Fellow Seibertronians! Yours truly has discovered some great news regarding the new Transformers Studio Series SS-44 Dark Of The Moon Optimus Prime and SS-46 Car Mode Dropkick. Thanks to Planet Iacon's Facebook page, we now have in hand images of the two highly anticipated upcoming figures, which show off the detail and accessories of both bots. These pictures confirm, much to many's delight, that Prime's abs are in fact painted silver, but the trailer is unfortunately left mostly unpainted.

That DOTM Optimus look bland and underwhelming.

I'll wait for the superior Takara version. [-(

Seriously, if a "premium" version ever come out, I may consider it. But as it is right here, it's a solid pass. (I have way too many Optimusses anyway)

It already has a premium version: #32 ;) Clear windows and all, just need those DotM pecs.

Funny, I thought of DOTM Prime to be the "premium" version of the mold, with the orange fade and what not.
I could do without the painted windows though. They're annoying to me and only are really there to "differentiate" the robot mode.

Maybe I'm just sour about this mold after finally nabbing this guy, and for a great discount too!

That doesn't do anything for the almost-unpainted plain gray trailer, which is what Kanrabat takes issue with.

Actually, they might be a sign that the pecs are cast in opaque plastic.

I dunno, they look painted to me. I think they were cast in red plastic and then painted silver. Same goes for the windows.

...That's what I what I was getting at. I was saying that the silver paint on the pecs might be more to compensate for them being cast in opaque red plastic, than any attempt to "differentiate" the robot mode.

I get that, the abs needed that paint, both to break up the red and to be more accurate. It's the windows being painted silver that bothers me. They are distracting, not movie accurate, and in my opinion, only there to make it look different (apparently abs and trailer aren't considered "different")

Pecs =/= Abs. Pecs = the upper chest muscles. I'm talking about the (robot mode) windows.

Looks like I don't understand basic human anatomy terms :lol:

I see where you come from, thanks for helping me understand ;)

Really? Nothing new SS wise?

The latest figures are getting ready to hit any day, and we have nothing for the wave past it.

I'm really disappointed in SDCC for the SS stuff.

I am however fairly stoked at the idea of the Arcee sisters. We knew Mixmaster was coming 4 months ago or so.

Optimus and Dropkick look good! I like the Optimus mold and look forward to it with the jetpack and trailer. Also hoping Dropkick is much more solid than Shatter

Exactly as it was said above, my main beef with the DOTM Leader is the trailer. I don't have much space for Optimus trailers. So if I have to make room for it, it better be damn beautiful. This look like a cheap dollar store storage box. And the voyager optimus, I kinda already have.

Please tell me they are not the ROTF abominations but rather, the "classics" Bee Movie ones.

The RotF ones. Those 3 are among a very tiny part of the movie Autobot cast that I do not have in toy form. I think once they come, Wheelie and Brains will be it for missing movie Autobots in my collection. (well, Dino needs more than his legion figure, soooooooo)

And don't even say anything about the designs and how "ugly" they are. The classics one from the Bee movie wasn't particularly good to me, I like Bayformers, and I have grown very tired over the past week and a half with "ugly Bayformers still up in this mess" comments

Well, if they are in scale, (meaning Legend sized) come as a 3 pack, and actually combined as it was initially promised way back then, all would be forgiven. Price point could be voyager-like.

Prime looks great! Hopefully I’ll have him in-hand in the next few weeks.

I’m glad the abs are painted, but I’m even more glad that they used the brighter red like SS-32. The trailer being gray doesn't really bug me, I’ll enjoy painting it myself.

Apparently people are bothered by the fact that DOTM Prime's colors won't match the ab piece that Jetfire comes with. I kinda recall that piece being a bit darker, now that you mention it.
