    While I'm pretty much over and done with Bay's Transformers... I would love a Bay Prime from any of the first 3 movies done in the DLX scale/format.

    Bought it with mixed feelings. On one hand, it's a great looking figure and I want to support the line. On the other hand, it's another goddamn Optimus... This line hasn't branched out enough from the stereotypical main bots for me to be entirely happy with it. I won't be surprised when we get the Premium scale version of this Optimus, along with a couple more Optimus of other versions. There are far more bots than Bee, Optimus, and Megs.

    Yeah, but I don't mind.
    Optimus is a cash cow and keeps the licence viable.

    I do agree about the main bots though.
    I believe it has to do with R&D/licensing vs interest, but a broader list of characters would be nice.
    Cliffjumper & basically any other seeker (Starscream) would be an easy remoulding with minimal effort if I'm not mistaken.

    As for the other properties.... I need a DOTM Ironhide and AOE Lockdown in Premium scale. Need. o_O

    I mentioned to the 3A booth at TFcon L.A. that they need to make an AOE Lockdown. He said that he also wanted to do it but his bosses don't like doing Decepticons since the Autobots sell much better. Personally I think that is crazy, I would love some premium size Decepticons.

    Maybe they just need to do the right Decepticons? I mean aren't Soundwave, Megatron and Shockwave (especially if they were done in the BB movie style) money in the bank?

    Awww crap. Looks like I’m buying another Optimus. I was kind of hoping it wouldn’t look this good so I could save some money.
    Goodbye dollar bills.:(

    Kinda weird we’re getting Blitzwing then. But in a good way. Maybe because he looks enough like Starscream to appeal to the A-list collectors.

    Soundwave and Shockwave would be great in this line, and if we’re talking screentime they’re not faring too bad compared to Blitzwing. I guess Dropkick and Shatter are more likely though?

    And.... ordered.

    Ironically, I'd skip Dropkick & Shatter. They feel too "Bay-esque" to me compared to the others in this line.

    Just PO'd this Prime but will wait to get Bee and BW discounted later.

    Starscream and Soundwave would be the only other two that are must PO's for me.

    I have yet to see (since 2015) a 3A TF figure discounted, so please report back here if/when you do.

    I don't keep up with 3A so I wouldn't know. And if that's the usual case with these, I'm also ok never owning BW or BB either.

    I would love a Shatter in this line. I LOVE her design and so far toyworld may pull it off and we have no indication anyone else including Hasbro is trying.

    Okay I have ToyWorld’s Freedom Leader preordered and I just preordered this guy through BBTS. I wanted to get a preorder in just in case. Not sure I need both but this looks so good.
