    Really disappointed if these aren’t happening. Was really looking forward to their Soundwave. :(

    This was dead long before Covid happened.

    A shame, too, they looked pretty damn good, especially the big Bumblebee.

    This seems the original source of the pics. They may be out by the end of July.

    Oh what the fuck these are still happening!?

    OH WHAT THE FUCK THEY'RE PRE-PAINTED AND LOOK GOOD DRY-BUILT?


    There's two sizes, one of five-ish inch ones, then a larger scale of I want to say seven inch, but I think only Bumblebee was confirmed for the big scale last we heard.

    Pretty small, but if they are around deluxe price or lower, I'm down. Though I will say the bigger line interests me more.

    I would imagine around deluxe price due to them being prepainted. Which I’m cool with.

    I just wonder now where they’ll be available?

    How did it take this long for actually great model kits that aren't Kotobukiya?

    Oof l don't dig the fact that most of the parts are pre-built. I personally like more complex model kits. Though, cool to see they're still happening.

    I saw the promo pick first and thought it looked alright, then i saw the lack of parts like you said and immediately was turned off

    Keep in mind that these are very small, probably about small HG size. There are bigger kits of BB and Optimus coming, which will probably feature a more complex build.

    Also this simply isn't Bandai or Kotobukiya, so just don't expect complexity and quality of that level. I for one am happy that they're balancing out the low partscount with paint at all.

    I’m pretty sure the small kits are designed to be more accessible to kids and toy collectors. Think Entry Grade but with actual posability and prepainted parts. Assuming the plastic quality is up to snuff, this Bumblebee at least strikes me more as a constructible action figure than detailed model.
