Via Trumpeter Weibo we can share for you new promotional images of the upcoming Bumblebee Movie Blitzwing Model Kit By Trumpeter.
This officially licensed easy-to-build model kit was recently revealed in the Shizuoka Hobby Show in Japan. This kit comes pre-painted and brings you a nice level of detail and poseability. The new HQ images show the finished Blitzwing model and his poseability, interaction with his base and the way the aforementioned base can link to the one included with Trumpeter Bumblebee model kit. Price and release date are yet to be announced, but stay tuned with TFW2005 for more updates.
See the mirrored images after the jump and then sound off on the 2005 Board!
No clue. Not an expert on painting but if you can't strip the paint, can you either sand it off or prime over it
Nope, look at the very first post. There’s a larger scale Bumblebee in the works, with Optimus and Blitzwing proposed but unlikely given how long it’s been.
Larger one ?
I thought Trumpeter only did smaller ones
Does anyone know a solvent that will remove the factory paint without attacking the underlying plastic? I tried to use isopropyl alcohol to strip the factory paint, but that did not work. Nothing happened, no reaction at all. Then I tried Satellite city CRK-H-SS Super Solvent, which has never attacked plastic before, and it totally ate up the Ravage cassette. Luckily I was able to save the backside. Has anyone successfully removed the factory paint and done a repaint of your own?
I'm actually excited for this because I've long wanted to repaint that design, give it a new head, and make it more "Hot Rod-y," but the SS figure is too complex that it probably wouldn't be doable given it transforms. The model, however, wouldn't have that problem.
It seems Hot Rod is comming…
Of course it's bumblebee again I kind of wanted wheeljack or someone from the bee movie cast
But ThreeZero released that two years ago!
Really wish that larger scale BBM Bee would come out already.
There we go!!!
Aren\'t they gonna reveal the next model kit?
It\'s been 2 months since the last one
From the soundwave box in the back it has starscream it could be next and they can do the rest or starscream could be their last one if it's the second option then it's sad to heat I really wanted that wheeljack
not that i know of
I mean, they're a fraction of the size and price of Yolopark, and I'd say these are better designed than TT's models. Is TT even still doing Transformers models?
They're great because they're a good size and not too expensive. Yolopark charges far too much
These just aren't very good compared to Yolopark or Takara Tomy.
yeah now that we got most of the designs in studio series, i've kinda lost any interest in a lot of the models except that larger bee
I'm just annoyed that we still haven't seen hide nor hair of that larger scale Bumblebee with the more intricate engineering. I'm not sure why these things take years to materialize.
Any updates on who is next in the line
