I'd Counter, why does he currently have BW Inferno's face on himself?

His head is kind of a mixture of the ones below.
The beak design of his forehead reminds me of (movie) Starscream and Airazor and there's kinda an antennae design, too, which reminds me of Waspinator.
The eyes also remind me of Waspinator's and now that you say it I get an Inferno vibe from him, too.
Edit: And the way his head widens on the bottom is also Starscream's design.

Waspinator was the first thing I thought of when I got Thudercracker in hand finally. The molding on top of his head is totally reminiscent of Waspinator's antennas. I'd love to see a Waspinator made out of this mold.

Motto: "Are you telling me you could've been a Camaro this whole time?!"
Weapon: Plasma Cannon
Just realized I never gave my thoughts on studio series Bee!

He's great! I gotta say, this is one of the few figures recently that I don't feel like the paint is lacking. It is missing some paint apps that I plan on painting soon, but it's nothing major. I especially like how they molded the feet yellow and painted silver on them as opposed to leaving them gray like the TLK Bee. The plasma cannon is probably the best out of any other movie Bumblebee, I think it's the only one that gets the size just right. The only problem I have with the molding is the forearm shields, they remolded them but left the forward pointy part that should be absent on this version of Bee. Again, not a big issue. Vehicle mode looks great, the weapon storage is a little weird but at least there's somewhere for it to tab in. Also, the backdrop/display stand is super cool. Didn't think much of them at first, but having one in hand they're pretty sweet for display.

Bee's the only one of these I have so far but I'll be picking up Prime, Blackout, and Starscream soon. ;)^

I was only going to get Starscream. After getting it in hand and being blown away, I'm now looking to get a few more. I have Blackout on order and most likely getting Grimlock.

Not sure if it's been discussed yet on this thread, but I was wondering if this is a line that will continue past wave 2. If so, any guesses on likely figures in future waves? Any chance of a leader Jetfire?

All we know from leaks is that Ironhide is in Voyager wave 3 and Voyager Starscream with the markings from RotF is wave 4. A Deluxe VW Bumblebee will likely be in Deluxe wave 3 since the movie was bumped to December when it should have been in wave 1, that was semi-confirmed by Warden at Toy Fair. A leaked Japanese solicitation listed two more unnamed Leaders. That's it for now, there'll probably be a lot more announced at SDCC.

If we ever get a new figure of The Fallen, would he have to be Voyager or Leader to be in scale? If I remember right he was pretty damn big.

Well I’m glad to hear there’s at least a chance for a couple more leader class figures. I’m trying to figure out who they would be likely to do. I think The Fallen, Sentinel Prime, RotF Megatron, or DotM Megatron would be likely candidates, but I’m kind of hoping we get a real good, new leader Galvatron. I never picked up a single AoE figure, because none of them looked remotely appealing, but I particularly remember every Galvatron figure looking abysmal.

I don’t think a leader Jetfire is going to happen, since Takara already released a Movie Best figure of him. They’re not going to have two of the same figure, in two separate toy lines, released almost at the same time.

To keep things in scale, which they’ve done really well so far, I can’t see it being a Voyager. It would have to be Leader class.

Honestly I feel like most of those guys would be leader candidates, they'd be too massive as far as scale. I agree on the Fallen though, maybe him and Jetfire or Scorn? Or, in my wildest dreams, Long Haul. There aren't a ton of characters left in the movies that are leader size besides more Dinobots and Constructicons (who I'd be more than ok with). As far as Jetfire, the Movie Best lineup didn't stop us from getting a new Jazz mold, or RotF Megatron, so I'd say that wouldn't make a difference at this point. I could see Bonecrusher potentially being a short, bulky leader in the same realm as Blackout, but mostly I just really want him and a new Barricade to finish off the first movie cast.

Given that megs and prime were more or less the same size, I can't see them doing any leader class megs for this line.

I thought we were getting a movie 1 leader Megatron though? Maybe I’m wrong.


I didn’t think of it until just now, but a leader Long Haul would be pretty great. He was huge, so it would be in scale.

I think them's bad stock photos cos I seen both figures look better in the toy fair type pics. Definitely buying Megatron even though I had hoped he'd be painted silver and such. Think his 'toes' are meant to seperate a bit further than shown there? I dunno. But yeah definitely getting that one. Brawl's a maybe.
I have anxiety, depression and aspergers syndrome so my behaviour can be erratic. I don't mean offense to anyone. Just very picky about my Transformers collecting. You're all cool! :)

Dislikes: Bumblebee movie (lousy rehashed dumb crud), TFA, G1 cartoon, IDW G1, BW/BM, MP. The entire concept of Autobot Megatron

Does anyone else think that Brawl is a new mold based on/scaled down from the old leader figure? It's probably the hole in the front of the tank that reminds me of the old leader. I'm still getting both as soon as I see them in stores :D ;)^

That megs looks like an improvement over the 2009 voyager (though I did have fun with that toy) Brawl though looks very badly mis-transformed, are the photographers that pressed for time they can't spend a moment or two to fully work out the instructions?

The photographer thing is a classic. And I can bet that sometime or most of the time, they don't even have any instructions and must play it by hear.

Isn't everything in this line a new mold? Bar 76 Camaro Bee, which takes engineering from Age of Extinction Bee, everything else is a new mold.

As to whether it takes cues from the Leader class Brawl, I would say its hard to take a defined vehicle mode, and turn it into a defined robot mode and not have similarities to other figures that do the same thing.

But no, There are quite a few differences, such as the placement of the tank treads the way the turret transforms and ends up on his arms etc... Its very much a new mold, not using anything from the other 2 molds other than looking like Brawl.

With that said, it does look pretty good, and does make me want to get it, if only to see how far engineering has come in 10 years. I still own the 2007 deluxe Brawl, and really want to see them side by side.

Got my Grimlock from Amazon today, and he really is gorgeous. The paint apps make his details pop even better than the pictures, and his transformation is a breeze.

I only have one problem with mine, and unfortunately it's kind of a big one. The hinge on the back "skirt" on mine is extremely loose. Not a big deal in bot mode, but in beast mode it's just supposed to fold up under the tail and stay put, there's no pegs or anything for it, and mine keeps flopping down and giving him an ugly butt flap.

It's rubbery plastic, so I've kind of half-fixed it by folding the tips of the skirt over the top of some of the spikes on his tail to hold it in place, but I'm worried over time that will warp the plastic. Anyone having a similar issue?

We haven't seen Deluxe Bee Movie Bumblebee, Voyager Ironhide, or Voyager RotF Starscream with the marks all over his jet mode. Ironhide is supposed to be wave 3 in September and Screamer is wave 4 in November. Bee was supposed to be wave 1, but where the movie got pushed back to December there's most definitely a Deluxe wave 3 and 4 since they wouldn't put that figure in wave 2. Plus a Japanese retailer order list included two more unnamed leaders. So the line is definitely running to the end of the year and there's likely several figures we haven't seen yet. No Voyager Bonecrusher, though. Not in 2018 anyway. If the line continues into 2019, you never know.

Emerje


Would guess one of those two unnamed leaders is Grindor. Do the Blackout mold in lighter gray plastic and new head and you're done. We already know they're doing repaints with Starscream getting his tattoos, and I'm sure some people would want Grindor to reenact that forest fight from RotF anyway. That's easy money, and I don't see Hasbro passing that up.

So really, its just a question of who the last leader would be. Constructicons would be cool, but they're such minor characters in the big scheme of the movies that I doubt it. Would guess something like the Fallen, another Dinobot, or a Jetfire that can combine with the voyager Optimus somehow. Not a lot of other BIG bots that make sense for that size if they're trying to keep stuff in scale.

Its the TLK Bee. Also, Crowbar has the same pieces in alt mode as Berserker.

Image

Voyager Starscream is based on the DOTM deluxe and Ratchet shares the same transformation as the DOTM deluxe but the molding detail is different.

Image

So I would say about half these toys are not 100% fully done from scratch. Half are based on previous toys for these characters.

Oh and Thundercracker is just a redeco with a new head.

So I would say about half these toys are not 100% fully done from scratch. Half are based on previous toys for these characters.


Strange how the two Ratchets look about the same size there but I have both the Studio one and the red version of that DotM figure and the Studio one is taller.
I have anxiety, depression and aspergers syndrome so my behaviour can be erratic. I don't mean offense to anyone. Just very picky about my Transformers collecting. You're all cool! :)

Likes: Bayverse, Marvel UK G1, Geoff Senior art, '86 movie (more for style/soundtrack rather than Star Wars plot)
Dislikes: Bumblebee movie (lousy rehashed dumb crud), TFA, G1 cartoon, IDW G1, BW/BM, MP. The entire concept of Autobot Megatron
