    I'm sure it's pretty much the opposite. Big Bumblebee was supposedly coming before the rotb line, but now we have prototypes of rotb but nothing of bbm big bee? They probably just retooled him into his rotb version, or maybe one can become another by switching parts

    Same!
    Honestly I'd prefer this way because it means cheaper and they'd be smaller than my DLX collection which is just Bayverse. It also means less shelf space. As much as some of those designs appeal to me I don't think their complexity and details are enough to justify me buying a high end figure which costs too much. Those figures here for example seem to be way cheaper than 3Z but they are detailed enough for those versions of the characters. Primal for example has a sculpt way too simple for me to buy his 250$ DLX. So I'd gladly buy those

    the scale on these is all over the place someone who saw them in person said they are slightly smaller than amk but they look bigger like mpm scale so no one really knows

    it's entirely possible that it just got shifted around; they focused on the smart kit stuff, and now they're starting the bigger models, so if they're good sellers they might bring the big bbm bee out again

    Judging from the quality of the details, they might be around 5-7 inches, which would be almost the same size as the AMK series by yolopark.

    I hope they get that big bumblebee out because it actually scales perfectly with the threezero dlx figures.

    i think if they’re dlx scale the price would be cheaper than official dlx, maybe $150 tops, but i can understand the appeal in them being mpm scale

    .

    interesting, sounds like theyre roughly mpm scale. Not sure the point in competing with amk but it is what it is

    I took photos to show a while back with crosshairs, since I have the same stands they used in the pictures. Here's a better comparison.
    The first picture showed the stand being bended on the same shape as they did in the display case.
    The C-clip grip near the chest of Mirage, while mirage's not on the base of the stand, so I presume he would be on the height of Voyager Prime here.
    The C-clip grip the waist of Primal, so that's about the size of Space Venom from Marvel Legends, which is ~ 7 inch?
    And lastly, Prime, since they have to bend the stand upward to support his height, I presume probably fall somewhere between Actrocitus of Mcfarlane and Space Venom.

    Why do they always display 2 mini BBM Optimus Primes? Aren't the 2 identical?

    And no way they are smaller than AMK

    Are there prices on the cards in front of them? I can\'t tell. Just wondering how much these will cost. Hoping for something similar to the DMK style model kit though.

    They still haven't delivered the larger kits they announced in 2019, why promise more stuff they will never make?

    Just posting those here because they were in the other thread 11-Trumpeter-Rise-Of-The-Beasts-Optimus-Prime-Bumblebee.jpg 14-Trumpeter-Rise-Of-The-Beasts-Optimus-Prime-Bumblebee.jpg 13-Trumpeter-Rise-Of-The-Beasts-Optimus-Prime-Bumblebee.jpg 12-Trumpeter-Rise-Of-The-Beasts-Optimus-Prime-Bumblebee.jpg 23-Trumpeter-Rise-Of-The-Beasts-Optimus-Prime.jpg 24-Trumpeter-Rise-Of-The-Beasts-Optimus-Prime.jpg 25-Trumpeter-Rise-Of-The-Beasts-Optimus-Prime.jpg 26-Trumpeter-Rise-Of-The-Beasts-Optimus-Prime.jpg 27-Trumpeter-Rise-Of-The-Beasts-Optimus-Prime.jpg
    Why does Optimus have the wrong energon swords? Are they just placeholders? Because they were still the same in the latest images of the prototype

    Fingers crossed they (or someone else) do a good Arcee kit. Her design in ROTB was fantastic!

    Hopefully the swords get fixed, because so far, these kits are looking like a worthy pick-up!
