    Probably as likely to happen as SS86 Optimus.

    Damn this looks good! Instabuy for me. Makes me wonder about the future of my Toyworld Dinobots.

    I thought about this too, I just hope if they do Shockwave, there's something interesting and unexpected about him....because he easily be kinda boring.

    I think Hasbro might be changing his name to "Slug" in the last minute before releasing him, because UK...

    Yup. The only Dinobot we're NOT getting is Slash, cuz she wasn't in TFTM.

    I wish we knew for sure if there were toy deco versions coming too as I'm in for buying two of each so I can paint one into a toy deco myself :S

    yes but Some are saying that Kingdom Galvatron isn't proportionally right. And Ultra Magnus's trailer doesn't match the g1 version.

    I think it may have been Wreckgar39 or Pixelmaster?

    Unless we're talking about the Cyberverse S4/TV Movie line? That one also has a full complement of dinobots that could be a lot of fun :)

    My only complaint after looking again would be the red in the knees. I don't get why that's even a thing when they could have just used gray plastic

    I ... genuinely like this one. It's the first correctly colored Slag Hasbro has released in 35 years!

    Great shot! Effective and loyal Dinobot. He looks like he's about to slag up some Decepticons.

    This is phenomenal.

    Cant wait to see my favourite Dinobot, Sludge.

    There was a rumour we were getting the Insecticons in '86 as well right? They are going to be brilliant if they come out as good as these guys.

    I'm hoping for the Insecticons in the 86 line, then the Deluxe Insecticons as Selects. Unless of course they mix the Deluxe Insecticons into the Kingdom show and then can just release them in the regular Generations line. Insecticons would fit into the G1/Beast Wars mash-up of Kingdom nicely to unify the brand universes.

    He looks great. In my opinion, it took way too long to get a well-proportioned Slag from Hasbro. I had to rely on Fans Toys' and even Planet X's (Fall of Cybertron) versions for outstanding improvements. Regardless, I'm very happy he's finally on his way.

    Galvatron and Ultra Magnus are not going to be in Studio Series.

    i think this studio series line is part of as larger show accuracy thing that is appearing in multiple lines right now. personally im happy as it allows me to get definitive versions of the characters i have personal connections to. i like to think most of the g1 haters would be more accepting of that as the sooner we get the best versions of the characters the sooner the g1 juggernaut will stop selling! which is when hasbro will stop making it "all about g1".

    as for slag i think he looks brilliant! the power of the primes dino head and frill just seemed a wee bit too aerodynamic for my tastes and they were tiny as hell. daniel is a meh i'm hoping the red series gets a line of in scale humans or the super 7 stuff does more characters than just spike.

    the missing sword thing is a limitation of this being a movie line grimlock only got his rocket launcher because there is one scene where the dinobots use weapons and its their guns..sort of as due to the animation cheats it is hard to tell what slag is holding. plus even if you take the cartoon into account only snarl was ever shown to use his in animation.

    If the character appeared in WFC they won't appear in SS86.

    There won't be a SS86 Optimus.
    There won't be a SS86 Galvatron.
    There won't be a SS86 Ultra Magnus.

    They were originally meant to be in the same line, and now they aren't. So it's not like we'll be getting any them anytime soon if ever.

    I don't know why there shouldn't be SS86 versions of characters who appeared in WFC. Earthrise Optimus is not as cartoon accurate as seen in the movie, Kingdom Galvatron is even worse with all that ugly battle damage, Kingdom Ultra Magnus is a POS and needs a brand new mould to be worth buying but besides that, is also missing the Autobot symbol on his shoulder. Same case for Siege Springer, Earthrise Arcee, etc.

    Besides, other Bayformers previously released in other lines were re-released with better paintjobs in SS so there's a precedent for that.

    There's a difference between a better paint job and doing a new mold but okay.
