    I think it won’t be difficult to swap hands and stuff but it will be very hard to obtain the parts. Im sticking with Zeta for now after that wing update. But BMB head and hand look superior. Wish Zeta eliminated that weird line in the mask.

    As strange as it sounds, seeing the figure in pictures and videos actually doesn't do the real deal justice. When I was watching all the videos and looking at all the pictures of Fire Scorpion Optimus Prime, the head was my least favorite. When I got it in my hands in person, the first thing I noticed was how different the head looks in person. I really liked the way it looked. It was my very first impression of it, so I never forgot that feeling.

    That said, I can't promise this will turn out the same way for you, but it's worth considering.

    Many figures look better in hands. In pictures Lemon Tree prime is too skinny and head isn’t best. But in reality that figure is just deluxe size and all the problems are gone in hand. Legs also don’t look skinny in real life. Hope it’s same with this figure’s detailings.


    Anyways I’m impressed by the jet mode. Blitzwing is F-4b in the movie and this figure is quite accurate to real jet

    I'm conflicted. From the jet perspective, I like the deco/markings of the BMB version, but Zeta's just looks better proportion-wise, especially with the bigger horizontal stabilizers. Maybe I'll get both to physically compare, then sell the other?

    Optic illusion ( or delusion to believe that it looks better )

    Zeta’s jet looks much better but the markings are better on BMB in some places. It says USAF on BMB but in Zeta it says UFOAF

    It could mean Unidentified Flying Object Air Force.

    Are the two figures definitely the same scale for people to be able to swap parts between the two? ShowZ lists the BMB as 27cm and the Zeta as 30cm

    The jet mode looks so good. The double opening cockpit is a really fun-looking feature too! I think alt mode features are underrated. Even just an opening door or something is so cool. I love how Challenger can open his doors in alt mode. They didn't have to do that!

    The jet is really good and I was not expecting jet to be this accurate. I’m happy with the modification of bot mode wings to be accurate. Hope there’ll be pictures of the new model soon :D

    I think they're the same size.
    Looking back at their previous prototype, their Bee (20.5 cm) is taller than 2/3 of this Blitzwing. So it's probably about 27-28cm.

    Another thing is that Zeta also tried the foldable wing tips, not sure why they changed it, but it's nice that they are bringing it back to their final design.

    I've been catching up on the discussion regarding Zeta vs. BMB. I pulled the trigger on the BMB. I think the battle worn paint job will pair nicely with my Zeta bb and wj Optimus that had battle damage anyways.

    Honestly, the fact that it's such a tough decision between the two, kinda shows that both look really great. For me personally, while I do want screen accurate, it's far less important for me with these movie bots than say my G1 Masterpiece. I've had my whole life as a kid and growing up to form my opinion of what a G1 Optimus should look like.

    The Bayverse/BB movie stuff is all a motion blur to me, so as long as it looks like a cool bot and reasonably resembles the movie, I'm down with it.

    Who knows which will ultimately be the better figure..
    the only thing I know for sure is that @octobotimus is obsessed with the size of the figures hands since he has mentioned it in just about every one of his posts in both threads.

    Screen accuracy, Zeta wins hands down.. well except for wing and hands

    BMB’s just look off to me especially the torso and the jet mode. It looked good but after seeing Zeta, I am now seeing more problems in BMB than I see in Zeta.

    Looking at the coloured prototype, I'm having the feeling that Zeta will looks better than SX. But since SX is coming out with Soundwave soon, and the advantages of this is greater that ZT vs SX Blitzwing, I'm going with SX

    Yeah hands are expressive and important. But I guess someone likes tiny hands

    Yes, cheifly porn recruitment agencies! I'm sorry

    Ah, I wasn't going to get this one as I'm really starting to run out of space in my Moviebots cupboard! But I've just been granted a shelf for expansion at home and the incremenetal improvements to Zeta I can't ignore. He looks awesome, my own caveat potential deal-breaker being the wobbly wings at the back, if it has those I may reconsider but right now I'm hyped!

    It's a tough decision because there is not a review for Zeta!! Sx have a complex transformation and it's BMB (poor quality a bad QC). WE ALL NEED A ZETA REVIEW!!:eek: :eek: :eek:

    Ive decided to just wait for regular scale. Dont know why I'd go with an OS scale thats too OS'ed from even the OS.

    I only hope this one is out when he's ready and Zeta won't try to rush things
