    I only have DLX Bumblebee, but out of the box the joints were tight, almost too tight but it feels good. Since the inner-structure and joints are die-cast/metal it'll probably hold up for a while.

    Too good. Check out the articulation explained by a ThreeZero staff.

    Can anyone translate what that staff member was saying in the video? Or at least parts of it?

    Can’t wait for this guy, he’s my most anticipated figure right now. I really hope they can get to Soundwave and Starsceam too.

    He’s one of my most anticipated figures too. Can’t wait, this will be my first ThreeZero figure, so I hope it exceeds my expectations

    Nothing much really. He's just going through the articulation. Some stuff that popped up:
    - He's quite hefty and will satisfy chogokin collectors. He says that it's harder to make out intricate details (unless done by hand) on diecast which is why the diecast is mostly within the inner frame.
    - Gun is just a lump of plastic (that is weathered nicely).
    - The hip assembly is on a slider to make more room so that the thighs don't scratch against the crotch armour
    - Shoulder joints have the highest chance of scratching if you aren't careful (read the instructions!)
    - The sculpt is based on his appearance on earth. Apparently there are some differences between the cybertron and earth versions, mainly to do with the wheels and the arms. He said that there's no confirmation of a cybertron version coming out but its always a possibility (probably depending on how well it sells)
    - Details are especially precise which he says is the case for all of the dlx line compared to their other products. Apparently its something to do with the production and design but I'm not entirely sure what he means since I don't work in the industry.
    - Eyes light up by pressing his head crest as demonstrated at 9:49. Apparently it's more expensive doing it that way but it'll last longer.
    - They praised the engineering for the ab crunch (mainly to do with the aesthetics and how they managed to minimise breakup of the sculpt for the back)

    The back is what gets me every time I see pics of this guy. The detail, articulation, paint, all so excellent! I want him but I won't be going all-in on the 3zero stuff (I have Bumblebee but I've stopped at that) but damn if I don't want this guy and Blitzwing very badly.
