Hasbro Pulse has been holding live streams on Fridays to reveal upcoming products, switching between brands from week to week. Today their live stream was a "triple play" including Transformers! The three reveals for today were:
- Collaborative "Afterlife" Ectotron
- Studio Series B-127 (Cybertronian Bumblebee)
- Studio Series Dino
Here are some notes I took during the session:
- The Studio Series Starscream revealed last week had a painting mishap at the factory where the cheeks were painted instead of the eyes. This will be corrected in production.
- Starscream's wings feature five points of articulation.
- The line designs on Studio Series Bumblebee are meant to evoke the racing stripes on his future Earth mode.
- Dino includes his two "gauntlet blades".
- The Ectotron redeco/retool is based on the Ghostbusters Afterlife version of the character featuring a more "worn" deco and a new head sculpt.
- There are "wear" details in rust color and a more eggshell white color to represent age.
- The Ghostbusters logo is "cracked", indicating age.
- A new six armed ghost will be included with Ectotron.
- New head features the Ecto-goggles are now down and he has his face shield deployed. Gives the figure a more aggressive appearance.
- The packaging features updated artwork representing the figure's new head and colors. The packaging is more of a card blister. Includes a comic book featuring Ectotron and the Ghostbusters.
