    I actually ordered a second for this reason, just in case there are any defects. I want to make sure I have a good copy. If both are good then I will probably sell the extra. I'm sure there will be an aftermarket for this piece.

    Should I give up on TW and get this instead?

    I would. TW's suffers from the high water pants syndrome, the chest is too wide, and the torso doesn't lock in place.

    The only downside to this one that I've noticed is the gap behind his upper thigh due to the transformation.

    But in all fairness, if there's anything else we'll find out when the reviews start showing up.

    Edit: Steve Urkle pants syndrome. And the gap on the back of his thigh is only obvious if you have the legs out far enough to be noticeable.

    Depends on what you're wanting out of it. I haven't had issues, but there are others who say that they're having plenty of issues.

    I wanted it because it looked the closest to BB prime and could also transform. There are some other nice lookimg transforming primes coming out though. This one looks like a nice option if you intend on playing with it. If you just want to display him, TW is worth a shot.

    As curious as I am about this figure it is pointless to buy something that is already being scalped by retailers and also no after sales service.

    since it seems to be made by the same factory as the model wizard guys I say the quality is kinda hit or miss based on their TLK OSKO Megatron.

    In this picture the figure seems to have the chest more wide open, I think probably will can be positioned in the right shape.

    Yes. I am a bit disappointed when I see this truck hitch because it is easy to lose if it need to be removed during robot mode

    Personally, I don't care about the hitch. I'll just leave it in the box.

    I’m betting a 3D printable piece can be designed to have the chest angled instead of flat. More parts forming but

    I was expecting this to sell out much faster... Perhaps there is significantly more stock available than I thought or the demand just isn't there.

    I had a cheap preorder in for the Toy world one, but once the retailer got it in (Baba), he wanted an additional $60 shipping because of the pandemic causing them to use different services. That, along with the apparent qc issues made me cancel and get a refund. This looks almost as good, and is cheaper, so I bought it this morning.

    I have owned several WJ items and for the most part they are what you expect for the price. None feel like 5 star top shelf items, but everyone of them feels like a toy meant to be played with.

    I have the Wei Jiang AOE G1 Optimus and think it's gorgeous. The fact that this is sort of made by them actually made me more comfortable with getting it.
