    SAME!! Though, I'm still PO'd that for being the "Studio Series" and both 'Cons clearly being Voyager-ish size in the trailer, all we're getting are some measly deluxes... o_O

    So let me get it straight.

    Red light
    Blue light
    Red lightning
    Blue lightning

    Lightning basically codeword for car mode.
    Light basically codeword for flight mode

    So if there is going to be a studio series Shatter jet mode, we have to wait for a listing for studio series red light?

    This is both great news and bad news at the same time. The helicopter Dropkick was a total fail so Ill be happy to get him in his car mode to go with Shatter. But I must admit, Dino would have been nice. I think he will come eventually. They brought us Stinger. They brought us an actual VW Bee after all that licensing BS. Maybe 3rd party can break out a nice Dino. Toyworld perhaps ? That Sideways repaint is way too big to scale with SS figures anyways. Now where is Hatchet ? I need to completevthe Dreads and yes Berserker is my Crankcase...

    Is Bee worth it? I just feel he’s a bit small for the full price and that backpack is just dreadful. I feel I’d be more into Dropkick if he was closer to a voyager size. I know it’d be out of scale but it just sits a bit more right to me.

    Walmart had all SS on sale for $16. So yeah. I got Bee and Dropkick. $20 is a little steep, I gotta say. But I am quite happy with both at the price of a regular deluxe. They been the (4th?) Crankcase all to heck and back. Bee is quite good, and Dropkick could easily be the toy of the year. His transformation is just that good.

    I don't get why people say Helicopter Dropkick sucks. I think he's a fun little toy. If nothing else, if this turns out to be true and we get a car mode Dropkick, I'll just swap Chop-Kick's head out and make him a random grunt.

    I am down for both Dropkicks. Because holy hell he's a boatload of fun.

    However, this does make me hope 2020 is the year of missing DotM SS bots. Leader Devcon, Voyager Sentinel, Deluxes Wheeljack, Soundwave, Dino, Bumblebee, Wreckers... Oh, and just for a change of pace, have a deluxe of that one pickup truck guy from the Chicago siege to have a generibot. Not sure what size Shockwave would be.

    Yeah. In Australia they sell a Studio Series deluxe for $35. Which is around $25 USD. It’s kinda lame so I only pick selectively. Which is actually fine since I only like some designs.
    Yeah. I’ve also heard it could be a good enough rotorstorm or swift. Will you do a similar thing if they announce a jet shatter?

    Does Hasbro even have the ability to license Ferrari for toys?

    IIRC it's still tied up with Barbie Co.

    It depends on how it looks honestly. Maybe she'll come with the mask-less face in that release.

    Bunch of people were talking about customizing the Deluxe version into Rotorstorm. Nope, this is Rotorstorm right here. Just gotta get some knees into this sucker. And maybe full hips. Can't tell if they go forwards/back here, or only sideways.
