We have an update to the images posted yesterday which show us the other modes for each toy, which were found through some more digging on the Walmart website.

Thanks to Walmart/Brickseek, we have confirmation of four upcoming Transformers Studio Series. We have SS 44 Leader Class Dark of the Moon Optimus Prime who is, as we guessed, the same voyager Optimus Prime we already got with a retooled abdominal area and a jetwing backpack. The trailer can be converted into the weapons platform we see in DOTM. We then have a new SS 45 Deluxe Class Age of Extinction Drift which while having the distinctive Bugatti details, turns into a helicopter. It shares some parts with SS Helicopter Drokick but is very much it's own mold all the same. There is also SS 47 Deluxe Class Revenge of the Fallen Constructicon Hightower, a new mold, who can transform to be part of Devastator. Lastly we have SS 43 Voyager KSI Boss, another goon from Age of Extinction, which we now know is a straight redeco of the Nitro Zeus mold, head and all, making it innacurate to his look in the film. You can see the images and the links to the pages below, and be sure to check back tomorrow and the rest of the week-end for all our 2019 Toy Fair news.

Is it weird that I want both the voyager and the leader Optimus?
Mostly because Voyager will probably appear on shelves in my area while the leader not... but who knows..
Sigh, I guess my wallet needs to start saving for a hard hit!

Shame you can't get just that sweet trailer, SS38 could use one, the wheels are a pretty good match, just saying. :-?

Drift looks surprisingly good and I love the deco for KSI Boss. I might have to double dip on the Nitro mold.

Me too, well, er, sextuple-dip? I have 2 Nitros and 3 Thundercrackers making up my "Thunder-Seekers" using the Thunderwing, Scopronock, Overboard, Fangry and Apeface TR heads. Looks like Horri-bull and/or Crashbash might be in line for a body soon.

They retooled DOTM Optimus's ribs, but left them red instead of gray/silver.

Silver paint on the new ab piece is an easy fix. They still haven't painted his robot mode flames. :P

I'd much rather have the proper looking truck mode flames than robot mode honestly, as robot mode doesn't look like it's missing anything to me.

And yeah, silver Sharpie for the abs is an easy fix

It always looks like it's missing to me. It's frustrating as heck. Been that way with AoE, TLK, SS05, SS32 and now this one. For each of those I've had to pay out for Toyhax stickers (not SS32 yet cos they haven't done those) cos the robot mode flames are essential to me and I can't paint them myself cos I suck at that sort of detailed and symmetric line work. :(

I feel you, that would probably bother me more on my ROTF Leader. I guess sacrifices have to be made if the chest is faux parts.

Now here's an interesting question: would you rather trade in the silver paint apps on the wheels for the robot mode flames? :-?

Yep. I can paint the wheels like I have done on some other figures (SS32 has it already done by Habsro but SS05 did not so I had to have a go). Not always the most cleanly but still better than I can paint the flames. :P

The flames are missing on the chest, shoulder pads and the lower inner legs. And sort of on the outer legs which is a tricky thing cos they're supposed to be made from the front wheel sections which do have flames but on this figure are made from the back which doesn't have flames on the truck mode but I used the Toyhax stickers that added them cos robot mode gets priority for me. :P So it's quite a lot of missing flames that bug me. Still, that's what Toyhax is for so again I'll add on the extra cost of stickers to the price of this Prime too like I have done for the last four or five figures. :P

I think Drift reuses the original Dropkick's lower legs.

Anyway I missed out on the original Nitro Zues mold so I may have to get this one. It looks pretty good.

Helicopter Drift looks really cool, but I'm gonna hold off on this guy for a while.

I don't know why no one is talking about HighTower but he's so freaking awesome. He looks so strange and it looks so cool. I love both modes, and I love what they did with his neck. Yeah, he's not 100% accurate to the concept art but this change was for the better. I wanted a proper figure of this guy for so long, and seeing it is just so awesome. He's a must buy for me.

The new leader DoTM Optimus looks way cooler than I previously thought. I love the fact that they gave him a trailer and that weapons ring thing. Also, FINALLY THE RIGHT PAINT SCHEME! That is awesome. He just looks like a fun figure overall. I'll most likely get this guy.

Exactly. I can paint the silver on the abs super easily, but I can’t paint that orange fade on the front of the truck, so I’m super happy with the paint apps he has.

Don't miss out on the mold if you can get one. By far one of my favorite transformations across all the lines. Headmaster compatibility with Cogman and Titans Return is a sweet bonus.

I hate how Hightower looks, always have. They really just gave up when designing him. We could’ve gotten a dude with a hook for a hand but they made that instead.

Thanks for the heads up. I'm liking this guy the more I look at him.

I wouldn't say they gave up. He's honestly one of the more unique looking constructicons. I personally love the look.

I can't believe they actually gave us T-Rex Hightower, definite buy. Drift looks like a G.I. Joe vehicle, which I'm perfectly alright with. Prime and KSI Boss are cool too. :D

Agreed, I love the design, if I want a hook for a hand I go to Lockdown anyway ;)

Same.

You know what other constructicon was really cool? Mixmaster! I can't wait to see how they handle that guy!

Interesting on OPs Trailer, seems to look good, cant wait for additional photos. I am liking the helicopter version of Drift.
Would be neat if they did DOTM Wreckers, one can only dream!

DOTM Prime is everything I wanted him to be. They even gave him the shield that he used for all of two seconds.

Here's hoping we get a Sentinel Prime soon.
