Thanks to fellow Seibertronian TF-fan kev777, we have our first in hand images of Transformers Buzzworthy Bumblebee Studio Series SS 15 and SS 74. The SS 15 Bumblebee uses the Studio Series 76 Camaro mold while the SS 74 is a retool of the modern Camaro mold and the first release of Bumblebee in his Revenge of the Fallen look. The Buzzworthy SS 15 toy turns out to not be an actual rerelease of anything past but something slightly new. While we initially thought it was a rerelease of the "Rebekah's Garage" Bumblebee, which is the original Studio Series 15 toy but this one actually has painted striped AND the pin missing from the earlier versions of the mold which kept making the roof detach. So, all in all, this might be the best version of that original Studio Series 01 Bumblebee toy.

You can see the images taken by kev below for these two toys.

Almost the best...it needs the battle damage and some of the paint apps that were added in the 01 release. Now I'd like to get this one while the original 15 Bumblebee is used for completionism and to add some other clone of Bee in a headcanon (or maybe a statue for a community that basically likes Bee).

I had my first Studio Series 86 sighting last night at Target. It was Voyager Hot Rod, and it was the only one on the shelf. No other '86 figures to be found. I was going to buy it, but upon closer inspection, saw a bunch of paint scratches on the chest, so I had to pass for now.

My Target had 1 Blurr on the pegs... Nothing else from SS86.
But they had 5 Buzzworthy figures, all were different, but I didn’t look at those very closely.
Was hoping to find Hot Rod, but seeing Blurr was still exciting since there’s a good chance I see more SS86 figures soon.

I can honestly say that I'd gladly remove any pre-orders for the SS-86 figures I have on Amazon because having them not be released until April seems like a waste of time if I ever get my hands on them in-stores. I can only hope that I can get them all ASAP.

Not quite sure where to post this, since it's not labeled as Studio Series, but this is where most of the Buzzworthy Bumblebee discussion is. I saw these at Target yesterday. Did we know about these already, or did I somehow stumble upon something new?

The thing with Amazon is that they could really ship anytime between now and April, it is almost a crap shoot. Kingdom Paleotrex wasn't due till Feb, but arrived in time for Christmas. If Amazon receives them from Hasbro early, they will ship out early and not wait for April.

As someone who has all the beasts preordered through Amazon, it is incredibly annoying that my Paleotrex hasn't shipped yet while people who ordered him this week already have him.

I'm wondering when Megatron will ship, he's not due until March at the moment

Do we have a thread for everyone’s top 10 figures of last year? I seem to remember there being something like that in previous years. I was going to post mine here since all the figures I bought last year were Studio Series, but I think it might be less disruptive to the conversation to have a thread just for that.

Greetings Seibertronians! Fellow Seibertron user, and YouTube toy reviewer, Lore Keeper, has uploaded a video review of the stealth released Transformers Studio Series SS 74 Revenge of the Fallen Deluxe Class Bumblebee! This figure has been snuck out along with the rest of the Target Exclusive Buzzworthy Bumblebee line.

We have embedded the review below for your convenience:



Bumblebee also comes included with a Sam Witwicky non-poseable figure.

With the addition of this figure, it means that the only versions of Bumblebee not represented in the Studio Series line is the versions of him from the Dark of the Moon, Age of Extinction and The Last Knight movies (except his WW2 version of course)

Will you be adding this bee to your hive? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

Technically, TLK Bee was reused in the line back in 2018 with a reuse of the VW mold, though a new version would be welcome.

I finally put a preorder on SS hot rod 2 days ago, and especting to recieve it near the end of march, which is moderately fast, for indonesian standard.

For those of you already owning him, how tight is the hinge on his visor? Because i have the MP, and it is uncomfortable tight, particularly considering it is a tiny hinge made of clear plastic, that i end up never using the visor due to fear of it breaking.

Not sure how the Masterpiece works, but for the SS86 figure, it is rather elegant in its simplicity and not tight at all, at least on mine. I've flipped it a few times now.

The mechanism on MP is exactly the same as this. Good to know the visor joint is better here.

Anyone looking for SS86 figures at Target should make sure to check endcaps at the back of the aisles (the ones that face the games/puzzles).
That's where I found Hot Rod and Scourge this morning. Also a lot of Kingdom figures.
There was not display or signage. Just tags on the shelves and pegs.

Anyway, these SS86 figures are incredibly good as expected... And I will say I really think Cyclonus was originally supposed to be in this line. To me it seems like he is a perfect fit aesthetically with Hot Rod and Scourge in that there isn't the extra molded details that we see on ER and Netflix (and Siege) figures. Which also leads me to believe that Grimlock was originally supposed to be part of ER; there is a ton of extra molded detail on him. I'm definitely anxious to see what we get with Galvatron and Slag.
Initially I thought Scourge would be my favorite followed by Hot Rod, but Cyclonus is my favorite of the 3. None of those product shots really did him justice imo; he's so much better in person.

Oh also, the visor on my Hot Rod is fine and not overly tight at all.

Hot rod, scourge, and all other SS86 guys were originally going to be released in the 3rd part of WFC, along side cyclonus. But then beast wars came to be the 3rd part and F'ed everything up. That is why they look good with each other.

I was going to say the same thing :lol: though it should be noted that its only a theory at the moment unless one of the designers at Hasbro say otherwise, but I'd say that if Beast Wars wasn't having an anniversary this year, ss86 wouldn't exist and instead these figures would be in WFC 3.

The shade of yellow on this Bee is spot-on! I also really like the backdrop color scheme for the Buzzworthy figures.

My first figure of 2021, too!

Awesome! Did you find it in store? I haven't pulled the trigger on Target.com because for some reason they are $22.99 instead of $19.99, with the exception of WWII Bee. I want to get the classic and RotF ones for the minifigs.

On another note, I corrected some mistakes I made a couple years ago

Image

Cogman is really nice, I have a hard time choosing which of the 2 is my favorite, but the SS one will be in car mode for "in scale" Cogman on the shelf.

Image
Image
Image

Shadow Raider is really nice. I love the gun and the way it works on the arm, practically replacing the hand! and the orange is lovely. He is the newest Mercenary

Image
Image

I love KSI Sentry. The Stinger mold proved to be really good, and one of my favorites. I love the mold, the colors and heads used on both, it's fantastic. Definitely one people slept on. He makes a nice new con for the AOE crew and the con shelf in general. Now we need a SS Galvatron

Nice Haul D-Max! All 3 of those are ones where I like the versions you just got better than the originals. The orange on Shadow Raider is just exquisite and probably my favorite of the 3 despite a pretty simple transformation. I removed the back piece from KSI Sentry that holds the spinny blades for Stinger that he doesn't come with for an easier time getting everything into car mode. I currently have 3 Cogmen (1 TLK, 2 SS) but use them as bodies for TR Shuffler, Ramhorn and Lione. When I eventually thin them down I'll keep one of the SS versions and sell the other 2 off.

Yep, I found it in stores. They had 2 WWII Bees, 1 Car Shatter, and 1 ROTF Bee. Sam is pretty cool, but he's almost all black plastic so I'm working on painting him to look like he does in DOTM.

I actually don't have any of those figures you picked up, but they all look really nice!

Shadow Raider is actually the only Studio Series figure (besides Thundercracker, who I got on Amazon) that I never saw in stores. Universal Megatron would be on that list as well, but I actually saw it at the collector's store near me yesterday! It looks great and the backdrop is really cool, but considering it's a Leader class mold I already have (and I still need Overload), I don't think I'll be picking it up. At least not right now, anyway.

I'm only missing the following repaints:

Thundercracker
DOTM Ratchet
Shadow Raider
Retro Rock Garage Bumblebee
KSI Sentry
Bumblebee Then & Now 2-pack
Clunker Bumblebee
Crankcase
Battle Damaged Megatron
TLK Drift
As Seen In Parks Megatron
Devastator

This excludes the Buzzworthy repaints of Classic and ROTF Bee since I'm getting them (original SS-15 won't be needed) while we've yet to get other waves for 2021. I'd also exclude the Asian Lucky Draw repaints for price reasons.

I'd forgotten about the other Titans masters, maybe I'll give them a shot on the SS body. But I love the SS one in alt mode with the paint.

Shadow Raider is actually the only Studio Series figure (besides Thundercracker, who I got on Amazon) that I never saw in stores. Universal Megatron would be on that list as well, but I actually saw it at the collector's store near me yesterday! It looks great and the backdrop is really cool, but considering it's a Leader class mold I already have (and I still need Overload), I don't think I'll be picking it up. At least not right now, anyway.

Hopefully I find them in stores then, I'd like to not spend $23 on a deluxe!

You definitely need an Overload, he's great by himself and makes a nice solid Devastator set of shorts! I got 2 because of the preorder prices, no regrets there.

In terms of mainline SS, The only ones I don't have now from retail are DotM Ratchet, Crankcase, OG Starscream, and Rusty Bee. I'm also missing exclusive wise SS69 Devastator, Bee w/ Charlie, the retro pop duo, the Then and Now Be 2-pack, and any Asia or Takara exclusive ones.

I finally have my Studio Series Jetfire and Optimus in the same place today, so I got to combine them!

Please ignore my bad first attempt at flames

This thing is SO cool! I’m liking it even more than I thought I would.

It is a great combination! They did a pretty dang good job of setting up a more buff and more posable powered up Optimus, i only wish he had stronger arm joints or that the Jetfire gun was smaller.

I actually haven’t used the SR-Seventygun yet, I lost one of the halves to the gun barrel. I’m using the DOTM tribarrel gun instead, and it kinda works.

I don't know if this has been discussed before. But I was looking at the packaging with Scourge SS'86 and its very specific aesthetic.

This made me think about Cyclonus. Whenever SS Cyclonus does become a thing, after all these years, are HasTak going to officially recognise who he is? [Bombshell, not Skywarp]

I think you've missed the toy description for Kingdom Cyclonus.

Indeed :lol:

Well for the layout of their own packaging, they may have to get off the fence and actually name one.

I've never understood the contention.

It answers itself in the scene composition. Thundercracker is front and centre. He is reformatted into Scourge. Bombshell is likewise front and centre, reformatted into Cyclonus. Skywarp is in the background, just as the other Insecticons that became the Sweeps.

The Sweeps' fluctuating numbers have made lots of fans think that they are the reformatted Insecticons (what with multiplication being their signature ability).

A lot of people just dislike that asymmetry.

I suppose so. Although I can't think of who could have been the sixth dead Decepticon? It probably doesn't help that ultimately Skywarp was reformatted into Armada nothing...

Exactly. The main argument for skywarp being cyclonus is always "it would make more sense because thundercracker became scourge." So it's less about what actually happened and more about what makes someone feel better I guess lol
