While we knew these were coming through a list of rumours from reputable sources, we now have the product listings from Walmart for the three leader class Transformers toys coming out in the Studio Series line. They are 86 Snarl, ROTB Scourge and ROTB Primal. Remember, these are meant to be in scale and Primal should be the same size as Prime in this rendition, so expect him to be similarly sized as the previous Studio Series Optimus Primes with some additional accessories. We do not know how much bigger Scourge will be yet. As for Snarl, well now you can recreate your favourite 3 shots from the movie when he appears. The names of the two ROTB bots are coded in the listings but we've known which characters the codes refer to for a while now.

We thank JTPrime17 for the news.

He's a Voyager in name only, he's actually the size of a Core because of that ridiculous parts count. :lol:

I'm glad to see the big bots of the next movie are going to hit Leader class. Can't even begin to imagine how they'll get Primal up to that price point. Extra stuff aside he isn't a figure that traditionally requires a high parts count or complex transformation and what we've seen of the character in other toys and art it doesn't seem like anything has really changed. Maybe whatever the McGuffin they're after gives him a temporary upgrade that can be snapped on.

And we can finally put that false but still perpetuated rumor (started by PvP) about Snarl being a Voyager to rest for good now, right?

Originally, but in one of PvP's videos he baselessly said Snarl was also a Voyager which was then repeated as a legit rumor including on these forums a few times.

Hadn't seen this before, found it on Mandarake. Takara Tomy is already moving their wave 29 (Wheeljack, Brawn and Sweep) over to windowless boxes, I suspect Hasbro will be doing the same by the end of the year or next year. Wheeljack is the only one I've seen, but I assume Brawn is also this way, not sure about Sweep.

Yes, but the use of "Nest" is why we're all guessing it has something to do with the recent NEST Bumblebee and Universal Studios. Even if it didn't say Bumblebee we'd probably still draw the same conclusion.

Emerje


I thought SS BB could refer to a studio series figure of a character from the Bumblebee movie.
Wouldn't it be listed as "TF6", then, like the other Bumblebee movie character toys?


Yeah, your right.

They recolored the 2007 render for the boxart right? Although the figure is clearly Bumblebee's DOTM body. Love the little living room used as a "backdrop".

On September last year, we gave you a preliminary list of case assortments for 2022's Transformers Studio Series line. You ca find it HERE. While wave assortments slightly changed for which figures would get repacked, it gives us a good idea of what is left to be seen in 2022. One of those was core class Laserbeak. Many assumed it would be a robotic bird of some kind, as we saw in the films, but no. Instead it turns out to be based on when Laserbeak turned into a pink Bumblebee toy. Takara already released a deluxe commemorating that moment and now we have a core class figure. This is, as written in the title, just a redeco of a core class Bumblebee toy that is released first. We had quite a few "Pre-Decos" back in Titans Return but we had not seen on in a while.

If you are wondering, the other SS core class figures yet to be seen are 86 Rumble and Wheelie.

Thanks to JTPrime17, we now have multiple new listings for the 2023 Studio Series line. They include beasts in various sizes and more Bumblebee. Along with a coded character we don't know of yet, Appolo. We also have a non ROTB Bumblebee, which is labelled as WFC within Studio series. It will take time to see how this all plays out but now we have more of an idea of what is coming out next year.

TRA Gen Studio Series VOY TF7 Butch (Cheetor)

TRA Gen Studio Series VOY TF7 Appolo

TRA Gen Studio Series DLX TF7 George (Bumblebee)

For reference:

Wish the Core class was that shade of pink and not magenta, but it's a good looking figure regardless. Not crazy about the weapon, wish it covered his hand. Also looks like it splits in half for some reason?

It's interesting that they're using the "Apollo" code name again, they last used it for Age of Extinction for Dinobot Slash. I wonder who it could possibly be this time around? As far as we know BW Dinobot isn't in this movie, certainly not Slash.

Many code names are being reused this time around, from previous code series, like George.

You know, a reissue of the VW mold would make a whole lot of sense since that figure was previously sold in the Netflix line, whose actual proper name was "Transformers: War For Cybertron Trilogy". It would explain how and why there is a "WFC" in the listing if it's supposed to be a Studio Series release, in that it would be a toy originally first released in the "War For Cybertron Trilogy" toyline and of a character from one of the theatrically-released feature films.

...well I said I would have to get Laserbeak if it did turn out to be Murderbee, so that's happening.

I'm guessing Apollo is gonna be that tow truck Battletrap, since I believe he was the only RotB cast member that hasn't appeared with a codename in the RotB stuff we've seen before now?

...WFC Bee could easily be related to the recent WFC and be boring, yeah...but JTPrime speculated when the listing was discovered that maybe the Studio Series WFC Bee is as such because it's based off the High Moon Studios WFC game, and that's probably not likely...but I can't get the thought out of my head now.

I hope if it's Battletrap he has a nice bot mode because I could really go for a new Longarm figure.

You know, it probably wouldn't take much to retool Bee movie Cybertronian Bee into WFC game Bee.

Nice to know they will be doing Leader Snarl, and hopefully not at Voyager size ;). I thought he would be last and that they'd do Swoop as the next release, since he had a lot more screen time in the movie than Snarl (blink and you'll miss him).

I'll be curious to see if they do anything with the tail by way of articulation. The one thing that always bugged me was how inflexible the tail was, when it was supposed to be Snarl's primary weapon.

My thoughts as well. The big hurdle there is his robot mode. If it was a straight rerelease, it would have to go under the SS86 line, since G1 Bee and Bayverse Bee are different. I thought maybe it could be another shot at Bee from the Bee movie itself, but that wouldn't work. Besides, even for his short screen time, Bee was an important character in TF:TM, he should be represented in the line.

That's wave 3 of studio series 2022 coming in exactly as the 3rd quarter starts.

By comparison, I am so far behind locally that I bought my wave 1 deluxes on Pulse during that sale and can finally join in on the conversation regarding those.

That SS BB Ratchet toy really surprised me. While I wasn't sure at first since parts of the alt mode looked off, I just fell in love with the transformation. The team at Hasbro really went out of their way for this ratchet toy, giving us very different looking modes from robot to cybertronian vehicle that bring new details to each mode while also using the same parts in new ways. It really is my perfect type of transformer.

While I don't like the robot mode aesthetic of the Bumblebee movie cast, the Studio Series toys really show off, to me, what the design team could do if they weren't shackled by screen accuracy as they are now. These characters didn't have any alt-modes designed for the movie, so the toy design team had to come up with some. Aesthetic preferences aside, Arcee, Wheeljack, Ratchet and Brawn all look like they have very fun and interesting trasformations. I'm convinced that the outstandingly fun transformations the toys based on the cybertron scene have are in no small part a consequence of the design team actually getting to choose at least one of the modes for once. Not being beholden to someone else's idea of what at least one of the modes should look like means they get to cut loose with the transformation and make sure it's a fun toy first, a small replica second.

This is the stuff we miss out on when the pipeline is media design first, then toy design. That's why so much people like the ancillary bots from 2007, RotF and Hunt for the Decepticons so much more than the ones representing guys who were actually on screen. It's also why Animated is top notch: there was active communication between media designers and toy designers, so it hit a very special sweet spot that neither toy-first nor media-first approaches can hit.

...the alt modes are definitely similar, but they practically have inverted proportions compared to each other in bot mode, so a new mold would probably work better. Plus the Cliffjumper repaint-with-new-head option still exists to give the mold reuse, if this is what's happening and that would be a concern.

I can't believe we've reached the point where I'm actively in favor of yet another new SS Bumblebee mold

With that logic, we could even extend it to TV series, too, as those are also made by studios. Hasbro's production company Allspark was even originally named Hasbro Studios, and one subsidiary is named Boulder Media Studio. Lots more studios to pick from as well.

Maybe Studio Series is evolving the same way the Masters of the Universe Masterverse is. It started as a line for the Revalations series, now it has incorporated the CGI series, the original series (for the 40th anniversary) and even figures based on tweaked concept art.

I'm not against a catch all Generations Transformers line that's outside the current themed main line. They're quickly hitting the wall for movie figures they haven't already made (sometimes multiple times) so letting it evolve isn't such a bad idea.

Except, Legacy is pretty much a catch all Generations Transformers line too, picking from all over the brand's history and media for whatever toys it wants to include. Studio Series going to same route would make the two line pretty indistinguishable from each other beyond one still making some toys based on the live action movies and one that doesn't, at which point they might as well just be the same line.

With that logic, we could even extend it to TV series, too, as those are also made by studios. Hasbro's production company Allspark was even originally named Hasbro Studios, and one subsidiary is named Boulder Media Studio. Lots more studios to pick from as well.

Maybe Studio Series is evolving the same way the Masters of the Universe Masterverse is. It started as a line for the Revalations series, now it has incorporated the CGI series, the original series (for the 40th anniversary) and even figures based on tweaked concept art.

You're thinking short term, I'm thinking long term. That's what Legacy is right now (if you pretend Prime Universe isn't in it), in 2024 the line that takes that slot could literally be anything. Besides, Kingdom and SS86 were nearly indistinguishable from each other, we have the Jazz and Cliffjumper repaints and retools to prove it, and they coexisted.

As did the Netflix line and now the Speedia line

You really made me hunt for this reply... :-P

Not sure what you mean by the Netflix line since that line barely incorporated anyone that wasn't G1 (Beast Wars is arguably still G1). The Volocitron line is considered an offshoot of Legacy rather than its own thing.

Metroplex... simply isn't Metroplex, is a different character. I still ask myself why, when figures get bigger, alt modes look weird and lame.

Thundercracker is great.

Seems like you've never seen the pictures of Cybertron Metroplex's alt mode, as it is a very real thing (it's also gigantic) also if the name bothers you, just call him by his Japanese Galaxy Force name ;)^



All movie designs are ugly
Metroplex is cool I guess...
I beleive his Japanese name is Megalo Convoy (Megalo Convoy for me, I guess)
Hilariously, his Korean name is "Super Metroplex"

I had tickets to the rerelease of the 2007 movie today (which I was super excited about because I never actually got to see it's original run in theaters), but my family got COVID so I'm in quarantine for a while. Instead, here's my 2007 Studio Series Autobot cast!

All these figures are great, I'm so glad to have them!

Oh man, that's such bad luck. I hope your family gets better soon and that you can finish isolation in time to see the re-release.

Your custom paintjobs look stunning, as usual. They'd look awesome displayed in front of a background that evokes the alleyway where they first meet Sam!
