    Dropkick is just as disappointing as Shatter was. Really basic transformation. Why can\'t they make them look like in the movie and be triple changers?  Pass.
    Prime is gonna be the first Bayformers Prime I buy, honest. I bought TF5 Megatron already, but none of the Optimi impressed me so far until this one. Of course, given that even video reviews of this guy have been out for weeks, this is not  a big reveal.

    It’s already hard to make good triple changers when they’re Voyagers with Cybertonian modes. Deluxe triple changers with Earth modes would be near impossible.

    Why can’t they do something that’s probably impossible to do right even at the MPM-level on a deluxe toy? Gee I wonder....

    Plus this mode is movie-accurate already.

    Anybody remember this: New Studio Series Listing

    This Dropkick is on the listing! I was confused about that. Now we know that it's a Dropkick transforms into his muscle car mode.

    Could be proof that the other figures on the listing will be made!

    Plus, chances are Hasbro may release an SS Deluxe Shatter that transforms into her VTOL jet mode!

    Did you somehow not realize that it's hard enough to make triple changers with made up alt modes, much less those with alt modes that need to resemble realistic real world vehicles? In the movie aesthetic on a walmart budget to boot?

    I\'m a little taken aback by the hate towards this Dropkick. I\'d say it looks loads better than the helicopter version, at least by the robot mode standards. Id keep the helicopter version for the alt mode and display the upcoming one in robot mode. At least this one has the poppy gun

    I've thought all along that this listing was legit. I still stand by that no matter what some friend of a friend who created a fake list rumors may be.

    I think it's worth pointing out that the Titans Return line was chock full of triple changers and there was at least one mode on each of those triple changers that just wasn’t good. I mean, if they can’t pull off a triple changing toy flawlessly in a Generations toyline, I don’t think they could do it in a movie toyline. Making Shatter and Dropkick triple changers would be an absolute nightmare.

    Me too!

    Transformable ROTF Construticons that combine to form Devastator and a Deluxe Class Dark Of The Moon Hatchet are a long time coming!

    I wonder if there's a way to put the copter blades on the car version bot mode.

    Wasn't there a blurry pictures of Dropkick that people assumed was fake or Photoshop Bumblebee? Because this looks similar to the picture.

    Finally a Dropkick we can be proud of.

    I agree as a visual and media standpoint. But the plastic quality is super nice in the Siege line that in hand its just a more fun experience handling WFC:S compared to SS. I kinda wish HasTak put all their resources & upgrading to this good ABS hard plastic for the Studio Series line alone because damn that would be a nice line!

    Optimus still looks awesome, but that Dropkick’s calling to me, man. It has more of the shapes and colors I want from that character, and the head looks better in my opinion. I hope this means Jet Shatter is coming to us soon. I need my Modern-Day Strika.

    Pass on both.

    Now that Hasbro is bothering with characters outside the main 5, there's really no reason to pile of the Optimi! :rolleyes2  Especially if you have space concerns, the constant flow of Optimus figures is just irritating!

    I love Dropkick's copter mode! :D  The muscle car feels a whole lot less inspired and unnecessary, imo.

    As a wheel slut, I'm pleased to see they got the placement pretty much correct.

    I hate not supporting Dropkick and Shatter as characters but I'm holding out for bigger MPM figures that triple change.

    Same. It's a breath of fresh air for hoodformers and I hope more we see stuff like this in the future.

    Maybe well get a Voyager Dropkick that transforms to the helicopter as a redo/apology. Because that movie 2nd design is awesome! :D  (especially if they can figure out a triple changer. But I know the licenses, budget and all that so it won't be done.)
