The stand isn't very tall, so most figures barely clear the ground. Pretty much only for deluxe-sized figures and smaller. The peg isn't very long, so figures with a more obstructed peg hole can't really use this stand. And since the connector doesn't rotate 90, figures with a stand port on their back (aka most modern TFs) end up leaning back awkwardly like Bumblebee below. If you're clever maybe you can find more ways make it work.

    Studio Series 62 Review 3-.jpg

    The stand works better for Gundams and airplanes. It can hold up a voyager jet pretty well, but I can feel the weight loosening the top joint already.

    Studio Series 62 Review 4-.jpg

    Not as great of a stand as I hoped for, but it's enough to add a little bit of flair to your display or photos.

    Studio Series 62 Review 5.jpg

    Almost forgot, Studio Series 62 comes with a Decepticon Protoform to fill out the deluxe pricepoint. It's a decent and fun figure with an simple transformation, and highly compatible with the stand. Feels it was specifically designed with the stand in mind.

    He seems upset for some reason, so I sent Soundwave to comfort him.

    Really fond of this one, what did you use to make the claw for his cannon arm?

    Very accurate review of the Stand, it served me well since I got it. The bonus figure looks good enough once it's painted.

    I used the clip sections from mechanical pencils! The top on actually kinda plugs in between the cannon and the arm, while the lower one really isn't held in by anything. I actually have one of the same type of pencil I used on my desk:

    Fresh new pfp and a few days of messing with my Prime day haul. Initially all I had was overload, and while fun, he didn’t make me think I needed devestator. But now... Yeah... I need to finish this guy off. This ended up way cooler than I thought it would be, and all of the figures are fun to mess with. No clear plastic joints to crack as well!!

    PS: Satellite soundwave totally doesn’t deserve the hate.

    Is the Buzzworthy figure really gonna be a rerelease of the old AOE deluxe? I saw a post on instagram about it but I was hesitant to believe.

    Guy who posted Jolt and Sideswipe posted these.

    JTprime suggested it might be in an upcoming BB two-pack with Stinger.

    Clever.

    I wouldn't mind getting a chance to get an official release of HO Bumblebee and another Stinger (because mine broke). I hope they go the extra mile and include a backdrop depicting the room where Bumblebee first meets Stinger.
