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.

Was my reaction today when finding Thundercracker whom I did not expect to ever turn up in a UK store now that Toys R Us is all deaded and I was mainly going all that way to Cambridge to try get my phone fixed not buy yet another Studio Series Transformer but heck it made the trip worth it. :P

I dunno. I got mine online a couple weeks ago. I hadn't seen anyone mention an in-store one here or as news and if they did I must have missed it. Sorry.

I still haven't seen any of wave 2 in any store yet and here's wave 3 starting to show up. Good thing this isn't a line I'm trying to complete and only picking out a few occasional good ones.

I'm just gonna drop this comment here, as he is still traveling with me places and he's going with me this weekend after a day of work, but...

Studio Series Jazz is my favorite figure of the line so far, and it's looking like, barring some strange thing happening, he will be my figure of the year for this year. Heck, he's probably the most fun I've had with a movie figure recently, right up there just above Nitro Zeus, Thundercracker, and voyager Megatron form TLK and SS Grimlock.

But he's above those 4 as well.

Agreed. Fully. We should have beers and clink them.

Thanks to a heads up from some observant Seibertron fans, we have word that Wave 3 Deluxes of the Transformers Studio Series line have hit retail! This sighting comes to us from a Target in Los Angeles, California, and features the new VW Bumblebee figure that represents his new form in the upcoming Bumblebee movie. There were no signs of the Shadow Raider or Dark of the Moon Ratchet, but it can be safely assumed that they are now out on the shelves as well.

So go out and check out your local stores! You just might find some of the new Wave 3 deluxes to go along with the recent sightings of the Wave 3 voyager Ironhide!
