    I definitely prefer Zeta's over BMB due to the better jet mode, but both look pretty solid. Looking forward to better pics as they get closer to release.

    It’s difficult to really ascertain if it looks good enough to compete with things like the ThreeZero ‘wing while unpainted for me. The sculpt looks good, and that has to be one of the cleanest jet undercarriages in a MP-scale figure of a transformer I’ve ever seen, but time will tell off the paint and price can deter from the official.

    Man, the proportions are just tragic, because the detail and colour separation are really impressive. So much accomplished by different coloured plastics, as it should be, but the Phantom mode is cartoonish, and the robot mode is just not good at all. The torso is huge, conical, it's so close yet just too off.

    This needed another draft or two.

    It looks like a phantom... this looks about as cartoonish as the MP seekers from the 2010’s, as in it isn’t.

    Looks great, but when is a 3P going to tackle BB movie Soundwave? I'm fine with people who want Prime and BB to get their fill, but I'd rather have a Soundwave that isn't a $300+ non-transformable collectible display only piece.

    They should shrink it to scale with studio series.

    To go from 3a/oversized down to SS would probably require a lot more than just shrinking everything down that they couldn't be bothered to do at this stage. Like imagine how fun Freedom Leader's transformation would be if it was shrunk to SS size with no changes.

    Just guessing, but since Soundwave, though is a favorite, had no shown or known alt mode, nobody wanted to bother? They could make him a big communication console which would be logical, or maybe go the IDW route and who knows. .some vehicle with a canon. I will take a new remake of Sonicron for all the "makers" out there. Nope, not embarassed at all, Sonicron was awesome in all his QC ridden production.

    IIRC Lemon Tree is doing a Bee movie Soundwave. It's not MP scale, but it is an option.

    Really nice F-4 mode.

    Zeta's F-4 mode is much better than BmB's.

    Good to know,and yeah it’s crazy how both versions share similar transformations. For sure going to wait for Zeta Blitzwing that BmB video review the quality was all over the place.

    The Jet mode is kinda GI Joe-ish. The Cockpit is a bit bigger then it should be, but it still looks ok.

    Edit:
    Actually its just kinda shorter all around. A slightly stubby F-4.

    Too many to list. BMB's is a lot like a "license-avoiding" version of the F-4. Every little detail, is "fictionalized"---the missiles, the slats, the drop tanks, etc. All "close, but wrong". And then the overall proportions are worse----cockpit too big, tail too small, etc.

    It looks too tall and lanky to me. They did the same thing with their bee which I didn\'t like. Blitzwing looks great but that lankyness just like bee still throws off some screen accuracy.
