    As I promise, I sold my KO and I bought the genuine DLX Bumblebee to support the incredible job that ThreeZero makes with this figures.

    I didn't find a thread for Bumblebee, so I post the pictures here. If this is the wrong thread, my apologies.

    I finally got Bumblebee too. I really didn't expect to get into non-transforming figures but now I've pre-ordered Sounwave and Blitzwing too... My poor monies!

    Hey guys! I've got my own Optimus recently, and I'm having some trouble swapping the hands (using the regular fists it came with currently). They're incredibly difficult to get on, as the little pegs they're on keep moving. I'm also really uncomfortable with the amount of force I have to use to get them on. Does anyone have any tips on how to swap the hands? Thanks :)

    Has there been any reported cases of two of the same parts or missing pieces?

    No, but everything can be possible. In general nobody talked about issues or missing parts. The general issue with this figure are parts without weathered effect paint.

    This and Bumblebee were my first 'premium' non transforming figures...i really like them! So many figures, especially in the 3rd party world, break or are awful to transform. So i pick these DLX guys above those from Toyworld or Transcraft etc.

    I have since gotten a FlamesToys Tarn, which is AMAZING...great companion to my MMC Tarn.

    Would totally be in for a Bayformer DLX Megatron.

    Can recommend this Prime, 100%. Especially around the same price as the TW version.

    Thank you so much!!. :) 

    I had premium transformable figures... And the destination was the same: I sold them. As you said, they are VERY weak, easy to break and they have tons of QC issues... In other words, they're transforming figures that you can't transform. I prefer playability over aesthetics, if I buy a figure that I can't touch... Then I sold them. But this DLX has playability and perfect display features!.

    I started to sold all my masterpiece figures (Toyworld, Element, Legendary, Black Mamba, BA Prime, etc) and I jumped to DLX Optimuses and Bumblebees. :lol 

    Now I'm planning to buy ROTF Prime... :lol
