This toy is just a reshell of the TLK bee, so this instead confirms that these toys will be as complex. We now have 2 deluxe toys in this line which share a mold with TLK toys and in both cases its a bad sign towards quality, since that TLK bee and Berserker were far from stellar toys.

Anyone expecting more than TLK will be very dissapointed.

We are getting a new starscream, jazz, stinger, leader blackout, leader grimlock, ironhide, Rotf megatron, and brawl. I’d say there is nothing disappointing about that.

The only thing that would disappoint me is if they don't show or at least confirm Lockdown in this line at New York toy fair so I can cancel my preorder on :TAKARATOMY:'s Movie the Best Lockdown.

Whats with the gigantic box is this their new ploy to try and trick you into thinking its worth the over priced amount they're going to charge? I have a feeling im not going to be buying a single one of these until they go on clearance, hasbro has officially priced me out of deluxes.

To be fair, if the figures have ROTF level of details, engeneering, and paint, it's now worth that price. The Generations ones remaining at the "normal" price because they are much simpler.

I wasnt talking about the content. I was simply answering someone who beleived that these toys would be better than the TLK ones. And I see this notion floating around elsewhere as well, people hoping that the Studio Series will be like mini MPs.

If people are hoping for high quality figures that are more complex than what we have seen lately, then yes I believe people are setting themselves up of disappointment.

Think of it this way, everyone was excited for a Titan Class Fort Max. There couldnt possibly be anything disappointing about that right? Turns out there could be.

Great example of what I am talking about. We know based on the mold we already have that this particular Bumblebee will only be so so.

If all we are expecting is new toys of these character we like, devoid of specific quality requirements, then there wont be any dissapointment.

The box is due to them coming with a display backdrop and stand, you can see it about half way down the back of the box on the right.

That new Bee is awesome! This convinces me to pick him up! My War Hammer Bee should be coming soon considering I never saw or found the wave 3 one at a price under $32, which is about the same price I'm paying for him to come with a hammer. And he will look good.

Funny thing that the first ever body and the most recent body Bee appears in are using the same mold, kinda neat.

Still gotta see Stinger and Ratchet better to decide if I want them, but I like the Buzzsaw on Ratchet. My only Ratchet is the RotF desert tracker one. And I want Stinger but still need to see him better to see if I will go for him.

Crowbar is a must. Now I just gotta wait out a deluxe Hatchet and Leadfoot to complete Wreckers and Dreads.

Price Tags Found in US for 2018 Studio Series Transformers Live Action Toyline

Postby william-james88 » Mon Feb 12, 2018 10:56 pm

Fellow news staff member D-Max has sent us word of a fellow fan finding some new price tags at their local Meijer's. @damnyouwillis on Twitter posted three images showing the prices for Deluxes, Voyagers and Leaders from the Studio Series line. This is the Transformers toyline which will bring new toys for Live Action movie characters from across the previous films. We have already seen a few of these, like this deluxe Bumblebee, and they appear to be a mix of brand new molds and retools of previously released toys.

Meijer's is a retail chain that orders directly from Hasbro and has standard retail prices for figures so the prices found give a good indication at the MSRPs in this line. It is the same standard MSRP we have seen so far from Hasbro for the Transformers: The Last Knight toyline and even the recent Generations toyline. The prices are as follows:

Deluxe: 19.99
Voyager: 29.99
Leader: 49.99

Up until now we had absolutely no clue as to when these would be released but the price tags being out now is a good sign that it can't be too far away. The figures making up this line will hopefully be revealed at the upcoming Toy Fair, though we have no confirmation of that.

Here is a list of the figures said to be part of the line:

Using that and all the info we previously saw, we end up with this as the contents of the 2018 Movie Toyline (known so far):

Deluxe

Bumblebee
Decepticon Stinger
Decepticon Crowbar
Ratchet
Jazz
Lockdown


Voyager

Starscream
Optimus
Megatron
Brawl
Ironhide
Starscream (different deco)


Leader

Blackout
Grimlock

Here's a question: how many toys will be licensed? Bumblebee and Crowbar are by pedigree, but the rest? I'm especially curious about Stinger as his Deluxe toy was a quickie redeco of Bumblebee, but his One-Step was a licensed Pagani Huayra.

There are 2 distinct toylines confirmed. Though it is unsure if the BB movie line will have toys oriented for older fans as well.

All of the dates were 2017, from April to November, so I still insist it was a really dumb typo on the part of whoever made the slides. Considering the state of the leaked products we've seen I think the April arrival will hold (but not specifically on 4/20, I think that was a bad joke on the part of the slide maker, the rest of the dates are on the first).

I remember when rotf and dotm figures came out, deluxes, voyagers and leaders were $11.99, $21.99 and $42.99 respectively... and the toys were also larger by comparison. I have a feeling leader blackout will be a tad shorter than rotf leader prime.

There is nothing definitive, but best guess is around April. Also California has been the place for a few of the first sightings of TFs these past few years.
