The line following "Classics" and "Universe 2.0" paying homage to past characters from various Transformers continuities.

Toy News: Official Stock Photos of Upcoming "Studio Series" Transformers

The "Studio Series" line of "Generations" figures continues in 2019 with a batch of new and ecclectic mixture of characters! These include Deluxe Class Drift with a helicopter alternate form as seen in "Age of Extinction", Decepticon Dropkick in his car form from "Bumblebee" and even the Constructicon Hightower with his vaguely insectoid robot mode. Perhaps the most exciting for me is "Dark of the Moon" Optimus Prime who comes with a trailer that can transform into both a jet pack and weapons platform as seein in the film!

While other lines focus on paying homage to "Generation One" or introducing new characters not tied down to any continuity, "Studio Series" brings in characters from the live action films and places them under one banner.

Using relative scale from one figure to another and even the CAD models from Paramount in some cases, "Studio Series" continues with characters such as Optimus Prime from the "Bumblebee" Movie and an awesome Optimus Prime who comes with a trailer that can transform into the weapons platform seen in "Dark of the Moon"!

Perhaps the segment of the Transformers toy line that excites long time fans the most is "Generations". The "War for Cybertron: Siege" line has helped reinvigorate the line in an interesting way and it was represented full force in Hasbro's Toy Fair 2019 showroom! This impressive display brought the Autobot and Decepticon "Cybertron City" displays from previous conventions and linked them together into an incredible battle scene. You can see my video of the display below:
