Thanks to TonTon Reviews on Youtube and a heads up from Seibertronian What's Crackin'?, we have a pair of nice video reviews for the upcoming Transformers Studio Series deluxe class Barricade and Sideswipe!

Starting with Barricade, we have a nice look at the figure that utilizes some of the transformation tricks his MPM self had, and we also see that his chest is mostly real car parts in robot mode, with only the center moving out of the way to allow for the angry chest slant. He is also unique in that he is a Barricade figure that ends up with the hood as the outside piece of his back complete with a bumper-butt.

Up next, we have a nice look at Sideswipe, based on his Dark of the Moon form. The toy switches back to having the movie accurate rear end of the car become the chest (something the Dark of the Moon deluxe did not do), and he comes with a pair of blasters and a fair of detachable swords that peg into his hands. He is also the first Sideswipe figure to actually have the sides of his chest (the rear fenders and tail lights) slant in in a movie accurate style.

Check out the reviews below, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!

:edit: Combined into one post.

I'm amazed at the rate these releases are coming at, really. Sometimes the wait between Generations figures feels like an age, yet these feel like a pretty steady beat.

I mean, I guess it could work for SS if I take his ROTF toy head and put it on this body. I thought they were going for more of a high quality paint and scale standard for this Studio Series line. For the most part they're great, but when I see lacking qualities on the face especially, it bothers me. Like with Movie 1 Ratchet's face.

Was there supposed to be a quote in there?

I didn't want to want that Sideswipe, but wow he looks good here!

They both continue to look pretty good. I love the silver on Sideswipe, it's beautiful and will go well with Jazz

I just realized, that with a nice shade of blue paint, maybe a new head, that Sideswipe's mold could work for a movie Blurr. The tire wheels kind of remind me of Animated Blurr

Looking forward to the next batch of Voyagers for the Transformers Studio Series? Well thanks to a helpful tip off from fellow Seibertron user, What's Crackin?, we've learned that YouTuber Ton Ton Review has uploaded a review of #33 2007 Movie Bonecrusher!

Also at the start of the video during the vehicle size comparisons you can see the new Studio Series #32 2007 Movie Optimus Prime in his Truck mode. You can see that Optimus is much brighter than the original SS Optimus Prime and has some real nice silver paint. His gun also stores in the back, instead of on the side like an image once showed. The windows are also much more clear than the Rotf figure. You can see prime at 2:01

Please check out TonTon's review below!



What do you think of this long awaited bigger take on Bonecrusher? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews.

I wish the hips weren't so far apart and he was taller, but otherwise, he's looking great! My most anticipated SS figure of next year

oh man, the audio on the video is so weird. it's like, you can hear every single scrape of plastic-on-table, every click of joints, and even the traffic outside his house it seems. aw well, that's what the mute button's for i guess.

Well those reviews just continue to prove that I'm getting Sideswipe and Bonecrusher, and Barricade continues to get more and more appealing. My only deterrence is still how much I dislike his original face design. If Siege Barricade is ever properly shown off and is as low effort as it seems like he'll be, then I'll probably grab this Barry over that one, but until then, I'm undecided.

In other news, I don't remember if this was discussed on this thread yet or not, but since further proof of it's credibility just showed up today, I'm putting this here:
1543639770-new-toys-for-2019.jpg

I feel like a lot of talk about the DotM Prime happened when this showed up, but I don't think anyone said anything about the Voyager listings. KSI Boss seems like he'd obviously be a Nitro Zeus repaint/retool, given the previous usage of that name/designation. The "Hero" has me curious though, since it's both super nondescript and comes out earlier than all the other SS figures on the list. What Movie Autobots have we yet to get that would be Voyager-class? This figure could be the missing Hasbro number 31 or 38 if their Takara and Hasbro release times are similar enough.

At this time, the closest Autobot Voyager I think we have to get would be Sentinel Prime, but, blah. I hate that character, legitimately hate.

I think that's it. We got a good Hound in TLK and they seem to be grouping TLK figures into the line as representations for the 4th and 5th movie cast. So Sentinel really is the only Autobot I could think of.

Unless they are making a Canopy figure. But that would surprise me.

Most of the Autobot choices that could be made would be deluxe class: WWII Hot Rod, Jolt, the Wreckers, Mudflap and Skids, Que, and Dino.

Leadfoot could be a voyager? Just thinking in terms of mass, that stomach and the parts to make it could take up a voyager price point. Or maybe a new mold for a dinobot? Or possibly Bulldog/WWI Tank from TLK?

An idea... Couldn't this "hero" be bumblebee movie version of Optimus Prime?
