There are two pieces of news that have been brought to our attention lately, all involving Studio Series figures. First, via site sponsor Robot Kingdom, and their Facebook page, we have in package images of Voyager Class Movie 1 Megatron and Mixmaster. This marks the first time we've seen this version of Megatron in his packaging, though as Seibertronian D- Maximal_Primal points out,
the movie 1 toy has the 2nd movie torso and the art on the box is the first movie body with the 2nd movie head
Accuracy issues aside, it's notable that this version of Megatron also barely fits in his box as well- looks like he'll be a large sized Voyager, like his predecessor. Mixmaster on the other hand, is quite a wide figure, taking up a lot of space in his box.

And in other Studio Series news, it appears that a couple of Japanese Twitter users have gotten their hands on figures of Arcee, Chromia, and Elita-1 and managed to combine them. If you'll remember a decade ago, the original deluxe sized versions of Arcee and Chromia had parts on their figures that served no other purpose, but were rumored to have been part of a leftover movie concept that would have shown the three combining. As it is, those features made it into Arcee and Chromia's figures, but Elita-1 was relegated to a redeco of Chromia's figure, so the concept was nixed.

Whether these Studio Series figures are officially supposed to combine, or these are just some clever fan modes remains to be seen, but there are some good shots of all three fembots in both modes included. These pictures come from Twitter users @konkiti1031 and @Pta56556613. Thanks to Seibertronian Sammythekat for the heads up!

guess this explains the blue part on arcee's shoulder from the images released a while back.
Also, weren't we told that they wouldn't combine, or was that just a rumour?

Well, Megatron’s render is something else but Mixmaster’s render is super cool looking. Wonder where they got it from, maybe the DOTM Game? It has that kinda look to it.

I don't really like the way Elita-1's cycle mode hangs off of the back of the combiner, but other than that it looks great. :BOT:

Looks like the result of a horrible accident on the side of the highway. Pretty macabre combiner mode … :???:

The triplets really should've been sold at the voyager price point. This way each figure could have slightly better articulation/transformations, higher parts counts and have more paint apps. It also would've left more engineering money for the combined mode, assuming it's a thing that's actually supposed to happen with the toys.

Just a little bit extra put into each one so that something actually transforms in Elita-1's left hand/arm so it's not just a wheel. Some spikes like Ghost Rider or some hands or something like Brimstone/Chopsaw or Oil Slick. Getting a motorcycle tire to the face would mess up a human easily and then some. However, to a much larger Decepticon though, it's not going to do much of anything but tickle them.

I'll get this set anyway as it looks interesting but this is also one set that I'm really looking forward to seeing if any company makes one of those upsized AND upgraded KOs of.

Here's some concept pictures of the combined mode for reference. I think they're both legit. They're both pretty different form each other but the first one kinda sorta looks like what we got with the toys. If the components were in different spots.

Considering there's been no official word on the combiner mode then I don't there's a right or wrong way here, other than what ever looks the least bad

As for the size, I don't think adding extra parts in would have helped as they are small (scale wise to the rest of the cast) so having them be voyager would just make them too fiddly.

We were told absolutely nothing. And honestly, I don't think this is the combined mode the fans asking for one wanted.

As mentioned before, I don't think these pics even show a combined form, as both Twitter users were still in the process of trying to figure one out, with their pics merely showing some extra pegs and tabs and their attempts to figure out some combination rather than showing any fully-realized combination.

These pics don't show an actual combination, just the two Twitter users' experimented attempts at trying to figure out a combination.

I'm looking forward to finding them and trying this out. Gonna need to find them in person, since I couldn't secure them or Soundwave on pre-order.

But I am stoked that there appears to be a way to make some combinations

It looks like the robotic version of the alien from John Carpenter's "The Thing." Hard pass.

A hard pass because of a fan mode?

I'm not sure about the bike girls. I already have the original deluxes so those will be superfluous. However, if there IS an official combined mode, not THAT would be interesting.

As for '07 Megatron, that's one I'll get on day one. Especially because e will go perfectly well in the SS Megs display, is 1000X superior to the original '07 voyager, and is PROPERLY PAINTED from the get-go.

Thanks to a listing on Previews World, we have the CGI renders for some upcoming figures in the Studio Series line! Posted below, you can see Dark of the Moon Roadbuster; Shatter, from the Bumblebee movie in her jet mode, and also from that movie, Bumblebee in his first earth mode, that of a jeep. They are listed as being available on April 1st, 2020, likely out after the next upcoming wave consisting of Concept Camaro Bumblebee, Soundwave, WWII Hot Rod and Arcee/Chromia/Elita-1.

Date for release: April 1st

I don't think this is an April Fool, but MAN, do I want Jeep Bee! :x

They actually all look good.

I'm holding out hope that Shatter is far better than her car mode figure. That was a fiddly mess. This one, going off this picture alone, looks to be better articulated, for starters.

YEAH ROADBUSTER!

Roadbuster is looking awesome - actually, all these look really good! I'm not interested in Shatter but they got it to look just like the CGI model, and Jeep Bee is looking great too!

With the deluxes revealed, I wonder how long until we see Sentinel!

Very happy to see they did Shatter right. Roadbuster and Bumblejeep look good too. Can’t wait to add them to the shelves!
