Fellow Seibertronian bacem has informed us of new images for next year's first two leader class toys in the Transformers Studio Series line. They are leader Shockwave and Scavenger. We previously had renders but these are stock images of the actual toys in their final deco. We see them both in their boxes and in their different modes, though the angle for Shockwave's alt mode is rather unflattering. Sadly, we do not have a good sense of their scale yet, which is rather important since the leader class has been all over the place in this line. It's still not clear just how big Scavenger is compared to his fellow movie Constructicons.

Both are due out early next year at wide retail at the standard $50 USD mark. The images come from In Demand Toys on Facebook.

I wonder what the little extra panel for Scavenger is used for, and whether it is just cosmetic for the alt mode or needed for forming Devy.

It looks to me like Scavengers wheels will be the big circular structures of Devastator's neck.

Probably alt mode bits like Scrapmetal

If that’s the case then that’s actually pretty clever!

I hope it at least goes somewhere in combined mode. It bugs me that there's no proper place in hand mode for Scrapmetal's little panel.

RotF Stratosphere came with one that seems like it'd probably be about the right scale, so you might want to check ebay or something?

Of course Scavenger is mistransformed in those stock images. The big wheels are supported by both struts each in the test shot and previous stock image:

If you look at how he is packaged, I can totally see the photographer taking one out of the box, turning the upper wheel 90 degrees and snapping away for bot mode.

Except that that's Demolishor, not Scavenger.

It's Demolishor who should come with a mini-Optimus.

Because it was Scavenger who formed Devastator's torso in the movie. Demolishor was the white one who got killed in Shanghai near the beginning of the movie.

This is Scavenger (in the middle):

And this is Demolishor:

It doesn't help that the original RotF red toy was called Demolishor, who was later redecoed in white. Outside of Legends Class, Scavenger never had a transforming figure... officially that is.

I scored KSI Boss and....honestly, I want to love him because the paint is so engrossing but I don't think I love him.

I feel like I've been spoiled by the new SS and the new Siege products because this is just a little touch of the old with KSI, or Kissy as he's unfortunately intuitively nicknamed. Like this engineering to me feels like the step from where Transformers were before last year to where they are now. He's almost to where the current SS series and Siege figures are buuuuut...just a hair off. Not quite there. It makes me appreciate where the toys are now that much more.

Honestly, and I feel like I can be such a stickler...but it's the lack of ankle tilts that really gets me. It takes away so much dynamic posing. And with that paint that pops and the guns every where you want to get a cool saddle stance going on and a waist tilt but you don't get that here.

It's just a little thing but I've always been a stickler for little details like that. This is one that no pun intended gives the whole toy a poor foot to stand on for me.

Otherwise his guns are awesome and the jet mode looks pretty good. I love the paint and the look I mean he does look like he could be a knight-version-Gundam-type-robot. He just looks like a cool all around emotionless robot that could level the population of an average sized world.

His crotch won't stay pegged together (that's what someone said) which is super frustrating because it doesn't take much handling for his crotch to fall apart (also, said, person, order, not that in).

But I've again got to give it positive points for the transformation design because you just don't see that flipping of limbs in quite that way every day. It's definitely unique and sweet Christmas is he ever heavily armed. The cycloptic eye looks great and I love the versatility with the TR gimmick. The cockpit even fits a Titanmaster that's awesome.

All in all though, I think it's a solid $30 I would have rather saved for Thundercracker. Two out of five gravestars. This one might need to go back and find a better forever home than he'll find here.

The lack of ankle rockers on that mold is a pity. I have to say that aside from that I love my Thundercracker, enough that if they did the mold as Skywarp I'd buy it (though I'd rather Skywarp was a different mold to satisfy my "all the Seekers are different" idea).

Got the SS Leader Prime this past week, and I love it. There's some obvious complaints, the lack of paint on the weapons and the hollow parts on the wings are kind of annoying, but it's far and away the best version of the SS Voyager Prime mold. The orange fade at the front of the truck really makes it pop, the silver "abs" really compliment the robot mode well, and even with the lack of paint, having so many accessories makes for all sorts of fun poses and playability.

Currently have him next to my DOTM voyager Megatron and Shockwave, and they all look great together, which is a nice bonus, I never got any of the DOTM versions of Optimus from that line because I thought they all looked like garbage and/or didn't scale right with the other figures. May have to find a DOTM voyager Sentinel Prime to go with them all and recreate that final battle.

I ordered SS Shatter and the new car form of Dropkick off Amazon, hopefully I get one of the better versions of Shatter. Dropkick looks like a massive improvement in robot mode, although I'll probably still keep the first version around because I love the way the helicopter mode looks.

My feelings exactly when I got Studio series Thundercracker...same mold and everything. Good toy, awesome even...but not as awesome as proper Studio series toys. Still, KSI would make a good Nitro Zeus!

I’m such a dork I should have specified Siege Thundercracker he’s who I’ve been kind of pining for :lol: I do like this mold! So many weapons and the TR gimmick but it’s just 90% there. You know if he’d been a TR figure he would have been like thee best TR figure.

Technically, it was Nitro Zeus first, although the head doesn't really match him or KSI Boss.

https://tfwiki.net/wiki/Nitro_Zeus#Toys

Anyone know if any 3rd party ever made a better head for him or KSI Boss that better matches their on-screen appearances? Seems like it would be a no-brainer there, but I've never seen anything.
