For several months now leaks online and rumors (thanks to store listings) have swirled about the Studio Series line diverting its focus from the live action movie characters to those from the 1986 animated film.  Now at long last Hasbro has officially revealed the two of the figures from this sub-line!  This was revealed as a comicbook.com exclusive story featuring Autobot Jazz and Hot Rod.  These figures look amazing, featuring almost Masterpiece style design in a Generations package.  Both figures are designed to look like their animated counterparts and Hot Rod includes several accessories you would normally see in a more expensive release.  These will be up for pre-order tomorrow (Friday, October 16, 2020).
