    I wish I could cancel my preorder for TLK Prime. I wanted him months ago but now I’m just annoyed by him and bummed by all the breakage issues. If I thought I’d have to wait until 2019 to get him I might not have ordered.

    I can understand where you're coming, but I don't believe you'll have much to worry about, and you'll be happy to have him once you actually get him in hand. I truly look at him, and think how fricking awesome, and AOE/TLK Prime is not my favorite of his designs.

    So cool! Looking forward to your pics!

    I hope I feel that way too!

    BTW I'm so excited for Beetle Bee who has already been shown in package on instagram which means he's coming soon!

    I'm so excited for that guy aswell, forget the MPM, I just need that Bee! (I know it's not in scale with MPM figures) We need Shatter and Dropkick in the 3A DLX scale line... And Blitzwing... And also Optimus Pri- Ah forget it, just take my money Hasbro!!

    The subtle differences between those two bees from DOTM to this Last Knight version is impressive. Looking at them all by themselves you might only notice the chest thingy they added for DOTM to be different. The arms, thighs, chest, toes, a TON has been redesigned.

    This is an awesome figure but it sucks because one he is a bit pricey and two the best one is the exclusive one which if you can even find him will be even more to get. Still an impressive figure though.

    Do someone had difficulties with changing masked and maskless face?
    I feel sorry, that you have to wait for so long! But there are some pros: I've got the Figure from the 2nd or probably 3d batch, and I hadn't any problems with the waist joint. You certainly won't be disappointed! Opening of the box was literally the brightest day of 2018 for me! Now I wake up every day, look to Optimus and have goosebumps!:D :thumb

    Certainly an impressive figure! Yes, it definitely isn't exactly as easy as it seems it should be, but not swapping it all the time either.

    Comparing the tlk duo of prime and bee to the dotm set really shows how far 3a has come.
    For the life of me I don’t know why the designer on the dotm prime chose the light blue and almost stylised his dimensions and rounded him off (as well as lacking so much detail; having them side by side is just a little weird) whereas the tlk prime walked straight out of the screen.
    Almost wish they would redo or remould the dotm prime into rotf prime and update the sculpt

    The whole bee body proportion was redone for tlk. Dotm bee is bulky whereas tlk bee is almost super deformed or child like in comparison, perhaps to get his size ready for the bee movie
    3a captures this perfectly

    Nice but TF statues are not my cup of tea.

    Am I the only one here hoping that Unique Toys will have a go at TLK Bumblebee? After seeing how impressive both their AOE Lockdown and TLK Optimus Prime was, I'm confident they can pull off their magic on this Bumblebee. I've been fond of how it looks especially in alt mode.

    Nice! Photos and lighting look great. I gotta say, with Bumblebee movie dominating the news lately, it’s nice to see badass Bayformer Bee in his Camaro form again.
