Edit: It’s hard to tell, but it looks like Clunker Bee’s hood/windshield assembly has a pin through it now! Glad they did fix it if they did, because SS Bee really is a great figure.

WWII Bee is probably going to end up being my Generations version of Bulkhead just because of the color and my lack of a Bulkhead for that display. But now I understand why Megs had his cloak in the movies. That face is ugly... Hope DNA Designs puts out a set for him with a better cloak and head mold, but if they don't I'm fine with using the stock head and covering it with the cloak
That face is supposed to be hideous, remember? It was like that in the movie, because he was recovering from Optimus blasting half his face off in the final battle of the last one

I think the bumper parts of Barricade's chest have been shown to tilt angled in other photos but they're straight here so hoping that's just been missed out by whomever transformed him.
Jetfire's jet mode does show whiskers for some reason but eh it's fine I guess, the robot mode is what I'm wanting though which is a huge improvement over the RotF figure.
Sideswipe is nice. Still would prefer it to be his roofed RotF car mode though.
Clunker Bee annoys me in that they STILL haven't painted his shoulders properly but hey that's fine I corrected it on my SS01 version anyways. Don't need this one.
Not massively fussed by WWII Bee if I'm honest. Probably one I'll get if I can find it cheaper than normal. I prefer the third party one that's based on the actual car he turns into in the movie.
Optimus just looks lovely but again will need Toyhax stickers and a bit of paint like I did with my first release.

Gonna come right out and say it: He is not very good. I think a majority of his problems would be solved if they did his muscle car form. This chopper mode, it just doesn't work. It's really fiddly and has a lot of clear plastic parts. and it's nowhere near dark blue enough. The arms don't looks really good, I'm not a fan of how wide his crotch is, and his posability is limited in ways I don't really like either.
To keep this coptor mode, he needed to be like 15-20% larger, have no clear plastic, and have some better arms. I really hope they do his muscle car form so we get that mode and give him some justice.

Starting with Barricade, we have a nice look at the figure that utilizes some of the transformation tricks his MPM self had, and we also see that his chest is mostly real car parts in robot mode, with only the center moving out of the way to allow for the angry chest slant. He is also unique in that he is a Barricade figure that ends up with the hood as the outside piece of his back complete with a bumper-butt.
Up next, we have a nice look at Sideswipe, based on his Dark of the Moon form. The toy switches back to having the movie accurate rear end of the car become the chest (something the Dark of the Moon deluxe did not do), and he comes with a pair of blasters and a fair of detachable swords that peg into his hands. He is also the first Sideswipe figure to actually have the sides of his chest (the rear fenders and tail lights) slant in in a movie accurate style.

Found that review while Watching Barricades! Just added it to the story! Both look pretty decent. Will probably get both

These are due to hit mass retail early next year along with Voyager Class 2007 Movie Optimus Prime, Bonecrusher and Leader Class Revenge of the Fallen Jetfire, Leader Class Dark of the Moon Megatron.
Have you ordered yours yet, waiting to catch one in the wild at retail or have something else to say about the Studio Series line? Join in the discussion at the Engergon Pub forums!

I'm amazed at the rate these releases are coming at, really. Sometimes the wait between Generations figures feels like an age, yet these feel like a pretty steady beat.
