Thanks to Seibertronian Cprime18 and yours truly, we have word that the Studio Series Wave 4 Voyager Revenge of the Fallen Starscream has made its way to US retail! This Starscream is a redeco of the Wave 1 Voyager, done up in his Revenge of the Fallen and Dark of the Moon paintjob that includes a massive amount of Cybertronian tattoos. He also comes with a brand new saw blade accessory that replaces his missile launcher accessory. The saw blade is translucent orange and is very nice in hand.

These figures were found in a Walmart in San Antonio, Texas and a Target in Altoona, Pennsylvania. Of note here is that the Starscream found in Target was on sale for $27.99 instead of the standard $29.99, as were all the voyager class figures in that store.

Check out the images below, and let us know what you think of these figures in the comments section below!

I like it except for the black goatee thing around his mouth. What's up with that? It's very distracting to me and I can't see his face properly because of it.

I think it might be to make his mouth more noticeable. It's kind of distracting now that you mention it.

I don't know, but I really like it. it adds some nice color.

I took some of my other SS guys and movie Megs out to finally take some group shots. Sorry the Megs picture is kinda crappy, it looked far better on my phone even looking at it in the gallery:

I still prefer the first SS Screamer release. That deco is gorgeous and the paint has a lovely stain finish. Either way it's a great mold and representation of the character. Also my first Movie Starscream.

Agreed, I prefer the MV1 version, but you really can't go wrong either way. It does bug me a little bit that ROTF Screamer's missing the tattoos on his one leg, though.

Also, what's everyone's thoughts on SS Brawl? I was initially more interested in ROTF Megatron for wave 2, but with DOTM Megatron coming I don't think I need the ROTF version.

I think he's fine. I preffer the leader as a toy but this one works really well. Nice scale and I always encourage new molds.

So far, Hasbro was the only company to release extra exclusives as part of the Studio Series line, which is why the numbering got derailed. They released Thundercracker and a slew of exclusive Bumblebee toys, while Takara simply released the mainline toys. Well, the have now announced their first exclusive numbered as SS EX. As one might guess, it is a Bumblebee but not one that has been released in the US. Instead it is the Volkswagen deluxe mold done in a rusty deco. The full name is Transformers SS EX 1967 Rusty Bumblebee.

You can see an image below. It is part of the movie campaign for the Bumblebee movie's Japanese release in March. You must buy your tickets in advance at a 7 Eleven as a prerequisite for owning this figure. Another exclusive Bumblebee item linked to advanced tickets purchases is a Bumblebee Kewpie keychain. This is a Japanese doll dressed in a Bumblebee costume which may be of interest to a few members of our community who also collect these types of dolls. You can see a video below.

Going back to the Studio Series toys, we have in package images of the 5th wave of deluxes. This wave has also been labelled as Wave 1 2019 by Hasbro. It includes Clunker Bumblebee, Crankcase, Barricade, Sideswipe and WWII Bumblebee. This wave should be out January 2019 in stores.

On the side, that would make him have a toy in the standard Deluxe, Voyager and Leader Classes, like Optimus Prime, Megatron and Ironhide. How about that?

SS EX 1967 Rusty Bumblebee


The name is hilarious. If only it had been a 1969 version. LOL.

Right here. It uses the original 18 Bumblebee as a placeholder.

Every time I see images of SS Crankcase, I die a little inside. I can't wait to see his package where it brags about his "big screen accuracy"... :roll:

Nope, that's the rusty version, it's just very light on the rust. Look at the bottom of the door, under the headlight, and the edges of the hood.

I wish we could have exclusives like this in the US. A slight nitpick I havr is that I wish there was a little more rust on there but who cares, it's a free figure in Japan. Hasbro might release one on their own anyway, if Clunker Bee is anything to go by. The doll and keychain are cool too.

The figure itself isn't free. The tickets are a requirement, but you still need to pay to get him.

Hasbro have been doing lots of SS exclusives, as the article mentions, while the SS-EX 1969 Rusty Trombone BB is only Takara's first.

I never got the leader, but he is better than the deluxe. The arms are a bit wonky with the tank turret kibble, and I wish you could unpeg his main gun for him to hold instead of sit on his back hanging down, but he's pretty solid

Pretty much this. I would have liked it if his turret could turn in tank mode and if he had ankle rockers, but he's still a very fun toy, and astonishingly movie accurate for a retail Voyager. Also his transformation is pretty intuitive which is nice.
