    I don't see how that's possible. We've yet to see any footage with them and we haven't even seen Shatter's aircraft mode.

    Just realised no one's seemed mention that there's finally a deluxe Bumblebee with the foot wheels in the right place. Shame they couldn't have engineered that into the other SS Bumblebees.
    Yeah I have no doubt Red light(ning) is Shatter. In the Energon igniters Shatter and Dropkick have at least one fig for each alt mode. Blue Light 2 turned out to be the Power series car; the deluxe chopper was listed as Blue Light 1 in some listings which leads me to believe Nitro Blue Light 1 (it isn't just Nitro Blue) will be a chopper Dropkick in the Nitro series. There have similarly been listings for Red Light(ning) 1 & 2 so I image it'll be the same for Shatter. I just hope we get both modes in Studio Series eventually.

    the question box was a story/my day on their instagram feed, so it was only there for a day. it's not something they posted on their feed.

    So I’m loving that sideswipe, but there’s one problem. The spoiler still isn’t black. That black spoiler adds sooooo much to his alt. mode!!!

    Black spoiler? Ewww....(no offense)
    I always hated all these black racing hoods and roofs and parts on a nice shiny metallic paintjob. It looks like they got in a car accident but couldnt afford to pay the body shop to paint the new part for a another month. Keep in mind I grew up in a different era where it was all about candy paint and deep dish rims.

    Agreed. I dont understand why people would want identical bodies either. Berserker has the proper body thats unique. And why people would want Crankcase to have long golden dreads that he didnt have in the movie? Just buy a 2nd Berserker and use som 90% alcohol to remove the red "X" from his chest and you got Crankcase. I would leave the red knees since Crobar has some red on him too though. I fail to comprehend what Hasbro was thinking with the Crobar repaint and I highly recommend the fandom bash the choice online and at pannels every chance they get until Hasbro makes things right.

    Eh, to each is own. I personally like the visual contrast that it adds to the all silver alt. mode.

    No actually im dead serious. Hasbro pays people to read these sites and see whats trending with the fans. The whole "kids come first" is a front. Kids are playing with iphones, x boxes, and RC drones. We fans run this brand with our wallets. The whole reason generations and studio series exist is for collectors. Just look at the crap kids are getting for cyberverse. Its very clear we collectors are the driving force behind the brand. If you dont want to use the platforms we have to speak your mind, thats your choice.

    Maybe it's based on the scenes in DOTM where the CGI car used for transformations erroneously had a silver spoiler? (best seen when Sideswipe returns to vehicle mode from stealth-force on the highway chase)

    :lol 

    :lolol 

    I'm glad we've got people like you keeping things light around here. Sometimes discussion gets so serious and negative, a good laugh once in a while is welcome.

    Huh, never noticed that before, guess I always imagined it was the gloss black reflecting sunlight.

    I was cracking up reading this thread. Wow.

    Back on topic folks. I think I'll just use my DOTM Crankcase instead of buying the new one.

    Barricade will definitely be bought, same goes for Sideswipe. I just hope there will be a voyager Bonecrusher before the year ends or maybe even a 07 Megatron.
