    Much appreciated thank you.

    BTW, do you see a difference in the paint color, weathering or other that differs from the initial promo pictures? @decemberist never clarified when I throw out the question since some video looked different...perhaps the lighting. Perhaps you could comment?

    Thanks again

    There's always a difference between a prototype and mass produced version.
    A small example is the emblem on Blitzwing's wings, and the depth of the gold on it's cockpit canopy.

    Color will vary in pics by diff photographers, cameras, post edits, and between protos and finals.

    I do my best to match what the eye sees in my base shots like these black BG ones. But it's never 1 to 1.

    That being said, when I look at the fig in person, I do not feel it is off from what I was expecting from the promo pics. It's within an acceptable range.

    So to me, promo pics are representative of actual fig.

    That's super sick. I think I'll get that preorder now. One thing I want to ask though; if you have Masterpiece Movie Bumblebee VW Bug version, how does he stack to Blitzwing? I get that 3a's bee supposedly scales with him, but I faintly remember him to be a bit smaller since Blitzwing can pick him up with one hand.

    Interesting how they both scale. Part on me wonders if Blitzwing was 1:1 with SS. It would be a great pairing seeing a more “real world” evolution of the seeker design :) 

    @Tony_Bacala how tall does Blitzwing measure to top of his head? I believe SS is about 8 1/2” to top of head. Thanks

    Edit: sorry couldn’t a get a full frame of both

    I'll try to get a shot of MP VW Bee with him for final gallery. I am in middle of fancy pants shots tho so it will have to wait till I re-set up the black BG.

    Seeing him next to bee I wasn't thinking he was that big, seeing him next to the MP guys, that's a nice bang for your buck.

    I'm curious, on top of comparing him to VW Masterpiece Bee, how does he compare to say Maketoys Howling Meteor?
