    I think it’s the eye area but it looks fine to me.

    Honestly a lot of these Bumblebee’s outside 3Z have the wrong shade of yellow, even the MPM did.

    It’s subtle, but Optimus’ face is like a half millimetre too low in his helmet, and the post for the neck is too long. Just makes him look ever so slightly off. Though if we’re talking accuracy then Trumpeter has never really had that on lock, and these new ROTB kits don’t look any more accurate than the AMKs.

    TBH I never had a problem with Bee’s colour. Looks fine to me.

    What are you on? They look as accurate as DLX figures

    Prime's head doesn't look accurate, and his proportions are definitely wrong. His arms are oversized and his torso looks too small, or at least too thin.

    Though in classic ROTB Prime fashion, I actually think the proportional inaccuracies improve its looks. Except the head.

    I got my SK-09 Prime kit yesterday from ShowZ and built it last night.

    It's a nice enough kit, everything assembled well. Paint looks fine, though the painted red bits could use a second coat or a lighter base coat over the dark plastic IMO. Red is weird like that.

    I just wish they'd go ahead and double the size. At least make it average HG size. He'd be really good at HG Unicorn size.

    Does anyone have a comparison between the Prime kit and Luckycat Prime?

    Started working on my Optimus kit. Very nice so far. Probably fine to build right out of the box but I did do a little silver dry brushing and a little bit of black wash then gloss clear coated.

    The dry brushing and the gloss makes it really pop! It's a shame the headsculpt sucks because the rest of it is really nice.

    That repaint is far too popular to be such a low number. Hopefully some of those 500 will make it online.

    Coincidently Lucky Cat just teased their Nemesis Prime repaint as well however.
