Wow.. never knew this excisted.. I like the look of it, to bad it is all an add on
Who makes it?
I wouldn't really bother with dropkick as their cheapest shipping option is $10, making him retail price again. Think amazon has him up for less.
No idea.. What I can see is that the where to get it link is japanese or chinese.. witch I don't speak or read..
I was looking how to best make the armoury, cool unit trough, it sadly does not transform
Bit the bullet and ordered almost all of Studio Series Wave 1 2020 on Hasbro Pulse. 20% off is probably a good a deal as I'm going to get on these guys without playing the waiting game, which doesn't always turn out well anyway.
Trans Craft. They're a newer company. Their first figure is Mohawk, due out in December. Their Bee looks amazing. They're also planning on doing all the other Bumblebee characters.
Ah damn. Shipping is so high on some of these collector sites. Well if anyone is planning on shopping a lot of their other deals then this could be good. They have other studio series stuff on sale.
Same here. Canceled my orders with amazon and reordered with pulse. I am not a premiere member so I only got the 10% but it was still cool. I really hope these ship when they say they're going to, unlike dotm leader Optimus which ended up shipping like a month after they said.
I missed out on ss dotm prime during megalopolis black Friday sale
The one thing i was really looking forward to, fine ill pay retail hasbro
Made my first YouTube video. Please be kind! And let me know any comments or ideas for future episodes. Man this is embarrassing but here we go:
I am honestly not convinced he was actually available during that sale. And if he actually was, they must've had, like, 4.
I know that it's always quite fun to find hidden features in figures, but I never understood the hype for the combined Arcee robot. Those designs look awful separately, let alone mangled together into one.
I'm still a bit disappointed they didn't use the predominantly better Ben Procter Arcee design from the first movies development.
Theres previous evidence of pre-tooling in the line too, SS01 has the slots for the body kit that came with SS15.
Whether it was real or not i did not get the main thing i wanted to get

Huh so DOTM Optimus's jetpack is Siege compatible. Anyone have the large effect parts from Siege Jetfire? I'm curious to see how they look.
Firstly, I really miss that old Ratchet toy despite how blocky it is. Secondly, a reveal? When? What proof of this do you have?
I really wish someone would start mass producing the effect pieces. I really want them but I have zero desire for the figures they’re packed in with. Why can’t dr wu or someone just make an effect pack for like $15 with several in there and nothing else? That would be so great.
Finally found him!
37 days until MPM Ratchet's revealed.
Alright everyone, gather round for one of Sideswipe's good ol' Studio Series updates.
I got my Amazon copy of Jazz today and was shocked to find him shipped in just a bubble envelope.
Lucky I'm not a mint in box collector, this would make me furious.
Popping the new Jazz out of package I was immediately greeted with better tolerances. Everything felt so much tighter. The front grill pieces wasn't spinning wildly, the legs didn't feel as shakey. All around it felt good.
But then I noticed the paint apps on the shins. Not sure if it's ever been reported but Jazz may have gotten a running change on the gold color. Even the gray plastic used on the gun looks a little darker on the Amazon version.
Taiwan ebay version left. Amazon right.
You will also notice the hinges that clip the hood into place are not warped on the new Amazon version.
Also, backpack tolerances are much nicer.
If anyone is curious the only difference between the two boxes was a sticker on the Ebay version.
The stamped numbers were 81171 for the ebay copy and 81841 for the Amazon version. Not sure if it has any merit but I figured I'd report it.
Overall I'm very happy with my new copy. The only thing I need to decide now is how to return the copy as I don't need to Jazzes in my collection. A thought did occur to me but it's a little tiny bit dishonest.
I obviously like the claw hand more than the 5mm leg hand so I could theoretically swap the hands so I have 2 claws and return the floppy copy of Jazz with 2 5mm hands. But that would potentially mean the next person down the road would get a Jazz with only 5 mm hands, unless I can stipulate that this return is for a defective copy and should not be resold.
Not sure what to do. I'm open to input from you guys.
Anyways, that wraps up story time for now. Goodnight
