We have some new stock images of the upcoming Transformers Studio Series 65 Voyager Blitzwing. This gives us our best look yet at the final product and sadly, it's not all good news. We see taht the head is indeed not painted and that concurs with other images we saw of that toy, like these in package images. These images show us the various weapons he has along with images of the alt mode at different angles. The images come from the In Demand Toys website.

Given how this stage of promo pics has still been wrong before about paint apps, there is still a chance the final figure's head will be painted correctly, a la Studio Series Leader Optimus' ab piece and Earthrise Optimus' hands, head, and pelvis.

You know what accessory HasTak overlooked that I hoped someone makes? Rampage's cannons.

Kinda lame with the white head, but aside from that, I’m really liking him a lot. I’m sure some black paint or a Sharpie will fix the white head fairly easily.

Rampage already has his cannons. They're not impressive, but they gave you the option for them.

...I'm just gonna hope that that sample of Blitzwing is just incorrect, otherwise that's unfortunate. I'm still really glad he comes with both his weapons though.

They didn't overlook them, you're supposed to remove the bulldozer mode pistons and plug them into his hands. They aren't the most screen-accurate guns in the line, but they also definitely didn't forget them.

If that head is the Final Deco and it's not Black like it should be I'm not buying. It'd go against the Modus Operandi of the line of Screen accuracy and Scale and Jeep Bumblebee is both.

My attempt at "fixing" Blitzwing, I just added the needed black and grey to his head and crotch, while giving him the extra detail of painted wheels. Really excited for Blitzwing, in any case. He looks fabulous.

Remember y'all:

SS-44 "final" promo pic with unpainted red abs:

SS-44 actual figure with painted silver abs:

ER OP "final" promo pic with unpainted grey hands and silver painted codpiece and yellow painted eyes:

ER OP actual figure with painted blue hands and codpiece and light blue painted eyes:

Now, does this mean the final Blitzwing will definitely have the correctly painted head? No, but it does mean this is by no means definitely representative of the final figure.

That head definitely looks weird. Hopefully this is a DotM Prime case.

Ah, I see. I don't think I saw that in the instructions. Thank you for pointing it out.

I really hope you can mount the missiles under the wing using the slot in the top because they do not look good upside-down in the jet mode photo. They look to be removable, so fingers crossed. Worst case, I just leave them out for jet mode.

And you're right that you didn't see them in the instructions, they aren't there, I checked while posting, but it is an official feature because Hasbro shows it in the stock photo on the figure's packaging (and I want to say they displayed it that way before it came out, but I don't recall for certain).

I'm worried this will be yet another solid SS mold ruined by terrible cheap paint. I know it's not final but SS track record in the paint department is not great imo.

Despite being a completionist, I passed on Crankcase and KSI Boss. I'm not usually hung up on screen accuracy, but when that's the point of the entire toyline, these two should just not exist as is.

This mold looks great!

KSI Boss was still a great army builder with solid paint.

Crankcase on the other hand...

I’m still confused as to why they didn’t just repaint the Berserker mold for Crankcase. I know Berserker wasn’t great, but I still think it’s better figure than Crowbar, especially after gluing the arm panels on, which wouldn’t be difficult for Hasbro to do.

I’m sure Blitzwing’s head will be painted on the final version, like everyone’s said. The robot mode looks pretty well done, I’m just so bummed we didn’t get a licensed F-4 mode, or something that looks pretty close to an F-4. I’ll pass on Blitzwing and probably pick up Skipjack instead, since I didn’t get Rampage.

It looks like a literal skull, I'm kinda down for that :-?

I'm not sure screen accuracy has ever been the main goal of studio series going by all the ss figures that aren't. Not going to get my hopes up for a more accurate springer over the slightly flawed siege springer going forward.

Seems every figure has to have some glaring uglyness (like blitzs missiles in jet mode) so some has/tak employee can make a killing on the side with their third party upgrade business :(

I highly doubt that's the case. It's mostly just corporate pennypinching budget limits to maximize HasTak's own profit margins on the toys themselves. Plus of course the general downsizing.

However, the Studio Series original molds are in fact meant to be more screen accurate within those limits, at least for important characters and first uses.
