    Just had my thumb on it when moving the arm. It already felt slightly wiggly out of the box so idk, peg might already have been weak for some reason. That or the top peg is meant to have glue so that both pegs withstand pressure, but mine only had it on one?

    Could be. Though I'm not sure if these pieces were glued to begin with. My SG Prime's like to pop off on occasion, on this guy they're pretty snug.

    Potentially also caused during the packing of the figure, if the clamshell was secured with pressure applied to the arm. My first Bumblebee, I had to reach out to them to replace one of the chest pieces for that reason.

    Threezero are excellent at sorting you out with this kind of thing though, annoying as it is. So if you don’t want to attempt gluing the arm panel (I would still recommend securing the ab piece with a dab, easy fix), fill out the warranty info, email it to them then once the warranty is confirmed as activated, hit them up. Send the photos you have posted here and they should come through for you. Probably send you another arm.

    This one was made after they changed their name, so it’s Threezero. Technically doesn’t matter since it’s the same company, but it is Threezero now.

    They are still releasing figures under the ThreeA name. My Premium scale Blitzwing that was released a few weeks back came under the ThreeA name. You’d think they’d be more consistent now.

    I’m surprised you have had issues with your Prime. I own three of them and have had zero issues. They are super solid figures that I pose a ton. I guess you just got a dud.

    BTW, if you got this through Sideshow, I bet they’d replace it. Sideshow has great customer service.

    I am freaking out on this chaos,
    those who are still contemplating , best is stick with the premium stuff. Their premium line definitely going to be improved from 3A. Some 3A stuff were wobbly for some reason, but threezero fixed that on the blitzwing already.

    Alright, let me apologise for not being too specific.
    I mean I am shocked because of the issues that octo went through

    Most of my problems seem to be that things weren’t glued in like they were supposed to be, in like, 2 places. otherwise the figure is fine.

    The shoulder pad piece is supposed to be able to pop off. So it doesn't completely snap.

    Well as I showed in the pics, Shoulder pad 100% has a snapped peg, so it failed to pop without snapping ironically.

    In that case, mine may be broken as well? Idk it doesn't fall off too often. But it does pop off at times.

    Leaked look at 3Zero DLX ROTB Prime
    No, I think it looks good (honestly the right type of silver used is just right - not too bright and clear).
    I'm sure 3Zero will do something similar for a DLX ROTB Prime retool (just with new pieces).

    Thanks! I used a silver acrylic pen. And I used Sepia colored ink in light amounts on top of that to give it that "been in battle" look.

    And that leaves me to wonder how they'll incorporate the bull bar into Primes ROTB design. Should be interesting!

    I'm very curious as well cause I feel like that gonna go somewhere and you wouldn't put that on the front of the truck for it not to. Maybe it will be over the shoulders like fan art done have shown but we'll see. The other ROTB toys we know are coming this year (now under Cyberverse) should hopefully give us an idea of how that will be done (and at least one of the Prime ROTB toys will be accurate to the actual design unlike the Smash Changer figure).

    Here are a couple that look pretty cool.
    I like the first one better because it just adds to what was already a great design. The second one reminds me of Energon Prime, and that's a pretty mid design. If there's anything I'd change, it's for the bull bar to flip upside down and slightly deform. B9C02700-DF91-4617-B007-19E410D7FD65.jpeg 27FB9518-946E-4622-A348-BFC0106E3A3A.jpeg

    I think the first one is the better of the 2. I feel like having the grill guard be on his lower chest area is gonna restrict his movement a bit.

    Happen to my shoulder too and yes I agree they should not be falling off. At the same token, it is very easy to fix.
