its too early for bumblebee movie toys to be revealed i think they should be revealed in sdcc
Nope. I believe Hasbro confirmed Bumblebee Movie toys at NY Toy Fair.
Indeed. It’s a trade show so they want to show off all the lines for the coming year, even if they don’t display all toys for each line. MLP the Movie Toys were on display last year and that wasn’t due till much later in the year.
Well in that case im excited to see stuff next week
It’s gonna be exciting with so much that seems to be coming out.
Wait, Bumblebee? I know it's the first wave of a line, but what version will it be? TLK Reissue? Another AoE regurgitation? Volkswagon Bee? WWII Bee?
We're getting like 4 lines
Cant wait for next week soo hyped
Can anyone describe what the authentics studio series is? This is the first time I\'ve ever heard of them.
On the leaks there was no pic, just “TF6 Stryker2”. There’s also “TF6 Stryker” listed under a different product code. My hunch is wave 1 will have TF1 Bumblebee, hopefully the ‘classic’ Camaro version, with the VW coming in a later wave with the other Bumblebee movie characters.
Authentics is a budget line with “evergreen” designs of core characters.
Studio Series is a Generations subline with new moulds for mocvieverse characters, including some that never got a proper figure the first time round.
Authentics is a new budget line for stores like Dollar General/Family Dollar. It's mostly very simple Legends and Deluxe-ish-sized figures, but a recent leak showed what appeared to be a box for a more mainline-style Authentics Bumblebee.
Studio Series is the new ongoing movie line. Since it doesn't make much since to dedicate an entire toyline to a movie featuring ~2 Transformers (the Bumblebee movie), Hasbro's instead doing a line with figures from various movies.
The leaked power point said TF6 Stryker, so probably the VW Beetle Beetle.
Oh right! Forgot Stryker was wave one. It does seem more likely to be Bee than anyone else in the movie because nobody knows who besides Barricade will make appearances.
I was already looking forward to a new Shockwave, but a possible Animated nod would make him even better. It’d be neat if they reference Animated in other characters’ designs, too.
That's why I say that hopefully they'll be revealed soon. Just 4 characters. One is Bumblebee. The other 3 will be a surprise. But I'm praying one of them is Barricade.
The standard “deluxe” figures for the bumblebee movie are part of the studio series sooooo...
That's actually correct.
"In the Police Chase scene from Transformers Movie 1, Bumblebee faces off with Barricade as they fight to recover the map to the legendary Allspark. The loyal Autobot scout unleashes his skills in battle to stave off the evil Decepticon.

I don't know if this is news, but I just noticed some new listings on Amazon Italy for Studio Series:
Hmmmm...mv6 blue light...barricade?
The code names are all taken from Australian race horses. Bumblebee's code name is "Stryker", Megatron is "Fox" and Optimus Prime is "Radar". Don't try to read a deeper meaning into them, they're deliberately assigned at random. This is not intended by Hasbro as a puzzle you are expected to solve.
That Starscream is supposedly the ROTF redeco from wave 4.
Bumblebee is "Styker" from wave 3 or 4, not "Stryker 2" from wave 1.
Separate names with a comma.
