    Bah. Could be sooo much more. I’ll stick to the bumblebee movie dlx series.

    if I’m paying premium prices, I want a premium design. Too much of an OSKO look to it. For those that love it, I’m glad! Better to have the options and pass than to not have any options at all.

    What's up with all you complainers? NO one is making you buy this. Stop being a whiner. This is not for you. The world of collecting does not revolve around what you want. If you are happy with the toy good, go post about it in the toy thread.

    This is for collectors who want an extremely show accurate highly detailed highly poseable figure that sits in MP scale. Think of this more like a statue you can pose. There are $1000+ statues out there (Prime1 Studios) that don't Transform. Guess what people buy those. No matter how many of you guys say, "mehhhhh,,,,mehhhh....These won't sell, grumble grumble," won't stop them from selling. The other ThreeZero/3A figures have been selling just fine for years. So are the Flame Toys figures and those cost a lot more. You enjoy your thing, let other people enjoy theirs.

    I’m sorry for posting my opinion on a discussion board. I will try to consider your feelings, and the feelings of people who agree with you, next time before I do such a thing again. I am also sorry that my opinion caused you such distress, and caused you to think that I was saying nobody should buy this. I hope you’re able to salvage the rest of your day.

    And I’m sorry for thinking that a high end $200 figure that literally looks like a $30 transforming figure, right down to the tiny wheels on the calves, is kinda crazy.

    Trying really hard to make his dumb sword-gun weapon look not dumb lol

    It’s too bad the WFC show and IDW 2.0 are straight up using the toy models as opposed to say the Siege box art designs.

    All the other stuff they did was not based on a toy/show, it was based on movie characters that don't look like the toy at all, and are very very well detailed, but these look exactly like a 30$ toy with all the kibble. Yeah, people do want them and the Megatron looks okay. The movie figures are screen accurate, without kibble. So I think there is legit confusion as to the point of these. The Flame Toys stuff isn't based on toys either, It's IDW, designs (for the most part). It doesn't differentiate itself enough for me to purchase one, when I can get a 30$ version of the same thing, with all the kibble and it transforms. That being said, I am gonna get the R.E.D. stuff and they don't have kibble.

    I’m not too concerned about what these are based on, they are a separate entity for me. It is based on a $30 transforming toy, yes, but they aren’t the same thing. Voyager class BB Prime isn’t the DLX one, although they are the same design.

    These WFC figures are the same design, with infinitely superior articulation, paint, diecast, and lights. They in no way look like a $30 toy, and they certainly won’t feel like a $30 toy, when they get picked up.

    Except those movie BB designs aren’t using the SS figures and copying them even down to the seems. These are literally the voyager figures just blown up and a bit better at posing (not infinitely better since the originals already pose well). They may be painted well, but they by nature are made to look like the cheap $30 toys just with fancy paint.

    Megatron doesn't even have treads, he's a hover tank. He shouldn't even touch the ground in alt mode!

    What's up with you complainers? It's a discussion board, you don't get to choose who says what.

    Come on, Octobotimus. Stop whining and complaining. Didn’t you know that this is a discussion board? The last thing you should be doing is posting your opinion.

    Thank you, I accept your apology. I am also allowed to have an opinion, and I think bringing unnecessary negativity to thread for a figure you don't plan to buy is just bad form. If you have a problem with how this figure looks, take it up with Has-Tak. Has-Tak designed this version of Optimus Prime. This is how he will look in the series. ThreeZero is just following the source material. Again, no one is forcing you to buy this, so why complain? There is no point in complaining about something you have no interest in. Others have shown interest. Don't rain on their parade.

    New Trailer - oh look the kibble and stuff is there. This figure is source accurate. Again, if you don't like it don't buy it. If you don't like the kibble or aesthetic complain to Hasbo-Takara, or be cool, and save the negativity. It's not needed.

    Who thought it was a good idea to have New IDW and Netflix to use the exact toy models???
    Why not go for cleaner designs inspired by the toys like the box art for Seige and Earthrise

    It looks so silly especially Chromia and inevitably Arcee in Earth Rise..

    this is an interesting rabbit hole they're going down...

    how many more characters would they expect to do in this line? Are any/all of the show characters up for grabs? Do they switch over and make Earthrise versions (and Kingdom versions) in a year or so?

    Damn. You thought that was a real apology. I’ll have to use blue text next time. I’m not going to apologise for posting my opinion on discussion board. Again, if a high end $200 figure that looks like a $30 figure that can easily be bought on Hasbro Pulse interests you, then more power to you. I’m not telling you to not buy it. You are free to spend your hard earned money any way you wish. I wasn’t aware my opinion was stopping you from whipping your credit card out and buying this.

    It’s absolutely ironic that members of a website comprised of discussion boards get all caught up in their feels when people, total random internet strangers, spot opinions they don’t like.

    I was too, I think I’ve come to acceptance and even excitement.

    Hopefully, these and the two Sideshow exclusive repaints can fund Shatter and Dropkick (and Shockwave, and Ironhide, and some Bayverse stuff, and.....).
