    Threezero posted a video on their YouTube giving an update on the status of ROTB figures with their CEO, Ken Kwok. I listed out the Q&A below as well.



    Q: The 7th Transformer movie is releasing soon, are there any updates from Threezero?
    • We have been a bit slow lately but we do have 3 DLX figures prepared at the moment. We aim to announce Bumblebee in June, Optimus in mid-late June and Optimus Primal in July.

    Q: There has been a few DLX figures by now, what are the main selling points for the new figures?
    • Bumblebee will have duel LED lights in his eyes (blue + red), including both of his ion blasters for each hand and LEDs in the blasters as well. Optimus will have a more silver effect to his body, a big arm ion blaster which will also have LED light up features. We have also added more features to the Optimus Primal figure, stay tuned.

    Q: Will these 3 characters be the only ones done from ROTB?
    • No. There are a lot of new characters in the movie and our plans at the moment are to also do a DLX Mirage and Scourge. These two are in the early stages but they are in the works.

    Q: Will there there be anything for the other lines besides DLX?
    • A lot of fans have asked for more Premium figures and we are currently working on a Premium Scale Optimus Primal. Premium figures take a lot more time to produce and are not figures that can be made overnight. We plan to take preorders for Premium Optimus Primal around September - October.

    DLX Optimus Primal prototype on his desk as well:

    Nice to hear there’s more planned. Always liked the look of the figures, but it’s hard to budget those in for me. Might make an exception for a Scourge or Mirage though.

    Bee and scourge if they ever do him are what I’d get. Don’t need another Optimus and don’t care enough for primal to get a DLX.

    Bumblebee releasing in June?? No way, surely that's a mistranslation. Official aouncement is more likely.

    Definitely announcement. Also unfortunately means this 100% delays Lockdown and Shockwave into 2024.

    Dammit. :(

    I'm sure these will look great, but I really wish they did movie characters in the more affordable MDLX scale

    I imagine they don't want to compete with Studio Series.

    I wish that Primal was in his mode because we already have a model kit coming and also, he stays in Beast mode till the final battle.

    I was looking at a conversation with some people with the company, Shockwave is on the back burner due to the new movie, that's the main focus currently.

    Given the speed threezero works at, if we still see him within the next year and a half that's not bad at all. As long as he's still coming, I'm content.

    Man the DLX line is great. Definitely tempted by Primal, but having BB Prime I don't think I will need this Prime.
