Both Nathaniel Prime and Overcracker have let us know that there is a video review of Studio Series 18 Deluxe Volkswagen Bumblebee. This review comes to us from Peaugh. We had a transformation video already but now we get an English language review for this very anticipated figure. This is the first release of this mold and we will be seeing it again in gold for the "exclusive" Retro Rock Garage Vol. 2 set. This toy should be found in stores soon as the shipping date from Robot Kingdom is September 28. Bumblebee will be 3 per case so there should be no problem finding him. Here is the entire case content:

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

I've been all about Cobra Dropkick since he was first revealed but, man, that face - rather, where is his face?

Some more shots of Brawl from work on Friday. I really like the attention to detail and the massive amount of guns. Movie designs are my favorite.

also, still super stoked for WWII Bee. That is fantastic.

Fellow Transformers fan and toy reviewer on YouTube TFA1024 - The Transformers Addict has reached out to us with video reviews for two new figures from the Studio Series toyline of live action movie figures - specifically, we're talking about StudSer 16 Ratchet (in his Dark of the Moon deco) and StudSer 17 Shadow Raider, the orange Lockdown redeco with the visor mask seen in Age of Extinction. Both figures were first seen at the San Diego Comic Con 2018 Hasbro booth.

The two reviews have been embedded below for your viewing convenience, and show off the vehicle and robots modes for each, plus some comparisons with previous movie molds that shared the screen with the characters. Check them out!





In addition, TFA1024 also posted a video of the upcoming Studio Series 18 Bumblebee figure where Bumblebee transforms in a Volkswagen Beetle.

They both look good, but the only one I'd must get is Shadow Raider. He looks awesome, maybe even cooler than Lockdown. DOTM Ratchet looks good, but you're only really getting him for the gun, so a pass for me unless I have some sort of discount on him.

I'll tell you this Nathaniel. Ratchet is honestly a lot better in hand. He's tighter (at least my copy is) compred to SS 04 Ratchet and looks strikingly better. Shadow Raider is great in hand as well. At first i was skeptical but after getting him he's a pretty good figure. i recommend both of them if you don't have them already

I'm mixed on Ratchet. I want him for the gun, and while I do like his colors more as they're not eye blinding green, I'm doing the first movie cast, and a few others and that's not how he appeared in the first one. May just pick both up, but at the moment, neither really outweighs the other and I'm trying to avoid getting too many of the same figure

Has there been any explanation for Ironhide's flawed-looking right eye? It looks like his face is drooping or something weird. At first, I thought mine had a mold flaw, but the others I saw also had the same flaw/problem. It looks pretty bad in my opinion.

He has a scar going over his eye in the movie, which that's supposed to represent.I will agree that it looks a little off on the figure though.

Attack on Titan: Predaking Edition.

SS Jazz and Predaking feel so good together, and I am really feeling that Fall of Cybertron trailer where Jazz jumped on Bruticus, and these 2 feel great with that sort of size and I really want to do that pose now. Jazz is perfect for this, and he's a really really good figure in general, I love him!!!!

Yeah it's movie accurate. Not an error. He's a tough old git who's been through tons of battles.

Anyways I found Toys R Us Thundercracker in the Cambridge branch of Forbidden Planet (they also had two Ironhides but i got him already and he's awesome) and my friend was working there so gave me 10% off without me even asking. Sorry for the crap photo. My phone's USB charge port is busted so is off for repairs and this temporary phone is garbage. Anyways yeah she says they got in quite a few of Toys R Us' exclusive toys and such.

Both Canada and the US seem to think the grass is greener across the border when it comes to sightings and distribution. But this time, with Transformers Studio Series Ironhide, both countries have found the toy at the same time. In Canada, Ironhide was found at EB Games in Ontario for $39.99 CAD (or $35.99 with an Edge Membership) by Cybertron.ca member neevnav.

In the US, Ironhide was found at Target in Virginia for $29.99 USD by TFW2005 member clydegoobler.

For those wondering, Ironhide comes packed with wave 1 Optimus Prime. Good luck on the hunt and if you find him, let the community know through our sightings section and sightings forum.

That's funny, I just went to Target today to pick up some allergy medicine and saw that they had Studio Ironhide there, too, so I picked one up today, also. Kind of a nice feeling getting a new figure when I wasn't even looking for one.
