2021 is right at our doorstep so the Transformers due out first quarter were bound to appear sooner or later. And now, we have US sightings of the Transformers Studio Series 86 voyagers and deluxes. Voyagers Hot Rod (who you'll recall is deluxe height) and Scourge were spotted at Target in Murrieta, CA today. We thank fellow Seibertronian Rysquad for letting us know. The Deluxes were found by Alchemist Prime Reviews (on youtube), who wrote to us, in Long Beach California. We have a receipt below. The deluxes in that case are Blurr, Kup and Jazz.

And while not exactly a studio series figure, those take up a big part of the Buzzworthy Bumblebee line and the two pack with Spike was also found at Target, this time in Chicago. The source for the sighting is a post on TFW.

If you have found them, share your sightings with our community in the sightings section and on our boards in your region related thread.

Oh yeah, it does say February right there. In my defense, I was in a rush to pre-order at the time so I didn't read the whole thing :HEADHURTS:


It's all good. Will you cancel your preorders if you find them in stores first?

Hot Rod and Jazz are bought on sight if I find them, maybe Grimlock depending on if it is a payday weekend or not. Scourge is mainly to go with Cyclonus so I may keep that pre-order, not in a rush to get him like the others.


Interesting. By contrast, Scourge is the one that interests me most since he is the only toy of the bunch that doesn't have a decent figure out there scale wise.

I was never a fan of the space barge design his alt-mode has going on. But every picture I've seen of SS86 Scourge has looked really good, both bot and alt-mode, so I definitely want him.

As much as I like the Decepticons overall, Scourge was never a favorite.
But this SS86 version is not to be missed.
Cyclonus has really impressed me, & I agree with you, Scourge is one I REALLY want.
Him & Grimlock.
I’m very anxious for Galvatron as well.

With current hunting trends in my area, it’s a bit difficult to believe I’ll find any of these in-store before my online orders come through.

An awesome looking bunch! I really like the deco on the Universal SS Megatron.

It's interesting that Takara is giving all of the SS86 toys their own proper Studio Series ID numbers instead of just 86 for each of them.

Just saying, I love how big Devastator is and also how he towers over the rest of the SS cons and can roar to his hearts content

Target at Spectrum Mall in Phoenix had a single SS86 Jazz and a single SS86 Blurr along with some WfC Micromasters and various Cyberverse figures. When I first hit the aisle, I could see the TF section, and it looked bare, but once I got closer, I saw the two remaining Studio Series figures. I picked up Jazz for myself and left Blurr for another lucky individual. I might hit another Target tomorrow in the hopes of finding Hot Rod.

I'm more interested in when ER Thrust is going to be more readily available! Still no sightings of HIM anywhere near my realm...

Jazz is pretty cool. You can flip the door panels out to give him small wings, similar but not as pronounced as the G1 look. The transformation is like a cross between WFC and Studio Series, as the entire top of the car is a backpack, but it folds up pretty nicely. Standing next to ER Wheeljack and TR Hot Rod, we can see TR Hot Rod is a little tall, but that should be rectified by SS86 Hot Rod once I find him. Then in alt-mode next to a couple of other racing cars from WFC, you can tell he looks like he definitely belongs. In the middle photo, I have his backpack mistransformed, the panel which becomes the back window tucks under the roof to fold away, but I was uncomfortable applying pressure to that hinge until I watched a video on youtube. This totally blows away PotP Jazz, and if they make a Ricochet Selects for this, I will buy it in a heartbeat. The PotP guys are better combiner limbs than figures, in my opinion anyway. This new mold is fun to transform and looks just like a Porsche, even though it is unlicensed.

Congrats on such an awesome score!!
I really dig his alt mode too... Which normally I don't care about as much.
And that TR Hot Rod looks like a knock-off to me... He's just very generic-looking imo.

Anyway, this gives me hope that here in the midwest we'll start seeing these guys soon.

Yesterday I found two Voyager Hot Rods at the Target in Encinitas, California. Bought one, left one.

He's a very nice figure - totally lives up to the Hasbro glamour shots. But I do want to offer a small word of warning. His alt-mode relies on lots of tabs and tight slots to hold together. One definitely wants to exercise caution while transforming him. Of particular note are the pipes on his arms. There's an incredibly small tab on each arm's middle pipe which is supposed to connect to the middle pipe on each leg. If any part of his torso isn't completely tabbed together as intended, the pipe tabs will be subject to extreme levels of tension, and trying unsuccessfully to separate them can result in the tabs breaking clean off. It happened by accident to my figure's left arm, leaving one side of the vehicle mode looking off-kilter. Out of curiosity - and resignation - I deliberately snapped off the tab on his other arm to see if it would even him out. The good news is that his car mode is completely stable and symmetrical without them, as long as everything else is secure. His arms are a little easier to position during conversion, but they aren't loose or otherwise problematic. Still, it's an issue worth watching out for, and one that I suspect will be a common source of frustration once more of these end up in collectors' hands.

They do have their own numbers, Hasbro just made it smaller next to the 86.

Yeah, they aren't in line with the rest of SS, but I think Hasbro's way is better for separating the two styles, especially for the movie purists.

yeah I figured the 86 was apart of the line name, thus making it a subline of SS and giving them their own numbers. So when Studio Series is counted, only the actual Bayverse figures should be considered, if we're talking about the animated movie figures they are Studio Series 86.

Which raises the question: what's the assortment ID code for them?

The Target up on Peoria and 43rd Ave in Glendale, AZ has 3 Hot Rods, 2 Scourge, and a handful of Thrusts. I bought Hot Rod and Thrust. I'd report a sighting but I don't think it's working.

Well, it looks like the Target stores are getting stocked like they should have two weeks before Christmas not the week after but oh well. Where I went today was practically barren Friday except for two SS68 figures and some old Cyberverse stuff. Today, they had every single figure of Kingdom on the shelf. So why am I posting in the SS thread, because motherfucking Buzzworthy Bumblebee, that's why. I was hoping to pick up the other SS86 figure, Blurr since the app said he was in stock. When I arrived all the SS space and then some was taking over by the BBB stuff. Since it is a bunch of SS rereleases that makes sense but holy shit there is only so much shelf space.

I picked up a couple bees yesterday and finally had a chance to open them up and check them out.

20210103_133013.jpg


I haven't had any prior experience with either mold yet, and both are pretty nice. I'd put SS74 bee a bit better than SS15 bee. SS15 does have a similar paint match issue as Earthrise Sunstreaker, but I do like the mold and was glad to get it at $20 and without having to pay for all the extras I wouldn't have used anyway. SS74 bee is outstanding. It has a similar overall transformation as SS15, but better. I also like that they went away from removing the whole arm for the arm cannon. Then again, you can give SS15 a butt-hand, so there is that.
