    Personally think the wings might be a tad off, but other than that, looking dam good.

    Glad to see someone making him! Alt mode looks great; not sure about bot mode proportions. But promising!

    I agree with the wings looking off too. I think they need to be more angled or more noticeably separated at those lines that divide each wing into two

    Doesn’t look quite right. Arms are either weedy or the chest is packed.

    I think the issue for me is they didn't make the cockpit shrink, they just made a bit of the end disappear. If that part was smaller It would look spot on.

    Looks pretty good. I'll keep an eye on this but I doubt I'll be buying it - I'm just not that into characters that die two minutes after they show up.

    I just think the wings need to be bigger... don't think it'd hurt robot mode either. Wonder of a plane enthusiast can chime in on the vehicle mode looking right.

    I know the actual robot mode is a Frankenstein monster of various jets. So I can excuse certain details being absent. I think this is an F4 phantom from what I remember when I read into it when the movie was coming out. I think it’s pretty close tho, just need those wings to be angled more in both modes in my opinion. I think I’ll get it regardless if they fix that or not

    Looks bad, I bet $5 this is part of the Get back at Toyworld plan.

    Ah, so that's why Zeta's bot mode looks off. Chest is too big; shoulders are too small. Impressive that they seem to have done the cockpit transformation without cheating though.

    Is it too early to hope this is the beginning of the 3rd-party BB Blitzwing wars?

    Looks like there are few variations of the jet. You can see the wings having the same angled appearance but less of a pronounced overhang(?) on the above one

    I hope so, I loved blitzwing’s design in the movie. More so than drop kick and shatter tbh. I think toy world would do a great job with it actually, and their paint scheme they’ve been going for would work pretty well imo. A weathered jet mode would look dope

    If they color the cockpit the right clear it should be and angle those wing ends upwards a little more I’ll be satisfied

    Right. So it would’ve been wiser to base the figure off this?

    Yep, I liked Blitzwing's design a lot more than the triple-changers. Basically I just want a figure that looks like 3A's but can transform, haha... but we might need Unique Toys or ToyWorld for that.
