Hot on the tails of the new WFC SIEGE product reveals that will be showed off at Toy Fair 2019, we have two Studio Series figures that'll be showed off, Studio Series Voyager Class Optimus Prime (from the Bumblebee film), which we've seen before through unofficial means, and Studio Series Deluxe Class Dropkick, the car mode version, which we've never seen before.

Thanks to IGN, we have some great stock renders of the two figures. The article also says Optimus will hit retail on April 1st, while Dropkick will go up on August 1st. Interestingly, despite being listed at a Studio Series Deluxe price point and size, IGN calls it a Voyager Class figure.

Check out the images below, as well as IGN's descriptions, and tell us your thoughts in the Pub forums below!

The Transformers: Studio Series line is getting two new additions by way of Dropkick and Optimus Prime, both based on the character models from last year's Bumblebee movie.

Optimus Prime, Autobot leader and easily the most iconic of all the Transformers across all media, is due to arrive April 1 with a retail price of $29.99 USD. Dropkick, definitely a less well-known member of the Decepticons, but still a notable figure, is scheduled to hit retailers August 1 for $19.99.

The Studio Series Optimus Prime features "vivid, movie-inspired deco and detailed hand blasters," and transforms from truck to robot in 35 steps. Optimus stands 6.5 inches and comes with a backdrop of the "San Francisco Bridge scene" in Bumblebee.

Dropkick stands 4.5 inches tall when in robot mode and transforms into car mode in 36 steps. Unlike the movie version, the Studio Series 46 Voyager Class Dropkick is not a triple-changer. You can still buy the Studio Series 22 Deluxe Class Dropkick to turn from robot to helicopter, completing the possible transformation set.

Hasbro said the figures will be "available on HasbroPulse.com and other major retailers" at launch, which means these particular figures won't be retail-exclusives like the entire line of Vintage G1 Transformers, which could only be purchased through Walmart.

Love the new Dropkick, which means a studio series jet Shatter won't be too far behind, though helicopter Dropkick does suffer next to this one as they don't look alike at all

Oh, actually noticed the Voyager part. Nah, he's a deluxe, because his price point is 19.99 and he stands at 4.5 inches tall

It's written in the write up, at the part saying it completes a transformation set with the helicopter Dropkick.

Apparently someone forgot to change that from the template: the $19.99 is still Deluxe Class.

Is it just me or does Dropkick look like a Bumblebee retool?

Okay, well... these stock photos aren't great, that Optimus has looked better than it does here I think every other time we've seen it. I'm still sticking with my decision to get the Siege Leader Prime over this guy, but it does look like an amazing figure and I am glad it exists.

As for Dropkick...look, I know a lot of people said that copter Dropkick was too skinny, but this Dropkick looks too bulky and unwieldy to me. Giving him a whole front half of a car for his chest G1-style is NOT a good look for him, in my opinion, and it looks like he's similarly going to have a really basic transformation to go with it. I actually like my copter Dropkick, so unless this looks significantly better in hand or I'm wrong about how he transforms, the only reason whatsoever I would have to get him is his gun (which does look really good/screen-accurate). Easy pass, I hope they show more SS stuff at Toy Fair than just these two. For example, you could answer this:

as I too would like to know.

Also I wanted Dropkick to have green paint decals on his face to make it look like when he talks, missed opportunity

So we have 2 deluxe dropkicks in a series all about screen accuracy and none of them look like what he looks in the film?

The second one looks closer to his pre-triplechanger form when they first arrive on Earth

And at long last, Dropkick is done justice. That is the proper coloring and the best of his 2 alt modes. Well done!

Prime looks a bit funky, but still somewhat good.

The Dropkick figure is technically movie accurate since initially he just has the car mode and only gets the chopter mode later (same goes for Shatter to an extent)


Expecting the toys to look exactly like the film designs is ridiculous especially with the way those two were with the Triple Changer stuff.

Day 2 of Studio Series deluxe reviews. This time: Sideswipe.

So, Sideswipe is one of my favorite movie Autobots/Transformers period, and I am thrilled he got a new toy. And this one is certainly pretty darn good.

for one thing, the alt mode is pretty much faultless. Few Transformers can actually pull off a proper looking convertible, and yet here he does!

The transformation is fun and intuitive as well. Homages the OG deluxe a lot in the arms, chest, and trunk kibble, but adds some new things, like optional swords and also the adjustable chest pieces. I love that they can move around and adjust. I also like how the legs work a bit differently from past iterations as well.

Robot mode is pretty grand. I wish he had some more silver, but dang can he move! And with the optional swords and guns, the ability to store all of them, and the fact that his fender pieces make him really stable with poses, he is a joy to play with. I love this figure, overall the best of the wave in terms of deluxe quality. Until a MPM comes along, I think this can be a definitive Sideswipe for any movie collection
