    This what the masterpiece should have looked similar to. 3P to the rescue I hope.

    So glad I ordered this. Just a shame I missed the deadline for January shipping.

    Absolutely incredible, both the figure and the gallery!

    And oh wow, I did not realize that the DLX is (almost?) in 1:18 scale. That's seriously cool.

    I don't like Transformers that do not transform. I'm not into expensive, high-end collectibles, and I generally dislike Bayverse designs. But this figure is AWESOME!

    @Tony_Bacala, amazing gallery, so jealous you have him at hand :)  can’t wait until it gets released. And can’t wait to see more pictures of Blitzwing. Saw your teaser, when can we expect to see more you can share? Thanks?

    @decemberist, any way of pinning the gallery link into your 1st post for easy finding? Otherwise it’s going to be a pain hunting it down once it gets buried with all future post. Thanks!

    You’re god damn right. That thing was a disappointment to MPM and masterpiece in general. This thing is incredible and shall remain the best official bumblebee movie design. Now Unique Toys! Make it change shape!

    Wonderful pictures! I’m so glad I preordered this, it looks like it’ll be a great figure to have. And it’s kinda adorable too!

    It helps that it's not a Bayverse design, but a Knightverse design. ;)

    Yes, it's pretty close, I was surprised when I looked at reference stills. Was like hey, I got some Joes that look like that...

    This is it for my Bee review pics. I'll revisit over time to have fun via pics tho.

    As for Blitzwing, that's up to @decemberist and 3a, I just share what they release. :)

    I'd say about 25-30 degrees in, less outward. And it spins as well.

    It's a Bayverse design slightly tweaked by Knight. But all that aside, it's a cool figure that nicely showcases this version of Bumblebee.

    Slightly is an understatement. Virtually everything about this design is different. The only thing thatst carried over were his face elements, but those have been changed heavily too. But yes, it's a very cool figure indeed.

    Good god, it’s getting harder everyday not to order this little fella! After that Blitzwing reveal, I’m certain to cave at any moment.
