Thanks to a tip off from fellow Seibertron users, MadProject, Riley Hoffman and Bacem, we've learned that YouTuber TonTon Reviews has reviewed the next piece of Studio Series Devesator! Studio Series #42 Revenge of the Fallen Voyager Long Haul!

Check out his review to see every facet of this figure looked over and compared to his previous release in the Revenge of the Fallen toyline (where again he was released as a voyager but did not combine with his fellows)

We have embedded the video below for your convenience:



What do you think of the review? Are you building towards your own Devesator already? Or has Long Haul convinced you that you need to start construction on a bigger display shelf? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

I know it may sound harsh, but I posted the news first on page 211, last post of the page.
Also, I know it's not a race about how many news credits we get, but it would be nice to get recognized when I'm the first posting a news.

My apologies, you were ghosted (my term for last post on page syndrome). It seems like all three of you were very close in time sending this in! I'll amend the story now, thank you and my apologies again :D

He did not. Posting it on the boards in no way guarantees the news crew will see it, news must be submitted.

Fair enough, the distribution has gone so far off the rails even in the US, I guess this stuff could just already be at retail over there :HEADHURTS: :HEADHURTS: :HEADHURTS:

Truth be told, I am a bit worried about the ankle joints formed by Rampage and Long Haul. Are they as sturdy as CW Devastator's?

Having rampage, the ankle tilt is really tight, the other one is a friction joint, but if you transform it as shown, the weight actually sits on the solid blade/bulk of the body, which is one piece pretty much; beyond that, I dunno, I don't think devs is gonna have great articulation, unless they saved the shoulders and thighs for last to see how heavy the joints will have to be to hold up the heavy limbs :-?

Depends on where you are in the US. The big problem is that stuff may be on the shelf at one store, but nowhere to be found at the next store. A country as big as the United States isn't always going to have every location stocking things consistently. Even in my small town, you can have completely different results depending on which store you go to. One Target on my side of town is pretty good with Voyagers and Leaders,but is awful with stocking Deluxes and smaller classes. The store on the other side of town, on the other hand, is completely hit and miss.

Ah,gotcha gotcha. I see what you're saying.

Yeah,the US is definitely getting the figures. There's no doubt about that. There have already been plenty of sightings that have made it to the news.

Well, gonna go order voyager Prime and Bonecrusher tonight. My local walmart has completely removed the price tags for the voyager and leader SS figures, so only deluxes here for a while it looks like.

Long Haul looks pretty good! I'm so stoked for all these Constructicons.

I go to that Target once a week, and they weren't there last time, so they must have just come in. There are still Dropkicks and Grimlocks clogging the shelves. I have still only seen 1 DoTM Megatron and 1 Jetfire, and that was almost a month ago and nearly 40 miles away.

Intetesting. SS Grimlocks plural? I guess he is far less popular than Blackout in your area.

My area also has... groups of Grimlocks left behind, in both Targets and Walmarts. Guess he wasn't colorful enough or too dark for the kids. :lol: On the plus side, my local Walmart has put multiple cases of Jetfire and DotM Megatron on the shelf, with excess on the top. Also, that one hasn't removed the SS Voyager tags (yet), but instead added "This item is out of stock".

My biggest issue was a lot of e-tailers were missing the wave 2-3 pre orders. A lot of the ones that were reflected on Pulse were mirrored elsewhere... but for the longest time no listings of Scrap Metal, or Shatter existed; at least outside of ordering cases/wave sets from Entertainment Earth. It seems they finally hit the websites when I finally found them in California. But man... it really had me worried this would be a "lost wave". Guess Hasbro was so excited for the *upcoming* stuff they forget about the *new* stuff right around the corner.

Anyone else with Studio Jetfire have these "yellow spots"? At first I thought it was a misprint run with mine (and the other I found @ Target) but now I see they're in the official pics on Pulse...

Does everyone else who has Jetfire also have these spots? They seem *really* out of place.

Yeah, my only brick and mortar source of Leader figures that I actually shop from has a handful of Grimlocks versus maybe one Blackout. I think another factor attributing to this is probably the fact that we've gotten multiple movie Grimlocks in the last two movie lines back-to-back and his base design hasn't changed, so at least a lot of the younger fans will probably already have a figure of that Grimlock in some form and are therefore less likely to pick him up/convince a parent to pick him up for them from this line. At least characters like Optimus/Megatron/Bumblebee have the advantage of different bodies to help them sell variants fans might not already have, and Blackout hasn't had a new figure in years. Comparatively, Grimlock's in a bit of a rough spot.

In other news, Hasbro Pulse finally added listings for Shatter, Scrapmetal, Cogman, and Rampage today, and they're all in stock for those who still need them.

I, too, have a lot of SS Grimlocks in my area. Though, that had always been the case since AoE. Movie Grimlock, in any form, has never sold well.

That yellow spot is an actual detail on the real SR-71, although on Jetfire it's a tad bigger than it is in real life.

Oh... so it is... but the extra spot on his foot seems *really* out of place. I'd put in an e-mail to Pulse customer service, and they passed it along... we'll see what they say. I'll keep everyone posted.

Dude, they're working off of official cg models, if the yellow spot is on the foot (which mine has as well) it's probably supposed to be there - I wouldn't be surprised if they designed him so his feet became the nose cone and the cockpit became his forehead (it's a very bay-verse thing to do).

Pretty close. Anything that Hasbro showed off at Toyfair was available for immediate pre-order on Hasbro Pulse when they launched the site. In order to not really piss off the various e-tailers, they allowed them to also open up the same figures for pre-order too. Figures that were already announced, but not available yet were left out in the cold for that round of pre-orders. The same thing happened for Siege, with Red Alert being available for pre-order, but his wavemates Brunt and Reflector are not. So it wasn't them forgetting about a wave, rather this all had to do with the launch of Hasbro Pulse.

yes thats exactly what it is. Were it not for the launch of pulse, then you would simply have gotten those new preorders 3 months later, close to release, which is what usually happens.

So I went through ROTF screenshots to see if I could find that yellow dot on Jetfire's foot (I was wondering if that was accurate or not either) - and as it turns out, he has them on both feet (you may have to zoom in).

Funny thing is, I've seen more Grimlocks than Blackouts too. And I agree, I think the movie fatigue with the Dinobots is sadly affecting this Grimlock, who is by far better than any other Grimlock we have gotten over the past many years in all lines. I feel the RiD Warrior was pretty decent but small, and the Fall of Cybertron one is one of my favorites of all time, though I understand that mold isn't really loved by many. and then there was PotP.

So sadly, the best Grimlock in recent memory is suffering from fatigue from figures that don't even come close to touching him.

Also, considering how many people love Blackout and seeing as how his last toy came out in 2008, I can understand why he flew away. Heh.

Or it could be because he's essentially a huge grey thing that most kids won't even realize is from a movie >:oP that's also $50

Eh, Blackout is also a large grey thing, just a different shade. And if one of the 2 appealed to kids, I would think a giant knight that is a dinosaur might win over a helicopter, even though kids love helicopters too

In the Twin Cities area, I can tell you that the "shelfwarming" Leader Class figure of the Studio Series is Blackout. Grimlock is a lot more rare. What's inspiring, though, is that the Shatter wave is reaching saturation pretty quickly. What's not great is that the Dropkick repacks are very obviously selling slowly. Did everyone have time to get everything they wanted from the Sideswipe and Barricade wave already? That seemed to come and go awfully fast. Same with Bonecrusher and 2007 Optimus prime. Btw, Bonecrusher is selling pretty slowly too, it seems.

So sadly, the best Grimlock in recent memory is suffering from fatigue from figures that don't even come close to touching him.

Also, considering how many people love Blackout and seeing as how his last toy came out in 2008, I can understand why he flew away. Heh.

Or it could be because he's essentially a huge grey thing that most kids won't even realize is from a movie >:oP that's also $50

Eh, Blackout is also a large grey thing, just a different shade. And if one of the 2 appealed to kids, I would think a giant knight that is a dinosaur might win over a helicopter, even though kids love helicopters too

...yeah, but it's still $50, and clearly that's not really working with people outside of the one's that specifically wanted him

I mean, it could apply to both, but, seriously, how iconic could movie grimlock be? He had all of 5 minutes of screentime and was in bot mode for about 20 seconds. Now you can argue that they could look at the back of the box and think it cool, but it's still a $50 toy, and it has a lot of competition for that money.

Down this way, I never even saw Barricade, not once! I saw Jazz twice and Ironhide 3 times, about 2 months apart each time. But car Shatter and chopper Dropkick are everywhere. Funny thing is, all this talk of Grimlock is making me think of buying him, since I don't actually have a complete movie Grimlock. I have an AoE leader that's just bare bones, he's missing all accessories. So as soon as SS Grimmy goes on sale I'll probably get him. If he does.

Right now, I'm still pulling for a leader class AoE Galvatron and a leader class DoTM Shockwave.

You'd be surprised how fast you can get reviews out when you're just using stolen figures >:oP


Or get them from the Philippines. If it can be proven beyond reasonable doubt they were stolen... >:oP

As far as I'm concerned if a reviewer isn't willing to show the box on their super early review (and why wouldn't they?) then they probably (not definitely) didn't get it through legitimate means.

Isn’t Long Haul in the same wave as DOTM Optimus? Pulse doesn’t show Prime coming into stock until September 1.

I don't understand, DOTM Optimus is leader class wave 3 while Long Haul is Voyager class wave 7

Waves in various size classes are rarely in synch for across the board.

While we’re on the topic of release dates, when are Hightower and car Dropkick planned for release?

Ah, ok. I thought they were coming out at the same time, hoping there was a chance that I get Prime earlier than Pulse’s estimate. It’ll be a long wait, but I have paint work on Ironhide and hopefully Sideswipe and Barricade to do in the meantime!
