Transformers Studio Series Wave 3 is slowly tricking in the US but it had not been found in Canada yet. That has now changed since fellow Seibertronian Kanrabat has found this wave at a Walmart in Laval, Canada. This is a rather particular wave since it is the first to incorporate toys from the current Bumblebee film in this line centered around toys of previous films. The new toys in this wave include Volkswagen Bumblebee, Dark of the Moon Ratchet and Shadow Raider. Thsese were priced at $29.99 CAD. The case contents can be found below:

CROWBAR X 1
BUMBLEBEE X 3
RATCHET X 2
RAIDER X 2

So that Ratchet was the DOTM One? I should have included him in the picture as well.

Y'know, Hasbro really needs to release a Studio Series figure of Starscream Blitzwing. Then they can redeco/retool it into Skywarp, Thundercracker, Ramjet, Thrust, Dirge, Sunstorm, Acid Storm, Slipstream and Red Wing, and then everyone would be happy.

Having seen the trailers, I will be really disappointed if we don't get a SS Shatter and Blitzwing to go with Dropkick, and even more disappointed if we don't get muscle far versions to go with the copter and jet versions of Shatter and Dropkick.

I think we will get other versions of Shatter and Dropkick, and one of Blitzwing. Though I would like to see if he's a triple changer but rumours about the movie aren't optimistic about him surviving long enough.

Uh I wouldn't. I frickin' hate all those lazy repaints of seekers. Especially Acid Storm, Sunstorm and all those other colouring error ones. I like how it is now with Starscream and Thundercracker being completely different figures.

Anyways I've had to give up on my £33.99 VW Bee I ordered well over a month ago from eBay as it never turned up and I have to wait til Oct 4th before I can try claim my money back. I've now ordered one from Amazon.co.uk for £23.97 cos they're more available now and should be here by Saturday though my enthusiasm for the figure has decreased somewhat because my ethusiasm for the film has decreased a LOT (and if they start putting blocky G1-style bots into Studio Series I will be extremely annoyed, that's what all that Titans/PotP/Siege stuff is for that I generally don't bother with).

I wouldn’t mind an SS Blitzwing being retooled into Skywarp for SS, that way we’d have a Starscream, Thundercracker, and Skywarp all with different molds, which I think is pretty cool.

I just want studio series versions of all 3 main cons from the movie. And I want muscle car alt modes.

Well, post trailer I am definitely also on board for a Studio Series Shatter and 'Blitzwing' (I would probably use him as Ramjet or someone else), and have now added Acid Storm (or whatever that green Seeker's name will be) to my SS false hopes/bucket list along with Trench, because I know neither of them will actually get figures.

Same, especially since it would be the ideal alt mode to form their chest.

While a lot of fans would like more Studio Series figures for characters from the Bumblebee movie, we have not seen new listings for characters like Shatter, Blitzwing or another Dripkick in his muscle car alt mode. Instead, we have found, thanks to Scotty P, a listing for a Studio Series Cogman. While this might be a new mold, the fact that there is such a strong link between the Studio Series and the TLK Premier Series line leads to the idea that this might simply be the same Cogman mld from that line reoffered, especially since the wave containing Cogman was skipped by the primary retailer market in the US (ie. Toysrus, Walmart, Target).

Along with Cogman, we remind you that there are also listings for an upcoming Drift, Scrapmetal and Hightower figure.

Here are the Amazon links below

Cogman
Drift
Scrapmetal
Hightower

Interesting, I would certainly pick up a cogman, though I do wonder when the studio series will cover the other characters from the bumblebee movie :-? Though trying to second guess hasbro is a lesson in futility.

Yep, I've moved on from trying to figure out the plan. I'm just happy when I get stuff I like and keep my mouth and wallet shut when I don't.

To be honest, while I want toysof all these bumblebee movie characters, seeing the Bumblebee makes me think its better we wait. At least now Hasbro has the full CG models and has a line where they can release these characters later. In most cases, the second toy of a character is better than the previous (Knight Optimus Prime, Hound, Crosshairs, Leader Prime from the early films, ect).

That is true, still feels like a marketing misstep, but as long as we do get them eventually.

To be fair, all the marketting is going towards the toys aimed at younger kids. This film is aimed at them (more so than the previous) and so is that film's toyline. Hasbro is basically using us (fansites) as the marketting outlet for Studio Series and getting the word out.

While Constructicons would be cool, I can’t help but think they’re a little outside of the size and price point of SS.

That, and I’d still prefer word of Bonecrusher and Hatchet to complete the teams.

Fair Warning, there is not too much to see here, but enough to know what this release entails. The small image from the instruction booklet, found on weibo, shows us that Transformers Studio Series 32 Optimus Prime is indeed the very same voyager Optimus Prime toy we got in wave 1, at least in terms of the general toy. Of course, it is a black and white CAD image so we can't be sure about the colours. We do see that the abdominal area has not been remolded to look like the Dark of the Moon rendition of Optimus but we do see that there is at least one new thing, his gun.

I wouldn't count on it, we never got proper Triple-changing toys for the movie, with the two modes split between two toys.

Also, Devastator in the movie has more components than the 6 or 7 that ended up being released as toys. At the very least, the crane arm has an additional component for the "fingers". And let's not bring up the vehicles that form his... you know... :oops:
