    I wonder if this quintet is an entire wave together, and not two waves split apart like the five deluxes we saw at SDCC '18.

    I can see these following the case breakdown used by Titans Return Deluxe Wave 4, where the two retools (in this case, redecos) were shortpacked-
    x2 WWII Bee
    x2 Sideswipe
    x2 Barricade
    x1 Clunker Bee
    x1 Crankcase

    I feel like that would be preferable, more characters on the shelf at once, but the basic Wave 1 rehashes don't need to sit on the shelves with equal staying power to the newer molds and characters.

    I recently rewatched that scene on YouTube and realized that vehicle mode belonged to a completely different Autobot. Bumblebee was actually a VW at that point, not a bug but still had the VW logo on it.

    I'm going to pass on the figure since it's not even the correct vehicle mode.

    I was actually thinking this could be movie verse tap-out. Since it’s a bumblebeeish figure in green it kinda suits.

    Keep in mind that his body itself isn't even modeled after that car; his kibble is based off a British Humber Armored Car, but the scene called for a German vehicle because it was a stealth mission. You can literally see him go from gray to green when he transforms, and the kibble in the movie is very clearly from a much more angular armored vehicle and looks nothing like what he transforms into. I'm not sure why everyone is so upset about this when his alt-mode in the movie is obviously bullshit.

    Anyone else find it odd that we're almost 30 figures deep into studio series, with only 2 leader class? Especially since the movie franchise has a lot of characters that kinda need to be that size.

    It's a TLK post AoE TF design after all...

    High concentration of bovine droppings in the bot transformation is to be expected.

    The only characters big enough for Leaders (barring combiners) IIRC are:

    Blackout
    Grimlock

    Grindor
    Jetfire
    Devcon
    Demolisher
    3 other Dinobots

    Only 9 out of around 90 non-generics, All-spark mutations, and protoforms. A lot of characters could've benefitted from the Leader treatment like Prime, Megs and Shockwave but due to the SS scale that's no longer possible.

    It is odd. I’m guessing they’re either focusing their efforts into smaller and more involved figures or building up leaders for the future. It is weird how we haven’t even got a Grindor retool or a G1/AoE toy coloured grimlock.

    With these figures being from numbers 26 to 30, you'd wonder where will Red Light fit in?

    Because non of that is obvious. The movie designs are so complex and broken up that they don't even look like they can transform at all. The kibble could little really be from anything because he doesn't even look like a Transformer.

    I did the count and if everything from the number of figures per size class works out ( 11 deluxe 6 voyager and 3 leader ) and if the remaining listings we have that havent been officially revealed are indeed part of them then by the end of next year studio series will reach # 45.

    Additionally from the size breakdown and online listings we still have a handful we dont know most being voyager class.

    Hasbro said that Dino would be Stinger with a new head.
