Taiwanese reviewer Kevin Liu got his hands on a Transformers Studio Series 22 deluxe Dropkick. While Dropkick is a triple changer in the film, the toy only converts into a helicopter, and below is a video of that transformation. And while there is a Studio Series Shatter coming out which only has a car mode, we are currently unaware of any further releases of either Dropkick with a car alt mode or Shatter with a jet alt mode. This toy comes from the final wave of the wave 4 of the Studio Series line and should be at retail soon. The fullw ave contents are below and as you can see, it will not be hard to find Dropkick.

DELUXE JAZZ x1
DELUXE BUMBLEBEE x2
DELUXE RATCHET x1
DELUXE DROPKICK x3
DELUXE KSI SENTRY x1

Thought I'd share a few pictures of Shadow Raider and Lockdown with parts swapped so you end up with Blazing Lockdown and Night Ops Lockdown (or whatever names you want to call them).

Very nice! Still a shame about no gun face but they look very good.

I got Shadow Raider yesterday and I love it. I'm definitely grabbing Lockdown next time I see him. Just wish deluxes weren't $20 each so I army building would be easier on my wallet.

Yeah, why the increase from $15-16 dollars?

Probably because most of the Studio Series figures are really really good. And also inflation and other economic stuff which I don't understand because I suck at math :-P

It isn't necessarily a price increase now, TLK deluxes were at $20 MSRP as well.

Dropkick needed to be much darker blue, but overall he looks pretty good! I'm hoping we get a muscle car version of him eventually though. and a Jet Shatter. And a Blitzwing

Probably Licensing, Movie toys have to pay to look like real vehicles and if its anything like past lines, Paramount gets a slice of the pie too. Although my local Walmarts just rollback'd their Studio figures to 16.85

Movie, RotF, DotM were all level with other contemporary lines, licensed or not. Plus, the Bumblebee Movie toys actually has two licenses for vehicles: the Chevrolet Camaro and the Volkswagen Beetle, both for the titular character. While true that the Studio Series has the most licenses of any line, the price hike started with TLK.

What may be a factor is the desire to make a clearer distinction between "collector-grade" and "regular toy" lines, with the former having a slightly higher price tag.

Huh, Dropkick looks like Battletrap. I kinda like it.

Speaking of the Bumblebee movie, have we heard anything else about that 2-pack with Volkswagen 'Bee and TLK 'Bee? Never got the TLK one, Volkswagen 'Bee has started popping up in stores in my area and I've been debating if I want to pick him up now or wait for the 2-pack, but I can't find anything about it.

Dropkick being a deluxe is a damn shame. If it were a voyager or leader it would be an automatic buy. But deluxe is an automatic pass. It needs to be a voyager to go with Generations Whirl. Whatever!

It needs to be a deluxe to go with Studio Series Bee.

Why would it need to be a voyager? Or even match up to Whirl... Is there a connection I'm missing?

I mean, he's a SuperCobra, which isn't a huge helicopter, but its certainly a lot bigger than a VW Beetle.

Then again, he also turns into a muscle car, which would only be a LITTLE bigger, so maybe they just got the robot modes close enough and didn't really worry about vehicle accuracy.

No idea what the Whirl connection is though, does he also have a toy that turns into a SuperCobra, maybe?

Studio Series has been more bothered matching up bot modes then the vehicles, and I thought Whirl was a generic helicopter mode but I can see the resemblance.

The G1 toy, in fact. He's similar to the Bell AH-1 Cobra, of which the current SuperCobra is a variant.
