The case contents for Studio Series wave 4 deluxes has been revealed showing us what is in store for our neighbouring shelves. Firstly, no one will have trouble finding Dropkick who is packed three per case of eight. As for KSI Sentry, he is shortpacked with only being there once per case, but this is a redeco of a character that never appeared onscreen so it is probable that Hasbro anticipates a lower demand. DOTM Ratchet, Jazz and VW Bumblebee are rereleased for those who could not find them yet, and to ensure that the titular character will be found on shelves when the Bumblebee movie is out.

This info comes to us from Robot Kingdom which also reports the wave to start shipping on 1st November 2018. The wave 4 voyagers come out at the same time and they are evenly packed between ROTF Megaron and Starscream.

Deluxe

DELUXE JAZZ x1
DELUXE BUMBLEBEE x2
DELUXE RATCHET x1
DELUXE DROPKICK x3
DELUXE KSI SENTRY x1

Voyager

VOYAGER MEGATRON x1
VOYAGER ROTF STARSCREAM x1

Ugh, so much for easy army-building the KSI Sentry. I assumed he would have been packaged like Stinger and Crowbar.

Also why does this mold seem to have the shoulderpads transformed differently in each picture I see? A lot of them have them unfolded and pointing up, some have them pointing up but using the joints to push them down and back a bit and I've been having them folded over the front of the shoulders and angled slightly inwards. I'm confused as to what the official one is so just went with the one that looked best to me. Sometimes the torso and head area is transformed a bit weirdly too and photos of that put me off the figure at first til i saw better ones and got the figure myself and now I'm a big fan of it (though wish the wheels on the legs folded in). Sometimes see the black bit on the back where the star things attach often configured differently too.

Shortpacked toys can be easy to find if there is lack of interest. Moonracer has been quite easy to find in the POTP line.

Good news, one of my local Walmarts just got in Deluxe wave 4 (despite never getting waves 2 or 3) and a price drop came with it.

Maybe I'll pick up a couple of these at the lower price. Unfortunately these are the only Transformers that got a Rollback.

Ah, sorry, got my waves mixed up. :oops: I thought the Bee movie stuff started with wave 4. I'm really just half paying attention to SS since they're rarely in stock anywhere here.

As it adds more credibility... price drop also seen here at this Walmart. Though, we are still stuck on Wave 1. Yay... :BANG_HEAD:

Yeah, Shadow Raider was there and from what I can tell he only appeared in wave 3.

Confirmed here as well via the Walmart app. Some of the stores for some of the figures show the exact same price, but only the ones reporting as in stock in store (online prices remain at MSRP).

In the end, the planned B-Day gift for my friend, SS Brawl, I'll keep it for myself. He hate when transforming tanks don't have working threads but fake ones that separate when transforming.
So far, only Super Gobot Destroyer achieved such a feat. Armada Scavenger is not really a tank and CW Leader Megatron cheat by having 4 threads instead of 2. Unless I'm wrong and there's more?
I'll give him something else.

So, I kept Brawl. And know what? No regrets, he's a pretty swell guy! He look great, have kibbles to the bare minimum, and he transform like a charm without glancing once at the instructions. I did saw a video review before but still.

On another thing, I'm pretty pleased that Jazz is coming back, even shortpacked. This will give me a chance to finally use my raincheck on him.

Beast Wars Rampage's tank mode had working treads in its day.

That's pretty nice.
However, it's far from a "real" tank.

Armada Scavenger is the best one that nailed it so far. Even if the articulation would be limited, the same concept should be taken to make a realistic tank. The "threads limbs" could be the arms or the legs.

You never said it had to be. You just said "tank", which Rampage indisputably turns into as his third mode, as a "crab tank" is still some kind of "tank". ;)

I should have pointed out that my friend can't stand Cybertronian or weird designs. He's also adamant about vehicle scale. Also, planes must have a perfectly clean underside.


Yeah, the "winning conditions" are a bit hard to acheive.

Yikes. He might as well just get into model collecting. ;)

Oh but he do love when the thing transform. Not ROTF complicated of course. He's also a #1 combiner fan. The robot can be anything, as long that the vehicle scaling make sense. No Munky either.

If HASTAK would ever make a SS Devastator with all voyager components that combine and each with individual bot mode, he would be so exited! And me too also.

He likes combiners but also good vehicle scaling? Bruticus must be kinda confusing then.


Can't say I'm bothered about working treads myself. Not on a transforming toy anyways. Just limits the heck out of the design when a 'real' Transformer could likely handle seperating tank treads for robot mode and reconnecting them when it turns into vehicle form. I may as well ask why don't all car Transformers have working doors when that's an even more basic feature?

That's what I told him. To have a good robot, compromises must be made. It's a rule.
Personally, as long that the compromise don't completely ruin the look of the vehicle, I'm fine with it. I can forgive the square-bot-with-a-plane-backpack. Universe Silverbolt is a prime example but I love the toy because it's ridiculously over the top. But What I just cannot forgive are ridiculous visible hands and head syndromes. Like, completely exposed limbs that don't even try to hide. As in the hands on the ROTF voyager Starscream or the head of Energon Ironhide. The only completely visible head syndrome that I do like is when a transformers is driving himself like Armada Sideswipe.

I think hasbro is doing a pretty good job with the distribution and the case contents of the Studio series figures. I have now seen all the figures through wave 3 at retail with an Ironhide sighting this weekend, and I have had ample opportunity to catch any one of them by seeing them multiple times.

I really enjoy the line, and it's been nice seeing everything in stores and the wave are fairly evenly balanced and not packed full every wave.

I finally opened up SS Ironhide, and. . . wow.

He's awesome

I've waited so long for a definitive Ironhide, and this gets everything right. The proportions are spot-on (something past Ironhides haven't been able to replicate), and his head sculpt is one of the best (if not the best) I've seen on a Transformer. The cannons are scaled right, and he just looks like he walked right off the screen. The bumper in robot mode isn't really that much of an issue for me, especially since Ironhide does have some bits that stick out of his torso in that area, so I'm fine with it.

Anyway, Ironhide's in the running for my favorite studio series figure without a doubt ;)^
