The new Transformers Studio Series line was revealed at both Toyfair and Wonderfest this year just hours apart from one another and we have extensive galleries showing you what was on display along with Hasbro's 3d renders. If you want more, and why wouldn't you, Notrab on Weibo has unloaded what appears to be official product shots for these upcoming toys. These resemble the high quality photos that accompany retail listings like Walmart or Toysrus, showcasing these toys in the best light possible, along with their features and poseability.

We get a great shot of how each product scales with one another, which really showcases John Warden's comments on how scale was a big component of this line. It is fascinating to see the tools Hasbro used for this accomplishment, like the use of using toys we had already gotten and upscaling them in a way that works best (such as Starscream and Ratchet) along with other changes to existing tooling. There are new molds as well, of course, like Optimus, which is not as well received as the rest of the line. It is probably because Hasbro showed us years ago how a voyager scaled toy of the Revenge of the Fallen model was possible at a voyager scale without resorting to fake discolored chest windows and an inaccurate backpack. These images do show him in his best light so far, so you will let us know what you think.

You will also find many images of Leader Blackout, a very long awaited figure. Is he as great as you would have hoped? Is he your most anticipated leader class figure of this line?

Let us know!

Only thing I would change is Optimus's chest, and have Bee slightly taller than Jazz. Still excited for the line!

This is a Generations line, not Masterpiece ;) Only 3 Sizes to choose from, so some are really rough fits depending on character size in the Movie.

Brawl is slated as a Voyager, so he'll be roughly the size of Starscream and Optimus Prime.

Yeah, I know, but it seems like they prioritized bot modes. I, personally, would have preferred it the other way around. I think it’s easier to headcanon differences in robot size than the size of actual vehicles.

that starscream looks like an upscaled dotm deluxe mold. it's as if they are saying, "those KO companies does it, why can't we?"

not that i'm complaining tho. among all starscream molds, save for the leader hftd mold, that dotm deluxe mold is easily the best. and by scale it up to voyager, they also adds some improvements like in the chest and wrist, which i'm all in. oh, and no annoying cybertronian tattoo. so all in all, he's georgeous.

Seeing some clearer pics of that prime makes me like him alot more. I think we've been spoiled for choice with Movie Primes, and this is a decent voyager prime, but there are arguably better ones already out there (AOE Evasion mode, HFTD Battle blades and their various remolds/repaints.)

I'm impressed with this line.

Was never really big on the movie toys but these seem perfect.

Ok. So I just successfully ordered Stinger, at 8:27 AM Central, and my total was $21.24. I put in code "ITROCKS18" that said I would get $4.67 off the price. However...when all was said and done I ended up with MSRP, free shipping, and $1.24 tax. The new site is weird. I don't know if I just lucked out or got screwed. I'm happy I got a Stinger though...the coolest of the 4 available. :-?


~reluctantprime~ :BOT:



Update: Ok so it looks like "ITROCKS18" gave me a $5.99 promo discount that wiped out shipping. I'm ok with that!! I hope it works for those looking to grab just one figure.

Hey, I put that code in (just ordering the deluxe Bee), and its not showing any money taken off in the promo section. Was that the case for you?

The promo code showed up quickly prior to order page. When I got past the enter shipping info page...my total was then $21.24 and no promo discount showed up. did you get the message that "ITROCKS18" code was accepted?

Well, robot, but I do display a few in vehicle mode. Still, I’d like it to be believable. I don’t expect it from any current lines, and the scale here looks nice, but vehicle mode scale has always been intriguing to me.

OK, so finally catching up on the reveals, I gotta say the biggest and best reveal of the weekend was Grimlock. Hot. Damn.

I think all 6 deluxes are on my buy list. Ratchet has convinced me to get him, Stinger looks pretty good,
Bee, Jazz, and Lockdown are incredible, and Crowbar looks pretty good too! I actually liked the Berserker mold, so this will do good for him to me.

Starscream looks awesome, I will get him in this deco. Prime is a pass. But Brawl and Megatron are definites too.

Blackout looks pretty cool but not as impressed as I was originally, but still really good. And Grimlock is marvelous. He is perfect!!!

This line is killing it, best reveals of the weekend!

I think it's due to something that is accurate, rather than something that is not, regardless of our personal preferences for any one aesthetic.

No, they made our expectations HIGHER. Especially because the figures were between 1/3 and 1/2 MORE expensive. I was expecting RotF level of engeneering and premium paint. Very few figures had both.

However, for this Studio Series line it look like the higher price point will be justified. For real this time.

Sure the repaints sucked, but I'm pretty sure the majority of new figures were pretty great, scorn, skweeks, nitro, cogman, megs voyager, megs leader... several (voyager o/p, megs, cogman, etc) were works of tf art in my opinion

The reveals of them left me like I'm on Cloud 9 so much that I forgot to ask some of you head swap maestros: Does there seem to be a way for the new Optimus to swap heads with the Evasion mold? I know the sculpts are slightly different, but I was wondering that since I kind of doubt there'll be an unmasked variant (which was possible for an extremely rave variant of TLK Prime)

Once it's in your hand you have no formal obligation to adhere to its official characterization. You could repurpose it as a brand new dino character, named "Lockjaw" or something.

In fact, you could even repurpose it as BW Lockjaw. ;)

So which Megatron do you think we're actually getting in the line?

Flat gray...

Image

...or shiny silver?

Image

And it doesn't appear to be a lighting issue as they look different side by side.

Image

They both look finished. I would have said the flat gray was the one we'd be getting, but with metallic paint coating both Jazz and Grimlock it's hard to know for sure.

As for Movie the Best, that line still has its place unless Hasbro pulls out a future wave with improved versions of the likes of Shockwave, Bonecrusher, Hound, Jetfire, or any Optimus Prime since the Studio Series one is kinda crappy looking compared to the three Movie the Best Primes.

Even the figures that I didn't like at first are looking better, I'm really looking forwards to reveals for the future waves, particularly that Nitro Thundercracker.

Anyways, tried to order the deluxe Bee but it was going to be $28-30, so I'll just wait till April. I have the movie the best Bee hopefully arriving soon to tie me over till then!

No, they made our expectations HIGHER. Especially because the figures were between 1/3 and 1/2 MORE expensive. I was expecting RotF level of engeneering and premium paint. Very few figures had both.

That isnt what I meant, nor what Hellscream meant. We were talking about our expectations now that we have seen the TLK line. Toys like Barricade, any Bee, Leader Dragonstorm and so forth. There were some gems, I admit, but when you look at the amount of repaints and crappy QC, I would say this was the worst movie line so far (DOTM being second worse, no toy in this line was as good as that leader Sentinel Prime).

Goddammit, I might have to buy it out of respect...... :BANG_HEAD:

Wait until the news I am about to post. There is some wonky stuff going on in that toy.

Like, they aren't even out yet, and now we have this line's full reveal, almost all of these figures beat out the 'movie the best version', like jazz and lockdown and megs and starscream, and almost everyone else beyond o/p :???:

I thought so when I bought that MB 11 and then saw that an MPM Prime was coming out. Turns out, MB 11 is a much better figure than MPM Prime. The quality on that toy is simply astounding and it was even cheaper too. Looking at auctions like these, it is impossible for me to feel bad about that purchase

The MB line is a way to experience molds you wanted in the best way possible, so I dont see any downsides unless people only want 1 toy for each character.

Oh, forgot to mention earlier, the second Starscream from wave 4 based on his Revenge of the Fallen look will probably be the one that comes with the saw blade weapon.

Ohh, wow, that's gone up.

Payed around 70 or so for mine back when I pre-ordered. And yes its an astounding figure still. Even if it is technically a 9 year old mold.

As said before, a fun consolation prize of the brand unification is that now Takara's promotional material and official images are all related to toys even western fans will be able to buy locally.

Takara's official product site has started filling in their Transformers Studio Series listings with images. So far we have images of the robot modes and alt modes for Leaders Grimlock and Blackout along with Voyager Starscream. We also get our best look yet at Scorponok. As with all takara images, these are not renders but images of the actual toys. However, it seems the colours are not final (or the lighting is off) since their Grimlock appears to lack the green and be more grey instead. Wouldn't be the first time with Takara though.

Also, there seems to be some mistransformation going on with Grimlock looking more gappy than ever before. We also get the best sense of Grimlock's transformation. Thee pictures show us that one of his shoulders is made up of a fake t-res head that is stored upside down near his lower back, with the t-rex teeth doubling as dorsal spikes.

That is some serious mistransformation there or possibly a very loose connection? Mt bet is the former but I wouldn't like a figure that looks that stunning to be bad quality.

Same here. That's a lot quicker than normal. Usually HTS takes 4 or 5 days to get to me.

I don't know what you mean here. I loved Barricade and Wave 3 Bee. Never got Dragonstorm cos they were too expensive and I've missed out on the super cheap price reduction at B&M (sold all out) but yeah Barry is cool and W3 Bee is my fave Deluxe Bee toy ever.

What colour is Grimlock actually then? He seems to differ in pics. And yeah one of the t-rex shots definitely has them forgotten to turn the chest piece upwards but never mind. I really wanna see his back and see how that fake t-rex head goes in and if it blends it nicely (it looks fine from the sides) or if his t-rex back is ruined like his PotP counterpart.
