    Wheeljack? He actually managed to crack Soundwave's face plate in their S2 relic 1v1.

    Also interested in seeing how their Airachnid turns out... considering that the bar set by the official releases is squarely underground.

    So, either they make an entirely new mold, or they adds a whole lot of extra transformation steps because there's a lot of hinges i don't recognize there. Either way, really intrigued on how the final product will look like.

    They’re the same figure. I had this same question a bit ago. For some reason the numbering is always confused when being listed but there’s only two versions: the chrome and the battle damaged.

    I really want them to release a third reissue of their Optimus Prime 2.0, I can't find one with a decent price at the moment, even Megatron is cheaper

    Well this thread Buying Transformers on Taobao might help you. I live in asia so I got a different method of ordering the toy.

    I just checked this thread as I quite enjoy the reviews of APC Toys and if they're making an Airachnid that actually is good and accurate (if not accurate then surely good), then I will order at the chance I get.

    I hope if they're going to do Bumblebee, Bumblebee will be an improved version of the FE (no loose parts) and do a repaint/retool to make Hot Shot. Why? I just want to fill my gap in my Wreckers lol.

    oh snap, how'd I not know this existed till now? Prime and especially Megatron are definitely catching my eye. Arcee's way too big for my taste, that's the one figure where I went with the RID release not the first edition

    definitely gonna be keeping an eye on this thread if we're really gonna get a real Airachnid

    The chest section of the FE Bumblebee were extremely loose from what I heard.

    The chest section tabs together with hooks on both sides and is pretty inelegant, including covering up the Autobot logo. But otherwise, mine has never been loose. It could definitely benefit from a redesign just to have the logo visible.
