    Looks like a knock off meeting @ briefing.

    "Our intel just received this. Alright peoples lets make this knock off happen in less then 2 months. You at the back there, are you even listening?"

    With these leaks, I really think we will see SS Overload and Scrapper this weekend as well as the fully combined Devastator. Studio Series is just getting better and better.

    I really want to see scavenger now. I’m curious how the neck and shoulder articulations are going to turn out. I’m hoping Devastator ends up being able to pull off jojo level poses

    God he looks so perfect. Hope his stability is good with the giant arm cannon, but it looks like it so far

    I don’t need Brawl’s turret to rotate, I just want the barrel to collapse and/or not dangle between his legs...
    Blackout’s hand redo would be appreciated, and so would Bonecrusher’s upgrade.

    I want to know if the combined mode will be strong enough to stand up straight. I’ve always loved that early Devastator concept art where he’s standing bipedally like a normal humanoid. If the SS figure can pull that off, I might just pull the trigger and get them all

    1. SS-01 - pretty much Clunker without the rust
    2. Stinger - Minor/Repaint: - Studio Series Stinger Backpack Stars
    3. Ratchet - silver paint on face, collapsible roof rack
    4. SS-05 - SS-32
    5. Lockdown - a smaller, more in scale Lambo mode as well as a taller robot closer to Battle Blade Bumblebee than ROTF Sideswipe
    6. Megatron - cover up the hollow back
    7. Brawl - collapsible turret
    8. Ironhide - collapsible bumper
    9. Bonecrusher - upsized to Leader size
    10. DOTM Megatron - could use better legs

    Ooh same here! I like the gorilla walk but I definitely prefer the “upright but hunched over” look from the concept art and the legends toy.

    Even the way that BMB's Brawl's barrel folds would work. Doesn't need to end up on his arm, but would tuck nicely into his back.

    So I know everyone is talking about possible wave 9 reveals and whatnot (as am I for the inevitable overload and scrapper releases), but my main hopes are for an early wave 8 release. Mixmaster is looking better and better every time I see him, and I just can’t wait to get him! Really loving how his head mode turned out, absolutely monstrous and delightful. Now if only we can see some more scavenger...

    It seems like it has a 75% chance.

    Overload seems like a reveal for paris comic con

    Scrapper will probably be in London

    OMG, Shockwave looks so good. And Devy's head! AHH. Why can't all Mondays be this good?

    I’m really looking forward to Mixmaster just because it doesn’t look like there have been any compromises made even though he’s the most crucial part of the overall Devastator figure. And major props to Hasbro for actually putting Devastator’s head in the cab just like the movie. This thing is going to look absolutely badass once it’s fully formed.

    I’m hoping for an early release of wave 8 also. Car Dropkick’s wave has been out for over a month and finally achieved saturation on shelves several weeks ago. It’s weird that we’re having to wait almost 3 months for the next wave of figures.

    It goes without saying it was worth the nearly 2 year wait for a SS figure to happen.

    Wow, I've got to say I think this guy looks better than the MMP version. He looks like he might be the best voyager of the SS line. I think the leg transformation to hide the wings works great. Was already excited for him, but now I really can't wait.

    I love how they got the scapula pieces accurate like the CGI model, and the head is better than the MPM too.
    But there’s still something off about him and idk what. I’m still getting it, but idk, I’m not as wowed as Bee, Soundwave, Shockwave or the constructicons.

    One thing I know for certain is that I’m definitely gonna try to remove those fins from his innermost legs

    Can someone answer me a quick question?

    On SS ROTF Voyager Megatron, the panel that his head sits on, is that attached to the torso with a friction hinge? Or is it pinned?

    The legs don't look as bad as they did before, head and jet mode look way better than the mp but come on, why couldn't they remold the torso piece? Was it a budget thing? Did all the money went to the silver paint?

    Megatron looks great! I’m glad we have another look that’s proper so people can stop saying he’s trash from a single mistransformed pic. And the double jointed knees are so delightful! I’m much more excited for this one now.

    Same! I like it when they stagger reveals AND releases as much as possible. I don’t want nothing for four months then half the figures for the year all crowded into a month or two. Early next wave would be awesome, then maybe the new deluxes in December, then the leaders in feb or March or something.

    Just friction. It's easy enough to pop off, but a little more difficult to re-attach it
