    Ok. I don't see the faults that you see with ROTB Prime. I like his bulkier legs, they make him look stronger. But that's ok, we're all different. Are you still going to pick him up or are you going to give him a miss?

    The difference between ROTB primes thighs and BB prime’s is functionality. One design thought of the thighs as not only being metal, but also as muscles for this living being. So they shaped them like muscles. ROTB prime feels like they just connect like a robot or Mech does and then made awkwardly massive in 1 direction.

    Nah, I'm not going to pick him up since I prefer the BB model and I do already have DLX BB Movie Prime.

    I did not take the BB DLX (got the premium) so, I decided to get this one to pair with Primal against Scourge and that will bee all for a movie I don't like that much (5/10).

    However, some characters have cool design and I have come to get used to the ROTB OP's design in time despite the bulcky aspect: it is a nice mix beetween Bayverse Prime and G1 Prime.

    I think threezero did an incredible job with this figure, at first I felt that the head was strange, but it is almost identical to Prime's head in the movie, the only different detail I find is in the waist area with the lower belly In the movie the lower belly is tucked almost below the waist, I imagine that Threezero had to sacrifice aesthetics for mobility or they saved money on modifying the metal skeleton of the figure , I attach reference images

    Received mine...broken. Arm was already broken
    in Package. Dream Star Toys Silverbolt Flashback all over again.
    Man, what a great Quality.

    I thought the ENTIRE Internal Skeleton is made of DieCast?
    What kind of bullshit is this.

    Reported the Damage to ShowZ.
    Hope I get my Brand New Arm from them.

    I have the Feeling, that Chinese Workers at
    Factories are not Focused on their Work.
    In Addition to the broken Arm, the entire Figure
    with Plastic Bubble was placed Upside Down in the
    Package. Opened the Window from Box, and
    Prime was Upside down, and I already heard the broken
    Arm climpering inside Package. Man what is going on in the Factories.

    I am also very shocked and sad, that the Bicep is
    only held by such a thin Plastic Rod.
    ThreeZero PROMISED AND CONFIRMED that the
    entire Internal Frame is made of DieCast.
    So I really would like to know, what the Hell
    they are thinking, with this false advertise.

    They won't. You'll need to go through threezero via the warranty sheet. At least, that's my experience here with my Bumblebee issues. They immediately bounced me back to threezero.

    What ever happened with that? Did ThreeZero send you new heads?

    Cheers for asking, dude. I'm gonna hit them up again after CNY. They're aware of the issue, had me contact Show Z who bounced me back to them. Got a feeling I'm gonna have a battle on my hands with it, hopefully not as all my dealings with threezero's aftercare have been top notch.

    @Sephiroth169 - is that rod break definitely plastic? The housing it's seated in on the lower arm (omega symbol shape) is absolutely metal and then flanked by the outer plastic sculpt. Close up, that broken rod really looks like sheared metal.

    1000044020.jpg

    I only ask because if it is a metal rod, it probably went in the box already broken as it would take some considerable force to do it. Which obviously isn't great at all and helps me understand how I wound up with a Bumblebee with no heads.

    I think there has been considerable pressure to get these out before CNY. I've never seen their Transformers output be so much over such a short space of time. Since September we've had DLX ROTF Megatron, reissues of BBM and TLK Optimus, Arcee, the Ultra Magnus repaint, ROTB Bumblebee and ROTB Optimus Prime. That's alongside the MDLX Transformers line as well as all their other properties.

    Creating such an increase in demand in production but not properly managing it at the factory level can see things go wrong.
