TakaraTomy has uploaded a new web series called "3 Transformers", starring the Studio Series toys of Optimus Prime, Ratchet, and Bumblebee.

A parody of The 3 Little Pigs, this first episode is titled "Let's Make a House!"



From what I can gather from the bad auto-translation of the closed captions, in the year 20XX, three Transformers (Optimus Prime, Ratchet, and Bumblebee) come to a new land to live there, and each decide to build a house for them all to live in.

Bumblebee decides to build a house made of straw because it is light and easy to work with, completing his work in less than a day. Optimus, however, is worried that the straw house may not be able to withstand an attack should one occur, and Ratchet thus decides to build a more durable house. Bumblebee, however, does not take their concerns to heart, basically telling them both not to worry so much.

Nonetheless, Ratchet proceeds to build a stronger house out of wood and made with more care, which takes him two days to complete. Optimus is more impressed with this house, but still can't shake his anxiety.

So, Optimus takes it upon himself to build an even stronger house, this time one made with bricks. Unlike the others, it take Optimus a whole five days to complete the brick house. And it turns out to be a good thing that he finished when he did, too, because, all of a sudden, the ground begins to shake.

"The footsteps of a sinister sound echoed in the distance."

If anyone is curious, that's a Zoids Death Rex at the end. I figured it was a Zoid from the feet and it didn't take long to find one on HLJ. I was hoping this would end with a SS Devastator full preview, but I guess not yet.

As I still contemplate Blackout, a thought occurred: is Grindor larger than Blackout on screen? If so, will he ever get a SS figure? I thought about buying Blackout and just using him as Grindor, despite 'Blackout' being painted on his tail, in case a Grindor figure is out of the question and sticking with the original voyager Blackout figure.

I think Grindor might be bigger on-screen, not sure. Optimus' climbing up onto him makes it seem like that's the case but it's hard to tell. That said, a Leader Blackout nonetheless scales better with movie figures outside of SS than the Voyager, plus he's more accurate.

Grindor differs from Blackout in more ways than just his colors. While Blackout is a Sikorsky MH-53 Pave Low, Grindor is the slightly different Sikorsky CH-53E Super Stallion. The former model was retired from active service in 2008.

For Grindor, some slight vehicle mode retooling may be in order.

They might not bother, since Grindor's robot mode doesn't account for the differences. But then again they might, just to make him different beyond being silver.

At this point, I'm not expecting a Grindor to come out until at least next summer/fall, if at all.

we know 2 Leader figures next year are Overload and Scavenger, so a 3rd would probably come out next year at the same time the leader Prime this year comes out.

I very much doubt we will get a Grindor

Hopefully that means it’ll be shipping from Pulse sooner than the September 1 estimate!

Also, there’s a 360 degree view of the figure on that page! That’s our first look at the back of the jet pack and weapons platform. The paint deco is the one from toy fair though (bright red and yellow fade), which is interesting because we now have no less than 3 different stock images of this Prime with slightly different decos.

I dunno, it would be a way to get more money out of the Blackout mold.

Would be a good litmus test: if Grindor is released as a straight redeco of Blackout, how many fans will complain about the vehicle being inaccurate and talk down on the Studio Series as a whole? :-?

They released this thing, didn't they?:

People hate this thing's guts for being inaccurate, and it is still shelfwarming since... December? Primus...

Either way, whether they retool the copter to leave an inaccurate robot, or redeco the mold to have an inaccurate copter mode, fans will still be bothered, so it all boils down to whatever you prefer.

I know that, but I wanted to focus on the criticism about his inaccuracy to the movie character, much like the discussion about whether or not Grindor should be a retool or redeco of Blackout.

And on the subject of Dropkopter, while it may be fiddly to handle and transform, it is nowhere near Bold Forms Gladius...

Which browser do you use? I use Firefox, most recent version, and if the picture was supposed to have any interactivity it was proving completely nonfunctional for me.

EDIT: I guess my browser was just misbehaving that time, possibly from the length of the session.
I tried it again just now, and this time the ALL the pictures loaded as well as the 360 view vid, and the "Large View" function actually functioned.

I'm using the Walmart app, and while the preorder listing is there, there are only the stock photos on it, with no turn around video. Target has removed its listing from the app, which is strange considering it was there for like a month or two.

Technically we have four variations going here:

Bright red with painted weapons (Toy Fair display)
Dark red with unpainted weapons (April Stock Photos)
Bright red with unpainted weapons (Walmart.com spinning video)
Painted abs, bright red with unpainted weapons (new Takara Tomy stock photos)

I don't think we'll actually know what we're getting until somebody has one in hand.
