    So when is Blitzwing actually out? I know domestic retailers have later dates, but IIRC he's due this month, no?

    I keep checking ebay but so far there's only one overpriced listing with a shipping eta of 30-83 days. That's not reassuring.

    i get the feeling blitzwing will eventually eke out and then the line will quietly die out as the bb movie designs are left to languish in obscurity :(

    I fucking hope not. They've got so many models already prototyped, even TLK Bee and Optimus. I want this line to continue so we can eventually get ROTB releases.

    I personally think the line will be okay; I'm surprised to see it continuing in the first place so it obviously had to have sold well enough.

    yeah there's so much i want from them, but them, yolopark and threezero are all such sparse releases (for good reason) that to finish the entire cast is gonna extend well into 2023, and i wonder if they'll wanna bother doing what seems to be
    one off designs for now, since ROTB is wholly new designs except for optimus, BB and maybe arcee?)

    i desperately want them to succeed too, give me the bumblebee movie designs in relatively high end form and i'll be happy. i hope trumpeter gets their 15cm bumblebee out badly, all of the MP scale options are... not great.

    i see 2 listings on ebay who also have it for basically the same price, so i don't think it's going to be like Bumblebee where you can get it like $15 cheaper than HLJ/amiami/BBTS

    I doubt anywhere outside of China or Japan will see these domestically. I never heard of anyone finding Bumblebee in the US or UK.

    Sorry if this is a stupid question but, are they gonna release all those characters in 2 scales?? And is the bigger Bee already out?

    I'm unsure at the moment?? I would personally imagine BB and Prime would be the only ones being released in the bigger scales while everyone gets a small scale release.

    And no, I haven't even seen pre-orders for the bigger Bee

    Blitzwing, Optimus, and Soundwave were all announced way, way back in the first post, but I’d be surprised if we got more than Bee and Prime. That line seems to be in scale going off the recent Bee pics, so Blitzwing would be HUGE.

    Wait, Blitzwing and Soundwave were announced for the bigger scale? I must have missed that.

    Edit: Oh wow, I don't think I ever noticed the middle shelf was for the bigger scale.

    I really hope the TLK Prime one has all the proper flames. I like my Primes FLAMING.

    i imagine it will, since I don't think they're SUPER prevalent in robot mode so they can probably pull it off
