    Yeah, I'm not sure if I want to pay the full price for the accessories. I do really love this figure though! As someone with the threeZero SG Prime already I'm blown away by how GOOD this figure is.

    probably not, cause the hands are pretty much the only reason people buy it

    All and all, is this scale worth diving into? As far as I'm concerned, the only figures that scale relatively well with MM01 are CE Bumblebee, TMT Bumblebee, and Metagate Shatter, which are still pretty limited to warrant starting a new collection in this particular scale unlike the OS MPM scale. I'm worried that future third party BBM releases might not adhere to this scale, and I would like to avoid having a dead collection (no future releases that fit it).

    I mostly have G1 mps with, some Fans Hobby Armada and Masterforce / headmasters. I got the SG Prime version because I wanted a SG Prime representation and thought this thing is cool. And it is.

    Yeah ik, but collecting is a very expensive hobby, and it's only natural that I want no regrets after spending a good chunk of wallet.

    There's also Zeta Blitzwing, and a bunch of Cybertron designs that are in Threezero scale, and Metagate Dropkick coming up. Threezero scale is perfect if you like the BBM designs in particular.

    Well, that seals the deal. Thanks for giving me the final push. I'll be getting MM01 and CE then. I heard the Zeta Toys Blitzwing is rather finicky, so I'm skipping that one.

    the latest reissue is supposedly having all the problems fixed

    from the Bombusbee site

    Improvements in 2023 reissue version:
    1. All parts including missiles are now in 1 box
    2. Improved wings, not easy to fall apart now
    3. Improved foot joints, other joints are also tighter

    In my case, If I like the figure I get it. How can I regret getting things I love? :)

    I can't seem to find him anywhere these days. I don't know who has him restocked with 2.0 anymore.

    Aight got it.

    In my defense, I'm a complete scale nut. It doesn't matter how good the figure is if there's no other figures to go with it :v.

    Think of it this way, if you have regrets, sell X figure 10 years later for at least the same price or whatever extra the collectors are willing to pay.
    My motto neways...the motto of someone who has never sold anything online. That's my plan when I retire btw :D
