Don't you just love it when Transformers are in stock? Well now that's the case for the entire wave 4 of Transformers Studio Series. The only new releases in wave 4 constist of Voyager Revenge of the Fallen Starscream, KSI Sentry and Dropkick. The deluxes are both just under $20 while Starscream is $29.99.

Dropkick is set to star as one of the two main Decepticons in the Bumblebee film due out his December, transforming into both a helicopter and muscle car. This Studio Series figure decides to stick to just his helicopter mode instead of trying to do the triple changing deluxe class gimmick. The figure is done in a mostly light blue, which doesn't fully match up with the colors we have seen in the trailers, but is still nice nonetheless.

KSI Sentry is a blue redeco and a slight retool of Stinger who was released back as part of the first wave of Studio Series Deluxes.

Here are the links to pick them up:

ugh, just couldn't bring myself to pull the trigger on either of them, they just don't do anything for me, dropkick looks pretty cool, but I've heard all of his hinges are super tight which I think is going to lead to a ton of stress marks considering the plastic looks pretty thin on all of his tiny parts. With siege being here (kinda) and the fact that I just got predaking and have mp bw megs on pre-order, I gotta pick and choose, and dropkick being the wrong color and the sentry drone just being meh, gonna use the money to get the siege deluxes when they show up :-?

If you're okay with the front of the boat having a hole in it ;)

Got Sentry, should be here Saturday. I've wanted him since his original reveal, I like the Stinger mold and the shade of blue they used looks great, along with the new head. I'm a little iffy on Dropkick too, honestly he doesn't look quite as good as the Studio Shatter that got revealed but I'll make a decision when/if I see him in person. That's what made me grab Shadow Raider though, finally found him at Walmart and despite his head fitting worryingly tight he's great.

Really glad that they fixed the awful prototype style grey plastic on his hips from the last batch of stock photos.

Wait. Where did this WW2 Bumblebee come from? That's not his alt mode in TF5.

It's based on the World War II scene that was seen in that movie, even though the vehicle mode is inaccurate to that scene.

While Hasbro has been giving us loads of Transformers Studio Series exclusives, Takara has waited until now to give us their first. It is SS-EX 1967 Rusty Bumblebee. It can be ordered now either with a movie ticket (for about $45 USD) or without (for about $35 USD). The listings give us official images of the figure where we can see that the rust is not painted (nor tampoed) but rather digitally printed, similar to the deco on recent Baest Wars MPs and TLK Infernocus.

Here are the listings for those living in Japan (or using a forwarding service) to order this item:

Figure alone: https://7net.omni7.jp/detail/1400709375

Nice but why no rust on the bot mode?
That's a swing and miss for me.

Sadly, WWII Bee looks to be a huge pass.

Dunno. But logic dictate that damage on the vehicle should carry on to the bot mode. For the sake of consistency.

Not unless his robot mode was fine when he scanned a rusty old VW. ;)

It comes from them looking at Josh Nizzi's concept art instead of the movie. At least he's not out yet so it's a good time to tell Hasbro "Wrong, do it again."

Of course she can, she contributes nothing to the boat.

She contributes part of the prow. But to be fair, the likes of Big Convoy and AoE Leader Prime are just as much shellformers as she is. And unlike the latter, Thunderblast has style and charm to her. She can also pose:

T-Blast go beyond shellforming though. She's basically a PRETENDER. The boat part only need to separate.
And I love her because of that. It's silly, yes, but it's one TF that I'll never get rid of. :x

AoE Galvatron is a better analogy to T-Blast than Big Convoy and AoE leader Optimus. Him too, his shell is just a huge single block that fold on his back. Only his legs stick out. Still ove him to bits though.

Did they even transform in the movie? And Hasbro would have no reason to go back and restart from square one.
