Default New Transformers Movie toyline - Studio Series

After the sporadic success of the Movie Premier Edition around the world, among different size classes, could Hasbro be looking to continue releasing future movie toys under a new label and start afresh? A new label and image has been found to be trademarked by Hasbro to be called "Movie Edition", and it's only speculation so far, but maybe they are still looking to release movie toys before the Bumblebee toys come out.... or with the Bumblebee movie delayed by six months, the toys they were already planning to release from April, will be relabelled as "Movie Edition" (keeping out any spoilerish 2018 Movie characters), and then have the Bumblebee Movie packaging start hitting stores in October for the December release of the Movie.



Or it could just be like the Platinum Edition label, and this is just a line of premium versions... but then again, those didn't do too well, being hard to find in almost all countries.

More leaks from China, of what could be two toys in the Movie Edition line - Megatron and Brawl.

A couple more blurry leaks from China, showing four of the toys, with specific toy numbers to them...

05 - Optimus Prime
06 - Starscream
12 - Brawl (TF1)
13 - Megatron (TF2)

Each toy will come with a background image from the movie that form was featured in, to create a diorama effect when you display them on your toyshelf.

The article says that they are all Voyager sized... but I think that comes from a previously leaked listing that wasn't yet verified.

Starscream looks alot like his leader version. If he is shrunk down and remodelled without the electronics gone he could be a sleaker and more awesome jet.

It looks like there will be at least 13... but not sure if all will be Voyager size.

The first wave of Deluxes for the Studio Series, has been found from a supplier in Peru.
It is also noted that these are for release in Hasbro and TakaraTomy markets, as expected from the identical release of mainline Transformers toys in both markets now.

Another of the Studio Series toys have been leaked from China - this time the first wave Deluxe Bumblebee toy, which which turns into the old 70s Camaro from the first movie (either a new mould, or a significantly remoulded existing toy).

I read speculation that it seem to have some similar engineering to the last movie bumblebee. I'm very interested in this, my 2007 movie old camero bumblebee has a hard time staying in vehicle mode, the automorph gimmick has lost the ability to stay locked in place.

Looks like a heavy retool of the TLK deluxe 2017 Camaro, notably with the legs and the single arm cannon that attaches after disconnecting the arm off.
