Thanks to posts on Instagram and the Cybertron 21 Facebook page, we have in hand images of 3 upcoming Studio Series figures. These are core class Shockwave and Ravage along with voyager Soundwave. We get a good idea of Soundave's size as well as how his alt mode looks like. We see that Hasbro has been very coy with those alt mode images, diligently hiding the fact that Soundwave's head just stays there in the back. Same with Shockwave who also has visible head syndrome. We do see the accessory that comes with Ravage to give Soundwave a more G1 styled gun tip. And sure, Ravage's alt mode is even more of a nothing burger than Soundave's but we see that it's just a way to fold him into the chest cavity.

Wow, I knew Ravage was smaller than most Cores when shown in package next to Shockwave, but he's even smaller than I thought he'd be.

The more I look at the Core class Shockwave, the more I like it, however I will be skipping it as it looks like it is a downscaling of a figure I already have. Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Voyager class Shockwave!

Why skip it? It's made to be used with larger figures like titans and such. Your BH Shockwave could also have a son!

Hopefully you get him soon, it's honestly a nice figure. I have mine displayed amongst his other Targetmaster brethren! (Still waiting for a new Needlenose toy...at least the subscription service figure can suffice in the meantime...)

Imagine actually transforming Soundwave correctly so he doesn't have his head showing in alt mode. Dude shoulda looked at the instructions (No need to correct me, I'm "aware" of why he may potentially be missing instructions). As For Soundwave and Ravage, I was really hoping to just buy the Offroad Bumbelebee (which i did) and have my sole BB movie representation. But these Cybertron bots and cons from the movie are so tempting that I may want to dip into the live action side of Studio Series too.

Shockwave looks great and all, but his existence still bothers me. His inclusion in Studio Series makes no sense when it comes to scale, he’s one of the first SS figures to break this rule, it seems. It would have made way more sense to release a G1 Core Class Shockwave, he would complement the other Kingdom Core Cons perfectly.

I don't see any way to hide the head on Soundwave. The picture of it upright is the bottom of the alt mode with the head turned backwards, in the picture of the top the head is turned down. In neither picture is there anything that would hide the head. I don't think they intend for you to look at it from the underside.

I think there's some flaps on the shoulders that fold out to hide the head, at least that's what they look like. Could be wrong, and it doesn't do a whole lot to reduce the sheer nothingyness of the altmode. A shame as his robot mode looks fantastic.

Shockwave looks good too, though damn those proportions are thicc! I had a very silly idea a while back for justifying multiple Shockwaves by saying he created multiple clones of himself to solve his understaffing problem (it's only logical!) and this can be the obligatory female clone/the Slipstream.

Yes, the flaps were shown covering the head in an earlier leak. Altmode still looks like nothing, but at least it's a more visually cohesive pile of nothing.

Shockwave looks really nice, just needs to be bigger.

Soundwave has a nice robot mode, and Ravage is also good looking. They will make a nice pair

There's a couple really interesting points from today's Hasbro Q&A about Studio Series!

BB Arcee is a part of wave 2 (along BB Ironhide) and slated for release around May 2022. From that, we can estimate that DOTM Bumblebee and ROTF Sideways (Wave 3) would be due in late summer/fall 2022.

OG.JPG


It's not a lot, but it's nice to hear them acknowledge that we'll be seeing more Bayverse in SS with how little we've gotten recently compared to prior years, specifically citing TLK, which has quite a few characters with no figures. We do have a Studio Series Brains already though, which the question mentions.

Concepts.JPG


The first part of Hasbro's response has me really intrigued. Being in the movie in at least one form could bring in characters like Springer (Ospreys are very common in the movies, especially DOTM), Breakway (F-35s appear in TLK), and maybe that Decepticon armored truck in DOTM that carries the pillars?

Man, having a display with Starscream and Ospreys with flight stands would be SO cool.

I felt a great disturbance in the force, as if millions of Earthrise/Kingdom Arcees cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced.

Seriously though, I probably won't get any of the Studio Series Bumblebee figures, but that Arcee looks nice. While the robot is a bit chonkier than I would like, it's good that they haven't just flat-out copied G1 Arcee and she's still a motorcycle to keep it semi-consistent with the other movies.

It's definitely a different take on her, but she'll be a pass for me. I don't care for the black parts on her robot mode and I don't really like the alt mode either. But I guess it's interesting that she's not the same old car that she has been all this time.

Not a fan of Arcee, but damn if that Tron-esque cycle mode isn't a sweet ride.

May just pick it up, and maybe Chromia if they repaint it.

Hasbro had a Q&A today showing off some of the upcoming Transformers Studio Series figures from the Bumblebee movie. They showed concept designs for the alt modes so fans can finally see what they were going for with Soundwave. They also gave us more stock images of these upcoming figures, along with our first look at Arcee. We see concept images of her alt mode and they showed her robot mode live. We also have in hand images of deluxe Brawn and Ratchet from a review Chefatron uploaded. Hasbro also shared stock images of the final toys from the Kingdom line, but we will have another article to share that with you. The screenshots of the Q&A come from TFW2005.

That's the kind of Arcee design we should have for Generations. Kibble that is necessary to the design and doesn't make her a shellformer.

Something revealed in the Q&A was that ILM never created alternate modes for the Cybertronian-bodied Bumblebee movie characters who didn't transform onscreen in the movie, so Hasbro had to create these altmodes for them by themselves.

Sadly ratchets wheels are a let down compared to the concept art but he might look good with some oversized wheels.

Getting techno bots feel from arcee and she is potential buy for me.

Wheeljack alt mode is another pass and the bot mode still doesn't have his chest contours.

Can't say I like the heads on most of these tho.

https://youtu.be/BwVrUJ1trLU?t=728 looking at this video... and I don't know if anyone has the official instructions in hand yet... but if that 'canopy' for the vehicle mode can be pulled up and forward over the middle section... it'd be a lot closer to the concept material... as it is... I really don't know why they chose to transform the back the way they did considering what they were supposed to be shooting for... oh well....

Hi, it's because there's been an editorial change regarding how we at Seibertron deal with leaked figure reviews. As a compromise so we could still bring these figures to the attention of the fans, while also listening to concerns from some fans about how these toys came into the hands of these reviewers. To this end we won't be posting the link to the review anymore, and instead provide screengrabs.

For those that want the to watch the reviews, regardless of how toys were obtained then you certainly won't need our help in finding them (indeed PrimeVsPrime posts his own in the Transformers review section of these very forums).

Please continue to send the reviews into the site though, just be aware that we won't be newing the review as is anymore.

Ratchet and Brawn continue to look outstanding. Love that Brawn's drill is a 5mm accessory, I foresee fun times ahead! And Arcee, holy slag she looks great! Probably the best Arcee figure to date; the robot mode is glorious (actually looks like a feminine robot yet has a modest, neat and good looking backpack) and the vehicle mode is awesome. Gives me TRON vibes actually. I'll absolutely be picking those three up if I can.

Ok, if we are to be stuck getting G1/G1-like figures for all eternity (which seems likely anymore because, you know, imagination is kind of rare at Hasbro), THIS is what I want. That Ratchet is amazing, and Arcee is just sick. Brawn LOOKS like a Brawn- meaning he's not this little tiny thing...he's, well, brawny! Big! Bold-looking, physically imposing. I can't wait for these!

I have to admit, I kind of agree, I wouldn't mind half as much that we keep getting G1 season 1 characters over and over again, if they applied some creative licensing to their designs

I'm really exited for these BB movie figures.
For me, THESE are what the Siege designs should have been. True CYBERTRONIAN modes, no "Earth modes with gribbles" nonsense.

I have to admit, I kind of agree, I wouldn't mind half as much that we keep getting G1 season 1 characters over and over again, if they applied some creative licensing to their designs
I see that point, but at the same time I would really like updates on Robots in Disguise and the Unicron trilogy soon. Why doesn't Hasbro realize what a cash cow that would be for them?

As for Brawn I really like his Spartan helmet.

Oh, I agree, I don't want G1 season 1 every year, I just mean that if we are stuck with it, this is how I'd prefer them handle it. I really need UT updates in my life :BOOM:

Updating Cybertron is going to be a nightmare for the designers, because of the Cyber Key gimmicks. Choosing what to keep, what to drop, and what to homage will be a very daunting task when it happens.

I'm honestly of the opinion that most of the original Cybertron molds were as good as, if not better than, today's figures, and would be perfectly content with simple reissues of those molds rather than updates, however unlikely that is to happen.

If Walmart have an exclusive line of G1 and OG Beast Wars reissues, I don't see why that wouldn't be the same for Armada, Energon, and Cybertron.

If that were the case couldn't they just simply reissue Galaxy Convoy instead of giving us a new version in Siege? Conversely, cant they give us updated versions of the other characters, like they did with that Prime?

I think it might be a question of finances, as the Cybertron figures would no longer meet the size class system of today. If they did do that, it would have to be separately like they're doing with the original Beast Wars molds.

I can't say that any of them look that good, the design just doesn't appeal to me personally. And all I see when I look at brawn is Man-at-Arms. Arcee's alt mode does look cool but her robot form doesn't feel streamlined.

Yeah, you basically answered your own question. Cybertron Optimus Prime would easily be Commander class given his thicker plastic, spring loaded parts and missiles, electronics and overall size. They were able to do those Prime RID Japanese reissues at very reasonable prices and at least the Beast Wars reissues match current prices for the same or equivalent-ish size classes (still don't understand Rattrap being the same price as Cheetor). Maybe Cybertron Optimus could get away with a $65 price point. Armada Optimus on the other hand would definitely being the $80 or more range thanks to have involved his electronics are, not just the whole self transforming motorized trailer and LED in the fist, but also the infrared system.
