Fellow Seibertronians! Hot off the heels of the in hand images of Helicopter Drift, we now have a video review of the new Transformers Studio Series SS-46 Car Mode Dropkick! Thanks to fellow Seibertronian TFanPage101, we present to you the first video review of this new figure from YouTube Reviewer Kevin Liu. In the video, Kevin shows off the transformation, detail, and articulation of the snazzy blue 'Con.


This figure, along with Helicopter Drift and Constructicon Hightower, are slated to release in late August.

Will you be trusting this bot enough to take him to your home leader, and finally let him in? Or has he popped one too many indigenous lifeforms for you to handle? Let us know in the discussion below.

Yours truly has discovered some exciting news, this time being about the new Transformers Studio Series SS-45 Age Of Extinction Helicopter Mode Autobot Drift (phew!). Thanks to the TFND Facebook page, we now have in hand images of this new figure to show you. Despite being a retool of the very lackluster (and still shelfwarming) Helicopter Dropkick, this figure manages to pull off an accurate representation of Drift as he appeared in Age Of Extinction. These photos show off the detail of the robot mode, helicopter mode, packaging, and some comparisons with the previous Studio Series Drift, as well as Copter Drift's retool, Dropkick.

This figure is slated to be released late August of this year, along with Car Mode Dropkick and Constructicon Hightower.

Will you be picking up this figure? Are you content with your other Drift(s)? Tell us in the discussion below.


You might have sold me on that Drift w/ dinos set. I actually wish they'd re issue the DOTM (?) blue Bugatti again. I wonder how he'd scale. I know he transformed completely backwards from the "current" Mercedes Drift.

Both Shatter and Dropkick really had some interesting things going on with their conversions. Almost reminiscent of DOTM levels of fiddly. I do wish Hasbro would stop with the unpainted snap-on wheels though.. they just look so cheap... I also understand there's not a whole lot of room to hide the arms on either figure but they're just kind of hanging out down there.

I really don't like it with Siege Shockwave cos that's a completely made up add on that's also rather goofy at times (like when it's a backpack of arms and legs), but at least with DotM Optimus it's an already establshed and much requested add on in all it's configurations.

I rest now. Night. :)


Honestly you read my mind bc I was thinking of Seige Shockwave when I wrote this.

Hey guys, notice the bot on the far right?

Is that indicative of SS KSI Boss hitting retail already?

I'm torn on KSI Boss cause I love that mold but have it twice already.

I couldn’t muster up the love for the last two but now with this paint job I totally cant say no. Time to get out the Titan Masters bin :lol:

Not really no. I have the 3 FOC Seekers, but that is as close as I am to having several seekers. I plan to collect the seekers from Siege minus Starscream and Thundercracker most likely.

I would get KSI Boss anyway just for the awesome paintjob. Plus, more characters for your Titan Masters I guess.

You could have the KSI Boss be the boss of the other two. ;)

He needs gold chains before he can truly be their boss

So, is Shatter worth it? I have a chance at a discount and I want to know if the mold is worth any amount of money. I've heard very negative things about it and barely anything good. Just looking for a second opinion before going in.

Unless you’re willing to only keep her on display and never play with her, or just keep her in her car mode, I wouldn’t pick her up.

Once in a while, Universal has exclusive Transformers toys, usually movie related (but not always). Well, with the Studio Series line, it seems Universal has some new molds to choose their exclusives from. They will be getting a grey redeco of Transformers Dark of the Moon leader Megatron (aka Hobo-tron to some). We have the official renders below. From them, we see that he does not come with the tarp or his little buddy.

The deco is most probably inspired by Universal Studio's Megatron who taunts kids at the park, and who is rather popular on youtube (you can see an example below).

It is unknown at this time how this toy will be available outside of Universal, though the previous Snarl exclusive was found practically nowhere else. So, are you excited? Let us know!

I really like this, and I can see the idea of this figure. In the Transformers Ride, didn't he have this exact look, minus the broken fusion lobster claw cannon?

So he's like the costumed photo-op character that taunts park guests (if you haven't seen him in person or watched him on Youtube, he's hilarious).
