    I remember that. It was @Jacer's Blitzwing that smelled bad. For whatever reason, I found it hilarious when I read it. I'm sorry Jacer. :lol 

    Anyways, I'm curious, did it ever stop smelling bad?

    They are hand assembled. It was bean burrito day in the factory cafeteria.

    When I first opened mine it had some kind of thin factory grease/oil or something on it that made it almost slippery. But within a day it had evaporated and is now completely dry and is just a solid figure.

    All my 3A / ThreeZero DLX figures have smelt great, kind of a fresh paint smell?!
    Only transformer that stunk for me was a KO MP-29 Shockwave. However it smelt of strong chemicals that actually gave me a headache, I had to air the room for hours!

    Thanx for the feedback. I guess the smell of factory oil describes it the best. The smell has always been associated with a former colleague, who was always fuming in the workshop ^^

    Let’s hope it fades away soon J Otherwise I love this guy

    It appears to be a common “issue” with threeA figures. ^^ Someone noted it smells like an auto parts store.


    3A Toys/Rebellion Press Release


    Still not totally happy and a little concerned about that smell, but there is hope that the smell will go away. Till then, I’ll keep my distance or hope that hay fever starts [​IMG]

    I recently got a misb Tlk Op, and he smelled strongly like a new car for the first week or so despite being from 2017. Which was nice, sort of appropriate, but it’s all but gone now thanks to a drafty house. I think it’s that the plastic they use traps odor well.

    Fresh highly painted figures that go into sealed plastic trays come out smelling like paint? Who would've thought that?

    Drat, drat, and triple drat!!!

    One of these came up for sale on ebay UK (yes, I still don't have one :oops: )
    It was one of those listings where you can bid or make an offer and I, in my 'wisdom', decided to bid... so of course I got outbid, but then the other bidder proceeded to bid another two times on top of that! Hell knows what their top bid is now, but I bet there's now no way I'd be getting that for less than I could just buy one outright for without the faffing about of bidding :rolleyes: 

    Live and learn :p

    Just got mine. Looks fantastic! Worth every penny! Would LOVE for Hasbro & ThreeZero to team up for all the G1 characters to be made in this design style. Absolutely lovely!
    I love the MPM series, but this just explodes with details.

    I feel sad now. Mine didn't stink. There was a light plastic/paint smell, but not anywhere near like the stench I've gotten from some of the Weijiang KOs. Some of those are borderline chemical weapons.

    Put in a preorder for Soundwave/Ravage. Then all I need is Shockwave and I'll be happy. If ThreeA make Wheeljack, Ratchet, Brawn, Arcee, etc, I'll be ecstatic!

    Oh, no doubt, no doubt! I got Prime opened, ran to the TV and streamed Bumblebee in glorious 4K, and tried to mimic each screen of Prime during the cybertron cut scenes. Absolutely fantastic. Only difference is the final render of Prime has a smoother facemask compared to the toy. I crave more! Soundwave cannot come soon enough! Just absolutely amazing! Was going to pass on this for the Toyworld figure. Glad I didn't. This thing is pure gold!

    Never thought I would spend over $100 for a figure, how weak I am!
    It would be perfect if 3A Threezero made hands with finger joints, it will be more fun to play with. Maybe because I'm used to with transformable figures having such things.
