3A is working their magic once again on the Transformers movie franchies, this time giving us our first look at Blitzwing from the Bumblebee Movie. Thanks to Seibertron's Nathaniel Prime we're treated to a preview of Blitzing on 3A's Facebook page. As expected the figure looks like it was lifted right out of the movie. The non-transforming figure features 51 points of articulation and stands at 10.6 inches tall placing it in scale with the previous Bumblebee figure.

Wondering how they can make this design transform in Studio Series... :-? That chest looks like it has to flip inwards to fill in the chest, and the nose cone rotating inward. And those wings... they look like they need to twist the whole assembly like with POTP Starscream. Hopefully HasTak can make it happen, with no faux parts of course. :POPCORN:

Meant to write cockpit, not chest. Again, really hope they don't cheat with the chest, even if it looks like they might

What’s more amazing is that you can literally go to any page on the baord about Blitzwing and someone has said that like a 100 times in the past 9 months :roll:

The selective criticism in the transformers fandom continues to astound me. The last 4 movies get nitpicked to their very core. But this movie, containing two triple changers, fails to make blitzwing a triple changer and no ones says boo. I am starting to think half the people here don’t even watch transformers, just come here to complain.

Of the three new Decepticons in this movie, why is the one with the least screen time and least interesting death getting one of these?

To be fair, Hasbro considers him a triplechanger and he hardly spent much time in jet mode in the movie.

Be nice if we get a studio series blitzwing, seems like a blitzwing figure could work, finishing the decepticon trio in the movie

That Blitzwing is a thing of beauty. And seeing the movie model in plastic form really makes me appreciate how much effort went into him. He's almost entirely made of recognizable bits of F-4 Phantom, which after the AOE and TLK designs and their impossible transformations is nice to see. The landing gear toes are a really nice touch.

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
