Leaked from Cybertron: small changes make a big difference for the Studio Series Jazz figure. Hasbro's Associate Project Manager, Mike. Gives us a personal introduction to this new figure.
Following on from the review of Megatron, PrimevsPrime has a video on Youtube for Voyager wave 2 Brawl from the Studio Series. While fan reaction to Brawl has been mixed at best since we started getting good looks at it, the general tone of the video seems to be positive, especially praising the detailing. Like the last video you can see the toy in both modes and how it transforms, plus general comparisons including to the original movie line's Leader class Brawl. You can see it all in the video embedded below.
PrimevsPrime on Youtube has gotten hands on Voyager wave 2 for the Studio Series line, and has posted some review videos. First up is Megatron, based on the design seen in Revenge of The Fallen. The review goes over the details and poseability, and then walks through the transformation from robot to vehicle form, as well as giving some size comparison to other movie toys. We have the video embedded below, so click through to take a look!
Following the Variety of reports from Hollywood entailment new outlets. Paramount has officially cancelled what was to be the 7th movie, counting "Bumblebee: The movie", in the Transformers franchise. What's already pretty much well known to have been axed following the demise of the now in-famous "writers room". A "reset" was announced during Hasbro Investor Preview Day event last February. Ironically, the literal pun, "The Last Night", appears to be a real thing.
Weibo user NOTRAB
has posted images of a pair of limited-edition figures released only in China: customers who purchased from Hasbro China's TaoBao store on May 15th had a shot at limited edition versions of Deluxe Bumblebee and Leader Blackout! Notrab seems to have lucked out and gotten a "Rusty" Bumblebee, limited to 300 pieces. Only 88 Blackouts were made. Keep reading to see!
By way of Zone Base
proprietor and RFC alum Rob Springer,
we've got a video posted by L.C.A.Studios
, the promotional arm of Universal Studios Japan!
The "Universal Spectacle Night Parade" featured an Optimus Prime-themed float, a massive animatronic Bumblebee, some extremely neon (in the lighting sense of the word, not toy-collector slang for `90s colors) NEST troopers.
The full video runs about 23 minutes, but we've got the embed set to pick up right about when Bumblebee makes his entrance - keep reading to check it out!
BBTS have done it again, bringing hard to find exclusive Transformers toys to fans everywhere. They have just posted a pre-order page for the Transformers Dinobot Deluxe Snarl that is a Universal Studios exclusive item, available only in their them park shops, until now!
Just up on the Chinese social site, Biadu. We have a look at the Unmasked Optimus Prime Studio Series figure revealing the Autobot Leader's face sculpt.
This is the second time a mask-less figure has surfaced. Now, it is showing up in China. Could this be a cancelled prototype, a special edition, or a variant? Check out the image gallery with looks at comparison shots and more in the gallery below.
Even quicker than expected, we have first looks at the transformation processes for both Megatron and Brawl from Voyager wave 2 of the Studio Series line. Megatron has a quick process from tank-thing to robot, taking under two minutes, and using some classic Lockdown tricks to expand the robot out of the fairly compact alternate form. Brawl similarly finished in about two minutes, though appeared rather more of a fiddly process to go from tank to robot than Megatron. Both are part of longer videos that include other toys, but the videos open on the new Voyagers, so you can check them out easily - find the videos embedded below!
Tonight we're looking at several photos of the upcoming Studio Series Megatron and Brawl, whoch will make up the second Voyager wave. The photos were shared by is456
, and give us views of the front and back of both boxes, plus images of the toys themselves, albeit still secured to their plastic trays. Hopefully we'll be seeing more comprehensive looks at these two figures soon to get an idea of how their transformations work and how well they match up in terms of build and poseability to Optimus and Starscream from the first wave. Check out all the pictures, just below!
Via 3000toys, we have stock images of two new 1:24 scale die-cast cars coming from Jada. The two new Bumblebees are based on the 70's Camaro and the 2006 concept model, both as seen in the first live action Transformers movie, and interestingly carry the Studio Series product branding identical to the current Hasbro Movie product line. The two cars are well detailed as would be expected of the growing range of Jada Transformers offerings, though Classic Bee's rust looks perhaps a bit too clean. The cars are stated to have an MSRP of $22.99 and 3000toys says they're due for arrival in May. Click through to see the photos!
Our very own forums member, Lore Keeper has shared a Toy Review for the Transformers: Studio Series Voyager Class Thundercracker that's finally coming our way. Read on to see the video review below.
Toys R Us shutting its doors in the US has led to concerns about the release outlets for some products, among them Movie Masterpiece as the first two entries in the current series were specifically exclusives there. Barricade seemed to have a spot of bad luck with its the chain shutting down before the toy had a chance to ever reach shelves. Today we've found out that Amazon has a listing for "Transformers Barricade Action Figure" priced at $79.99, which looks to be giving Barricade a way out after all. Click through for more info!
BBTS has just let us know they now have this elisive figure up for Pre-Order. This Studio Series 09 Voyager Class Dark of the Moon Thundercracker figure converts from robot to jet mode in 35 steps and comes with 1 accessory. Remove the included backdrop to showcase the Thundercracker figure in the Chicago Aerial Offensive scene. Priced at $34.99 USD - Pre-Order Now
The ability to procure Studio Series Thundercracker has been a subject of concern, as Toys R Us teeters on the edge of its complete shutdown in the US, including termination of its online storefront that would otherwise have potentially served collectors without immediate local access to a retail location. However, good news was delivered today, as Entertainment Earth has posted a listing for Thundercracker at the SRP of $29.99, and expected for arrival in July. As of the time of writing, Thundercracker has been available on shelves despite liquidation being in progress, but this should offer a safety net for anyone still having trouble getting hold of the toy.
