That may have been a goof given that Jolt still had toys released for the 2010 and DotM lines.
The resident Rewind... well, half of one :lol:

- Jelze Bunnycat =:3

Looking for:
- TR Furos (Hardhead's head) and Crashbash (lost him :()
- PotP Punch head

- CW Stunticon limbs (Drag Strip, Dead End, Breakdown, Brake-Neck, Offroad or TFCC Grabuge) + Blackjack
- TR Twinferno & Grotusque
- Greenlight, Lancer and PotP Elita-1 (plus repro Victorion hands and feet?)

They really couldnt have given us this in the last fanfirstfriday but instead just give it a post. If it were vice versa and 86 movie figure got revealed in a post it would have been treason but because is bayverse its fine :evil:

beyond anything else, it's just poor business sense to neglect product like that, they've lost out on pre-orders to actual brick and mortar sightings, like not even rare ones, a lot of people have nabbed grindor or slag already - myself included, that's revenue they can't recoup with pre-orders now #-o

It feels as if the Transformers brand team are still working out the kinks with online reveals, it was clear in the last couple of Fans First Friday streams that the guys were really uncomfortable. These figures should've been announced months ago, but for whatever reason they decided to dedicate the stream esclusively to 1986 and push back the other reveals. It feels like this "Studio Series Sunday" reveal was rushed out because someone at Hasbro noticed the figures were leaking on the internet and even appearing in stores ahead of thd reveal schedule. I also see no reason why the Studio Series stuff, both regular and 1986, couldn't have been announced in the same stream as Kingdom wave 3 back in April.

In the past, the brand team would only ever talk directly to consumers at large-scale panels at comic-cons and toy shows where they'd reveal a full six months worth of product all at once, but those have been illegal for a year and a half, and it's clear that they've never really got used to doing reveals like this.

I’ve noticed this. It’s wild to me how much better things were just a year or 2 ago when they could make their reveals at comic cons and such. I hate to say the grass is greener, but I just can’t wait for those days to come back. The anticipation of waiting on line all day for the live streams of the TF panels at cons for massive reveals, waiting for the pics of the prop displays to be released so I can finally get a good look at the new SS and WFC figures, it’s all just a good time. You’d have thought that they would at least try to replicate that excitement in their FFF’s, but whatever. I’m just crying up a storm now lol.

Why would they homage Armada Thrust in a film that homages the original Transformers? TRUE not everything has to be about The Transformers, but it was obvious where the BB movie was taking its designs from, and it wasn't Armada.

I'm really not upset, just pointing out a lack of logic/consistency. They can call him Sunstorm for all I care, it's just odd is all. Also good to know how high you can count since ONE person stated it was based on Armada Thrust, and one other person quoted it.
Probably because they didn't want to have three red Seeker jets in the movie (the other two being Starscream and Blitzwing), and Armada Thrust is the better Thrust.

I'm happy to see some homages to the Unicron trilogy. Plus to be fair he is still a conehead like in G1

Quick question:

Why is Battle Damaged Megatron (SS-31) listed for preorder on Target.com?
Is this a new/improved deco?
This is one of a handful of SS figures I'm tempted by... So just more curious than usual.

They’re rereleasing it and the SS-24/25 Bumblebee 2-pack. Battle damaged Megs has a new head sculpt and gunmetal weathering paint work. I’ve also heard it pins the leg panels that like to pop off on the original.

Thanks for the info. I figured he had to have at least something new...
I'm so tempted to get this guy, although I have nothing from SS.

Also, really impressive customs work on that Scrapper!!!

Over the past few weeks, Target has been re-releasing some of their exclusives that sold out very quickly. Doing some quick math I figure I saved at least $250.

Greetings. For anyone who has SS Grindor I am just curious. I'd like to see a comparison photo with Ravage and any of the Lionizer type WFC Battle Masters. In my mind I keep thinking Ravage is just a non-transformable retool as they look very similar, however they may be different in size and scale. Any pics would be appreciated. Thank you so much.
Bucket/Want List:
1. Micromaster Combiner Sixwing (1992 Takara) 2. Botcon 2016 Customization Class Ratchet (G2 Deco) 3. Botcon 2016 Customization Class Ratchet (Marvel Comics Deco) 4. Botcon 2016 Flash Sentry

Original Combiners Still Without a Modern Release: Raiden (TT MPG), Road Caesar, Monstructor, Dinoking, Landcross, Guard City, Battle Gaia, & G2 Defensor.

No pics, but I can confirm that SS Ravage is most definitely not a retool of anything else we've seen. He is tiny, about 1/2 the size of Lionizer. I'll try to get some photos later.

^ No rush, but I appreciate the response.

Another question I have just came up...it kind of crosses over with the Buzzworthy line. I know that SS74 (RotF BB) first was released in the Buzzworthy line, but is now getting a standard SS release late this year.

I just noticed one of the new Target 2 packs has a 79 "High Octane" BB. Is this truly something new, or just another repaint?

Well I guess we know 78 is RotF Sideswipe, and if 79 is this new "High Octane" BB. we still don't know what 77 is yet correct?

So I was a little off on my size estimation, Ravage is about 2/3 the size of Lionizer, not 1/2, but definitely not a retool or even shared parts.

20210730_131821.jpg


SS79 High Octane Bee is both new and old. It is new for the SS line and will be an individual release as SS79, but I believe he is just a re-release of High Octane Bee from the AoE toyline.

Yep the brand team seems intent on kicking the bayverse fans in the nuts over and over again.

Not sure on what will be SS77 yet, but most likely a deluxe since 76 is BB Thrust.

Awesome, thank you so much. Yep definitely different toys, but without the comparison, you could maybe see the similarity in the leg designs that might make me think there was some shared parts initially ;) .

Also, yeah that is tough luck. I know there have been a few TLK toys rebranded as SS, but they werren't that far off. But I think this is a first, taking a toy from 2014, and slapping it with some new paint and calling it "SS" 7 years later?

While ss79 is high octane bee, that specific toy is not new. It seems to be a rerelease of the AOE high octane bee. Which is too bad since many were hoping for a new mold if that design.

While rotating some displays last night I pulled out SS KSI Drone (blue stinger basicly, which is what I refer to him as :lol: ) and remembered what a nice little deluxe it is! Sure the articulation is not the most extreme and there is a good chunk of .. car? hanging off the back of the calves but that really doesn't stop me from enjoying the rest of it. Transformation is one of the less fiddley car ones out of the SS line and it's pretty neat how everything tucks in and spins around so compactly.

So for SS Deluxe cars my top list (in no order) would be Jeep Bee, DoTM Ratchet, Blue Sting and Dropkick although Dropkick while I do love requires some major patience to get into vehicle mode which could be a deterrent for some people

I'm curious what other people's top car Deluxes would be

I've owned 07 Movie Ratchet, 76 Camaro and 08 Camaro Concept Bumblebee, Barricade, Sideswipe, Jazz, Lockdown and DOTM Soundwave. Out of those I'd say I like 08 Camaro Concept Bumblebee and Barricade the most, I still enjoy switching them between robot and car every so often. I sold Ratchet, Sideswipe and 76 Camaro Bumblebee on Ebay recently, but I may get the upcoming ROTF Sideswipe because it does look to be an improvement.
