Much like the previous stories covering the Transformers Studio Series - a new line of new issues of toys from the live-action movie series from Paramount - we have some slightly erased images about a figure we had yet to encounter in our coverage so far: Autobot leader Optimus Prime, and a better look at Decepticon second in command and number 6 in the series, Starscream!

Joining the likes of Blackout, Megatron, Brawl in the Decepticon line of of toys, Starscream is shown in the packaged images below, though we get no real look at the figure at all other than some box art, plus a look at the 5th figure in the same line being Autobot Leader Optimus Prime, and a new shot of Brawl's packaging (number 12 in the line), with the figure completely erased from view. Check them out below mirrored from Weibo user tf-factory!

Reissues? Are they referring to Movie the Best?

Dangit I cam here excitedly expecting to see new images of the actual figures. I wanna see Starscream muchly. Yes I'm impatient. This is very much likely my sole TF toyline for 2018 (movie stuff is my priority though I sometimes buy updated G1 stuff if i think it looks good or if a nice update of a fave childhood character though power of the primes has been mostly garbage so far so unlikely to spend much on that line).

Even from blurry photos these are looking very good (am assuming Prime's smokestacks are supposed to pull up in truck mode?)

I do hope there's a RotF Starscream deco at some point cos I really do love the cyber-tattoo look he has in that one and on the toys released from that film. Liking his buzzsaw too :)

From the looks of it, Optimus looks mistransformed. I do hope we get better images, and I have a feeling that they got the deco wrong on some parts on him like the side doors on his chest, speaking of, looks like the chest is a fake; odd since people said he'd be similar to MPM-4. Ratchet looks like a slender, taller retool of his DOTM deluxe, so that's not bad. Starscream looks like a shrunken down version of the Leader, and man is it odd seeing him without the tattoos. The Crankcase/Crowbar figure looks like a retool of Berserker; I wonder if they'll improve the issues some had with that figure.

Hadn't realised but yes you're right he does look like a retool. Which I'm fine with cos I really like my Berserker figure and haven't had any issues with it whatsoever (I was applying Toyhax stickers to it earlier though the main sticker sheet itself has an issue in that there's a large scratch across the right side but Toyhax are sending me a replacement anyways so it's all good). :D

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.
