Thanks to a post on Twitter by user @Fc20364, we have photo proof that Studio Series Wave 13 has been found at retail in the U.S.! Jolt and his wavemates were found at a Walmart in Texas, though the exact location wasn't specified.

Transformers News: Studio Series Jolt Found at U.S. Retail

Though not shown in this picture, Gnaw is a new mold, and part of this Wave. Wave 13 also consists of ROTF Bumblebee, first released in the Buzzworthy Bumblebee line; as well as a repack of Jazz.

Are you going to be on a lookout for the electrifying Autobot- especially now that he finally has a screen accurate head? Passing on this figure? Let us know in the Energon Pub forums!

At last! I'll be keeping an eye out, hopefully he starts showing up around here soon.

I really like the render they picked for ROTF Bee, I remember that one specifically from a 3D sticker sheet I had when ROTF came out. The Buzzworthy version used a render of the 07 version of Bee, so I'm glad they fixed that for this release.

I hope we get those shoulder rocket launchers from the render as an accessory at some point!

I got lucky and was able to grab a Jolt and Bee from target.com for retail last Friday. Should be here in the next day or two. I really can not wait. Then all I need to get is Sideswipe.

Thew render is the only thing that Bee has going for it. Its incredibly small, smaller than Kingdom Jazz, transformation is awkward at best, he doesn’t tab in correctly in vehicle mode, and he’s just not that fun to mess around with. Sam is completely pointless.

I have the Buzzworthy release, I really think it's the best deluxe movie Bee. Transformation takes a bit to get used to, but the figure overall, especially in robot mode, is awesome.

I'm going to respectfully disagree with that assessment. Takara's MBM DotM Bee I think takes that award. Some may not like the black spoiler, but other than that it uses the updated DotM movie mold with a great paint.

https://reflector.tfw2005.com/transform ... bumblebee/

I don't see what so good about a teeny tiny Deluxe bee with super loose hips and an awkward transformation that doesn't let him tab in properly in vehicle mode.

Had he been 15% larger he would have been real good, and probably avoided the tabbing issues in car mode.

He's barely o.k at best, but has some real issues.

If size is the main complaint when comparing DOTM against SS, then SS will always come up short (pun alert). SS are all designed to be as close to in scale with the rest of the SS line as possible, not the previous toylines. There was a noticable decrease in size of the movie toys somewhere between DOTM and TLK with Studio Series being pretty close to scale with TLK and sharing some molds.

So far all the SS Bee's except 1 have been the same general size. If this was your first venture into SS for Bee, and your only other experience with the movie lines was pre SS, I can see where your comments are coming from. The one exception is SS79 High Octane Bee, and that is out of scale (just a little bigger than the other SS Bees) because they went cheap and re-used the AoE mold

For the transformation and tabbing together, are you sure you didn't just get a defective one, are are maybe missing a step somewhere? Mine tabs together just fine and most others who have the mold haven't mentioned any problems either. I haven't messed with it in a while, so I can take a look and see if there is something that might cause the tabbing issue you are having.

Greetings Seibertronians! With Jolt having finally made it into the ranks of the Transformers Studio Series, and onto store shelves, fellow Seibertron user, D-Maximal_Primal, has picked him up and graciously shared hand in images!

Fair point. Yes, I had not picked up anything from SS prior to this BB. As much as like the original figures and TLK Megs, SS just never did anything for me. I have been trying to get a cheap SS-32 or 44.

For the transformation and tabbing together, are you sure you didn't just get a defective one, are are maybe missing a step somewhere? Mine tabs together just fine and most others who have the mold haven't mentioned any problems either.

Maybe I am missing a step, but the doors simply won't tab in no matter what I try. Not sure how far the feet need to be slid in, but it seems no matter what I do the doors won't sit flush with the body.

I can only manage to get one to tab in fully, but the other one just pops out of both the fender slot and the roof tab.

Posted by TF-fan kev777 on September 15th, 2021 @ 6:25pm CDT
I think it might be the feet. The grey post needs to be pushed all the way into the black foot piece. like on the right below.

20210915_180435.jpg


Here is what it looks like all the way pushed in from the other side.

20210915_180444.jpg


Here is what both legs from the first photo look like from above tucked under the roof. On the left, the black foot is just starting to peek out from under the roof. On the right there is plenty of clearance under the roof. That is where the clear inside portion of the doors need to sit to have everything tab in.

20210915_180531.jpg


Hopefully this does the trick for you. As a heads up, mine almost had the opposite problem. Mine was in a bin in car mode for a while and the door part and the rear fenders that stay on his legs did not want to let go of each other. I had to work them free a little bit.

I don’t think Sideswipe was supposed to be available till later this year, but there he is! He has a new backdrop, and his bio mentions Sideways.

People have been finding the SS86 sweep and he wasn't suppose to release until November with Sideswipe. I guess Hasbro is just letting all the figures out now lol

These two arrived from Target.com today! The Bee is another great use of that mold and is such a prefect version. My copy has no trouble tabbing together and it looks great. Jolt is one of the stand outs of the year for me. He is probably in my top 5 figures so far. I can't believe how accurate they got him, but I do hope DNA makes some new whips for him. Now I think we only need The Fallen, Sideways, Demolishor, and the Twins for the RotF figures to be completed!

Wow, Hasbro wasn't kidding when they said their priority was getting product on the shelves no matter what. Including, as we've been seeing, no matter what supposed release date they may have been planning, making it look like a massive free for all. We just got the 13th wave of Studio Series deluxe toys with Gnaw and Jolt and now we have wave 14 showing up at Meijer. This is a remold of the DOTM Sideswipe we got and comes with a different background. This free for all in terms of wave schedules is probably to counter any pushback from the slowed down global supply chains in hope that enough product is on the shelves for the holiday season.

'Getting product on the shelves no matter what"? Bull@%#*!. Four WalMarts produced a GRAND COMBINED TOTAL of 5 Transformers figures. 4 Netflix and a Blackarachnia in a spread of four stores. Until I see full shelves, I'll believe Hasbro as much as I believe politicians. I actually believe Hasbro even less.

I know my opinion and dollars mean diddly squat, but until I see actual product on shelves, they aren't getting squat from me monetarily. :-x :-x :-x :-x :-x :-x

Makes sense, you can't give them any money cause there's nothing to buy. But remember, everyone's situation is different. While your stores may suck, others are seeing new product in their stores. It means the product has been reaching the companies that ordered them. Hasbro can't do much after that, it's Walmart and target that then decide which stores to send the product to. And we just know it's not your store right now.

Thanks. Its seems to almost want to peg in now but It still seems the foot cannot be slid all the way in as it interferes with the roof hinge if it is. Guess it's a bit of an acquired feel for where it's supposed to be slid in.

Glad to see you all got to see my Jolt pics. he is a little limited in places, but overall I do really enjoy him. Him and Dino have made a nice pair of deluxe releases this year: not perfect, a few rough spots, but overall very nice and very happy to have them around.

Now to watch out for Sideswipe to finish off the year.

and I agree with EvasionModeBee: the new SS Camaro Bee mold is the best deluxe movie bee mold. They did a really good job with it.

I don't think so. That leader will be too big and out of scale with the current SS. Compared to the voyager, it was also an inferior mold.
Ideally, it would be something akin to SS DOTM Leader Megatron. Same size as the other Megs in bot mode, but with extra engineering to make one hell of a big spacejet. Add the arm cannon, big-ass sword, and the shield to make the ultimate package.

As for the Optimus, even though the TLK voyager is stellar, I'm sure they could make a leader AoE/TlK Optimus that would insanely compress to a "voyager" bot while having his big truck mode with a minimum of kibble.

I said it before, I'll say it again. I don't collect SS, but if we get a SS AoE Galvatron, I'm all over it. I'm hoping for a leader, but I know it's fat chance, since Hasbro wants him in scale with Optimus. I just love that Freightliner truck mode. And yes I know if he was to be "screen accurate" he would have to be basically a Lego figure.

I'm pretty sure that if he's a "voyager" sized leader, SS AoE Galvatron could take a clue from Unique Toy's design and work their magic. Despite his blocky legs, DOTM Leader Megatron was pretty damn clever so I'm sure that Hasbro/Takara could surprise us.

That's a great looking collection! Really like the Lego Devastator too, that's neat!

With regards to AOE/TLK figures, I started off SS sticking with the first 3 movies (though I did get Stinger eventually), but at the rate Bayverse SS is coming now I can definitely accommodate some AOE/TLK stuff.

I'd really like to see both versions of AOE Bee (still holding out a little hope that SS-79's single release will be a new mold), Evasion Prime, Galvatron, Hot Rod, and TLK Barricade. A new Hound with all of his weapons would be cool too!

And while it's unlikely given TLK Bee was released earlier in SS, a new take on that design with SS-49's upgrades to the chest and arms would be great.

We really need a good TLK Barricade, your right!

Because Hasbro Pulse UK still don't have Jolt, Grindor or Thrust listed (they have that dumb grey Jeep Bumblebee though...), I've been looking around for any other UK sites that have a pre-order listing for Jolt, and so far Smyths Toys are the only site I can find with a listing, but it just says Out Of Stock, expected October/November, with no pre-order option. Once I do get it sorted out though, I think Jolt will be the last regular Studio Series figure I buy, unless they do some good figures for Rise of the Beasts next year.

No.

They've been largely avoiding AOE and TLK characters since they're less popular.


The TLK ones especially tended to be mere straight redecos anyway, so there's that too.

Which would make them pretty easy to do.

I have been advocating for completing the AOE/TLK casts and doing updates of other ones like Infernocus for some time. And will continue doing it. We need a proper large Infernocus, and a complete TLK Crew.

And I will fight forever for a Driller toy.

anyways, the newest SS wave gave us some pretty fun toys

I would love to get a commander class driller, maybe 2 foot long and 6 inch in diameter?. They could make it open up into some sort of playset/base. And if you got 2 or more you could connect them together to make it bigger and more accurate. Honestly, I will buy (and have) any thing that they make based off the first 5 moves.

For a while, I didn't think a Driller toy would be viable since I didn't think it would be able to properly transform into anything.

But then it just hit me. It could be given a proper robot mode of its own, by transforming in a snake-like style similar to that of Gigano Dragon (but more stable and with more articulation afforded at a larger size).

I always thought that if there was a Driller made, it would be commander class, and the only way it would achieve a robot mode of sorts is if it was able to split apart and somehow attach itself to leader class Shockwave, making it basically an armor upgrade for Shockwave, like Jetfire did for Optimus.

That would be cool. I would pay for that.

If I remember, the Driller in DOTM is supposed to be GIGANTIC. So the only thing I can see is a titan class, non transformable, but loaded with joints and action features. Included with it would be a Core sized Shockwave. Maybe that Shockwave could be a straight repaint of the DotM Cyberverse Commander Shockwave.

Image

That Driller could open the door to the revival of the excellent DotM Cyberverse line, where all the characters were remade in "Legion" and "Core" sizes. Then maybe introducing playsets in scale. I know they tried it at the DotM time with the Ark, but it was subpart. If they get serious about this, we could have some kick-ass display possibilities.

A Titan Driller would almost have to be an exclusive for just us adults. No way a parent buys his/her kid a $160 plastic snake. :lol: :lol:

Not even 3P dared to tackle Shockwave's Driller. So having one in scale even with the HASLAB Unicron / Kingdom Ark micro figs is a pipe dream.

This is a really cool idea! Although I do think it would have to be bigger.

Got Jolt from Target today, and to my surprise there was 2 of him! Double checked my order and confirmed I only ordered one, so I guess I have one to keep in box!

Jolt is pretty good, robot mode is very well detailed, and the use of transparent plastic on the legs (as detail, not structural) is neat! I’m so used to the older movie toys that it’s a little weird seeing what Jolt actually looks like, but I like it!

The whips are strange - someone at Hasbro thought it was a good idea to make Topspin’s machine guns out of a soft rubbery plastic, but Jolt’s whips are a rigid plastic. Kinda strange, but I do like that they’re long enough to recreate Optimus’ power-up scene.

The only other complaint I have are the thigh panels - they really get in the way of leg articulation. They are easily removable though, which is kinda neat.

Overall, Jolt is good! I give him a thumbs-up!

Here he is with his ROTF wave mates - a really great wave, I gotta say!

Best guess as to why we've never gotten a Transformers toy of the Driller is because it's... not a Transformer. :oops:

It's either a vehicle, or a "wild animal" of some sort.
Then again, the Ark never transformed in the OG Cartoon but in Kingdom, he does. So why not make a Titan DotM Driller that not only would be able to slither around, but also have it's own surprise robot mode.
