Neat, but I think I'll pass. I don't feel like painting all of his accessories and his trailer to make him look right.

Did he have that orange on his front of the truck in the movie?

Yeah, but the fade in is better than on the toys

Do I really need to sharpie the hell out of this trailer? I'll get it on clearance as I did with Magnus and Shockwave from the Siege lines

One of the decos for SS leader Prime has a fade that matches the movie much better, we just have to hope that it’s the one on the final figure.

All these different paint app images are giving me a headache. Make up your dang mind already!

IIRC, the biggest visible differences are that Grindor should have 7 rotor blades instead of 6, a third engine above and behind the left one, and the tail fin and rotor angled to the right. I think it's to the right.

FWIW I added a third engine to ROTF Voy Grindor, but another rotor blade would be tricky.

So many Optimuses. I haven’t been able to find SS38 BB movie version yet, but I want it. I haven’t seen SS32 around yet either, but I’m not entirely sold on it yet. I mean I want him, but mostly just to combine with Jetfire. And now there’s his flight tech version. And I never got around to pulling the trigger on Legendary OP. I’m gonna have to start a second movie OP shelf at this rate :BANG_HEAD:

In terms of the variations in stock images, I’m hoping for bright red, painted abs, unpainted guns, but I’m expecting unpainted abs and unpainted guns. I already know there’s no way we’re getting painted weapon accessories.

I’d love it if they did Grindor. Just so long as they make the necessary retooling. SS Blackout is still my favorite SS figure, despite his panels.

Honestly, this guy hasn't won me over. Honestly the wings don't look great, to me at least. Plus, the improved paint deco isn't extensive enough to warrant a purchase. A shame, more accessories are always fun, and the trailer does looks good with the truck.

That trailer is the main reason I may skip #32 Optimus Prime, it's the same mold with a different belly, but the original RotF belly piece comes with Jetfire. I already have the two original Leaders, but the combination is so... clunky.

Oh don't get me wrong, I think if you don't have ss38, or a movie Optimus in general, this is probably your best bet. It's a nice lookong toy, it just doesn't have enough to tempt me into double dipping, if you know what I mean. Plus the Jetfire combination being actually, you know, good this time is a nice bonus :-P

I know a bunch of people were gonna skip 32 and go straight for the Leader for this reason too.

But I went both both cause A) didn't get the first Prime and B) I want to have one separate standing by himself with no upgrades and 1 with his flight tech, and the leader can serve as both! I think my favorite part of the leader is that he comes with the axe

After seeing the potential paint applications placements for the leader I may get both and sell the leader's voyager component. Especially if the windows do end up being painted over

... the originally clear plastic parts of #32 are opaque on #44?!

Depending on the paint apps. If I remember correctly, one of the prototypes had clear windows. The amount of paint variants here is so confusing 8-}

FUCK! I really wanted those clear plastic windows. And I am only getting 44.

We'll have to wait and see then. I'm fine with that, I'm waiting for the second set of Constructicons as it is.

Thanks to In Demand Toys on Facebook, we have a bunch of new images of the upcoming Transformers Studio Series Drift, Dropkick, Hightower, and Long Haul!

Drift is an extensive retool of the original Dropkick figure, being almost entirely new save for some parts of the legs, and he is based on his helicoptor form from Age of Extinction.

Dropkick is a new mold that is modeled after his muscle car form from the Bumblebee movie, prior to his taking on the triple changing form that he held for the remainder of the movie.

Hightower is based on some Constructicon concept art and the smaller Hightower legion figure that came out with the tiny Legion class Devastator during Revenge of the Fallen. Hightower is a new mold, and he forms the upper left arm of Studio Series Devastator.

Long Haul is also a new mold Constructicon, and he forms the right foot of Studio Series Devastator. He and Hightower will make 4 of 8 members of Devastator released at retail.

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

Not exactly: he forms the left upper arm, with Scrapmetal forming the actual hand.

Comparing Long Haul's foot mode with Rampage's, there's no doubt that Devastator is gonna look "messy" head to toe, in an artistic sense. :lol:

I read on tfwiki in the footnotes somewhere that this version of Devastator is bigger or smaller depending on how many Constructicons are merged. I think that’s a clever explain away for the jumbled mess that he became. Like with Rampage they’re each like a Deceptimonster in their own unique ways.

That chopper mode works way better on Drift I think it’s not great for either one but better on Drfift.
