There is an absolutely gorgeous display of Studio Series figures at Tokyo Comic-Con 2018 right now. They arranged the figures per film so there are six seperate displays (with some extras to fill out the TLK display). The main attraction here is the full reveal of leader Dark of the Moon Mgatron. This is the full finished figure, so this gives us a perfect idea of how he will look like when he comes out next year in the second quarter. He does still have those boxy lower legs, as expected, but he looks rather magnificent (aside from the tarp's fabric pattern), and Igor is there too. We also get a great look at Jetfire and his monstrously sized face. The images come from Twitter user @QVx9l3YcRlSEntk.

Oh my god how many times do I have to explain retails to people?! Stores order their own stuff! Wave one is directly forced into stores and after that the stores order future waves themselves. It’s not hasbro a fault if retailers are sitting on a ton of old stuff it’s the store itself. Hasbros drive like everyone else is to make money. It’s not their fault if your store is sitting on old waves because they don’t control that.

Did you buy them at same time or do you just always carry Blackout about with you? And what should the scale be here? Should there be a bigger difference size-wise?

Plus I figured that scale was only relevant to robot scale and not vehicle mode.

Those are fantastic displays and the costructicons are looking very fine.

Yeah I go an extra five miles or so to the store I saw Dropkick/KSI Sentry at because they actually tend to move product, therefore they're more likely to have newer stuff. Thinking of other recent stuff, this same Target is one of only a few where I ever saw the last wave of RiD Crash Combiners.

why not just wait for toys to show up on amazon. With these studio series toys, for isntance, Amazon got them before brick and mortar. Retail is changing, so why not change with it?


I agree with you and have done just that, but the hunt is part of the fun. Take the hunt away and collecting loses some magic.

I won't speak for everyone else, but I ALSO like to support employment in my community. I get that the money doesn't stay here, but at least the people that live here will have jobs as long as people continue to support retail. Futile though it may be.

Anyways, those legs on Megatron really bum me out. The alt mode looks awesome, though.

Is that not roughly correct?
Blackout is a MH-53 Pave Low at 28 meters long and 7.6 meters high.
Dropkick is a Bell AH-1 SuperCobra at 17.7 meters long and 4.19 meters high.

I live in Des Moines which has 7 targets and 7 or 8 Walmart’s(it’s part of my job to know these things nexuses I’m a vendor) and I know exactly which ones move faster and which ones don’t. Mileage will vary per store. There’s two by residence that get the new waves relatively quick so I’ve been scoping them out very few days and both were the ones I saw KSI and Dropkick.

For some people online retail might be the best but I personally enjoy going out and finding them. The reasons online retailers have and get stuff faster than some actual stores is because they’re run by nerds or they just know what sell. Transformers are a 4 foot block in a store that’s over 15-20,000 square feet. To them it’s one of over 5,000 products they carry

What big gun? Last photos I saw only showed him having a big axe and he was still lacking the big gun from the movie. Did I miss something?

Well, the MH-53 is 88' and the SuperCobra is 53'.
Of course, that's still way too huge compared to a muscle car but the Bumblebee movie's director seems to be something of a Geewunner without regard for the movieverse's established size rules (it's even worse of a size cheat than Evasion-mode Optimus).

Top left you can see him holding a huge weapon of Jetfire parts with his right arm.

Also they have the first SS Prime on the right and you can see how much brighter the new one combined to Jetfire on the left is. Forearms on the new one are worrying me a bit. Hoping just mistransformed or something. They look fine in the promo pics.

Thanks. It's still no more accurate than the ROTF Leaders' combo, it seems to be a case of trading off some inaccuracies for others. And Jetfire still suffers a bit for it but it seems like possibly less. It is good to have confirmation that they included the BFG - that was rather conspicuous by its absence in earlier photos.

As for the forearms, that looks to be a case of the panels being reconfigured halfway to vehicle mode to aid in the combination.

Yeah, also there are places where you can get the latest Seige and Studio Series figures, Hasbro Toy Shop, Amazon, Ebay, etc.
Also I work at a Toy Shop and it's not the individual stores that make the orders, we get boxes of stuff sent from the big warehouses, some boxes have collections of random toys for different parts of the shop, so if you're upset with the content of your shops, complain to the head office, don't take it out on us employees.

Well, those Constructicons look...stupid.

So is Studio Series just going to be the Catch-all for all movie toys now? I’m fine with that, but boy howdy did the quality take a bit of a dive there.

Maybe it’s just my expectations being too high; after years of dreaming for an actually decent Bonecrusher figure, it probably would never have held up anyway.

Well, at this point it does seem to have wound up with as much Bumblebee Movie content as the actual Bumblebee Movie line, if not more. Hasbro might wanna consider repackaging.

The Constructicons look stupid because the Studio Series designers A. seem to have a complexity aversion and B. Insisted on (or were shackled with the mandate of) making ROTF 'Structies that both had independent robot modes and combine to form Devastator.

Is this Bonecrusher at least better than the Movie 1 Deluxe? Or about the same?

I think bonecrusher is better.

I think the Constructicons look good. If I don't get them it's mainly due to the cost of having to buy the whole team. They look a lot more fun to me than their G1 counterparts ever did (was never fond of those toys).

Bonecrusher looks good to me too. His 2007 Deluxe figure was fine and a fun toy but just too small. This one looks a lot better for scale. And since he's not part of Devastator I can just buy him on his own to fight Prime. Finally. :D

Anyways that me my final say til new photos and stuff appear. Have a good weekend, folks. :D

Places like Walmart’s and targets do control their stock though. I’ve been in retail for 17 years since I was a kid and have dealt with Walmart’s and targets as a vendor for 10 years and have full blown witnessed the managers tell the employees “do not order anymore Toys until we get through the 6 pallets of nerf guns” I’ve seen and heard them refuse to order stuff because they sit on so much nerf, marvel and Star Wars toys. One of my friends at a target and I used to complain to him about never having transformers and he’s told me “we’re not ordering anything till we get rid of all the Star Wars stuff”

Anytime you see someone with a scanner gun st a Walmart, Target or even grocery store they doing their inventory and making the orders. I know because I made friend with those people so they’d let me know when they’d order the new waves.

So far, not much SS figures interested me. But I'll ready my wallet for ALL the Constructicons and WW2 Bee.
