    It's up on BBTS for $480 + $4 shipping. $30 discount and cheaper shipping cost but you'll get the figure 1-2 months later than ordering from Threezero directly.

    Looks like Threezero charges shipping now instead of offering free international shipping so their website would be $518 + $20+ shipping. :eek:

    One to open and add to the display at home, one for the old apartment, and one to keep MOC. Praise the Threezero gods! 73FBF1B0-C714-47C8-827F-D2E6AC6924B3.png

    I agree about the movies but the designs are subjective to everyone's taste. I personally think the mix between the iconic G1 and bayverse elements turned out to be something really cool and unique. And let's be honest, Threezero is still a business and wasn't going to pass on making the most out of this movie which I'm glad they did because I want the best possible representation of that Prime and Bee on my shelf and they executed them masterfully.

    BTW you mentioned their lack of different characters and while I too would love more from the first bayverse trilogy, I think we should give them some credit for coming up with Blitzwing and Soundwave as well.

    With the world the way it is now, it makes you wonder if a lot of these toys that will be released later on in the year to next year will be produced or pushed back even further?

    You know, different designs etc. but seeing this figure offered for $500 is making me reconsider buying the Flame Toys Optimus that costs $450.

    I POed my 2.

    If the country was in a better state, I'd be hyped for this. But it's tough.

    From my limited experience of 3A Premium figures, it will be insanely detailed in hand but still a fun figure to play with. Plus it will sort of scale with Beast Wars Mps.

    Great-looking figure overall. But his chest is too narrow. And that makes his hips look too big, like a third-party Arcee figure.

    I'm pretty sure that's just how he's shaped in the movie

    This is one of the BEST looking bumblebee optimus figure, next to yolopark's. drooling over its detail. DLX is as awesome but the details on this is awesome-mer!

    Been thinking of getting the DLX but I think it'll probably be worth going for this premium one despite the huge price gap. maybe PO now and save up to pay off later. there's more than like a year to save up. I read it's expected to be released sometime November 2021. (do ppl usually wait this long to get a figure?..man the agony of waiting!)..let's see!

    yolopark's seems to be even better in level of detail and articulation, from their promos shots on unpainted unit, but it's way too big for me to display and should probably cost more than this (though their official reply to some query says "not to worry, it will not break our wallet", I wonder)

    seems there isn't too much hype or talk about this premium figure from threezero. probably got overshadowed by the newly launched yolopark statue eh

    I think that there isn’t a whole lot of hype because, knowing Threezero, Premium Scale OP will probably be delayed to about December 2021/January 2022.

    This figure looks stellar, but I just can’t get excited for something more than a year out.
