Thanks to fellow Seibertronian Bacem, we now have more images of the Studio Series line to go with the ones we previously saw for Leader Blackout and others. These images all come from the same event held in China a month ago but they are being released at a snail's pace from the usual weibo users. These images show us the best look so far at voyager Optimus Prime along with more of voyager Starscream and our very first look at deluxe Ratchet and deluxe Crowbar in robot mode. Crowbar was part of the list of toys included in this line, which you can see here, and seems to be a slight retool of Decepticon Berserker. We included an image below for comparison.

All these toys are scheduled for 2018 and should be at the same price points we saw in the Transformers: The Last Knight toyline.

Optimus doesn't look to good sadly, very different looking transformation scheme it already looks like. Ratchet looks like does from his DoTM deluxe figure just modified which I guess I'm okay with. Starscream looks fantastic but I'll keep with the leader class figure of course. And Crowbar? I want him. Just wish he was a voyager.

Crowbar being retooled from Berserker makes me think the Toyhax stickers will mostly fit him too and make the alt-mode much more detailed. :)

I need that Starscream so bad, despite the trash talk he's been getting from other people lately he's one of my favorite movie designs.I have the leader RotF version and I love him but this guy looks like the deluxe upscaled and touched up on, plus he scales better with my movie collection. I can wait longer on the others (Optimus looks mostly good, but I have a lot of Optimus already) but I want Starscream asap.

Didn't know of trash talk but he's my fave Starscream design and one of my fave TF designs ever (once I got used to him after a few months since the very first reveal of him over 10 years back) and this toy looks very promising from the photo.

I mean, ratchet doesnt look too bad just a bit paintless and his head to shoulder are is wigging me out. Crowbar looks alright but since he's berserker we all know he's gonna be a fiddly mess unless Hasbro got their shit together

Comparing Crowbar to Berserker, more parts have been switched out than initially thought:

- the head
- the lower legs? and feet
- the arms?

Is that the new standard now?

Called it, knew Crowbar was gonna be that specific remold. Which is fine, he SHOULD be similar to Berserker/Crankcase. Will definitely pick him up.

Gonna need some more images of that OP before I make a call on him, he looks a little...wide? could be the camera, the pose, or just a mistransformation, but he looks like he's been having a few too many energon donuts or something in that image.

Ratchet looks bad. Could be the angle, but he's appears really skinny with thick legs, and the big panel flipped down his back isn't fooling anyone.

That Starscream is tempting! I wasn't even thinking about grabbing him, I already have the voyager from the first movie and the leader version from HftD, but he looks really good, and that saw hand makes him pretty unique compared to the other figures we've gotten of him.

OK, I NEED that Crowbar. And a Berserker for that matter- what a pity he's sold out everywhere. I was hoping he'd bargain bin but apparently not.

Got mine when Tesco did a sale a few months ago and had Deluxes for £14 down from £23. Of course it was all Wave 1 cos most shops still haven't gotten to wave 2 but I hadn't got Berserker by that point so was quite happy to make the purchase. He's fun. :)

Someone on another forum pointed out that Prime seems to be a heavy retool of TF4 Evasion Mode Optimus.

To name a few similarities:

- The shoulders and upper arms being one solid piece
- The chest panels appear to fold in from the sides
- The front wheels of the truck are on the hips

This is purely conjecture, but it's an interesting theory nonetheless.

Also, to those worried about the proportions, most of the figures (particularly Crowbar) look pretty egregiously mistransformed. Crowbar's legs, for example, should be in a digitigrade stance like Berserker.

People shout retool too quickly whenever they see design points in common. #-o As far as we know, Crowbar is the only one, the rest are all new molds.

With the Transformers: Studio Series line just around the corner, with new teases every week that will hopefully soon lead up to the official reveal, we bring to you news that the line may be even closer than we think. Despite not being officially revealed yet, with only fuzzy images showing us boxes and some fuzzy display images, Walmart has listed 2 of the Studio Series figures on its website, though both are minus any images.

What's interesting about the listings is the use of Starscream's actual name for his listing, but the other listing is for a character named, or codenamed, Radar, suggesting some of the figures may be using codenames, just like in the recent The Last Knight toyline. Who "Radar" refers to is unknown at this time, but we are hoping the official reveals are just around the corner!

I think Caesium might be onto something, since I just thought that the rear wheels might take some engineering cues from M-01 Commander, where the "middle" tires can be relocated to the hips, creating that double tire look that Movie Prime has.

Ratchet, Crowbar, and Starscream all look pretty good. I have the Desert Tracker Ratchet, and kinda want a new Ratchet, so we'll see with this guy. But so far so good!

Crowbar looks like a good retool. I loved the designs of the Dreads and Wreckers. Now we just need Leadfoot and Hatchet in deluxe scale!

"Radar" is almost certainly Optimus, it's listed as a voyager and he was the other wave 1 voyager in the original leak. Plus, I doubt they'd launch this line without an OP available right from the start like every other movie line.

Agreed, though I sure would like to think this is a secret figure for the Bumblebee movie.

Looks like the chest should be on some hinges. I do wonder if the middle set of tires would go onto his hips.
