Fresh from his reveal at ToyFair and surprise availability right after, we have a review of Transformers Studio Series Wave 1 Deluxe Stinger, courtesy of fellow Seibertronian and regular reviewer Chuckdawg1999! Read on to find out what Chuck has to say, and then watch the review to see what you think of this figure.

chuckdawg1999 wrote:Hasbro does love doing the surprise drop every now and then don't they? Fresh from their NY Toy Fair panel comes the Studio Series line of movie figures. Stinger is the first original mold, deluxe class figure we've gotten of the Age of Extinction character and it's, ok. Transformation is the best part if a bit fiddly while robot mode is just ok. A few more tabs to lock things in here in there would've made me happier about the old bot mode. Maybe a transforming gun arm too? I can only recommend the figure for those die-hard Stinger fans as I think there might be better options for general movie fans elsewhere in wave 1.



Are you planning on picking Stinger up? Is he already on his way to your house? (Mine is.) Stinger and the rest of the Wave 1 Deluxes can be found here, but quantities are limited until a restock in April. Let us know what you think below!

I prefer the Takara Lost Age Stinger over this.

Ugh....the joy of transforming movie toys. I will end up getting him though. Im still keeping up with my collection of movie decepticons. I stopped with the autobots after DOTM. But what we really need now is a deluxe Hatchet that transforms into an SUV to complete the trio. Bonus points if they can make dreadbot that turns into a rusted VW van or whatever he was.

Why you crapping so badly on the line Will? This line looks amazing (minus Optimus), and with Grimlock, that fake head is basically seamless, dunno why it's getting such a hard time from you.

And TLK had some great molds. Barricade was a good toy, not overly lackluster, and the voyagers killed it, and there is no real indication that they are gonna drop in quality except for the above mentioned Optimus. TLK killed it with many figures, and Hasbro seems to be going strong again here.

Lockdown and Jazz are really cool! Except for some smaller feet, Jazz continues to look perfect. Love Lockdowns weapons. And if the thing about the saw is true for Starscream, I'll wait for his tattooed self to get the saw.

I'm hoping Megs does end up silver, but he is a buy either way.

Not digging the design of the botmode, so i will pass. The carmode looks beautiful though.

There's been a noticeable amount of salt floating around here since toy fair, not sure why though, but, this line has me so seriously stoked for movie toys, I'm pretty nostalgic for them too, would love a great movie jazz and lockdown, as their first versions were pretty lackluster, gonna get everything probably 'cept the leaders :DANCE:

Do you mean salt just about this line or in general?

Mostly in other threads, I think it was the one-two punch of potp ending earlier than we wanted (and with only one(?) new deluxe) and predaking being super anticlimactic, on top of the super s****y cyberverse line lowering the bar even further being fresh on peoples minds. I personally think this toy fair did a number on our morale as collectors, I guess it's more something I'm sensing from people's comments than anything, but I'm in that group too...

I'm honestly really happy that this line is receiving near universal praise and excitement from people, but I guess that could be from it not being leaked and being the only great thing to come from the toy fair this year :-?

As a movie lover, this line is my dream. I'm so stoked we are getting all these new figures, and I am going to love this. If Battletrap isn't my figure of the year this year, I think one of these will definitely be it

General warning to you guys: apparently, Baltmatrix got his wave 1 deluxes and broke his Bee pretty fast. Not surprised considering he seems to break figures regularly and is not exactly a good reference for quality on figures, especially movie ones, but worth noting to you guys

The roof on the arm is supposed to resemble the pincer canonn he and Bee had in AoE. As for transformation, I think it's weirdly neat, windshield becoming the waist is not something I think I've seen before and am glad that there are still new ways of engineering coming out.

I love it. I hope a Age of Extinction Bee can be retooled from this. Too bad the transformation was obscured by giant scabby hands.

Only figure that doesn't look good is that Optimus, where all the other figures seem to use their v-mode parts to create their bot-mode looks, Prime just gets faux-parts and less flames. He'll be a definite pass as far as this line goes.

Mr. Hamfist Jones breaking a toy? Can't imagine how that happened. Watching the ""review"" (massive airquotes), kind of makes it clear.

Yeah, this and many other reasons are why I stopped watching his reviews.

"All it takes is one, bad, day"

The quality did a nose dive on that Bumblebee. Parts popping off, loose joints... That doesn't bode well.
