BakuganHG1998 posted a quick review of Rise of the Beasts deluxe Airazor on TikTok. Since it's TikTok, it is very short, so no transformation. But we do get a nice 360 view of both modes. The reviewer calls out the attention to detail such as the molded feathers that end up on the robot's shins. You can also see how the weapons store in robot mode. We thank Kanrabat for giving us a heads up on this video.

"What Was Michael Bay thinking when he made the original Transformers series?"

Bay did not make the movie designs. He was not the sole person in charge of everything.

You know everyone likes to blame him for everything despite their being many, many hands in the pot. The only major script decisions people can blame on him is Revenge of the Fallen since he finished the script due to the writers strike of 08

Brett Rothe has posted a quick transformation video of Rise of the Beasts deluxe Airazor on youtube. They reached out to us directly to inform us and we thank them for the heads up. The transformation is quite ingenious since it completely removes a large chunk of the wings from the robot mode by having a part of them become the robot mode legs. This would have been a better transformation for making both Kingdom Airazor and Terrorsaur more cartoon accurate since their robot modes on the show had their wings either reduced or completely removed.

He's always been the face of those movies and he has chosen it to be that way. So I get why people keep blaming him for everything.

Now does this mean it can also be seen as him shielding everyone (even if inadvertently) from the abuse?

Nah, just as yet another example of people needing one single scapegoat to focus on because paying attention to the multiple(!), more obvious causes is so not done >:oP

It's not intentional, but we know he doesn't mind getting the blame for it. He's beyond it all as is demonstrated with him still involved with the brand and films while not shying away from letting us know.

If RoTB ends up the sub-par production I expect it to be, I won't be blaming Bay much, just a little. I think he deserves the majority of the blame for RoTF only. The other films are equally the result of everyone's efforts.

The collectible retailer site Zavvi had a banner image up which has since been taken down, promoting the new Transformers toys for Rise of the Beasts. On it we see Battletrap and Bumblebee figures. This is our first look at the new Bumblebee toy and while it seems to have a similar level of detail to previous Studio Series toys, there are two lines with movie deluxes coming out at a similar time, so it's not confirmed in which line he will be released. While we see Bumblebee in his robot mode, we can tell that his alt mode is the off road Camaro which he becomes later in the film.

There are a few newsworthy bits to take from this single picture. Firstly, the head sculpt features parts not seen on Bumblebee's head in the trailer, which include his antennas and side vents. So that means that either he had not finished transforming in the trailer, or that this face sculpt is based on an older character model.

Also, these being official renders means that their announcement is soon. Or at least, one would hope since we had renders of a new Hatchet and Hound figure for months and they are still not revealed. So we'll see.

Let us know what you think of this new toy and if you'd add it to your collection!

Hatchet still looking really nice.

BB, looks like they took Bumblebee Movie BB and mashed it up with 2007 Bay Movie BB and got this.

It looks fairly simple though.

I think this BB looks great, like a chunkier, more solid version of the regular junker Camaro we have. I'm excited to see the rally-ready alt mode.

They really need to abandon this mold, the wheels in front of the wings are so prominent you forget the doors are even there, it's so bulky and ugly and innaccurate

Oooo, that car mode looks great, I do wish the car mode had more black paint on it to break up all that yellow like the screen model. Maybe they might change the layout before release...unless we're gonna have to wait for a "Premium Finish" version!

Pulse has these for pre order now as well. Battletrap is 99, and BB is 100. I know several people here said SS100 would probably be nothing special, and you were right. I guess I was just hoping because "numbers". Oh well... 8-}

With that, we still don't know who 94, 97, and 98 are for Hasbro's SS numbers.

We thank EvasionModeBumblebee for letting us know of two new Rise of the Beasts toys being officially revealed. Through a Screenrant article we get our first official looks at Transformers Studio Series SS-99 voyager Battletrap and SS-100 deluxe Bumblebee, both for the upcoming Rise of the Beasts movie. When you remember that SS-01 is the 2007 movie 76 Camaro Bumblebee, we've come full circle with SS 100. Below are images of these two toys in both their modes. They are available for preorder wherever you prefer buying your figures online. Even on international sites like Indemand toys where they are £25 for the deluxe and £37 for the voyager.

Here are some Amazon listings if you want more info:

here's some Transformers Rise of the Beasts merchandising news for you all, there will be a whole set of Funko Pops released for the characters in the film. We have listings of those upcoming vinyl figures. What's fun is that even if you are not a fan, Funko pops often give us a better look at characters. If images get unveiled soon, it could give us a better look at Scourge.

Here are the upcoming Pops:

Lots of news dropped, all regarding toys aimed at younger Transformers fans. We have our first look at the bot mode for the upcoming Rise of the Beasts Bumblebee transforming mask from a Baidu post, as well as several new stock images for more kids' toys from e0bay seller rubyemerelite. We can see that the Dinobots Unite Cyberverse combiners are being rereleased in the Buzzworthy Bumblebee line, to serve as evergreen type product on shelves for any gift giving needs, along with two brand new toys: Titan Changer Cheetor and Soundwave. These are 11 inches high and feature the evergreen style we see in other inexpensive Transformers toys. Looking at the back we see that they have a satisfying level of complexity for younger kids, especially Soundwave. Regardless if you are into these or not, it is impressive to see the level of detail on Cheetor's sculpting with a fresh take on his helmet giving it a more Samurai look than usual. As for Soundwave, Hasbro was able to make a simplified transformation without resorting for fake "tapedeck chest kibble" in the front of the vehicle as they had done on their previous simplified "evergreen/Cyberverse" Soundwaves.

So, these pieces of junk are intended for ages 6+, yet original G1 toys (e.g. Optimus) were intended for ages 5+... when did children get dumber? If these were what were on offer when I was a child, I probably wouldn't be the same collector that I have been for 30 years now. Soon, Transformers will be no more than Go-Bots... so sad.

Simply different norms.
Back in the day, you could swallow the Fisher Price Little People.

Tonka trucks were made of diecast metal.

And earlier than that, children were given ACTUAL FIREARMS AND NUCLEAR KITS.



It was also the time were kids were allowed to play "dangerous games" like tag and Jungle Gym. Kids are not "dumber". We make them so.

Those were the good ol days. Anyone remember Woodburning kits? The superheated sharp object with a cord like 18 inches long? I LOVED our lawn darts, too. And chemistry sets! I tried so hard to make something that would blow up the house.....

Little People were meant for 2yo+. I was around 3 when I had that farm:

A kid can easily put one of those figure in it's mouth. I remember that I did. But swallowing it would take some serious skills.

Still, the modern toys are gigantic so they are not taking any chances.

Image


Back to transformers, The G1 were meant and are still good for kids that are 5yo+, like the current Generations line. However, children that are YOUNGER than that do exist. Also, G1 Transformers cost way less to make at the time than they cost today. Generations toys too are now VERY expensive.

So those cheap and "stupid" simple toys are meant for the very, VERY young and are purposely CHEAP. Parents usually don't want to give super expensive toys to their kids when they know the thing will be broken/ignored in minutes.

That's all.

The number on the front of the box is just who Hasbro is selling to, it has nothing to do with safety. Look on the back (even on Generations figures) and you'll see the safety warnings and the UK 3 and under restriction.

I have some of these titan changers and 6 + makes sense. They are more complex than many G1 figures (definitely more conpkex than G1 Optimus)

However, I don't know why the 1 steps aren't 4+, any 4 year old can transform them, even 3 year old could.

Must be corporate shenanigans because for many of these toys, I have the impression that they decide the "age" by throwing a dice.

Ever since December 1st, we've been getting non stop Transformers Rise of the Beasts news. And when it comes to toys, we have a whole year's worth catching up to 2023 movie toys, giving us a smorgasbord of potential toy news,leaks,first looks ect. And this news has all of that. Sonic Bomber made a Facebook post showing two new Transformers Rise of the Beast deluxe toys: Wheeljack and Nightbird. These toys are assumed to be from the mainline and not studio series although we now know that both series of toys are based on preliminary designs. These are the same size, price and complexity as the Studio Series deluxes.

These are our very first looks at not just the toys but also the characters, who were not highlighted in the first trailer. There were supposed leaks regarding these character designs and these toys support them with Nightbird's head looking like her G1 self and Wheeljack having a redesign from the Bumblebee movie design to have large glasses and no large "ears" (which could have been guessed from the back view we got from the trailer).

People have asked why this Wheeljack has more of that typical "nerd" look and this might be further proof that Michael Bay has a more hands on role, similar to the one he had in the Ninja Turtles movie, a movie where we know he dictated several looks. This looks very similar to Donatello from that film, where Michael Bay does like having obvious visual cues to reinforce a personality or trait. It's easier when handling a movie with a ton of characters, like this one where we have 3 main factions (and 2 lesser ones). These are just assumptions and may have no bearing, just like Michael Bay's involvement with this film does not dictate how good or bad this film will be.

I don't like Wheeljack. They did a great job in the last movie with the G1 look, so why does he look like a stereotypical nerd now?

It's easier when handling a movie with a ton of characters, like this one where we have 3 main factions (and 2 lesser ones).

The previous director, while coming from an animation background, did not need as much of Bay's involvement. He was used to animating action, hence why the fights looked so fluid, more so than any previous film, and the camera was often from the perspective of the Transformers rather than the humans (so higher than usual). This is just to give an idea as to why this film looks like there is more Bay involvement than before.

I don't understand this take. G1 Optimus was simpler than these toys (he has less transformation steps than what we see from the toys in these pictures). And his lack of articulation made him easier for the exact angle needed for a transformation step to be achieved. That's the same tactic Hasbro uses with rescue bots, which are good for even three year olds. I would even argue that it's because G1 was so simple that many people got into it, because it meant even dumb kids could transform them.

Most of G1 had odd proportions, didn't resemble the show, were simplistic in transformation, had very little articulation and some (like Optimus) even had partsforming. So if it made people who are still fans to this day, then there is no reason kids who are given these toys won't be fans for life.

Wheeljack face is literally nerd face emoji. Other than the face the toy looks pretty good.

I expect the Autobots to ask him why he looks so off from previous, and for him to say that "I just was experimenting with something different." That seems like a Wheeljack-y thing to do and could explain why he looks different. The bots can alter their structure to create weapons and such, why not the ability to alter their facial appearance.

If you don't understand how this:

Is not a much better toy than these:

Then I can't help you... you obviously gravitate towards the kiddie toys more.

He look like a nerd?

To me he nails the hippie look.

Really? All I see is this:

If I look at it as sunglasses then all I see is this:

Either way, it's not Wheeljack.
