We were supposed to get a bumblebee based on his vw beetle alt in the first wave buy then the film was pushed back so they gave us the camero instead with the beetle coming later (along with the rest of the toys to advertise the movie)

Let's hope Beetle Bee will be a completely new mold with better engeniring and none of the QC issues than "Hammer Time" Bee.

I would like to think so, I mean given the dimensions of a beetle they would have to do something to make sure his height in both mode was the same

So I got Grimlock the other day, and I'm a tad disappointed as well as impressed. This is my first ever movie Grimlock figure, as I positively despise the characters aracter and design from that series. The size and faithfulness to screen design is great, but mine may be a tad loose in spots.

Namely, the underside of the tail doest stay in place, and flops down. I'm hoping I'm doing something wrong, the instructions are that worthless dark print crap. Seriously Hasbro, why must the instructions be worthless?

I'm gonna watch a few youtube videos, see if I can figure it out.

I think that's just how the figure was designed, unfortunately. Mine stays up fairly well but will still flop down, and I've heard a lot of people have the same issue. I don't personally mind it since I'm displaying mine in robot mode but it would've been cool if they'd added some pegs so it could (Grim)lock into place better. The toy is frickin gorgeous either way, I was impressed by the painted detail and that he barely fit in the box!

Maybe we might end up getting a new Voyager Sentinel Prime figure based off of his Leader toy! I think that would be great for Studio Series, although I would also like a new, more accurate DOTM Soundwave at the Deluxe scale. Cheers to seeing what it might be in the future!

Transformers Studio Series Leader Class Grimlock and Blackout and all Wave 1 Found at Walmart Canada

Postby william-james88 » Mon Apr 16, 2018 9:52 am

Walmart Canada now has the entirety of the first wae of Transformers Studio Series available in their stores, including the leader class toys Grimlock and Blackout. The voyagers and deluxes are also present and those two classes can also be purchased on their website. The prices are the new MSRP based on the price jump from the Pemier Edition Transformers: The Last Knight toys, where deluxes are $29.97, voyagers are $39.97 and leaders are $69.97.

These toys are trickling across North America right now, at various retail outlets (Target in the US now has the leaders for instance) and opinions have been mixed but generally more positive than negative. Many wonder if this line will continue and Hasbro already did confirm more toys coming, such as the toys for characters from the upcoming Bumblebee movie that have been pushed to a later release in an attempt to be on shelves closer to the film's release.

Ouch. Are they serious about those prices? Does it really cost them that much extra per unit to get them on the shelves in mass quanity? Or is that just using the economy as an excuse to f**k the general public? Oh well...at least the free health insurance helps build up some extra spending money.

Those are Canadian Dollars, which are a little higher in value than American Dollars.

None of it, its just BS. Because the Power of the Primes right next to them are 19.99 for deluxe, 29.99 for voyager and 54.99 for leader. I highly doubt the added production cost of th Studio Series line is 30% more than the cost of the POTP figures. Its just them looking at what they can get away with as a premium price for figures percieved to be premium.

Those are Canadian Dollars, which are a little higher in value than American Dollars.


But as you can see with what i describe above, there is still a gap between two lines. The US has that too, I think, but not to this extent. And plus, even though our dollar is worth less, its not like we make more. In nominal value, similar jobs result in similar take home pay between the US and Canada (maybe less in Canada due to added taxes). And we both have dollar stores that sell similar stuff for a dollar or two. Our prices are generally the same, at a nominal level, hence why Americans feel like millionaires when they come here. My dollar may be worth less but I am also paid in this crappy ass dollar, so its not like raising the price to cover change in currency makes any sense when that is all someone has to pay for it. These toys are becoming simply unafordable.

So yeah, that grimlock is pretty cool. I find the articulation a little more limited than I would expect but th deco is nice. I dont get how that tail works though and what I am supposed to do since its made up of 5 pieces and nothing tabs together.

One cool thing though is that in all the images of this toy even in hand images from fellow fans, I never ever realized that his robot hand (and in fact the entire arm) is right there in beast mode for all to see. But I never did. Pretty cool how it just blends in there and is hidden in plain sight. Helps limit the excess kibble. Dont know if this is toy of the year material though.

Yes please.

I am so stoked for a movie generations line, and there are many good things that could come from the line. I want a new Bonecrusher so bad, and a large Demolishor would be awesome too. Imagine, since he doesn't really need to content with feet and he's a small body with wheels and arms, how tall they could make him at leader scale. He could have 1 wheel folded down inside the box if they went that route.

Also just figured out that the AoE Dinobots are not much smaller than Devastator (please give us a toy of him with proper transforming components please!) and Demolishor would be about Grimlock sized at the tops of his wheels

Regarding Grimlock's long soft back flaps (which quite frankly, I dont think were necessary and dont add that much to robot mode), I transformed him according to instructions and they settle just fine even being against gravity.

I do really like how everything is hidden in plain sight.

As for blackout, I expected worse for the panels, ala Sentinel Prime or ROTF Jetfire. This is fine. Its not perfect though, here is what I end up with:

For the most part, my Blackout fits together well. The side panels may take some messing with to tab properly, but once they’re in, they’re pretty much in. There’s only two spots that bug me panel-wise, but I can overlook them, because I’m honestly in love with the bot and alt mode.

8D7851D6-AB69-48B7-A832-39444010CD20.jpeg


There’s a gap here, which is apparently common. It seems that’s just how it is. The right and left joining pieces, for me, fit together terribly. I don’t know if the connectors just suck, but the mechanism keeps separating them. Takes some trying. I did obviously get them together though.

10F15772-C840-4B07-A476-CD04400B6E14.jpeg


It bugged me, at first, that this panel doesn’t go flush with the side of the body, but I think I can overlook it now. Not sure if there’s no clearance for it on the inside, or what.



So it’s not without its issues, but Blackout is definitely my favorite so far from this line. It may actually be my personal favorite figure from the over the last few years.

Since the SS series is quite young ad wont get a top 5 list for a while, I am thinking of doing an article showing their rank. Like Wave 1 from best to worst. But you know what, its kinda tricky. BB is at the end, Grimlock, Starscream and Barricade are in top 3 and the rest is all kind of muddied. Like not really sure who is better between Stinger, Ratchet, Crowbar and Optimus. They are all ok but not phenominal and all have really obvious flaws.

New Voyager Optimus Prime and Bonecrusher coming to the Transformers Studio Series Line

Postby william-james88 » Tue Apr 17, 2018 1:28 pm

The TFCN Facebook page had a listing for an upcoming Bonecrucher toy but since it was using a placeholder shadow image of the older deluxe toy, we waited until further proof before newsing. Well, it only took one day and now we have proof of an upcoming voyager Bonecrusher as part of the Transformers Studio Series line. Funny enough, he comes to us as one in a pair of new listings with the other new listing being none other than the bot who destroyed him, Optimus Prime. The code is different from the voyager Optimus Prime from wave 1 so it is most probably him in a new body (probably his Transformers The Last Knight body). Or it might just be a redeco of the wave 1 voyager, just as the upcoming Sarscream toy is simply a redeco of the wave 1 voyager.

The info comes to us from Mr Chaos who provided many early codes and listings in the past. This is what he shared on the TFW2005 boards:

TRA MV6 STUDIO SERIES BONECRUSH E3745
UPC 63050976995
PRICE: $29.99

He is listed with a new Optimus listing:

TRA MV6 STUDIO SERIES OPTIMUS E3747
UPC: 63050976996
PRICE $29.99

That’s a really accurate assessment, but I’d say OP is better than just “okay.” Out of all of them, its Blackout, Starscream, and Prime that I keep going back to. He’s a lot of fun to mess with. I’d put his balance and playability above Ratchet, Stinger, and Crowbar. Although Crowbar is definitely a lot of fun.

If they're smart, Hasbro/Takara should just release Battle Blades Optimus Prime again with a premium, screen accurate paint job. That would rock my world. If that were the case, I'd probably bite and start collecting the Studio Series line. Right now, though, the current Studio Series Voyager Optimus is just a complete disappointment. :(

Is he even the right colours? I have lots of problems with this toy (why fake parts on a character full of obvious kibble?!) but the part I find so weird are the colours. I keep having the impression that the red is bright on screen (similar to the ROTF toy) and yet this toy has the red be burgundy. Where does that come from? He looks much much darker, almost as if they are tryingto simulate the lighting filter they use on the character models for a night scene.
