Taking an in-hand look at the recent Premium Scale release from ThreeZero for Transformers Bumblebee Optimus Prime. This is the larger size line, not to be confused with the also-awesome DLX scale figures which are smaller in scale and price. Premium are the big boys, meant to be centerpieces of your display. He faithfully represents Optimus’ look from the 2018 Bumblebee movie, in both his Cybertron and Earth modes due to interchangeable parts. Lights are present in the eyes and the blaster, plus he sports 140 (yes, 140) points of articulation. Every part is touched with high end paint and weathering, so he looks like he popped right off the screen and is sitting in front of you once in hand.
This is a review copy (thanks to ThreeZero for sending it through), so things may change a bit for final release. Optimus should be shipping soon, with expected delivery dates in Q3 2022 (though that can change). If you are still on the fence with him, some of our sponsors below still have him available to order.
