    Got an invoice from Terry
    It's 120 shipped in total. I think that's ok.

    This has been a long wait. I skipped every BB movie Bee so far because I knew some company would nail this design.
    I'm hoping TC next project is BB movie Prime.

    Ok, pictures have surfaced comparing MPM-7 and TransCraft in height and whatnot so I decided to retake the scale chart I made previously to see if it fits with the Zeta Blitzwing. Seems like it will?

    I overlapped 2 pictures, one comparing DLX Blitzwing with MPM-7 and vice versa just with TransCraft.

    This picture shows what it'd probably look like with DLX Blitzwing's legs entirely straight, as shown with MPM-7.

    upload_2021-1-19_13-31-43.png

    Now, using this as my initial reference, I decided to hop over to one of the reviews showing the Thunder Warrior version next to the DLX Blitzwing. When standing next to eachother they roughly match the exact same when it comes to height and crotch to head ratio.

    upload_2021-1-19_13-53-6.png

    In this picture I've drawn two lines. Using the first picture as a guide, I drew a blue line to indicate where TC would sit if both ThunderWarrior/DLX were to have their legs entirely straight. The red line is my personal guess as to where TC will actually end up being with their current more natural stance.

    upload_2021-1-19_14-15-4.png

    To conclude, I grabbed a screenshot from the actual movie. Bumblebee's feet are angled down in the screenshot, explaining why he's slightly out of frame. If I did everything right, he'll end up scaling almost perfectly with both the Zeta and Thunder Warrior version. Since Thunder Warrior is based on an older mold of the Zeta Blitzwing I doubt they'd change up the height from the initial prototype so they should see eye to eye :)

    haven't checked in on this for a while (that alt mode REALLY isn't for me) but man this thing looks AMAZING. congrats to those who are in on this. for those that want the best bot mode (that actually can transform), its definitely this guy. i really do think everyone gets a flavor of this character they want. TE for the bet alt mode and chubby/cute bot. Zeta for a nice big figure with a decent alt mode (arguably the best scale for some?) thats solid and nice.....and then this guy with the absolute best bot mode.

    Just took it out of the box and wow, he really does look and feels amazing. Best looking and transformable bee out there at the moment I would say. I'm still staring at it and amazed by how it looks.
    Joints are tight ,the paint and weathering effects are done nicely. The wheels are rubber. Doesn't feel like there will be any paint chipping at all. It feels light in-hand though, some have weigh it to be around 160+ grams over at Baidu.
    It's secured by a thick layer of foam within the box so you don't have to worry about breakage during shipping. Haha

    Also saw that.
    Optimus SS-32 it's like 310~ grams.
    I don't care about that, but i'm surprised he turned out to be light with all the complexity and part count.

    Even with all the diecast this one is lighter than an SS figure?

    Yeah, it doesn't seem right, probably a miscalculation(?.
