Not the biggest fan of the movies but i fell for the studio series toys.

Happy Megs 07 will be the last one i need as i'm only getting 07 characters (that and my Mrs will probably kill me lol)

This figure's pretty awesome. I already loved SS05 but the torso on this one really does improve things a lot. Some comparison shots below (though my SS05 has had paint and Toyhax stickers added to it and I'll do the same with this Prime when I get new paint and Toyhax do an updated sticker sheet which should have more constrasting red/blue to match the brighter colours of the plastic)

I'll do the combination later when I have more time.

Quick review
Pros:
Still has much of the playability and posability of SS05
Hugely upgrade torso and more accurate backpack so much more pleasing aesthetic overall
Brighter contrasting colours
Nice gun
Bit taller
Combines with Jetfire.

Cons:
Leg panels which folded over the lowest wheels on SS05 no longer do socos where the joint used to be is now a port (I presume for Jetfire)
Forearm panels now slightly overlap the fists at the sides. Not a big deal but it's something that annoys me on a lot of figures where kibble hides the hands from certain angles. It's not too bad here but compared to the much cleaner way on SS05 it's a lil disappointing. You have to pull the panel away a bit to fit the SS05 swords into the fists here because of it but yeah it's ok.
Isn't quuuuiiite as articulated as SS05 (it's really not hugely noticable but in one of my pics you can see SS05 can bend and lift his knee a bit more
Still no robot mode flames. I know Hasbro keeps skipping on that and leaving it up to Toyhax to provide stickers but I was so happy with the amount of painted detail on Jetfire it's a lil disappointing to still not even just do the torso doors on Prime.
The ports on the shoulder pads are a lil messy looking to me compared to the more accurate smoother shoulders of SS05. Yeah it's for Jetfire but still. By the way the SS05 swords can tab in those if you want. It's a bit silly and not at all movie accurate but eh it's there. Kinda makes him look a bit insect-like. :P
Truck mode is slightly worse at bottom of the sides.

Overall the pros vastly outweigh the cons (the cons just look bigger cos I went into more detail about why I don't like them)

A big complain I have with the ROTF Megatron they released for Studio Series is the bloody hollowness of its body and how small it feels (in fact I dislike it because of this reason).


Studio Series RotF Megatron is one of the BIGGEST Voyager Class figures in the line, though. Even with the newly "embiggened" SS-32 Optimus Prime, SS-13 Megatron is still much taller than him, putting them at a pretty accurate on-screen scale with one another. I think a Leader Class 2007 Megatron would be a bit too big, unless it's a smaller sized Leader and compacts a lot in robot mode. I can see the Leader Class being a good way to get the alt mode right, though, especially with the wings.

I mentioned this a couple pages ago, like DotM Megs, '07 Megs has a very large alt mode thanks to his length and wide wing span that would make him impossible as a Voyager even if he unfolds a lot.

Jetpower Optimus Prime. Pretty darn cool. I like that the parts of Jetfire that separate are really tight connectors so they don't come apart easily when you're transforming just him. I stuck mostly to the instructions but also used online pics for reference when improving the jetpack and making the BFG that the instructions don't even bother with.

Gah, bugs me that in the pic with Ironhide, Prime's torso has ever so slightly come up from the hips (you can just about see the connector piece between them both). Don't ya just hate when you've taken pics of your Transformer figures and then afterwards you see a mistransformed part? Grrr.

I'm going to have to disagree here.

He's not that big a plane, most of his mass is in the "engine", the wings aren't that long and are hollow, the "cockpit" piece isn't that long and his arms don't even Transform really.

Plus the jet mode isn't that big compared to Optimus in the film just like how his bot mode while taller doesn't really dwarf him by a large margin.

So I think a voyager can work.

I still don't get what the point of the extra Prime ab piece that comes with Jetfire is for. Cos the parts of Jetfire that connect to it connect just fine to the one that's on him. Unless it's for the Dark of the Moon version in which I suppose won't have those connectors cos the ab piece is different... oh that's probably it then. Which means we can probably swap the ab piece from the DotM figure onto SS32 if wanted? Also the piece with Jetfire is a metallic painted red (the part on the SS32 is plastic red) so does that mean DotM Prime will be metallic red too? Premium paintjob for a Leader Class price point figure? :O

It's a really fun couple of toys that combine into another really fun figure.
(and damn I wish I had a girlfriend who bought me Transformers figures... or ya know, i just wish i had a girlfriend) :P

Oh if you want the swords you need SS05 (i love how the metal and the orange blade colour scheme go with the overall look of Jetpower Prime). Maybe someone will sell their figure cheap on eBay...but they might keep the swords themselves... I dunno. maybe there will be third party versions like how the gun had been made already for SS05 by Dr Wu who also did hooks and an axe for it too.

Yeah kinda wish I had the whole figure now. I'll have a look on eBay for one and maybe I'll get lucky and find a cheap junker that's only missing it's head. :)


Edit: searching ebay... it's hard to find him when his name is in the title of the movie and most of the figures from it have 'Revenge of the Fallen' in their listing title!!! This may take longer than I expected. :P

Studio Series 27 Deluxe Class Clunker Bumblebee has a pin to hold the floppy roof (English reviews)

Postby notirishman » Thu Jan 10, 2019 9:37 pm

Motto: "If you are right you might be wrong."
Weapon: Dual Low-Radiation 1 Megaton Proton Bombs
We all let out a woeful sigh when we found out about the issue on Studio Series 01 Deluxe Class Bumblebee, that the roof piece constantly falls due to a lack of a pin, stopping the toy from having a seamless transformation... but wait, there's hope! Studio Series 27 Deluxe Class Bumblebee, which is a redeco of the 01 Deluxe Class figure, but with some different paint applications and damage in car mode, indeed has the pin. We get this from the two English reviews below, the first of which was made and sent in by Seibertronian PrimeVsPrime, whose videos you've probably seen on this site. The second is from chefatron, who you have also probably have seen on this site!

The pin seems to greatly improve transformation, and will hopefully make buyers of the original toy less frustrated (IF they decide to buy this one anyway).

So, thoughts? Tell us if you would pick up this new figure and do... what to your old figure!

Video Review of Studio Series 40 Decepticon Shatter

Postby Wolfman Jake » Fri Jan 11, 2019 12:00 am

Motto: ""A mountain with a wolf on it stands a little taller."
-Edward Hoagland"
Weapon: Retractable Mecha-Fangs
It was just a few days ago that we saw some new shots of Studio Series 40 Decepticon Shatter, from the new Bumblebee movie. Now we have quite a treat for all you Seibertronians! TonTon of YouTube brings us a video review of this Wave 6 Deluxe Class figure, due out later this year! The review is in English, though it is a translation, and the narration is done by a computer-generated voice. Ton Ton shows off the coversion of Shatter from 1971 Plymouth GTX muscle car to robot and back again! Also included are some size comparisons in vehicle mode to SS-01 Deluxe Bumblebee, SS-32 Voyager Optimus Prime, and SS-35 Leader Jetfire, as well as robot mode comparisons to SS-18 Deluxe Bumblebee, SS-13 Voyager Megatron, and SS-07 Leader Grimlock. TonTon also describes the sculpting and molded details in robot mode and shows off some of the articulation the figure can achieve for dynamic poses on your display shelves. Interestingly, it seems that Shatter doesn't come with any extra accessories, though she does have a pair of guns sculpted onto her forearms. Take a look for yourself in the YouTube video below!



What do you think of Dropkick's partner in crime from the Bumblebee movie? Will you be adding her to your collection? Or are you waiting for a jet mode version of Shatter? Let us know in the comments below, and stay tuned to Seibertron.com for the latest news on all things Transformers!

I rarely mind much of a backpack, but the extent of Bumblebee's (both Camaro and VW SS versions) is just horrible. This one looks to emulate it, although it works a tiny bit better for the character as she has that "wester duster" style look with the angular pieces hanging down. The alt mode looks amazing though - probably my favorite of the deluxe vehicles so far. I'll get her though - SS is on a run for me.

I was put off of Shatter when those first in hand images popped up, but this video convinced me that she's worth getting. I guess this year, I'll be getting Shatter, SS38 Bee Prime, and Barricade. Don't think I have the encouragement for the others, though I would pick up Blitzwing if he gets done and done good with little to no faux parts.
