    TMT has a built-in blade and battle mask, And an individually articulated finger is a plus too. Tbh their BB Optimus is what I'm waiting for.

    They've sacrified neck for best crotch . Zeta has no neck at all.

    I just figured that BMB one has the entire cockpit section too low resulting which makes the head much more visible but is inaccurate. Zeta’s one with more flat windshield in front of head is best.

    One of the reasons I'm skipping TW at the moment. Watching the vids, it all just looks a bit too floppy. And I don't like some of the proportions.

    Agree, it's inaccurate. The bigger visibility of head is just personal preference

    I hate the fact that the only reason I want the BMB one is the wings and hands. Idk what it is, but those hands are a massive step up from zeta’s stiff looking hands that are tiny.

    I'm kinda on the same side, except it's the wings that bother me to no end. Sure, they might be more accurate to the F-4 alt-mode or whatever but why opt to go that route if they can't find the proper solution for bot mode, thus greatly sacrificing his silhouette?

    If BMB is really that frustrating to handle because of those wings sitting on tiny ball joints then I much prefer what Zeta did. I have enough of small ball joints after TW Prime lol

    I don’t know the details of ZT’s. It might suffer the same issue. After all, both are from the same original design.

    But by looking at it the wing area is designed differently.

    I'm willing to think that BMB just decided to slap a ball joint connection there cause "It'll look better duh" but haven't tested it and as a result the wings tend to be floppy. Anyway, I'm not paying for either of them until we know more about Zeta as well :)

    Is there any side view of the chest on this figure? I don't really like Thunder Warrior chest because it's too hollow. I hope this figure has a more solid-looking chest.

    Yeah those two features are my favorite parts I prefer over Zeta’s. Zeta’s main body is way better, even the entire leg. BMB’s legs look lanky compared to Zeta.

    TWO HUNDRED DOLLARS AT TFSOURCE!?! Jesus, I know US-based companies typically charge more, but a nearly 25% increase?

    Never buy from TFsource. They bully 3p companies into forcing overseas retailers to match them. They always screw over people this way.

    Looks good. Just a shame they aren’t changing anything with the paint. That cockpit still has a section of the cockpit covered in paint when it’s supposed to be clear. Also tiny hands still look tiny. Btw, did they make his mouth articulated? It looks weird, why give the gas mask a wonky mouth? It's getting harder and harder to decide which one I like more overall..... If someone sold me BMB's hand's I would probably just stick to zeta.

    Also comparison between zeta and BMB.

    Damn the wings are so much more better on BMB. It’s a shame both look so close to perfection yet falls short in several areas like this.

    I hope someone on We chat asks Zeta if they can/plan on making changes for the 2nd batch. They made the hammers Bee had 15% bigger so maybe they can do the same with his hands and fix the color problems.
