I do like this but I really do wonder why they both putting a lot of effort into a character that lasted about 10 seconds on screen (yes i'm being facetious)

another reason why i hate character deaths in general

Probably because they get the designs well in advance of seeing the movies so they just pick characters to make based on how cool they look, only to find out their entire screen presence in the movie can be spliced together from TV spots. Prime1 is also making a statue of him so someone on the movie's marketing team did a great job of selling companies on Blitzwing as a good choice for a high end collectible.

Yeah true that is the way it works.

It's just such a shame the design wasn't used throughout the movie. :-(

Lest we forget that Onslaught statue from TLK. One of only 2 cons that had a statue lined up from TLK, and it was that guy. Not Nitro Zeus, not Barricade, Onslaught.

Pretty sure it was cancelled though, after how disappointing he was and the film was in general. All we ever saw I think were mockups but no statue itself, and definitely no pre-orders.
