Accessory for SS Sentinel Prime, Bumblebee and Blackout
Ironhide: why do i hear boss music
3 upgrades in one pack? Odd. Still interested though the Bee parts will be lost on me.
Big fan of DNA's other stuff; their Grimlock set was so hot.
They should do an accessory pack for all the Constructicons.
Im sure they have one planned, they're probably just waiting for Overload.
Personally, I'm underwhelmed by the parts for Bumblebee (mostly due to alt mode placement), but I love the parts for the other two
Not really sure why this is 3 packs in 1. I'm really only interested in the Sentinel set so the other two will probably get sold.
Regardless, the Sentinel set does everything I want it to do and has excellent paint so I'm happy.
what if I only want one of the sets? Would they ever offer them in separate batches?
I smell a preorder
I'm guessing for one thing, because no one would have ever ordered that Bee set by itself?
Hah nice. DNA Design's stuff has been pretty stellar for me. I have 'Bee and Blackout and I wanted to skip on Sentinel because of the lack of a shield but hey, 3rd Party comes to the rescue!
Can't wait to have these pieces. Another outstanding job by DNA Design. Just a few minor nitpicks / questions:
- Wish they would have included a pillar or two for the Sentinel portion. So glad they gave him a brand new sword, though. The stock one is serviceable but this is perfect.
- I feel like Bee's parts are a bit too shiny silver as opposed to a darker or gunmetal color.
- Are Blackout's hands replacements (i.e., you knock out the pin) or just tab over those spots? Not sure...
This is now up for pre-order on BBTS:
DK-16 Gear Master Accessory Series Upgrade Kit
I just did and added it to my POL with the Jetwing Prime kit.
Sweet! Although, I don't know why they're all together. These three characters don't have much to do with each other (if you count that that Bee design is from a different movie than Sentinel).
If anyone wants just the bee and/or blackout parts let me know and we can split the set! I NEED those sentinel parts though. He's an awesome figure but he absolutely needs that gun and shield. I'm fine with the included sword (mostly because it integrates into the alt mode) but I will probably spray this one silver and use it for pics. It's a really nice touch that the original sword parts can store on the shield too!
Finally some good news!
Blackout hands are in dire need of a wrist swivel, and an unmasked Bumblebee head would be nice. But Sentinel's accessories are perfect and that alone is worth the purchase to me.
it doesn’t look like these do. Just articulated fingers
Too bad. This makes the blackout parts half useless to me. The Shockwave lab hands are still essential! It seems like the new rotor weapon attaches to the backs of these new hands.
Sentinel and Bee are nice....but Wei Jiang has Black Shadow so.......
I haven't collected one studio series Bumblebee figure yet, but for the Blackout and Sentinel parts, this set is totally worth $25.
I have a feeling a lot of Bumblebee parts from this kit will be hitting the junkion exchange & ebay... mine included.
I'm maybe interested in the Sentinel parts. The Blackout parts are cool, but I really hope those new hands have wrist swivels. The Bumblebee parts are a waste of plastic, though.
Those bee parts look like the worst thing this company has done yet for addons. Everything else has been pretty damn good..but if this is sold as a 3 pack set I see why..
