Live from the Hasbro floor at San Diego Comic Con, we have our next round of reveals: Studio Series! The reveals for this line include several repaints and a brand new mold: the Bumblebee VW bug body from the Bumblebee movie! The new figure is based on his look for the upcoming Bumblebee movie, out in December. Also revealed is the new Dark of the Moon styled Ratchet, the voyager Ironhide and tattooed Starscream, an orange decoed Lockdown that sort of reminds us of Blazing Lockdown (now confirmed to be called Shadow Raider!), and a blue Stinger that represents the KSI Sentries from Age of Extinction!

Also of note, that golden Studio Series Bumblebee based on his original movie body from 2007? Well, it appears as though that truly was merely volume 1, as we also have images of the new Studio Series Bumblebee movie Bee in a similar set with Decepticon Uriad and an Autobot Zauru, labeled as Volume 2!

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

Edited with new Images including MPM-6 Ironhide, MPM-5 Barricade, and other Studio Series figures, and now the correct names for Shadow Raider and KSI Sentry!

i just do not like that backpack on the bumblebee for the movie. I was really hyped for this figure but the figure just disappointed me with that backpack. i am willing to give it a second chance with more pictures and reviews from either Emgo or Optibotimus

The SDCC Bumblebee fakeout was clever. Saves them from spoiling the new Bee figure and now makes the set more worth getting. Still probably won’t get it, but now I’m interested.

Lockdown’s new weapon looks suspiciously foldable... I predict that it’s able to extend and attach to Lockdown’s face to make his gunface mode.

Blue Stinger (or Trax, whatever) I would probably buy two of as like army builders for Stinger to lead into battle.

blue stinger? orange lockdown? WTF? Are they trying to do some weird camouflage thing?



I'm Lockdown and I'm as orange as the sun and therefore no one can find me

I'm Stinger and I'm so blue that I'm sad that they gave me this kind or repaint

Can someone explain to me the blue Stinger guy?

EDIT: I looked up Trax (on TFWiki) and it seems to be a cross between that guy and G1 Tracks or something.

Also, as someone else mentioned, this looks like a new set. The cassettes have different decos. (In total 1 original set and 1 Decepticon set?)

The 2007 gold bumblebee was probably not a fake out considering that this versions box says volume 2 while the original one said volume 1

What fakeout? That's a completely different set from the one with the golden classic Camaro. That was Vol. 1 and comes with the normal version of Dial and the Decepticon recolor of Zaur. This is Vol. 2 and comes with the Decepticon recolor of Dial and the normal version of Zaur.

Most likely a representation of one of the KSI-created Decepticons from Age of Extinction. Which particular one though, you got me.

That new Bug Bee is a MUST buy for me. That is, unless it get catastrophic reviews.

Intresting color palette for Lockdown. Would have preferred a green one so that it sorta looked like animated Lockdown. That being said he's got a new weapon and head sculpt so I might buy it to add onto the orginal release. BB Bumblebee looks alright but these photos are doing him no favors (no disrespect to the photographer) The battle mask is a pleasant surprise too. :P

You guys got it wrong, the previous Retro Rock Cafe is Volume 1, with a Decepticon Urauz and an Autobot Dile. This one is Retro Pop Highway, Volume 2, with a Decepticon Uriad and an Autobot Zauru. Different sets.

Maybe the Lockdown is a really weird homage to the Construct-Bots Lockdown that was packed with Hangnail?

Story updated, did not notice it was different in the rush of images

But on a serious note, is it really too much to ask for for the Transformers people to transform their figures properly? Like I'm getting tired of having to wait for reviewers to show it properly themselves. its just bad marketing. the transformers people are showing off their figures poorly causing people like me to be disgusted by that mpm ironhide, due to mistransformation. this is their specialty. Making transformers so if you want to make it right, then show it right so that the fans can actually see the good sides of all the toys and figures that they show off. like people always say, "pls show my good side." i want the transformers to be properly transformed and showed like they should be on their packaging instead of things being misaligned and out of place making the whole figure look ugly and just not worth buying

Also after some observation and checking the wiki: the Volkswagen Bumblebee is in a 2-pack with what appears to be TLK Bumblebee, and Trax comes with some cool claw that attaches to his arm-kibble gun rather than Stinger’s shuriken.

Don't start hating Bee just yet! The backpack is clearly mistransformed, like how it is in the box. It surely folds up more. The new Blue vehicon, I guess was the rumored KSI drone, unless we are getting the KSI BOSS, which would be an easy Nitro retool.That Lockdown is odd, but the Dotm Ratchet has a WAAAY better paintjob on the face! Love all the images, but Hopefully we get pics of that bonecrusher!




Also, Studio Series Longarm anyone? I know he only showed up as a lifeless Truck, but still.....

Holy crap holy crap holy crap.

Ok, let's break this down:

The new VW Bumblebee looks really good and comes with a lot of accessories; there's a second masked head, a sword, and presumably his plasma cannon. He's also apparently packed with a seemingly unaltered TLK Bumblebee for some reason. An evolution 2-pack, it seems. It's unfortunate that the wings don't seem to fold away like they do in the footage we've seen so far, but it still looks good.

Blue Stinger is bizarre, I'll have to rewatch AOE to look for any drones that look like that. The extra spike in the arm cannon looks cool at least.

DOTM Ratchet's gun looks awesome, but he looks really unpainted (even by SS Ratchet standards), I think this is more along the lines of a prototype.

[strike]Sunstreaker[/strike] Yellow Lockdown is really bizarre. that gun he's holding looks like it may function as a facegun.

Anyways, that was. . . unexpected. VW Bee looks good though, so I'm happy!

Hmmmm the Trax isn't what I would of preferred since it doesn't transform into the Chevy Trax like the movie but for what it is, it's pretty neat and actually represents them in general pretty well.

Definitly looks like something that would of been eventually designed by KSI.


I presume that Lockdown is either a new character, a what if character like SS Thundercracker, a representation of one of Lockdown's henchmen from AOE, or it's this other KSI related character given form.


The oh so memorable orange McLaren Decepticon!

We got confirmation from floor-walker Va'al that the blue Stinger repaint is actually a KSI Sentry, and the orange Lockdown repaint is named Shadow Raider. (Not Shadow Raider Lockdown, just Shadow Raider - interesting!) We've updated the article to reflect that now :D

I'm not sure if it was here or at TFW2005 but in a SS Bug Bee photo you can see either the boxes for one Bug and one Camaro hard up against each other, or as a double-pack. That's cool. Not for me though: I promised myself the only SS Bee I'd get would be the Bug!

I got really excited when I saw SS24 Bug Bee's box behind MPM Ironhide! I'm very keen on it except I'm not a fan of the rust effect.

With those colours, they just end up looking like fruity robots

Sure, he's a KSI bot, so just another random grunt at the end of Age of Extinction

Yeah, its a two pack, MOTHERFUCKER!

Yup new character.

With the price hike these have gotten in my neck of the woods, I will only stick to new molds so out of all this only that new Bee is what I will get. its weird because Hasbro was very keen on saying last time that there would be no repaints aside from Thundercracker.
