Fellow Seibertronian Deadput has found images of the back of the box and instructions for the upcoming Transformers Studio Series leader class Dark of the Moon Megatron (I swear, these names are getting longer every year). The toy comes in at 30 steps, which is the same amount of steps leader Grimlock had. So an overly complex Transformation should not be expected. We can already tell that some parts are rather simple, like the blocky feet which we now know were most probably not mistransformed in the initial image we saw. We have confirmation that he comes with Igor and that he is number 34. With Jetfire being number 35, it is most likely the case that this Megatron is part of the first wave of 2019 Studio Series figures. The images were found on the the TF Factory Weibo page.

UPDATE: We also have a list from the Loopaza Megastore of all upcoming Takara releases of this same line. Please remember that the only difference between these and the Hasbro releases are the numbers. We do get further confirmation of another Optimus Prime coming our way. Is there such a thing as too many Optimus Primes? Let us know.

This looks way better than the first time we saw him. I can't wait for more pictures. Before, everything in Studio Series was hit and miss for me, mostly wave 1 though, but now I want everything that will come out. I can't wait for it all :BOWDOWN:

Are most of these Studio Series repaints or are they new?

I don't think that ANY of them are straight repaints, except for the Drift with Baby Dinobots.

Ratchet and Starscream are similar to their DOTM molds with some differences.

I think the Lockdown and Grimlock ones are pretty similar, but have slight remolding.

Most are new but based on previous toys in some way (like transformation). However, within the line itelf, there are lost of repaints.

Thundercracker is as well, and so is Cogman.

DOTM Megatron looks better than he did in that first image, I’ll probably be getting him since this is my favorite version of Megatron. I want to see how he scales with SS Prime though, I hope he’s not too out of scale in robot mode.

I mean I'm sure your being snarky or something but an actual statistic of the main line (Not including exclusives) the line has.

23 new molds (Sort of 24 with wave one old Camaro Bee only being based off the TLK Wave 3 Bee in engineering while it's really a new mold because of the different size)

1 remold: Crowbar from TLK Berserker which makes sense since their very similar body types in the first place (2 if you count the Camaro Bee)

6 repaints with new head/accessories.

2 straight repaints, Cogman (Whose original toy saw limited distribution) (Crankcase who is a repaint of Crowbar and sadly not Crankcase like he should be)


Including exclusives there is 7, with 5 straight repaints (6 if you include Drift which while he himself is a new repaint he comes with new accessories including mini dinobots)

1 being a repaint with new parts (2 if you include Drift)


Edit: while I was typing this I forgot about the two multipacks which 1 is just a bundle of two "retail" figures, one being a studio series VW Bee and a "reissue" of the TLK wave 3 camaro Bee which besides here has no release in studio series, the other is a repaint of wave 1 ss old camaro Bee that comes with new vehicle parts and a Charlie figure.

By Primus he looks gorgeous... I loved this design, so bestial and ragged... a true Frankenstein's Creation of parts and pieces... hopefully (can't quite tell) he has different arms like in the movie

Not being snarky, was a genuine question. I been ignoring these because I thought they were all repaints initially. I'm looking back now after seeing all the news with this line. The DOTM Megatron was what got me looking closer!

He's in the straight repaint category (I either accidentally moved him to the repaints with new accessories category when I decided that it should be it's own category separate from straight repaints or I forgot about him completly which is possible since I was going by memory until I looked up the wiki for the exclusives)

So make it 3 there

Oh I see, I wasn't sure because you never know when it comes to people on the internet.

Yeah I originally thought SS was just gonna be a one year filler line for the Bee movie to make up for the reduced cast of the Bee movie.

To be fair, the first wave of Deluxes were mostly based on older figures when it came to engineering, so that may have skewed our views a bit. All in all though, most are new molds, with only #25 Bumblebee, Cogman, Thundercracker and multi-pack Drift directly derived from older lines.

Thanks to fellow Seibertron user, PrimevPrime, we have an English video review of Transformers Studio Series Deluxe Class KSI Sentry! Sentry is a blue redeco and a slight retool of Stinger who was released back as part of the first wave of Studio Series Deluxes.




Those who are looking for this guy should keep an eye on store shelves over the next couple of weeks as he'll be in the same wave as Bumblebee movie antagonist Dropkick.

Will you be picking KSI Sentry up? Will you be troop building him so that Stinger can lead an army of his own? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews.

Won't be troop building but I will almost certainly get one cos I love the Stinger mold and that shade of blue and that new head sculpt and I want his blue(s) brother (of sorts) here to go with him for a nice red/blue combo. I guess like Shatter and (car) Dropkick are. :O Heck, Stinger and Sentry could be my movie-verse Runabout and Runamuck I suppose.

And yes I wanna see more of that DotM Megatron. The detail looks promising and I do love the lil Igor bonus figure.
