Wasn't this fella supposed to be black? I thought it was an specific character
Me trying to work out from these renders how Mixmaster and Scavenger could form the most complicated part of Devastator without heavy partsforming:
Anybody know why mixmaster is not listed on Hasbro pulse? Tried to preorder everything but he’s missing.
New video! Also, do you guys think I should keep doing these? They're not exactly popular so far and I really have to commit to them if I want to get them out semi-regularly, let alone if I want to keep getting figures asap to make them one of the first videos on it to boost their appeal. Idk, guess I'm just looking for some feedback.
Motherfuckin WHEELIE AND BRAINS! MIXMASTER AND SCAVENGER ARE SO PRETTY! A TF1 MEGS WITH AN ROTF LOOKIN CHEST! SHOCKWAVE! LENNOX! SS is getting me so bad and I hate it.
Preordered the Voyagers and Scavenger. Not quite sold on Shockwave yet.
I think he’s worth it. The renders really don’t seem to do him justice. The one displayed had a cool dry brush effect similar to Grimlock as opposed to the bright purple in the official images.
My mind is made up. SS Shockwave is a HUGE improvement over the old voyager!
Is anyone talking about why we don't yet have a Studio Series Jolt? I mean, come on guys. It's Jolt. We need Jolt. Give us Jolt. Jolt.
There's still plenty of characters that need SS love. The title character from that movie hasn't been done yet.
When Megatron isn’t a completely new mold:
The proportions are just so much better, can’t wait for him
Someplace as hightower's cables
Hold up, where are y’all getting mpm jazz from?!?
After letting it in from today i have a more solidify opinion on these guys
Megatron - Definitely the weakest of these reveals. His robot mode is ok, but i feel is severely generic and uninteresting. Granted his first design is like that to begin with but the MPM proves that it can be done well. Saving grace is definitely the jet mode and (if they keep it) the paint scheme.
Shockwave - My god. He's the opposite of Megatron. His vehicle mode doesn't look too bad but not perfect, obviously due to not having one in the movie or in concept. But his robot is a beast. The detail, the size, THE PAINT! His bot mode is perfect. Brains and Wheelie are an interesting addition but honestly i couldn't care less about them. And the parachute guy is just completely unnecessary.
Scavenger - Such a massive improvement over the original. His in the proper size class, he has much better articulation, he can stand up on his own due to some clever transformation with his treads. He's going to somehow combine with his teammates. He's just fantastic. His vehicle mode is good as well, but i find i bit off, mainly the cab is further back than usually, and the treads are a bit too short. Overall i love him.
Mixmaster - Another well done figure as well. His vehicle is perfect, nothing more to say about it. His robot mode is well done as well, with his lanky proportions and mixer shields. Bit of a backpack but not too distraction. Still not sure how he turns into Devastator's head though. Only major gripe is the paint on his head, it really should of been silver or gray to make it stand out more.
I'm really excite for this wave. With todays reveals and the deluxes from a few weeks ago, this might be the strongest wave in SS yet. I think i might have to get another bookshelf. May god have mercy on our wallets.
My current Constructicon crew, really hate how Hightowers sold out, but I can wait a bit more I guess. slightly edited Kindle 7 camera pic.
Edit: Added my 09 "Skipjack" next to Rampage. I miss the centaur option from the 09 model.
Yep. I ordered from BBTS. But I just placed an order at ages three and up too. Which ever comes first, I will cancel one voyager order from the other. But I may still keep the order for the leader classes.
Skids and Mudflap? Yeah you must mean Skids and Mudflap.
I just know the last 2 will be crazy.
Idk how crazy Scrapper will be, his design is pretty generic compared to the rest. But I agree with you, Overload will be very bizarre and I’m excited to see it
I really hope we get the crab bot version of Overload.
SS-46 Dropkick is a pretty good figure. The transformation to car mode isn't much fun to do (For me, at least), but both modes looks nice, serviceable articulation, solid construction and good sculpting makes this a nice entry of the Studio Series lineup. Not the best that Studio Series can offer, but miles ahead of some of the earlier releases like Ratchet, Stinger and Crowbar.
I do appreciate the novelty of the unique transformation on this figure, however.
I said earlier that the transformation isn't much fun, but once you get it the car mode looks nice and rolls well.
Robot mode is quite stocky and bulky, but not in a bad way. The robot mode is based on Dropkick's initial appearance on Earth in the Bumblebee movie, where he picked his first alt mode (The car mode") and "pops" a random human; Frankly, I think picking that look really helps this figure a bit.
Speaking of "Pops":
'I like the way it pops"
Badass headsculpt, despite the tiny eyes.
