    Please keep making non-transformables from the bumblebee movie for the next few years. I would like to see Soundwave, Shockwave, Starscream and even Wheeljack and Cliffjumper. The remaining 4 Autobots(Arcee, Ratchet/Ironhide, Brawn) will be the holy grail.

    Chances are we should get Shatter and Dropkick(Earth version) before that.

    Do you have any idea if DLX Bee releasing so soon after your reveal was lucky, or if the DLX line will release faster than your previous transformers in general? Useually after you reveal, we can expect a waite of somewhere between 6 months and a year and a half before it's in hand. I'm afraid to get my hopes up, but I can't believe how soon I'll have Bee!

    ...so can someone educate me on the scale, detail, and pricing heirarchy between 3A DLX, flame toys kuro kara kuri, art storm ultimetal, toys alliance MAS, and i guess 3A premium figures?..

    ...they're all kind of jumbled together in my mind and i can't distinguish compatible scales, themes, nor price points; nor even keep track of who makes what...

    In terms of price to size ratio it seems to be:

    Flame Toys Kuro Kara Kuri(20cm to 25cm)>Ultimetal(40cm+)>3A Premium(38 to 50cm)>3A DLX(20 to 30cm)>Toy Alliance(45cm)

    Toy Alliance ones are very light though.

    I can't deny I'm disappointed that these aren't in movie scale (by my calculations Blitzwing should be 12.5 to 13.5 inches) but it's infinitely better than having them all the same height.
    I guess this means a DLX Shatter and Dropkick would be around 9 inches tall.

    I think Optimus is the same height as Blitzwing in the film.

    Just let me reenact the "Where is B-127?" scene.

    The question is whether Optimus will have Cybertronian or Earth mode shoulders.

    Yeah, they've been doing relative scale for the past 3A line. Bumblebee should be 60% of Optimus's height, but ThreeA goes for 80%.

    If they end up doing a Cybertron based movie, then I might expect another revised Optimus Prime figure along with revised Soundwave and co.

    If they do all 5 main bots from the film, then this may be the smallest standalone transformers collection in terms of cast numbers.

    2x Autobot refugees vs 3x Decepticon pursuers.

    Bayverse/Tf Prime started with 5 vs 5 arrangements. Much more efficient than a G1 collection with at least 30 bots.

    Ebay:
    Wonder, if someone explain why they named him Blitzwing. When he is fighting with Bumblebee, he said something like "Your friend will be scream in pain".

    I still have feeling like someone became angry when fans named him Starscream after first trailer. I guess it was Bonaventura.

    I hope that someday someone realize how to properly name robots.

    Just because he said "scream" doesn't mean in any way, shape, or form that would be his name. This isn't Pokemon.

    I dont think its a matter of what they're open to doing but rather what the Hasbro license allows them to do. Still, I think Optimus has already been confirmed to be the third figure in the line.
