    I only just noticed that their Primal has that half-gorilla face as a swappable face-plate. :)

    Yeah it's a lovely touch. Movie accurate masked, control art and movie accurate monke faces. Delicious.

    I assume that it is Plastic Rod, at least from first sight.
    I think broken DieCast / broken Metal would look
    different.

    Depends how clean a break it was. There's loads of metal in the arm assembly, so do check, because I'm pretty convinced it's metal and my guess is a broken arm got put in the box and sailed through, the same way my headless Bumblebee left the factory

    Can not check, because only the broken spots
    are visible, nothing else.

    Yes the Figure was rushed. As said
    it was placed upside down in the Window Box.

    ThreeZero responded. Will get a New Arm
    after Chinese New Year.

    My estimate is, just like Dream Star Toys Silverbolt,
    that they not waited for the molding to cool down.
    They rushed the Process and wanted it to pack as fast as they could.

    I doubt that. There were reports of broken releases elsewhere for other releases, I think it's a design issue. My jetfire (delayed release in a different package style) had a snapped wing peg. I simply believe 3Z, for all their merits, aren't amazing at design in places.

    Ah, right. As in, the figure was placed inside the clamshell upside down? So the head was where the legs were supposed to be? Yeah, that would put sustained pressure where it wasn't supposed to be once sealed.

    I thought you just meant the inner package was put into the cardboard box upside down which isn't a big deal at all.

    Just watched the new Q&A on Instagram. Expect Age Of Extinction Lockdown in the third quarter of this year and Dark Of The Moon Shockwave the first or second quarter of 2025.

    Youtube mirror.



    Very, very pleasing news.

    Yes, the Plastic Bubble was placed upside Down.
    Head was, where the Legs should be.

    I think that Lockdown Release for 3rd Quarter of this
    Year is very much Impossible. They did not
    even show him yet. Even ROTB Primal had
    a whole Year between Reveal (August 2023) and
    Realease (August 2024). I think it is more likely
    1st Quarter 2025 for Shockwave and Lockdown.

    They also said we'd see a proper Scourge prototype by the end of 2023. It's almost march. But hey, let them take their time as long as the final product is the best they can deliver.

    Is that the Premium Gorilla Primal...? It seems a bit too small for Premium Screenshot_2024-02-15-16-00-28-892-edit_com.instagram.android.jpg

    Holy fuck they actually listened. At first glance it seems to be dlx scale if you compare it to mirage. Not gonna think twice about grabbing this one.

    Indeed a holy fuck moment. It's amazing how Threezero makes figures fast when they are from a recent movie. I can't wait to see what they'll do with him.
    The thing is, Lockdown and Shockwave will probably only be seen in 2025 at best. Damn, they were announced so long ago and we still haven't even seen a white prototype

    Looks to be a DLX scale. Really exciting to see. Hope Threezero officially announces it soon!

    Likelihood of Lockdown and Shockwave getting delayed yet again just went up…

    They said lockdown should be revealed by the end of the year and Shockwave early next year.
