    What the hell is that supposed to be? They shouldn't be allowed to call this or the Dropkick figure 'Studio Series', they're incredibly inaccurate.

    I don't get all the surprise, it's not that shocking that they rushed a figure of her to have it out with the movie.

    There's the missing shoulder panel.

    It's badly mistransformed. Legs are backwards too

    Ew, she just went from a must have to an easy pass. What a shame because she and Dropkick were badass.

    On a related side note does anyone notice how the best villains are always stuck with the shittiest toys:
    • Movie 1 Megatron (the only intimidating version of the character) has gotten no new toy since 2007 while his only existing toys are shit
    • Sentinel Prime; only has an overcomplicated Leader and a tiny Voyager that carries a giant backpack
    • Lockdown; his first Deluxe sucked, the SS was better but still too small
    • Dropkick and Shatter; too small, do not live up to SS’s high standards

    The funny thing is by the time it comes out the movie won't even be in theaters anymore.

    In my opinion SS Lockdown scales perfectly with the Voyager Knight Optimus and it's one of the best figure of the line, but I'm one of the people who weren't bothered by the size of Jazz or the many Bumblebee in the line so...

    Leader Sentinel Prime is one of the last quality Leader figures on par with ROTF Prime to get released and he's amazing. Once you know how to transform him, he's a cinch. He has practically zero faux parts and how the entire front of the vehicle mode compresses into his chest is genius. That along with how the entire rear of the vehicle mode ends up inside his legs.

    I'd love for a SS Sentinel Prime. But I can't believe that they have the budget and resources to essentially give us a more refined version of the Leader sans battery pack.

    While true, I think it’s all because the Studio Series is supposed to be the “we took our time and made these figures more accurate” line.

    And I get that, really.

    So we get our inaccurate SS figures to go with the inaccurate MPM.

    Who knows- maybe in a couple years they will take another crack at these figs

    I am super disappointed they didn't sculpt her with her face exposed.

    I'm guessing this is because her inevitable jet mode action figure will come without her battle mask.

    I dunno, tiny with little paint is dead on for a SS Deluxe.

    Also, are we entirely sure she won't have a second head much like SS VW Bee?

    Another thing I don't really get. SS is all about scale. So it makes sense that the new Bee is pretty much legends class in size. But both Dropkick and Shatter were significantly bigger than he was. Bigger in scale than they are here.

    At least that voyager Bumblebee Optimus looks good.

    Why is it so small? Weren\'t Shatter and Dropkick BIGGER than Bumblebee?

    If they were roughly the same size, I could deal with them making the vehicles more in scale, because that car looks TINY

    I think she looks good. Her legs kind of remind me of a robotic caterpiller. But mind, I didn't see the movie, so maybe the differences are hard to ignor for a fan

    Shatter\'s rodent-skull-from-hell face was the best thing about her. Probably they plan to make more money off this character with a later, more accurate figure, then I\'ll be more than happy to wait for that one. I have no use for this lazy-ass faced transformer in my collection.

    Is it me, or are these figures getting smaller?
