Transformers: Studio Series

Well that’s a bummer—my Slag/Slug preorder was finally canceled on me. Shoot…

Is there anywhere to still get him?

I buy the third party weapons because they're either more accurate or all around better then Hasbro's. And half the time Hasbro doesn't include them anyway, like all these Dinobots missing their swords. But upgrade kits are also too expensive for me. They look nice, but I can't afford those on top of the $50 figure as it is. As long as the big gap in his chest is well hidden it won't bug me too much. Most of the gaps on the other 2 are well hidden for the most part too. It's just some cost cutting measure Hasbro does to make them a little cheaper. Now granted, we don't see that savings. It goes in their profit margins. But we still get incomplete figures, which kinda sucks. But they are still nice enough to get, to me at least.

I got the Ravage exclusive today, after waiting like 2 weeks since the sale for them to actually send it to me. I like the chest piece better then the one on the Cheetor mold. I wish they would've found a way to incorporate it into Cheetor instead of the skinny one we got. The transformation is a little hard cause the joints are so tight, and his head keeps popping off every time I do it. But it's not too shabby. Mine came with his front legs reversed though. The left was on the right and the right on the left. I noticed it when I tried to bend his legs in Panther mode. So I just popped them off and switched them. I wonder if they're all like that. And his front paws were really loose so I tightened them up a little. Otherwise hes a really cool figure. Not $55 cool, so glad I got him on sale, but for the sale price hes nice.

Sludge jumped to Friday for me as well.

I may need to run to storage and grab my MP Grimlock so he can hang with his crew.

Got my Sludge today. He looks amazing. He’s huge and fits in perfect with the other two. Only thing is mine is really floppy. Barely stands up. I have him in Dino mode like the other two for now though and he looks fantastic. Hope we get Snarl and Swoop, though I’m hearing they won’t be leader class.

Honestly I'm fine with that. At least Swoop. I always imagined him being smaller. Snarl would be a little odd being smaller then Slag, but it means I wouldn't have to spend $55 a piece on them lol.

I do not want Swoop to be as tall as the rest of the group.

Depending on the angle, Swoop was slightly shorter than the others in the cartoon. Makes sense for him to be a bit smaller. Snarl should be the same height as the other Dinobots.

Ideally I'd like to see him about the same size as Junkheap/Wreck Gar. That might be a little small, but there's no way he should be the same size as the rest.

I can finally stop looking for Sludge in Walmart and Target. Dorkside shipped. I may have missed him at Target a few weeks back because I swear there was an extra Starscream from the day before. Hasbro and the wacky repack and carry forward choices.

Arcee (the 86 one) just shipped for me from Amazon, about six months early.
