    With the references to the Canyon Attack scene and the backdrop, I assume that's Alternate Universe N.E.S.T. Agent Burns, not Sam Witwicky. The Jeep is a neat mold. It works for what it is.

    Can we get an Alternate Universe DotM Laserbeak pink SS18 Volkswagen Beetle?

    I see folks calling this a lazy repaint, but at least it's a different color. The Sweeps... THAT is a lazy repaint.

    I agree that the logic was flawed, but it's noticeable that the 86 figures are taking up most of Hasbro's attention. I would be surprised if we got a Bayverse Leader Class figure again, bare in mind that we haven't even gotten the Fallen. Even if he transforms into the comet shape that Protoforms had that would be cool, and he'd scale with voyager figures because he was tall.

    It’s the 35th anniversary of the 86 movie. So it is going to get a lot of attention. I’m sure Studio Series will shift focus to more live action figures once ROTB nears release.

    If we're going to get picky, I don't think NEST existed in '87 either. So this'd have to be Bumblebee taking on an old nostalgic alt mode again somewhere in the 2008-2010 range.

    there were many pointless Bumblebee repaints since 2007. This is nothing new.

    So, Spike is not in ANY live action movie, even if they called him Sam, he’s not in the Bumblebee movie, NEST wasn’t in the Bumblebee movie, and the jeep isn’t in a Bumblebee movie. What a mess.

    That being said, most of this would’ve been solved with 1) using the name Sam, and 2) choosing either ROTF or DOTM (both of which include Sam, Bumblebee, and NEST) instead of Bumblebee. Strange.

    Well as weird as this release is, this could be good news for other SS figures. This is SS 77, so hopefully that means SS 78 Sideswip is just around the corner. I\'ve been waiting too long for that one...

    This is a different case; this is Studio Series.

    This feels like more of a one-off release in the Gen Selects line, as opposed to a mainline toy in a line dedicated to delivering movie-accurate representations of characters that, you know, actually appeared onscreen.

    Okay, that's fair. I'll give you that one. Though, to be fair, they did swap the hands, while this is a straight-up repaint with a new accessory. Still, yeah, you're right.

    Yes, thank you. This feels even more pointless than it did before. I get that they're maximizing their profits and use of these molds but doggone, man. This is just one of those WTF why does it exist repaints...

    Who says this figure even is "Spike", other than the TFW2005 news story that even says "He comes packed with what was a running Spike and now a N.E.S.T. guy."?

    Seems like a case of telephone game to me.

    My guess is it's supposed to be Sam and whoever wrote this up was misinformed or made a simple mistake. It happens. Either way, the real mistake is this toy's existence.

    Here is an idea hasbro instead of coming up with ridiculous names, name it instead \"Artist proof\" Bumblbe Bee. Still waiting for a mainline Starsaber...
