I'm in. The price is amazing
Honestly I hope they aren't making another Optimus. If their polls are anything to go by and we're in for a Jetpower Optimus, they really need to branch out and make some other guys. I'm really getting sick of Megs, OP, and Bee.
Oh yeah I forgot about the whole jetpower thing. That does make for an overload of Primes. I’d love to see Dropkick and shatter at a size that works with this Bee. I think they’re gonna be in the movie much more than Blitzwing.
I think a while back someone said that this deluxe bee is actually in scale with the previous Optimi that have been released by 3A, which is part of the reason I'm getting him. You'd think that for a line of non transforming bots there would be some appreciation of scale, but instead it's entirely all over the place in every release.
So really, I couldn't care who they make as long as they're all looking good together. As it stands right now, not a single 3A TF figure looks good next to each other because the sizes are so stupid.
Yeah it’s why I never had any intention of getting any of their figures aside from knight prime who I already have preordered (and who is taking forever to actually come out) but now I might bite on this one. It is pretty crazy how they haven’t paid attention to scale. For the prices they really should be perfect.
The other side is that if they did make them to a scale, the prices might actually be cheaper for some. DOTM and TLK Bee would have been far cheaper due to having to be smaller to scale well. Instead we just have figures consistently hitting the 16-20" mark for the sake of rejecting scale.
This guy looks awesome!!! Really captures what I love about this design, -those big clunky feet! He looks like medabee from medabots, or a MegaMan character. I love it. To bad he's (probably) out of my price range (like most 3A products)
Hope to see what else the line has in store soon
Pre-orders 1st December -what kind of timescale till release?
He's only $145
So when it goes up for PO on 12/1 - when does that actually mean time wise for US customers? Hong Kong is 14 hours ahead of me. So is it 12/1 at Midnight HongKong time that the PO goes live? and 10am 11/30 for me?
Preorders always drop around 9AM Hong Kong time (we're a HK company)
A look at the skeletal joint system
Huh, it's weird knowing that this guy will be more affordable than MP Optimus Prime v3.
Looks pretty damn good!
Tempting, depends on the release date.
I'll be there! I don't think I'll be able to pass this one up. I really hope this leads to more affordable figures of smaller characters that are in scale with the bigger guys.
Look awesome. I really hope 3A will do some of the G1/cybertron characters from the film in this scale.
Looking forward to this.
Definitely ordering this guy! Looks like he'll be a fun size, but still wondering when we'll we the full size premium? Really excited to see some more reveals, but happy we got this one!
Same here. After they finally get around to doing all the characters from 1-3 that they should have been making for the past 4 years.
We need to see figures like these for Starscream, Prime and maybe some of those other G1 designs.
