This makes no sense.
I really don’t get the part about making any possible redecos of Starscream exclusive to those who bought all the previous figures. No sense there at all.
That alt-mode does have me interested in Starscream, but I’m really not interested in buying the whole line just for that alt-mode. Especially if they keep climbing in price.
What makes no sense?
You made up everything you wrote in that first sentence.
I didn’t “make up” anything. Every company that does a BAF does so because they feel they need to offer an incentive to sell the whole line. If they had faith that every figure in the line would sell well they wouldn’t be using a highly desireable character to entice people to buy every figure. Companies have been doing this for decades and there’s always at least one dud in each line.
My question is, if Starscream will be made into a BAF, why isn't his left hand seen in the Bulldog review video?
Those are early production samples sent to reviewers for early review. My understanding is that they didn't even come with package and instructions...
Yet this guy got a box and everything, but no starscream parts
Teaser from their Weibo page. Pictures of full figure will be released in 20-ish of April...
with them recently saying that their bb prime is getting its 1st prototype shown of the 30th, seems like they've made it a month of revealing their projects
Wasn't this supposed to come out last month? What's the holdup? I'm going to assume its because Biplane Starscream isn't ready yet. Sigh, this build a figure bullshit is the one thing I'm not fond of. That being said, I intend to collect the whole line and then sell him and the two WWII bots (only doing one toy per character due to limited shelf space), so I suppose it's not a bad deal for me. I'll essentially get one of the figures I actually want for free, since I can sell Starscream for the same amount as the others.
I'd like to at least see Bulldog released and a painted picture of Bee before the end of the month.
A couple more review videos from a Chinese reviewer:
what's that female prime in the background? ;p
Those are nice color pictures of the spider, but when can we see some of the bee?
That Starscream looks fantastic.
From Toyworld Weibo page:
TW-FS03 二战大黄蜂上色样板公布，预计第三季度出货，TW-FS02 04 05会全力在下半年完成。
TW-FS03 WWII Bumblebee painted sample gallery, planned 3Q release, TW-FS02 04 05 will be completed in 2H 2019.
Now that is impressive.... the engineering and paint work on what is meant to scale with the ss line is crazy!! (kinda wish it wasn't SS scale... these designs as MP's would be amazing)
