    That's a shame about the Jeep version. It would be nice to have all four versions of him from the movie.

    Is there any Chance ThreeA might make a blade add on kit for the deluxe scale? From other sources it looks like he has a different blade for each arm.

    Mine arrived today. I’m impressed with how heavy it is. Now I need to get some batteries.

    Shameless double post but whatever. Finally opened this guy! First impressions are that he looks and feels amazing, but I HAVE to get batteries before I do a proper photo shoot, because the eyes look pretty dead right now.

    Definitely jealous! No updates on mine since leaving China. I'm blaming the polar vortex in the Midwest! o_O

    I have money to buy Bumblebee now. Should I order directly from 3A for their second batch? How long does 3A's courier take to ship? or should I wait for sellers to receive the first batch then buy it off them? I want to minimize the amount of waiting time since I'm impatient and mad that I can't buy any Masterpieces since my Chinese sellers are off the radar atm haha. I WANT TO BUY SOMETHING PLEASE.

    I just received my Bumblebee too. Next to my Optimus Prime DOTM, Bumblebee is scaled perfectly. 3A's previous Bumblebee's are scaled too large. This DLX Bumblebee also makes Optimus Prime look huge and magnificent just like the leader of the Autobots should be. Stay tuned for photos. Unfortunately my Bumblebee got in a skirmish at the U.S. Customs office. He arrived with his left eye missing. I have sent a message to 3A for a replacement.

    From inquiring with @decemberist, having shipped directly from 3A is fastest....it’s one direct shipment. Otherwise you are waiting for 3A to ship to the retailer and then the retailer shipping it to you. Also 3A requires full payment up front whereas a retailer you pay once it arrives. Hope that helps.
