    Straight out the box
    It's not huge but it's gone through the grey paint, the red paint and into the actual plastic
    I believe that piece is detachable so hopefully 3A/ThreeZero will post it out
    If not then I'll just pretend it's battle damage!

    Yeah I would definitely seek a replacement part if that were mine. I hope it goes well for you with their customer service.

    Without a doubt the best photo of this figure I have ever seen. Outstanding work!

    Apologies if this has been asked but is anyone making stickers or waterslide decals for this figure? P&TY

    Just got mine today. What's weird is that he kinda smells like BO. Also I can't for the life of me get the null-ray blaster to plug into the peg.

    That's odd. Did it continue to smell that way after you had it out for a while? Also where did you buy yours? Also try using a blow-dryer on the connection hole for about 15 seconds and it should fit after that.

    I bought it from chosen prime. I'm guessing whoever assembled it smelt that day. It's not noticeable now. I ended up using a hex key to clear out what I assume was mold flash. The nullray goes in just fine now.

    I got this guy a couple days ago. He is amazing and is a great figure to get my interest in the Deluxe line.

    I'm still trying to decide between Blitzwing and Optimus as I can only afford one or the other at the moment but, yeah, the DLX line looks to be shaping up nicely... I absolutely luuuurve my Bee :cool:

    Going by the difference between SS Bee and 3A Bee I'd say no... I sold my 'improved' KO (the wheels were moved from the shoulders to the back) of the SS Bee as soon as I'd bought the 3A version as it made it look like a toy (which I suppose it technically is :p )

    Not even remotely comparable products. That's like not buying a Masterpiece because there's a one-step changer coming out.

    This boy has been out for a long while. Also it’s a totally different product and market.
