Amazon.ca has new preorders up for the Transformers Studio Series line. These are all toys that have yet to hit Canadian retail but some are toys that have also yet to hit US retail and some even global retail,such as the upcoming new Bumblebee deluxe that is rumoured to be in the Volkswagon body seen in the Bumblebee movie. All these preorder listings give us some dates which give us an idea of when these toys will be made (more) available at retail. As will be seen, some of these toys have already been released in the US so these dates are more of an aproximation.

Voyager Ironhide has a release date of September 1, 2018

Voyager Brawl and Megatron have a release date of July 1st, 2018

New Deluxe Bumblebee has release date of September 24, 2018

Please remember that the Bumblebee movie's deluxe and voyager toys (if any) are part of the Studio Series line and not part of its own movie line so this means that we would probably be getting the delayed Bumblebee movie toys starting end September. That is of course if this Bumblebee toy is for the new film or if it is simply Bee in another body he has had throughout the live action movie franchise.

Incidentally these are the same dates from the "big leak" which also had the 4/20 wave one street date correct so Bee's date is probably accurate as well.

I got hold of a Voyager Optimus today, and he isn't a bad figure at all. The first thing that really stuck out to me was that the transformation, especially the arms and chest windows, is quite similar to the Transformers Prime First Edition Optimus, so I got some warm and fuzzy nostalgia for that toy while I was transforming him. The only tiny nitpick I have are the vehicle's smoke stacks are too short, they should be about half an inch longer.

The shortened stacks are due to a combination of safety regs and the simplified engineering.
You could drill them open and cut a notch for a slide lever, and get some stiff rubber tubing or w/e that fits inside, stick it in, glue a piece of scrap styrene on as the lever, and cut it to length.

Some new English reviews of SS Ironhide are creeping up. Have Emgo's:

And there's only four Transformers in the Bumblebee movie: Bee himself and three Decepticons, who are a jet and two cars.

I'm pretty sure Bee himself will have at least 2 toys. Let's hope for radically different molds.

I need SS Ironhide in my life now. The head sculpt and cannons are perfect, and the proportions are spot-on, it just looks SO good. The bumper's a little out of place, but I think if it's painted to be a much darker gray it should look better. He's out of scale in vehicle mode, but that's what HFTD Ironhide is for! ;)^

Yeah,even if there are fewer characters,I dont think there will be only one option for each.

I doubt that. They are part of a line filled with other characters not related to the film because there are so few toys from the film. Hasbro does the same thing with the marvel films for Marvel ELgends. There is only 1 toy of Ant Man or the Wasp in the marvel legends line available at wide retail.

There might be more than 1 bumblebee, bu I dont expect multiples of other characters.

Finally got around to taking those photos. First, the group shots:

"Sandstorm", as I have named the desert colors Brawl, is in the process of being repaired with parts from a regular Deluxe Brawl that I made a bad attempt at repainting then scrapped for parts.
Dirge is under restoration following half-assed and ill-conceived customizing attempt

And now the solo(ish) shots:

Got Brawl, he's awesome, love him a ton, he's just so, well realized, it's great.

Got megs too, the hollow torso bugs me as much as I figured it would. Shame too, as the panels on his feet coulda been stuck to ball joints on his back and used to hide the torso gap since they are unnecessary to support his weight on his feet :(

There's a few problems with that idea:
1. The panels are formed from parts of his tread cowlings, so they wouldn't have been able to go in their proper place in vehicle mode if mounted to his back (especially if it was just with ball joints)
2. The panels wouldn't really make good covers for the torso gaps because they don't match the "alien ribcage" look of his torso
3. Those panels, while not necessary to support his weight, are approximations of panels present on his feet there in the actual movie design (you can get a good look at that on Josh Nizzi's website).

I've been on-off obsessively researching Megatron's ROTF design for a while now, in preparation for customizing the ROTF Leader-class toy whenever I finally got my hands on it.

Finally finished cleaning my apartment and moving bots around. I could not get satisfied with the layout, and finally am.

In the process, this is how my movie display, including Bee and Ratchet, ended up. Several movie guys are elsewhere in alt mode (including final battle Jazz, see below), but with the exception of Jazz (when I get his SS figure he'll go here) every movie character minus the Dinobots and Knights (a shelf all to themselves) and the Arcees (those toys looked crud, so no) is represented. And I think it works.

Ratchet still feels a bit too small there, and Bee also a bit small, but overall not bad.

I still love the 2007 Arcee figure. One of my fave TFs ever. But she's now waaaay too big for my movie shelf scale, at least in bike mode since Jazz and Bee can probably ride her (not in rude way)
