Griffin from Ozformers found several new cases of the Series 2 Tiny Turbo Changers and was looking for all the new ones. He found 8 of each, except for Sqweeks which he found none of. This may mean that some boxes do not come with Sqweeks or, worse, that he has been dropped from the series. Any confirmation of this would be a great help so please let us know if you find a Tiny Turbo Changer Sqweeks in the wild. He did find all the other new toys and took an image of them in their alt modes. This means this is our very first shot of Shockwave in his alt mode. It isn't a cohesive look but the front does look like an exaggerated version of the front from his DOTM toy. You can click the image to be lead to Griffin's post where he talks about tracking all these down.

No Sqweeks? But he's the one that makes the most sense at that scale...

Also, damn Hasbro, if you can add stripes to "Thundercracker" and paint Shockwave's sword, you can put some white on Barricade's doors so he actually looks like a police car.

(And geez, how many Movieverse cars are grey? We're not even getting Jazz or Sideways..)

I've got a theory that the case assortments are completely random. Squee(a)ks must have been edged out by chance.

Well, in that he's a child when most are based on adult characters yes I suppose. :P

Am still looking up references and ideas to turn Link into Izzy so Sqweeks has his best buddy. :D

Found this on facebook page TFmizer hong kong discuss.

while drift and bee is not exactly a new info, but we finally get to see an in hand image of crosshairs here. He actually looks pretty neat, altough i still can't see the remolded parts. He just looks like a better repainted version of AOE mold to me.

I don't know what robot mode bits are redone but he certainly has a new spoiler in car mode.

Hood headlights spoiler guns. All that I know is remolded.

Thanks to Seibertronian Bacem and the TFMizer Honk Kong Discussion Facebook, we have a new image featuring The Last Knight Crosshairs, Drift, and Bumblebee! The new image doesn't show us too much that we haven't seen from Drift yet, but it does provide a nice look at the new deluxe Bee and it also gives us a good look at Crosshairs robot mode, which appears to be the same as his Age of Extinction self, with new guns, maybe some changed inner-trenchcoat pieces, and a better paint job. Check out the image below!

That's definitely a wait to see a comparison and/or video review to see if it's worth it.

It's just cybertron Primus with a snazzy coat of paint and a remolded planet key. I'd recommend some of few post 2010 reviews of him.

For those who own Steelbane, is the floppiness something that can be fixed by putting a drop of superglue in the joints, or will I just be stuck with a floppy figure?

I would have thought any floppy action figures can be fixed with a bit of glue or nail polish in the joints. I've done it on various figures such as a Lion-O figure who had such loose ankle joints he couldn't stand up at all, but he got fixed and I've fixed the leg ball joints on a few figures both TF and non. And strengthed some shoulder/elbow joints for characters whose arms were getting weighed down by their own weapons. I can't say for sure on Steelbane til I get him and have a go but I don't see why he can't be fixed.

I wasn't sure if the floppiness was limited to just the ball joints or not.

With the film not doing well in North America does anybody else think some of the later wave figures will be hard to find?

What are you talking about? https://www.seibertron.com/transformers/news/transformers-the-last-knight-global-total-opening-at-2653-million-1-in-us-strong-international-reception/38689/ (it's also only going to be a 3 wave series so it won't be too bad. Evidence: we have preorders for scorn and nitro already)

The film had it's lowest opening weekend in franchise history and most insiders don't see it improving. Yes we have preorders, but that doesn't mean brick and mortar will stock the figures.

I dont think thats related. The toys were finished long before the film came out, they have already been ordered by stores, they will get sold. And plus stores want them in time for the DVD release too.

The chains in general yes, but the individual stores of said chain are a somewhat different story.
