    So I just realised that when trying to force Prime's hand on I broke his wrist guard :( . Have reached out to ThreeZero CS about spares but I'm not hopeful as they've probably run out by now.

    Sorry for you!! :( 

    If you warm the hands, they'll come off easy.

    It's a thin but flexible part, I always been extremely careful with the wrists. Never force any part. It's a golden rule. Warm up first!.

    Thanks for the tip :)  I'll be sure not force the hands from now on.

    One of these guys hands made me nervous as hell when I switched mine. I forget which, may have been Prime.

    Sorry to hear that happened.

    Thanks mate. Well good news is Threezero CS replied and they have offered to fix the arm and send it back to me if I send it to them. That's pretty good customer support I thought. Would never get anything like that from Takara that's for sure.

    The figure probably has a guarantee card inside the box. It's recommended to fill and send it to them.

    Well I just got an email from ThreeZero saying that that Optimus' arm has been repaired already. It was supposed to take up to 8 weeks but they got it done in 4.
    Got to be happy with that.

    So my Optimus' left arm arrived in the mail today from ThreeZero. It looks like they may have actually given me a new arm rather than just repairing the old one.
    I first contacted CS on 14 Sep and today is 9 Nov so that's about 8 weeks all up. Quite happy with ThreeZero's CS. Make sure you fill in the warranty card whenever you get a new figure is all I can say.

    I traveled to farm and brought Optimus with me, but somehow his wheel didn't arrive with him. It has a month now and I looked for it everywhere

    Hello, everyone! Brand new to DLX collecting, and wanted to ask: Are there any aftermarket parts to turn DLX Bumblebee Optimus into his Cybertronian version? What's a viable option to have a Cybertronian version featured alongside the DLX Earth-based mode?

    'Fraid the only Cybertronian BBM Prime you'll find is in the Premium line. No Company has made any add-ons for DLX lines.

    Sorry for the newbie question, but what does the Premium line offer over the DLX? Just different models?

    Premium line offers larger figures with higher attention to detail, and if you thought the DLX figures were highly detailed, the Premium Line takes it up a notch! Also DLX Transformers line has figures that range from 7-12 inch figures while the Premium line has figures twice as large, and Obviously twice as expensive.

    Yes indeed there is. Hit up Dino Model on Facebook. The upgrade is by EMP I think.
