3A has launched their Bumblebee movie Blitzwing gallery and, wow, does this figure look good!? As expected from 3A this non-transforming figure looks just like it walked straight out of the movie with loads of details, articulation, metal parts and LED lights to really bring it to life. We're also getting our first look at his accessories which include weapons, a replaceable arm, and extra sets of hands.

The figure can be pre-ordered right now at the link above for $199 which does include shipping. Considering his size of 10.6 inches and list of features that's really not a terrible price for a figure like this. The full list of bullet points can be found below along with the full gallery. He's expected to see release sometime in the third quarter of 2019. Thanks to Nathaniel Prime for bringing this to our attention!

I hate those damn wings. Stupid G1 seeker tribute. Fold them away so they don't get all damaged in battle and make your jet mode unusable.

Y'know, now that I have a full body shot of him, I really don't see Starscream But With A Different Name. I mean, he doesn't terribly look like Blitzwing either, but there are enough details that the design doesn't really scream Starscream (pun very much intended) to me. Maybe my brain has just been subconsciously trained to identify him as a different character... #-o

Where would you rather have them be placed? I agree with you on the (un)practical design choice, but I believe they would still get damaged regardless of where they are placed.

Back to the figure, love it, love everything about the design, hopefully SS Blitzwing will be revealed in China on the 26th :DANCE:

He's already in a Starscream paint scheme what about G1/Animated Blitzwing colours ;)

I do like this but I really do wonder why they bother 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.

Well hey, at least Onslaught gets something that way. And he makes for an imposing statue if nothing else.

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.

The images appeared on 4Evers Facebook page and show Prime next to 3As action figures of Bumblebee and Blitzwing (from the same movie).

It looks really good,but he looks more a like a semi articulated toy,than a statue.
Its too expensive for me right now,but I'm happy for those who can afford it.

That's cuz he is a fully-articulated figure; the article is mislabeled. 3A makes articulated figures, not statues.

Isn't this an action figure though and not a statue?

Also not a bash on the figure at all, but personally I prefer the look of the Studio Series one. Looks more uniform and how I remember him looking in the movie. This one looks a lot busier and the head looks a lot thinner than I remember. I assume this is more based on earlier concept art?

Someone actually did some side-by-side comparisons of it with the final movie model, and it's mostly pretty much spot-on, although the head does look thinner (wondering if that's just the angle/aperture warping it or not).
