    Im finally part of the group!
    I’ve been going back and forth on if I want a 3A figure for years now.

    I finally pulled the trigger and I cannot believe how great these figures are!

    I got this guy from BBTS about two weeks ago but haven’t been able to sit down and fully inspect it yet. Took it out of the box for a few minutes to look for glaring issues and didn’t see any thankfully, but have to look closer later; just been so busy with flight school. But the detail and craftsmanship is utterly incredible, and for the price is a steal. Much larger than I imagined too. Sometime in the near future I can join the cult properly once he’s inspected and posed for display lol

    Oh gotcha thank you. Finally question any idea how to go about applying it to the bicep cut? I don't see any way to disassemble the arm. My plan as of now is to just drip into the joint.

    My way of handling it was to dip a Q-tip into the liduid and try to rub it on and get some of it in between the joints.

    Outstanding, many thank you! Just ordered some. Because the future is not doing it and this is my all time fav Optimus figure.

    Edit: worked great, so happy!

    All right so I've had good figure for only several months but I've gotta ask, does anyone know the longevity of these figures having die-cast skeletons? How much different can it be from a regular plastic figure? Aside from being metal.

    Is there a good place to buy this from? I wanted to go with sideshow but their shipping is insanely expensive and they misleadingly don't allow this prime for their $15 off first purchase.

    BBTS has it in stock for 229.99 and 4 dollar flat rate shipping, should still be cheaper than Sideshow.

    can’t personally speak for BBTS, however.
