    Unless MPM "Bee" Optimus knocks it out of the park the Bumblebee 2018 figure will be the last one I'll get. So many choices so little time, but methinks the mpm Prime will be out before 3A gets there's out the door.

    I'm thinking the same thing. It doesn't help some of the MPMs have frustrating transformations which causes me to never transform them. The only thing I don't like about 3A is the lack of scale between the characters. Though, I will buy this Blitzwing and see if it's a worthy sacrifice.

    I enjoy the transformations but with newer designs that haven't seen a few years of trial and error I would be pleased with having accurate enough robot modes that are not compromised by being a first run for a transformable design if that makes sense.

    I dunno. I doubt it will. I just kinda don’t want any MPMs from Takbro.
    I mean I could substitute MPM with 3A. But I still want them to transform.
    :rolleyes:

    That is a beautiful bot design, however briefly that Blitzwing appeared on a screen. At least he was the cause of Bee's mute condition so that's something. I wonder how likely this figure will be retooled for the real Starscream and the other Seekers.

    He looks soooooo good. I love that he has the needle hand he used to mute Bumblebee.

    I just wish he was a little bit bigger. Not loving that comparison pic with Bumblebee.

    Blitzwing should be even taller but I can't deny that they look amazing together.

    Fffffffff.... so torn...
    I want this so bad, but then I really just want a decent Studio Series Voyager or Leader,
    and if such a thing existed I'd probably be satisfied with it... so I'm trying not to impulse buy this just
    to fill the Blitzwing-shaped hole in my collection/heart.

    Agreed. And especially with the scale on this guy. I expected him to be about two heads taller. This is good though. But I would love a studio series. But then maybe I want an MPM. Choices.

    TBH, after the Toys R Us shutdown, I'm worried about the MPM future--
    Ironhide got delayed about 4 months from its original planned release,
    and is only available semi-officially in the US and officially in Japan.
    I know Japan is pushing full-steam-ahead on its regular MP line, but I don't see them prioritizing movie figures...

    I know there are rumors of Jazz, Movie 1 Megatron and Starscream, but nothing for months now...
    Also sucks since Blitzwing and Shatter/Dropkick being slightly more compact than say, an F-22 or alien jet,
    would be ideal candidates for MPMs... sigh.

    Price is $199
    Price includes international shipping via WO3A.com or ThreezeroHK.com

    Also edited first post with images/final info

    Also, c'mon folks, we'd be fools not to include Optimus in the DLX line up. Don't worry

    Given what we've seen from Studio Series, MPM and 3Ps; i wouldn't discount the possibility of a pretty accurate but also transformable BB Blitzwing somewhere down the road. But imo, this figure is still gorgeous. Whilst i wish he was bigger i think the fact he's 10 inches tall is why he's *only* 200 bucks; i'll take a slightly undersized but still awesome Blitzwing over a 250 dollar one any day.

    Also, i love this pose. It has so much character; so much sass and attitude. A lot of the Baymovie designs wouldn't be able to achieve this and i'm someone who's always liked many of those designs.

    Okay, so it's $200. I was hoping it'd be around $180. I probably still bite since it's my favorite design from the film.

    :D
