Never said new moulds did I?
Yeah, paintjobs. That's very different from entirely new molds or extensive retools.
ER Prime is the closest you'll get to toon Prime if you'll get unless you want to drop $500.
Besides, 86 Prime came out, so no more need to complain about him.
Again, not mentioning retools nor new moulds.
I find it amusing that the only dinobot to use a sword in the series (as his own weapon. Grimlock does use a sword in an episode of season 3, but it wasn’t his own) is Snarl, and he shoots an energy beam from the tip, effectively using it as a gun.
You mentioned how previous Bay figures were rereleased in SS with new paintjobs. But that's all they got. I don't see how a new paintjob could make ER Prime or Galvatron anymore toon accurate besides getting rid of the silver and grey on Prime's truck and legs and making him less interesting.
But that's the point isn't it? Making them more movie/cartoon accurate. Personally, I think the white parts contrast better with the rest of Optimus' deco and it would fix other figures like Springer and Arcee.
Plus, is a good excuse to re-release hard to obtain figures like Earthrise Ironhide, Prowl, Ratchet (the latter could even have a much improved paintjob) and even make a brand new Brawn.
That Daniel is even more worthless than the Buzzworthy Spike and like Grimlock's worthless Wheelie is going in the parts bag. That said this looks awesome and I hope we get the rest in this scale!
Optimus might make it into SS with some retooling to get the bumper to fold into the legs.
I wish Wheelie was a legends figure instead, but I'm glad he at least was made vs. not getting him at all. He can still be used as a placeholder until a better version comes out. Besides barely moving he looks decent. But Hasbro missed a chance at including him in the current Legends figures which I would have preferred over fossilizer repaints.
Legends Wheelie from Titans Return looks good enough for a transformable version until a screen accurate version is made. Same thing goes for Brawn, Windcharger, and Perceptor. Giant inaccurate Blaster and his Cassettes need to be replaced more than these guys.
I really dig how through engineering voodoo, the shins are no longer hollow.
Um Sorry to burst everyone\'s Bubble But they aren\'t going to do everyone in the studio series line. It is for the 35th anniversary this year only. No way we are going to get more constructicons & hasbro is going to do every single character in the movie. If you Notices jazz had More screne time then Ironhide & WheelJack & windcharger.Plus we just got Ironhide & wheeljack, Arcee & others in other lines. They said Sludge & Swoop would be studio Series & Snarl will be another line. Would make more sense too for swoop to be a voyager since he is smaller then the other dinobots. I think they are just doing the main characters & Being since we just got a Ratbat in Seige. Would be nice if they did Blasters Cassettes maybe as a 4 pack deluxe. They could do one mold for rewind/eject. Perceptor they could do he got a lot of screen time in the movie. Thrust we just got in Earth rise & Soundwave netflix.But I don\'t see them doing everyone who was in it the 35th anniversay ust Lasts one year Don\'t forget cliffjumper was in Earthrise too. It is most likely they might show up in another line..
Hopefully, they will come back to this one. I've got TR Wheelie and he's ok, but doesn't quite fit the aesthetic. Gonna be tough pleasing everyone with a transforming one that's in scale and toon accurate, but maybe Hasbro can surprise us!
Disagreed, equal or more effort. It does something different than OG Slag. Shoulders colaspe inward the head hides somewhere and the rear legs go flush.

Oh sh*t, I just realized that if they do a SS86 Prowl they could give him the Siege headsculpt and fix the only problem people had with the Earthrise version.
A SS86 Megatron should have him in battle damage right when he was punched in the chest by Prime.
And yes I know MP did that but still it would be cool.
He will would prob be an ER Megatron mold
What makes people think we're getting SS versions of newer Kingdom figures?
When I see pics of just 2/5 Dinobot team members standing together....
They can't do SS Megatron. You know why.
