B-127, I pray this message finds you. Our war rages on. Planet Earth… Survival… ThreeZero’s DLX Optimus Prime has arrived on Earth and made it’s way to TFW2005 HQ! The third deluxe scale figure, which is a scaled down version of ThreeZero’s larger Premium scale figures, is Optimus Prime from the Bumblebee movie. This model is a change from the previous movie looks and pulls a lot of inspiration from G1 aesthetics. It comes in at 15 inches tall, has 55 points of articulation, a die-cast skeleton, LED light up eyes, and a stand. Paint and detailing are top notch head to toe. Movie accurate is definitely an appropriate term here. As with all the ThreeZero figs before this (formerly released under the 3A banner), it does not transform. These are bot mode only action figures.
We’ve got an early copy thanks to ThreeZero, read on to check out some additional thoughts and over 70 HD images! We’ve also attached some key shots to this story. He should be shipping soon! You can check our sponsors to see if there are any copies available left to pre-order.
Another great addition to the line up. ThreeA/Zero have been steadily getting better with execution, and Prime continues that trend. All articulation points are solid, firm, hold poses. Nothing snapped or broke off during handling. Posing was a breeze. Only slight ding is that the hands are very tight, so getting them on and off require some effort. Paint and weathering are top notch as usual. The DLX line overall including Prime here tone down the weathering from earlier Premium scale releases, and it lets the awesome models from the movie shine. I really dig this scale, and the combo of Prime/Bumblebee is a perfect representation of the movie on the shelf. Do I still want a Premium scale Bumblebee movie Prime, yes :). This version however can be quickly and easily messed with, pulled, re-posed, replaced to shelf without it being an event, and to me that’s a plus.
Bottom line, epic piece, totally worth the cost if you don’t mind that he doesn’t transform.
