Transformers ARE action figures, silly. :lol:

I respectfully disagree. Action figures dont transform.
I have 5-inch Power Rangers action figures that are fully articulated and transform from morphed human men into organic-looking dragons. No robotic features involved in those.

Those sound awesome, which ones are they?

I'm guessing it's the Mystic Force ones. They've aged pretty well I think (visible hands aside).

Emerje
Nope. Not those. I've sent Will a PM explaining what they are (they're from the MMPR 2010 line).

Ah, those, didn't really like the looks of those as much.

Is anyone else hoping we'll get a few more Age of Extinction characters in the Studio Series before all is said and done? It would be nice to get, for instance, the retooled Crosshairs from The Last Knight with actual paint apps in robot mode, like on the Autobots United 5-pack version, and his "3D goggles" colored in with red and blue on the lenses. Maybe they could go the extra mile and fix the loose-fitting wheels? That would be a worthy $20 deluxe purchase, IMO.

New Images of Transformers Studio Series Jazz, Megatron, Brawl, Lockdown

Postby Va'al » Sun Apr 22, 2018 8:52 am

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Thanks to regular source of news from Weibo, the user tf-factory or 淘宝店变形金刚改造工厂, and via a notification from fellow Seibertronian westjames/notirish, we have some stock product images of the second wave of the Hasbro and Takara Tomy Transformers Studio Series line, featuring a Decepticon heavy line-up with Megatron, Brawl, Lockdown squaring off alongside Autobot Jazz.

You can check out all of the images below, which include looks at the backdrops, accessories, shots of both robot and vehicle modes with sizes (for the most part), and a couple of comparisons between the actual figure and the art of the character that they are intended to bring to life in plastic form. Give them all a look, and let us know what you think of them in the Energon Pub discussion boards!

Both Jazz and Lockdown look FANTASTIC! Jazz will be a sureshot purchase.

Not much interests in Brawl.

Megatron is quite barren or plain compared to the others. His base plastics should have had a shine like Optimus's red. I'm still getting him though.

Megatron looks to be the same level of disappointment that Grimlock is on, but I'll buy it anyway. I'm going completionist on this line. First time I've done that since the Unicron Trilogy.


The other 3 look amazingballs though.

These look really good! I LOVE that shot of Lockdown next to the Prime 1 Studio statue. Megatron's going to need some silver paint, but the mold looks good.

Also, I'm glad they're using the movie-styled Autobot logos on the right side of the displays now! It was bugging me that the wave 1 figures have a G1 styled Autobot logo.

That Lockdown look WAY better than the AoE version. Even though I have Peru Kill and the oversized AoE KO, I may just buy that one for my "standard scale" movie display.

Brawl looks much better now he's actually transformed properly. He's definitely on the bucket list.

Lockdown looks awesome, I wish he was bigger though.

Jazz looks a bit wonky somehow.

Jazz looks nice, but I'm fine with the human alliance figure. Lockdown is a good design, but I'm not too interested in him. I never liked that Megatron design, so I'll pass on him, despite the competent interpretation.

Strangely enough, Brawl is the one I'm most likely to get. His head looks squashed, but I kinda like him, and i want a nice accurate version of him.

Really don't like Jazz's upside-down chest bumper, or his car hood upper arms. OR his knee pads coming up from his ankles.

Lockdown looks great! And brawl looks better than he did in the stock photos, not getting either one though. Megatron still looks amazing and I'll probably get him eventually.

What disappoints you about Grimlock?


First and foremost, I hate the (lack of) characterization and design the most out of all movie verse characters. So I'm biased.

Second, I found it to be a rather simple figure for a leader class. Plus, the extremely loose and floppy but and crotch flaps in dino mode were a huge letdown. The figure looks really good though, bad design or not, he looks like he stepped right off the screen.

Being complicated or not is irrelevant for any size class. The point is the fun factor and how well the thing pull of the modes.

As for the skirt flaps, it may be a problem but it's pretty minor. Those are not structural like Leader Dragonstorm's dragon forearms. Mine are very loose and my drangon can only have a groveling pose.

Fair comments really. Grimlock’s biggest downfalls as a figure are the front and back skirt. The front pops off way too easy and the rear has no locking mechanism whatsoever to keep it attached as a tail in dino mode. That said it’s still miles above all previous movie Grimlock toys to date, as much as I liked the original Voyager I can’t look on it as anything more than a chibified kibblebot now. Plus the new Grimlock looks fantastic with TLK Voyager class Scorn.
