    Wanted their employees to return the extra $2.00 per hour/hazard pay, and when caught, they basically said "Oh, uh, I mean...it's true, but that wasn't meant for public eyes."
    They had threatened to ruin their employees via their credit and taking it to court, if necessary. It was disgusting. They sent a letter to one employee demanding $461.00 bucks back.
    They've since reversed it, but it was embarrassing for them and disgusting for everyone else. They've also extended the "hero" pay through the end of June. Can't wait for them to ask for it all back sometime this month or in August.

    Non-movie characters are surreal to me. They look so strange next to characters you’ve seen on screen. They look stranger in the old comics. I dunno, man.

    Wow, that's just shady as hell, and ok happy that they got caught!! I can't believe that they tried to do that shit!!
    What @Nemesis Baser said lol. With WJ's Bee Movie Prime being stuck in limbo, I'm really hoping that Transcraft make theirs soon!! I almost wanna ask for a refund on the WJ one, and wait for Transcraft, but I'm not super sure yet.

    Man, I'm anxious to see a prototype shot of him!! They're Bee is sooo accurate, so I'm sure their Prime will be just as accurate, but I need to at least see s prototype pic before I request a refund for my WJ preorder. Thanks bro, I really appreciate the help and effort!!

    @Reygn , any info/ help would be appreciated!

    Sadly, that is the only photo we have of it, if you could call it a photo. We do know that it will be the shortest KV OP, at about 9.5in, give or take. (Lemon Prime is CHUG scaled) I would indeed say wait for this one, given their KV Bumblebee looks that good. We probably won't be seeing prototype images of their KV OP until Fall, so it's bit if time to wait.

    If he was released with guns instead of those spike grenades, or re-shelled him into a Volkswagen van to be Dreadbot, or hell even just named him Dreadbot, I bet we would of been less harsh on him.

    Oh man, he's a bit short. I was hoping to keep all my Primes around the 11in height, but still, if he's as good as Bee, I wouldn't be opposed to just get him as a display piece for my desk, and get the WJ one to go with my BMB Beetlebee.

    Thanks for the info, I really appreciate it!! :)

    The 11+ KV OPs, Toy Lab, Toy World, and Wei Jiand aren't MPM scaled, though, if we were talking MPM scale, this wouldn't be yo scale either. A properly scaled KV OP to Bayverse MPM-4 would be about 7in. If you really want a 11+ KV OP, Toy Lab would be my recommendation, if it actually comes out, if not, just wait for Wei Jiang.

    I know, but I love my BA Prime, and he fits perfectly with my MPMs.

    Granted, now I need BA Ironhide.. assuming he ever gets released.

    If I recall correctly, WJ's Bee Movie Prime is about the same height as my BA Prime, so I kinda wanna keep that scale going for my Primes, since I feel that the MPM scale for Prime is actually too small.

    I don't know about TL's Prime though. I feel that it suffers from the same high water pants syndrome that TW's Prime does.

    What are your thoughts on this?

    Yeah I did see that part of your review, and yeah it looks terrible. The footage hasbro showed doesn’t seem to do that, however with a video like that it can always be altered. I’m more willing to trust you who has the actual copy on them rather than a promo vid
