    Agreed. The back is a great example of what you can't get from a transformable figure. The way the plates on his back flex as you crunch his abs—man, good stuff.

    Blitzwing is so good that it just makes me even more excited to get this figure in hand.

    Do you have Blitzwing? If so, are there any special precautions to take when handling 3A/Z figures? The videos of all look like people are handling them normally without fear, but I just wanna know ahead of time.

    Yup, I have one. I wouldn't say there are any special precautions. I find mine to be really resilient and in fact, I ended up dropping mine (accidentally, of course) on my tile floor and everything was fine. The thing with Blitzwing is that he's fairly pointy so it makes it slightly harder to handle, though, it's nothing I'd knock a few points off for. If I were to say anything negative, it'd be about the butt flaps as they're prone to falling off. They're on ball joints so they're easy to throw back on at least.

    Easily the BEST photos of this figure. If these photos don't sell you on this figure, nothing will.

    This is going to be the best Optimus figure in my TF collection, perhaps one of the best figures in my entire collection period. I hope we all get perfect copies.

    I mean despite not transforming, this looks like one of the best Optimus figures ever made, official or third party.

    That lighting really makes him feel like he’s of the film’s creation. Beautiful.

    Carful. It’s shipping in 3 different batches so it all depends on when you pre ordered.

    He looks so good, I really hope ThreeZero continues this line with Shatter and Dropkick in their triple changer forms.
