    Await no longer, hopefully like me you're waking up to one too.

    My 'Bee mishap has been alerted to the relevant folks and my second copy should be en route soon enough anyway, so I won't be posing Prime next to a crime scene for long.

    I realize he doesn't look as awkward as he did in the movie partly because they reused the skeleton from BBM Prime.

    Why? I know everyone is different but to me I like this every bit as much as BBM Optimus.

    It's his lower half that doesn't sit right with me. They simplified the heck out of his legs. Only thing I like is his maskless face, sun visors and blades.

    Hmm..looking at that pic I really don't see any problems with the legs. To me they look a bit bulkier and stronger than BBM. But that's cool as Emgo would say: "you like what you like and you don't like what you don't". At least you get to put that money towards something else. Speaking of which, who is gonna be your next purchase?

    For me the only reason I’d want him is the accessories. I want that axe and swords, but I’m perfectly happy with BB prime so I can’t justify buying a $250 figure for 3 accessories.

    Makes me wish third party companies would take advantage of this situation and make an accessories kit for DLX BBM Prime.

    Mine seems to have been sitting in LA for a week now. Figured he would have shown up this past week, but seemingly no movement.

    When I initially saw this design the main issue I had was his mid torso. With pretty much no color it looks like he lost armor and never put it back on. So... kind of naked? But I got used to it and seeing him animated in the movie looked fine. But I know people seem to dislike his legs and with that I don't agree on. I like the blockier legs, and was never crazy about how... curvy(?) BB Prime's legs were even though I love that design to. Either way I'm a sucker and despite having BB Prime I still have the ROTB version on the way.

    I'm one of the people who don't like the legs on ROTB Prime and this comparison solidifies that. ROTB Prime's legs are extremely thick and blocky. I find that the BB movie design has a better balance of blocky and curves—which keeps the blocky G1 homage but makes his legs look more athletic. And the overall proportions are nicer on the BB model with the balanced size distribution across his chest, arms, and legs. The ROTB model is very leg-heavy.

    Agreed. There's just less interesting geometry in ROTB Prime's legs, and the thighs don't flow very smoothly from the hips in comparison to BBM's.

    I think making ROTB Prime's shins just flat planks takes away from the design.

    This goes for more than just Prime but I never like the shapely thighs of many of the BB movie designs. But for Prime I also don't prefer the "inhale" look he has right over his feet over say the first Bay Prime design and yes the ROTB Prime. Although I still don't know which I'd say is better since, again going against a lot of people here, I tend to think the BB Primes upper body is better.

    That being that, I still think ThreeZero's BB Prime is one of the greatest figures out there, and I think liking that so much is why I wanted to get the ROTB version as well.
