For Bayverse fans, one of yesterday's biggest highlights was The Fallen while for G1 fans, it was Rumble. Well we now have in hand photos of both of those toys giving you a better look. Evan Brooks, the Hasbro designer, posted pictures of Rumble on Instagram. There we can see the comparison to the previous cassette bot mold from Siege and how it still fits within Soundwave and Blaster.

Donnay Wong, over on Facebook, posted some really beautiful and high quality images of the Fallen. We see both his faces as well as the complexity of his extra appendages and the various poses he can take. You can see all those images below.

Also super happy to see Sludge will get repacked for the holiday season, so I don't have to worry about hunting him or him not showing up yet.

That Rumble is a MUST.

I said I would never buy The Fallen but man, how can I pass on that SEXY beast? :x

It's the worst take yet since they just split it, so you have half in the front, then a gap at the sides, and then the rest of the coat in the back. Ends up looking more like a green version of that pope outfit on the top left.

The top half of crosshairs looks better though, as does the alt mode. But the main thing about him is botched.

Looking back at the livestream, it looks like those long car panels probably can fold out from the backpack and form the sides of the trenchcoat.

First-Aid wrote: It was another of the things that made the Bayverse bots so unique in TF history...they did things no one even considered before because everyone was locked into a traditional humanoid look. Hasbro and Dreamworks gave MB a basic set of guidelines, but basically said "Here's a blank check...let's see what you can come up with". We got bots without bodies, wheels for feet, cloth trench coats, built in weapon systems, the ability to rapidly alter alt modes (which I never understood why, if they were in disguise, they stuck with the SAME disguise for years to the point where EVERYONE recognized the disguise), and more organic looks instead of the traditional Robby-the-Robot blocky builds. Say what you want about the movies (popcorn fun, that's it though), they made more changes to the way Transformers were thought of and created than at ANY other point. And THAT is why they are so hard to replicate accurately in toy form.


Hear hear!

I have zero qualms with the shortcuts taken with Crosshairs because - as you said - his design is very difficult to implement on a regular toy (I've not seen many mass-produced, non-premium action figures with good-looking, functional trenchcoats), let alone one that has to transform into a car. I understand the appeal of screen accuracy, but Crosshairs in particular (along with Galvatron, Stinger, Devastator, Grimlock, Lockdown) are *never* going to get perfect toy representations because the mass-shifting/transformations in their movie counterparts are simply impossible to do in reality (IMO).

I love that the movies really stretched the concepts for what Transformers can look like, but the trade-off is that we can't get faithful representations of some of those characters. Guys like Crosshairs looking good from at least one angle is a fair trade-off for me

The front of the trench coat can also rotate to the side, so there should be a lot of options for posing the trench coat to make it look more complete

Thoughts!
The Fallen
Yes, big yes. I am enamored with this figure, he looks so good. And BIG! The vehicle mode is perfectly fine too, Cybertronian modes have always been fun to me the trick is just make it as wild and mishmashy from the robot mode as possible and this is in that vain enough to pass. Pumped

Hot Rod
Strangely I really want to get Hot Rod too :-? Not because of the movie, or his roll(?) in it, by ANY means. Just purely on the basis of it being a neat toy

Crosshairs
He looks incredible compared to the old version, love the accuracy in both modes. The trench coat car panel thing probably won't be as bad as most people dread, but more pics and videos will solve that decision in time. Still, not one for me

Okay, I'm very impressed by the detail on The Fallen. I was gonna pass on him because I generally don't care for Bayverse, but that's a good looking figure.

And yes, Rumble is an insta-buy.

So we could tell from the stream that Transformers Studio Series leader class ROTF The Fallen was gonna be big, but how big? How does he compare to other leader class figures? Well, as we saw earlier today, it seems several people already have their hands on this figure as images from different people and sources are already making their rounds on social media. Here is one such picture with no known source yet (if you are the owner, let us know) and it gives us our best idea at how tall/big The Fallen is. It has him stand next to leader class Jetfire, from the same series.

This was probably the best stream Hasbro has done. yet. I was just expecting to see the rest of legacy wave 3 but then they showed studio series and just nailed every one of the bayverse figures. Also the hints saying that they know about the rest of TLK cast really gets me excited. Fingers crossed for the crew!

Crosshairs looks great. Love that they removed the kibble from his arms to give him a better front look.

Hotrod is perfect. I don't even know how to improve this design anymore.

The Fallen is another dream come true. I have been waiting for this since 2009. It is perfect in every way and I love that they actually made him huge like he should be! Even the altmode is awesome!

I preordered these 3 right when they went on amazon. Glad that they will be out in about 2-3 months too and not longer! Also, the designer interaction on Instagram is awesome. Love seeing the behind the scenes on the design.

Streams have really gotten better in general, with better presentation and some interesting tidbits by the designers.The chat between the design team is great. They obviously have to spout some marketing crap from time to time because ultimately, these streams are adverts and they have to sell you the toys. But you can feel the passion in these guys when they talk, and the genuine enthusiasm when they talk about an aspect of the toy they feel particularly proud of.

Yeah, this stream was great and streams have gotten better. I like when they just let the designer talk. really loved the bit about interacting with the Lamborghini company and how big an input they had. You never hear about stuff like this.

While not all fans like the Bayverse designs, it seemed pretty unanimous that the Hot Rod toy presented on tuesday's stream was a very impressive toy and one of the highlights of the reveals. It was also cool to know about Lamborghini having quite an input on the toy's looks. Sam Smith (not the singer) posted images of both that toy and the other 2022 wave 4 deluxe, Crosshairs, on his instagram. For Crosshairs, he demonstrates how dynamic the figure can be with how they handled the trench coat, and how it not connecting at the sides increases poseability. Enjoy!

Exactly, things like that, or the amount of people involved in making Megatron, or them just flat out saying that they couldn't factor Inferno's gun into the budget.

It's like the complete opposite of how things were handled by the Hasbro team of 2010-2013, who were just so secretive and overprotective of everything. At every one of those years' BotCons, that Hasbro team held panels for new revelations related to the Aligned continuity (TF: Prime, the WFC/FOC video games, or just the Aligned lore in general) and each time they were like "What we're about to show you requires that you turn off all your cameras and recording devices, and if we find out that you've taken any pictures or videos of this, you're history, and so is our showing you all anything like this ever again!"

Well I wouldn't call myself a convert, but I'm not against getting a great looking piece like that either. I don't have many SS figures, leaders mostly, but this will be a centerpiece for sure.

I was gonna wait for the MPM version, but that might be years away and this looks great anyway.

I also did enjoy hearing about how Inferno and Starscream do share that voyager budget and how a change in deco for inferno's ant eyes meant removing paint from Starscream's sword. It does confirm what people have been saying a long time that to understand how a figure comes out, you have to get a sense of the entire wave/class output.
As for the decision, it makes both figures more toy accurate. But at the same time, I woudn't have minded the original plan either. Still, cool to know they think a lot of stuff like that.

irnerno lacking the gun is sad, but not the end of the world. His original toy didn't come with it anyway (it came with weird pincers), but an upgrade kit surely will. On the upside, HE HAS MOUTH ARTICULATION! I don't remember seeing mouth articulation before, except maybe legacy metroplex.

PvP review for The Fallen is out, the size comparisons are very cool to see! Fallen is very big, seemingly about the same height as Grimlock (if not slightly shorter)

Forgot to include the link in the news submission, sorry about that!

Just scored core class Ratchet and Wheelie for $8.49 each.

Be alert - Ratchet's gun was loose in the box. If I hadn't been pulling it fresh out of the case myself it'd probably be lost to the winds of the toy aisle.

We thank EvasionModeBumblebee for sending more news regarding The Fallen our way. It seems quite a few fans got their hands on him already since we have content from China, Korea and now the UK. Below are photos from a blog post on a Korean website along with images from PrimevsPrime review. Those show The Fallen next to ROTF Megatron, the Jetfire/Prime combo and more. We also have in hand images of the alt mode, for those who find it important. Let us know what you think!

In its defense, RotF The Fallen was pretty tall for a voyager back in the day as well. He towered over other voyagers like Starscream. So it might be throwing off things here.

Image

But yeah, if you watch the video, the alt modes when he transforms them are almost exactly the same size. I might still pick this up, just for the more accurate...well, everything, but "big" is kind of relative compared to the massive toys of the earlier movie lines. I have deluxes from RotF that are bigger than today's voyagers.

The thickness of the ships are way different in the front. I guess SS Fallen will be kinda like the 2001 RiD Megatron and can transform into 12 "modes".

Kind of interesting how the Fallen transforms into a almost flying saucer shape.

I actually think they just have it mistransformed. The struts that connect to the arms in bot mode end up in completely different places on the render, like something is supposed to be pulled apart in the back of the vehicle and then connected to the legs/engines that they didn't do.

Isn't he bigger than Jetfire from 2014, the first leader in the Gen line we ever had?

The struts that connect to the arms in bot mode end up in completely different places on the render, like something is supposed to be pulled apart in the back of the vehicle and then connected to the legs/engines that they didn't do.


The main thing I see is that the legs are bent more at the knee in the fan mode, bringing his heels together.

I honestly don't think it matters too much, mistransforming the alt mode that is. Not like he had one in the movie.

I pre-ordered all 3 SS Bayverse Leader & Deluxes revealed in the Fan Stream. I wasn't too keen on get another The Fallen before the reveal, but have since been a convert. The beefy bot mode is enough to warrant the purchase, but what REALLY piqued my interest is the alt mode... not the boxart/"official" version (which SUCKS) but the potential for other DIY alternate alt-modes. With the pincer-like "cockpit" nose and the many hands, legs & toe joints I imagine this figure is ripe to DIY a few bug-like modes. Play value FTW!
