    Where did you hear these reports? Every review I’ve seen has said Bee is super solid and an amazing figure.


    As for Prime, I’m really eager to get it if it’s around blitzwing’s price. Will be a great standalone piece. I think the head is slightly too narrow, but that’s fine

    Outstanding! Already have DLX Bee and Blitzwing locked in so this is a no brainer.

    I think I'm probably gonna wait for the inevitable MPM, but this looks absolutely gorgeous. Loved Prime's design in Bumblebee, but I think I'll prefer having a transformable version that's closer to MP-44's height.
    So tempting though!

    One or two here. Plus dozens of problems with the previous ones and nightmare experience with customer service.

    Freaking bought!!! I'm big fan of the new deluxe size. Premium scale is amazing but I only have so much room.

    Once I saw the new photos of this just now all I'm waiting on is the pre-order to go up and it's purchased! Really love the way this looks.

    Wow. Instabuy. First time I've seen a non transforming Optimus and thought that. He will be joining my wall of Optimuses? Optimii?:D

    The deluxe line just seems like an all out winner. The larger scale they do looks great but is so far beyond prices I can justify. These are right in that sweet spot of high end figures around what 1/6" scale stuff like Hot Toys is doing - where the figures like Blitzwing and Optimus are just expensive enough to be far beyond the quality of normal collectibles but juuuuuuust affordable enough to budget for without crushing the bank. I'm all in on anything they do at this scale.

    Man the head on ss-38 is weird. This is how the head of ss38 should have been.

    Exactly I thought the same thing. Also SS-38 uses the 2007 movie Optimus hands (Gray hands, verticle wrist detail, as opposed to blue with horizontal detail)

    Jeez, that is beautiful! And I thought the Studio Series figure looked good! Great to see this stunning design in such a quality, plastic and die-cast form. Glad to hear that he\'ll be somewhat afordable too!

    That's not a bad idea, but the Furai kits are more like High Grade models. I want THIS! only with more Freightliner and less flame decals.

    The DMK is a Takara property, but it's the detailing and size difference that matters.

    If only the SS version was painted like that (even though it\'s a great toy regardless).
