Chefatron recently put up a review of Studio Series 21 Voyager Class Starscream (the 2nd, Revenge of the Fallen, version), on his YouTube channel. Chefatron clearly liked the figure, praising its paint apps especially the matt-textured tatoos. The main difference between this figure and the original, besides paint scheme, is the buzzsaw attachment, which he used in Revenge of the Fallen and Dark of the Moon. The original figure seemed to have meant to come with it, but was removed before released.

So, what are your thoughts on the figure now? Click the video below and be sure to tell your thoughts in the Pub forums!

Picked up this pickle jar face yesterday!

Cool mold, lovely deco and really good gun arm integration.

I'm probably late to the party but don't forget to push out the chest for bot mode and then back in for alt-mode. Thanks for the heads up Hasbro ;)^ 8-}

I noticed a pin while transforming him a couldn't figure out why it was there so I thought maybe it was just to hold him together. Then I noticed how weird his chest looked when I TF'd him back into a bot. So I started poking at the inside of the chest and it popped right out. Not the easiest thing to do either way and spent feel good, but drags the ground if left out though and all the art shows the chest out.

Alt-mode was larger than expected and seems bigger than the old mold. Won't be able to compare until I get home on Friday. Excepted to see SR next to LD and HR.

PrimeVsPrime compared SS Lockdown with AoE Lockdown and yes the SS is a fair bit bigger.

Oh wow, that is a big difference. I like it a lot better than the OG and better as Shadow Raider. That satin orange paint is tops and contrasts nicely in bot mode ;)^

...I've had this figure for a month now and didn't know that was a thing until just now, whoops. #-o
Thanks for the heads-up, that looks better.

Not only that but don't forget to push the upper arms back. Unless you already know about that and you prefer this way

Talking about that little black flap? I prefer it the way it is, but according to the pics, art and instructions - it's forward and out for bot mode and back and in for alt-mode. Unless I'm mistaken?

Thanks to Seibertronian youtuber PrimevsPrime, we have an English review for the upcoming Studio Series Dropkick figure!

Dropkick is set to star as one of the two main Decepticons in the Bumblebee film due out his December, transforming into both a helicopter and muscle car. This Studio Series figure decides to stick to just his helicopter mode instead of trying to do the triple changing deluxe class gimmick. The figure is done in a mostly light blue, which doesn't fully match up with the colors we have seen in the trailers, but is still nice nonetheless.

Dropkick will be available and hitting store shelves here sometime over the next few weeks, just in time for the holiday season. He will retail for $19.99, the regular deluxe class price point.

Check out the review below, and let us know what you think of this new upcoming Bumblebee movie character below!

Thanks to Dengeki Hobby, we have new stock images for Takara's take on the upcoming Transformers Studio Series World War II Bumblebee, Dark of the Moon Sideswipe, Movie 1 Barricade, and Crankcase.

Bumblebee, Barricade, and Sideswipe are all brand new molds. Bee is based on his flashback scene from WWII in The Last Knight, a design that sort of comes out of left field, but is still pretty cool to get. Maybe this will mean a WWII Hot Rod is on its way too! Sideswipe is based on his convertible Stingray mode from Dark of the Moon, complete with dual swords and dual blasters, just like those he wielded during the Mexican standoff scene. Barricade is a new mold using some Transformation tricks from his recent Masterpiece toy. Crankcase meanwhile is a simple repaint of the wave 1 Crowbar figure, confusingly enough.

All of these figures will be available some time early next year, so stay tuned for images as they come!

I have the DOTM Sideswipe already, so the only what I will buy him is if he could actually stand and hold a pose at the same time

Man, that Sideswipe looks amazing! I don't actively buy SS, but I think I need that one in my hands.

I think the only characters that I am desperately waiting for a release now are a 2007 Megatron and Shockwave. I need to complete my 2007 bots!

The DOTM shockwave toy w2as recently rereleased in an amazing deco under the Movie the Best line and ehich ever version you get, it scales really well with the SS line.

I feel the exact same way, but about WWII Bee. That will be bought on sight for the altmode alone.

DOTM Sideswipe suck though. Mostly because he's an unpainted prototype. The ROTF version is way better. Especially the HFTD Sidearm Sideswipe. Too bad the secondary market prices are ridiculous.

The SS version look like he'll have solid footing. As for the paint, we will have to wait for in-hand images to judge.

I love the headscult on that WWII Bee, I’m hoping that future SS Bumblebees use a tweaked version of this headsculpt instead of the TLK/SS 76 Camaro version. That head sculpt is ok, but this one gets the proportions way better.

Sideswipe’s looking great, needs some robot mode paint but I can fix that.

Barricade’s looking pretty good too, I wasn’t planning on getting him at first but he’s looking better and better.

Not interested much in Crankcase Fancy Crowbar.

So are SS Optimus v2 and Bonecrusher in this wave too?
