    Good Barry for anyone who's not in need of the MPM one. Or wants something scaling with the Studio Series. Swipe looks good.

    WWII Bee... Well, it doesn't look that appealing. Kibbletastic as hell thanks to the post-AoE design philosophy - the bot mode can't really turn into anything so the figure needs to be shellformy. Might get this mold eventually... On a deep sale.

    Sideswipe is looking worse every time I see him. First he looked good, but it was a little disappointing to see him in his DOTM convertible mode instead of the ROTF hardtop. Now he has so much lame gray instead of silver, including the head, which is disappointing. Even Jazz had silver on the head. I’m also noticing that he has faux arm lights, while the real ones are on his feet. These factors combined have moved SS Sideswipe from a yes to a pass.

    WWII Bee was a maybe or a probably, but after the reveal of that third party SS-scale WWII Bee with less kibble and an accurate alt mode, I lost interest. He still looks nice though.

    I don’t really care about the Dreads, but Crankcase doesn’t look accurate. I guess they somehow found a way to double the reason for having Dreads clogging the shelves.

    Barricade is definitely the best one here, seeing as it’s essentially a cheaper, deluxe-scale version of the MPM. I wish it came with Frenzy and had less silver and more black on the face, but that’s all I can see a problem with.

    Bee was an on sight buy ever since I laid eyes on him, nothing has changed since. I couldn’t give any less of a shit about how big his backpack is, he’s Bumblebee that turns into a WWII vehicle ffs.

    Excited for all of these guys, except "Crankcase". WW2 has a bit more kibble than I would've liked, but that alt mode is soo damn nice.

    I just want to point out that you're wrong. This figure has never been shown with those bumper pieces anywhere besides the front of his feet


    Its just you. His entire alt mode is painted silver, which means they're gonna have pull back a little on bot mode to stay in budget. I think it's worth it because that silver Corvette is gorgeous

    Edit:
    You are right, I thought TFW news post had the feet the right way but in this render it just looks different.
