    Honestly, they should be investing their time getting the bigger version of bumblebee released instead.

    I still can’t believe how long it’s taken Trumpeter to release these things.

    And that big Bumblebee was shown off years ago.

    I was so hyped for their stuff at first, but at their pace it's hard to care. It just seems random whenever they release stuff.

    They should just cancel the line. It's gonna be decades before they actually do anything.

    true but i think just canceling it is far worse than just waiting, even if it is a long time between releases.

    Unfortunate that they're not quite large enough to produce more quickly.

    The issue isn't that they're small. They also produce a lot of model kits of WWII and military vehicles all the time. The problem is they kind of shot themselves in the foot because they weren't used to engineering kits that pose like action figures. If they're having a hard time getting the small ones out, I can't imagine how long it's going to take them to actually mass produce the larger ones. It's such a shame because they have potential to become a highly praised line, but the long release dates are hurting them.

    That makes more sense. Perhaps it's also due to them underestimating the popularity of the figures.

    This is accurate. I've built Trumpeter ship kits for a couple decades now. They move at a much different pace then the toy market. The modeler and the toy collector are a different animal. I'm predominantly a modeler that strays into the toy world for transformers, it's somewhat odd to me still to see Transformers inside Trumpeter boxes.
