while some fans are upset at Transformers Studio Series thrust for not being red, Armada fans are pleased with the homage. Plus, this is a different thrust from either, being part of the Bumblebee movie and not being a conehead, but having a triangle placed behind his head instead. If you do want him, the toy is now available to ship from Target.com, this is the link:

We thank TF-fan kev777 and D-Maximus Primal for letting us know. The toy was also found, along with his wavemate Wreck-Gar, on shelves at Walmarts in Missouri and Louisianna, among other places. The photo below comes from Starscream229

Would have been great to have scored Wreck-Gar! But I have hardly seen SS86 figs around Oregon. I'd also love a BW Megatron, but all I saw was T-Wrecks....

T-Wrecks is very shiny. :x Any version of the mold is worth a look.

I hope the UK gets these soon. Then all my Transformers will get bikes...

So you end up having these figures with WAY simpler engineering than any previous movie line, even 2007, and look very cheap on top of it because of the lack of paint.


This is actually even worse than the original AoE release. They changed up the plastic colors and made things worse! I was checking mine against the AoE deluxe gallery here and for AoE, they used 4 plastic colors, clear, black, yellow and dark grey. For this release the changed the missile from black to yellow and made most of the grey parts black, making things even more bland. On top of that, they skipped out on the silver paint on his toes, and it wouldn't surprise me if they skipped another paint detail or 2 somewhere.

That's because it's not a reissue of the vanilla AOE High Octane Bumblebee, but specifically a reissue of the slightly redecoed version of High Octane Bumblebee that was instead included with the Bumblebee Evolution 2-pack with Movie 1 1977 Camaro Bumblebee and AOE 2017 Camaro Bumblebee, both of which were also slightly redecoed from their original releases.

Thanks, that makes sense. Oddly enough that 3-pack keeps coming up on a target search on me, yep that's the deco. Man it is even worse than the vanilla original release deco-wise.

Argh, bummer on more paint and plastic type confirmations on High Octane Bee. He really needed a new mold, why did they have to reuse that one? That might be the weakest Bee figure I own.

I hope my thrust actually arrives. Mine shipped yesterday at 7am, but as of right now, it still only shows "label created", making me fear an issue

I never had High Octane Bee and it's interest me. But to get it, I either have to buy a multipack of figures I don't want, or go for the original on Ebay and pay quadruple of the OG price.

Sigh. #-o

Car mode is nice on High Octane Bee, I will give it that, that that is about all that is nice.

I got a Fedex tracking number earlier today for my Thrust but is also just in the label created status. Fingers crossed. I like that mold more than I thought I would.

I wouldn't have been entirely opposed if it was just for Buzzworthy, but the fact that it is a numbered release with (presumably) a repack in the mainline coming up is just terrible. It's a really cool and unique design for movie Bee, but it seems like it'll never have a good figure. . .

I've been tempted to paint my HO Bee since it's really lacking, but I really think that mold is just not worth painting.

I recently sold my original High Octane Bee on Ebay, and while I don't plan on getting the re-issue, it's a shame they didn't at least spruce it up a bit with some paint on the lower torso and legs.

Already done in Takara's MB line.
And of course, it's worth a fortune.

No, Movie the Best did not have High Octane Bumblebee. Just DOTM, TLK, and normal AOE Bumblebee.

And a new mini-figure that came with AOE Strafe.

I got my SS Thrust tonight, and I figured I'd give some quick thoughts on him.

first off, the robot mode is gorgeous. I love the Blitzwing gas-mask head, it looks so great on the mold, and the new conehead piece is really sweet. It adds new character to a familiar mold. Mind you, it does inhibit head articulation, rendering side to side views pretty non-existent.

The colors on this are also really nice. The greens are a good contrast to the creamy color, and it is spaced out enough to be very effective. Outside of the limited head articulation and the gun needing a longer handle to be held proper, I have no complaints about the robot mode.

Transformation is the same as Starscream, but you have to be a bit careful with the new cone, it gets in the way a little bit, but it's not too hard to work around. Alt mode is similarly nicely done and colored, and the greens with the yellow cockpit really shine here. It's just a lot of fun.

Image

In conclusion, if you like the Bumblebee movie, you like Armada Thrust, or you just like fun transformers, get this guy. He is well worth your effort. He's really cool.

I lucked into the Barricade and Bumblebee set yesterday! This makes me very happy since I now only need 2 regular release SS figures: DotM Ratchet and 2007 Starscream! This set in particular will remain in vehicle modes on the shelves, and the rotary weapon on Barricade will go to my first one so he can dual wield.

Also of note, new Barricade lacks the "To Punish and Enslave" slogan on the side.

Also, mid-transformation seeker is hilarious

Amazon just shipped my SS 74 BB & Sam.

Hopefully it will be here soon.

I can't remember the last TF before this mold (Screamer, Blitzwing, Thrust) that had a robot mode which I loved so much yet a vehicle mode that I couldn't stand.

If I ever find them on sale, I'll be picking up all 3 of them. But as they are, to me they're not worth $30 each.

With a listing for DOTM core class Laserbeak, I'm curious what you all are hoping for with core class in SS.

I'm still trying to wrap my head around how it'll work scaling wise - SS scale Laserbeak is really, really tiny, and I have no idea how they'd handle something like Frenzy - I think Frenzy would have to be a tiny static figure (or maybe minimal articulation) to work in SS scale.

However, I think Scorponok is a good fit for core class, and I really like some other ideas I've heard like Oreobot and Dispensor.

Also, do you think it'll be pink Bumblebee Laserbeak? I actually really like this idea.

Honestly, I'm just really happy we have a new listing for something SS Bayverse! We hung onto those ROTF Bee/Jolt/Grindor listings for over a year.

I think Mohawk, the Twins (let me live in denial :lol: ), Squeeks, and maybe slightly improved Arcee gals would be good uses for a new SS Core class
