    I'm fine with playing the waiting game for Live Action Studio Series, as long as we eventually do get all the goods.

    My perennial fear has been them ending Studio Series (at least for the Bayverse cast) prematurely. Even if it takes a little longer than previously thought, I just hope we get all the remaining big names.

    Plus, it's an ease on my wallet for a while!

    Got them months ago. Best to check store if you can, until they get enough stock to stay on shelf they don't get listed online. (Store employee told me this)

    Well I commute once a week past TRU so I check often. Next time I should ask if they can check the SKU. I noticed they already clearanced some Seige.

    Id really hate if I missed out considering I never really got a chance. :(

    Out of curiostiy, what big name bayverse characters are left to do? Please note, this is a genuine question as I've never really cared for bayverse figures except the odd one here and there, and not some snide sarcastic comment.

    Gotcha, yea I can't see them killing the line before getting to them, except maybe Prime and Drift. An AOE Drift was done from the helicopter mold, so while his car mode hasn't been done, the character is accounted for, and if you're not including TLK characters due to premiere edition being the precursor to SS then they may feel that the TLK Prime is good enough for use as AOE prime

    Definitely getting the Voyagers and Leader Grimlock. The Deluxes have hollow limbs so they are an easy pass for me.

    I mean can we really be sure of anything since apparently Kingdom is just excluding two of the more crucial characters?

    I'm wondering now if the Kingdom G1 releases will be repainted or remolded or something and added to SS86 for 2022!

    Unless they're fixing a problem the previous version had. I'd prefer they do characters they haven't done yet or supposedly not doing for 2021 like Blaster and Perceptor.

    Fair point on Evasion Prime

    Huh? A line with a definite end date (Kingdom) excluding some characters is different from a line that is open ended (Studio Series) having characters left to do. One has a finite number of open spots availble, the other has a finite number of open spots available per year. They're not exactly equivalent in that regard

    Well that's depressing. But I guess they gotta make sure every ugly, characterless thing gets a proper toy made. How terrible it'd be if we didn't get yet another variation of movie Megatron or Bumblebee.

    The fact that an overpriced mistake seems to be getting more attention than Beast Wars probably isn't the greatest thing to signal to fans.

    To be fair, it's not like Kingdom is the end of Generations, it's just the end of WFC. Any characters prominent characters left to do (like the 3 missing Predacons for example) are bound to get a release before long.

    No worries at all. Here are who I would consider the remaining important characters to cover in Studio Series (I am not including the leaked next wave, which includes Grindor, Dino and Jolt) -

    1. Skids
    2. Mudflap
    3. The Fallen
    4. Wheeljack / Que
    5. DOTM Bumblebee
    6. Dinobot Scorn
    7. Dinobot Slug
    8. Dinobot Strafe
    9. Galvatron
    10. Hound
    11. Crosshairs
    12. Hot Rod

    And these are a few "nice to haves" that are absolutely not big names, but I think deserve a SS figure:
    - Demolishor (easy repaint)
    - Sideways (a very minor character, but would ultimately be the only robot from ROTF NOT to get a figure at that point)
    - Hatchet (they did 2/3 of his team, why not complete it?)
    - TLK Barricade (first version was so bizarre)

    I have long been of the mindset that several TLK figures work just fine for Studio Series so I'm not clamoring for most of those (Optimus, Megatron, Nitro Zeus and Bumblebee come to mind). So I usually leave those off my list. Some, like Hot Rod and Barricade, could absolutely use an update, though.

    Yeah, if Drift doesn't get a car mode figure then not a huge deal considering they nailed his bot mode with the helicopter version.

    I agree on TLK Prime - and ironically he actually IS AOE Prime because his forearms are from AOE from before he got his upgrade at the end of the film. He doesn't have those forearms in the TLK film.
