    This may be more accurate (I have no idea), but I still prefer the MTB version. These legs look better though? Maybe? Maybe not. I don’t know.

    Digging the automorph and c-bar joints he has.
    Can't wait for Mixmaster to get reviewed soon.

    We already got Lockdown.

    Also, I'm no engineer, but if there were a hinge where the windscreen meets the hood so that the back could fold in half it would have made for a cleaner bot mode. But I don't know if that is possible.

    In the spirit of Soundwave, I'd say DOTM Leadfoot since he never had a true US release either. But being a Nascar themed release, I can see some red tape with it involving the Nascar team that owned the 42 car and its deco, Target which was the primary sponsor, etc. Unless they just give him a generic style paint job and the Mad Max style alt mode.

    For everyone's reference on the headlight pieces:

    Lockdown's been done, though I wouldn't put it past them to redeco Shadow Raider into Lockdown, which it should've just been in the first place. The new Bumblebee will undoubtedly be remoulded into his ROTF and DOTM forms, plus both his AOE forms and his Cybertronian and Jeep forms are needed (the first of which could be remoulded into Cliffjumper). Then there's a more accurate Bugatti Drift, a new evasion Prime, both of Optimus's Western Star forms (with the different weapons, as well as Nemesis Prime), Junkheap (leader class package of three combining deluxe figures), Canopy, Daytrader, Trench, Lieutenant, Bulldog, Onslaught, Dreadbot, Mohawk, and Harrier Shatter plus the countless redecos/remoulds of Blitzwing they could do. They may well well throw in a Citroën Hot Rod for good measure.

    I'm so disappointed with Laserbeak. Both he and Scorponok got screwed over with a piece of shit gray plastic totem in this line and no doubt they'll do the same to poor Ravage twice. This is why I perfer the concept toys over this line and all the more reasons why I WANT to see MPMs of smaller cons like Frenzy instead of this.

    I've had people tell me scale was important with Studio Series but since they are doing the three pack of Arcees in SS, I would not say no to three packs with transformable and/or articulated Frenzy, Scorponok, and Ravage and a second set with a better Brains, Wheelie, and Laserbeak.

    I want him.

    I don\'t care about the kibble.  I don\'t care about the lack of sonic carbine blasters.  I don\'t care about where the paint apps are lacking.

    I just want him...

    It's a weird world we're in where screenshots of a video review will get front paged while the video review itself will not.

    Soundwave looks good, but he needs one of those headlight restoration kits.

    I agree, though it is accurate. The films oddly made a lot of characters smaller than Bumblebee. Basically, if they were a car, 90% of the time Bee was the same height or taller. Silver cars in particular always seem to be smaller than Bee. (Sideswipe, Jazz, Soundwave...) It's really weird that they chose to make Soundwave of all characters so short.

    I love the studio series.

    I’m still pissed about not being able to get human alliance Soundwave at a price I would deem reasonable. Hopefully we’ll get a masterpiece version at some point.

    Having a full set of proper wreckers would be awesome. Same with the dinobots.
