BBTS IA Transformers on sale

Noticed Optimus, Nemesis and Ironhide are on sale now.

Not a good sign?

Good eye. Me thinks BBTS wants them to move. The ES’s were too big for the line.

If you saw a heat wave, would you wave back?

IA did sell them out at their store, it's in US that they don't sell as much. Don't get why though

The first statue (Soundwave) was a precursor of great things to come but sadly the art direction took a different direction. If IA were to continue in this direction, then I would have been broke. The ones they are offering are too stylized for my taste.

Soundwave and Ultra Magnus are things of beauty. Heard both Starscreams are as well but haven't seen them in person.

Rodimus is ok and Optimus is a disappointment.

SS on Throne is a masterpiece.

The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back in your pocket.

I still don't get the hate for Optimus at all or the reissued Soundwave. I have them both and think they are great. If that Optimus goes on sale my advice is to snag it.

Optimus is a solid piece but feels like a large scale LOC piece and not a weighty monster like Soundwave-Rodimus. They've taken liberty's with design to compete with XM's line and they've been a bit misleading about PVC being used in their large scale line as I'm still waiting on that vinyl Megatron price reduction.

Soundwave is a whole other story. I'm happy if anyone got an A+ second release statue. I had to return three of them to BBTS due to massive QC issues. The factory is to blame here. All three of mine had seating issues everywhere, paint missing on parts, unpainted magnets, magnets put in backwards, cracked bases, you name it I saw it. I've documented it in the IA Soundwave thread. The kicker is I own the first release and can tell you right now even if you got a perfect statue its still flawed. It's lighter then the first release, it's hollowed out more on every part with the base being the biggest offender. The piece doesn't even weigh the same as the first release and IA is still using the first releases weight on sales pages. How would anyone know unless you own both. There's a picture up in the Weta Lara Croft thread of someone getting a base with a bunch of melted down people imbedded in the base. One of my Soundwave legs was broke in half and looked almost like that picture.

Agree with the above about Optimus. Will add to that his pose kind of stinks, hunched over, makes him look small. Soundwave, Magnus and Rodimus are all standing up, straight and proud.

I'm waiting on that cheaper Megs as well. Hahahaha
