Thanks to In Demand Toys on Facebook, we have a bunch of new images of the upcoming Transformers Studio Series Drift, Dropkick, Hightower, and Long Haul!

Drift is an extensive retool of the original Dropkick figure, being almost entirely new save for some parts of the legs, and he is based on his helicoptor form from Age of Extinction.

Dropkick is a new mold that is modeled after his muscle car form from the Bumblebee movie, prior to his taking on the triple changing form that he held for the remainder of the movie.

Hightower is based on some Constructicon concept art and the smaller Hightower legion figure that came out with the tiny Legion class Devastator during Revenge of the Fallen. Hightower is a new mold, and he forms the upper left arm of Studio Series Devastator.

Long Haul is also a new mold Constructicon, and he forms the right foot of Studio Series Devastator. He and Hightower will make 4 of 8 members of Devastator released at retail.

Check out the pictures below, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!

Not exactly: he forms the left upper arm, with Scrapmetal forming the actual hand.

Comparing Long Haul's foot mode with Rampage's, there's no doubt that Devastator is gonna look "messy" head to toe, in an artistic sense. :lol:

I read on tfwiki in the footnotes somewhere that this version of Devastator is bigger or smaller depending on how many Constructicons are merged. I think that’s a clever explain away for the jumbled mess that he became. Like with Rampage they’re each like a Deceptimonster in their own unique ways.

That chopper mode works way better on Drift I think it’s not great for either one but better on Drfift.

Dropkick certainly doesn't look like a new mold. If anything, I'd say it's a slight retooling of War for Cybertron: Siege's Prowl/Barricade/Smokescreen.

I doubt it. I imagine it's more that Dropkick design is fairly standard as carformers go (front becomes the chest, door wings, etc ad infinitum), so similarities are inevitable.

Pretty excited for this next wave, all in all. This is the first movie Drift toy that I actually want. It’s bound to be much better than Dropkick’s first figure. It’ll be great to have a good looking Dropkick, because like I said his first figure is pretty atrocious. He looks very solid. I doubt we’ll ever see him and Shatter as triple changers. I’m not sure if they could ever pull of all three modes without at least two of them looking like a kibbley mess.

The Constructicons are definitely the ones I’m looking forward to the most. I love for stubby and chunky Long Haul is. He’s certainly different enough from his RotF figure that I can have them together, and headcanon them into different but similar bots. I might be more excited for Hightower though? He’s got such a wonderfully unique and bizarre bot mode. Having another unorthodox looking Constructicon kind of makes Rampage’s and Demolisher’s appearance make more sense to me.

Speaking of him, are we getting a SS Demolisher???

Are we going to end up seeing a jet mode Shatter? Honestly like her better than Dropkick...

No, not a retool, most likely a new mold that may share some transformation aspects. There are 2 areas that give it away that is it definitely not the Siege Prowl mold. First is the very front of the car. They have a similar panel in the hood where the head pops out, but for dropkick the front bumper is involved where for Prowl the whole hood and bumper is 1 solid piece. The other tell are the wheels, they end up on the shoulders and the forearms for Dropkick. For Prowl, the rear wheels stay on his feet.

It just wouldn't make sense to retool a mold with those changes to the transformation. It would just be easier going with a new mold that takes some aspects of the transformation from Prowl and other like him where the hood/bumper becomes the chest.

Man this wave can’t be released fast enough! I need those Constructicons along with Drift; and knowing my brother, if Dropkick is any improvement over Shatter he’s going pick him up.

Technically, they are; the Constructicons that formed Devy in ROTF were different 'Cons, entirely separate from the ones that were fighting OP. This includes Scrapmetal; he did not die at the bottom of the ocean. I noticed all this when I recently rewatched the movie. Devastator is at the Pyramid, while Longhaul, Mixmaster, Scrapper, and Rampage are all fighting/dying near some ruins.

Yes, him and Longhaul Overload are going to be Leaders that make up Devastator's torso. Image

EDIT: Thanks to everyone who corrected my mix up #-o

Did you by any chance mean Overload? Long Haul is a voyager!

Actually, I believe Devy's component is going to be Scavenger (all red) instead of Demolisher (red and white) who was killed off before Devy made his appearance in the movie. But, there is a very good chance of getting a Scavenger redeco as Demolisher down the line somewhere.

Yeah it's scavenger who'll be released, that's what they said.

Scrapmetal wasn't one of the components who formed Devastator in that scene. He wasn't present for that part of the movie.

While Long Haul, Mixmaster, red Rampage, and Scrapper were fighting at the ruins like you say, a different Long Haul, Mixmaster, yellow Rampage (Skipjack?) and Scrapper formed Devastator along with Overload, Scavenger, an unnamed yellow dump truck (of a different model from both Long Hauls) and an unnamed yellow construction shovel (of a different model from both Scrappers and both Rampages).

The yellow dump truck combined with the yellow Rampage to form Devastator's leg, while the yellow shovel formed Devastator's hand when it attached to the arm formed by Hightower. SS Scrapmetal takes inspiration from this shovel by forming the same hand for SS Devastator, but is otherwise still his own separate guy from this shovel since he (Scrapmetal) retains his own unique backhoe altmode that was seen earlier in the film during the Megatron resurrection scene.

And Scavenger is gonna be a nice big leader, more fitting for the Demolishor body type seen in the film. I'm really excited for a larger wheelbot type robot!

Yeah, ScavDemengerorilisher was one of the more interesting movie designs that the original Voyager (that I loved at the time) didn't do justice.

And yes I meant Overload I'm just a dummy who can't remember names :c

Looks like the release schedule of the remaining Constructicons has been updated. Looks like the upcoming releases are coming sooner than before.

These come from Long Haul's instructions

Comparing them to my Scrapmetal's and Rampage's, these figures have seemingly been pushed up:
  • Rampage, from Late 2019 to Early 2019
  • Scrapmetal, from Early 2020 to Early 2019
  • Overload, from Late 2020 to Mid 2020

Oddly, Long Haul's and Hightower's dates are missing, probably because they're to be shipped around the same time (Mid to Late 2019).
