Yeah, can you imagine what it’d be like if they couldn’t transform either?!
Soooooo...when can I have this?
Please ThreeZero may I have more.
Ideally Evasion Prime, Shatter, and Dropkick.
Man I’m almost convinced of picking this guy up, only problem is that he only ever seems to look good in a dynamic stance. Any other stance, and he just looks kinda dull.
In other news, I just got delivery confirmation. My Blitz-thang is waiting for me at home! (And I've been lead to believe that Refraktor is also due for delivery today)
I will say that I can't wait until we get a cool transforming (non hastak) Blitzwing.
This design is so cool.
Bruh that looks like it’s straight from the film. Very cool.
Hasbro told us to remove the decals, so we removed the decals. We personally know other companies that have had issues in the past with using official military markings without permission and it's a legal issue we'd rather avoid than risk. Shrug
Engineer deemed them to be too fragile for production. Premium Scale has the advantage of being much much larger so we can include the more minuscule detailing.
Is it less work to do a Premium scale figure when you've already done a deluxe? Like was Premium Bee and Blitz partially complete after working on the deluxe scale (or vice versa)? Or do you have to start from scratch with no shared sculpting between figures?
Also whatever happened with those old polls you guys had on FB? Are those figures being made? And can I talk someone into making a premium scale Sentinel Prime?
DLX scale and Premium scale have separate engineering teams. Both teams share the same assets and will talk with each other when troubleshooting, but for the most part they work separately and simultaneously.
The lead engineer on the Premium Scale figures is a detail junkie and will flesh out as many tiny details as possible.
Since Threezero has taken over, you'll have to ask them about character polls. I just mainly did them on 3A's FB to provide some data to the COO to show him that people want other characters than Optimus and Bee, but the polls proved otherwise. I did provide them with a character line up and Hasbro approved scale plan before 3A's closure, but who knows if they'll follow it.
I would love to see this line keep going with other characters from the movies and other TF series if allowed. Really would love to see some of older Premium characters done in the DLX line, ideally Evasion Prime.
In vanilla poses it bears what’s expected of a seeker; sleek & strong. I loved the details on Blitzwing’s forearms. No $ for Premium line. I am happy with DLX. You should get it before u regret on passing it.
Thank you Digger!
Dang, I hope they make more characters. A full Bumblebee line up in DLX scale would be a dream come true.
Since it's no longer confirmed, are you allowed to say if Shatter was on that list?
In other news, something is at the post office. Hoping it's Blitzwing!
Heroes and clowns!
It really is a lovely figure.
I mean I haven't compared the seat leather to the actual F-4 Phantom I have in my garage, but my initial assessment is that the detailing is pretty spot on.
...i clamber over an F4 in a local boneyard about once a year; no seat leather that i can remember but let me know if you’d like me to confirm any other details...
how tall is he? bbts has him listed at 10.6 inches but i think this picture with mp starscream says otherwise lol
Wait is that the premium scale Bee?
I think it's just the "Deluxe". Whatever the basic one was that is already released.
