    Can we please have movie-accurate steel gray and not the weird chromed silver and bronze of the AoE mold? Please?

    Yeah, Studio Series will be around with us for much longer.
    Hasbro's main selling point is the Nostalgia factor of the sub-line.
    They will release it around when TF Bee movie comes in.

    True but I think both shoulders have the upper half of the dinosaur head since it has screwholes and an earlier leaked picture has the head on the left shoulder.

    Yup that crossed my mind as well.....

    To my mind the dino head and dino jaw of the Left arm is the tru dino head in alt mode. I feel like the right shoulder will have a full head that will gey hidden in the back or rear haunches area in dinomode

    Obviously this leak is meant to create mass confusion

    The TLK figures were silver, so they’re heading in the right direction, though he should really be slightly green, but Hasbro doesn’t understand ‘slightly’ lol

    Well, that "slightly" is actually an iridescent patina. So they'll either have to mold him in a super dark, pearlescent green plastic, paint him with iridescent paint, or just "drybrush" some green highlights over a dark base to achieve a "close enough" look. Not sure if they can budget in either of those solutions, but would be nice.

    From the look of it, look like this one still not gonna nail the T-Rex tail for me, still waiting for G-Creation to nail it down.

    Oh I know what the green is, it still makes him look more green than just a metallic grey, in the same way that Scorn is a rusty red etc. The Platinum AOE Leader did try it, and was ok to a point. The Movie The Best voyager didn’t do quite so well. I just think if they’re going with the reddish Scorn, bluish Strafe and goldish Slug they may as well make Grimlock greenish, given they’ve all got their own individual tarnishing colour. A drab olive would be enough.

    Very likely that Megatron will cameo in Bee's movie as Bumblebee is likely to tell Charlie his backstory eventually or how he lost his voice box, or some other manner of setup flashback material somewhere. So that would be Movie 1 megatron since that's how he left cybertron and then was frozen to reawoken.

    And likely yeah, in this new movie line, eventually all bots from the movies will probably get covered. Though some may get minor tweaks/re-releases instead of full new molds if it seems more cost efficient to do so. Sentinel in particular I could see them doing that with. Same to the Fallen with his removable head version being colored correctly to match the movie and include his actual hands and staff.

    Can't wait to see what they do for Cogman and Botanica, err, I mean Quintessa.
    Kind of hoping for a voyager packed Cogman, that's a re-release of his TR TLK mold, but also includes a GI Joe 4'' Cogman figure.

    Kind of hoping for the same with Nitro Zeus and he gets his TLK mold re-released, and then they include Thunderwings titanmaster in plastic as an additional head.

    Do hope a voyager Bonecrusher gets made though!

    I wonder, looking at the right foot front center toe horn. Since it is not present on the left foot l assume it is a separate part. Perhaps it swings uner and becomes the dino foot\'s middle claw in tge way Deluxe Scorn did. In fact to me, this whole figure seems to borrow heavily on Deluxe Scorn\'s transformation and engineering.

    The left foot might just be swivelled around wrong. Hard to tell due to the white colour washing out the details. Also very possible that the left foot is just plain broken.
