    Hopefully Studio Series Sunday becomes a reoccurring thing

    Also… why is Jolt’s background the Chicago battle from DoTM?

    Finally decided to not be lazy and find some batteries for this badass:

    Because Hasbro. The figure looks great though!
    A little late to use the "planning stage" excuse, no? ;) 
    No, anyone with the Matrix could have done that. Also, from a storytelling perspective the fallen wasn't really that important to the story aside from things that happened millions of years ago. Honestly they should have just had the constructicons go to revive Megatron, then he reveals that some of the knowledge of the fallen/primes and the sun harvester was imparted to him by the allspark that he was killed by, and he leads the cons to the pyramids. Also, the twins could have been replaced with the arcees and sideswipe so the other new (and better) characters could have gotten SOMEthing to do besides "show up for a cool action scene". This would have been a cleaner movie.

    Why did they not reveal sideswipe?

    I think the fact that they haven't even put up pre-orders just shows you how much hasbro is assed about these reveals, or the studio series in general.

    Again it was because it was of the Twins fighting that the Matrix was found, any other Autobot in that scene would've just walked away like the rest of them were getting ready to do.

    Also it was because of The Fallen's ability to use the Matrix that allowed him to operate the Sun Eater. If any Deception or Autobot could use the thing Megatron's revival would have been unneeded as it was shown through Wheelie that other Decepticons had knowledge of the device or Cybertronians that did.

    Both were necessary to the plot of the movie.

    Jolt having a DOTM backdrop is kinda funny, everyone remembers the Chicago battle sequence from ROTF, right? xD

    I've been working on Scrapper and have the robot mode mostly done, hoping to have the whole thing completed by the end of this week or into the weekend. It might be my favorite of the Constructicons I've painted, excited to share it with you all!

    This crew needs a Mohawk! Its too bad the TLK villains not only were repaints/retools of older characters, the personalities are regurgitated as well. PXL_20210718_173013603~3.jpg

    They should put up the preorder listings in the following days.
    But this has happened before, the preorders don't always go live the same day the figures are revealed. I think Marvel Legends Sylvie doesn't go up on preorder until late July, and Ravage doesn't have any preorder listings either, because he's scheduled until later this year

    MT-01 Rampage arrived. Scale be damned, there will be a Devastator, Primus willing…
    Also, Twins. 3B674B0B-09EE-4FA0-8A63-2D7C0F1F5B68.jpeg EADC9068-7778-470C-B4D2-158CBBA31868.jpeg 2E662BD6-E2FD-46C8-864C-B929E6A6D582.jpeg 6BF5D041-4B5A-4C67-900F-DCDA3FD34FE5.jpeg

    Like every BMB/AOYI/Mechanical Alliance, the plastic is light and sturdy, feels unnaturally smooth and the edges are a bit more rounded than the officials. No added diecast (which will be good given the SS Devy has some weight related issues if I recall). Some rough cut tabs from sprues I need to sand down, though. They have some nice paint apps, but they honestly feel quite plain, and I’m tempted to give them a full recoat, possibly making Rampage into Skipjack if the other 4 MT come out… I don’t have enough parts to attempt combining yet, hopefully they are still coming. I’m happy with just these two for now, though.

    They got the super obscure detail of Jolt's actual onscreen face right, but completely whiffed on the background scene. Better than the other way around, I guess? :confused: 

    I hadn't realized Sideswipe was a different wave, which gives me the vain hope we get a couple more Movieverse bots alongside him.

    Just goes to show Hasbro probably ran out of artwork or doesn’t want to pay them to make anymore scenes and is now recycling them.

    when was the last new background?

    I did some quick searching and I think the last time we got new/original backgrounds was the wave 10 deluxe figures of ROTF Soundwave and Bumblebee Cliffjumper. That was the first time we saw the moon background and the first time we saw the Cybertron background (which has since been used 3 more times if you include Thrust).

    *This is also assuming you are not factoring in SS-86 figures.


    Also, glad to finally see some more live action movie toys get revealed. It's a bummer how this entire wave got revealed and Jolts incorrect background is a disappointment but I'm still happy that the reveals happened at all. Looking forward to getting Grindor to complete my forest battle cast!
