Nemesis Prime DLX Scale Collectible Figure (Limited Edition) By 3A/Threezero

No. This is not the heroic Autobot leader, Optimus Prime. He just has one of those faces.

Joining the lineup of the 3A/Threezero DLX Scale Collectible Figure Series comes a Limited Edition figure of the nefarious Nemesis Prime. Don't let this evil doppelganger slip through your fingers, limited quantities available through HasbroPulse.

Together with Threezero’s detailed paint applications, attention to detail, and high-quality production each DLX figure is a work of art.

Kinda weird how nobody has talked about this awesome thing because they all scrambled to Siege (I'll admit, I'm one of them)

Looks really badass, and I kinda want a Selects BB Voyager Optimus Prime as well.

Thanks to PrimeVsPrime on YouTube we have a review of the new ThreeZero/Three A deluxe Bumblebee movie Optimus Prime fully poseable non-transforming action figure. This thing is truly a work of toy art and appears to capture every subtle detail and nuance to what many have considered one of, if not thee best movie Optimus Prime designs seen so far. Whether you're a huge fan of the design or not, whether you're going to be buying this piece or not, PrimeVsPrime gives an excellent run down of the articulation, the stand, the blaster, every bit and piece you like to see in a review of one of these higher end items. Enjoy the view and share your thoughts in the forum. As always stay tuned to Seibertron for the ultimate in Transformers news!

Soundwave up for preorder in UK. Stands taller than Blitzscream too which is surprising. Something about the blockiness that detracts from the design rather than adding to it and the shoulder gun looks a bit off.

Thanks to the ThreeZero Twitter page, we have a tease for their next upcoming premium collectors figure: Bumblebee movie Optimus Prime!

The Bumblebee movie Optimus Prime design has caused quite a stir since it debuted in the Bumblebee film back in 2018, and we have had the pleasure of getting both a transforming Studio Series toy and a prior Deluxe ThreeZero figure of this design. This new take by ThreeZero is a larger and even more premium version of their original deluxe Optimus Prime, featuring a diecast metal frame, over 140 points of articulation, and it stands an impressive 19 inches tall (so on par with Combiner Wars Devastator in terms of height, and certainly it will be heavier).

While we only have the 1 teaser picture provided by ThreeZero, we will certainly see more images and get more information soon.

Check out the teaser below, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!

Fellow Seibertronian PrimeVsPrime sent us a nice e-mail letting us know of their latest review for the ThreeZero Transformers Bumblebee – Bumblebee Premium Scale figure. This is a fully articulated non transforming figure of Bumblebee as he appears in the Bumblebee movie when his alt mode is a Beetle.

Hey Seibertron!
I hope you are well,
I just thought i'd let you know that I uploaded a review for Threezeros latest Premium Scale figure, that being Bumblebee. In the review I also show a comparison between this premium scale figure to the DLX version and thought it may be of interest to you https://youtu.be/MmGmFwCk97o
Kind regards & keep safe!

Thanks to ThreeZero themselves on their store, we have a full reveal for the newest addition to their Transformers Premium Series figures: Bumblebee movie Optimus Prime!

As you might recall, we have news that they were preparing to do the full reveal, and the full figure itself does not disappoint. This impressive action figure stands 19 inches tall, the same height as Combiner Wars Devastator pretty much, and features a mind boggling 140 points of articulation. He also features insane detailing like we have come to expect from our live action heroes, as well as some LED light up effects.

He is expected to hit stores next June in 2021, and is retailing for around $500 USD. Check out some images of the impressive beast below, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!

Do you like your Transformers Siege Optimus Prime? But do you sometimes with it didn't transform? Well, Threezero has just the thing for you. Introducing new DLX Siege Optimus Prime. It looks just like Siege Optimus, kibble and all, and with awesome poseability and an amazing deco. But of course, does not transform. This toy was revealed by Threezero themsevles and it should be up for preorder on their web site July 24th. The price should be around the $200 mark as that is the price of their previous DLX Optimus Prime releases.

This reveal makes no sense. It's a highly posable action figure of the siege cartoon figure, who is itself based on the CAD of the siege toy. so basically, a non-transforming Siege Prime with an ab crunch and interchangeable hands.

You got it right though, this is based on the character we see in the media, as they did with their other Optimus Primes, all based on how they appear onscreen down to the very detail. It just so happens that this time around, the media was based directly on a toy.

So yeah, it becomes beyond redundant, but at least we can get the pattern they are going for in their releases.

As I wrote above, they maybe don't even know a transforming figure is out there. To them they are taking the design of an onscreen character model.

For all the people complaining about this Siege Prime, it wasn't made for you. This was made for the same people that buy $400 action figures regularly, people that don't care about alt modes, people that don't "play" with their toys, people that just want a cool looking figure for their $5,000 shelving wall. If you bought the original Voyager figure then you're probably not that person.

I'd rather it look like it's certainly worth the money (like the 3A DOTM Optimus or the Bumblebee movie version) than have a figure that's basically the same but bigger, has the transformation pieces glued shut, has some added details, and adds a few more points of articulation here and there.

Well this is disappointing.

They really hit Bumblebee Movie characters out of the park - DLX Bumblebee, Blitzwing, and Optimus are all fantastic. I'm sure this will be very nice, but still...

Branching out to other corners of the Transformers universe feels like a waste of effort when Dropkick and Shatter desperately need some love in the DLX line to round out the Bumblebee cast.

Another oversized Voyager Class figure that doesn't transform but does have a removable backpack for when Megatron's back from school. Does that thing have any school supplies or spray cans? I wonder if ThreeZero Ultra Magnus will come with a carrying bag for his cloak, or if Starscream will come with the ability to take his wings off and hold them like oversized paper fans.

I don't understand the point of these? A non-transforming figure that looks EXACTlY like their transforming Siege figure. Megatron even has the fake rolling wheels on his legs. Usually isn't it the other way around? A transforming robot making exceptions to fictional characters design on the page or screen. Just an odd choice all around from the Netflix show to these figures. I have enjoyed the entire Siege line but I don't want to see toys recreated as the same toys on screen. This is where you use your imagination to transform and give life to the figures etc., that's why 80's toys were and are still are adored by many fans!!

When I first heard the rumors that these two were coming, I was beyond happy. But after seeing Jetfire, I think I will be passing on the duo sadly. What really ruins the look for me is that the head/hat is just wrong (see pic from earlier post). I know that it is a small bit of the figure, but it is on the main part of the figure and I just can not get over that. If they happen to change that, I will definitely reconsider getting them. Other than the head, they do look glorious together.

I might’ve considered this bad boy, and nothing about the noggin bothers me, but THOSE legs are definitely the deal breaker for me. Idk man, they are just SO big. It ruins his entire look. I personally don’t care about small creative liberties, but when half of the character is twice the size it should be I just can’t do it. Such a bummer.

It’s super cool, although has been mentioned it’s a little strange that the canopy is sitting farther back on his head than it should.

I like the use of color though with the orange wires and gold hidden throughout. It’ll be some nice reference for when I paint my SS Jetfire.

If ThreeZero does an 07/ROTF/DOTM Bumblebee in the DLX line I think I’ll seriously consider getting it.

Jetfire looks stunning, and they did it, the mad lads did it. They made him look good, and combine proper with Prime. And best of all, they finally, FINALLY acknowledged the extra chin beard that Prime got in that combination! That combined mode looks so good.

I did preorder the pair after seeing these pictures. It will look great with TLK Bee

A three figure price for a non-transforming toy trying very hard to resemble a fully transforming voyager... with no indication of whether it will have the correct :CON: symbol or the squinty bayverse one, never mind the lack of any explanation for him having a :CON: at all in the widely-disliked source material.

Who is this for?

For those who love big diecast action figures? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

In my own opinion, ThreeZero figures make more sense for characters that just cannot have a transforming toy that is 100% media accurate because magic don't exist. Like Bayverse bots or ultra-cartoon accurate ones.

In that regard, the WFC 3-0 figures are a bit baffling. It still make sense if you love the designs and want something truly "premium" instead of a "simple small plastic" toy.

There's a pretty large chunk of fans that don't transform their Transformers and just don't care if they can do it or not, they just want something super cool that'll look good on the shelf. I know at least one member of the Twincast Podcast is into them. They're also really popular in Asia where ThreeZero is located (HK) and it's very common to see expensive figures for various Japanese super robots that don't break down into their smaller components, that stuff is everywhere in Japan for $200+. This is the real collectors market, the stuff that only adults would ever buy and kids would never be allowed near. Masterpiece doesn't even begin to touch the price of the top tier stuff (like the recently announce $700 15" Voltron which does separate). They've been making these Transformers figures for a while now, they would have stopped if they weren't profitable. Besides, it's not like Hasbro would ever let a REAL third party make transforming figures.

I doubt the market is that big for this sculpt. I suspect they're so desperate for a sale, that they have recoloured it for any money they can get.

If there was a "Most Pointless TF Product Ever" award, this sculpt of this product would be it.

ThreeZero makes awesome stuff.

However the problem I have with this series is that the cartoon characters these are based on are slavishly based on the existing Siege toys. Because of that, paint aside these high quality/high price figures don't look that much better than the $30-40 toys that they are ultimately based on.

ThreeZero really shines when taking characters that are hard to render, like the Movieverse characters, and making extremely detailed and articulated action figures out of them. No Hasbro toy has ever really captured the look of a movie character because they are too detailed and weren't designed with transformation in mind. However the ThreeZero toys look like those movie characters stepped off the screen.

By comparison these WFC figures just look like they busted out of their boxes on the shelves of Walmart.

Ouch...

Size and diecast aside, you're right.

Basically, it's "the toy of the cartoon of the toy".

Thanks to the ThreeZero Facebook page, we have our first look at one of their newest offerings in the Deluxe size class, Transformers The Last Knight Optimus Prime!

Optimus appears here in the knight body style he picked up in Age of Extinction and held onto for The Last Knight. This body has been difficult for toys to replicate, so this is quite possibly the best looking figure this Prime design will ever get. Optimus got a single teaser image, showing him standing stoic with his sword. He looks to continue the trend of high levels of detail, paint work, and attention to the CAD file as has become common with the ThreeZero figures.

While we have no hard release date yet or a price, ThreeZero did indicate Prime is meant to come out this year, following the release of The Last Knight Bumblebee who is meant to see release this year as well.

Check out the image below, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!

Despite the fact that there's already a few 3P figures that looks almost as good in bot mode AND are transformable, only a 3-Zero style action figure can replicate the perfect screen accuracy of that insane design.
