We had a whole fanfare of upcoming movie news for a while until everyone was burnt out of the unreliable nature of the news (even though it was coming from the producer) to the point that most movie news sites chose to just stop reporting anything unless there was something truly concrete. Well, we actually have some concrete news now. We learn through Variety that two script writers are currently writing two different scripts that are meant to become the next Transformers films in the franchise. Variety states that these two films are in active development. One of the scripts is written by Joby Harold who wrote the Guy Ritchie King Arthur film, and who also wrote the script for the DCEU Flash film Warner Bros has yet to deliver. The other script is written by  James Vanderbilt whose most recent films are the Adam Sandler Netflix movie Murder Mystery, The Meg and Independence Day Resurgence.

With the new year now in full swing, the remaining Studio Series figure due out in January have now been found in both the US and Canada. These are the two leaders, Shockwave and Scavenger. While they were available online, they are now in stores too. In Canada, these two were found at EB Games stores. The sightings come from Cybertron.ca members wesperino, Prime Sinister and CSpray. The prices were $62.99 CAD for Edge Members and $69.99 for non members.

TF Fan NothingHead, over at TFW2005, posted a finding of these same leaders. These were found in an Orlando Walmart for $49.99 USD.

Thanks to some snooping by Seibertronian CommunistPrime, we have word that another Wrecker might be on his way to Studio Series.

This new listing was found by CommunistPrime in Target's systems, and shows a clear listing for a deluxe class Leadfoot figure. Leadfoot was a Wrecker in Dark of the Moon, and died in Age of Extinction. He transforms into the #42 Target Chevrolet driven at the time by Juan Pablo Montoya. Almost all of the Leadfoot toys from the Dark of the Moon toyline were Target exclusives (due to his alt mode's sponsorship), and he also suffered from an agonizing cancellation of his Hasbro deluxe class figure that greatly limited his availability.

Leadfoot is the 2nd potential Wrecker we could be getting this year, following the next wave's Roadbuster figure. With a Leadfoot, we would have the entire Dark of the Moon Wrecker cast in armored deluxe form, counting Topspin's deluxe figure from Dark of the Moon, though it is very possible that we could get a Topspin figure this year too.

Given this listing was found in the Target database, it is also possible this new figure could also be a Target exclusive.

Check out the listing below, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!

Every person in the Transformers fandom has that special piece that brought them into the fandom. For some, it might have been an episode of a cartoon. For others, it might have been a comic. Others a toy. Others a movie.

But no matter what that source is, every Transformers fan holds that piece near and dear to their hearts. Even when they've been in the fandom for 5 years, 10, 20, 30, or even 35, they still can remember that one thing that brought them here. And despite whatever else they experience and come to love, they still will always remember and hold dear that entry point.

For me, my introduction to the fandom was the 2007 Live Action Movie. The movie, while not the best and by no means the least controversial piece of media, is still very important to me, as are all of the followup movies. I enjoy the movies for what they are, and I love both the action and the designs that they have brought into the Transformers lore.

And that leads me to the primary subject of this article: my first and second ever Transformers toy.

After watching the movie sometime in August of 2007, 12 year old me wanted a Transformers toy badly. And on Christmas Eve, I got me first: the original Voyager Class Megatron toy. And then on Christmas morning, I got the 2007 Camaro Concept Deluxe Bumblebee. My first Decepticon and Autobot, within 24 hours of each other. And ever since, I have loved and held dear both designs and toys.

Looking back at these toys, the Megatron was a simple and not very accurate toy, but I loved the ice effects and the speed of which I could Transform him. And Bee is a bit limited, but he still has some great design cues, such as how the wheels and wings work, that have not been replicated but I still love.

Ever since these 2 toys, both designs have held a high place in my mind. My definitive Bumblebee design remains his movie design, specifically the 2007 Concept Camaro design, and while there have been many different Megatron designs that I have loved, this was the first, and is important for that reason.

That is where we come upon the present time, and more specifically the last 2 and a half years. About that time, we got word that a Generations line exclusively for Movie toys was in production, and the first new Movie Masterpiece figure was hitting shelves.

The first new Movie Masterpiece was the 2007 Bumblebee, and I got that toy as fast as I could. And I have loved that toy ever since. It brought the 2007 design to life in near perfect detail while also still transforming. It has the mask, the Bee face that I have come to know and love, the little mirrors on the collar, the wheels integrated into the heels, and even the proper wing locations. The only thing missing was the shoulder missile cannons, but that is a minor thing.

And then, in 2019, we got the announcement and release of the 2007 Movie Megatron toy. This was the first use of that design in forever, and it was a Masterpiece! I snagged that toy up, and holy crap was it fantastic. This was a huge, heavy, larger than life, and perfect update to his 2007 design. And that jet mode is huge and wonderful.

Both of the Masterpiece toys lived up to expectations, and they have filled my heart with so much joy, having these perfect replicas of my first 2 toys.

But we weren't done there! Not long after that, we got the reveals of the first wave of 2020 for Studio Series, and in that wave, side by side, were the 2007 figures updated! Unbelievable!

And those 2 figures were pre-ordered and accepted into my home with open arms. And just like the Masterpiece toys, they lived up to their expectations. The new deluxe Bumblebee also perfectly nails that original look, and it feels wonderful to have a 2007 and 2020 deluxe of the same character side by side. And then there is Megatron, the same thing, but at voyager scale. And while he traded in a fusion cannon for a giant mace, I love the mace, and I love seeing these 4 toys side by side. Sure Megatron has the wrong chest, but the paint work is so intricate and perfect, it can be excused.

Having these 6 toys, 3 for each different character, is such a huge deal to me. I can look at these 6, and I can see my adventures through the 13 years I have been in the fandom. I can see where I started, with the limited engineering of the 2007 line that still produced some great toys. I can see where I have gone with the Generations updates, expanding my Generations shelves in all forms, but most specifically for my movie toys. And in the Masterpieces, I can see how I have matured, from simple figures that were gifts or took a month to save up for if I bought my own, to high end collectible figures of my favorite characters.

These 6 have given me an incredible journey, a nice representation of my Transformers adventure. My favorite designs, some of my favorite characters, and my favorite Transformers universe.

It is a joy to have these toys, both original and different updates. They bring me incredible joy, but also strike that nostalgia bone just right. These toys make me feel things; I can feel my journey, my adventures, my life in the fandom.

When other fans get their updates to their original toys, whether they be Generation 1, Beast Wars, Armada, etc. I know exactly how they feel. I can see why they have such an overpowering nostalgia for their firsts and their updates. This is my MP-1, my Classics Prime, my Galaxy Force Optimus Prime, my Power of the Primes Optimal Optimus. The feeling is wonderful, and I could not be happier with where my journey has taken me.

The movies have been my introduction, my driving force, my favorite universe. And here, they have come full circle. My hope is that others who have not felt what I now feel will one day get to experience this nostalgia trip, that they can feel that satisfaction of that perfect update to their first.

Studio Series Brains and Wheelie are Much Smaller than as Shown on Box

This is more to set expectations and share something with you all. We now have in hand images of the Brains and Wheelie figures that come with Transformers Studio Series leader Shockwave. And they are incredibly small. The best comparison would be the size of the mini jets that came on a sprue with Titans Return Broadside. This makes sense, when you think about how Studio Series is all about accurate movie scaling and they should technically only reach the calf of the small paratrooper figure since we all remember that Wheelie could only reach Megan Fox' calf (though many have tried to forget). The reason the minuscule size does still surprise many is because the promotional images from hasbro were misleading in their size. They seemed much bigger in comparison to Shockwave, along the lines of the Igor that came with leader class DOTM Megatron. Below we show the comparison to what was shown and how big they are in reality. You can also see a video review of the toy below.
