Greetings Seibertronians! Hasbro held another Fans First Friday today and it brought a few Transformers reveals to indulge in!

The first two will appeal to fans of the Live Action movies series as it answers a long wish to see Dino, from Transformers Dark of the Moon, finally arrive in Studio Series! The other new entry for Studio Series is B-127 (Cybertronian mode Bumblebee from his self titled movie)!

Check out the images below and Hasbro Pulse preorder links to me sure you don't miss out on these two!

The other reveal was the return of Ectotron! Marking a new entry in the Transformers x Ghostbusters collaborative line, Ectotron is back with a new head sculpt, and a new paint job to bring his alt mode of Ecto 1 up to date with its appearance in Ghostbusters: Afterlife! This release also comes with the first issue of the IDW Transformers x Ghostbusters comic miniseries, featuring a brand new cover, so you can read up on Ectotron's encounter with the Ghostbusters! There's also a brand new mini ghost figure to go along with Slimer!

This release is a Target Exclusive.

(Ages 8 and Up / Approx. Retail Price: $49.99 / Available: 01/01/2021)
Worlds collide in this TRANSFORMERS-Ghostbusters mash-up as the iconic Ecto-1 Cadillac from the
Ghostbusters: Afterlife movie now as a TRANSFORMERS robot – the ECTO-1 ECTOTRON! He ain’t afraid of
no ghosts. ECTOTRON stands at 7 inches tall, converts between Ecto-1 and robot mode in 22 steps, comes
with a Proton Pack, Blaster accessories, classic Slimer ghost figure, Ghostbusters Afterlife-inspired
Muncher ghost figure, and an issue number 1 of the “Transformers Ghostbusters Ghosts of Cybertron”
comic book from IDW Publishing, featuring an exclusive cover. The figure also features an updated head
sculpt, including updated Ecto-Goggles, inspired by Ghostbusters: Afterlife and afterlife Tech Specs
showing the capabilities of ECTOTRON, including strength, speed, and bust-abilty.
TRANSFORMERS robots have always been MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE, but now, through the
TRANSFORMERS Collaborative, fans can experience these larger than life characters as they team-up,
mash-up, and meet up with other characters, teams and people who share this same special quality.

Damn, first G1 Jazz showing up in the '86 line. Now we got Dino for the regular Studio Series line. Sure, the vehicle mode isn't one-to-one the same as the Ferrari 458 Italia, but at least they tried.

Those look so good!

I wonder if Bumblebee will have to option to switch heads.
Dino looks cool,but I want to see more so we can look at the articulation and transformation.
I like the new head on Ectron.

It's good to see the line coming together.

Day 318 of waiting for Transformers Armada Masterpiece news.

Between Dino and Blitzwing I do hope any future Transformers movies secure the toy rights before making film models for them. That said I'll buy Dino like I did Blitz' but I am not thrilled. (OK, that shouldn't be an issue with Beast Wars, but...)

Not sure on Bee though. I have the mold in Cliffjumper and not sure I care to have every possibly variation of Bee Hasbro puts out, even if it is a more sizable difference than the usual Camero tweaks.

At long last, we finally have a Deluxe Dino! Granted the vehicle mode is a bit ugly, but otherwise he looks decent enough. It's a shame they didn't also show the Deluxe Jolt we're supposedly getting, I have no interest in that B-127 or the Beewun Starscream that was announced a while ago, but I'll likely pick up Dino.

Dino looks great, but I wish he came with his hooks.

Press release says Ectotron is $49.99, which is a little steep, but Target is saying $59.99! You can still get the original on Pulse for $39.99! That's quite the markup for an extra ghost and a comic.

FANS: "New Transformers X Ghostbusters! Yeah! The hype is real!"
HASBRO: "Yeah so we made a few changes to Ectotron's colours, gave him a new head and also a new ghost and a comic"
FANS: "dafuq?"

Dino’s car mode is 458y enough, plus they got the details right in his chest so I’m not too pressed about it. And I honestly figured they were just going to be reissuing the first ectotron so at least it’s something different, even if only slightly

If I could trust Target I'd get it with the 25% off coupon they have right now. But why bother if two months from now they are going to just cancel me pre-order anyways ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Why did they give dino a different alt mode?

Because Ferrari wouldn't give them the license, so they had to genericfy it to avoid trouble.

Not quite. Ferrari is a bit fickle with its licensing with exclusivity, meaning only one company can have it at any given time. At first it was Mattel with its Hot Wheels line, but in 2014 they lost it to The May Cheong Group with its Maisto brand... which may work in our favor, because in Japan they go through Tomy with its Tomica line.

While they didn’t go with the Ferrari, the alt. Mode looks pretty similar (though not identical) to Dino’s alt. mode from the DOTM game. Can’t take credit for noticing this though, Hisbrawler pointed this out on TFW yesterday.

yeah, that is a bit crazy, I was all ready to purchase a couple to display both modes, but I can't see spending that much on one let alone two.

not bad timing considering Ghostbusters Afterlife is not scheduled for release after all the movie theaters go under due to lockdowns.

New head sculpt too but not worth that price IMO

Screw it, with the Target coupon and Red Card 5% it was only $46 and change with is only a couple of dollars more than the original on Pulse. I kept my order on Pulse because quite frankly it could very well get delayed and if it arrives before the Target one arrives then I'll leave it in the packaging until I get my Target order or, more than likely, Target cancels my pre-order.

I was super happy with the reveals.

Bee is a meh, because Cliffjumper was pretty bad, but I still pre-ordered him.

Dino, FINALLY!!!!!! He looks pretty good! Not perfect, but he looks pretty dang good, and the "at last" factor is huge.

Ectotron is a surprise. i was expecting Ghost Starscream, but I am OK with this. I like the new head, the paint job isn't bad, and the new ghost looks cool. Price is steep, but I did use some Target coupons to get him for $45 shipped, so that works.
