Merry Christmas all Seibertronians!

With tidings of good cheer we also bring you news, couresty of fellow Seibertron user, Nemesis Primal, that a couple of new Studio Series toy reviews have been uploaded to YouTube! The first comes to us via YouTuber TonTon Reviews. The review is one that has been long awaited, and that is a video review of Jet Power Optimus Prime, the combined form of soon to be released #32 2007 Optimus Prime and #35 Revenge of the Fallen Jetfire. This combination is seen at the end of the Revenge of the Fallen movie as Jetfire gives his spark up so that Optimus can use his parts to power up to battle the Fallen.

TonTon Reviews - Jet Power Optimus Prime


For this second and third reviews, we turn to non-English speaking Kevin Liu, who provides his own review of Jet Power Optimus Prime, but of more interest is his review of #34 Dark of the Moon Megatron! His toy is leader Class and comes with an Igor minifigure. Whereas his old Voyager class toy had a moulded cowl to hide his damaged parts, this one uses a fabric one instead.

Please note that these following reviews are not in English.

Kevin Liu - #34 Dark of the Moon Megatron


UPDATE:

Thanks to fellow Seibertron user, EvasionModeBumblebee, we've learned that YouTuber Kevin Liu has put out a new video as an add on to his Jet Power Optimus Prime review, showing that the left over piece of Jetfire's torso can be turned into a big cannon for Prime to wield. Check out the additional video below.



Are you looking forward to these toys? Do you think this version of Jet Power Optimus Prime is better then the previous attempt? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews.

That's going to be SS leader DoTM Megatron? Wow. Looks like a cheap KO. A flimsy, hollow piece of plastic that can be bent easily. That truck mode is horrendous and the robot mode is slightly better. Maybe I'm being too harsh, but I've been waiting on a leader class DoTM Megatron since 2011. This is disappointing to say the least. Sadly, I might still get it because there is no other option. If I do, it'll never see vehicle mode.

I get why Megatron’s pretty hollow in truck mode since he has to compress quite a bit from vehicle mode to robot mode, I do wish there were some panels to cover the back of the cab in alt. mode though, that gap’s pretty obvious. Other than that it I think it looks great and I really like how it scales, can’t wait to get it!

Umm ..... nah ill pass on Megs. Thought this would be an improvement over my original dotm megs, but im not seeing it. The truck mode looks cheap, and the bot mode is too boxy. Doesn't look like my megs will be replaced anytime soon. :CON:

Same for me. Beside, all of my Movie Megs in my collection are voyager and I got rid of all my leaders. So it have no place in my collection anywhere.

Looks aside, his truck mode is the same size as Voyager Optimus' truck mode and his bot mode is the same size as Voyager Megatron's so does it really matter that he's technically a Leader? Just curious.

Kevin Liu also just posted a new video of SS Bonecrusher.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1rVxhpgjs84

It's...pretty small, LOL. Vehicle mode is about the same size as the movie 1 deluxe, and robot mode isn't even a head taller (although it does look a little bulkier and more film accurate).

I'm really let down by this thing :(

Just got Dropkick from my girlfriend, why exactly do people not like him? My only complaints about him are that he won't really stay up on his landing skis in alt mode and I wish his eyes were bigger. Other than that, I think he's awesome. His alt mode looks amazing and barely shows that he transforms, I like his Jolly Rogers, his weapons are fun since they can be regular guns or rocket pods, his transformation is involved and hits all the good notes that Stinger's does, and he makes a decently threatening-looking angry assassin man.

Also I got my SS bad boys together for a late family photo, they look pretty awesome/menacing together:

(Also I haven't seen Bumblebee yet, so if the movie itself has to do with people's dislike of Dropkick, no spoilers pls)

He seems pretty accurate when compared to voyager Prime so I'm not sure I understand the complaints...

Got Blackout ordered from Walmart for only 36 bucks! Super hyped! If anyone else is missing him, I think he's still that price on Walmart and/or Amazon. Had Walmart gift cards to use though with 15 dollars to spare! Super excited! Should be here on Wednesday. :)

I also got the figure the other day, and I have just about the same thoughts as you. Even though his jet intakes are a bit loose, a little polish can fix that; and while I initially thought that his hips were too far apart, opening them at a 45 degree angle makes them look sooo much better to me ;)^

Will there be an AoE edition Ratchet in the line (perhaps with a detachable leg?), or should I settle for the DoTM Ratchet to represent AoE Ratchet as well?

I'd be shocked if they don't release a AoE Ratchet, but I don't think it's been announced yet. I can tell you from personal experiences that it will be announced the day after you buy the DotM version ;)

I don't follow the movies or their toys very closely, but what would the differences be?

I'm trying to decide if that day is today. :lol:

That's what I'm trying to find out. I need AoE Ratchet to go with Lockdown on my SS shelf, but there's no discernible difference between SS DoTM Rachet and Ratchet on screen in AoE. Except maybe the aforementioned missing leg, courtesy of Lockdown.

The deco on AOE Ratchet is the same as DOTM Ratchet plus the legs are on ball joints meaning they are already detachable, so I don’t see why we would need an AOE Ratchet in this line

Ratchet’s the same between DOTM and AOE (I’ve been using shots from both movies as reference for painting the DOTM SS), I don’t foresee them doing an AOE version since there aren’t any new accessories to include, but I guess they could always just throw on a dirt layer on the existing deluxe.

I seriously have to recommend SS DOTM Ratchet, by the way. Huge improvement over the old DOTM deluxe and the shade of green they use is perfect and really eye-catching. I’ve been painting him over the past few days, the robot mode is pretty much done so I’ll be moving on to vehicle mode soon.

I wanted to see their take on a Studio Series Blitzwing because I’m a sucker for the G1-style seeker aesthetic.

Knowing at least half a year's worth of the 2019 Studio Series offerings, there was one glaring unknown: SS 31. Well, now we know both what it is and why we had not heard of it before. SS 31 turns out to be none other than voyager Revenge of the Fallen (ROTF) Megartron with Battle Damage. That damage includes a new darker deco and a new head to reflect what he looked like at the end of ROTF. This was revealed on Hobbybase's Facebook page where it seems to be available in that particular store in Hong Kong.

The listing on Robot Kingdom tells us why we had not heard of it yet, it is an exclusive item. We do not know yet who in the US will be carrying this exclusive item, but judging at how easy every other Studio Series exclusive has been to order or obtain in the US, there shouldn't be anything to worry about.

We also have more images of upcoming voyager Rampage and deluxe Scrapmetal found on the Snakas blog.
