Greetings Seibertronians! Thanks to fellow Seibertron user, EvasionModeBumblebee, we've learned that YouTuber TonTon Reviews has uploaded a brand new review of Studio Series #51 Deluxe Class DotM Soundwave! This new mould represents Soundwave as he appeared in the third Transformers live action movie, Dark of the Moon. He also comes with a small to scale figure of Lazerbeak.

The review goes through the basics of articulation, and a closer look at the two modes.

We have embedded the video below for your convenience.



What do you think of the review? Will you be adding this release to your shelves? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

he doesn't transform the chest all the way. the headlight portions are supposed to flip all the war around to make his more movie accurate look

Next deluxe wave is shaping up nicely! I'm excited for the new movie guys next year

As a big Shockwave fan maaaan, I’m thinking I might need to get the SS version. I wasn’t huge on the design originally but seeing it in toy form I have a different perspective on it. It just feels cooler somehow. And I didn’t get the prior mold he’s based on so he’d be totally new to me I wouldn’t have that hang up.

Plus, little robots and mens for bots to trample or play kickball with and whatnot. That’s hard to pass up.

I want him too! Shockwave is one of my favourite Transformer designs regardless of era, I don't think there's ever been a bad looking Shockwave toy. I already have the DOTM Voyager and he's aged very gracefully so I'll be keeping him, but one can never have too much Shockwave.

A shame it's most likely impossible to get a Driller but I don't realistically see how that could be even be done.

Lazerbreak? Interesting. He says "beak" in the video, but the thumbnail and title text both say "break." Some sort of auto-correct thing?

OPTIMUS IS HERE! :michaelbay:

A DOTM Optimus with the jetpack is probably the thing I've wanted from Transformers since 2011 with DOTM (my favorite movie and favorite look for Optimus). There was the ultimate Optimus (which was really only accurate in vehicle mode), and there was the remold of the ROTF leader with the jetpack (which was cool, but I never got a hold of it), but there was no really good representation of DOTM Optimus.

Until now.

Prime5.jpg


It's late news at this point, but because I skipped SS-32 I didn't realize until now just how much remolding there was between this and SS-05. SS-05 was really fun, but was inaccurate in a lot of ways. This new Optimus retains all the fun of that mold but upgrades it into the most accurate voyager Optimus we've ever gotten (Battle Blades does win in the vehicle mode category, but I'd give literally every other category to this mold. Transformation, stability, fun, robot mode accuracy, all of it.).
Prime4.jpg

With the exception of the shield, the weapons are decently scaled, and I can't believe they included as many of them as they did. I thought the axe was too small at first, but looking at screenshots of it next to Megatron's head it doesn't seem too off. The weapons stand is an awesome bonus, and if you combine it with the jetpack as the base it helps fill it out and make it look closer to the movie.
Prime3.jpg

Can we talk about the gold fade for a second? It's a really important paint app that's been long-neglected by movie Primes (even the MPM to an extent), and I'm super glad they included it here. It helps solidify this Optimus that much more as my definitive Optimus Prime.
Prime1.jpg

I'm super excited to get to painting Prime up (keep an eye on the customs forum around Christmas!), but in the meantime I packed a small upgrade kit a couple months ago to add to the figure. I included SS-05's legs (which are actually just a little bit shorter than the legs that come with the figure but have the folding pieces that really help), some smokestacks (although SS-32/44s smokestack stubs are actually wider than the ones on SS-05, so I'll have to find a new alternative later this year), and a painted up Tribarrel gun from Shapeways that helps complete the look! The silver windows surprised me - I'm not a big fan of the silver windows in vehicle mode (I'll be painting them gloss black later) - But I actually like them in robot mode.

(I'll bet the reason they didn't include a tribarrel gun with this prime is because they're saving it for an SS Evasion Mode Prime down the road)

Anyways, DOTM Optimus is without a doubt in my top 4 Studio Series figures (along with Ironhide, Starscream, and 76 Camaro Bumblebee), and may possibly be my favorite of the line so far! It's everything I've wanted since 2011, and it was worth the wait.


. . . Now I just need a Shockwave for him to fight!

Very nice review, and glad you are enjoying him! He is a fantastic figure, worth the leader price point

Fellow Seibertronians! Thanks to Walmart.com, we now have some very interesting listings from Walmart for what appears to be the next lineup for the Transformers Studio Series line in 2020! Among these listings appears to be confirmation of a Deluxe Class Roadbuster, the Wrecker from Dark Of The Moon, Leader Class Overload, the articulated dump truck Constructicon from Revenge Of The Fallen, and Deluxe Class Jet Mode Shatter and Jeep Mode Bumblebee, both of whom are from the Bumblebee movie, all of which are sure to please a few of you. The listing links have been mirrored below for your convenience.

Deluxe Class Roadbuster

Deluxe Class Jet Mode Shatter

Deluxe Class Jeep Mode Bumblebee

Leader Class Overload

Hopefully, we'll get official reveals of these hot bots soon, perhaps even at the upcoming conventions later this month.

So, what're your thoughts on these reveals? Will you be interested in a Jet Shatter? Could Bumblejeep mean the soon arrival of a new Starscream Blitzwing figure? Tell us your thoughts in the discussion below, and as always, keep your audio receptors tuned for the latest in Seibertron news!

Shatter and Dropkick are really alluring now. Now all we need is a Blitzwing.

How much you wanna bet Roadbuster will be the armed up version to get around licensing? :lol:

I'm already selling a third of my collection, might as well add the old deluxe roadbuster to that list.

A) super happy we are finishing off the Bee triple changer alt mode collection. hopefully this Shatter is far better as a Transformer than her first toy.

B) Bumblejeep! Now we only truly need a Blitzwing! Maybe he will be Scrapper's wave mate.

C) Overload we knew was coming. I am ready to see my Devastator already!

D) WREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEECKERSSSSSSSSSSSS!!! I knew it was only a matter of time. Now we just need a heavily weaponized Roadbuster followed by Leadfoot and Topspin! Topspin is low priority since he got a great figure originally, but i still want all 3

Roadbuster would be neat to have after how bland the DOTM Deluxe was. Overload better be worth the price point. Jet Shatter must come with better articulation and a more accurate head in order to beat the Deluxe. Bumblejeep would be neat, but once he's done, do Blitzwing and avoid doing the Beewun cast. Most of them already got Siege/Earthrise toys.

Was anyone else aware that we were getting TWO Leader class figures in the Constructicons? I'm very curious to see Overload's robot mode.

Agreed on both accounts, but seeing as how Scavenger was done, I have high hopes that Overload will be just as good, if not better. Also more Wreckers please!

Well, it doesn't take much to beat her first Deluxe :twisted:

Come on, you know you still want them ;)

Oh yeah, it was teased some time ago. 2 leaders, 4 voyagers, 2 deluxes

I'm really excited to see Overload's bot mode, I REALLY hope they go with a weird design.

Roadbuster is a definite buy, really excited to see how it looks! Jeep Bee is pretty cool, I'm wondering how that turns out.

Since we'll probably be getting 2 voyagers for this wave and Scrapper is one of them, who do we think the other Voyager is, maybe Blitzwing?

It'd be hard to out-weird Hightower.

That's true, but that's also what gives me hope. I'm really hoping for that 6-leg design, rather than the two leg one (or worse, the normal looking one used in the legends figure).
