    Hasbro renewed the trademark recently so there may be something for the near future, but we have no listings or any concrete information.

    Personally, I’m hoping to get Sqweeks as a pack in figure with a SS TLK Megatron, kinda like Igor or Ravage.

    Interesting, didn't know that. Looks like I might have to try and track down that KO then.

    Ah, thanks for the correct info.

    I'm not too sure a core class version would look great, but since Sqweeks never transformed in the movie, he would be perfect as one of those pack-ins!

    They still made a transforming toy of Sqweeks for the TLK Line. IMG_1636.jpeg

    Bike bots aren't terribly much bigger than what he turns into, and those don't scale well with Deluxes and Voyagers, anyway. He's small but he isn't Brains and Wheelie small.

    Welp, I modified my SS-01. I swapped the legs at the mushroom pegs, making for a transformation akin to SS-49. It loses out on accuracy, yes, but the previous thigh panel actually fills out the calves really well, and it gains an ankle tilt. The alt mode is unaffected, though the but now grinds on the ground.

    I of course detailed it too. 1000007286.jpg 1000007287.jpg 1000007288.jpg

    Nice.

    I really wish '77 Camaro 07 Bee was a better figure to begin with. The stock arms just look awkward, and lack of ankles hurt it.
    But hey, SS-100 ROTB Bee showed us a glimpse of what SS-01 could have been.

    Yeah. I'm hoping they redo the mold with what they've learned from ss-49 and ss-100, but knowing hasbro, the only thing they will learn is another way to sell G1 Optimus in a bigger box.

    True haha, Prime was awful. Worst depiction of him ever. And I thought murder Prime couldn't get worse, but with Murder Prime it always felt like he did it out of necessity and desperation, not because he was cold didn't care or even had fun doing it.

    I had the impression RotB Prime kills because he loves it. He loves to fight and has an ego the size of Unicron

    The intention was to show us what prime was like before he was awesome. That's cool and all, but making him an asshole prior to beeing good is just proving a lack of skill to write a complex character.
    Another error is, that he is supposed to be awesome on cybertron already. Orion Pax is the not awesome Prime. And he is simply more emotional, curious and maybe takes more risks, but he's always had a good heart and compassion towards others

    I agree with you. Since Optimus is like the main face of the movie (and franchise), RotB can hardly be considered worth watching for fans

    I don't think ROTB Prime "liked" having to kill. It's just that 45% of his dialogue was racism, 45% was talking about killing Scourge, 5% guilt, and 5% was for his forced "i learned to not be racist" speech.
    Bay Prime in the first movie killed BC with brutality and grace, but most of his dialogue was the usual Prime stuff. Some exposition, a few funny moments and seeing the goodness in humanity.
    There was none of that balance in ROTB.



    But yeah, worst written Prime.

    Could have been, but accoriding to the wave breakdown (which I don't think got updated since this was posted) the last core figures are in United Wave 5 amd nothing for SS.

    You could argue we haven't gotten everything because no titan or commander, butCores are usually packed with their wave mates so it's odd that we don't have anything for even 2025 Wave 1 for Prime and Studio Series. Ir's a real shame if true, I wanted a new Core 2007 Optimus and ROTF Megatron at some point.

    "He was mine" as he looks annoyed at Primal for killing Battletrap before Optimus could kill him.

    "I'm going to take back Scourge's key and then... take off his head"

    Nah, ROTB Optimus enjoyed having to kill.

    There hasn't been any mention or hint of a KO of MPM Bonecrusher has there? He only briefly appeared in Canada and at the time I wasn't able to grab him. Now it looks like I'd have to get him from the US or Japan and the cost is way higher then retail. Just curious if anyone had seen any posts about it?

    This is the kind of stuff that really killed my enjoyment for ROTB characters reacting as if they’re in video games “kill stealing” rather than actually fighting to save a planet.

    Also it still confounds me that they have Prime and Primal team up for Battletrap and not Scourge - such a missed opportunity.

    Thank you. I'd probably hold on to the Dotm version of I were you, as 01 is not the best figure. I love it because it was my first ever bumblebee figure, but even I must admit that. Definitely go for the repack SS-27 Clunker Bumblebee if you want the mold, as that one is far more solid and far better painted.
