    If I had to guess, I'd say to get all of that panel lining and gritty look, they may have used some sort of charcoal powder that u rub in and it goes into grooves like panel lining. I thought usually in art applications you'd spray some sort of sealer over it so that it doesn't rub off. Not sure if that this happened for the copies included in the reviews (sample copies?)

    I made a rough scale estimation based on a review allover the internet. Mind you it's not perfect because of a different angle and POV. blitzqing scale.jpg

    I think scale wise, they are fine. Bit shorter than the various Optimus Primes, 1.5 times as tall as most of the movie BB

    Just wondering which is better. $20 more for unknown Zeta or just go for the BMB...

    LoL. I guess it is a requirement of the sponsor.

    Yeah I’ll probably cancel This one. Hands may look cool, but I just have no reason to not wait on zeta’s. Black mamba isn’t known for good products or selling out fast anyways.

    Me too, now I’m almost certainly gonna get Zeta if I’m getting a Blitzwing. Hands are important but solidity and quality is more important to me.

    I am still struggling. I believe Zeta’s will have much better quality but I do like the wings and print of BMB’s.

    The figure being light worries me. Probably fragile. Hope Zetas has some weight.

    It’s BMB so if it head heavy, it would collapse under its own weight :lol

    What's frustrating about this figure is that it's so close to perfect. Both the robot mode and jet mode looks amazing. If only they could tab in the panels better and improve the joints, this would have been amazing all around. He did say his was a pre-production model, so maybe there's still hope? Or just hope Zeta also knocks it out of the park.
