Judging by the writing on the packaging it looks like the mini-cons with Prime and Bumblebee have some sort of automorph into gun mode. I do hope Roller is miss-transformed because it looks like Prime won't be able to hold it up. I'm really pleased that both Springer and Blitzwing will have weapon storage.

I believe RobotKingdom just got them in stock, so I would suspect BBTS will get it in a couple weeks.

Thanks for the info. Theoretically speaking, if I were to get them from Robot Kingdom would I get them sooner than if I wait for BBTS to get them in stock and ship them out?

I wasn't very interested in Springer because I don't feel anything either way for the character and I don't like autobot cars very much but I'm pretty impressed with the mold itself. The colours have grown on me too and I kind of like them now.

Mostly, though, I now really badly want a Battletrap repaint of this guy. It'd be so good. Blue Bacchus would be my second choice. If I knew we'd never get those though I'd pick this up anyway.

Though it's not all that necessary in the first place, I'm glad to see that the face-changing gimmick looks a bit sturdier than the one on Animated Blitzwing, with his bothersome rubbery helmet.

What recent decision of Hasbro can't the above picture apply to?

I am happy to see Blitzwing has three faces! :)

Blitzwing isn't all he's cracked up to be, apparently.
This thread over at TFW shows a lot of flaws.

Of note, he has a rubber head, face and nosecone, plus his shoulders do not lock in place.

After reading/seeing that, I canceled my preorder. I don't have patience for that kind of mess.

I can get past the rubber faces and nosecone, the shoulders are going to be the problems for me. >:oP

It could be that the poster was unlucky enough to get the one unit to have issues with the shoulders.

I'll still get him for the sake of getting a Classics rendition of Blitzwing, but it is quite disappointing to know of these issues.

I hope you're right, but I just can't deal with that. (You've been Magnused.)

Maybe Blitzy isn't perfect, but it's a Classics-style Voyager class Triple-Changing Blitzwing in G1 colors, and a few flaws aren't going to ruin it (just as the flaws didn't ruin the G1 version).

And that's fine for you, it just isn't enough for me.

Well, it's fine with me. It's not perfect...but having to realign the shoulders isn't the worst thing I've dealt with.
