We are updating the article below with more images of Studio Series SS 31 Battle Damaged Revenge of the Fallen Megatron from Robot Kingdom's Facebook page and Stanley Cheung on Facebook. These show the head in a close up as well as the darker plastic being used and the deco. We also see the back of the box which tells us that the backdrop will be the Egyptian temple where Prime battles both Megatron and the Fallen, leaving one with part of his head missing and the other without a face.

Knowing at least half a year's worth of the 2019 Studio Series offerings, there was one glaring unknown: SS 31. Well, now we know both what it is and why we had not heard of it before. SS 31 turns out to be none other than voyager Revenge of the Fallen (ROTF) Megartron with Battle Damage. That damage includes a new darker deco and a new head to reflect what he looked like at the end of ROTF. This was revealed on Hobbybase's Facebook page where it seems to be available in that particular store in Hong Kong.

The listing on Robot Kingdom tells us why we had not heard of it yet, it is an exclusive item. We do not know yet who in the US will be carrying this exclusive item, but judging at how easy every other Studio Series exclusive has been to order or obtain in the US, there shouldn't be anything to worry about.

Glarryg

That's probably because he's an extensive remold of Combiner Wars Scavenger. I'm honestly surprised with how so few people recognize this, assuming you hadn't yet yourself.

Sorry if that sounded "snobish", I meant it as an observation, not a condescending remark.

Its not being mentionned now because everyone already did back when he was first revealed, and we have moved on since.

I didn’t notice until you pointed it out just now.

...and at last, the mystery is solved, and everything is right with the line again. I have no interest in this figure, but I am very glad to have all the numbers accounted for. Does that make me OCD (an Order-Controlled Decepticon)? I dunno.

Also I still really want Scrapmetal, he looks so fun to just have around and pose.

I'm not even collecting these figures, and I'm glad the numbers all work now (even if it is a pretty low -hainging-fruit repaint) with a new head. Transformers and numbers-in-series has always been a BIG deal for me ;) .

I like it, it's different enough from the regular version for me, may have to get both :lol: Though, I wonder when they'll attempt another Fallen toy.

As for that Scrapmetal, what class is he again? Voyager?

Deluxe (argument against retool: different Class), along with Hightower. By contrast, Rampage and Long Haul are Voyagers.

Scrapmetal just seems to be re-using a lot of ideas and general concepts and improving on them. There can't be that many ways to turn an excavator into a robot?

I like his digitigrade legs and Muppet hands.

Know what else he vaguely resembles?

Catching up on a few topics:

I would not mind if they made a Bumblebee movie Wheeljack. I have grown to really love that design. He's my favorite Cybertron mode of the movie bots, period.

I'm super excited for the voyagers, leaders, and WWII Bee. I'm saving an amazon card to help buy them once they arrive.

The combination with Jetfire and Prime looks pretty dang good. I'm happy with it and can't wait to get it beside the RotF version.

As for a wishlist, I'm glad you brought this up Densh. Here is mine before this line ends, besides what is already known to be coming (constructicons wise really since we are getting Devastator [squeals]) and in order of appearance:

-Movie 1 Megatron (the existing voyager was my first TF ever, I want an update to stand beside him)
-Skids + Mudflap in their RotF chevy bodies (I got the Ice Cream Truck and DotM versions, DotM skids isn't good at all)
-Dino
-car Soundwave
-Leadfoot
-Roadbuster (needs weaponized)
-Topspin, if necessary. The first is already awesome
-voyager Slug
-WWII Hot Rod
-Proper Infernocus (preferably leader sized)
-Onslaught
-Mohawk

I'll have to get that new Megatron and sell off the old one.

My Studio Series crew! (Minus Ironhide and Beetlebee, plus DOTM Crankcase (formerly TLK Berserker)

Figured I’d get a group shot to send off 2018!

I did that with Optimus, thats why i always buy my figures as cheap as possible. So that i can then sell them as equally cheap if ever need be and not be stuck with a bunch of unwanted figures.

this line is not going to be one I actively collect, i think. just a handful of figures that stand out to me

Well I’m all in for this Battle Damage Megatron. I love that he’s actually painted, and not just plain grey plastic.

I’m so glad I just picked up some of the RotF Constructicons, because these SS ones are looking pretty lack luster so far, in terms of bot modes. I know they had to make some sacrifices to form a combiner. I’ll still be getting them though.

That's what I see the most, especially because of the hands. Interesting how they're all combiners.

BBTS has listings up for Wave 2 leaders and Wave 4 deluxes and voyagers, all estimated for this month. Man I wish they'd wait a month to come out, I'm still recovering from the holidays.

We have some good news to share on this new year's day (Happy New Year by the way), with the names of all components of the upcoming Studio Series Devastator combiner revealed along with their release schedule. An image from the inner instructions of the first Constructicon releases show us everyone needed to make Devastator, each sold separately, and the year they are coming out.

Here is the breakdown:

2019 Releases
- Scrapmetal deluxe
- Hightower deluxe
- Longhaul voyager
- Rampage voyager

2020 Releases
- Mixmaster
- Scavenger
- Scrapper
- Overload

That Scrapper is intriguing since he seems to take on the entire arm instead of half like Scrap Metal, meaning it would be a different toy. We do not have confirmation for the size classes of the Consttucticons coming out in 2020. What do you make of all this? Let us know!

Man, spaced out over the course of two years, that sucks big time, but I guess this confirms that they have plans to keep the series alive for at least this and next year; would also explain why the prototype they showed off only had som of the limbs finished, but man, that still sucks :BANG_HEAD:

I disagree. I cannot speak for everyone but money isn't necessarily tight but it doesn't flow like a tap, so splitting the 8 figures up over 2 years spaces it out and allows smaller purchases across time that spending about 200 quid at once. particularly if I'm right and Scavanger is a leader class figure.

I mean, they could have done it in the span of a year, 8 figures across 3 size classes, shouldn't have been difficult;
