Fellow Seibertronian Kanrabat has shared with us another video review from the Transformers Studio Series line, this time from the Autobot side of the factions, in the shape of Bumblebee in his vaguely The Last Knight incarnation, complete with hammer.

The clip, embedded below from YouTube reviewer Baltmatrix, shows both modes and posability but also features some severe issues in terms of stability and solidity - which may not entirely be due to the toy's quality, though it obviously factors in, of course, as the second review by Ultrazilla Toys embedded below also demonstrates. In any case, take a look, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub discussion

Toys like Studio Series Bumblebee make baby Primus leak optic cleansers. Everytime one breaks, he snuffs the spark of unformed canine-mode protoforms...

BTW, there is something wrong with the news post at the main page. The screen goes blank after I watch an embedded youtube vid there (so I have to resetartmy browser to go back to seibertron) and I cannot post a reply via the option to do so there. I have to jump to this thread to so so instead.

This also makes baby Primus sad...

Well, the only thing I got out of that video is that I won't be watching Baltmatrix anymore, not that I really did in the first place. Anyways, I'll still be getting that Bumblebee (maybe they'll fix some of the issues for the main release), I'll just have to tighten some of the joints. Maybe this is just the result of them rushing the figure for this early release?

Wouldn't it be great if he didnt have that stupid f**king cannon arm that he used for like 3 seconds in one movie? Just saying...

Oh no, the figure comes with a weapon! He's ruined!

What rock have you been hiding under? It was movie figures that drew me back into the hobby in 2007. If it wasnt for movie figures, I wouldnt have never known CHUG or this website existed.

I dont agree with your assertion. For a figure to "come" with a weapon, the weapon must be removable. What I see here is a robot amputee. Besides cannon arms blow monkey balls.

Huh? Bee uses that plasma cannon pretty extensively in every movie except AOE, where it's designed differently and sits under his arm instead of replacing his hand.

Hey guys, before y'all go bashing an entire line based on a single floppy figure, bear in mind that these figures are being released pretty much right after they were officially revealed. They aren't at mass retail yet, so it's possible there will be running changes made before they're released worldwide.

This is rusty 1969 camaro Bee who never wielded a cannon arm until after the 2007 camaro scan. So not only is it silly looking, its not movie accurate. Its just Hasbros obsession with the damn cannon arm.

While I think this reviewer was overly harsh, Hasbro's quality/design has gotten bad lately. I am almost done with them. I did get this figure. Haven't opened it yet. I may just leave him boxed, as he does look good in the packaging.

It won't fully tab together even in the promo shot :lol:

Now that I think about it, "loose" and "tight" may be completely subjective. One may think a joint as "tight enough" to keep the toy standing, yet it's easily manipulated, others may think that's too loose, preferring them to be like vises. :lol: The parts popping off constantly is inexcusable though, but that's still preferable to pinned joints breaking.

I'm sorry? There's a Nitro Zeus remold/repaint?

It was announced in the general sections of the Toy Fair releases. It was not shown, but it was mentioned. It is the Thundercracker that has showed up at TRU scanners, which we all thought at first was a repaint of PotP Starscream but instead is a movie figure.

You know how people keep repurposing Nitro into Thunderwing with that Siege of Cybertron set? I could easily Hasbro use that Starscream retool of TR Nightbeat, released with Legends Octane. Just no clear plastic. :lol:

I DO hope you are right on this one. Because 2017 was the WORST year ever for QC since I started collecting in 2010.
