We have what might be some pretty huge news. Fellow Seibertronian JTPRime17 has found a Walmart listing for Transformers Generations Studio Series Leader 86 Grimlck Whe. Now, the Studio Series line was always labeled in the system as part of Generations so that fits, but the big deal here is what comes next which is what seems to be a shortened version of Leader class Grimlock + Wheelie from the 86 Transformers film. Walmart listings have yet to be wrong so we can only assume this means the Studio Series line is branching out into bringing us figures from the 86 Transformers film. The pairing of Grimlock and Wheelie makes lots of sense since that's where they became friends.

This is potentially huge news since it could mean you would be getting more Generation 1 toys with the screen accurate detail and complexity found in the Studio Series line. And us having a listing now means this could be coming within the next year. You'll let us know if the idea of getting another set of G1 seekers in Generations scale interests you or not, though (joking aside) the idea of getting Grimlock here hopes to suggest we'd be getting characters that were more prominant in the film, like Hot Rod, Galvatron, Cyclonus and others. Let us know what you hope this means.

If anyone is curious in finding this listing themselves, all you need to do is run Bluestacks on a PC, put Walmart app on it, and type UPC into price checker.

Heh, even the movieverse-oriented Studio Series isn't safe from GEEWUN. :P

This just feels bizarre, especially since the WFC trilogy has already gone to earth.

Perhaps this explains Sleep Mode Optimus?

At least that was a design from one of the live action films of the 2000s-2010s, complete with their signature greeble and tech detail, rather than from an animated film of the 1980s.

I feel like there's a lot of possibilities for what this listing actually is, maybe a G1 repaint of SS Grimlock?

That admittedly wouldn't make much sense, but I guess it's possible. I really doubt that, if it is an actual G1 Grimlock, that it would be mixed in with normal SS stuff - maybe a separate line that just shares the "studio series" title, kinda like how WFC and SS are both grouped into generations but still separate lines.

Guess we'll have to wait and see!

Maybe that sleep mode Optimus is a Studio Series exclusive!!!

i dont get it, why have SS G1 movie figures when there are the war for cybertron trilogy generations figures
and anymore articulated and detailed there is masterpiece, is this just another marketing scheme to get us to by the same figures over again like with the Netflix series figures?
i think there is more to this i hope
then again if they did figures that need the SS treatment i would hope for Galvatron Cyclonus and Scourge

Isn’t a G1 Film toyline just called...Generations?

Technically, Studio Series is part of the Generations label, just another branch of it like how Siege/Earthrise is.

While I would love for the insanity that would be AoE Grimlock in G1 colours, packaged with G1 coloured Wheelie from the DoTM Shockwave figure, I'm not sure it's a good idea bringing G1 into studio series. I saw nothing wrong in having the lines having their own identities. There was still enough characters left without having to worry about the lines future

I could see some zany stuff coming from this endeavor; I guess this is the only logical outcome if hasbro wants to continue the line, but are admittedly running out of new figures to fill out a whole year. Maybe this adds credibility to the devastator boxset being g1 colors. On the other hand, maybe this will be a special sub-line like the netflix line for walmart?

Not gonna lie, if Studio Series gets absorbed and assimilated by GEEWUN I'm going to laugh in a very 'watch the world burn' kind of way.

Save me a spot.


If "Whe" isn't a shortened version of Wheelie, then what else could it be?

Most likely this will end up as a twin pack of Grimlock with Wheelie from The Last Knight, perhaps in G1 colours or perhaps even as the 86th figure in the line. That's my guess, anyway.

Given that Arcee, Quintessons, Ultra Magnus, Alicons, AND Springer were in the main Generations line I tend to think this would be a G1 colored SS Grimlock with a G1 colored SS Wheelie. Which ... I might get, TBH. May go well with the G1 colored Dinobots I already have. Saying that, I alreadu have two of the three G1 colored movie Grimlocks and both are in storage, so maybe not.

It just seems more likely than the Studio Series competing with new molds for the same characters.

Ugh, I hope it's just a G1 themed repaint.

Wait there were 3 movie grimlocks in G1 colours? I can only think of 2 for some reason, were they all from that aoe voyager mold?

If third party stuff partially having character choices that are made to beat Hasbro to market is still a thing, then I can't wait for all the weird Junkions to happen. Arblus, weird Quintessa fish, plenty of interesting stuff to do if this is what it seems like.
