    Damn. Wish he was in scale with the Bee from the movie. Still looks fucking incredible though.

    Whoops misread your post. Yes, I have the DLX, not premium. Sorry about that.

    Looks great, and if it’s decently priced like Bee, around 130 - 150, I’ll try to get it.

    I would LOVE a Bee Movie Optimus in this scale, that would look absolutely incredible

    Well damn... look at him! And dangit, now I need a stand in for Charlie until my Bee gets here. Which 3.75 figure that is with Bee? It actually looks pretty decent from the back.

    10.6" to top of head. They aren't film scale, but they're close enough to look good next to each other. You'll see once we launch the ads

    Bee's height in the movie is 11.6' and Blitzwing we were told was around 18' tall. After seeing the film, it seems like his size fluctuates to around 20' depending on the scene

    The insignias on the wings are upside down, but I guess that's actually really appropriate/an homage...

    *actually I'd bet it's an unintentional mistake

    ::edit:: It's marked as VF-151? No, just no. VF-151's markings are yellow, not red. And that's a Navy squadron, not USAF. You can't have a "USAF VF-151". That's like a Navy Abrams tank, or an Air Force submarine.

    It's pretty clear whoever designed the scheme, just took random bits from all sorts of F-4's from different squadrons and eras, that couldn't possibly exist. (Though I've expected as such since the first trailer, couldn't confirm until now).

    Still better than all the movie posters with the Shatter-colored F-4 next to Dropkick...

    And my favorite quote: "As a member of the Autobot resistance, you are a traitor to Cybertron and I hereby sentence you to...death". All of his lines were great.

    As a rule, I don’t go in for non-transforming figures. Having said that though, this one is very tempting. Must resist urge to purchase.

    At the risk of sounding like an entitled a-hole fan (I’m not though, seriously, Bee and Blitzwing look stellar), is 3A at least open to doing Optimus and others in this scale from the movie? This scale is great btw, hope you guys know that. It’s so much more affordable yet the quality and craftsmanship seems equal
