Knowing at least half a year's worth of the 2019 Studio Series offerings, there was one glaring unknown: SS 31. Well, now we know both what it is and why we had not heard of it before. SS 31 turns out to be none other than voyager Revenge of the Fallen (ROTF) Megartron with Battle Damage. That damage includes a new darker deco and a new head to reflect what he looked like at the end of ROTF. This was revealed on Hobbybase's Facebook page where it seems to be available in that particular store in Hong Kong.

The listing on Robot Kingdom tells us why we had not heard of it yet, it is an exclusive item. We do not know yet who in the US will be carrying this exclusive item, but judging at how easy every other Studio Series exclusive has been to order or obtain in the US, there shouldn't be anything to worry about.

We also have more images of upcoming voyager Rampage and deluxe Scrapmetal found on the Snakas blog.

One mystery leads to another.

Scrapmetal is so very RID2001 Grimlock that I kind of want to see the whole Build Team made out of RotF Devastator.

AH GODDAMIT! #-o

Now there's a Megatron with ACTUAL PAINT. I knew I bought my SS Megatron too quickly.
This one seem much better through the packaging. Looking forward in hand images.

They are in scale, they're going off of the official robot mode scale chart, the vehicle mode scale doesn't matter to them >:oP


Even the botmodes are not correct, Prime is smaller than Megatron and Blackout, which should be the biggest Decepticon is not the biggest. :HEADHURTS:

Oh wow, Scrapmetal is pretty charming! I may end up getting him if I see him.

If Battle Damaged Megs has his stylish head wound, does he also have his cannon arm ripped off?

Also, that Scrapmetal isn't so "Bay-ish" that it wouldn't work as a custom figure in other settings, given a new head.

Who’s a bigger Decepticon from the Studio Series so far? Because remember, Studio Series is running off of a new Robot Mode Scale, not one that already exists from previous movie toy lines.

Glarryg

That's probably because he's an extensive remold of Combiner Wars Scavenger. I'm honestly surprised with how so few people recognize this, assuming you hadn't yet yourself.

Sorry if that sounded "snobish", I meant it as an observation, not a condescending remark.

Its not being mentionned now because everyone already did back when he was first revealed, and we have moved on since.

I doubt that actually. In this day and age, reusing parts and bit of engineering is so commonplace, everything is called a retool :lol:

To be fair, the legs and the arms are similar in construction, but Scrapmetal is all new in the part department, so technically not a retool in the slightest.

And #31 is a battle-damaged Megatron? Surprising. Good call on the head, Hasbro :shock:

We are updating the article below with more images of Studio Series SS 31 Battle Damaged Revenge of the Fallen Megatron from Robot Kingdom's Facebook page and Stanley Cheung on Facebook. These show the head in a close up as well as the darker plastic being used and the deco. We also see the back of the box which tells us that the backdrop will be the Egyptian temple where Prime battles both Megatron and the Fallen, leaving one with part of his head missing and the other without a face.

Knowing at least half a year's worth of the 2019 Studio Series offerings, there was one glaring unknown: SS 31. Well, now we know both what it is and why we had not heard of it before.

I didn’t notice until you pointed it out just now.

...and at last, the mystery is solved, and everything is right with the line again. I have no interest in this figure, but I am very glad to have all the numbers accounted for. Does that make me OCD (an Order-Controlled Decepticon)? I dunno.

Also I still really want Scrapmetal, he looks so fun to just have around and pose.

I'm not even collecting these figures, and I'm glad the numbers all work now (even if it is a pretty low -hainging-fruit repaint) with a new head. Transformers and numbers-in-series has always been a BIG deal for me ;) .

I like it, it's different enough from the regular version for me, may have to get both :lol: Though, I wonder when they'll attempt another Fallen toy.

As for that Scrapmetal, what class is he again? Voyager?

Deluxe (argument against retool: different Class), along with Hightower. By contrast, Rampage and Long Haul are Voyagers.

Scrapmetal just seems to be re-using a lot of ideas and general concepts and improving on them. There can't be that many ways to turn an excavator into a robot?

I like his digitigrade legs and Muppet hands.

Know what else he vaguely resembles?

Catching up on a few topics:

I would not mind if they made a Bumblebee movie Wheeljack. I have grown to really love that design. He's my favorite Cybertron mode of the movie bots, period.

I'm super excited for the voyagers, leaders, and WWII Bee. I'm saving an amazon card to help buy them once they arrive.

The combination with Jetfire and Prime looks pretty dang good. I'm happy with it and can't wait to get it beside the RotF version.

As for a wishlist, I'm glad you brought this up Densh. Here is mine before this line ends, besides what is already known to be coming (constructicons wise really since we are getting Devastator [squeals]) and in order of appearance:

-Movie 1 Megatron (the existing voyager was my first TF ever, I want an update to stand beside him)
-Skids + Mudflap in their RotF chevy bodies (I got the Ice Cream Truck and DotM versions, DotM skids isn't good at all)
-Dino
-car Soundwave
-Leadfoot
-Roadbuster (needs weaponized)
-Topspin, if necessary. The first is already awesome
-voyager Slug
-WWII Hot Rod
-Proper Infernocus (preferably leader sized)
-Onslaught
-Mohawk
