From the official social media page of the Transformers brand, we have a new 'Leaked From Cybertron' composite image, this time showing off another new addition to the Transformers Studio Series line - one we saw first revealed at San Diego Comic Con 2018, and will undoubtedly see again at New York Comic Con next week - from the upcoming Bumblebee Movie: Decepticon Dropkick!

Shown in the image below in the robot mode, with the helicopter mode as default (rather than the other alt mode of a blue muscle car), at least in its initial prototype mode, featuring some grey and clear plastic on the base mold, and a sorta look at the headsculpt. Check it out!

Decepticon DROPKICK is as bad as they come. Here's an exclusive reveal of a stage 1 production prototype of this Decepticon menace! This is Studio Series Deluxe Class Dropkick – Transformers: Bumblebee

@Ironhidesnh Very cool. Very different transformations from the same alt-mode. :)

A little flimsy and floppy, to be honest. Very nice design, but the quality is lacking.

Quite a lot of fun. Was a pain in the butt the first time I transformed him to car mode as I couldn't seem to line up everything probably and when I squeezed one part into place, another part of the roof popped out but I got there. Also the mask gimmick was tricky cos the regular face was really hard to remove on mine and the whole head kept popping off when I tried (in fact the gimmick would probably have been a whole lot simpler with the whole head being swappable rather than the faces) but I used some tweezers to prise off the face to put the mask on and switched them back without problem now the face has been taken off that first time. I think the only part of the figure that bugs me is the back end of the car on the back of the lower legs. Just wish it was a bit neater and compact and clicked together nicely. But yeah other than that I'm pretty happy with him and he looks great and poses quite nicely (I like the articulation in the arms especially). I'm gonna paint some extra yellow and silver in places where he should have them too to make him more accurate.

I’ve had some issues pegging everything tightly into vehicle mode, but robot mode on my VW Bee is pretty stable. He’s a lot of fun! He does also have an issue with the armor on the back of his legs getting in the way of itself to hinder posing, but my god he’s an improvement over Camaro Bee. Most of it is in the backpack - it actually holds together without falling out and is uses pins so it shouldn’t loosen horribly. Plus I LOVE the battle mask, I’m displaying mine with it.

Sorry, this is the only picture I have since I’m at work but I did manage to find the Marvel Legends Thing yesterday too so getting him and Bumblebee both at once was great

So much sass in such a little bug.

I actually do still prefer my camaro Bee figure but yes pins it the roof section of that would have been nice (though as shown in pics and video I posted here ages ago mine is fine after having added bit more friction in that particular roof joint).

Got them in similar poses like a team up. I really don't like VW Bee's gun arm though. It just looks pitiful compared to the bulkier ones on other Bee figures.

Out of curiosity, can you swap the bee cannons? Or are they non-compatible?

Just tried and nope cos surprisingly Vw Bee has a thicker elbow joint that means Camaro Bee's arm cannon will not fit over it and Vw Bee's puny weapon doesn't fit on Camaro Bee's elbow joint either.

Received SS VW Bee. It's a fiddly mess going to vehicle mode. Maybe I'm missing something but it's pretty frustrating right now.

Best way I've found is leave the butt end of the car folded down (behind his lags) and save that for last. I usually fold the side stuff into place (doors, headlights), then plug the roof/hood in, then push arms in place and close the front wheel wells, then finally the car butt. It's definitely annoying to line everything up though.

I heard that from others as well. Not sure about this one. Really hated that Camaro.

I found the first time transfdrming him into car mode was tricky but after a couple goes I found it much easier now I have a better sense of where everything goes and what fits where and the tolerances and such. Very happy with the figure overall but as I said before I just still prefer the Camaro Bee but both are currently my 'deskbots' that are getting much play while I procrastinate on my projects. :P

I know we're all excited about the new VW Bee, but I want to take a step back to wave 2 again cause Jazz is still really really awesome

Yeah, my Jazz is far superior to the Beetle Bee.

Got shadow raider and vw bee today... bee is hot garbage, but shadow raider kinda makes me want 2 more re-uses of the lockdown mold (one in navy and one in red with silver stripes) for a whole team for him, they're just so cool, with their interchangeable weapons, the way the gun attaches into the arm is so cool

Bee is a mess with a dumb alt mode... if he tabbed together, I might feel different about him, but holy mother of god is he a pain in my d### to even try to tab together, and the hood clearance in bot mode to fold his trunk under is so close to non-existent, it makes want to never transform him again; that being said, he's got a bitchin' battle mask ;)^

Since I figured out how to get him to transform properly, he has rocketed way up to one of my faves, plus, he's pocket-sized to boot, so he can go anywhere :lol:

My main issue with Jazz was the price. But the toy itself is fine and yes, much better than VW Bee. I just got him today and hate him so much. Mine is defintitely defective due to one of his breastplates not turning, which messes the entire alt mode. Still, even if it worked, I woldnt know how to get that alt mode to tab together. Those pegs in the back really dont do much. I have a replacement on the way, we will see.
