There is a lot going on in the Transformers Studio Series line. So much that it calls for a quick fire round up. Here is all you need to get up to speed on what's new.

The latest wave of deluxes and voyagers (scheduled for a January 2019 release) have been found. Not in the US yet, but we have reports of them in Taiwan. The wave includes WWII Bumblebee, DOTM Sideswipe, Bonecrusher and the new Optimus Prime that can combine with leader Jetfire.

Regarding that new Prime, we have images showing how it compares to the previous Optimus Prime released in the line and it is far from just having slightly different tooling and colours. It actually looks to have a totally different transformation for the torso, especially in terms of where a lot of kibble ends up in the back. The pictures were posted on the TFND Facebook page (along with the sighting above).

We also have our first in hand images of Rampage, a voyager coming later next year. He is movie accurate in the best and worst ways possible as you will see. Please remember that it does seem like the threads can become whips and there may have been some sacrificing to have a combining movie Devastator. The pictures were found on Instagram.

Also we have three new reviews from PrimevsPrime showing us the upcoming deluxe Barricade, WWII Bee and Sideswipe.

I'm really struggling to find parts in common between the two Primes. Feet, gray shins, pelvis, and maybe the head. It's definitely more than just a new chest like we initially thought.

So after seeing the Bumblebee movie yesterday, I've come to the conclusion that we need a shit ton more figures from this movie in the SS line. Starting with a new Dropkick.

That movie was INCREDIBLE. It was a nice mix of E.T and The Love Bug, plus all the bots were classic looking. Seriously, many designs on Cybertron need to be made into the SS series. I'd go nut for that movieverse Arcee who don't look like an aborted shrimp.

I need an SS Blitzwing after seeing the movie, A Jeep Bumblebee that doesn’t use SS-18’s engineering would be cool too (and, of course, the other modes for Shatter and Dropkick), but I think that’s pretty much it in terms of figures I want in SS. I’d be interested in a Cybertronian Bumblebee, but those designs are kind of a rabbit hole I don’t know if I want SS going down. I think siege has the G1-with-greebles thing covered already.

Optimus looks great, my only gripe would be that the back still isn’t quite good, even though it’s leaps and bounds better than the previous Prime.

Rampage is shite though. I understand they sacrificed anything good in order for him to combine, but I loathe ROTF Devastator, so I’m perfectly happy using my ROTF Rampage alongside the new Studio Series Long Haul. I don’t need my Constructicons to combine.

Hopefully they’re able to make Scavenger/Demolisher not suck balls.

Yes please! Dropkick deserves a much better toy than the one he has now. I'd love a seeker mold too. I don't care if it's the Cybertron one or the Blitzwing one, just make a good one and repaint the absolute shit out of it. I will buy them all.

Wasn't really expecting to pick up any of the Constructicons, but damn if that Rampage isn't all kinds of hot & sexy robot.

Accurate to the movie I guess, kinda wish there was some articulation to the tail but it definitely looks more like the movie character then Mr. "I'm not a centaur honest"

Does he turn into a hand for devesator again or a leg? I'm thinking it would be awesome to try and get that form as a leg to gave pirate devesator

Leg.

Though, the one in the movie who formed the leg was yellow, while the red one was off busy fighting and being killed by Bumblebee. Then again, since only the red one who didn't combine was specifically identified as Rampage in the movie, if they do eventually make a yellow version later, he could always be given the name and identity of Skipjack.

I agree but only on the bots on Cybertron. Because I want them all ;)^

Unless I'm mistaken, didn't Bee's cybertronian alt-mode make the WfC/FoC games pretty closely.

I'd only want new Dropkick and Shatter molds if they're full on triple-changers, but I know that's a tall order. They were good bad guys but I didn't find them all that interesting.

I really hope some or all those TRUE Cybertronian designs from the Bee Movie to make it into the SS line.

But I know they won't happen because it would enter direct competition with the current Generations Cybertron Trilogy.

I don't know, we're kinda chumps. I know I'd buy both. The Cybertronian OP in the SS line proves there a possibility. Oddly enough I want him more than the Siege Prime.

No, we f***ing don't. Studio Series was the only Transformers toyline I actually enjoyed to collect and now it's threatening to start to turning into yet another boring G1 update line like we've had countless times before with the appearance of that bricky-looking G1 Prime (which doesn't look even half as good as the update of the real movie Prime. Goddamn, yet another reason why I wish that dumb idiotic unoriginal sloppily written movie had been a total reboot so it could be separate from this and all it's toys could go under a separate movie line. Don't even much like having my TWO (yellow and gold) VW Bees on that shelf anymore. If I want Transformers resembling the G1 characters I'd bloody well buy stuff from PotP, Siege and so on. But I don't cos those tired bricky designs don't appeal to me. Hell, most of them didn't do it for me even when I was a kid in the 80s.

And 'TRUE Cybertronian' designs? What the hell's that supposed to mean? This movie has really made a total mess of things. So all the movie characters I've loved the designs of for the past ten years are supposed to have originally looked like their G1 counterparts that I dislike? Gee thanks Travis Knight, you dick...

Don't bloody buy those toys then problem solved, whoopity doo things that you don't like exist, why you raining down on those who do want toys of those designs?

The answer to things is coexisting, not crusading to get rid of something.

Easy there cowboy. Your opinion of this film, I'm sorry to say, is in the vast minority. The SS line is for movie figures, and we have a whole new batch of movie characters to get figures.

If they can make the worthless Stinger, Grimlock, and Lockdown, they can make Wheeljack, Brawn, and a good Shockwave.
