Thanks a heads up from TFanPage101 we've learned Kevin Liu on YouTube has two fresh reviews, for you to view, before you're...through?

This was not supposed to turn into a Dr. Seuss bit but, well, here we are.

At first you will find Hightower quite dour you see he's sour because instead of a back he has a tower. Teeny little arms so creepy it's true, he combines with his bros into a Devastator stew.

And then here comes Drift flying in from aloft in a retool of Dropkick which most fans found soft. All dressed up in royal blue with swords slashing it's uniformity of color schemes that keeps this samurai from clashing...well, in regards to his wardrobe anyways.

Enough of the rhyming! On with the show! Enjoy the views and share your thoughts with the Seibertron crew in the forums and as always stay tuned to Seibertron for the ultimate in Transformers news!

I love your Seuss skills!

Hightower is really cool, and so is Drift. Hopefully, we can get a really nice Bugatti Drift as well.

Maybe if you remove the helicopter parts of Drift, he can make a nice Robot Mode Drift to go as a display piece. I might do that at some point.

I’d say that Drift is a “buy” for me. He’s far from perfect, but he’s undeniably a big improvement over helicopter Dropkick. Both in bot mode, and in alt mode. I’m sure that beefing him up, thereby having him less spindly, really helped a lot. Gives designers more to work with. Im still curious to see what other people have to say about him, once they get him in hand.

Hightower is 100% a must have. Not just because Devastator, but also because his design is just so bizarre and unique. Plus I’m a sucker for construction vehicles.

These are cool, Drift is a surprise.
Also, I think you guys spelled my username wrong, but no big deal.

I wouldn't mind seeing that Drift be turned into a halfway decent Airachnid.

So, this is true. We’re never getting that 2007 Megatron, anyway. :BOOM:

I’m sure we will get one, the universal repaint probably won’t even be sold under the studio series line, just as a park exclusive like Evac and the others.

As per Hightower’s instructions, We’ll be getting leader class Scavenger in early 2020, while Overload comes later in the year, so there will probably be another leader sold alongside Scavenger.

Cool! What do you think of them?

I like them all. Hightower is a brick. He’s a straight up brick but I like his unique look. Combined with Scrapmetal is secure but loose. They’ll stay together but droops with the hinge that connects them.

No voyagers, no leaders. I checked two other Walmart’s too. Full waves dont ship together unless it’s a wave one launch. They come out separate.

Right, that makes sense. All the places around me got the wave 5 voyagers and leaders but never the deluxes.

Look at my photo. That Devastator was an early EARLY stage prototype. There’s a lot of difference with that grey prototype left arm and the final product

There’s no cables or anything like the prototype had and I guarantee Devastator won’t have those huge tubes on his back like the prototype does either now
