Thanks to JTPrime17, we now have multiple new listings for the 2023 Studio Series line. They include beasts in various sizes and more Bumblebee. Along with a coded character we don't know of yet, Appolo. We also have a non ROTB Bumblebee, which is labelled as WFC within Studio series. It will take time to see how this all plays out but now we have more of an idea of what is coming out next year.

For reference:

Wish the Core class was that shade of pink and not magenta, but it's a good looking figure regardless. Not crazy about the weapon, wish it covered his hand. Also looks like it splits in half for some reason?

It's interesting that they're using the "Apollo" code name again, they last used it for Age of Extinction for Dinobot Slash. I wonder who it could possibly be this time around? As far as we know BW Dinobot isn't in this movie, certainly not Slash.

Many code names are being reused this time around, from previous code series, like George.

So since Goldbug happened, could this WFC Bee be a reissue of the VW mold? Or will it be yet another mold besides a Camaro or a jeep?

You know, a reissue of the VW mold would make a whole lot of sense since that figure was previously sold in the Netflix line, whose actual proper name was "Transformers: War For Cybertron Trilogy". It would explain how and why there is a "WFC" in the listing if it's supposed to be a Studio Series release, in that it would be a toy originally first released in the "War For Cybertron Trilogy" toyline and of a character from one of the theatrically-released feature films.

...well I said I would have to get Laserbeak if it did turn out to be Murderbee, so that's happening.

I'm guessing Apollo is gonna be that tow truck Battletrap, since I believe he was the only RotB cast member that hasn't appeared with a codename in the RotB stuff we've seen before now?

...WFC Bee could easily be related to the recent WFC and be boring, yeah...but JTPrime speculated when the listing was discovered that maybe the Studio Series WFC Bee is as such because it's based off the High Moon Studios WFC game, and that's probably not likely...but I can't get the thought out of my head now.

I hope if it's Battletrap he has a nice bot mode because I could really go for a new Longarm figure.

You know, it probably wouldn't take much to retool Bee movie Cybertronian Bee into WFC game Bee.

Well, I didn't expect Laserbeek, but this is certainly a cool deep cut. And coupled with the box art depicting the little girl's bedroom, this is probably one of the darker things Hasbro has released in a while. :shock:

Nice to know they will be doing Leader Snarl, and hopefully not at Voyager size ;). I thought he would be last and that they'd do Swoop as the next release, since he had a lot more screen time in the movie than Snarl (blink and you'll miss him).

I'll be curious to see if they do anything with the tail by way of articulation. The one thing that always bugged me was how inflexible the tail was, when it was supposed to be Snarl's primary weapon.

My thoughts as well. The big hurdle there is his robot mode. If it was a straight rerelease, it would have to go under the SS86 line, since G1 Bee and Bayverse Bee are different. I thought maybe it could be another shot at Bee from the Bee movie itself, but that wouldn't work. Besides, even for his short screen time, Bee was an important character in TF:TM, he should be represented in the line.

Well, that DotM Laserbeak is really surprising, but I love it! That is how you do an off the cuff out of nowhere figure. I love it!

I hope the voyager NEST listing is a retooled Ironhide like his RotF Recon toy. I would LOVE that!

I did get the NEST Bumblebee too, he is pretty nice. The colors are good on this mold

It is pink. It's just bizarrely a deep shade of pink rather than light pink.

Wow, that is pretty quick.

That's wave 3 of studio series 2022 coming in exactly as the 3rd quarter starts.

By comparison, I am so far behind locally that I bought my wave 1 deluxes on Pulse during that sale and can finally join in on the conversation regarding those.

That SS BB Ratchet toy really surprised me. While I wasn't sure at first since parts of the alt mode looked off, I just fell in love with the transformation. The team at Hasbro really went out of their way for this ratchet toy, giving us very different looking modes from robot to cybertronian vehicle that bring new details to each mode while also using the same parts in new ways. It really is my perfect type of transformer.

While I don't like the robot mode aesthetic of the Bumblebee movie cast, the Studio Series toys really show off, to me, what the design team could do if they weren't shackled by screen accuracy as they are now. These characters didn't have any alt-modes designed for the movie, so the toy design team had to come up with some. Aesthetic preferences aside, Arcee, Wheeljack, Ratchet and Brawn all look like they have very fun and interesting trasformations. I'm convinced that the outstandingly fun transformations the toys based on the cybertron scene have are in no small part a consequence of the design team actually getting to choose at least one of the modes for once. Not being beholden to someone else's idea of what at least one of the modes should look like means they get to cut loose with the transformation and make sure it's a fun toy first, a small replica second.

This is the stuff we miss out on when the pipeline is media design first, then toy design. That's why so much people like the ancillary bots from 2007, RotF and Hunt for the Decepticons so much more than the ones representing guys who were actually on screen. It's also why Animated is top notch: there was active communication between media designers and toy designers, so it hit a very special sweet spot that neither toy-first nor media-first approaches can hit.

Another mysterious Studio Series WFC listing has appeared, this time for a Deluxe Barricade...which still does nothing to .determine which WFC this is referencing.

...the alt modes are definitely similar, but they practically have inverted proportions compared to each other in bot mode, so a new mold would probably work better. Plus the Cliffjumper repaint-with-new-head option still exists to give the mold reuse, if this is what's happening and that would be a concern.

I can't believe we've reached the point where I'm actively in favor of yet another new SS Bumblebee mold

I mean, if you want to get real pedantic here, games are made by studios. It's called High Moon Studios after all.

Man, just imagine all the generic Seeker and Battlecharger repaints they could do if they started doing Devastation repaints.

With that logic, we could even extend it to TV series, too, as those are also made by studios. Hasbro's production company Allspark was even originally named Hasbro Studios, and one subsidiary is named Boulder Media Studio. Lots more studios to pick from as well.

Maybe Studio Series is evolving the same way the Masters of the Universe Masterverse is. It started as a line for the Revalations series, now it has incorporated the CGI series, the original series (for the 40th anniversary) and even figures based on tweaked concept art.

I'm not against a catch all Generations Transformers line that's outside the current themed main line. They're quickly hitting the wall for movie figures they haven't already made (sometimes multiple times) so letting it evolve isn't such a bad idea.

Except, Legacy is pretty much a catch all Generations Transformers line too, picking from all over the brand's history and media for whatever toys it wants to include. Studio Series going to same route would make the two line pretty indistinguishable from each other beyond one still making some toys based on the live action movies and one that doesn't, at which point they might as well just be the same line.

You're thinking short term, I'm thinking long term. That's what Legacy is right now (if you pretend Prime Universe isn't in it), in 2024 the line that takes that slot could literally be anything. Besides, Kingdom and SS86 were nearly indistinguishable from each other, we have the Jazz and Cliffjumper repaints and retools to prove it, and they coexisted.

You really made me hunt for this reply... :-P

Not sure what you mean by the Netflix line since that line barely incorporated anyone that wasn't G1 (Beast Wars is arguably still G1). The Volocitron line is considered an offshoot of Legacy rather than its own thing.

Thundercracker is great.

Seems like you've never seen the pictures of Cybertron Metroplex's alt mode, as it is a very real thing (it's also gigantic) also if the name bothers you, just call him by his Japanese Galaxy Force name ;)^



All movie designs are ugly
Metroplex is cool I guess...
I beleive his Japanese name is Megalo Convoy (Megalo Convoy for me, I guess)
Hilariously, his Korean name is "Super Metroplex"

All these figures are great, I'm so glad to have them!


Oh man, that's such bad luck. I hope your family gets better soon and that you can finish isolation in time to see the re-release.

Your custom paintjobs look stunning, as usual. They'd look awesome displayed in front of a background that evokes the alleyway where they first meet Sam!

While I wouldn't go so far to say that, they are ugly/too busy aesthetically to me. I've always felt that they were overly designed. Now that said I can see the need for their Cybertronian forms to look very Alien to us, but once they came to Earth it would stand to reason that they would take on an Earthly design/look for both modes not just alt mode. JMO

Thus why I never bought into the Movie lines, one reason is that in bot mode a lot of them look very oddball or miss-shaped hunks of parts.

I found one lonely Bumblebee movie Wheeljack at my local bam the other day! He is really neat. The transformation is much more involved than you'd think, but in a good way. Getting him clicked into vehicle mode is satisfying and he passes the roll test! (That's a big part of my grade when reviewing a toy :lol: )
He also pairs super well with a fellow Cybertrinian style figure Tetrajet Screamy Star.

Only thing I could nitpick on is his ankle tilt is depressingly poor and could use some paint on a few parts, but that's easy enough for me to do myself
Now I'm looking forward to picking up Ironhide and maybe Arcee and that'll probably be it for Bee movie cybertron modes for my shelf

Same way I feel about Ratchet. These BB toys are turning out great.

While not a physical retail sighting, Amazon is one of the biggest Transformers toy retailers in the world, so we would remiss not mentioning that the latest voyager class Studio Figures are now in stock and shipping. You will find links below along with a video review of Galvatron from Chuckdawg and Emgo. Enjoy!

Thank you very much! I think when I get Prime and Jazz all the way complete I'll have to try and do something like that background, that's a great idea!

Super bummer dude, sorry to hear that!

So I got Thundercracker and Galvatron this weekend and got to mess with them.

Thundercracker is really nice, and might be my favorite of the 3 versions of this mold so far. It's also kinda awesome that we now have 3 versions and none are straight repaints yet. And the mold is fun, if a bit ungainly at times. I prefer the gas mask head too, it is nice.

Sadly Galvatron is not very good. I was hoping in hand he would be better, but he actually feels worse. It is very obvious to me he was a figure that needed a leader budget and got stuck at a voyager. The paint work, while more extensive than his last attempt, being only half done actually makes him look worse. And the legs and square torso just don't look that good, he is too stocky compared to how he should look.

i applaud the attempt to integrate his transformation better, but in practice, he needed more engineering and more paint. He needed that leader budget. I hate to say it, but I think this is a SS release where the original release might actually still be the better figure.

Bummer about Galvatron. My Galvy and TC shipped from Deep Discount, I'm a little concerned, but I've never handled the original truck so I wonder if my first impressions will be different.

I'm not a huge fan of Galvatron as a whole, nothing about his character really appeals to me the way the other four versions of Megatron do, he just feels like a footnote in the franchise. Sentinel Prime was a better villain. But now I have a couple KSI bots so not having some version of him has left a gap in my collection.

Whan I first saw this figure, I thought it was really bed, but I also thought "Well, maybe once I'll watch a video about it I'll change my opinion". I was right: now I think it's quite ugly.

Looks like if Megatron swallowed a washing machine. Ther's even the porthole.

I just transformed him again, and going to robot mode the transformation was fun. I like how involved it is and how it does a decently good job of hiding away the alt mode. The robot mode is warming on me some, but I just mostly see the flaws unfortunately

Thanks to Hasbro Pulse, we have word that live action movie fans are about to get a very special treat in honor of 2022 being the 15th Anniversary of the Live Action film franchise. That treat is a 5-pack of the original Autobot team from the 2007 movie!

The new multi-pack consists of the original 5 on-screen Autobots: Optimus Prime, Ironhide, Ratchet, Bumblebee, and Jazz. Optimus utilizes the 2nd version of the voyager mold with the more screen accurate chest, Ratchet comes with his original release saw, Bumblebee uses the later movie 1 tooling, while Ironhide and Jazz use their only mold releases to date. The figures have also been repainted with some additional paint apps, most noticeably some extra silver on Ironhide and Ratchet as well as gold highlights on Jazz.

As is typical for Studio Series, the set also comes with a backdrop, or in this case, 2 backdrops, one showing the alley where the 5 Autobots originally united, and a 2nd showing the Witwicky household where they tried to hide to hilarious effect from Sam's parents.

The preorder is stated on Pulse to be an Amazon exclusive, and retails for $141.99, a fair price given current deluxe and voyager prices. The preorder is currently open for Pulse premium members and should be open around 2 for non-Premium members. We are awaiting Amazon preorders.
