    They said if you preordered before December 12th (my birthday hehe) you'd be getting the first batch which is due to ship out in January! Like with all 3A stuff later waves will ship over the coming months so some people might get him as late as the summer. Some people have had their TLK Optimus for months and I haven't even received an invoice yet...

    Oh right, thanks for the clear up. I'll just get it whenever, I'm not really in a rush and I guess it helps me save money for SS figures. I do hope you hear from them about your TLK Prime. Also next time, try to not cave in and buy most of SS wave 5 on eBay :lol .They're coming out next month!

    I didn't see this video posted in the thread. It's quiet thorough in showing articulation etc. Came from TransFans that did the picts a few posts above.

    Wow he looks even more amazing than I thought! The detail is incredible. And he's SO posable! The way the knees bend in particular is fantastic. The only thing I think looks weird is how the thigh armor comes away so easily. I also wish the fingers were fully articulated but I also understand that this is a smaller version.

    I love how solid he looks, too. Like he can hold any pose even in an earthquake. Can't wait to have this!

    Yeah, he looks really nice and the articulation is great. My only complaint, which others have mentioned, is the dead eyes when there not lit, which would be 99.9% of the time.

    You could try a thin layer of bright blue paint. It would allow the LEDs to shine through when lit (although they'll be dimmer) and they'd look better when unlit.

    I might consider that. I bet I could do it with a watercolor paint from the tube, then at least it would be removable, if need be.

    Thanks for the update. I hope it's Blitzwing.
    Any update regarding the Premium Scale figures? That's usually the scale I collect.

    I have a question for decemberist.
    Would the height difference for premium beetle bee to be mich shorter than tlk bee?
    And will there be a premium optimus prime?
    I have tlk prime, bee and dotm Starscream, and I need 1 more premium.
    I am deciding to get whether tlk megatron (to get the most up to date bay look for each of them) or get the beetle bee when it’s in premium scale

    This movie was amazing. I felt like I was watching a live action G1 episode. I'm just blown away. So 3A are u gonna give us all the Bumblebees? The G1 characters and their voices were also amazing. I guess we will be getting a Masterpiece Cybertron Bumblebee.

    If you're lucky, Decemberist will occasionally rule something out (although rarely)- but he'll never reveal anything until it's time for the official reveal.
