We have for you below a review of the upcoming Transformers deluxe Rise of the Beasts Wheeljack. It seems like reports of removable glasses were greatly exaggerated. While they probably can be removed with force, they are not meant to be removeable.
The video is from PrimevsPrime.
He and other fans were able to procure this toy early through asian online marketplaces like this one: https://shopee.ph/Hasbro-Transformers-L ... V06AwhRwFM

There will be a Studio Series release of Wheeljack as well but we have not seen it as it probably is not coming out in the first wave of Studio Series toys from the Rise of the Beasts line.

I still find that Wheeljack toy to be almost perfect. My only beef is the scale of the vehicle may be too small. But that ain't a dealbreaker for me and he will be a sure purchase. I hope Toyhax will come up with a cool Reprolabels sheet to turn him into a new character. Maybe even with a beard we can clip on for the full hippie look. :-?

A definite peg-warmer, assuming you find it anywhere at all. I should be grateful to Hasblo for doing everything then can to help me save money.

All right. Try this out. Just call him "Larry Robotson".
This is not Wheeljack, but a brand new character, Larry Robotson.

So, as Larry Robotson, the design, altmode, and bot mode are much better, right?

And if you're so closed-minded that you just refuse to see it as it's own thing, that's on you. If you take pleasure in hating things, you do you. ¯\_( ͡°ヮ ͡°)_/¯

Wheeljack continues to look great, I eagerly anticipate him.

If they used him as a base for Canopy, I would be OK with that, even if I think SS Long Haul would be a better base, maybe as a selects repaint.

Also hoping his alt mode will lead to Dreadbot finally getting a figure.

I dislike it as it's own thing and as any other thing. Having a different opinion than yours isn't closed-minded. It means I think for myself and have come to an opposite and equally valid viewpoint.

I don't believe you at all. If that character would have been presented as Larry Robotson instead of Wheeljack, you would never had taking it as a "personal insult" and hated it. At worse you would just have been indifferent.

Fortunately for me, what you believe is irrelevant, and had that come out with the name "Larry Robotson," I would have commented that it was given a name as equally moronic as gluing goggles to it's face.

I agree NOT Wheeljack looks okay, unfortunately I simply don't need some bizarre looking bot due to space issues. I've passed up many a Transformers that I have a passing like for due to that fact.
While neat it just doesn't have that "must buy" vibe for me. Then again none of the live actions Movie bots have.

What about ROTF Mindwipe? Random question, I know, but while movie bots were never my Forte, that one was must buy when I first learnt of its existence.

Honestly don't recall ever seeing Mindwipe, then again ROTF was very forgettable.

Looking at the toy the alt mode looks pretty cool, the bot mode though is way to spindly. But I will say he's not the worst movie TF design I've ever seen.

I actually really like movie Hot Rod but I just don't have a big enough interest to justify the space, I'm already running out and I'm not even finished with G1.

Oh man, that SS Hot Rod is a great toy. Really nice Evolution of the traditional G1 hood of car as chest design. And if you like lambos, well this one's for you.
But I'm easy to please. I even like the SS crosshairs for the simple reason that his trenchcoat is well integrated into the alt mode.

It's a movie aimed at nerds that also has a strong Black culture vibe. Urkel was both a nerd and Black. That matches up nicely. I see nothing wrong, here.

We haven't actually seen Wheeljack in the ROTB so accuracy and representation is up in the air at the moment.

Just pointing out that culture has no color.
There's black people all over the world. the world have hundreds of countries. Those countries can have dozens of provinces/counties. Those provinces/counties can have dozens of cities and villages. Those villages can have dozens or hundreds of neighborhood. Those neighborhood can have thousands of families. EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THOSE STEPS CAN HAVE THEIR OWN CULTURE AND SUBCULTURE.
Now repeat this for every single "races". And consider that many, so many of these cultures can be shared and mixed, no matter the color of the skin.

When someone associate a culture to a color, it piss me off to no end. Because that's saying "All of those of the color X are the same." That's textbook genuine racism.

The producers saying "celebrating black/hispanic culture" are either clueless about that fact (like too many others) or they may have been coerced into claiming that just so they can earn their ESG money.

Also, Eckel wasn't the only one who had the "Nerd look". He just had the classic Nerd look like so many had before him. But to be honest, I think it's a case of "chicken and egg" here.

Technically just ignorance for the vast amount of people simply because they don't know anything beyond their own borders. And actually you can attribute color to some cultures because they've never interbred with anyone outside their race. There are plenty of culture on this Earth who are still only one color due to the fact they have no interaction with the outside world.

A lot of people want to blame racism on everything it seems maybe because they need to create a villain to overcome as their life lacks anything of real substance. I'd call it more of people being Nationalists or Culturalists, because across the globe you have several people who want to keep it status quo and not allow foreigners into their circle. And most definitely not allow them to have any say in their policy making for their Country. Some in the U.S. even try to equate not allowing illegal immigrants in as being racist, when plenty of other Countries have borders and deny entry unless you have proper documents. And they almost never allow any immigrant to dictate policies. But nothing is ever said about that.

Your comment reads as someone who also only has one box to put people in while trying to state the opposite.

I know there's culture's that are ethno-centric.

But I'm speaking about "-INSERT COLOR- culture" specifically.

Hoh, and the ethno-centrists will never, ever refer to themselves as a "color". They'll refer to themselves as members of a nationality or a tribe.

"-Insert color- culture" make no sense and is infuriating.
Just take the "African American" for example. There's huge cultural differences between Harlem and New Orleans.

As for "races", anything goes it seems. Often with tragic results.
Ask the Hutu and the Tutsi.

So following the idea that Studio Series is going to have a retool of OP from the Bee movie what do you guys think OP would look like in this line? Just going by the two different Cheetors we've seen my guess is it could be a pretty wild difference :-?

I'll be surprised if SS ROTB Optimus will merely be a retool.
From the truck alone, I expect this Optimus to be a pretty meaty boy. So, a brand new mold.

There's that Smash Changers Optimus Prime toy in the Cyberverse line that was supposed to be in the Rise of the Beasts line proper.

The Prime we've seen in trailers in both robot and truck mode is just a slightly recolored Bumblebee movie Prime.

I expect he may upgrade to the chunkier alt mode we got in Cyberverse at some point in the movie, so the other figure will be likely following that in what should be an entirely new mold.

There is no SS ROTB Optimus. There will be a voyager ROTB Optimus released exclusively in the Buzzworthy line though. And it being that line, and a Voyager, I am not expecting a new mold

Oh well, a reissue of the Beetimus would still be nice, considering its absurd eBay price.
Even better if it would ne a Nemesis repaint.

I think at best it'll be SS Voyager Bee movie Prime with some new parts to represent the extra junk on ROTB Prime.

I agree. Bird Power Bumblebee would be a more appropriate name.

I'd expect a Beast Mode Bumblebee, to actually transform into some kind of beast..

The phrase "Beast Mode" will probably be used in the movie, so its use here is likely just for marketing purposes and brand recognizability.

Then, from comicbook.com, we have our first look at Eagle Beast Mode Bumblebee. It turns out, this still transforms into a Camaro, but he also has a bird gimmick feature.

Here is the item description:

(Ages 6 and Up | Approx. Retail Price: $49.99 | Available: July 2023)

Insert Chainsaw Man reference here.

Seriously though, these are all really cute, I may see if my nephew would have any interest in one or more of them when they're out.

The Battlemasters are my favorites right now.

Even if the combination is reminiscent of the clunky Spark Armor Cyberverse toys, any dual combining in TFs that small speaks to me.

Add in the Battlemasters, and this line is going to add up to me spending a lot more than I thought just a week ago.

Almost all of them look like Chinese rip-offs of Happy Meal toys.

25 new reveals and you'd think statistically one would be good, but no, they're all dogshit for 6 yo's. We've reached the period of time where mainline iconic characters are now shelfwarmers. The only company profiting off this is Ollie's.

Rhinox and Rhinox Gattling gun battle master look awesome. Would like 2 pair those 2 up.

Cheetor Sword is also pretty cool. As is Chainclaw chainsaw.


So there's Skullcruncher gun and armor figures.
and tigatron Crossbow and Armor figures.

Interesting that Rhinox is both a full figure and a battle master too.
And one would assume Cheetor will get a figure in the same size class as Rhinox.
Does that mean there's gonna be a Battlemaster Primal?
