In the US, Transformers Studio Series The Last Knight Drift with Mini Dinobots (the stars of the Super Bowl two years ago) is an Entertainment Earth exclusive. The listing said there would be an exclusive Hasbro gift with purchase and no one had a clue what that meant... until now.

TF fan influence82 recieved the free gift in the mail and posted it into the TFW2005 boards. It turns out the free gift is a set of two high quality metal pins that you can't get anywhere else. One is of the Studio Series logo and the other is of Drift from The Last Knight. You can find the images below.

OK, so World War Bee then.

He is pretty awesome! He's not the best mold, and he's not quite great, but he is far from bad and definitely somewhere north of Good.

In my opinion, the only real missed opportunity here was to have the backpack become large bulky wings. It wouldn't be screen accurate, but it would vastly improve the 1 main drawback people might have with this figure. I also wish his arms were a bit bigger/beefed up, but that's a minor quibble.

The aesthetic is really cool, I like the weapons, he poses good, and he's got some good detail on the chest and even the back. I love the way the ankle wheels work here, it's great!! And the back wheels would look really good too with the aforementioned wings. He's really unique, and it makes him really interesting. He's also different from the Bees we know, but still readily identifiable with regards to robot parts.

I posed him the same way twice with the wheels transformed right and with the wheels hanging out like wings. I prefer them tucked in though.

Overall, he lived up to my expectations! That is one of the 3 highly anticipated figures of the wave down, and he is great! Now here's hoping Bonecrusher and Megs live up their hype like Bee did!

I am praying against all hope we get a WWII Hot Rod. He needs his Nazi fighting partner. That was one of the good parts of TLK, and I want those 2 fighting in the past together.

Man, I can't wait to get my hands on WWII Bee! That head sculpt looks perfect - I hope any future SS Bees use that sculpt (slightly tweaked for the helmet differences).

I do agree that this head is far superior to the other Bee sculpts from the line. Far better than VW and classic camaro Bee!

I love the Axe and Gun. That will definitely help Bee's Value you pretty much need 2 so you have one for TLK BB.

WW2 Bee will make for a great Centurion in my collection, also love the hammer and how it becomes the vehicle mode gun.

Hot on the tails of the new WFC SIEGE product reveals that will be showed off at Toy Fair 2019, we have two Studio Series figures that'll be showed off, Studio Series Voyager Class Optimus Prime (from the Bumblebee film), which we've seen before through unofficial means, and Studio Series Deluxe Class Dropkick, the car mode version, which we've never seen before.

Thanks to IGN, we have some great stock renders of the two figures. The article also says Optimus will hit retail on April 1st, while Dropkick will go up on August 1st. Interestingly, despite being listed at a Studio Series Deluxe price point and size, IGN calls it a Voyager Class figure.

Check out the images below, as well as IGN's descriptions, and tell us your thoughts in the Pub forums below!

The Transformers: Studio Series line is getting two new additions by way of Dropkick and Optimus Prime, both based on the character models from last year's Bumblebee movie.

Optimus Prime, Autobot leader and easily the most iconic of all the Transformers across all media, is due to arrive April 1 with a retail price of $29.99 USD. Dropkick, definitely a less well-known member of the Decepticons, but still a notable figure, is scheduled to hit retailers August 1 for $19.99.

The Studio Series Optimus Prime features "vivid, movie-inspired deco and detailed hand blasters," and transforms from truck to robot in 35 steps. Optimus stands 6.5 inches and comes with a backdrop of the "San Francisco Bridge scene" in Bumblebee.

Dropkick stands 4.5 inches tall when in robot mode and transforms into car mode in 36 steps. Unlike the movie version, the Studio Series 46 Voyager Class Dropkick is not a triple-changer. You can still buy the Studio Series 22 Deluxe Class Dropkick to turn from robot to helicopter, completing the possible transformation set.

Hasbro said the figures will be "available on HasbroPulse.com and other major retailers" at launch, which means these particular figures won't be retail-exclusives like the entire line of Vintage G1 Transformers, which could only be purchased through Walmart. Don't forget to check out our Bumblebee review, too.

Love the new Dropkick, which means a studio series jet Shatter won't be too far behind, though helicopter Dropkick does suffer next to this one as they don't look alike at all

Wait... Voyager class Dropkick?? Did someone at Hasbro give IGN incorrect class size?

Oh, actually noticed the Voyager part. Nah, he's a deluxe, because his price point is 19.99 and he stands at 4.5 inches tall

It's written in the write up, at the part saying it completes a transformation set with the helicopter Dropkick.

Apparently someone forgot to change that from the template: the $19.99 is still Deluxe Class.

These reveals are awesome Hasbro, but there's something missing...

Is it just me or does Dropkick look like a Bumblebee retool?

Okay, well... these stock photos aren't great, that Optimus has looked better than it does here I think every other time we've seen it. I'm still sticking with my decision to get the Siege Leader Prime over this guy, but it does look like an amazing figure and I am glad it exists.

As for Dropkick...look, I know a lot of people said that copter Dropkick was too skinny, but this Dropkick looks too bulky and unwieldy to me. Giving him a whole front half of a car for his chest G1-style is NOT a good look for him, in my opinion, and it looks like he's similarly going to have a really basic transformation to go with it. I actually like my copter Dropkick, so unless this looks significantly better in hand or I'm wrong about how he transforms, the only reason whatsoever I would have to get him is his gun (which does look really good/screen-accurate). Easy pass, I hope they show more SS stuff at Toy Fair than just these two. For example, you could answer this:

as I too would like to know.

Also I wanted Dropkick to have green paint decals on his face to make it look like when he talks, missed opportunity

So we have 2 deluxe dropkicks in a series all about screen accuracy and none of them look like what he looks in the film?

The second one looks closer to his pre-triplechanger form when they first arrive on Earth

And at long last, Dropkick is done justice. That is the proper coloring and the best of his 2 alt modes. Well done!

Prime looks a bit funky, but still somewhat good.
