    That, I can not say, though I picture it as a very glorious day whichever way you decide! However, I started with DOTM Bee, and Beetlebee will be my 7th, and in my opinion, they have each improved, if even slightly, on the previous release. Soooo....

    My repaired Prime finally showed up today. Had no issues moving the waist. Looks amazing. So excited to have him back! Looks fantastic next to Bee

    Quite a random question but I’ve noticed on the 3A Prime that on the gauntlet piece that you change out for the section with peg that holds the Shield, there seems to be this plastic film around the peg section, is this suppose to removed? And if yes does anyone know it’s purpose?

    Mine had no such film, I even just double checked. I would assume left from manufacturing, perhaps like a masking tape?

    Mine has some white around the edge of the peg that looks like stress marks, but I think that’s because I may have moved the shield with it still attached. Do you have a picture of the film? I’m curious to see what it looks like

    Nothing like that with mine. I'm assuming from manufacturing.

    Holy shit this thing’s amazing!!!

    So worth the money and waiting a whole year and one day exactly to receive him! And he’s HUGE! So detailed and beautiful I can’t describe. The sword is so big I can hold it in my hand!

    Exactly! 3A is really killing it with all of these, in my opinion!! I originally had no plans to have so many and yet here I am with a bunch of them and wanting and waiting for more!

    He has such PRESENCE it's amazing! I haven't even really posed him or anything yet. I'm still just admiring the details. I don't even know if I'll take his shield out of the box til tomorrow or the next day. And I love how solid he is! If I don't purposefully move any pieces I can pick him up and carry him around and nothing will move. This design, while not quite as transformery as he probably should have been, is really impressive and has such a good balance of intimidating and heroic. He looks both bulky and strong and fast and agile.

    Can someone tell me what battery type I need? I packed his instructions away by accident.

    Yes, instructions call for AG13, which has multiple crossovers. 1548871735187712696177.jpg 15488717770411046193018.jpg

    You'll love it! Very cool to switch between the two colors, just another impressive element!
